Purpose of the Experiment

The experiment is set up to show how salts, sugars, minerals and metals dissolved in the blood are influenced by gravity and are observed to open and close the silicone tubing which is clearly shown and represents the narrowing of veins in chronic venous insufficiency, varicose veins and chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency CCSVI, in multiple sclerosis, ms, depends upon our posture and correct alignment with the direction of pull from gravity. 17 years of research into Inclined Bed Therapy has shown avoiding sleeping flat by elevating the head end of the bed 15 cms or 6 inches higher than the foot end of the bed and avoiding poor sitting posture, by making sure your seat is always higher than your knees to provide a slope down towards your knees, rather than the familiar bucket seat found in cars and wheelchairs has provided people with impressive symptom relief, without surgery and without drugs.

The second part of this video set shows the experiment and an explanation is narrated.


Experiment Results: When coloured salt solution is introduced at the top of an open-ended water filled tube suspended by the centre 2 meters vertical with both open ends immersed in 2 water filled glass bottles, at ground level a tension is applied to the water in both sides of the suspended vertical loop of tubing. A slight narrowing of both legs of the experiment is observed before the salt solution is introduced, but not significant enough to show on video.

Once introduced at the T junction / top of the experiment, gravity immediately draws the salt solution down and this is shown clearly on Part 2.

This causes a drag behind the downward flowing salts affecting all of the water molecules inside the whole tube and the water molecules inside the open topped vessels, representing both the phloem in trees and the arterial blood flow in humans and animals.

Yellow food colouring was added to the vessel to show clearly the return flow generated by the downward flow. Here we see the yellow salt free water drawn up the opposite side of the tube that contains the downward flowing salt solution, representing the xylem in trees and the venous return blood flow in humans and animals.

This happens because the falling red coloured salt solution applies tension to the water molecules and it is this applied tension that is demonstrated to pull on the inside wall of the tube drawing the return flow soft silicone tube in causing it to collapse, while the downward flowing side that contains the salts causes the tube to bulge slightly and to neck immediately behind the falling salt solution.

I have argued for 17 years that a simple density flow and return system operates in the body and not just in the arteries and veins but in the nervous system, the lymphatic system, in skin tissue, the skeleton, the eyes and respiratory tract. In fact every single cell and every molecule of fluid in the body must obey the same rules observed experimentally!
