Rivers of Life and Death
Dehydration, Blood Chi, Zeta Potential, Mercury. Aluminum, Vaccines, Vitamin C
In humans, the three most common factors that reduce the carrying capacity of the blood are bulk stress from dehydration, aluminum toxicity, and electrolyte imbalance.
The significance of proper blood circulation can not be over emphasized. The ability of our heart to pump blood throughout our body efficiently and effectively is the cornerstone of good health. Unfortunately, there are things that interfere with our heart’s ability to effectively move blood through our veins and arteries with a lack of hydration being a basic backdrop to other aggressive insults that starve and damage other parts of the body due to poor circulation.
Dehydration (see ref 1 at the bottom) is one of the most overlooked and basic causes of disease.
The root cause of degenerative disease comes from the body being unable to keep up with basic physiological functions, which leads to greater wear and tear. When the body for any reason cannot deliver the necessary nutrients and carry away metabolic wastes we set up the conditions for serious chronic disease. Many problems in the vascular system can upset this vital life process and dehydration often underlies vascular deficiency. Dehydration is not thought of as degenerative disease but dehydration leads to deterioration damage, because nutrient and waste flows can be greatly diminished and even cut off at strategic points in the body.
Low level dehydration guarantees the initiation of chronic pathology of one type or another.
Sepsis, or what is known as blood poisoning, causes increased capillary stopped-flow, loss of capillary density, and maldistribution of blood flow. In response to an injury or infection, the immune system deploys an arsenal of biological and chemical weapons to annihilate bacteria or viruses. Immune cells called macrophages swarm into motion, devouring microbes and squirting out toxic substances to sterilize a wound. More cells pour in and continue to unleash lethal chemicals. The crossfire damages healthy tissues, which become inflamed—red, hot, swollen, and painful.
Sounds like a typical vaccine reaction. Generally the way vaccines work is that they contain a virus and substances called ‘adjuvants’ and preservatives (like mercury and aluminum) that kick the immune system into overdrive so that they go on the hunt for the viruses, eat ‘um up, and create antibodies against further infection. Unfortunately the immune system goes haywire and attacks what ever is in sight. The result can be an autoimmune disorder. When the immune system attacks the pancreas you have Type 1 Diabetes.
As we will see in its own section, ‘Aluminum’ is used in water treatment plants to cause materials to settle out of solution. It does this by reducing what is called zeta potential. In children’s bodies aluminum does the same thing, causing coagulation of the blood, and deposits and plaques in arteries, brain and throughout the body. Whoever thought of the idea of injecting heavy metals into children or anyone else should have been shot but the practice goes back to the early 1930s. The company that holds the most responsibility though is the Eli Lilly Company.
Hurting the blood more than they will ever know pediatricians and general physicians deliberately inject heavy metals into the blood stream. As we will see these injections often have an immediate effect on blood chemistry and blood thermodynamics starting with microvascular ischemic changes (see ref 2 at the bottom)
that sometimes ends in violent convulsive death for infants and young children. Most health care practitioners and doctors are not that aware of the blood and vascular system’s vulnerability especially when it is already compromised with slight to medium levels of dehydration.
Blood is a ‘colloid’ and in order to flow effectively, it must remain one, or clotting will occur from aggregation of its particles. - The colloidal properties of blood arise because its particles are immersed in a polar solvent/electrolyte solution, and surface charges have developed. They therefore have ionic characteristics and dipolar attributes, and are thus electrically charged. – Blood is a mixture of colloidal particles in a solution.
Colloidal particles dispersed in a solution are electrically charged due to their ionic characteristics and dipolar attributes. In colloid chemistry blood could easily be thought of as colloidal slurry and the principles that apply to any colloidal slurry or suspension also would apply to the blood. Each particle dispersed in a solution is surrounded by oppositely charged ions called the fixed layer. Scientists are able to measure these charges and call it the blood’s Zeta potential, which is a measure of the electrical force
that exists between atoms, molecules, particles, and cells in a fluid. Acupuncturists and oriental medical doctors refer to this energy as blood chi.
Positively charged colloids cause coagulation; negatively charged particles cause dispersion. In order for a mold, virus, bacteria or cancer cell to grow, they must colonize. High zeta potential stops colonization. - Dr. Thomas Riddick
This chi or electromagnetic energy is at the center of red blood cell behavior as well as microbial proliferation
. Zeta potential is the aggregate electrical charge of the blood colloid and this is controlled by pH and all the other elements found in the "soup". Zeta potential is the basis of blood’s colloidal properties. One of the greatest problems of low Zeta potential or low blood chi, which may be caused by higher acidity, is that toxins cannot be suspended for elimination or nutrients for absorption or transport to the cell, due to colloidal collapse and particle aggregation.
Zeta potential is a measure of the electrical force that exists between atoms, molecules, particles, suspensoids, cells, etc., in a fluid. Zeta potential is a scientific parameter that can be measured yet it directly corresponds to the Chi of the blood.
Dr. Thomas Riddick explains, “On a smaller scale, all trace metals, minerals, inorganic materials, proteins and amino acids are held in suspension not solution in liquids by an electrical charge. These very small particles are called colloids and are too small to see with the naked eye. Since colloids in suspension form chemical compounds (like ions in solution), the electrical properties of colloids are generally ignored. In liquids, the ability 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 metals or more positively charged colloids dropping out of the liquid and coagulating.”
The most important factor that affects zeta potential is pH. The second most important factor is hydration.
The blood is 80 percent water thus hydration levels are extremely important in blood chemistry. Moderate dehydration, a 3-5% decrease in body weight due to fluid loss is sufficient to result in a substantial decrease in strength and endurance because of the decrease in oxygen carrying capacity of the blood signaling a drop in Zeta potential
. Viscosity represents the stickiness and thickness of blood. It is the frictional resistance to blood flow. As the blood viscosity increases, blood flow decreases assuming that the heart maintains the same systolic pressure.
Electrical force, blood pH and Zeta potential are parallel concepts but no matter which word you choose (even blood chi) the crucial point is that these electrical and thus magnetic characteristics (controlled by blood pH) strength determines the amount of material (nutrients, wastes) that our blood and lymph can carry. Increasing the pH 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. Acidic blood carries a positive charge, and alkaline blood carries a negative charge. One of the side effects of acidic blood is to reduce the negative charge of colloids (combinations of molecules held in suspension) causing them to fall out of suspension thereby coagulating on the walls of the arteries similar to scale forming in a pipe. When it happens in an artery we call it Arteriolosclerosis.
High pH leads to cleaner blood. Dehydration leads to acid blood condition and dirty blood.
As we can expect when blood becomes too acidic, driving down the zeta potential, 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 as acid foods, toxic (acid environments) acid emotions and even acid precipitating nutritional deficiencies all conspire to thicken our blood to the point it becomes more a sewer than a fresh flowing stream carrying life’s nutrients to the cells full of oxygen.
High negative charge is also bacterium-static. Negative charge dissipates. In order for a bacterium, virus, fungus or cancer cell to grow, it must colonize. High negative electrostatic charge stops colonization.
In this chapter we are going to show how much trouble is sourced in the blood and will pay especial attention to the immediate damage that is done when mercury and aluminum and other toxic poisons are injected directly into the blood. In this chapter we are going to find the brilliant work of Dr. Andrew Moulden who is taking his case to the Federal vaccine court in Washington. He has studied and mapped out what he calls a “MASS response”
in the medium to small vessels of the body revealing damage to the endothelial linings of the micro vessels, which become the foci of ischemic necrosis and hypoxic brain injury.
Spiral flow through the blood vessels not only moves a larger amount of fluid, but also it tends to clear out obstructions as it scours the vessel walls. When the concentration of particles in a liquid becomes too high, Zeta potential on colloids drops and spiral slow diminishes.
It is going to make our hearts sick to study and realize finally what is going on in so many men, women and children immediately after they have been vaccinated. He provides the missing link showing us that it is the vascular system that reacts first and this explains why there can be in infants spontaneous retinal bleeding, intra cerebral bleeding, ischemic brain damage and seizures strong enough to break bones. So violent can these seizures get that emergency room personal cannot tell the difference between vaccine damage and violent child abuse. Dr. Moulden says, “Unfortunately, the MASS response creates the same “pathognomonic signs” in vaccine adverse events as it does for children in need of protection.”
Researchers at Northwestern University have now shown how air pollution may cause heart attacks and strokes - by triggering the formation of blood clots. Dr. Gokhan Mutlu, the study's lead author and his colleagues found those tiny air pollution particles - often less than one tenth the width of a human hair in size - helped trigger clotting in the blood of mice. This is due to the pollution-induced secretion of interleukin-6, a pro-inflammatory cytokine, that has been implicated in the formation of blood clots. The heavy metals cadmium, lead and mercury are common air pollutants, being emitted mainly as a result of various industrial activities.

ref 1. The term dehydration commonly is used to denote intravascular fluid depletion. However, it is important for clinicians to understand that volume depletion is distinct from dehydration. Volume depletion denotes contraction of the total intravascular plasma pool, while dehydration denotes loss of plasma-free water disproportionate to loss of sodium, the main intravascular solute. The distinction is important because volume depletion can exist with or without dehydration, and dehydration can exist with or without volume depletion. In children with dehydration, the most common underlying problem actually is volume depletion, not dehydration. Intravascular sodium levels are within the reference range, indicating that excess free water is not being lost from plasma. Rather, the entire plasma pool is contracted with solutes (mostly sodium) and solvents (mostly water) lost in proportionate quantities. This is volume depletion without dehydration. The most common cause is excessive extrinsic loss of fluids. Pediatric patients, especially those younger than 4 years, tend to be more susceptible to volume depletion as a result of vomiting, diarrhea, or increases in insensible water losses. Significant fluid losses may occur rapidly. The turnover of fluids and solute in infants and young children can be as much as 3 times that of adults.
ref 2 After ischemia an incomplete return of blood flow has been reported in brain, kidney, skeletal muscle, and heart. The mechanisms responsible for the no-reflow phenomenon are perivascular edema, platelet or red cell plugs, and interstitial hemorrhage as well as leukocyte entrapment in capillaries. Leukocytes are large and stiff cells, which adhere to vascular endothelium naturally and are known to alter in their adherence properties under a variety of conditions. Skeletal muscle vasculature undergoes arteriogenesis to restore tissue perfusion and function following loss of blood flow. This process has been shown to occur in large vessels following ischemia, and recent studies suggest this may occur in the microcirculation as well. The recent refinement and computerization of intravital microscopy have permitted scientists to monitor microcirculation in vivo with minimal invasion. Video microscopy of red cell flow in capillaries at the surface of skeletal muscle provided the opportunity to quantitate ischemia-reperfusion (I-R) induced microcirculatory changes. The recovery of glomerular microcirculation seems to occur faster than that of peritubular capillaries. Scientists suggest that a functional vasculopathy develops very early in the course of ischemia-reperfusion in superficial cortical microvasculature and is more pronounced in peritubular capillaries, thus accounting for the development of patchy injury of tubular epithelia.
