Colloids (metals and minerals) are held in suspension via a very slight negative electrical charge on the surface of each particle. Like charges repel each other. This is called zeta potential. Blood is a colloidal solution, and all blood cells have a slight negative charge.
Zeta potential is a measure of the electrical force that exists between atoms, molecules, particles, and cells in a fluid. Zeta potential's strength determines the amount of material (nutrients, wastes) that fluids such as your blood and lymph can carry. Increasing the electrical force in the solution allows the fluid to dissolve and hold more material. In this way, more nutrients can be carried throughout your body and accumulated deposits of waste can be removed.
When the zeta potential is too low, blood begins to coagulate. This is a condition known as intravascular coagulation. Blood becomes a sludge that is increasingly difficult for the heart to pump, and decreasingly effective at performing the usual functions of blood. "Blood sludge" is widespread in the population (more than half the population will die from heart problems).
Intravascular coagulation is clearly visible in the blood vessels of the eye when viewed under relatively low level (60x) magnification.
Blood is in constant motion at constant temperature and the pH of blood is fixed at 7.35 to 7.4, but its concentration of electrolytes is not fixed, and the electrolytes directly affect the zeta potential.
"So long as the Zeta Potential (ZP) of the system remains constant, the fluidity (viscosity) of the system will also remain constant. But if the ZP of the system is progressively lowered by the introduction of cationic electrolytes or polyelectrolytes, then the stability of the system will undergo progressive changes — from simple agglomeration to fluid gel formation — and finally to a rigid gel." - Thomas M. Riddick
One lab found that best results in reducing intravascular coagulation were obtained by drinking 8 glasses per day of water with a mix of potassium citrate and potassium bicarbonate added sufficient to raise the pH of the water to 8.0 to 8.4. The minerals MUST be taken with the water in order to be effective, because intravascular coagulation is also related to insufficient water intake. Potassium works better than sodium to reduce intravascular coagulation, in fact too much sodium in the diet is part of the problem. The lab recommends that everyone replace table salt with a mixture of 60% potassium chloride and 40% sodium chloride to better reflect the potassium/sodium balance found in foods. Forty to fifty percent of the people examined by this lab had significant blood coagulation.
To increase your zeta potential you must avoid aluminium. Aluminium is used in water treatment plants to cause materials to settle out of solution. It does this by reducing the zeta potential. In your body aluminium does the same thing, causing coagulation of your blood, and deposits and plaques in your arteries, brain and throughout your body. Aluminium is found in municipally treated water, cooking utensils, vaccinations, non-clumping salt and baking powder, antiperspirants, antacids, drugs (read the label carefully), soft drinks and other canned goods where the plastic liner has cracked during sealing, and in other unexpected places.
The ability of a liquid to carry material in suspension is a function of these minute electrical charges. As the negative charge increases, more material can be carried in suspension. As the charge decreases, the particles move closer to each other and the liquid is able to carry less material. There is a point where the ability to carry material in suspension is exceeded, and particles begin to clump together with the heavier particle materials dropping out of the liquid and coagulating.
Positive charged ions decrease carrying capacity (ZP) while negative charged ions increase it.
Water has a slight negative charge.
As zeta potential decreases, the heavier metals generally come out of solution first and tend to stay in the body.
Reduced zeta potential can manifest as symptoms of degenerative disease like osteoporosis. The cause being reduced carrying capacity or reduced ZP, which destroys the blood's ability to carry minerals in suspension to bone.
Effect of pH
PH 7 is balanced, equally alkaline and acid. As pH becomes more acid (down to pH 3) carrying capacity (ZP) decreases. As pH becomes, more alkaline (up to pH 11) carrying capacity (ZP) increases. This varies a great deal depending on what elements are in solution.
Effect of Electromagnetic RadiationCertain electromagnetic radiation frequencies decrease the carrying capacity. While there are many frequencies not yet measured, 60-cycle alternating current will produce a decrease in carrying capacity. Zeta Potential in AgricultureAluminium can destroy the zeta potential in agricultural soils, rendering the soil colloidal solution incapable of supporting plant life. It makes no difference how much nutrient is added to the soil, if water cannot carry it into the plant. Aluminium enters the colloidal solution when it is dissolved by excessive acidity in the soil. The response needed by the farmer is to add lime to the soil, increasing the pH sufficiently to remove the aluminium from the soil solution thereby restoring the zeta potential. The discussion and concern about acid rain is not an acid rain problem per se, but rather a problem of lowered pH from acid rain that leaches aluminium into the soil and reduces the zeta potential. The ions of aluminium get into surface water, reduce the carrying charge (zeta potential), and increase the surface tension creating a devastating effect on plants and forests. Clean Your ArteriesTo clean out your arteries you need to remove both the minerals and the fibrinogen that have been deposited on arterial walls due to low zeta potential. The minerals can be dissolved by raising the zeta potential of the blood. The fibrinogen can be dissolved by consuming enzymes, particularly bromelain (from fresh pineapple), or pancreatic enzymes plus bromelain.
· Blood that is not coagulated is better able to carry oxygen to the tissues.
· Increased zeta potential in the blood simultaneously increases the zeta potential in the lymph, which allows the lymph to dissolve accumulations of waste material throughout the body. This also helps prevent cancer.
Increasing your zeta potential accomplishes the following:
- your red blood cells are more effective
- your heart is able to pump blood more easily
- your blood and lymph are better able to carry nutrients
- your body is better able to dissolve and remove toxic deposits.
Physicians use EDTA chelation therapy to increase zeta potential and remove toxic heavy metals from the body. The increased zeta potential allows toxic deposits in the body to re-enter solution so that they can be removed by the kidneys, liver, and in the sweat, etc. A study in Switzerland found that people who had chelation therapy to remove lead from their body also had less cancer in later years.
