Tomatoes as treatment for:
Cancer (especially Prostate)
Famous for their high content of the
antioxidant lycopene, tomatoes already
have a good name! Tomatoes are filled
with various types of antioxidants and are
a great source of vitamin C. The combined
antioxidant super power of a tomato works
in protecting various areas of the body
including the blood stream and heart.

STATIN DRUGS MORE HARMFUL THAN HELPFUL?
Depression, low testosterone, and muscle pain are some of the common
side effects and that are due to the mechanism of how these drugs work.
“Statin” drugs (Crestor, Lipitor, Simvistatin etc.) are a group of drugs that
decrease the production of cholesterol by inhibiting the enzyme HMG CoA
reductase. The production of cholesterol by the body is actually an essential
component to several biological processes. The most basic function of
cholesterol is cell wall structure and without it cells are left vulnerable to
oxidative damage. If oxidative stress occurs the immune system responds by
increasing inflammation and plaque formation leading to atherosclerosis.
Another major function of cholesterol is its role in steroid hormone synthesis.
Without cholesterol hormones such as Vitamin D and Testosterone cannot be
made. Along this same pathway Co Q10 and serotonin are made as well.
Disruption in serotonin production is often associated with depression and or
insomnia. Lastly, muscle pain and weakness from “statin induced myopathy”
occurs due to the suppressed production of Co Q10. Some researchers believe
the reduction of Co Q10 relates to the development of diabetes increasing risk
by 10% in those taking a statin drug. Disrupting a normal biological pathway is
risky and there are approaches with food-as-medicine that address
inflammation, the underlying cause of heart disease and stroke, while lowering
cholesterol levels without blocking an essential metabolic pathway. In most
cases a therapeutic diet might be the best treatment and is always the best
What your Lipid Panel isn’t telling you
A standard Lipid Panel from the doctor’s office is often misleading or insufficient
for prediction of cardiovascular health. Half of the population that has suffered
from a heart attack had normal cholesterol levels according to The National
Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. Controversial to what most Americans are told,
it is not uncommon to see those with “high” cholesterol levels to live a long and
healthy heart attack free life. It is now
understood that the lipoprotein particles
responsible for transporting cholesterol
give a better indication of
cardiovascular health. Your standard
cholesterol panel uses algorithms
(calculations) to determine your
cholesterol make-up into HDL,
Triglycerides, and LDL molecules
rather than assessing actual particles
present. The bad cholesterol has
impact beyond this value and is sizespecific for risk factor.
Size Matters! It is only when these LDL particles become oxidized that they
become a threat to our health. Small dense LDL particles are more likely to be
oxidized than large buoyant particles. Small dense LDL particles or an increased
number of particles put someone at greater risk for atherosclerosis (plaque
formation). This could explain why a person can have high LDL numbers with
no CVD complications yet another person could have moderate LDL numbers
yet suffer from multiple CVD complications. What is a good marker for CVD?
LPP particle tests look at size of molecules, a particle count, and assessment of
inflammation the root cause of CVD!
