Science Behind AmLife
1. Electric Potential (EP)
According to Dr Jerry Tennant in his book, 'Healing is Voltage', every cell in the body is designed to run at -20 to -25 millivolts (mV). To heal, we must make new cells. To make a new cell requires -50 mV. Chronic disease occurs when voltage drops below -20 mV and/or you cannot achieve -50 mV to make new cells. Thus, chronic disease is always defined by having low voltage. The following information is taken from here.
Importance of pH for Good Health
You will recall that I began my journey toward getting well by recognising that cells are designed to run between a pH of 7.35 and 7.45. I also began my journey with the idea that if I could figure out how to make one cell work, I could make them all work.
We doctors are trained to pay particular attention to things that are abnormally high. For example, we watch carefully for high blood sugar (diabetes), however, we rarely think about hypoglycemia unless a patient is dizzy or faint. We watch carefully for a high temperature including fever, but we are not trained that a low temperature indicated hypothyroidism. We watch carefully for high blood pressure and are insensitive to the fact that low blood pressure due to over-exuberant prescription of medications is causing our patients to be dizzy. We rarely look at pH levels or oxygen levels unless the patient is in intensive care.
I want to focus on the importance of pH. When I was trying to figure out how to get well, I couldn’t remember a lot about pH. I remembered that it was something about acid/base balance but I knew very little more than that. So I began to read about pH. What I discovered is that pH (shorthand for potential hydrogen) is really the measurement of voltage.
The following chart begins to help us understand the difference between electron donors and electron stealers as it relates to the human body.
Electron Stealer +
· Causes damage
· pH 0 - 6.9
· Free radical
· Positive pole
· Spins left
Electron Donor -
· Can do work
· pH 7.1 – 14
· Negative pole
· Spins right
Electron stealers cause damage, are a pH of 0 to 6.9, are acidic, are free radicals, are the positive pole, are destructive and at the atomic level spin left.
You will hear statements like "all disease occurs when you are acidic”. What this is really saying is that all disease occurs when your voltage is low or in an electron stealer state. The phrase “alkalize or die” means is that you must have electrons available to do work or your cells will die.
A free radical is a molecule that is missing electrons. It is like a mugger looking for someone’s purse to steal. When a free radical steals electrons from the cell, it damages the cell.
An antioxidant is a molecule capable of giving away electrons. Thus, when your mother says “eat your vegetables“ she is saying that the vegetables contain electrons that are good for you.
We maintain our health and heal primarily by making new cells. To make new cells requires a voltage of -50 mV.
Cell Voltage (mV)
· 7.88 Make new cells
· 7.61 Normal for kids
· 7.44 Normal for adults
· 7.26 Tired
· 7.18 Sick
· 7.0 Change polarity
· 6.48 Cancer occurs
Now let’s consider my thumb. My thumb is running at a voltage of -25 mV. It is pink, feels fine and works well. Now, I hit it with a hammer. The thumb turns red, swollen, is hot and has a pulsing pain. It has automatically gone to -50 mV. This is necessary to make new cells needed to replace the ones I damaged with a hammer. At -50 mV, blood vessels dilate and dump raw materials such as proteins, carbohydrates, fats vitamins, minerals, etc. into the neighbourhood. I need these raw materials to build new cells. I also need -50 mV to have the energy to turn these raw materials into new cells.
As soon as I finish making enough cells to replace those I damaged with the hammer, my thumb goes back to -25 mV. It is normal and I am happy.
Now, let’s assume that I ran out of voltage before I was able to make enough new cells to replace those that I injured with a hammer. My voltage dropped to -10 mV. Now, I am stuck in chronic disease. I cannot heal unless I can make new cells. I cannot make new cells unless I have -50 mV and all the raw materials I need to make new cells. In chronic disease, my thumb hurts all the time, it is white and doesn’t work very well.
Thus, we see that chronic disease is always defined as having low voltage. One cannot cure chronic disease without inserting enough electrons to achieve -50 mV. One must also have the raw materials necessary to make new cells and to eliminate the toxins or infections present that will damage the new cells. One can take all the medications you like and do as much surgery as you like, but you will not heal unless you have -50 mV, raw materials and lack of toxins.
Therefore, without the ability to achieve -50 mV and the necessary raw materials to make new cells, you cannot maintain your health and you suffer ageing and chronic disease. You are also unable to repair injuries that can also lead to chronic disease. You don’t need drugs to heal. You need to make new cells that work to heal. To make good cells you need voltage and a good diet. You also need to remove toxins from your body that damage cells and make you obese.
2. Cell Membrane Resting Potential
Next, we look at how cell membrane resting potential is maintained. A resting (non-signaling) neuron has a voltage across its membrane called the resting membrane potential, or simply the resting potential. The resting potential is determined by concentration gradients of ions across the membrane and by membrane permeability to each type of ion. In a resting neuron, there are concentration gradients across the membrane for sodium ions and potassium ions. Ions move down their gradients via channels, leading to a separation of charge that creates the resting potential. The membrane is much more permeable to potassium ions than to sodium ions, so the resting potential is close to the equilibrium potential of potassium ions (the potential that would be generated by potassium ions if it were the only ion in the system). +Read more
3. Far-Infrared (FIR)
This is one of our mattress' special and unique feature - the far-infrared or FIR for short. If you live in countries with four seasons, the usage of electric blankets may sound familiar to keep you warm in winter. You may think the heat that is emitted from our mattress is similar to the one from your electric blanket.
However, we beg to differ. Our premium 100% made in Japan mattress features FIR that is proven to raise the body's surface temperature. Heat for FIR helps increase circulation, which may benefit people who suffer from circulatory issues. FIR heat increases surface blood flow by promoting dilation of the blood vessels, without increasing blood pressure.
Human body heat is also a form of FIR heat. FIR rays radiate, reflect, refract and penetrate the body, which has many health benefits including, improving circulation, boosting immune functionality, improving asthma and allergies, detoxing and reducing joint stiffness.
Infrared rays can also help to release some toxins which can accumulate in the body by causing the blood and water molecules to vibrate against each other, separating the casing that traps the toxins, and widening the blood cells to increase circulation which carries the toxins away. This improved circulation will leave you feeling more energetic and generally healthier.

In conclusion, the electric potential theory, coupled with the cell membrane resting potential as well as the far infra red, that are currently featured on our electric potential thermotherapy mattress, prove that AmLife is not pseudo-science. The more you read the Science of AmLife, the more it makes sense altogether.
