Since I form kidney stones like some cats make kittens, my doctors encourage me to drink a lot of water – three liters a day. (Today, I couldn’t swallow the stuff, after binging yesterday.)
So. I paid particular attention to my latest COAST TO COAST AM newsletter –
In the first half of Thursday’s show, Professor of bioengineering the University of Washington, Gerald Pollack , discussed his research on the Vto help us understand secrets of nature and health. He and his colleagues at the Univ. of Washington laboratory have discovered that water is not always H2O. When interacting with many surfaces, water transforms itself into what is called Exclusion Zone (EZ) Water, also known as Structured Water or Fourth Phase Water. The energy that builds EZ water is light, so if you drink water that’s been exposed to light it probably has more energy, he explained, adding that he considers distilled water to be “dead water” with no energy.
Interestingly, he suggested that water can have a kind of memory, an “ordered phase” that stores information. This has been demonstrated in the experiments of Dr. Masuru Emoto and others, he noted. Pollack believes that Fourth Phase or specialized types of water hold out great promise to remove pathologies, and there has been some evidence to indicate this, such as in the studies of Dr. Batmanghelidj. There is also a fair amount of anecdotal evidence– the Hunza culture, for instance, is known for their longevity, and they drink fresh glacial melt water. But more and wider testing needs to be done, before specific recommendations can be made on water products, he said. “Certain types of water can be the wonder drug of the future– [with] no side effects,” he added.
