Cholesterol – The Essential Nutrient

Cholesterol is absolutely essential for:

  • Brain structure and function
  • Every cell membrane
  • All nerve function
  • Many hormones: pregnenelone, androstenedione, DHEA, estrogen, progesterone, aldosterone, cortisol, testosterone
  • Ultimately for immune health & energy
  • Ability to make vitamin D when exposed to sun!

Deficiency of cholesterol in utero leads to

  • Autism
  • Pyloric stenosis
  • Mental retardation
  • Failure to thrive
  • Poor vision
  • Weak immune system-increased infections
  • Physical defects in many organs
  • Digestive problems

And throughout life, cholesterol dysfunction, ultimately due to excess stress, leads to:

  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Fatigue
  • Mental fog
  • Bile problems, stones, etc.
  • Immune problems
  • Atherosclerosis

Interestingly, stress raises cholesterol levels in blood but also raises fasting insulin levels, blood sugar and ultimately burns out the adrenals.

A total cholesterol below 150 can be harmful, especially to brain function and immune system. Of course, almost the only “cause” of too low cholesterol is the poisonous statin drugs – which I would not take for a trillion dollars!!

The best natural ways to lower cholesterol to ideal levels—160 to 190:

  • Timed release niacin, 500 mg each meal
  • Beta Sitosterol, 400 mg each meal
  • Autogenic Training, Basic Schultz CD
  • Physical exercise
  • Lecithin granules, 2 heaping tablespoons twice daily
  • Lots of fruits and veggies
  • Keep Body Mass Index 18 to 24
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Sleep 8 hours each night
