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 talk more about later.

Riddick spent thousands of hours researching how zeta potential is influenced by the mix of pH factors and electrolyte concentration in liquid suspensions. Zeta potential fluctuates up and down dependent on the pH, the concentration of the electrolytes in the liquid, and the specific conductance of the liquid which relates right back to the electrolyte concentration. We use specific conductance as a measure of the ability of a liquid medium to conduct electricity. We measure specific conductance on a scale called mho (also called siemen).   

One thing I found fascinating with Riddick’s work was how zeta potential plays a role in all of life.  In “How You Rot & Rust”  elsewhere on this site, we mention how the colloids can have an urge to merge, how they merge and what they form into is all a function of the terrain to which they are exposed. (And they can also have an urge to disperse if charged properly.) Well guess what? In the blood the terrain is a mix or ratio of anions and cations and other non-ionic substances. Two of these non-ionic substances in the body would be alcohol and sugar. Too much here and you create a steric hindrance - steric pertains to the spatial relationships of the atoms in molecules - which means interference with ionic mobility and lessened zeta potential.

So as dietary habits affect the levels of anions, cations and other substances in the bloodstream, the interplay of all these things leads to an overall measure of zeta potential. If zeta potential goes down - that is the charge between colloids decreases - the colloids come together. If zeta potential goes up the colloids disperse. (Technically zeta potential is measured by the millivolt reading between colloids. This millivolt reading is expressed as a negative (-) number. The more (-) the reading, the greater the zeta potential. In blood the onset of agglomeration occurs at approximately -15mv and maximum dispersion is obtained at -100mv. )

Here is how Riddick illustrated the linking together of various polymers - the coming together of many different molecules - that might occur when zeta potential falls within various suspensions.

As I first viewed these images I thought gee, these are the types of forms that are often seen in blood. And sure enough it is so because the blood is a colloidal suspension directly under the influence of anions, cations, and non-ionic substances which all influence the charge of zeta potential and it is this charge which is the final factor which influences the merging together of the blood colloids.

Mysteries Yet to Unfold

As we discussed earlier, the variety of developmental forms of microbes under different terrain conditions is what Lida Mattman observed. The driving factor is the ionic and non-ionic mix or concentration of the medium, and the ultimate measurable control is zeta potential. I do not doubt that multiple microbial looking forms may arise within equal measures of zeta potential, the determining factor being the ionic/non-ionic mix of the medium or terrain in which the microbe exists.

When Guenther Enderlein made his observations of the endobiont, he was doing so from the framework of a biologist. He observed the pleomorphic nature of different fungal species in culture by varying their terrain, and observed the exact same type of forms in the blood by varying its terrain. This was all observation - and quite brilliant. DNA testing did not exist to correlate the theories. Today some preliminary work is being done on the observed forms in the blood and some of these things do not seem to correlate with Enderlein’s thought process. Then again there are flaws in our knowledge of DNA. There may be fungal links in the blood which will be uncovered, as well as links to “stealth pathogens”.  

Many mysteries are yet to unfold. What we know for sure is that the terrain is everything. When we are dead, microbes in our body turn us back to dust. When we are alive and view living blood under the microscope, the worse it looks, the worse off we are. The faster it degenerates on a microscope slide, the faster we are degenerating internally. Underlying all of this is the basic interplay of the electron - anions and cations. The measurement of their influence is zeta potential. Increase zeta potential and the blood looks and acts healthier, decrease zeta potential and it’s just the opposite.

Silent Clots

James Privitera, M.D., wrote the book “Silent Clots - Life’s Biggest Killers”.  He would like to see live blood microscopy in every emergency room to evaluate all stroke and cardiovascular patients as well as others with acute medical conditions to determine the presence of clotting. Clotting can clearly be seen in live blood under the microscope through platelet and red blood cell aggregation. It is a clear sign that zeta potential has fallen and life is threatened.

Studies that Dr. Privitera has conducted are telling. Out of 45 patients studied with circulatory complaints, all had recognizable clots bigger than the size of two red blood cells.  31 out of the 45 also tested with abnormal cholesterol HDL levels. In a study of 28 patients with angina, 27 of those, or 96%, showed significant platelet clotting.

In eighty percent of the heart attacks, the individual does not experience prior chest pain. If live blood microscopy were performed as part of a routine check-up, it seems likely this potential for heart attack would be picked up early. Dr. Privitera would like to know why this method is not widely used and the fact that it isn’t he finds utterly amazing.

Disease Reprieve

Dr. T.C. McDaniel, D.O., was 56 years old many years ago and he was having definite cardiovascular problems. His heart was constantly skipping beats. He went to the best heart experts in the field, and they could not help him. He searched for answers and then stumbled upon the concept of zeta potential. It was a revelation. Blood, which is a suspension, begins to sludge as zeta potential falls, and zeta potential is directly related to the mix of anions and cations and non-ions in that suspension. Armed with this information, he mixed up and took his own “anionic surfactant”, drank more pure water, eliminated the bad cations from his diet, and his PVCs disappeared.

You’ll recall when we talked about molecular reality that the anionic substances with higher valence like 1:2 and 1:3 etc. have a greater dispersing effect. So if one were to take a proper amount of something like potassium citrate which is a 1:3 electrolyte and mix it in pure distilled or reverse osmosis water and drink it up, that would act like a dispersing agent for the blood stream. And so it is.

Dr. McDaniel wrote a book “Disease Reprieve - Living Into the Golden Years” that illustrates the knowledge he uncovered and how he has put it into practice. Today as I write this at the end of 2001, Dr. McDaniel is 87 years old and is still active with a thriving cardiovascular-renal practice. He shows people how to eliminate cardiovascular problems in their life. How to eliminate kidney stones in about 5 hours without any surgical intervention whatsoever, and how to never have them return. This is knowledge which is not taught in medical school and is unlikely to be taught there anytime soon. If your doctor has this knowledge it is likely he learned it through extra-curricular training like the type Biomedx offers or from other more “natural” health oriented outlets. Let me give you some more insight on this.
