This is a case study of a 68 year old male who had been taking Simvastatin for over two years.

Primary Complaints:

  • Abdominal gas and bloating
  • Depression
  • High Cholesterol
  • Joint Pains
  • Frequent muscle soreness
  • Joint stiffness
  • Family history of heart disease


Comprehensive blood testing and hair testing were ordered and evaluated.  This testing revealed the following:

  • Pre-diabetic
  • High Creatine Kinase (indicating muscle breakdown common with statin use)
  • High Cholesterol
  • Low thyroid function
  • Low platelets
  • Low Essential Minerals based on hair analysis
  • Sluggish excretion of toxic elements

His Program:

  • Lower carbohydrate load diet (40 grams per day)
  • Discontinued statin use (of his own volition)
  • Chelator (chlorella)
  • Lauricidin (isolate of coconut oil used as a pathogenic bactericidal agent)
  • Manganese
  • Vitamin B12
  • Multivitamin
  • Vitamin E
  • Fish oil
  • Calcium
  • Curcumin
  • Thyroid support
  • Digestive enzymes
  • Trace minerals
  • Vitamin C



Patient lost 17 pounds

  • Fasting glucose and A1C came down into normal range.
  • Lipid profile, including total, HDL, LDL and VLDL cholesterol improved (without statin medication)
  • Coronary risk has been reduced
  • Thyroid function starting to improve
  • Platelets coming up
  • Creatine Kinase (an indicator for the muscle breakdown common in statin use) has begun to come down

All results are in the absence of statin use.


To avoid dangerous side effects, understand that if you just feed the body the needed nutrients, many health situations begin to clear up on their own.  The choice is yours; improved health or side effects and reduced health.
