What does your body run on?
The ‘R’ in InFIRE = Revitalize Your Body
Did you know that your amazing bio-chemical-body runs on electric current?
Have you ever heard of the term electrolyte balance? Take a careful look at the word ‘electrolyte’? What does this term suggest? Simply stated it’s a reference to the electrical current or electrical charge that results from the salts found in the food itself. Salts are chemical compounds made up of atoms that carry electrical charges. Dissolved in water, the components in a salt exist as ions. Collectively, these ions are called electrolytes. Your body uses two main kinds, namely positively charged electrons and negatively charged electrons – and both types of particles readily dissolve in water.
The main positively charged electrolytes in the body are sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium, while negatively charged electrolytes include chloride, phosphates, and bicarbonate.
In order to maintain the right electrolyte balance your body is constantly transferring these mineral salts within the cells and between the cells to ensure homeostasis and health.
When you eat fresh living foods, you are giving your body the perfect combination of intact salts in the correct quantities to ensure it’s ongoing electrolyte balance. How come? Because every living food has it’s own perfect balance of these salts or ions to provide your body with the electrical current it needs to function optimally. So that is why I refer to living foods as high voltage foods. Living foods are the only foods with the capacity to transport energy to your cells in the right balance and the most optimal way .
I like to think of us humans as electro-magnetic-bio-chemical-processing energy beings. The healthier you are, the higher your internal voltage, the more ill you are the lower the voltage. Think about it. When you feel ill, what happens to your energy levels? Perhaps there is something to food as energy after all!
