A History of Medicine
2000 BC: Here, eat this root.
1000 AD: That root is heathen. Here, say this prayer.
1850 AD: That prayer is superstition. Here, drink this potion.
1940 AD: That potion is snake oil. Here, swallow this pill.
1985 AD: That pill is ineffective. Here, take this antibiotic.
2000 AD: That antibiotic doesn’t work anymore. Here, eat this root.
2010 AD: That root is contaminated. Here, practice, energy medicine. (Adapted from Qi-Gong newsletter, Hulse)
As a result of taking this class, participants will be able to:
- List the 4 phases of Water
- Understand the theoretical and scientific basis for “structured” water
- Discover the history of water research and its pitfalls
- Give a general description of “structured” water (ie, 4th phase)
- Describe the importance of “structured” water to health
Water. Essential to life, but how much do we understand it? Our bodies are comprised of 70% of this substance, but what role does it really play? Does water have a structure beyond vapor, ice, and liquid? The answer is a resounding YES. And this 4th phase may be the most important one in energy work of any kind. Does water have a memory? The findings from history and research may surprise you.
A Quest to Better Understand Water
“Water is not only important for our physical body, but is also responsible for our thought processes, feelings, and moods.” Dr. Barbara Hendel
The life and health of the planet and all of its life forms are dependent upon water for survival. In addition, it is the scientific consensus that all of Earth’s life forms originated from the primal seas, and interestingly, about 70% of the planet is covered in water. Water is able to penetrate through all of the cells in our bodies and helps allow communication between cell clusters. In addition, all of the main functions of an organism such as metabolism, digestion, circulation, and construction are regulated by water; water is the ultimate carrier of physical, mental, and energetic information.
In this course, you’ll learn about:
- Water’s Unique Behavior
- The Functions of Water in the Body
- Does Water Really Carry Memory?
- The cell as “semi-conductor”
- A New Theory of the Role of the Heart- Is It Really a Pump?
- Quartz Crystals & Water
Some Water Terminology
Water Molecule: two hydrogen atoms, one oxygen atom
Bulk Water: the standard collection of water molecules, whose arrangement is still debated.
Exclusion Zone: the unexpectedly large zone of water that forms next to many submersed materials. It got its name because it excludes practically everything. The EZ contains a lot of charge, and its character differs from that of bulk water and is sometimes referred to as water’s fourth phase.
Electron: an elementary unit of charge, it is negatively charged.
Proton: the other elementary unit of charge, is positively charged. These units play central roles in water’s behavior – more than you might think.
Water Molecule Charge: it is neutral. Oxygen has a charge of minus two, while each of the hydrogen atoms has a plus one charge.
Hydronium Ion: Protons latch onto water molecules to form hydronium ions. Imagine a positively charged water molecule and you’ve got a hydronium ion. Charged species like hydronium ions are highly mobile and can wreak much havoc.
Interfascial Battery: this battery comprises the exclusion zone and the bulk water zone beyond. The respective zones are oppositely charged, and the separation is sustained, as in an ordinary battery,
Honeycomb Sheet: the honeycomb sheet is the EZ’s unitary structure. Sheets stack parallel to the material surface to build the EZ.
Radiant Energy: radiant energy charges the battery. This energy comes from the sun and other radiant sources. The water absorbs these energies and uses them to charge the battery.
Ice: the atomic structure of ice closely resembles the atomic structure of the exclusion zone. This similarity is beyond coincidence; one transforms readily into the other.
Droplet: the water droplet consists of an EZ shell that envelops bulk water. The two components have opposite charges.
Bubble: the bubble is structured like the droplet, except that it has a gaseous interior. Commonly, that gas is water vapor.
Vesicle: since droplets and bubbles are similarly constructed, we introduce the generic label: vesicle. A vesicle can be a droplet or a bubble, depending on the phase of the water inside. When a droplet absorbs enough energy, it can become a bubble. (Pollock, xxii-xxv)
Structured Water: another term for the Exclusion Zone.
