My personal Experience with statins
If you have been diagnosed with high Cholesterol then chances are you have been advised to take Statins.
This is what I was advised to take about 5 years ago when I was diagnosed with
I did not take them
I am still here by the way ….. healthy and energetic and doing ok for my age…a young 61!
My clinic rang me a few times to come in and see the Doctor and so eventually I did. It was at this appointment that I told the Doctor I appreciated he had alerted me to my high cholesterol but I was not going to take Statins.
I gave the Doctor my reasons “why not” and we had a good 20 minute discussion where he told me that he could identify with my reasons why I would not take Statins. He also could see that my nutritional knowledge and background research on this topic allowed me to make informed decisions about my own health.
I had no other risk factor and was not willing to set myself up for any other complications or side effects that come from taking Statins.
That was 5 years ago.
The discussion I had with the Doctor that day is very much summarized in
on this website here
It totally speaks the truth!
Do what I did and take responsibility for your own health
