The Medical Test You Should NEVER Get
It happens like clockwork, doesn’t it?
Every time you go in for a medical appointment, some doctor or nurse wants to check your cholesterol.
They’ll even tell you the test could help save your life.
And that’s just wrong, wrong, and wrong.
The fact is, the cholesterol test may be one of the most misguided and dangerous tests around.
And skipping it could be the best thing you could do for your health.
Let me explain why.
There’s only one reason why mainstream medicine is obsessed with cholesterol.
Drug companies are driving the cholesterol craze so they can sell heart drugs like statins.
But cholesterol is a TERRIBLE test for determining who will have a heart attack.
Around half the people who have a heart attack each year have normal cholesterol levels. Plus, reducing your cholesterol levels does nothing to forestall a heart attack.
Finally, taking cholesterol drugs is a world of hurt for your body. The side effects of cholesterol drugs are well known (with severe muscle pain being at the top of the list).
But from my point of view, the worst part of cholesterol-lowering drugs is that they rob your body of CoQ10 (a powerful antioxidant and a source of mitochondrial energy for your whole body).
But if not a cholesterol test, then what?
A far better test is C-reactive protein. C-reactive protein measures inflammation in your body. Your heart health (and your whole-body health) are closely related to how much inflammation you have in your body.
So, get a C-reactive protein test and let me show you how to reduce inflammation:
Dr. Scott’s Inflammation-Dropping Program:
- There are many powerful natural anti-inflammatories you should take all the time. These include fish oil, curcumin, Boswellia, and others.
- Exercise is a great way to keep inflammation in check. Strangely, exercise increases inflammation for about an hour after exercise, but then it plummets to very low levels–resulting in an overall decrease in inflammation.
- Avoid processed foods and too much sugar. Both sugar and vegetable oils increase inflammation in the body.
- Eat your veggies. Vegetables have a way of calming inflammation.
- Take a probiotic. Your immune system (which controls inflammation) is closely tied to the health of your digestive tract. Make sure you are getting enough healthy bacteria by taking a good probiotic.
If you want to blow your doctor’s brain, ask him to run an apolipoprotein B (apoB) test.
AopB is a good measurement of the number of cholesterol-laden particles circulating in the blood and is a much better indicator of the threat of clogged arteries than any cholesterol level.
But remember, if you want to do one thing for your health that will have wide-ranging impact, then work to drop inflammation with every tool at your disposal.
Health and Happiness,
