Essential Fatty Acids Needed for Energy Production

 (2) EFAs in Energy Production

 

      EFAs are involved in Cellular Oxidation and Energy Production - increasing metabolism, energy levels and stamina, and speed muscle-fatigue recovery.

 

      Dr. Johanna Budwig  - one of Germany’s top biochemists, was the first to realize the significant role of natural, unaltered EFAs in creating energy at the cellular level. She focused on how undamaged EFAs contain electron clouds, which link man’s vital energy back to the sun and promote cellular energy production by attracting oxygen and increasing cellular oxidation in metabolism (the “burning” of food). After decades of painstaking research, she determined that, in contrast to healthy people, cancer patients always have low blood levels of hemoglobin, phospholipids, lipoproteins and EFAs.

 

 

Linseed Oil

 The ability of linseed oil (aka flax oil) to attract oxygen, causing it to harden in air, made this oil useful as a varnish before more modern offerings.

      How do EFAs affect cellular oxidation / energy production? fatty acids are fundamental to the make-up of our cell membranes. The polyunsaturated fatty acids (EFAs only obtained from food), contain electron “clouds” (called pi-electrons) at their closely-spaced double-carbon bonds. These chemically reactive electron “clouds“ attract oxygen to the membrane, thereby increasing oxidation and energy production in the cellular respiration cycle.

Random, uncontrolled oxidation in the body is prevented by the body’s antioxidant enzyme systems, and also by dietary anti-oxidants.

 

      Cellular energy production enzymes (oxidation enzymes involved in electron transport chain in cellular respiration) need EFAs - In a speech in 1959, Dr. Budwig said, referring to the essential oils,

 

"Without these fatty acids, the respiratory enzymes cannot function and the person suffocates, even when he is given oxygen-rich air.”

 

 

EFAs were the “missing piece“ in Cellular Respiration

In 1960, the renowned Dr. Linus Pauling described the function of the hydrogen bridge in cellular respiration, but was unable to identify the electron donor for its function. Dr. Budwig was the first to recognize that EFAs were the sought-after substance responsible for electron displacement,  and also recognized that not only protons, but also electrons flow over the hydrogen bridge.

 

      DHA is especially concentrated in membranes of the highly active brain/nerve cells, retina, inner ear, adrenal glands and sex glands -  With its 6 double-carbon bonds, DHA has 6 sites with electron “clouds“ that can attract oxygen to the membrane, thereby increasing oxidation and energy production in the cellular respiration cycle.

 

 

      LA helps in hemoglobin production to improve oxygen transport – Hemoglobin (Hgb) is the iron-containing, oxygen-transport metallo-protein in red blood cells;

 

      Restoring cellular respiration could possibly reverse the cancer cell back to normal - Cancer cells are in "survival mode“, to create at least a small amount of energy using fermentation, a process which does not use oxygen. Dr. Budwig reversed cancer in even end-stage patients using flaxseed oil and cottage cheese (which makes fats more soluble).

 

 

 

“ Here Comes the Sun !“ - EFAs Absorb Sunlight

 

    “ ¶ And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.”      

Genesis 1:3

God designed man to be “in tune” with the rest of His creation

 

      Resonance Law - Physicist, Niels Bohr, determined the basic physical law, that matter can not change its condition without either ABSORPTION or RADIATION of electromagnetic waves of a frequency corresponding to its own radiation frequency.

 

The food we eat should contain electrons, with a vibrating frequency which attracts the electro-magnetic waves of sunbeams. An undamaged, highly unsaturated, fatty acid source, such as in ground flax seed, cold-pressed flax seed oil or spirulina, contain many electrons which originated from the sun, in an unaltered form. These sun-source electrons are incorporated into cell membranes in fatty acids, where they have a natural resonance with the sun’s energy (think of an antenna “tuned into” the sun). These electrons not only act as receivers, but also as amplifiers, transmitters and storage for the sun’s photon energy,  governing many of the body’s vital functions.

 

Sunlight absorption increases the ability of EFA electrons

 to react with oxygen about 1000-fold!

 

      Sunbathing thus enables EFAs in cell membranes to resonate with and harness the sun’s energy

 

-       Note on Skin cancer - Sufficient undamaged, polyunsaturated essential fats (EFAs) in the diet beneficially absorb the suns energy, consequently using up its burning /skin-damaging power.

 

 

      Fatty Acids Combine with Sulfur-based Protein - Dr. Budwig stressed that fatty acids become water-soluble, free-flowing and more easily absorbed, when combined with sulfurated amino acids: methionine, cystine or cysteine * (best sources in U.S. are cottage cheese and yogurt). The double bond sites of EFAs readily incorporate this protein to become lipoprotein. * By bypassing the need for the liver (often impaired or diseased in ill health) to breakdown the unsaturated fat, water-soluble fatty acids are thus available for the body’s immediate use.

 

      Dr. Budwig reported a very effective therapy for many serious ailments (including cancer) - by using a blended combination of electron-rich, fresh flax seed oil and low-fat cottage cheese as part of a prescribed diet.        

                        

  The BUDWIG PROTOCOL

 

*  Methionine, cystine, and cysteine and their derivatives owe their designation of “sulphurated amino acids” to the fact that they contain sulfur in addition to carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen and oxygen.

 

* EFAs are weakly basic and form weak, oscillating hydrogen bonds with weak acid groups such as sulfhydryl groups in proteins. The system of unsaturated fats in association with protein is in fact a dipolar system in its nature, where a continual exchange or movement of electrons is able to take place.
