A very good friend of mine sent me an e-mail she received from her cousin, Dr Timothy Wood, a UK based Chiropractor & Wellness Physiologist. I found what he said very interesting and really enjoyed reading his mail – it was like having a cup of coffee with an energetic friend!
Here’s his first e-mail…
“Brisk walking and cycling can be more effective at reducing the chances of dying prematurely than being unfit and taking statins, a study has found. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/healthnews/9705992/Exercise-can-be-more-effective-at-cutting-deaths-than-statins-research.html
If you want to read some sensible information on cholesterol and its function in the body and relation to atheroslerosis. Please read this article
The are only 2 reasons that anyone is taking statins: 1) they can’t get off their backside and start exercising everyday; 2) their GP has bought into the Drug Companies million $$$ concept that cholesterol causes heart disease. This is a false! Read any physiology textbook. Lipoproteins are not cholesterol. They are carrier molecules that transport cholesterol. LDL is not bad. It provides an essential bodily function. Only when LDL
becomes oxidized from free radical proliferation does LDL become bad.. Cholesterol is not the cause of atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis is a by-product of the damage and repair cycle.
I make no apologies for this rant but today I have had enough of these flipping lies. Weird, out there, freeky, alternative health, whack jobs like myself have known this for years. It has started to pee me off that the basic physiology knowledge is being manipulated by unscrupulous drug companies to make enormous profits at the cost of peoples lives.
Last year GSK (GlaxoSmithKline) paid $3BILLION in the largest fraud case in US history http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-18673220 for lying, bribing, promoting antidepressants for unapproved uses, including treatment of children and adolescents. GSK said in a statement it would pay the fines through existing cash resources. Basically, It didn’t touch them! If you think their statement that “We have learnt from the mistakes that were made” covers stopping their barbaric, deliberate practice to hurt and keep people sick, then in my opinion, you are gullible.
By the way, no one went to jail for these crimes. Neither did anyone from Merck & Co. when 27,785 people died in early 2000s after taking arthritis drug Vioxx. Can you imagine that … if 27 000 people should die in any other industry it would be shut down in an instant; yet it continues … and no one goes to jail! Still think you’re not gullible?
I’d better stop now … just deleted another 2 paragraphs … in case you think I’ve lost the plot. In summary: a drug may be able to save your life but it will not and cannot, make you well. You can only do this by:
1) Moving often (this means getting up off your chair every 30mins and walking around or moving your spine PLUS exercising 5 days a week with 30 mins of moderate to high intensity exercise – this is entry level for basic health, I’m not even talking about optimal health);
2) Eat fresh , natural foods
3) Think Well (Attend to emotional, mental and spiritual matters)
right I’m off to attend to some of these matters or who knows I might need a drug or two
