How much do you know about the water you are drinking, using in your home to shower or bath, cook with, giving to your pets, plants, do laundry with, etc? There is more to water than just filtering it or purifying it to make it safe to drink and use. Water has memory, it recieves, stores and transmits information.
The Nature Of Water
The true nature of water can be likened to a computer hard disk or device that can store data. As mentioned above, water recieves, stores and transmits information (in the form of frequency) about anything it comes into contact with. This is the “water has memory” theory that has been proven time and time again. However, this theory is not widely accepted and receives a lot of criticism. In other words, water is like maleable steel, it can be shaped in anyway or form.
Some folks know that the way we treat or handle water influences its properties, characteristics and qualities positively or negatively. Unfortunately, this concept eludes many.
Water is truly the Elixir Of Life. Where life is involved there needs to be a source of life energy. Many naturally occurring things are in one or another a source of life energy. Water is one of those nature’s occurrences that have and supply life energy with the ability to store it as well.
Living water is water that is live giving or supporting. Water in its natural state and before any form of contamination it is live supporting. This water has certain characteristics and qualities that disappear once it is tampered with in some way. Tampering with water can be with good intentions but this may change water to be less effective it what it can inherently do.
Life force is in many respects described in spiritual terms which may imply that for people that are not spiritually inclined it does not exist. However, life force is the force or influence that gives its vitality or strength or in other words the spirit or energy that animates living things. Human beings, animals and plants have it and absorb it from some of nature’s existences.
Hydration describes or relates to the act of water in a living organism be it a person, an animal or a plant. When the organisms takes in water it is said to be hydrating and lack of adequate or optimal levels of water in it, is described as dehydration. Therefore hydration plays an important role in the life of an organism, absence of which may lead to death or serious diseases.
Structured Water – Optimal State Of Water
Water as a natural resources and one of nature’s occurrences intrinsically a culmination of the above; it is living, has life force and hydrating in the most optimal way. That is how water is in its natural way. That is if it is not tampered with in anyway. This original form of water is often referred to as structured water (though it has many other names).
The Energy of water sets the stage for your Health, Vitality and Healing… Tap water does not have it. Bottled water does not have it. Reverse Osmosis water does not have it. Distilled water does not have it. Structured water has this ENERGY called Life Force…
It is true, our systems may be making water safe to drink but at a cost… among other things some remove all the essential trace elements found in water, some kill the water i.e. reducing or removing the life force, some add harmful chemicals, etc.
Best Water To Drink With Vitality & Optimal Hydration
Water can be restored to be full of vitality and highly optimizing by introducing water structuring units or systems to the already existing water filter systems.
Restored water to its intrinsic state, also known as structured water, can be measured or determined by considering the following characteristics among others.
- Balanced Spin
- Surface Tension
- Level Of Oxygen
- pH Balance
- Aerobic Microbes
- Trace Minerals
- Odor & Taste
- Chemical Content
Read How To Measure Structured Water?
Water has many sources but for the sake of simplicity we are going to look at 4 main ones that can be considered the base of where water comes from. These are rain water, surface water, underground water and prepared water.
Rain water is simply rain and its water can be harvested or collected for consumption and other uses. It can be collected at home at micro level or at macro level where channels are built to direct it to dams, resevoirs, lakes, rivers, etc. At the same time it freely flows into such epecially rivers… Once it collects it can be used, after treatment, for consumption and other ways…
Surface water is water that is found in the surface of the earth including water from the oceans, seas, rivers, glaciers, etc. Surface water also comes from rain and collects in these areas. This water is also available for human use and other uses demanded by the modern life after treatment to make it “safe”. Surface water makes the most of available water…
Underground water is water buried deep or trapped in the ground and yet it can be available for use. This water can be accessed when it develops into a spring or through a well. A srping in normally natural and not influenced by man while a well can be dug to reach the water and make it available for use. Normally spring water does not have to be treated unlike well water…
Prepared water is basically any water that is treated to make it safe for consumption and this is normally done in large scale. An example of prepared water would be city water or municipal water or tap water. This is the most available water in most areas of the world unless in very remote areas where well water or spring water are the main source of water in the area…
Properties, Characteristics and Qualities Of Water
The properties, characteristics and quality of water differ depending on the physical structure, energy status of water, electrical and magnetic properties, chemical nomenclature and configuration as well as the physical and chemical components in the water. Water is like malleable steel, it is dynamic and it can be influenced by anything it comes into contact with.
The main property of water that is perhaps not changing is its dynamic nature of receiving, storing and transmitting (often called water memory).
Physical Structure Of Water
By physical structure we refer to the physical arrangement or organization of molecules of water. Water molecules group into clusters. When we talk of clusters, picture salt – there is coarse salt and fine salt, both have grains. Liken each grain to one cluster of water molecules. Further, note that either salt has fine grains such that the biggest sized grain in fine salt can be found in coarse salt.
On the other hand, coarse salt has big grains that cannot be found in fine salt. So in other words the way clusters form in water, and depending on the quality of water, is similar in the way coarse salt and fine salt are. The “finer” the clusters the more the structure of water becomes orderly and organized and the bigger the clusters are the more the water becomes disorderly and disorganized in structure.
This physical structure of water can be influenced by motion or lack of. When water moves or flows naturally in streams, rivers, etc. it swirls and spirals as it moves forward. When water moves in this way, also known as vortex movement, it tends to attain an orderly structure and in turn form finer clusters as in the case of fine salt.
However, when water is stored in dams and reservoirs (when it is stagnant) or transported in long pipes it tends to become bulky i.e. forms large clusters as in the case of coarse salt. This kind of water can also be referred to as unstructured water.
Chemical Nomenclature & Configuration Of Water
The chemical nomenclature of pure water is H2O, however recent science findings have discovered another form of water whose molecular formula is H3O2. H3O2 water is called gel water or EZ water. This is the 4th phase of water as in forming the forth state adding to gas state, liquid state and solid state. It comes between the liquid and solid states.
So the presence of H3O2 molecules in water has a bearing on the properties, characteristics and qualities of that water. The more the H3O2 molecules the more it gets orderly in structure and become better than unstructured water.
Electromagnetic Properties Of Water
Water has magnetic and electrical properties. Water is electrically charged due to presence of free floating electrons as chemical reactions happen in the water. Due to this electrical charge (that can be measured using a volt meter and measured in mV) there is an electric field and where there is an electric field there is a magnetic field.
Water can be negatively or positively charged depending on a number of factors. However, negatively charged water is the type of water that is associated good quality water.
Bio-Energy In Water
Water can absorb light energy or photons. Photons are the bio-energy in all living things and can be measured using a GDV Camera.
Frequencies In Water
According to Quantum Physics everything has unique vibrational energy emitting specific frequency. Water has the capability to absorb any frequency. Frequency to water is the same as 0s and 1s to computer language.
Functions, Benefits & Uses Of Water
Water has many functions, benefits and uses to all life. First and foremost it supports life and has found use in and beneficial to all life, be it human life, animal life or plant life. At the same time and apart from its health benefits, water has found different uses in life in general as it is needed in almost every aspect of life; at the home it is needed for task like washing, bathing, cooking, etc., in farming, industry and other commercial practices it is needed.
Water has health benefits to people, animals and plants. The underlying secret to health of any living thing is hydration. Once a living organism is hydrated well enough it thrives… This is because hydration alone has many benefits in effecting the innate use of water by a living thing.
When it comes to domestic uses of water, the list is endless. In a home water is needed for drinking, bathing, washing, cooking and even gardening. Without water, domestic life will be non-existent. We do not need water only to drink for health purposes but also to do other chores around the house.
There cannot be agriculture without water. Agricultural practice includes but not limited to hydroponics, aquaculture, dairies, animal rearing or production, poultry, etc. Any form of rearing or planting requires water. Water may be available as rain water or from irrigation systems.
Commercial & Industrial
When in commercial or industrial business inevitably you need water. This is apart from having water for drinking and other chores described above. There are commercial businesses like Hair Salons And Spas, Restaurant And Hotels, Public Pools where water use can be described domestic use in steroids…
Problems With (Untreated) Water
Water used raw (or untreated) from the source can pose a health risk or unsafe for use. How unsafe it is depends on the source and location. In most instances water has contaminants (some harmful some not) but it is the type of pollutant and the degree of concentration that determines what needs to be done to the water.
The complication comes in when these things are at higher than desired concentrations, or presence of other harmful things (living or chemical), etc. So hard water can be treated with water softeners or by removing these minerals. If the water does not have minerals that harden it, it may have contaminants. There are at least 5 types of contaminants;
In the olden days or in rural areas or undeveloped world water is collected in rivers, ponds, wells, etc. and used as is for drinking and other chores or may be boiled and/or sieved. It may be collected containing particles that are visible to the naked eye, like dirt, silt, sand, and sediment. And that is when it needs to be sieved to remove these particles. Other than that it is used as is. However, this is rare and highly dangerous in urban or industrialized areas.
In some cases water may contain elements like aluminum, calcium, iron, magnesium and manganese. Water with these minerals can be clean enough for drinking except that it will have a dull taste. It is also notorious for leaving a hard-to-clean residue usually white especially on heating elements and pipes. If left unattended for longer periods the heating elements gradually become ineffective until useless while pipes their passages narrow down until may be closed completely.
Water may contain toxic chemicals like pharmaceuticals, pesticides, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), perfluorinated chemicals (PFCs). These are unhealthy
Depending on location water may contain bacteria, protozoa, viruses and other nasty organisms that spread or cause diseases and other health complications.
Heavy metals in water pose a threat to human health. The most common heavy metal pollutants are arsenic, cadmium, chromium, copper, nickel, lead and mercury.
The Journey Of Water
The water we drink today is the water that has always been there, the difference is it has gone through a lot of processes and treatments. The journey of water is not about the water cycle but rather what it goes through in the name of making it safe to consume and reusable.
Water has always been understood to be simple hydrogen and oxygen molecules when in its pure state nad that it can be gas, liquid or solid. Also drinkable water does not have to be completely pure as in hydrogen and oxygen molecules only but can have other things like living organisms, minerals, etc. in it as well and yet still be fit for consumption.
Problems From Increased Water Usage
Water usage increased over the years as well as its applications especially with more and more industrial and commercial usage. This increase created problems – water shortage, water pollution and more. Further, solutions were initiated which created more problems some of which were not apparent until recently.
Increase in population and activities that need water usage adversely affect availability of water. Water shortage entails less available clean water safe for drinking and domestic use.
Water pollution is, in most cases, a by-product of increase in population and activities. Water is used for bathing, washing, flushing and in industries and other commercial uses and becomes waste water. Water can also get contaminated due to contact with waste or toxic materials
Solutions To Make Cleaner & More Water Available
A lot of problems occurred due to increase in water usage and new methods and innovations were introduced to circumvent the situation. Among the problems, the 2 main ones are water shortage and pollution. Most water available is surface water and is laden with contaminants causing all sorts of problems like bad smell. Water may smell badly because of various reasons including, bacteria, hydrogen sulfide (smells like rotten eggs), decaying debris or organic matter, chemicals, like pesticides, iron or manganese and because of these it needs to be cleaned before use.
The little available underground water is also got contaminated in some areas due to leaching and being in contact with dangerous substances. Rain water also falls down already toxic from atmospheric gases emitted due to industrialization. So the solutions introduced aimed at retaining and reusing the available water.
Water Treatment, Purification & Recycling
Water treatment or water purification can be synonymous because their aim is to improve the quality of water to make it more acceptable for a specific end-use. The end use may be drinking, industrial water supply, irrigation, river flow maintenance, water recreation or many other uses, including being safely returned to the environment. Both involve removing undesirable chemicals, biological contaminants, suspended solids, and gases from water.
Water treatment and purification remove contaminants and undesirable components, or reduce their concentration so that the water becomes fit for its desired end-use. This treatment is crucial to human health and allows humans to benefit from both drinking and irrigation use. These processes may also be carried out for a variety of other purposes, including medical, pharmacological, chemical, and industrial applications.
It is common nowadays to filter treated water like tap water (though it is claimed to be treated) and raw water like well water. No one filter does it all because the type of water filter used depends on a number of things top of which are water source and the contaminants.
However there are 2 primary types of water filters. Filters that use physical or mechanical filtration and those that use active or chemical filtration. It depends on what you want to filter out of the water.
Water softening is the treatment of water to “remove” the hardness in water. This can be achieved by using different methods including lime softening, ion-exchange resins, nanofiltration or reverse osmosis.
Softened water has a lot of advantages over and above that it can taste better in the mouth. It requires less soap for the same cleaning effort, plumbing pipes tend to “live” their lifespan since scale build-up in pipes and fitting will be highly reduced.
However, softened water in which calcium and magnesium have been partly replaced by sodium is not suitable for irrigation use, as it tends to cause the development of alkali soils.
Due to a lot of water being used in the homes and industries there is also a lot of wastewater. If this wastewater is left unrecovered there would be adverse water shortage and also in most cases wastewater is a pollutant. This means it will pollute the environment.
The process of recycling water often called wastewater reuse or water reclamation is the act of converting wastewater into water that can be reused for other purposes. Reuse may include irrigation of gardens and agricultural fields or replenishing surface water and groundwater, fulfilling certain needs in residences (e.g. toilet flushing), businesses, and industry.
Where there is potential of high water shortage and technical know-how waste water can be recycled to meet drinking standards.
Shortcomings Of Prepared Water And Other Water Solutions
As demonstrated above municipal water came with its secondary problems. At the same time raw underground water that can be found also posed some problems like hard water, etc. The same with rain water especially in heavily industrialized areas where the atmosphere is full of toxic gases.
The solutions to reducing water shortage and making more cleaner water available came with its complications. Some of these complications were quick or easy to realize while some are not to the extent that there are debates around these less obvious complications. Some of these include the following;
Water is not just water, it has life supporting abilities which seem to diminish once it is subjected to modern day treatment and purification processes. This is one of the not so obvious problems.
Absence Of Friendly Bacteria
Fresh natural occurring water has aerobic bacteria which are life supporting. Municipal water treatment plants do their best to kill anaerobic bacteria with safe levels of chlorine or UV light. Since aerobic and anaerobic bacteria can co-exist the friendly bacteria ends up dying as well. This may also mean that the water has low levels or is depleted of oxygen.
Municpal water can still be scaly. Limescale is the hard chalky deposit that forms around a heating element when hard water is heated. It is commonly seen as white scum on boiling water, on the end of taps, in plumbing (pipes) and on the heating elements inside kettles and boilers. Once it has formed it is very hard to remove and requires the use of an acid descaler to dissolve it where possible.
Water may have an unpleasant smell due to chemicals added to it while treating it with chemical. These smells, like smell of chlorine or fluoride, are unpleasant and make use of this water undesirable. Addition of these chemicals is necessary; Fluoride helps reduce tooth decay while chlorine kills disinfects the water of harmful bacteria.
Best water for consumption should be around pH 7 (neutral) but gravitating towards the alkaline side. Typically municipal water has pH levels ranging between 6.5 and 8.5 and though this may be considered a safe range according to water standards the best water would very close to pH 7 or slightly alkaline. Alkaline water is most common as healthy water to drink!
Municipal water treatment systems use safe levels of chlorine and a related chemical, chloramine, as a disinfectant to kill bacteria and other microorganisms. Unfortunately, these compounds can then react with other naturally-occurring elements to form toxins called trihalomethanes. These THMs have been linked to a variety of health conditions.
