Elevated cholesterol and C-reactive proteins are markers linked to heart attack, stroke, and other cardiovascular disorders. It is estimated that over 100 million Americans—more than a third of our population—suffer from these conditions. To combat these problems, modern science has created a group of drugs known as statins, available under such names as Lipitor, Zocor, and Pravachol. While over 20 million people take these medications, the fact is that up to 42 percent experience negative, often serious, side effects. Fortunately, other options are available. Here, for the first time, is a concise guide that explains the problems caused by statin drugs, and offers easy-to-follow strategies that will allow you to benefit from effective natural alternatives. Written by a highly qualified researcher and physician, Natural Alternatives to Lipitor, Zocor & Other Statin Drugs begins with a clear explanation of elevated cholesterol and C-reactive proteins. It then examines how statin drugs work to alleviate these problems, and discusses their possible side effects. Finally, the author highlights the most important natural alternatives, providing information on the science behind their claims, their proven effectiveness, and their suggested dosage. If you have elevated cholesterol and C-reactive proteins, or if you are currently using a statin drug, Natural Alternatives to Lipitor, Zocor & Other Statin Drugs can make a profound difference in the quality of your life.

• Proves that the majority of cases of stroke, heart attack, and hypertension can easily be prevented by maintaining the proper ratio of potassium to sodium in the diet. • Updated with scientific evidence from a recent Finnish study showing a 60 percent decline in deaths attributed to strokes and heart attacks. • Provides a comprehensive program for balancing body chemistry at the cellular level. High blood pressure is entirely preventable, without reliance on synthetic drugs. Dr. Moore's approach is simple: by maintaining the proper ratio of potassium to sodium in the diet, blood pressure can be regulated at the cellular level, preventing the development of hypertension and the high incidence of strokes and heart attacks associated with it. Dr. Moore updates this edition with a new preface reporting on the latest scientific research in support of his program. The most striking results come from Finland, where for several decades sodium chloride has been replaced nationwide with a commercial sodium/potassium mixture, resulting in a 60 percent decline nationwide in deaths attributed to strokes and heart attacks. Extrapolated to America, the Finnish statistics would mean 360,000 strokes prevented and 96,000 lives saved every year. Dr. Moore makes it clear that high blood pressure is only one symptom of an entire systemic imbalance. He outlines a safe, effective program that focuses on nutrition, weight loss, and exercise to bring the entire body chemistry into balance. For those currently taking blood pressure medications, he includes a chapter on working with your physician to ensure that any reduction in hypertension drugs can be effected gradually and safely.
