Think of Your Body As One Great Big Battery

Learn how to recharge your Body-Battery


Back in April, I spoke at the Best Answer for Cancer conference in San Diego. It is one of the most prestigious gatherings of some of the best cancer practitioners and researchers in the world. The information I learned there is not only pertinent to cancer patients, it is invaluable information for anyone who wants to live a healthy and long life. Of particular interest to me were the presentations made by Jerry Tennant M.D., a holistic practitioner in Dallas.

I’ve long understood the healing power of frequencies, and used them, to good effect at La Casa Spa & Wellness Center, the New York City holistic health center that I opened back in 1993. I use a variety of frequency scanning devices–the Metatron, NuVision, the Matrix Decoder, and my latest acquisition, the CellWellBeing.

Because the conference was specific for cancer practitioners, many of the speeches began with a nod to Otto Warburg’s discovery that cancer (and all other pathogens) cannot survive in an oxygen rich environment. This concept is accepted by both holistic and traditional practitioners and researchers. But what Jerry Tennant brought new to the table was an understanding that oxygen is completely tied into voltage. Voltage in the body is the same as in a light bulb or a battery; it’s the electrical charge. The amount of oxygen in a human cell is dictated entirely by the voltage of the cell. It’s a simple, one-to-one correlation.

low cellular voltage = low cellular oxygen
high cellular voltage = high cellular oxygen

Chronic diseases or illness conditions don’t exist without both low cellular voltage and low oxygen. And no chronic condition can be healed without cells grabbing onto more oxygen than they have been getting. But even if the cell makes a desperate and successful attempt to grab onto additional oxygen, low cellular voltage will make it impossible for the cell to hold onto the oxygen. For healing to take place, the voltage of the cell has to be upped. Voltage in the body is foundational.

On the level of voltage, our bodies are merely oversize batteries. Our cells count on the electrical energy of the body to absorb nutrients, remove waste and communicate with other cells. Without these processes occurring effectively, building and repairing tissues, bones and organs can’t take place. Tennant makes the important point that healing generally happens by making NEW cells, as opposed to correcting malfunctioning cells. But we need enough voltage to make new cells.

Harold Saxton Burr, Professor of Anatomy at Yale University School of Medicine, researched the electrical fields of organisms and published 93 papers on biological electricity. He found that measurable imbalances in the electrical field of an organ precede the onset of pathology.

“If the electrical imbalance is corrected, the disease does not manifest.” Harold Saxton Burr, Ph.D.

Cells are designed to run at -25 millivolts. Making new cells requires -50 millivolts. More energy is required to rebuild than to troll along. It’s like the difference between starting motion (as in making a car move) or continuing existing motion (rolling along on the highway). (I’ve always been told that the greatest wear and tear in a car is starting it.) In order to stay healthy, we MUST have enough voltage in our bodies to be able to make new cells because our old cells are ceaselessly dying. We need to replenish, and create new cells. On a cellular level, we are in a continuous state of death and resurrection. We make new macula cells every 48 hours; new gut lining every 3 days; new skin every 6 weeks; new liver every 8 weeks; new nervous system every 9 months.

Chronic pain is a symptom of low voltage. Cancer comes when our voltage is +30. When we develop cancer, we have switched polarities: we have gone from a health minus voltage to an unhealthy plus voltage.

Voltage is synonymous with pH. Our pH level is simply a measure of whether electrons are available in surplus (and thus are “electron donors”) or whether electrons are deficient (and thus are “electron stealers”). The minus sign means electrons are in surplus and are available to be donated. Electron stealers have a pH from 0 to 6.9 and are acidic. We call these free radicals; they have a positive electromagnetic pole and they spin left. They can be destructive to our well being. Electron donors, on the other hand, are our friends: they have a pH 7.1 to 14, are alkaline, and we generally refer to them as antioxidants. They have a negative pole, spin to the right, and make constructive contributions to our health. Of course, we need both. And, as Randolph Howes has documented, free radicals have their place in our lives and our health. Just because electron donors are our friends does not mean that free radicals are our enemies. As I said before, our bodies are in a constant process of dying and being born. We need to do both. (As Freud said: the two drives of all life: Eros and Thanatos.)

Voltage in the body is the same as in a lightbulb

Our cells operate best at -22 mv, and this voltage is the equivalent of a pH of 7.35. For our bodies to be healthy, we need to be slightly alkaline. When our voltage drops below -20 mv, we will begin to experience fatigue. As the voltage further drops, and with it, the pH level also drops, we become prone to illness. Cancer cells have a pH of about 6.3 or -40 mv. One of the best ways of monitoring the state of your health, and what direction your body is headed in, is to check your salivary pH first thing upon awakening. A salivary pH of 6.5 is equivalent to a cellular pH of 7.35.

I’ve always been confused about the meaning of pH measurement in terms of the difference between saliva and urine. Tennant clears this up. He explains that salivary pH is a rough indicator of cellular voltage; urinary pH is a rough indicator of the voltage in the fluids around the cells.

Chronic disease happens when we lose the ability to make new cells that will survive and be able to perform their assigned function. Low electrical voltage, low pH, and low oxygen interfere with the body being able to produce new cells. Generally when you have one, you have all three.

•The insides of most cells are made up of amino acids. (Thus, we need amino acids.)
•The inside of nerve cells is 50% cholesterol. (And obviously statin drugs that reduce cholesterol in the body interrupt this vital process of keeping nerve cells well fed.)
•Cell membranes are fat. (The brain is the fattest organ in your body and consists of at least 60 percent fat. Thus, we need to ingest fats to feed the brain.)
•Cells need electron-donor water. (Clean alkaline water fits this bill).
•Cells need vitamins and minerals. (Fulvic acids control this.)
•Cells need oxygen. (This is under the control of nitric oxide.)

Why cells get low in voltage (or, what are electron stealers):
•Being stuck in the sympathetic-on (fight or flight) position
•Scars (that short out muscle batteries)
•Ineffective removal of toxins by liver
•Lack of electron-donor water
•Dental infections (caused frequently by root canals)

Tennant feels that it is not possible to remove the toxins and clear the infected bone that is caused by root canals. Similarly, when I have seen pathogens that are specific to root canals — E. Faecalis is a leading one — on the Metatron or the Matrix Decoder (both bio-resonance diagnostic systems), it often happens that the person doesn’t begin their journey into wellness until the tooth is pulled. You can watch a video of Tennant discussing this HERE.

What charges up our voltage (or, what are electron donors)?
•Being grounded (being barefoot on earth)
•Swimming in the ocean, especially swimming with dolphins
•PEMF (pulsed magnetic therapy) restores optimal voltage in the cells by recharging their electrical current. Pulsing magnetic fields bathe electrically imbalanced cells in pure, raw energy, supporting their need for the proper electrical balance to regain or maintain metabolic functions and optimal health. Nearly all diseases can be traced back to disorders in the cells. The fact that pulsed magnetic fields act directly upon cell functions explains the high success rate and the broad application field of PEMF therapy.

Dr. Andrew Bassett, a researcher at the Bioelectric Research Center of Columbia University who has studied the effect of pulsed magnetic fields on the cellular function of connective tissue and function, says of PEMF:
“A wide variety of challenging musculoskeletal disorders has been treated successfully over the past two decades. These include nerve regeneration, wound healing, graft behavior, diabetes, and myocardial and cerebral ischemia (heart attack and stroke), among other conditions. Preliminary data even suggest possible benefits in controlling malignancy.”

Magnetic field therapy benefits your whole body even if you use it for a specific condition. This is because all of the actions of magnetic fields are happening simultaneously. Minor imbalances in cells in individual parts of the body can be very easily rebalanced before they become an obvious problem. The sooner you start using PEMF, therefore, the healthier you’ll be. If you start using this therapy in your 40’s, for example, many of the problems that typically beset people in their 60’s or 70’s can be avoided. (Read more about PEMF on La Casa’s website and read an article I previously wrote, devoted exclusively to PEMF. I have written extensively about it because I have witnessed and personally experienced so many astonishing benefits to it.

The survival of all civilization depends on humates. Humates are organic material that lives in soil, comprised of the salts of humic and fulvic acids. Without humates in soil, there is no plant life, and this deficiency causes profound negative effects all the way up the food chain. Human life on earth ends when our plants can no longer survive.

Fulvic Acid is created in extremely small amounts by millions of beneficial microbes that work on the decaying plant matter. It combines with a variety of minerals to create a complex molecular compound. Fulvic Acid works to activate the nutrients within soil so that they can be utilized by the cells of plants. It is often termed ‘nature’s miracle molecule’ and for good reason.

Unfortunately, modern farming practices have destroyed our soils, leaving them devoid of minerals. This has disrupted the proliferation of this miracle molecule in the soil, and therefore in vegetation and animals — in effect within our food.

Once humus from our soil is depleted, trace element availability along with phosphorus and calcium availability starts to decline. Anthropologists have observed this in many ancient civilizations. For instance, when zinc is depleted, both learning ability and fertility are lost, and that population dies. Analyzing the bones of the “mound builder” civilization of the U.S. Midwest has documented this. Bones found at the bottom of the mounds were in good health, whereas those found towards the top of the burials (or the end of the mound builders civilization), teeth and bone problems were very apparent through analysis of low-level zinc, calcium and phosphorus mineral content.

How our bodies use Fulvic Acids:
•Carries vitamins and nutrients to the right place in our bodies. Fulvic Acid is so powerful that one single Fulvic Acid molecule is capable of carrying 60 or more minerals and trace elements directly into our cells. This gives Fulvic Acid the ability to have a dramatic impact on all types of diseases and afflictions.
•Increases availability of minerals and trace elements. Minerals fuse with Fulvic Acid and because of its small molecular size, it has the ability to take these nutrients directly to all the cells of our bodies. Additionally, Fulvic Acid makes the cells more permeable and receptive to these nutrients. Essentially, Fulvic Acid mobilizes food to become our medicine.
•Activates digestive enzymes which are the life force of our bodies.
•Effective at neutralizing and detoxifying harmful toxins and pollutants including heavy metals such as lead and mercury. Fulvic Acid bonds with these heavy metals, a process called ‘chelation’, and then converts them into inactive compounds, which can be eliminated through normal excretory processes.
•Increases oxygenation of all the soft tissues within our bodies.
•One of the safest and most potent anti-viral substances available today.
•When used externally, Fulvic Acid can be used to treat abrasions, open cuts, wounds, leg ulcers, insect bites and numerous other skin complaints. Athlete’s foot can be avoided as Fulvic Acid displays powerful fungicidal properties and it can also be used to treat fungal toenails that are difficult to eradicate using conventional drugs.
•Reduces the inflammatory enzymes produced by the liver
•Restores electrolyte balance in the body

“You can trace every sickness, every disease, and every ailment, ultimately to a mineral deficiency“.

Being barefoot on the earth, or in grass, can charge our body’s voltage

When the body’s cells are sufficiently nourished, and free from toxins and don’t house too many free radicals, they are able to regenerate efficiently and are also able to detoxify and repair quickly.

Jerry Tennant sells a Fulvic Acid product on his website. There are other high quality Fulvic Acid products that can be found both in health food stores and on the internet.

Jerry Tennant’s BioModulator (which La Casa now owns) is an amazing device that I experienced first-hand. At the conference, I had a headache stimulated by a long-standing TMJ problem I’ve had. Dr. Tennant’s trusty assistant immediately recognized that my body was off kilter by putting her fingers in my ears, and observing that one finger was higher than the other. Through treating my sphenoid bone, which lies at the base of my skull, my headache was gone in three minutes. The sphenoid bone is crucial because when it moves out of its proper position, the other skull bones, the neck, the temporomandibular joint, and the spine are thrown out of position. The BioModulator resets the sphenoid almost instantaneously when it is placed on each side of the neck while outputting a low voltage of specific frequencies. The successful adjustment can be detected by observing that the shoulders, ears, eyes and hip come into balance, and are now evenly positioned.

As soon as I learn how to use Tennant’s BioModulator, I invite all to come experience it at La Casa I am confident it holds a crucial key to successfully resolving long-standing chronic health issues.
