Home' Nova West : November 2009 Contents There is no doubt about the
significance of cardiovascular
disease (CVD) in Australia and other
Western nations. In 2006, it was the largest
contributor (34 per cent) to all registered
deaths ¹. However, it is only since the
advent of cholesterol lowering drugs that
cholesterol has become "public enemy
number one" and has taken nearly all
the blame for the increase in CVD. As
a result, there is a growing belief that
the lower your cholesterol, the healthier
your body will be. The world has become
fixated on lowering cholesterol through
medication. Unfortunately, this has led to
a lot of misinformation and misdirection
in treating the real illness of CVD and its
The current ideology is far from the
truth and can be dangerous -- particularly
since the overwhelming current evidence
points to CVD as a result of poor lifestyle
and dietary choices that lead to
inflammation. In reality, CVD is no
longer considered a disorder of lipid
accumulation; instead, it is recognised as
a disease process characterised by low-
grade inflammation of the vascular lining
and an inappropriate wound healing of
blood vessels ². There is now extensive
and growing evidence that inflammation
is central to all stages of this disease, from
the initial lesion to end-stage thrombotic
complications 3,4,5,6. CVD is not a disease
of cholesterol or even cholesterol
Cholesterol is carried in the blood
in the form of lipoproteins, the type
being determined by the apoprotein, a
protein coating that acts as an emulsifier 7.
Accumulation of cholesterol arises when
low density lipoproteins (LDL) -- often
referred to as "bad cholesterol" -- deliver
more cholesterol than needed to the cells
and too few high density lipoproteins
(HDL) are available to carry it away from
degenerating cells. The relative balance
between these lipoproteins is determined
by various factors including genetics,
diet and insulin resistance. Low density
lipoprotein (LDL) and very low density
lipoprotein (VLDL) carry cholesterol
toward tissues 7, 8 . There is a demonstrated
relationship between the serum level of
LDLs and the relative risk of coronary
heart disease in high risk patients 9. In
contrast, high density lipoprotein (HDL)
carries cholesterol back to the liver and
is associated with protection against
cardiovascular disease. Cholesterol is
associated with the risk of CVD but it is
not the disease.
Cholesterol is a member of the large
family of chemical compounds known as
lipids (fats). However, cholesterol is a
separate, specialised type of lipid that is
chemically different from fat. Cholesterol
is a part of the subgroup "sterols", whereas
dietary and body fat are a part of the
subgroup "glyceryl esters". There are two
main categories of cholesterol. Dietary
cholesterol comes from the animal-
based food we consume and cannot be
measured by the doctor. The other type
of cholesterol is blood cholesterol, which
is made in the liver. Although the two
types are chemically identical, they are
not representative of each other. The

We've come to view cholesterol as 'public enemy number
one' in combating heart disease. But, suggests Dr Peter
Dingle PhD, it's really not the killer it's made out to be.
'Cholesterol is the messenger... telling us there is
stress on the liver; it delivers the news but is not
the killer it is made out to be.'
GERMAN NEW MEDICINE
SEMINARS OF THE PACIFIC RIM
Dr. Douglas J. Price licensed chiropractor of Hawaii, shares the
fascinating world of German New Medicine.
In 1981 Dr. R. G. Hamer a medical doctor and head internist of
an Oncology unit in Munich discovered that all diseases were
initiated by a biological conflict that leaves a visible mark in
the brain (confirmed by CAT Scan of the brain). German New
Medicine is a highly accurate system involving "Five Biological
Laws." At the onset of a Biological Conflict, induced by an
unanticipated event, our vital and emotional response will determine the illness or psychosis.
This happens simultaneously on the psyche, brain and organ. It is the realization of the conflict
shock and knowing what the triggers are that allows the psyche, brain and organ to go into
healing, otherwise the patient remains victim to his or her unconscious thought process that keep
them in their disease state.
Learn about the creation of the "Scientific Chart of Disease
Progression and Recession " which accurately describes the
Biological Conflict/ Cause of Each Disease and its manifestation
hases within the body.
