Water, the source of life

Water, the source of life

Water sustains all forms of life, including human life. Water is one of the most mysterious substances on this planet. Scientists are still discovering amazing facts about water. More than 70% of our body weight is water. That translates into about 10 gallons of water for a 120lb. person. You are a bundle of water wrapped in skin and walking around. Understanding water and drinking the right kind of water will give us health and longevity. Properties of Water Water is a strong solvent: therefore, it carries many invisible ingredients, such as minerals, oxygen, nutrients, waste products, and pollutants. Inside the human body, blood (which is 90% water) circulates throughout the body distributing nutrients and oxygen, and collecting waste and carbon dioxides. Every substance deep inside the body was brought there by the blood and can be brought out by the blood. Unlike any other substance, water is lighter in its solid state in its liquid state. That why ice floats in water. Otherwise, lakes and ponds would freeze from bottom up in the winter time, killing all living things in them. Water not only sustains life but also protects life. Structure of Water We all know that a water molecule is H20. That means each molecule contains two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. These two hydrogen atoms are not attached to the oxygen atom in 180 deg. angle but a 104.5 deg. angle in liquid state and a 109.5 deg. angle in ice, making ice a more open structure than liquid water and giving it a lower density. These angles create electric polarization effects on water molecules. The side with hydrogen is more positive than the side with oxygen. For this reason, water molecules are not disjointed, but instead they form structures that change from hexagonal to pentagonal and back, contantly, in a very short of time (10¯¹¹ second) in a cooperative manner. WATER IS ALIVE! Yes, Water is alive without any living organism in it. The percentage of hexagonally structured water molecules varies as a function of temperature. In pure water, there are 3 to 4% of hexagonally structured water molecules at 10°C (50°F) and the rest is pentagonal in structure. There are 10% at 0°C (32°F), and virtually 100% at -40°C (??), we all know that a snow flake is hexagonal. The technology of the NMR (Nuclear Magnetic Resonator) is enabling scientist to see the...

Treatment of Escherichia coli (O157:H7) inoculated alfalfa seeds and sprouts with electrolyzed oxidizing water

Treatment of Escherichia coli (O157:H7) inoculated alfalfa seeds and sprouts with electrolyzed oxidizing water

International Journal Food Microbiology 2003 Sep 15;86(3):231-7. Department of Agricultural and Biological Engineering, Pennsylvania State University , University Park , PA 16802 , USA . Electrolyzed oxidizing water is a relatively new concept that has been utilized in agriculture, livestock management, medical sterilization, and food sanitation. Electrolyzed oxidizing (EO) water generated by passing sodium chloride solution through an EO water generator was used to treat alfalfa seeds and sprouts inoculated with a five-strain cocktail of nalidixic acid resistant Escherichia coli O157:H7. EO water had a pH of 2.6, an oxidation-reduction potential of 1150 mV and about 50 ppm free chlorine. The percentage reduction in bacterial load was determined for reaction times of 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, and 64 min. Mechanical agitation was done while treating the seeds at different time intervals to increase the effectiveness of the treatment. Since E. coli O157:H7 was released due to soaking during treatment, the initial counts on seeds and sprouts were determined by soaking the contaminated seeds/sprouts in 0.1% peptone water for a period equivalent to treatment time. The samples were then pummeled in 0.1% peptone water and spread plated on tryptic soy agar with 5 microg/ml of nalidixic acid (TSAN). Results showed that there were reductions between 38.2% and 97.1% (0.22-1.56 log(10) CFU/g) in the bacterial load of treated seeds. The reductions for sprouts were between 91.1% and 99.8% (1.05-2.72 log(10) CFU/g). An increase in treatment time increased the percentage reduction of E. coli O157:H7. However, germination of the treated seeds reduced from 92% to 49% as amperage to make EO water and soaking time increased. EO water did not cause any visible damage to the sprouts.

Molecular structure

Molecular structure

The last of the three main changes that occur to water during ionization is in molecular structure. This refers to the way the molecules are organized. The molecular structure has a powerful effect on water s ability to hydrate your cells and to carry energy throughout your body. Water is what chemists call a polar molecule. It has a positively-charged side and a negatively-charged side because of the way the electrons are arranged around each atom. This means that when water is placed in an electric field, the molecules must organize themselves in a very specific manner to stay balanced within the electric field. Water molecules assume a crystal-like, hexagonal geometry that can literally change the properties of the water.11 Although the organization (structure) of the molecules begins to dissipate when the water is removed from the electric field, a certain amount of structure lingers. Crystalline structure enhances the water s ability to hydrate cells, to transport nutrients, to remove waste, to support metabolic processes and to improve cellular communication. In 1986, a new theory referred to as the molecular water environment theory was proposed at a symposium on cancer. The theory stated that replenishing the crystalline (hexagonally structured) water in the human body could increase vitality, slow the aging process, and prevent disease. The theory was based on research that revealed the following: 1. a greater degree of structure in the water of an infant s body than in the water of an adult s body 2. a greater degree of structure in the water surrounding healthy DNA than cancerous DNA 3. a greater degree of structure in the water surrounding the proteins of healthy tissue than in the water surrounding the proteins of cancerous tissue. 4. the ability of structured water to improve bowel transit time and constipation in a clinical trial. 5. the ability of structured water to slow the growth of cultured cancer cells. One of the first questions people ask about the molecular structure of water is: How can a substance that is liquid have structure ? The best way to explain this is by introducing the term, coherence. In quantum physics, the term coherence is defined as a fixed phase relationship between waves or particles. For water to be coherent, molecules must move together, turning and spinning as if they were all connected like a sheet that blows in the wind. In a coherent system, things tend to stay organized for longer periods of time. In fact, quantum physicists are beginning to consider new ways...

What is ORP?

What is ORP?

The second change that takes place in water during ionization is in the oxidation/reduction potential (ORP). ORP is a measurement of the strength of the oxidizing or reducing power of a solution. Oxidation and reduction reactions involve an exchange of electrons. A negative ORP measurement indicates a surplus of electrons the more negative the number is, the greater the number of surplus electrons. A positive ORP measurement indicates instability. A solution with a positive ORP is hungry for electrons. We see examples of oxidation and reduction all the time. Oxidation is responsible for the breakdown of a substance. Rusting iron and a slice of apple turning brown are both examples of slow oxidation reactions. Fire is an example of rapid oxidation. Oxidation occurs when unstable molecules that are lacking electrons “strip” electrons from other molecules. This begins a chain reaction (one molecule stripping an electron from another molecule which then takes one from another and another) until the substance rusts, turns brown, burns up, or is completely broken down. Oxidation reactions also take place inside your body. They are a necessary function of the immune system which uses the oxidation reaction to strip electrons from bacteria and other invaders in order to halt the growth of infection inside your body. The opposite reaction, (reduction) occurs when the bacteria have been destroyed. Antioxidants are sent in to donate electrons and stop the destructive chain reaction. But if you have insufficient antioxidants in the form of vitamins, minerals, and enzymes, oxidation continues, destroying good tissue. The destruction of good tissue is known free radical damage. Most people know that antioxidants stop free radical damage. The essential function of an antioxidant is to supply electrons to electron-deficient free radicals so they no longer strip electrons from vital cells. The best antioxidants are the ones that are the most bio-available and the ones with the greatest electron donating capacity. Thousands of dollars are spent each year to purchase antioxidants for the purpose of stopping free radical damage because free radical damage is linked with inflammation, disease, pain, and aging. In fact, one well-known theory postulates that free radicals are the cause of aging. Having an ample supply of antioxidants is crucial for optimal health and graceful aging. Besides being a measure of electron activity, ORP is a measure of the antioxidant capacity of a solution. Since negative ORP values indicate an abundance of available electrons, any solution with a negative ORP is an antioxidant. A solution with a very negative ORP is an excellent antioxidant. To put...

pH level in your body

pH level in your body

The term, pH refers to the potential of hydrogen which is a measure of the hydrogen ion (H+) concentration and also a measure of acidity or alkalinity. The pH scale ranges from 0 on the acidic side to 14 on the alkaline side. A solution is neutral if the pH is 7. The pH scale is logarithmic, so a change of one pH unit indicates a tenfold shift in the concentration of hydrogen ions. For example: a pH of 6 is ten times more acidic than a pH of 7, and it is 100 times more acidic than a pH of 8. You can see how a slight shift in pH can be quite significant. In the human body, pH is critical especially in your blood. The pH range that is considered to be normal for blood is between 7.30 and 7.45. Blood pH is a direct indicator of how much oxygen is available for your cells. Blood at a pH of 7.45 contains 65% more excess oxygen than blood at a pH of 7.3.4 Lack of oxygen and the resulting metabolic acidosis is a component of just about every disease we know. Nobel prize-winning research in the 1930s and 1940s by Dr. Otto Warburg revealed that cancer could not live in an oxygen-rich environment. His research provided evidence that oxygen-starved cells switch to another mechanism for producing energy one that does not require oxygen and one that is capable of surviving in an acidic environment.5 Since his original research, most disease has been linked with the lack of oxygen and the build-up of acidic wastes. Blood with a pH of 7.3 is also thicker than blood with a more alkaline pH. Acid is partially responsible for blood clotting. A lower blood pH means thicker blood that is more difficult to pump. Both dehydration6 and low blood pH are now linked with high blood pressure. In today s world, most people s bodies and blood are more acidic than they should be. This is the result of poor diet (heavy in sugar, soft drinks, excessive protein, and refined carbohydrates), dehydration, stress, and environmental pollutants. Each of these contributes to acidosis and unfortunately also to disease and premature aging. Besides the consequences mentioned above, acidosis reduces your body’s ability to absorb minerals and nutrients. It reduces energy production and slows cellular regeneration. Acidosis is responsible for hardening of the arteries and it makes you more susceptible to fatigue and illness. In an overly acidic body, maintaining normal blood pH...
