My Mum was on statins, she had dementia, a very clever woman indeed, if I had known what I know now, I would never have given her a statin, or the calcium tablets. Both of which contributed to her death.
Good article from the Daily Telegraph, but there is so much info out there, as to why we should not take statins.
Just as well, I never listen to the official line about dietary cholesterol, a load of codswallop. I eat as many eggs as I like, loads of Kerrygold butter (as it is the only butter that is made from the milk of non-cafo fed cows.) Oh the tbs of butter goes straight into my morning coffee. My levo I take at night, away from coffee. Cream, yes in my tea, fry with organic coconut oil, lather it on my skin, oil pull twice a day with it, eat avocados, and lots of Extra Virgin olive oil on my daily salad. I eat plenty of meat, eventhough, I would much prefer to buy organic meat, where to find it, and also the price. We can't do everything right, we would like too.
I take 125mcg of T4, and now self-medicate with 50mcg T3 in 4 split doses daily, and take 1 tsp extra virgin cod liver oil from Rosita. I take other supplements like vitamin D3 10.000 iu, magnesium l threonate and vitamin K2 Mk7, zinc, copper, astaxanthin, 12mg, the high dose.
These vits work synergistically, and put the calcium into the bones where it's needed, and not lain down as arterial plaque, and brain plaque. Brain plaque is now referred to as Diabetese type 111. Of course sugar is your worst enemy. So is fructose, it turns to glycogen in the liver, which is the same as alcohol. Interesting isn't it!!
I feel great, no thanks to the Docs.
