“What keeps us alive
it is not matter,
but a sublime electric current.

Nuno Nina

All chronic diseases and majority of severe diseases originate at a cellular level, due to a breakdown of electrical current. This is manifested by a decrease in the potential of the cell membrane, a theory advocated by scientists such as Dr. Robert O. Becker and Dr. Bjorn Nordenstrom (Chairman of the Nobel Committee).

In 1991, two scientists, Dr. Bert Sakmann and Dr. Erwin Neher, received the Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine for their studies on the permeability of microcurrent in the human cell membrane, which subsequently consolidated the microcurrent status in Medical Science. Nordenstrom further demonstrated that a low voltage current can restore normal physiological state to cells with potential losses (Nordenstrom, 1983).

What happens when the cell loses electrical potential?

In a healthy and young cell, its electrical potential voltage is typically between -70 and -90mV which ensures energy production from mitochondria and protein synthesis can be transported through the cell membrane (Cheng et al., 1982; Mannheimer JS, 2005; Wolcott LE et al., 1969).

With the advancement of age and in the course of a disease, this electrical potential decreases to -40 or -50mV – the so-called cellular aging – and, similarly, pain, inflammation, edema or ischemia can occur even as it decreases up to -15mV.

This value is the threshold at which the cell undergoes cancerous mutation, the potential is so reduced that this, due to its pure instinct for survival, will begin to multiply uncontrollably.

All diseases will relate to a value for cell membrane lost electrical potential.

The therapist’s role is to reverse this process and return the cell to its healthy electrical potential, ideally greater than -70mV.

If the cell is operating normally, it will go through a process of depolarization, reaching, for example, 10mV. As a consequence, potassium enters the intracellular medium to the point of causing hyperpolarization to -90mV or -110mV, with an immediate re-equilibration for a range of -90mV to -70mV.

However, when there is no equilibrium in the content of the extracellular medium, namely salts, minerals and amino acids, the cell is not allowed to repolarize to the correct values: this is the starting point for many imbalances that ultimately lead to disease.

How do we know if we are in balance?

Acid vs. Alkaline Medium

In normal situations, sodium is prevalent in the extracellular environment whilst potassium is present within the cell. This creates a difference in membrane potential.

If more sodium is introduced into the cell and potassium is released, this extracellular environment becomes acidic due to the large presence of hydrogen ions and the membrane potential decreases to -12mV. It is in this scenario that multiplication starts to happen, the result of a response to the acidic extracellular environment, giving rise to cancer cells.

On the other hand, if the medium is alkaline – excessive sodium output to the extracellular medium and potassium entry into the cell – the cells become acidic and degenerate. Although there is no proof yet, this hypothesis could explain diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, etc.

What can be done to reverse this situation?

– Includes previous analyses, performed in the clinic and those prior to the first appointment, to identify the state of the organism and the areas of intervention (Electrical Analysis or Biological Terrain Analysis – blood, saliva and urine – according to the cases).

Electrotherapy session (TimeWaver Frequency)

Subsequent Appointments| 1h00m

 

Electrotherapy sessions (TimeWaver Frequency).

– Possible complementary treatments (Nanopulse system, Infrared Sauna…).

– Repeat analyses for re-evaluation (to the therapist’s discretion).
