All Facts About Water

Water and life are inseparable. Where there is one on the Earth, there is always another. The existence of any organic life, any seed or embryo begins in the water. Water is the ideal basis of biological life, not only on Earth, but also everywhere in the universe.

Water is a combination of two gases: hydrogen and oxygen, which are the first and the third largest number of chemical elements in space. No other gases, when combined, can form a liquid.

Unique Physical and Chemical Properties of Water:

  • Water is the only natural substance that can simultaneously exist in three states: liquid, solid and gaseous.
  • Water (hydrogen oxide) is a binary inorganic compound, the element formula is H2O. As is known, the water molecule consists of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom, connected by a covalent bond. Under normal conditions, it is a clear liquid, has no color (when in small volume), smell and taste.
  • This chemical compound is unique, because it has pronounced anomalies. For example, in a solid state, water is lighter than in a liquid state. Up to four degrees, water thickens and after four, it becomes less dense, and this gives it the opportunity to float upward.
  • Ice drifts on the water surface, the density of crystalline ice is less than the density of liquid – one of the largest anomalies of water. When any other substance passes from liquid state to solid, its density increases and the substance comes to be heavier.
  • In ice state, water particles are arranged very orderly, with plenty of free space between them. When  ice turns into water again, its particles become hundreds of thousands of times more active,  therefore free spaces will fill again. This makes liquid form of water denser and heavier than solid form.
  • Water also has an exclusive ability to dissolve other substances and wash out them. Therefore, it is extremely difficult to keep water in a completely clean state. Water from a tap or water from a natural reservoir that looks completely clean contains lots of contaminants and minerals.
  • Without water, various particles could not mix or spread out.
  • Water is the power that creates and gives lives. All of the anomalous and specific properties of water are so “successful” for all living beings, which makes water an indispensable basis for the existence of life on Earth.

Not so long ago, scientists drew attention to the fact that the course of chemical reactions in the water depends on time. Every day it is different. It became known that the nature of the reaction in water depend on the solar-day activity rhythm. The properties of water are not completely investigated and scientists still expect numerous discoveries ahead.

Water Memory Research

 

Masaru Emoto Water Memory Research

Two other extremely important properties of water are amazing: memory and informativeness.

It turned out that water is capable of perceiving, conserving and transmitting information, even words and thoughts of humans, and their feelings.

For over 30 years, the Japanese scientist Masaru Emoto is engaged in studying these properties. He wrote  “The Hidden Messages in Water”. The book is popular and translated into several languages. Emoto studies revealed that water, like a person or an intelligent animal, reacts to vibration, energy, thought, words, ideas and music.

In his experiments Emoto proved that human’s energy vibrations, ideas and music can affect the molecular structure of water. Emoto visually documented these molecular fluctuations in water using special photography methods. He froze dews of water, exposed to various reactions, and then shot those using optical microscope with a built-in camera.

The scientists revealed several surprising changes in the crystal structure of water taken from various sources and from diverse conditions from all over the globe. Water from ancient mountain rivers and springs was perfectly shaped and geometrically structured. Contaminated and poisonous water from manufacturing areas and stagnant water from water pipes and reservoirs had a disturbed and casually formed structure.

The scientist studied the influence of various musical compositions, human feelings, thoughts, words and even graphic images on the development of the crystal structure of water. It turned out that if you talk to water with love and tenderness, then its molecular structure changes, and photos fix a beautiful hexagonal shape resembling a flower.

Harmonious, soft, beautiful music after several hours of exposure, nice words printed on paper and pasted over night to glass with water, smiles or positive emotions – it incredibly transformed water. The crystals were beautiful and perfect. Negative words, feelings, heavy rock music, had the opposite effect.

Here are a few photos of crystals from M. Emoto’s book.

 Love                               Gratefulness                     Hatred

Given that the human brain consists of 80-90% of water, it is logical to assume that, in fact, its not tissues that respond to the emotions, water responds to it. In other words, the question can be formulated as follows: what is the basis for the formation of thoughts? The brain or water contained in it?

In our brains, of course, there is an amount of solid matter. However, it is not able to function in the absence of water. While official science does not take water into account and focuses on the functioning of the solid matter in the brain, it is water that obviously is what really functions in the brain.

Water can be the true brain that generates the thinking process!

Brain and water function

When you drink fresh water from a mountain stream, you immediately feel vigor and energy. Water from the mountain stream has a high energy level, this energy penetrates into every cell of the body, and the entire body is filled with it. Energetically saturated water has no memories of poisons and unfavorable influences.

Therefore, it is not surprising that the brain immediately reacts to this vibration, and you feel freshness and a burst of energy. Scientists have discovered that the memory of water can be erased only in two cases.

  • The first is when the water is exposed to high temperatures, that is, when the water begins to evaporate, and then in the form of precipitation or condensation again goes into its natural liquid state.
  • The second case is when the water is frozen, and then it again becomes defrosted. In these two cases, water recovers its original properties, and the molecules acquire their natural form in the form of a regular snowflake.

Importance of Water to Life

 

human embryo consists of water

Our body mainly consists of water. The human embryo is 97% consists of water. The newborn has  about 80% of the body weight. Most intensively, he loses fluid in the first days of life – a physiological loss of body weight occurs (5-7%).

Over the years, the amount of water in the body is constantly decreasing. In children under 5 years of age, the water in the body is already about 70% of the body weight. By the time we reach 50-60 years of age, our body contains no more than 50-60% of water.

We all know how elastic and soft the skin is in infants. They bend, remaining plump, like a ball full of water. The degree of flexibility inherent in infants and young children, unfortunately, decreases with age.

The water content in different tissues varies from 20% in adipose tissue to 83-90% in kidneys and blood, in women due to the large amount of fat cellulose the water content is lower than that of men. Our brain is a moist substance and consists 85% of water, saliva 99%, muscles 60%. Especially a lot of water is in the blood – up to 90%, and the vitreous eye contains consists of 96-99%.

Thanks to water that delicate regulation of all processes in the body is ensured. Water regulates the mass and temperature of our body, carries nutrients to the cells and removes toxins and products of decay from the body, protects internal organs, participates in the process of breathing, dissolves mineral salts, helps the body to absorb nutrients and convert food into energy.

Water exchange is regulated by thirst and metabolism, leading to the formation of water due to oxidation processes, acid-base balance (acidosis increases diuresis, alkalosis – reduces), as well as the functional state of the kidneys that play a decisive role in water metabolism.

Sharp shifts in the water balance both in the direction of hypo and hyper-hydration adversely affect the general state of the human body. When the water level in the body is reduced by only 2%, a person feels tired. If it drops by 8%, serious health problems should be expected, and by 12% – cardiac arrest is likely.

The body water is located in different areas and does not mix into one common mass. There is the cellular and extracellular sector.

The Extracellular Water is:

– Water of plasma;
– Interstitial water (an aqueous solution of inorganic salts, nutrients and end products of metabolism) and lymph;
– Water contained in dense connective tissue (cartilage, tendons);
– Water of bone tissue;
– Intercellular water, which is secreted by the mucous and serous membranes of the organs, and is also contained in the hollow organs, endocrine and exocrine glands.

Extracellular water accounts for about 45% of the total amount of water in a young adult person, and accounts for 27% of body weight. The remaining amount of water (55%) is located intracellularly and is 33% of body weight.

In infants, most of the water in the body is inside the cells, which makes them more energetic and healthy. With age and loss of moisture, the liquid goes out of the cells, gathering in the spaces between them, and can no longer go back. There are many reasons why extracellular water is difficult to penetrate the cell membrane and update their functions when we reach the elderly.

Stress, lack of oxygen and blood supply of cells, dehydration, drinking contaminated water, coffee, carbonated drinks and alcohol affect this process. Each of these factors affects the development of chronic dehydration and premature aging.

The drying up of the body is one of the most significant factors of aging. This was written by Avicenna in  Recipes of Longevity. Gradual reduction of the amount of water in the body leads to a thickening of blood and lymph, slowing down metabolism, reducing the elasticity of the joints, skin and muscles, and the appearance of wrinkles. The life of the cells of the body goes away together with the water!

What are the Benefits of Drinking Water and Why Drink More Pure Water?

 

why drink more pure water

Very often, nutritionists and even doctors pay much more attention to food and its calories, often forgetting that the body needs a sufficient amount of solvent to deliver nutrients to the cells.

Recent studies by American scientists have shown that 70% of preschool children do not drink clean water at all. Parents prefer to give their children juices, considering them more useful than water. However, the habit of drinking juices and carbonated beverages leads to a disruption of the water balance in the body and an increase in its susceptibility to various diseases. Lack of water is the cause of many chronic diseases.

Signs of dehydration are dry skin, headaches, fatigue, depression, muscle spasms. Chronic dehydration can lead to problems with blood pressure, circulatory and digestive problems, kidney dysfunction and severe problems in any system of our body. Symptoms of chronic dehydration may include heartburn, joint and back pain, colitis, fibromyalgia, asthma, allergies, diabetes, psoriasis, eczema and other diseases.

Those who drink little water get sick more often. Water moisturizes the surface of the bronchi and the mucous membrane of the stomach and intestines (areas that are most susceptible to bacterial and virus attacks), activating their protective properties. When the body lacks water, the mucous membranes become dehydrated and dry. Then sputum and mucus stick to the walls of the respiratory tract, turning into a good environment for bacteria and viruses.

As we know, water is a part of lymph. Lymphatic vessels carry out the most important function of purification, filtration and excretion of proteins and digestive waste from the body together with water. Lymph vessels have gamma globulins (protective antibodies) and enzyme lysozyme, which has antibacterial properties. Normal functioning of the immune system without clean drinking water is impossible.

Water participates in all metabolic processes. In order to increase their speed and lose weight, you need to drink more clean water. If body is having water deficiency, on the contrary, it slows down all its processes and begins to defer fat.

In addition, insufficient use of clean water makes the mucous membranes of the gastrointestinal tract more vulnerable to aggressive effects of gastric juice, which ultimately can lead to the development of erosive and ulcerative processes. Pure water is also necessary in order to absorb and break down sugar, as well as proteins involved in tissue growth and restoration.
