High blood pressure by Dr F. Batmanghelidj

‘Physicians think they are doing something for you by labeling what you have as a disease.’ – Immanuel Kant

High blood pressure (essential hypertension) is the result of an adaptive process to a gross body water deficiency. The vessels of the body have been designed to cope with fluctuation of their blood volume and tissue requirements by opening and closing different vessels. When the body’s total fluid volume is decreased, the main vessels also have to decrease their aperture (close their lamina), otherwise there would not be enough fluid to fill all the space allocated to blood volume in the design of that particular body. Failing a capacity adjustment to the “water volume” by the blood vessels, gases would separate from the blood and fill the space, causing “gas locks”. This property of lumen regulation for fluid circulation is a most advanced design within the principle of hydraulics and after which the blood circulation of the body is modeled. Read more ›

Does everyone need iodine supplementation?

Iodine supplementations should be prescribed only if indicated by the results of iodine testing. Iodine testing kits may be ordered from my office (828-694-1144) by individuals with a physician’s order or by health care professionals. If ordered by an individual, test results will be returned to the ordering physician; if ordered by a health care provider, test results will be returned to the health care provider. A cost of $88 per kit covers the cost of the load testing kit, testing services, and return postage (charges for additional postage will apply if mailed to location outside the U.S.). A urine iodine spot test was developed by the World Health Organization and looks for iodine sufficiency to prevent goiter. This spot and load test is now offered through our office for $125 plus $2.50 for the Iodoral tablets. Read more ›

A solution to Ulcerative Colitis (UC)?

Meet Marine:

I was diagnosed with UC five years ago at the age of 24. According to the colonoscopy 70% of my colon was inflamed and full of ulcers. Thinking back they must have not been very deep though as I was going to the bathroom only 5-6 times a day and not 20-30 as some others. Currently I work full time with deadlines but I try to manage my stress to the extent possible and I do my best to keep a life and work balance. Read more ›
