In this newsletter, were going to talk about blood.
On the left picture below, you’ll see what is called sludged blood.
The cells are clumped together.
The result is blood that is thicker than it should be.
This is something called intravascular agglutination.
Do you suffer from intravascular agglutination?
On the right image below, you’ll see healthy blood, where the cells are now more evenly distributed.
The blood is now thinner, and healthier.
Years ago, Dr. Melvin Knisely discovered sludged blood in this fantastic study.
Dr. Knisely examined the blood of hundreds of animals and people.
He performed what is called an agglutination test.
He discovered that sludged blood occurred in people who had poor metabolism and disease.
In about 600 unanesthetized human patients diagnosed by practicing physicians as having a wide variety of pathologic conditions and diseases, we have seen the blood cells agglutinated into masses; this changed the blood from its normal, relatively fluid state, to a circulating sludge.
Dr. Knisley pointed out that this sludge blood did not flow easily into the tiny capillaries found all throughout the human body.
He discovered sludged blood in EVERY patient who suffered bacterial illness.
It was in every patient with typhus, measles, the common cold, and many more serious diseases.
He even found this blood clumping in people with alcoholism.
Sludged blood is found in every major disease, every major trauma, and every insult to the body.
What causes sludged blood?
What is intravascular agglutination?
Dr. Knisley didn’t know what cause sludge blood,
He only knew it was connected with so many disease states.
However, this study shows what could be the cause of sludge blood.
And the results have been verified by many other studies.
Blood becomes sludge when it contains high amounts of fibrinogen.
Fibrinogen is a type of protein that is used by the body to help form blood clots.
Free fatty acids cause sludged blood because free fatty acids cause the increase in fibrinogen.
Plasma fibrinogen is elevated in various stressful states and conditions in which active mobilization of free fatty acids (FFA) occurs
Many other diseases are caused by excessive free fatty acids.
Free fatty acids are nothing but fat that’s mobilized from fat cells and circulated into the blood.
There are plenty of things that release free fatty acids into the blood.
Excessive exercise releases free fatty acids.
Fasting releases free fatty acids.
Smoking tobacco causes the secretion of free fatty acids.
It seems wise to diminish the amount of circulating free fatty acids in your body.
So, how can you eliminate sludged blood?
The most common fixes for free fatty acids are eating sufficient carbohydrates frequently.
It’s important not to miss meals.
Be careful not to exercise far beyond your existing physical capacity.
Aspirin dramatically cuts down on circulating free fatty acids.
Niacinamide also lowers the circulation of free fatty acids.
These lifestyle changes can thin your blood, and allow your blood to circulate more easily.
This may lower blood pressure as well, and lead to a host of other health benefits.
