“Life is the electronics of the internal water of humans”.

Louis-Claude Vincent



Louis-Claude Vincent (1906-1988) is a French civil engineer. He specialized in hydrology and public hygiene works (water supply and sewerage) from 1926.

He was a consulting engineer for 12 years in more than 400 municipalities in France. This presence in the field led him, with the help of certain colleagues, to study the effects of water quality on health. Their observations allowed them to establish that “Mortality due to serious illnesses is directly linked to the quality of the water delivered to the populations”.

In order to provide a scientific explanation for these findings, Louis-Claude Vincent begins research which will lead to a new science: Bio-electronics.


The Bioelectronics of Vincent (BEV) has been proven for more than 40 years and tested on more than 60,000 clinical cases. It shows that the liquids of the organisms (blood, saliva and urine), have electromagnetic characteristics specific for each human illness.

The method uses commonly measured parameters to characterize the living environment / bio field we want to study, comparing the results with standards of good health:

pH (potential hydrogen)

The pH value reflects the free acidity of an aqueous phase. The physical definition indicates that it is the concentration of H+ ions, also called protons.

From 0 to 7 the medium is rich in protons; it is said to be acidic (more and more acidic going towards 0).

From 7 to 14 the medium is depleted in protons; it is said to be alkaline or basic (increasingly alkaline going to 14).

rH2 (redox factor)

The value of rH2 measures the quantity of electrons available, likely to be exchanged in the aqueous phase.

As the classic oxidation-reduction potential E includes in its value the content of protons, it is essential to use the unit rH2 which is independent of it.

The calculation leads to the following relation:

rH2 (25°C) = 33.8 E(V) + 2 pH


– the potential E (expressed in volts) and the pH are measured using the conventional electrodes.

– the rH2 scale extends from 0 to 42, with indifference to 28.

From 0 to 28 the medium is rich in electrons; it is said to be reductive (or reduced). It is more and more rich going to 0.

From 28 to 42 the medium is depleted in electrons, more and more depleted going towards 42; it is said that it is oxidized (or oxidizing).

Ro (Resistivity)

The resistivity Ro is a parameter which is inversely proportional to the concentration of mineral salts dissolved in an aqueous phase. When Ro increases, the amount of minerals decreases, and vice versa.

It is expressed in Ohm.centimeters. It is often preferred the conductivity C whose variation is proportional to the concentration of electrolytes:

C (in micro Siemens per cm) = 1 000 000 / Ro (

The quantification of L.C. VINCENT

By copying the classic laws of electricity, L.C. VINCENT develops a calculation whose goal is to identify an energy specific to the vital liquids of the body. More information here.

The notion of field

The Bioelectronics of Vincent highlights four zones, characterized by their relative richness in protons and in electrons (figure above). It is remarkable that each of these zones is favorable only to a form of specific life: any micro-organism endowed with life develops only in an environment which is favorable to it.

• Zone 1 (acidic and antioxidant) is that of life and health, the area of vital forces, rich in protons and electrons. It contains green algae, and useful microbes.

• Zone 2 (acidic and oxidant) has many protons but few electrons. This is the field of fungi and mycoses.

• Zone 3 (alkaline and oxidizing) has few protons and few electrons. This is the field of viruses.

• Zone 4 (alkaline and antioxidant) contains few protons but many electrons. It is the field of brown algae and pathogenic microbes.


Waters can be classified according to the value of their parameters in BEV.

pH and rH2 determine a precise position on the bio-electronigram of Vincent.

We find perfect waters in Zone 1 (acidic and antioxidant).

A biocompatible water (4) should have the following characteristics:

• slightly acidic, i.e. a pH between 5.5 and 6.8.

• slightly reducing (antioxidant) or neutral, i.e. an rH2 between 25 and 28.

• slightly mineralized, i.e. a Ro>6000 Ohms (mineral rate between 10 and 50-120 mg/l)

Only a few natural spring waters meet these criteria and only reverse osmosis (by blocking the minerals) makes it possible to approach it from mains water.

Zone 1 is where we find thermal waters too, i.e. highly mineralized (Ro<400 Ohms).

There is no water corresponding to Zone 2 (acidic and oxidant).

In Zone 3, we found (mis)treated and chlorinated waters.

Zone 4 corresponds to stagnant and polluted water, as well as alkaline ionized water.

FH corresponds to the zone of Full Health according to the biological parameters (saliva, blood, urine). See previous picture.

Limits of the BEV

These basic physico-chemical parameters do not always capture the subtle energy of water obtained after dynamization, however this is immediately perceptible in the mouth and measured via biological tests. The energy theory is useful to avoid the worst and to broaden the perspectives but the best water is the one that is the most pleasant to drink… in practice!

  1. Thank you indeed Christophe, very interesting. Could be a very useful addition to the way we look at water. All the parameters involved are accepted broadly. Do you have experience using this method that you would be able to share?

  2. I find this of absolute intrigue.
    I refer to what is termed “Bio-Field” to what Louis-Claude called Bio-electronics. I ‘really’ don’t feel comfortable with all this “healing” terminology. It’s simply so falsifying.
    It appears to me, that we’re now moving into a timeline in-which we need to rephrase what Louis Called Bio-electrics and ‘others’ (lets say) regard as “healing” technology of some description (that IS what it IS), more correctly associated with a “Quantum” Field that we can also ‘sense’ ~ thus an Electro-Magnetic reality of some description, if not multiple descriptions, such that it behaves more akin to a “field” of entangled activity that not all biological reality is necessarily Consciously aware of. Therefore need a very realistic turn of phrase.
