According to a World Health Organization (WHO) fact sheet, globally there are more than 1 billion overweight adults, at least 300 million of them obese.

This causes a major risk factor for chronic diseases, including type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hypertension and stroke, and certain forms of cancer.

The key causes are increased consumption of energy-dense foods high in saturated fats and sugars, and reduced physical activity.

The world is now confronted with 2.5 million deaths that can be directly attributable to these conditions related to obesity, and it’s even now filtering down to our children, as they are seeing staggering numbers of obesity and other health related concerns.

Just ten years ago, the World Health Organization called obesity the most visible, but neglected, public health problem in the world.

What does the future look like?

It is projected that by 2015, almost 2.3 billion adults will be overweight and more than 700 million will be obese.

Why are we gaining so much weight?

Diets in most countries around the world are moving toward a higher intake of packaged foods that are high in fat and sugar but with few (if any) vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. Generally one of the more significant reasons for this is big food company advertising and people just generally do not understand food, and packaged food ingredients.

The portion sizes are getting larger and one of the more significant reasons for the weight gain is the trend toward being less physically active. Our lifestyles today has us working at computers; we are driving to do our errands, we live with higher levels of stress, and generally doing less physical things all through our day.

Despite everything we do know, incredible numbers continue to gain weight. Obesity and overweight pose a major risk for chronic diseases, including type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hypertension and stroke, and certain forms of cancer.

Is there any good news?

The good news is that the weight you carry is really under YOUR control. If you’re overweight or obese and are worried about your weight, YOU need to make a decision to change that and get things under control.

You need to first understand that all those extra pounds didn’t appear overnight and won’t be dropped in a few weeks or a month. You need to focus on steady fat loss starting with a 90-day plan. Once you begin to lose the weight it will add up to smaller clothes sizes, you will feel better about yourself and have more energy.

Financial Incentive

According to a 2008 study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, dieters who had a financial incentive to lose weight were nearly five times as likely to meet their goal when compared with dieters who had no potential for a financial reward. Learn about the 90-day fat loss challenge to give you a greater motivation success – cash rewards.

Earlier this year the USA Food & Drug Administration announced that it has approved Crestor (rosuvastatin) for the primary prevention of cardiovascular disease in individuals who have NO CLINICALLY EVIDENT heart disease, but exhibit three risk factors.

Crestor is a statin drug that is designed to lower cholesterol. Statin drugs comes with an endless list of adverse side affects. The FDA has now approved this pharmaceutical drug to be prescribed to healthy people with no health condition.

This FDA decision will mean that an additional 6.5 million people in the USA will be confronted with the decision to take Statins, on the recommendation from there physician.

How does it makes sense that a healthy person should take a deadly drug to prevent disease?

Think about that for a minute. This is a big warning signal of what to expect in the years ahead. The pharmaceutical industry is positioning prescription drugs as nutrients; things you need to take on a regular basis in order to prevent disease.

Drugs for Prevention?

It seems we have come to a point when pharmaceutical medications are now becoming an acceptable form of prevention, when there are so many safe and effective lifestyle measures that can do a better job.

You don’t need to take a statin drug to reduce or even maintain your cholesterol. There is an abundance of great information that shows a good dietary lifestyle is the best preventative medicine, as well there are clinical proven natural health products to enhance your dietary changes.

Pharmaceutical vs Natural

Taking pharmaceutical drug vs natural is a matter of personal choice. Before making the choice you should look at clinically proven natural solutions that are safer and more effective.

The reason some physicians are not aware of alternatives to statin drugs is that they are natural, since drug companies can not trademark it they can not make big profits from it. Therefore they won’t make it or offer it to the marketplace. So who do you think is educating YOUR doctor? It might not be a nutrition based company….just YET!

Bios Life is the most effective, all-natural alternative to Statin medications. Bios Life has been clinically proven to raise HDL, lower LDL, lower triglyceride, lower homocystein, balance blood pressure, and balance blood sugars.

Cholesterol is the primary sterol present in all animal tissues. It is needed for proper formation and function of brain and nerve cells, and is found in every cell of the body.

It can be controlled through moderation in the diet in such foods as meats, butter, cheese, milk, eggs and cholesterol containing foods.

It should be controlled, as cholesterol is strongly linked to the development of arteriosclerosis, heart disease and stroke.

The Different Types Of Cholesterol

There are different types of cholesterol – and not all cholesterol is harmful.

    Low-density lipoprotein (or LDL) cholesterol is a bad type of cholesterol that is most likely to clog blood vessels, increasing your risk for heart disease.

    High-density lipoprotein (or HDL) cholesterol is a good type of cholesterol. HDL cholesterol helps clear the LDL cholesterol out of the blood and reduces your risk for heart disease.

Understanding the cholesterol test numbers.

When you do your cholesterol test, your report will show many numbers. Understanding what they mean, is extremely important.

The 6 numbers you will see are:

    TC – Total Cholesterol (LDL + HDL)
    LDL Cholesterol
    HDL Cholesterol
    CR – Cholesterol ratio
    VLDL – Triglycerides
    Homocystein

If your Total Cholesterol is too low, you also have a problem as cholesterol is required to produce hormones including sex hormones. But if your Total Cholesterol is very high because of high HDL Cholesterol reading, then your risk of Cardiovascular Disease is low.

HDL cholesterol, or “good” cholesterol, appears to scour the walls of blood vessels, cleaning out excess cholesterol. It then carries that excess cholesterol — which otherwise might have been used to make the “plaques” that cause coronary artery disease — back to the liver for processing.

So when we measure a person’s HDL cholesterol level, we seem to be measuring how vigorously the blood vessels are being “scrubbed” free of cholesterol.

To prevent heart attacks, strokes and other cardiovascular diseases, watch that you have a high HDL cholesterol, and low levels of Triglycerides and Homocystein levels.

When you have high LDL cholesterol doctors will prescribe you a Statin drug. However there are ways we can lower our LDL and increase our HDL cholesterol naturally?

  1. Exercise
  2. Lose Weight
  3. Stop Smoking
  4. Cut out Trans Fatty Foods
  5. Increase the monounsaturated fats in your diet.
  6. Decrease Alcohol consumed
  7. Add soluble fiber to your diet.
  8. Drinking Bios Life has been clinically proven to help restore and maintain healthy cholesterol levels 4 ways without adverse side effects.

Have you checked your cholesterol numbers lately?

According to American Heart Association (AMA) 25% of the population in the age group of 50+ are currently taking statin drugs. The most recent findings released by the AMA now state that 80% of the population in that same age group (50+) are eligible for statin therapy.

Statins have Serious Side Effects

Statistics show that the use Statins continue to increase but we are also becoming more aware of the serious side effects.

Even the drug companies have added warnings in the advertising that now state, “Unexplained muscle pain and weakness could be a sign of a rare but serious side effect and should be reported to your doctor right away.”

Muscle pain and muscle weakness are two of the main side effects of statin drugs. It is well documented that people experience aching in the shoulders, pain in the jaw, or muscle pain in the legs.

What are statin users doing to manage the pain?

While trying to manage the side effects many seek the services of a Chiropractor, Massage Therapist, Reflexologist, or other health professionals in an attempt to help them manage and cope with the chronic pain.

Unfortunately, many of these health professionals face failure in helping clients; without realizing they are losing the battle to statin therapy side effects.

The Chiropractic Associations are actively making its’ doctors aware and helping to educate them on identifying statin drug use in their patients because of the severity and long term damage.

New research from the University of Bern in Switzerland found that people who had taken statins suffered ‘significant’ muscle injury that was still detectable years after they stopped taking the drug. The researchers believe the muscle damage is serious enough to warrant a review of alternative cholesterol-lowering therapies for those who complain of muscle pains.

For patients requiring statin drugs, what else can they do?

As a heath care professional you have an obligation to help your clients by educating and offering them a natural, clinically proven, and safe options for cholesterol management.

Bios Life is a plant based fiber drink that has been clinically proven to raise HDL, lower LDL, lower triglyceride, lower homocystein, balance blood pressure, balance blood sugar within 60 days. The only side affect from Bios Life is weight loss (fat loss).
