CHITOSAN AND HEAVY METALS (Part 2)
WHAT ILLNESSES CAN RESULT FROM CLOGGED BLOOD VESSELS?
High blood pressure (hypertension): Within the body, the heart has a formidable job — it must pump blood through 100,000 km of vessels. When these blood vessels become clogged, the heart pumps harder, resulting in high blood pressure. Among 40- to 50-year-old Japanese, one person in two suffers from high blood pressure.
Osteoporosis: Clogged blood vessels mean that calcium, a necessary nutrient, cannot reach the bones, making them porous and brittle.
Diabetes: Blood delivers nutrients and oxygen to the farthest reaches of the body, and then collects unwanted carbon dioxide on its way back to the heart. When blood vessels become clogged and blood flow is impeded, carbon dioxide starts accumulating in the body, starting with the hands and feet.
When we are in good health, oxygen is delivered properly to every extremity. This gives our blood an alkaline pH factor. When carbon dioxide accumulates in the body, our blood pH factor becomes acidic. When blood pH is alkaline, insulin has an easy time breaking down sugars; when blood pH is acidic, breaking down sugars becomes more difficult. An insulin resistance occurs, and diabetes is the result.
HOW THE BODY RIDS ITSELF OF HEAVY METALS
As explained in last month’s column, in the modern world, people tend to accumulate heavy metals in their bodies. Even if we feel healthy at the moment, we should try to eliminate heavy metals from our blood vessels as soon as possible.
The body is naturally equipped to eliminate heavy metals in two ways: through the hair and through childbirth. However, in the first case, only a tiny fraction of the body’s heavy metals are eliminated through the hair; the rest remains in the body. Also, in the second case, when a woman gives birth, half the heavy metals in her body are eliminated. (However, this elimination puts the baby — particularly if it is the woman’s first child — at risk.)
What are other ways, then, to eliminate the heavy metals that gradually accumulate in the body due to modern living? Until now, other than these two bodily mechanisms, there has been no way to eliminate them. Today, however, we have chitosan, a revolutionary way to address this problem; we will discuss chitosan’s benefits further next month in our 2-19-21 issue’s Health Information column.
