Toxic Liver Causes High Cholesterol

A congested liver is one reason people have high cholesterol, even though they may eat a very healthful diet and exercise regularly. Your liver creates more cholesterol than a normal diet contains. If you cut your cholesterol intake completely, your body would simply manufacture more. If you have high cholesterol, you may have stones or congestion in your liver. As stones grow and congestion increases, the pressure on the liver causes it to make less bile. It could be likened to your garden hose containing pebbles or small stones or having a kink. Much less water would flow through it, which in turn would decrease the ability of the hose to squirt out water.

THE TRUTH ABOUT CHOLESTEROL

THE TRUTH ABOUT CHOLESTEROL

The Truth About Cholesterol

More people are telling me that their cholesterol numbers are too high for their age when the number is only around 190.  This is a very good number. According to NIH 200 or less is considered very good. But that isn’t communicating to all health practitioners. The whole issue of cholesterol needs to be revisited because cholesterol lowering drugs are destroying many lives.

I just had a conversation with a friend last week. Her husband started taking a cholesterol-lowering drug several months ago.  He quit taking it after he ended up in serious pain and felt like he was dying. He can barely talk now. He has severe pain that travels throughout his body and manifests as severe cramps in various parts of his body.  It moves from his head to neck, or it may travel to his chest, or show up in his legs.  He never knows where it will strike. The pain is more severe than anything he has ever experienced.

8 Reasons to Ditch Sugar

8  Reasons to Ditch Sugar

8  Reasons to Ditch Sugar

Here are a few TOP TIPS to help you shed those pounds and feel great:

  1. Sugar is a major contributor to inflammation. Inflammation is a top cause of heart disease and nearly all other diseases. You can read more about inflammation in my book The Juice Ladys Anti-Inflammation Diet.
  2. Sugar makes you fat.  It is loaded with calories that are stored in fat cells.
  3. Sugar will raise your cholesterol. For years we were told it was fat that raised our cholesterol, but sugar is worse.
  4. Sugar makes you nervous. There is a clear link between excess sugar and disorders like anxiety, depression, and schizophrenia, because of high levels of insulin and adrenalin that get released with sugar consumption
  5. Sugar causes diabetes, kidney and heart problems.  Excess sugar can damage the pancreas’s ability to function properly.
  6. Sugar destroys your teeth.  Sugar increases the bacteria in your mouth that erodes enamel. The biggest problem with many popular toothpastes is that they contain sugar. They are not required to put the sugar on the label.
  7. Sugar suppresses the immune system.  Sugar beats out vitamin C in your immune cells and weakens them.
  8. Sugar causes wrinkles. A high-sugar diet damages collagen, the layer just below the skin that gives you that youthful appearance.
