For some 8 months I have been exploring natural and safe ways to lower High Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein.
There is virtually no circumstance under which I would take statin drugs. Personally I consider them dangerous and one of the next epidemics of The Emperor’s New Drugs. It may take another 20 years but ultimately they are not the answer, for either cholesterol or for high sensitivity C-reactive protein.
Here are some natural ways to optimize this most critical indicator of the risk for heart attack, as well as stroke and many cancers.
- Keep Body Mass Index between 18 and 24
- No smoking
- Eat a diet low in Glycemic Index foods
- Deal with your anger, guilt, anxiety and depression!!! They inflame.
- Exercise a minimum of one hour a day
Optimal Supplements for lowering high sensitivity c-reactive protein are:
- Arginine, 2 grams twice daily
- Co-Q 10, 200 mg daily
- Glutamine, one tablespoon daily
- Alpha Lac Colostrum-400 Central Ave., Nebraska City, NE. 68410
There are some other possibilities. Nothing works in everyone. If the above supplements do not lower your high sensitivity C-reactive protein within one month, try:
- Boswellin, 1000 mg daily
- Curcumin, 1500 mg daily
Incidentally, as I reported in another post, much higher levels of iodine than previously though adequate are essential. Since iodine is a major protector against infection, I suspect that it may help lower high sensitivity C-reactive protein. Stay tuned.
Optimal levels of high sensitivity C-reactive protein are BELOW 1 ng/L. The average level is between 1 and 3 ng/L. Here is one of the critical areas where you want to be below average!
Dealing with your anger, guilt, anxiety and depression
I have dealt with these striking issues in over 30,000 patients. No one can afford the luxury of unresolved emotional distress.
In one of my favorite booklets, IRRITATION, THE DESTRUCTIVE FORCE, Torkom Saraydarian states that irritation produces IMPERIL, a toxic chemical which destroys the etheric nervous system.
The evidence is equally clear that these destructive emotional issues raise High Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein, leading to heart attack, as well as stroke and cancer. If you need help, ultimately you MUST solve your issues. I strongly recommend my book 90 DAYS TO STRESS-FREE LIVING. It was written for my patients and has served as a key to recovery for many thousands of individuals.
