There is a force that pushes the blood through your arteries to oxygenate and feed your cells. The measurable force is called blood pressure. Without getting too technical, there are two measurements to the blood pressure. When you get your blood pressure taken, it would look like 120/80. Healthy blood vessels exhibit pressure within normal ranges. When the pressure rises above normal ranges, you have high blood pressure and of course, if the pressure goes below normal ranges you have low blood pressure. High blood pressure is called hypertension.
How does high blood pressure happen? It usually starts with dehydration. I know, it sounds strange. If you drink fluids how can you possibly be dehydrated? You may be interested to know that about 70-80 percent of the population is chronically dehydrated, according to recent scientific studies.… Read the rest
Scientists at the University of Birmingham, examined the birth records of 400,000 babies. They found an alarming increase in birth defects in areas where the water is highly chlorinated to disinfect it. The problem with the water is worse in the winter time when higher turbidity rates are present. The chlorine combines with the organic matter in the water and forms carcinogens called trihalomethanes which are particularly dangerous to pregnant women.
Trihalomethanes or THM’s can be absorbed through the skin when showering, ingested while drinking or breathed in just by standing beside boiling water. They are readily absorbed by the body and pass through the placenta to the unborn baby. At critical states in fetal development they can disrupt normal development and create a defect.… Read the rest
When sperm meets egg, it’s not long before an amniotic sac forms to cradle the baby is a cushion of water. The placenta is the highway that transports nutrients to the fetus from the mother. The fetus receives nutrients through the placenta to grow those trillions of differentiated cells. When the nutrients are consumed, they create acidic wastes which are transported out of its rapidly growing body via the placenta. The mother is only connected to the fetus by the placenta and umbilical cord, so that all that acidic waste from the baby lands in her body. There is no blood vessels connected to this acidic waste stream to transport it to her kidneys and bowels so her body becomes acidic very quickly.… Read the rest
It’s so nice that you and your honey have decided to have your own sweet bundle of joy. Just like you get ready by quitting smoking, letting go of those weekend cocktails and smartening up your diet, you need to prepare your body in one other important way.
Once you understand how your body works, you can avoid a lot of the “side effects” of being pregnant and even avoid a lot of the fussy baby problems after delivery.
When you eat food, your body burns it as fuel in the cells which give off little puffs of metabolic exhaust. This metabolic exhaust is chemically acidic and the osmotic pumps in your cells and your lymph must have enough water available to push the acidic waste into your elimination system.… Read the rest
