Electric Fields Crucial to Healing

Researchers at the University of Aberdeen, using the eyes, “found that the body’s internal electric field plays a crucial role in the healing of damaged cells and tissue. Dr. Colin McCaig and his team studied the healing of damaged rat corneas.”

The team discovered that with the cells of a healthy cornea, the body pumps positively charged ions in and negatively charged ions are pushed out. In a damaged cornea, the body’s electrical field disappears. They also discovered that inducing an electric field speeded up healing.
