Negative Ion /Anion/Negatively charged particle:
An anion or negative ion is an atom or molecule that, having one or more excess electrons, carries a negative electrical charge. Microscopic in nature, these fine electrically charged particles energize and soothe us while the positive ions stress and exhaust us. Negative ions are suspended in the air and enter our bodies mainly through the lungs, but also through the skin through reflex zones or acupuncture points. These beneficial particles, carriers of free electrons, act as antioxidants and nourish the fundamental bioelectrical patterns of the entire organism while supporting its cellular and metabolic vitality.
Metabolism is the set of chemical reactions that take place within a living being. They allow it to stay alive, reproduce, develop, and respond to the stimuli of its environment. Some of these biological mechanisms take place outside of cells, but most occur within them. In other words, it is a set of complex and incessant processes of transformation of matter and energy generally taking place in the heart of the cells themselves.
Free radicals/Oxidative stress:
In biology, free radicals are molecules that are unstable and unbalanced by the loss of an electron. They are aggressive invaders, capable of peroxidizing the unsaturated lipids that make up the cells’ membrane structures, which can cause their premature death. The replacement of dead cells by apoptosis forces the organism to activate its stem cells, which increases the risk of cancerization and contributes to accelerating the aging of the organism. Oxidative stress becomes a pathological condition when the protection system is overwhelmed by free radicals. The latter then seeks to restore its balance and neutrality by extracting an electron from another molecule which will, in turn, be electrically altered. A single free radical can destroy an enzyme, a protein, or a DNA base up to an entire cell, causing a devastating chain reaction.
Hydrogen potential (PH) is a measure of the chemical activity of hydrogen ions (H+) used to measure the acidity or alkalinity of a water-based solution. Thus, in an aqueous medium at 25°C, a solution with a PH = 7 is said to be neutral, a solution with a PH below 7 is said to be acidic, and a solution with a PH above 7 is said to be basic or alkaline. The body’s normal PH should be between 7.0 and 7.5 for its systems to function properly. Nowadays, an acidic PH is frequently observed in the body.
Toxic acidosis /Systemic acidity acid-base disorder:
Lymphatic system/Interstitial fluid:
A passage of plasma and white blood cells occurs at the capillary level, which forms the interstitial liquid, also called lymphatic. The cells bathe there directly, drawing nutrients from it and rejecting their waste products before returning to the blood through the lymphatic vessels. Lymph plays a key role in the immune system, thanks to the many lymph nodes that retain and eliminate pathogens. Unlike the blood network, the lymphatic system does not have a single organ acting as a pump like the heart. Its circulation results from the combination of bodily movements and deep breaths moving the central diaphragm. Indeed, if physical activity intensifies, the lymph will circulate 10 to 30 times faster in the body, which is very beneficial for general health. In addition, the lymphatic system drains excess fluid from the tissues, participates in detoxifying the body, contributes to the circulation of nutrients, and allows the circulation of white blood cells in the process of activating a specific immune response.
This term defines the process by which an organism flushes out or inactivates harmful toxic substances. At the physiological level, it is simply the act of removing by filtration or deactivating by chemical reaction the toxins contained in the body. In naturopathy, the different evacuation routes of the body, such as the skin, the kidneys, the lungs, the intestines, or the vagina in women are called emunctories. These are the pathways the body uses to eliminate excess toxins. Not to be confused with detoxification which is related to addiction to sugar, alcohol, tobacco, gambling, drugs, etc.
A parasite is generally a small organism living inside or on the surface of a larger host organism at its expense, but often without killing it; like human beings towards the planet. A parasite is pathogenic or harmful if it is capable of causing disease, overall imbalance, or death of the host organism. Some parasites are beneficial by cooperating with the organism they invade, which establishes an exchange of good services, as with probiotics.
