The following is an explanation of the three actual causes of clogged arteries, two of which are generally unknown. For anyone with cholesterol or cardiovascular problems, or for heavy dairy drinkers, this information can be very useful. This article is a set of compiled and edited excerpts from the natural healthcare book, Natural Cures “They” Don’t Want You to Know.
People are always talking about cholesterol, cholesterol, cholesterol. It’s a great business for the drug companies. They get you to believe you need to lower your cholesterol. But cholesterol is not the cause of heart disease. There are people with 600 cholesterol counts that have absolutely no arteriosclerosis, no blockages and no heart disease. And there are people with cholesterol counts of 100 who have massive blockages and are dropping dead from heart attacks and need triple bypass surgeries. The amount of cholesterol in your blood is not the problem. The problem only occurs when the cholesterol attaches itself to the artery, thus clogging the artery and restricting the blood flow. When it’s restricted you need bypass surgery, thus says the medical community. There are all-natural alternatives to bypass surgery as well, which are more effective, get to the root cause instead of just handling the symptom. The question, however, really is not how much cholesterol you have, but what causes the cholesterol to attach itself to the artery? The cholesterol will only attach itself to the artery when the artery is damaged. If the artery is not damaged the cholesterol just goes through the blood without any problem whatsoever, and you will never have heart disease no matter what your cholesterol count is. So the question is, what causes damage to the artery? Primarily, there are three things that cause the artery to get scarred. And its when the artery is scarred that the cholesterol begins the attaching process, and that’s how you get arteriosclerosis and heart disease.
1. Chlorinated water. Chlorine in the water that you drink and shower and bathe in or swim in causes massive scarring of the arteries, which in turn means, no matter how much cholesterol you have or don’t have, whatever cholesterol is there will attach itself and begin the clogging process. [Since our skin is the largest organ in the body, it has been reported that we absorb more toxins by taking one shower than by drinking five glasses of water. In a shower, not only is the water with all the toxins being absorbed through the skin, many of the most volatile and dangerous toxins are turned into a gas created by the steam. These toxic fumes in your shower are then inhaled. Steam rooms, hot tubs and swimming pools are places where you will absorb the highest levels of toxins. The paradox is we think of these particular areas as being the healthiest.]
2. Hydrogenated oils or trans fats. As you look at virtually 90 percent of the food produced in boxes, if you were to actually read the label you’d see the words “hydrogenated oil” or “partially hydrogenated oil.” These are trans fats. Margarine, for example, is hydrogenated oil. These trans fats scar the arteries, causing heart disease and arteriosclerosis.
3. Homogenized dairy products. People say, “Well I drink low fat milk or low fat yogurt.” The fat has nothing to do with it. You are being scammed, you are being lied to, you are being misled. It’s not the fat that is the problem. Keep in mind that when they make a low fat product, it’s not a natural product, it’s man-made. When dairy products are homogenized it turns the dairy products into a lethal man-made product. The clusters of molecules [in homogenized milk] are so small that when you ingest them they virtually scar your arteries. And the scarring of the arteries causes the LDL cholesterol to attach itself to the artery, which is one of the major causes or arteriosclerosis, which is one of the major causes of heart disease. Homogenized dairy products, whether they are yogurt, milk, or cheese, are all deadly. It is not the fat that is the problem in dairy, it’s the homogenization process.
These are the three major causes of arteriosclerosis.
