About Bodensteiner Medical Research

Bodensteiner Medical Research (BMR) is a research educational organization that studies blood clots.

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

Venous blood clots have a life cycle that begins with abnormal metabolism that produces metabolic acid, which triggers the formation of deep venous thrombosis (DVT). Walking or running releases pieces of clots from the DVT, and clots migrate into circulation. Migrating clots are called venous thromboembolism (VTE). After clots pass through the heart they stop in the lungs where they become pulmonary embolism (PE).

Each part of the thrombo life cycle causes symptoms and unique vital sign patterns. BMR theorizes that blood clots inside the heart valves cause arrhythmias with palpitations that cause the sick sinus syndrome.

Blood clots are complicated and thrombophysiology will melt your brain if you think of everything at once. So, take time to see the whole picture, which is the Gestalt, and find joy in your journey as you learn more about palpitations, brain fog, and night sweats that are associated with blood clots.

Thrombophysiology: the logical study of blood clots

Dr Cletus Gary Bodensteiner, aka Dr Bode, is the son of Dr Cletus Harold Bodensteiner who graduated from Loyola University School of Medicine in 1947. Dr Bode 'Junior' graduated from UCLA School of Medicine in 1972, completed anesthesiology training in 1975, and became an assistant Professor of Anesthesiology at the University of Wisconsin Hospital, Madison in 1976.

Dr Bode served as Chairman of the Anesthesia Department at St. Michaels Hospital in Stevens Point, WI before he returned to Long Beach, CA where he served as Chairman of the Anesthesia Department at Pacific Hospital of Long Beach. He is married to Cindy Bodensteiner, RN, and they enjoy spending time with four shared children and ten shared grandchildren. 

Dr. Bodensteiner was certified in CPR and Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS). Moreover he participated in the resuscitation of more than 350 cardiac arrests. He is a 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 and is an expert on 5-ALA Hyperthermic Therapy for cancer treatment.

Dr. Masa and Dr. Bode approach human pathophysiology from different directions. Lactic acid appears to be an 'autoimmune' toxin, which might be the natural aseptic cause of the mysterious 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 PhD in engineering science from the University of California, Berkeley. He is a certified hydrogeologist and a licensed general engineering contractor.

Dr McEdwards locates groundwater by measuring electric potentials from underground water motion.

In this process, he drives two steel posts five feet deep into the ground about eight feet apart and connects wires rom the steel poss to an oscilliscope that measures electric potentials between the posts. A percussion hammer strikes a flat steel plate on the ground between the posts. Sound waves travel through rock and cause water ripples inside hollow rocks that contain water. Rippling water generates about 2 millivolts of electric potential recorded by an oscilloscope, which locates hidden underground water. Solid rock without water does not generate electric potentials and the oscilloscope records a flat line.

Orthodoxy teaches that electrocardiogram (ECG) waves of the heartbeat originate from heart cell action potentials. Millions of ventricular cardiac cell depolarizations generate QRS potentials and millions of ventricular cell repolarizations generate T waves.

McEdwards uncovered evidence that disputes the ECG orthodoxy taught by modern medial science.

Findl and Kurtz published ECG (electorcardiogram) 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 Q waves from the broken heart syndrome caused by inferior MI, and the long QT from pulmonary valve VTE, or "re-entry circuits" observed inside the left atrium of the heart during paradoxical SVT. Moreover, V tach, V fib, and asystole correspond to terminal agonal cardiac motion when fatal acidosis causes cardiac arrest.
