For a Strong, Healthy Heart—Avoid Aspirin, HRT, and Statins

If you want a strong healthy heart, I suggest you listen to the American Heart Association's (AHA) new recommendations rather than its old recommendations.

That's right, the AHA is changing its mind again. First, it told us to take an aspirin a day. Now it's saying that aspirin could cause more harm than good. Heard this before? You have if you've been reading my newsletter!

Aspirin can cause bleeding in your stomach, intestines, and brain. There are lots of natural products you can use to thin your blood. Garlic, gingko, ginger, and vitamin E are all nature's blood thinners - and they work as well as aspirin (sometimes better) without aspirin's side effects.

At one time, the AHA told us to take hormone replacement therapy (HRT) to protect our hearts. Now studies show that it not only isn't protective ... it's downright harmful. (I have always taken a strong stand against traditional HRT. Menopause is NOT a disease. Most women DO NOT need any form of hormones. Even natural hormones. And HRT contributes to blood clots and breast cancer.)

Now the AHA is saying that women at risk for heart disease should take statin drugs and avoid antioxidants - because antioxidants block the action of statins. I predict that the AHA will change its mind about this, too. Statins have nasty side effects that I've talked about before. They can cause liver toxicity, dizziness, nausea, headaches, constipation, diarrhea, fatigue, blurred vision, heartburn, abdominal pain, and insomnia. What's more, statins block coenzyme Q10, a potent antioxidant found in abundance in the heart. CoQ10 and a healthy lifestyle are much more protective than statins!
