Technology and scientific basis

The Principle of the Treatment

By generating in the water with the Linfanew system, an electromagnetic field through active plaques, the water decomposes and becomes charged of millions of negative ions. These active energy ions penetrate the human body through the sweat glands in the feet and these through the cell membrane, therefore remaining at the disposal of the body.

After a complex biochemical reaction of ions, the body releases energy, increasing the cell's drive and creating all types of enzymes. It improves the metabolic function of each organ in the body and stimulates the immune system.

In the treatment, the toxins and waste are like batteries; everything accumulated in the body will be quickly and safely released, allowing the human body to recover.

The Significance of Positive and Negative

With this type of hydrotherapy, the notion of positives and negatives refers to electrical phenomenon. When the direction of the current is changed towards the positive pole more negative ions are produced in the water. A positive polarity generates a flow of negative ions which produces an increase in both the acidic and alkaloid pH. When the direction of the current is changed towards the negative pole, it results in the production of positive ions in the water, reducing both the acidic and alkaloid pH in the water.

About 75% of individuals have an acidic pH when their blood is below 7.35. Exposure to a concentration of negative ions is very beneficial in this case. However, exposure to only positive or negative ions can cause great unbalances in the body, therefore a mix of both positive and negative ions are recommended, obviously depending on the body's pH. An effective pH test should be carried out through the use of test strips which indicate the percentage combination of the adequate positive and negative ions.

What does acidity and alkalinity mean?
These two terms refer to the way of organising the way elements react. The degree of acidity or alkalinity is measured using a scale called pH (potential Hydrogen) which goes from 0 (extremely acidy) to 14 (extremely alkaloid) with a neutral value in the centre (7). In short, acid values are between 0 and 7 and alkaline values are between 7 and 14. When the body is alkaloid it means that it is rich in oxygen whereas when it acidic it is poor in oxygen.
Alkalinity is the key to our health
The pH of a healthy body should be between 7.35 and 7.45. Readings below this figures indicate symptoms of illness. If the pH of the blood decreases to values under 6.8 it means that some of the cells in our bodies stop working, change structure, do not regenerate and die. When a person has a problem with their health it is very probable that their body is acidic. Medical research has demonstrated that the human body cannot cure or regenerate itself unless its pH level is slightly alkaline. For this reason it is not very likely that a treatment can be effective until the body's pH has reached a healthy alkaline value.
What happens if our pH is acidic?
Como con la mayoría de Like the majority of living organisms, the human body will not work properly without a correct pH balance. The blood must maintain a slight level of alkalinity. Medical studies have concluded that various types of illnesses have great difficulties in surviving and spreading in alkaline conditions; whereas in acidic conditions the illnesses worsen. An acidic pH reduces the body's capacity to absorb vitamins, minerals, food supplements and other nutrients. It reduces the production of cellular energy and inhibits the natural repair process of damaged cells. It reduces the body's ability to detoxify itself from heavy metals. It helps cells to reoccur and grow in the form of a tumour. It makes the body more prone to fatigue and illnesses. In order to obtain a healthy cellular metabolism, it is necessary that the blood, together with oxygen, has a constant flow of natural alkaline substances with the aim of neutralizing the acids.
What can cause acidic pH?
A diet rich in acids, a toxin overload, emotional stress or reactions in the immune system and / or any other process which lowers oxygen and other nutrients in the cells can all be reasons why the body is acidic. The body tries to compensate this and can run out of alkaline minerals. If there are not enough minerals to allow the body to compensate for this, acidity will increase dramatically in the body cells.
Evaluate your pH!
The pH test is only an indicator and it only reflects the state of the body at the time the test is carried out. The body is constantly regulating (or trying to regulate) the different levels of pH.

We must not immediately assume that a person is unhealthy if the result of the test shows them to have acidic pH. This may be quite simply a reflection of the last meal they ate. However, if after conducting regular tests on various days the result is still acidic, this probably means that the body is acidic. For the test to be more exact, it is better to use the second urination of the day, or carry out the test two hours after eating or drinking.

Linfanew is a therapy which helps to regulate pH. For that reason it is advisable to, during the treatment period, to constantly control the pH using the test strips. By doing this choosing the best therapy is made easier.
Scientific Investigations
Otto Heinrich Warburg (1883-1970), Physiology and Medicine Nobel Prize winner in 1931 for his thesis on the primary cause and the prevention of cancer. According to this scientist cancer is the result of an anti-physiologic food intake and lifestyle.

Why? Because anti-physiologic food intake (a diet based on the consumption of acidic and sedentary foods), creates an ACIDIC environment in our bodies. Acidity, removes oxygen from the cells.
Warburg stated: -"The lack of oxygen and acidosis are like the two sides to the same coin: when you have one, you have the other."- Acidic substances reject oxygen, whereas alkaline substances attract oxygen. In other words, an acidic environment is an environment without oxygen. He also stated that -"Depriving a cell of 35% of its oxygen in 48 hours can result in them becoming cancerous cells"-.

According to Warburg, all normal cells require oxygen but cancerous cells can live without it. It's a rule with no exceptions.
This scientist stated that cancerous tissues are acidic tissues, while healthy tissues are alkaline tissues. In his work The Metabolism of Tumours Warburg demonstrated that all forms of cancer are characterised by two basic conditions: acidosis and hypoxia (lack of oxygen). He also discovered that cancerous cells are anaerobic (they do not breathe) and cannot survive when in contact with high levels of oxygen.
However, whenever they are in an oxygen free environment they survive thanks to glucose. Therefore, cancer is nothing more than a defence mechanism that certain cells from the body have in order to continue living in an acidic and oxygen deficient environment.
The Importance of Salt
Salt is added to improve conductivity and to increase the concentration of ions in the water which help make the therapy more effective. It is also used to produce an anti-inflammatory effect which sterilizes the water. Sea water, named "the complete soup" by some doctors and scientists, has been used throughout history, not only as an alimentary complement (current present use in Europe) but also as a substitute to blood plasma.
The marine "dispensaries", places where they historically used sea water as a basic therapeutic and nutritional resource, worked successfully at the beginning of the last century in Europe in battle against malnutrition and typical early childhood and late childhood illnesses. Basic validated investigations gave place to the marine method. (University of La Laguna in the Canary Islands, National University of Bogotá, University of Patagonia, University of Barcelona). At present, more than 300 doctors are carrying out research projects on the benefits of sea water.
Information gathered from the research carried out by René Quinton on marine plasma (L’Eau de mer, milieu organique - Masson, 1904).
The discovery of the channels in cell membranes
The Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2003 was awarded to American scientists Peter Agre and Roderick MacKinnon for their decisive contribution to the study of the cell membrane channels.

Human beings are made up of 70% salt water. This discovery explains how the salts (ions) and water are transported in and out of the cells in the body. It has also given us a fundamental molecular understanding of how, for example, the kidneys regain the water from the primary urine and how the electric signals in our nervous system are generated and propagated. These discoveries have given us a fundamental molecular understanding. This has been highly important in helping us understand many illnesses, for example, those of the kidneys, heart, muscles and nervous system.

The fact that the cells of the body contain specific channels to transport water had been suspected in the middle of the nineteenth century. In 1988 Peter Agre managed to separate a membrane protein. However, it was not until a year after this separation that this was in fact the water channel he was in search of. This vital discovery opened the door to a number of physiological, genetic and biochemical studies on water channels in bacteria, plants and mammals. Nowadays, researchers can follow in detail a water molecule and its journey through the cell membrane and understand why, not just water, but other small molecules and ions can also pass through.

Another type of membrane channel is the topic of this year, the prize on ion channels. Roderick MacKinnon surprised the whole investigation community when in 1998 he discovered the spatial structure of potassium channel. Thanks to this contribution, now we can "see" ions flowing through the channels to be opened and closed by different cellular signals.

The ionic channels are important for, amongst other things, the functioning of the nervous and muscle systems. The action potential of the nerve cells is generated when an ionic channel on the surface of a nerve cell opens and gives out a chemical signal, sent from an adjacent nerve cell. Meaning that an electric impulse is propagated along the surface of the nerve cell through the opening and closing of the ionic channels in just a few milliseconds.

The prize from this year illustrates how contemporary biochemistry at atomic level can help us to understand the fundamental life processes.

Peter Agre, born in 1949 in Northfield, Minnesota, USA. He graduated in medicine from the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, USA. He is a Chemistry and Biology teacher and a lecturer on medicine in the same university where he studied.

Roderick MacKinnon, born in 1956, was brought up in Burlington, USA. He graduated from the Medical University in Tufts, Boston, USA. He is a Molecular Neurobiology and Biophysics lecturer at the Rockefeller University in New York, USA.

Discovery of the secret channels in the body.

How are the channels formed? Channels are formed in every cell and there are series of biochemical processes, extending to electronic ions which are the current biological phenomenon.

In the metabolic process, all organs generate biological electricity, like the electricity in the heart, the power of the brain and muscle force which all have different voltages. For example, the pressure in the heart: -90mV or in the brain -60mV. As the body is a conductor, the directional flow of the bio-electricity is compared to that of a river; a system which covers all the body.

There are 12 channels in the body which are linked to all parts of the body; the heart, the liver, the bones, the skin, etc. All the body is interconnected through these divergent channels. Therefore, the channel system is a circulatory system of energy, which is different to other systems. In reality, it is an electrical switch system.

The channel and symptoms of illnesses:
Illnesses occur when current bio-energy is unbalanced and the value of the relative resistance changes. The change in resistant values and the electrical potential influence cell activity, altering its metabolism.

Characteristics of the channels:
Each organ and cell has its own bioelectricity forming a magnetic field in the human body which is radiated constantly. It is a circular field of radiation around the body.

The channel tissue is very fragile. The channel of tissues is easily formed with those of adjacent tissues. At the same time, the normal channel tissue disappears and fades away with ease. The substance of the channel tissue structure is very basic and it is not easily distinguished from other tissues. Therefore, the proper channel use cannot rely on operation, the use of high voltage, a strong magnetic field nor isotopes, as this is too strong for the channel.
