About Bodensteiner Medical Research

Bodensteiner Medical Research (BMR) is a research educational organization that studies blood clots and diseases associated with them.

In the 19th century, Dr Rudolph Virchow was a famous pathologist who observed that venous blood clots formed inside legs, and noticed that clots in the lungs were the same as clots in the legs. He theorized that blood clots formed inside sore legs and then migrated from the legs into circulation and through the heart into the lungs. Virchow called migrating blood clots embolia.

Venous blood clots have a life cycle that often begins with deep venous thrombosis (DVT) in the legs. Pieces of DVT break off and migrate into circulation as venous thromboembolism (VTE) and some VTE become paradoxical emboli (PDE) when they pass through a hole in the heart between the two atria called a patent foramen ovale (PFO). PDE embolize into organs of the body including the heart or brain, where they cause transient ischemia with pain or sudden acute infarction followed by scar tissue formation. Usually VTE pass through the heart into the right ventricle go into the lungs where they are called pulmonary embolism (PE).

Each part of the life cycle alters different vital sign patterns and causes unique disease syndromes.

Blood clots are complicated and it will melt your brain if you think of everything all at once. So, take your time to see the whole picture, which is the Gestalt, and find joy in your journey as you learn more about venous thrombosis (blood clots).

Thrombophysiology: the logical study of blood clots

Dr Bodensteiner, aka Dr Bode, Dr Cletus Cogitatus is the son of Dr Cletus Herald Bodensteiner who graduated from Loyola Medical School in 1947. Dr Bode graduated from UCLA School of Medicine in 1972, completed anesthesiology training at UCLA Medical Center in 1975, and worked as Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology at the University of Wisconsin Hospital, Madison during 1976.

Dr Bode served as Chairman of the Anesthesia Department at St. Michaels Hospital in Stevens Point, WI before returning to Long Beach, CA where he served as Chairman of the Anesthesia Department at Pacific Hospital of Long Beach. He moved to Northern California in 1999 and worked at Ukiah Valley Medical Center in Ukiah and Howard Memorial Hospital in Willits. He is married to Cindy Bodensteiner, RN, and they enjoy spending time with their four shared children and ten shared grandchildren. 

Dr. Bodensteiner was certified in CPR and Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS). He assisted resuscitation of more than 350 cardiac arrests, and reviewed perioperative cardiac arrests with the Chief of Surgery. He is an active member of the American Society of Anesthesiologists, the American Heart Association, and the Heart Rhythm Society.

Cancer and Blood Clots

Dr. Saito aka Dr. Masa specializes in medical oncology and autoimmune diseases. He teaches anti-aging in Japan, the United States, and Europe. He is an expert on 5-ALA Hyperthermic Therapy for cancer treatment.

Dr. Masa and Dr. Bode share similar conclusions about the importance of metabolic acidosis after approaching human pathophysiology from different directions. Lactic acid appears to be an autoimmune toxin, which is the natural aseptic cause of chronic fatigue syndrome.

Dr. Saito published a popular book Korpertemperatur und Gesundheit, Wie wir durch Erhohung der Korpertemperatur unsere Vitalitat und Gesundheit fordern. 'Raise Your Body Temperature and Improve Your Health'; and he supports our kids project in Fukushima that gives aid to 290 homeless young students. He is a volunteer host of a popular antiaging talk show in Tokyo.

A Novel ECG Interpretation

Dr. McEdwards received his MS and PhD in engineering science from the University of California, Berkeley. He is a certified general engineering geologist, a certified hydrogeologist, and a licensed general engineering contractor.

Dr McEdwards locates groundwater by using percussion and electric potentials from water motion. He drives two steel posts five feet deep into the ground about eight feet apart. A percussion hammer strikes a stteel plate on the ground between the posts and generates sound waves that move hidden water inside hollow rocks. Moving water inside rocks generates electric potential that are measured by the steel posts that are connected by wires to an oscilloscope. Electricity from rippling underground water generates electricity, which locates hidden water pockets inside rocks.

The electrocardiogram (ECG) of the heartbeat is based on heart cell action potentials. Orthodoxy explains that millions of ventricular cardiac cell depolarizations generate QRS potentials. Moreover, ventricular cell repolarizations generate T waves.

Findl and Kurtz published ECG research in 1977 using left ventricular/aorta mechanical simulators. "EKG like signals were generated by the motion of the electrolyte through the simulators".

ECG waves make more sense if blood flow generates electric potentials. This novel ECG interpretation improves the explanation of the Q wave, T wave, long QT, and "re-entry circuits" observed inside the left atrium of the heart. .
