Electron Deficiency Syndrome

Permit me to preface this article by saying I am NOT trying to sell you an Earthing mat! But I am going to open up a new way of looking at earthing in general.

earthing
Positive electrical fields pervade our body; a state never before encountered in human history.

Billed as a ‘new’ ailment for the modern electronic age, Electron Deficiency Syndrome is the state we can become when exposed continually to electric fields.
(Like sitting here with my laptop, typing).

From the hundreds of electrical fields we come into range of daily, we end up with a net positive electrical charge.

As you know, here at AlkaWay we are keen researchers of health with a strong leaning towards studying the difference between our paleolithic metabolism ‘then’ – in Paleolithic times, and how the same body responds to modern day stresses.

Certainly here is one such situation, where most of us live in an electrically supercharged environment that simply did not exist even a hundred years ago, much less ten thousand. It’s not hard to measure the charge we accumulate and it’s not hard to also measure the same charge after we ‘earth’ ourselves, as our Paleo ancestors did every time their bare foot touched the earth.

‘Earthing’ mats are being sold as the answer to a modern and real problem. Many of us live in rooms, offices, houses where we have no ability to ‘drain’ this accumulated charge back into the earth. So earthing mats are sold which allow us to ‘earth’ through our home electrical system’s earth wire.


 

earthingAs I learned more about earthing and studied the very positive results from recent university tests, in a report on mercola.com, two things stood out.

1. Inflammation seems to be the major effect of Electron Deficiency Syndrome, and as Dr Mercola says,

“If you Google the word “inflammation,” you’ll come up with more than 62 million links. This is indicative of just how much of a problem inflammation is. Inflammation is the root of virtually ALL of our chronic diseases. So, the question you should ask next is, what’s CAUSING all of this inflammation? It may very well be a deficiency of electrons—at least, this may be one of the most significant factors.”

2. Dr Mercola related that water with a negative charge may be similarly beneficial, stating:

“Even water is influenced by the Earth’s electrical energy. Water in contact with the Earth has a structure that makes it conducive to healing. When you are grounded to the Earth, it is thought that the negatively charged electrons you are receiving may help increase the structure of the water in your cells—just as water increases in structure when a negative charge is introduced by an electrode.”

Now… perhaps you’re not aware of Dr Mercola’s history with water ionizers. Some years ago he made a blistering attack on water ionizers with no real scientific support for his claims. We in the industry were stunned. In a matter of days the reason was revealed. he had made a deal with a water filter company, Aquasana, relabelled their fairly ordinary non-ionizing filters, and sold them in a huge ‘special offer’.

But here he is suggesting exactly the opposite to his previous assertion that negatively charged – ionized – water is bad for you.

Now he is saying that ” the negatively charged electrons you are receiving may help increase the structure of the water in your cells—just as water increases in structure when a negative charge is introduced by an electrode”.

So I’m wondering if he’s thrown the baby out with the bathwater. Of course earthing is good. I love to walk barefoot on the Earth anywhere I can. It calms me and I’m sure that the reports now coming in of the results of reversing Electron Deficiency Syndrome are all true. Scientific studies so far show:

  • Reduced inflammation of muscles after exercise
  • Pain Reduction
  • Better Adrenal function
  • Improved Immunity
  • Reduced renal excretion of calcium and phosphorus during a 7- to 8-hour period of sleeping grounded (which reflects a reduced risk of osteoporosis)
  • Decreased blood glucose levels (reducing risk for diabetes)
  • Decreased free tri-iodothyronine, and increased free thyroxin and TSH (meaning better thyroid function)
  • Accelerated immune response following vaccination (as evidenced by gamma globulin concentration), which would suggest a more robust immune system.

But here’s my point.

Every glass of water from a water ionizer/filter, be it one that uses electrodes or not, is loaded with free hydrogen carrying a negative ionic charge. One glass of water has more antioxidant effect than a bowl of oranges. So let’s explore this a little more so you can see clearly where I’m going.

According to Dr. James Oschman, biophysicist and coauthor of Earthing: The Most Important Health Discovery Ever?,

“It looks to me, from my study of biophysics and cell biology, like the body is designed with a semi-conductive fabric that connects everything in the body, including inside of every cell. I refer to this system as the living matrix. Those electrons that enter the bottom of your foot can move anywhere in your body. Any place where a free radical forms, there are electrons nearby that can neutralize that free radical and prevent any of those processes: mitochondrial damage, cross linking of proteins, and mutation or genetic damage. So the whole fabric is basically an antioxidant defense system that is in every part of your body.”

And as Dr Mercola says,

“If you Google the word “inflammation,” you’ll come up with more than 62 million links. This is indicative of just how much of a problem inflammation is. Inflammation is the root of virtually ALL of our chronic diseases. So, the question you should ask next is, what’s CAUSING all of this inflammation? It may very well be a deficiency of electrons—at least, this may be one of the most significant factors.”

“Dr. Stephen Sinatra, cardiologist and Earthing expert, in discussing the zeta potential of Red Blood Cells that causes decreased blood viscosity, when exposed to an electrical field, says that within minutes of grounding, your zeta potential quickly rises, meaning your blood cells have a greater charge and actually repel each other. This action causes your blood to flow more easily and your blood pressure to drop. When your zeta potential is lower, your blood cells tend to clump together, which is unfortunately what most people’s blood looks like when they are not grounded.”

But.. Dr Mercola..

This is what I’ve been hearing for years in discussions about ionized water! I have seen and heard literally thousands of stories from water ionizer owners that mirror the effects Dr Sinatra is talking about. I’ll go further. Ionized water carries negatively charged hydrogen ions (atoms) into the body. They react with free radicals. They neutralise positive charge.

Dr Mercola says.. and I agree.. 

“Free radicals are primarily produced via metabolic processes, although you also get them from the foods you eat, the water you drink and the air you breathe. Your immune system is the main generator of free radicals, and it’s in operation 24 hours a day. In the process of oxidizing invading pathogens and disposing of damaged cells, your immune system generates reactive oxygen species (ROS), which are molecules short an electron or with an electron imbalance—they take away electrons from the cell or pathogen.”

And yet.. he endorsed one form of natural antioxidant (grounding) and rejects another as a way to alter the free radical overload in the body. He rejects a proven antioxidant water that thousands of people tell me affects many health conditions including inflammation, that has scientific reports demonstrating its effect on free radicals, and is available 24/7 to anyone with a water ionizer no matter whether they are earthed or not! 

I am not in any way reducing the ‘good news’ of a natural method of reducing Electron Deficiency Syndrome. I totally agree that earthing is a great concept. But let’s acknowledge that the direct infusion of an equal and opposite electrical charge in the form of antioxidant water is most likely at least as effective and possibly a bit more convenient.

whiteUS2blackAnd right now I declare my interest.

I have been drinking antioxidant ionized water for 13 years. I have introduced many thousands of people to the concept. In the last two years. My company, AlkaWay, have been developing a water ionizer filter that does not need electrodes, electrolysis chambers, electricity or transformers. This new technology does not bring yet another electrical field into our home, (like present electric water ionizers) yet produces water equal to or or higher effective antioxidant content than an electric water ionizer.
