There is one thing that all life needs and that thing is energy – or to be more specific – electrons.
In other words, all lifeforms are really just giant batteries. They get electrons from their environment which provide the energy for them to perform all the daily functions they need in order to survive.
Think about a plant. It is constantly plugged into the sun and sky via its canopy and into the ground via its roots. During the day plants get their electrons from the sun and they convert these into usable energy through photosynthesis, and at night they get their electrons from the natural electromagnetic energy that flows through the earth via their roots. They also get the minerals that are required for various functions via the roots in the ground.
Plants don’t need food because they are “plugged in” 100% of the time. Think of the plant growing precariously on the side of the cliff – it has all its needs met with little or no soil.
Humans (like all land animals) are mobile and therefore are not constantly plugged in to the sun and ground like a plant is.
But, like a plant our main source of electrons is actually the sun and the ground – when we are plugged in. We think the only place we can get energy from is from food, but have you ever wondered how our cavemen ancestors were able to eat less food than we do now? Or how some humans appear to be able to survive for very long periods without food? Or why we need to eat more during the winter?
Nature being very clever gave us a backup generator – and that backup system is food. But, the amount of energy we get from food actually has very little to do with its calories or macronutrients. Our new understanding is that the energy we get from food is actually related to how many electrons the food has and what type of electrons, and also the information that comes with the food and tells us how many electrons of what type the food contains.
Fats and proteins are electron-rich foods and the most electron rich food is seafood. The reason for this is that seafood exists in the water and water is the perfect conductor of energy (like your car battery). The electrons in seafood are abundant but low-powered.
Carbohydrates have less electrons, but with more power. This is because plants grow in the sun which has more powerful electrons than what can be obtained from the ground/water like fish contain.
(Processed foods – of any macronutrient – have much less electrons – every step of processing we add to food removes the electrons, and/or the information in the food that tells us what it contains. No wonder they make us so hungry!)
This raises a very important point. Different bodies are optimised for different types of electrons. Think about different types of plants’ sun tolerance levels. Some plants will shrivel and die if they get too much sun, some will shrivel and die if they have too much shade. Clearly whether a plant lives or dies is directly related to its evolved preference for electrons.
In the same way, different groups of humans have evolved to maximize energy production based on different food sources.
Eskimos have very little sun, so they eat a diet rich in lower-power electron-abundant seafood. Equatorial races have a lot of sun so they eat a diet rich in higher-power less-electron-containing plants.
This is why where you live should guide the types of foods that you eat. We are now eating food shipped all over the world, based on our personal preferences of the day – but we are not designed to eat all types of food. People from colder climates can have problems when they eat for example the high-powered electrons of a papaya, whereas in the warmer climate this is a perfect source of electrons.
And even more importantly the DNA that tells our body about the environment is passed down the maternal line, so you are designed to eat whatever you mother and grandmother ate. If your mother was from Asia but you are living in Sweden you can probably eat the Papaya fine with little consequence on your health and weight.
Our body has some pretty amazing systems for measuring electrons.
The hormone leptin has been given the official function of the “fat-store monitor” but what it is really doing is counting the number of electrons we get from our food and the ground, and the number of photons (light particles) that we get from the sun. It does this through elaborate sensory cells in the eyes, skin and gut – our windows with the outside world.
The problem we have at the moment is that our leptin has stopped working properly. Our current environment of poor food, toxins, stress, poor sleep and various other things has really messed with all of our hormones of which leptin is the master energy controller. And as a result our bodies have absolutely no clue anymore of how much energy we actually have and as a result it has no choice but to play it safe.
It’s like going for a long drive in a car where the fuel gauge is broken. You end up filling up in every town just to be sure. That’s the basis of the insatiable hunger and cravings most people experience.
So the problem we have with chronic disease and obesity is actually not too many calories. The real problem is we don’t have enough electrons, or a poor conduction of the electrons we have, or typically both!
How do we tell if we have an electron problem?
It’s pretty simple. The easy way is to look in the mirror. If you are too thin or too fat then you have an electron problem. If you have a chronic disease you have an electron problem. If you have low Vitamin D levels, poor bone or dental health you have an electron problem. If you suffer from infertility or hormonal issues you have an electron problem. If you experience stress or fatigue you have an electron problem.
Do you know anyone who doesn’t have an electron problem?
So firstly how do we increase our electrons?
- We need to get out in the sun as much as we can – especially in the morning. And without sunscreen and sunglasess which are both large contributors to inadequate sunlight. Did you know your risk of cancer is significantly reduced with regular sun exposure and a good tan? The more sun exposure you get, the less food you will need.
- We need to get grounded. “Grounding” is not “woowoo”, it is based in well-founded science. If plants cannot live without it, why do we think we can? Put your feet on the earth, take your shoes off or get some shoes that ground (http://www.barefoothealing.com.au/c/footwear/246). Better still ground your mattress (http://www.barefoothealing.com.au/c/sleep-systems/102). It is nighttime when there is no sun when we really need electrons from the earth. Walk on the beach to combine the sun and grounding – even better walk in the electron-rich water.
- Eat electron rich food. Eat whole, real foods that not only contain electrons but also come with the information about what it is and what type of electrons it contains. Ideally eat local food sources, and use your maternal heritage to further guide you.
Most of us are now sun-deprived so ideally we need to eat like an eskimo. (As an aside this is why high fat low carbs diet for many people – it’s not about the fat and protein but the electrons). Remember the less sun you are exposed to the more DHA you need (this is the main Omega-3 fatty acid in seafood). For your body to know what it is, this means eating whole fish, not fish oil. The best seafood sources of electrons are filter feeders like oysters, clams, mussels and prawns.
So now you have increased the electrons entering your body, you also want to increase the conductivity of those electrons throughout your body.
- Drink lots and lots of water. Just like a car battery needs water, water is how the electrons flow through us. The water needs to be high quality, purified water and ideally with no fluoride or chloride (see next point). Filter your drinking water or your whole house (vitality4life.com.au/aquasana/ or http://www.southerncrosspottery.com.au/fluoride-water-purifiers.html)
- Reduce fluoride, chlorine and bromide. Iodine is a vital part of the electron transport chain and these chemicals all displace iodide – in other words: limit tap water which contains fluoride or chlorine, steer clear of chlorinated swimming pools, don’t eat white flour and avoid flame retardants which both always contain bromide.
- Avoid unnatural electromagnetic (EMF) energy exposure. I cannot stress this enough. Unnatural EMF (from mobile phones, towers, radar, radio waves etc) displace electrons from the mitochondria (the power houses of the cells) so they simply can’t be used. I understand this is difficult – we are constantly surrounded by these technical gadgets now in our homes, schools and workplaces. Do your best to protect your house (especially bedrooms) – make sure Wifi modems are at the other side of the house, turn modems off at night, hardwire the internet in your house, limit use of mobile phones, don’t sleep under the meter box.
And this, I’m afraid, is why chasing Pokemons will reduce your electrons!
