Clotting from the Bottom Up:
Ankle Edema, Venus Insufficiency, Deep Vein Thrombosis, Breathing Problems, Stroke.
Toxicity, Nutrients & Electrons
Clots are not just random things floating around in the blood but are part of systemic imbalances that develop gradually: toxins creating damage and lack of nutrients to detoxify and repair damage.
Clots are generally part of the short term process of repair, at best, but there are multiple reasons clotting may accumulate long term.
Symptoms often appear from bottom up and are due to obstructions in the flow of blood returning to the heart, generally referred to as deep vein thrombosis or clotting.
When blood flow through veins in the legs slows blood and fluids back up including in the lymph and can appear as edema in ankles and legs, and purplish pooling blood under the skin that is called venous insufficiency. There are other patterns like varicose veins that are more about capillaries breaking. I’m not going into all the symptoms patterns here only the overall root cause dynamic that is related to arteries, too.
The clotting process can spread up to the lungs, creating breathing problems.
The acute crisis of lung blood clotting is known as pulmonary embolism.
Heart attacks can be clots there, in veins or arteries.
Stroke is a clot in the neck or head.
Clots affect veins and arteries, but the initial symptoms are more likely to show up around vein circulation because that’s not facilitated by the heart pumping as it does for the arteries.
Vein circulation is blood returning from arterial capillaries and from the lymph draining interstial fluid around cells.
Venous flow depends on muscle and body movement and has one way valves so make it flow in a direction as it is squeezed or shaken, so to speak.
Clots are thought to interfere with the valves, sticking them open or closed (does anyone really know?) to impede flow that backs up as edema liquid draining from the lymph in particular. Then the lymph system can back-up, too.
In addition vessels and capillaries may be damaged and leaky contributing to the blood pooling purplish coloring.
Clots generally consist of blood cells clumping (thick blood) and plaques made of fibrin, calcium and oxidized cholesterol and I will explain what this means below
Three issues to address:
- Removing clots
- Removing toxins creating the damage the clots are attempting to repair
- Adding nutrients to detoxify, repair damaged vessels, and maintain blood flow at the right pressure
Breaking Down Clots
The first issue is breaking down clots, which needs to be done because this symptom can kill.
This is not a treatment guide just a general reference to figure out on your own, I don’t give recommendations.
Conventional treatments are blood thinners to break down fibrin or lower thrombosis, which is actually a two way regulatory process to find balance.
Perhaps the most popular natural treatment is use of proteolytic or protease enzymes that break down fibrin found in both the clumping of cells and plaques: lumbrokinase, nattokinase, serrapeptase, bromelain. These are also of interest in treating spike proteins.
We also need to get beyond “take this for that” and look at the root causes for prevention.
Root causes of toxins and nutrient deficiencies are no doubt creating other symptoms, too, so let’s find the connections.
Let’s look the components of the clots. I have not found a good overview of all these issues so here goes with simplified overview to provide a big picture by connecting a few dots:
Clumping of Blood Cells two components:
- Being stuck together with fibrin
- A lack of electrical charge to repel cell from each other called a zeta potential.
- Stop bleeding stop bleeding at wounds.
- Repair damage to tissues and form scar tissue as a temporary band aid until vessel walls, for example, can be repaired, with the components of collagen IV which they are.
Fibrin must be recycled when its job is done so as not to accumulate in excess by being digested with the active proteolytic enzyme plasmin created in the liver. Excessive fibrin suggests a lack of this enzyme and we have to ask why. Is the liver weak? Probably since the liver is responsible for much nutrient processing and detoxification that gets overloaded with toxic exposures.
One major aspect of toxicity is freed radical electron stealing, which helps account for the low zeta potential blood cells to repel each other and thus clumping. Stephanie Seneff has explained this. This form of blood thickening does not have a healthy function like the temporary fibrin fix, and is found systemically as low electron levels in the body.
Electron levels are actually the big picture of total body energy. Electrons are part of antioxidants or free radical quenchers and mitochondrial energy of every cell to perform all functions, so low electron levels of blood cells are just one sign. Dr Jack Kruse sees health in terms of the “net negative charge of the cell” where negative charge means more electrons.
Electron levels are also part of the problem of plaques
Plaques consisting of fibrin, oxidized cholesterol and or calcium can generally be understood are repair processes gone wrong due to nutrient deficiencies leaving them incomplete.
Excessive or under-utilized calcium deposits can occur through a lack of cofactor nutrients: magnesium, vitamins D and K, etc, as is well known. Calcium deposits can form aside from being a part of vessel plaques, like in between vertebrae as stenosis, while individuals simultaneously have osteoperosis: lack of calcium bones as calcium phosphate.
Cholesterol is still misunderstood in its role as a good essential nutrient beyond a simplistic “good and bad” cholesterol.
A key cofactor for cholesterol is sulfur to form cholesterol sulfate, which is actually part of blood vessel or endothelial linings that structures vessels and creates an electrical change the keeps blood flowing.
This electrical change also provides a conduit for electrons for blood cells and for mitochondrial energy. Read that again and let it sink in how big an issue this is.
Stephanie Seneff has written about cholesterol sulfate, including in her book on glyophosates.
Jack Kruse has also commented that LDL cholesterol is lacking sulfur and electrons.
Oxidized cholesterol means lacking electrons, either by directly being stripped of by free radical toxins, or as part of the body’s general lack of electrons and energy levels.
Cholesterol and sulfur work together with sunlight to form hormorne/ vitamin D and cholesterol sulfate, which are similar.
The form of D we need to fully utilize calcium is D sulfate, which is water and fat soluble.
This is superior to synthetic D and natural fat soluble only D.
D sulfate is created on the skin or found in dairy only, not fish oil.
On the skin hormone or vitamin D sulfate is created when the sun interacts with cholesterol and sulfur. Cholesterol is an antioxidant that donates an electron to protect against oxidation from UV while using UVB to make vitamin D. Cholesterol sulfate is also formed like this, but in other ways, too, explains Seneff.
Oxidized cholesterol is thus processed into cholesterol sulfate when there is enough sulfur, not deposited in the body as a problem.
Cholesterol sulfate is part of the theory of the electrification of water and blood using Gerald Pollack’s theory of exclusion zone water. This leads to Thomas Cowan’s new theory of cardiology that this electrification of water in the blood leads to circulation being primarily driven by an electrical change of the capillaries, with the heart as a back-up mechanism.
High blood pressure is the heart working harder to compensative resistance in capillaries due to low electron levels.
Low blood pressure is the heart running low on energy to compensate for the resistance due to low energy.
Some resistance may be from back-up from obstruction in venous system through the capillaries to the arterial input.
Blood circulation is a continuous flow system that is tightly coupled with repercussion of disruption anywhere in the system.
Sulfur deficiency is a problem and sulfur intolerance is an even bigger problem, which, of course results in deficiency of utilizable sulfur—I can’t solve your problem is comments.
Clots may result from:
Need to repair damage from toxins
Lack of recycling fibrin due to liver weakness leading to lack of plasmin
Cell clumping due to low energy as low electrons
Plaques that are missing nutrients to do the job and be utilized and recycled.
Clots indicate systemic problems with root cause in toxicity and nutrient deficiencies that will affect many other symptoms, too.
Clots are symptoms that need to be treated for faster results and because they can be fatal.
