Blood clotting

Coagulation of blood is complex process with many contributing factors.

This page looks at the rather surprising and complex role of the heart’s electrical system in powering the red blood cells to help them maintain the negative ‘zeta’ potential that helps stop them from sticking together.

The blood is energised in the ventricles of the heart by rotation of the blood cells within an electric field and exposure to an oscillating field of 500Hz which comes from the de-polarisation of the cardiac muscles.

This results in a constant physical vibration of the red blood cells at ultrasound frequencies of 1.2 MHz,

The blood cells are now surrounded by an electrically charged bi-layer, are vibrating within an electrically charged fluid and are separated by repulsing electrostatic forces. The result is that an oscillating electro-acoustic wave is formed which transfers energy along the blood stream to the periphery

The effect on the blood cell itself is that, with the help of a few mineral ions and the magnetic properties of haemoglobin, the vibrations set up an internal electric current (green) which necessarily creates a toroidal magnetic field (blue) and hence a magnetic dipole field is set up with the North pole here pointing up the page.

So the vibration causes the toroidal magnetic field which maintains the negatively charged zeta potential which both stops the cells from sticking together and helps form the acoustic energy wave which will fuel chemical activity in the muscles. But all this requires energy and it all comes from the heart.

An experimental set-up, shown, found that electromagnetic fields from 500Hz to 5000Hz dramatically altered blood coagulation characteristics. With no fields, the zeta potential diminished and clots formed within minutes. When the field was restored, zeta potential was restored and clots dissipated.

Blood fibrinolytic activity is reported to decrease during thunderstorms and experiments show that blood clotting is affected by very low strength magnetic fields of both a static and time varying nature.
Reports of sudden cardiac arrest in train drivers subjected to long periods of electromagnetic radiation now suggest interference with the blood’s natural vibration.
