When it comes to maintaining your health and well-being, many people take action only after an injury occurs. This is natural as we tend to seek a state of homeostasis or equilibrium (homeostasis in the human body is the steady functioning of internal, physical, and chemical conditions such as body temperature) which is best seen in the cells within our bodies.
Our bodies draw a fine balance in cell health to allow quick responses to any incident or injury, and also to prevent constant over-action; our cells are designed as self-sustaining. They regulate resource intake and even regulate cell death or apoptosis (apoptosis is the natural and controlled death of cells which is necessary for growth or development). This regulation is done to maintain cellular function and to prevent a chain reaction affecting other cells’ performance. Because of this, a cells health walks hand-in-hand with overall health. Dr. Raymond Hilu, among other medical professionals, showed this in the published journal: Forum on Immunopathological Diseases and Therapeutics. Many ailments begin with decreased cell function, and proper treatment seeks to reverse and repair this malfunction.
In order to understand how the cells can start to malfunction, we need to first understand how cells work within their environment. Nutrients enter the cell through ionic pumps and channels, which act as gateways into and out of the cell. An Ionic pump is a protein which moves ions across a biological membrane, against a concentrated gradient (think fish swimming upstream). Ionic pumps are highly controlled, but ionic channels behave much more passively.
The two major forms of ionic channels are voltage and ligand-gated channels. In voltage-gated channels, a cell opens to the outside when there is a difference in the typical charge gradient of the cell’s interior compared to the exterior. Think of a door opening, when the inside temperature of a house and the outside temperature are greatly varied. The door opens to equalize the temperatures.
This is known as a membrane potential and can range from -40 mV to -80 mV to allow for some variance, but also permit a quick response should the cell need to adapt.
With voltage-gated channels, this response is in the form of the channel opening to allow ions to flow freely and cooperate with other channels in restoring the membrane gradient. This interaction is amplified by the presence of multiple cells, allowing the cellular environment to react to stresses.
In ligand-gated channels (a ligand is a molecule that binds to another, usually larger, molecule) a regulatory ion must be present to attach to the channel and open it up.
Once the wanted ions are moved, a regulatory signal closes the channel and the regulatory ion detaches.
To relate to the previous example, someone (a regulatory ion) must be present to open and close the door.
In both cases, it is important to remember that charge separation (the amount of positive and negative charges in a structure or molecule) creates a gradient that permits a delicate ebb and flow of ions into and out of cells.
The membrane potential is maintained on the scale of millivolts (one thousandth of a volt) to prevent excessive interaction with the exterior and with other cells. In a way, this potential is crucial in defining cellular health on an individual cell scale and overall cellular environment health.
As we ingest substances, it’s common to find toxins and unintended chemicals introduced into this cellular environment. Small amounts can be easily dealt with as the ion transports can assist to restore cellular balance by releasing ions as necessary.
However, when an excessive amount of a toxic substance is ingested, the body can find itself pushed out of homeostasis. Toxins and chemicals can interfere with the membrane potential, effectively opening voltage-gated channels, allowing undesirable ions to enter cells, or preventing ligand-gated channels from opening and denying the cell essential materials.
Presence of heavy metals can create excessive external charges to persist, further draining cells of needed ions as the membrane potential is compromised. This cellular stress can lead to the destruction of cells and decreased cellular function.
In order to remedy this situation, two events must occur: Removal of the toxic components and restoration of the cellular membrane potential.
Changes in diet or medication can help, but often serve as a temporary solution. Ideally, we should be able to introduce a component that would be:
1) Natural to the cellular environment
2) Able to interact with excessive ions
3) Restore the membrane potential through non-destructive means.
Double Helix Water has been shown to have an electrical charge character based on its 8 water molecule structure known as a stable water cluster.
The nature of water is to create a dipole with a positive and negative region. A dipole is a molecule in which a concentration of positive electrical charge is separated from a concentration of negative charge.
With a water molecule, the oxygen side of the molecule carries a negative charge, while the side with two hydrogen atoms has a net positive charge.
With stable water clusters, 8 of these dipoles stack in a concerted structure that accentuate those regions.
This robust crystal of water can behave like an electrical buffer, attaching to ions long enough to separate them and allow more stable water clusters to interact. The effects are thought to be two-fold: cells are reset to a normalcy that allows the cell to function correctly and healthily and the foreign electrical factors (excessive ions or free-radicals) are neutralized by a water structure. Stable water clusters may serve as a lightning rod for these chemical and toxic strikes, diverting them from interfering with the normal processes of the body and allow the body to repair itself.
Self-healing begins, like most healing, with imbalance.
The body relies on signals to cue repairs and many times this goes on without us being the wiser. When it comes to cellular health, the sheer number of cells that must be maintained would dizzy anyone, leading to only reparative measures being taken. Stable water clusters are thought to serve in this role without bringing more harm to the body by tackling the issue at the electrical level, where the machines of our cells begin to malfunction. Many treatments overlook this level of repair. Rather than fix the problem, we often destroy the cells and start over. Stable Water Clusters offer a chance to restore a very basic malfunction while not interrupting the normal cellular process.
It is in this way that healing should occur and it’s not a stretch to do what the body aims to do already.
Sometimes, it just needs a little helping hand.
