[ Heart Attack ] Prevention: what are we missing?

Cardiologist Dr. Henry Solomon cited many examples in The Exercise Myth of published studies which clearly show that the majority of cardio vascular accidents where athletes die during or shortly after exercise, were caused by exertion stress. Dr. Amdrew Krahm of the University of British Columbia recently presented a study » at the 2012 Canadian Cardiovascular Congress that suggests sudden death in young athletes is not related to exercise and sports.

The reason given for this new conclusion is the fact that most young athletes die at home when they’re relaxing afterwards, only a few occur on the field while they’re actually playing. Assuming that the cardiovascular accidents in the new study happened after the athlete had fully recovered from exercise training or sports competition (for example it can take the kidneys hours if not days to clear acidity out of the blood and cellular fluid even without the accumulated effect of over-training syndrome) what exactly has changed over the last 25 years to instigate this shift?

If we suspend our skepticism that heart stressors resulting from exercise don’t trigger sudden death from heart attack (not likely since in general 99.9% of all warm-up cool down routines as a rule DO NOT address the disruption of neural, endocrine, circulatory and pH factors that occur during conditioning, adequately ever) then what else could it be? Remember the physiologic changes produced by cortisol combined with an acidified body pH during exercise can damage blood vessel walls much like nicotine as deep body temperature rises and oxygen levels drop. Lactic acid build-up eventually leads to acidosis and changes to the shape and function of protein cells, which is especially damaging to the myocardium. Many forms of cardiomyopathy can occur during exercise where the electrical rhythm of the heart is impacted, including ventricular fibrillation… unless we take the necessary precautionary measures »

Locally-sourced is your best bet.

We might also find a clue by taking a look at the other side of the lifestyle equation: diet. Given the best case scenerio where a teenager or young adult isn’t snacking on corn or potato chips, sugar, wheat, canola oil, and other GMO based junk food after the game, it’s still been very difficult to avoid the powerful neuro-toxins now widely prevalent on most fresh fruits and vegetables produced in North America. It takes a huge commitment on the part of parents and coaches to source uncontaminated food from local farmers. Find out if they use USDA approved fertilizers or fungicides, because if the symptoms are any indication they now contain ‘safe’ neuro-toxins and GMO derivatives. Plus it’s necessary to check if they protect their harvest from farm to plate during storage, handling and transport. If diet is indeed at least partially to blame, then this makes athlete sudden death a social problem as well as a sports training challenge. Without complete lifestyle solutions for diet and exercise that fit the body we can expect things to get worse before they get better as we raise our consciousness and return to magnificence.

40-Day Fast Ends in 21

Listening to just how much fasting, no more and no less than my body needs, I made the decision to end Don Tolman’s 40-day water fast on its twenty first day. Since I’ve maintained my ideal BMI ratio for the past four decades with Body’Fit pH Fitness™ exercise (pHx™), I don’t carry a lot of extra fat. That’s not why I was fasting, I needed to detoxify from chemical poisoning after application of perfume containing aldehyde. I felt the final release of toxins from my solar plexus on day 21.

Since any residual pain I’d been experiencing when stretching in a cobra position was completely gone, what I didn’t want to do is start losing muscle – there was no need too. I broke my fast with a fabulous Japanese Buckwheat Soba Wakame soup that went right to my soul. The iron-like strength that a simple bowl of Ramen can impart after a fast is quite astonishing. Please note that breaking a fast like this may not be for everyone – it was what my body needed at that moment, and I wasn’t about to argue. I’m now doing a few days of Cabala juice to wind down the fasting process.

It’s interesting how orthodox academic propound on ancient ways of healing has argued that accounts passed down over the ages, although similar in many traditional texts, doesn’t imply effectiveness… “When one plant failed, another was tried, but the first may still have been recorded as a treatment.” “It could have been one in a long series of failed experiments.” Of course, since it’s been the practice of modern science to maintain meticulous records of both failed and successful experiments, and also for analysis to take precedence over empathetic intuition, this would have to be their point of view, wouldn’t it.

At the end of the day, when we rely on the knowledge and wisdom of our innate pre-established wholeness, we can observe that the scales of justice do not tip in the direction of concocted medicine synthesized for patentability. We don’t all know the intricacies of masking symptoms, however it becomes obvious when we unmask what works.


Midpoint in 40-day Water Fast

I just came back from my usual 10+ km walk in the park  – with the sublime stillness of morning light releasing it’s fragrance of freedom (got wild weed photos). I started off on 6 ounces of Cabala fast juice, a glass of water, and a 10-minute round of pHx™. I experienced no desire to drink water during the walk, however I’ve had a couple litres of water since.

The thing about cell revitalization, rejuvenation, and regeneration is that, without detoxification, it can’t happen to the level of original completeness and perfection. Yet to push out the toxins and clean house before modelling according to our pre-established blueprint, detoxification requires that cellular metabolism reach its peak under conditions of pH balance… the dilemma solved by a synthesis of our collective traditional and contemporary knowledge that restores body pH to normal alkalinity, and reaches Peak Metabolic Potential™ (PMP™) in minutes.

Since acid base equilibrium is pre-requisite for optimal cellular function, compression of physiological response elicits an entirely new experience in pH fitness magnifying the detoxification of walking, running and working out. A singular sequence of movements, specific to these principles, needs to be performed as a warm-up immediately pre and post acidic exercise or sports for  regeneration to be more noticeable without a lot of time and effort.

In this context of exercise and fasting, it’s exciting that the pain in my solar plexus (immune system central) from aldehyde perfume poisoning (which gave me a reason to try out Don Tolman’s fast combined with the Body’Fit pH Fitness™  exercise (pHx) sequence) is subsiding faster than expected. If it’s possible to sustain our health without the weapons of war against disease, then I’m confident it’s also possible to lay down the weapons of war that threaten global survival. As we become self sufficient at conserving our own health with what nature freely provides with abundance, war, debt, and the ‘not so‘ fabulous become redundant.


Day 12 of 40-Day Water Fast

It’s true… fasting sharpens the mind and heightens the senses. Today, on the morning of the 12th day of my fast, I woke up to this clear realization: “Drugs kill. Ask any pre-med, it’s their business. Dodging the lethal edge of synthetics unscathed takes some skill”.

Sugar-coated and laced into an intricate web inundating our bodies and minds from every conceivable angle, awareness remains our only protection. From children’s Tylenol (the recall, a crump) to vitamin additives and perfume fragrances, we’re lulled into a false sense of security.  From the almost indiscernible messages in movies we watch, the advertizing we absorb, and the charity benefits we attend – physically, emotionally, and mentally we’re dangerously in denial.

In a climate of socially sanctioned and entirely legal attack from a wolf in sheep’s clothing, even a complete water fast cannot provide refuge. Chemical poisoning from aldehydes for someone like myself with a sensitivity requires specialized cellular detox and recovery. Having restored depleted salt levels, I’m starting to take small sips of Cabala juice with water, and of course continuing a protocol of pH fitness to speed up detoxification. It’s taking every ounce of my ingenuity and intuition to align with the complete and perfect blueprint. Still I almost drank juice made from organic lemons whose fungicidal coating had not been scrubbed off satisfactorily.

Quote of the day:  “Believing everything is okay, doesn’t make it so. Conscious choice takes a vigilient effort of Will”. The next time you ask for medical advise, make sure it is indeed sound. Doing your research is a matter of self responsibility.


Day 8 of 40-day Water Fast

To restore the body to it’s peak potential of completness and perfection, rigid adherence to the 40-day water fast may not be sufficient. Heightened body awareness, however, divulges it’s secrets.

After a herbal tea of tumeric spice on the evening of the 6th day, I experienced an upset stomach, I’d consummed a herb that had been tampered with. Sure enough it wasn’t organic and if it had crossed the US border it had likely been irradiated. I immediatly made a seaweed tea with cayenne and a little mineral salt appreciating it’s soothing detox. Miso had helped the Japanese survive an irradiated environment, so the next morning I went out for some. It was cool and I wore my half finger leather gloves.

The impact of my boot hitting a ridge in the sidewalk created a sudden forward velocity. Okay I’m falling, my body instinctively surrendering calmly; its entire length distributing the hard bang into cement. Not bad, except my head kept going. Boy, that was a hard hit, I thought, roll over to absorb the electro-magnetism of the soft earth. I pressed my temples between my hands, and vocalized. Internally focused I noted with some surprise the resilience and energy of my bones. I’m OK – years of daily pHx and work with neural lymphatic systems paid off. A gentleman came by when I bit the dust, and told me the bump on my eyebrow was dripping. It dripped for a minute cleaning any dirt out.

I walked with my forehead toward the sun, a half mile home. I dressed in natural fibers of wool, silk and cotton. A draught of miso tea brought up my salt levels. First I poured hydrogen peroxide on the bruise several times, then soaked in a rock salt bath, and iced to reduce swelling in my right knee, hip, and Zygomatic bone (which works like a car bumper). After some internal work, exercises to generate electrolyte flow, and pressing deep into bone all around the painful areas, any residual shock dissipated in the healing presence of my husband.  I awoke refreshed for pHx and a morning walk, the 80 percent of body energy required for digestion redirected into regeneration. 24 hours later, the pain, swelling and bruising have just about disappeared. I’ve learned if you let your body talk, it leads you to the truth of it’s volition. Economically, efficiently – marvelously.


Day 6 of 40-Day Water Fast

I’d been waiting. I knew the answer would come; I just didn’t know how, when, or in what form, exactly. If I wanted to live a long healthy life, at least as long as I have lived… whatever it was needed to be a potent, powerful remedy that would  come at the moment it was most needed, would be of the most benefit, and that I would have the fortitude of will to carry through.

Sure enough, both reason and remedy arrived as a package the week before. We had just discovered Tom Tolman’s 40-day fast, and had watched the Coco Chanel movie. On the strength of Coco’s immutable character I all of a sudden went out and for the first time in decades test sprayed a whole bunch of French perfume on my carotid artery.

Well that certainly gave me the motivation… I was flat on my back with intense pain from the chemical reaction. My husband who had met the inventor of this perfume and his family many years ago remembered after the fact that it was a natural flower essence bound to an aldehyde molecule. I had always been able to recover my original vitality and strength through pH fitness exercise and diet after experiencing a setback. This however was different.

It was time to do the water fast, starting immediately. I made the decision, and simply stopped eating and started drinking water… warm water, cold water, water infused with dandelion, camomile, or a pinch of Himalayan salt. Suddenly overcome by a desire to consume the beautiful rainbow of fruits and vegetables before me, the waning pain in my bowel held me steady on course. We had a social function, a barbecue, to attend which thankfully distracted me somewhat – and also built up my resistance to temptation. Now on day 6 my cravings are all but gone, and my energy has returned. Onward and upward.
