MEDJUGORJE | TEARS OF BLOOD???

MEDJUGORJE TEARS OF BLOOD...SUPERNATURAL OR STRESS HAEMOLACRIA??



...The physiologic phenomenon of weeping blood also known as Haemolacria maybe a symptom of a number of diseases or due to environmental factors or stress related which results from a hypermanic state that may induce an increased pressure within the nasal cavity...

...since the tear ducts are connected a back pressure in the nasal cavity may cause blood to spill out into the tear ducts thus producing the manifestation of tears of blood...

..so too this may be prognostic of Munchausen syndrome ..meaning such a phenomenon may be self-inflicted...there is reasonable evidence to draw this logical deduction since in the video we only see the man himself with a couple of other bystanders..away from the regular crowds...and so one could conclude that these others may be complicit to the act or accomplices...since it would be easy to stage this display in like manner...

...after viewing the video it can be seen that a man of advanced age after traversing the steep climb  appears to collapse under his weight and we see that he is apparently weeping blood...before we can look to the supernatural we must say there appears in this case to be a logical cause...namely environmental factors such as the appreciated altitude coupled with the advanced age of the person..who knows what sort of concomitant ailments this man has...this would lead one to logically deduce that after a great deal of exertion traversing the incline his body succumbed to the rigours and he developed a severe nosebleed which led to the copious  effluviation of blood  from his eyes...

....here are a couple of medical documentations regarding haemolacria...

 “Its anatomical basis lies in the intimate connection of nose and eye via the lacrimal apparatus. An increase in pressure within the nasal cavity during epistaxis [nosebleeds] – for example, by pinching or blowing the nose, can cause retrograde flow of blood through the system and thus lead to bloody tears emerging from the ipsilateral eye. As our patient had longstanding perforation of both tympanic membranes, the blood in her nose was also able to travel retrograde via the auditory tube and middle ear into the external auditory canal. This led to the additional bleeding from the right ear”.

-Dr. M. Wiese 2003  Case study British Journal of Ophthamology

“In lack of a medical explanation for her condition, possible religious explanations have been posed. She could have an unknown disease that only she appears to be suffering from, but more skeptical views hypothesize that the case might be explained by the so called Munchausen syndrome by proxy, meaning her mother, seemingly the only one to witness her bleeding actually starting, is fabricating the story and somehow inducing the effect on the girl”.

-Rashida Khatoon (the girl who cries blood) National Geographic Documentary

“In the present case of bloody tears we could not detect any organic cause for haemolacria after complete local and systemic examination and through investigations. The presence of hysterical traits as confirmed by the consulting psychiatrist led us to label hysteria as a possible case’ of bloody tears in this case. [Other authors have] also reported cases of haemolacria in patients of hysteria but the mechanism of production of bloody tears in these patients remain obscure, so far”.

-Dr. B. Ahluwalia  Indian Journal of Ophthamology 1987 on a 15 year old girl who wept  blood

...As can be seen from the three Scientific citations above weeping blood can be linked to environmental factors which bring about an increase in pressure in the sinus cavity leading to backflow of blood into the eye through the tear duct...as well as psychologic factors such as hysteria or stress..or even someone using artificial machinations which aim to trick people into thinking that the subject is weeping tears....

..whatever is the case we must be ever vigilant and not jump to hasty conclusions since the phenomenon at MEDJUGORJE has already been censured by two successive local Bishops as well as the CDF and the ZADAR COMMISSION which stated it cannot be ascertained that anything supernatural is occurring regarding supposed apparitions....
