Statins are one of the most popular drugs in the United States, but there is increasing concern about their use and possible complications. Recently, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reemphasized that statins can cause injury to the liver, and that taking liver-function tests does not detect the early effects of statin complications.
 
The FDA now notes that statins can elevate blood sugar and increase risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. Also, the FDA has noted that there is a potential for muscle disease as a complication of taking statins. Yet another complication from statins that the FDA has noted — and that I have seen in a number of my patients — is cognitive defects, including memory loss.
 
All of these statin-induced complications — ulcers that form in diabetics, muscle diseases, and genitive defects — are indications for hyperbaric oxygen chamber therapy.
 
There are also nutrients that can help with cognitive defects. For instance, there was a report from the University of Miami on aloe vera for treatment for Alzheimer’s disease. It showed, for the first time, a significant decrease in the symptoms of Alzheimer’s. And even those on the aloe vera treatment regimen who did not show decrease in symptoms had no progression of symptoms.
 
The medical establishment has long held to the theory that elevated cholesterol causes cardiac problems. However, in my opinion, the problem is nanobacterial infection. The Mayo Clinic is also investigating this as the cause of atherosclerosis, particularly in the heart.
 
There are also data that suggest 93 percent of kidney stones cases are related to nanobacterial infection.
 
Nanobacterial infection can be effectively treated with a combination of chelation therapy and antibiotics. The nanobacteria covers itself with calcium and it takes the chelation to dissolve the calcium so the antibiotic can get to the bacteria and kill it.
 
More information on nanobacteria is available at the website NanoBiotec-us.
