“Water is life’s mater and matrix, mother and medium. There is no life without water. ”
Albert Szent-Gyorgyi, Hungarian Biochemist Nobel Prize in Medicine, 1937
Water is really an enigma to most people. They know they need it, but they don’t seem to know why or in what form. I’d like to have a dime for every time I’ve heard that “water is water.” Well, I can assure you that while it may all look the same, it is definitely – and conclusively – not all the same. And, here’s what I mean.
Healing is Voltage
Cells are designed to run in an environment of -25 millivolts (mV). However, it takes -50 mV to make a new cell. ( If you put a cell in a petri dish and place an electrode inside and outside the cell membrane, you’ll measure -90 mV. However, cells in our bodies don’t exist in a petri dish, but are designed to run in an environment of -25 mV. Thus, we have to have voltage ( electrons, energy, chi, prana—whatever you wish to call it) to make cells work and to make new cells to keep the body repaired.
In addition to voltage, you have to have the essential materials to make cells, and you have to deal with any toxins that are present that will damage cells as fast as you make them.
Thus, we have to have voltage to keep our cells running and to make new ones.
What is the source of that voltage?
Traditional medicine acknowledges that there is voltage in the heart ( Electrocardiogram ), brain ( Electroencephalogram ), and muscles ( Electromyogram ) but basically refuses to consider the paradigm that all cells need energy to work. Most physicians have it in the back of their minds that mitochondria use energy in the form of Adenosine triphosphate ( ATP ) to make the chemistry of the cell work somehow, but since there is no blood test for ATP, it is far from the mind of daily practice in traditional medical care.
When electrons are running through a conductor such as a copper wire, they are there or not. If the switch is on, you have an electron donor. If the switch is off, there are no electrons.
However, a solution provides a different situation. The solution may be an electron donor or an electron stealer. One measures the voltage of the solution with a sophisticated voltmeter. By convention, if the solution is an electron donor, one puts a minus sign in front of the voltage. If, however, the solution is an electron stealer, one puts a plus sign in front of the voltage. For example, if your pH voltmeter measures +150 mV, it means that the solution is an electron stealer with one hundred fifty mV of stealing power. If your pH voltmeter measures -200 mV, it means that the solution is an electron donor with two hundred mV of donating power.
The following chart begins to help us understand the difference between electron donors and electron stealers as they relate to the human body.
Water has electrical energy that can be measured in millivolts (no, you won’t be electrocuted), and that capacity for electrical charge can be positive or negative and lost or gained over time. What is imperative to understand here is that positively charged hydrogen atoms or ions (H+) make water acidic, while a hydrogen atom that bonds with an oxygen atom produces a negatively charged (OH-) molecule of water that is alkaline. The science goes way beyond what we care to pursue, but this is what you need to know.
The positive or negative characteristics of water are called the oxidation reduction potential (ORP) because of their ability to promote or neutralize free radicals in the body. Acid and alkaline are always at war within us and, because we constantly overload our systems with acid food and drinks (the H+ positive hydrogen ions) – acid usually wins and our bodies become acidic over time (read cancer). Conversely, if we concentrate on eating foods and drinking water with negative hydroxyl ions (OH-), we increase the negative charge or negative oxidation reduction potential. These OH- ions then bind to the H+ (acidic) ions to neutralize the free radicals that cause the “rusting” or “rotting” of the human internal terrain.
Electron stealers cause damage, are a pH from 0 to 6.9, are acidic, are free radicals, are the positive pole, are destructive, and, at the atomic level, spin left.
You will hear statements like, “All disease occurs when you are acidic.” What this is really saying is that all disease occurs when your voltage is low or in an electron-stealer state.
You will hear statements like, “Alkalize or die.” What this means is that you must have electrons available to do work, or your cells will die.
A free radical is a molecule that is missing electrons. It is like a mugger looking for someone’s purse to steal. When a free radical steals electrons from the cell, it damages the cell.
An antioxidant is a molecule capable of giving away electrons. Thus, when your mother says, “Eat your vegetables,” she is saying that the vegetables contain electrons that are good for you.
Increasing the alkalinity leads to decreasing the oxidation. The effects of free radicals or oxidation of the cells can be better described as hepatitis, cirrhosis and cancer in the liver; pancreatitis, diabetes and cancer in the pancreas; and nephritis, nephrosis and cancer in the kidneys. While all are bad, do you see the common denominator to all of these? Yes, it’s cancer.
Now, here comes the really important part. Dr. Jerry states, “We maintain our health and heal primarily by making new cells. To make a new cell requires a voltage of -50 mV”
I know this is getting a little long and involved, but it is imperative for us to get a true understanding of how this fits into the “ionized water” schematic. So, lets listen to the good Doctor’s analogy: “Now, lets consider my thumb. My thumb is running at a voltage of-25mV. It is pink, feels fine and works well. Now, I hit it with a hammer. The thumb is red, swollen, hot, and has a pulsing pain. It has automatically gone to -50 mV. This is necessary to make new cells needed to replace the ones I damaged with the hammer. At -50 mV, blood vessels dilate and dump raw materials such as proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals, etc. into the neighborhood. I need these raw materials to build new cells. I also need —50 mV to have the energy to turn these raw materials into new cells.
“As soon as I finish making enough cells to replace those I damaged with the hammer, my thumb goes back to -25 mV. It is normal and I am happy. Now, lets assume that I ran out of voltage before I was able to make enough new cells to replace those I injured with a hammer. My voltage dropped to —10 mV. Now, I am stuck in chronic disease. I cannot heal unless I can make new cells. I cannot make new cells unless I have -50 mV and all the raw materials I need to make new cells. In chronic disease, my thumb hurts all the time, it is white, and doesn’t work very well.
“Without the ability to achieve -50 mV and the necessary materials to make new cells, you cannot maintain your health and you suffer aging and chronic disease. You also are unable to repair injuries so they can also lead to chronic disease. You don’t need drugs to heal. You need to make new cells that work to heal. To make good cells, you need voltage and a good diet. You also need to remove toxins from your body that damage cells and make you obese.”
Okay, let’s summarize. We need -50 mV to heal – not drugs. We need voltage, a good diet, and detoxification. By George, I think we’ve got it! We are vindicated and validated by another great doctor. Understand here that the —50 mV to heal simply does not magically appear. No, it comes from alkaline pH, flooding the body with those billions of antioxidants ( Hydroxyl ions ) — that highly negative charge ( mV ) – that neutralizes the free radicals within the body and brings with it the surge of alkalinity. Yes, folks, I’m talking about Electrolyzed reduced water ( ERW ) . And, specifically, the “right kind” of Electrolyzed reduced water ( ERW ) . This is real science – that stuff that the “proof is in the pudding” is made of.
Once one begins to understand that chronic disease and healing are controlled by voltage, one must ask the following questions:
Common Ways Electrons Are Taken from the Human Body.
Acidic water (tap water, chlorinated water, fluoride, most bottled water)
- Carbonated beverages
- Caffeinated beverages (pop, coffee, tea)
- Alcoholic beverages
- Cooked food
- Processed food
- Healers/doctors (when they touch their patients, they lose electrons to patients)
- Hugs (which transfer electrons from one person to another)
- Parent holding a sick child (child gets well quicker, but parent is left tired) Moving air (wind, air conditioning, fans, convertibles, and hair dryers)
