COVID-19 UPDATE: CURE IS NOW VIRTUALLY OPEN & ENROLLING
March 30, 2020: CURE continues to provide full services to our students and employees. Effective today, our Ultrasound and Medical Assistant classes are in session online, temporarily, during the COVID-19 restrictions imposed by the State and Federal government. Financial Aid and Admissions Department staff are available as well as Registrar and Career Services. CURE continues to stress the need for all our community to work and manage activities in compliance with COVID-19 CDC guidelines. We are proud of our students for their hard work and dedication to their education during this challenging time, and to the amazing CURE team for pivoting to this new temporary normal of educational operations. Should you have any questions or needs, please contact us.
Discussing a Plausible Treatment for ARDS Symptoms; Calcium Ion Homeostasis With Lorenzo's Oil
Updated: May 7
Respiratory distress when fluid (edema), blood (thrombus) or fat (lipids) clog the lungs and can't pass through the small capillaries, lodging in them, causing breathing difficulties.
The following is a hypothesis.
Cellular trauma is the root cause of ARDS symptoms. Cellular trauma is also the root cause of phlegm, mucus, pneumonia and multiple kinds of plaques, including atherosclerotic, scattered, amyloid and others.
When the cell becomes traumatized, whether it is physical, mechanical, chemical, biological, physiological, environmental, infectious, pathogenic, such as with bacteria and viruses - including the corona viruses, cellular traumatic processes, stemming from the mitochondria, cause the body to attempt to repair us, leading to cytokine reactions and ultimately plaque.
Besides the obvious physical trauma of broken bones or other physical injuries, cellular trauma can be triggered when pathogens and infectious processes like bacteria and viruses invade the body. Cellular trauma can also be triggered by toxins including smoking, vaping, drugs, radiation, pollution, pesticides and other poisonous agents. Cellular trauma can be caused by surgery. Cellular trauma can be triggered by acute disease such as heart attacks and strokes. It can also be triggered by chronic disease such as diabetes, and asthma. Cellular trauma responses can also be triggered by physiological circumstances such as panic attacks or even near-death experiences causing physical 'fight or flight' reactions. Cellular trauma can also result from deprivation such as in dehydration, sleep deprivation, starvation and even loneliness. The deprivation of basic human needs triggers cellular trauma. Even in death itself, evident from the process of rigor mortis, the cellular traumatic processes lead to the lipids and plaques that attempt to repair what harms us.
Cellular trauma triggers calcium ion imbalance. Inside each cell are mitochondria. Inside the mitochondria are endoplasmic and sarcoplasmic reticulum. When the cell is traumatized, the calcium ions act like little soldiers that leave the cell via actual EF hands, which are paired proteins that help open the door, which is an actual calcium channel. The hands pull the ions through the phospholipid bilayer. The layer, in itself, is an entire world of reactions. When the calcium ions leave the cell and enter the bloodstream, the calcium ions are no longer balanced. This causes an immune response of cytokines. Cytokines are the T-cells and macrophages that is the body's natural defense mechanism. It also sends cholesterols into the bloodstream, ultimately contributing to the creation of the lipids that are “over-repairing.” Even though the calcium ions are innately tring to heal us from the trauma, when they are not in balance, this can be a reason why we get sick and can die.
QUESTIONS TO ANSWER
How do you restore calcium balance to the cell? Will that help to prevent the immune inflammatory reactions that are harming us?
Is the amount of calcium ion imbalance directly proportional to the severity of the trauma to the cells? Does a greater amount of trauma correspond to a greater reaction and greater illness?
Can you preventing the cellular trauma by avoiding toxins and poisons? By avoiding activities that cause physical injury? By not depriving your body? Getting good rest? Exercise? Wash your hands? Avoid places where other people are sick?
As the cellular trauma increases in severity, do the calcium ions increase proportionately? You you balance the equation, restore calcium ion homeostasis to the cell, in order to reduce the calcium ion reaction that stimulates the lipids and plaque?
Does Nitrous Oxide dilate the capillaries allowing the insults, thrombus and fat, to pass through more easily reducing ARDS symptoms?
Does Hyper Oxygenation and Nose Breathing help? Can the force and volume of the oxygen can help reduce the insults through and regulate the arterial gases? When a patient has breathing challenges, it is natural for them to gasp for air, breathing in and out of their mouth, instead of their nose. Can this cause hyperventilation. Can having patients breathe through their nose reduce some symptoms of hyperventilation?
Would the Buteyko Breathing Method work in some patients that are able to resist the urge to take in deep breaths, that can actually blow all their air out and hold their breath and when they breathe in, they only breathe through their nose? Can this method expel more of the carbon dioxide as they blow their air out and dilate their capillaries as they hold their breathe and then reduce hyperventilation symptoms as they breathe through their nose? Would high flow oxygen through a nasal canula increase the odds of nose breathing, and help patients breathe easier?
Would Prophylactic Blood Thinners work? Will blood thinners separate the blood and, therefore, also prevent the fat and lipids from forming larger globules and lower the rate of thrombi from coagulating?
Do patients that take aspirin or Advil or Aleve or other NSAIDS have reduced ARDS symptoms?
Would alcohol reduce ARDS symptoms? In a study by Gurd in the 70's, patients with a high blood alcohol content had a 17% reduced odds of having symptoms of ARDS.
Would antioxidants and vitamins increase cell strength and help tp protect them reducing the pathogens ability to invade them?
Would Lorenzo's Oil reduce ARDS symptoms through calcium ion homeostasis?
Would plaque reducing or plaque preventing medicines help?
Would EDTA, that used to be in toothpaste because it prevented plaque help? The plaque in your teeth is the same plaque that clogs arteries.
Would Statin drugs help?
We'd like to have help with the answers. Contact us if you can help.
We believe that when you control the process of the plaque formation, you prevent the symptoms and when you can prevent the symptoms, you have found the cure.
