    I believe we do not have enough energy to continuously pump blood using heart muscles. What does not make sense is the orientation of the heart muscle fibers and the lack of any physical support inside the heart for contraction, absence of nerves and lactic acid buildup in the muscles.

    The gravity force causes increased atmospheric air pressure resulting in increased temperature and reduced distance between chemical elements. Chemical reactions in the lungs cause the blood to compress by changing the conformations of the proteins making up the red and white blood cells. Blood expands in the left side of the heart causing elongation of the heart followed by closing and opening the proper valves, then recoiling and snapping back of the heart muscles/elastic fibers pushes the blood out of the heart.

    Since the blood expansion is in both directions, combination of blood vessels branching, diameters and the heart valves directs the blood in one direction and prevent backflow, like Diodes, heart works like a Capacitor and arteries, veins and capillaries work like Solenoid, neurons, nodes and glands work like Transistors and ICs to regulate the resonance frequencies of all the biological cycles. Diseases and organ failures happen when these cycles go out of sync with each other by changes in their frequency.

    It is possible that SA and RA nodes trigger a gradual and positively progressive recoiling of the heart muscle fibers by stimulating some of the fibers to cause a chain reaction and snap back.

    Diaphragm does not function as a mechanical pump, it is the mechanism to increase the space available for lungs to expand, like the Carburetor intake valve which changes the air volume and manifold pressure and the power output.

    The concept of pumping by fill and release is seen in every biological system we have, like filling and releasing air in the lungs, blood in the heart, urine in the bladder, food in the digestive system, fetus in the uterus, sperm in the testicles and all the nodes and glands in the body.

    This means that placenta is a temporary heart and not lungs.

    Also it is important to remember that the only gas forming bubbles in the decompressed blood is Nitrogen and no O2 or CO2.

    I also believe all the bacterias and infections in or on our body are our own genetic materials encapsulated in lipid based proteins, They are the cell's nucleus which experienced interruption at some stage of their cell cycle, so they could not be recycled or recombined with other white blood cells to form a complete cell. Simply the white blood cells are our own cells in different stages of their cell cycle. White blood cells are released in and collected from the capillaries, in many cases neurons regulate this process. WBCs manifest as pus, infection and inflammation and if they contain encapsulated genetic materials, we call that bacterial or viral infection.

    Please let me know what you think, thanks.

    Lol,… My Endocrinologist doesn't give a crap about Insulin,… Told me I was silly for getting my Fasting Insulin tested & that it was pointless,… She didn't care what my level was.

    My name is Esther from Los Angeles USA, i want to share my testimony because I know it will help some people out there. My husband Charles was diagnosed with Huntington's disease in 2017, I watch my husband living like a mad person sometimes i share tears. After several failed attempts to make him well again, I searched on the internet for a cure but there was none, in 2019 I bump into a comment on youtube on how Dr. Bharat cured a woman who also suffered from Huntington's for 6 years with his herbal medicine. Without wasting time I contacted him and he asked me a few questions which I answered then he prepared the medication and sent them to me here in LA with a prescription on how to use attached to it. I administered it to my husband as prescribed, within 2 months i start seeing improvements in his health and he was totally healed in 6 months, now my husband is living his best life again. You can contact Dr. Bharat via dr.bharatkings@gmail.com you will come back to testify

    Thanks for the video content! Sorry for butting in, I would love your initial thoughts. Have you ever tried – Millawdon Physique Power Trick (do a google search)? It is a great exclusive product for saying goodbye to diabetes minus the normal expense. Ive heard some extraordinary things about it and my mate finally got amazing success with it.
