Healing is Voltage

The inimitable Dr. David Harshfield recently presented on "healing is voltage." Here is his amazing presentation:

As I continue to write a book titled, "Surviving Pandemics," I am trying to connect biology-based and energy-base medicine. For example, Dr. Jerry Tennant's book "Healing is Voltage" is over 500 pages long. Most of the book discusses human biological physiology - as your balanced physiology is critical to proper cellular voltage.

pH is a measure of the concentration of the hydrogen ion (H+) in a solution. The term pH means Potential Hydrogen and thus this pH number corresponds also to a voltage measurement. Where the full range of pH scale goes from a low acidic pH 0 = +400 mV to a high alkaline pH 14 = -400 mV level.

The optimum middle or the medium-neutral level of alkalinity and acidity, the normal pH balance, state is the pH 7 number. Human blood for instance caries pH 7.5 hence reading -28.57 mV's in the pH electric equivalence.

Human blood contains a buffer of carbonic acid (H2CO3) and bicarbonate anion (HCO3-) in order to maintain blood pH between 7.35 and 7.45, as a value higher than 7.8 or lower than 6.8 can lead to death. In this buffer, hydronium and bicarbonate anion are in equilibrium with carbonic acid.


Mineral balance plays a key role in pH control in your blood. Acidosis (too much acid) causes potassium to move from cells to extracellular fluid (plasma) in exchange for hydrogen ions, and alkalosis (too much alkalinity) causes the reverse movement of potassium and hydrogen ions.

Here is an advanced video on what is referred to as the sodium/potassium pump - that is all about establishing voltage. This ion pumping system was discovered in the 1950s and was subject of the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1997.

Here is a video that may be a bit more understandable. Don't worry about the details. I just want you to appreciate that your physiology (ATP in this case) supports your electricity. And it is the electricity that allows cells to communicate -


Here is a very rough draft from the book connecting energy to biology (physiology)

There is a great divide in medicine. Biological medicine is the mainstay of the Western world. Whereas energy medicine is more the purview of the East. However, as a Physical Chemist, it’s clear that these two concepts are really just yin and yang, alpha and omega, even the “0” and “1” or much more appropriately, “+” and “-“.

What is this + and – all about? Everything happening within you right now, involves the flow of energy – more appropriately, electrons. It is easily muddled by the complexity of our beings, but at its foundation is the flow of electrons. This is illuminated nicely in an article titled, “Meet the electric life forms that live on pure energy.”

“Unlike any other life on Earth, these extraordinary bacteria use energy in its purest form – they eat and breathe electrons – and they are everywhere.

“STICK an electrode in the ground, pump electrons down it, and they will come: living cells that eat electricity. We have known bacteria to survive on a variety of energy sources, but none as weird as this. Think of Frankenstein’s monster, brought to life by galvanic energy, except these “electric bacteria” are very real and are popping up all over the place.”

“Unlike any other living thing on Earth, electric bacteria use energy in its purest form – naked electricity in the shape of electrons harvested from rocks and metals. We already knew about two types, Shewanella and Geobacter. Now, biologists are showing that they can entice many more out of rocks and marine mud by tempting them with a bit of electrical juice. Experiments growing bacteria on battery electrodes demonstrate that these novel, mind-boggling forms of life are essentially eating and excreting electricity.

It's not just our bodies that are driven by the energy of electrons, it’s technology too. Current technology is all about 1s and 0s which is familiar terminology regarding computers. At the foundation of processors are semiconductors all driven by the famous P-N junction. Like our bodies, computers receive, manipulate, present, and store data by managing electrons.

Computer processors have switches which corresponds to numbers in binary: one and zero. Each one or zero state in a single switch is called a bit, which is the smallest piece of data a computer can store. The PN junction is one of the most important structures in today's electronics. The PN junction has the very useful property that electrons are only able to flow in one direction. As current consists of a flow of electrons, this means that current is allowed to flow only in one direction across the structure, but it is stopped from flowing in the other direction across the junction.

Imagine a block of an n-type semiconductor pressed up to a block of a p-type semiconductor. What happens when the two make contact? Each material is electrically neutral, but the holes in the p-type material provide additional electron states which draw electrons from the n-type material. And when electrons travel into the p-type material, they leave holes behind them in the n-type material. Thus, at the interface the p-type semiconductor gains a negative charge, and the n-type semiconductor gains a positive charge. Regardless, electrons flow.

The 1931 Nobel Prize winner, Otto Warburg was the first to explain oxidation in the living world. While at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute, he discovered that flavins and the nicotinamide were the active groups of the hydrogen-transferring enzymes. Hydrogen transfer - gain of electrons – (reduction). Hayaishi et. al. showed that iron-containing oxygenase enzymes (oxidation) activate the transfer of molecular oxygen in human physiology – loss of electrons - thus completing our understanding of the cycle of oxidations and reductions in the living world.

Oxidation and reduction, yin and yang, alpha and omega – transfer of electrons – it is what makes the physics and chemistry of biology happen. This is the universal bridge between biological medicine of the West and energy medicine of the East.
