Life at its core is a phenomenon that requires energy in the form of electrons to operate and to keep its structures intact. Living cells are internal combustion engines that must have the right fuel and lots of oxygen to produce energy. Visualize life's molecules snatching/donating electrons, electrons powering cells, electrons traveling through nerves and across fascia.
When electron energy is abundant, oxygen is abundant, immunity is strong and there is health, healing and celebration. But when sugars, electrolyte deficiencies, metals, acidity or damaged fats resist oxygen, the result is cellular suffocation, engine failure and energy shortages... disease.
We live in a competitive world that encourages clever deceptions to be perpetrated on the unknowing by the unscrupulous... and profit-driven medicine is no exception. This is why Linus Pauling was publicly assassinated and dozens of therapies that compete with the pharmaceutical monopoly have been suppressed or banned. Huge inputs of Vitamin C and many other related ideas are universally effective and can heal anything. The truth is just too obvious and inexpensive to be believed.
Vitamin C (as ascorbate) should be looked upon as the premier antioxidant, a cheap safe available electron source. The "electric vitamin" can dampen inflammation and raise body charge to maximize oxygen delivery to generate more life-energy, more electrons... and act as an oxidant in mega-dose by generating peroxides. Purely oxidative therapies and oxygen itself also save lives that would otherwise be lost. (Vitamin C = ascorbic acid and when acid neutralized by sodium bicarbonate, for example, it becomes sodium ascorbate or what is generally referred to as ascorbate.)
Electrons and electro-chemistry are not quackery or spooky New-Age energy medicine (yet frequency of molecular vibration, biofields, biophotons and energy waves are involved on other levels). We are talking about the electron states of life's molecules themselves, + or - , and the fact that like boys and girls, it is the gender and strength of charge that determines molecular relationships. Molecules with available electrons donate to or "marry" those with electron-hungry positive charges so energy in the form of electrons is constantly being transferred and exchanged; shared in bonds, taken by oxidants, given by antioxidants...all to make your biochemistry work and cells function. The molecular world is locked in an endless game of "electron grab-ass!"
Energy and Combustion
Oxidation is what happens when things burn or slowly rust; simply put, the removal of electrons by oxidants from other molecules or their chemical bonds. Well-oxygenated mitochondrial generators produce electrons as they "burn" electron-rich carbon bonds for cell energy. Immune cells operate on electrons, but use powerful oxidation to destroy unwanted debris. Oxidation deconstructs complex molecules and organized matter like bacteria or damaged cells.
Oxidative immune bursts are triggered by pathogens and toxins. When an immune response is prolonged there is a progression into oxidative stress, a state of electron exhaustion where cell molecules begin to be torn apart. Then the four horsemen of inflammation are released; pain, redness, fever and swelling. Heavy metals and radiations source electron hungry oxidant free radicals that add to the damage.
Inflammation = oxidative stress = bad ageing and disease
Electron abundance is facilitated by the charge condition of water itself, its electrolyte mineral content, and the integrity of membranes in contact with body fluids. Raising charge increases circulation and the delivery of vital oxygen and materials across cell membranes. The transport function of those membranes is critical and reflects the structures of the fats and proteins they are built of. So charge terrain depends not only on the electrolyte quality of body fluids, but the composition and conductivity of cell and mitochondrial membranes.
Electron-rich antioxidants oppose metabolic and immune oxidation...and the destruction of cell structures. Their strength can be measured on an ORAC scale (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity), the ability of a nutrient to quell oxidants and oxidant free radicals and their disruptive nature of snatching electrons from stable cell molecules. ORAC represents the solar energy contained in foods.
Oxidation = Energy Production and Immune Response/Inflammation
Electrons = Anti-Oxidants = Cellular Energy = Protection from Energy Production, Immune Response/Inflammation and Exogenous Free Radicals
It happens underwater!
The charge of "sea-water" that life's molecules swim in constitutes the matrix of your cell-filled aquarium and by starting there the energy of life can be raised to maintain health or restore it. An aquarium could be acidic and exhibit weak properties of polarity and charge and gobble oxygen... or be slightly alkaline and contain an oxygen-conducive electric potential (ORP, Oxidation Reduction Potential). Electric potential relies on optimum levels of electrolytes and pH buffers (such as bicarbonate, potassium, magnesium, sodium, chloride and calcium) that when in balance hold and enhance charge.
Charge and charge reversals activate or deactivate DNA function so various enzymes get transcripted or not. Even the building blocks of those enzymes assemble according to the charge terrain within the cell. Everything takes energy, electrons.
Charge and oxygen delivery form the real basis of any cure. Nutrition, toxic burdens/radiations/electromagnetic fields, lifestyle and emotional states all influence charge and thus oxygen levels. Troubleshoot each area to optimize biochemistry. We tend to pigeonhole symptoms into seemingly distinct diseases rather than recognize the gradations of oxidative stress and the descent into circulatory stagnation, cellular suffocation and malfunction that are common in all of them. Shouldn't this be the initial step, to address the negative sea-conditions at the root of disease?
