The Evolutionary Health Plan

Basically, the Evolutionary Health Plan (EHP) consists of a number of ‘suggestions’ that are presented in a bullet point list:

.

•   Those suggestions that are more or less essential to the EHP working,
◦   Those suggestions that are not essential to the EHP working, but are nonetheless highly recommended.

.

.

Each suggestion supports an action or method, intended to create an environment more expected by our cells’ three and a half thousand million years’ evolutionary experience. So without further ado, here they are:

 Ground yourself to the Earth, as much as humanely possible. 24/7 is good; more than 40 minutes continuous disconnection will deplete the body’s electron supply

Every time the human body is connected to ground a large amount of electrons flow from the Earth, which can be viewed as an infinite source/sink of electrons. Research has shown that up to one micro amp of current may enter a body that is connected to ground via a one Mega ohm resistor.[1] So when 1 uA flows into the body, this equates to 62 Terra (million million) electrons per second. These electrons speed around the body surface, looking for a way in. Meridian points and mucous membranes are the most likely points of entry, since they have a lower resistance. 

.

Why is earthing important? Important may be an understatement, given that the electrons are utilised in a number of vital bodily processes that can be broadly characterised as providing: an antioxidant effect; electrical charge; a reference potential. These are discussed in more detail below: .

.

As Antioxidants

But not just any old antioxidants! In fact, the oxidative process has nothing specifically to do with oxygen, it merely means that negative charge is taken, for instance when an electron is ripped from a molecule. A good example of an oxidative process is a fire, which rips electronegative atoms from the burning material. This same atom-transfer process is seen in organic oxidation reactions, therefore a fire might be a good analogy for the ‘pathogenic’ oxidisation processes in the body; otherwise known as inflammation. The immune cells use so-called oxidative bursts to blast pathogens and damaged cells among other things. 


.

The problem is that the immune cells firing the bursts have no way to protect all the surrounding healthy cells, which might in turn become oxidised. If the damage to the surrounding tissue is too intense, then an Inflammatory Barrier is constructed around the inflamed area. This barrier consists only of semiconducting proteins, and will ideally block the toxins from escaping; but it is not a one-way street, and antioxidants are also prevented from reaching the inflammation resulting in a long-term, or ‘smouldering’, inflammation. 
.


.

Another problem is that the barriers often leak a little, and the result can potentially damage any organ in the body, regardless of distance to the original inflammation. Atherosclerotic plaque is one example of this type of process; the necrotic core, which contains oxidised lipids and other inflammatory material, is covered by a Fibrous Cap. Unfortunately, microscopic amounts of inflammatory materials will almost certainly escape from the necrotic core, and once in the bloodstream could cause damage elsewhere. 
.


.

There is also the possibility that at some future point, the fibrous cap will break, and end up blocking vessels in the heart, brain or other sensitive area. Earth electrons are the only antioxidants that can penetrate the fibrous cap, to deal with the underlying inflammation.
.


.

The chemical antioxidant supplies an electron(s) to the oxidised molecule, thereby acting as a reducing agent and restoring the molecule to health. The chemical based antioxidant, for example turmeric, blueberries or vitamin C, though, can present five potential problems.

.

1.Once the antioxidant has delivered its electron(s), it becomes by definition an oxidising agent itself, and could potentially go on to rip an electron from a healthy cell or other biological structure. A few chemical antioxidants exist, such as astaxanthin, that do not become oxidisers.

.

2.Regardless, the chemical antioxidant must then be disposed of by the body, further taxing the metabolism.

.

3.Importantly, the chemical antioxidant cannot easily penetrate an inflammatory barrier, and maybe other parts of the body. For example, many molecules cannot pass unhindered through the blood-brain barrier, or the blood-retinal barrier come to that.

.

4.The food must first be digested, which takes time and energy.

.

5.Chemical antioxidants might only be able to reduce certain types of oxidative processes, for example uric acid, a ubiquitous bloodstream antioxidant, cannot reduce oxidation caused by reactive oxygen species.

.

A body in constant contact with the ground would not need chemical antioxidants to the same degree, since it would receive an unlimited supply of raw, extremely mobile, electrons. And the really unbelievable part, is that these electrons can instantaneously get anywhere in the body, including into any cell and its accompanying DNA, where they can help repair oxidative damage. As previously stated, the earth electrons can easily penetrate Inflammatory Barriers; the body has no other way to achieve this.

.

Studies have shown a marked reduction in inflammatory markers, in particular a study investigating how grounding effects delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) markers and symptoms [2]. Eight healthy volunteers performed exercises designed to cause DOMS. They were then split into two groups, one group was connected to ground at 17.40 on each of the 4 days the study lasted, the other was sham grounded. 

It is clear that grounding, as opposed to many other holistic treatment methods, is well suited to masked studies since there is no physical way that a person can know whether they have been connected to ground or not. As shown in Figure 1, the population of immune response cells are decreased considerably in the grounded subjects, suggesting that grounding helps resolve the muscular damage caused by excess strain at a much faster rate.

.

Figure 1 – Comparison of White Blood Cell Counts when Grounding or Insulating [2] .

Photographic images documenting accelerated improvement of an 8-month-old, non-healing open wound suffered by an 84-year-old diabetic woman. Notes: (A) Shows the open wound and a pale-gray hue to the skin. (B) Taken after one week of grounding or earthing treatments, shows a marked level of healing and improvement in circulation, as indicated by the skin color. (C) Taken after 2 weeks of earthing treatment, shows the wound healed over and the skin color looking dramatically healthier. Treatment consisted of a daily 30-minute grounding session with an electrode patch while patient was seated comfortably. The cause of the wound adjacent to the left ankle was a poorly fitted boot. A few hours after wearing the boot, a blister formed, and then developed into a resistant open wound. The patient had undergone various treatments at a specialized wound center with no improvement. Vascular imaging of her lower extremities revealed poor circulation. When first seen, she had a mild limp and was in pain. After an initial 30 minutes of exposure to grounding, the patient reported a noticeable decrease in pain. After 1 week of daily grounding, she said her pain level was about 80% less. At that time, she showed no evidence of a limp. At the end of 2 weeks, she said she was completely pain-free.

Figure 2 – Grounding Effects on Inflammation[3]

.

In 1941 Albert Szent-Györgyi, a Hungarian Nobel winning scientist, revealed the basic principle behind this incredible system, when he spoke of proteins, previously thought to be insulators, acting as semiconductors. There are many names for this organic semiconductor network, such as: ‘Living Matrix’; ‘Ground Regulation System’ or ‘Tissue Tensegrity Matrix’ (TTM). Unfortunately, the Medical Profession continues to call this organic semiconductor network for an Extracellular Matrix (ECM). That is misleading at best, since the Matrix is most certainly intracellular as well.

 

Figure 3 – The Tissue Tensegrity Matrix (TTM)

Journal of Inflammation Research 2015:8

.

The Tissue Tensegrity Matrix consists of Sulfated Glycosaminoglycans (GAG’s), and proteins; mainly collagen that acts electronically as a semiconductor, and it is these the electrons whiz along, to stress again, to every part of the body. Unlike the chemical antioxidants, nothing can stop them. Specialised collagen (Integrins) are used to connect the Matrix to the cytoskeletons of the cells, and still other proteins transfer the electrons into the nuclear envelope and DNA, as seen in Figure 3.

 

Figure 4 – Collagen’s Triple Helix

Journal of Inflammation Research 2015:8

.

The triple helix formed collagen proteins, semi conducts the electrons, whilst the hydration shell surrounding each collagen fibre transports the protons back, as shown in Figure 4.

.

In the analogy, the food-based antioxidant can be seen as a water-filled sponge, with the body squeezing up to trillions of them over the burning area. Some will burn, and they all have to be disposed of. Connecting to ground would be analogous to using a fire hydrant, with the body using the Matrix as hoses to direct the water over the burning areas. 

.

Why are the electrons whizzing around in the earth so energetic? Because lightning is so energetic; the electrons are ripped from their former home, maybe an oxygen molecule, and very quickly transferred to the ground. The amount of energy the electron had, as a part of the molecule, was fixed; however, its energy afterwards equals the energy of the lightning-strike photon that hit it, and is potentially unlimited. This now unbound electron’s energy is exclusively kinetic, expressed in the speed with which it moves through the planet. These electrons instantaneously fill every living thing connected to the planet, providing a defence system that is both primal and primordial – well, unless that living thing has purposely disconnected itself that is. 
.

.

As well as antioxidising, the process also simultaneously alkalises. This, since the positive charge is taken away using a hydrogen ion (H+) and replaced with a hydroxide ion (OH). Ions are just atoms or molecules that have lost or gained an electron(s), resulting in the atom or molecule acquiring an electric charge. Using hydrogen ions to remove positive charge is alkalising, because hydrogen ions are the definition of acidity, and removing them therefore lowers the acidity in, for example, a cell. Even better, the replacement is an alkaline hydroxide ion, resulting in a system capable of alkalising an acidic environment at a higher rate.

.

In fact, the TTM is bidirectional; it can oxidise and acidify, if necessary, meaning it is a redox, or reduction-oxidation system. It may seem counter intuitive that the body would want to oxidise, creating acidity at the same time. I guess a feedback system has to work both ways, and the blood pH is very tightly controlled. Also, protons can be useful, for example in repelling joint ends. It might not even be a stretch, if the TTM took electrons from one area, in order to help another – an acute inflammation, might have electrons taken away, or at least become unavailable, because the red blood cells and/or mitochondrial matrix (Figure 23) were severely lacking.

.

It is thought that the electrons might also be used to transfer information and/or energy.

.

As electric charge

Every one of our, roughly 36 Terra, cells are surrounded by a negative electric charge; this charge is used to separate the cells and stop them sticking together. If the cells were stuck together, then viruses and bacteria have an easier time moving from cell to cell, among other problems. In this regard, viruses have no choice; they are little more than RNA strands, and must invade cells to survive. Although the negative charge around the cell will repel bacteria, those that do manage to adhere will grow exponentially. Healthy exclusion zones would provide a primary defence against the bacterial adhesion, as mentioned in Get plenty of daily exposure to …

.

In all cases, a sulphate molecule is used as a charge carrier for the electrons surrounding, and thereby providing a negative electric field to, the cells. Sulphated sugar molecules, known collectively as sulphated Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), are used to hold the charge, for example heparan sulphate.

.

.

The semi conducting collagen fibres, shown in Figure 4, are covalently bonded (except for Hyaluronan) to the sulphated GAGs, known collectively when part of the Extracellular Matrix, as ‘Ground Substance’. Other sulphated GAGs, such as chondriatrin sulphate are used to store the charge; it would seem likely that the body adapted to this after we detached ourselves from the ocean, around 360 million years ago. Since then to the present humans have become exponentially more insulated. 

 

When did we start to insulate whilst sleeping? Basically, when using raised beds, and/or sleeping on insulating materials, became the norm. Wood is not conductive, so this has been going on for a while, especially for the ruling classes. After the 1950’s, when conductive leather soles were largely replaced by insulating ones, the situation became even more dire; at this point the supply of electrons must have diminished to a great extent.

.

An enormous number of electrons are taken in by the grounded body, those that aren’t immediately utilised are stored in the Ground Substance via a vast network of charge carriers or ‘batteries’, known as Matrisomes. They are part of the ground substance surrounding the collagen fibres, as well depicted by Dr. R Paul Lee in Figure 5. It has been estimated that it takes around 40 minutes to charge the matrisomes from a discharged state [4].

.

Red blood cells (RBCs) are a special case, in that they have velocity; a velocity that increases, due to the motive force provided by the negative charge. You heard correctly; the electrons from the earth greatly help propel the red blood cells through their vessels, as well as preventing them from clumping together. Dr. S. Seneff clearly describes the physical action in the Powerpoint Presentation: Cholesterol, Sulfate, and Heart Disease Stephanie Seneff Wise Traditions Workshop, 2014. Red blood cells are not surrounded by a negatively charged ground substance, as are stationary cells. Instead, the charge carrying sulphates adorn the exterior of the RBC, for example heparan sulfate proteoglycans (HSPGs) or cholesterol sulphate (Ch-S). 

 

Cholesterol sulphate is especially beneficial, since both cholesterol and sulphate can be transferred to the blood vessel walls, together with the electrons. The two substances are vital in maintaining blood vessel integrity, else minute leaks will appear, leaking blood into who knows what. Maybe that is one reason why so many LDL particles are getting stuck in peoples’ arteries; the vessel walls cannot get enough water-soluble cholesterol sulphate from the red blood cells, so fat-soluble cholesterol is used as a last resort.

.

The amount of charge round the RBC is known as the Zeta Potential, whilst its linearly dependent speed is called the Zeta Velocity. Simply put, the more electrons around a blood cell, the faster it will travel and the more isolated it will be from its fellows. A highly valid study showed an average increase in both Zeta values of 270%, after just an hour connected to the earth! [5]

.

Figure 6 – Visualised Zeta Potential

The blood samples were taken during research into grounding by Dr Stephen Sinatra MD.

The darkfield microscope images show red blood cells taken from three people. The images on the left were made prior to grounding. The difference, after only forty minutes earthing, can be clearly seen in the right hand images.

.

Figure 7 – Blood Vessel Showing Electrostatic Forces

.

Basically, the RBC travels from artery to vein, and as it does so some negative charge is rubbed off on to the vessel wall. Figure 7 shows this process, with the cholesterol sulphate molecule (Ch-S) and its negative charge being transferred from the red blood cell to vessel wall. This means that the artery vessel’s wall becomes more negatively charged than the vein vessel’s wall, as there will be less charge left on the RBCs to transfer by the time they have reached the vein. Equivalently stated, the vein vessel wall becomes more positively charged than the artery vessel wall; and it is this positive charge that pulls the red blood cells towards it.

.

The electron transport chain (ETC) is a major component in mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS), also known as cellular respiration, which is the major way cells convert energy (Figure 23). If electrons are in short supply, then the mitochondrial matrix may become less negatively charged, resulting in a reduced proton motive force. In this case, the cell cannot produce an optimal amount of energy, resulting in fatigue, and possibly other pathogenic symptoms [6]. Has anyone ever felt ‘refreshed’ or ‘energised’ after a bath or shower? Chances are that was one of the few times in the day, you were properly grounded.

 

In addition to electrons, which are stripped from carbohydrates and fatty acids, the electron transport chain is highly dependent on oxygen, coenzyme Q10, and cytochrome c. A well functioning ETC is vital to health; nearly all cancer cells exhibit a reduction in mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation activity, switching the pathways on again cures the cancer cell, either by autophagia (suicide) or a reversal to normal cellular behaviour [7]. The question as to whether the OXPHOS is actually malfunctioning, or just not been properly utilised is unknown [8].

.

As a Reference Potential

In electronics, any conductor not connected to ground is considered to have a ‘floating’ electrical potential. Given that we can be considered as volume conductors, then a human body that is not connected to ground will also have a floating potential. However, the body is not just a passive conductor, rather it is filled with minute voltage/current sources, resistances and capacitances; though at these lower frequencies, inductances are not a factor. All these electrical equivalents, will cause various electrical signals throughout the body; grounding is one way to ensure that they are all referenced to earth, thereby preventing unnecessary electrical gradients from forming within. Our cells are highly dependent on voltage potentials, or gradients, to control or modulate various processes. 

 

For example, voltage-gated ion channels (VGICs) are ubiquitous in cellular membranes, maybe the best known are those that create the action potential (AP) necessary to fire a neuron, or activate a muscle cell. Regardless of the ion type, for example potassium, calcium or sodium, a predetermined electrical potential must be present across the cellular membrane, in order for the gate to open. At minimum this voltage must be around 10 mV, and around 45 mV to cause an action potential. Any disturbance to the electrical gradients, will slightly alter the electrical characteristics that determine when, and for how long, the gate should be open. It is also the case that many enzymes are sensitive to the pH of biological fluids, and a change in the charge distribution will alter the pH values, possibly causing alterations in the enzyme reaction rates. 

 

High voltage static electricity, in the form of positive charge, can also build up in the ungrounded body; evidenced by sparking and minute shocks, which are caused by a high, though weak, electron flow.

 

 

 

Collagen proteins evolved around 800-900 million years ago, during the primitive Metazoan period[9]. For this reason, collagen is utilised by all multicellular organisms, from sponges to humans, making it clear these semiconductors pathways are shared across all life. So, if your bunny’s cage is not grounded, it will certainly not be healthier. Neither will you.

.

There are multiple reports of COVID-19 patients suffering widespread inflammation, coupled with severe blood clotting. Keeping these patients completely insulated from the earth electrons, may not be the best course of action. The same could be said of astronauts, many of whom suffer health problems after extended time in space. Obviously, a lack of gravity, together with various other factors, such as increased radiation exposure, will put enormous stress on the body. Simultaneously removing the protective effects of earth electrons, and ultraviolet B, may well exacerbate the situation.

.

It is apparent that there is some internet misinformation with regard to, ‘Earthing causing problems’. Specifically that earthing currents or ‘dirty’ electricity can enter the body, and/or that the grounded body acts as a ‘magnet’, pulling in EMFs from the ether. The first point may be true, but only in very specific circumstances, eg. standing barefoot close to a transformer substation, or close to an earthing rod that is used as a single wire earth return (SWER). SWER systems are fortunately very rare, and usually limited to rural areas where a single farm may use this system to save on the cost of the neutral wire. The second point makes no sense; EMFs have no electrical charge, and so are not attracted to ground. Think about it, if this were true all microwave transmissions would be pulled directly into the ground (and every conductive thing connected to it), meaning cell phones would not work. 

 

Having said that, microwaves will enter the human body, if in their path. They do not ‘go to ground’ though, instead their energy dissipates due to the conductive nature of our various fluids – including the intracellular ones. The damage caused by this energy hitting a cell is shown in Figure 20

 

Microwaves can also travel using cables as waveguides; the same could be said for the very high harmonic frequencies that accompany switched mode power supplies, etc. I do not know how much microwave energy might be present in a house grounding circuit, but if you have a patch of earth nearby, it might be worth using a small grounding rod. It will give nearly as good an earth connection as the house ground, whilst being much more isolated. Keep the length as short as possible, and dig it underground a little if possible.

.

There is evidence that grounding is protective against induced lower frequency EMFs, stabilising the body voltage at the same time (Figure 8) [10]. Certainly, the measurements show body voltage reduction by orders of magnitude, after connecting to ground.

.

Figure 8 – Effect of Bed Pad Grounding on 60Hz Mode

.

Whilst grounding must surely help repair the negative effects from microwaves, there is no hard evidence as to whether or not it specifically protects against them. It is therefore a good idea to reduce exposure to all harmful electromagnetic fields, especially when sleeping.

 Get plenty of daily exposure to Near Infrared electromagnetic radiation, be circumspect around LED lighting.

Albert Szent-Györgyi, a Hungarian Nobel winning scientist, and the founder of modern biochemistry, is quoted as saying: ‘Life is water dancing to the tune of solids’. If 99% of all the molecules in our bodies are dancing, then it’s safe to say that near infrared (NIR) light is a major player in the orchestra. 

 

The following information regarding Exclusion Zone water, is sourced from the book by Gerald H. Pollack (PhD): The Fourth Phase of Water: Beyond Solid, Liquid, and Vapor (ISBN PDF ebook: 978 – 0 – 9626895 – 7 – 4 ). The book is well written and informative, providing a multitude of proof as to EZ water’s existence, together with some amazing facts regarding a molecule that conventional medicine considers as just a passive carrier.

.

Figure 9 – Water Molecule (H2O)

.

Water’s most common state, or phase, is that of liquidity; known as bulk water. Water also boils and freezes, resulting in corresponding gas and solid phases. Scientists agree that the water molecule, H2O, is electrically neutral; a single oxygen ion has a charge of -2 and its 2 hydrogen ions each have a charge of +1. Scientists also agree that a water molecule is arranged similarly to that shown in Figure 9; however, scientists do not agree, as to what exactly happens to the around 6.1024 of these molecules when they meet in a glass of water. The water molecules must somehow stick together, even if temporarily, else they would be in the vapour phase; precisely how they interact though, is still a mystery. 

 

That does not matter so much here, since it is only the Exclusion Zone phase, or EZ phase, water that has relevance; and the exact structure of EZ water is known. EZ water is found only next to hydrophilic surfaces, those surfaces that literally ‘love’ water. A wide variety of materials are hydrophilic, including gels and more importantly general biological structures: cells; proteins; organelles, including mitochondria; the Tensegrity Matrix; blood vessels and capillaries; joints, … . EZ water grows next to all these surfaces, and often completely fills the smaller structures. This is not so surprising, given that 99% of all the molecules in our bodies are H2O molecules.

.

Figure 10 – Isolated EZ Molecule

.

A single EZ hexagonal molecule is shown in Figure 10. These molecules can only exist in a lattice, or crystalline network.

.

Figure 11 -A Single Hydroxide Ion (OH) Bond.

.

Figure 12 – Building an EZ Molecule.

.

The EZ molecule is formed by a series of single OH bonds (Figure 11) taken from the water molecules, each bond becomes a single side in the six-sided molecule. Shown in Figure 12, is the last OH bond slotting into place. The 2nd hydrogen ions in the water molecules, shown in grey, are of no use, and so are discarded back into the bulk water.

.

Figure 13 – Exclusion Zone Lattice

.

Once a single EZ molecule is formed, then other water molecules attach OH bonds onto the oxygen ions to form a continuous lattice work of EZ molecules as shown in Figure 13.

.

EZ water has been measured to grow many millions of molecules in length, out from the hydrophilic surface; and given exceptional circumstances up to 1 meter. This could only occur, if multiple layers of EZ lattices stacked on top of each other, thereby creating a three dimensional structure. This is indeed what happens, as depicted in Figure 14, a negative oxygen ion is shown attracted to a positive hydrogen ion. It can be seen that the lattices must be offset from one another, in order for the charge-attracted ions to align. There are multiple configurations (shift left, shift right, shift forward, etc), that would allow the ions to align; and given the right circumstances all these configurations will grow outwards from the hydrophilic surface.

  .

Figure 14 – Exclusion Zone Layers

.

Figure 15 – Single EZ Molecule (H3O2)

.

To find the charge of a single EZ molecule, its chemical composition must be known. In this case, each ion is shared among either two or three other EZ ions (Figure 15). The six hydrogen ions each share their charge with two oxygen ions, so they each use half of their charge (6 / 2 = 3) . The six oxygen ions are each shared with three hydrogen ions, so each oxygen ion only uses a third of its charge (6 / 3 = 2).

This results in a total charge of -1, given each hydrogen has a charge of +1 and each oxygen -2:  (+1 * 3) + (-2 * 2) = +3 + -4 = -1 

.

Water is electrically neutral, it has a net charge of zero. So, for every unit of negative charge (electron) in the EZ water, a corresponding unit of positive charge (proton) must exist. These positive charges are the 2nd hydrogen ions that are discarded from the water molecules, when building the EZ hexagonal molecule. As soon as they are released, the negative charge surrounding the EZ molecules attracts them to the boundary between the EZ and bulk waters. Here, they congregate, and will therefore start to repel each other; there is only one place they can go, back into the bulk water. There the protons very quickly find negative charges to attach themselves to, provided by the oxygen ions belonging to the bulk water molecules. The resulting ion is called hydronium (H3O), and it has a charge of +1 (Figure 16).

  .

Figure 16 – Hydronium Ion (H3O)

.

Figure 17 – Exclusion Zone with Adjacent Bulk Water

.

Figure 17 shows layers of EZ molecules, growing out from the hydrophilic surface. Any surface is hydrophilic, if it contains charged atoms that can act as anchors for the EZ molecules; shown are oxygen ions, their negative charge attracts the hydrogen ions in the EZ molecule, allowing the layers to grow. A surface that contained no charged ions, would be classed as hydrophobic; in that case EZ molecules would not form.

.

Maybe the most dramatic, and conclusive, proof that EZ water does indeed exist, is that an electrical differential is measured between the EZ and bulk water. Around 150-200 millivolts are consistently measured, meaning EZ containing water contains potential energy. This is one of two main physiological benefits, which healthy EZ’s can confer on the human body. The other is that they are, literally, Exclusion Zones; their negatively charged, crystalline structure ensures a barrier that will let little bad through. Nothing much larger than a proton, can enter it: microplastics up to 10µm in diameter; bacteria; red blood cells, all are pushed out of the exclusion zone. Think about this, healthy EZ’s in the body create an alkaline shield around, well nearly everything, protecting cells, organelles and other structures from all contaminants. Don’t want the chemicals from that cigarette/vaper easily entering your lung, or any other, cell? Don’t want that bacterial infection to spread quickly? How about the mercury ions circulating through the brain? Viruses have positive charge, if in a low pH solution; the acidic bulk water abutting the EZ would provide such a charge. So the possibility is there that viruses will also be repelled by the EZ.

.

The electrical energy stored in the EZ may have a multitude of uses, given cells have been evolving for over three billion years, during which time near infrared energy has been available in quantities. It is unlikely that evolution would waste such large amounts of readily available energy; plants use EZ potential to drive photosynthesis. Cells may use the energy directly, for example in protein folding. The repulsive force of the proton may also be employed, for instance in helping keep joints separated. Where bones join, they are protected by a cartilaginous surface, and it is this that helps stop the bone ends from rubbing together. An encapsulated fluid surrounds the bones’ joints, but how can a mere fluid withstand the large forces sometimes involved. The answer is protons, specifically hydronium ions in the bulk water. As discussed previously, a large number of hydronium ions will be created by the Exclusion Zone molecules; their combined repulsive force allows the ends of the bones to glide, more or less frictionless, as the joint moves.

 

If, though, the exclusion zones start to fail, for example someone who has been deprived of near infrared exposure over an extended time period; how do the joints continue to function properly? It is not unreasonable to assume that the TTM may provide the protons; after all, both bone and cartilage will easily semi conduct the negative charge away, whilst the ground substance will simultaneously provide a proton, in the form of a hydrogen ion.

.

Small hydrophilic tubes, immersed in water, will begin to push water through them. Once the flow has started, it continues more or less indefinitely. The theory is that the protonated water, created by the EZ, provides the energy required to initiate and sustain a flow through the tube. But, if the EZ water contains energy, then energy must have been expended in building it – this energy is that used to ‘loosen’ the water molecules from their mutual attractions, which is a prerequisite if EZs are to form. 

 

There are two main ways this energy can be ‘delivered’: thermally, due to the bulk water temperature dropping to below 4oC; photonically, due to infrared radiation. The first case is not so surprising; ice crystals have exactly the same molecular lattice structure as EZ water. The only difference is that the protons (H+) are not ejected; instead, their electric force sticks the EZ sheets together to form solid ice. Anyway, keeping our body temperature under 4oC is not possible, whilst getting plenty of photonic energy is; however, the wavelength of the photons matters. For example, ultraviolet b will grow the EZ to a few times its original size, and will penetrate up to a couple of millimetres into the body.

.

Technically, the very best wavelengths are in the far infrared range; however, these are absorbed by the bulk water to such an extent that they cannot travel very far into the body. Another disadvantage, is that the far infrared wavelengths are directly preceded by microwaves on the electromagnetic spectrum. So, anyone taking a far infrared sauna, should be aware they are creating far fewer Exclusion Zones, than if near infrared were used, and are possibly exposing themselves to non-ionising radiation. It is also the case that these wavelengths are pretty much non-existent naturally, as the water vapour in the atmosphere absorbs them. 

 

Practically, the best radiant energy for EZ growth is near infrared (NIR); it can travel up to 100 mm into the body and grow the EZ by tens of times. Around 52% of solar energy is delivered as (near) infrared, it seems unlikely that 3.5 billion years of cellular evolution would overlook that fact.

.

If radiant energy can cause water to flow through 1 mm tubes, how about our capillaries, which are over 100 times smaller? It is certainly true that red blood cells are somewhat larger in diameter, than the capillaries they travel through. It is also true that the pressure differential between the capillary beds is small. Under these circumstances, an additional motive force, energised by sunlight, seems like an elegant solution. It has been estimated that an adult human’s capillary network is 96,560 km long; so that no cell is further than 50 µm away from the nearest capillary. It would make sense, then that the body will have evolved multiple ways of helping the red blood cells squeeze through this vast network. A basic depiction of this process is shown in Figure 18, together with the hydrophilic oxygen ions that are one reason why well-oxygenated tissues are so important; a lack of oxygen ions in the vessel walls would be detrimental to EZ layers forming.

.

Figure 18 – Protonated Capillary Vessel Showing Fenestrae

.

The capillary shown in Figure 18 also depicts the fenestrae, which are tiny pores (6 – 12 nm diameter) that penetrate through the vessel wall. These allow for the various toxins in the bloodstream, known collectively as causative pathological substances (CPS), to be filtered. Red blood cells have a diameter up to 1,000 times greater than the fenestration pores, and are therefore not able to enter the interstitial space. The basic idea is that the higher pressure at the arteriole end of the capillary forces the CPS through the fenestrae, where they mix in with the interstitial fluids. At the venule end, the filtered CPS flows back into the bloodstream, as it makes its way back to the vein. Not shown, are the assorted white blood cells (WBCs), platelets and other beneficial constituents of the bloodstream. Al-hijamah style wet cup therapy works by collecting the CPS into a cup, under negative pressure.

The EZ protonated water is also essential to the correct functioning of the Tensegrity Matrix, since the positive charge is carried away via a hydration shell that surrounds each of the three helical collagen protein strands. The ground electrons travel down the helical protein strands – the protons (H+) migrate back through ‘proton wires’, which consist of the hydronium ions in the hydration shell. The basic principle is shown in Figure 4. It therefore stands to reason, that if the EZs are not healthy there will be fewer hydronium ions, meaning the organic semiconductor network will not work as efficiently.

.

The infrared photons offer a further physiological benefit, in that they provide energy to chromophores; chromophores are molecules that absorb light, generally in the range 600 – 1400 nm, which is in the near infrared region. This is particularly important, since a chromophore, known as cytochrome c, is a vital component of the electron transport chain (ETC), meaning infrared energy can up regulate mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation, providing more energy to the cell. The basic process is shown in Figure 23, and while most NIR wavelengths do activate cytochrome c, two narrowband NIR wavelengths have been found which actually inhibit cytochrome c [11]. Both 750 and 950 nm wavelengths reduced cytochrome c activity, and therefore electron chain function; it could be imagined that this is part of a feedback loop to prevent runaway activation, in the presence of large amounts of NIR light. 

 

Coenzyme Q10 must be present, for the ETC to work, as well as oxygen, which acts as an end station acceptor for the electrons. It is not only the cells that directly benefit in this way; bacteria, specifically the beneficial bacteria in the gut microbiota have responded well to NIR light in highly reproducible tests, on mice anyway:

.

Photobiomodulation also produced a 10,000-fold increase in the proportion of the beneficial bacterium Allobaculum in the microbiota of mice after 14 days of treatment with NIR light but not with red light. [12]

 

In my opinion, an organic diet including prebiotics, and NIR light, may be a better way to increase the population of beneficial gut bacteria than taking probiotics. For a start, there is evidence that any probiotic colonies created, may not last so long. Secondly, probiotic bacteria are meant to colonise the colon, not the small intestine. Unfortunately, the probiotic bacteria can end up colonising the small intestine, causing small intestinal bacteria overgrowth (SIBO) in the process. Symptoms are brain fog and bloating, which don’t sound like fun. Prebiotics, on the other hand, are just food for existing bacteria, so will not create problems such as SIBO. Otherwise, introducing the probiotics in the form of an enema, could be a much more productive method, than ingesting them. Apples, including the core and especially seeds, are one of the best natural foods for gut health, as they contain around 100 million bacteria. Though the seeds contain a substance that the body transforms into cyanide, it has been estimated that an adult would have to eat over 140 seeds, to see any toxic effects.

.

We have likely had lots of evolutionary exposure to near infrared (NIR): from sunlight during the day; at night fires would give out plenty of near infrared. Rocks and other materials will also emit infrared, though at longer wavelengths, having absorbed solar near infrared radiation during the day. Just a decade ago, our near infrared exposure was somewhat greater, due to incandescent-type lamps. 

 

Ordinary light emitting diodes give off no infrared, and their widespread implementation could produce unintended, yet massive health problems. Severe infrared deficiency probably started back in the seventies, as  fluorescent tubes do not emit infrared either. Clothing is another problem, with regard to the cells’ evolutionary experience. A deep penetration into the body of near infrared photons will be hindered, if not blocked, by various articles of clothing. Of course we cannot walk around outside with no clothes on, well not for long anyway; however, it is a good idea to expose as much of the bare skin as possible to near infrared. Standing, lying down or working, around a high power NIR lamp at home might be one possibility.

.

Quite apart from the lack of NIR, LEDs also tend to radiate an intense blue spectral spike; this is problematic since blue light contains higher energy photons, and so will increase oxidative damage to the eyes. The end result will be yet further increases in ‘age related’ macular degeneration rates. Blue light in the evening also reduces melatonin production; melatonin protects the retina against oxidative damage, and is well known as a sleep hormone. Blue light blocking glasses are inexpensive, and can be worn at night to help prevent the high-energy photons entering the eye. It is, though, the lack of infrared that is potentially even more troublesome, as far as public health goes. Someone who gets little sunlight, and works/lives in places that have become all LED or fluorescent, might be in particular peril due to near infrared, and ultraviolet B deprivation.

.

Many have likely expended considerable resources in switching to LEDs, and having to switch back to incandescent lighting is annoying, to say the least. Personally, I’ve replaced the bright white LED’s in the kitchen, bath and utility rooms with seven 28W, two 28W and one 100W halogen bulbs; the other rooms have dimmable LEDs. You can be pretty sure that a bright white LED will have a massive blue spectral spike; however, using a yellow coloured LED does not necessarily mean the opposite. The ‘healthiest’ LED bulb, will ideally be one with a color rendering index full red spectrum (CRI R9) value over 90 – though obtaining one may not be easy. Many manufacturers do not reveal the R9 value, rather mask its poor performance by giving an average CRI value (R1 …R15), which is why it is important to ensure the R9 value itself is high, whilst R4 and R5 (blue light) are low. This will at least provide some visible red light, which creates Exclusion Zones better than any other colour on the visible light spectrum.

 Take daily exposure to ultraviolet B electromagnetic radiation, for example 20 minutes unprotected exposure to the sun.

In the presence of ultraviolet B (UVB) rays, skin cells synthesise fat-soluble pre-vitamin D (D3). Cells will also produce both vitamin D3 sulphate and cholesterol sulphate (Ch-S)[13] , however, in all cases an enzyme is also required. Enzymes basically speed up (or slow down) chemical reactions, in this case the endothelial nitrous oxide synthase (eNOS) enzyme speeds up the sulphate synthesis. It appears that virtually no medical authorities in the world know, or even care much, about cholesterol sulphate, or vitamin D sulphate come to that. It also appears likely that if it were not for Dr. S. Seneff, neither would anyone else. Dr. Seneff also notes that the eNOS has a dual functionality, in that it also synthesises nitrous oxide (NO). Depending on the location of the eNOS, it uses a ‘pathological’ superoxide (O-2) to make either Ch-S or NO. Dr. Seneff explains how both molecules are used by the body, in order to control blood viscosity:

.

It’s important that it’s one molecule controlling both the sulfate and the nitrate [oxidation] because these two molecules have very opposite effects on the blood. Sulfate gels the blood and nitrate turns it into water. It’s called kosmotropes and chaotropes in chemical terms. They have opposite effects. And your body is always negotiating, ‘Which way? Maybe the blood is too thick—let’s put out some nitric oxide. Or maybe it’s too thin—let’s put some sulfate in.’ It’s able to titrate between the two very nicely with that one molecule [eNOS].

.

The eNOS enzyme is part of a much larger class of enzymes, known as cytochromes p450 (CYPs). Unfortunately, glyphosate, marketed as Round-Up (as found in most conventional foods, beverages and food-sourced products such as vitamins/minerals) mimics the cytochrome p450, thereby preventing its function. As Dr Seneff points out, the endemic vitamin D shortage suffered now may well be down to glyphosate. As a side note, the vitamin D3 is also transformed into useful vitamin D in the liver and kidneys by a cytochrome p450. Zinc is essential, in order for the eNOS to function properly, whereas aluminium disrupts the process, which is yet another good reason to avoid sunscreen, or cooking in aluminium pans. 

.

If the body is covered by clothing, the sunlight passes through glass or polluted air/clouds else sunscreen is applied, the above benefits will not fully occur since the UVB will be blocked to some extent. Sunlight through glass is especially pernicious, as it completely blocks UVB, but not UVA, which sails directly through windows and into the skin. The end result of excessive exposure to window filtered sunlight, is a decrease in vitamin D3. This is to be expected, since UVB and UVA form a vitamin D3 feedback loop; D3 synthesis decreases in the presence of UVA and vice versa, thus preventing vitamin D3 overload from excessive sunlight. [14] New research has shown that the fat-soluble pre-Vitamin D (D3) may take up to 48 hrs. to be completely absorbed by the skin. Washing the sun-exposed areas with soap will also wash away the vitamin D3.

.

Cholesterol is a massively important molecule for all animal life. It has a multitude of functions, including modulating the viscosity of all cellular membranes, especially at lipid rafts where insulin and glucose enter the cell. It is also obviously used to make cholesterol sulphate, and less obviously so in producing vitamin D3

.

A well-known problem with cholesterol is that it is fat-soluble, so must be packaged in lipoproteins, specifically low density lipoproteins (LDLs), in order to travel the water-based bloodstream. Not so with cholesterol sulphate – by taking the sulphate molecule, the cholesterol becomes water, as well as fat, soluble! It can, and does, go anywhere without the need for LDLs. In addition to the increase in mobility, cholesterol sulphate can enter the cell ten times faster than ordinary, fat-soluble, cholesterol. The same for vitamin D sulphate vs. vitamin D [15].

.

Multiple sources are reporting an increase in both COVID cases and deaths, in those populations that are vitamin D deficient. Given that UVB produces two types of vitamin D, one of which is highly mobile, as well as immediately available, proper exposure to UVB may be seen as even more essential, when fighting a novel virus. It is also the case that darker skinned people, whom appear to have suffered disproportionately from the effects of covid in Western countries, filter out more UVB than lighter skinned people. This will result in even less cholesterol sulphate and vitamin D (sulphate) being synthesised. On top of this, the iron overload gene is more prevalent in the US Black population.

.

All red blood cells (RBCs) need cholesterol sulphate to both carry the negative charge around them, and to transfer cholesterol (and sulphate) to the vessel walls. Reducing the body’s cholesterol sulphate supply may result in vessel walls that are cholesterol deficient (Figure 7), enough of that and at best you end up getting acquainted with a cardiologist. As the UV rays cause both physiological (eg. vitamin D3 production) and pathological (eg. sunburn) oxidation processes, it is a good idea to be grounded when exposed to sunlight. Diet can also help, for example (especially cooked) tomatoes, and other brightly coloured fruits, contain lycopene, which helps with the inflammatory processes caused by exposure to ultraviolet light. Since hydrogen peroxide and UV light together, will create dangerous hydroxyl radicals; oxidative stress might be another factor to consider, when taking in the rays. The safest way to take UVB is to build up the natural tanning defences slowly, covering up immediately a pink hue is detected, or the slightest tenderness felt.

.

If you live in an area without more or less constant sunlight, a UVB lamp can be used. For example the Sperti Vitamin D Lamp, 10 min/day.

  Eat plenty of dietary sulphur, and supplement with methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) and silica.

The use of petrochemical fertilisers in the 1950’s broke the sulphur cycle, so that most do not get the necessary amount from diet alone. Fortunately it is very easy, and relatively cheap, to supplement with methylsulfonylmethane (MSM). MSM is usually extremely safe to take, in rat trials it was impossible to find a Lethal Dose, meaning the toxicity of MSM (for rats) is much the same as tap-water [16].

.

Many of the benefits attributed to MSM, for example its inflammatory properties, may be due to the ground electrons that are both stored and utilised using sulphate molecules. The free thiol groups, which are present in MSM, will also help reduce inflammation by reducing (recharging) peroxiredoxins. Thiols are a sulphur alcohol, and have many important physiological functions. Arguably, the most critical activity undertaken by the cell, is when constructing its DNA; free radicals derived from thiols build the deoxyribonucleic acids necessary for repair.

 

The downside is that thiols grab onto mercury with a very strong affinity; if there is a lot of mercury in the tissues, then problems arise. Some with mercury toxicity have reported a short period of well being after taking MSM, followed by a much longer period with negative symptoms, such as depression or fatigue. Seeing that thiols are found in many foods, and are anyway so important for cellular function, a better plan for those with mercury toxicity, may be to reduce the mercury levels circulating in the blood. Possibly the best method of extracting heavy metals from plasma, is Al-hijamah wet cupping therapy. Otherwise, there are foods that contain elemental sulphur, without the thiols, which can be safely eaten by mercury toxic people.

.

Sulphur deficiency has also been linked to stiff and impermeable cellular membranes meaning sulphur-deficient people with lung dysfunction will no doubt immediately benefit from extra sulphur supplementation. Furthermore, MSM is indirectly important for collagen health, in that it has been shown to reduce levels of homocysteine, a molecule with damaging effects on collagen crosslinking.[17] 

 

Silica (Silicon Dioxide, SO2) may be an even more important nutrient, as far as collagen is concerned; found in pears, bananas, beer, brown rice and dried fruit, conventionally grown food contains little. According to one study, collagen production increased by 19%, when taking a silica supplement [18] Other benefits include a major protective role in regard to atherosclerosis [19], and while the exact mechanisms at work are not fully known, it has been hypothesised that the increase in silicon helps the blood vessel walls in synthesising heparan sulphate proteoglycans (HSPGs). [20] 

 

As pointed out in Eat plenty of dietary cholesterol…, doubling the supply of HSPGs in the bloodstream, reduces cholesterol levels by up to 5 times. Silica is available as a supplement, but the cheapest are bentonite clay and diatomaceous earth (DE). I could not find any research on their bioavailability, however, one study showed with high confidence, a 13% drop in serum cholesterol; noting that the study had no controls, there were nineteen participants who were given just 250 mg of DE, 3 times a day over 12 weeks. [21] Any diatomaceous earth consumed must be food grade, from a fresh water source.

.

The human body cannot synthesis sulphur, and any sulphur taken is gone in 12 hours. So whatever dose you choose, take it at least twice a day. I take around 5 g*3/day. The FDA has a GRAS (Generally Recognised As Safe) limit of 4.8 g/day.

 Take vitamin C (and coenzyme Q10) supplementation; eat collagen rich food

One of vitamin C’s functions is that of facilitating healthy collagen synthesis. Coenzyme Q10 helps collagen regeneration, so is also important in this respect. Collagen proteins are used to build the Tissue Tensegrity Matrix, if it is not healthy then the semiconducting network will not work optimally. This is quite apart from collagens’ various functions as a ‘cellular glue’; providing supporting and connective tissue throughout the body. Depending upon the degree of mineralisation, collagen can be: rigid (bone); compliant (tendon); have a gradient from rigid to compliant (cartilage). There are, as of 2011, 28 distinct forms of collagen; however, they are made in the same way as all other proteins, meaning collagen is constructed from amino acids. 

.

Ancestral diets will have included the whole animal, from ‘nose-to-tail’, which implies that our cells expect a diet rich in collagen. A well-known source of collagen is bone broth soup; however, connective tissue (gristle) and skin will also contain rich amounts. Both the chicken egg yolk and shell membrane contain collagen, amongst other important nutrients such as cholesterol, sulphur and choline. Anyone making a calcium supplement, using organic eggshells with the membrane attached, will reap the above rewards. Collagen supplementation is highly recommended, for anyone eating a diet poor in collagen; this may be the case for someone who eats lean meat exclusively.

.

Vitamin C can easily be taken with the sulphur. Unfortunately, much vitamin C (as Ascorbic Acid) is sourced from wheat, which if conventionally grown will likely be harbouring glyphosate, or other metabolic toxins. I used to get ascorbic acid, for the high vitamin C content; problem is, the manufacturer gave a very vague reply, as to whether the crops used come into intentional contact with glyphosate. This seems disingenuous given they advertised as ‘GMO-free’; however, if it is not organically grown, the chances are it is filled with glyphosate. Other, fat-soluble, vitamins are often sourced from soy, with the same unfortunate result. I’m using an organic rosehip powder now, 4 – 5 g, 3 times per day – smokers use up more vitamin C, likely because it is put to use as an antioxidant. 4 – 5 g of rosehip powder only gives 16 – 20 mg vitamin C. It is unfortunate that the ascorbic acid is tainted, since under certain circumstances, 20 * 3 = 60 mg is not nearly enough.

.

A final, cautionary note regarding vitamin C, is its effect on iron. Free iron, floating around the body, is highly damaging; not only is it a necessary nutrient for nearly all pathological bacteria, it also creates highly reactive hydroxyl radicals when in the presence of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). In order to hide the iron from bacteria, and also to shield it from contact with H2O2, the free iron is ‘locked up’ in a protein (ferritin), capable of holding up to 4500 iron atoms per molecule. This works well, unless there is a high serum level of reduced ascorbic acid, in which case the vitamin C bores through the ferritin, releasing billions of free radicals. Alcohol is also problematic, in that iron is released when the alcohol is broken down in the body.  

 

Given that, 10/30% (Nonblack/Black) of the US population have the gene for iron overload, coupled with the fact that, for many, iron build up is assured over time, it is likely that a sizable minority of people will have too much iron in their serum. People who do not menstruate, else practice some form of phlebotomy, such as giving blood, should seriously consider wet cupping therapy (WCT). Iron overload causes massive oxidative stress; the organs of thalassemic patients are often severely damaged due to iron overload. Wet cupping will decrease ferritin levels much more efficiently and safely than bloodletting.

.

Is it possible that iron overload is contributing to some of the bad outcomes amongst covid patients? It is true that iron overload is more prevalent in males, and in older people of all genders. It is also true that the body uses high hydrogen peroxide levels to signal a cytokine storm, for example when being attacked by a fast growing virus. Administering high doses of vitamin C to patients with both iron overload and abnormally high endogenous hydrogen peroxide levels, might not be the best idea. The small amounts of vitamin C recommended here (<< 1 g) should not present serious problems, even in people with iron overload [60]

.

Vitamin C, together with vitamin K2 are important in, especially dysfunctional, electron transport chains (Figure 23) [61]. They can feed electrons onwards, bypassing the normal routes. Coenzyme Q10, though, is essential to the functioning of the electron transport chain, and cannot be substituted for. There is a decrease in the amount of Q10 available to organs, with heart cells particularly effected, starting at 20 years, as shown in Figure 24.

.

Figure 24 – Q10 Amounts in Organs Over Time

Pharma Nord.

.

Vitamin K2 has many other physiological, including cardiovascular, benefits, and works synergistically with calcium, magnesium and vitamin D. Vitamin D is taken care of via UVB; calcium and/or magnesium supplementation might be necessary, though a well-balanced organic diet could provide the correct amounts. On the other hand, K2 deficiency is widespread; the body cannot store or make much, contrary to popular belief intestinal microbes make no bioavailable K2 [62], neither can it be synthesised in useful amounts from K1. Fermented foods such as natto and some (raw milk) cheeses contain high amounts – supplementation is a good idea, if not getting enough through diet. 

  

Dutch researchers have found that covid patients with severe symptoms, all had a vitamin K deficiency. [63] They have concluded that the proteins synthesised with the help of vitamin K are necessary for blood clotting, as well as lung function. They also urge general supplementation, on the basis that even if it does not help with covid, it provides a range of health benefits and is extremely safe to take.

 Take as little glyphosate, or other metabolic toxins, in as possible.

Glyphosate, as well as being an extremely potent antibiotic, and was once patented for that purpose [22], disrupts the eNOS (endothelial Nitrous Oxide Synthase) enzyme. When this happens the blood cell will loose integrity, and blood vessel walls will be damaged, due to the lack of both cholesterol and sulphate. Neither will pre-Vitamin D (D3) or Vitamin D Sulphate be produced, or activated, in sufficient quantities.

.

Unfortunately, glyphosate is not limited in use to GMO crops. A major problem is that it is often used as a desiccant, though not approved for that purpose, resulting in highly contaminated crops. Particularly hard hit are legumes (pulses) such as peas; potatoes and other crops are also dried using glyphosate. Certainly, it has been found in many conventional foods/beverages/tap water now, and most people’s urine come to that. Beer, for example can have large amounts, so if an organic variety is available then drink that instead. Otherwise, conventional Tuborg Beer has been tested as having zero amounts. Especially French beers, and other conventional produce come to that, should be avoided, since French farmers use vast amounts of glyphosate. 

 

It appears that the Germans have announced an immediate partial ban on glyphosate, and a complete one within a few years. I had thought it strange that Bayer would buy Monsanto in order to keep producing one of the most toxic substances ever used in our food supply; thankfully, they have not. It remains to be seen what the replacement will be; however, anything less than wholesale organic farming, will not help ensure the healthy survival of the human genome. In the US, traces have also been found in some organic produce, though much less than in the conventional variety. There are even more pressing reasons for avoiding conventionally grown crops from the US, legumes among others are dried using diquat or paraquat with, or in place of, glyphosate. Unfortunately, plant lectin facilitates easy biological transport of these poisons, so avoid, at all costs, conventional produce from the US.[23]

.

Dr. Seneff summarises one of the consequences due to low level, chronic glyphosate poisoning as [my brackets]:

.

Small amounts [of glyphosate] don’t cause anything that dramatic, but they interfere with the red blood cells’ ability to supply cholesterol sulphate to your tissues, and your heart. I think heart failure is a direct consequence of insufficient cholesterol and insufficient sulphate delivery to the heart,’

 Eat plenty of dietary cholesterol and unprocessed saturated/monounsaturated fats.

Yet another suggestion that goes directly against conventional wisdom. It is generally, however, not wise to suggest someone cut out, or even down, on the cholesterol in their diet. Cholesterol is a massively important molecule for all animal life, cellular membranes contain around 25-30% cholesterol. It has a multitude of functions, including modulating the viscosity, and reducing the permeability, of all cellular membranes; cholesterol is especially concentrated at lipid rafts where insulin and glucose enter the cell. Alone the fact that the brain houses 25% of total body cholesterol, yet weighs only around 2% of total body weight should be a clue as to its importance. About 20% of our cholesterol comes from diet and 80% is synthesised.[24].

.

In 1952, G. V. Mann, SC.D., M.D. et. al. conducted experiments on Cebus monkeys, and were able to give them a vascular disease that resembled human atherosclerosis. The disease was preceded by a large increase in total cholesterol levels, as well as the beta-lipoprotein content of the blood serum. On the basis of this, and similar studies, we were suddenly told that dietary cholesterol and saturated fats were proven killers, and our only hope was to switch from saturated to polyunsaturated fats. Good-bye butter and lard, hello margarine and corn oil, oh and by the way, don’t forget to take your statins. In 1960, the same researchers produced another paper [25], which explored the beneficial effect of sulphur, when added to the monkeys’ diets, as their diets in the 1952 study were low in organic sulphur compounds. They summarise that:

.

The effectiveness of L-cystine, DL-methionine, L-cysteine hydrochloride, L-cysteic acid, cystamine, taurine and reduced glutathione in stimulating growth, production of hemoglobin and reduction in hypercholesteremia of sulfur deficient monkeys has been studied. These compounds, with the exception of cysteic acid, are shown to be effective.

.

Polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) can be, in their own right, dangerous, at least when they become incorporated into the cellular membranes. The problem is that polyunsaturated fatty acids are prone to oxidisation, even worse, once oxidised a chain reaction may occur, resulting in highly reactive fragments, known as malondialdehyde (MDA) exploding both outwards and inwards from the cellular membrane. Malondialdehyde fragments are characterised by C. Masterjohn Phd. [26] as being like shards of glass, ripping into cellular organelles and other intracellular structures. MDA also ends up in the bloodstream, and it is unlikely these ‘shards of glass’ will just float innocuously around, gently bypassing LDLs, RBCs and other bloodstream constituents; MDA levels in the blood are commonly used as an oxidative stress marker. The extremely dangerous chain reactions can be stopped, if vitamins C and E are present in sufficient quantities; the initial oxidation hit though, cannot be prevented. Cellular membranes consisting of saturated, or monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs), cannot ever oxidise; analogously, instead of glass, the cell is surrounded by armour plating, providing the membrane does not contain PUFAs.

.

Keeping this in mind, PUFAs are essential nutrients, and are generally classified as Omega-3 (ω-3), Omega-6 (ω-6), Omega-9 (ω-9), Conjugated and Others. Omega-9s are mainly MUFAs; it is the ω-3 and ω-6 fats that are exclusively PUFAs, and whilst both are necessary for health, the ratio between the two has become skewed. Dr. Mercola makes this point in an article highlighting the erroneous position taken by The American Heart Association (AHA) in this matter.[27] The AHA not only recommends increasing ω-6 intake, but fails to point out the dangers inherent in non-organic, highly processed, possibly GMO, fats. 

 

In other words, the quality of the fats is more important than the ratios; however, most experts agree that the omega 6:3 ratio should range from 1:1 to 5:1. Instead of five, the average American diet supplies a ratio from around 20 to 50:1. To make matters worse, partially hydrogenated oils (trans-fatty acids), such as (unfermented) soy products like soybean oil, have been linked to both cardiovascular and neurological problems. A recent study [28] looked at cardiovascular related hospital admissions before and after trans-fat restrictions in New York, and concluded that:

.

Our results suggest that the NYS restrictions on TFAs in eateries were associated with an accelerated decline in hospital admissions for MI and stroke. The difference between TFA restriction and nonrestriction populations was significant 3 or more years after restriction implementation.

.

In addition, the vast majority of non-organic vegetable oils likely contain high levels of glyphosate, whether they are trans-fats or not. [29]

.

Dietary cholesterol cannot, under any circumstances, be provided through a plant-based diet. Plants do not need it; they are immobile and have no nervous system. We are not plants, and have neither evolved as herbivores, so very much do need it. Especially older, plant-based eaters should be aware of potential problems due to cholesterol deficiency. Alzheimer’s, ALS, memory loss and Parkinson’s, together with a host of other physical problems, including but not limited to heart, kidney and muscular damage, have all been linked to statin use; though mechanisms other than cholesterol inhibition, such as low Q10, may play a part. In addition, high cholesterol levels in the elderly have been definitively shown, in a highly valid study lasting 17 years, to decrease all-cause mortality rates by over 4 years.[30] Furthermore, low cholesterol levels in the brain have been linked to violent behaviour, towards both self and others. This has been found to occur in both humans and primates.[31]

.

Disregarding genetic problems such as familial hypercholesterolemia; the problem is not that the liver produces too much cholesterol, or that someone eats too many egg yolks, it is merely that LDL particles get stuck, or lost, in the bloodstream causing high measurements. LDL particles will get lost, if they do not know which cell is signalling a need for fat-soluble nutrients; this happens if an acceptor protein, ApoB, which is attached to the LDL membrane gets damaged. Oxidation of the ApoB will be much more likely if there is excess fructose, or iron, in the bloodstream. Ironically, reducing the amount of cholesterol available to the liver may result in an excess of fructose in the bloodstream, as well as an excess of fat in the liver. The reason is that the liver uses cholesterol to construct very low density lipoprotein (VLDL) shells. If cholesterol is lacking then fewer, lower quality, VLDLs (which are the precursors of LDLs) means a reduced ability to transport the fats out of the liver. This in turn will reduce the amount of fructose the liver can transform into fat, resulting in more fructose molecules in the bloodstream. Glucose has 1/10th the oxidation power of fructose, which maybe explains why glucose tablets are hyped as a healthier choice than sugar.

.

In any case, the absolute LDL numbers show little as a heart attack indicator. Rather the High Density Lipoprotein (HDL) to Total Cholesterol Ratio should be above 24 percent. If below ten percent, there is a significantly increased risk for heart disease. In addition, the Triglyceride/HDL Ratio should be below two [32]. Following, especially the first four items in the plan will lower cholesterol readings. Simply doubling the amount of heparan sulphate proteoglycans (HSPGs) in the bloodstream can reduce cholesterol levels by 4-5 times! [33].

 Eat no salt, or otherwise added sodium, notwithstanding exceptional circumstances. Take potassium supplements if required.

An early critic of the salt-eating habit was Dr. Max Gerson [34], a brilliant man who, after escaping the Nazis, was one US Congress vote away from having his Cancer Protocol adopted by the United States. Very sadly, though maybe not unsurprisingly, he was killed by an unidentified hit and run driver in the 1950’s. A zero salt intake became one of the pillars of his therapy. One of the problems with salt, was hidden oedema; he saw in a microscope that cancers and other bodily insults, were invariably surrounded by water laden cells due to high sodium concentrations. A similar mechanism causes external swellings, such as witnessed in the swelling of an ankle after injury. The fact that the ‘glass’ lung CT scans of COVID-19 patients are a primary sign of pulmonary oedema, would suggest that one should be especially wary of a high salt diet if suffering respiratory problems.


.

Zoltan Sandor [35] is a Phd. chemist with very strong views on the intake of salt. His main theory as to why salt intake is detrimental, is that an excessive sodium concentration in the serum will leak passively into the cells’ intracellular fluid (cytosol), causing unnecessary work for the cells’ sodium-potassium (Na-K) pumps. The energy thus expended is no longer available for other necessary purposes, and we literally run out of energy. Eating more will not help, since the human organism is limited to the amount of energy that can be generated through ingestion. He further points out that it is entropy, or randomness, that kills us; robbing the human body of energy will only increase entropy. Cells might not be able to repair optimally, since the required energy has been used up by the Na-K pumps. Damaged cells are just not good; enough of them and the next step is a visit to the doctor, or hospital. Where does the energy come from to drive the sodium-potassium pumps, of which each cell has up to millions? Mainly from diet, meaning the salt-eating habit is wasting a great deal of food, whilst taxing a great deal of metabolisms, for zero gain.

.

It could be pointed out that the cellular membrane is relatively impermeable to charged molecules; however, the sodium ions can penetrate the cell through passive, or voltage-gated (Na+) ion channels, else through a damaged membrane. Since the total surface area between all cells and the surrounding plasma is so large, a raised sodium plasma level will result in the Na-K pumps working overtime. The spherical (approximated) human cell has an estimated mean volume of 4000 µm3 [36], resulting in a mean radius of 108 µm and surface area of 146.6E-9 m2. Given we have around 37 trillion cells in total then:

.

Total surface area = TotalCellCount . Average Surface Area per Cell

                               = (37E12).(146.6E-9) = 5.4 km2

.

Another observation from Z. Sandor, was the disconnect between contemporary sodium/potassium intakes, and breast milk composition. The ratio (potassium:sodium) for the standard western diet is around 1:2, in breast milk it is around 4:1 [37], and much higher in many natural foods. In fact, it is nearly impossible to find any natural food containing more sodium than potassium, for example, cod has eight, and pork six times the amount of potassium compared to sodium. There is much evidence that a low potassium intake greatly exacerbates the detrimental effects caused by excessive sodium. The standardised western diet, therefore, becomes even more dangerous.

.

The Paleo Diet inventor, Loren Cordain, PhD, Professor Emeritus [38], also points out the dangers of a high sodium diet, albeit from a different perspective. Among other things, he shows highly valid research, proving conclusively that even a short term, high salt diet, increases pro-inflammatory markers whilst decreasing the anti-inflammatory ones, in both humans and other animals. [39] He also shows that our evolutionary need for sodium can easily be realised by eating a natural diet. Certainly, an in depth study of non-Westernised societies shows an average intake of between 0.6 – 2.9 g salt. Salt consists of 39% sodium and 61% chloride, so this translates to 0.23 – 1.13 g sodium [40]

 

Even if we didn’t eat a grain of added salt, or other forms of sodium compounds, the sodium found in natural foods is sufficient, and in fact optimal, for human life. It is, though, possible that an elderly person on a zero salt diet will experience low hydrochloric acid (HCL) levels, together with the resultant digestive issues. HCL supplements can be taken, if the diet is low in chloride containing foods. Iodine also plays an important role in the production of hydrochloric acid. 

.

.

Figure 19 – Sodium and All-Cause Mortality Over 20 Years

.

There are those whom, despite the facts mentioned above, together with the anthropological evidence, will be convinced that that a very low sodium diet is dangerous. The blue line shown in Figure 19, represents the findings of the robust TOHP (Trials of Hypertension Prevention) studies, and clearly illustrates that a very low sodium intake reduces all-cause mortality over 20 years [41].

.

A normal blood sodium level is well kept between 135 and 145 mEq/L (milliequivalents per liter) == 3100 to 3350 mg/l. The body is very good at retaining sodium, and whilst healthy kidneys let little through, the sweat glands are not so efficient. Sweating is often thought to increase the need for sodium, but since the sodium in sweat is less concentrated than in the plasma, sweating actually increases body sodium concentrations. From research into sodium concentrations in sweat [my brackets]:

.

This number [sodium concentration] is generally a lot more stable than your sweat rate (it’s actually largely genetically determined), but it can vary wildly from athlete to athlete. We’ve tested athletes who lose less than 200mg of sodium per litre of sweat and we’ve also seen athletes losing well over 2,300mg per litre! Our data suggests the average athlete loses around 950mg/l and this tallies with other large scale studies [42].

.

This suggests that a ‘one size fits all’ approach, when considering how much salt to take after, say, running a marathon, is incorrect. The individual runner should really try and tailor the amount of sodium, to that lost, which as mentioned above, can vary by a factor of over ten. The same with (filtered) beer, it has the ionic content of distilled water, so drinking 10 litres whilst sweating a lot, could result in low electrolytes. I guess, though, many are guzzling down bags of crisps, or other salty items, whilst on a binge.

.

It is not a bad idea to take an organic potassium salt supplement, such as potassium gluconate. Potassium gluconate is an inexpensive, safe, supplement, which helps offset the damage caused by excessive sodium intake. Even if you never purposely add salt to your food, it is still likely you’ll still be getting a sizeable amount through hidden sources. This supplement (in a mix of other potassium salts) was used way back by Dr. Gerson, and more recently has been found to greatly help ‘unstiffen’ blood vessels in aging rats[43]. Nearly all natural foods have a lower sodium, higher potassium content; it is clear we are evolutionarily meant to consume considerably more intra- than extra-cellular electrolytic ions. Nonetheless, only 2 percent of US adults get the recommended daily amount of 4.7 g [44]. Healthy kidneys can easily remove large amounts of excess potassium; as noted in an article in The New England Journal of Medicine, titled ‘Paleolithic Nutrition – A Consideration of Its Nature and Current Implications’, Palaeolithic hominids got about 11 g of potassium a day and 0.7 g of sodium, a ratio of 16:1 [45]

.

Blood potassium levels are kept between 3.5 and 5.0 mEq/L and so are not nearly as tightly controlled as sodium levels. Unfortunately, if the kidneys are not healthy, then potassium can build up causing a state of hyperkalemia. This can be particularly problematic, as very high potassium levels can, at worst, cause heart attacks. A number of pharmaceutical drugs can also contribute to hyperkalemia, such as: ACE inhibitors; statins; ARBS; beta-blockers; NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) and certain antibiotics. As opposed to gluconate, or other organic potassium salts, potassium chloride should never be ingested as a supplement; it is damaging to the organism, especially the heart, which is why it is utilised in US execution protocols.

.

Health Leads Potassium Gluconate

.

I mix 50g potassium gluconate with 500ml distilled water, and take between 2 – 4 teaspoons == 10 – 20 ml == 1.0 – 2.0 g per day, together with an anyway high potassium, low sodium diet. Someone with a higher sodium diet, and no contraindications, could consider increasing the amount of potassium taken up to 5 g per day. It tastes not nice, so dilute in water, juice etc., though not in carrot juice. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recommends we consume about 4.7 grams of potassium per day.

 When drinking water, filter as much as possible, steam-distilled water is best. Keep well hydrated.

Depending on location, tap water and bottled water are badly contaminated, to varying degrees. Toxins intentional, such as fluoride/chlorine and unintentional, such as: excreted pharma medications; herbicides/pesticides; heavy metals; plastics; bacterial contamination; volatile organic compounds (VOCs); and industrial waste are pervasive. Steam distilling the water will deal with all these contaminants, save for the VOCs, which can be removed from the distillate using a small charcoal filter.

.

Fluoride is a highly toxic substance, even in its natural state, since fluorine is the second most powerful free radical oxidiser known, after hydroxyl radicals; however, the fluoride added to water supplies, and some toothpastes, is far from natural.

.

One intriguing and disturbing fact about fluoridation is that over 90% of the agent used in US fluoridation schemes is not pharmaceutical grade sodium fluoride, on which practically all toxicological testing has been performed, but industrial grade hexafluorosilicic acid obtained from the air pollution scrubbing systems of the superphosphate industry (e.g. Cargill Fertilizer). By law, this waste cannot be dumped into the sea but the EPA allows it to be diluted down with our public drinking water.[57]

.

It is known that phosphate fertilisers contain high levels of polonium-210, lead-210 and cadmium, in addition to the other toxins that are surely present in an air pollution scrubbing system. 

 

One of the most serious problems with fluorine, is that it replaces iodine in the thyroid gland, causing dysfunction [58]. Furthermore, recent research, published by JAMA Pediatrics in 2019, found that drinking fluoridated water during pregnancy lowers childrens’ IQs [59]. They measured the mother’s fluid intake and found that a 1mg increase (fluoridated water contains around 0.5 mg/l) in fluoride lowered IQ by 3.7 points. This is not a problem in most of Europe, at least.


.

Whilst distilled water measures slightly acidic on the pH scale, the overall effect on the body is alkalising. This is due to the infinitesimal negative charge, resulting from the polar action of the electrically neutral water ions. Technically, the shared electrons are pulled more toward the oxygen atom than the hydrogen atoms, giving the water a negative charge with which to attract toxins. Most toxins have a positive charge, and these often acidic toxins attach to the water’s negative charge, allowing them to be expelled from the body. 

 

Distilled water does not leach organic minerals from the body, these are biologically bound and cannot be easily unbound. Distilled water can leach inorganic minerals from the body; a kettle that has calcium deposits will be descaled by distilled water. Inorganic ionic mineral loss could therefore become problematic, if drinking distilled water exclusively over an extended time-period. Drinking distilled water in caffeine free herbal teas will hydrate nearly as well, and is recommended, together with juicing and perhaps taking some Bentonite clay. Supplementing with urine (About Urine Therapy) will also help prevent any mineral deficiency, regardless of the water type drunk. Many, including myself, have drunk distilled water for decades, without apparent problems. To sum up – a good mineral-rich diet (and supplementation) likely replenishes any inorganic minerals lost through chelation.

.

Certainly, if you empty a distiller after a couple of months use you can end up with a small ‘sandpit’. Even forgetting about all the toxins, this is comprised of inorganic minerals, most of which are not necessary to health. Only reverse osmosis (RO) filtering comes close to the quality of steam-distilled water; however, holistic practitioners have found that RO water does not hydrate the body properly. It is thought that the plastic filter harms the water molecules as they are forced, under great pressure, through it. There are also ceramic filters that seem to be able to take out most glyphosate, fluoride and other toxins. 

 

Regardless of water type, it is vital to stay well hydrated, around 3 litres water per day for an average adult. Prior to running water, people would be much more likely to gulp down quantities, when allowed. The rest of the time, water would be much scarcer, and maybe only evaporated water was available, such as the dew on a leaf. Perhaps drinking a third of the daily water intake on arising, with the rest sipped sparingly throughout the day, would help mimic this behaviour.

 

The TTM uses proteins to semi-conduct the electrons; however, Exclusion Zone water is used to semi-conduct the protons back. Interestingly, this is why the scientific establishment initially poo-pooed the idea of organic semiconductors. These brilliant minds took the organic protein and desiccated it – they then pressed the result into pellets and announced they were insulators. Proven completely wrong in recent times, organic semiconductors are now a reality.

.

A good way to determine hydration levels is to examine passed urine. If darker than pale yellow, dehydration may be an issue. Tasting the urine gives much more information, as well as healthy feedback to the body.

.

Durastill 46 Liter Per Day Manual-Fill Water Distiller

.

 

Unarguably, the best home use distiller in the world is the Cellkraft D-50 – it heats the water under pressure to 130oC producing the most pure and sterile water possible, outside of a laboratory. This also enables it to expel VOCs with a boiling point of 100-130 oC (though these are generally less harmful than the VOCs with a lower boiling point). It is fully automatic (self-filling, testing and cleaning), though costs roughly 5 times the Durastill model.

 Eat natural organic food, drink organic beverages, where possible.

Glyphosate and other herbicides/pesticides, whilst a major problem in non-organic food, are not the only ones. The nutrient/mineral depletion, compared to a few decades ago, is also extremely detrimental to health. The mineral content of organic vs. conventionally grown produce shows that organic crops are definitely more mineral rich.

.

Figure 26 – Mineral Content in Organic vs. Conventional Crops [78]

.

A new, large scale, study shows the cancer protective effect of organic produce:

.

Among some 69,000 people tracked by French scientists over several years, those whose diets contained more organics had about 25 percent fewer cancers overall, with 35 percent fewer breast cancers in older women and a more than 70 percent reduction in lymphomas[79].

.

Due to fertilising with phosphates, especially calcium phosphate, much higher levels of both polonium-210 and lead-210, as well as cadmium, are introduced into the crops. In 1995, the Florida Institute of Phosphate Research stated that: [80]

.

It has been known for many years that phosphate fertilizer ore contains 50~150 parts per million (ppm) of natural Uranium, and hence its radioactive decay products [i.e. polonium and radon], when compared to most other soil and rocks – which average 1 or 2 ppm.[81]

.

This also occurs with tobacco, and is especially dangerous since the short-lived alpha particles come in direct contact with pulmonary cells, the result of which is well-known. A 2009 study quantifies the harm done by using phosphate fertilisers on tobacco crops: [82]

In a person smoking 1 1/2 packs of cigarettes per day, the radiation dose to the bronchial epithelium in areas of bifurcation is 8000 mrem per year – the equivalent of the dose to the skin from 300 x-ray films of the chest per year.

.

Smoke organic tobacco if you do not want extremely dangerous ionising radiation to come in contact with your lung, or any other, cell. Smoke organic tobacco if you want to avoid lung cancer, just like the early Europeans, or indigenous Americans. Eat organic food if you do not want dangerous ionising radiation as a part of your diet.

.

Smokers should also be aware of the ‘time to first cigarette’ (TTFC). An Environment and Genetics in Lung Cancer
Etiology (EAGLE) study of 3,249 smokers found a significantly higher risk of lung cancer in those participants reporting a shorter TTFC. Interestingly, the link was even stronger amongst light smokers. This would suggest that smokers, especially those who only smoke a few a day, should make sure the first one is lit at least 15? minutes or so, after getting up.

 

In an almost ironic twist, both a small Chinese study and a much larger French one, found that smoking was highly protective against covid:

.

“Our cross-sectional study strongly suggests that those who smoke every day are much less likely to develop a symptomatic or severe infection with Sars-CoV-2 compared with the general population,” the Pitié-Salpêtrière report authors wrote. [83]

 Stay as well away as possible from microwave radiation, and other EMF sources, especially at night.

At the digital frequencies utilised today, it is not hard to imagine that a cell would fare much worse than the cell exposed to 1.8 GHz, 24hrs continuous wave non-ionising radiation, shown in Figure 20.

 

.

Figure 20 – Human Cell Exposed to Low Level Microwave Radiation

 

The orange-red blur emanating from the irradiated cells includes DNA fragments. It should be noted that the cell exposed to gamma radiation was x-rayed 1600 times! Should you sleep with a machine that causes nearly as much visible DNA damage as x-rays, next to your bed? Soviet scientists conducted extensive research on the effects of microwave radiation, and concluded that it was too dangerous to use around humans; as a result, the Soviet Union banned microwave ovens [46]. On the other hand, our Capitalist Class doesn’t seem to mind so much; after all, pharmaceutical shares are extremely lucrative.

.

Figure 21 – Incidence of Glioblastoma in Denmark

.

Figure 22 – Cell Phone Ownership in Denmark

.

Figure 21 shows the incidence of the aggressive brain cancer, glioblastoma (GBM) in Denmark [47]. Looking at the increase relative to 1995, it can be seen that there has been around a doubling of cases. Though, about 15% of this increase may be due to an aging population. The fact that the increase progresses steadily, from the time when mobile phones started to become widespread, as illustrated in Figure 22 [48], is suspicious, to say the least. Of course, it is impossible without becoming a hermit, to totally avoid this potentially very dangerous non-ionising radiation. 

 

Accurate microwave meters do not cost too much, making it possible to avoid hotspots. In my experience, indoors is usually better than out, whilst groups of people checking out their smartphones can give off very high levels. Public transport, and taxis are also often a source of high readings. Connecting conductive wiring to the ears is not a good idea, as microwaves can traverse the wire, which they see as a waveguide. Even if your phone is in airplane mode, microwaves from other sources can travel the wires; ‘air tube’ headsets have been shown to reduce this radiation by up to 99%.

.

The microwave fields, as given off by phones, routers etc. are (supposedly) restricted in most Western countries to a maximum power density of 450 µW/cm2; though several countries do have tougher restrictions, for example Russia and Poland have 40 µW/cm2 whilst Belgium only allows 2.5 µW/cm2. Four hundred and fifty micro watts per square centimetre is incredibly high, compared with the cells’ evolutionary experience; until a few decades ago, the non-ionising radiation we were exposed to had a power density lower than 0.00000000001 µW/cm2.[49] 

 

Yet we are told it is perfectly safe; this dubious conclusion is reached, as it is only thermal effects that are considered detrimental to the cells – in other words treat the human cell as a ‘bag of water’ with various components floating around in it, and as long as the water doesn’t get too warm, everything’s ok. It sort of reminds me of science class when I was a kid, (way) back in the 80’s. Given the immense complexity, and fragility, of cells, it beggars belief that they are still using this model in 2020 [50].

.

Figure 23 – The Electron Transport Chain (Mitochondrial Oxidative Phosphorylation)

.

Figure 23 shows a much simplified block depiction of the electron transport chain (ETC), which is the major way that cells use to produce energy, at least when they operate ærobically. If molecular oxygen is lacking, for example a muscle cell under continuous strain, the cell will stop using the ETC and work anærobically instead. Basically, electrons are stripped from food, mainly via the Krebs cycle (citric acid cycle), and fed into the ETC. The Krebs cycle takes in acetyl-coenzyme A (acetyl-CoA), produced indirectly from glycolysis or directly via beta oxidation. Glycolysis occurs in the intracellular fluid (cytosol), and uses simple sugars, mainly glucose, to produce the substrate (pyruvate) from which acetyl-CoA is made. For each glucose molecule, glycolysis outputs two molecules of pyruvate, two molecules of energy, in the form of directly available adenosine triphosphate (ATP), and two high-energy electron carrier molecules (2NADH). The NADHs’ four electrons are literally shuttled across the mitochondrial membranes into the mitochondrial matrix, after which they can enter the electron transport chain.

.

Situated in the mitochondrial matrix, the Krebs cycle completes one revolution for each acetyl-CoA molecule, and will therefore complete two cycles per glucose molecule. This results in two molecules of ATP, as well as four molecules of carbon dioxide (4CO2), being produced. In addition, two molecules of CO2 are produced during the transition step (pyruvate decarboxylation), making a total of six CO2, which ends up being expelled through the lungs. 

 

The NADH and FADH2 molecules carry the electrons to the ETC, noting the NADH electrons have a higher energy than the FADH2 ones. The six NADHs from the Krebs cycles, plus two NADHs from the transition step, give their sixteen electrons to complex I, with another four electrons originating from the two glycolysis NADHs. The four lower energy FADH2 electrons enter complex II. 

 

There are four protein complexes in total; each one passes the electrons on via reduction-oxidation (redox) reactions. The redox reactions are facilitated by coenzyme Q10 between complexes I/II and III, and cytochrome c between complex III and IV.  Cytochrome c can be energised when hit by photons, specifically near infrared light; shown in Figure 23 as wavy orange lines. Not shown are the redox reactions which enable the electrons to actually enter complexes I and II.


.

Beta-oxidation (β-oxidation) occurs mainly in the mitochondrial matrix, and converts medium chained fatty acids directly into acetyl-CoA. People on ketogenic diets, or who are fasting, will increase their β-oxidation rates at the expense of glycolysis, providing even more acetyl-CoA from the energy dense fats.

.

Once the electrons are finished in complex IV, they need somewhere to go, which is where molecular oxygen comes in – four electrons and four protons, together with molecular oxygen (O2) results in two molecules of water (2H2O) being produced. If oxygen is not available, for example if drowning, else if the complex IV is blocked which occurs if cyanide is ingested, then the process stops, and so do we. 

 

Also shown is a stray electron escaping complex I and hitting one of the molecular oxygen atoms, resulting in the formation of a superoxide anion radical (O2); superoxides are highly reactive oxygen species (ROS) and can cause a lot of oxidative damage (stress), at least until they spontaneously dismute (react with themselves) into molecular oxygen and hydrogen peroxide, that is. Unfortunately, they can react with other things before they dismute, such as transition metals. In this way, they can cause all sorts of damage, such as impairing the citric acid cycle, dumping large amounts of potentially toxic iron in the process. Superoxide dismutase enzymes (SODs) vastly increase the rate of dismutation, thereby ensuring the superoxides do not exist long enough to cause real harm.

.

Up until this point, no usable energy has been produced by the ETC, rather the ‘fuel’ needed for energy production has been prepared; in the form of a proton gradient. As the electrons pass through complexes I, III and IV, they pump hydrogen ions from the inner mitochondrial matrix, through the inner membrane and into the intermembrane space. Hydrogen ions have a positive electrical charge, they are protons, and want nothing more than to get back into the negatively charged mitochondrial matrix; however, they cannot go back the way they came, neither can they penetrate the inner mitochondrial membrane. 

 

There is only one way they can go back, through an enzyme called ATP Synthase. ATP Synthase, as the name suggests, synthesises adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is the major currency of energy for the cell, and by extension, for us. There is a channel in the ATP Synthase, which the protons flow through, and as they do so, they physically turn a rotor; the rotor can spin up to 200 Hz, creating a large amount of ATP (34 ATP per glucose molecule) as it does so. Like a windmill, except the wind is not air, rather hydrogen ions rushing past the rotors; it is also a lot smaller than a windmill, just a few nanometres in diameter.

.

Technically, the force driving the protons through the rotors is known as the proton motive force (pmf), since it consists of a chemical and electrical component. The chemical part is due to the difference in proton numbers, and contributes around 60 mV to the pmf. The electrical part contributes more, around 160mV, giving a total pmf of 220mV between the more positive mitochondrial intermembrane space and the negative mitochondrial matrix [51] 

 

Mature red blood cells have no mitochondria, or hardly anything else inside, thus enabling them to squeeze into microscopic capillaries (Figure 18). Other cells, though, have many; metabolically active cells may house thousands, and each mitochondrion may contain over 300,000 ATP synthases. Meaning, a cell that has just a thousand mitochondria would have an ATP synthase number equal to the population of the US. That’s a lot of protonmills for a bag of water – it is just not rational to believe that bombarding cells with high energy non-ionising radiation will have no consequences, above thermal heating problems.

.

Although I would prefer all microwave transmissions be outright banned, pending proper investigation, the Capitalist producers will never put our health above their profits. At the same time, it is unlikely that public support for such a ban would be high; even so, the power levels could be drastically reduced, without having a detrimental effect on coverage. The trick is to use many more very low power cell towers, and to work hard on the reception hardware and algorithms. Neither of these approaches would be cheap, though the potential reductions in health care cost and human suffering are easily worth it.

 

Another problem is bandwidth, microwaves just don’t have enough, so in the end other methods will need to be employed. The only possibility are photons, light has an orders of magnitude greater bandwidth and is generally completely harmless.  

 

A whole host of independent researchers have highlighted the myriad dangers of high-powered microwave transmitters, such as those found on cell phones; their findings can be viewed at Bioinitiative. Grounding to earth gives some protection, not least because the antioxidant electrons will help repair any damage. The best chance of avoidance is at night. I would think that sleeping on a grounded sheet, surrounded by a rf. reflective canopy is best if you cannot control the levels. Else turn off mobiles, routers etc. whilst sleeping. Putting them in the next room is just like moving a bit further away, walls do not generally hinder microwave radiation. 

 

Think seriously about removing all wi-fi networks at home, connecting with cable instead. Doing so will also save energy, be more secure, and remove the need to purchase wi-fi routers in the first place. Ending on a dystopian note all bets are off when, if they dare, 5G mm is rolled out. Doing what they are doing now is insane and should be a crime (certainly at current power levels), subjecting us to 40 GHz is criminally insane.

 Try prolonged fasting, intermittently.

It is quite clear that from an evolutionarily standpoint, we have not stuffed ourselves silly 365/24/7. It is certain that our ancestors, up until relatively recently, had to skip food intake for longer or shorter periods during the year. Intermittent healing fasts are one way to better emulate these historical food consumption patterns. That our bodies expect, and even rely on, periodic fasts can be deduced from much research showing that the immune system is effectively ‘rebuilt’ using this method. This will include natural killer (NK) and cytotoxic T (CD8+) cells, which are vital if the body is presented with a novel pathogen.

.

The researchers only looked at immune cells, finding a 28% reduction in white blood cells, but hypothesised that any cell in the body could also be replaced, when in a longer-term fasting state. The basic theory is that when the body starts to recycle cells, it picks the damaged ones first, and replaces them with healthy versions.[52] [53] The healthy versions come from stem cells, which are activated during a prolonged fast via several mechanisms, for example a reduction in the insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-I) hormone levels, which in turn lowers the Protein Kinase A (PKA) enzyme.

.

There have been various studies investigating the effects of prolonged fasting (PF) on differing organisms, and the results suggest that PF benefits are shared across multiple life forms, from yeast to mice and humans. Specifically blood glucose levels in mice dropped by 75% (compared with 15% for dietary restriction DR), likewise, insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-I) decreased by 75% in humans and mice after a short-term PF, whereas DR had no direct effect on human levels.[54] Intermittent one day fasting was found to have roughly the same benefits as DR, neither of which are nearly as powerful as prolonged fasting. 

 

The general PF period used in these studies was 4-5 days for humans, and 2-3 days for mice, which might seem like a lot; nevertheless, it is estimated that a 70 kg person could fast for 2-3 months, using the body’s energy reserves during this time. [55] This is based on an average person having a fat store of 141 kcal, from which around 1000 – 1500 calories/day would be used during the prolonged fast. Protein and glucose stores also provide some energy, but it is the switching from glucose to fat utilisation (glycolysis to β-oxidation – Figure 23) in a wide variety of cells (especially those in the brain) that allows prolonged fasts over months.[56] Short (2-3) day fasting cycles should be sufficient here, though. Most supplements mentioned in this plan could be taken; however, any substance that contains calories should be avoided, for example cholesterol, or rosehip powder. Taking in, even a small amount of calories could cause DR rather than the much superior PF effects; to be absolutely sure it might be better to stick solely to water(s).

.

I do not know if there would be an overall increase in oxidative stress due to the fast, it is anyway a good idea to ground, relax and lie down when fasting. It is also a perfect time to sit, squat, lie or generally be around a high powered near infrared lamp. As well as the benefits mentioned in ‘Get plenty of daily exposure to …‘, the increase in (especially armpit) sweating, which occurs at rates far exceeding those resulting from the thermal heat alone, may partly be a result of healthier Exclusion Zones throughout the lymphatic system; the armpits contain many lymph cells. The higher cellular energy output, due to cytochrome c activation, may be another factor. Sweating out toxins is never a bad thing, but may be especially important whilst a fasting body is consuming a part of itself.

.

As, really an afterthought, it is likely that water also became scarce at times – so could there be an evolutionary benefit to trying a so-called dry, or restricted water, fast? It is also quite possible that primitive humans drank their own urine, if there were no other sources. Though counter-intuitive, urine (About Urine Therapy) becomes clearer during a fast; after an initial ‘cleaning out’ period, the urine becomes more or less indistinguishable from water. Primitive humans likely had no moral structure that would frown upon the practice, neither were there clear indications that it was toxic – it doesn’t smell like shit, it sometimes even tastes quite nice – so why would they not?

 Try to not start taking pharmaceutical synthetic drugs, either prescribed or OTC.

Nearly all allopathic drugs, whether prescribed or over the counter (OTC), are seen metabolically as toxins, which is one reason why liver and kidney dysfunction are such common problems. To make clear I’m not saying people should refuse medication, especially for acute problems. Obviously medical drugs can save lives, but I think they can also take them, over the long term. It is worth noting that the vast majority of pharmaceutical products restrict or block, rather than enhance, a metabolic process. 

 

Cholesterol lowering drugs such as statins are in a class of their own; they block the action of an enzyme, HMG coenzyme A reductase, thereby significantly impacting the production of synthesised cholesterol, by up to 60%. Dr. S. Seneff has published a detailed paper, illuminating the many, and varied, horrors of statins [15]. It seems that her extensive research on this subject, then led to her research on cholesterol sulphate. That might well be the only good thing to ever come out of statins.

 

Other important biological substances are also synthesised along the same pathway, for example dolichols, which are used in the construction of organelle membranes, whilst coenzyme Q10, essential in cellular energy production, also as an antioxidant, is lowered by around 40% [64].Figure 24 makes it clear that Q10 levels naturally decrease with age, artificially lowering them further is just adding insult to injury. A meta-analysis published in the American Journal of Cardiovascular Drugs cites nearly 900 studies on statins’ adverse effects.[65] 

 

The whole idea behind statins seems just wrong-headed; a (vastly oversimplified) analogy might be a logistics firm that must deliver packages around a city. Unfortunately, the delivery vans kept crashing, or getting lost; instead of clearing the roads, and putting up new traffic signs, the owner’s answer is to stop sending all the vans out! Other pharmaceutical products, such as some beta-blockers, also have an adverse effect on Q10 synthesis [66].

Talking about beta-blockers, as reported in Forbes Magazine [67], up to 800,000 Europeans have died on the operating table over the last 5 years, due to a single researcher’s flawed results. To be fair to the (ex)researcher, a Dutchman called Poldermans, he is not to blame for the European Society of Cardiology’s (ESC) decision to recommend using the deadly beta-blockers for two years after his research was discredited; directly causing the deaths of around half a million. Even now, they have not banned this practice, so if you are going into surgery, and do not have a legitimate reason to take them, such as prior cardiac problems, then make sure they do not give you beta-blockers.

.

A fair number of over the counter (OTC) drugs, should not be. The side effects can be just as severe as those engendered by prescribed medications; in fact, all of the current OTC drugs were previously only available by prescription. Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are yet another example of a synthetic drug that blocks an enzyme, in this case hydrogen/potassium adenosine triphosphatase, and by doing so effectively switches off the gastric proton pump.

.

These heartburn drugs may not be as innocuous as they might seem. PPIs are better known by their brand names-Nexium, Prevacid and Prilosec. They are also available generically as esomeprazole, lansoprazole and omeprazole.

.

‘Over the past several years, a number of serious adverse effects have come to light. They include an increased risk of infections such as pneumonia and Clostridium difficile, weakened bones, poor absorption of nutrients such as calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc and vitamin B12, heart attacks, kidney disease and dementia.[68]

.

The deleterious effects on the gut microbiota have been well studied [69]. It anyway stands to reason that drastically lowering the acidity in the stomach will cause malabsorption of some nutrients, as well as a reduced ability to kill pathogens, including viruses. In my case, heartburn always resolves in seconds after taking 3-4 charcoal tablets. Hiccups also, though they take up to a few minutes to disappear. I would therefore urge anyone to try charcoal tablets first; however, if eating a highly processed, salty diet, charcoal tablets may not be enough.

.

Anticholinergic drugs block a neurotransmitter known as acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is produced, as the end result of an action potential, which causes a muscle to contract or expand, else stimulates a neuron. It is maybe then not surprising, that this class of drugs has been robustly linked to various dementias. It is true that only prescription anticholinergics were looked at, but in many cases the active ingredients are shared with the OTC drugs.[70]

.

OTC painkillers can kill more than just pain. For example, paracetamol (acetaminophen) can quite easily destroy a healthy liver if the recommended daily dose (4 g) is exceeded, even slightly. Those with liver dysfunction, may be harmed at somewhat lower doses. In any event, due to paracetamol overdosing, 1,500 died in the US over a ten year period up to 2010.[71] Ibuprofen, and other NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) also have side-effect lists as long as your arm. 

 

I find smoking hashish a useful painkiller, as well as an effective sleep aid. Cannabis is naturally derived, as are some of the best pharmaceutical drugs, such as penicillin, aspirin and metformin. In fact, there are over a hundred plant based active ingredients used in medications today.

.

It is by now, well established that the COVID-19 virus attaches only to the ACE2 (angiotensin converting enzyme 2) receptors, which adorn many cells, no more so than the colonic epithelial cells. Given that fact, I find it surprising that so little attention has been given to toilets, during these current times. If you do not close the lid before flushing, a bomb consisting of pathogenic microorganisms explodes in the air above. Forget covids, who really wants to breathe in a shitload of those? Perhaps closing toilet lids before flushing should be mandatory, or at least advised. 

 

ACE inhibitors, and especially Angiotensin Receptor Blockers (ARBs) work by increasing the number of ACE2 receptors. These drugs are often given to the obese, diabetics, and people with cardiovascular problems; the exact groups that are ending up with much more serious symptoms. Ibuprofen (which also increases ACE2 expression), paracetamol or aspirin are commonly used to reduce fever; using any antipyretic to lower non-critical temperature below 40 ºC (104 ºF), may not be a good idea. Studies have found that interrupting one of the body’s vital defense strategies, might not end well:

.

For example, a survey of patients with community-acquired pneumonia showed that those with temperatures above 37.8 degrees C and a leukocyte count above 10 000 cells/mm had a 4% mortality rate, which compares with a mortality rate of 29% for patients with neither fever nor leukocytosis. [72]

.

Many people disregard evidence based, holistic, treatments because there are no, or few, (randomised) double-masked medical studies. Apart from the obvious problem of, who’s going pay to study a therapy that can be done for free, else a fraction of the amount sucked up by conventional therapies, I do not think a particular holistic treatment can usefully be singled out for test. Apart from the obvious requirement of clean food,  water and air, it should be combined with other compatible holistic treatments, and perhaps include some of the suggestions here; unfortunately, the economic system in which we live will never spend the considerable amounts necessary, if the only benefit is good health.

 

Those distrustful of alternative therapies will happily take multiple synthetic preparations for years, even decades, based on ‘gold standard’ double masked placebo-controlled scientific trials that in many cases only last a relatively short period of time. Additionally, these trials do not usually take into account drug interactions, so can only be considered completely valid in patients taking a single drug. Bias may be another factor, since the trials are usually conducted by the pharmaceutical companies, who clearly have a vested interest in obtaining positive results. 

 

It is anyway obvious that many disease rates are increasing, and in some cases skyrocketing. The capitalist medical system often blames this on the fact that we are living longer, and even tries to paint it as a win. The facts are a bit more depressing, for example in 1925 there had only been about 50 cases of macular degeneration ever recorded [73]. Fast forward to 2010 and US rates [74] are at around 260,000 cases for people under 64. In 1925 the average age for US females was 60.6 years; however, those that reached the age of 20, could be expected to live to around 67 [75]. To put it in even starker perspective, the 50 worldwide cases in 1925 are expected to rise to nearly 200 million by 2020

.

There are widely varying estimates of the death rate due to general medical errors and adverse drug reactions (ADRs):

.

Based on an analysis of prior research, the Johns Hopkins study estimates that more than 250,000 Americans die each year from medical errors. On the CDC’s official list, which would rank just behind heart disease and cancer, which each took about 600,000 lives in 2014, and in front of respiratory disease, which caused about 150,000 deaths.

.

Adverse drug reactions (ADRs) are a leading cause of death in the USA, say Canadian researchers. Bruce Pomeranz and colleagues at the University of Toronto estimate that ADRs could account for more than 100 000 deaths in the USA each year, making them the fourth commonest cause of death after heart disease (nearly 750000 deaths), cancer (530000), and stroke (150000) ( JAMA 1998; 279: 1200–05).

.

The EHP is generally for people wanting to maintain ‘good health’, and should help prevent the need for future medication. If already on prescription drugs then it is a different matter; whilst following this plan will likely help reduce, or even eliminate, the need for medication, research should be done to make sure the suggestions here will not cause any adverse reactions. For example, anyone on blood thinning medication should be aware that grounding will reduce blood viscosity, and the drug intake should be adjusted accordingly. Those with reduced kidney function, or diabetes, should take care not to consume high amounts of potassium; whether through diet or supplementation.

 Drink organic juices, from a ‘slow’ juicer, preferably a Norwalk or similar.

Figure 25 – Nutrient and Mineral Composition in Soil

.

There is some evidence that actual soil contents have not generally reduced by as much as the graph suggests. According to some soil experts, there are easily enough minerals in soil, the problem is rather that the microorganisms, necessary to turn the minerals into a form accessible by plants, are harmed by conventional farming methods. This is summed up by international expert, Dr. Elaine Ingham:

.

Without these bioorganisms, your plants cannot get the nutrients they need. So what you need is not more chemical soil additives, what you need is the proper balance of beneficial soil organisms.[77]

.

The drop in crop nutrient content could also be partly due to the introduction of cultivars, which are selectively bred plants. In any case, conventionally grown foods today contain less nutrients compared to the turn of the century. Organic is better, but still lags behind our evolutionary expectations. 

 

Juicing organic fruits/vegetables is a good way to increase nutrient intake; unfortunately, juicers with fast turning metal blades destroy the enzymes making the result less healthful, and many also have plastic parts. Norwalk type stainless steel juicers, with a slow turning masticator and separate hydraulic press are the best, though expensive. ‘Slow juicers’ are maybe the second best alternative, and some juices can be made with just a wooden press.

 Supplement with iodine, preferably in the form of potassium iodide.

Iodine is another supplement recommended by Dr Gerson. Iodine deficiency is widespread; if you do not eat kelp, or other iodine rich foods, then supplementation is quite important. Geographical location matters here, it is obvious that during the first stages of evolution we lived in an iodine rich environment. And generally, the further one lives from the coast, the less iodine in the soil. Many get iodine from iodised salt, so a stop to added salt will further reduce iodine intake. Maybe off topic, but it has been found that many salt manufacturers do not add sufficient iodine in any case, so the unfortunates whom consume a lot of salt will not even get that benefit.

.

Iodine is a fluoride antagonist, and has protective functions with regard to the thyroid and tumours/fibroids, especially those connected with reproduction. Given its evolutionary significance, it would not be surprising if a number of metabolic and immune processes depended upon iodine, for example a study found that both hydrogen peroxide and iodine were necessary for an immune response to Candida [84].

.

According to the Japanese Ministry of Health and Welfare, the average daily intake of seaweed is 4.6 g. At an average of 0.3 % I content (range = 0.08-0.45%), the estimated daily intake of iodine is 13.8 mg. Potassium iodide can be bought as a powder, and mixed with distilled water for a 5% solution (5 g/100 ml water). At 5% concentration one 0.05 ml drop will give 3.5 mg potassium iodide (KI). Around 75% of the KI is iodine, so 3 drops/day would give 10.5 mg KI or 7,8 mg iodine, around half the approximate intake of a Japanese citizen who eats 4.6 g seaweed/day.  I use somewhat more, and information on higher dosing amounts can be found here

.

Note that even 8 mg is much in excess of the Western RDA of 300 ug/day, and at 8 mg/day around 0.1% may suffer from iodism (iodine poisoning). If any symptoms present (thirst, diarrhoea, weakness, convulsions), then cut down the number of drops used. .

 Supplement with very diluted food grade (FG) hydrogen peroxide (H2O2).

Coastal water contains between 2 to 5 ppm (parts per million) hydrogen peroxide (H2O2); it is Nature’s disinfectant, also found in fast moving rivers and streams. Noting that stagnant water is never fast moving. Hydrogen peroxide kills pathogens in the rivers the same way it kills them in the body, by oxidation. Hydrogen peroxide is naturally a very stable and unreactive molecule [85], until it meets iron (or other transition metal ions), else UV light that is. When that happens three things simultaneously occur; both a hydroxide ion (OH) and a hydroxyl radical (OH*) are created, whilst the ferrous iron (Iron(II)) that instigated the reaction with the hydrogen peroxide is transformed into ferric iron (Iron(III)). 

 

The hydroxide ion is the definition of alkalinity, noting hydroxide ions are also used by the Tissue Tensegrity Matrix to replace the hydrogen ion (H+). It is the hydroxyl radicals; however, that do the business – they are highly reactive, above even fluorine as free radical oxidisers. They basically instantaneously grab the first electrons in their path, regardless of whether the electrons belong to an important bodily molecule, such as in a protein, cellular/organelle membrane or DNA, else a pathogen. Excess vitamin C is especially dangerous in this situation, since it will turn the resultant ferric iron back into ferrous iron, allowing the continuous creation of hydroxyl radicals.

.

The cells generate large amounts of H2O2 during normal operation, mainly from the mitochondria due to either superoxides being neutralised by superoxides (SODs), else from the beta-oxidation of fatty acids (Figure 23). It might sound scary; however, the cells have excellent ways of dealing with it. Maybe the best known is the enzyme catalase, it is this that causes bubbling if a too high concentration H2O2 is, say, swallowed, or put on a wound. So, if you see the bubbling, it does not mean the H2O2 is ‘working’, just that it is being neutralised, at least to safe levels.

 

Peroxisomes, which are organelles contained in the cytosol of most cell types, also produce large quantities of H2O2, mainly a result of the beta-oxidation of very long chained fatty acids:

.


.

Catalase is highly concentrated within the peroxisomes. It has one of the highest turnover numbers of all enzymes; one catalase molecule can convert millions of hydrogen peroxide molecules to water and oxygen each second: [86]

.

.

Catalase and H2O2 are also used to detoxify certain substances, such as phenols, formic acid, formaldehyde, and alcohol:

.

.

Therefore, liver and kidney cells have a disproportionate number of peroxisomes, as do brown fat cells. However, nearly all cell types have some, it is thought that peroxisomes were left over from the oxygen handling organelles, which existed before mitochondria [87]. Other enzymes, particularly peroxiredoxins, are also used specifically to breakdown H2O2, though unlike catalase they need to be ‘recharged’ before they can continue functioning. Sulphur compounds reduce the oxidised peroxiredoxins, enabling them to keep working as they transform hydrogen peroxide into water.

.

The accepted hydrogen peroxide protocol has a maintenance dose of around 300 ppm, 3 times a day. The problem is that H2O2 can react to substances other than iron, for example fats and vitamin C (in the presence of transition metals). Therefore, it is important to leave at least one hour before mealtime and/or at least three hours after. This is difficult, personally, I just take it in the morning with around 1 litre distilled water, and leave around an hour before 25-45 g tree nuts and 3 raw eggs. 

 

It is not a bad idea to take a mix of tree nuts every day or so, though special care should be taken with regard to brazil nuts. In a single study, brazil nut selenium concentration ranged from 0.03 to 512 µg/g, a substantial difference. At the highest concentration, a single serving of brazil nuts (around 6 whole nuts) could result in a selenium intake of 14515 µg, much higher than the recommended daily amount (RDA) of 55 µg. Selenium toxicity can be damaging, symptoms of selenium toxicity include loss of hair and nails, digestive issues and memory difficulties [88].

.

The minerals found in nuts, specifically copper, zinc and manganese are used to construct enzymes known as
SODs (Superoxide Dismutase). Ironically, SODs have one task; to transform highly reactive superoxides (O-2) into hydrogen peroxide and molecular oxygen at rates billions of times faster than would naturally occur [89]. If hydrogen peroxide were so toxic, why would we make so damn much of it? Interestingly, people and mice lacking catalase, do not seem to take much harm, neither do mice react badly if their glutathione peroxidase is removed [90]

 

This suggests that high hydrogen peroxide levels are not nearly as dangerous as high superoxide levels, in fact mice and humans lacking mitochondrial SODs die pretty quickly [91] Even so, I am not trying to say that high intracellular concentrations of hydrogen peroxide are good over the long term, for at least two reasons. Firstly, it has been shown that cells subjected to low levels take less long-term damage, than those with constantly high levels. Secondly, it has recently become apparent that H2O2 is an important signalling molecule, possibly the most important redox signalling molecule [92]. It is clear that from a signalling perspective, a constantly low level of H2O2 is as undesirable as a constantly high level.

.

Taking hydrogen peroxide orally dramatically improves blood and tissue oxygenation. It used to be thought that this was due to the oxygen contained in the H2O2; however, the oxygenation levels are increased by much more. The only conclusion can be that the hydrogen peroxide also stimulates the body’s systems with regard to oxygen handling. [93] In addition to accepting electrons from the electron transport chain (cellular respiration – Figure 23), molecular oxygen is also vital for collagen synthesis, specifically in the post-translational hydroxylation of proline and lysine residues [94]. So much so, it is thought that the increased environmental oxygen, which occurred in the late Proteozomic Eon, was instrumental in the development of large, metabolically active, animals. [95] A final point, mentioned in Get plenty of daily exposure to …, is that oxygen is a primary hydrophilic ion, allowing exclusion zones to grow around tissue, and other biological surfaces.

.

It has to be food-grade (FG) hydrogen peroxide, and diluted only with distilled water. 2ml of 3% H2O2 in 250ml water would give 240 ppm, which is the maintenance dose recommended by holistic practitioners. To put this into perspective, even if all the 250ml of this magically enters the bloodstream, which has a water content equal or greater than 2.7 litres, it would dilute to around 22 ppm. Ok, hardly scientific, but even if the bloodstream concentration itself was raised to 240 ppm, it would not cause too much damage to the red blood cells, even after long periods. The referenced study found a 1.3% lipid breakdown after the RBCs were exposed to 340 ppm H2O2 over 60 minutes. [96] 

 

In any case, red blood cells are very good at safely removing excess H2O2, quickly turning this supposedly toxic substance into molecular oxygen. Thanks to human erythrocyte catalase (HEC) in the red blood cells, we can literally breath hydrogen peroxide; thanks to HEC in the plasma (from old, hemolysed red blood cells), catalase can be transported throughout the body, for example to places of inflammation, where the catalase can then help neutralise any high levels of immune driven hydrogen peroxide. [97] Though this would go badly wrong if the H2O2 levels became too concentrated, resulting in excess molecular oxygen (around 2% of all molecular oxygen breathed is dissolved in the bloodstream, 98% is bound to hæmoglobin). Too much molecular oxygen in the bloodstream is not good, and may trigger an embolism.

.

New data are showing that the covid virus attaches only to ACE2 receptors, which are found on many cellular membranes. Oral mucosal cells, such as found at the back of the nose, or top of the tongue, express ACE2 receptors, lungs have about double the oral number, the heart and colon have 5 and 7.8 times greater ACE2 expression respectively.

 

A protocol first developed 30 years ago by Dr. Farr consists of a series of intravenous hydrogen peroxide treatments, and is highly effective against various respiratory conditions; from viral infections to COPD. Injection into a vein is not easy for most, and so Dr. T. Levy has updated the protocol, instead recommending a nebuliser or inhaler. Nebulising 3% FG hydrogen peroxide will inactivate the virus, hopefully allowing the body to recover. [98] Previous research on vapourised H2O2 shows that a 0.5% concentration will completely inactivate the viruses tested, so it can be assumed that a 3% concentration will blast the covid to oblivion.[99] Dr. Levy points out that the concentration can be lowered in case of discomfort, but that 3% should be easily tolerable for most. 

 

Since intestinal epithelial cells appear to present large numbers of ACE2 receptors, drinking something that could weaken the virus, may also be a good option. The maximum recommended therapeutic dose is around 0.18%; for example, a mix of 15 ml 3% hydrogen peroxide with 250 ml distilled water.

 

It is worth mentioning that a proportion of covid patients suffer from so-called ‘happy hypoxia’, in other words they have asymptomatic hypoxia. I’m not sure exactly how many manifest silent hypoxia, however 15-30% of patients go on to develop acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).[100] Technically, respiratory patients suffer from low oxygen saturation in the haemoglobin (hypoxemia), rather than in blood and tissues (hypoxia). In extreme cases, people with only 50% arterial oxygen saturation (SaO2) are behaving quite normally, rather than collapsing on the floor, as they should be. While the blood gas tests to determine SaO2 are complicated, SpO2 (peripheral oxygen saturation) can be easily checked with a pulse oximeter attached to the fingertip. In general, less than 96% SpO2 may indicate hypoxemia; if a pulse oximeter is not available, the breathing rate can be measured, if over 20 breaths per minute, then ‘silent hypoxemia’ might be the cause. Regardless of respiratory infection, deep breathing, especially prior to sleeping, and on awakening, is a good idea.

.

Food grade hydrogen peroxide also works as an effective, and very environmentally friendly, general disinfectant; furthermore, it also makes a very powerful (12 hr.) deodorant at 3% concentration, at least in my case. Since the only atoms present, are also present in water, it will be safer than the often toxic ingredients in store bought deodorants, or the even worse antiperspirants. After all, one of the major roles of the lymphatic system is to eliminate poisons from the body, such as heavy metals; blocking the lymph cells that help connect this ‘sewer system’ to the outside world, hardly seems like a good idea. The bottom line is that hydrogen peroxide seems to blast the odours to oblivion, rather than just masking them.

 Try to avoid using sunscreens, except for non nano-sized nitric oxide, or other safe mineral based alternatives.

The chemicals in non-mineral sunscreens may be very hazardous. A Clinical Trial by the U.S. FDA [101] shows six common active ingredients in sunscreen ingredients – avobenzone, oxybenzone, octocrylene, homosalate, octisalate, and octinoxate – are absorbed into the blood at levels that could potentially pose serious health risks. In a trial of 48 people, the participants undertook thirteen sunscreen applications over a 4 day period, each covering 75% of the body. Blood samples were taken for 21 days, and it was found that the concentration of all 6 chemicals increased up to day 4, and by day 7 the concentrations still exceeded the FDA safety levels. Even after 21 days, two of the chemicals, homosalate and oxybenzone were still above the safety levels.

.

A Danish study, investigated the relationship between the UV filters in sunscreen and male infertility. They found that 7 of the 31 allowed UV filters in the US/EU caused a progesterone mimicking effect, including octisalate, avobenzone and homosalate. [102] This could, at least partially, explain the dramatic drop in sperm counts among men living in Western societies, which have, according to a study undertaken at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, more than halved over the last 40 years. [103] 

 

Another contemporary study found neurotoxic damage in rats and human cells, among other problems, from various sunscreens, including zinc/titanium oxide nano particles. [104] Additionally, according to research by Matsuoka et al., 1987, sunscreens also drastically reduce vitamin D3 synthesis in the skin; sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 8 based on the UVB spectrum decreases vitamin D synthetic capacity by 95%, and SPF 15 decreases it by 98%. This assertion is qualified later in the paper [105]:

.

However, emerging evidence suggests that although sunscreens are effective, many may not actually be blocking UVB because they are improperly or inadequately applied. Thus, sunscreen use may not actually diminish vitamin D synthesis in real world use, although further study is needed

.

In other words, the only way to get vitamin D3 through sunscreen is to not apply it properly. So why should we apply toxic substances to our skin? In past centuries people have, at various times, worn less clothing, and been more exposed to the sun, yet skin cancer was incredibly rare. Ozone cannot stop UVA, meaning the massive increase in UVA skin cancers over the last decades cannot be explained away by ‘holes in the ozone layer’. It is also the case that indoor workers have higher rates of melanoma (CCM) than outdoor workers [106].

.

What is true for skin cancer is true for all cancers; if the immune system, or metabolism, is compromised, cancer, or any other disease becomes much more likely. Otherwise, a healthy immune system can easily kill, or contain, cancer cells, and given the right circumstances repair chronic damage that the most skilled surgeons, or other conventional medical interventions, could only dream of. To the sceptics, remember what Conventional Medicine swore, over decades, time and time again? That the immune system could not under any circumstances cure cancer, and to even suggest such a thing was pure quackery. All of a sudden, they say the immune system can cure cancer; who are the quacks now?

About Me

This has been written anonymously; not only am I a bit paranoid, but think that the message here is what’s important – not the messenger. The information given here is accurate, to the best of my knowledge. There are some speculative ideas, which hopefully have not been presented as fact. Since, though, my education is Electronics and Computing (Bsc.), I may well have misunderstood any of the concepts presented here, but again hopefully not. 

 

So yes, this could be seen as Yet Another Amateur Health Blog, and the last thing I want to do is put anyone at risk. Many of the suggestions could be just seen as ‘common sense’ such as safe sunlight exposure, drinking adequate amounts of water or walking outside barefoot. The dosing suggestions for the supplements are no higher than other, qualified people have recommended; certainly, nothing contained in here is immediately harmful, or I would be long dead. Still, it is incumbent on anyone trying any holistic therapy, to ensure themselves that any possible harm is vastly outweighed by the potential benefits.

.

There are various products shown in these pages, they are there solely because I use, or have used, them. I have no connection, financial or otherwise, to any company that produces these products.

 

I would much appreciate any feedback, especially concerning any factual errors, either in the text or diagrams. Thanks.

The Evolutionary Health Plan (EHP)

The suggestions here have been used by me, in some cases for decades; others though, have been taken up more recently. Even though the apparent health benefits of, for example, grounding or light therapy have been known from way back, the scientific basis underpinning these therapies has not been properly understood. This has changed, thanks to a number of enlightened and gifted scientists, such as Dr. S. Seneff who has discovered the specific way in which ultraviolet B, cholesterol and sulphur work synergistically to strengthen the cardiovascular system. Another scientist, Dr. Pollack has uncovered various mechanisms to explain the importance of infrared light’s reaction with water, and how it effects a number of bodily systems. Much of the research on grounding seems to have involved multiple researchers including G. Chevalier, PhD, S. Sinatra, MD, James L. Oschman, PhD. As far as the general health information contained in the EHP, much is sourced from Dr. Mercola, who publishes an informative, and well thought out, newsletter, nearly every day. The rest is what I’ve picked up over a few decades interest in this subject.

.

Finally I would like to address what, to many, may seem like obvious omissions. For example there is no particular reference to exercise, or sugar intake. As far as exercise goes, I do not think that hard exercise (think cross-fit) is either necessary or beneficial. It seems unlikely that primitive humans spent hours on a treadmill, or lifting weights. This is not to say that sitting about all day is good; gentle exercise such as squatting, jogging, standing or swimming, maybe together with some isometric routines, should be enough, though.

 

Sugar is not nearly as harmful as it appears to be. The problem is not sugar per se, rather if too many cells cannot take the glucose in. The glucose will then traverse the bloodstream, resulting in a possible diabetes II diagnosis. Healthy cells, though, can consume large amounts of glucose, as evidenced by the average child who seems able to eat substantial amounts without problems.  From an evolutionary perspective, certain groups of primitive humans, for example tropical islanders, lived on a mainly fruitarian diet for at least a couple of hundred thousand years. If sugar were so harmful, they would not have survived.

About Herxheimer Reactions

Many times, people undertaking alternative therapies suffer so-called ‘healing crises’, or Herxheimer reactions. These manifest with symptoms similar to those caused by the toxin the body is trying to throw off, else as an old trauma reappearing. Flu-like symptoms, headaches/general aches, itching, digestive disturbances, sweating etc. can be experienced; however, they should present relatively mildly and not last very long. Even if not sick, a Herxheimer reaction could be caused by any of the suggestions here, for example: grounding; high intensity infrared; hydrogen peroxide; MSM; distilled water(s) fast. The stock advice seems to be, to cut down, but not stop, the suspected therapy until the symptoms die down. Then resume slowly.

.

Most oxidative stress, at a cellular level, is caused by electrons escaping the electron transport chain before time, and then reacting with oxygen to create highly toxic superoxides. So, any therapy that increases mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation will cause a corresponding increase in oxidative stress, though in a healthy mitochondrion fewer electrons will escape the electron transport chain.

 

.

About COVID-19

Just as this was about to be finished, along came COVID-19. There are various mentions added throughout, to sum up:

.

Prophylactic Suggestions: The suggestions here, additionally Urine Therapy and Wet Cup Therapy may be beneficial. Prolonged fasting ‘renews’ the white blood cells, which is obviously useful when preparing the immune system for a shock.

.

Therapeutic Suggestions: Any of the above, plus nebulising food-grade hydrogen peroxide at 3% concentration. If not available, store-bought hydrogen peroxide can be used in an emergency.

.

In any event, relying on a workable vaccine being produced is highly optimistic, to say the least. Over the last decades, all attempts have failed. They have little trouble in provoking an antibody response, the problem is those antibodies are worse than useless; once the patient is exposed to the wild virus, they get severe symptoms often leading to death.

 

Known as Paradoxical Immune Response, the resultant ‘fake’ antibodies could also explain Viral Interference, wherein those exposed to, say, the flu vaccine tend to become more susceptible to other viruses. A study undertaken by the US Department of Defense showed a 36% increase in coronavirus infections, in those that had previously been vaccinated for the flu.[107] In any case, a healthy immune system should easily supress most pathogens, long enough for the body to start producing its own antibodies. For this to occur, a robust population of natural killer (NK) and cytotoxic T (CD8+) cells, together with a well functioning cardiovascular system, is essential; the fact that so many are succumbing to covid-19 points to sickly Western populations, with damaged immune systems.

About Al-hijamah Style Wet Cup Therapy

Without going into too much detail, it should be the Al-hijamah method of Wet Cup Therapy (WCT), wherein the skin is only scarified to around 0.1 – 0.2 mm depth, using short (1-2mm) ‘incisions’ [108]. This allows for a high efficiency filtration process to take place, expelling heavy metals and other so-called causative pathological substances (CPS), as depicted in Figure 18.

.

Al-hijamah requires a three-step process:

.

1.A disposable cup is placed on the disinfected skin, and a vacuum is created by pumping the air out. Doing this also provides an analgesic effect during step No. 2 – it really does!?! 
 
2.After around 5 minutes the cup is removed, the skin disinfected again, after which scarifications are performed on the epidermis.
 
3.The cup and vacuum are reapplied for a further 5 minutes, during which time interstitial fluid containing CPS, and especially the CPS that has been filtered from the fenestrated skin capillaries, is sucked out into the cup. No intact red blood cells (RBCs) will be present, providing the capillaries are not damaged; however, old haemolysed RBCs will be mixed in with the other pathological substances. Therefore, if properly practised, Al-hijamah WCT is not technically ’blood-letting’, maybe ‘toxic plasma-letting’ would be a more appropriate description.
 

Al-hijamah has traditionally been used to fight various ills, including fever, and has been shown in at least two studies, to dramatically increase the number of cytotoxic T cells (CD8+) and Natural Killer (NK) cells.[109] These attributes, together with the decrease in iron overload, may be a big help when fighting a novel virus, or even malignancies come to that.   

 

It can also be self-administered, though, maybe unsurprisingly, it is easier to do on others than oneself. Without any proof, it is likely that primitive humans were much more prone to injury than we are. Furthermore, it is unlikely they were as skilled at stemming the flow of blood. This could provide the basis for evolutionary benefit, as well as explain the extreme popularity of medical bloodletting, throughout the centuries as well as throughout wildly different cultures.

About Urine Therapy

Urine therapy (UT) consists of injecting, introducing, drinking or massaging the patient’s own urine, into their body. The healing effect is much amplified if prolonged fasting is practiced simultaneously, which is known as a distilled waters (DWs) fast. Urine therapy has been practiced for at least 5,000 years, and during that time many different regions and cultures have made use of the therapy. There are literally hundreds of first-hand testimonials/case studies, many from people who were in a dire state prior to trying UT. The healing effects claimed, are pretty amazing, both in the range of conditions treated as well as the speed with which they resolve. There are a number of books written on the subject, which are also pretty compelling.[110]

.

Personally, I’ve witnessed a rather bad infection cured in hours by topical/oral use, as well as a case of regaining voice in a day or two, after 2-3 months loss. I, and many others, have also found UT useful in the case of general ailments such as colds and flu, as well as superficial injuries like burns, stings etc., decreasing both symptom severity and healing time. It is obviously a controversial therapy, and in my experience people aren’t too happy to talk about it. Nevertheless, given that it is free, and can do no harm, why not try? How do I know it can do no harm? Because urine is literally filtered blood; if the urine were very toxic, then the body it came from would likely be dead. 

 

There are exceptions, for example someone suffering arsenic poisoning would expel most of the arsenic through the urine, though other toxic metals are not let through to the same extent by the kidneys. Those taking prescription medication, or recreational drugs, should be wary. Though having said that, recreational drug users at least can ‘recycle’ part of the drug through ingesting urine, saving money and reducing negative effects in the process. It is also the case, that the amniotic fluid surrounding human fetuses in the womb is essentially urine. This means that we have all drank, and breathed, ‘urine’ for around 9 months. 

 

I would strongly recommend people to research this therapy, especially those who are exhibiting covid symptoms. An excerpt from the book ‘Harald W. Tietze, Urine The Holy Water’, explains the success of urine therapy during the 1918 United States Flu Pandemic: [111]

.

The delegate from South Africa, Credo Mutwa, had a very interesting story to tell. Mr. Mutwa said that 70 years ago urine therapy saved thousands of lives in South Africa. Not many people remember the terrible ‘flu at the end and after the first World War. This flu claimed around 100 million lives, many times the loss from the war itself. He said:

”A man had two women, a black one and a white one. These women cared for the people infected by the ‘flu and eased their suffering in the few days until they died and buried the dead. Anyone else who had worked so close to infected people would have got the ‘flu themselves but not these two women. They told others to start urine therapy, the only protection against the killer disease. The word spread and many thousands started the treatment. Not one, not one of the people drinking their own urine died”.

 

.

The Cost

Apart from the UVB, and possibly the infrared, the essential items on the list are quite inexpensive. Producing distilled water may not be cheap, but less expensive filtering methods can be employed. 

 

A grounding strap to the leg will keep you grounded whilst sleeping, and the grounding strap itself can be homemade out of any type of conductor. Then make the ground connection using wire (with safety resistor, if wanted) and a crocodile clip, which can then be attached to: grounded water pipes; a home-made grounding rod, or the house ground. It costs nothing to walk barefoot, but is often impracticable, and grounding shoes are hard to come by. The Reebok shoes cost about €101 including postage, but not including EU duties. An alternative is to use a grounding strap that can be used with any shoe (€12). In all cases, conductive socks (€13) are required. A cheaper alternative might be leather soled shoes, coupled with woollen or cotton socks, though the connection to earth will not be as strong as with conductive shoes.

.

The suggestion concerning organic food specifies ‘where possible’, and if buying all organic is not an option, then it might be possible to grow some basic vegetables in a garden or allotment, else to find a farm that doesn’t use the most poisonous fertilisers/herbicides, such as phosphate/glyphosate, and keeps grass fed animals. It seems, though, that recently there is much more organic produce, and the cost is not as prohibitive as it was a decade or so ago. In fact, where I live there is now only a small percentage difference between organic and non-organic in the case of milk, eggs and some vegetables such as carrots.

.

As for the supplements, the cost depends on the dosage. For example, 1 kg of MSM costs €39. At a dose of 2*2.5 g per day, 1 kg would last 200 days. Stopping salt could allow a noticeable reduction in food intake, plus the salt doesn’t have to be bought in the first place. Cholesterol, collagen, choline and sulphur, together with other valuable nutrients, can be gained from fresh eggs. Organic eggs may not be much more expensive than conventional ones. Drying and crushing the shells provides a calcium supplement that is safer, and certainly cheaper, than store bought alternatives.

.

Therapeutic near infrared (NIR) lamps, for example the Philips high power version costs €178, it also uses 650W of electric power. NIR bulbs (around 150W) can be bought singly, and rigged together. Replacing domestic lighting with halogen bulbs is not necessarily prohibitively expensive. 

 

The ultra violet b (UVB) requirement for more or less year long, daily exposure is likely problematic; there are few, if any, places in Europe where there is enough sunlight. The Sperti lamp costs (inc. 25% offer, which they seem to repeat) €642 including postage and EU duties. The tubes last 1000 hrs., and cost €77 in the US. It is also possible to home make a solution, for example with the ‘G15T8E 15W Germicidal UV-B Fluorescent Lamp’. They are reasonably cheap, and the spectrum looks okay, unlike some UVB tubes meant for reptile houses; which may emit dangerous UVC radiation.

 

Depending on where you live, the chances of getting a doctor prescribed vitamin D lamp are probably not so good. However, if you can show a low vitamin D level, and supplementation doesn’t help, then a vitamin D lamp is a medically accepted way to improve the levels. The Sperti Lamps are FDA approved for improving low vitamin D. Tanning beds can also be used, but make sure they use tubes that also emit UVB. This used to be the case, but now they often omit UVB; outputting UVA only. Another problem with them, is that the 15 -20 minutes required each day is less than the time paid for, as well as the inconvenience incurred.
