A Clear Health Correlation
Recent studies have shown a direct correlation between solar flare activity and human biological health effects. Interacting with the Earth’s magnetic field, systemic physiological episodes are activated, initiating profound emotional and behavioral mood swings. Also symptoms such as headaches, palpitations and general confusion can be precipitated by CMEs or Coronal Mass Ejections. These conditions can become especially acute during solar storms which then leads to a conflict in human emotions. The former head of the European Geosciences Society, Michael Rycroft states that 10 to 15% of the population maybe adversely affected by geomagnetic health problems.
Prominent Russian scientist Alexander Chizhevsky researched the familiar 11 year sunspot cycle, and found an alarming rise in the incidences of social upheaval, revolutions and rebellions in 1913 a year of unprecedented violence. As magnetic fields intensified, there was also a corresponding rise of mass killing incidents.
The prestigious South African Psychiatry Review suggested a direct link between magnetic storms and suicide in a paper called: “The effect of geomagnetic storms on suicide” Data revealed altered neuron activity during magnetic field exposure along with pineal gland impairment crucial for circadian rhythm regulation.
Clinical depression is not uncommon during periods of geomagnetic storms as a 1994 study suggested. In the British Journal of Psychiatry, documented cases showed as much as a 36 percent increase in the number of hospital admissions for depression related cases.
Other studies have revealed a significant relationship between solar flare activity and human consciousness. Psychological response may become imbalanced and impaired along with the central nervous system. Additional physiological effects may also include such symptoms as lethargy, exhaustion, nervousness, irritation, nausea and general anxiety.
The emission of photon waves can interfere with cellular redox modulation that may have a potential impact on organ health. This can result in higher cases of carcinogenic pathology episodes.
Solar Seasonal Peaks
Oleg Shumilov of the Institute of North Industrial Ecology Problems in Russia in a research documenting the Earth’s geomagnetic field from a period between 1948 to 1997, has found there are three seasonal peaks occurring annually from March to May, one in July, and finally another one in October. A notable match was detected in these geomagnetism peaks with the rise in numbers of bi-polar, depression and mood swing disorders.
In another New Scientist article, a correlation has been suggested between solar storms and pineal gland activity. Pronounced electromagnetic activity can produce abnormally high levels of melatonin in the gland inducing drowsiness and sleepiness.
Solar Flares and Their Effects Upon Human Behaviour and Health
A growing body of evidence is revealing that solar flares and geomagnetism have a significant impact on biological systems. This is especially true for persons that are already physically overstressed. Becoming aware of the earth’s geomagnetic energies can be a step toward mitigating some of these adverse symptoms. Understanding chronobiology or biological rhythms can address some of these geopathic issues. Proper nutrition, attitude and exercise are a time tested health regimen. This in turn can create the optimal conditions for rapid body healing.
Symptoms of Low Potassium
Potassium Deficiency Symptoms and Signs
Indeed, knowing the symptoms of low potassium can help you make informed decisions about your health.
However, before we delve into potassium deficiency symptoms, let's briefly discuss what it does to help us maintain vibrant heath.
Potassium is a mineral that harbors electrical properties when it is dissolved in the fluid part of the blood and, as such, it is classified as an electrolyte. It is a nutrient that is critical to life as it is required for the proper functioning of cells, including the cells of the heart muscle. It works closely with its cousin sodium - another electrolyte – in maintaining the body's proper balance of fluids and acid-base. More specifically, potassium controls the amount of fluid inside cells while its cousin sodium maintains the balance of fluid outside cells.
Potassium aids in proper muscle contraction and helps to keep the heart thumping regularly. It is also essential for conducting nerve impulses, aids in energy metabolism, and it even helps to maintain normal blood pressure. In fact, evidence suggests that diets high in potassium may help to protect against hypertension, strokes, and cardiovascular disease.
Lastly, potassium regulates the transfer of nutrients through cell membranes, but this function has been shown to decrease with age.
Symptoms of Low Potassium
The following are potassium deficiency symptoms and signs:
•Muscle Fatigue and Weakness
•Abnormally Dry Skin
•Nausea and Vomiting
•Low Blood Pressure
•High Cholesterol Levels
•Extreme cases, cardiac arrest
Symptoms of Low Potassium
Who's at Risk?
The following people should pay very close attention to their potassium levels and be aware of potassium deficiency symptoms. Some of the causes of potassium deficiency include:
•Long-term therapy with corticosteroids and adrenal hormones
•High sodium diets and low in fruits and vegetables
•Excessive intake of licorice over prolonged periods
•Excessive intake of carbenoxolone
•Profuse sweating over a period of several days can reduce stores of potassium
•Excessive use of laxatives
Symptoms of Low Potassium: Health Conditions at Risk?
The following health conditions can cause a potassium deficiency. As such, one should also be aware of potassium deficiency symptoms.
•Surgical Operations Involving the Bowel
•Extensive Burns and Injuries
•Chronic Respiratory Failure
•Inflammatory Bowel Disease
•Excessive Excretion of Aldosterone
Should you be concerned about the symptoms of low potassium, it's important that you consult with a qualified health care provider.
