Raynaud's Disease: A Lack of CO2 and Electrons
Raynaud's disease is currently explained as a poorly understood condition with hyperactivation of the sympathetic system due to unknown causes. The overactive sympathetic system causes the spasm of blood vessels in hands and feet leading to low-O2 levels in extremities.
Raynaud's syndrome has two major causes:
- arterial hypocapnia (low-arterial CO2)
- lack of electrons in body cells due to insulation from Earth.
In most cases, both these factors are present. Since CO2 is the most powerful known vasodilator, a lack of CO2 causes spasm of blood vessels. Deficiency of electrons exacerbates perfusion and tissue hypoxia.
As a result of these deficiencies, people with Raynaud's disease have less than 20 seconds for the body-oxygen test, while the clinical norm is 40-50 seconds. Obviously, vasoconstriction also causes low-O2 levels in the brain, heart, and all other vital organs. Therefore, it is common that people with Raynaud's disease also suffer from many other effects of hyperventilation and a lack of grounding.
Raynaud's disease treatment
' Generally, it is known that breathing retraining alone (without Earthing or grounding the body to Earth) is able to resolve the problem completely if the person gets over 30 seconds for the body-oxygen test 24/7. This usually takes about 2-4 weeks for a person who can devote about 2 hours per day to breathing sessions and physical exercise with nose breathing.
Earthing, as an additional technique, leads to much faster recovery. Earthing during sleep is a very effective technique even without breathing retraining.
' As about immediate methods to relieve existing symptoms of Raynaud's disease, one can apply a breathing exercise How to Warm up Cold Hands and Feet. An additional measure to get rid of symptoms of Raynaud's disease in about 15-20 minutes is to use a feet or hands bath (with sea salt and electrical grounding to Earth) that is explained on the page How to Ground Yourself.
In any case, get over 30 seconds for the body-oxygen test and forget about your nightmares with Raynaud's disease.
