The phospholipids that make up our cells and mitochondria and all of our metabolic active organelles inside the cells are wondrous molecules. One end loves water and the other end where the fatty acid tails are love other fats or lipids. They form double membranes or micelles or liposomes by themselves. Head and tail are connected via a phosphorus atom and a glycerol shoulder.
Now to the Fatty Acids and lipids
About one third of the lipids in membrane are saturated, strong and straight. One third is from the unsaturated and essential fatty acid family, this makes the membranes flexible. One third is cholesterol which contributes to the stability of the membrane. The cholesterol is interposed between the phospholipids.
Our body is movement right down to the cells
The phospholipids in our cell membranes can move in all dimensions: they rotate, they move lateraly and they can flip from inside out. The molecular movement of the fatty acid tails with the double bonds (unsaturation) add to the multitude of frequencies emitted. With the Vitalfield diagnostic and therapy we address these phenomena.
Fatty acid tail 101
Each phospholipid carries two fatty acid tails, one saturated fatty acid– yes, they are needed and good these saturated fatty acids: palmitic and stearic acid. Our body can make these but we also can eat them from best quality sources.
The other fatty acid is an unsaturated fatty acid which means there are double bonds which make the tails crooked and moving at very high frequencies at every double bond.
The simplest is oleic acid which is in olive and almond oil; this monounsaturated fatty acid our body can make in a healthy situation.
Then it gets tricky: these marvelous essential fatty acids, EFA, that we need to thrive and survive.
We need to eat these regularly to support healthy membranes, strong mitochondrial function and energy production and for the formation of prostaglandins for without them no life can exist.
Pphospholipids can be used therapeutically orally and as drip intravenously. They help to repair damaged tissues, organs and cells. They brush out toxins from inside the cells and from the DNA. The art is to know which to use and how to apply.
Next time more about the fatty acids, especially the Essential Fatty Acids.
