The Body Matrix - Body's cells are electrically interconnected
The Body's Matrix
- The Body’s Cells are Interconnected
“The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its
parts are many, they form one body”.
I Cor. 12:12a
“Body Talk” (Intercellular Communication)
A multicellular organism requires coherent and
coordinated communication between its cells to be able to synchronize cellular
processes. In living organisms, information is
carried between cells via two systems:
Chemical Messenger System
Mainly Cells sending
hormones, neurotransmitters, hormonal growth stimulants / inhibitors, cytokines, immune
THE BLOODSTREAM - Chemicals dock at receptor sites on recipient cell
membranes that allow the cell to pick up distant chemical signals.
CHEMICAL SIGNALS - Eg. prostaglandins generated by immune cells, cytokines.
The NERVOUS SYSTEM
Neurons relay message from one neuron to the next
DC electric currents and
An interconnected network
of tissue “cables” -
located in the intravascular space (between the blood
vessels and the cell membranes) dispersed throughout the body.
Transmits messages via
very weak photonic electromagnetic fields
Therapies Can “Do the Talking”
Scientists now realize that cell membrane
receptors also function as antennae able to pick-up specific energy
Using the body’s electrical matrix, each and
every cell (and their components) are able to convey and receive
vibratory information to and from other cells. Energy therapies are
able to restore and reinforce this vibratory circuitry, which may be
impaired by physical and/or emotional trauma and causing the immune
system repair systems to falter.
The Body Contains an Interconnected Web (called a matrix) of
NUCLEAR matrix within an INTERCELLULAR matrix within an EXTRACELLULAR connective
tissue matrix –
almost all the body’s components are linked together:
The nuclear matrix
The NUCLEAR Matrix –
This is a network
of fibers in the nucleus, which link its genetic components to the nuclear
the intercellular matrix
The INTERCELLULAR Matrix
- The cytoskeleton is the
cell’s scaffold, acting to
organize and maintain the cell's shape and anchor organelles and enzymes in
place. The cell interior (the cytoplasm) is virtually filled with fibers, tubes
and filaments, collectively called the intercellular matrix.
3 types of struts:
largely composed of the protein tubulin, can become rigid to determine cell
shape; electrically energetic polarity serves to direct vesicles/motor proteins
using them as tracts; bidirectional intracellular highways.
Actin filaments -
7nm diam., composed of protein actin (as found
in muscle cells); ability to contract and relax allows cytoskeleton to change
shape; contains its own ATP making it independent of mitochondria;
Intermediate filaments -
10 nm diam.; form wavy bundles that traverse the cytoplasm, connecting
nucleus to and suspending it away from internal plasma membrane.
Epithelial cells contain intermediate
filaments made largely of keratin; fibroblast’s intermediate filaments are made
mostly of vimentin, muscle cell intermediate filaments mostly of desnin.
These continuous connections link the cell
membrane to the organelles - including
a connection through the nuclear membrane to the chromosomes.
The enzymes of the cell are attached to this cytoskeleton
The Extracellular Matrix
The EXTRACELLULAR Matrix
The ECM is a network of body tissue “cables” lying outside
the cells, which:
and attachment for cells inside organs
Provides a communication
pathway between all body cells -
and also links into
nearly every cell,
INTERCELLULAR Matrix and the
ECM connects to Intercellular Matrix via Protein Polymers
The EXTRACELLULAR Matrix (ECM)
The existence of extracellular communication network is only more recently
gaining recognition in Western medical understanding, some even referring to it
as an unrecognized organ
Information is carried
through the ECM by very weak electromagnetic fields via their frequency and
amplitude fluctuations -
The Chinese have known of this network for about 5,000 years, calling the energy
which travels along it our life-force or Chi (Qi). In 1994, this network (also
called a meridian system) was able to be mapped accurately using high-tech
instruments now available, capable of measuring minute amounts of electricity.
Where is the ECM? -
between the cell membranes and the nearby nutrient-carrying blood vessels,
the ECM is a network of connective
tissue, which provides strength, fills spaces between cells, binds cells and
tissues together and links almost every cell in the body.
ECM is plentiful in various connective tissues –
(tough/flexible), bone (hard/dense), cartilage (resilient), jelly in eye
The ECM consists mostly of:
Interweaving glycoproteins bound to water to form
a gel - Glycoproteins are complex chains of
sugar molecules joined to protein. E.g. Fibronectin,
Fibroblasts and fibrocytes -
the main cells that produce the proteins and ground substance of the ECM
in soft tissue.
(also called the “basement
A “Cross-shaped” cell ADHESION protein molecule that holds our body
anchors organs to itself –
sheets of protein that form the substrate of all internal organs. It has
4 arms in the shape of a cross - the three shorter arms are
particularly good at binding to other laminin molecules, which is
what enables it to form sheets. The long arm is capable of binding to
cells, which helps anchor the actual organs to the membrane.
He (Christ) is before all things and IN HIM ALL THINGS HOLD TOGETHER.”
Embedded in the glycoprotein gel are various
Collagen - has great
tensile strength, main component of fascia, cartilage, ligaments, tendons,
bones, teeth. Together with keratin, it is responsible for skin
strength/elasticity, reduces age-related wrinkles. Strengthens blood vessels,
preventing need for repairing plaque.
Elastin - tough
fibers provide structural support and tissue elasticity, which allows body
tissues to resume their original shape after stretching or contracting. Elastin
is abundant in arteries, especially aorta, lungs, elastic ligaments, skin,
bladder, and elastic cartilage.
binds ECM proteins to each other and to
integral membrane proteins (IMPs or integrins), which extend across the cell
membrane linking the Intercellular Matrix (the matrix inside the cell) with the
Hylauronic Acid - provides
lubrication of tissues.
The ECM acts as a molecular sieve between the
(smallest of the blood vessels) and
the cells – substances
are diffused between capillaries and
ECM. E.g. Oxygen is transferred from capillaries to ECM and carbon dioxide is
transferred from ECM to capillaries.
The ECM is a transit and storage area for
nutrients, water and waste
A transit area -
from the bloodstream into the cells,
released by the cells to the bloodstream and
for immune cells moving
out of the bloodstream. These immune cells are involved in inflammatory
reactions by secreting cytokines and digesting old worn out cells. They may also
facilitate healing by carrying and delivering components from other areas of the
body to the cell membrane. These migrating immune cells, as well as fixed cells
in the ECM, regulate cellular functions by secreting growth factors and cell
A storage reservoir - for water,
nutrients and toxins
A pH buffering system - where the proteins of the ECM buffer acids released by the cells.
Edema toxifies the ECM
healthy conditions -
most of the water in the ECM is bound as
a gel, creating a physical barrier that controls an evenly distributed fluid
flow from venule end of capillaries to cells.
When conditions create
edema in the ECM -
fluid flows more easily from leaky
capillaries, but these large flows of fluid are unevenly distributed, which
interferes with nutrient delivery, oxygen perfusion and waste disposal. In
edematous conditions the ECM becomes more hypoxic, more acidic and electrically
Bioflavonoids are some of
the most effective nutrients in reducing capillary leakage, which helps reduce
edema - improves the electrical conductivity of the ECM.
Cell Growth Control -
ECM is involved in regulating cell growth control.
Cellular components of the
ECM - are involved in the local production of growth factors,
growth inhibitors and cytokines - that affect the growth and metabolic activity
of tissue/organ cells.
Immune cells - such
as leukocytes, lymphocytes and macrophages that migrate into the ECM are
involved in initiating the removal of old and damaged cells and in stimulating
the growth of new cells.

The glycocalyx -
is composed of negatively charged sialic acid molecules that cap the tips
of glycoproteins and glycolipids that extend outward from the cell membrane like
The glycocalyx (sugar cell coat)
is produced by the cells of parenchymal organs and
secreted onto their cell surfaces
The ECM and the glycocalyx
work together to regulate information transfer to and from tissue/organ cells -
by both electrical field fluctuations leading to electroconformational
coupling and soluble signaling molecules.
