Hi! If you can remember, I started a thread about my father’s angina condition a few weeks ago. He recently returned to see his doctor and was told that his cholesterol levels were fine (I cant remember the exact number the total cholesterol and the HDL:LDL ratio were fine). The doctor gave him several tablets to take including a lipitor, which I found strange as Cy Wilson has written an article about how lipitors can be used to lower cholesterol, but my dad’s cholesterol is fine! I then read about some alarming side effects from lipitors, mainll from threads in 2002 and more recently by ‘Strongman’. These included muscle loss, headaches, liver damage etc… A few people were actively encouraging readers to stop taking lipitors. I then read a statement by TC saying that lipitors have been shown to have similar anti - inflammatory effects to fish oils and so there would be a benefit for somebody with a heart condition. Do you have an opinion on Lipitors?
On a similar note, how much fish oil would you recommend my father takes? He currently takes 1 EPA/DHA capsule (300mg) per day and he is concerned that I take 9!
Finally I’ve read that an increase in T-levels can be beneficial in helping blood flow. I’ve also read in “The alternative pharmacist” by Doug K. (I cant remember the surname sorry) that a substance in Tribulus called protodioscin can be beneficial for angina. Any thoughts on me getting my dad to try TRIBEX?
Thank you for your time, my father and I would really appreciate any feedback
