Blood is the lifestream of the body, affecting every cell and system we possess. The bloodstream is a conglomeration of many different elements, each working in a specific way to keep us alive. The first embryonal blood appears in small patches, which hollow out, fill with fluid, and become lined with cells that multiply and then become detached and float free. The cytoplasm of the floating cells manufactures hemoglobin, and so they turn red. The hollowed-out patches become tubular and link up to make a circuit. Part of the circuit becomes contractile. In the third week of a human pregnancy there is the first flutter of a beating heart. Blood begins to move. Fishes, frogs and reptiles have red cells, which remain nucleated. Non-nucleated cells cannot divide to form daughter cells, because the inherited instructions for cell formation and continuity are in the nucleus. But the circulating nucleated red cells in these animals can divide and do so. In a human embryo, it is at first the same as in a fish, frog or lizard, but soon some red cells without nuclei begin to appeara few at six weeks, one-tenth of the total at eight weeks. In an eleven-week human embryo all the circulating red cells are being produced in non-nucleated form from a fixed lining layer of immature dividing nucleated cells, which make hemoglobin as they grow, extrude their nuclei, and drift off as soon as they mature. All mammals have red cells of this kind. Such cells have become very highly specialized, mere bags of hemoglobin, and have lost all capacity for multiplication by cell division. In a certain sense their “maturation” is not so much a growing-up as a kind of degeneration. A useful term for it is differentiationthey are becoming different from any other type of cell.
During the third month of human fetal life, the blood-cell-producing tissue has become concentrated in the blood spaces of the deep-set liver, spleen and kidney, through which the circulation moves sluggishly. Up to this time there are only a few scavenging white cells in the circulation. These migrate into the blood from the general solid parts of the embryo to take an occasional ride around. The lymphocytes move in from the surface lining of the fishy gill clefts, which are still present in the embryo at this stage. In the fifth month, human blood formation moves to the bone marrow. A hollow rod is stronger than a solid one of equal diameter. And so, the prime reason for the hollowness of long bones is to give maximum skeletonic support with minimum weight. Nevertheless the hollows themselves are useful: they accommodate the marrowbloody jellyin a rigid box. It is the perfect biological situation for so delicate a structure as a soft slush of multiplying cells, which must not drift off into the passing blood until they are fully formed. Colonies of blood cells persisting in organs like the kidney, liver or spleen, capable of being compressed by the movements of the rest of the body, could result in primitive cells being cast off before they were ready.
There are three main types of cells in the bloodstream. Red blood cells are the most numerous, making up about 40% of the total blood volume. White blood cells and platelets make up about 5% by volume. The remaining half of the blood system is composed of plasma, a sticky substance made up of 95% water. The remaining 5% of plasma is composed of the many substances dissolved in the water. These include nutrients, proteins, hormones, and waste products.
Nutrients are the substances needed by the body’s tissues to sustain their normal function and growth. The principal nutrients are sugars, fats, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. All these are dissolved within the plasma and transported to each cell within the body. The primary proteins in the plasma serve either as part of the clotting mechanism, as part of the immune system, or as transporters for nutrients or hormones. Hormones are chemicals used to regulate many of the body’s functions. They are produced in the endocrine glands and then released into the bloodstream to their various target organs elsewhere in the body.
When red-cell formation becomes established in the bone marrow of the fetus, the cells that give rise to the phagocytic (scavenging) white blood cells move in too, and their proportion increases. Soon, the white-cell-forming cells overtake the red-cell-forming cells until there are three or four times as many. Then these proportions are maintained, more or less, throughout healthy adult life. By the time a baby is born, the cellular marrow of the bones occupies a total volume equal to that of the liver. The average adult human body has about ten pints of circulating blood: about a pint for every 15 pounds. Blood-cell numbers are usually expressed as the number per cubic millimeter of blood. A cubic millimeter is an imaginary small box with each side as long as the diameter of the head of a pin. In this volume there are usually between four and six million red blood cells. A single human red cell is small: smaller than most other cells. It takes 150 of them, with their broadest diameters touching, to straddle the head of the pin. This makes them seem very small and very numerous, yet if you lived in the minute world of plasma macromolecules they would be like enormous blundering bags of jelly and iron, drifting like heavy balloons in soup, with gases and chemicals fizzing and wheezing in and out of their surface membranes. There are about 25 million million of them in each human body. Each one lasts for 120 days before being selectively destroyed in the spleen.
This means that every second about three million of them are being removed and replaced! Each one contains about 300 million hemoglobin molecules. Each of the 300 million hemoglobin molecules in each of your red cells is able to catch and carry four molecules of oxygen, which adds up to more than 1,000 million oxygen molecules picked up per cell as it circulates through your lungs. As you sit reading this, each beat of your heart is sending more than 500,000,000,000,000,000,000 of hemoglobin-bound oxygen molecules out to your body. It seems a lot. But if your breathing should stop, which would soon prevent oxygen molecules being taken up in the lungs, you will find that you have only three or four minutes’ supply of oxygen within your to maintain a hard-living organ like your brain.
In fact, if the carotid artery in your neck is compressed, blocking the blood supply to the brain, you will go unconscious within seconds. Because, clever and hemoglobinized though you may be, your blood can still carry about eight times as much food like sugar or amino-acids as it can oxygen, and cells need equal quantities of these for ordinary survival. Oxygen starvation is always nearer than any other kind.
White cells are up to twice the size of red cells and there are fewer of them in the circulating blood, about 5,000 to 10,000 per cubic millimeter. The life span of an ordinary phagocytic white cell is probably a matter of hours, compared with the red cells’ four months, and so it needs to be replaced more often. This, together with the fact that many white cells do not appear in blood-counts because they are wandering in spaces outside the bloodstream, helps to explain why there is quantitatively more white-cell-forming than red-cell-forming tissue in the marrow. But it is mainly the fast-moving polymorphonuclear white cells, which grow there. The slower-moving mononuclear ones grow mainly in other parts of the scavenging system of the body, as well as in the spleen. Lymphocytes grow in the bone marrow, though at a later stage, influenced by the thymus gland, they may develop further in the lymph nodes, in the tonsils and adenoids, in the wall of the gut and in areas of chronic inflammation.
There is one other formed structure in the circulating bloodthe platelet. Platelets are made in the bone marrow from the frilly edges of giant cells: fragments are shed into the flowing blood like jelly pushed through a wire sieve into a torrent. The normal number of platelets is between 150,000 and 500,000 per cubic millimeter, and they are very smallabout one-tenth to one-fifth the diameter of a red cell.
Humans are very diverse. A common convention is that the normal range covers 95% of healthy people. Then one person in twenty walking the streets and feeling healthy will be abnormal by definition. Indeed, there is such natural variation among all humans that it is very difficult to define precisely the altered state one calls disease. For instance, the blood-cell count per cubic millimeter can vary, not always because the total number of cells has changed, but according to the concentration of the circulating blood. If water moves from the tissues into the circulation, the total blood volume is increased and the red-cell count per cubic millimeter falls. Small variations caused by this kind of change occur daily. Nevertheless a red-cell count below four million and above six million per cubic millimeter is an indication that something unusual and probably unhealthy is happening.
The white cells are part of our mobile defense system, and they increase in numbers when stimulated by the entry of foreign material. The numbers of white cells in the human blood will fluctuate as they respond to one challenge after another, and as they move to and from the bloodstream and the tissues. Small variations will occur even with a walk in the cold or after a meal of cooked food, and in most people the white-cell count increases every afternoon, relating to the acupuncture meridian clock, based on the circadian rhythm of the planet’s rotation within its magnetosphere. The normal white count in healthy people is given a wide rangefrom 4,000 to 11,000 per cubic millimeter, though it does not ordinarily vary as much as this in one individual. When foreign organisms enter the body and multiply, their poisons activate the white-cell-forming tissue in the bone marrow, making it divide rapidly, and a stream of new white cells enters the bloodstream. Lack of oxygen is the condition that results in extra red cells being produced. Certain parts of the body (kidneys for one), on not receiving their accustomed amount of oxygen from the blood, release a soluble substance which is carried in the bloodstream to the bone marrow and stimulates more activity in the red-cell-producing tissues. This means more circulating red cells and therefore more hemoglobin to catch and carry oxygen. Consequently, people living in high mountain villages, where the oxygen is thin, have greater red-cell counts than their cousins in the valleys far below. Poor lung function leading to inadequate oxygenation of the blood in the lungs may have the same effect.
The hemoglobin in the red cells can readily be measured, and in healthy people, the amount is simply related to the number of red cells present, because each one is packed tight with it. But in anemic people, hemoglobin may be reduced disproportionately if the blood cells are short of the means to make it. Iron is the essential ingredient, a physiologically violent metal which the body desperately needs, hoards, binds, uses over and over again, but dare not have too much of. Mercury (dental fillings), like carbon monoxide, will also preferentially saturate the hemoglobin oxygen bonding sites and lower the available oxygen available to the tissues, creating a tissue hypoxia even though the hematocrit and hemoglobin are “normal.” Mercury also causes the kidney to eliminate porphorin, a precursor to heme, which the body makes hemoglobin out of. The body also makes ATP (the energy currency of the cells) out of porphorin, and the resulting elimination causes a loss of energy (chronic fatigue syndrome). When hemoglobin molecules are eventually released from a worn-out red cell, the iron is picked out of them.
Protein is also removed. What remain are still pigments, but no longer red. They eventually turn yellow, after which they are discharged through the liver in the bile. The color changes are easily seen in a black eye. Small blood vessels are nipped and broken. Blood streams into the tissue spaces, forming a “bruise.” The red cells quickly lose their oxygen to the surrounding tissues. Their hemoglobin consequently turns deep blue, and this color is seen through the skin. After a day or two, wandering scavenger cells begin to pick up and digest some of the displaced red cells, which have by now been so long out of circulation that their surfaces have degenerated and the scavengers can identify them as fair game. The iron is removed from the hemoglobin and the remaining molecule is yellow. Yellow and blue together make green. A day or two more and the blue fades, so that the green turns to yellow. This suffuses the skin for a while, and then fades through jaundiced peach as normal pink returns. Any bruise or other kind of bleeding under the skin goes through the same phases.
A sample of blood is easily obtained by putting a hollow needle, attached to a syringe, into a vein that has been made to swell with blood by a light tourniquet, which obstructs it between the sampling point and the heart. Arterial blood can also be taken, but without any tourniquet because the pressure inside is naturally high enough to keep the vessel tightly filled. In infants, whose veins and arteries are very small, blood can be taken from the large venous pool of blood at the top of the head by putting a needle between the small skull-plates, which have not yet fused together. There are many hundreds of ways in which blood can be examined. The hematologist looks at the cells, the serologist at the antibodies, the clinical chemist at the molecules, the bacteriologist at the germs that may be in it. Their methods vary. In order to count its cells and platelets, freshly drawn blood is quickly mixed with substances, which prevent it from clotting. Then it is carefully diluted in a measuring-tube, so that the cells become separated from one another sufficiently to be seen individually under the microscope; in untreated blood they would pack so thickly together as to look like a granular red mass.
The diluted sample is then run under a slit-like space between two horizontal pieces of flat glass. The exact depth of this slit-space is known. The base of the flat compartment is already etched with squares in a tartan pattern. The exact measurements of these squares are also known, and so their area multiplied by the depth of the space will give a known volume. By using a microscope one can count the number of cells in the squares and thus in known volumes, and by allowing for the dilution, one can then calculate how many there must have been in the original blood sample. Although there is nothing complicated about this, it takes time doing it by eye. Big laboratories have therefore adopted electronic methods, where cells are counted at remarkable speeds (thousands per second) as they flow past microscopic electrical “eyes” or “feelers.” Hemoglobin pigment, being colored, can be matched against colored-glass standards of known density. This can be done by eye, but photoelectric techniques are common now.
Apart from counting the blood cells, hematologists also take a look at their shapes and appearances. Red cells can be measured in volume and diameter, and their shapes assessed by the eye. But white cells, having no hemoglobin, are colorless and must be artificially stained for their details to reveal themselves. The art of such staining arose in the nineteenth century in Germany. Before being stained, wet blood is spread as a thin film which quickly dries on a flat glass slide. The film is made thin enough for the cells to be strewn out separately from one another in the layer of plasma. As the water evaporates from the plasma, the protein sets like glue, holding the cells firm and flat against the glass. Then the slide is heated or put into strong alcohol, which alters the proteins of other the plasma and the cells so that they become fixed; this means that from then on they will not dissolve or float away if put into a water solution again. Fixation of the blood film is important because watery preparations of dyes may be used for staining. A commonly used staining method turns the nucleus of the cell blue and the rest pink. Stained in this way the differences between polymorphonuclear, mononuclear and lymphocytic cells become obvious, and the stainable properties of granules in certain of their cytoplasms allow further categories to be made. Then all types can be counted an expressed as percentages of each kind present, and can be related to the total white cells counted in a liquid blood-sample at the same time. This shows whether each cell type is present in the blood in absolutely abnormal numbers, which is not necessarily indicated by their relative percentages in the dried film.
Immaturity of the circulating white cells can be deduced from the stained appearances of their nuclei. The presence of immature white cells in the blood shows that they are being released prematurely from the marrow. But, if immature nucleated red cells appear in the human bloodstream this commonly indicates a major disturbance in the bone marrow. Very young, but not immature red cells just released into the circulation have a stainable network or reticulum indicating the recent presence of a nucleus. These are reticulocytes and their presence indicates an abnormally high rate of red-cell production by the marrow. Samples of bone marrow can be obtained almost as easily as blood. A needle is put into the breastbone or another hollow bone that lies close under the skin surface and the marrow, which has a pasty consistency, is drawn into a syringe. A stained film of bone marrow normally shows primitive red and white cells in all stages of development.
The maturation of a red cell has three main features: it starts large and becomes smaller; the nucleus becomes dense and disappears; and hemoglobin appears in the cytoplasm. By centrifuging a given amount of blood until all its cells are packed tightly together at the bottom of a straight glass tube so that one can measure the proportion of the whole packed cell volume (normally it is just less than half); by treating unfixed living cells with colored chemicals that actually take part in the life activities inside the cells and thus visibly indicate their condition (cytochemistry or histochemistry); by putting red cells into various weak solutions of salt in order to measure the extent to which they can withstand osmotic swelling and bursting (osmotic fragility testing); by chemically or biologically measuring the amounts of bile pigments, iron, proteins, enzymes and vitamins in the plasma; by looking for abnormal pigmented breakdown-products of hemoglobin with a spectroscope; by separating protein molecules on a wet paper strip or column of clay, along which an electric current may be flowing (chromatography and electrophoresis); and by estimating the levels of the known clotting “factors.”
Perhaps the most common test of all is the blood sedimentation rate. The sedimentation test consists simply in watching a column of blood, which has been prevented from clotting, standing in a vertical tube. The red cells settle down to the bottom. The faster they settle, the sicker the patient (with few exceptions as in pregnancy). The explanation is that normal red cells are like coin-shaped flakes of jelly, and are slightly heavier than the plasma in which they are suspended. When blood stands still, they will very gently settle to the lowest part of their container. They settle slowly because each individual one falls like a light disc in syrup, and there is maximum resistance to its fall because of its large surface area.
In healthy blood, all the red cells carry a similar small negative electric charge. Bodies with the same electric charge repel, and so the cells tend to remain apart from one another. These charges on the red cells can be weakened or neutralized by abnormal protein becoming stuck to the cell surfaces, or by the appearance in the blood plasma of an excess of large-molecule proteins either deriving from tissue breakdown somewhere in the body, incomplete protein digestion with leaky-gut syndrome, or the result of an infection and the release of foreign material into the bloodstream. When this happens, the red cells in non-flowing blood tend to stick together by their maximum-contact surfaces, which means that they become arranged like piles of coins or dinner platescalled rouleaux by the hematologist. These adhering collections offer less surface resistance when falling through the plasma, and therefore in the test they settle more quickly. Rapid sedimentation accompanies all diseases that involve tissue breakdown or the entry of foreign or abnormal proteins into the blood. This will include a wide variety of chronic inflammations, toxic infections, operations, fractures, blockages of blood vessels, and disorders of the cell system, which normally manufactures the plasma proteins.
The sealing mechanism is partly an arrangement whereby after a few minutes the living ends of our blood vessels go into a contractile spasm which greatly reduces or stops the leak, and partly the result of blood-clotting. The human blood-clotting systema series of chemical triggers, each of which has to be pulled before the next one can work, with neutralizers set aroundcan be likened to a widely dispersed task force which has a dangerous job to do. It works with great rapidity and effectiveness, but only in the precise situations where it is required. A complex system of multiple keys, short-lived primers, essential sequences, dependent cascades and widespread neutralizers, ensures that duties are not exceeded. A clot consists of platelets and blood cells, tangled in a fibrous jelly produced by the precipitation of a long-molecule protein (fibrinogen), which is normally dissolved in the plasma. Fibrinogen becomes congealed when an enzyme (thrombin) splits, or ‘digests,’ little pieces of the ends of its molecules, exposing parts, which then click together into straggling rafts and bundles (fibrin). The clot shrinks, and the plasma in it oozes out and is called serum. Serum is therefore plasma that has lost its fibrinogen because of clotting. Thrombin cannot ordinarily be present in active form in the circulating blood because this would immediately convert all the fibrinogen into fibrin and clot up all the vessels. So thrombin circulates in an inactive form, prothrombin. Prothrombin is activated to thrombin by plasma enzymatic activity (prothrombinase) which splits a piece off it, exposing active parts, just as thrombin does with fibrinogen. Prothrombinase activity can be generated by several different agencies.
Shed blood immediately comes in contact with tissues and surfaces quite different from the natural linings of the blood vessels. Blood platelets immediately stick to the unfamiliar coverings of broken or strange cells outside the vessels, and certain other soluble surface-sensitive substances in the plasma are at the same time altered. These stimulate the platelets to burst and liberate material that combines with at least two other soluble plasma proteins to become prothrombinase. There are other factors in the plasma that accelerate the clotting process by shortening the time required for activation of thrombin from plasma constituents. The presence of dissolved calcium is essential for most of these stages in the clotting reaction. During clotting, some of the substances, which take part, seem to be used up. Others are steadily inactivated by specific natural anti-clotting factors. The term factor is used because it is not very clear what many of them actually are in chemical or molecular terms. The only visible part of the clotting reaction in a test tube is the appearing of the fibrin clot. Blood-clotting research has been slow because the basic chemistry of nearly all stages of the blood-clotting reaction is not yet understood, and no relevant chemical color reactions have been discovered which would allow the investigations to be accurately adapted to photometric instruments in any simple way.
Although all mammal blood looks alike, in fact they are very varied. Human bloods vary between individualswith one exception of identical twins, originating from the same fertilized egg-cell, whose bloods are perfectly alike. In the old days, surgeons, physicians, apothecaries and alchemists thought of blood as a substance, which was materially the same whether it flowed under fur, feather, skin or scale. Blood was blood, one of the basic humors of life; it was red, and it clotted. It was only when the sciences of physics and chemistry produced ideas about the disposition of discrete molecules, and the linkages between them, that our present knowledge began to be developed. Then scientists could begin to guess at the great variability of personal patterns that are possible between the fleshes or between the bloods of even closely related individuals, provided they have arisen as a result of separate egg-cell fertilizations.
At the beginning of the twentieth-century, Landsteiner discovered the first blood groups. Taking humans at random and in general, he found that their serums and red cells, when mixed, would react as though there were two antigenic substances, which can (but need not) be present upon the surfaces of the cells. These two substances, which are specific molecular patterns, came to be called A and B.
According to whether people had one or the other, or both or neither, so were the four groups determined and named A, B, AB and O. Two natural antibodies were found to occur: anti-A and anti-B. Anti-A would agglutinate (stick together) A cells and AB cells, anti-B would agglutinate B cells and AB cells, while neither would agglutinate O cells. No person ordinarily forms antibodies which will agglutinate cells of his own type, nor has anyone an anti-O, for O is not antigenic. On the other hand, a group O individual who has passed the infant stage always has both anti-A and anti-B in his serum, a group A always has anti-B, a group B has anti-A and a group AB has neither. Although group O was named because it lacked both A and B substances, this does not mean there is nothing there. O, A and B are all single-gene-determined red-cell substances belonging to the ABO system. But the genetic make-up of a person is derived from each parent equally, so everyone has two ABO blood-group characters. A person who belongs to group AB has inherited the two detectable ABO blood-group substances, but a person who is group O must have inherited neither of them, so it can be negatively inferred that he must have a double dose of the undetectable O substance.
But someone whose red cells react with anti-A only, or with anti-B only, could be either AA or AO, on the one hand, or BB or BO, on the other hand, and ordinary serum testing (grouping) will not resolve which. After Landsteiner it became clear that if blood were to be taken from one human and transfused into another, incompatible red cells should not be used. They would immediately absorb large quantities of the natural blood-group antibody already present in the serum of the recipient, and there would be a risk of a hemolytic transfusion reaction with alarming or fatal effects. Some men’s bloods were other men’s poisons. Bloods of people of the same group could perhaps be safely interchanged, and this became a working rule. Because neither anti-A nor anti-B had any effect on group O red cells, people of this group came to be in great demand as universal donors, for it looked as though hemolytic disasters could never occur when their blood was used. On the other hand, it seemed that the AB group, who were unable to form antibodies against the antigens A or B, because these were part of their immunologic selves, could receive blood without risk from their own or any other groups; they were called universal recipients.
The American medical establishment does not look at live blood. Their practice of staining blood with chemicals kills it. It also kills the ability to really “see” what is going on. But in looking at live blood, you can clearly “see” that there are bacteria, microorganisms and parasites that not only are in the blood, but that over time can grow and can change their shapes. Research has proven that they can become pathogenic (disease producing). This ability of microorganisms to change is the concept of pleomorphism discussed in The Germ Theory of Disease Causation. Understanding this concept is essential to the understanding of cancer and its cure, and the cure of many other diseases.
Other researchers have continued along the path blazed by Enderlein and have come to similar findings. Gaston Naessens discovered the protit and watched its life cycle. He calls the protit a “somatid.” Naessens believes this protit/somatid predates DNA and carries on genetic activity. It is the first thing that condenses from light energy, and is the link between light and matter.
Virginia Livingston-Wheeler also researched the protit but called it “progenitor cryptocides.” Progenitor, meaning it existed through millennia, and cryptocides being a cellular killer - essentially the ancestral hidden killer, cancer. Like Naessens, Livingston did some excellent cancer research. Some of her best research was done along with two other women, Eleanor Alexander-Jackson and Irene Diller. They referred to this microbe as the cancer microbe. But in truth it is much more than that.
From all indications, Enderlein laid out some of the best and most original findings and others took his lead and furthered the research. Unfortunately, many scientists work in isolation and for one reason or another a lot of information known by one is unknown by the others. Because information is not shared, or given hierarchical credit, many who follow are left in the dark and without the full picture.
Remember that blood is under pH control. Ideally it has a pH in a narrow range around 7.3, which is slightly alkaline. pH around 7.3 is the perfect environment in which the protit lives in harmony with the body. But when blood pH is disturbed and is shifted out of that narrow range, these tiny microorganisms can no longer live. In order to survive, they will change to a form which can survive. It is these new forms that can become aggressive, parasitic and pathogenic agents within the blood. Dr. Enderlein contended there are thousands of forms and many of these are able to overcome the body’s defense mechanisms, causing multiple disease situations.
Darkfield microscopic studies conducted by Dr. Rudolph Alsleben and Dr. Kurt Donsbach clearly illustrated the proliferation of mutated microorganisms in the blood of their sick patients. What they observed was the dance of these microbes in their pathogenic rage. They called it the ‘kleptic microbe’. Examining their patients live blood revealed many of these microbes darting to and fro in the blood plasma. The more ill the patient, the more microbes observed. The sickest patients had swarming hordes of these parasitic mutated microorganisms within the blood, causing great stress to their immune systems. The doctors learned that cleaning the blood of these kleptic microbes allowed the rejuvenation of the immune system to progress in an orderly and rapid fashion.
Curious scientists who spend a lot of time in the laboratory looking at live blood under the microscope often start to wonder about the pleomorphic concept. When they see the changes in the blood taking place and correlate it with the progression of the disease process, many begin to see a pattern unfolding that prompts them to state that. The over-acidification of the body, caused by an inverted way of eating and living, causes a proliferation of the “fungus among us” which debilitates the body and, if not corrected, will ultimately cause our demise.
Looked at in this light it could be said that all illness is but this one constitutional disease, the result is mycotoxicoses--toxicity caused by mycotic infection, or in other words, by yeast and fungus infection. These are the great decomposers of living and dead bodies. From ashes to ashes and dust to dust, this is nature’s decomposing mechanism at work. Fascinating isn’t it? If you begin to understand this concept, you will begin to understand a prime reason why we get sick and how we get sick, and you will realize that much of modern medicine is looking under the wrong stones for answers to many disease questions.
For years now, medicine has considered blood to be a sterile environment. But they’re wrong. Unfortunately, dead wrong for some of their patients. Blood is not a sterile environment, nor is it a static environment. That environment can change (most notably through diet) and microorganisms in the blood can evolve and change too. The fact is, we can see this type of evolution and change going on throughout all of nature. If you leave a bowl of milk out on the kitchen table for a few days without refrigeration, it will turn sour fairly quickly. Did it turn sour because there was an outside germ that got into the milk? No, it turned sour because tiny microbes already in the milk changed their form to adapt to a changed environment.
Peering into the microscope and looking at live blood, we see cause and effect. When you’re not feeling well, your blood doesn’t look good. Often, the worse you feel, the worse it looks. When you get better, the blood also gets looking better. Simple correlation. Make the blood look better, you’ll feel better. Clean the blood, clean your health. But something else is going on. When you feel better, often your attitude is also better. Your state of mental health is closely aligned with your state of physical health. Change physical health, and you’ll often impact mental health. The reverse also holds; change the mental, and you’ll change the physical. Where is it often reflected? In the blood.
Change your blood, and you’ll change your consciousness. Change your consciousness, and you’ll change your blood.
Our blood holds elementsthe vibrational imprintof who we are. It contains the signature of our soul. As the bible says, “The Life is in the Blood.” Stories abound that correlate these truths. In Australia, stories are told of the aboriginal people donating blood as urban life encroached upon their existence. When normal white folk would get this blood during a transfusion, some have been known to wake up in the middle of the night sweating and grabbing the sides of their beds as they experienced night dreams beyond any they’ve ever had before. Similar stories are told of individuals who have had organ transplants. Having never liked certain foods, or doing certain things, or being proficient at specific tasks, they would suddenly find themselves after the transplant with cravings for food they hate and abilities they never before possessed.
The tissues of the body are fed by blood, which contains the vibrational imprint of who we are. Get someone else’s blood or other organ tissue, and you have to assimilate their imprint and remake it your own. Like a giant human organic tape recorder, over time you erase their message with your own. When people have problems with transfusions and organ transplants, part of the problem lies in the vibrational makeup of both the donor and recipient.
In time, modern medicine may get around to understanding this, and they will discover how to electromagnetically and/or in other ways erase the donor’s imprint on blood and organ tissue. About that time maybe they’ll also understand more about the microbial forms in the blood and how blood may need to be assessed and treated at our blood banks.
As you get deeper into this work and research its topics, a new way of looking at health will undoubtedly begin to unfold for you. Along the way, as you hear anecdotal stories of seemingly miracle cures using these ideas, you may begin to think of the placebo effect. Scientists have studied the power of the placebo and have seen explicitly that you can make it so, if you think it so.
Thoughts are things, thoughts have power. You are what you think. A thought is a vibration of your mental self, behind which lies, who you really are; soul. And that is where the state of your health really begins. And it pushes down from there. It is a process that unfolds very simply, very beautifully. The state of your individual health is spiritually/vibrationally induced, chemically/electrically driven, and biologically carried out.
The biological aspect is the pleomorphic behavior of “the wiggly things” in the blood. These are the microbial elemental forms that exist in your blood and will shape themselves according to your metabolic balance. Their forms, and ultimately their function, are going to be driven and decided by the environment in which they live, and which you have provided through your eating, thinking, and living.
Whatever your current metabolic condition, the internal microbes or “bugs” will co-exist with you and will be in perfect balance (for them), whatever the environment you provide. Unfortunately, that can be very unbalancing for you. To get healthy, you must balance your internal environment, and unbalance the bugs.
When the body is toxic, the bloodstream is toxic, the lymphatic system is toxic, thus the toxins circulate throughout the body. Most sickness starts from toxins within the body. When these toxins circulate through the blood, it infects the whole body. This weakens every organ and system.The cleansing process of the blood is carried out by the body’s detoxification system. Without such a system, the body would become toxic and unable to support itself. Three main examples of the body’s detoxification system are the respiratory, defacatory, and urinary systems. The respiratory system expels wastes in the form of carbon dioxide which is exhaled from the lungs. Solid organic wastes and dead blood cells are expunged by the defecatory system, and the remaining waste products, transported by plasma, are expelled by the urinary system.
The main waste product in plasma is urea which is transported to the kidneys to be eliminated. The kidneys receive their blood supply directly from the aorta through the renal arteries. These arteries branch off many times in the kidneys, forming small capillary tufts called glomeruli. There are over one million glomeruli in the kidneys, combining as the filtering system for cleaning the blood. Blood cells and big molecules are kept within the glomeruli, but small molecules and water pass through their walls. Over 140 liters of fluid pass out of the glomeruli each day, back through the renal tubules, where 99% of it is reabsorbed back into the blood. At the end of the tubules, the waste products, excess salt, and some of the water remain unabsorbed. These form urine which drains down the ureters and into the bladder.
Both old blood cells and waste products in the body are toxic. It is essential that the detoxification system works properly. As old blood cells die and are destroyed by the various transactions in the body, they must be removed. If the dead cells and other organic waste are not removed from the blood stream, create a homeostatic imbalance in the body. If this occurs, it can affect one’s health.
Homeostasis (homeo = same; stasis = standing still) is defined as balance and harmony within the body. It is the condition created when each cell in the body functions in an internal environment which remains within certain physiological limits. Homeostasis can be achieved when: (1) the body has the proper amounts of gases, nutrients, ions, and water; (2) maintains the optimal internal temperature and; (3) has an optimal volume for the health of cells. When homeostasis is disturbed, health may be affected.
For the complex operation of the body, the blood requires a constant source of nutrients. Nutrients are essential for the feeding of tissues of the body and are necessary to sustain its intricate functions as it constantly reproduces new cells. Each cell requires nutrients for its formation and specific function and when each cell within the body functions properly, homeostasis is achieved.
Some examples of essential nutrients in the blood and body’s cleansing process are:
Zinc is considered a trace element because the body requires only small amounts to function. Zinc functions mainly as an essential constituent of cell enzyme systems. There are perhaps two dozen known zinc metalloenzymes that control fundamental metabolic processes involving key nutrients. These oxidoreductase and transferase enzymes include alcohol dehydrogenase, carbonic anhydrase, lactate dehydrogenase, glutamate dehydrogenase, alkaline phosphatase, superoxide dismutase, and thymidine kinase. Though the body requires only small amounts of zinc, inadequate levels can affect proper detoxification. One of these important enzymes, carbonic anhydrase, of which zinc is an integral part, acts as a carbon dioxide carrier, especially in red blood cells, and catalyzes the reaction. It takes carbon dioxide from cells and delivers it to the lungs for expulsion, and also functions in the renal tubule cells. Superoxide dismutase continuously removes the highly reactive superoxide radical, protecting cells against dangerous levels of superoxide. Alcohol dehydrogenase changes alcohol to aldehyde, the first step in the metabolism of alcohols by the liver.
Manganese is necessary for the function of glutathione synthetase, an enzyme needed for the body to make the detox conjugator glutathione from glycine. Glutathione functions in various redox reactions: (1) in the destruction of peroxides and free radicals, (2) as a cofactor for enzymes, and (3) in the detoxification of harmful compounds. Glutathione also functions in the transport of amino acids across cell membranes. Manganese is also necessary for the proper utilization of iron. Superoxide dismutase is also a manganese-containing metalloenzyme, catalyzing the breakdown of superoxide free radicals thereby protecting the cells against peroxidative damage.
Iron is an element essential to life. It is essential in its role in the transportation of oxygen in the body and permits cellular respiration to occur.
Molybdenum is an essential trace mineral that functions as an enzyme cofactor. Certain molybdenum metalloenzymes oxidize and detoxify various compounds that play a role in uric acid metabolism and sulfate toxicity.
