The Choice is Yours: Lowering Cholesterol with Statin Drugs or the Natural Way

© 2005 - Frank Mangano

You can significantly lower cholesterol with the use of a certain type of prescription drug called statin drugs and suffer with the side effects. Or you can choose a natural means where the only side effect is better health. Statin drugs, long name HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors, slow down the production of cholesterol in the blood stream. This same reaction can be achieved with specific vitamins, minerals and herbs.

One such statin used for lowering cholesterol is Pravastatin, sold under the brand name Pravachol. The National Institute of Health (NIH) advises users to tell their doctors about any herbs, vitamins or other drugs they are taking because of reactions that can occur in combining Pravachol with other substances. It can be especially dangerous for anyone who consumes moderate amounts of alcohol.

Minor side effects from the cholesterol lowering drug Pravachol include heartburn and headache. That could leave patients seeking more drugs to deal with the uncomfortable, even crippling side effects. It is difficult to go about a day’s work with a headache and heartburn could be keeping high cholesterol sufferers on Pravachol up at night.

More serious side effects warrant immediate attention by a doctor. You might be lowering cholesterol, but muscle pain or weakness and a lack of energy could accompany it in rare cases. Also fever and a yellowing of the eyes or skin have been reported by some users with high cholesterol.

Those trying for lowering cholesterol can do it without drugs and the annoying or even harmful side effects. The same cholesterol lowering effects found in Pravastatin can be achieved through a proper diet, rich in certain vitamins and minerals. The proven method of treating high cholesterol is outlined in the Internet top seller, The 60 Day Prescription Free Cholesterol Cure.
