I am a field geologist, and a few years I started to develop severe gout-like symptoms in my foot. These symptoms generally occurred after working in areas where I tended to get overly dehydrated (desert or tropical environments). I have found that massive hydration (drinking 2-3 liters of water over an hour or two) tends to almost immediately (within a few hours) reverse my symptoms. Hydration generally keeps me gout free, and when gout does occur (very rarely now), it is the gout "cure" for me. It sounds almost too simple (and cheap) to be true, but it works for me.

Hard Water

Question for Bill from San Fernando:

Hi Bill, I am hoping you can answer a question I have on water. We have our own well water which we drink, unfortunately it tests quite high for being hard. I just came on some information about hard water can cause hardening of the arteries could you help me with this. Thank you.

Hi Cindy... Well-water or any beneficial natural water will usually always be hard -- hard means that it just has minerals dissolved in it. Soft water has had all the minerals taken out of it either naturally or chemically and that's not so beneficial to drink. After all, mineral water is also hard water -- the minerals in the mineral water are beneficial for the body.

Provided the water tests on your well did not show high amounts of Bromide, Fluoride, Chlorine or Heavy Metals, pesticides etc and didn't show any dangerous microbes in the well-water, then the well water should be beneficial for the body because of its natural mineral content.

Hexagonal Water

Has anyone heard of hexagonal water, is it real or a scam?

Hexagonal water is real indeed! You may want to order the fascinating book on it, sorry I don't have it in front of me to tell you the author's name. It is also called restructured water. You invest in a small machine the size of a blender and it spins your water in a vortex and restructures it to have 6 sides instead of 5. When you drink the water it seems lighter and hydrates better than regular water. This water also has more hydrogen in it because it will pull that from the air as it spins. I use my machine constantly. You can also energize the water further with additional minerals or say silver for instance.

I have a water ionizer and I love it. It seems to be doing great things for me and my body. What do you think about water ionizers?

Kangen Water

Hi Ted / Bill,

I would like to know your opinion about the Kangen Water, whether it is true about the benefits of drinking Kangen Water, they claim. I request any body who is using Kangen Water for drinking or for any other purpose to give their feed back. Thanks.

Baldev: Kangen water is based upon the principle that the frequency of cells is different than pathogens. When the energy of the cells is higher well being results. When the energy of the diseases is higher illness results. The war between the cells and the pathogens is electromagnetic in nature. Kangen water has a better structure that increases the energies. There is a video on you tube of a raw foodist who takes it. There are three problems with kangen water. The machine is over priced and very expensive. Kangen water doesn't have any nutrients. There are foods that have both kangen water and nutrients. Live ferments, home grown sprouts, and raw organic fruit have kangen water and nutrients. Adding activated barley to water makes kangen water. God made kangen water originally. Saponins also make kangen water. A $389 vitamix blender gives nutrients in raw organic fruit a better structure that produces more energy. As fruit ripens the green chlorophyll is changed to it's analogues. Kangen water doesn't have the number one nutrient. Chlorophyll changes sunlight into food. You can get raw organic fruit from Organic India. They have over two hundred farms and ship everywhere in the country.

Hi Mikes 62,

Well, I agree with you. But we live in such a contaminated environment and GM food every where that it is not possible to live without any external help of supplements / helpful things. India too is no more what it used to be as an organic country. To enhance the yield to take care of the population here too GM food is creeping in.

So, I would like to have the comments from people who are using the Kangen Water and if Ted / Bill can comment through their research, whether it is worth investing that kind of money in to it. Thanks, Baldev

Baldev: The Hunza tribe of the Himalayas live very well even up into their 80's because they drink glacial milk. Glacial milk is the kangen water God made. The kangen water machine is just an over priced blender that man makes trying to mimic what God already made. You can make kangen water with glacial milk powder. It contains hydrogen and a special form of silica. A scientist spent 2 decades developing the formula. Just add some powder to water and you have a superior form of kangen water.

The Benefits of Magnetized Water and a simple way to make your own

What holds water molecules together in clusters is surface tension. This is what you see when you wash your car and the water beads up in droplets on the hood. When washing your car, you use detergent to break that surface tension -- which breaks apart the large molecular clusters, making the water wetter and better able to clean. Obviously, you can't use detergent to "improve" the bioavailability of your drinking water. But you can use magnetics.

Magnetizing your drinking water breaks its surface tension, making it wetter and more useable by every cell in your body. In addition, there's a strong secondary benefit. Applying a magnetic field to water can not only make it wetter, but it can also raise its pH (up to a full point, depending on the water).

The ratio of small cluster water to large cluster water changes over time in your body. When you are born, there is a high percentage of small cluster water present. As you age, however, that percentage steadily drops -- eventually becoming almost nonexistent.

One of the problems is that small cluster water is not stable. (The electric charges inherent in water continually cause the small clusters to bind together into larger and larger clusters. And to make matters worse, the process is accelerated when water is exposed to air and light.

Water On the Market

Recently, in health food stores, I've noticed that they are now selling small cluster water in little bottles for large prices. Why would you want to pay inflated prices for small amounts of clustered water when you could have as much as you wanted for FREE?

Instructions to make your own Magnetized Water
Take a plastic water bottle and using painters tape to attach several disc magnets, I used neodium magnets (1/2 diameter) to the bottle. Make sure that north is facing in for all of the magnets that you attach. You can find disc magnets almost anyplace that sells magnets. I used 10 magnets, 5 on each side of the bottle. They worked great. You could easily taste the fact that the water was "wetter, " and they raised the pH of the water a full 1/2 point. Water placed in this bottle will fully magnetize very quickly -- in 5-10 minutes, or less.

I have been drinking the magnetized water for a week now and it tastes so much better and "wetter" than any other water while doing taste tests.

Becky, thanks for this post. Also, one can purchase a clamp-type magnet placed on the inlet cold water pipes. How effective these are I dunno. Also the powerful supplement "Cell Food" or "Cell Power" also has this effect on water thru the stimulus of Deuterium Sulfate. Either method restores the "virginity" of water (H2O). All the stressors (positive charged electrons) of our environment wish to rob the negative charge of the Oxygen atom thus adulterating the original composition of water. Magnets use this same magic wherever we apply them, thus reducing stress and inflammation, returning the organism to it's original balanced polarity.

Hi Timh, thanks for your response, I have noticed over time that drinking this water, my body/mind has responded in a number of astonishing ways.

Joy de Vive, clarity of mind, my mouth feels the freshest it has felt in years and I think that my skin is getting smoother.... Most notable is how my mouth feels so fresh always like I just brushed my teeth........ Absolutely amazing.

Hope to help, there are guardian angels walking amongst us!

Thanks for posting the link to the magnitized water info. Their method works very well, but there's an even faster way. Get a magnitized 6" square pad. You place your water jug on it. It will magnitize a gallon of water in only one hour. OR set your water glass on it. An 8 oz cup will be ready in ten minutes. The pad will last "forever." Search online.

Does anyone have information or links for using or making ionized or magnetized water for drinking and any health benefits they have had? Thanks to all

Cindy: You made a good decision asking wonderful E.C., the best place for folk medicine, first, because this is the skinny, or could I say dope, being from rocky mountain high, on water. Many people suffer, not because they don't have a gizmo, but because they don't eat raw organic and grass fed whole foods that all wild animals in nature have eaten for eons. People would lead you to believe that their gadgets are better than God's Goodies. You need carbs, oils, proteins, vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals in the proper doses and ratios in their most active form to function optimally, not a thing a ma gig. The 4 best waters are volcano, spring, water from home made water kefir, and water from raw organic and grass fed whole foods. A mountain lion can high jump 20ft and broad jump 60ft. He doesn't drink water from a machine. He gets his water from a raw herbivore who has been eating raw wild greens.

Found this very interesting link. Helpful for those of us with the need to re-mineralize teeth and better hair growth amongst many other things including cancer and is easy enough to try out yourself. Trouble is, our black sand is on the west coast and I live on the east!!! Worth a drive I think.

Mineral Water

Posted by Biodoc (San Francisco) on 01/19/2014

Healing with mineral water has a long history all over the world. There are lots of healing mineral spas in the Europe, where people with chronic liver, pancreas, gallbladder, intestinal diseases, and metabolic disorders spend healthy vacation by using drinking healing mineral water, diet, massage, acupuncture and so on. The small Czech town of Karlovy Vary has been a well-known international healing resort since the 1700s.

Visitors throughout Europe, America, and Asia traveled to Karlovy Vary for a few months stays to drink healing mineral water for various chronic conditions. For sick rich people, which couldn't go to Karlovy Vary, water was carried by bottles and barrels all over Europe. European doctors understood that the mineral content is a primary healing factor of this water and began producing the salt from the evaporated thermal spring water in 1764. Dissolving the salt in the warm water has been given the chance for home treatment.

According to research of European doctors who practice alternative medicine, the most beneficial action of the water in chronic diseases is to increase production and improve the flow of bile and pancreatic juice. Additionally, healing mineral water supplies the pancreas with the alkaline minerals and bicarbonates, the key ingredients of the pancreatic juice. Alkaline pH is critical for pancreatic juice because digestive enzymes work only in an alkaline environment.

Ozonated Water

Would like to hear feedback from folks who have ingested ozonated water for whatever purpose.

HI U SAVVY, , , , , , , Have had an ozone generator for several months and it was bought in my effort to defeat Lymphoma. Will not address my cancer and cannot tell what effect ozonated water has on my health. I will tell you that doing ear insufflation has driven my candida nuts. The little buggers are raging, and my ears crusting over and itching like mad. My only relief is to coat them with ozonated oil. I'm sure my anal insufflation and ozone sauna has them looking for places to hide. All the critters that we house are not dummies. That is the reason anti-biotics are of little use anymore. Know this was not your question, but you know how I am. ==RH==

I found this site through searching for information on Cold Showers. Very interesting material indeed. I am well into my 60's and keep running/jogging and have 'enjoyed' a Cold Shower for quite some time. Can I expand your thinking on water? Ten or so years ago I read the book - "Your Body's Many Cries for Water". I have found it so helpful. Drinking water is quite therapeutic I have discovered. I have studied this work and if you need a 'free' and perhaps unusual 'help' read this work. Consider it seriously.

Reverse Osmosis Water

Posted by Prema (Cambridge, England) on 10/17/2011

Hi, I recently read [on earthclinic] to add 1/4 salt and 1/8 teaspoon bicarb to reverse osmosis water. I also read that adding lemon juice makes it antioxidant. I am hoping that someone can please answer my questions: do I add all 3 [bicarb, lemon and salt] and to how much water do I add the 1/4 salt and 1/8 bicarb, 1 glass, 1 litre? I am desperate to know as I don't want to give me and my family unsafe water to drink. Thanks ever so much in advance. Prema

Reverse Osmosis Water
Posted by Sam (Commerce Twp, Michigan/USA) on 02/21/2009

Adding minerals to Reverse Osmosis Water: Since R.O water lacks any minerals, is it still necessary to add a liquid mineral to R.O water if one is taking a good quality mineral supplement- in pill form.

Also, I have been taking Apple Cider Vinegar, (2 teaspoons in 16 oz water),but since it is acidic, should I be adding baking soda to bring the ph up to 7-8 or doesn't it matter?

The first time my sister was pregnant she tried every product she could find for constipation. During her second pregnancy I suggested she drink seltzer water. I had read about it in a magazine. I also had cravings for seltzer water during my last 2 pregnancies and never had any problems with constipation. She told me she didn't like the taste and couldn't drink it. A few weeks later she let slip she was mixing it with juice and was actually regular for once.

Sinus Infections

After months of a sinus infection I found that drinking a full glass of water from a copper cup first thing in morning to be beneficial. It cleared my sinuses overnight and finally the skin around my nose started to heal after 3 days. However, one has to be persistent with this treatment - at least a month - otherwise it comes back if not all bacteria is cleared out of the body. Please make sure to eat healthy - as many have observed before too much milk, fried food and extremely spiced food can cause imbalances for the liver and set up liver stagnation (TCM). This in turn may lead to headaches and the liver cannot filter all bacteria if it is overtasked (which is one of its primary functions).

Buy an Ayurvedic copper cup or any pure copper vessel - make sure it is absolutely clean (citron juice and salt will clean it naturally). Fill with water in the evening and leave over night. Drink first thing in the morning. Copper water is a natural purification for the body and kills harmful bacteria - without ever causing resistance or harmful side effects. Check the internet for more information.

Hi Karina, Thank you for this good information. I wonder if I can use a copper electrodes instead of silver one to make colloidal copper instead of colloidal silver. Do you think it will work to clear the infection? Because water poured in copper vessels will dissolve some copper ions in the water. Did you use distilled water or any water?
