#278: Heart May Not Be a Pump: a New Cardiovascular Disease Model with Thomas Cowan, MD
10.23.2019 - By High Intensity Health with Mike Mutzel, MS
Thomas Cowan, MD shares compelling evidence that ‘charged water’ drives peripheral circulation and the heart’s job is to actually slow this down. This discussion is super fascinating (and may challange your biases). ➢This episode is brought to you by Best Blue Light Blocking Glasses Avail BluBlox! http://bit.ly/32IuFXA *Their new REMedy sleep mask is amazing!

It needs to be remineralized and placed in a vortex to be restructured. 08:05 In the 1920s Rudolph Steiner said that the heart does not pump the blood. 12:15 Blood goes slower as it proceeds through the arteries until it gets to the capillaries where it stops, shimmies and gets going again. 16:07 Your heart does not have the force you would need to push blood through your blood vessels. 20:07 The motive for movement is at the level of the capillaries. 03:39 There are 4 phases of water. The water in cells is in a gel phase. 24:46 The gel layer of your cells is always negatively charged, which means it has separated the charges. There are positive charges in the water inside the cell. The positive ions/protons repel each other and start the water flowing. 26:50 Water cannot go up a tube more than 33 feet before the pressure of the weight of the water is too heavy. 27:30 Xylem tubes in plants are lined with hydrophilic proteins that separate the charges, shifting fluid using the same method as your body uses to move blood up your veins. 28:20 A vein is a thin walled tube with hydrophilic surfaces that creates a gel layer. 29:12 Muscle contraction in the legs is not a primary mover, though it is a contributor. 30:24 Your heart stops the blood. Incoming flow hits the cavity of the left ventricle which contains a valve. The heart holds the blood back a few milliseconds, converts the laminar flow into a vortex. 32:12 Your heart participates in the movement of the blood, but not because of a pushing of the walls. Movement comes from the movement of the blood. 33:07 The heart is like a hydraulic ram. 33:45 The efficiency of the hydraulic ram is about 70%. Only 70% comes out each cycle. A pump must always work at 100% efficiency. The efficiency of the heart is 70%. 35:06 Congestive heart failure is when the blood stops moving forward and only a small percentage comes out. 35:17 Since the heart is not pumping, the problem in congestive heart failure is insufficient flow. 36:22 Hypertension and hypertrophy are not the disease, they are the compensation response and therapy. 37:50 Flow is increased with sunlight, direct contact with the earth, good diet, and increased exercise. 38:50 Earthing/grounding causes you to absorb negative ions, a sort of energy source. 41:44 Our ability to make gels is destabilized by the insults of modern life. 42:54 The vortex of blood created by your heart is like a tornado. Vortex is the creative form of life. 44:12 We ignore life force in today’s science. 50:41 Any plant takes water and structures it. 53:55 The structuring of water occurs naturally through the interaction of blood vessels and the natural energy sources that are freely available to us. 54:48 The flow through a hydrophilic tube increases when you place your hand upon it. 01:04:11 The traditional way to eat vegetables is wild and perennial. 01:16:42 Dr. Cowan’s favorite morning activity is going right out to the garden and spending hours there. 01:18:18 Dr. Cowan’s desert island nutrient is eggs. 01:18:58 Dr. Cowan’s elevator pitch is that any form of coercion (ie: going to school, paying taxes, getting vaccinated) is the opposite of freedom.
