Biophotons, or ultra-weak photon emissions of biological systems, are electromagnetic waves in the optical range of the spectrum – in other words: light. Living cells are constantly absorbing and emitting light in the form of photons that cannot be seen by the naked eye, but can be measured by special equipment developed by German researchers.
According to Professor Fritz-Albert Popp, the leading researcher of biophotons for the last 35 years, light is constantly being absorbed and emitted by DNA molecules within each cell's nucleus. This light facilitates cellular communication throughout the organism. They create a dynamic, coherent web of electromagnetic frequencies that are responsible for chemical reactions within the cells, and help with overall regulation of the biological system.
Each living cell emits and absorbs upwards of 100,000 photons per second. Healthy cells are known to emit coherent light that is more focused, as with laser light, while less healthy cells emit incoherent, more chaotic forms of light. If the light is incoherent it lacks the ability to carry large bundles of information because it has been corrupted. This faulty information causes disordered cell activity, which in turn causes illness and disharmony on many levels (learn more).
“We are still on the threshold of fully understanding the complex relationship between light and life, but we can now say emphatically, that the function of our entire metabolism is dependent on light.”
