In the first part of the article on macular degeneration, a patient was found to have a large imbalance between potassium and calcium.
I’m not sure that the mind of an ordinary therapist has such a figurative idea of these minerals as I have.
Let me show you my fantasies:
Potassium is a vital mineral, but strictly in a certain concentration. In the blood. Its ideal concentration is approximately 4.2 millimoles per liter. Deviations, both up and down, increase the risk of death from ANY CAUSE – i.e. it is a fundamental metabolic factor. Remember- potassium is one of the four magic minerals of Dr. Alexander Samohotsky (together with calcium, magnesium and sodium).
The properties of potassium, apparently, are determined by its position in the series of standard electrochemical potentials:
Being in the third position from the left of the table of electrochemical potentials, potassium has a strong influence on hydrogen-containing substrates. The reaction of potassium with substrates causes a rapid release of atomic hydrogen. Atomic hydrogen in the body is the main fuel that mitochondria use in the process of ATP production – a universal energy source for all biochemical processes occurring in living systems, and in particular for the formation of enzymes.
Obviously, it is this main property of potassium that determines its role in living organisms.
The properties of potassium allow it to freely diffuse to any place in the body. It penetrates all membranes without any special obstacles if the concentration of its antagonists is insufficient. A result of the ability of antagonists, potassium is normally retained inside the cell (where it belongs in the process of splitting food substrates). These antagonists are two other minerals of Dr. Samohotsky – calcium and sodium. If potassium is not hidden in the cell, its carnivorous properties extend to the intercellular space, causing damage to capillaries in all parts of the body, in all organs saturated with capillaries.
Potassium outside the cell stimulates acidosis. And prolonged acidosis is a guarantee of the formation of tumors. In this sense, tumors can be considered as a way to combat the damaging effect of potassium against the background of acids excess in body fluids (hydrogen, in combination with the anions of chlorine, sulfur, phosphorus and other elements, creates hard concentrations of inorganic acids that increase tissue inflammation – it is a note to cancer fighters).
How do potassium antagonists work?
Calcium is an element without which it is impossible to create normal connective tissue. Calcium is an element that thickens cell membranes, making them less permeable. Those – calcium reduces the ability of potassium to freely spread throughout the body.
Sodium is the balancer of potassium in the work of the cellular pump, which in exchange for 3 sodium ions pushed out of the cell, drives 2 potassium ions into the cell. In this way, the negative intracellular potential of a normal living cell is formed. Without sodium, the creation of such potential would be fundamentally impossible. And the absence of potassium in the cell is the absence of the normal process of cellular digestion.
But potassium should be exactly as much as needed, and excess potassium is excreted from the body by normally functioning kidneys (but again – in the presence of calcium and sodium).
Unfortunately, in this topic, I again did not get to lipofuscin. Well – I have to write the third part.
And the balancing of minerals in the body can be easily done according to the Pulse Spectral Analysis Manual:
