WATER – a response

WaterI had a request to write more on the topic “water as a medium” so I have spent a couple of days in research trying to find something to interest the person who asked.  I might not always agree with everything I find, but I do believe in information and that every-one makes their own decision in what to believe. Everything interests me and with time all my questions are usually answered. Nobody in the entire world has all the answers and I think that keeping an open mind is the way forward. I do not speak of religion ever, nor do I speak from religious belief. I speak of a global community, of humanity – whatever religious beliefs there might be. On a cellular level we are all the same. 🙂

“The cell is immortal. It is merely the fluid in which it floats which degenerates. Renew this fluid at intervals, give the cell something on which to feed and, so far as we know, the pulsation of life may go on forever…” When cells’ health is compromised because the fluid surrounding them is not conducive for life because of various causes including high acidity etc., they either mutate or die. Once the cell death rate exceeds the birth rate, any individual’s body experiences accelerated aging. Among the many factors that affect aging, diet is the most important, and the foundation of a good diet is water. The Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2003 was given to Peter Agre and Roderick MacKinnon for pioneering discoveries concerning water and ion channels of cells, the mechanism that explains how water flows from and into cells. These discoveries contributed to fundamental chemical knowledge of how cells function.” ( By Jaime Zaragoza, “Water for thought”) For the whole article, check out this link:

This, I believe, is the basic idea of water as a medium. Since water is the single most important life-keeping substance for us as living beings, wouldn’t it make sense that the quality of the water is important? We all know that we get sick, and even die, from polluted water. But what if the water is polluted in a different way? In a way that can’t be measured?….Yet. I have a friend who at one point started praying to her food and drink before she took it; her health improved immensely, she seemed to rejuvenate and grow younger, stronger and fitter. Of course the quality of her nutrition is the best, and she lives her life in accordance to health.

Considering that water is the single largest part of our bodies make-up, responsible for cellular communication and health, wouldn’t it make sense to believe that our thought-patterns integrate with our bodies? If we constantly think negatively about ourselves, are we poisoning ourselves? Returning to the photos of water crystals by Dr. Masaru Emoto:

Much discussion surrounds the work of Dr. Masuru Emoto. The scientific world – rightly – state that his work is not scientific, but also that it can not be refuted.

“As published on the website of the Institute of Noetic Sciences on May 25, 2004, Mr. Nash states that the team “did not find sufficient evidence to refute or accept Emoto’s hypothesis that thought influences water crystalformation.”


Quartz_CrystalCrystal water is often used to promote health; You place a crystal in a jug of spring- or filtered- water and leave it overnight. This will promote health to all living; yourself, your animals and your plants. I made an experiment many years ago; I divided a plant in two parts, planting them in separate pots and setting them side by side in a window. One of the plants was given crystal water, the other spring water from our private well. There was a clear difference in how quickly they healed and grew, the crystal-water plant being much stronger all along.

Homeopathy (Dr. Samuel Hahnemann 1796) is created on the principal of water as a medium.  The more you potentize (dilute) it, the more powerful it gets. (The idea of the smallest part of the body – the cell) Homeopathy has never been accepted by the scientific world, but stays to this day a much-used and constantly growing form of alternative medicine. In Germany homeopathic remedies are sold in pharmacies.

As I said before; I do not allow science alone to dictate what I should believe. I love science and I love when a belief becomes scientific fact. But belief is the key, the vital point that make things happen. Poor is the world without belief. And maybe, yes maybe, it is all make-believe…who cares? Why should that even be important – if it works?

FOOD

FruitVegWe need to take a look at how and what we are eating.  So many people are overweight and obese, have problems with; concentration, sleep, hormones, digestion, emotions…the list goes on forever. I have been watching this development for a long time and it took me some time to realize that much of it is connected to foods and eating-habits. “We are what we eat” doesn’t mean that we become pigs for eating pork, it is more about health and balance.
Our bodies have certain needs, and they are quite simple, in the old days all nutrients came naturally through our foods. Today much of our foods are either polluted or depleted of nutrients. Our bodies find ways to handle the toxins that come into our systems – to a certain point. When the amount of toxins becomes to large, the body slowly starts breaking down. And with body is included the brain = emotions, memory, hormones, concentration, learning…the list is vast. So much of the food people eat today is full of chemicals that are bad or outright dangerous. Much foods have no nutritious value at all. Many people don’t even know how to cook a simple meal.
Check out this video on additives in foodstuffs and tell me if you are prepared to feed this to yourself and your children.

Information on additives, toxins and depletion is becoming widely available as disease from unhealthy eating is growing rampant. Research has been and is being conducted to ascertain what nutrients we need to function  and what additives make us ill:

  • Essential fatty acids are vital for healthy brain-function and has been found to help combatting dyslexia, how interesting then, that the number of dyslectic children is rising in today’s society. Essential fatty acids are found in fish-oil and cold-pressed, unrefined vegetable oils. The vegetable oils you find in your local store, with the exception of good quality olive oil, are so refined as to be unfit for eating.
  • Vitamins and trace-elements (calcium, iron, magnesium etc) are found in most unrefined food-stuffs; vegetables, fruits, meat and dairy-products. Today most people suffer disease from vitamin and trace-element depletion. The levels of these vital nutrients are lower also in natural food-stuffs since the soil has been depleted.
  • Natural sugars are being replaced with “fake” sugars such as aspartam, sorbitol and others. Some are believed to induce cancer. Extensive studies are being done in this area.
  • Meat-producing animals are heavily medicated with antibiotics – not because they are ill, rather to “protect” them from illness. They are also given hormones for bigger meat-yield. Antibiotics and hormones are stored primarily in fatty tissue and also in muscle tissue (meat). When we eat the meat, we are also ingesting these antibiotics and hormones.
  • Fizzy soft drinks; the carbonic acid, which gives the fizziness, lowers the pH of the body. To balance that, calcium is excreted from the sceletal system, depleting the bones of calcium = osteoporosis. The number of children with osteoporosis has risen drastically. Osteoporosis is normally an old peoples disease and comes from low calcium-levels together with a sedentary life-style. Children need calcium and movement to grow healthy. Now they are drinking sodas (which are cheaper than milk) and sitting still.

The list goes on forever.

A whole new food-movement is gaining momentum in today’s society, especially in the USA; check out this article about one amazing mans work to change the wave of food-induced deterioration:
