The Healing Power of Water, Part 2
For more than 25 years I have watched patients in my practice increase their water consumption dramatically and still come in with symptoms of dehydration. I have had countless people tell me how much healthier their reverse osmosis system is, despite the fact that they have conditions that relate to an overabundance of metabolic acids in their bodies. You may be eating the very best food, following a strict nutritional program, getting plenty of exercise, practicing yoga, meditating daily and receiving every natural therapy under the sun... and still not feel well. Because it’s all about the water....
Thousands of years ago, human cultures began around fresh water sources. Rivers, streams, and lakes not only provided drinking water, but the teaming wildlife and vegetation that that came to water provided an abundant food source. But when you watch wildlife and plant life, you realize that they are drawn to moving water as opposed to stagnant water. You will never see animals drink from stagnant ponds unless they have no alternative.
The movement of water creates ions which also explains why rushing water in streams and waterfalls is so relaxing to the human psyche and body. This ionization is a key aspect of the healing power of water. And this was understood by ancient Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Indian and Chinese sources... in fact all the ancient cultures that developed around water. Only now are we beginning to understand the mechanism by which this works.
Water has many functions inside the human body, but when you drink water that is "captured" water, i.e. not drunk fresh from the source, you are only experiencing a few of these functions: lubrication of the gastrointestinal tract, hydration of the gut lining, water volume for the blood and water volume for the kidneys. What you are missing is complete hydration at a cellular level, alkalinity to offset metabolic acids and biochemical antioxidant activity.
Did you even know that water could do that? Our modern culture has a very narrow view of the power of water, which is why the clinical work of Dr. Masaru Emoto was so surprising to so many people. To realize that water could react at a molecular level to vibration and energy and then carry that reaction within itself is only a step towards remembering the true nature of water. So many of our children never see true water sources, instead only seeing water in swimming pools, in bottles and from our tap. They never experience the energy that a waterfall generates. They have never seen a hydroelectric plant. If they did, they would understand the enormous energy reserves that ionization draws from water and makes available.
Just ask anyone that has had the opportunity to drink ionized water for a period of time. It changes the energy reserves of the body, which allows your functions to work more efficiently with less effort. It’s like drinking in energy, which is exactly how water is at the source. Many of our diseases are linked to a lack of water absorption. So many people drink water constantly, yet remain dehydrated at a cellular level. I’ve seen professional athletes that drink a gallon of water a day and yet their skin is as dry as paper, their mouth is dry, their eyes are dry. Why is all that water not reaching these vital areas?
The answer is that drinking water today may keep you alive, but it will not keep you healthy. It will not do what water from nature has done for thousands of years, because it is not ionized and the ionization is the missing piece that contains all the healing power of water at a cellular level. From this perspective, reverse osmosis water, bottled water, tap water, Britta filtered water, vitamin water, well water or just about any other water you can name is still a pale version of what water in nature can provide. Filtration, added minerals, added vitamins do not restore the healing aspects that have been removed from water during whatever process is used to bring it to your table. The very act of capturing water and transporting it destroys its inherent healing ability.

Because it’s all about the water.... Water is the ONLY substance that can be absorbed directly through a cell membrane. If you look at the science of cellular transport, water has its own unique transport method — osmosis. That uniqueness at a cellular level is why cells respond first and foremost to water. Without the healing properties of water in its natural state, many cells actually become resistant to osmosis leading to dehydration and death of cells. Many conditions of allergies or chronic inflammatory disorders may actually be massive cellular death due to dehydration and the body’s immune reaction to the histamines that are created when cells die.
So the answer is the technology of ionization which can produce the same action of breaking water that nature does so well. Without this restructuring of the water molecule, we are consuming nothing but a liquid lubricant, even if it is a well-filtered one. Don’t just settle for feeling OK each day instead of great. It may be as simple as your next glass of water....
