Let Me Tell You My Story💦

 

In the last 10 years, my cholesterol has been on the high side, but my triglycerides were normal so I never really worried about it. I read a lot of articles on the cholesterol count, and it seems that research has made the assumption that Statins were not the answer. As long as your triglycerides were okay then the chances are you were going to be okay from your arteries clogging up. Because I exercise 5-6 days a week and believe I eat rather healthy, have the odd 2 or three glasses of wine of red wine per day and the odd cigar or two, and ride a motorbike the chances are I would live to a ripe old age.

Anyhow to cut a long story short for the last 6 months I have been drinking <a href=”http://www.lifechanging-water.com”>Kangen water</a>. I have religiously drunk at least 8 large (16 ounce/500 ml) glasses of the water per day. Basically, it is the only lifestyle habit I changed.

Yesterday I had to go to the doctor to get the results of my blood test that I got a week before. To my surprise and my doctor’s too, my cholesterol levels had come right down. My triglycerides were.09, normal is 2 (Australian numbers not the USA). My kidney function had shown deterioration for the last 4 years and the result yesterday was a normal reading. I was elated as I expected him to give me the normal, not so good result and tell me I had to go on a statin and go see a specialist about my kidneys.

So you can take my word for it, I am living proof that this <a href=”http://www.lifechanging-water.com”>Kangen Water</a> stuff is gold.

Now I must say:  This is my personal experience. I cannot guarantee that you will experience the same result.

I am not the only one that has had a good result from this water. A friend of ours who suffers from acid reflux swears by it. Another who has a bladder problem also is a great believer.

Look, I guess it looks like I am just plugging the machine and I am, because I believe it is worth every penny or cent (depending on what country you live in) to anyone with bad health or those who are athletic because of its hydration qualities or someone who wants to improve their well-being because of its ionizing, alkaline qualities, which in turn will help with their energy levels.

If you are someone who has some health issues or any other personal reason and you think this machine might be what you need then when you take the time to watch this video.

It has two parts: a 10-minute demonstration of what the Kangen Water product does, and there is also an 8-minute explanation of a great compensation plan if you are interested in making an income from it. It is possible to make several thousand per week in a short space in time.

This POWERFUL, yet SIMPLE compensation plan is unmatched in the home-based business arena. You can earn thousands of dollars by simply helping others get healthy.

Anyway, that is my story about my success with this machine in making my body as healthy and happy as can be. It could be good for you as well.

Common drugs can halt the progression of skin cancer

I read this article today online from the Australian Courier Mail. I thought it was rather interesting and hopefully promising for anyone that has developed skin cancer.

 

COMMON anti-inflammatory drugs could stop skin cancers turning into deadly ulcerated melanomas, Queensland researchers have found.

A study by the Brisbane-based QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute has shown that regular use of some anti-inflammatory painkillers including aspirin and ibuprofen reduce the likelihood of melanomas becoming ulcerated and thus worsening survival odds.

Statins, a popular cholesterol lowering drug, were also found to lower the risk of the condition, with researchers suggesting this medication might “modify inflammatory mechanisms in the body that cause melanomas to become ulcerated.”

Conversely, the 787-person study found that diabetes sufferers were at increased risk of developing ulcerated melanomas which occur when the top layer of skin disappears.

Lead researcher Lena von Schuckmann said further studies were needed, but the findings, published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology, were “really exciting.”

“Potentially, down the track, we can find some causations and potentially find some modifiable risk factors for melanoma ulcerations,” she said.

Meanwhile, a University of Queensland study released yesterday found that adding aspirin to some cancer drugs could boost their effectiveness.

The mouse study, published in journal Clinical Cancer Research, showed that mixing the painkiller with Sorafenib, a cancer inhibitor drug, “strongly enhanced its effectiveness” for treatment of lung cancer and melanomas with RAS genetic mutations.

Cancer Council Queensland chief executive Chris McMillian said ulcerated melanomas were associated with poorer survival outcomes because they were fast growing.

“Research into this area is vital to help us better understand how to detect and treat melanomas early to improve survival and reduce long-term effects on patients,” she said.

“If you notice a new spot on your skin or a change in the size, shape or colour of a spot, it’s important to visit your GP as early detection saves lives.”

Cholesterol Numbers – What do They Really Mean?

The Cholesterol number is essentially worthless” says Dr. Arthur Agatston.

I find this remark rather interesting. For the last 5 years I have been giving blood every 12 weeks, upon which I am given a cholesterol test. That test is usually on the high side and am sure would be put on some form of Statin drug by the medical profession if I chose to be examined by them.

I believe I live a fairly healthy lifestyle. I eat well and I exercise most days and stay away from any form of medication. When I read this article where they were commenting on a study which showed “heart attacks struck people whose cholesterol levels (below 200) deemed them safe based on long-held guidelines”.

I have always been of the opinion that Cholesterol is a natural function of the liver and once we start interfering with this that it puts our bodies out of balance.
I have to question the prescribing of statins for those with “High cholesterol” and if it is of any benefit or maybe a danger to your health.
My brother died this year at 70 years of age. He was of thin stature, lived a very healthy lifestyle, but had been on a statin drug for several years. He died suddenly from a heart attack. It left me asking the question about the accumulation of plaque in his body and if he had not been on a statin drug would his natural cholesterol levels kept the plaque at bay.

This article written by David S. Martin, CNN on cholesterol numbers is very interesting and leaves one with more questions and if you are on cholesterol lowering medication it might be worth getting another opinion on whether you should be on them.
