The connection Between Cholesterol, Hormones, and Health
As I conduct study and see patterns, it becomes clear that the body was built to cure itself. My ongoing study indicates that greater LDL cholesterol levels are caused by a lack of physiological and chemical demands.
That is, when your body runs low on important hormones such as testosterone, vitamin D, cortisol, adrenaline, and a variety of other substances, it responds by attempting to produce more.
Cholesterol is the building block for many of the body's important molecules. Assume the body is attempting to manage itself by producing more of the chemicals it requires, and cholesterol is a precursor. In that instance, it follows to reason that greater cholesterol levels are caused only by a chemical shortage and not by any other factor. When testosterone, D3, and adrenal supplements are combined, LDL levels fall.
When the body detects that the appropriate levels of the aforementioned substances are present, the liver ceases to produce cholesterol at excessive levels. But I need your assistance with this.
If you have high cholesterol, please have your testosterone and D3 levels evaluated. I'm seeking for a link between lower testosterone levels (less than 500 in a man or 60 in a woman) and lower D3 levels (less than 50 in either) and greater LDL cholesterol.
LDL cholesterol levels have been demonstrated in study and at my clinic to decrease as we address these two concerns and clean up the bile function. However, more research is needed in this area because the medical establishment has decided that statins are the only thing we should investigate when we observe high cholesterol and not vitamin deficiencies.
For example, taking a statin lowers LDL, which has a significant impact on D3 since your body produces D2, which is delivered to the kidney by LDL cholesterol. According to study, statins boost D2 synthesis in the liver.
This is due to the body attempting to release additional D2 to be converted to D3, but failing due to a lack of LDL. Furthermore, cholesterol serves as the foundation for all hormones. If your body need more testosterone, it stands to reason that it will produce more cholesterol in order to produce more testosterone.
This is why testosterone therapy frequently results in lower LDL cholesterol levels. Please get your labs done and come back to me if you have elevated cholesterol.
