I believe that a healthy blood flow to the heart starts with clean alkaline blood processed by a healthy liver free from toxins such as drugs, alcohol and toxic medications (narcotics). Consumption of foods rich in nutrients such as folate, Vitamin C and B and L-arginine amino acid can prevent mitochondrial damage. Example of foods rich in these nutrients are cage-free eggs, dairy products like cultured yogurt, kefir and raw cheeses (choose organic and raw dairy whenever possible) Grass-fed beef or meat and pasture-raised poultry (including turkey and chicken) Liver and organ meats (such as chicken liver pate).
And the most important factors for a healthy heart are deep cleansing breath from calm mind, sleep, stress-free and healthy lifestyle with positive energies from sunshine, massage and grounding (walking barefoot on the beach or ground).
Sun, Earth and the Human Touch — 3 Key Principles for Healthy Blood Flow
Pollack has also clearly demonstrated there are three natural energies that result in separation of charges that create flow:
1.Sunlight charges up your blood vessels, which increases the flow of blood. When the sun’s rays penetrate your skin, it causes a massive increase of nitric oxide that acts as a vasodilator. As much as 60 percent of your blood can be shunted to the surface of your skin through the action of nitric oxide. This helps absorb solar radiation, which then causes the water in your blood to capture the energy and become structured.
2.Negative ions from the Earth, also known as earthing or grounding. This also charges up your blood vessels, creates a separation of charges, creates more positive ions and allows the blood to flow upward, against gravity.
3.The field effect or touch from another living being, such as laying on of hands.
Mitochondrial encephalopathy, lactic acidosis, and stroke-like episodes (MELAS) is one of the family of mitochondrial cytopathies, which also include MERRF, and Leber’s hereditary optic neuropathy.
Most people with MELAS have a buildup of lactic acid in their bodies, a condition called lactic acidosis. Increased acidity in the blood can lead to vomiting, abdominal pain, extreme tiredness (fatigue), muscle weakness, loss of bowel control, and difficulty breathing. Less commonly, people with MELAS may experience involuntary muscle spasms (myoclonus), impaired muscle coordination (ataxia), hearing loss, heart and kidney problems, diabetes, epilepsy, and hormonal imbalances.
MELAS is a condition that affects many of the body’s systems, particularly the brain and nervous system (encephalo-) and muscles (myopathy). In most cases, the signs and symptoms of this disorder appear in childhood following a period of normal development.Early symptoms may include muscle weakness and pain, recurrent headaches, loss of appetite, vomiting, and seizures. Most affected individuals experience stroke-like episodes beginning before age 40. These episodes often involve temporary muscle weakness on one side of the body (hemiparesis), altered consciousness, vision abnormalities, seizures, and severe headaches resembling migraines. Repeated stroke-like episodes can progressively damage the brain, leading to vision loss, problems with movement, and a loss of intellectual function (dementia). The stroke-like episodes can be mis-diagnosed as epilepsy by a doctor not aware of the MELAS condition.
Also the following supplements may help:
- CoQ10 has been helpful for some MELAS patients. Nicotinamide has been used because complex l accepts electrons from NADH and ultimately transfers electrons to CoQ10.
- Riboflavin has been reported to improve the function of a patient with complex l deficiency and the 3250T-C mutation.
- The administration of L-arginine during the acute and interictal periods may represent a potential new therapy for this syndrome to reduce brain damage due to impairment of vasodilation in intracerebral arteries due to nitric oxide depletion
