Water therapies

Ionized-Alkaline Water

Alkaline water is water with pH > 7, which is usually filled with “Electrons”, and considered as “Anti-oxidant water”. “Ionized-alkaline water”, also known as “Electrolyzed-reduced water”, is a water that has been treated by an electric current (Electrolysis), decomposing parts of its molecules into hydroxyl molecules (OH) and active hydrogen (H), producing a water with high pH values

The term “Active hydrogen” refers to neutral hydrogen atoms existed alone. In contrast, “Ionic hydrogen(H+) is highly acidic. Active hydrogen, on the other hand, is unstable and tend to bind to other molecules, such as oxygen in the form of  reactive oxygen species (ROS) or free radicals to form water (Neutralizing their effect); thus, working as a powerful antioxidant

The abundance of active hydrogen molecules (free electrons) is what gives the water its alkalinity properties. The ability of a solution to reduce oxidation is measured by the “Oxidation Reduction Potential” (ORP)

Alkaline-reduced water is NOT the same as alkaline water. No health benefits are known in ingesting alkaline water, and it can stress the kidneys; however, ionized-alkaline water is proven to work as an antioxidant; moreover, it has been proved clinically to kill leukemic cells, helps in normalizing blood sugar, and helps slow the growth of cancer cells via inhibiting angiogenesis

Another important characteristic of alkaline-ionized water, other than the alkaline and antioxidant properties, is that its water molecule clusters are smaller (4-6) than tap water (12-16). This makes alkaline water more absorbable and more available in the extracellular fluid than normal tap water

Ozonated Water

Ozone is a toxic gas composed of triple oxygen atoms (O3), and it is soluble in water and oils. It’s solubility in pure water occurs according to Henry’s law (1803), which states that: “The saturation concentration of a gas in water is proportional to its pressure, concentration and temperature”. After 5 minutes of ozone gas bubbling in water, the ozone concentration reaches up to 25% of the concentration of ozone gas applied to the water

In body fluids, specifically the plasma, ozone “reacts immediately” with a number of ions and biomolecules within the plasma such as: antioxidants, proteins, carbohydrates and, preferentially, polyunsaturated fatty acids (Arachidonic acid) bound to albumin. This will result in the formation of:

a) Reactive oxygen species (ROS): this occurs in the early phase of ozone reaction in body fluids, and it will be neutralized by the sulphydryl (SH-) group of glutathione in the red blood cells and the antioxidants found in the plasma. The reactive species developed will react as a “Homotoxin” in a small concentration that do NOT hurt the body, but evoke “Mildly-calculated oxidative stress”, which will enhance the work of: Erythrocytes (Improve O2 delivery), Leucocytes (Immune activation), and Platelets (Release growth factors)

b) Lipid oxidation products (LOPs): this occurs in the early phase of ozone reaction in body fluids with the polyunsaturated fatty acids. The LOPs will affect: Endothelium (Increase release of nitric oxide), Bone marrow (Release of stem cells and generating super-gifted erytherocytes), and other organs (Up-regulating antioxidant enzymes).

The effect of LOPs will cause vasodilation of tissues, antioxidants enzymes up-regulation and synthesis, and increase tissue oxygenation. Only LOPs are responsible for the biological and therapeutic effects of ozone therapy; the ROS are neutralized within seconds by the antioxidants in the plasma, and the oxidized cofactors (e.g., NADPH), will be restored within 15-20 minutes after ozone administration

The ozone effect has a threshold; the homotoxic therapeutic effect of ozone is seen. If the threshold is less, no effect and if it is higher, tissue injury occurs

A big misconception present that since ozone creates ROS in the body, it means it is as harmful as the ROS created by the body; this is a big false statement. ROS created in the body arise from the mitochondria in every second “Inside” the cells, whereas ozone therapy is a momentarily effect (< 20 minutes) that take place within the plasma “Outside” the cells, with the abundance of antioxidants surrounding it. Mitochondrial ROS are “Constant” oxidative stress, whereas ozone ROS are “Temporarily” oxidative stress

Ozonated water is used as the 4th pillar in Bob Beck’s anti-cancer therapy  

Hexagonal Water

Hexagonal water is a term used to describe grouping of water molecules into a crystalline group of 6 joining molecule forming a “Hexagone”, which are held together by “Hydrogen bonds”, existing only in solid (Ice) state. Most tap water and bottled water is composed of large water conglomerates which are too large to move freely into the cells. It must be re-structured within the body to penetrate the cells (a time-consuming and energy-consuming process)

Water molecules find stability by joining hands in groups of varying sizes – the most natural and stable of which are groupings of 5 (Pentagonal) and 6 and (Hexagonal) rings. Water molecules that are formed into groupings (predominated by pentagonal and hexagonal rings) are joined together into larger groups via hydrogen bonding

Hexagonal Water has a greater capacity to perform work, to accelerate metabolic processes, to penetrate cell wall, to expel wastes, to absorb temperature changes and to protect against various other energetic influences. Replenish the hexagonal water in human bodies can increase vitality, slow aging process, and prevent diseases (The Molecular Water Environment Theory; Dr. Mu Shik Jhon; 1986). Super-cooled, 100% hexagonally-structured water has a huge capacity to store energy which can be released immediately when it is utilized by living matter

Water surrounds ions and proteins (e.g., enzymes) in a series of layers, called “Hydration layers”. Healthy proteins are surrounded by hexagonal water, while cancer-causing and diabetic proteins are surrounded by pentagonal water. Blood plasma is 90% water and 7% protein - yet for every protein there is an average of 70,000 water molecules which immediately surround it in a hydration layer one molecule deep. Metaphorically speaking, these water molecules act as servants to the larger protein molecules and they participate in a number of ways, structurally supporting the folds and bends which facilitate their function and protecting them from outside disturbances

The greater the amount of structured, hexagonal water in the body, the healthier an individual is and it is not likely that disease will invade the healthy body. Once again, an important key to health is the amount of hexagonally-structured water we have in our bodies

Stress changes Hexagonal Water (harmonious with biological systems) into pentagonal water, which is not recommended for the human body

Magnetized Water

The application of pulsed or static magnetic fields causes the water to arrange in hexagonal pattern. Water has a paramagnetic property because it can hold a magnetic charge. Physics shows that water change weight under the influence of magnetic fields. More hydroxyl (OH-) ions are created to form alkaline molecules, and reduce acidity. Normal water has a pH level of about 7, whereas magnetized water can reach pH of 9.2 following the exposure to a 7000 gauss (G) strength magnet for a long period of time (e.g., up to 24 hours)

Magnetized water was first used in Russia by three specialists: Drs. G. Gerbenshchikow, I. Shetsov and K. Tovstoles, all three specialists in urology at the Kirov Military Medical Academy in Leningrad; they used it as a treatment in for kidney stones, and they found that this simple treatment was very effective in breaking up kidney and gall bladder stones into small enough particles to be passed through urine without any pain or danger to the patient. The water also prevented further formation of stones in the kidneys and gallbladder

Magnetizing water reduces the surface tension of water making it feel softer. It is thinner, wetter, and more absorbable, so it is better able to penetrate cell walls and deliver the nutrients that it carries. Because magnetized water is wetter and therefore more penetrating, it is great for detoxification and cleansing the extracellular fluid. Similarly to the way magnetized water dissolves the settled salts on the wall of boilers and radiators, so it has been reported to help unclog the arteries and veins of deposits of cholesterol and salts and normalize the circulatory system

Ionized-Acidic Water

Acidic electrolyzed water (AEW) is water prepared through electrolysis that has a pH of 3 or less, and Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) > 1100 mV. The acidic nature comes from the formation of “Sodium hypochlorous acid” (NaOCl), which works as a weak acid. Hypochlorous acid is naturally produced in the body in poly-morpho-nucleocytes (WBCs) via the action of myeloperoxidase in the presence of Cl- and I- ions, and it has a bactericidal effect 

AEW has an anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties; it is used for topical immersion, NOT for ingestion or deep tissues, since its bactericidal effect is rapidly lost when it is exposed to organic materials, including living tissues

Double-Helix Water

Double helix water (DHW) is 100% pure water containing large concentration of stable water clustered in a double helix pattern. This water structurally has a very short distance between the atoms of the H2O molecules (What makes solid, gas, and liquid states of water is the distance between the hydrogen and oxygen bonds)

Some clinical studies showed that stable clustered double helix water helps the expressions of some genes, which facilitates cell-to-cell communication. Other studies showed that drinking water that contains double helix water 4 times a day for 45 days showed significant increase in interferon-γ concentration in the blood (Immune boosting effect)
