Many years ago, I did an astrological study
of oxygenation in which I tried to determine the many reasons
for poor lack of oxygen in the tissues. One could start with
very simple premises such as lack of air: people live in
devitalized cities or they spend too much time indoors where
the air is recirculated or they do not breathe deeply enough.
Secondly, they could be anemic. The red blood cells may lack
sufficient hemoglobin or they could be deficient in number.
We could go on and on, but I never factored in such possibilities
as rouleau or aggregating of erythrocytes or hemolysis due
to toxicity. I also never thought of blood parasites devouring
red blood cells or mold dematerializing them.
When I was in a clinic in Germany, I had
the opportunity to see how very different the causes of poor
oxygenation were from patient to patient. It was fascinating
to me, also interesting was the fact that so many years elapsed
between my first interest in this important issue and my
Identifying Causal Factors
It has always been clear to me that the more we know about
what is really wrong, the better our ability to make sound
medical choices. It will help tremendously if I put this
in a context patients can readily understand and appreciate.
Let us assume that a highly motivated patient has heard
of Warburg's work and wants to correct oxygen levels in his
or her blood. A very basic preliminary test would be to use
an oximeter to measure the oxygen level. You can buy a device
like this online, but it will not tell you why the oxygen
level is low. It will merely display a number. For the moment,
we will assume the number is less than optimal and the patient
wants to correct the problem.
In most instances, the patient would be given iron supplements.
They may or may not address the problem. This would depend
on whether the body was able to utilize the iron as well
as whether or not there is a more complex explanation for
the deficiency. Many patients end up taking food grade hydrogen
peroxide to increase oxygenation of their blood; others engage
in yogic breathing exercises. Some go to clinics that offer
hyperbaric oxygen treatments or oxygen infusions involving
the removal of blood and infusion of oxygen or ozone into
the blood and then a gradual transfusion back into the body
through a very tiny needle. All of these measures are "reasonable" but
will any of them actually work if there is mold in the blood
causing instant death of the blood or parasites that are
gulping a quarter of a cup a day of blood?
Now, I think you understand perfectly why having the ability
to zero in on the real cause of the weak oxygenation was
so exciting. In some cases, the explanation was very simple:
the body is not getting the nutrition it needs to build healthy
red blood cells. In other cases, the red blood cells were
so infected that they not only adhered to each other, but
they were deformed. In any event, it is very clear now why
taking a generic blood purification or blood boosting formula
may or may not address a problem adequately.
By this, I mean to say that while our Seneca
Elixir, the one used by the Canadian patient in the
example on this page, helped her tremendously, there is
no reason to believe that it is the right formula for someone
else. It probably would not hurt anyone, but if time and
effort is wasted by focusing on a possibility or probability
that is irrelevant, then one did lose some time and perhaps
Now that I have made a case for why one size does not fit
all, I would also like to urge patients to find what works
in the life-threatening situations in which people sometimes
find themselves. One rule I have is that if you are not getting
better, there is a good possibility, the treatment is not
working. It doesn't matter that it worked for someone else
or that it was recommended by someone reputable, improvement
is the main standard by which success and failure should
I know it is frustrating. I can present ideas and possibilities
that are not readily available. How do you someone who can
guide you through the processes that are important to you?
The answer is you keep looking, but you take responsibility
for assessing your responses and for determining the value
of the strategies in your situation. You can also discuss
this with your primary health care provider and agree on
a time table for evaluating responses in an objective and
This said, there are some general strategies that work for
many people. For instance, nearly everyone benefits from
nutritious food. Your doctor will probably not even discuss
this with you so finding an expert in nutrition to counsel
you about your particular needs is a really good idea. The "terrain" as
it is called in schools of biological medicine determines
the ability of unhealthy organisms to survive. You are more
responsible for your terrain than your doctor because you
choose your food and beverages. This gives you control over
much more than you realize. For instance, while your doctor
may not even have taken a single course in nutrition, you
will find hundreds of books on diet, nutrition, fasting,
food preparation and combining, alkalizing your diet, etc.,
In my opinion, it behooves each patient to
find out as much as possible about the underlying conditions,
to assess the terrain, and where possible to make healthy adjustments.
No one can guarantee that addressing the terrain will cure
cancer, but neither can someone who fixes a flat tire guarantee
that you will never have another flat. In life, we drive over
nails and expose ourselves to hazards that undermine our health. If
we avoid the hazards and correct what we can, we can expect
a better quality of life and perhaps freedom from disease?
It's an assumption, not a promise.
