The Protein Connection

In discussing heart disease it would not be proper to not let you in on some vital information beyond what we are saying here. And that is this; most people consume far too much cooked animal protein. Since the 1940's, Dr. Lothar Wendt of Germany has been telling professionals through many published reports that the problems inherent in poor health have a huge basis in the over consumption of cooked animal protein.

This protein, of a cationic nature, if it is not dispersed through sufficient enzyme digestive activity, can end up getting stored deep into the body (enzymes are anionic dispersing agents and discussed in depth later). Over-storage of this animal protein leads to problems:

The protein stored in the blood causes a reduced micro-circulation and contributes to thrombosis.

The protein stored on the basal membranes of capillaries and on the walls of arteries causes arteriosclerosis.

The protein stored inside the heart muscle causes cardiomuscular disease and heart attacks.

The protein stored on the filters of the kidneys causes kidney disease.

The protein stored in the liver blocks the only exit of the LDL cholesterol from the blood stream. Cholesterol that can't leave the bloodstream through the liver contributes to arteriosclerosis.

The protein stored on the membranes of body cells causes diabetes.

The protein stored in the breasts of women contributes to the development of breast cancer.

The protein stored in the prostate contributes to prostate cancer.

Dr. Dean Ornish, on one page of his book "Program for Reversing Heart Disease", stated that in animal studies, even a low-fat diet that is high in protein can promote the formation of coronary artery blockages. What does that tell you? Low fat diets are absolutely meaningless for cardiovascular protection, but protein consumption is critical.

Going further, we should state that clots themselves, though indicative of a falling zeta potential and probable excess protein concentration, do not themselves cause heart attacks. Back in 1967 Dr. Georgio Baroldi proved that heart attacks occur in areas of the heart muscle different from the area of the clot in the coronary artery. The body builds natural bypasses around clots. What Dr. Wendt showed was that the excess of consumed animal protein stored in the interstitial of the heart muscle is the actual cause of the heart attack. This excess protein storage results in a locally elevated acid level which kills the cells of the heart muscle from the inside. This dying of cells is what is called a heart attack.

What we know of zeta potential is that when the forces of cations are stronger than anions, things stick together. If the heart is a target it's a problem.

Dumping Your Stored Proteins

The process of dumping these excess protein stores, along with dispersing other garbage in the body, is one of getting increased levels of anionic electrolytes into the body. One of the clinicians I work with is George Atkeson. He is a people tester. He likes to discover where people's balance lay. When individuals come in with elevated SC readings and altered pH levels, he often suggests trying a diet of acid fruit in the morning and shifting to no starch vegetables in the afternoon along with drinking a lot more water.  (The acid fruit is simply that which tests acid on a pH meter but actually is very alkalizing due to high potassium content. No starch veggies means just that, no starch - low sugar.)

Now look at this diet. It is high in anionic electrolytes, and the lack of sugars (starch) means low levels of the non-ionic substances that might cause steric hindrance.  This means that cations have a good chance of getting dispersed. And that is exactly what happens. George monitors specific factors to gauge proteins coming out in the urine, and lo and behold, they are very high, often accompanied initially with high SC readings.

So here we have individuals consuming no protein whatsoever, and yet they are eliminating proteins like crazy (not to mention many other things like stored toxins that are finally getting a chance to get dispersed and released.) What happens then? All sorts of good things that begin taking the body back to a natural balance. Blood pressures go back to normal, cholesterol levels drop, allergies dissipate, insulin resistance disappears. Yep, you read that right, diabetics can become un-diabetic. It is all possible when understanding the problem of excess protein storage which ultimately is understanding anionic and cationic influences. Excess stored cationic substances - proteins, toxins, salts (insulin is a salt) - when released through appropriate means, is exceedingly healthy and helps the body maintain balance.

Much More to Say

There is so much more to say about these topics we find it hard to find a natural stopping point. There have been grievous errors committed upon the health of the population through ignorance, ego and interests of greed.

Now just because we discuss animal protein here does not mean it should not be consumed. The body when balanced has a tremendous capacity to handle a lot  -  including cooked animal protein. (The exception would be children under age 12, they should never consume meat  -  nor milk  -  because they do not have the digestive capacity for this heavy protein until about the age of 12.)

One of the biggest problems we have with meat these days is the abundance of vegetable oils fed to farm animals to fatten them up. It was learned long ago that if you want to make a pig fat, feed it corn oil. Want to make the pig lean, feed it coconut oil. Because of bad science propagated up to meet specific agendas, polyunsaturated vegetable oil has been king of the grocery store shelves. It is wreaking havoc with people's health.

Note: mothers milk is 55% saturated fat. Does that tell you something? The body needs fat, yes even saturated fat The best saturated fat easily obtained is by using coconut oil. People that have started to supplement their diets with coconut oil and eliminating canola, corn and other vegetable oils have found themselves slimming down. They are likely also making their circulatory systems healthier. However, coconut oil has been removed from most grocery store shelves. If you want an interesting research project, do a search for the research of Ray Peat, PhD and coconut oil. You could also search out the Weston Price research.
