Activated water

Writes: Negica Popovic

Several decades ago, scientific institutions of the USA, Japan and the Russian Federation intensively researched the procedures of “activating” water, which means mechanical, electrical or optical processes that change the physical or chemical characteristics of water. Water with such a changed structure is much better absorbed in the body. It can be used by plants, animals and people, and its application in industry, medicine and agriculture has given amazing results.

Water is a basic component of the human body and as such the basis of the functioning of the human body. The latest research indicates that it is necessary to take 2.5 – 3.5 liters of “pure” water a day into the body, in order to preserve vital functions. Water is the basic solvent that regulates all the functions of our body, including the activity of all solid substances that are dissolved in it. Chronic dehydration is considered to be the main cause of most degenerative diseases of the human body (hypertension, ulcers, allergies, arthritis …). Coffee, tea, alcohol and artificial drinks, which very often replace water, are a catastrophic mistake because, in addition to the water they are ingested with, they expel even more water from the body’s reserves and thus accelerate dehydration.

The healing effects of the healing waters of numerous springs and spas have been well known since ancient times and have been translated into folklore as the story of “living” water.

Procedures for obtaining “structured” water

Several decades ago, in the scientific institutions of the USA, Japan and the Russian Federation, the procedures of “activation” of water are intensively researched. The term “activated” or “structured” water refers to mechanical, electrical or optical processes that change the physical or chemical characteristics of water. Structured water can be produced using an RF (radio frequency) electromagnetic field, micro and far infrared waves, or an electrolysis process. Numerous researchers have shown that, among other things, water treated by some of these procedures has an altered structure of molecular clusters (large clusters are fragmented), which greatly facilitates the process of cellular hydration. Water with an altered structure, ie reduced clusters, enables better water absorption in the body. This water can be used by plants, animals and humans, and the effects are reproducible and measurable. The application of activated water in industry, medicine and agriculture has given astonishing results.

Most information about activated water comes from the former Soviet Union. Namely, in the seventies, a group of scientists led by prof. S. Alekhine, at the Gas Research Institute in Tashkent, was given the task of finding a new composition of the emulsion for deep wells, which would keep the clay in suspension. Their idea was to use electrolyzed alkaline water (rich in hydroxyl ions) to make the emulsion. Well workers, coming into contact with alkaline water, noticed its healing effect on wounds and skin injuries. They drew the attention of a group of scientists who began more detailed research. They very quickly noticed the stimulating effect of alkaline and bactericidal effect of acidic water. These inventions could be read for the first time in the journal “Inventor and Rationalizer” (No. 2, 9, 1981). Their scientists have filed hundreds of patent applications since then

Wide range of operation

The advantages of using electrolytically activated water are a wide range of action and safety for people and the environment, which allows application in open and closed space.

Electrolysis of water (pH = 7) gives two types of activated water. Anodic, oxidized or acidic water (pH <7) is an effective, environmentally friendly bactericidal agent. Accelerates wound healing, slows down biological processes in the body, lowers blood pressure, calms nerves, acts as a solvent and reduces deposits and pain in the joints of the hands and feet, dissolves tartar on the teeth, stops bleeding gums, relieves insect bites, nourishes hair. maintains skin moisture, acts as an astringent, is excellent for treating acne and eczema, treats fungus in athletic feet …

Cathodic, reduced or alkaline water (pH> 7) has a soft taste, is an excellent tonic and stimulator. Accelerates bioprocesses in the body, increases blood pressure, accelerates metabolism, improves appetite, provides energy, accelerates wound healing …

Japan annually produces 100,000 appliances for obtaining activated water in households. Keishi Matsumura from the Japanese Gohoku Institute of Agriculture reported that electrolyzed water is used on farms in Japan to prevent bacterial and fungal diseases of fruits and vegetables, which greatly limits the use of pesticides and fungicides. The Japanese government is trying to reduce the use of various chemicals in agriculture by 80% on an annual basis, which in the long run would lead not only to exceptional economic effects but also environmental ones because the poisoning of the land would be significantly reduced.

It is especially interesting to state that American scientists started using electrolyzed water in Japan in the 1960s, and that they only found out about it in the last decade due to the language barrier. In the USA, the Russian Federation, Israel, Austria, Germany and other European countries, electrolyzed water appeared on the market only in the 1990s. The Center for Food Quality and Safety of the University of Georgia (USA) has published results showing that the use of electrolyzed water for meat disinfection, food preparation utensils and fresh vegetables (E. coli, Salmonella, Campylobacter) gives better results compared to conventional means such as chlorine solution. The Department of Plant Pathology of the same university published the results of the treatment of leaf diseases such as Botrytis cinerea and 25 other species of fungi and molds. The use of anolytes and catholites as a preventive measure in the protection of plants from leaf fungal diseases is especially suggested.

Domestic research

In our country, this issue is studied at the IHIS Institute in Zemun, where they started working intensively on the issue of activated waters only in 2002, but with many years of experience in relevant fields of science, which are necessary to be able to enter their own development. In addition to water treatment, research is focused on the development of environmental disinfectants intended primarily for medical institutions, schools and the food industry. Some interested researchers (Institute for Plant Protection) are currently involved in this research, however, they are already working on organizing far broader research that will represent a shift in the country towards the production of healthy food and preserving the health of the entire population.

Interesting facts about water in the human body

It is known that the body of a newborn contains about 87% of water (H2O) of the total body weight. The body of an adult child contains about 70%, a young person about 60%, while the body of an 80-year-old person contains only about 50% water. Thus, the cellular water content continuously decreases during life.

It is also known that in the process of respiration, which could be called “dehydrogenation of the substrate by oxygen”, cell water is spent continuously on the production of positive hydrogen ions, ie. protons (H +).

P. Mitchel won the Nobel Prize in 1978 for proving that positively charged hydrogen ions (H +) play a major role in the synthesis of ATP (adenosine triphosphate) which is the basic energy transporter and therefore necessary for maintaining the vital functions of our body.

In 1992, a Russian doctor and researcher, Dr. Vladimir Volkov, claimed that the main cause of disease and aging was the constant depletion of hydrogen ion (H +) stores in the human body. Protons (H +) have an irreplaceable role to neutralize free radicals, form chemismotic potential on mitochondrial membranes and initiate ATP production, monitor electrons in the respiratory chain, form water by uniting with active oxygen in the respiratory chain, perform protective antioxidant function together with minerals and vitamins. participants in photosynthesis are irreplaceable …

How is our body supplied with the necessary hydrogen? The body takes it mainly from food or, most often, from cellular water.

We lose approximately 2 – 2.5 l of water per day. If we do not compensate for this loss, the body fights chronic dehydration by taking hydrogen from the products of its own vital activities, such as lactic acid, amino acids, hemoglobin … These processes, however, at the same time cause new diseases because salt deposition and stone formation in muscles, heart, brain … (not only in bile and kidneys).

The decline in cell water content, due to hydrogen depletion, leads to the folding of cells that gradually lose function, and connective tissue grows in place of lost cells. This process is called sclerosis. The collection of cell membranes leads to difficult transport of blood through the organs, which results in an increase in blood pressure and difficult transport of hormones and other vital substances.

Decreased central nervous system function leads to neuroreflex blockade of certain organs. Sclerotic and neuroreflex blockade of organs are aimed at preserving the necessary water reserves in the body and trying to use various products of vital activity as sources of hydrogen, which has tragic consequences, ie. the onset of the disease. This practically means that all diseases occur as a consequence of the lack of water that is used for the production of protons.

During the aging process, the supply of hydrogen, which protects us from free radicals, decreases. The beneficial effects of antioxidants such as vitamin C, lactic acid, hemoglobin acid, amino acids, fatty acids, plant acids, all endogenous acids of our body and exogenous acids from food have been proven. Dr. Volkov’s research indicates hydrogen as the main antioxidant.

According to Dr. Volkov, the common denominator of almost all diseases is an increase in acidity in the body, ie. increase in H + ion concentration. In this way, the body replenishes the depleted reserves of hydrogen in the body. This is a natural and necessary prerequisite for healing. There is no healing without hydrogen, that is. without protons (H +).

Because hydrogen bonds act as “glue,” holding molecules in a double helix of DNA, those bonds can be activated and energized. It is known that in the process of our aging, the twisting of the spiral becomes tighter and tighter, so that it loses its flexibility and elasticity. There is a hypothesis that compression and twisting of the DNA helix may reduce the possible number of cell divisions. Our cells can divide a limited number of times and then their reproduction process stops.

By allowing the DNA helix to twist by activating hydrogen bonds in the DNA molecule, the ability of cells in our body to be affected could be affected. As the DNA helix is ​​located in the water environment, the compression of the helix can be a consequence of emptying the hydrogen reservoir in the body. Re-establishing the hydrogen supply can result in the natural unwinding of the DNA helix and the re-establishment of the ability to stimulate the cell reproduction process.
