What Causes High Cholesterol

The what causes high cholesterol debate rages on. The answers you will find here are not on most other sites. Cholesterol is perhaps the most misunderstood substance in the body. It is also an important substance in your body. It is so important, it can save your life. To answer the question of what does high cholesterol mean, its best to understand a few basic concepts.

What Does Cholesterol Mean

Cholesterol is from the Greek Chole (means bile) and stereos (means solid, stiff).

Cholesterol is a wax like steroid that is transported by the blood. The number of children with high cholesterol is increasing.

The Cholesterol Debate

There is a never ending debate on cholesterol and satins to reduce it. On one side, there are billions to be made by pharmaceutical companies and paid public speaking doctors touting the benefits of cholesterol reducing drugs.

Why would someone put profits above the best interest of the public? Why would they not give the honest answer to what causes high cholesterol?

Research has found that women with lower cholesterol levels increase their risk of heart attack.

Studies show that elderly with low cholesterol die twice as often as people with high cholesterol.

In the studies promoting steroids and statins, certain causative factors have been overlooked. If these factors were measured, true culprit would not be cholesterol.

But what about the arteries blocking up and people having strokes and heart attacks? But the question is why? Why do only our arteries have this problem and not our veins? Why does our body make cholesterol in the first place?

Why Does Your Body Make Cholesterol?

Did you know that your liver makes cholesterol? Up to 80% of the cholesterol in your body is made by your liver. The other 20 to 30% comes from diet. When you eat more cholesterol, your liver makes less.

Your body can make between 900 to 3,000 milligrams of cholesterol every day. This is 10 times the maximum amount recommendation daily.

Depending on the health of your liver, you may be part of the 30% of people who are sensitive to the cholesterol in the diet. For these, the internal system that measures our cholesterol does not work and the cholesterol goes up. Or that is what the current thinking is.

What about the good cholesterol HDL (healthy) and the bad LDL (lousy) cholesterol.

To help remember that lousy LDL is bad, remember that lousy fats cause it. Lousy fats are saturated or hydrogenated, contribute to lousy cholesterol.

Cholesterol is an emergency paramedic crew inside our body. It responds to an alarm when something bad is happening. Because, unlike our outer body, inside our veins are not visible, it is sent out to make our body safe.

People who lowered their cholesterol after heart attack had increased additional heart attacks.

Another study on cholesterol found a link with low cholesterol and increased infection. When your cholesterol goes down, you increase your risk of infection.

Most of the anti cholesterol causes heart attack believers agree cholesterol is only responding to damage on the inside of our arteries. What they fail to say, what causes the damage.

There are two answers to what causes high cholesterol. In the case of young people with high cholesterol, homogenized milk may be the cause. Milk has an enzyme called xanthine oxidase (XO). It has the ability to oxidize, (think change) plasmalogen into a different substance. Plasmologen is part of what keeps our artery insides healthy. What about everyone else.

What Causes High Cholesterol

There is a second cause of artery damage. It is chronic and unintentional fluid and electrolyte imbalance. When we do not have enough water in our bodies and especially in our blood, the lining is at risk of damage from the excess acidity of the blood.

Once damaged, the body sends the cholesterol out to put a water proof (blood proof) band-aid on the damage.

Want to find if this is true or not? Simply try the water cures protocol. As long as the cholesterol has not calcified, within a few days your blood cholesterol will be lowered. Within three months, often in just weeks, if you follow the water cures protocol, your arteries will clean themselves.

Some of our clients have actually canceled bypass surgery by following our recommendations.

Take it a step further. When you have cholesterol running rampant through your body, what would happen when you add twice as much water to your diet as you currently consume? In addition of dilution, the increase of water will help everything inside us function better. Everything down to the cellular level.

This is the first part of what causes high blood pressure. There are secondary things that likewise cause increasing cholesterol levels. This is outside the glass thinking. Note the column to the right for more info.

Our Grandparents Knew About Mixing Hydration and Eating!

It is amazing how so many things that are new to us were common knowledge in the past. One basic practice of the Water Cures protocol is to drink at least 30-45 minutes before and 2 1/2 hours after a meal. This is not a new thought however. Notice what a magazine from 1925 had to say...

"Drink plenty of water two hours after each meal; drink none just before eating; and a small quantity if any at meal time. Do not take a bath until two hours after eating a meal, nor closer than one hour before eating. Drink a full glass of water both before and after the bath." (Golden Age, Sept. 9, 1925, pp. 784-785)

Heal Your Headache It Worked For Me

Hi, my name is Sharon. The webmaster of this site is my nurse, my personal water coach and my husband.

As this site was first being built, I had a headache and as usual took an Ibuprofen. Impatient for it to start working, I decided to try the Water Cures. I took a pinch of salt and a glass of water. Then I took a second pinch of salt and another glass of water. My headache was gone in less than 5 minutes.

From my personal experience, it usually takes 30 to 45 minutes for Ibuprofen to work. Some have found it takes ibuprofen 24 minutes to start working.

Yet on the Water Cures protocol, my headache was gone in 5 minutes.

Its simple: give your body what it needs and your body will give you what you need, the ability to feel great.

Water Cures was the solution for the elimination of my headache. It is what I will use from now on.

Why not give it a try yourself.
