The influence of the blood on our state of being
An unrecognized role of the blood is to form a connecting link between the physical body and the immaterial spirit of man. Consequently, every alteration in the composition of the blood inevitably brings about a modification in this connection and through this, a change in how we experience and perceive reality. This knowledge helps us to better understand ourselves and offers new ways to improve our well-being.
Hypoglycaemia and distress
When our blood sugar level is normal the spirit feels «good in its skin», we are energetic, dynamic and engaging. But whenever the glycaemia drops, the person feels exhausted and unwell. Not only is his energy gone, but also his view of the world is altered. He becomes anxious and is afraid of all kinds of things that are not perceived as frightful by others. And then, just as suddenly as his outlook became darkened, very rapidly- by balancing his glycaemia and therefore his blood composition – his perception of the world will be just as beautiful and simple as before.
Vitamin and mineral deficiencies in the blood
The nutritional discoveries show us daily how the presence or absence of a vitamin or a mineral alone can influence our outlook on the world.
A study carried out at the Mayo Foundation (Minnesota) with volunteers who were fed a balanced diet but that was completely deprived of vitamin B1 showed that at the end of three months, all of the volunteers had become irritable, depressed, and worried that something terrible was going to happen to them. The experience ended after six months with the reintroduction of vitamin B1. As stated in R.Williams’ report “Induced Thiamine (B 1) Deficiency” to be found in the “Archives of Internal Medicine, within a few days the blood composition of the volunteers had changed and they returned to being joyful and clear headed.
Magnesium is also a very educational example. A slight magnesium deficiency causes irritability, over excitement and anxiousness. A greater deficiency makes the subject disorientated, aggressive and subject to hallucinations. This irritable and violent behaviour will quickly disappear as soon as the organism is supplied with the missing magnesium needed to re-establish a normal blood radiation.
The effects of heavy metals and additives
Certain substances that alter our blood composition and our state of being come from air and water pollution. These are heavy metals, such as lead, just to name one among many. Others belong to food additives.
A person whose blood contains too much lead is prone to false perceptions, that is to say, he sees and hears things that do not exist. According to a study undertaken in Switzerland and mentioned in Dr. Michel Lesser’s book “Nutrition and vitamin therapy: the dietary treatments of mental and emotional health”, the lead level, along with the levels of other toxic metals is generally much higher in delinquents. It goes without saying that lead can not be held responsible for the reprehensible acts committed by prisoners. Lead does not turn one into a criminal but, by altering the composition of the blood, it does contribute to clouding our perceptions and judgement.
Around the middle of the last century, a new and unusual behaviour started showing up in some young people. These children are hyperactive. They are not able to follow through with anything, often changing their activities without finishing any of them. They are not only a concern for their surroundings but also for themselves because they are incapable of integrating. The cause of this unhealthy state of hyperactivity was found by Hertha Hafer (“The hidden drug-dietary phosphate”)It is due to a food additive: phosphate, and would disappear if the phosphate was removed from their blood composition which can be done through diet.
New therapeutic possibilities
The knowledge of this unrecognized connection that the blood plays between the body and spirit opens the door to new therapeutic possibilities and allows a completely different orientation of treatment towards the problems concerning psychic balance. These treatments react on the spirit by means of the blood resulting in the spirit having an unaltered perception of reality.
Disturbances, depression or distress can all be treated by supplying the blood with the elements it needs and by eliminating those that are in excess.
There are many ways to alter the composition of the blood: diets, vitamin supplements and detoxification cures. Of course, these methods do not alter the spirit per say, but help it to transform itself. They render its state in a way that better enables it to control its different states of being towards development in life.
