For more than 10 years I have been telling patients about the myth of cholesterol and its link to heart disease.

When I first started telling patients about this myth I could tell there was some disbelief and doubt in what I was telling them.

Finally, we are seeing more and more of the medical community coming out and admitting to one of the biggest health care mistakes ever made.  I’ve seen doctors coming out on national television telling the world they were mislead by biased research and manipulative marketing schemes.

Unfortunately, this misinformation has lead people to do the wrong things to prevent heart disease, strokes and heart attacks.    How many millions of people across the globe have….and will be….victims of this myth?

It’s time to start asking more questions about other commonly accepted health care beliefs and medical treatments of conditions like diabetes, cancer, autoimmune disease, arthritis, high blood pressure, insomnia and depression.  Doesn’t it seem odd that despite the advances in pharmaceutical drugs we are still seeing sky rocketing rates of these conditions?  Why is this?  Because the body is designed to heal itself without the use of man-made chemicals.  I have never seen a patient with a statin deficiency or someone lacking in vitamin “Prilosec”.

There IS a better way….

I see it everyday in my practice; people start to understand the true causes of disease and illness (stress, deficiencies, toxicities and inflammation).  Once we help them discover their unique imbalances we help them address the true causes of their suffering.

They are given the information and tools to be better stewards of their bodies and get the most from this very special life they have been given.   And get their lives back!

The video link below is just one example of how western medicine, Big Pharma and the food industry have changed our core beliefs and behaviors about how to achieve better health.  Enjoy this video and please share this message.  This myth has to stop before millions more suffer needlessly.
