Low Fat Low Cholesterol Diet Is The Culprit

The Healing Codes - Discover the Healing Codes 

The low fat low cholesterol diet recommended by mainstream medicine for over 6 decades, is causing the trauma and inflammation to the blood vessels that lead to heart disease and other chronic diseases. Read again! Such statement can raise a lot of eyebrows. If I don't have a little background on the raging controversy surrounding the cholesterol theory, I might dismiss this as just another of those jokes circulated in the internet for fun, or worse, for adding to the confusion.

A low fat low cholesterol diet is supposed to be  healthy....right? In an article I received in my mail, Dr. Lundell was very emphatic about this big mistake, ingrained into our consciousness for decades now. The conscience-stricken doctor is now on a self-imposed information drive to rectify this terrible blunder.

Lundell blames the no-fat, low-fat diet recommended by mainstream medicine because this has spawned the mainstream American diet, the very foods now causing an epidemic of inflammation, unparalleled in history. The advise to avoid saturated fat in favor of foods high in supposedly healthier omega-6 fat was a terrible mistake, and has led to the widespread incidence of heart disease and other chronic illnesses.

So, what precisely are causing these chronic inflammation? The notorious culprits, according to Dr. Lundell, are the trademarks of the typical American diet - the overload of simple, highly processed carbohydrates like sugar and flour, and all food products derived from them; and too much intake of omega-6 vegetable oil like soybean, corn, and sunflower, which is a component of most processed foods, to give it longer shelf life.

Omega-6 fatty acids are essential for the normal functioning of the body. However, it has to be present in proper balance with omega-3 fatty acids. An imbalance in favor of omega-6 would make the cells trigger the production of cytokines, chemicals that directly induce inflammation. The current American diet produces an imbalance of 15:1 up to 30:1 in favor of omega-6, when the optimal and healthy ratio should only be 3:1. Wow...that's a lot of inflammation generating cytokines!

"Getting Sick Is Forbidden" is a catch phrase going around our community as a reminder of the prohibitive cost of getting medical attention. I strive to maintain a healthy heart and good health, that's why I have no qualms in giving up most of my simple nutritional joys. Goodbye chocolates, pastries and cakes, carbonated drinks, processed foods. I don't worry, there are still a lot of options available for a healthy diet, though not necessarily as delectable.

Understand how simple, highly processed carbohydrates cause chronic inflammation, directly from Dr. Lundell, in his book - The Cure For Heart Disease. In this book, you'll also get to know what foods to avoid, and the foods to eat that will prevent inflammation from taking roots, and thus, revert heart condition.
