INSIGHT: What You May Not Know About Water

Continuing on with my water safety series of posts, here and here, I have been researching more on everything about water and I have learnt a host of interesting facts, facts I wish to share with you today and hopefully you too will understand how and why water is good for your health and why it should be a priorty if you wish to stay healthy. This post will be broken down into 4 sub topics that I believe you should be aware of; Surface tension, Structured water, Bio-photons and Hydration.

Surface Tension And It's Impact To Water Quality.

Fig.1: A water strider demonstrates surface tension.

A liquid with a high surface tension has a sharp and tingly after bite to the human sense of taste because the chaotic molecules of the liquid come in conflict and do not blend with the structured and organized liquids with a low surface tension surrounding the tongue and mouth. A liquid with low surface tension has a smooth and silky sensation to the human sense of taste because the structured and coherent molecules in the liquid combine and blend effortlessly with the structured and organized molecules with a low surface tension surrounding the tongue and mouth.

The tingly or sour after bite of a liquid with a high surface tension is usually the first form of information and defense to an individual while the smooth, silky and flowing sensation of a liquid with a low surface tension is the first and most important indication that partial or total absorption of the hydrogen and oxygen molecules of the liquid will occur. This positive sensation is best translated in human verbal terms as "Oh that is wonderful and give me more!"

Most of us are not aware that water with a high surface tension and holding chemical elements other than hydrogen and oxygen and having a tingly after bite will not be absorbed by the cells in their bodies but only sloughed off into vital organs and systems. The impure water with minerals and high surface tension will be merely flushed out of the body. However, quite often not all of the unused and unwanted minerals are flushed out and will collect in the lymphatic system, kidneys and bladder therefore causing complications in those systems and organs.

Structured Water And Why Is It Important.

Did you know that the water inside your body's cells is structured water? Structured water is found in the cytoplasm of healthy tissue. It has a high solubility for the body's minerals, so minerals and vitamins, which are formed with structured water, tend to go from the digestive tract and bloodstream into the tissues. The water preferred by human cells is structured into small clusters containing 5 to 20 molecules.

Structured water is highly stable. It frees excess oxygen. It supports aerobic bacteria and kills anaerobic bacteria. Consuming structured water instantly hydrates the cells. When you drink tap water, your body expends around 100 Kilo Watts of energy to be hydrated. With structured water, your hydration is instantaneous and your energy can do what it's meant to do. It resets your DNA and RNA back to before circumstances and pollution.

The thing to be understood about structured water is that by changing the molecular structure of water, cluster sizes get measurably smaller, surface tension is reduced for greater ease of hydration, any materials in the water are also structured which neutralizes their ability to be assimilated in your body, and the information that the water had carried will have been erased. This creates life-giving rather than energy-taking water.

As your human body grows older, it is subjected to stress, contamination, pollutants, free radicals, poor diet and other external factors. Your body begins to dehydrate and the structured cell water present at your birth  begins to diminish, losing its effective shape. The result is that the ability to absorb water begins to decrease with aging.

What And Why Are Bio-photons Important?

Scientists have discovered that cells communicate by means of ultra weak light emissions called bio-photons. The quality of this light influences the order and coherence within a living system. Biophotons appear to facilitate instantaneous communication throughout our bodies. Bio photon research shows that all living substances emit weak light which is probably the means for an intricate web of communication and energy that entwines all living systems.

And the higher the structure of water, the more bio photons it has. They go hand in hand. Photons are an integral part of the body’s electrical system. Photons transmit electromagnetic frequencies throughout the body and water is the medium used to transfer these frequencies between cells. The DNA in your living cells store and release photons creating “bio photonic emissions”. Bio-photons are the driving force behind molecular coherence and at different frequencies they switch on a vast variety of biological processes in your body.

Hydration And It's Benefits.

Good hydration is essential for health and wellness. Every cell in the human body requires water. Hydration is central to the most basic physiological functions such as regulating blood pressure and body temperature, hydration and digestion. Some of the most remarkable benefits of hydration you may not be aware of are listed below:

Brain: Adequate hydration is important for proper functioning of your brain. When you are well hydrated, your brain cells are better supplied with fresh, oxygen-laden blood, and the brain remains alert. Mild levels dehydration can impair the ability to concentrate. While high levels of dehydration can affect your brain's processing abilities and impair short-term memory.

Cells: Hydration in your body is important for transporting carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals and other important nutrients and oxygen to the cells. The cells then produce energy for your body to function. Furthermore, hydration facilitates disposal of the waste products of metabolism, enabling the right cellular chemical function.

Digestive Tract: Hydration plays an important role in the digestion of food and the absorption of nutrients from the digestive tract. Water is required to dissolve nutrients so that they may be absorbed into the bloodstream and delivered to the cells. Insufficient hydration will slow the digestive process and chronic poor hydration can lead to constipation.

Heart: Fluids are important for healthy heart function and the correct regulation of water balance is essential to keep blood pressure within the healthy range. Dehydration decreases cardiac output which may lead to increases in heart rate and a fall in blood pressure. The circulatory system delivers a constant supply of oxygen to the brain, muscles and to all other tissues.

Kidneys: An adequate water intake is essential to keep the kidneys working well, helping them to remove waste products and excess nutrients mainly via urine. The kidneys regulate the body's water levels by increasing or decreasing the flow of urine. The kidneys also work to control normal levels of sodium and other electrolytes. A well-hydrated healthy person's kidneys filter approximately 180 litres of water each day: clearly most of this has to be reabsorbed to prevent excessive losses from the body.

Muscles and Joints: Water acts as a lubricant for muscles and joints; it helps cushion joints and keeps muscles working properly. Muscles and joints, in addition to the bones, are necessary for us to stand, sit, move and carry out all daily activities. Approximately 70 to 75 percent of the muscle is made up of water. Maintaining the right water balance is essential for optimum muscle function.

Skin: The skin constitutes a defense against pathogenic agents and contributes to preventing the development of infectious and allergic processes. Some people believe that good hydration helps to moisten body tissues and preserve the skin's elasticity, softness and coloring though this has not been researched adequately.

Temperature: The body water has an important role as a thermos-regulator, regulating the overall body temperature by helping dissipate heat. If the body becomes too hot, water is lost through sweat and the evaporation of this sweat from the skin surface removes heat from the body. Sweating is the most effective way that the body prevents itself from overheating.

In Conclusion

While water is not an absolute cure-all remedy, it must be recognized as the base and primary ingredient to every preventive and healing process within our body. Understanding how your body works is the first step towards achieving a higher level of health. Once you have this understanding then your actions will begin to work in harmony with your body’s natural instincts, creating the perfect internal environment. It is important to remember that you are a water machine and that by simply providing your body with the proper quality of water you can achieve an elevated level of health and wellness.
