Metabolic Acidosis

This is the condition where someone is systemically too acid. The extracellular plasma fluid has a low pH wherein the H+ concentration is high and the bicarbonate level is low. Just as in metabolic alkalosis, metabolic acidosis engages first the body’s acid-base second to second chemical buffering system, and if more assistance is required it …

Metabolic Alkalosis

In lieu of a case study, I’m just going to touch a wee bit on the topic of metabolic alkalosis. This is the condition where someone is too alkaline. Yep, too alkaline. The extra cellular space does not have enough acid. Recall that whenever we’re talking about “acid” this is only in reference to H+, …

Urine Therapy

Yep, urine for a surprise Dorothy, and no we’re not in Kansas anymore. Urine therapy can be a very effective healing modality. Sometimes when all else fails, urine therapy will turn a person around. We will be covering some of the reasons why this may be so, and in that regard will lightly touch on …

Measuring Body pH

Let’s see how measuring the pH of body fluids like urine and saliva can help you assess the body’s balance.  To recap, pH is the acronym of sorts for the potential of hydrogen.  It is a measure of the degree of saturation of the hydrogen ion in a substance or solution. (pH is a logarithmic …

Urine Dipsticks

The picture shown here is a can of urine dipsticks. This is a simple tool that can tell you if you are moving into a zone with certain homeostatic controls that will require your attention.   There are 100 thin strips in the can with reagent pads glued along the strip. Dip the strip completely …

Measuring Urine

When you look into one of our refractometers you will see a 0-32 Brix scale on one side, good for checking your fruits and veggies, and a specific gravity scale on the other which you can compare to the specific gravity reading on a urine dipstick. If you read the post on urine dipsticks you will …

Measuring Conductivity

First, what is conductivity? It is the measure of how well something conducts electricity. A conductivity meter which does such a thing consists of the meter component and an electrode component.  We’ll get back to discussing more on this a little bit later. Why is this measure important? It goes back to the concept of …

Measuring Fruit & Vegetable Quality

  This instrument is called a refractometer. When measuring fluids it gives us a way to measure the specific gravity of the fluid or the “weight” of all the complex elements that are within it. This weight can be measured on different scales, for example on a scale called specific gravity (SG) or on another …

Blood Typing

Have you ever seen blood under the microscope that looks like this?         Or like this?         Some may say this looks like a condition of hyperproteinemia Some may say this looks like pH is off and the cells are losing their zeta potential. Some may say it is …

The Story of Zeta Potential 1

This begins a series of posts that are basically out-takes from the Biomedx How You Rot & Rust book. They will shed light on the work of Dr. T.C. McDaniel as he clinically applied Thomas Riddick’s work which was discussed in Riddick’s textbook “The Control of Colloid Stability Through Zeta Potential.” In this series you …

The Story of Zeta Potential 2

Whenever we peer into the microscope to look at living blood, we inevitably come upon principles of chemistry and physics looking back at us. These principles are so core to existence itself that it seems odd that medicine has yet to incorporate these concepts in its practice and medical schools have yet to teach them …

The Story of Zeta Potential 3

More Pictures of Blood (sort of) Back in the late 1960’s Thomas Riddick who was an engineer and chemist, wrote the book  “Control of Colloid Stability Through Zeta Potential”. It was a masterful work which expressed all the nuances of zeta potential within colloidal systems and included insights into working with cardiovascular disease which we’ll …

How You Rot & Rust

At the physical level, disease and aging of the body is all about rotting and rusting. The rot is an underlying biological mechanism inherent in all earthly species and the rust is an oxidative process. Here we present some educational concepts with out-takes from our pre-training workshop. Note that this information often needs to be …

The pH Equation in Health

THE pH EQUATION in HEALTH According to many health researchers, total healing of chronic illness takes place only when and if the blood is restored to a normal, slightly alkaline pH. In case you missed it, let’s say it again… Total healing of chronic illness takes place only when and if the blood is restored …

Blood & Consciousness

Peering into the microscope and looking at live blood, you can see a reflection of cause and effect. When you’re not feeling well, your blood doesn’t look good. Often, the worse you feel, the worse it looks. When you get better, the blood also gets  looking better. Simple correlation. Make the blood look better, you’ll …

The Biology of Disease

Colloids are particles that measure .01 to .0001 microns in diameter (that’s about 4 hundred thousandths to 4 millionths of an inch.) It has been hypothesized by some that there is some point in space and time where the colloids of life (the smallest of particles capable of expressing biological life in the physical realm) …

Blood & Parasites

A Theory Differentiating Internal and External “Parasites” According to the theories of Enderlein, the colloids of life in your blood (i.e. protits) develop according to the terrain of the blood. At some stages of their development he said that they are outright pathogenic and parasitic and constitute the real fungus among us. He believed these …

Workshop Out-Takes

The prior related posts in this education section covered some key concepts relative to the rotting mechanism of the body. (It was an edited look at the first 30 pages or so of the 140 page book “How You Rot & Rust”.) The rotting mechanism of the body is the biological equation. The flip side …
