EXTRACELLULAR MITOCHONDRIA

EXTRACELLULAR MITOCHONDRIA

December 09, 2022

Historically, mitochondria have been thought of as exclusively membrane-bound cell organelles that generate chemical energy needed to power the cell's biochemical reactions. The term mitochondrion was coined by Carl Benda in 1898. The mitochondrion is popularly nicknamed the "powerhouse of the cell", a phrase coined by Philip Siekevitz in 1957. Chemical energy produced by mitochondria is stored in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP).

RADIO FREQUENCY RADIATION & 5G

RADIO FREQUENCY RADIATION & 5G

December 09, 2022

2018 study looked at the effects of repeated radio frequency radiation (RFR) exposures suggesting these can cause oxidative stress, neuropsychiatric effects, endocrine changes and more. RFR is created by cell phones, wifi, bluetooth, cordless phones, and other technologies. This electrical noise has impacted the nervous systems of humans and other animals that have evolved on an electrically silent planet.

DETOXIFICATION & THE FUNCTION OF ALLERGY

DETOXIFICATION & THE FUNCTION OF ALLERGY

December 09, 2022

Over the last 25 years, in westernized countries in particular, the prevalence of allergies in children and adults has soared. Challenge-diagnosed food allergy is as high as 10% in children.  According to the AAFA, 50 million Americans experience some form of allergy.

While allergy is typically viewed as a dysfunction or a disease, evolutionary biologist Margie Profet brings a disruptive perspective to our understanding of the phenomenon.

CHOLESTEROL & GALLSTONES

CHOLESTEROL & GALLSTONES

December 09, 2022

Gallstones are diagnosed in 10% to 15% of Americans each year. The stones form from components of bile in the gall bladder, a small pear-shaped organ beneath the liver that stores and releases the liquid bile into the small intestine. Bile, a yellow-green fluid made by the liver, consists largely of cholesterol, bilirubin and bile salts. The salts are derived from bile acids: “Seventeen enzymes convert cholesterol into bile acids, which are transformed into bile salts by the association with Na+ or K+ ions.“

CELL RECEPTORS & CELL THEORY

CELL RECEPTORS & CELL THEORY

December 09, 2022

A discussion of our specialized cell receptors begins with the cell membrane.

Although the Cell Theory was first formulated around 1839, the existence of the plasma membrane was not broadly accepted until later in the 20th century. The "fluid mosaic model” of the membrane developed in the 1970s offers an understanding of its sophisticated and complex mechanics.

HOW DO MERIDIANS WORK?

HOW DO MERIDIANS WORK?

December 05, 2022

In his article on “Scientific Acupuncture”, British acupuncturist Felix Mann (1931-2014) uses neurophysiology to partly explain that the mechanisms of the points/areas and meridians. Indeed, an explanation for ‘how’ acupuncture works has preoccupied practitioners. An early 1997 article in “Acupuncture in Medicine describes the mechanisms of acupuncture or acupressure at “local, regional (spinal cord) and general (brain) levels”: “The general reaction mainly activates the brain central mechanism of internal homeostasis.” [2]

This explanation, often called the “neural hypothesis” was discussed in a 2010 article ...

HYDRATION & MINERALS

HYDRATION & MINERALS

November 03, 2022

Our body has a set of complex thirst signals that include blood pressure, hormones – especially angiotensin II – and areas of the brain including the lamina terminalis. Some neurons of the lamina terminalis that are outside of the blood-brain barrier, monitor the fluid in the third ventricle “to determine its osmolality and the amount of sodium present” – which provides a snapshot of whole body hydration.

“Changes in blood osmolality correlate well with the subjective feeling of thirst in humans, and increased blood osmolality is probably the most important homeostatic signal for drinking in everyday life.”

Human Brain Waves

Human Brain Waves

October 19, 2022

Human brain waves are patterns of electrical activity, pulses that occur between masses of neurons in the brain.

Brain waves were first measured in hertz by Hans Berger in 1924 using an electroencephalogram (EEG).

They vary significantly throughout the day and in different states, depending on what one is doing and feeling. Higher frequencies dominate when one is alert or anxious, while lower ones are more active when we are relaxed, drowsy or asleep. At any given moment, areas of the brain will emit many waves with varying characteristics. 

These frequencies have been likened to a symphony of musical notes and sounds representing “a continuous spectrum of consciousness.”[ There are five well recognized brain waves. These are labelled simply after the Greek letters ...

Myocarditis

Myocarditis

September 14, 2022

Myocarditis is a disease that causes inflammation of the heart muscle, the myocardium. The inflammation, often in response to a viral infection, “enlarges and weakens the heart, creates scar tissue and forces it to work harder to circulate blood and oxygen throughout the body.”

USING THE 'HOMEOPATHY 1' VIALS KIT

September 12, 2022

The potency of the vials in the Homeopathic 1 vials kit can be considered equivalent to a ‘mother tincture’ without dilution.  Practitioners can use these together with our Multipliers kit to identify the specific potency that elicits the desired response. This approach turns these kits into a versatile frequency-based equivalent to a large homeopathic dispensary.

Neuropeptides, Receptors and Emotions

Neuropeptides, Receptors and Emotions

July 01, 2022

The early work in psychoneuroimmunology by American molecular biologist Candace Pert (1946-2013) brought specific attention to the role of neuropeptides, created by brain neurons, and their receptors throughout the body. As a graduate student, Pert discovered opiate receptors in the brain. She completed a PhD in Pharmacology in 1974.

In her 1997 book, Molecules of Emotion: Why you feel the way you feel, Pert posited that neuropeptides like endorphins actually connect emotions in a constant and flowing brain-mind-body bidirectional information network.

ANTI-AGING: THE ROLE OF FREE RADICALS & OXIDATIVE STRESS

ANTI-AGING: THE ROLE OF FREE RADICALS & OXIDATIVE STRESS

June 10, 2022

To help elucidate specific factors in skin aging, a 2015 study of humans and mice in Aging Cell examined “reductions in cell proliferation, collagen synthesis, extracellular matrix remodelling, and altered epidermal morphology.” And while acknowledging the role of hormones and external influences on skin health, researchers proposed that the drivers of aging skin cells are “reduced energy metabolism, higher mitochondrial oxidative stress and pronounced mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) deletions.” In short, the “mitochondrial free radical theory of aging.”
