1) According to the American Heart Association, nearly 70 percent of the U.S. population has some sort of heart disease.
2) Most people are having the wool pulled over their eyes when it comes to popular heart treatments. They’re being deceived by overpriced treatments that don’t work, are unnecessary or can be dangerous and even deadly.
3) There are scores of new natural cures and remedies for heart disease and heart problems that are being suppressed because they’re so effective and so affordable.
Coronary bypass surgery for atherosclerosis (hardening of arteries) is BIG business in America. Cardiologists do more than 400,000 bypasses a year, helping to fuel the $200 billion-a-year high-tech heart industry in this country.
A bypass surgery creates a detour or “bypass” around clogged, hardened arteries to restore blood flow to your heart using veins grafted from other parts of your body. But what heart surgeons aren’t telling you is
Hardening of arteries only happens in old people, right?
Shocking autopsy results from the Bogalusa Heart Study reveal extensive plaque build-up in “disease free” people aged 6 to 30 with as much as 71 percent blockage of arteries. Discover how to safely sweep deadly plaque out of your arteries and avoid a heart attack in my new Special Medical Briefing Report: A Doctor’s Treasury of Hushed Up Natural Heart Cures and Deadly Deceptions of Popular Heart Treatments.
Up to 85 percent of bypass surgeries are done on patients who don’t meet the criteria for this surgery.
In its journal, the American Medical Association admits that 44 percent of all coronary bypass surgeries are performed for inappropriate reasons.
As many as HALF of all bypass surgeries fail, requiring another bypass!
Recuperations from this highly-invasive surgery can take months, and some patients suffer lifetime impairments such as memory loss, chronic inflammation, even depression!
There’s zero proof that bypass surgery does much more than relieve heart pain, except in 15 percent of patients with very specific heart problems.
Up to 30 percent of vein grafts become blocked within one year.
The risk of death of bypass surgery can be as high as 15 percent, according to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute.
Coronary bypass graft $60,853
Open heart surgery $79,795
Three drug-eluting stents implanted and one week in the hospital $112,858
Heart valve surgery $100,000
Prescription heart medications $400 a month
For the past 20 years, the heart industry has made high cholesterol the demon behind heart attacks and strokes.
And their tactics have worked. More than 13 million American take cholesterol-lowering statin drugs and more than $22 billion a year is spent worldwide on these drugs, with the bulk of sales in the United States.
Cholesterol-lowering drugs based on
Did you know the $10 billion-a-year sales of Lipitor for lowering your cholesterol is based on a flawed study. The claim that high cholesterol can cause atherosclerosis is based on only 14 percent of actual patients studied. Learn more on page 28 of A Doctor’s Treasury of Hushed Up Natural Heart Cures and Deadly Deceptions of Popular Heart Treatments. Get it now!
In addition, a new study touting statins protecting people with normal cholesterol from heart attack and strokes should send statin sales through the roof!
What’s more, food manufacturers have jumped on the lower cholesterol bandwagon, touting healthy foods with no cholesterol or cholesterol lowering.
But you’re only hearing half the story!
What big drug companies and food makers don’t want you to know is
Nearly HALF of all heart attack victims have completely normal cholesterol,
16 clinical trials prove that the effect of diet on your cholesterol is minimal at most, lowering your cholesterol by only 2 to 4 percent,
Statin drugs do lower cholesterol, but they also deplete your body of CoEnzyme Q10 (CoQ10) and without enough CoQ10, your heart may fail!
Cholesterol is a vitally important substance which is needed to build our cells’ membranes and produce several key hormones. If cholesterol drops too low, you’re actually at risk of depression, says Psychomatic Medicine!
So what’s the real cholesterol story?
New research reveals that low levels of HDL good cholesterol put you at even greater risk for heart attack or stroke than high LDL cholesterol levels.

In fact, a Harvard Medical School study found that the ratio of low HDL cholesterol and high triglycerides is the strongest predictor of heart attack, even more accurate than the LDL/HDL ratio.
The same study states that people with the highest ratio of triglycerides to HDL cholesterol have a heart attack risk that’s 16 TIMES HIGHER than those with the lowest ratio!
Yet statin drugs do NOTHING to raise HDL good cholesterol or lower triglycerides!

U.S. government commission NOT greatly impressed by bypass surgeries.
The Office of Technology Assessment commissioned by the U.S. Congress says: “Coronary bypass surgery seems to give excellent symptomatic relief for angina pectoris [chest pains] but improvement diminishes with time and non-surgical treatment also produces good results.”
Deep Breathing: Without a correct breathing you have a poor cells oxygenation, an acidic pH of the blood, a low mitochondrial energy, a perfect terrain for cancer and all kind of degenerative diseases. If your breathing stops you are dead in max. 3 min, isn’t this a primordial condition to look after? The first thing we do when born is breathing and interestingly enough it is also what deteriorates at the fastest path during our life; along with worsening the breath habits, we must question if this is not the real reason of aging Aging is actually a deterioration of our respiration with metabolic consequences and organs degeneration due to lack of oxygen, an acidification of cells, calling for a progressing cells apoptosis.
Shallow breathing can produce similar symptoms of heart attack. Deep breathing and taking Provex CV which is a Natural Supplement that was researched and published in the American College of Cardiology to reduce the risk of heart disease which I recommend with Phytomega to lower LDL Cholesterol & Triglycerides while increasing the good cholesterol HDL & Co Q10.
Coenzyme Q10 or ubiquinone is an antioxidant can be found in many plant and animal cells. Patients with some chronic diseases such as congestive heart failure, angina pectoris, coronary artery disease, cardiomyopathy, and hypertension are Co enzyme Q10 deficient. Deficiency of coenzyme Q10 has been observed in patients after coronary revascularization. Studies have showed that Coenzyme Q10 is involved in the production of ATP and therefore is beneficial in preventing cellular damage during ischaemia-reperfusion injury. The clinical benefits are mainly due to its ability to improve energy production, antioxidant activity, and membrane stabilizing properties. Several studies showed that coenzyme Q could be useful in patients with congestive heart failure, angina pectoris, cardiomyopathy, coronary artery disease and in the preservation of myocardium. Strong evidence has now emerged supporting the role of oxidative stress and defective energy metabolism in the pathogenesis of many neurodegenerative disorders, such as Parkinsons disease (PD), Huntingtons disease (HD), and Alzheimer disease (AD). There is, therefore, a robust scientific rationale for testing this agent as a potential neuroprotective therapy. Levels of CoQ10 in the brain and other tissues in humans and animals have been shown to decline with age, further suggesting a potential therapeutic role in age-related neurodegenerative disorders.
Here are the top 10 home remedies for clogged arteries.
Garlic is one of the best remedies for clogged arteries. It helps widen blood vessels and improve blood circulation.
According to a 2007 study done at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, garlic can help relax blood vessels by up to 72 percent more than a placebo. Moreover, garlic lowers bad cholesterol levels and reduces the risk of heart attacks or strokes.
Add 3 chopped garlic cloves to a cup of milk and boil it. Allow it to cool and drink it daily before going to bed.
Also, include garlic in your cooking or take garlic supplements after consulting your doctor.
Turmeric is another spice that can help treat clogged arteries and make your heart healthy and more functional. Curcumin, the main component of turmeric, has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that help prevent blood platelets from forming clots.
Moreover, turmeric extracts can lower the level of low-density lipoproteins (LDL), or bad cholesterol,to reduce buildup in the arteries. It can also relax blood vessels and reduce the risk of a heart attack or stroke.
Add 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder and a little honey to a glass of warm milk. Drink it 1 or 2 times daily.
Take turmeric supplements. The usual recommended dosage is 400 to 600 mg 3 times daily. However, consult a doctor before taking any supplements.
Also, include turmeric powder in your cooking.
3. Cayenne Pepper
The compound capsaicin present in cayenne pepper prevents bad cholesterol, or LDL, oxidation. This in turn reduces bad cholesterol levels in the blood, which is one of the main reasons behind clogged arteries. It also improves blood circulation and reduces the risk of heart attack and stroke.
Add to1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper to a cup of hot water. Drink it 2 times daily for a few weeks.
You can also take cayenne supplements, but only after consulting your doctor.
Lemon is high in vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that helps improve blood pressure and reduce inflammation of the arteries. Plus, lemon helps lower blood cholesterol levels and keep arteries clear by preventing oxidative damage in the blood stream.
Mix the juice of 1 lemon in a glass of warm water, along with a little honey and black pepper powder. Drink it 1 or 2 times daily for a few weeks.
Alternatively, boil 1 tablespoon of lemon peels in 4 cups of water for 20 minutes. Strain and add honey. Drink 1 cup, 3 or 4 times daily for several weeks.
Ginger is another effective remedy for clogged arteries. It contains compounds like gingerols and shogaols that have cardiovascular benefits. Ginger prevents plaque buildup or lessens existing plaque by lowering total cholesterol and blocking oxidation of LDL.
Drink 2 to 3 cups of ginger tea daily. Make the tea by adding 1 teaspoon of grated ginger to a cup of hot water. Let it steep for 5 minutes, strain and add a little honey.
Alternatively, eat a small piece of raw ginger on an empty stomach daily or take ginger capsules after consulting your doctor.
Note: Do not use ginger remedies if ginger causes gastric upset or heartburn, or you have gallbladder problems or gallstones.
6. Fenugreek Seeds
You can also use fenugreek seeds to treat clogged arteries. These seeds have saponins that can help reduce the level of the artery-clogging LDL cholesterol. Moreover, the high amount of fiber in fenugreek seeds plays a key role in reducing bad cholesterol levels.
Soak 1 teaspoon of fenugreek seeds in water overnight. The next morning, eat the soaked seeds along with the water on an empty stomach.
Another option is to add 1 teaspoon of fenugreek seeds to 1 cup of water. Boil it for 5 minutes, strain and add a little honey. Drink it 1 or 2 times daily.
Follow either of these remedies daily for several months.
Finally Harvard is saying what I said 38 years ago that prevention is better than Intervention. Meditation is better than Medication.
The interplay between your brain and heart can be seen when looking at how your emotional and mental outlook colors your health especially your heart health. Intense anger, for example, boosts your heart attack risk five-fold, and your stroke risk three-fold.
Intense grief after the loss of a loved one also raises your risk of having a heart attack. The day immediately following your loss, your risk of a heart attack goes up by 21 times, and remains six times higher than normal for several weeks.1
Research also shows that people exposed to traumatic experiences, for example, combat veterans, New Orleans residents who went through Hurricane Katrina, and Greeks struggling through financial turmoil, have higher rates of cardiac problems than the general population.
Diatomaceous earthis a type of powder made from the sediment of fossilized algae found in bodies of water. Because the cells of these algae were high in a compound called silica, the dried powder produced from these fossils is about 80% to 90% silica. Early clinical research suggests that taking diatomaceous earth 250 mg three times daily for eight weeks reduces total cholesterol by up to 13.2% compared with baseline, and also reduces low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol and triglycerides in people with moderately high cholesterol.
Relax your way to lower blood pressure
The easiest way to lower blood pressure is by popping a pill. It takes just a few seconds and you are finished. But pills cost money and often have side effects. Fully relaxing your body and your mind for a few minutes a day could lower your systolic blood pressure (the top number of a blood pressure reading) by 10 points or more—at no cost, and with no side effects.
Researchers with the Benson-Henry Institute for Mind-Body Medicine at Harvard-affiliated Massachusetts General Hospital compared a stress management technique called the relaxation response with education about lifestyle changes such as sodium reduction, weight loss, and exercise. They found:
Blood pressure decreased more in the relaxation response group
32% of the volunteers in that group were able to eliminate one blood pressure medication and still keep their blood pressure under control, compared with 14% of the lifestyle group.
The relaxation response, developed by Harvard’s Dr. Herbert Benson, has been shown to reduce heart rate, blood pressure, breathing rate, and muscle tension. Here’s how to do it:
Select a word (such as “one” or “peace”), a short phrase, or a prayer to focus on.
Sit quietly in a comfortable position and close your eyes.
Relax your muscles, progressing from your feet to your calves, thighs, abdomen, and so on, up to your neck and face.
Breathe slowly through your nose, silently saying your focus word, phrase, or prayer to yourself as you exhale.
When other thoughts come to mind, don’t worry. Simply return your attention to your focus word, phrase, or prayer.
Do this for 10–20 minutes.
Sit quietly for a minute or so, then open your eyes.
Practice the relaxation response once or twice a day.
Blood pressure basics
Blood pressure is the force that a wave of blood propelled from the heart exerts on the arteries. It is measured at two points; each measurement is recorded in millimeters of mercury (mm Hg).
Systolic pressure gauges the pressure in the arteries at systole (SIS-tuh-lee), the instant when the heart contracts and pushes a wave of blood along the arterial tree (think “s” for squeeze). It is the top number of a blood pressure reading.
Diastolic pressure reflects the pressure during diastole (die-AS-tuh-lee), the brief period of relaxation between beats. It is the bottom number of a blood pressure reading.
Hypertension is the formal name for high blood pressure.
Blood pressure categories
Normal (optimal) less than 120 and less than 80
Prehypertension 120 – 139 or 80 – 89
Hypertension 140 or higher or 90 or higher
Prevent HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE?
Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness.
These victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously.
A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest.
A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again.
Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it to regain a normal rhythm.
In this way, heart attack victims can get help or to a hospital.
Many studies support the belief that having an upbeat and positive attitude will translate into living a longer, healthier life, and conversely, that a pessimistic outlook promotes ill health and can shave years off your life.
For example, in one study,1 the tendency to always expect the worst was linked to a 25 percent higher risk of dying before the age of 65.
Perhaps one of the most well-known forerunners of “the science of happiness” was Norman Cousins, who in 1964 was diagnosed with a life-threatening autoimmune disease.
After being given a 1 in 500 chance of recovery, Cousins created his own laughter therapy program, which he claims was the key to his ultimate recovery. He went on to write the book, “Anatomy of an Illness,” and established the Cousins Center for Psychoneuroimmunology2 in Los Angeles, California.
Atrial fibrillation, or A-Fib, is a type of irregular heartbeat that can increase your chances of suffering a blood clot or stroke.
Unfortunately, a lot of the drugs that are used to treat A-Fib come with a laundry list of side effects, like weight gain, extreme fatigue, trouble breathing, and even chest pains.
And these are the meds that are supposed to make you feel better!
In terms of natural remedies, there has been some really exciting research over the years about using vitamin C to reduce A-Fib episodes.
You see, there’s some strong evidence that A-Fib flare-ups can be linked to oxidative stress and inflammation. And that’s what got scientists wondering whether a strong antioxidant like vitamin C could help keep A-Fib in check.
One study looked at patients who had received coronary bypass surgery, as A-Fib is pretty common after this operation. The patients who got vitamin C along with beta blockers were only one-sixth as likely to develop A-Fib symptoms as those who got just the beta blockers.
In another study out of Greece, vitamin C reduced the incidence of A-Fib among post-op patients by about 27 percent. Patients were taking 500 mg twice a day.
The evidence is pretty good that vitamin C can play some role in the prevention and management of A-Fib, and it’s cheap and safe.
Any time you’re dealing with a heart issue, however, it’s important to loop your doctor into the conversation and let him know you want to give vitamin C a try. I can’t imagine he’ll object.
Reduce your LDL Cholesterol & triglycerides Naturally using Phytosterols. It might seem illogical that you could reduce your cholesterol by eating, but its true. Researchers discovered that pistachio nuts and sunflower seeds contain unique phytosterols that can block cholesterol from being absorbed into your bloodstream.
These phytosterols could also help prevent cancer and heart disease, treat enlarged prostate, and control blood sugar in diabetics. See my special report Five Forbidden Foods that Can Save Your Life for other delicious choices rich in these precious phytosterols.
The 3 reasons you should NEVER eat wheat — Yes, even “whole wheat”
There are 3 main reasons why wheat is a terrible food for your body and does more harm than good…
Reason #1 — Wheat causes blood sugar disruption, Glycation of your cells, increases AGING, weight gain & boosts Diabetes risk
Before I tell you why wheat can actually speed up the aging process in your body, let’s clarify some simple biochemistry in your body…
This deals with “glycation” in your body, and substances called Advanced Glycation End Products (AGEs). These nasty little compounds called AGEs speed up the aging process in your body including damage over time to your organs, your joints, and of course, wrinkled skin.
So with that said, what is one of the biggest factors that increase production of AGEs inside your body?
This may surprise you, but high blood sugar levels over time dramatically increase age-accelerating AGEs in your body.
This is why type 2 diabetics many times appear that they have not aged well and look older than their real age. But this age-increasing effect is NOT just limited to diabetics.
So, let’s get back to how “whole wheat” relates to this…
Here is a little-known fact that’s often covered up by the massive marketing campaigns by giant food companies that want you to believe that “whole wheat” is healthy for you…
… But the fact is that wheat contains a very unusual type of carbohydrate (not found in other foods) called Amylopectin-A, which has been found in some tests to spike your blood sugar HIGHER than even pure table sugar.
In fact, amylopectin-A (from wheat) raises your blood sugar MORE than almost any other carbohydrate source on earth based on blood sugar response testing that’s documented in studies.
This means that wheat-based foods such as breads, bagels, cereals, muffins, and other baked goods often cause MUCH higher blood sugar levels than most other carbohydrate sources.
If you don’t believe me, here’s something you should know… I ran personal blood sugar tests on myself using a blood glucometer about 45 minutes after eating 2 slices of wheat bread vs eating a bowl of oatmeal, with equivalent grams of carbohydrates.
The blood sugar test results of wheat vs oatmeal:
2 slices of whole wheat toast:
45 minutes after consumption: Blood sugar spiked from 86 fasting level to 155
1 Bowl of Oatmeal (equivalent grams of carbs to 2 slices wheat toast)
45 minutes after consumption: Blood sugar increased from 86 fasting level to 112
As you know now, the higher your average blood sugar levels are over time, the more AGEs are formed inside your body, which makes you age FASTER.
Clearly, the whole wheat spiked blood sugar MUCH higher than the oatmeal, and if you don’t know, 155 is a massive blood sugar reading that will certainly contribute to faster aging if you eat wheat frequently… and most people eat wheat without even thinking about it at almost EVERY meal…Yikes!
Not only that, but the high blood sugar spikes caused by wheat also makes your body pump out more insulin which makes you pack on more body fat… Not fun at all!
These massive blood sugar spikes from eating wheat daily also cause damage over time to your blood sugar regulation system, harming your pancreas, causing insulin resistance, and eventually causing type 2 Diabetes. I think we have a strong case against eating so-called “healthy” wheat!
Reason #2 — Gluten and other gut-damaging compounds
The topic of gluten is on fire in the media lately…
…But most people are confused as to whether there’s any real health risks with gluten for the average person that doesn’t have Celiac disease.
The truth is that even if you are not officially “gluten intolerant” or “gluten sensitive”, there are hundreds of published studies that indicate that gluten can cause inflammation in your digestive system, and even cause “permeability” in your gut, which can lead to a health condition that’s on the rise lately called Leaky Gut, as well as other digestive issues and autoimmune problems.
Scientists theorize that the reason gluten is causing these digestive system problems is due to the excessive hybridization of wheat over the last 50 years, which has created newly modified gluten molecules that are foreign to the human digestive system compared to the ancient wheat that humans ate for several thousand years historically, and even compared to the wheat that your grandparents ate 50+ years ago.
Reason #3 — Antinutrients and mineral blockers in wheat
The third reason that wheat is terrible for you is that it contains what’s called “antinutrients”, which are naturally occurring compounds in the wheat plant, but can cause undesirable effects in humans that eat too much of them.
One of these antinutrients is called phytates, which blocks the absorption in your body of certain minerals like zinc, iron, manganese, and calcium if you eat wheat too often.
Again, most people eat wheat with almost every meal (cereal in the morning, bread on sandwich at lunch, and pasta or bread at dinner), so this can cause a mineral deficiency in your body over time that leads to many health conditions.
Wheat has other mineral blockers and antinutrients aside from phytates, such as lectins. Lectins are another constituent of wheat that causes gut irritation. Yet another reason to minimize or eliminate wheat from your diet.
There’s absolutely nothing “essential” about wheat in the human diet…It simply does more harm than good…period.
Many people often ask me… “But what about the FIBER in wheat? I thought that’s why it’s supposed to be healthy?”
Sorry, you can get ALL of the fiber you need from fruits, veggies, and nuts, without the digestive system damage and massive blood sugar issues that are caused by wheat.
Note: It’s important to keep reading this page because I’ll show you how to get access to ALL of my best secrets for AVOIDING wheat, but still eating amazingly delicious meals that BOOST your metabolism, BALANCE your hormones, FIGHT diabetes, and also help reduce abdominal fat. It’s easier than you think, so don’t think that eating healthy has to be “boring” like so many people foolishly believe.
The 3 reasons you should NEVER use Vegetable Oils…
Although vegetable oil has a healthy sounding name, it’s NOT made from vegetables…As you might already know, vegetable oil actually comes from any combination of corn oil, soybean oil, canola oil, safflower oil, and/or cottonseed oil, ALL of which are absolutely terrible for your health.
In fact, they are downright deadly, and I’m not exaggerating. Here’s why…
Reason #1 — Vegetable oils usually contain deadly trans fats, even if non-hydrogenated
You already KNOW that trans fats are deadly, so I won’t go into all of the science as to why trans fats kill you and DAMAGE your cell membranes in your body…leading to all sorts of scary health problems like cancer, obesity, Alzheimer’s, heart disease, and more.
Knowing these facts, I’m sure you already know to stay away from foods that contain partially hydrogenated vegetable oils. You’ve heard that a million times before.
However, what you probably DON’T know is that even non-hydrogenated vegetable oils (all vegetable oils are refined) also contain some trans fats due to the extremely high heat, solvents, and pressure they are exposed to during the refining process. And yes, this includes so-called “expeller pressed” vegetable oils as well.
All of this high heat and high pressure processing along with the use of hexane solvents actually forces some of the polyunsaturated content of vegetable oils (yes, even so-called “healthy” canola oil) to be transformed into trans fats and something even worse that we’ll talk about in a minute called “MegaTrans”.
According to Dr. Mary Enig, PhD, and Nutritional Biochemist, “Although the Canadian government lists the trans fat content of canola at a minimal 0.2 percent, research at the University of Florida at Gainesville, found trans fat levels as high as 4.6 percent in commercial liquid canola oil”.
And this is the garbage that the government and giant food conglomerates are marketing to you as a “healthy oil”! Don’t fall for it.
Reason #2 — Vegetable oils contain oxidized “mutated fats” that are worse than trans fat & CAUSE heart attacks
All vegetable oils contain oxidized fats due to the refining process and chemical reactions with the polyunsaturated fat content of vegetable oils.
Expert Nutrition author, Catherine Shanahan, MD, calls the fats in vegetable oils “MegaTrans”, because they are similar in chemistry to trans fats, but even WORSE.
And MegaTrans from vegetable oils are found in almost ALL processed packaged foods, as well as virtually ALL restaurant fryers.
French Fries proven to immediately harm your arteries after eating them:
Free radicals formed during the refining of vegetable oils create these “mutant” fats, which damage your cell membranes & chromosomes, and create massive inflammation in your body.
The free radicals in vegetable oils also damage your arteries, which can directly lead to a heart attack. Please be aware that this isn’t just a long-term risk of eating vegetable oils daily.
There are also studies that show immediate dysfunction in your arteries, also called endothelial function.
Catherine Shanahan, MD, cites in her book Deep Nutrition a study from New Zealand that showed that subjects who ate french fries from a restaurant fryer displayed immediate harm to their endothelial function of their arteries, going from a normal 7% dilation before eating the french fries to almost NO dilation at all (only 1%) AFTER eating the french fries. This is one thing that can cause a heart attack.
If you think I’m exaggerating, think again…
Dr Shanahan also surveyed hundreds of patients that were admitted to the hospital for a heart attack, and discovered that every single patient that just had a heart attack had consumed foods made with vegetable oils with their last meal before the heart attack…Scary huh!
Think about THAT next time you order the fries with that sandwich on the menu! It really is THAT serious.
Always ask to replace french fries that come with most meals with side veggies, fruit, or a salad instead. That may very well be the difference between dying tomorrow or enjoying many more years on this beautiful planet.
Reason #3 — Vegetable oils cause massive imbalances with your Omega-6 to Omega-3 fats ratio
One of the other MAJOR reasons that vegetable oils are killing you is they are mostly made up of inflammatory omega-6 fats, while having very little anti-inflammatory omega-3 fats.
The healthiest ratio from the scientific literature appears to be a ratio of 2:1 or even 1:1 for your omega-6 to omega-3 ratio. However, most vegetable oils skew your ratio as high as 20:1 or even 30:1 in favor of harmful inflammatory omega-6 fats.
And worse yet, these omega-6 fats are NOT the innocent type found in nuts, they are the “mutant” damaged MegaTrans type that harm the tissues of your body.
This Omega fat imbalance can be YET another reason why vegetable oils lead to heart disease, cancer, obesity, and many other degenerative diseases that WILL shorten your life significantly if you don’t cut out the vegetable oils ASAP.
As a quick note, the solution to all of these major problems with vegetable oils is to use healthy oils like coconut oil, olive oil, macadamia oil, avocado oil, and grass-fed butter, all of which are MUCH healthier than vegetable oils and don’t cause any of the problems we’ve described in this section of the article.
The TRUTH about sugar… You can’t just “burn off” sugar…
You’ve heard a million times from health experts, bloggers, and on the news that sugar is terrible for you, but most people don’t truly understand WHY it’s so bad…
In fact, most people falsely think that if they eat sugar, they can just exercise a little bit harder that day or the next day so they can “burn it off”…
Unfortunately, that kind of thinking will lead you to an early grave.
It’s not as simple as just “burning off sugar”…
It’s about what sugar does internally to the cells of your body, and how sugar gums up your internal workings, causing disease.
Once again, I’m not exaggerating here, so pay close attention…
If you knew exactly why sugar is so bad for you and exactly what it does to your cells in your body, I promise that you would think twice about eating that piece of cake, candy, sugary soft drink, fruit juice, or ice cream, or feeding them to your children.
Here are just a few of the reasons that sugar is killing you…
Just like we talked about above with wheat, sugar also causes extreme fluctuations in your blood sugar, and excess blood sugar causes Glycation inside your body, which accelerates the rate of aging of your organs, skin, arteries, and joints.
Sugar also raises your triglycerides to dangerous levels, which can lead you to heart disease.
If that weren’t bad enough, eating sugar too frequently also causes type 2 diabetes in the long run because you wear out your pancreas and insulin sensitivity.
And if you need even MORE reasons why sugar will kill you, sugar also slows down your white blood cells, making infection more likely, and even allowing CANCER cells a better chance to form in your body.
Scary stuff huh!
Of course, you already know that sugar makes you fat, and gives you excess calories without any beneficial nutrients whatsoever.
To clarify, when we talk about how much damage sugar does to your body, we’re NOT talking about tiny amounts such as having 5 grams of sugar from a teaspoon of honey in your tea… Small amounts of natural sugar like that are not a problem.
The REAL damage occurs when you eat that piece of cake and ingest 40-50 grams of sugar in one sitting, or that bag of candy with 35+ grams of sugar, or that soft drink with 45 grams of sugar or more…
Or even that so-called “healthy” smoothie at the local smoothie shop that contains a whopping 80 grams of sugar because of all of the fruit syrups they use in them.
Now that you know why sugar, wheat, and vegetable oils are killing you and your family, maybe you’ll think twice about eating cereals, breads, bagels, muffins, candy, and processed foods or fried foods from restaurants that are cooked in vegetable oil.
Here are some examples of foods below that you might be eating and didn’t even realize they are making you fatter, and making your fat cells “sick”…
So-Called “Health Foods” That Are Causing You to GAIN More Body Fat?
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve walked into the kitchen of a client of mine that has hired me for nutritional counseling, and I’m shocked by what I see…
Almost every time, I see their kitchen cabinets and fridge LOADED with foods that they think are “healthy” (or have been deceived by clever food labels into believing are healthy), but in reality are fat-storing traps in disguise.
It’s not uncommon to see foods such as:
whole grain breads
whole grain cereals
whole grain crackers (more of that wheat that’s killing you)
tofu or “veggie burgers” (non-fermented soy can be harmful to your hormones)
orange juice (loaded with too much fructose that raises your triglycerides)
skim milk or homogenized milk
margarine (deadly trans fat or even “MegaTrans”)
pre-packaged “diet” dinners
protein bars (most are candy bars in disguise!)
overly processed meal replacements (with more junk than healthy ingredients)
rice cakes (massive blood sugar spike)
pasta (more wheat to age you faster)
diet ice cream or diet desserts
so-called “energy” drinks
low-fat foods (usually replaces fat with more sugar)
low-carb processed foods
soybean oil, corn oil, canola oil
I see this trend over and over again with almost every client when I first inspect their cabinets and the foods that they were buying that they thought were healthy.
What they don’t realize is that it’s these exact foods that are sabotaging their fat loss efforts, increasing their cravings, and throwing their hormones out of whack..
Here’s Your Simple Fat Loss Solution…
So how do you repair your damaged digestive system and start melting away your embarrassing belly fat, while also increasing your energy, & fighting joint pain?
The simplest way is to get rid of the foods you now KNOW are damaging your system.
Second, add fermentable fibers to your diet, which are also called prebiotics (sweet potato, yam, yucca, etc.) and eat a lot of fermented foods like kefir, sauerkraut, and certain types of yogurt (but most yogurts found in your grocery store are simply milk with sugar and are NOT healthy) You can also supplement with probiotics, but make sure to start slow and build up.
Third, better manage your stress through better sleep patterns, exercise, and breathing techniques. Stress is known to damage your gut, so the better you handle it, the healthier your gut will be.
The Fat Burning Kitchen ProgramFourth, start adding Turmeric to your diet, either with supplements or sprinkling the spice on your food. Turmeric aids your liver in flushing out the toxic substances that have been building there due to your damaged gut. It also fights dangerous inflammation
But, most importantly, you should get rid of those health foods causing you all those problems, and start consuming the ACTUAL foods that help you BURN stubborn belly fat, fix your hormones, fight against Diabetes, and help you look and feel YEARS younger

Did you know…
One of your body’s main fat-burning hormones DECREASES when you go on a diet?
Research has shown that this important hormone drops by as much as 50% after just 7 days of dieting!
The worst part is, the longer you try to diet, the worse it gets, which is why many “serial dieters” constantly struggle to keep the weight off (if they lose it at all…)
The good news is we’re going to share the nutrition tricks to INCREASE your body’s natural fat-burning hormones safely and naturally!
Importance of Potassium & Magnesium for Heart Health:
If youre over 65, I bet youve probably been hearing a lot about congestive heart failure lately. Not from the press, mind you but perhaps because so many of your friends and relatives may be dealing with it.
In truth, heart failure has reached epidemic proportions in the US and worldwide. Its a serious condition with a high fatality rate that has doctors confounded and concerned.
But a New Discovery Is Saving Hearts and Lives!
Believe it or not, a brand new study shows that a common mineral supplement which costs just pennies can reduce the chance of dying by more than 500%!
You see, doctors diagnose heart failure by something called ejection fraction which is a measure of how much blood the heart is able to pump with each stroke. Healthy hearts have an ejection fraction over 60%. But, as the heart becomes weaker from heart failure, the ejection fraction decreases.
Also, when the heart is failing, it produces a substance called brain natriuretic peptide (BNP). The higher the BNP levels are, the worse the heart failure is.
So, heres whats really interesting. When researchers examined a group of men and women with heart failure whose hearts had an ejection fraction of less than 45% and high BNP levels, they made a fascinating discovery
They All Were Low in a Mineral Thats Crucial for Heart Health!
You see, heart cells cant produce sufficient energy when they are low on this mineral (which I identify in this Special Report). So a deficiency in this mineral is very likely to cause more problems. And thats exactly what the researchers found.
The patients with the potassium/magnesium deficiency were 5 times more likely to have either died or had a heart attack compared to those with normal levels!
