Statins and Your Health

Did you know that one out of four people over 45 are taking statins? This may be as many as 20 million people. This is despite the fact that there is almost a complete lack of benefit. It’s the emperor has no clothes but no one will report it and family practice doctors and cardiologist have blinders on so they can’t see.

It has been reported elsewhere on the various known harms here, here, here, here, at least.

Here is a summary of the latest research:

  • Look at the compared heart benefits of taking statins to taking the Mediterranean diet. It was no contest. Eat Mediterranean. There was no statin benefit.  (Read the full article here)
  • And as recently reported in the European Journal of Epidemiology, one notes a huge increase in heart disease in post-menopausal diabetic women that started taking statins.  Moral of the story: if you are diabetic don’t take statins. If you are not, we know from other research that statins will greatly increase your chances of becoming diabetic. (Read the full article here)
  • And most recently from The British Medical Journal, “Conclusions: High LDL-C is inversely associated with mortality in most people over 60 years.” (Read the full article here)

What does this mean? It means if you have HIGHER LDL cholesterol, you will live longer. You’ve been swindled and lied to for the past 30 years. Cholesterol is one of the most protected and regulated substances in the body. It makes up much of the brain, nervous system, cell membranes, hormones, and much more.

Statins are linked to premature Alzheimer’s, diabetes, increased liver cancer and why would anyone ever take them?

So don’t.

Eat a higher good fat diet, low in sugar and carbs, of natural organic food and you can be healthy.

Have a great week.

My LifeWorks Success Story

“Hi Jennifer,
“It is funny that you sent me this note as I was telling my mother that I wanted to let you know how I am doing and thank you for helping me get better.
“My GI issues have improved about 70% since I last saw you. The treatment you put me on helped a lot.
“I am still having liver gallbladder pain and burning in that area but I am better. I am doing beet juice to help clean and so far is going good, helping a lot. My HIDA scan was negative and since the beets are helping so much, I think I just have a lot of back-up bile that needs help getting out.
“If it were not for you, my GI issues still would have been terrible. I was really taken back by your note. (In a good way.)
“Most people in the medical field now-a-days don’t really care much about the patients and way more about making money. Thank you for taking your time to check in on me! It made my day.
“I still make use of the Restore and Aloe Vera. That stuff is amazing! That is why you saw my mother there. She goes to buy me some more once in a while.
“Sometime in the future, I would like to go back and see you again for more muscle testing.
“Thank you so much for everything.”

Is the New Needleless Flu Vaccine the Beginning of “Airborn” Vaccination?

Below is a recent article which first appeared in Vaccine News. It makes for some very scary reading…

In our society’s quest to fool our children into believing that life is a risk-free, pain-free endeavor where they are never supposed to experience anything bad, the latest development in the charade is the needle-free vaccine. As bad as forced vaccination is, we apparently make it worse for our children when we expose them to a little temporary pain.

But for the coming flu season anyway, kids will still get to experience a little bit of real life: Pediatricians, as well as vaccine advisers to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have rejected FluMist, the first nasal spray influenza vaccine, ostensibly because it has proven regularly ineffective at preventing the flu.

As reported by NBC News, new research appears to show that actual flu shots “provided significantly better protection” in recent years when compared to the nasal spray vaccine, says Dr. Henry Bernstein of Cohen’s Children’s Medical Center in New Hyde Park, New York. Bernstein is one of the physicians who issued a statement on flu vaccines published by the American Academy of Pediatrics, or AAP.

He went on to tell the news network that while parents want their kids to be protected against influenza and still have the choice of avoiding an injection, “I think that people recognize that flu vaccine is the best preventative measure that we have” to offer flu protection.

But is that really true? Or is there a different agenda – other than over-protecting our kids – at work here? Some believe that aerial spraying of vaccines is the eventual goal.

For its part, FluMist maker AstraZeneca defended its product and claimed that it was very effective, according to European studies. Also, the drug maker said, a Canadian study affirmed that aerosol versions of flu vaccine were effective when used on 52 Hutterite colonies in Alberta and Saskatchewan.

Proving aerosol vaccinations effective at delivering the proper dosage of a live virus is not something out of a science fiction movie plot. It’s a real concept, and it was recently approved for deployment in Australia, according to one report.

And The Liberty Beacon has also reported on the aerial vaccination concept, which is steadily progressing and is being tested via the release of chemtrails.

As noted by Global Research, a Canadian think tank, aerial spraying of a chemical aimed at eliminating Zika virus-carrying mosquitoes has already been approved by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, even though there was no prior evidence to suggest that the chemical would be effective.

In addition, the CDC published a proposed rule in mid-August that, if implemented, would grant the government authority (unto itself) to forcibly vaccinate Americans who have been forcibly quarantined as a way to control communicable diseases. While the method of vaccination was not specifically mentioned, the fact that the government and private industry are working together to perfect an aerosol version should give every freedom-loving citizen pause.

A Natural Approach to Cold and Flu Preventions

The very best way to treat colds and flu is to prevent them, and for reasons covered in the above article, many people are looking for natural alternatives to vaccines.

The best way to avoid the flu is to prevent it and at LifeWorks, we offer patients an immune-boosting IV called the Myers’ Cocktail.

The Myers’ Cocktail is a mixture of B vitamins, Vitamin C, calcium and magnesium. At LifeWorks, we also add homeopathics to the mixture; Engystol and Gripp-Heel to ease the symptoms of viral infection, Echinacea to stimulate the body’s defenses and Lymphomyosot to aid lymphatic flow.

Depending upon the patient’s individual requirement, the number of treatments required will vary from a one-time immune booster to a longer series of treatments.

But what if you have woken up with a scratch throat and the beginning of a runny nose?

Then you may be advised to get a Flu Myers which is a Myers’ Cocktail with added homeopathics to help the body fight infectious disease.

This powerful combination of ingredients makes this immune-boosting IV cocktail a safe, natural way to prepare for the flu season.

While LifeWorks doesn’t guarantee you will never catch another cold, Myers’ Cocktails offer a safe, healthy option in cold and flu prevention.

Note: These IVs have to be ordered by a LifeWorks practitioner, so an office visit will be required first.
