Tuberculosis (TB) Infection Today?

In our modern daily life, air pollution has become so serious that the negative ions normally found in air are being depleted rapidly. When we are exposed to environments too rich in positive ions for extended periods of time many people experience headaches, insomnia, neurasthenia, hypersensitivity, fatigue, respiratory diseases and a host of other symptoms. Degenerative diseases start at the cellular level and develop over a long period of time. Preventing or slowing down this degeneration is imperative. Good health is as much about what you put onto your body as much as it is what you put into your body.

  • What are ions? Positive ions? Negative ions?

    Charged particles are called ions. If the particle carries more electrons (-) than protons (+), it is called Anions or negative ions. If the particle carries less electrons than protons, it is called Cation or positive ions. Here are some examples of ions:

    Formation of Ions










    Ionic and Covalent Bonding

    We live in a world full of atoms and ions. Our body constantly interacts with particles in our surroundings through our mouth, nose, and skin which is the largest organ. For thousands of years it has been known that living near waterfalls and mountains are best because we breath easier and are happier. But why? Dr. Svante August Arrhenius discovered that negative ions are in abundance near waterfalls and forests. The discovery led to his origination of the theory of electrolytic dissociation, or "ionization.". At the turn of 20th century, Nobel Prize Winner in Physics, Dr. Phillip Eduard Anton Lennard, confirmed that negative ions are in very high density  in the basin of waterfalls where we feel especially refreshed and re-energized.

    View how our body absorb ions.

There is an optimal cross membrane potential for every kind of cell.  When the cross membrane potential of a cell is closer to its optimal value the cell is more vital and functions more efficiently at absorbing nutrients and removing wastes from the inside of the cell.

Human red blood cells carry a negative charge. Negative particles repel each other. Red blood cells with optimal negative cross membrane potential ensure the optimal function of red blood cells for our health. However, if a positive ion rich environment is present, a red blood cell will combine with positive ions and its cross membrane potential will be lowered. This causes lower cellular vitality. As a result, blood fibrins form in our blood vessels which leads to premature aging, even death of cells (nerve cells, skin cells, red cells, etc.) As the body's metabolism slows down, dead cells accumulate and waste builds up and form plaques on the walls of the veins and the arteries. As the plaques harden and increase in size sometimes even move around in the blood circulation, they can lead to heart attacks, strokes and in extreme cases, death.


The build-up of waste and toxins inside a cell can become cancerous.

  • How can high density negative ions help cellular function?

There are 4 major benefits of high density negative ions:

  1. Improve/cleanse red blood cells.
  2. Improve cellular functions.
  3. Improve immunity.
  4. Improve/Balance autonomic nerve system.
  • How do negative ions cleanse red blood cells?

The blood cells in our body are 99% red blood cells. The quality of red blood cells and circulation is essential to one's health. We were born with beautiful red blood cells and white cells to carry nutrients to cells all over our body. Due to aging or premature aging, blood fibrin/clots formulate gradually as a result of lifestyle choices and environment impacts.

If the cell is supplied by a healthy level of negative ions, transmembrane potential will be improved. This phenomena was demonstrated by the following experiment conducted by a research group in Italy in the 19th century:

Metal tongs prodded the leg of a frog repeatedly. At first, the frog's leg jerked repeatedly. The reaction gradually decreased until eventually the frog was too tired to react, or move. When negative ion air was introduced to the frog's environment the leg began to react.

As the vitality of red blood cells are improved, wastes and toxins are gradually removed from our body by our organs, including the skin, our largest organ. As a result of a consistent improvement of our surroundings, blood fibrin will gradually disappear and the quality of blood improved.

Summary of Ion Effects on Our Health

Acidic   Blood  Weak Alkaline
Constricted   Blood Vessels  Expanded
Work harder   Heart  Work Efficiently
High or Low   Blood Pressure  Normal
Difficult   Respiratory System  Smooth
Weak   Bones  Healthy
Fatigued   Vitality  Vigorous
  • What locations are high in negative ions?

With the deterioration of our natural environment, we often have to travel far to destinations where the air is fresh. In general our mind and body agree with the following table:

Negative Ions

  • How are ions measured? What unit is used?                                            

    Ions are measured by counts per cubic centimeter. Most ion measuring apparatuses measure in 1000 times counts per cubic centimeters. (Please refer to the manual for your specific machine.) Typically, if you read a number -19.20, the actual density is     -19.20 x 1000 = -19,200. The density is -19,200/cubic centimeter in negative ions.

  • What are the signs your blood chemistry is becoming balanced?

At first, you may think you are getting worse. This is called Herzeimer’s effect, which was first defined by German Doctor Herzeimer about 60 years ago. It is also called Healing Crisis or Die Off Effect. While in the process of healing, symptoms may get worse. In the case of cardiovascular diseases, as the red blood cells start to be more vital and function better,  wastes from inside the cells may temporarily accumulate in the blood stream. In the case of bacteria infection, dead bacteria emit toxins and toxins accumulate in the blood stream. Since skin is the largest organ in our body, toxins and waste leave our body through our skin in the form of perspiration in addition to other ways. So it is very important to drink about 3000 cc of quality water daily.

  • What are the signs of improvements? 

The signs of improvements (also known as Herzeimer Effects) vary depending on each individual and the percentage of coordination used. Typically, the following table summarizes most of the signs of improvements:

Running stomach
Gas release.
Breathing faster
The numbness gets worse.
Dry and thirsty
More itches.
Excessive discharge.
Feel hot / dry
Soreness gets worse.
Shiver in cold.
Frequent urine
Rash and swelling skin.
Perspire more.
Increased heart beat.
More mucus.
Complete bowl movement.
The pain gets worse.
  • How much healthy fabrics should I use to get the maximum benefits?

Every moment your body is not exposed to negative ions you set up an environment ripe for positive ions to form and reek havoc. The skin, being the largest organ, permeates ions at different rate than different parts of body. In general, our skin absorbs 85% of ions. Conversely, we breathe 15% of ions. The key to maximum benefit is close and consistent contact to the skin. Use healthy fabrics blankets and sheets at night and wear healthy fabrics clothing as much as possible during the day.


 It is never too early or too late to wear and sleep in healthy fabrics.
