Gordon, that is me, needs to "hang In" until we can get our "Procedure" compelted.


Here is what is suggested.

PLEASE other Elders, as well as all... BUILD ON THIS

I wrote the paper to address how nitric oxide disruption causes hypercoagulation and inflammation and vasoconstriction in the blood vessels. Stanford's Dr. John Cooke has a terrific book on this for heart patients:
The Cardiovascular Cure
We discussed how the same program was beneficial for MS patients (even before Zamboni's work was published) in terms of endothelial health and nitric oxide balancing- He's a terrific doctor, and at the forefront of endothelium research...and the man that introduced me to Dr. Dake.

Things that disrupt nitric oxide and cause vasoconstriction:
lifestyle: smoking, eating saturated fats, not enough physical exercise, stress (cortisol) lack of vitamin D, lack of vitamin B12, high glucose
toxins/environmental: heavy metals such as cadmium in drinking water and mercury in amalgam fillings, diesel exhaust, pcbs in plastics, pesticides

niacin, B12, vitamin D/sunshine, omega3 oil
proteolytic (protein eating) enzymes such as nattokinase, serrapeptase, bromelain
high-powered antioxidants such as quercetin, EGCG
herbs/spices like garlic, curcumin, ginger, ginseng
lifestyle: aerobic exercise, meditation, tai chi, laughter, deep breathing

Maybe add a list of medical, chemical dilators, Zap? That's not really my area...but folks may want to know-

Excellent post. I didn't see this information before.

Can high altitude be considered a vasoconstrictor?

HP, I think high altitude comes into play because there is less oxygen at high altitudes? I've been affected by that: once as a child hiking Mt. Haleakala, and once as an adult hiking Mt. Haleakala (after which I had optic neuritis, bam!). My advice: don't hike Mt. Haleakala. ;)

No worries there, Cece ... I can't even climb my front steps, lol.
