Dear Readers:

Most of you know that I was diagnosed with breast cancer last year.  I decided to be very pro-active about my health care and recovery.  Thus, I read and research a lot about cancer and how a healthy immune system is prime in prevention of cancer.   Here is another excerpt from an article about cholesterol and cancer that you will find interesting.  The link to the whole article is provided below the excerpt. 

Article Summary
  • Cholesterol is one of the most important molecules in your body and serves many functions including: cell membrane integrity and function; production of vitamin D; digestion; the precursor to hormones such as testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, and cortisol.
  • The truth is that total cholesterol has very little to do with living and dying. Studies confirm that between 160 and 260, there is very little difference is mortality.

  • Your perfect cholesterol level is unique to you and will be different from your best friend, your spouse, and your neighbor.

  • LDL has been considered the “bad” cholesterol and HDL the “good” cholesterol, but this version of the story is false. Humans and animals alike make LDL and HDL. Both serve the immune system and transport vital nutrients (like cholesterol and fat soluble vitamins) for a reason.

  • If your doctor is still measuring total cholesterol, ask for advanced lipid testing. You need to know the number of particles and the size of the particles which is much more relevant than total cholesterol, total LDL and total HDL. 
  • Here is a Top 10 list to achieve perfect cholesterol numbers for YOU:

·      Eat organic Paleo foods (real, whole foods)
·      Get sleep
·      Get sunshine
·      Get exercise
·      Get spinal sublaxations adjusted by a chiropractor
·      Get hydrated
·      Get grounded
·      Get away from environmental pollutants
·      Get evidence-based supplements
·      Get advanced testing. Total cholesterol is “old school” medicine. You need to know LDL and HDL particle number and size.
