Deep Vein Thrombosis and PH

There is increasingly greater scientific evidence that body pH and free radical capacity is one of the greatest indicators of health ever known. It all started in 1935 when Otto Warburg was awarded the Nobel Prize for discovering the lack of oxygen as the cause of most diseases, particularly cancer.
Since then oxygen capacity and its related issues have been at the forefront of some of the most brilliant research to date. One of the major components of the health equation is pH. When diet, lifestyle and drinking habits combine into a net acidic gain, the pH of the tissues and the surrounding fluids will drop, along with the capacity to carry oxygen. Because the blood feeds the tissues and removes the waste and toxins, it tries to remove some of the metabolic acids from the body fluids and tissues. As a result the blood pH begins to drop which signals the body's natural buffering capabilities to kick in. The body draws alkaline minerals from the bones, organs and teeth to keep the blood as close to 7.365 as possible.
One of the most dangerous environments for the blood is flying, especially long flights at high altitudes.
Most people have an acidic lifestyle where they do not consume enough alkaline forming foods and beverages as a dietary choice. There is something about green things with leaves that repels people. As a result they are in a constant tug of war with the pH balance.
Combine the drop in pH which makes the red blood cells sticky and clump together from the air quality in planes, with the inactivity of sitting for long periods and you have a potentially lethal mix.
The air in older aircraft comes into the cabin interior by blowing over the motors and then inside. There doesn't seem to be any data available as to the content of carbon dioxide in the incoming air. Reports show that newer models of aircraft have improved air quality, but again there is no easily accessible imperical data.
CO2 is acidic and because it is transported by the blood, the blood becomes sticky and forms rolls, like stacks of coins called rouleaux. This is seen during a live-blood microscopy examination. When the red blood cells stick together in rouleaux or other clumping styles, they cannot flow through the capillaries and release oxygen to the cells. The blood cells can even get stuck in these small vessels forming blood clots. Larger blood clots can also form in larger blood vessels by this same stacking and clumping action. Aside from body terrain acidity, rouleaux blood can result from poor protein metabolism and leaky gut syndrome.
Deep vein thrombosis is a blood clot in a deeper, larger vein and is much more serious. Chronic, inappropriate dietary habits, combined with inactivity and possible increased CO2 levels provide a ripe avenue for sticky blood that has the potential to form serious blood clots.
Arterial blood is pumped by the heart and by special valves in the blood vessels to get the blood throughout the arterial system as quickly as possible. Venous blood return happens primarily by muscle action, by activity. The muscles, by moving, squeeze the blood along the veins towards the heart. As the blood is pushed along, one-way valves prevent the blood from sliding back too far. When you are very still, some of your venous blood can be more sluggish and tends to pool in the legs and feet. Many hours on an aircraft with sticky blood and very little movement is a recipe for cold extremities, fatigue, inability to concentrate and of course, blood clots or thromboses.
More acidic blood is also an opportunity for virus, bacteria, mold, fungus and yeast to thrive. Blood at its natural 7.365 is ideal for keeping your immune system alert and efficient. How many times have you contracted an illness after a flight? Chronic low level acidosis, as it is called, makes chronic body terrain acidity, the beginnings of chronic disease and ideal for blood clots to form.
Because everything in the body is either positively or negatively charged, we can see where the alteration of the electrical charge caused by an acidic state of the red blood cell membranes causes them to get sticky and clump together. The process actually creates more problems than just blood clots. It is much more difficult to transfer oxygen, carbon dioxide and metabolic acids, and to biologically transform into new cells.
We can use this information to reverse this acidic body terrain by using a specific strategy, particularly for a few days before you fly. Ideally your body terrain should be slightly alkaline through your lifestyle choices, including alkaline, ionized water with a pH of 8.0 to 9.5, depending on what your urine pH is. It should be 6.9.
If you don't "do" alkaline on a regular basis, then there is a solution, particularly before you fly. Because a thrombosis is caused by lowered antioxidant levels (the capacity of oxygen to eradicate free radicals), I suggest that you try the following recipe. If you already have phlebitis or you are prone to blood clots, you will notice it may take a couple of weeks to notice improvement in your condition.
Choose lemon or lime, whichever you prefer. You will need enough fresh lemons or limes to make 8 teaspoons of juice. Put the ingredients into a 12 ounce glass in the following order. Fill the glass half full of water (6 ounces). Add 8 teaspoons of fresh lemon OR lime juice. Add ¼ to ½ teaspoonful of baking soda and stir until the baking soda dissolves. DO NOT REMOVE THE FROTHING. Drink this mixture twice per day for a few days before your flight and a few days after your return. If you fly regularly, you can add this to your routine, while at the same time monitoring your urine pH with pH strips designed for this purpose, bought from a health food store.
This solution has the alkalinity and the Vitamin C for antioxidants that conditions your blood and makes it easier to keep it in a vital state and improving its ability to carry and dispose of oxygen, CO2 and dietary and metabolic acids. Alternatively, you can ask for club soda with a slice of lemon on the flight. Cheers and happy flying!By
