According to Cindy Mae, contributing writer for Yahoo Network,"The most common side effect of taking this type of medication is called rhabdomyolysis which is weakness and pain in the muscles. Polyneuropathy is also a side effect that causes weakness, tingling, and pain in the hands and feet along with difficulty walking. Heart Failure is one of the most dangerous and life threatening side effects. Dizziness is also a known side effect.
There are also several side effects that are believed to be linked to cholesterol medications but it is not proven at this time. Cognitive Impairment is one of the believed side effects which is the deficiency in the ability to think, perceive, reason or remember. In every single study that has been performed on rodents given the cholesterol medications, cancer has appeared. Pancreatic Rot and Depression have also been linked to this type of medication."
While many articles and studies are touting this pharmaceutical as prominently beneficial, even desiring that manufacturers make the dosages stronger than they currently are, little is written about these damaging side effects. Therefore, many are forced to accept this as their method of treatment WITHOUT KNOWING what is happening inside the body.
Equally silent are many knowledgeable individuals whose expertise falls within the homeopathic and naturopathic fields..the world of plants, minerals, vitamins....of natural curative powers of nature. I cannot feel that everything is being done for people globally about the dangers of high cholesterol when writers point out the basic dangers and causes and continue to rehash the same material within a small area of the multitude of cures available in alternative medicine.
Therefore, over the next few weeks, I will be discussing the different herbs, vitamins, minerals, and alternative methods, as well as their side effects, which one can use to make healthy changes to lower cholesterol levels. Certainly one method or formulation will work for anyone.
