Heart Disease is Epidemic – Something Has Really Gone Wrong!
No health topic is more important, more full of misinformation, and more complex than understanding the cause and effect relationship between inflammation and cardiovascular disease. This article tackles the four most common conditions associated with inflammation and “heart disease”, including all of its symptomologies: hypertension, stroke, coronary heart disease, and congestive heart failure. I believe the information herein will be life changing and life saving for all heart dis-ease problems.
Cardiovascular or heart disease is the number one killer in the United States, and yet it does not induce terror or fear as cancer does. The reason for this is because people are horrified of the acidic cancer treatments or chemotherapy, radiation and surgery and NOT the disease itself. Alas, heart health is frequently ignored in lieu of cancer concerns, with breast cancer being an excellent example of this short sightedness. Case in point: For every woman who dies of breast cancer or from the cancer treatments (70 percent or higher) 11 more will die from coronary heart disease. About 60% of heart disease deaths happen suddenly in people who had no previous symptoms and normal LDL cholesterol levels. These people simply collapse unexpectedly. The real lesson here is to be educated, as you will see. Everything that we have been taught about cardiovascular/heart disease is WRONG! That’s right EVERYTHING! If the so-called experts whom many of us have been listening to were right, than cardiovascular/heart disease would not be the #1 failure of modern-day medicine.
Adhering to a critical holistic principle of non-invasive alternative medicine or true health care, it is important that we never adopt the foolishness of a typical physician, who will obsessively focus on only the organ displaying obvious symptoms. It is wiser to treat the whole patient instead of an organ, which means correcting problems with both lifestyle and diet. As is the case for practically all other chronic dis-eases! A heart patient usually brings the dis-ease upon himself or herself with his or irresponsible acidic lifestyle behavior for a period of many years, and only he/she can get himself/herself out of this acidic mess. Acidic toxic drugs can suppress symptoms for a while, like they do, but real change comes only from real changes in what you eat, what you drink and what you think. Merely masking the symptoms with toxic acidic drugs is the health policy of fools. The time bomb for a heat attack or stroke is still ticking, even though the timer has been hidden from view with useless modern-day big Pharma drugs.
Heart issues go beyond the physical, and merely physically treating heart conditions ultimately results in the failures that we all see around us in slowly dying family, relatives and friends. Numerous surveys have shown that asking people about their quality of life and happiness accurately reflects their heart health. Thus, you must not ignore the mental, and even the spiritual components of heart conditions. A healthy heart requires a healthy mind, body, and spirit. Emotional issues are commonly forsaken, despite their obvious importance. Throughout mythology, the human heart represents something greater than merely an organ to pump blood. It contains the soul of a person, including his/her memories and emotions. We frequently refer to emotional issues in modern life with phrases ranging from a “broken-heart” to “faint-hearted”.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the physical organs are correlated with emotional states. Such ancient science can seem ludicrous to modern readers, but one quickly learns of its persistent value when studying alternative non-invasive medicine.
Heart problems are indeed closely tied to the symptoms of depression, rage, anger, nervousness, despair, insomnia, and restlessness. This has been repeatedly proven in studies of the Type A personality and in studies of grieving patients. Therefore, people should look within themselves to deal with their own feelings and emotional issues as the first stage of healing their hearts. It is absolutely vital. Periodic meditation and prayer can save lives. One last point on our feelings and emotions – over 80 percent of ALL heart attacks are caused by our thoughts. This is why I call ‘heart attacks’ ‘thought attacks’!
Signs and Symptoms
- Heart disease is caused when dietary, environmental and/or metabolic acids are retained in the blood and NOT properly eliminated through the four channels of elimination (urination, defecation, perspiration or respiration). The retention of excess acid in the blood is chelated with cholesterol, blood calcium or sodium bicarbonate solidifying the acid and forming a plaque which builds up on the insides of the arteries. This build up of solidified acid causes restrictions in blood flow leading to hypertension. When the artery is completely solidified with acid this causes a heart attack or stroke and then death. Keep in mind that atherosclerosis, coronary blockages, hypertension, heart attack and stroke are NOT the disease. The disease is an acidic lifestyle and diet that increases excess blood acidity leading to acid retention, solidification of acid and then the symptoms medical science calls Atherosclerosis disease.
- Acids build up in the blood and on the arterial wall that causes atherosclerosis can affect any artery, vein or lymphatic vessel in the body. These acidic build ups can be seen through a non-radioactive Ultra Sound examination of the major blood vessels and organs of the body.
- Acid Caused Coronary Artery Disease (ACCAD) occurs when solidified acids or plaque builds up in the coronary (heart) arteries. ACCAD is a leading cause of death in the United States. Or better said “ACID” or an acidic lifestyle and diet is the leading cause of death in the United States.
- Acid Caused Carotid Artery Disease (ACCAD) happens when solidified acids or plaque builds up in the carotid arteries (the arteries that supply blood and oxygen to your brain).
- Acid Caused Peripheral Arterial Disease (ACPAD) occurs when solidified acids or plaque builds up in the major arteries of the legs, arms, and pelvis.
- The exact cause of heart disease is NOW known. It is caused by an acidic lifestyle and diet leading to excess acid retention in the blood and then tissues leading to acid solidification or plaque that builds up on the arterial wall causing poor circulation, cold hands, cold feet, light headedness, dizziness, muddle thinking, forgetfulness, high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke and finally death.” Dietary, environmental and/or metabolic acid can also damage the inner layers of arteries. When the cover cells of the arteries are damage and the basement membrane is exposed, your body starts a healing process to prevent death by internal bleeding. This healing causes the solidification of acid or plaque to build up where the arterial wall has been damaged by acid.
- Over time, the solidified acid or plaque may crack and causes blood clots to form in the arteries. This can worsen angina (chest pain which is also caused by acid) or cause a heart attack when the artery is completely blocked with solidified dietary and/or metabolic acid.
- The above pHase contrast live blood micrograph shows a solidified sulphuric acid crystal surrounded by unhealthy red blood cells or codocytes. The sample of blood was taken from a patient whose diet is high in animal protein, including beef, pork, fish, turkey and chicken. Animal proteins produce strong acids of nitric, sulphuric, phosphoric and uric acid that acidify, pollute, destroy the blood and cause circulation problems. These four dietary acids from beef, pork, fish, turkey and chicken if not chelated or buffered with cholesterol, alkaline minerals, such as potassium, calcium or sodium bicarbonate, they will destroy the arterial wall and cause internal bleeding leading to eventual death.
- There are many acidic factors that raise your risk for atherosclerosis. Major risk factors include an increase of cholesterol levels to solidify dietary and/or metabolic acids, high blood pressure from the build up of solidified acids in the blood vessels, acids from smoking including sugar and nicotine which are solidified by alkaline buffers, diabetes which is the result of increased acids, namely all forms of sugar, overweight or obesity as the body retains fat to buffer excess retained acids, lack of physical activity to remove excess acid through the pores of the skin in the form of sweat, age, and a family history of early heart disease which is a reflection of familiar acidic lifestyle and dietary habits passed on to the children from the parents or care takers.
- Atherosclerosis usually doesn’t cause signs and symptoms until it severely narrows or totally blocks an artery. Many people don’t know they have this acidic condition until they have a medical emergency, such as a heart attack or stroke. The best prevention for preventing the solidification of dietary and/or metabolic acids in the blood and lymphatic vessels that causes atherosclerosis, heart attack, stroke and finally death is an alkaline lifestyle and diet, I call the pH Miracle “LIFE”style.
- I also recommend a yearly Ultrasound of the major arteries and veins of the body. An Ultrasound will reveal any solidification of acid or solid mass in the blood vessels, organs or glands.
- Atherosclerosis, Coronary Artery Disease, Carotid Arterial Disease, Peripheral Artery Disease and Hypertension usually doesn’t cause signs and symptoms until acid bound crystals severely narrows or totally blocks an artery. Many people don’t know they have the disease until they have a medical emergency, such as a heart attack or stroke. Other signs and symptoms depend on which arteries are narrowed or blocked by crystallized acids.
- Your doctor will diagnose heart disease based on your medical and family histories, your risk factors, and the results of a physical exam and diagnostic tests.
- Treatments for heart disease (discussed in more detail later) will include alkalizing lifestyle and dietary changes, alkalizing nutraceuticals, and chelation to remove acidic plaque on the blood and lymphatic vessels. Lifestyle changes include following a healthy alkalizing eating plan, increasing physical activity, maintaining a healthy weight, quitting smoking, and reducing acidic stress.
- Taking steps to control your acidic risk factors can help prevent or delay atherosclerosis and its related diseases. These steps include making lifestyle changes and/or taking alkalizing foods, drinks and nutrients.
- Improved alkalizing natural treatments have helped reduce deaths from atherosclerosis-related diseases. However, the number of people diagnosed with atherosclerosis remains high.
- If you’ve been diagnosed with atherosclerosis, you can control this symptomology with an alkaline lifestyle changes and/or natural remedies. See your doctor regularly, and call him or her if you develop any new acidic symptoms or your symptoms worsen.
- Atherosclerosis is stage seven acidosis. (Refer below to the Seven Stages of Acidosis)
- Coronary Artery Disease is stage three acidosis. (Refer below to the Seven Stages of Acidosis)
- Carotid Artery Disease is stage three acidosis. (Refer below to the Seven Stages of Acidosis)
- Peripheral Arterial Disease is stage three acidosis. (Refer below to the Seven Stages of Acidosis)
- Heart Disease is stage seven acidosis. (Refer below to the Seven Stages of Acidosis)
- Stroke is stage seven acidosis. (Refer below to the Seven Stages of Acidosis)
- Excessive salt in sweat, dehydration due to the build-up of acids that are not being properly eliminated through the four channels of elimination – lungs, bowels, kidneys and/or skin.
- Abdominal pain, flatulence are both caused by trapped acids that have not been properly eliminated through the bowels or urinary tract system.
- Fatigue is the first sign congestion of the elimination organs and dietary and/or metabolic acids are building up in the connective and fatty tissues.
What Causes Heart Disease According to Current Medical Savants?
Current medical science states that the cause of Atherosclerosis, Coronary Artery Disease, Carotid Artery Disease, Peripheral Arterial Disease, Hypertension, Heart Attack and Stroke are unknown.As current medical science continues to look at why atherosclerosis develops, they hope to find answers to such questions as:
Who’s Most At Risk For Heart Disease?
Major Risk Factors for Heart Disease
- High levels of dietary, environmental, respiratory and/or metabolic acids may cause blood cholesterol levels to increase as a protection to the blood, tissues and organs. This includes high LDL cholesterol and low HDL cholesterol that help to chelate acid and protect the blood, tissues and organs from acidic damage.
- High blood pressure. Blood pressure is considered high if it stays at or above 140/90 mm Hg over a period of time. High blood pressure indicates high acid retention and acid crystals that are accumulating on the walls of the blood and lymphatic vessels. This causes a narrowing of the blood and lymphatic vessels which causes the heart to work harder to pump blood through general and peripheral circulation. This causes the blood pressure to increase and the heart the beat faster.
- Smoking. This can damage and tighten blood vessels, raise cholesterol levels, and raise blood pressure. Smoking also doesn’t allow enough oxygen to reach the body’s tissues contributing it an already acidic condition.
- Insulin resistance. This condition occurs when the body can’t use its own insulin properly. Insulin is a alkaline buffer that helps to chelate and reduce blood plasma glucose which is a metabolic acid.
- Diabetes. This is an acidic symptomology in which the body’s acidic blood sugar level is high because of blood and body cell degeneration, constipation of the bowels and the body’s need for energy in the form of electrons to remove this acidic metabolic waste products.
- Overweight or obesity. Overweight is having extra acidic body weight from muscle, bone, fat, and/or water. Obesity is having a high amount of acid and the body packing on the fat to park excess dietary, environmental, respiratory and/or metabolic acids into the fatty tissues in order to protect the blood, tissues and organs that sustain life from acid damage.
- Lack of physical activity. Lack of activity can worsen other risk factors for atherosclerosis because you are NOT removing acids out of the connective and fatty tissues. Exercise opens up the pores so you can urinate your acidic waste products via the pores in the form of sweat.
- Age. As you get older, your risk for atherosclerosis increases because you ability to remove dietary and/or metabolic acid has been significantly reduced. Genetic or lifestyle factors cause acid bound plaque or mucous to build-up in your arteries as you age, and when you are on an acidic lifestyle and diet. By the time you’re middle-aged or older, enough acid bound plaque and mucous has built up to cause signs or symptoms of Atherosclerosis.
- In men, the risk increases after age 45.
- In women, the risk increases after age 55.
- Family history of early heart disease. Your risk for atherosclerosis increases if your father or a brother was diagnosed with heart disease before 55 years of age, or if your mother or a sister was diagnosed with heart disease before 65 years of age. Why? Because you are living your acidic family’s lifestyle and diet.
Although age and a family history of early heart disease are risk factors, it doesn’t mean that you will develop atherosclerosis if you have one or both and especially if you reduce these factors to zero when you understand the cause of Atherosclerosis and are living and alkaline lifestyle and diet.
Making lifestyle and dietary changes and taking alkalizing nutritionals to reduce and eliminate other risk factors can often lessen genetic influences and prevent Atherosclerosis, Coronary Artery Disease, Carotid Artery Disease, Peripheral Artery Disease and Hypertension that leads to heart attack and stroke from developing, even in older adults.
Emerging Risk Factors for Heart Disease
People with low CRP levels may get atherosclerosis at a slower rate than people with high CRP levels. My research indicates that reducing inflammation and lowering CRP levels with an alkaline lifestyle and diet also can reduce the risk of atherosclerosis.
Other Factors that Affect Heart Disease
- Sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a disorder in which your breathing stops or gets very shallow while you’re sleeping. Untreated sleep apnea can raise your chances of having high blood pressure, diabetes, and even a heart attack or stroke.
- Stress. Research shows that the most commonly reported “trigger” for a heart attack is an emotionally upsetting event—particularly one involving anger because of the increase of metabolic acids that pour into the bloodstream. This increase in acid is caused by the increase amount of energy used in a highly charged emotional upset. Remember, when energy is used in an emotional upset excess acid is created. When excess acids are created and NOT eliminated they can cause damage to the blood cells, paralyze the white blood cells, damage the lining of the blood vessels and even anesthetize the heart causing it to stop beating.
- Alcohol. Alcohol is a strong acid and poisons the blood and body cells. Heavy drinking can also damage the heart muscle and worsen other risk factors for atherosclerosis. To prevent or reverse Atherosclerosis, Coronary Artery Disease, Carotid Arterial Disease, Peripheral Artery Disease, Hypertension that lead to heart attack and stroke you must eliminate alcohol!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
- Eggs. A recent question in The New York Times Well blog created some confusion by asking how many eggs you can (or should) eat. The answer was not eggs-actly correct.
- Since one egg has the same amount of cholesterol as a Big Mac, it is unnecessary—even detrimental to your health—to consume eggs or egg products. One egg has more cholesterol than your body needs. In fact, any added dietary cholesterol is unnecessary because our bodies already produce more than the amount we require. An excess of cholesterol leads to heart disease, so it’s no surprise that a 2010 study in theCanadian Journal of Cardiology found that those who consume the most eggs have a 19 percent increased risk for cardiovascular problems.What The New York Times blog fails to explain is that eating an occasional egg might not increase health risks for people already eating a high-fat, high-cholesterol diet—just as smoking an occasional cigar might not increase health risks for people already smoking cigarettes. But if people are already eating a healthful diet without any added dietary cholesterol, eggs can contribute to many problems in addition to heart disease. Recent studies in Atherosclerosis and the International Journal of Cancershow that egg consumption can also cause diabetes and even cancer.The misperception surrounding the necessity of eggs has even spread to the courtroom. Unilever is suing Hampton Creek Foods for using the term “mayo” in relation to its egg-free Just Mayo condiment. The argument is that “mayonnaise” is defined as an egg-based product. However, removing the egg from mayonnaise also removes the cholesterol, a win-win. The lawsuit seems to be backfiring for Unilever by helping people realize that there are more healthful alternatives to Hellmann’s mayonnaise.No matter what you call it, egg-free is the better option.For more information about egg consumption and health, read and share our fact sheet:http://www.pcrm.org/pdfs/health/Nutrition-Fact-Sheets/Eggs-fact-sheet.pdf
- Aspirin Will NOT Prevent Heart Disease
- A once-daily, low-dose aspirin did not significantly reduce the risk of the composite outcome of cardiovascular death, non-fatal stroke, and non-fatal MI among Japanese patients aged 60 years or older with atherosclerotic risk factors. http://ja.ma/1tAxh3k = http://jama.jamanetwork.com/article.aspx?articleid=1936801&utm_campaign=social_111714&utm_medium=facebook&utm_source=jama_fb
- Soda or Carbonated Drinks. Vasan and his colleagues released a study that evaluated about 3,500 men and women participating in the Framingham Offspring Study. The offspring study began in 1971, following the original Framingham Heart Study launched in 1948. The offspring study included 5,124 people in all. The questions about soda and other dietary habits were asked at three different exam periods, from 1987 to 1991, 1991 to 1995, and 1995 to 1998. The average age of those who answered questions about their soft drink intake and other health habits was 53 during the three exam periods.
- At the first exam period, those who drank one or more soft drinks daily had a 48 percent increased prevalence of having metabolic syndrome compared with those who drank less than one a day, the researchers found. As the study progressed, drinking one or more sodas a day was linked with a 44 percent higher risk of participants developing metabolic syndrome, Vasan’s team found, compared with drinking less than a soda a day. The researchers looked at soda consumption and the person’s risk of developing each of the five criteria of metabolic syndrome. “Other than elevated blood pressure, the risk of developing the other four increased from about 20 percent to 30 percent with one soda a day,” Vasan says. They also found a trend toward an increased risk of developing high blood pressure with soda consumption. First, most soft drinks are full of the acid sugar and other acidic sweeteners, and that right there should be enough for you to stop drinking them. And if they are not full of the acid sugar and corn syrup, then they are full of acidic artificial sweeteners, which you should also avoid. Second, many soft drinks are caffeinated, another reason to skip them. Even those without caffeine are still bad, however, because of the acidity. Soda is saturated with protons, with a pH of about 3.0 or 10,000 times more acidic than distilled water. Sport drinks are among the worst – more acidic even than beer, as most sodas are. Gatorade Lemon/Lime for instance, has a pH of 2.95. Even soda water or seltzer with no sugar or artificial sweeteners or caffeine still contains carbonic acid, and has a pH of about 2.5 – 50,000 times more acidic than distilled water. One of the key components of cola or diet cola is phosphoric acid, which has a pH of 2.5. that’s strong enough to dissolve a nail in about four days. To carry concentrated cola syrup, truckers must use the the “Hazardous Material” designation reserved for highly corrosive materials. In your body, phosphoric acid leaches calcium from your bones, making it a major contributor to the rising increase in osteoporosis. Americans guzzle an average of 55 gallons of soft drinks each year – an increase of 131 percent since the late 1970’s. Forty-six percent of children aged six to eleven now drink soda every single day. No wonder we are so fat. We are pouring acid down our throats at quite a clip. That’s bad enough as it is, but remember that the more we drink of sodas, the less we drink of what is good for us. The National Soft Drink Association noted that Americans bought and drank four times as much soda as water. Even if that ratio were flipped, we’d still be in acidic trouble. Since it takes 20 parts of sodium bicarbonate to buffer or neutralize 1 part carbonic or phosphoric acid (which is in sodas), you’d have to drink 20 cups of alkaline water to counter just 1 cup of soda, diet or not, caffeinated or not. This new study showed drinking just one soft drink a day — whether diet or regular — may boost your risk of getting heart disease. That is because a soda habit increases the risk of developing a condition called metabolic syndrome (an over-acid condition), according to the new research, and that in turn boosts the chance of getting both heart disease and diabetes, which are both caused by an over-acidification of the blood and then tissues. “Even one soda per day increases your risk of developing metabolic syndrome by about 50 percent,” says Ramachandran Vasan, MD, professor of medicine at Boston University School of Medicine and the senior author of the study, published in the July 31 issue of the American Heart Association’s journal Circulation. To be diagnosed with metabolic syndrome, three of five criteria must be met: a large waistline, elevated blood pressure, elevated fasting blood sugar, elevated fasting triglycerides, or reduced HDL or “good” cholesterol. All of these conditions are brought on by an acidic lifestyle and diet. “This study adds to the wealth of scientific evidence that sugar-sweetened beverages increase the risk of metabolic syndrome,” says Vasan. Already, he says, the rise in sugary drink consumption has been linked to the epidemic of obesity and diabetes among children and teens and to the development of high blood pressure in adults. The spin doctors for the food and beverage industry takes issue with the finding. Roger Clemens, DrPH, a spokesperson for the Institute of Food Technologists, calls the study findings “oversimplified.” “There are many attributes associated with the development of metabolic syndrome,” Clemens says. “Some of which are part of lifestyle choices, such as eating too many calories.” Diet soda is a more appropriate choice than regular soda, he says. “It’s way too soon to say stop drinking diet soda,” says Clemens, a professor of molecular toxicology at the University of Southern California School of Pharmacy, Los Angeles, who is familiar with the new research. “Diet soda, in moderation, can be part of a healthy lifestyle.”
- Explaining the Soda-Heart Disease Link – The link between soda consumption and heart disease risk factors “might be reflecting dietary behavior,” Vasan says. “We know people who drink sodas have a greater intake of calories.” Soda drinkers, he says, are more likely to have a less healthy lifestyle pattern, such as eating fries, chips, and other high-fat foods. “They tend to smoke more and exercise less,” he says. Keep in mind that all of these habits are highly acidic and contribute to the symptoms associated with metabolic syndrome. Even after adjusting for intake of fat, fiber consumption, total calories, smoking, and physical activity, he says, there was still a link between soft drink intake and metabolic risk factors. “We cannot rule out the possibility that consumption of soda is a marker of risk — meaning it tracks with behavior that promotes the risk of metabolic syndrome — rather than a true risk factor,” Vasan says. Other possible explanations: Drinking more sweet beverages could condition you to have a greater preference for eating more sweets, Vasan says, which could increase your weight and your waist size. Or if you drink a large soft drink with a meal, you may be hungrier and eat more at the next meal. The findings don’t surprise Paul Lachance, PhD, acting director of The Nutraceuticals Institute at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, and a diet and health expert for the Institute of Food Technologists. “It’s plausible,” he says of the link between soda intake and increased risk of metabolic syndrome. But he wonders about the true root of the association. It may not be the soda intake itself leading to the increased risk, he says. “People who drink sodas may be giving up drinking healthier beverages,” he says, such as juices, milk, wine, and other beverages. What’s Next? Is there a “safe” amount of soda? “We cannot really answer that question,” Vasan says. The research shows an association between soda consumption and metabolic syndrome risk, Vasan says, but not cause-effect. More study is needed. Still, he adds, “the group without risk drank less than one soda a day.” His co-author, Ravi Dhingra, MD, a physician at the Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital, in Lebanon, N.H., and instructor of medicine at Harvard Medical School in Boston, says: “If you are drinking more than one soft drink per day, you may be increasing the metabolic risk factors for heart disease.” There is no such thing as a “safe” amount of soda. Sodas are all highly acidic and destroy the delicate pH balance of the blood and the interstitial fluids and uses up its precious alkaline reserves for buffering acids. If you want to be sick, tired and fat and increase your risk for heat disease than drink soft drinks – or should we say hard drinks, Bottom line if you drink sodas you put your self at risk for latent tissue acidosis which is the cause of ALL sickness and dis-ease, including heart disease, diabetes, obesity and cancer.
WHAT ARE THE SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF HEART DISEASE, ATHEROSCLEROSIS, CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE, CAROTID ARTERY DISEASE, PERIPHERAL ARTERY DISEASE, AND HYPERTENSION?
Angina is chest pain or discomfort that occurs when your heart muscle doesn’t get enough oxygen-rich blood. Angina may feel like pressure or a squeezing pain in your chest. You also may feel it in your shoulders, arms, neck, jaw, or back.This acid caused pain tends to get worse with activity and goes away when you rest. Emotional stress also can trigger the pain. Why? Because emotion is Energy in Motion which requires a huge amount of energy and creates a huge amount of metabolic acid.
Heart Disease and Cholesterol
Everyone in modern society has heard about cholesterol, and how bad it is. Most do not understand why it exists, and simply see it as a menace that must be eliminated as quickly as possible. This misunderstanding is exactly what the pharmaceutical complex promotes, because it allows them to perpetually treat high cholesterol with drugs like Lipitor. These drugs are prescribed for the remainder of a patient’s lifetime, and when he/she eventually dies of a “thought attack”, family and friends will believe that the disaster was inevitable from “high cholesterol”. The death will not be attributed to other health factors or to the drugs themselves, but to the “high cholesterol”; even though there are no known deaths from cholesterol in human history. It is all very convenient for the drug companies, so long as we do not examine what is up the other sleeve.
I am reminded of restless leg syndrome, whereby the dis-ease was ‘discovered’ immediately after the pharmaceutical for it was patented, as a reason to sell us this useless pharmaceutical drug. Now, restless leg syndrome has been upgraded to a new “disease”. The cause of restless leg syndrome is also the cause of heart disease – retained metabolic and/or dietary acids in the connective and fatty tissues leading to inflammation, induration, ulceration, degeneration and finally death.
“Before 1920, coronary heart disease was rare in America — so rare that when a young internist named Paul Dudley White introduced the German Electrocardiograph to his colleagues at Harvard University, they advised him to concentrate on a more profitable branch of medicine. The new machine revealed the presence of arterial blockages, thus permitting early diagnosis of coronary heart disease. But in those days, clogged arteries were a medical rarity, and White had to search for patients who could benefit from his new technology. During the next forty years, however, the incidence of coronary heart disease rose dramatically, so much so that by the mid 1950’s, heart disease was the leading cause of death among Americans.”
— Mary Enig, Ph.D.
The amount of cholesterol that you eat actually has very little relationship with the amount that you have in your blood. When you eat more cholesterol, your body produces less, and when you eat less cholesterol, your body produces more. Another way to say this is like this – when you have more metabolic or dietary acid in your blood and interstitial fluids the body produces more LDL cholesterol, and when you have less metabolic or dietary acid in your blood and interstitial fluids the body produces less cholesterol. Why? Because LDL cholesterol is a buffer or chelator of metabolic and/or dietary waste. Understand? A body usually produces between three and four times the cholesterol that one eats. The amount produced is generally related to how much is needed. Cholesterol is indeed needed and critical for optimal health. The purpose of so-called “bad cholesterol” is not to give us heart attacks, but to buffer acidic metabolic and dietary waste and to repair the damage to arteries or veins from our acidic lifestyles and diets.
Whenever a poor acidic diet and lifestyle leads to damaged arteries, a thick and sticky substance is required to patch them. That substance is known as LDL or “bad cholesterol”. When this damaging behavior is continued, multiple patches are created, leading to what we know as “clogged arteries”. The problem is not the cholesterol, which is doing its wonderful job of preventing our death from internal bleeding. The problem is the fact that the arteries or veins are damaged enough from acidic lifestyle and dietary choices to risk internal bleeding. Blocking a body’s healthy countermeasure only leads to worse problems. It is the pharmaceutical standard of symptom suppression that is like hiding the timer of a time bomb, and then expecting it not to eventually go off. Thus, that so-called “BAD” cholesterol is not “BAD” at all. In fact LDL cholesterol is saving your acidic body from internal bleeding and inevitable death. LDL cholesterol ONLY increases in the presence of excess metabolic, dietary, respiratory and/or environmental acids which increase as a result of what you eat, what you drink and what you think. High LDL cholesterol is a warning sign of your poor acidic lifestyle and dietary choices and the body is in preservation mode. It is trying to protect itself from YOU!
Cholesterol is created to save your life! The following picture is what solidified metabolic acid bound to cholesterol looks like in the extra cellular fluids or the blood.
Modern medicine spends a lot of time fighting this pitch, instead of the actual causes of arterial damage. Thus, it is not surprising that cholesterol-lowering drugs cause more heart dis-ease and more heart attacks and strokes. A massive portion of the elderly population is taking cholesterol-lowering drugs, even though research shows that the higher their cholesterol levels (especially LDL) the longer that they will live and the less risk for a heart attack or stroke. The graph below illustrates this point! Low cholesterol in the elderly is actually a sign that something is seriously wrong, and a heart attack or stroke may be imminent. Modern medicine has only recently come to accept that at least some cholesterol (LDL and HDL) is good and protective! But when you mention (LDL) cholesterol as “GOOD” you better take cover from current medical savants who will attack you with their ignorance!
Cholesterol is still suppressed with drugs, despite what science would make prudent from the long-term Framingham Study. It also has been proven that these drugs cause high suicide rates. The drugs can lead to personality changes, in a manner similar to (but not as intense as) S.S.R.I. antidepressants.
The anti-cholesterol hysteria began in the 1950’s, when researcher Ancel Keys proposed the Lipid Hypothesis. It stated that cholesterol and saturated fats lead to heart disease. His beliefs were promoted heavily by the new hydrogenated oils industry, which spent obscene amounts of money to convince every one of Keys’ indisputable findings. This successful marketing campaign was on par with similar marketing for fluoride at about the same time. Studies which had oppositional findings to Keys’ were ignored or maligned. As a result of his flawed scientific methodology (subjective cherry picking results to match what he wanted to find) saturated fats like butter and eggs were used less, in exchange for the poisonous trans-fats that are in hydrogenated oils. Heart disease rates have been rising exponentially ever-since.
The French eat more fats than any other group in the world, yet they have lower rates of heart disease. The Japanese eat more fats than Americans, yet have lower rates of heart disease. There are plenty of countries with similar patterns. The French lifestyle especially counters Keys’ hypothesis, and it also provides evidence that resveratrol (found in red or purple grapes) improves heart health. Resveratrol has been shown to reverse atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). Maybe, just maybe its being American that causes higher rates in heart attacks. 🙂 The bottom-line medical research is subjective NOT objective!
Just recently the Food and Drug Administration issued new safety warnings about a popular class of drugs used to control and lower cholesterol levels. The FDA says the drugs, known as statins, can cause several side effects, including cognitive problems such as memory lapses and confusion. But the agency is stressing that the side effects appear to be rare and not serious. I have suggested that taking any drug, like statin drugs that lowers LDL cholesterol without removing acidic lifestyle and dietary choices is a risk for heart attack, stroke and other dis-eases like diabetes. I have lowered cholesterol sucessfully in all cases of hyperchlolesterolemia without drugs by just changing the diet and lifestyle to an alkaline pH Miracle lifestyle and diet that restores the alkaline design of the body.
LDL cholesterol levels naturally drop whenever the body’s becomes less acidic and more alkaline in the interstitial fluids where acids are stored! And LDL cholesterol should never be forced lower with drugs because they WILL cause a heart attack or stroke! The pH Miracle alkaline lifestyle and diet can reduce LDL cholesterol, but it is never because of a lowered cholesterol intake.
The natural drop in cholesterol and triglycerides happens only when a person stops eating toxic acidic foods, drinking toxic acidic drinks and stops toxic acidic thoughts that produce toxic acidic waste products that destroy the arteries and veins!
Because healthy arteries and veins do not need patching. Remember that a body typically produces 3-4 times the amount of LDL cholesterol than consumed. The fats that a person eats are therefore comparatively insignificant. Cholesterol will rise whenever the body’s need for cholesterol rises and in direct relationship to the level of acidic thoughts, words and deeds. So acidic trans-fats and inflammatory acidic substances are what need to be avoided. These toxic acidic wastes are what damage the arteries and veins, and a body will be required to do a great deal of patching as a consequence. I will reference to alkalizing or chelating herbs and minerals that lower cholesterol levels naturally later, but alkalizing and chelating herbs and minerals do it by lowering the body’s need for LDL cholesterol, not by forcefully lowering it like pharmaceuticals do.
Studies on the link between cholesterol and heart health have been manipulated for decades. The first studies on eggs showed elevated cholesterol levels because they had used dehydrated eggs, and studies of coconut oil yielded similar results because they had used partially hydrogenated coconut oil to get the results that they wanted. That is why I state that ALL scientific research is subjective NOT objective!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Read about it here: http://wp.me/p5ggLY-a5
It is Simple – Cholesterol DOES NOT CAUSE Heart Disease!
Government nutrition guidelines recommend a diet high in carbohydrate regardless of the ample evidence of the health risks it promotes. Yet, heart disease and obesity rates have risen in correlation with a reduced intake of dietary fat. The Food Standards Agency states all individuals’ diets should contain “plenty of starchy foods such as rice, bread, pasta and potatoes”. In addition to this, “just a little saturated fat”. This recommendation is a recipe for heart disease and stroke because of its high level of dietary acid.
While science has moved on, nutritional advice lags behind. And in a study published in Open Heart, a group of researchers conclude that national dietary advice on fat consumption issued to millions in the 1970s to reduce the risk of heart disease which suggested that fat should form no more than 30% of daily food intake lacked any solid trial evidence and shouldn’t have been introduced.
While more circumspect, cardiologist Rahul Bahl wrote in a linked editorial:
“There is certainly a strong argument that an over-reliance in public health on saturated fat as the main dietary villain for cardiovascular disease has distracted from the risks posed by other nutrients, such as carbohydrates.”
Fat and High-Carbohydrate Foods
Fat intake decreased from 36.6% to 33.7% from 1971 to 2006, while the intake of carbohydrates rose from 44.0% to 48.7%. Yet obesity levels have escalated.
There is evidence to also show that carbohydrates can lead to feelings of increased hunger. A recent study in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that eating carbohydrate foods with a high glycemic index (bread, rice, pasta) caused effects on the brain that led to feelings of increased hunger, which could in turn lead to eating more.
Another study in 2013 found high-carb meals could leave you feeling hungrier hours later compared to a low-carb meal with more fibre, protein and fat. The team behind the research attributed this to the plummeting levels of blood sugar that regularly follows high-carb meals.
The Diet-Heart Hypothesis
At the University of Hull we’ve been also looking at the effects of saturated fats on triglyceride levels – a type of fat (lipid) found in the blood. Using coconut oil because of its high (90%) saturated fat content, we found that when coupled with exercise, it significantly reduced triglyceride levels. A recent Brazilian rat study also found that coconut oil and exercise could lower blood pressure.
So where does our unshakable idea that fat leads to heart disease come from? The diet-heart hypothesis, that low density lipoproteins (LDL) cholesterol is raised in the blood by eating saturated fat, which then leads to clogged arteries and eventual heart disease, is not a credible claim.
This theory linking saturated fat and heart disease has been around since 1955 when Ansel Keys introduced his lipid hypothesis. Despite it being the foundation of dietary recommendations, it has never been proven and we have been advised to avoid certain foods including meat, dairy products and coconuts. And these myths are so deeply embedded in our minds, that recent science advocates have seen how hard it is to challenge established thinking.
Saturated Fat and Cholesterol
When we talk about high-density lipoprotein (HDL) or LDL – often referred to as good and bad cholesterol – we aren’t actually referring to cholesterol itself. These lipoproteins actually carry cholesterol, fat and fat soluble vitamins in the bloodstream. It appears that elevated levels of cholesterol (or more accurately, cholesterol which is transported around the blood by lipioproteins) is correlated with an increase in the risk of heart disease.
However, correlation does not mean causation. Very low cholesterol is linked with an increased risk of death (though not from heart disease). And in the very old, research suggests cholesterol can be protective. So it’s fair to say the relationship between cardiovascular disease and total cholesterol is complex.
Type of cholesterol is important. The “good” (HDL) cholesterol is strongly linked with a reduced risk of heart disease. However, LDL, the “bad” cholesterol, is associated with an increased risk of heart disease. But it turns out that there are in fact subtypes of LDL which make this black and white picture more complicated. The actual size of the LDL particle is significant. Individuals are at a heightened risk of heart disease if they have most small, dense LDL particles, that may more easily lodge in the arteries, as opposed to those who have large LDL particles.
Your blood lipid profile is frequently used as a medical screening tool for abnormalities in lipids (including triglycerides and cholesterol). These blood lipid profile tests can identify approximate risks for cardiovascular disease and specific genetic diseases. Studies have also shown that saturated fats do not harm your blood lipid profile – and can actually improve it. Saturated fats could lower the risk of heart disease by shifting LDL cholesterol from dense small LDL to large LDL.
Numerous short-term feeding trials have shown that an increase in saturated fat consumption leads to a rise in overall LDL. Nevertheless, the result is inconsistent and weak. The methods used in a number of these research studies have been criticised – and plenty of studies support the contrary, that no association exists between total LDL and saturated fat consumption.
Cause and Correlation
If it was true that saturated fat did cause heart disease, then it follows that people who consume more would be at higher risk. But observational studies – again only illustrative of correlation not cause – haven’t shown this. One study looked at a population of 347,747 subjects from a total of 21 studies and concluded that there was “no significant evidence for concluding that dietary saturated fat is associated with an increased risk of coronary heart or cardiovascular disease”. This has also been the conclusion of other reviews.
So What About Randomized Controlled Trials?
One such study divided 12,866 male subjects at a high risk of heart disease into a low-fat or Western diet group. After six years, no difference was found between them. The Women’s Health Imitative, the biggest randomised controlled trial in diet history, comprised of 48,835 postmenopausal women who were also divided into two similar groups and came up with similar findings.
The Cold-Pressed Organic Coconut Oil Connection
If you don’t care for the science, then take an everyday example. Look at the large populations of the Masai in Africa who consume large amounts of saturated fat but have low levels of coronary heart disease. Or the Tokelauans of New Zealand who consume a massive amount of saturated fat through coconuts: more than 60% of their daily calories come from coconuts. These populations have no history of heart disease. And the health benefits of coconut oil are now becoming known more widely.
We are learning so much more about fats and that there is no evidence that saturated fat causes heart disease. Leading nutrition experts have been calling for an amendment to dietary recommendations for more than ten years. But despite these calls and the high-quality evidence assembled throughout the past decade, doctors, governments – and by extension the public – still take extraordinarily little notice. But a decade of research to the contrary would suggest it’s time we moved away from entrenched thinking, towards a more enlightened attitude to saturated fat.
Why Allopathic Medicine Will Never Find the Cure for Heart Disease or Stroke!
Allopathic medicine will NOT find the cure to any heart-related dis-ease because the doctors are not really looking at the cause. They are looking for new ways to manage diseases perpetually, and to keep their patients sick enough to require useless toxic acidic drugs. Thus, Big Pharma is developing new drugs to help reduce LDL cholesterol, eliminate renin (a clotting agent), thin the blood, and other forms of symptom management.
The utter insanity of this is shown by the fact that LDL cholesterol is designed to buffer acidic waste and prevent internal bleeding. So while doctors are giving anti-cholesterol drugs, which make internal bleeding much more likely, they are also simultaneously giving blood thinners to ensure that the bleeds are real gushers, and that the body will need even more LDL cholesterol to save itself. They spend NO TIME considering why the body creates cholesterol in the first place and the role of renin, and what causes thick, hyper-coagulated blood. The system is designed to ensure that heart disease is NEVER curable.
A drug dealer will not help you to quit an addiction, unless he can give you another drug that is more expensive, and preferably more addictive. The medical establishment likewise relies on your sickness for its profit. The current medical establishment is in the sickness business NOT the health and wellness business. They do not want you to die, because that is the end of their profit stream, but they do not want you to be independent either. When most people die, they have already fed most of their money into the corrupt medical system which is the leading cause of bankruptcy in the United States.
Hypertension or Better Said HyperAcidity
Hypertension or better said hyperacidity is not good, but hypertension drugs are even worse. Blood pressure medications can cause heart failure with prolonged use. They all seem to have a pattern of negative effects, which include heart and muscle damage, irregular or fast heart beat, restlessness, and light-headedness. Weaning off these toxic acidic drugs should be done slowly and cautiously, with frequent monitoring for dangerous spikes in blood pressure. Bear in mind that whenever weaning off of such toxic acidic drugs, one should expect sudden and temporary rises in blood pressure. This is temporary, and the instabilities should diminish in time. Dangerously excessive pressure will require emergency intervention at a hospital, so it is wise to decrease legend drug dosages gradually to avoid dangerous spikes in pressure.
People diagnosed with hypertension are often asked to undergo stress tests at routine intervals. There is actually very little science behind these. People have good days and bad days, and it has been repeatedly proven that the results of stress tests vary from one day to the next. Yet, when people do poorly on these tests, more expensive tests are always recommended, along with even more drugs. In addition to being useless, the stress tests themselves are prone to causing heart attacks. Sure, there are doctors on staff, but even minor heart attacks cause permanent damage to the heart, and some are deadly despite attempts at resuscitation. The heart attacks stimulated by the stress tests sometimes occur later, when the patient has returned to his or her home.
There is a much more effective ways of determining if you are at risk for heart attacks, using a technique known as the ankle-brachial index test.
The Ankle-Brachial Test
A person begins this test by getting his blood pressure taken normally, and recording the result. Next, he lies on his back, and has his blood pressure taken at his ankle, just above the bone that juts out. This result should be recorded too. The index calculation is based upon the leg’s systolic pressure divided by the arm’s. Take for example, if the patient’s first blood pressure measurement were 120 over 70, which is normally written as 120/70, and his blood pressure at his ankle were 110/68. We only need the first of these numbers in each set, the systolic measurements of 120 (arm) and 110 (ankle). For instance, 110/120 = 0.916. A healthy index is 1.0 or greater.
The logic behind this test is sound. The arteries of the legs must exert more to assist with heart contractions than the arteries of the arms, so more pressure ought to be detected in the legs. Clotting disorders and signs of atherosclerosis show up in the legs before anywhere else. These factors make this test a superior method of early detection. The sooner that a person uses non-invasive tests for the risk of heart disease, the easier it is to reverse the acidic damage caused by acidic lifestyle and dietary choices.
I personally recommend the 3-D Bio-electro scan (developed for NASA by Russian scientists to check all functions of the human body on returning astronauts from space) to determine the health of the heart, central and peripheral circulation, interstitial metabolic alkalosis or acidosis, interstitial LDL cholesterol, blood vessel stiffness or solidification, interstitial sodium and potassium levels and all other functions of the human body.
You can learn more about the 3-D Bio-Electro scans by going to: http://www.universalmedicalimaging.com
There are plenty of medical industry tests surrounding hypertension, arterial plaque, and coronary heart disease, but there is very little purpose to them, other than to increase profits. For instance, a $3,000 test may tell a patient how severely clogged his arteries are, but modern medicine can do nothing to reverse it. Or you can look into non-invasive full-body ultrasound technology to scan the arteries for sclerosis or plaque, such as in the carotid artery or the femur arteries. When plaque is found it can be measured and the pH Miracle lifestyle and diet can be implemented as an effective way to reduce this sclerotic plaque build-up. To learn more about full-body ultrasound testing go to: http://www.universalmedicalimaging.com
The following methods can eliminate the acids that cause the build-up of sclerotic plaque and the symptom of hypertension. Many of these are explained in more detail later or in my pH Miracle books.
Natural Hypertension Remedies for its Self-Cure
- Weight loss must be done properly or the result will be further impaired health. For example, smaller and healthier alkaline meals should be consumed more often. Do not skip meals or use toxic diet products. Virtually all diet products are toxic and inflammatory. They exaggerate health issues (including heart disease) in the long-term. I would suggest reading the pH Miracle for weight loss as the best approach for losing acidic weight.
- Replace all table salt with unprocessed sea salt, and avoid processed sodium sources, including monosodium glutamate.
- Follow the pH Miracle lifestyle and diet which is a non-acidic, high potassium alkaline diet to prevent acidic inflammation and arterial damage.
- Do deep breathing exercises. Various martial art breathing techniques have had good success because of their emphasis on deep breathing exercises.
- American ginseng (panax quinquefolius) is sometimes used as a very mild stimulant, but it is weaker than the Korean varieties for this purpose. The American variant is most suited for heart patients, because it has been shown to improve heart health, reduce cholesterol levels (inflammation), and to normalize blood pressure.
- L-taurine with N-acetyl-cysteine are both known for regulating the blood pressure, and bringing balance to the sodium and potassium levels of the blood. They also helps to regulate the pulse. They indirectly aid the heart by improving kidney function. Additionally, they can both stop “heart” or “thought” attacks.
- L-arginine with L-citriline and L-ornathine are used by the body in the production of nitric oxide, which makes blood vessels relax, increases blood flow, and improves blood vessel function. Do not take L-arginine following a heart attack. While L-arginine. L-citriline and L-ornathine are good for prevention, they have been shown to have damaging effects if used immediately following a cardiac arrest.
- CoQ10 can be used to help people wean off of hypertension (blood pressure) medications faster and more safely, and it is an overall heart tonic. It is especially useful for older people.
- Cayenne has the unique ability to regulate blood pressure as needed, either increasing or decreasing it, as is prudent. It is also useful for stopping a heart attack.
- Vitamin E thins the blood, and has been shown in studies to normalize blood pressure. Women should avoid blood thinners like vitamin E while menstruating, because it will cause heavier bleeding.
- Hawthorn is one of the best supplements for heart health, and it helps with blood pressure too.
- Magnesium chloride to reduce the metabolic and dietary acids that cause inflammation.
- Sodium and potassium bicarbonate to reduce the metabolic and dietary acids that cause inflammation, weaken the heart and destroy the endothelial cells that line the blood vessels.
- Resveratrol and pycnogenol are powerful antioxidants or anti-acids for reducing toxic metabolic, dietary, environmental and respiratory acids in the prevention and treatment of heart disease.
- Glutathione is another powerful anti-acid which is found in every tissue, organ and gland for protection against metabolic and dietary acids.
Blood pressure instability or imbalance can be an indication of kidney damage. Additional symptoms of kidney impairment are fatigue, vision problems, muscle cramping, bleeding gums, swollen legs, excessive urination, and excessive thirst. Kidney stress can also result in imbalanced electrolyte salts, especially potassium, which will cause fluid retention or loss throughout the body. Kidney stress is commonly caused by excessive supplementation, a toxic diet, or pharmaceuticals. Doctors never blame the pharmaceuticals, because doing so would mean taking responsibility for damaging the patient’s health. Kidney stress may also be caused by liver inflammation, which is due to metabolic and dietary acids, heavy metal toxicity, excessive alcohol usage, or pharmaceutical toxicity. The over-all efficiency of the kidneys is also greatly affected by a person’s emotional health, which ultimately affects the heart too. Therefore, the process of healing the kidneys could be very slow if the person has unresolved feelings that lead to acidic emotional expressions.
The following list of alkalizing supplements strengthens the kidneys. These dosages should not be exceeded, or else the supplements will ironically stress the kidneys further. When dealing with kidney stress, these should be the only alkalizing supplements taken, and no pharmaceuticals should be used, if at all possible. During a period of kidney repair, it is important that a pristine alkaline pH Miracle lifestyle and diet be maintained, with preference being given to organic green fruit and vegetables. As mentioned elsewhere in this article, special care should be exercised when weaning off blood pressure medications, because the discontinuation process may cause dangerous spikes in blood pressure. Discontinuing blood pressure medications should always be done gradually and with constant monitoring for dangerous spikes. Pressure spikes should be handled in a common sense manner, which may include increasing the dosage slightly, or visiting emergency medical personnel in the extreme cases. Make sure you consult with your medical doctor before coming off any legend drug.
Kidney Support Supplements
- Dandelion (500 mg. for every 50k or 100 lbs. of body weight)
- Licorice root (500 mg. for every 50k or 100 lbs. of body weight)
- L-Taurine (170 mg. per 25k or 50 lbs. of body weight)
- N-acetyl-cysteine (170mg. per 25K or 50 lbs. of body weight)
- Vitamin E (133 I.U. per 50k 100 lbs. of body weight)
- L-arginine with L-citriline and L-ornathine (10 grams per serving in a glass of alkaline water at least 2 times a day based upon 70k or 154 lbs. Take on an empty stomach first in the morning and last thing you do at night before going to bed)
- Magnesium chloride (2 grams per serving at least 3 times a day based upon 70k or 154 lbs.)
- L-glutathione (500 mg 3 times a day based upon a body weight of 70K or 154 lbs.)
- Potassium bicarbonate (100 mg. for every 50k or 100 lbs of weight)
Congestive Heart Failure
Congestive heart failure is when the heart is too weak and damaged from metabolic and dietary acids to properly oxygenate the blood, adequately circulate it, and clear the lungs. Blood cannot be circulated properly, and builds up in the heart, forcing it to beat faster. Fatigue and mental confusion are common, because not enough blood and oxygen reach the brain. As a result of this poor efficiency, fluids can then accumulate in the lungs, leaving the victim susceptible to acid build-up in the lung tissues causing tissue breakdown and the symptom called pneumonia; which is one of the leading causes of death in the elderly population amongst those who have heart failure. Allopathic medicine claims that this condition has no known cause, because it ignores the findings of alternative medicine and lacks the understanding of connective and fatty tissue acidosis. Congestive heart failure is always caused by acid build-up over an extended period of time which I refer to as latent tissue acidosis. This build up of metabolic acid is virtually always due to long-term pharmaceutical usage and toxic acidic processed foods, drinks and thinking which destroys and breaks down every body tissue, organ and gland in the body and its ability to maintain its alkaline design. It can take many months, and a religious adherence to the pH Miracle alkaline lifestyle and diet but the negative affects of congestive heart failure can be reversed.
The B vitamins are crucial for reversing this acidic condition. Vitamins B-1 (thiamine), B-3 (niacin), and B-6 (pyridoxine) are extremely beneficial. The essential vitamin B-4 is a name given to a specific group of amino acids found in some foods. It is strongly recommended that anyone with congestive heart failure does some thorough research for a B-complex supplement. When researching supplements, please be mindful that some companies are selling B vitamins that are made from liver, soy, and genetically engineered yeasts, which I strongly recommend avoiding.
The B vitamins are the main nutrient deficiency in the case of those with congestive heart failure. Proper supplementation can produce a massive improvement in health and well-being. In addition to taking a B-complex supplement, heart patients should get plenty of green fruit and vegetables. Patients should also drink cayenne tea or take a cayenne supplement (on a full stomach) daily. Cayenne’s benefits are astounding to both heart health and blood pressure regulation.
Jiaogulan, otherwise known as “China’s immortality herb” has been shown to increase the output of the heart without increasing the pulse or adversely effecting blood pressure. It can actually make the heart stronger. It may be used in conjunction with everything already stated.
See the Reversing Heart Disease section for more information about CoQ10, because it has also been shown to be beneficial. Cases of congestive heart failure have been directly linked with a CoQ10 deficiency.
One of the hidden causes of congestive heart failure is an excess of elemental iron. It is accumulative in the body, particularly with men, and an excess of iron causes an untold number of health challenges. Patients can obtain a simple test to determine what their iron levels are (anything above 150 is considered dangerously high), or they can just begin treating it. Grown men practically always have excessive levels of elemental iron inside their blood. Linus Pauling discovered that vitamin C and Resveratrol help to remove excess iron.
Resveratrol is present in red grapes, dark grape juice, and red wines. Its highest concentration is observed inside muscadine grapes. This is probably because these grapes have thicker skins, which is where resveratrol concentrates.
Vegetarian and vegan heart patients may actually harm their health further by removing iron, because they are likely to be deficient in iron, if they are NOT ingesting liberal amounts of green fruit, green vegetable high in chlorophyll and/or liquid chlorophyll from alfalfa or moringa. Iron is critical for the creation of oxygen-carrying hemoglobin contained inside the red blood cells. Iron is necessary to oxygenate a body properly. The stress placed upon the lungs from cellular oxygen starvation stems from a lack of red blood cells, which always equals an equivalent stress upon the cardiovascular system. The best source for increasing hemoglobin in the red blood cells for carrying oxygen with its center atom of iron is to eat and drink greens or high-chlorophyll foods such as spinach, kale, avocado, parsley, collard greens, etc. You can also find glycerin-free pure concentrated chlorophyll at your local natural food store.
Chlorophyll has been the answer to reversing low iron or low hemoglobin without acidifying the blood and tissues.
Sudden Cardiac Death (SCD)
The CDC reports that Sudden Cardiac Death (SCD), the nation’s #1 killer, prematurely ends the lives of approximately 600,000 Americans per year. That’s approximately 1,643 people per day.
- When the heart stops abruptly without warning, the diagnosis is SCD. It kills its victims within minutes.
- It is estimated that 95 percent of victims die before reaching the hospital.
- Often SCD happens to outwardly healthy people with no known heart problems such as high school, college and professional athletes and thousands of children.
- 7,000-10,000 American children and youths die annually from SCD.
- Sudden Cardiac Death is not a “heart attack” or myocardial infarction caused by clogged arteries.
- SCD is an electrical problem in which the cardiac conduction system that generates the impulses regulating the heart suddenly puts out rapid or chaotic electrical impulses, or both. The heart ceases its rhythmic contractions, the brain is starved of oxygen and the victim loses consciousness in second
Strokes are reported for 750,000 American people each year. A stroke occurs when the blood supply (oxygen) to the brain is impeded for an extended period. It is believed that hypercoagulability (excessive clotting) of blood causes 85% of strokes. This section will concentrate upon the minority 15% for which the cause is not hypercoagulability. The hypercoagulability group is discussed later in this report.
People who snore and have sleep apnea are at a much greater risk of having strokes. Sleep apnea can usually be detected by nearby people, who may notice that the person stops breathing for several seconds while sleeping. One remedy is a snore guard that can be obtained from a dentist, or a person may get one custom fitted from a variety of E-bay sellers. It is a device that is designed to maintain an unobstructed airway, which eliminates the primary danger of sleep apnea. These devices are obviously not a cure, but they will work to prevent any immediate risk that is posed by this condition. It is worth noting that those getting proper alkaline nutrition and exercise will rarely have sleep apnea.
Stroke patients unsurprisingly have a higher than normal level of a clotting protein called fibrin in their blood. Fibrin is the blood-clotting factor. It is wise to supplement with vitamin E (400 – 800 IU) because it inhibits thrombin, the enzyme that converts fibrinogen to fibrin. This category of patients also has an increased level of infections or what I call outfections in their blood, which will be discussed later as a cause of many additional heart problems.
The use of hyperbaric oxygen (pressurized oxygen chambers) has had tremendous success in helping those who have had strokes. It is now believed that parts of the brain may not simply die during a stroke, but that they may merely become dormant. All of the B vitamins should be provided to a stroke victim, because they are essential for good brain health and repairing the central nervous system. The oxygenating effects of the pH Miracle lifestyle and diet, L-taurine, glutathione, chlorophyll, sodium and potassium bicarbonate, magnesium chloride and NAC (N-acetyl-cysteine) are also very useful for stroke recovery.
The use of the acid aspirin increases the risk of aneurysms and internal bleeding, so it is not a wise preventative for strokes. Contrary to popular belief, it does not decrease the chances of having heart attacks or strokes. The studies which showed a reduced heart attack risk used Bufferin, an aspirin product that is buffered with magnesium. Magnesium chloride can safely prevent some heart attacks, but aspirin without magnesium cannot. Heart disease patients do not suffer from aspirin deficiencies. They suffer from oxidative stress and depletion of antioxidants for buffering metabolic and dietary acids.
STROKE: Remember all six Letters…… S.T.R.O.K.E.
During a BBQ, a woman stumbled and took a little fall – she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) ….she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes.
They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Jane went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening.
Jane’s husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital – (at 6:00pm and Jane passed away). She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Jane would be with us today. There are some who do not die. But, they end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead.
Neurologist’s have suggested that if you can get a stroke victim to the hospital within 3 hours they can totally reverse the effects of a stroke. The key is getting a stroke victim recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours.
RECOGNIZING A STROKE
Here are 6 steps to remember called, S.T.R.O.K.E. !
Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.
You can recognize a stroke by asking SIX simple questions to the person who may have had a stroke:
S *Ask the individual to SMILE.
T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently), (i.e. Suzie sells seashells by the seashore or Rubber Baby Buggie Bumpers.)
R *Ask the person to RAISE BOTH ARMS high above their head.
O *Ask the person to stick OUT THEIR TONGUE.
K *Ask the person to KICK something.
E * Ask the person if they want to EAT something.
If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.
New Signs of a Stroke ——– Stick OUT Your Tongue – Kick something – Do you want to Eat something.
NOTE: Another ‘sign’ of a stroke is this: Ask the person to ‘stick’ OUT his or her tongue. If the tongue is ‘crooked’, or if it goes to one side or the other than that is also an indication of a stroke.
Ultrasound Is The Best Detector and Protector from a Stroke
An ultrasound of the carotid arteries allows the doctor to visualize the amount of plaque lining on the artery wall.
Carotid ultrasound is a painless and harmless test without radiation that uses high-frequency sound waves to create pictures of the insides of your carotid arteries.
There are two common carotid arteries, one on each side of the neck. They each divide into internal and external carotid arteries.
The internal carotid arteries supply oxygen-rich blood to the brain. The external carotid arteries supply oxygen-rich blood to the face, scalp, and neck.
Carotid ultrasound shows whether a plaque has built up in the carotid arteries. The buildup of plaque in the carotid arteries is called Carotid Artery disease.
Over time, acid boud fat called plaque can harden or rupture. Hardened plaque narrows the carotid arteries and reduces the flow of oxygen-rich blood to the brain.
If the acid bound fat called plaque ruptures, a blood clot can form on its surface. A clot can mostly or completely block blood flow through a carotid artery, which can cause a stroke.
A piece of acid plaque or a blood clot also can break away from the wall of the carotid artery. The plaque or clot can travel through the bloodstream and get stuck in one of the brain’s smaller arteries. This can block blood flow in the artery and cause a stroke.
A standard carotid ultrasound shows the structure of the carotid arteries. Carotid ultrasound test might include a Doppler ultrasound. Doppler ultrasound is a special test that shows the movement of blood through the blood vessels.
The ultrasound of the carotid arteries is the ideal test in the attempt to prevent ischemic stroke.
A Self-Care to a Self-Cure for Heart Disease
While heart disease is a term used to describe all forms of circulatory problems, the most common circulatory ailment is coronary heart disease. It is a narrowing of the small blood vessels that supply blood and oxygen to the heart. Coronary heart disease is also referred to as coronary artery disease.
“The main cause of cardiovascular disease is the instability and dysfunction of the blood vessel wall caused by chronic vitamin deficiency. This leads to millions of small lesions and cracks in the artery wall, particularly in the coronary arteries. The coronary arteries are mechanically the most stressed arteries because they are squeezed flat from the pumping action of the heart more than 100,000 times per day, similar to a garden hose which is stepped upon.”
— Dr. Matthias Rath, Why Animals Don’t Get Heart Disease, But People Do.
Dr. Matthias Rath worked closely with the late Dr. Linus Pauling. They discovered that cardiovascular disease is a slower, less-severe form of scurvy. In scurvy, cracks in the vessel walls are deeper, leading to massive internal bleeding. Dr. Linus Pauling labeled arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) as a pre-scurvy condition.
It was discovered that the arteries actually pump blood too, which is common knowledge in medical circles. This phenomenon is what makes it possible to test ones pulse with a finger pressure test. The pumping action of the arteries is stimulated by the heart. When the heart beats, arteries expand to create a negative, vacuum-like pressure to pull blood. When the heart relaxes, the arteries contract, exerting a force that is strong enough to aid in pushing the blood along. Neither alternative medicine nor orthodox medicine understands much about how this works. The big difference is that we admit that we do not fully understand, whereas typical doctors use medical buzz-words to disguise their ignorance.
Cracks in the arterial walls are repaired by the body using a sticky protein known as APO(a) and a lipoprotein called LP(a). Then LDL, the so-called “bad” cholesterol comes along to help them from the finished repair patch. Due to deficiencies of the anti-oxidant sodium and potassium bicarbonate, these fats may oxidize, leading to a hardening of the arteries. Oxidation or fermentation, which is unchecked by alkalizing mineral salts, leads to the calcification or solidification of the cells. “Plaque deposits” is the phrase given to the chelation of dietary and/or metabolic acids with fats lining the arterial walls, which is the end result of acid-induced oxidative damage.
The coronary arteries are the most stressed; and hence, they need the most repair. Plaque forms as the inner walls of the arteries oxidized or fermented from dietary and/or metabolic acids. When the interior of arteries become narrow, due to plaque formation, dislodged pieces of plaque can lead to blockages.
Blockages may also be caused by traveling blood clots, whenever they become wedged inside thick plaque deposits. These blockages are commonly called myocardial infarctions by medical professionals, and heart attacks by the rest of us.
Within five years of diagnosis of coronary heart disease, 50% of American patients die from it or the long-term effects of medical treatments. Diuretics, for example, are the most common medications given for the worst heart problems, but they flush out the B vitamins and alkaline minerals that a patient’s heart desperately needs, along with flushing sodium and potassium bicarbonate (a deficiency of which may lead to sudden heart failure). To highlight just how moronic this approach is: diuretics stress the kidneys (and the rest of the body) by chemically forcing a body to purge itself of fluids. In other words, the most popular treatment for severe heart problems is forced chemical dehydration, and attacking the kidneys, which have a direct effect upon heart health.
What Causes Heart Disease According to the Research of Dr. Robert O. Young?
All disease or dis-ease, including Heart Disease and its many symptoms like Atherosclerosis is caused by individual lifestyle and dietary choice or for children how parents are feeding and caring for their children. I have suggested that you do not get sick you have to do sick by making acidic lifestyle and dietary choices. When you choose or parents choose for their children to eat acidic foods or drink, such as animal flesh, eggs, dairy products, like cheese, yogurt and ice cream, sugar, chocolate, alcohol, coffee and tea, just to name a few, you set yourself up for excess tissue acidosis and a serious health challenge, such as breast cancer for a woman, prostate cancer for a man, cystic fibrosis of the lungs for a child or young adult or Atherosclerosis, and Coronary Artery Disease the leading causes of death in the United States.
Over 30 years ago I postulated a theory that ALL sickness and disease is the result of an inverted way of living, eating and thinking. And, that genetic defects are caused by acidic dietary and lifestyle choices that cause the genetics to express themselves in abnormal ways. In the case of atherosclerosis and the production of mucous and/or artheosclerotic plaque, the alkaphile glands (stomach and pancreas) are secreting sodium bicarbonate into the blood, tissues or organs to maintain the alkaline design of the body fluids and protect the body cells, even the epithelium cells that protect the walls of the arteries and veins from breaking down. The result is when sodium bicarbonate binds to dietary and/or metabolic acid it creates sticky mucous and/or solidified acid crystals like the one in the micrograph above. The mucous and/or the solidification of the liquid poisonous acid from diet and/or metabolism are neutralized and therefore cannot damage or destroy the artery or vein. Even though current medical science perceives cholesterol, sticky mucous and solidified crystal masses as disease causing or disease they are NOT! This is the human body’s innate intelligence trying to restore the body fluids back to their delicate alkaline state of 7.365.

High Cholesterol Prevents Atherosclerosis and Coronary Artery Disease!
So What Is The Leading Cause of Death In The World?
The Self-Cure for Heart Disease is Simple!
Heart Disease and Acidic Chlorinated Water
Our modern acidic lifestyle has paved the way for the epidemic of heart disease. Most municipal water is contaminated with pharmaceutical drugs, fluoride, BPA, and chlorine. Chlorine-tainted water changes the preferred HDL cholesterol into LDL cholesterol, creates latent tissue acidosis inside the body that requires more anti-oxidant minerals to neutralize or buffer acids, and it destroys long-chain fats that are needed by the heart. According to the book, Coronaries Cholesterol Chlorine by Dr. Joseph M. Price, chlorination was first suspected of causing heart disease during the Korean War, because the men who had canteens with the highest amounts of chlorine also had the greatest damage to their arteries. Physically fit soldiers in their twenties had arteries reminiscent of their seventy-year-old grandfathers.
“Chlorine is the greatest crippler and killer of modern times. While it prevented epidemics of one disease, it was creating another. Two decades ago, after the start of chlorinating our drinking water in 1904, the present epidemic of heart trouble, cancer and senility began.”
— Dr. Joseph M. Price
A massive amount of chlorine is inhaled and absorbed during a typical shower, and thus an alkalizing shower filter is strongly recommended. I recommend drinking alkaline spring water at a pH of 9.5 to 10, or getting a WaterMark filtration and ionizer with the optional fluoride-removing add-ons. Be aware of filters which only remove the taste of chlorine, and instead get one that removes all impurities and increases hydroxyl ions in the water with a pH of at least 9.5 and a redox potential of -250mV.
It is popular in Japan today to drink alkaline water immediately after waking up every morning. Furthermore, scientific tests have shown its value. I have published below a description of use of alkaline functionally structured water at a pH of 9.5. and an ORP rating of at least -150mV. Drinking alkaline functionally structured water has been found successful by the Japanese medical society as a 100% way of reversing the following dis-eases:
Headache, body inflammation, heart dis-ease, arthritis, rapid heart beat, epilepsy, overweight, bronchitis, asthma, TB, meningitis, kidney and urine dis-eases, vomiting, gastritis, diarrhea, piles, diabetes, constipation, all eye dis-eases, many cancerous conditions and menstrual disorders, ear nose and throat dis-eases

Heart Disease and Cooking Oils
Most cooking oils are already oxidized (rancid) before they are even bottled, because of the processing. Even otherwise healthy oils become slightly toxic and carcinogenic when they are rancid. It is vital to get cold-pressed oils for this reason. Chemical deodorizers are sometimes added to hide the unpleasant scent of rancidity.
Rancid (oxidized) fats are chemically unstable and provide damaging free radicals. Trans-fats cause inflammation that may induce arterial patching. Beware of both trans-fats and healthy oils that have been made rancid. Use cold-pressed, extra-virgin olive oil or avocado oil for most cooking. Cold-pressed, extra-virgin coconut oil is easily the healthiest oil of all for cold recipes, but it breaks down rapidly in heat to become rancid. Pristine coconut oil is an extremely healthy dietary supplement that will help to protect the arteries, like other healthy saturated fats will. Trans-fats are industrially produced artificial foods. They commonly contain aluminum, lead, and cobalt residues, as a result of their manufacturing processes.
The same biotechnology industry that brought us trans-fats has more recently created genetically engineered soy and canola. Both soy and canola oils are used as pesticides. Soy causes drastic endocrine gland imbalances, which has resulted in the epidemics of hypothyroidism and endometriosis. Fermented soy is toxic, even in its organic state and should never be ingested. As a general rule, soy should be considered unsafe for human consumption unless we are talking about organic non-GMO soy sprouts which are alkalizing and contain saponins, genistein and other isoflavones which are protective to the heart.
The canola plant has no organic variety, because the first canola plant was born in a test tube in the 1970’s. The nuclear industry assisted in genetically engineering it. Canola is the Frankenstein spawn of the deadly rapeseed plant. Rapeseed oil was banned in foods for causing heart tumors. Rapeseed’s bastard child, canola, is being deceptively marketed as being free of trans fats. The lie is based upon the fact that they only use the test results from before the oil is heated, and flagrantly ignore the test results of heated canola oil. Then, they market canola as the healthiest cooking oil, using cherry-picked test results from only uncooked oil. The biotechnology companies forget to mention that canola oil becomes a trans fat as soon as it is heated. However, they never forget to place the FDA-approved “heart healthy” label on every bottle of canola oil.
Canola oil is also marketed as being high in omega-3, but all of the omega-3 becomes rancid and carcinogenic as soon as it is heated. Studies have shown that canola oil can produce heart lesions, particularly when accompanied by a diet that is low in protective saturated fats. It also produces high levels of benzene and formaldehyde when it is heated. The biotech industry brought us trans fats to ironically save us from heart disease, and it is now bringing us genetically engineered canola and soy, whilst promoting the very same con-job.
Heart Disease and Heavy Metals
Heavy metals inside the body accumulate, leading to immune system suppression and inflammation in increasing amounts with age. Heavy metal toxicity leads to obesity, which in-turn leads to even more inflammation and heart stress. Thus, metal extraction through oral and rectal chelation therapy (hydro-colon therapy) is immensely beneficial for reversing heart disease. All heavy metal cleansing should first begin with a liver cleanse. The liver will also need to be at maximum efficiency for additional cleansing to be effective.
Allopathic medicine is beginning to believe that renin (the clotting agent in the blood) is the main cause of heart disease. It is trivial to pharmaceutically-lower renin levels, just as drugs may reduce cholesterol levels. Both are typically expected to be life-long treatments, but neither is advisable. The presence of either renin or cholesterol in elevated amounts is a warning that the real problem elsewhere should be dealt with properly. The real problem is a four letter word, ACID, from diet and lifestyle. The standard procedures of merely suppressing the symptoms has led to the huge mortality rate, because patient bodies have been prevented from defending themselves against an onslaught of dietary and environmental acid.
Heart Disease and Birth Control Pills
Symptom suppression as heart medicine is a dangerous strategy, but it is nonetheless typical. For instance, cardiac arrhythmia is often caused by severely increased acidic hormones, and it is frequently the result of birth control drug usage. Treating the arrhythmia with more acidic pills can be a deadly cocktail, and masking the symptom could shortly result in a heart attack, because the real cause was never addressed: namely the other medication and a build-up of dietary and metabolic acid in the connective and fatty tissues. Unfortunately, allopathic medicine tends to negate the significance of symptoms, as if they were just a menace to be suppressed with chemical warfare. But acidic symptoms should always be traced to their root causes, in order to map courses toward life-changing and life-saving interventions. And the root cause of ALL sickness and disease is ALWAYS ACID!
Heart Disease and Dairy Products
Homogenized milk is another reason why heart disease is the number one killer in America, and I suspect that it could actually be the main culprit. Homogenization causes the fat in milk to be broken into such tiny particles that milk does not separate from its cream. These fat particles are so unnaturally small that they are absorbed directly into the bloodstream without proper digestion. These undigested fat particles stress the immune system greatly and cause extreme inflammation. There is an enzyme or acid in cow’s milk that becomes dangerous whenever milk is homogenized. It is called “xanthine oxidase” or simply “XO”. This enzyme is used by young calves to aid with digestion, but it causes cardiovascular disease in humans whenever it is unbound from the fat by homogenization.
With raw, or even pasteurized milk (creamline milk), this toxic substance is not absorbed into the blood. Prior to homogenization, this offensive enzyme or acid was always chemically bound inside milk fats, which were too large to enter into the human bloodstream undigested. The natural particle size of fat inside unadulterated cow’s milk acts as a shield to protect humans from the milk’s xanthine oxidase. Homogenized milk should always be avoided, but if complete avoidance is not an option, then some of its negative effects can be neutralized with folate or folic acid supplements combined with vitamin C. Folic acid is inferior to folate for supplementation purposes. Be advised that the homogenized fats will still be damaging to the heart, even if the arteries are somewhat shielded from the xanthine oxidase. I recommend whole creamline (non-homogenized) milk, which can be found at many health food stores. There is no significant benefit to using raw milk over pasteurized milk, so my final recommendation is to simply stay away from sterile milk.
“Bovine milk xanthine oxidasec (BMXO) may be absorbed and may enter the cardiovascular system. People with clinical signs of atherosclerosis have greater quantities of BMXO antibodies. BMXO antibodies are found in greater quantities in those patients who consume the largest volumes of homogenized milk and milk products.”
– The XO Factor, by Kurt Oster, M.D. and Donald Ross, Ph.D.
Most soft dairy products are made with homogenized milk. Although they are rarely labeled as being so. Some people eat yogurt in an attempt to become healthier, and it is something that I never recommend because it is concentrated acid. Due to homogenization and concentrated lactose and lactic acid, it is not as healthy as most people believe. Most soft dairy products will cause inflammation and arterial damage, because of homogenization, lactose, and lactic acid.
Those who eat homogenized products should compensate somewhat with alkalizing mineral salts and folate (or folic acid), in order to shield the body. Hard cheeses and butter are also concentrated acid and a major cause of heart disease, breast cancer and prostate cancer and are NOT safe for human consumption. Goat milk and goat products are also unsafe, because goat milk is also loaded with acidic sugars that cause heart disease and cancer.
Heart Disease and Fructose
No person, especially a heart patient, should ever consume high fructose corn syrup. It is one of the most damaging ingredients that a person can consume. It is present in a wide variety of processed foods and all major brands of soft drinks. It has long been implicated in causing heart disease and obesity. More recently, it has been tied to diabetes, dementia, and metabolic disorders. High fructose corn syrup is frequently made from genetically engineered corn, and the resultant chemically and genetically engineered fructose produces scarring inside the arteries. Natural fructose such as fructose derived from fruit will also increase dietary acids leading to heart attacks, strokes and cancer. The arterial scarring caused by high fructose corn syrup and fructose from fruit becomes a permanent hindrance to the cardiovascular system. It is vital for anyone with any health problem (particularly heart disease, cancer, or diabetes) to avoid high fructose corn syrup and fructose from fruit completely and indefinitely.
Heart Disease and Sugar
ALL sugars are dietary acids that cause inflammation in the body. The harmful sugars are those which have been bleached white, or which have gone through intensive industrial processing, such as high fructose corn syrup, and bleached sugar (also known as table sugar). These sugars cause inflammation, which damages the arterial walls, requiring the body to produce cholesterol to repair them. These sugars cause both inflammation and oxygen starvation at the cellular level. This makes a person much more likely to acquire diabetes and cancer. Refined sugars also damage and destroy the intestinal villi where stem cells are made, leading to deficient red blood cells and then body cells.. When the intestinal villi or root system of the body are damaged by toxic acidic sugars, people can no longer produce healthy stem cells in the crypts and thus produce sick blood and then sick body cells. The same problems come from processed carbohydrates, which convert into acidic sugars inside the body. As is the case with sugars, what makes carbohydrates especially dangerous is being over-processed and bleached. Thus, whole grain carbohydrates are significantly healthier, and significantly less inflammatory or acidic. This rule does NOT apply to rice! Rice is highly acidic and is a major cause for heart disease. So no rice and limit your intake of whole grains which are mildly acidic.
I would like to include a special warning about purchasing whole wheat bread, because I have found that the chemical ingredients in commercial whole grain breads tend to be significantly worse than those of white breads. Therefore, the only safe bread is homemade bread, which is preferably whole gluten-free wheat. So-called healthy sugars, such as those found naturally in fruit, honey, and evaporated cane juice DO contribute to inflammation, and they DO damage the intestinal villi of the small intestines. If a powdered sugar is needed for cooking, leave it out for your own good. Bottom-line ALL sugars are waste products of fermentation and ALL sugars cause heart disease, cancer and diabetes.
As shown, there are many causes for heart disease, but it always comes back to what you eat, what you drink and very important what you think. Congenital heart failure is present at birth, but it can always be traced back to the acidic lifestyle and diet of the mother, pharmaceuticals taken during pregnancy, or nutrient-depleting toxins inside the mother.
Drinking Coffee Causes Heart Disease, Cancer and Many Other Serious Dis-Ease Conditions!
The United States buys nearly one-half of the world’s supply of coffee beans. It is said that a food service operation can stand or fall on its reputation of the coffee it serves. Every mid-morning and mid-afternoon working day millions of office and factory workers abandon jobs for an employer-paid “coffee break.”
Over 15 million Americans are coffee addicts, and most of them don’t even know it, so insidious is its addictive onslaught. The child or adult may unknowingly ingest several hundred milligrams of caffeine daily.
Like narcotics, alcohol, or cigarettes, coffee and caffeinated beverages are addictive, destructive drugs that each year predispose millions of Americans to crippling illnesses and sometimes fatal diseases.
Coffee and black tea are the two most popular beverages in America. Coffee is America’s number one addictive drug problem leading to hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, and other heart dis-ease problems.
Caffeine withdrawal can occur from missing just one cup of coffee in the morning. Symptoms of caffeine withdrawal are headaches, irritability, inability to work effectively, nervousness, restlessness, and lethargy. A steady user of caffeine may, at times, experience tight headaches in the back of the neck area and be quick to anger or irritation.
Caffeine Acts as a Stimulant
Caffeine is a toxic acidic stimulant. This is not natural for the body. It activates the “fight or flight” response.
It’s important to remember that the caffeine in coffee is a powerful substance. It can stimulate the central nervous system, increase heartbeat and metabolic rate, increase the secretion of stomach sodium bicarbonate, and step up kidney and bladder action. It’s also well known for its annoying ability to affect sleep.i
At higher doses, caffeine can cause “coffee nerves”—a wide assortment of symptoms including anxiety, irritability, headaches, light-headedness, nausea, and diarrhea.
Coffee can cause a temporary increase in blood sugar, but it is quickly followed by a decrease, and stimulates the release of adrenaline, which causes body tissues to be broken down into sugar giving rise to high blood sugar associated with diabetes. Too much insulin is produced, and the blood sugar falls to a low level.
Caffeine is an Acidic Poison
Caffeine, which is the main chemical in coffee, is a powerful poison! A drop of caffeine injected into the skin of an animal will produce death within a few minutes. An infinitely small amount injected into the brain will cause convulsions. The amount of caffeine in a cup of coffee is quite small, yet people drink coffee because of the effect of the caffeine, just as people smoke because of the effect of the nicotine. Both are drugs, and both are habit-forming. Both are poisons. And both will eventually kill you by causing heart failure or a cancerous conditions.
Coffee Drinking and Stomach Ulcers
The general public usually associates ulcers and heart trouble with coffee drinking. J.A. Roth and A.C. Ivy, whose experiments on coffee are famous, state this:
“Caffeine produces gastro-duodenal ulcers in animals to whom the drug is given in a beeswax container so that their stomachs are absorbing caffeine continually. Also, caffeine produces very definite changes in the blood vessels of animals, which are similar to changes produced by prolonged resentment hostility and anxiety.”
Coffee Linked to Hip Fractures
“People who drink more than two cups of coffee or four cups of black or green tea a day could be increasing their risk of hip fracture in old age, according to a new study.” The study, published in the October issue of the American Journal of Epidemiology, is the first to link caffeine consumption with hip fractures that occur in older people whose bones have weakened. A hip fracture often marks an elderly person’s final decline into dependency or death.
Brown University’s Dr. Douglas P. Kiel and his colleagues looked at how much coffee or tea 3170 people reported drinking over 14 years. They then looked to see which ones fractured their hips, a sign that bones had become brittle. They found that heavy caffeine drinkers were 53% more likely to suffer hip fractures.
Trying to become pregnant? Stop drinking caffeinated drinks. Among 104 women, those who drank just one cup of caffeinated coffee a day were half as likely to become pregnant during any given menstrual cycle as those who drank less, according to a 1988 study by Allen Wilcox of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences.
Most of the studies conducted since then have also found that caffeine impairs fertility, but usually only at three or more cups of regular coffee a day.
But the research is only as good or bad as the women’s memories. For example, scientists at John Hopkins University found that among 2500 women who were trying to become pregnant, consuming more than 300 mg of caffeine a day reduced their chances of succeeding in any given month by 17%. But those results were based on the amount of coffee and soft drinks the women could remember having consumed as many as ten years earlier.
Even so, “it’s probably prudent for women who are trying to become pregnant, and especially for those having trouble, to cut back on caffeine,” says Mark Klebanoff of the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development in Bethesda, Maryland.
Does Coffee Cause Heart Disease and Cancer?
There is mounting evidence suggesting that if you want to avoid certain heart and cancerous conditions, you are well-advised to kick the coffee habit. Consider these examples:
One study revealed that not only was coffee drinking associated with increased risk of bladder cancer, but the drinking of non-diet cola drinks also was linked to this problem.
Coffee drinking increases the risk of birth defects.
Coffee drinking increases blood pressure, increasing the risk of heart disease.
It is commonly thought that the drinking of coffee, soft drinks, and other caffeinated drinks is a minor matter as far as our health is concerned. But is it? We cannot estimate its effect on mind and emotions, discrimination, and judgment. And then there are the harmful effects of the stimulation on the heart and other vital organs.
Coffee and other caffeinated beverages are poor substitutes for water. The body needs alkaline fluids, but not stimulating drugs. Giving up the coffee and tea habit is relatively easy to do for most folks—once a commitment has been made. Since caffeine is a less toxic drug than alcohol or street drugs, the majority of coffee and tea drinkers can give up the habit without the sort of difficulties that alcoholics and drug addicts typically experience.
When giving up caffeine, eat and drink only what contributes in some way to good alkaline nutrition for the body. Any food or drink that does not contain alkalizing chlorophyll, oil, water, salts, vitamins, or minerals, should automatically be crossed off the list. While breaking the coffee, tea, cola, energy drink habit, be sure to drink plenty of fresh alkaline green juices and alkaline water at a pH of at least 9.5.
Just how widespread is coffee, tea, soda drinking? The average American drinks over twenty-six gallons of coffee, tea and cola drinks per year, but perhaps more germane to the discussion is caffeine itself. Coffee has over three hundred chemicals; caffeine is only one of them.
23 Reasons to NEVER Drink Coffee Again!
1. Methyl parathion
This is the most toxic pesticide of all. It is is highly toxic to humans, birds, fish, and mammals. It’s used to fight leaf miner infestations. Leaf miners are insects that eat at leaves of plants. Despite how dangerous it is, it’s still (mis)used in some countries.
This pesticide is used against coffee cherry borer, a common coffee consuming bug. It’s doesn’t dissolve easily and takes ages to break down in soil and is toxic to most animals. It affects the central nervous system, reproductive organs, kidneys, and liver, and is considered to be worse than the pest itself; it’s even been responsible for human death!
This is also used against common coffee pests and has been banned in the US for household use because it has caused human death and birth defects. Needless to say, it’s quite detrimental to delicate ecosystems.
Copper-based fungicide used to against coffee rust. Only slightly toxic to birds, little is known about its effect on humans, but it is suspected that there is potential for reproductive problems with chronic exposure. (Like people who drink coffee every day.) It has been found to induce hyperactivity in rats. The major concern is that long-term use of this and other copper-based fungicides is copper accumulation in soils, such as that found in coffee farms in Kenya and in Costa Rica. Copper toxicity has been found in other crops grown in these soils, and copper impacts other biochemical and biological processes in soil which will poison people eating these crops not to mention the people who drink coffee.
One 8-ounce cup of coffee has 95 milligrams of caffeine and a 1-ounce single shot of espresso has 64 milligrams. Consuming too much caffeine can make you restless, anxious, irratable and then dead. Caffeine is an acid or oxidant poison with a pH of 5.5 and an oxidative reduction pH of over +250 mV. When you drink a cup of coffee the body reacts to the poisons in the coffee and you feel it as adrenalin rush as the body starts releasing alkaline buffers to neutralize the poison or the caffeine acid. It only takes 3 cups of coffee or acid to go into potential caffeine intoxication or 300mg which can cause a cardiac arrest. One drop of pue caffeine or 2 grams of caffeine powder will kill you instantly.
Coffee has a perfect pH for cancerous cells 5.5. Research at the Brigham Young University showed that you can keep cancer cells alive indefinitely in a cup of coffee.
7. Oxidative Reduction Potential or ORP
Coffee is NOT an antioxicant but an oxidant which acitivates the alkaline buffering system and depletes your body of alkalizing minerals such as sodium bicaronatea and potassium bicaronate.
Because coffee an acid beverage it causes the stomach to produce sodium bicarbonate which increases the hydrochloric acid in the stomach leading to acid reflux, GERD, ulcers and stomach cancer.
9. Damages Cover Cells of the Stomach
Coffee is a hot beverage and any hot beverage will damage the cover cells of the stomach which cells produce sodium bicarbonate for maintaining the alkaline design of all the body fluids.
Coffee is saturated with hydrogen ions or protons and thus steals energy from your body making you more tired after the stimulating effects wear-off. This creates the addiction for more coffee in order to achieve an energy increase or buzz. Continued use of coffee leads to enervation then irritation, then inflammation, then ulceration and finally degeneration or cancer.
Coffee increases the level of cholesterol. Why? Because coffee contains an acid substance called cafestol which triggers the rise of cholesterol levels. The cafestol blocks a receptor in an intestinal pathway crucial for cholesterol regulation, and is the most potent food chemical to do this. Increased amounts of this acid will increase cholesterol for the purpose of buffering and maintaining the alkaline design of the body.
12. Intestinal Villi Damage
Coffee compromises the alkalinity of the small intestine at a pH of 8.4. This causes the intestinal villi to lie down preventing the biological transformation of food or chyme into stem cells which takes place in the crypts of the intestinal villi. This leads to lowered blood counts, improper blood cell formation and symptoms anemia, pernicious anemia, and hemolytic anemia. Coffee also damages the intestinal villi leading to more serious conditions such as proper bone, muscle and organ regeneration.
Coffee contains over 1000 chemicals of which only 22 have been studied leaving 978 left to study. All of the chemicals studied to date have been found to be carcinogentic. So next time to pick up that cup of coffee think of it as your cup of cancer.
14. Sugar and Cream
Add the sugar and cream and you just created one toxic and addictive acidic/poisonous beverage.
15. Heart Disease –
There is controversial scientific evidence linking coffee consumption to heart diseases. Some studies even state that “consumption is associated with significantly increased risk of cardiovascular disease.” These same studies have shown a cholesterol-raising effect in some of the chemical compounds of coffee, such as determines, cafestol, kahweol and plasma homocysteine. This may be of-set by some of the antioxidants, but the overall agreement is that coffee may adversely effect the heart.
16. Blood Vessels
Coffee disturbs the functioning of blood vessels, both in turgidity and tone.
17. Cardiovascular System
Coffee affects our nervous system, heart rhythms and has been consistently linked to irregular heartbeats. It may also adversely affect blood pressure.
Coffee drinking should be heavily avoided by people at risk, or who have Osteoporosis. Studies show a link between drinking coffee and urinary calcium excretion.
Many people report that coffee increases heartburn.
20. Sleep Disturbance
Coffee, particularly in the evening or at night, can lead to sleep disturbance.
Drinking coffee depletes water reserves in the body.
While the FDA recognizes caffeine as “safe,” it is still a drug, as it significantly alters the nervous system, leading to addiction over time.
23. Extreme Withdrawal Symptoms
You may experience withdrawal symptoms when you try to give up coffee. This can lead to headaches, irritability, body aches, and other more extreme symptoms.
Coffee beans are green and alkaline on the tree until they are fermented and spoiled rotten to a brownish black acidic, heart dis-ease causing color.
Heart Attacks That Strike the So-Called Healthy Person
Some heart attacks occur without warning signs, within people having normal cholesterol levels and blood pressure. Here is how that usually happens. Infections or acids from lifestyle and diet routinely occur in the blood, and a healthy immune system eliminates them without displaying any symptoms. However, if a blood infection or what I call an outfection is not dealt with rapidly, then the outfection becomes more prominent. In such cases, extreme acidic inflammation may be created by the acidic wastes or by direct arterial attacks, and then the so-called “bad cholesterol” must provide protective patches over the resulting scarred tissues. Then the cholesterol patch is covered by a fibrous cap. Macrophages or white blood cells then come along, whose job it is to assimilate things that are causing problems, like acidic waste and cell fragments. Eventually, they become too full to function, at which point scientists call them “foam cells”. These foam cells can die underneath the fibrous cap, forming into something like a boil. Eventually, the boil will burst, and when it does, the body must clean up these toxic acidic bits. The blood cells in the area then join together to form a patch or clot. A poor-ass acidic diet and lifestyle results in excess fibrin in the blood (the clotting factor) which means that it is already thick, sticky, and ready to clot. This, in turn, may cause the patch to become much bigger than it should be, allowing it to be dislodged easily from pressure and contractions. When it is dislodged, it floats through the blood supply to possibly arrive at the brain to cause a stroke, or to the heart causing a heart attack. People experiencing these things may have had no prior symptoms of heart disease. For these so-called healthy victims, the combined effects of their poor acidic lifestyle suddenly comes together at once like an avalanche, with no warnings, and it is ‘game is over’.
Reversing Atrial Fibrillation, CHF, Hypertension, Hypercholesterolemia, Diabetes, and even Alzheimer’s with Dr. Robert O. Young’s pH Miracle Self-Care to a Self-Cure for Heart Disease!
The following beautiful story comes from a loving and caring daughter, Jeri, who shares her 82 yr old Mother’s reversal of Hypertension, Hypercholesterolemia, Congestive Heart Failure, Atrial Fibrillation, and even Alzheimer’s! And, she no longer wears diapers!
“One Lucky Gal! My mother Beverly Harris (82) has had an amazing transformation. I have been intensely cradling and nurturing mom since May 2013 as I have her following Dr. Robert O. Young’s pH Miracle alkaline protocol. Two years later she is once again able to read books, do crossword puzzles, prepare some food dishes, participate in Silver Sneakers and often walk up to a mile a day.
Mom and Dad had lived with my family in an in-law arrangement from 2000-2010 when I decided to move them into an independent community living situation. Dad age 80 passed within 3 months. Several times a week I drove 90 minutes to see Mom for 1-1/2 years, she was failing fast with uncontrolled diabetes, congestive heart failure, and severe dementia. While at a doctor’s visit in May 2013, her heart was in atrial fibrillation and they called an ambulance immediately. After drug therapy and a roller coaster of trial medications, Mom came home to live with me again, she was despondent and unable to care for herself. Wearing diapers, she rocked in a chair and tapped her fingers often dazed in a fog, unable to spit her words out, unable to even watch TV, her eyes were empty… all the while I tried to regulate her 11 medications, which induced severe acidic side effects, from bleeding profusely, sleeping all the time and worsening mental issues. I decided I would try to put her on Dr. Young’s pH Miracle healthy supplementation program and change her acidic diet.
I had to stop work completely, sell my office condo to stay afloat to relieve me of the burdening costs. The other day mom was teary-eyed with joy as we were setting up a kitchen area so she could make her own food. Mom went off all her 11 medications except insulin, but she reduced the insulin from 60 units a day to 16. Her blood pressure is perfect; she slimmed down and looks wonderful for her age. She can even fold clothes!!! Sounds silly but that takes a lot of skill and training. Here is a picture of her now after following Dr. Young’s pH Miracle for (reversing) Heart Disease lifestyle and Diet! She is bright, shining, happy and aware!
Even though having to live on a shoestring budget, we manage to pamper her along with the pH MIracle diet changes and exercise. She gets monthly massages, facials, manicure and pedicures, too. Touch is so important!
Although I know that I will never be able to leave her alone, this journey is a short one for both of us and the experience in reversing all her dis-eases with the pH Miracle protocol and her being virtually drug-free is a beautiful blessing!” If you are suffering from any symptom of heart disease you NOW have the blessing to change your life and save your life with a self-care to a self-cure following Dr. Young’s pH Miracle for reversing Heart Disease!”
NOW Is The Time To Change Your Life and Save Your Life from Heart Disease!
The longer that a person has had heart disease and hardening of the arteries, the more challenging it is to reverse. In some cases, the damage will be too severe to completely eliminate, but stopping the progression and reversing it partially is possible in even the worst cases.
Hawthorn has been proven to help those with congestive heart failure, pulse irregularities, and angina. It is the most recommended supplement for heart health, in both alternative and mainstream medicine. Hawthorn is considered to be the swiss army knife of heart supplements. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, hawthorn has been used since the 1st century as a remedy for heart and respiratory ailments. In Germany, it is regularly prescribed by mainstream doctors to those with heart failure or hypertension. Hawthorn also reduces the likelihood of blood clots, and has a strong anti-inflammatory/anti-acid effect. The research study, Alternative Therapies: Part II. Congestive Heart Failure and Hypercholesterolemia, aggregated the results of 50 clinical trials. It was performed by the Louisiana State University School of Medicine. It concluded that a “clear improvement in the subjects receiving hawthorn was observed”. The standard dosage in the studies was 500 mg. per 100 lbs. of body weight.
Perform a Heavy Acid and Heavy Metal Cleanse
Those with heart disease generally have a history of heavy acids and metal toxicity, and the difference that a heavy acid and metal cleanse makes can be dramatic. As noted earlier, always begin with a thorough liver cleanse. When heavy acids and metals are removed from the connective and fatty tissues, the body can properly create nitric oxide from the amino acid L-arginine. Nitric oxide from L-arginine allows vessels to expand and contract efficiently, and it allows greater oxygen into cells.
Toxic elemental iron accumulation inside the blood is a problem specific to men. Therefore, adult males should never use supplements containing elemental iron. Men develop an excess of elemental iron in their bodies because of male acidic hormones like testosterone, and because the male body will not remove excess elemental iron without proper alkalizing nutritional augmentation. The typical resultant iron excess in males is believed to be one of the main reasons why men die younger than women. The bodies of females of child-bearing age flush excess elemental iron through their menstrual process, which acts as a natural blood-letting. A woman’s remaining iron reserves are then used to produce replacement blood. Donating blood is the quickest way for a man to reduce his iron levels, and it may therefore save two lives. The study, A Historical Cohort Study of the Effect of Lowering Body Iron Through Blood Donation on Incident Cardiac Events, has shown that men who give blood have a 30% reduced risk of heart disease. An unusual but potentially effective option is to occasionally supplement with colloidal silver, for silver is able to neutralize iron in the body.
Dr. Linus Pauling discovered that resveratrol, found in grape skins, aids in the removal of iron. Resveratrol can also directly reverse plaque deposits. A study by the University of Wisconsin found that when people with coronary artery disease drank 20 fluid ounces of purple grape juice for just two weeks, their blood vessels became noticeably more elastic, and both platelet aggregation and LDL oxidation decreased. Due to its resveratrol content, wine consumption has been identified as one of the primary reasons for France’s low rate of heart disease.
In perhaps the greatest irony herein, unprocessed whole mineral salt is needed to reverse heart disease. Natural salts are needed because of the trace minerals that they contain, which are not attainable by any other means. I recommend that readers replace all table salt with mineral-rich unprocessed sea salt. Do not buy the fake sea salts from regular grocery stores, because they are just as refined as the table salts, and are thereby counterproductive. True sea salt should never be a bright white color. Always avoid these salts. Use unrefined, non-adulterated, mineral-rich sea salt that can be purchased online or from a health food store. Liberal amounts of natural sea salt up to 14 grams a day based on a body weight of 70k or 154 lbs. should be added to alkaline meals as a healthy and flavor-enhancing supplement.
The human body can create new arteries when its old arteries become clogged, but it needs new healthy blood and copper to accomplish this. Oral supplementation with copper is dangerous, because it quickly becomes toxic with an overdose, and it takes only a tiny amount to overdose. Excessive amounts are known to cause severe organ damage; especially to the kidneys and liver. Therefore, I discourage people from orally consuming any man-made copper solutions, such as colloidal copper or copper hydroxide. So get your copper from a good unprocessed mineral salt.
For the sake of safety, copper should only be supplemented by way of the following nutritional methods. Natural sea salts contain safe amounts of natural copper and important trace minerals. Another option is non-glycerin chlorophyll extract, which will have the additional benefits of increasing the number of red blood cells, increasing blood oxygenation, protecting against radiation, and neutralizing benzene compounds. It contains much more copper than sea salt.
The Importance of Chlorophyll in Preventing and Reversing Heart Disease
Chlorophyll is the dark green pigment of plants and vegetables, but it can be purchased in a concentrated extract for supplementation. It is a recommended supplement for all heart disease, cancer and diabetic patients. In liberal amounts, chlorophyll safely gets large amounts of copper into the human body. You cannot drink too much.
Avoid all processed foods. They contain excessive amounts of sodium from dangerous sources, such as monosodium glutamate. MSG is especially dangerous to the heart, because it neutralizes L=taurine, which is necessary for pulse regulation. Monosodium glutamate intake in combination with deficiencies of both magnesium and L-taurine can make MSG deadly. This combination is the cause of many unexplained heart attacks in otherwise healthy people; including young athletes in their prime years, whose only mistake was that last meal at K.F.C. (Kentucky Fried Chicken).
Vitamin C for Cleaning the Arteries
Dr. Matthias Rath, M.D., is a leading researcher of heart disease, who worked with the late Linus Pauling. He has continued much of Dr. Pauling’s work. Dr. Rath explained that the first step in reversing coronary heart disease is nutrition, and people with coronary heart disease are deficient in trace minerals. In particular, vitamin C supplementation is essential. In his book, Why Animals Don’t Get Heart Disease, But People Do, Rath explained that the only other species to get heart disease is the guinea pig, and it is also the only other species that does not internally produce its own vitamin C. Hardening of the arteries is a pre-scurvy condition, and it will occur if not enough vitamin C is available. The two doctors proved that vitamin C also bonds with iron, allowing excess iron to be removed, it suppresses cholesterol oxidation, and it shields the body against metabolic and dietary acids.
Niacin (vitamin B-3) and pantothenate (vitamin B-5) work in conjunction with vitamin C. Niacin protects the arteries, and is metabolized in the body from L-tryptophan. L-tryptophan naturally occurs in all green vegetables, but can also be obtained through supplementation. It is recommended that people avoid time-released niacin, because too many people have had bad experiences, including blackouts and hallucinations from the chemical impurities. Both niacin and L-tryptophan are effective for treating depression, and this again reinforces the connection between emotional and heart health. Vitamin B-5 (sold as “pantothenic acid”) works with vitamin C to protect against arterial damage, thus reducing a body’s overall need to produce cholesterol. Vitamin B-5 can be found naturally in vegetables, grasses, sprouts, and legumes.
The Miracle of Oil
In the 1950’s, Dr. Johanna Budwig was reversing heart disease with what is now known as the Budwig Protocol. However, this alternative protocol is much more famous for reversing cancers, and there is a strong connection between the two inflammatory disease states.
At the core of the anti-inflammatory/anti-acid pH Miracle protocol is a combination of flax and hemp seed oil and a food item that is rich in chelating antioxidants. I have discovered that maximum absorption of omega-3 into cells is required to buffer intracellular acids. Whenever properly combined, this solution is best able to penetrate into the deep tissues and through cellular membranes.
Flax and hemp seed oil supplies the building blocks for cellular repair, helps dissolve excess acid-bound cholesterol inside the arteries, balances the high omega-6 concentrations that are found in trans-fats and processed foods, increases cellular energy, increases the efficiency of respiration, and it is an overall tonic to general cellular functions. The heart benefits of flax and hemp seed oil (omega-3 supplementation) are now well-recognized, even by orthodox medicine. Whenever flax and hemp seed oil is heated or exposed to air, it rapidly becomes rancid, and thereby harmful. People should avoid products which contain heated or exposed flax and hemp seed. This often includes cereals, breads, and flour. The companies that sell these products deceptively promote them as being healthier, but ironically, most of the omega oils have been destroyed by the processing, and any remaining oils have become inflammatory and carcinogenic.
The medical establishment has sabotaged alternative medicine’s otherwise beneficial pH Miracle Protocol into being something less than beneficial. Instead of following the original protocol that uses flax and hemp seed oil as the source for omega-3 supplementation, the medical establishment prescribes fish oil to heart disease patients, which has been industrially processed by the pharmaceutical industry with high-heat and poisonous chemical solvents to extract the oil from fish livers. The livers of fish are where the PCB’s, heavy metals, and pesticides are stored; because such substances are too toxic for their digestive and immune systems to excrete normally. A liver is a body’s toxic waste dump, in other words. The high heat and extreme processing that is used to chemically extract the omega oil from fish livers means that the derived oil is always rancid by the time that it reaches the patients; and therefore, this doctor-prescribed ‘medicine’ actually causes heart disease and cancers. Most of the fish that are used to pharmaceutically produce omega oil have high amounts of the inflammatory omega-6 and very low amounts of omega-3, because the pharmaceutical industry’s fish are farm-raised in unhealthy conditions in Chinese fish farms. Adding an even greater insult to the injury, American patients are charged hundreds of dollars for this impure and carcinogenic version of omega-3 by the medical industry, while the safe and more effective equivalent (flax and hemp seed oil) can be found cheaply at any health or natural food store. Health or natural food stores also sell fish oil, but it too should be avoided in lieu of the superior flax and hemp option.
Co-enzyme Q10 for Lowering Blood Pressure
Co-enzyme Q10 is absolutely essential for recovery from heart disease and heart failure. It can be found in some foods (particularly avocado) and it is produced by the body during exercise. While studies have shown great benefits through intravenous supplementation, oral supplements are unfortunately not absorbed well. Thus, it must be obtained through dietary sources and exercise. CoQ10 is essential for the emulsification of fats. It also lowers the blood pressure and provides an increased chance of survival following cardiac arrest. Research has also found that those with gingivitis have a deficiency of CoQ10. Vegetarians may attempt supplementation, even though absorption will be very low. Nevertheless, even a small amount will be helpful.
Vitamin D3 for Prevention and Reversal of Heart Disease
Japan currently has the lowest rate of heart disease in the world, so it is logical to examine their dietary and medicinal practices, in order to adopt them into our own society. The Japanese eat lots of fish, and thereby get large amounts of vitamin D3, omega-3, and safe iodine. In addition to that, whenever heart disease is diagnosed, L-taurine is a common recommendation by Japanese doctors. Taurine is a natural nutrient, which makes it unpatentable (unprofitable), so it is “not approved” for medical use in the United States. It can stabilize the heart rate, neutralize MSG, and it helps the body to better regulate potassium, calcium, and sodium in the body. It is known for its ability to protect the kidneys from damage.
A study conducted by the Oregon Health and Science University concluded that prime doses of vitamin D3 facilitates a decrease in blood vessel and blood clots in people treated for prostatic adenocarcinoma. Moderate sun exposure and ingestion foods wealthy in vitamin D3 additionally minimize the chances of deep vein occlusion. Deep vein occlusion happens once blood forms in bedfast patients. Smoking and taking contraception pills increase the incidence of deep vein occlusion in girls.
Research additionally shows that patients with low vitamin D increase the chance of pneumonic embolisms. embolism is that the pre-cursor to the alternative or heart disease, cardiopathy or cardiovascular disease.
Low vitamin D3 levels in the body may be deadly, according to a recent study hinting that adults with lower, versus higher, blood levels of vitamin D3 may be more likely to die from heart disease or stroke.
Vitamin D3 is an essential vitamin mostly obtained from direct sunlight exposure, but also found in foods and multivitamins.
Dr. Annamari Kilkkinen, at the National Institute for Health and Welfare in Helsinki, Finland, and colleagues compared blood levels of vitamin D and deaths from heart disease or stroke over time in 2,817 men and 3,402 women in Finland.
At enrollment, participants were just over 49 years old on average, and had no indicators of cardiovascular disease, the researchers note in the American Journal of Epidemiology.
During follow-up of about 27 years on average, 640 of the participants (358 men) died from heart disease and another 293 (122 men) died from stroke.
Compared with participants’ with the highest vitamin D, those with the lowest had 25 percent higher risk of dying from heart disease or stroke, Kilkkinen noted in an email to Reuters Health.
There was a “particularly striking association” between vitamin D levels and stroke deaths, the researcher noted, in that having the lowest vitamin D seemed to confer “twice the risk,” compared with having the highest levels of vitamin D.
Allowing for age, gender, and other demographic factors, plus alcohol intake, smoking, physical activity, and season in which vitamin D levels were obtained did not significantly alter these associations.
Another study showed that younger white women with vitamin D deficiencies were about three times more likely to have high blood pressure in middle age than those with normal vitamin D levels.
A study, presented at a meeting of the American Heart Association in Chicago, adds younger women to a growing list of people including men who may develop high blood pressure at least in part because of low vitamin D3.
Researchers in Michigan, who examined data on 559 women beginning in 1992, found that those with low levels of vitamin D were more likely to have high blood pressure 15 years later in 2007.
“Our results indicate that early vitamin D deficiency may increase the long-term risk of high blood pressure in women at mid-life,” said Flojaune Griffin, who worked on the study for the University of Michigan School of Public Health.
Vitamin D, which the human body can make from sunlight and which is found in fatty fish, and dietary supplements, has long been known to contribute to healthy bones and teeth.
But Vitamin D deficiencies, which are widespread in women, are linked to heart disease, cancer, immune system problems and inflammatory diseases.
High blood pressure raises the likelihood of stroke, heart disease and other cardiovascular problems.
The women in the blood pressure study lived in Tecumseh, Michigan, and were 24 to 44 years old with an average age of 38, when the research began.
Researchers measured vitamin D blood levels at the outset and took blood pressure readings once a year. In 2007, they compared systolic readings — the top number in blood pressure results that indicates the pressure within blood vessels when the heart beats.
More than 10 percent of women with vitamin D deficiencies had high blood pressure in 2007, versus 3.7 percent of those with sufficient levels. When the study began, 5.5 percent with deficiencies also had high blood pressure, compared to 2.8 percent with normal vitamin D.
The study was funded by the U.S. National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases.
Almost half the population worldwide has lower-than-optimal levels of vitamin D3 and researchers say the problem is worsening as people spend more time indoors. African-Americans seem at especially high risk as dark skin can make it harder for the body to absorb ultraviolet light.
I have suggested that Vitamin D3 helps to reduce dietary and metabolic acid that leads immune deficiency, bone loss, hypertension and even a cancerous acidic condition. In order to protect the heart against metabolic and dietary acids that can lead to heart disease and/or cancer you need at least 50,000 I.U’s of Vitamin D3 daily.
Protect the Blood Vessels with L-Taurine
L-Taurine supplementation has also been shown to reverse some of the damage caused by smoking, even amongst smokers who continued smoking during the clinical trials. A 2003 study by the Royal College of Surgeons found that damage caused by chronic smoking can be reversed in as little as five days with a dosage of 1.5 grams of L-taurine. The inner lining of the blood vessels and the diameter of blood vessels returned to normal in the study as well.
Reversing Heart Disease With Turmeric and Cayenne
It is wise to take anti-inflammatories or anti-acids when attempting to reverse heart disease. As already stated, inflammation is the first step in arterial plaque. Effective natural anti-inflammatories or anti-acids include devil’s claw, vitamin C, MSM, cherry concentrate, and resveratrol. Curcumin, a component of the turmeric spice, is also an anti-inflammatory and it has the added benefit of reversing some arterial plaque. Never underestimate the benefits of culinary spices, which are sometimes known as herbal medicine.
I have already written an entire article about the benefits of cayenne pepper, and it is absolutely vital for people with heart problems. It aids circulation, stabilizes blood pressure, and it can actually stop a heart attack in its tracks. Seriously. Remember this, because cayenne pepper can save a life. This is especially true whenever it is mixed with L-taurine. The suffering patient may need to hold them in his mouth for fastest results. During a heart attack, nobody ever complains that something tastes too spicy. Cayenne pepper is even good for painless weight loss. It can be conveniently supplemented in a pill form that is available from health food stores. I recommend that everyone with heart problems supplement with cayenne, or put it into a tea daily. Dr. David Christopher has been labeled “Dr. Cayenne” for his endless promotion of this spice.
Another reason for solidification of acids inside the arterial walls is an excess of blood-borne calcium, which is typical in Western nations. Vitamin D and magnesium chloride are critically needed for a body to make proper use of its calcium, so that it does not simply get dumped onto the artery inner walls. A large portion of people are not able to properly assimilate vitamin D supplements, so it is best obtained through sunlight.
It is important that you reduce or eliminate nicotine in cases of severe heart problems. Nicotine, along with alcohol, caffeine, and a host of pharmaceuticals, interferes with the absorption of key nutrients, which are vital for recovery. If you must smoke, ensure that you are making your own cigarettes with organic tobaccos and a rolling machine, or else you will be inhaling a host of chemicals including (but not limited to) carpet glue. Modern cigarettes have intentionally been made much more harmful than they need to be by the chemical industry, and they are fertilized with radioactive fertilizers. Indian tobacco can help eliminate a large number of addictions, including nicotine, and it can also help to clean the lungs.
Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease with Almond and Hazel Nuts
Almonds and hazel nuts lower the heart disease risk because they contain alpha-linolenic acid (LNA). It is an omega-3 fatty acid. Countries with the most LNA in their diets also have the lowest risk of heart disease. Walnuts and cashews are the most nutritious nuts available. Peanuts contain the least amount of nutrients, are likely to have pesticide residues and contain molds and mycotoxins.
Improve Lymphatic and Blood Circulation with Ginkgo biloba
Ginkgo biloba improves circulation, and it reduces cholesterol concentrations in the arterial walls. It also enables the arteries and veins to more fully relax between pumping cycles. The National Institutes of Health reported that ginkgo is very useful for alleviating leg pain that is attributed to blocked arteries.
Exercise is essential for preventing heart disease or recovering from it. Not only does exercise allow the body to create its own CoQ10, but it also creates nitric oxide and L-carnitine. As already stated, nitric oxide from an amino acid called L-arginine aids the vessels to expand and contract more efficiently, and L-carnitine can improve the heart’s function. We recommend finding an exercise that you can enjoy, and if possible, do it with others. Try to remember how enjoyable exercise was when you were a child, and attempt to make it that way again. Let us not forget that positive emotions are vital to heart health. Jogging on a treadmill is a chore, and it can even be a humiliating, demeaning experience. I personally enjoy rebounding, walking, jogging and static contraction weight-lifting.
Lowering Cholesterol With Grapefruit
Grapefruit and especially grapefruit pectin is available in supplement form. It reverses arterial plaque, reduces cholesterol, and widens the arteries. While it is not a standard supplement, I would nevertheless recommend it to anyone with chronic heart problems.
The Most Important Human Food For a Healthy Health
The avocado or the food of the GODS may be the perfect food. It has higher potassium at 486mg compared to a banana at 358mg for helping to maintain the alkaline design of the body fluids, especially the blood, without all the acidic sugar content at 12.23 grams for a banana and less than a gram for an avocado. Each 100 grams of avocado has 2 grams of protein and 14.66 grams of Oleic fat that helps to reduce dietary and metabolic acid and thus reduces the need for LDL cholesterol. The big benefit of the avocado is the cancer preventing and reversing phytonutrients of Lutein and Zeazanathin at 271 ug compared to a banana which only has 22 ug.
There is no question that the avocado is a superior alkalizing and health promoting food. I recommend eating at least 2 to 3 Haas avocados a day. And stay away from bananas – they are acidic.
The Nutritional Facts for a Raw Avocado
Healthy Heart Benefits of Avocados:
- Supports Immune Function
- Reduced Cancer Risk
- Protection Against Heart Disease
- Regulation of Blood Sugar and Insulin Dependence
- Reduces acids and thus the progression of AIDS
- Slowing Aging
- DNA Repair and Protection
- Alleviation of Cardiovascular Disease
- Alleviation of Hypertension (High Blood Pressure)
- Alzheimer’s Protection
- Osteoporosis Protection
- Stroke Prevention
- Reduced Risk of Type I and II Diabetes
- Reduced Frequency of Migraine Headaches
- Alleviation of Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)
- Antioxidant or Anti-acid Protection
- Prevention of Epileptic Seizures
- Prevention of Alopecia (Spot Baldness)
- Avocados are high in monounsaturated “good for your heart” fats. Oleic acid in particular is known to reduce dietary and metabolic acids and thus lowering LDL cholesterol.
- High in alkaline buffers of potassium and Oleic oil to help maintain the alkaline design of the blood, tissues, organs and glands.
Reversing Atherosclerosis With Pomegranate
In May of 2013 the journal Atherosclerosis confirms that pomegranate extract may prevent and/or reverse the primary pathology associated with cardiac mortality: the progressive thickening of the coronary arteries caused by the accumulation of fatty materials known as atherosclerosis.
Mice with a genetic susceptibility towards spontaneous coronary artery blockages were given pomegranate extract via their drinking water for two weeks, beginning at three weeks of age.
Despite the fact that pomegranate treatment actually increased cholesterol levels associated with very low density lipoprotein-sized particles, the treatment both reduced the size of the atherosclerotic plaques in the aortic sinus (the dilated opening above the aortic valve) and reduced the proportion of coronary arteries with occlusive atherosclerotic plaques. Remarkably, the researchers also found that pomegranate extract treatment resulted in the following beneficial effects: Reduced levels of oxidative stress Reduced monocytic chemotactic protein-1, a chemical messenger (chemokine) associated with inflammatory processes within the arteries.
Reduced lipid accumulation in the heart muscle. Reduced macrophage infiltration in the heart muscle. Reduced levels of monocyte chemotactic protein-1 and fibrosis in the myocardium. Reduced cardiac enlargement Reduced ECG abnormalities.
How can something as benign and commonplace as a fruit extract reverse so many aspects of coronary artery disease, simultaneously, as evidenced by the study above? The answer may lie in the fact that our ancestors co-evolved with certain foods (green vegetables and fruit in particular) for so long that a lack of adequate quantities of these foods may directly result in deteriorating organ function.
Indeed, two-time Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling argued that vitamin C deficiency is a fundamental cause of cardiovascular disease, owing to the fact that our hominid primate ancestors once had year-round access to fruits, and as a result lost the ability to synthesize it.
This study adds to the already extant body of clinical research indicating that pomegranate can help unclog your arteries. For instance, back in 2004, the journal Clinical Nutrition published the results of a three year clinical trial in an Israeli population, finding that the daily consumption of pomegranate juice reversed carotid artery stenosis by up to 29% within 1 year.
Remarkably, the blockages in the control group increased 9%, indicating that pomegranate’s artery unblocking effects were even greater than at first apparent.
Pomegranate’s value in cardiovascular disease is quite broad, as evidenced by the following experimentally confirmed properties: Anti-inflammatory: Like many chronic degenerative diseases, inflammation plays a significant role in cardiovascular disease pathogenesis. There are five studies on GreenMedInfo.com indicating pomegranate’s anti-inflammatory properties.
Blood-Pressure Lowering: Pomegranate juice has natural angiotensin converting enzyme inhibiting properties,  and is a nitric oxide enhancer, two well-known pathways for reducing blood pressure.
Finally, pomegranate extract rich in punicalagin has been found reduce the adverse effects of perturbed stress on arterial segments exposed to disturbed flow.
Anti-Infective: Plaque buildup in the arteries often involves secondary viral and bacterial infection, including hepatitis C and Chlamydia pneumoniae.
Pomegranate has a broad range of anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties. Antioxidant: One of the ways in which blood lipids become heart disease-promoting (atherogenic) is through oxidation. LDL, for instance, may be technically ‘elevated’ but harmless as long as it does not readily oxidize. Pomegranate has been found to reduce the oxidative stress in the blood, as measured by serum paraoxonase levels. One study in mice found this decrease in oxidative stress was associated with 44% reduction in the size of atherosclerotic lesions.
The Importance of Green Juicing
Due to the importance of nutrition, I recommend that people follow my pH Miracle green juice feast for about two weeks when they are strong enough. Juicing is the process of mixing alkaline fruit and vegetables together in a blender or juicer, and then using the extracted juices as a food source. A juice fast is a means of flooding a body with alkalizing nutrients that it is normally lacking in due to our modern diets. The first few days may be difficult, but the long-term benefits can be dramatic.
I recognize that many people perceive they require a source of pure protein each day (such as organic hemp seed or hemp protein which is one of the best sources) to be able to continue with their normal lives uninterrupted. The need for protein in the diet is less than 5 grams a day. The body is a great recycler and obtains all of its protein needs from within. Also, all body cells are made from red blood cells and red blood cells are made from stem cells developed in the crypts of the small intestines.
Stem Cells Are Made in the Small Intestines
Stem cells are made from the liquid alkaline food called chyme. The quality of these stem cells is determined by what you eat, what you drink and what you think. The fasting or feasting diet incorporating juiced and purred green vegetables, fruit, alkaline water, mineral salts and polyunsaturated oils is the key to producing healthy stem cells to red blood cells in mass. I call this approach to the restoration of energy, vitality, health and fitness to the body COWS.
COWS – The Four Food Goods – Chlorophyll, Oil, Water and Salt
COWS is an acronym that stands for the four food groups required to increase stem cell production and to improve the quality of these stem cells produced. The ‘C’ stands for chlorophyll which can be found in all organic green vegetables and fruit which becomes the foundational light or life force of intelligence in the stem cells. The ‘O’ stands for oil and more specific polyunsaturated oils for building the lipid membrane of stem cells that holds the liquid light from the chlorophyll. The ‘W’ stands for water and alkaline water which provides the environment for stem cell for movement, intelligence and life. And finally ‘S’ which stands for salt and specifically sodium which is the basis for conductivity and the transport of electrical energy without and within the stem cell. The production of healthy stem cells requires a healthy alkaline pH at 8.4 in the crypts of the small intestines. As you increase the quality and quantity of stem cells in the gut you will increase the quality and quantity of your red blood cells throughout circulation. As you increase healthy red blood cells traveling throughout the vascular system you begin to replace unhealthy body cells with healthy biologically transformed red blood cells to brain cells, nerve cells, muscle cells, bone cells, liver cells, artery cells and new healthy heart cells. You replace and restore an unhealthy heart with a new healthy and youthful heart. This is how YOU reverse ANY health challenge including the many symptoms of heart disease. Understand?
Without Salt There is NO Alkalinity, There is NO Heart Beat and There is NO Life!
“Salt is as important as oxygen to the body. It is salt that transports energy from cell to cell and protects the body from dietary and metabolic acid. In all chronic dis-ease, including heart dis-ease there is always a deficiency of salt. Salt is the glue that holds the spirit body inside the physical body. Salt is the Sol of life. Salt we misjudged you! Salt is GOOD for you! Eating more salt could even lower the chances of heart disease.”Dr. Robert O. Young
For years, doctors have been telling us that too much salt is bad for us. Until now!
A recent study claims that cutting down on salt can actually increase the risk of dying from a heart attack or a stroke.
Its findings indicate that those who eat the least sodium – about one teaspoon a day – don’t show any health advantage over those who eat the most.
In the eight-year study, people with the lowest salt intake had the highest rate of death from heart disease!
In fact, those with less salty diets actually had slightly higher death rates from heart disease.
The study, which followed 3,681 healthy European men and women aged 60 or younger, for about eight years, also found that above-average salt intake did not appear to increase the danger of developing high blood pressure.
The report, in the latest issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association, was released just three months after the U.S. government launched a public health campaign urging restaurants and food manufacturers to cut down on their use of salt.
Sodium was measured in the urine of those taking part, at the beginning and end of the study.
A little more than six per cent of the participants suffered a heart attack, a stroke or some other cardiovascular emergency during the eight years. About a third of these were fatal.
Those who consumed the least salt had a 56 per cent higher risk of death from a heart attack or stroke compared with those who consumed the most.
This was even after obesity, cholesterol levels, smoking, diabetes and other risk factors were taken into account.
There were 50 deaths in the third of participants with the lowest salt consumption, 24 in the third with medium intake and just ten deaths in those with the highest salt levels.
Lead researcher Jan Staessen, head of the hypertension laboratory at the University of Leuven, in Belgium, said: ‘Our findings do not support a generalized reduction of salt intake in the population.
The scientists did not have a firm explanation for their results, but they reportedly speculated that low levels of salt in the body could cause more stress in the nervous system, decrease sensitivity to insulin and affect hormones that control blood pressure and sodium absorption.
Bottom-line if you want to be healthy and prevent or reverse heart disease then you must increase your salt intake as you are decreasing your acid intake. As we heard in the 60’s you have to stop “dropping acid!” if you want to be healthy. Back then and even now it was LSD! A toxic acid from mold called Ergot!
If You want to get high? Get high on a life of feeling incredible which is only possible when you are ingesting salt daily!
Does Salt Cause High Blood Pressure?
Both sea salt and rock salt were well known to the ancient Greeks who noted that eating salty food affected basic body functions such
as digestion and excretion (urine and stools). This led to salt being used medically. The healing methods of Hippocrates (460 BC) especially made frequent use of salt. Salt-based remedies were
thought to have expectorant powers. A mixture of water and salt was employed as an emetic.
Drinking a mixture of two-thirds cow’s milk and one-third salt-water, in the mornings, on an empty stomach was recommended as a cure for diseases of the spleen. A mixture of salt and honey was applied topically to clean bad ulcers and salt-water was used externally against skin diseases and freckles.
Hippocrates also mentions inhalation of steam from salt-water. We know today that the anti-inflammatory effects of inhaled salt provide relief from respiratory symptoms .
Thus, 2000 years ago, Greek medicine had already discovered topical use of salt for skin lesions, drinking salty or mineralized waters for digestive troubles and inhaling salt for respiratory diseases!
The doctor and alchemist Paracelsus (1493-1541 A.D.) introduced an entirely new medical concept. He believed that external factors create disease and conceived a chemically oriented medical system which contrasted with the prevalent herbal medicine. Only salted food could be digested properly: ‘The human being must have salt, he cannot be without salt. Where there is no salt, nothing will remain, but everything will tend to rot.’
He recommended salt water for the treatment of wounds and for use against intestinal worms. A hip-bath in salt water was a superb remedy for skin diseases and itching: ‘This brine – he said – is better than all the health spas arising out of nature.’ He described the diuretic effect of salt consumption and prescribed salt preparations of different strengths that were used for instance against constipation.
‘In recent years there has been much publicity about the need to reduce salt consumption in societies where salt is added to many processed foods (Denton 1984, 584-7).
It has tended to be forgotten that some salt intake is absolutely necessary; that people need salt, sodium chloride, to survive: The chemical requirements of the human body demand that the salt concentration in the blood be kept constant. If the body does not get enough salt, a hormonal mechanism compensates by reducing the excretion of salt in the urine and sweat. But it cannot reduce this output to zero.
On a completely salt-free diet the body steadily loses small amounts of salt via the kidneys and sweat glands. It then attempts to adjust this by accelerating its secretion of water, so that the blood’s salt
concentration can be maintained at the vital level. The result is a gradual desiccation of the body and finally death.’ Roy Moxham
An eight-year study of a New York City hypertensive population stratified for sodium intake levels found those on low-salt diets had more than four times as many heart attacks as those on normal-sodium diets – the exact opposite of what the ‘salt hypothesis’ would
have predicted. (1995)
Dr. Jeffrey R. Cutler documented no health outcomes benefits of lower-sodium diets. Salt Institute
A past president of the American Heart Association, Dr. Suzanne Oparil of the University of Alabama-Birmingham, said her personal view is that the government may have been too quick to
recommend that everyone cut back. ‘Salt restriction as a solitary recommendation for the population for the prevention or the treatment of hypertension.
An abundance of the ingredients in unrefined real salt are as synonymous with life today as they were a billion years ago before single cells appeared here. Lack of them is synonymous with birth defects, organ failure, decay, diseases, premature aging and death at a young age.
The problem with salt is not the salt itself but the condition of the salt we eat – refined! Major producing companies dry their salt in huge kilns with temperatures reaching 1200 degrees F, changing he salt’s chemical structure, which in turn adversely affects the human
The facts are that in the heating process of salt, the element sodium chloride goes off into the air as a gas. What remains is sodium hydroxate which is irritating to the system and does not satisfy the
body’s hunger and need for sodium chloride. Sodium and chloride are two of the 12 daily essential minerals.
In countries which do not alter their salt supply, heart disease and arthritis are so rare that many doctors have never seen a case. Their salt is dried from the ocean by the sun. Many people believe that salt is harmful to the human body.
The truth is we cannot live without sodium or chloride-salt. From salt the body makes magnesium for regulating body temperature to potassium for regulating the delicate alkaline pH of the body fluids. I call this process that takes place in the body fluids nuclear transformation. The theory is based upon the atom of one element giving up its protons to another atom and becoming a new atom as follows:
Na + H = Mg or Na + O = K and K + H = Ca, or Mg + O = Ca, or
Sodium + Hydrogen = Magnesium, or Na + Oxygen = Potassium, or Potassium + Hydrogen = Calcium or Magnesium + Oxygen = Calcium.
Also sodium is a primary element in the production of the alkalizing compound sodium bicarbonate which is produced in the stomach and the essential compound for alkalizing the food we eat.
Also, from salt the body makes iron which is the center atom of hemoglobin, the main molecule of the red blood cell in the follow nuclear transformation equation:
Cl + O = Mn + H = Fe, or
Chloride + Oxygen = Manganese + Hydrogen = Iron.
The bottom-line salt is the foundational element of life and the beginning for the creation of ALL other elements.
There is not enough natural salt in our foods, so we must supplement our diet. When salt is withheld, weakness and sickness follow.
Try this experiment: Mix a spoonful of salt in a glass of water and let it stand overnight. If the salt collects on the bottom of the glass, it has been processed.
NATURAL SALT DISSOLVES! Salt that will not dissolve in water cannot dissolve in your body. Any foreign substance that collects in the body organs and tissues will eventually result in malfunctioning of essential body processes: heart disease, arthritis, hardening of the body tissues and arteries, calcium deposits in the joints, etc. Natural organic salt (saline) will not cause calcification in your body. Real sea salt can dissolve damaging calcium deposits in the body.
Science and medicine have tried to define the precise roles of salt in the healthy and diseased human organism. Blood, sweat, and tears all contain salt, and both the skin and the eyes are protected from metabolic acids from the effects of salt. When salt is added to a liquid, particles with opposite charges are formed: a positively
charged sodium ion and a negatively charged chloride ion.
This is the basis of osmosis which regulates fluid pressure within living cells and protects the body against excessive water loss (as in diarrhea or on heavy sweating).
Sodium and chloride ions, as well as potassium ions, create a measurable difference in potential across cell membranes. This ensures that the fluid inside living cells remains separate from that outside. Thus, although the human body consists mainly of water, our ‘inner ocean’ does not flow away or evaporate. Sodium ions create a high pressure of liquid in the kidneys and thus regulate
their metabolic function.
Water is extracted through the renal drainage system. The body thus loses a minimal amount of essential alkaline water. Out of 1500 liters of blood which pass daily through the kidneys, only about 1.5 liters of liquid leaves the body as urine.
Salt is ‘fuel’ for nerves. Streams of positively and negatively charged ions send impulses to nerve fibers. A muscle cell will only contract if an impulse reaches it. Nerve impulses are partly propelled by co-ordinated changes in charged particles.
Fish from the ocean will die quickly if placed in a solution of refined salt and water. The sodium chloride, in its form as it comes from the refinery, is actually poisonous to them. Bottom line, is that yes it can be harmful to consume too much refined salt, but you cannot consume too much natural unrefined liquid real salt.
So back to the question, “does salt cause high blood pressure?” The answer is absolutely NOT! High blood pressure is caused by dietary
and metabolic acids that are not being properly eliminated through urination, defecation, perspiration and respiration. The truth is, you
do not get high blood pressure you do high blood pressure with your lifestyle and dietary choices. Sodium chloride is the key to reducing
and normalizing blood pressure and maintaining healthy pulse rate below 70 beats a minute.
The pH Miracle for Heart Disease Protocol
The Alkalizing pH Miracle “LIFE”style Protocol for Atherosclerosis, Coronary Artery Disease, Carotid Arterial Disease, Periperal Artery Disease, Deep Tissue Thrombosis, Hypertension that all lead to Heart Attack and Stroke!
THE Cure for Heart Disease Will Be Found in its PREVENTION!
The pH MIRACLE FOR HEART DISEASE “LIFE”STYLE THERAPIES ACCORDING TO DR. ROBERT O. YOUNG
- Nebulizing 5ml of Glutathione and 5ml of N-acetyl-cysteine to reduce acidic mucous in the sinuses and lungs 2 to 3 times a day.
- Nebulizing 10ml of a mucolytic such as colloidal silver at 5 to 10 ppm once a day
- Nebulizing 10 ml of colloidal silica which acts as a decongestant (which reduce swelling of the membranes of the breathing tubes).
- Antibiotics are highly acidic and should NEVER be used with CF. To reduce outfection you reduce tissue acidity which is the cause of infections.
- Whole leaf cold pressed aloe vera juice will reduce inflammation caused by increased amounts of hydrochloric acid when the stomach is producing sodium bicarbonate to buffer the retention of tissue acids.
- Alkalizing hydrocolon therapy or colonics and enemas with mucolytic agents such as magnesium oxide, magnesium chloride, sodium bicarbonate, potassium bicarbonate, calcium glutamate and Vitamin C to treat intestinal obstructions and to infuse alkalizing compounds into the blood stream via the mesenteric blood vessels.
The pH Miracle for Heart Disease Nutraceuticals and Colloidal Nutritional Supplements
- Eliminate all inflammatory acidic liquids and foods that increase sodium bicarbonate and the formation of mucous, including dairy products (milk, cheese, sour cream, and ice cream), wheat (gluten), processed soy except for non-GMO organically sprouted soy, corn, potatoes, all high-sugar fruit including bananas, oranges, pineapple, berries, apples, all forms of sugar including honey, maple syrup, fructose, maltose, dextrose, glucose, preservatives, food additives and excessive salt and all animal meats including fish, poultry, beef and pork.
- Eat more foods that decrease acids and the formation of mucous, including garlic, onions, watercress, horseradish, mustard, parsley, celery, cucumber, broccoli, spinach, rose hips tea, lemon, lime, tomato, avocado and anti-inflammatory/anti-acid oils from nuts and seeds.
- Eat more foods that are high in potassium, such as avocado sprouts and kale.
- Avoid all processed and refined foods, such as white breads, pastas, and sugar.
- Eliminate all red meats and lean meats, pork, poultry, fish, processed soy and all legumes. Increase plant based proteins from avocado, hemp and sprouted organic soy.
- Use healthy oils in foods, such as cold pressed olive oil and avocado oil.
- Eliminate trans fatty acids, found in commercially baked goods such as cookies, crackers, cakes, French fries, onion rings, donuts, processed foods, and margarine.
- Eliminate all grains from the diet.
- Eliminate all corn products.
- Eliminate peanuts.
- Eliminate all forms of vinegar.
- Eliminate all forms of mushrooms.
- Eliminate coffee, black teas and other stimulants, alcohol, and tobacco.
- Eliminate sport drinks, energy drinks and soft drinks.
- Drink 4 to 6 liters of 9.5 alkaline water daily based upon 1 liter per 30 kg of weight. Add 10 grams of pH Miracle green powder with 5 drops of pH Miracle puriphy in each liter of water. This will help build healthy stem cells and blood in the crypts of the small intestines and reduce latent tissue acidosis which is the cause of All sickness and disease, including Atherosclerosis and Coronary Artery Disease.
- Alkalizing exercise moderately, for 60 minutes daily, 6 days a week. Choose from walking, jogging, elliptical machines, rebounding, swimming, biking, Younga Yoga, isotonic weight lifting, just to name a few.
- Omega-3 fatty acids, such as Hemp, Flax and Borage oils, 4 – 6 capsules or 1 tablespoonful of a 2 to 1 to 1 (Omega 3 to 6 to 9) combination of these three oils at least three to four daily, to help decrease inflammation caused by dietary and/or metabolic acids and improve the health and strength of the lipid membranes of stem, blood and body cells.
- A multivitamin daily, containing the acid chelating antioxidant vitamins A, D, E, K, the B-vitamins and trace minerals, such as sodium, magnesium, potassium, calcium, zinc, and selenium.
- Digestive acid buffers of sodium bicarbonate, potassium bicarbonate, magnesium chloride and calcium chloride to reduce hydrochloric acid in the stomach, bowels, blood and tissues, 1 – 2 capsules 4 times daily with 9.5 pH alkaline water.
- Magnesium oxide with Vitamin C to breakdown undigested acid foods of animal protein, dairy products and mucous in the 9 yards of the small intestines.
- Coenzyme Q10, 100-200 mg at bedtime, for antioxidant and supporting the white blood cells in removing bacteria, yeast and solidified acids from the the blood and tissues.
- N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC), 2000 mg daily 3 times a day, for antioxidant effects for buffering metabolic acids of acetylaldehyde and ethanol alcohol that effect the circulatory, respiratory and neurological systems. NAC can also be given by IV at 5ml where each ml equals 200mgs.
- Grapefruit seed extract (Citrus paradisi), 100 mg capsule or 5 – 10 drops (in alkaline water) 3 times daily, for buffering the acids of diet, metabolism, bacteria and yeast for increasing the alkaline pH of the gastrointestinal system to 8.4..
- Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), 3,000 mg twice a day, to help decrease the acids that cause inflammation or pain.
- Organic hemp protein, 10 – 20 grams daily mixed in fresh organic hazel or almond milk, for supporting the white blood cells and blood building.
- L-Arginine, 10 grams 3 times a day to break up solidified acid crystals causing circulation problems of the vascular and lymphatic system.
- Magnesium chloride, 2 grams 3 times a day to oxidize dietary and metabolic acids.
- Pure organic chlorophyll from sprouted Moringa, 5 to 10 drops in 4 ounces of 9.5 pH alkaline water 3 times a day. This mixture at 10ml can also be put into a nebulizer to reduce acid congestion in the sinuses and lungs.
- Glutathione, 2000mg 3 to 4 times daily, neutralizes harmful acids or oxidants introduced into the lungs from the air or blood or those released by cells. Exotoxins from bacteria can overload the endobronchial terrain and feed the fires of acidic inflammation. This staggering burden increases the oxidative sensitivity of the lung, resulting in further injury of lung parenchyma. Data supports evidence of a decrease in the antioxidant tri-peptide glutathione. (Roum JH, Buhl R, McElvaney NG, et al. Systemic Deficiency of Glutathione in Systic Fibrosis. J Appl Physiol 1993; 75:19-24).
- Glutathione is always in great demand and is rapidly consumed when we experience any sort of emotional or physical stress, fatigue and even moderate exercise. Some well-known causes of glutathione depletion are as follows:
- 1) Acidic lifestyle and diet
2) Air and Water pollution
3) Prescription and recreational drugs
4) Ultraviolet and Radiation from cells phones, computers, electrical cars, power lines, hair dryers, etc.
5) Emotional and physical stress
6) Injury, trauma or burns
7) Heavy metals
8) Cigarette smoke
9) Household chemicals
10) Acetaminophen poisoning
11) Exhaust from motor vehicles
12) Septic shock caused by the retention of metabolic and/or dietary acid.
- Ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba), 40 – 80 mg 3 times daily, for inflammation and as an antioxidant to buffer acids in the blood, tissues and organs.
- Wheat, Barley and Kamut rrganically sprouted grasses, 250 – 500 mg daily, for building blood, detoxing the alimentary canal, buffering dietary and metabolic acids and supporting the white blood cells in the removal of solidified acids. You may also prepare teas from these grasses.
- Cat’s claw (Uncaria tomentosa) , 20 mg 3 times a day, for inflammation caused by dietary and/or metabolic acids, supporting the white blood cells and reducing acids from bacteria, yeast and mold in the blood and tissue fluids.
- Milk thistle (Silybum marianum), 80 – 160 mg 2 – 3 times daily, for detoxification of acids in the blood, liver and kidneys.
- Bromelain (Ananus comosus) , 40 mg 3 times daily, for pain and inflammation caused by dietary acids.
- Ground Ivy (Hedera helix) , 50 mg 3 times daily, to decrease acids and the build-up of mucous and to loosen phlegm.
Additional Alkalizing Non-Invasive Treatments
1) Intravenous (IV) Alkalizing Therapy
The main purpose of IV therapy is to hyper-perfuse the tissues with alkaline compounds of sodium bicarbonate, magnesium chloride, potassium bicarbonate and calcium glutamate and thus buffer the retention of excess dietary and/or metabolic acids in the blood, body tissues, especially the organs reducing inflammation, mucous, solidification of tissues, cysts and tumors.
Comedian Bob Hope lived to the ripe old age of 100. When he was asked what he attributed his longevity he said, “daily massage.” Massage helps to remove metabolic and dietary acids out of the connective and fatty tissues back into lymphatic and then blood circulation for removal out through urination and defecation.

2. Reduces pressure in the intra-abdominal area which improves venous return from lower extremities and pelvic zone. Relaxes pressure on the hips and lumbar column and is beneficial to their mobility. Relaxes abdominal muscles from the action of water temperature and massage that accompany the colonic. Increases abdominal muscle tone due to reducing intestinal residues.
3. Stimulates peristaltic action of intestines restoring normal muscle tone and therefore removal of constipation. Potential to correct intestinal transit problems such as constipation and diarrhea without resorting to prescription drugs.
4. Sensation of well being due to the elimination of mucus, alimentary remainders not digested, gases and toxic bacteria. Relieves inflammation and edema due to elimination of irritating substances.
5. Expels parasites due to alternating water temperatures and complementary additives to colonic water such as garlic and other vermifuge (parasite killing) herbs. Decreases demineralization of body because it improves metabolism.
7. Reduces weight and slims due to activating elimination. Creates an increase in mental capacity and rejuvenation since it decreases the degenerative process, normal or accelerated, by removing toxic substances that affect biological aging.
What Will Colonics Do?
2. Exercise the Colon Muscles: The build-up of toxins weakens the colon and impairs its functioning. The gentle filling and emptying of the colon improves peristalsis (muscular contraction) by which the colon naturally moves material. Having Colonics is like taking your colon to the gym.
3. Reshape the Colon: When problem conditions exist in the colon, they tend to alter its shape because the colon is a muscle and it will enlarge to the build up of toxins not being released. That in turn causes more problems. The gentle action of the water, coupled with massage techniques of the colon therapist, help to eliminate bulging pockets of poop and narrowed, spastic constrictions finally enabling the colon to resume its natural state.
4. Stimulated Reflex Points in the Colon: The colon is connected to every system and organ in the body by reflex points. The colonic stimulates these points thereby affecting the corresponding body parts in a beneficial way. Thus creating overall well-being.
5. Hydration of the Whole Body: Water is absorbed into the body through the colon which increases the volume of blood. The circulation of the blood is increased, resulting in a greater bathing of the cells. This dilutes the toxins and flushes them out; relieving toxemia and uremia; and increasing elimination both through the kidneys, and the skin as well as the bowels. All this generally assists the cardiovascular and circulatory systems to be more efficient.

Whether you manage stress by getting a massage, meditating or working out, as long as you’re doing something to curtail the anxiety you’re headed towards a healthier life. Stressful situations such as births, deaths, divorce and employment concerns often slow down the blood flow to the heart, raise cholesterol levels, decrease your mental well-being and weaken the immune system with the increase of metabolic acids.
7) Stay Positive
If you always think the glass is half full, you’re on the right track. Mayo Clinic research shows that people with a positive outlook typically live 19 percent longer than people who see the glass as half empty. Although it’s questionable if this can be attributed to optimists being more likely to seek medical help when they’re ill or their immune systems being stronger as a result of their sunny outlook, the result is that they live longer. Optimists are also less likely to suffer depression and helplessness than their pessimist counterparts because they create less acid in their body.
8) Quit Drinking Alcohol
Alcohol is a toxic acidic fluid and compromises the alkaline design of the body. Drinking any acidic alcohol will shorten your life.
9) Quit Smoking
Let’s face it: smoking is bad for you. Really bad. Need proof? Based on data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, adult male smokers lost approximately 13.2 years of their lives and female smokers lost 14.5 years of their lives because of smoking. Plus, chronic diseases caused by smoking tended to curtail the quality of life of smokers while they were still alive.
10) Laugh out Loud
Experts say that laughter is the best medicine. After all, it increases your immune system response, lowers acidic blood sugar levels in diabetics, increases oxygen flow throughout your entire body and helps induce a state of relaxation promoting better sleep. The positive health effects are no laughing matter: according to the University of Maryland Medical Center, average blood flow typically increases 22 percent during and after bursts of laughter compared to a decrease in blood flow by 35 percent during mental stress.
11) Get Married
Exchanging vows comes with its own medical perks. A study in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health showed the death rate for people who were unmarried was significantly higher compared to people who were married and living with their spouses. While the results were significant among the various unmarried subcategories such as divorced, separated, or widowed populations, it was significantly stronger for people who had never been married.
12) Daily Hugs
Couples who had physical contact, such as a brief hug and ten minutes of hand holding, actually lowered their heart rates and blood pressure by 50 percent, according to researchers at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. Plus, in a previous study it was determined that hugging and hand-holding reduces the negative effects of stress.
13) Eat An Alkaline pH Miracle Diet
Eating an alkaline pH Miracle diet rich in spouted grains, seeds, nuts, vegetables and fruit is the best way to maintain the delicate pH balance of the blood and tissues and the alkaline design of the body. This will then help to prevent any and all sickness and disease, including heart disease. It will also help to improve the quality and the quantity of life well beyond 100 years.
14) Make Love Daily
Daily sex releases feel-good chemicals that keep your heart healthy and happy.
15) Exercise for 1 Hour Daily
Daily exercise improves blood and lymph circulation that opens up the pores of the skin to remove metabolic and dietary acids via the sweat. Exercise will protect you from the acids that make you sick and tired. It also slows down the aging process caused by metabolic and dietary acids that have not been eliminated through the four channels of elimination – urination, defecation, perspiration and respiration. Some of my favorite exercises are rebounding, jogging, walking, swimming, tennis, and love-making.
Any type of exercise is important and good for your body because it causes YOU to sweat-out acidic metabolic, environmental, respiratory and dietary waste! Here are just a few of the benefits of exercising and sweating on a daily basis!
1) EXERCISE WILL IMPROVE YOUR SEX LIFE!
If you improve your fitness level you will have more desire and energy for sexual activity. If you are feeling tired all the time physical activity can also improve your energy levels and your look, which can have a positive effect on your sex life. Current research indicates that exercise can prevent and/or reverse challenges with erectile dysfunction. Daily exercise can also improve sexual arousal or libido for women. 
2) EXERCISE WILL IMPROVE YOUR MOOD
A recommended minimum dose of daily physical activity for one-hour will keep you happy with improved circulation. Daily exercise will remove all the unwanted symptoms of laziness and lost of interest in the basic desire to move the body and sweat.
3) EXERCISE WILL MAKE YOU SMILE
After two weeks of daily exercise for one hour a day you will improve your electrical conductivity leading to increased energy and the feeling of happiness. Exercise stimulates increased circulation and the release of electrical energy in the form of the electron giving you the over-all feeling of happiness making you smile. Exercise causes the release of neurotransmitters that makes you feel incredible good. Not just that, the stimulation of endorphins or feel good chemicals are released into the blood stream making you feel euphoric. Exercise will also decrease your appetite and support your immune system or white blood cells. This will help reduce metabolic and dietary acids that make you sick, tired, fat and stressed. [2,3] When you start feeling better, you start doing better and when you start doing better you start thinking and feeling better. After exercising and sweating you will feel so good you will forget that you were depressed. Now that will put a smile on your face! 
4) EXERCISE WILL IMPROVE YOUR OVER-ALL HEALTH
Increased physical activity will certainly help to prevent and in some cases reserve life-threatening conditions. If you exercise just three days a week you can lower the chances of following dis-eases or conditions, including,
1) brain stroke [5,6],
2) metabolic syndrome ,
3) cardiovascular disease ,
4) diabetes [9,10],
5) arthritis ,
6) cancer [12,13,14], and
7) heart disease.
Optimal exercise and sweating is harmless and a safe natural “drug” that should be received daily for one hour so it can protect you for metabolic and dietary acids that destroy the quality life. “A wise man should consider that health is the greatest of human blessings, and learn how by his own thought to derive benefit from his illnesses.” ― Hippocrates
5) EXERCISE WILL CONTROL YOUR ACIDIC WEIGHT
The best method to control weight along with the diet is daily exercising and sweating. I recommend all types of exercise but my favorites are low impact rebounding, yoga, jogging, hiking and tennis. You can do any type of physical exercise you like because moving your body increases circulation, opens up the pores of the skin and releases metabolic and dietary acids via sweat. Doing this daily will improve the quality and the quantity of your life by maintaining the alkaline design of the body fluids. Finally, it will help you better control your weight by removing the acidic waste products in the fatty tissues that are making you fat. And as you are removing metabolic and dietary acids through the pores of the skin you are lowering your risk of all other dis-eases.
6) EXERCISE WILL BUILD MUSCLE MASS
Resistance training or static contraction exercising will help you build muscles. This type of training or exercise causes blood to flow into the muscle that is being contracted. When the blood pools into the muscle under stress or contraction from a weight you are holding the blood will then redifferentiate into new muscle cells. When this happens the muscle gets stronger while getting bigger. It is important to understand that you build muscle with blood and you build blood with chlorophyll, polyunsaturated oil, alkaline water and whole natural mineral salts. The quality of the blood will determine the quality and health of the muscle cell all determined by what you eat and what you drink. As you increase healthy and strong muscle mass with a plant-based diet you will also increase your metabolism. This type of exercise will increase your resting metabolic rate 24 hours after the training [16, 17,18] Finally, as you age the so-called natural process called sarcopenia occurs. Sarcopenia means that the body is loosing muscle, after 25 years at a rate of 0.5 to 1%. The lack of exercise can increase the risk of sarcopenia.  Because daily exercise can increase circulation and the elimination of metabolic and dietary acids via sweat this slows down and eliminates the risk of sarcopenia or muscle loss so muscles can remain healthy and strong.
7) EXERCISE WILL HELP YOU SLEEP BETTER
Did you know that people who exercise regularly also sleep better? Current research shows that people with insomnia can improve sleeping with daily exercise.  If you exercise before going to bed you will remove metabolic and dietary acids that will allow the body to relax, rest and restore. This will help the body sleep deeper and sounder awakening in 4 to 6 hours refreshed and ready to go.
8) EXERCISE CAN BE LOTS OF FUN!
Exercise time should be fun and not something that you “have” to do but “want” to do. It is better to exercise with a friend or in a group because you will motivated by those who are exercising with you. If you exercise alone make sure you change-up the type of exercise you do to keep it interesting. I like to run every other day, rebound every day and do weights the days I am not jogging. If you only do one type of exercise every day the chances are high that you will get bored and stop. It is very important to engage in exercise types that you enjoy. You can include in your exercise choices, dance classes, yoga, hip-hop yoga, working out in a gym, martial arts classes, speed walking or any type of physical activity that will cause you to work-up a good sweat. Once again, it is very important that you engage in different types of exercises on a daily or weekly basis and exercises that you love or actually enjoy.
9) EXERCISE IS GREAT FOR A CHILDS MENTAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTH
Studies show that exercise improves behavorial patterns in children with ADHD or Autism. Research has demonstrated that children who exercise can improve their focus and prevent distraction. This is of great help for these children because “inhibitory control” is the biggest problem they face.[23,24] Studies have shown that exercise will improve body composition and where metabolic and dietary acids will be stored in the connective and fatty tissues. After 9 months of research the authors found that children who exercise have improved fitness level and had less body fat (especially abdomen fat which can increase risk of liver, pancreas, colon and reproductive cancers). The children in the group that exercised had moderate physical activity 5 days a week for about 70 minutes. 
10) EXERCISE CAN IMPROVE BONE DENSITY AND PROTECT AGAINST OSTEOPOROSIS
The skeletal system serves as a support for the body organs, glands and tissues. It is very important to keep them alkaline so they can be healthy and strong. Bones are constantly breaking down and rebuilding every day. In fact you have a new skeletal system every 90 days. Before the age of 30 the body regenerates the bone quickly. When you reach peak bone mass (although this can vary from person to person), after 30 years of age, your body loses balance, and this leads to bone loss year after year by approximately 1% per year.[26,27] This may lead to an increase risk of osteoporosis if you are living an acidic sedentary lifestyle.  Women also have increased bone loss after menopause because the activity of the endocrine system decreases because of acidity caused by an acidic lifestyle and diet. Resistance training ( lifting weights and statically holding the maximize weight for at least 30 seconds and then releasing the contraction) can prevent bone loss by causing red blood cells to flow to the contracted muscle and bone to build new healthy muscles and bones.  Scientists in a recent study compared the bone density of college women with different body weights and physical activity levels. They concluded that women who exercise have lower body weight and higher bone density.
What types of exercises are good to build bone mineral density?
1) Aerobic and Resistive training.
Aerobic and resistance training is good for healthy muscles and bones.[32,33] Scientist found that women between 25 and 50 years of age who rebound or hop at least 10 times twice a day, with 30 seconds between each hop, have increased bone density of the hip after 4 months.
I have recommended for years low or no-impact alkalizing exercising on a whole body vibrational machine or a whole body rebounding apparatus to keep the bones and muscles strong, healthy and fit. These types of exercise apparatuses will especially be good for your bones because it increase blood circulation to the bones and muscles  which can increase bone and muscle density. [36,37]
Resistance exercising should be done at least 2 to 3 times per week. Intensity—moderate to high.
2) Weight Training
3) Rebounding or Jump Training
5) Stair Running
6) Body Weight Exercises like planking
7) Rope Jumping
8) Running, Jogging or Walking
11) Whole body vibrational exercising
Generally bicycling and swimming are NOT usually consider exercises that can increase bone or muscle density. Here is the study that shows that professional cyclists have lower bone density during this type of excercise. Citation from this study also concludes:
In summary, cycling may not be as beneficial to bone health as running and other weight bearing activities. Cycling does not appear to be more detrimental to bone health than a sedentary lifestyle, and it is beneficial for cardiovascular health. It is unclear whether an inverse dose response relationship exists between optimal bone health and volume of cycling.” National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases also states that swimming is not the best type of excercise for improving bone density. There is a study that shows that swimming is better than not exercising at all. You can also see that this study made a systematic review of how swimming affects bone tissue. The study concluded that swimming does NOT have negative effects on bone density.
11) EXERCISE IMPROVES BREATHING AND LUNG HEALTH
Exercise can help strengthen the muscles that are responsible for opening the lungs so that oxygen can enter and eliminate the acid called carbon dioxide. Exercising can also improve the efficiency with which oxygen enters the cells of the body. This is a positive impact on your aerobic capacity.[43,44] You can also test the capacity of your lungs by running for 2 minutes without catching your breath. A fit and healthy person with healthy lung capacity will be able to do this without stopping or catching his or her breath or feeling a tightness or pain in the throat.
12) EXERCISE IMPROVES MEMORY
Research shows that brain neurons (special type of cells), which help us to think,move, perform body functions and even improve memory are improved after just a TWO weeks of exercise.
13) EXERCISE PREVENTS LOSS OF BRAIN TISSUE
Study, which used an MRI machine to measure the amount of brain tissue in adults 55 years and older,shows that physical activity reduces the risk of loss of brain tissue in areas that are intended for thinking and memory.[46,47]
14) EXERCISE PREVENTS DEMENTIA
There is also evidence that regular DAILY exercise during life can reduce risk of dementia.
15) EXERCISE CAN PREVENT THE FLU OR THE COLD
The flu is simply the body removing the build-up of acidic metabolic and dietary acids through the pores of the increase by increasing body temperature. To prevent the body heating up or inducing a fever you can exercise and sweat-out the accumulated excess acids. You can also use hyperthermia by sitting in an infrared sauna for 30 minutes and sweating-out acidic waste. This is a passive form of exercise and can be don on a daily basis. Make sure you are drinking at least 1 liter of alkaline water for each one-hour of exercise or sauna. It is vitally important to replace the fluids loss through the sweat via the pores of the skin. Scientist recently found that people who exercise regularly have 50% less chances to do a flu or cold than people who don’t exercise and sweat.
Conclusion: There are many health, wellness and fitness benefits of daily alkalizing exercise so start exercising every day for at least one hour. And remember this – if you don’t make time to exercise for one hour every day you will be forced to make time to die!

16) Have Daily Prayer and/or Meditation
Daily prayer and/or meditation will help to quite the brain and connect you to your true, creative, powerful and eternal spiritual self. Remember you are a spiritual being having a physical experience NOT a physical being having a spiritual experience.
17) Practice Daily Forgiveness
Forgiveness of oneself and of others is important in achieving and maintaining a healthy mind, body and spirit.
True forgiveness is achieved when we remember the trespass no more!
DIAGNOSIS, PROGNOSIS AND FOLLOW-UP
Blood tests check the levels of certain fats, cholesterol, sugar, c-reactive cardiac test, homocysteine test, and proteins in your blood. Abnormal levels may show that you have risk factors for acids that cause atherosclerosis.
Certain electrical patterns that the EKG detects can suggest whether CAD is likely. An EKG also can show signs of a previous or current heart attack.
5) Chest X Ray
A chest x ray takes a picture of the organs and structures inside the chest, including your heart, lungs, and blood vessels.
A chest x ray can reveal signs of heart failure.
9) Stress Testing
- Abnormal changes in your heart rate or blood pressure
- Symptoms such as shortness of breath or chest pain
- Abnormal changes in your heart rhythm or your heart’s electrical activity
During the stress test, if you can’t exercise for as long as what’s considered normal for someone your age, it may be a sign that not enough blood is flowing to your heart. But other factors besides Atherosclerosis or Coronary Artery Disease can prevent you from exercising long enough (for example, lung diseases, anemia, or poor general fitness).
Some stress tests use a radioactive dye, sound waves, positron emission tomography (PET), or cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to take pictures of your heart when it’s working hard and when it’s at rest.
These imaging stress tests can show how well blood is flowing in the different parts of your heart. They also can show how well your heart pumps blood when it beats.
Angiography is a test that uses dye and special x rays to show the insides of your arteries. This test can show whether acidic plaque is blocking your arteries and how severe the plaque is.
A thin, flexible tube called a catheter is put into a blood vessel in your arm, groin (upper thigh), or neck. A dye that can be seen on x ray is then injected into the arteries. By looking at the x-ray picture, your doctor can see the flow of blood through your arteries.
11) and 12) Full-Body Ultra Sound and Thermography
Atherosclerosis and Coronary Artery Disease patients receive an Ultra Sound and Thermography tests every 3 – 6 months. They also receive chest x-rays every 2 – 4 years, or more often if needed.
Medical Diagnositc Ultrasound
Medical Diagnostic Ultrasound Imaging, also called ultrasound scanning or sonography, is a method of obtaining images from inside the human body through the use of high-frequency sound waves. The reflected
Recent research reveals that portable ultrasound can reveal plaques in peripheral arteries that may lead to heart attacks and strokes before symptoms arise, in both developed and developing country settings!
A study of portable ultrasound carried out in the US, Canada and India has revealed the potential of this technology for detecting plaques in peripheral arteries that can lead to heart attacks and stroke before symptoms arise, in both developed and developing country settings, allowing preventive treatment in those affected. The study, published in Global Heart (the journal of the World Heart Federation), is by Dr Ram Bedi, Affiliate Assistant Professor, Department of Bioengineering, University of Washington, Seattle, WA, US, and Professor Jagat Narula, Editor-in-Chief of Global Heart and Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, US, and colleagues.
Numerous studies have shown that it is possible to assess subclinical atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) using ultrasound imaging. Since more portable and lower cost ultrasound devices are now entering the market, along with increased automation and functionality, it may be possible in future to routinely examine people with ultrasound to establish any ASCVD present before symptoms emerge, so that future disease can be prevented, for e.g. using medication. In this study, ASCVD was determined using ultrasound of both the carotid arteries (those in the neck) and the ileofemoral arteries (entering the top of the leg). The findings were summarised in an index called the Fuster-Narula (FUN) Score.
Data were gathered from four cohorts, two Indian and two North American. In India, screening with automated ultrasound imaging was conducted over eight days in 941 relatively young (mean age 44 years, 34 per cent female) asymptomatic volunteers recruited from the semiurban town of Sirsa (Haryana) and urban city of Jaipur (Rajasthan) in northern India. The cohort from Sirsa was recruited because all participants had already undergone aggressive lifestyle changes (smoking cessation, no alcohol, vegetarian diet, physically active lifestyles, daily meditation).
To compare the imaging findings with traditional risk factors, two cohorts (481 persons) were recruited from primary care clinics in North America (one in Richmond, Texas, US, the other in Toronto, Canada). Apart from the same ultrasound examinations given in the Indian cohort, comprehensive ASCVD risk factor data was gathered from the participants. All of them were self-referred asymptomatic individuals (mean age 60 years, 39 per cent female). Data collected included cholesterol levels, blood pressure, glucose level, weight, height, smoking and family history. These people were attending clinics for routine health check-ups in most cases. Effectiveness of established ASCVD prevention guidelines was then compared to results from direct imaging.
In India, ultrasound revealed plaques in at least one artery in almost a quarter (24 per cent) of those examined; 107 (11 per cent) had plaques in only the carotids, 70 (seven per cent) in both the carotids and iliofemoral arteries, and 47 (five per cent) had plaques in only the iliofemoral arteries. If just the carotids had been examined, 177 (19 per cent) of the asymptomatic subjects would have been identified with plaques; by adding the iliofemoral examination, 47 additional individuals (five per cent of the total) were identified with plaque. Older age and male sex were associated with the presence of plaque both in urban and semiurban populations (the much higher levels of smoking in men could account for their higher risk).
Data from the American and Canadian clinics showed that 203 subjects (42 per cent) had carotid plaque; 166 of these (82 per cent of those with plaque) would not have qualified for lipid-lowering therapy such as statins under widely used guidelines known as ATP III (Third Report of the Expert Panel on Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of High Blood Cholesterol in Adults [Adult Treatment Panel]) guidelines. Using the recently published more stringent ATP IV guidelines, 67 people (one third of those with plaque and 14 per cent of the total US/Canadian cohort) individuals with carotid plaque would also have failed to qualify for treatment.
In addition, the study revealed 34 people in the US/ Canada setting who qualified for treatment under ATP III but did not have any plaques, and this number increased to 81 under ATP IV (if receiving treatment such as statins, these people could be said to be overtreated, since no plaques were evident).
The authors state, “Our study shows that automation in ultrasound imaging technology allows even non-expert users to rapidly evaluate the presence of subclinical atherosclerosis in a large population. Detection of sub-clinical atherosclerosis is further enhanced by inclusion of the iliofemoral artery examination.” They add, “It seems that plaque information from ultrasound images may serve as a guide for initiating medical intervention regardless of the availability or knowledge of traditional risk factors. Our results further suggest that not only in low- and middle-income countries, but even in the developed nations, ultrasound images may help refine strategies for medical intervention. It might however still be too contentious to suggest that risk factors–positive and imaging-negative asymptomatic subjects may be spared from medical intervention. Conversely, arguments against initiating medical intervention on risk factors–negative and imaging-positive asymptomatic subjects become harder to justify.”
In a linked comment, Dr Tasneem Z Naqvi, Professor of Medicine , Mayo College of Medicine and Division of Cardiology, Scottsdale, Arizona, US, adds, “This study shows that the assessment of subclinical atherosclerosis by a portable, user-friendly bedside tool is feasible in large populations and the technique of carotid ultrasound imaging and IMT assessment could be adopted by novices after an eight-hour crash course.” She concludes that the study shows that vascular ultrasound imaging technology is ripe and the previously existing barriers like poor resolution, cumbersome protocols, need for off line processing and need for expert performer no longer exist. However, she says that the study does not address whether this imaging-based approach would save more lives than the risk-based approach. “We need to ponder if treating nearly 50 per cent of the adults with statins with a risk scoring algorithm is more appropriate versus treating only those who have subclinical atherosclerosis based on comprehensive and readily available, cheap and simple screening method,” she says. The study makes a compelling argument in favour of imaging for screening, she states.
Medical Diagnostic Full-Body Thermography
Medical Diagnostic Infrared Thermal (Thermography) is a state-of-the art scan which can detect physiological abnormalities and metabolic processes occurring in the body by measuring slight temperature fluctuations. This is accomplished as the scanning device converts infrared signals emitted from the skin surface into electrical impulses that are seen in color on a monitor. This visual image or ‘thermogram’ graphically maps body temperature.
Medical Thermography’s major clinical value is in its high sensitivity that reveals changes in body tissues and organs that are caused by disease. It is particularly useful in examining the vascular, muscular, neural and skeletal systems and can contribute to the diagnosis made by the clinician. It is a life-saving procedure that can alert you and your doctor to changes in your body that may indicate early stages of breast cancer or other conditions that may be developing within the body.
For example, Thermography offers a more reliable and safe mode of early detection for breast disease than is possible through self examination, doctor examination, or mammography.

13) 3-D Full Body Bio-Electro-Interstitial Functional Scan
The unique feature of the 3D Full Body Bio-Electro-Interstitial Functional Scan is that it is the only procedure known to actually measure, function and risk factors of the body systems. The 3D Full Body Scan can detect many parameters of the human body, with an amazing 89% accuracy.
The 3D Full Body Bio-Electro-Interstitial Functional Scan biosensor is a new diagnostic aid to measure bio-impedance in interstitial fluids in the body. This technology was originally invented by German and Russian scientists, and was used in the health monitoring of the cosmonauts of the MIR space station. Subsequently a team of European scientists developed the technology over a 10 year period with trials in hospitals and clinics all over the world for use by mainstream healthcare practitioners in all healthcare fields. Now it’s FDA approved in USA.
How is the Full Body Health Assessment Performed?
The actual Body Scanning process takes about 6 minutes and is painless, non-invasive and has no known side effects. It requires the client, who is fully clothed and seated comfortably at a desk to put their hands & bare feet on electrode plates, while 2 electrodes are placed on their forehead. The client does nothing during the scan other than stay quiet and still, watching the body being scanned in real time on the screen in front of them. At the end of the initial Health Assessment, the results will be explained. Then client will receive a report by email.
Advantages for YOU in Having the Full Body Scan
The Full Body test is comprehensive, accurate, painless, non-invasive, with NO radiation scan for finding out what is really going on inside the body. This test gives correct, detailed information, so the Health Practitioner can treat patient’s health condition as successfully as possible. This complex form of bio-impedance testing can often reveal disease patterns before symptoms are manifest. It is also great to monitor the before & after treatment comparisons.
Body System Functions Assessed by the Full Body Scan Include the Following:
- • Cardiovascular System
- • Respiratory System
- • Digestive System
- • Immune System
- • Brain Function
- • Nervous System
- • Hormonal (Endocrine) System
- • Neuromuscular System
- • Urinary System
- • Reproductive System
- • Metabolic Function
The Assessment Also Analyzes:
• Body Composition including Fat Mass, Lean Mass, Muscular Mass, Intracellular Water, Extra Cellular Oxidative Stress Analysis – shows if patient may need antioxidants and which ones
• Hormonal Balance including DHEA, Testosterone (for men), Thyroid, Insulin, Cortisol, Adrenal Gland Hormone balance, TSH and Thyroid function that may reveal why patients can’t lose weight and how a stressful life style is affecting them. Why they feel tired, run down and why their immune system is comprised
• Male prostate function and libido (sex drive) levels
• Ions and Minerals such as Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, Sodium, Chloride which may show why someone has muscle aches, bone strength and much more.
• Brain chemistry and Neurotransmitter balance such as Serotonin, Dopamine and Acetylcholine levels to show why patient may be feeling moody, anxious, angry or feeling sad or emotionally down. It may also help to reveal why he/she can’t sleep or why their memory or concentration is not too good
• Biochemistry Balance such as Glucose levels and any insulin resistance that may show why the energy levels may be low and it may show why their can’t lose weight or why there is a chocolate, sugar or carbohydrate cravings.
• The body pH will show if there is a acid-alkaline balance and its maybe contributing to the health problems, Oxygen levels which may show if the brain or muscles are receiving enough oxygenated blood and the CO2 levels, Hydrogen, Bicarbonates for healthy cell metabolism.
• The Total Body Water and Weight Analysis… and much more
14) Phase Angle Bio-Marker Test
The pHase angle is defined as the relation between the two vector components of impedance: resistance and reactance and is independent of height, weight and body fat.
It may be interpreted as an indicator of water distribution between the extra- and intra-cellular spaces.
Lower pHase angles appear to be consistent with either cell death or a breakdown of the cell membrane due to acidosis. Higher pHase angles appear to be consistent large quantities of intact cell membranes and body cell mass due to alkalinity.
All living substances have a pHase angle, in fresh uncooked vegetables pHase angle can exceed 45 degrees. In cooked vegetables phase angle is zero because they are dead.
pHase Angle is a predictor of outcome and indicates the course of disease or increases as the result of optimal health based on good nutrition and consistent exercise.
As we get older our pHase angle will decrease and will be approximately 4 or less upon death. Healthy and fit adolescents may have a pHase angle greater than 10. This effect is a result of cell integrity due to aging or fermentation of the body from an acidic lifesyle and diet.
- 1. Malnutrition
- 2. Tissue acidosis or alkalosis
- 3. Cancerous condition (most types)
- 4. Abusive acidic lifestyles
- 5. Chronic alcoholism, and,
- 6. Old age (80 – 100 years).
Good fitness, health and lifestyle is the key to maintaining a healthy alkaline pHase angle.
In summary, pHase angle is an excellent indicator of disease progression and should be combined with full body Thermography, full body Ultrasound, and Live and Dried blood anaylsis for a complete picture of health and fitness and a healthy heart.
Why Live And Dried Blood Cell Analysis?
The main purpose of live and dried blood cell evaluationis to show how the body is being challenged by dietary and/or metabolic acid and indications of related symptoms. The foundational theory is that all functions of the human organism are acidic and that the ideal state of the body is alkaline by design.
It is well recognized that blood shows biological changes when the body is experiencing symptoms of sickness and disease. Empirically, after many years of research by numerous scientists, it has been discovered that certain blood profiles are associated with certain health challenges.
Dr. Young’s understandings, as in The New Biology, states that there is only one sickness and one disease, which is the over-acidification of the body.
Dr. Young also states that there can only be one remedy or treatment, which is to alkalize the body and restore an alkaline/acid balance.
Blood samples reflect the type, degree and area of acidification as well as the affects of the acidification in the body. Nutritional and lifestyle changes can then be made to alkalize and restore the alkaline/acid balance (pH balance) in the body.
The information and findings from the live and dried blood cell analysis are made in accordance with Dr. Young’s understandings, as in The New Biology. The findings will make it possible to indicate appropriate nutritional and lifestyle changes that could be made in order to restore an alkaline/acid balance to the body.
What Is Live And Dried Blood Analysis?
An alternative examination routinely used by holistic medical, osteopathic, chiropractic and naturopathic physicians, as well as other health care professionals, around the world to educate their clients about the effects of lifestyle choices on their inner terrain – cells, organs, and body -and to determine whether they are moving toward organization or disorganization, balance or imbalance, health or disease, and how fast.
Two tests show a “visual picture of your health” highlighting the impact of your past and present lifestyle choices on your “inner terrain”, cells, organs, and body – making it easy to identify the best resources and step by step strategies for fast, long-term, relief from imbalance and monitor your progress in follow up sessions.

The History of Live and Dried Blood Cell Analysis
In the mid-19th and early 20th Centuries, European scientists Dr. Antoine Béchamp and Dr. Gunther Enderlein advanced the use of the microscope, challenged the medical establishment of the day and propose new ways of interpreting what was being viewed in live blood. Other important microscopists who continued the trend include, noted physiologist Dr. Claude Bernard, Germ Theory advocate Louis Pasteur, Californian Dr. Virginia Livingston Wheeler and Canadian scientist Gaston Naessens.
In the 1920s European medical practitioners added a twist to unconventional microscopy when they began looking at dried blood samples, later called the “Bowlen Test” or “Oxidative Stress Test,” where a glass microscope slide is dabbed onto a bead of blood on the finger and allowed to air dry. The resulting patterns seen in the dried blood under a bright field microscope will reveal a characteristic “footprint” which could be seen in subjects with similar imbalances. Cases of advanced disorganization show very poor clotting, minimal fibrin formation, and many white “puddles” or proteins spread throughout the sample. A healthy control subject’s blood shows a tight, fibrin-rich, clotting pattern with no white puddles.
In the 1930s, the head of surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital, Dr. H.L. Bowlen, MD, introduced the dried blood test to America. Dr. Bowlen learned the dried test from President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s physicians, Drs. Heitlan and LaGarde. In the 1970s, one of Heitlan-LaGarde’s students, Dr. Robert Bradford of the American Biologics Hospital in Mexico, began teaching other practitioners, including world-renowned microbiologist, Dr. Robert O. Young, who also went on to study with the renowned Dr. Maria M. Bleker of Germany and other masters.
Over the past 30 years, Dr. Young has performed hundreds of thousands of these live and dried blood cell analysis and has developed a unique and expanded interpretation of blood patterns observed, based on his research into the effects of pH Imbalance on individual cells and their environment, making this educational tool more valuable than ever. The work of Dr. Bowlen was published in the 50’s and then just recently in the American Association of Cancer Research Journal, in July of 2014.
There is now well over 80 years of dry blood testing data gathered by hundreds of health practitioners worldwide.
Utilizing a high powered compound microscope, the Certified Nutritional Cellular Microscopist views a drop of blood from a fingertip, obtained with a sterile lancet, split between two slides – one for live and one for dried blood – to examine live blood cells and plasma fluid “unchanged” (unaffected by shaking, spinning, and chemical stains used in standard lab tests) alongside a sample of “clotted” blood cells to identify “patterns of disorganization” brought on by lifestyle choices and environment.
Where standard laboratory blood tests are generally quantitative – “how many cells” – live and dry cell analysis is qualitative – “the condition of cells.” While current medical science does not generally utilize “live and dry blood tests”, microscopists often use standard laboratory tests as pre and post research because there is correlative value in knowing the quantity and quality of cells.
First, the Certified Nutritional Cellular Microscopist, Phlebotomist, and pH Miracle Coach takes a drop of blood from the tip of the finger, which you will view and analyze together under a high-powered compound microscope and live on a computer screen. This will give you the opportunity to learn about the quality of your inner environment, cell structure and function, and how your lifestyle choices may impact the blood and your overall health based on The New Biology™.
“To know the cause of a disease and to understand the use of the various methods by which disease may be prevented amounts to the same thing in effect as being able to cure the malady.”
Next, the Certified Nutritional Cellular Microscopist, Phlebotomist, and pH Miracle Coach will then review the client health history, ask questions, and get feedback, which will provide insight into the client primary health concerns, past and current lifestyle choices, and the clients health goals. With these insights and based on personal experience and training in the New Biology™ and pH Miracle Principles™, recommendations for education, resources, courses of action, and support can be made to help the client develop the understanding, skills, and experience you need to make their own informed lifestyle choices about how to make progress toward the client goals.
“The Doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease“
Certified Nutritional Cellular Microscopists, Phlebotomists, and pH Miracle Coaches DO NOT make decisions for clients. This is NOT psychotherapy or treatment for any medical condition, and while the information and experience gained may help a client achieve their goals, there is never any claim or guarantee of results. The clients honest input and commitment to follow through are essential to the efficacy of any process.
“A wise man ought to realize that health is his most valuable possession and learn how to treat his illnesses by his own judgment.”
The Live and Dry Blood Cell Analysis is for helping the client determine the impact of past lifestyle choices on their present experience as well as the predictable possible future should they continue down the path they are on in their lifestyle.
Understanding Live Blood Cell Analysis
Healthy blood samples in live analysis should have red blood cells residing freely in their own space, they may be touching, but not overlapping or sticking together, and should be gently bouncing off of each other; they should be uniform in size, shape, and color. The blood serum (space surrounding the cells) should be clear, without parasitic forms, bacteria, yeast, mold, crystals, or other undesired floating masses.
Healthy Organized Live Blood Sample
Unhealthy Disorganized Live Blood Samples
Interpreting Dried Blood Analysis
Healthy blood samples in the dried blood analysis should show consistency in the intermeshed fibrin protein lines (these are the black lines visually comparable to a cobweb). The color should appear to be evenly bright red; loss of color is a representation of the level of acidosis in the body tissues. There should be an absence of white protein pools which, when present, suggest the wasting of proteins and represent the severity of cellular disorganization that has resulted from acidity settling to the weakest areas of the body, causing mycotoxic oxidative stress and inflammation or a more severe degenerative condition.
Healthy Organized Normal Dried Blood Sample
Unhealthy Disorganized Abnormal Dried Blood Sample
White protein pools observed in a dried blood sample are evaluated for size, clarity, shape, and location, each of which suggests different interpretations. Small-sized pools suggest hypersensitivities, such as allergic reactions; medium-sized pools suggest irritation/inflammation, physical/emotional stress, or physical strain; and large-sized protein pools suggest a disorganizing condition, degeneration, and significant imbalances. It is healthier for protein pools to be clear; those littered with cellular debris such as red blood cells, sialic acid crystals, and even broken tissue suggest more significant conditions. It is healthier to see round shaped pools; irregular shaped pools suggest more significant or degenerative conditions.
The location of white protein pools, designated by the layer or in which of the 8 drops of blood the pattern is found, and the ring or the location within a particular drop of blood, suggests where in the body the acidity, mycotoxic oxidative stress, and inflammation is occurring.
Sometimes emergency medical personnel save lives with emergency medicine, but this is the best that orthodox medicine can do. They fail at everything else, and this is partly because effective therapies are illegal. All approved therapies must be drug-based, which means that all of the successful nutritional therapies (to what is a very nutritional problem) are forbidden to all doctors who wish to remain licensed to practice medicine. The consequence is that it is actually illegal for any licensed doctor to cure or to successfully mitigate heart disease, cancer or diabetes since successful and natural therapies are not approved by medical regulators. If you receive the standard treatments (chemical symptom suppression) for heart conditions, or the establishment’s supposedly preventative treatments, which usually do the opposite of what they are presented to do, then you will die of either heart disease, or the treatments themselves. There is a 70% risk that you will die of complications caused by the medications, such as the development of a cancer, or liver failure, or diabetes. They call this “progress”.
Heart disease is not truly normal or natural, and it is NOT genetic. The only thing that is genetic about our cardiac catastrophe is that lifestyles, family doctors, and eating habits are inherited. At the core of the problems are ignorance and irresponsibility that span generations. In this sense, there are genetic components to heart disease, but the problem was never God’s engineering.
Heart disease takes lots of work to reverse, but it is more-or-less self-curable in most cases, regardless of what a doctor tells you.
Remember that it took years to get yourself into this state of ill-health, and it may take a long time to get yourself out of it. Do not disregard the importance of emotional and spiritual health, because these things have a major impact upon the heart, and a full recovery may not be possible otherwise. Whenever I use the term “spiritual health”, I are referring to real spirituality, such as forming a personal relationship with our Creator.
Acidic Symptoms of a Heart Attack
- Discomfort, pressure, heaviness, or pain in the left arm or chest
- Discomfort radiating to the back, jaw, throat, or arm
- Fullness, indigestion, or choking feeling (may feel like heartburn)
- Extreme weakness
- Shortness of breath
- Rapid or irregular heartbeat
Emergency Alkaline Protocol for Heart Attacks
In the event of a heart attack, do not forgo calling 911 for an ambulance. The establishment’s forté is emergency medicine, and the risk is too great to delay calling for help. While waiting for the ambulance to arrive, small amounts of these alkalizing supplements should be placed into the mouth of the victim, and allowed to absorb through the walls of his/her cheeks:
- Magnesium chloride
Americans need not be concerned with legalities when trying to employ these methods. Every State in America has a Good Samaritan law, which provides special legal protection to those who make a good faith effort to save a life!
My hope after you read this article is that you will do your own research and find out for yourself as I have that there is a Self-Care natural health and wellness protocol for a Self-Cure for Heart Disease!
