I Can’t Believe It’s Not Cholesterol

“Have you ever wondered why eggs contain so much cholesterol? It is because it takes one hell of a lot of cholesterol to make a chicken.”

Quote from Dr. Malcolm Kendrick

The same applies to you. If your mother did not have sufficient cholesterol when you were conceived, you would not be here.

Cholesterol is one of the most important substances the body produces. It is manufactured in the liver and is needed by every single cell of the body (and brain cells in particular) every single second of the day. If your cholesterol levels drop, you begin to have organ failure, elastic tissue problems and memory loss, as well as depression and, if the level drops too low, aggression, suicidal tendencies and, ultimately, death.

Ever since this cholesterol question came up, I have been investigating it psychically and have not been able to find any real answers. Margarine companies, doctors and some scientific papers all say cholesterol is bad but, when I have worked with my healing clients over this issue, I have never found a cholesterol-related problem in their bodies, even when they have a medical diagnosis of ‘high cholesterol’.

If we put something toxic into the body, the body rejects it and excretes it. Substances produced by the body’s internal chemistry are only what the body needs. In other words, the body does not poison itself. All symptoms of illness are controlled by the higher self and blood problems relate to the heart chakra (see my book Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Your Body…). However, even heart chakra problems do not raise cholesterol levels, especially since you will not find cholesterol in the blood.

At long last, I have found a doctor who talks some sense on this issue… Dr. Malcolm Kendrick, author of The Great Cholesterol Con, so this next section is a precis of what Dr. Kendrick has to say.

The Best That It Can Be…

The Best That It Can Be…
On the face of it, this is a good statement: the positive approach to our life and the way we live it. Why should it, our life, not be the best that it can be? […] We humans, mostly in the West (I regret to say our influence is spreading), have come to believe we deserve the best. We have interpreted ‘the best it can be’ into all aspects of our lives. This means we should aspire to the best house, best kitchen, the best car, furniture, clothes, television, computer, mobile phone and, of course, the best food. […]

How Much Does Best Cost?
The consequences of all of these choices are that, currently, the world is at war over mineral rights, (Darfur is only one example of genocide and destruction based on the greed of the west for a mineral used in mobile phones and other electrical equipment), men and women are used as slave labour to make our clothes, the planet is being carved up and the rivers polluted for the copper, zinc, etc…to go into our newest and best electronic ‘toys’, such as mobile phones, computers and flat-screen TVs. Billions of tons of food is thrown away each year because it is considered not to be the best it can be, whilst those that live in the countries that grow our food starve. […]

A Complete Consciousness
It is the best that we can be, as a human and, as a complete consciousness. The best that we are is not made up of, or lack of, possessions. It is about how we live our lives in relation to the rest of the universe and, in particular, with each other. […]

Think About It
[…] Think about the consequences your actions will have on others and then make the choice that feels right to you. It is your choice and you cannot blame the consequences on anyone else.

Think about it. Are you the best that you can be?

Best Wishes,
Diane
