Definition of Bioelectricidad

Bioelectricidad can be defined as a branch of biology that studies the set of electrical phenomena that living beings experience . This bioelectric process is essential for the body to function.

The  electricity  is a representation of power, in which protons and electrons of matter interact either negatively or positively.

This is how in  bioelectricidad,  everything that surrounds the body is matter made of atoms. These have a center called the nucleus and within this nucleus there are particles with positive charges (protons) and others without charge (neutrons). 

In this way, the nucleus ends up being surrounded by negatively charged particles (electrons). 

How is Bioelectricidad produced?

This process happens constantly. Electricity is produced when the body’s cell starts the opening of the  “sodium-potassium gate” .

When the body needs to send a message from one point to another, sodium and potassium ions or atoms can move in and out of the cell.

As positively charged sodium ions enter the cell and negative potassium leaves the cell, a change is generated in the electrical charges of both substances.

This will cause an “electrical spark”, causing the next cell to repeat the same action and so on until a kind of electrical storm forms.

With the thoughts, emotions, feelings and actions; we activate and cause these electrical charges to occur, generating reactions in specific areas of our brain.  

Glands of Bioelectricidad

Much of the body’s functioning is due to bioelectricidad. This has glands capable of feeling the electrical phenomenon both inside and outside the body.

Among them, there is the  pineal gland , in charge of regulating the body’s circadian rhythms (sleep-wakefulness), which are constantly altered by electromagnetic fields, whether created by man or those that occur naturally.

 The second is the  pituitary gland , located at the base of the brain and considered the “master control gland” because it is responsible for the effective functioning of the nervous system and works by transmitting electrical pulses.
