The Human Body’s Electrical Circuitry System
Looking at cellular biology, scientific research has revealed that the human body has a connective circuitry system that enables the body to communicate and function on all levels. However the full complexity of the circuitry system is still only partially understood. Some of the fundamental discoveries that help us to understand the body’s electrical circuitry are demonstrated through the works of Albert Szent-Gyorgyi, James Oschman and Robert O Becker.
The heart is the electrical powerhouse of the human body. Each heartbeat begins with a pulse of electricity through the heart muscle. This electricity arises because a large number of charged particles (ions of sodium, potassium, chloride, calcium and magnesium) flow across the muscle membranes to excite contraction. These ionic currents also spread into surrounding tissue. (J Oschman, Energy Medicine)
These charged ions are found throughout the body creating a whole circuitry system that joins to form an energy continua, along which energy, namely excited electrons, may travel a certain distance. (Albert Szent-Gyorgyi, Nobel Prize winner).
Robert Becker’s research into cellular regeneration using electrodes has made an important discovery in that the human body has a quickly reversing AC electrical field that is produced by the back-and-forth alternating current in the nerves and muscles.
Additionally the body has a DC electrical field from the direct current that travels along the perineural systems – the nerve sheath cells. This DC current forms a closed loop electrical circuit – like in the wiring of your house. (Robert O Becker, Body Electric, Nominee for Nobel Prize).
For any visitor or patient of an Accident and Emergency department they will be aware that doctors are able to measure the hearts and brains electricity with the use of an EEG or ECG machine. If you haven’t then there is another more daunting experience and that is of an electric shock from a live current or a milder static shock.
