The human body is a remarkable bio-electrical system. It has all of the necessary structures, processes and basic electrical energy patterns available to assist in the management of any difficulty that it may encounter.
To understand how the QEnergySpa assists the body to detoxify itself we need to understand a little about how the body functions and in particular how our cells work.
Detoxification of the Body
Our bodies are constantly under attack from environmental factors. Toxins are increasingly becoming an issue of importance as our environment becomes more polluted. Most of us understand that there are pollutants in the air we breathe; the food we eat and the water we drink. The level and types of toxins surrounding us are far too great to list. Some of them occur naturally but most are man-made and it is the latter that are causing the most concern. While the presence of so many heavy metals in the foods we digest is a real concern, the greatest threat comes from all the artificial compounds that are being widely used, with little or no research into the dangers they present to the human body. An additional concern is the fact that the public is sufficiently ignorant of the potential dangers to unwittingly combine these toxins without any awareness thereof.
Similarly, the silent action of synthetic hormones is a constant threat of which we are oblivious. These can cause serious damage to the genetics of the individual.
There is now a way we can start to combat these problems, firstly by becoming aware that they exist and then by utilizing the amazing technology made available by the QEnergySpa. This innovative technology can not only assist in controlling, but also possibly in reversing, the damage our bodies have suffered.
To understand how the QEnergySpa assists the body in detoxifying itself we need to understand a little about how the body functions and in particular how our cells work.
The Basic Cell
While there are many cells in our body that perform different functions and have different internal structures, they all have similar basic functions. All our cells require water and they all have 3 basic components, the nucleus, the internal structure and the plasma membrane. Each of these components performs specific functions but they all take in water, metabolise it and eject a waste product called nucleic acid. This waste product is then dealt with by the body’s main cleaning systems, namely the liver and the kidneys. This natural cleansing is very important and when disrupted e.g. by the cell becoming clogged with toxins, problems begin to occur.
When the cell is functioning correctly it has a good flow of liquid (water) entering and exiting it. The outer membrane or plasma membrane is a selectively permeable barrier, meaning that it allows some substances to pass through it while excluding others.
When a substance penetrates the plasma membrane, without added energy from the cell, it is called ‘passive transport’. When the cell has to provide metabolic energy for the process, it is called active transport. The movement of water into the cell is an example of passive transport, while movement of amino acids and/or most ions across the membrane is active transport.
The Plasma Membrane
As well as the plasma membrane being selectively permeable, it has another very important function: it maintains a potential voltage difference between the internal structure of the cell and the intercellular fluid. Scientists are only now starting to realize the importance of the voltage that exists on the membrane wall itself. It is this electrical value that plays an important part in helping the membrane be selectively permeable. If this voltage drops too low, it contributes to the loss of the cell integrity. It has been scientifically proven that a very poor membrane voltage makes for an unhealthy cell.
Our bodies are more than capable of withstanding low levels of toxins but when these levels rise too high, a chain of events is set in action, commencing with the compromise of the integrity of the cell. This integrity can be affected from both the outside and the inside. The toxins that cause the problem do not necessarily come from an external source; this is because the cell itself produces a waste product that can be considered a toxin. Generally individuals' natural defence mechanisms are functioning correctly but, under strain, the system can fail, resulting in a toxin build-up. For most people the threat of toxin build-up is from the type of toxins to which we are now exposed. Some toxins do not remain in the intercellular fluid but become attached to the cell membrane wall and, when the body is operating at lower levels, problems can occur.
The numbers of problems that can occur from toxification are many and varied. There are however three basic causes that we can examine in order to understand how the body becomes toxic and also how we can resolve the problem by helping the body cope using its natural processes. These three causes are:
Toxification resulting from the cells' natural waste product, that is a build-up of nucleic waste from the cell itself.
Toxification resulting from low-level artificial toxins or man-made compounds.
Toxification caused by genetic alteration, genetically engineered materials.
It should be noted that although these processes are explained individually, they can and do all occur simultaneously.
1. Toxification by natural waste product.
This can occur as a result of two factors. 1. Liver and kidney function are low and thus all of the waste is not being extracted from the intercellular fluid (blood). 2. Toxin build-up occurs on the plasma membrane wall, restricting waste products from leaving the interior of the cell. In the diagram below the basic function of the cell is illustrated. It goes like this, water (W) enters the cell via passive transport, W then reacts with the internal structure B and the Nucleus A. The product of the reaction between W, A and B is Nucleic waste C. The cell is very efficient when fully functioning and all the W reacts on a 1:1 basis meaning that all of the W is used with an equal amount of C being produced.
Low Liver and Kidney Function.
When liver and kidney function is low the intercellular fluid becomes contaminated with waste product. Instead of just W entering the cell, the W becomes Wc meaning a combination of W and C, causing changes in the reaction inside the cell. Now there is a Wc, Ac, Bc reaction which is not how the cell is supposed to work. The cell is no longer operating efficiently and the metabolic energy is being wastefully used.
External Toxin Build Up
External toxin build-up occurs when toxins begin to accumulate on the outside of the cell. One of the causes is poor membrane voltage resulting in the toxins sticking to the membrane. This deprives the cell of the natural flow of W into it and also restricts the exit of the nucleic waste. Once again cell function is compromised, so the cell is no longer able to function correctly. The process is cyclical; the more the toxins build up, the less efficient the cell becomes and the longer the period for which this occurs, the harder it is to reverse the process.
There are two processes the body uses to solve this dilemma:
1. Raising the membrane voltage from an external source.
2. Utilising the white blood cells.
2. Toxification resulting from low-level artificial toxins
Toxification by low-level artificial toxins occurs when a toxin has managed to penetrate the cell membrane and enter into the internal structure. Toxins can achieve this in times of low cell integrity. White blood cells play a part in this process. One of the functions of the white blood cells is to clean the toxins from the plasma membrane of the cells. White blood cells damage the membrane during this process of toxin removal, leaving it temporarily vulnerable while it repairs the damage. Once a toxin has entered into the internal structure of the cell it causes problems. To eject the toxin from the cell, it requires metabolic energy to perform active transport, that is, the cell needs to use its own energy to eject the invader. If the cell does not have the spare energy, a build-up can start.
3. Toxification causing genetic alteration
Toxification causing genetic alteration is the most serious form of cellular contamination to which you may be subjected. We have already looked at the phenomenon of toxins entering a cell and causing problems but what happens if that toxin was an artificial hormone or carcinogenic substance? The problem now becomes a major concern because the toxin has the potential to alter the coding of the cell - to mutate. In this event, you end up with the nucleus and the internal structure incorporating the extra coding and this results in a new nucleus D and a new internal structure E. This can happen without your even knowing it is happening. Often it takes years before the effect becomes noticeable to the individual. These types of toxins lead to cancer and genetic disorders. Toxification of this nature is difficult, but not impossible, to correct.
Some of the effects of this type of toxin contamination are already becoming evident in the western world, where the use of genetic substances and hormones has been in use without public knowledge for some time. It has now become a scientific reality that these altered genetic patterns are passed on from parents to their offspring.
The Genetic Problem
Toxification of a cell at the genetic level means that the cell is no longer functioning as it was intended to. In this case, the effect that the toxin has had on the cell in this case is that it has caused a coding change to the cell itself. Thus you end up with a modified cell that is different to the original. If the nucleus and the internal structure were considered as A and B then the modified cell would have a nucleus and internal structure of D and E. Fortunately for us the alteration of the genetic coding in the cell is far more difficult than we are led to believe. To understand how the code can be restored we need to understand what the code is and how it was altered.
The human genetic coding is currently called DNA or deoxyribonucleic acid. As the name suggests, DNA is a form of nucleic acid. The question that should be asked is; is deoxyribonucleic acid really our genetic coding or is it a waste product produced as a result of the coding itself? It would appear that deoxyribonucleic acid or DNA is, in fact, the waste product produced by the cell, as a result of the genetic coding of the cell. What scientists have discovered is a crude way of fingerprinting the body’s primary excretion fluid. The coding itself until now has remained somewhat of a mystery. Before we go into the genetic coding itself lets summarize the basic DNA theory. It is believed that DNA is housed within the nucleus of the cell. The following is an extract from Encyclopaedia Britannica describing the nucleus of the cell and its function.
The nucleus is the information centre of the cell in all higher organisms. It is separated from the cytoplasm by the nuclear envelope and it houses the double-stranded, spiral shaped deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) molecules, which contain the genetic information necessary for the cell to retain its unique character as it grows and divides.
The presence of a nucleus distinguishes the eukaryotic cells of multi-cellular organisms from the prokaryotic (one celled organisms, such as bacteria). In contrast to the higher organisms, bacteria do not have nuclei; hence their DNA is maintained in the same compartment with all of the rest of the cellular fluids.
The primary synthesis function of the nucleus is the expression of selected subsets of the genetic information encoded in the DNA double helix. Each subset of a DNA chain (called a gene) is coded for the construction of a specific protein out of a chain of amino acids. However, information in DNA is not decoded directly into proteins. First it is transcribed, or copied, into a range of messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) molecules, each of which encodes the information for one protein (or more than one protein in bacteria). The mRNA molecules are then transported through the nuclear envelope into the cytoplasm, where they are translated, serving as templates for the synthesis of specific proteins.
The nucleus must not only synthesize the mRNA for many thousands of proteins but must also regulate the amounts synthesized and supplied to the cytoplasm. Furthermore, the amounts of each type of mRNA supplied to the cytoplasm must be regulated differently in each type of cell. In addition to mRNA, the nucleus synthesizes and exports other classes of RNA involved in the mechanisms of protein.
The DNA is supposedly contained within the nucleus. DNA samples taken from the body are usually samples of hair, skin or blood which is processed to attain a DNA fingerprint. While this may not sound unusual, technically it is interesting because if the sample was blood (which contains mostly red blood cells and intercellular fluid). Red blood cells do not contain a nucleus where the DNA is hypothetically housed.
What the QEnergySpa does to your Cells
The QEnergySpa enhances the bio-electrics of your cells. As discussed above the cells in your body contain an electric charge. This charge is not like the electricity you are familiar with in your home. The first thing the unit does is to increase the charge on the plasma membrane surrounding the cell. This applies to all cells throughout the body. This also has an effect on the internal structure of the cell because the electrical energy being supplied to the cell is compatible with the metabolic energy of the cell. This effectively increases the available metabolic energy the cell functions and, once achieved, a number of things commence.
By increasing the electrical value of the cell membrane we also increase the value of the electrical field that results from the electrical potential on the cell membrane itself. Boosting and extending this field to the proper parameters, affects the toxins that have become attached to the cell membrane wall. It also helps to restore the integrity to the actual membrane itself so that the function of being selectively permeable is restored to proper operation. Restoring proper cell function increases the body’s ability to start to process the toxins effectively again. The liver and kidney start to remove more of the toxins reducing the load on the rest of the systems.
Once the toxins are detached from the cell membrane they become free to be moved by the intercellular fluid. With the extra resources now available, the body’s natural processes take over and remove the toxins through the normal systems/channels. This also has the effect of once again, letting clean W (intercellular Fluid) flow through the membrane correctly.
With the clean W now flowing through the system, the cells can start to re-balance the internal levels of W and C. The clean intercellular fluid begins to restore the action of the nucleus (A) and the internal structure (B). The effect on A and B is to cause the cell to function so that Ac and Bc balances, in order that the Ac and Bc return to the proper AB function. In effect, the cell has become cleansed with the added benefit of the extra metabolic energy.
The cell and the intercellular fluid are now restored to normal function excepting that the metabolic energy now available to the cell is greater.
With the cell in a much healthier state and having an increased metabolic level of energy, it can begin to function properly. The process of purging the toxins that have entered the cell during the period of its poor health, or of actively transporting them from the internal structure, can now begin. The extra energy available makes this process possible again. It is important to note that these processes are only possible because of the energy input to the cell from the QEnergySpa.
