Most of us have by now heard of the health benefits live food can provide... but whatabout live water? Live spring water can be much more beneficial to us than most people would ever guess. In this article I will attempt to awaken your curiosity and begin explaining the benefits.
Water that is 'alive' is - simply - fresh, clean, organic, and unprocessed - i.e. natural drinking water in its purest form. This may include fresh spring water, bottled spring water, snow and ice, water in fresh fruits (e.g. live coconut water), rain water, morning dew, etc. All forms of the good-ol' H20.
Good quality live water avoids all the contaminants in tap water, e.g. copper and other metals leaching from the pipes, the bacteria and organisms that may be living in the pipes, contaminants that cannot be purified by water purification plants (such as estrogen), as well as added toxins, such as chloride and sometimes fluoride. In addition, if your tap water is hard it will have plenty of bad calcium in it, in the form of limescale. But much has been written about the dangers of tap water elsewhere, so I will not dwell deeper into this topic.
It is worth pointing out, however, that because tap water is essentially processed by various methods, it is not 'alive' anymore. Whether you believe in life force present in natural food and substances, or just consider the beneficial bacteria that may be lost, the 'dead' water is less beneficial to us.
To take a radical example of this, Masaru Emoto has famously claimed that water has "intelligence" and is able to carry messages, as well as react to our thoughts. In his book: 'Messages in Water' he demonstrated that both written and spoken words, as well as music, dramatically changed the crystalline structure of water when seen under a microscope.
But if you think about how complex life is, how little we know, and how essential water is to any known lifeform, it becomes quite believable that there is more to water than what meets the eye...
"It is extremely important to realize that water is a solvent. We can transport life into our bodies with living water - and with dead water we often transport death.
"The electronic communication between cells needs an alkaline environment, which balances out acidity."
- Hannu Kantola in a Finnish health magazine: Luontaisterveys
Much of tap and well water is too 'hard', i.e. acidic, Kantola continues to explain. In his view natural spring water is the best type of water, although it can be difficult to obtain for many people. He advices against more industrialized, pumped spring water. Even a couple of meters in a metal pipe destroys the geometry of the water, he explains. He personally uses a water filter he purchased from Berechtesgarden mineral baths in Germany for 110 euros. Live water is able to transmit energy vibrations, wave lengths and resonance. By contrast, an acidic diet interferes with the microcurrents of electricity in the body.
These are bold claims, but, even if half of it is true, it is well worth switching to drinking living water. My plan is to get a spring water delivery, although in plastic bottles. It will in any case be much better than 'dead' tap water.
Read on though, it gets wilder.
Ken Rohla (the author of BeyondRawFood.com) gives a very inspiring talk on his site, entitled: "How To Make Your Own Nutrient-Dense High ORMUS Probiotic Antioxidant Superfoods", where he discusses live spring water, from 1:00:18 onwards. He gives an account of the whole life-cycle of natural water, and how it gets prepared by various micro-organisms, elements, and plants to become optimally nourishing for us. It is a fascinating story.
Below are some key points, where he answers the question 'can you make tap water drinkable'. No wonder they call water 'the substance of life':
"You have to put water through a lot of different processes just to clean it chemically. You gotta filter it. [...] ... if you're doing distillation then you've gotta remineralize it.
"And, water is so complex, it goes through this hydrological cycle of the earth. It is extremely complex chemically and energetically.
"It evaporates, it goes up in the sky, it becomes energised by cosmic radiation, solar radiation, reflected solar radiation from the moon, the sound of nature... ideally... birds, you know, the animals in nature... comes back down, rains down across soil and plants.
"The plants are - they are antennae, they dip into the ground and they collect energies and frequencies from the earth and they reach up into the sky and collect energies from the cosmos and from the sun, and they are transferring energy between the two all the time and the water in them, also, is a homeopathic solution! So there is this incredible energetic and homeopathy in the water just at that point!
"Then it goes down into the soil and it passes through all of the microbes and micro-organisms living in the soil. And they are doing all these quantum processes, they've got probiotics - In healthy soil, you've got ormus-minerals, you've got regular minerals in rock-mineral form, you've got humus, you've got all this organic material, you've got worms and insects, you've got all of this life in the soil that is basically breaking the soil down into monoatomic and microclustered elements just a few atoms each and delivering it to the plants and the plants are uptaking it.
"And mushrooms and fungi [...] create a root system down in the soil that is like a massive network that also breaks down these minerals into mono-atomics and delivers it to the roots. [...] One of the worms' major functions in the soil is putting probiotics in the soil. You take a bunch of worms, throw them in a box with a bunch of compost, man, it's amazing how fast they turn it into dirt. They eat like crazy and their digestive tracts are massive probiotic generators. So they're going around through the soil, they're converting things, breaking all these things down - there's this quantum process going on in their guts - and they're fortifying it all with probiotics and then guess what probiotics do? They grow and grow and grow and grow, like a colonial bacteria that they are. [...] ... and [the worms] eat, eat, eat, eat and they break all this stuff down into mono-atomic elements and other microclustered nutrients that can get into the plants that can get into your body. [...]
"So the water's coming down through all that! [...] Then it's going down into the ocropher [?] and as it's going down through the soil it's picking up all these elements and these minerals that are heavy and they're, let's say, gravitational, as David Wolfe says, and they go down into the ocropher [?] and through that process of going through those living organisms in the soil, they pick up the mono-atomic elements and they get washed down into the aquifers [?]. And when they pick up the mono-atomic elements they become anti-gravitational or levitational.
"And they start being pulled toward the gravitational field of the sun. And they start trying to come up! And, typically, they come up through the path of least resistance, which is gonna be a spring. [...]
"What [Teruo Higa] figured out was [that] these microbes have all these quantum-processes going on and you can do some really interesting things with it. [...]
"... another thing that happens in the soil... All soil on earth, on the surface of the earth everywhere is covered with soil and rock, it's crystal. All soil is crystal. It can be large or it can be small chunks but it's all crystalline. And if you know about crystals, they have real energy in them. Not some kind of new-age-woo-energy, they have real electrical energy in them. [...] Crystals are resonators of energy, they are amplifiers of energy [...] ... it's quantum physics, and you can do real, practical things with it. There's tons and tons and tons of things being done with crystals in science.
"So nature's crystallography is in the soil! And these crystals pick up energy from the sun! They're picking up all kinds of photon-energy and turning it into all kinds of other energy, and then imparting it into the water that is flowing down through the soil and picking up the ormus [minerals]... [ ...]
"So if you think that you're gonna be able to take a filter and do these things to municipal tap water and fix up your water - you can't."
- Ken Rohla
Dr. Mona Harrison, the former director of the World Water Council, and a researcher at Johns Hopkins University, had a lot to say about the benefits of drinking living water, specifically, bioavailable water, which means that it is biologically available to our bodies. In other words, our bodies are able to utilise and benefit from the water.
Below are key points from three lectures by her:
"Transforming your DNA with Water"
Live water transports oxygen into your cells:
Healing powers of bioavailable water:
Physical qualities of good, healing water:
Not recommended water treatment methods:
Putting electrolytes into the water mechanically:
[You can add natural electrolytes [= electrically charged minerals] into water by using a little bit of sea salt, MSM, or citrus fruit juice in the water - this is called 'charged water'. I don't know if the machine is more powerful - it might be needed for some medical applications. The other word for charging water is 'structuring water', which David Wolfe speaks about in his book: Eating for Beauty. It makes the water more electrical and has apparently be shown in Kirlian photography as stronger lifeforce in the water.]
Living water can help with addictions:
Energetic frequencies in live spring water:
Electrical properties in live spring water:
Live spring water is effective against stubborn viruses:
Alkaline, live spring water is essential for mineral absorption:
Dr. Harrison had great results when she gave her patients Tahitian Noni Juice:

"Miracle Molecular Structure of Water: Human Body Loves Hexagonal Water" by Yang H Oh and Gil Ho Kim:
"The Miracle of Water" by Masaru Emamoto:
On the basis of all this research, I am inspired to start drinking live spring water as soon as possible! And although Dr. Harrison makes a point about spring water possibly being contaminated as well, I think at this stage it is such a huge improvement to the tap water I am drinking, that I feel very happy going with that.
I found a company in the UK who seem good: Cool Water Enterprises, and I can get a bi-weekly delivery of the minimum amount of bottles (2), without the water cooler. I will siphon the water out of the bottle and drink it at room temperature. This will cost me £6 + VAT per 18.9 litre bottle (4.2 gallons) and £1 + VAT delivery. (That is £15.60 every two weeks, which is $25.30 or €19.30).
My only possible worry is that the pH of their water is 8.1, and I wonder if that is too high (too alkaline). I have to do some more research on this.
If you're unable to find a clean spring close to where you live, and cannot get a water delivery, you can always buy spring water in a bottle. Check the background of the company, however, since some bottled water is just glorified tap water. Keep in mind, also, that bottled water from a shop is not ideal as it might have been sitting in the bottle for a very long time. The fresher, the better.
If you're forced to drink tap water (like I am, until I can afford the water delivery), get as good a filter as you can. Add lemon juice, natural salt or MSM into the water to 'charge' it.
Let the water 'breathe' in a glass container in the room, as the tap water - reacting with air - will release toxic chloride and take in oxygen from the air (you can see the bubbles collecting in the water). Brita filters help to some degree, as they can at least take out limescale (not a small improvement - read more here: Calcification).
Water filters that attach to your tap are in most cases better, and there are many levels of benefits you can get from them, all the way up to 'ionizing' showers, which are able to put back negative ions into your water. Consider also getting a good filter for your bath and shower, and look into putting minerals into your bath water or foot bath. Read, for example, on the benefits of magnesium baths in this article: "Cures for Moodiness".
Also, for some of the best living water, keep juicing organic greens, other vegetables and fruit!
If you live in clean nature (and not in a city like I) you can collect rain water and melt snow or ice for drinking. In a city this is unfortunately not possible because of the pollution in the air.
You can also look into refining salt out of sea water if you live by the sea. I recall having seen some You Tube videos on how to do this domestically. You might want to research bromine first, however, since this is supposedly a component in sea water which is toxic to humans (but not to dolphins for example).
I get asked quite a bit whether the calcium present in spring water is harmful. People want to drink spring water but some spring water forms a white film when boiling in a pot (evidence of calcium) and sometimes a mineral analysis of the water shows high calcium.
In the article linked to below I will attempt to answer this question, explaining different viewpoints by different nutritionists, doctors and researchers and presenting my own conclusions in the end. I will also discuss whether calcium supplementation is needed and whether calcium from supplements can be absorbed and utilised by the human body. The findings are compared to David Wolfe's theory of bad calcium and the dangers of calcification of the body.
Is Calcium in Spring Water Bad for You?
And if we wanted to, we could take this 'joy of living live' -ideology even further, by breathing live air. This would be fresh outdoor air, not processed by air conditioning, and richly oxygenated by plants or - the lungs of the earth - the oceans.
Benefits of Natural Salt
How fresh spring water together with natural rock salt form the very basis of good health, and how salt is needed to stay hydrated.
