What's Blood Got To Do With It? Everything!
The first writing of embryology, cellular microbiology and biological transformation/pleomorphism is found in the Old Testament: 'For the Life of All Flesh Is the Blood'(Leviticus 17:14)
After one of my scientific lectures, in Boston, MA., on biological transformation and the importance of keeping the extracellular fluids of the blood clean and alkaline at 7.365, I was given this note from one of the attendees:
Dear Dr. Young,
Last night when I got to my room I went to read my Bible and it opened first and directly to the following scripture; 'For I will cleanse their Blood that I have not cleansed; for the Lord dwelleth in Zion.' (Joel O.T.)
I was amazed!
God is so Good!
The statement that the people who make up a nation or a race are imperfect is no more true than a pile of lumber is imperfect. It is the carpenters business to take the lumber which is perfect and build a beautiful house. So it is with the spiritual man, to take the perfect materials that are everywhere in this present world and build by the perfect law of chemistry and biology, a perfected, harmonious human being.
And with this material, apply the same laws to build a perfect society. I perceive from twenty-five years of blood research that the blood is the basic material of which the human body is continually being created or formed. I have referred to the red blood cell as the foundational stem cell. As is the blood, so is the body. Why? Because body cells are created from blood - the red blood cells.
Continuing with this thought, I also perceive, so is the body, so is the brain. And, as is the brain, so is the quality of thought. As a man or woman buildeth, so is he or she. And as a man or woman IS, so thinks he or she.
Solomon's temple is an allegory of a man or woman's temple -- the human body. This house is built without a sound of a saw or hammer. And the quality of that temple is dependent upon the quality of the food, drink, and thought one puts into it. The saying 'you are what you eat' or 'you are what you think' is at the foundation of organized earthly matter.

Your bodies are the temple of the living God. But man, blinded by selfishness and pride, searches here and there. Scours the heavens with his telescope, digs deep into the earth, and dives into the ocean's depths, in a vain search for the 'Elixir of Life' that may be found between the soles of his feet and the crown of his head. Our human body is a miracle of organization. No work of man can compare with it in accuracy of its process and the simplicity of its law. This law is the law of the universe, the law of opposites or opposition - and there needs to be opposition in all things that we might learn by our experience. So we can understand cold by experiencing hot or health when we experience sickness or dis-ease.
As I perceive the complexity of the human body I realize this: at maturity, the human skeleton contains about 165 bones, so delicately and perfectly adjusted. The muscles are about 500 in number. The length of the alimentary canal is 32 feet long. The amount of blood in an average adult is 5 liters weighing over 30 pounds or one-fifth of the total body weight and is a living flowing organ. There is over 3 million red blood cells made every second.
The heart is six inches in length and four inches in diameter, and beats seventy times per minute, 4200 times per hour, 100,800 per day and 36,720,000 per year. At each beat, two and one-half ounces of blood are thrown out of it, 175 ounces per minute, 656 pounds per hour, or about 8 tons per day. All the blood in the body passes through the heart every three minutes. And during seventy years it lifts 270,000,000 tons of blood.
The lungs contain about one gallon of air at their usual degree of inflation. We breath, on an average, 1200 breaths per hour and inhale 600 gallons of air, or 24,000 gallons daily. The aggregate surface of air-cells of the lungs exceed 20,000 square inches, an area nearly equal to that of a room twelve feet square.
The average weight of the brain of an adult is three pounds, eight ounces. The average female brain is two pounds, four ounces. The convolutions of a woman's brain cells and tissues are finer and more delicate in fiber and mechanism, which, perhaps, accounts for the intuition of women. It would appear that the difference in the convolutions and fineness of tissue in the brain matter is responsible for the degrees of consciousness called reason and intuition.
The nerves are all connected with the brain directly, or by the spinal marrow, but nerves receive their sustenance from the blood, and their motive power from the solar plexus dynamic. The nerves, together with the branches and minute ramifications, probably exceed ten million in numbers.
The skin is composed of three layers, and varies from one-eighth to one-quarter of an inch in thickness. The average area of skin is estimated to be about 2,000 square inches. The atmospheric pressure, being fourteen pounds to the square inch, renders a person of medium size subject to a pressure of 40,000 pounds. Each square inch of skin contains 3,500 sweat tubes, or perspiratory pores (each of which may be likened to a little drain tile) one-fourth of an inch in length, making an aggregate length of the entire surface of the body 201,166 feet, or a tube for draining the body nearly forty miles in length.
Our body takes in an average of five and a half pounds of food and drink each day, which amounts to one ton of solid and liquid nourishment annually. So in seventy years a man or woman eats and drinks 1000 times his or her weight.
There is not known in all the realms of architecture or mechanics one little device which is not found in the human organism. The pulley, the lever, the inclined plane, the hinge, the 'universal joint,' tubes and trapdoors, the scissors, grindstone, whip, arch, girders, filters, valves, bellows, pump, camera, harp, irrigation plant, telegraph and telephone systems. All telephone systems and a hundred other devices which man thinks he has invented, but which have only been telegraphed to the brain from the Solar Plexus and crudely copied or manifested on the objective canvas.
No waterway on earth is so complete or so populous as that wonderful "river of life", the blood stream. It has been said that 'all roads lead to Rome.' I have discovered that all roads of real knowledge lead to the "river of life" -- the blood. The blood is an epitome of the universe. When man turns the mighty searching's of reason and investigation within the "river of life" of the blood, a new heaven and earth will appear.
While I have theorized that all body cells are made by the transformation of blood. It is also true that blood is made from the food and supplements that we eat and the liquids that we drink. The foods and the liquids that we eat and drink are set free by the process of digestion and carried into the circulation through the delicate microvilli of the small intestine. Air breathed into the lungs enters into the arteries and chemically unites with the minerals and living anatomical elements of the blood stream, and by a wonderful transformation, creates blood, known as "hematopoiesis", which then, through transformation, creates flesh, bone, muscle, nerves, organs, hair, nails, etc.
The quality of the food we eat and the supplements we take and the liquids we drink determines the quality of the blood. As is the blood, so is the body - so is the body, so is the brain - as is the brain, so is the quality of thought. As a man or woman buildeth, so is he or she. And as a man or woman IS, so thinks he or she.
Through my research I have found that the best way to build healthy blood is with green foods, green drinks and polyunsaturated fats.

In the words of Walt Whitman:
'I loaf and invite my soul; I lean and loaf at my ease, observing a spear of summer grass. Clear and sweet is my soul, and clear and sweet is all that is not my soul.'
'Welcome every organ and attribute of me, and of any man hearty and clean, not an inch, not a particle of an inch, is vile, and none shall be less familiar than the rest.'
'Divine am I, inside and out, and I make holy whatever I touch or am touched from.'
'I say no man has ever yet been half devout enough; none has ever yet adored or worshipped half enough; none has begun to think how divine he himself is, and how certain the future is.'
Everyday the body works very hard to keep the "river of life", the fluids of the blood at a delicate pH balance of 7.365. Any variation from this delicate pH balance the body goes into preservation mode to protect and maintain the integrity of this fluid at 7.365. If the pH of the blood is higher then 7.365, this indicates a state of acidosis in the tissues as the body is attempting to maintain the pH balance of the blood. If the blood pH drops below 7.365, then the buffering system is either depleted or struggling and the acids in the blood are indicating a more serious acidic or degenerative condition. The body will do everything it can to maintain the blood pH at the expense of other organs and organ systems.
One of the major buffers of the blood is fat and especially the electron rich polyunsaturated fats found in the blood and body cells. Fats are used to buffer acids for the purpose of maintaining the plasma or extracellular pH at 7.365. These fats bound to acids are then eliminated or stored away from the organs and organ systems that sustain life. When the diet is over-acidic, this can draw down or use up the essential fats both in the cells and in the extracellular fluids causing a fatty acid deficiency leading to poor bi-lipid membranes or weak blood and body cells and many associated symptomologies such as anemia (low concentrations of iron which acts as the oxygen carrier of the red blood cell), anisocytosis (irregular and unhealthy blood cells), rouleau (when the blood cells chain together causing oxygen deprivation from poor ciriculation), and disseminated vascular coagulation (when the blood begins to clot prematurely and thicken.) This causes high blood pressure and cellular breakdown leading to major disorders.
I have studied live and dried blood for over twenty-five years. I use a high powered (high-powered) phase contrast and bright field light microscope to view a drop of blood from a client's fingertip, obtained with a sterile lancet. The purpose is to examine the structure of the blood cells and plasma fluid, to determine the relative level of cellular health and cleanliness, and to view areas of balance and imbalance suggested by the blood picture.
I use live blood analysis to evaluate the internal biochemical internal environment referred to as the biological terrain to see whether or not it is dirty or clean and the strength and weakness of the red and white blood cells.
Healthy blood under live blood cell analysis shows a clean internal environment and unhealthy blood shows a dirty internal environment full of yeast, bacteria and damaged blood cells with a high white count trying to clean up the cellular debris from an over-acid lifestyle and diet.

Whereas standard laboratory blood tests are generally quantitative (how many cells are there?), live and dried blood cell analyis is qualitative (what is the condition of the cells?). Standard laboratory tests are often used as pre and post studies to live blood cell analysis because there is correlative value in knowing both the quantity and quality of the client's blood cells.
Viewing live blood under a microscope is probably as old as the microscope itself. But it was the work of European scientists Dr. Antoine Bechamp and Dr. Gunther Enderlein in the mid-19th and early 20th centuries that would advance the use of the microscope, challenge the medical establishment of the day and propose new ways of interpreting what was being viewed in blood.
Other microscopists included noted physiologist, Dr. Claude Bernard, who coined the term 'internal milieu,' "Germ Theory" advocate Louis Pasteur, Californian Dr. Virginia Livingston Wheeler and Canadian scientist Gaston Naessens.
In the 1920s, European medical practitioners added another twist to unconventional microscopy when they began looking at dried blood samples, later called the Oxidative Stress Test. A glass microscope slide is dabbed onto a bead of blood on the finger in sequence several times, resulting in a slide with 8 individual drops of blood pressed upon the slide and allowed to air dry. The resulting clotting patterns seen in the dry blood under the bright field microscopy format reveal a characteristic 'footprint' which can be seen in similar cases and, thus, are predictive of certain generalized pathologies. For instance, cases of advanced degenerative disease show very poor clotting, minimal fibrin formation with many white 'puddles' disseminated throughout the sample. A healthy control subject's blood shows a tight, fibrin rich clotting pattern with no white polymerized protein puddles.
In the 1930s, the head of surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital, Dr. H.L. Bowlen, MD, introduced the dry blood test to America. Dr. Bowlen learned the dry test from President Dwight D. Eisenhower's physicians, Drs. Heitlan and LaGarde. In the 1970s, one of Heitlan-LaGarde's students, Dr. Robert Bradford of the American Biologics Hospital in Mexico, began teaching other practitioners including Dr. Robert O. Young over 25 years ago. So now there is over 70 years of dry blood testing data by hundreds of health care practitioners worldwide.

One of the most significant theories I can share with you is the primary site where hematopoiesis or red blood cell production takes place - and that is in the intestinal crypts of the small intestine. It is in the intestinal crypts that liquidfied food is biologically transformed into the erythroblast and then into the primary cell the erythrocyte or the red blood cell.
It is through this understanding that you will come to grasp the importance of the title of this article heading, 'What does blood have to do with it?' It has everything to do with it! The red blood cell is the primary cell that becomes a bone cell, a muscle cell, a heart cell, and/or a liver cell when needed. The quality of the blood determines the quality of the body cells and the quality of the blood is determined by what you eat and what you drink. So if you are eating proton-rich acidic foods and drinks, you will have weak blood cells and eventually weak body cells.
All major disorders are a result of weak blood and weak blood is a result of the lack of electron-rich food and drink.

In 1952, four physiologists, Drs. Donn, Cunningham, Sabin and Jordon performed a two-week starvation experiment using chickens and doves. They found that the red blood cell production was from the bone marrow. When fasting or starving, the cells of the bone marrow, adipose tissue, muscular tissue and liver tissue transform into red blood cells. The process always begins with the bone even when the bowels are congested or, in the case of the condition of ciliac sprue, when there is damage to the intestinal villus.
In spite of what the four physiologists discovered, the primary site of normal blood production originates in the intestinal crypts. When we are congested in the bowel from eating proton-rich acidic foods, the production of the red blood cells stop in the intestine and the body cells transform reversely to the red blood cells in order to keep constant the amount of red blood cells at 5 million per cubic millimeter. This is the reason folks on high protein diets like Atkins and the South Beach diets lose weight. They are wasting their body cells away to make red blood cells at the expense of their health while they are congested in the bowels with morbid undigested animal matter!
Rabbits have 5.5 million to 6 million red blood cells. If they are fed nothing, they will die in 2 to 3 weeks. Now, I have never heard of obese rabbits in the wild or otherwise, nor have I heard of rabbits dying of cancer, let alone having reproductive challenges. However, the amount of red blood cells rarely decreases to less than 3 million. Why does the rabbit keep a constant amount of red blood cells without producing them physiologically? The reason is the same as in humans. Body cells are reversed transfomed into red blood cells. Therefore, such rabbits and even humans will show empty body cells after autopsy.
For example, the liver will retain its shape, but its cytoplasm will have vanished. The cells of all organs of the rabbit or the human - dead from starvation - reveal considerable damage. The cells of the liver, kidney, and even the brain become porous. This is caused, as I have said before, from the reverse transformation of the body cells. Through this reverse transformation, our body organs can function with a minimum amount of red blood cells until the very end of life. Current medical science distinguishes between the red blood cells and the tissues or body cells. In reality, they are related to each other and can be transformed - one to another - in both directions. This is called biological transformation or pleomorphism and is currently not accepted by most western medical scientists.
When a person is eating electron-rich food and drink, they are building healthy red blood cells and healthy body cells. The body stays energetic and at a healthy weight. When the bowels become congested or damaged from proton-rich acidic food, red blood cell production is impaired and body cells are reverse transformed into red blood cells. It must be understood that red blood cells not only deliver oxygen and remove cellular wastes, but they are the primary foundational stem cell for creating new bone, muscle, and nerve cells, etc.

All current diets put your red blood cells at risk and will eventually lead to cellular breakdown and major sickness and dis-ease, hopefully later than sooner.
Since 1952, medical science has deducted that red blood cells in humans is made in the red marrow of the bone. This is true and only true when one is starving. When the body is starving, body cells transform back to red blood cells in order to maintain the balance of human blood at ideal 5 million red blood cells per cubic millimeter. When one is not eating right (comma) you lose weight by wasting body cells that are biologically transformed to red blood cells. When one is congested in the bowel from eating proton-rich acidic foods and drinks, the body begins to sacrifice body cells to make new red blood cells. This is why the scripture in Leviticus is so important to understand! It describes the biology of the human cell. And I repeat, 'The life of all flesh is the blood.' This scripture does not say, 'The life of all flesh is in the blood.' No, flesh is blood and blood is flesh and the quality of the flesh is determined by what you eat, drink and even think!
So, as they say in the computer world, 'garbage in garbage out.' This is why ALL diets will eventually fail you because they do NOT address the significance of the red blood cell and the foods and drinks that will build healthy blood that in turn will build a healthy energetic body that is neither underweight nor overweight - but perfect weight!
