It is rare when you get a "gift" like the appended article.
The article is GREAT collateral reinforcement to my teachings on the devastating effects of all of the Colas, etc., in the modern diet, introducing an almost unbelievable Carbon Dioxide (CO2) insult to the body. It is basic scientific knowledge that CO2 dissolved in water is carbonic acid, and that all acids (environmental, diet or metabolic) irritate and inflame the linings of both veins and arteries....in fact, all healthy tissue.
I have warned you for years that excess acid (environmental, dietary or metabolic acid) causes every dis-ease or so-called disease we experience.
The following article refers to using a Carbon Dioxide (CO2) "foam" to irritate the linings of veins (collapsing the veins) that have become thrombic (varicose).
No thought is given to the fact that it is the excess carbon dioxide (carbonic toxic acid) intake that caused the varicose vein conditions to begin with!
The lesson to be learned from the appended article is: CARBON DIOXIDE IS A TOXIC ACID THAT IRRITATES HEALTHY TISSUES, CAUSING IRRITATION AND INFLAMMATION AND DESTROYING HEALTHY TISSUE AND YOUR HEALTH, e.g., Atherosclerosis, Neurological dis-eases, and a broad spectrum of so-called "wasting" diseases all caused by dietary and/or metabolic acid - including acidic vaccines, antibiotics, recreational drugs, Pharma drugs, enzymes and probiotics.
Eliminating acidic carbonated beverages out of your diet, is a major step in reducing the daily dietary carbon dioxide load in the body...then if you add in alkalizing exercise, breathing and dietary regimens, you will go a long way towards curtailing the damaging effects of excess carbon dioxide (carbonic toxic acid) CO2 concentrations on healthy human or animal tissue.
Washing Away Varicose Veins
August 21, 2009
PHOENIX (Ivanhoe Newswire) -- Experts estimate 50 percent of Americans over age 50 have varicose veins. For women -- and men -- they can be embarrassing, ugly, and even so painful it's hard to walk. Now, there's a new treatment option that uses foam to wash away problem veins.
Bulging and painful, Carol Albin used to suffer from painful varicose veins in her legs.
"There was an area that was really big and red, and I called it an explosion," Albin told Ivanhoe.
Fixing painful varicose veins used to mean invasive surgery called vein stripping, or laser treatments. A less invasive option uses detergent -- or foam -- to destroy the veins. Doctors inject the carbon dioxide foam deep into the diseased vein and track it through ultrasound. The foam pushes blood out of the way, eventually closing up the vein.
"It is a chemical, toxic agent to the wall of the vein, so basically what you're doing is you're irritating the inner lining of the vein," Rajagopalan Ravi, M.D., a vascular surgeon at the Arizona Heart Institute in Phoenix, Ariz., told Ivanhoe.
Doctors say using foam means better long-term results, especially for patients who have already had vein procedures.
"It is actually more effective, because you might need less treatment and a smaller quantity of the medicine, and thereby fewer complications," Dr. Ravi said.
Soon after her procedure, Albin was walking comfortably.
"After the surgery, I stayed off the treadmill for just a couple of weeks, and then I went back to it," she said. "The surgery made a big difference because it made the pain go away."
Now, Albin is stepping out with confidence.
The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and generally takes 15 to 20 minutes. Patients with asthma or migraines carry a higher risk of complications. It's covered by most medical insurance carriers if it's performed for medical reasons -- not cosmetic.
