Dr. Graveline has provided an excellent start for those looking to reverse damage from these essentially useless drugs. Sadly, any efforts to curb damage from statins, by vested interests, is not like to be taken too seriously as this will implicate them, but now that the patents are winding down and the bucks have been raked in, maybe we will see some half hearted efforts in this direction especially if the damage can be managed rather than cured....
A complementary protocol* to prevent heart disease is also contained in Dr. Levy's book: Stop America's # 1 Killer!...Heart Disease, this may also be adapted per the following to reduce statin damage.

Management Of Statin Damage

Directing our attention to those already presenting with statin associated damage of whatever kind, I recommend stopping the statin and robust CoQ10 supplementation. CoQ10 has no maximum allowable dose, so progressive dosage elevations to 1500mg daily may be reasonable for a period of time to observe for response. The addition of Acetyl-L-carnitine and selenium must be considered for persistent muscle pain and weakness. These recommendations are based upon known mechanisms of action of statin drugs and results of recent research.
A possible means to compensate for dolichol inhibition has recently been identified. Study of the effect of statins on dolichols and the process of glycosylation has revealed the possibility that glyconutrient supplementation may help restore normal operation of damaged glycolytic pathways. Studies designed to evaluate possible benefits of this are just getting under way. Once validated, glyconutrient supplementation may become an effective treatment for statin damage unresponsive to other measures. No other specific therapies are in sight at this time.

Here is a commentary on the recent (Jan, 25th, 2011) Public Participation Meeting (PPM) on Fluoride in the City of London, Ontario. The meeting started with a strong pro fluoride stance form the City engineer. His lack of knowledge on chemistry of the toxic wastes used to fluoridate water could embarrass even a high school student never mind his own profession. He blatantly violated his "duty to public welfare" as... [read more]
