The Importance Of Drinking Alkaline Water

Monday, October 19, 2009  |  0 Comment

Victor Schauberger, a forester in the Austrian Mountains, discovered that water is a living entity that has truly remarkable powers as it emerges from high mountain springs. If it were allowed to run between cool shady banks of the original forest, it would remain energized and be able to enrich the whole of the watershed in which it flowed. Indeed, the whole ecology of the land and animals, including man, depends on this energized water. Schauberger showed that if the forest cover that shaded the banks of the water courses was logged and the water therefore became heated by the sun, the life-giving properties of primary water were gradually dissipated. The whole water cycle became disrupted; the fertility of the soil was depleted, and so was the health of all who drank the water.

Meanwhile, in France, Claude Vincent was commissioned by the French government to find out why certain areas of France had higher levels of cancer than others. Professor Vincent was a hydrologist. He therefore tested the water in these areas and confirmed independently what Schauberger and found. The areas that had a high level of health and a low incidence of cancer had water that came from deep artesian springs and was highly energized and alkaline. The converse was also true. The area that displayed the highest cancer incidence and overall mortality were shown to have low-energy, acidic water that came from more superficial sources; by flowing through open country it had lost its ability to sustain health in the ecosystem.

Vincent initially tested three parameters of water, blood, saliva, and urine:

1. pH or acid-alkaline balance: Healthy water was more alkaline; degraded water became more acidic. This was found long before the acid rain from industrial gases started to kill our lakes and rivers. Vincent also tested the pH of the blood, saliva, and urine and found that in poor health the internal water was more acidic, especially in the tissues. The more acidic the tissues became, the higher the risk of ill health and cancer.

2. rH2 was the second quality of water that Vincent measured. This is a measure of energy and reflects the number of electrons in the water. Unfortunately, energized water is called "reduced" water, and the energizing process called "reduction," because the early scientists believed that the current flowed from the positive electrode to the negative pole. We now know that it flows in the opposite direction, and it is the flow of electrons that does the work, whether in an electrical appliance, a battery, or in a human body. rH2 is also linked to the reduction/oxidation potential, called "redox" for short. Again, oxidation (or fermentation) means a loss of energy or electrons (or a gain of protons), and reduction means a gain in energy or electrons (or a loss of protons).

Vincent found that water became degraded or acidic by flowing through areas unprotected by trees or through distribution pipes. It became more oxidized or acidic and lost its electrons. This was associated with a higher death rate in the communities served by this oxidized or energy-depleted water. It was difficult to ignore that the quality of water being drunk on a daily basis was reflected in the diminished quality of health of those drinking it.

Other research on the Hunza people of northern Pakistan has indicated that the one major difference between the long-lived healthy people and their less healthy brothers and sisters is in the water they drink. Living in the mountains, they have access to glacial melt from rushing mountain streams. This water is very high in electrons, energy and minerals. It is also in "micro colloidal" form, which means that it has increased power to dissolve minerals and salts.

3. Resistance, or R, was the third parameter measured by Vincent. This refers to the amount of dissolved minerals in solution in the water. The higher the R factor, the more pure the water; the lower the R, the more electrolytes in the water. Schauberger showed that rainwater was immature water and needed to go through a "cycle" in the soil, where it would pick up nutrients and become mature. On the other hand, glacial melt contains many minerals in solution and appears to be one of the main reasons that the Hunza people live so long in such good health.

As Vincent started to measure the water compartments in the body, the correlation between the drinking water, the quality of water in the body, and the quality of health became undeniable. He developed the B.E.V., or the Biological Terrain Test. This test can evaluate the acid/alkaline balance and mycotoxic/oxidative stress in the body and can be used to predict the future of ones health. I have been evaluating live blood for over a decade and can now predict the future of ones health with one drop of blood.

Professor Vincent's solution was to move to an area of health-giving water, and he purposely withheld the location of the highest quality water that he found, for fear that everyone would want to move there and destroy the precious source of this water. There is, therefore, a need to be able to duplicate this highly energized and alkalized water in our homes if we wish to be healthy, as clearly we all cannot live on a mountain or near an energized spring

The fluids of the body are in balanced and fully healthy under the following conditions:

1) The pH of the extracellular fluids (the blood and lymph) to be fully healthy needs to be maintained at 7.365.

2) And the rH2 of the extracellualar fluids to be fully healthy needs to be maintained at a rH2 of 22.

So the most important question, I perceive, is how can we structure our water in an alkaline and energized state in order to maintain the integrity of the internal fluids of the body?

The first and most critical need is to correct the loss of electrons in the blood and lymph, which has been highlighted by my experience and research with the live and dried blood tests. The vital importance of the rH2 measurement to overall health is impossible to ignore. If blood is found to be oxidized by more than 2 units on the rH2 scale, this indicates that it has 100 times less electrons than the healthy level, and the person concerned will usually complain of some state of imbalance, like a loss of energy. If the rH2 rises 3 units or more, i.e., over 25 (indication 1,000 times less energy or electrons in the blood), then the client is usually suffering from chronic fatigue, with its debilitating low energy. These high levels of oxidation or fermentation are often associated with high levels of tissue acidity, indicating a generalized increase in aging of the tissues in the client.

Most all of the drinking waters that I have tested, whether from tap, reverse osmosis, or bottled spring water are highly oxidized. I mean highly oxidized, with rH2 values approaching 30 or 10 to the negative power of 8. This means 100 million less electrons or energy than should be in the blood of lymph. The body has to add this huge amount of electrons to bring this water up to the energy level of the blood, and yet promptly loses this energy again when it is passed out as urine.

The tap water in Salt Lake City, Utah, on an average, has a rH2 of 30. This means it has 10 to the 8th power less electrons or 100 million less electrons than the blood and lymph needs to be fully healthy at a rH2 of 22. To make matters worse, the urine is often loaded with electrons and can be as reduced as a rH2 of 19. This means the urine has 1,000 times more electrons than healthy blood and lymph. The total deficit being close to 10 billion electrons per liter of water drunk and urine passed. Clearly, the degraded acidic water that we are all drinking is acting as a huge drain on our energy reserves and compromises the context, setting up a state of imbalance or excess acidity leading to sickness and disease.
