Cholesterol Drugs Fight Back – Dr. Carolyn Dean MD ND

Cholesterol Drugs Fight Back

June 12, 2015

In spite of the increasing awareness that cholesterol does not “cause” heart disease (it’s got more to do with inflammation, which is mostly due to magnesium deficiency!). In spite of 25 years of statin drugs not being able to “cure” heart disease (although cholesterol levels may drop, people don’t live longer on statins). In spite of statin-induced lower cholesterol levels causing erectile dysfunction (impotence) and neurologic dysfunction (dementia) and maybe because statins seem to be accumulating dangerous side effects, there is a new cholesterol drug on the block.

An injectable drug called evolocumab (Repatha) just received a 11-4 approval by an FDA advisory committee. A similar drug alirocumba (Praulent) was unanimously supported by all 15 members of the committee. They are so desperate for these drugs that the FDA isn’t even waiting for the outcome of clinical trials before approval.

The PCSK9 gene provides instructions for making a protein that helps regulate the amount of cholesterol in the bloodstream. These injectables inhibit the PCSK9 enzymes in the liver lowering the amount of low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol in the blood, potentially reducing the risk of clogged arteries and heart attacks. But again, cholesterol does not cause heart disease – inflammation does.

I haven’t yet found a reference that associates PCSK9 enzymes and magnesium, but I’m sure I will because magnesium is responsible for the proper functioning of 700-800 enzyme systems in the body. HMG-CoA reductase is another liver enzyme: it controls the rate of cholesterol production in the body but it needs magnesium in order to work. If there is too much cholesterol, HMG-CoA reductase reduces production. If magnesium is deficient, this activity is lost and cholesterol rises. Magnesium is therefore called a natural statin.

What causes elevated cholesterol? Diet, stress, lack of magnesium in 80% of the population, taking medications – especially those with fluoride molecules that bind up magnesium. What do I recommend for high cholesterol?

Read Chapter 6 in The Magnesium Miracle about “Cholesterol and Hypertension.” These are two conditions that respond to magnesium therapy. And note my comments about 245-250 being the average normal cholesterol when I was in medical school. To get therapeutic amounts of magnesium into your cells you need ReMag. More and more customers are telling us that they have tried many forms of magnesium but when they switched to ReMag they immediately noticed the difference. Besides ReMag, I recommend the other Total BodyReSet formulas for treating cholesterol. ReMyte to support the thyroid and adrenals; ReAline for a safe and gentle detox and RnA Drops to help make perfect cells.

Here are a few short testimonials from Total Body ReSet formula users:

“I got my cholesterol lab results back… and the numbers were lower… YAY. The doctor said that I should just keep doing what I’ve been doing (NO LIPITOR) and check again in 6 months.”

“Magnesium helps me sleep, keeps my heart from racing and keeps cholesterol in check.”

“My doctor is impressed with my cholesterol results, then I fess up that I haven’t taken the cholesterol drug since the end of 2013, when I began ReMag.”
