Water, Cells, and Life: Dr. Gerald Pollack (Full Transcript)

We’ve demonstrated that this is actually the case. You can see here, you flip the switch and you get the light.

So just as water behaves as a light-driven battery, cells actually operate much the same way also as a light-driven battery, something you perhaps never thought of. But think about the cell and what’s inside.

So inside the cell, you’ve got large macro molecules, mostly proteins, and these proteins have hydrophilic surfaces, and of course, there’s water, lots of water inside the cell. And so what happens is that there are exclusion zones, you have EZ water, which has negative charge. And the positive charges would be lying beyond those negative charges.

So, the reality is the cell is really crowded, with proteins mostly, and this negative EZ practically fills the cell. And what happens is that the positive charges are pushed out, and the cell is negative.

But, negative charges near each other, they repel; they want to get away from one another. And that tendency to repel constitutes potential energy. And this potential energy is basically released in the form of protein folding – that is, the proteins ordinarily occupy one configuration, but they fold – they start this way and they fold into another configuration.

So for example, if this were a muscle cell, the proteins would be in one configuration, and they move to another configuration, and that’s what is responsible for your muscle cells contracting, and it allows you to jump.

So, the way it works, it looks like this: on the left side, here is a typical protein in its extended form, and it’s got EZ water around it. And what happens is the EZ water melts into ordinary water and the protein is able to fold.

But of course, it’s got to go back to the original position, and what happens is it does as EZ water builds around it. So this is the normal function of a typical protein.

And on the right side, imagine what happens with no EZ. You see, with no EZ, it doesn’t have the potential to get back to its original configuration, and so it’s not working.

So your muscle, or whatever cell, is not working properly if it doesn’t have EZ water. Of course, if you have some EZ water, then it functions, but not quite as well as if you have a full complement of EZ water. You have potential energy from the EZ, which drives the work of the cell.

Light, as I said, is responsible for building the EZ, and building negative charge, and that’s what gives the cell its energy. And then the energy is consumed as these proteins do the work of the cell, your work, and fold if you just connect the dots between the two.

So light is actually driving the work of your cells, or light is actually driving your function. Well, also inside the cell are structures called mitochondria, and they’re known as the energy factory of the cell, central for energy production.

How might that work in terms of the framework of what I’ve been presenting? Well, look at those membranes inside the cell.

Those membranes are hydrophilic surfaces. And, as I mentioned, next to hydrophilic surfaces, EZs build. So this is a perfect configuration for building EZs and negative charge, and contributing that to the rest of the cell for energy.

So, where do we get our energy?

Well, we get it from food, and obviously, we can get quite a lot of energy under certain circumstances. But we also get it from light, and the light is absorbed by the water, and that light absorption builds EZ and creates energy.

Should this matter to you? Well, yeah, I think so. Light matters for function, and therefore, for health; and water matters for function, and therefore, for health. Because they all build EZs, and the EZs are needed for proper function.

So, for your health, what builds EZ water in your cells? Well, there are a few things we can think about.

First of all, drinking water. Well, water is the raw material for building EZ water, and so, obviously, you need to be hydrated in order to function properly.

Green juicing – the juice is the inside of the cells of the plant. So you’re basically extracting EZ water from the plant cells and putting it into your cells.

Good strategy, and that’s why many integrative medical health professionals suggest that green juicing is the single easiest and best way to maintain your health, because of EZ, I believe.

There are some substances that are known through the millenia to be good for health, and these are just a couple of examples: turmeric, coconut water – we’ve studied a half dozen of these experimentally in the laboratory, and we found that putting a certain amount in the water, in the amount that corresponds to the amount that might be in your body, builds EZ.

It’s not published yet, but we’re onto it.

Sunshine – you go out in the sun, you feel good, you feel healthy, good to be alive. Well, light that you receive builds EZ. And the sauna is perhaps even more effective because the heat means that it’s generating infrared light, and infrared light is what builds EZ powerfully and effectively, and that’s why you feel good after you come out of the sauna.

And finally, grounding, sometimes called “earthing,” connecting yourself to the ground. Well, you can do this by taking off your shoes and walking on the beach. And you feel good.
