High Cholesterol, Put on Lipitor, what should I take?
High cholesterol is a symptom of heart disease and low vitamin C intake. Treating the symptom (artificially lowering cholesterol) will, in my opinion, cause more harm than good.
Hey Mr. Fonorow,
My name is Glenn A[deleted]. I came across the Pauling Therapy while searching the internet for possible ways to remove plaque from arteries.
My b/p is 110/70 to 90/60. I have never had a heart attack nor by pass surgery.
My cardiologist started me on Lipitor 40mg per day after viewing my results=
Carotid US 3/21/12 revealed 50-59% blockage right carotid and 20-50% blockage left carotid.
Chemistry Panel 4/5/12
LDL N/A Tg1>400
Ch / HDL Ratio 9
LDL / HDL N/A
EKG was normal.
Please recommend products/therapy I should take.
You failed to include what I believe is the most important information about your situation: How much vitamin C are you and have you been supplementing?
Start with the protocol given in the following link. When you know you tolerance, we
can recommend a drink mix product (more convenient than pills without fillers, etc.)
In my experience, your total cholesterol will go down towards 180 mg/dl when you are taking the right (optimal) amount of vitamin C. This is also what a great deal of cholesterol and vitamin C research by E. Ginter shows. As the underlying heart disease (the fire) is put out (by vitamin C) your cholesterol will lower itself naturally.
Also there is a case described in my book http://www.practicingmedicinewithoutalicense.com/ (of my uncle) where a low dose of vitamin C and lysine completely cleared a carotid artery blockage of 50% in one month.
