Reverse Heart Disease – Project 150, What is it?
Project 150 stands for our heart disease reversal program. 150 comes from clues observed from the famous Framingham, MA heart study. That is, no one ever died of a heart attack with a cholesterol level of 150mg/dL or below.
In 1948 the Framingham Heart Study began under the direction of the National Heart Institute. Today it is known as the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLB). The study looked at over 5,000 men and women between the ages of 30 and 62 years of age. Extensive physical examinations and lifestyle interviews were conducted. Throughout the years, generations were followed. This lasted up and until the early 2000s.
Framingham Heart Study – What was learned?
Much was learned from the study, including the role blood pressure and cholesterol levels play in influencing your risk factors for having a heart attack. There is an abundance of research found on this famous and noteworthy heart study, but one of the most important takeaways from the Framingham Heart Study is what has been virtually ignored. This detail is rarely discussed in conventional medical circles. That is, no one in the Framingham Heart Study from 1948 thru the 2000s ever died of a heart attack with a TOTAL CHOLESTEROL LEVEL OF 150mg/dL. As soon as levels climbed toward 200mg/dL, risks increase, people had heart attacks, and people die from them.
Researchers and medical doctors still tell us that a total cholesterol of 200mg/dL is a good number. They sometimes even try to impress upon patients their ability to calculate mathematical ratios of different cholesterol particles like: C-HDL, C-LDL and others. However, the truth is heart attacks are usually caused by younger plaques, which rupture, causing a blood clot to form in the heart. These younger plaques are more or less punctured by oxidized cholesterol, which is the bad cholesterol (LDL). If we can naturally lower total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol, we can reduce your risk of heart disease, and even reverse it as has been observed in research by Dr. Dean Ornish and Dr. Esselstyn.
What seems to be missed in all the research is we don’t eat like high-order primates. Essentially we eat too much meat and dairy. When we follow a high-order primate diet and lifestyle, chronic diseases like heart disease begin to disappear.
When our program is followed, generally total cholesterol falls and close to 150mg/dL, which means LDL falls and is less oxidized (sharp) and less likely to puncture open a plaque leading to a blood clot and heart attack.
When total cholesterol falls due to proper lifestyle choices, so does the so-called BAD cholesterol (LDL). LDL cholesterol is the oxidized cholesterol. That is the cholesterol that gets hard and punctures through plaque – causing a heart attack in the majority of myocardial infarction(s).
When statins were invented, many doctors and scientist believed they could lower cholesterol levels to safe levels, preventing heart disease and heart attacks. Statins do work well at lowering cholesterol, but research does not show that they work at preventing heart attacks or reversing cardiovascular disease. Apparently drug induced lower cholesterol levels don’t really offer that much benefit to those patients who have never had a prior heart attack.
We don’t encourage patients to use statins for long periods of time due to their long-term potential negative side-effects. We encourage patients to learn our high-order primate diet, essentially eating for their DNA type, and only temporarily prescribe statins for a limited time (90-120 days generally) until their diet and lifestyle modifications naturally reduce cholesterol levels to normal, optimal, high-order primate (healthy-human) levels.
Of course, there is a lot more to it, which is why we are here to help you learn our approach and get proper lifestyle modification coaching from our high-trained staff.
Our program is based on teaching the high-order primate diet. We teach you how to eat abundantly nutrient dense healthy rich foods and how to avoid toxic foods. We simplify the topic to where it makes sense, so you become armed with the right information to make informed healthy choices.
Original Framingham Study Hypothesis
- CVD increases with age. It occurs earlier and more frequently in males.
- Persons with hypertension developed CVD at a greater rate than those who are not hyper-tensive.
- Elevated blood cholesterol level is associated with an increased risk of CVD.
- Tobacco smoking is associated with an increased occurrence of CVD.
- Habitual use of alcohol is associated with increased incidence of CVD.
- Increased physical activity is associated with a decrease in the development of CVD.
- An increase in thyroid function is associated with a decrease in the development of CVD.
- A high blood hemoglobin or hematocrit level are associated with an increased rate of the development of CVD.
- An increase in body weight predisposes to CVD.
- There is an increased rate of the development of CVD in people with diabetes mellitus.
- There is higher incidence of CVD in people with gout.
