Mainstream Medicine Wrong About Saturated Fat

Heart Surgeon Says Mainstream Medicine Wrong About Saturated Fat:

This heart surgeon is saying that he and his profession have been wrong for 30+ years. The regimen of statins and low-fat diets has not worked according to him.

"The cholesterol theory led to the no-fat, low-fat recommendations that in turn created the very foods now causing an epidemic of inflammation. Mainstream medicine made a terrible mistake when it advised people to avoid saturated fat in favor of foods high in omega-6 fats. We now have an epidemic of arterial inflammation leading to heart disease and other silent killers." (Lundell)

Yes, we have all heard the recommendations. They have hit us over the head with "fat is bad, fat is the killer" for decades. The problem in the USA has just been getting worse.

"The science that saturated fat alone causes heart disease is non-existent." (Lundell) That is a startling statement! Read on:

"The science that saturated fat raises blood cholesterol is also very weak. Since we now know that cholesterol is not the cause of heart disease, the concern about saturated fat is even more absurd today." (Lundell)

At the Holistic Health Services Holistic Health Service, we have known for years that the problem was the inflammation, not the cholesterol. We have been teaching this to our patients for quite some time.

There needs to be a shift in thinking. Many people are suffering from incorrect recommendations. What does Dr. Lundell say about these recommendations from mainstream medicine?

"These recommendations are no longer scientifically or morally defensible. The discovery a few years ago that inflammation in the artery wall is the real cause of heart disease is slowly leading to a paradigm shift in how heart disease and other chronic ailments will be treated." (Lundell)

Well, it has taken mainstream medicine a long time to come to this realization! It looks like the light of the truth is beginning to shine through! At the Holistic Health Services Holistic Health Service, we help individuals reduce their inflammation by changing their diets.

"Simply stated, without inflammation being present in the body, there is no way that cholesterol would accumulate in the wall of the blood vessel and cause heart disease and strokes. Without inflammation, cholesterol would move freely throughout the body as nature intended. It is inflammation that causes cholesterol to become trapped." (Lundell)

At. The Holistic Health Services Holistic Health Service, we guide our patients in an educational program so that they know what causes the damage from diets and how to avoid that inflammation.

"The injury and inflammation in our blood vessels is caused by the low-fat diet recommended for years by mainstream medicine." (Lundell)

We have been helping our patients at The Holistic Health Services Holistic Health Service avoid the concentrated sweets that are so dangerous to health. Dr. Lundell puts it very well:

" When you spike your blood sugar level several times a day, every day, it is exactly like taking sandpaper to the inside of your delicate blood vessels. While you may not be able to see it, rest assured it is there." (Lundell)

At the Holistic Health Services Holistic Health Service, we help our clients stabilize their blood sugar. we educate our clients to understand cravings and how to make comfortable choices. We know that many people are killing themselves with cake, pastries and the cheap bottled corn and vegetable oils sold in most grocery stores. They have been lured into the ignorance of "low fat" this and that. The real culprit was the hydrogenated oil, candy, sugar filled food and soft drinks, etc.

"Animal fats contain less than 20% omega-6 and are much less likely to cause inflammation than the supposedly healthy oils labeled polyunsaturated." (Lundell)

The good doctor is referring to those big jugs of cheap corn oil and vegetable oil on the shelf at the grocery store. That is the stuff that millions of Americans are cooking with as you read this. (Many of those same people are on statins! Wow!)

"The science that saturated fat alone causes heart disease is non-existent. The science that saturated fat raises blood cholesterol is also very weak. Since we now know that cholesterol is not the cause of heart disease, the concern about saturated fat is even more absurd today. What you can do is choose whole foods your grandmother served and not those your mom turned to as grocery store aisles filled with manufactured foods." (Lundell)

At Holistic Health Service, we know that most of the food sold in the grocery stores is garbage. It is not fit for human consumption. We teach our patients how to shop for healthy foods--and why!
