Plumber’s Guide to Blood Pressure

Re: Did I hear or understand Atom correctly in a previous show with Patrick when he said that drinking too much water can actually cause blood pressure to elevate? Everyone else’s belief seems to be the opposite.

Fortunately, for the greater good of the general public, only a few misinformed “experts” believe the opposite.

Suppose a balloon is overfilled with water.

No one in their right mind would add more water to the balloon to keep it from exploding.

Reducing water pressure makes a water heater last longer. (We recently learned this the hard way.)

Adding water increases pressure. Subtracting water decreases pressure.

High blood pressure is one of the universally recognized signs of water intoxication.

(Sometimes — every Yin has a Yang and every Yang has a Yin — excess water does cause blood pressure to drop. It’s a dangerous condition caused by low blood sodium.)

By the way, high blood pressure is sometimes a good thing.

It prevents mental retardation of the fetus during pregnancy.

Doctors prescribing diuretics to pregnant women is just another sign of their ignorance.

Leigh MacMillan (“Plain water has surprising impact on blood pressure,” Reporter: Vanderbilt University Center’s Weekly Newspaper, Jul. 28, 2010) wrote …

“David Robertson, M.D., and colleagues first observed water’s curious ability to increase blood pressure about 10 years ago, in patients who had lost their baroreflexes — the system that keeps blood pressure within a normal range.”

According to the same source …

“Although water does not significantly raise blood pressure in healthy young subjects with intact baroreflexes, the investigators found that it does increase sympathetic nervous system activity and constrict blood vessels (which prevents pooling of blood in the extremities).

“These findings prompted the American Red Cross to conduct a study of water drinking as a method for reducing fainting responses. The study found that drinking 16 ounces of water before blood donation reduced the fainting response by 20 percent.”

Regarding the key words, “intact baroreflexes,” the commonest cause of high blood pressure is not really too much or too little water — it’s the LOSS OF CONTROL over the water in the body.

That’s why blood pressure is so easy to adjust with either hypnosis or biofeedback.

    The question isn’t, “Is DHA good for you?”

    The question is, “What causes Yellow Fat Disease?”

    Another question is, “What causes Age Spots? What is the only oil in Age Spots?”

    I’ve written two-and-a-half books on the subject. Two of them are available at …–e-books.php

    According to The Cornucopia Institute …

    “Martek Biosciences Corporation, owned by the $12 billion Dutch conglomerate Royal DSM, markets DHA oil from a strain of algae that was genetically modified through induced mutations with the use of radiation and/or harsh chemicals. Any technique that genetically modifies organisms or modifies their development through means that are not possible under natural conditions is strictly prohibited in organic food production. The algae and fungus are fermented in stainless steel tanks containing the microorganisms’ ‘feed’.”

      Is stainless steel a safe way to store food do you reckon?!

        Stainless steel is OK, but glass is best, according to Swami Nitty-Gritty.
