The cell is an amazing structure, full of complexity and movement, readily multitasking and generally humming along like the well-oiled machine we know and expect it to be. There are a few basic functions required of all cells. These include ATP production (cellular energy), nutrient absorption, waste removal, and regeneration, in addition to performance of predetermined functions based on the cell’s type and location in the body.
A great deal of this action and communication occurs at the cell membrane, which has switches connecting directly to the nucleus of the cell. Cells normally go through at least 7,000 chemical reactions per second, which is an indication of the complex and continuous process involved in adaptation. This level of complexity is beyond the scope of simple biochemistry. By using electromagnetic stimulation, modern measuring techniques have increased the understanding of electromagnetic bio-communication that makes the coordination of the living system possible.
It is hugely important that the cell membrane maintain an appropriate “charge” or voltage. A healthy cell has a transmembrane potential of about 80 or 100 millivolts. A cancer cell, for comparison, has a transmembrane potential often as low as 20 or 25 millivolts. When a cell becomes damaged or sick, the voltage of the membrane drops, causing an increased voltage in the interior of the cell. When the membrane voltage is low, the membrane channels can’t function properly, leading to a domino effect of disease-causing actions (or inactions).
Since cells are constantly checking in with their neighbors, healthy cells surrounding a sick cell can usually work overtime and help the sick cell recover. This adaptation and resiliency is something we expect of a healthy cell. But sometimes a cell is so sick or damaged that it cannot perform its regenerative functions and gets “stuck” in a state of being unwell.
Each person’s metabolic processes and adaptive mechanisms are governed by both internal and external pacers. Internal (endogenous) pacers are natural within the body and provide biochemical reactions that are in rhythm with each other. External (exogenous) pacers, like geomagnetic fields, solar flares, WiFi (and yes, PEMF therapy) affect the internal pacers. Normally, cells communicate via coherent signals that ensure accurate data transfer at a relatively low level of energy.
It’s imperative that these intra-cellular signals remain methodical and efficient so that organisms can maintain order and integrity, even though the intensity from the signals generated by the external environment is much higher than the internal biological control signals. The higher the intensity of the external pacers, the more the body must adjust in such a way as to influence the internal pacers without harm or disruption.
Another important characteristic of the inner pacers is synchronicity, which allows larger biological units (like organs) to organize the activity of their cells in a coordinated fashion – all for one and one for all.
At each and every stage in the life of an organism, sensitivity to the environment and coordination of responses are evident and necessary. All organisms have the ability to receive specific external and internal signals and respond to them in ways that enhance survival and longevity. Environmental signals that help balance internal pacers are vital to maintaining the rhythm of our metabolism. Positive outer environmental signals can include natural sounds like wind in the trees, bird songs, and ocean waves, as well as inaudible emanations of energy emitted by nature (like the planetary ionospheric Schuman resonance frequencies). A lack of these kinds of positive outer signals can cause serious pathological disorders by depleting the organism’s system-specific vital resources. Artificial signals produced by urbanization and civilization can reduce the intensity of beneficial, constructive external pacer signals available to an organism.
In order for an organism to adapt to the environment, there must be a process through which only some of the overwhelming amount of incoming signals from the environment can be ‘selected’. In bio-communication, signal filtering is achieved through biological windows. These windows are called the “Adey-windows”, as described by Dr. Ross Adey.
Dr. Adey researched and published on electromagnetic field interactions with biological systems, cell membrane organization and intercellular communication, organization of brain systems and cellular mechanisms, bioinstrumentation and bioengineering, computer applications in medical imaging, physiological data analysis and the modeling of brain mechanisms. He discovered that these ‘windows’ are discrete and definable, with exact limit values. Certain frequency ranges are typical to a given biochemical or physiologic system in a body.
Achieving consistent communication between cells is dependent on the cell membrane’s ability to detect and facilitate “handshakes” between it and fluctuating electromagnetic fields. This understanding comes through the activation of intracellular systems that enhance and use these specific signals. Only biological windows that are active at a given moment can be used in information transfer and encourage adaptive activities. Alteration of biological windows within a given system is called phase change, and also results in functional changes, adaptive or maladaptive.
If the natural selectivity system does not function optimally, it will have a negative effect on the information processed and, consequently, on the adaptability of the organism, or on a system within the organism. This can lead to a variety of functional disorders. In order to return the organism to a balanced state, correct biological information flow must be reestablished.
All cell injury progresses from a phase of reversible to irreversible. Cells with reversible injury are typically below our level of awareness, and these injuries are cumulative over time in hundreds of millions, of not billions, of cells across the body. For you to become aware of a hang nail on your pinky finger, for example, millions of cells would have to be sick or damaged. Every one of those millions of cells goes through the same process of cellular injury and communication breakdown. Aging, as another example, is not something we can be aware of day-to-day. Only once cellular injury happens and is irreversible in a larger collection of cells, do we see the results as a health issue such as pain, arthritis, infection, heart disease, dementia, etc.
Therefore the goal of PEMF therapies is to enhance natural cellular communication processes, and to improve the energy of the cells, moving them towards stability and enhancing cellular repair.
