How To Get Off Statins

Getting off a statin drug is actually quite easy and straightforward–but likely not among your doctor’s interests.

The values you can obtain on your own are superior to the values obtained with statin drugs–not nearly as good, not the same, but SUPERIOR.

These and other discussions are part of the Undoctored conversations found in my new book, Undoctored: Why Health Care Has Failed You and How You Can Become Smarter Than Your Doctor.

Available in all major bookstores and on Amazon.

The post How To Get Off Statins appeared first on Dr. William Davis.

New Kids on the Block, Change and Weekend Plans

Last week was a tough week at work because my boss left. I sulked about it because I was his favorite and vice versa. I think he’ll go on to do different things that are more suited to him, but I could live without all of the changes at work right now. There’s major change happening in every area of my life right now – most of them good. It’s just a lot to take in all at once. By the end of the week I was wiped out, and my plan was to relax at home Friday night. It didn’t happen like that though, which is great, because I had a wonderful weekend. Friday night a childhood dream came true for me. I loved New Kids on the Block from the time I was 10 years old until much later than I was willing to admit. Jordan was my favorite, and he still is! I wasn’t allowed to listen to them growing up, but I always told myself that someday I’d see them in concert. Twenty-five years later it happened. I knew they were coming to New Orleans because the venue is in my neighborhood, and my friends and I seriously considered […]

I’m Getting Married Next Week!

I know I’ve said it already, but I’m getting married next week!!!!!!! Have I ever told you how we met? I shared the short version on our wedding website, michaelandkenlie.com, but I thought I’d share it here too since this site is permanent. The end of 2015 was a time of change and growth for Michael and me individually. In early December I told God that I was tired of hearing myself whine to Him about wanting to be in a healthy relationship with a Godly man. I said to God, “You know my heart, and You gave me these desires. I’m surrendering them to you right now. This is not my biggest prayer anymore. I want to fulfill your purpose, and so be enough for me. Satisfy me.” The next day Michael walked into my church for the first time. I didn’t meet him that weekend, but over the next few months I would greet him on Sunday mornings when he walked in. In February we both joined a Bible study group, and a few weeks in I jokingly admitted that pizza had been my Valentine that year. Later during the same group he mentioned that pizza was his Valentine […]

Fat People Still Have To Eat, And Sometimes I Don’t Want Salad

Right now I’m sitting in a hipster coffee shop drinking a latte that was so pretty that I didn’t want to touch it. They serve the biggest, most ridiculous doughnuts I’ve ever seen, and I’ve been to some pretty ridiculous doughnut shops. The lattes here are too delicious to express with words, and on this day of rest, I decided to indulge in (part of) a doughnut. They’re so big that if I tried to eat it all I’d probably end up at the emergency room, or maybe I’d just feel sick. I don’t intend to find out. I spend a lot of time sharing my thoughts and ideas – on social media, here on the blog and in person with friends and family. I’m honest about my journey, struggles and victories, and it helps me keep track of where I’ve been and where I’m going. Being as open as I am also invites judgement, sometimes even from well-meaning people who just don’t have a clue. I like food…sushi, cookies, lattes, etc. Sometimes I eat that stuff, and if I’m eating something pretty I’m probably going to post it on Instagram. I’m as open about that as I would be about posting […]
