“Live” and “dead” water

Myths and truths

We have heard different stories about living and dead water. In this article we will look at what can be considered as a true and what has no approvals based on scientific investigations. Everyone knows stories when with traditional medical methods healing is not reached in short time period, people look for ways to folk healers and sometimes they are treated with doubtful methods. Of course, there is a possibility that the remedies recommended by folk healers are effective, since the “placebo effect” is often found even in clinical trials. However, such “treatment” may not always help, as it delays the necessary therapy and contributes to the deterioration of health or impairing “clinical picture”.

Over the past two years, we have accumulated a lot of information on the subject of living and dead water. This article will be a kind of collection of mysterious methods and technologies. Let’s look for answers – why won’t Ivanushka become a little goat this time and why does living water not exist?

Myth #1. Alkaline water

Adding baking soda to water will not cure cancer or will not help you lose weight. Water with a pH level above 7 is considered alkaline, and water with a pH below 7 is considered acidic. Both the national sanitary standards and international water quality standards recommend a value of pH 6.5 – 8.5. Using the Google search engine, we get information about the following water extraction methods:

  • Adding soda and table salt to water in different amounts. Since there are no studies related to such solutions, according to calculations, the pH of the solution will be about 9.5 (the norm is 8.5) and the sodium concentration will be 6000 mg / l, which is 30 times higher than the maximum permissible concentration and that can be dangerous for people with cardiovascular disease.
  • Use of ionizers. The importance of the device is that it is capable of concentrating alkali and acid ions near opposite electrodes through electrolysis. A lot of research has been done, but they were mostly about metabolic disorders, including diabetes. Only one showed a small benefit from alkaline water, but because the study group was small, the study is considered as insignificant.

Perhaps the only proven benefits are its antacid properties, which relieve symptoms of high stomach acid and reduce heartburn. However, heartburn is the result of more serious gastrointestinal problems that are definitely not treated with soda.

You must have guessed by now that living water is alkaline, but dead water has an acidic environment.

Myth #2. Living water with a negative redox potential

Some publications on the web says that the redox potential of water determines whether water is alive or dead. In fact, redox or redox potential is a chemical indicator used in laboratories mainly to study solution processes, but not for drinking water.

There are no clinical studies on the properties and effects of using such water. Studies have not even been conducted on animals. These publications mainly mention how to obtain living water with a negative redox potential.

Myth #3. Rainwater – living water

Rain is water that has evaporated from reservoirs. It turns out that it is actually distilled during the evaporation process. If we lived in a society where there are no cars, thermal power plants, industry, then the water that goes down to the ground would be clean. In today’s world, especially in densely populated regions, air quality cannot always be considered clean, so when rain falls on the earth, its drops intensively absorb nitrogen and sulphur oxides, solid dioxin particles, ammonia, benzapyrene, phenol and other harmful industrial waste from the atmosphere. Of course, water collected above ecologically clean regions, where there are no industrial enterprises and large populated areas, will be cleaner.

Myth #4. Living water from natural sources

People tend to believe in the healing properties of spring water. Spring water and well water have several advantages: they are often already alive, because all the microflora of groundwater enters there, it contains nitrates, phosphates and other impurities. Precisely because of the amount of these impurities, it is also a favourable environment for bacteria to multiply. Spring and well water must be boiled to make it safe for consumption. However, if you have a well or spring that you are not ready to give up, it would be inadvisable to conduct chemical and bacteriological analyses of the water at least once a year.

Myth #5. Living water with stones

It really is the easiest way to “revive the water”. The point is to throw some kind of stone into the water and wait. The most popular minerals are shungite and silicon, which are insoluble in water and have no absorption properties – they cannot add or subtract anything to water.

But if you want to know how to make living water, this is the best method. It is necessary to take water from a spring or a well (if there is none, tap water is also suitable), throw the same stones into it, put it in a warm place and wait… After about a week, you can see life – green fouling and algae that will have grown in the container from the inside.

Myth #6. Living water from corals

Calcium and magnesium are macronutrients that play a crucial role in the functioning of human body systems. Humans get them mainly from food, as well as from drinking water. One relatively new trend is coral calcium, where coral reef debris is ground into powder and mixed with ascorbic acid. When this mixture is added to water, it dissolves and forms a mineral-rich drink.

In fact, it is more like dead water, because the extraction and transportation of coral limestone is harmful to the environment and has no advantages compared to the classic calcium and magnesium preparations.

Myth #7. Living water with oxygen

The air around us consists of many components – the main ones are nitrogen, oxygen and carbon dioxide. With each breath of the lungs, air enters the blood. A few years ago, a manufacturer decided that breathing with lungs was out of fashion and started producing oxygenated water. Apparently for belly breathing. However, the stomach is intended for other purposes and in the research process no positive results have been obtained with using oxygenated water.

In the case of hydrogen water, things are a little more interesting, since it still has antioxidant properties.

Myth #8. Warm water can help you lose weight and cure diabetes

Neither warm nor cold water has any particular effect on the metabolism. However, if you haven’t drunk your daily dose of water, then two glasses of warm water will be quite a good addition to the total amount of fluids.

Myth #9. Living water by freezing

Another direction in the field of water revitalization is related to its freezing. For example, water purification by freezing as recommended by Doctor Ivan Neumivakin sounds unsafe to us. Yes, freezing will help you purify water from various salts, the only question is, why spend a huge amount of time and resources on it, when in today’s world you can get clean water anyway?

As for obtaining structured water by freezing, there is no justification for that either. The clusters exist as long as the water is frozen, but as soon as it melts, they change immediately. So if you want to use structured living water, you have to swallow ice.

Myth #10. Silver water heals

There are many historical references to water purification with silver. But science does not stand still, and the modern world has long had technologies with higher efficiency. Silver is a heavy metal and in both ionic and colloidal forms it can accumulate in the body and cause a specific skin lesion called argyria.

We at Ecosoft do not promise that the water obtained from our filters will be alive, because, you guessed it, there is no such thing. But our filters can ensure its purity, chemical and bacteriological safety and excellent taste.
