CELL MEMBRANES, VOLTAGE AND THE SUN
By building up our cell membranes we allow the light of life to inculcate us into Grace, or communion with the All. The stronger the light the more resistance we have to the forces of decay and distraction and all that would undermine Spirit’s ineffable intent.
Life is electrical. Without enough donor electrons (from oxygen) the vitamins, minerals and enzymes do not work and pathogens grow out of control. The cell membranes are capacitors used to store electrons to provide voltage for running the cell. When cells run down and lose voltage they attract less oxygen from the bloodstream, causing them to become even more rundown, toxic and starved…thereby absorbing even less oxygen. The cell membrane acts as a dielectric capacitor much like a storage battery for electrons and transfers them to the cytoplasm upon demand. Within the cell the micro-tubular cytoskeletons are the resistor, while the mitochondrial respiratory activities represent the demand (load). Voltage is the force that pushes electrons through a circuit or across a membrane to produce a current or flow of electrons or ions. Electrons flow from areas of higher concentration in the cell membrane to the lower concentration inside the cell until equilibrium is achieved; the potential gradient difference is voltage. The typical electrochemical gradient of membrane potentials in animal cells are on the order of 100 millivolts (that is, one tenth of a volt). Disease begins with a blockage, stagnation or disruption in the flow of energy, while healing involves increasing the cell voltage. The aim of the electron transport chain is to preserve as much of the potential energy of electrons for generation of ATP — the chemical currency of life. It takes twice the voltage rate to make new cells as it does to maintain cell metabolism.
In electrical terminology, the cell membrane functions as a combined resistor and capacitor. Resistance arises from the fact that the cell membrane impedes the movement of charges across it. Capacitance occurs due to the fact that the lipid bilayer is so thin that an accumulation of charged particles on one side gives rise to an electrical force that pulls oppositely charged particles toward the other side. The double-layered cell membrane consists of lipid molecules with hydrophilic (electron conducting) carboxylic acid groups on the outside and water resisting hydrophobic (electron insulating) cholesterol-hydrocarbon tail chains on the inside of the membrane. O2 being a small non-polar molecule can pass freely through the phospholipids bilayer.
Proteins embedded in the cell membrane act as gates to allow selected ions to pass across the membrane depending on a particular voltage. The positive charge of hydrogen atoms attracts the negative charge of oxygen. The electron rich Essential Fatty Acids (EPA and DHA) in the cell membranes attract the oxygen necessary for metabolism. The positive charge of the hydrogen atoms attracts the negative charge of the oxygen atoms. DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) is important for maintaining the fluidity and function of cell membranes, particularly in the retina and the brain. By providing the electrons needed for absorbing oxygen into the nerve cell Essential Fatty Acids improve blood oxygen delivery to the brain thereby promoting new nerve growth, efficient brain function and brain development. For the body to convert the fatty acids in flax to DHA, you need a healthy functioning liver and the proper nutrients, and plenty of good bacteria (probiotics) in your gut. Every cooked or processed substance we take into us rallies the forces of the immune system, instigating an all out inflammatory assault, which breaks down our form and weakens our resources. Defense is no way to grow! Building up our cell membranes at least makes us more resistant to the antibiogenic onslaught in the current age of breakdown and renewal.
German biochemist Dr Johanna Budwig discovered that man made oils known as trans fats (or partially hydrogenated oils) get into our cell membranes (where cholesterol should be) and destroy the electrical charge. Without the charge, our cells start to suffocate and without the oxygen, the only way cells can generate energy is anaerobically. Processed fats are treated to prevent oxidation wherein they loose the ability to combine with protein and become water-soluble. Dr. Budwig found that blending unsaturated flax oil with the sulfur-containing proteins in cottage cheese made the omega-3 rich oil water-soluble. Unsaturated fats are chains of fatty acids with approximately 18 links. Some of the links allow an association with proteins, making the fat water-soluble and thus able to permeate the entire body. By making cell membranes more permeable and “magnetic” to oxygen the flax oil/cottage cheese blend is said to dissolve tumors and prevent cancer. Oxygen is then able to increase cellular energy and rejuvenate the cells, inhibiting anaerobic microbes, preventing fermentation and killing cancer cells.
Dr. Budwig asserts that unsaturated fats are fundamental in recharging the body’s electro-magnetic field and to generate a store of electrons for recharging cell membranes. These electrons highly attract oxygen and stimulate cell respiration. Johanna also investigated the relationship between fats, electrons, photons, and the solar energy from the sun. The electrons also attract photons from sunlight by means of magnetic fields, caused by the electron “spin.” However one’s own wave-length must correspond to the absorption of solar energy…ie: the electron-rich highly unsaturated fats must be present as a resonance system for the sun's energy. Resonance occurs when a form of radiation has a similar frequency as a body part. Johanna viewed the human body as an antenna for the sun and the interplay of the sun with the electrons supplied by our food as the governing principal for all vital health of the body. However if the cell membranes are composed of plastic fats they cannot resonate correctly with the photons from the sun and so oxidation, inflammation and melanoma occur. Processed fats are the wrong shape to resonance-interact with sunlight and biophotons correctly and so free radical are created.
Over half the oil found in dark green plant leaves is Linolenic acid (green leaves contain 1% or less oil). It is even more concentrated in the membranes of the chloroplasts where photosynthesis takes place. The pi-electron clouds of the cis- double bonds in LNA absorb photon energy from sunlight striking the plant leaves and become excited like electrons in laser materials. The pi-electrons transform the solar energy into chemical energy and LNA (cis-linolenic acid), and other even more highly unsaturated oils transports that energy wherever it is needed in the body. Pi photons can be captured by electrons that are in resonance with the photon. An abundance of these electrons, which are tuned to the solar energy frequency, exist, for example, in many seed-oils. Saturated fats and trans-fats alter the electronic charge of the unsaturated oils in cell membranes, decreasing the cells ability to store and receive electrons from the sun. Electron-rich seeds (flax, hemp, chia), natural aromatics from herbs and spices, fruits which are rich in phytochemicals and pigments that correspond to the colors of the photons of sunlight — all these increase the absorption, storage and utilization of the sun’s energy.
The electron transfer, magnetic coupling and entanglement involved in the Lifeforce and life processes requires the correct valence, spin polarization, and orbital state of the electrons…ie: the mass of substance composing life must be of the correct geometric shape and energy state in order to abide in wholeness (field uplink) with the environment. An increase in pi-electron density by capturing the sun’s vital energy means we can achieve the superior mental functioning necessary for Gnostic or visionary levels. Remember according to Essene law it takes 49 generations of raw Essene living to create a Christ, because cooked fats especially disrupt the flow of electrons, biophotons and consciousness in the body, thereby reduce its potential for healing and cosmic consciousness. A Christ is simple a whole person with perfect field uplink with the cosmos. Misshapen fats in the cell membranes means a loss of electron storage for cell voltage, loss of coherency and impaired communication, leading to the terminal separation, hopelessness and the degenerative complex of the anti-human or Borg. The Borg body is solar phobic…that is it out of sync with the sun. And because it is out of sync it is entropic, and the sun will break it down. The Borg is the collective projection of our stuck energy. Use the sun mostly at dawn and dusk until your cell membranes are sufficiently rebuilt with Omega 3 fatty acids and your antioxidant saturation is sufficient. www.alchemylab.com/seeds_of_a_new_gold.htm
Having a good supply of electrons from correctly shaped fats in the cell membrane, charged by solar photons, provides the energy needed to drive the synthesis of ATP in the mitochondria. While a low transmembrane electrical potential reduces ATP production and leads to diseased somatic and neuronal cells, as well as increasing bacterial and viral reproduction. Dormant Schwann cells, need an adequate transmembrane electrical potential to differentiate and regenerate damaged nerve tissue. While pathogenic organisms only reproduce when their transmembrane electrical potential falls, so keeping the body’s voltage high prevents infection by the decomposers. Electromagnetic medicine works on this principle of supplying electrons to recharge the body’s batteries. (See Bioelectromagnetic Healing By Tom Valone).
Doctor Budwig saw that solar photons as the purest form of energy for the health the bodymind. The resonance in our biological substance is reliant on photons from the sun and so the body must be in proper condition to receive it. This relationship to the sun’s energy is improved when we eat electron rich fats, for it is the electromagnetic field of electrons that attracts the photons of sunbeams. The difference in spin selection in capturing the photonic energy determine whether the light energizes the cell or causes oxidation (stealing of electrons). To obtain the correct resonance Doctor Budwig recommends adding flax seed oil to the daily diet and deleting preserved foods and processed, plastic fats. A more palatable maintenance version of Dr. Budwig’s recipe is to blend 2 tablespoons of cold pressed flaxseed in 16 oz low-fat cottage cheese with the juice of 1 lemon. The mixture is most effective if the flaxseed oil and low-fat cottage are thoroughly blended as in smoothies, spreads, dip or dressings. Add lemon juice, champagne, herbs, garlic, fruit, peppers etc...Use in association with fresh ground chia, hemp or flaxseed. Flax oil by itself is missing all the co-factors to aid in fatty acid metabolism such as magnesium B6, B12, Vit C, Vit E, zinc, etc…
The qualities of EFAs that make them essential to life, (absorption of oxygen and transformation of solar energy), causes them to decompose and become rancid when exposed to air and light, but as long as we get our essential fatty acids by eating live whole seeds the lifeforce within us is charged with vitality. Alpha Linolenic Acid (LNA) is so unstable that when it is pressed from seeds, the pressing must be done in the total absence of light and oxygen. It must be handled in this way right through to the packaging stage, then quickly refrigerated or frozen. Finding fresh oils is practically impossible...they can be stopped going rancid by putting a few drops of ratfish oil in them...the strongest antioxidant. To get the same amount of Omega 3 fatty acid that you get from the 1 tbsp. of flaxseed oil, you would have to eat at least 5 tbsp. of flaxseed. Flax seed is the richest source, containing over 50% of its fatty acids as LNA. Chia and kukui (candlenut) oils contains about 30% Hemp seed oil contains about 20% LNA.
To summarize, the veil of separation and discombobulation involves non-human glycoproteins in cell membranes from meat eating, demineralization, cooked food/fire, damaged fats destroying cell membrane charge...generating fermentation energy cycle/cancer/acid/hypoxia/pathogens/toxicity, loss of electromagnetism-cuts bodymind off from environment, brainfry/inflammation/oxidation, resistance-impedance to biophotons, and a lack of grounding, negative ions and solarization etc...

HEMP SEED—“Raw” Hemp Seed is the single most perfect food for rebuilding the cell membranes and nerve sheaths needed for sovereignty. Dr. Jerry Tennant mentions the need to enhance the body's bile making abilities (or take supplemental bile) in order to digest the fats needed to "rebuild" the liver in order to metabolize the fats well. The components of hemp seed serve this whole rebuilding process as people with gallbladder problems are able to absorb Hemp Seed oil where they could not digest other oils and hemp seed removes obstructions of the liver and gall bladder. Hemp seeds have the most complete edible and usable protein in the vegetable kingdom. In terms of nutrient content, shelled hemp seed is basically 34.6% protein including the perfect protein Edestin and all nine essential amino acids with a high content of sulfur-containing ones methionine and cysteine. Hemp seed is 46.5% fat – a third of which is Omega 3 and 11.6% carbohydrate. Hemp seed is also a good source of the antioxidant Vitamin E which helps to preserve its Omega 3 content. Hemp seed also has the following components needed for rebuilding the cell membranes and nerve sheaths: Lecithin for the protective sheaths surrounding the brain and nervous system and it helps in the breakdown of fats and enhances liver activity and enzyme production. It’s derivative Choline is needed for nerve impulses from the brain throughout the nervous system and for liver and gall bladder function; and acetylcholine is crucial for short-term memory. Hemp seed also contains inositol which promotes hair growth, reduces cholesterol levels, and is calming to the nervous system. Hemp seed also contain phytosterols, or ‘plant hormones’ or phytoestrogens, which can help to reduce blood cholesterol levels, regulate hormones, and cell metabolism.

VEGAN CELL MEMBRANE BUILDING
Raw vegan alternatives to Dr. Budwig’s flaxseed/cottage cheese combination could be ideal considering the radiation now in the environment. We could make dehydrated crackers, breads and pizza crusts with flax, hemp and chia seed combined with sprouted grains like buckwheat, quinoa, amaranth. Raw nut cheese and seed cheeses are great alternatives to dairy cheese. Plus Hummus spreads can be made with slightly sprouted buckwheat ground up with the soaked seeds of pumpkin, sunflower, sesame, combined with red peppers, garlic, parsley, brewers yeast, miso, lemon juice, and antioxidant spices like cumin, turmeric and Thai panang curry paste, which may be blended with flaxseed oil. Nori roll ups or cabbage rolls could used with these spreads along with alfalfa sprouts, cilantro, avocado, cucumber, red peppers, olives, boiled eggs etc….
METHIONINE—The sulfur containing amino acid methionine is the "start" amino acid in the protein synthesis process, and is therefore the beginning of every single protein made. Methionine is an intermediate in the biosynthesis of cysteine, carnitine, taurine, lecithin, phosphatidylcholine, and the body’s main antioxidant glutathione. Plant-based sources of methionine include sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, peanuts and lentils. Cysteine and methionine are found in foods such as brazil nuts, fish, cottage cheese, poultry, yogurt, egg yolks, red peppers, garlic, onions, cabbage family, oats, and wheat germ. The Aztecs grain amaranth is between 15-18% protein including the amino acids lysine and methionine; and Quinoa's protein is high in lysine, methionine and cysteine. L-Cysteine and L-Methionine are the sulfur amino acids that form "keratin," which is the protein structure of hair, skin, bone, cartilage and connective tissue. Methionine is also an important intermediary in the maintenance of cell membranes as 98% of phospholipids are phosphatidyl choline (lecithin), which has developed from diacylglycerine by methylation with methionine. Phospholipids are fat-soluble components of the cell membrane, phosphatidylcholine. The maintenance of the integrity of the cellular membrane by phosphatidylcholine is critical to all of the basic processes in human biology, including communication between cells, flow of information and bioenergetics.
Methionine assists in the breakdown of fats and assists with the digestive system and removes heavy metals from the body and also acts as an antioxidant as sulfur inactivates free radicals. Lipotropics help the liver to process fats, or lipids and prevent fat from accumulating in the liver. Methionine is considered a lipotropic agent and works with choline and inositol to help prevent excess accumulation of fat and cholesterol in the liver by increasing the liver's production of lecithin. The important lipotropics in human biochemistry are inositol, betaine, choline and methionine.
Methionine also promotes the excretion of estrogen and protects the kidneys. All methylation reactions in the body (except one) require an active form of the amino acid methionine called S-adenosylmethionine (SAMe). SAMe is a key physiological agent formed in the body by combining the essential amino acid methionine to adenosyl-tri-phosphate (ATP). A deficiency of methionine, vitamin B12, or folic acid can result in decreased SAMe synthesis. SAMe is also required in the manufacture of all sulfur-containing compounds in the human body including glutathione and various sulfur-containing cartilage components. Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a form of sulfur is important for joint health and helps form connective tissues. The sulfur normally provided to the body by MSM is required for healthy collagen and keratin which are essential for strong hair, skin and nails. MSM also has proven antioxidant benefits which can disrupt or alter damaging chain reactions of lipid peroxidation in the cell membranes.
In the evolution of life on earth life learned to use sulfur to protect against oxidation, hence sulfur is in the body’s most abundant natural antioxidant, glutathione. Sulfur is also used for conjugating methyl groups to toxins by Methylation. Methylation attaches toxins to the amino acid methionine, whereby toxins are methylated and then excreted in the liver. This detoxification pathway seems to be disrupted in autistic individuals. Not only that, but disruption can lead to oxidative stress which results in many health problems. When oxidative stress is high, the need for extra glutathione becomes a limiting factor on the amount of methylation possible in the liver. Dr. Richard Deth found autism and other attention disorders like ADHD, schizophrenia and Alzheimer’s disease can be attributed to impaired function of the D4 subtype of dopamine receptor due to high oxidative stress and reduced folate-dependent methylation reactions, including their regulation by dopamine and growth factors, and their inhibition by neurodevelopmental toxins. One line of autism research looks into the Methionine/Glutathione Transsulfuration Pathway, especially with regards to the build-up of the oxidant homocysteine when there is insufficient Vitamin B6 to convert it into cysteine.
To keep methylation in balance the body must regenerate methionine from homocysteine about three times a day. High homocysteine levels cause the telomeres (DNA fuses) to shorten more rapidly due to oxidative stress thus can aging and age-related diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, heart disease, and impotence. The oxidation chemistry of homocysteine corrodes long-lived proteins such as collagen or elastin and fibrillin. The high level of homocysteine will auto-oxidize and react with reactive oxygen intermediates and damage endothelial cells lining the blood vessels. It is biosynthesized from methionine and can be recycled back into methionine or converted into cysteine with the aid of B-vitamins. To avoid high homocysteine levels take 1 or 2 B-complex daily, and Betaine or TMG (trimethylglycine).
Betaine, also known as Trimethylglycine is a methyl donor [other such nutrients are S-adenosylmethionine (SAMe), folic acid, and vitamins B6 and B12]. Betaine or TMG is very crucial for the appropriate functioning of the liver, cellular reproduction and the detoxification reactions in the body. A methyl donor is simply any substance that can transfer a methyl group to neutralize detrimental materials in the system and translate them into supportive substances. Many important biochemical processes rely on methylation, including the metabolism of lipids and DNA. TMG is found in a variety of plant and animal sources, however, most TMG in food is destroyed during cooking. It is particularly found shellfish and in vegetables like beets, spinach, and broccoli. TMG has been shown to help protect the liver and raise S-adenosylmethionine (SAM-e) levels, and is used in the conversion of homocysteine to methionine. Low dose betaine supplementation leads to immediate and long term lowering of plasma homocysteine in healthy men and women. Betaine helps in the production of several brain chemicals and hence improves mood, energy, wellbeing, alertness, concentration, and visual clarity. Typical daily dose is 500-1500mg with other anti-homocysteine nutrients: B6, B12, folic acid, & choline.
