BELOW ARE THE FINDINGS FROM TOP WATER RESEARCHERS ABOUT STRUCTURED WATER
Dr. Mu Shik Jhon.
In 1986 Dr. Jhon presented his ‘Molecular Water Environment Theory’, which stated that ageing is a loss of hexagonal (i.e. structured) water from organs, cells, and tissues and that by replenishing the structured water in our bodies we can increase vitality, slow the aging process, and prevent disease. In 2004 this work was translated into English and published as ‘Water Puzzle and the Hexagonal Key’. He found that even though the source of the water is important, the structure of the water is the key. When Hexagonal Water replaces the unstructured water in the body, cell water turnover and cellular metabolism are enhanced – positively affecting many other functions.

Qualifications: Dr Mu Shik Jhon is the former professor at the University of Utah and the University of Virginia, former visiting professor at the University of Paris, Kyoto University in Japan, and the University of Florida). He also worked as a professor of Chemistry at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, where he served as the Director of the Center for Molecular Science and at the Korea Institute of Science and Technology as head of the Liquid State Chemistry Research Lab. Dr Jhon has published over 250 scientific papers and received 30 honors and awards, including the Grand Science Award and the Presidential Award of Science.
The Study: In 1986 Dr. Jhon presented his ‘Molecular Water Environment Theory’, which states that ageing is a loss of hexagonal (i.e. structured) water from organs, cells, and tissues and that by replenishing the structured water in our bodies we can increase vitality, slow the aging process, and prevent disease. In 2004 this work was translated into English and published as ‘Water Puzzle and the Hexagonal Key’. He found that even though the source of the water is important, the structure of the water is the key.
The best water for human consumption is Hexagonal Water. This water is characterised by a small cluster size (verified by Natural Action Technology) which penetrates the cells much faster, supplying nutrients and oxygen more efficiently then unstructured water. When Hexagonal Water replaces the unstructured water in the body, cell water turnover and cellular metabolism are enhanced – positively affecting many other functions. Dr. Jhon’s research focused primarily on hexagonally structured water, including the role of minerals, temperature, movement, and pressure on the structure of water. He was one of the first to discuss the difference in the structure of water surrounding healthy and diseased DNA, as well as one of the first to document that drinking more highly structured water could improve the functioning of the human body.
Dr. Konstantin Korotkov.
Dr Korotov’s research shows that water is the common element amongst all conscious beings (humans, dogs, cats plant etc). That every cell of our bodies is made of liquid. That water has a very significant role in behaviour and that water has memory and can accept, process and store information. He proposes that water may be the material carrier of consciousness. And that if people want to be healthy, they need to drink ‘good’ water. Dr Karotkov has developed a way of photographing energies of solids and solutions (GDV Bioelectrography) and this showed a significant difference between the energy of distilled water vs Structured Water.

Hacheney, a German Geophysicist, has found that Structured Water “improves the state of health of humans, animals, and plants. In certain cases, astonishing effects, especially with the very ill” and most excitingly, that Structured Water can detoxify the body – internally and externally and assist with headaches, toxic poisoning, normalisation of the liver and blood fat levels, dissolution of kidney and gallstones, dissolution of kidney and gallstones, neurodermatitis, psoriasis, acne and asthma.

Qualifications: Friedrich Hacheney is a German Geophysicist, teaching at the Universities of Innsbruck, Austria and Munster, Germany. He is the Director of Research at the Society for Organ-Physical Research in Detmold, Germany. His father Wilfried Hacheney was the first to introduce Levitated Water to Germany.
Study: The following excerpts are translations from Friedrich Hacheney’s book “Levitiertes Wasser”, which is only available in German. In the fall of 1989, a medically supervised test involving 55 subjects on a liquid cure was carried out. This was done in collaboration with the Bradford Institute in Germany.
“The accumulated experiences of people are very extensive and confirm that structured water, representing a high-quality drinking water, improves the state of health of humans, animals, and plants. In certain cases, astonishing effects, especially with the very ill, are reported, sometimes medically observed and documented. Let us review some points that should help in the understanding of the effects of structured water on human metabolism.
Water has many functions in the human organism:
- Maintenance of the colloidal state of the bodily fluids, especially of the blood
- Detoxifying the body through the carrying away of metabolic wastes, poisonous metabolic by-products as well as of invasive poisonous or metabolically damaging substances -Information exchange, and thereby the performance of control functions throughout the entire body
- Absorption of vital information from food
“This is one of the most important effects of Structured Water. As already mentioned, it can involve side effects, such as headaches, in a manner similar to the purification process. These symptoms disappear more or less quickly, depending on the individual. In serious cases of toxic poisoning, for example, resulting from the breathing in of solvent vapors, powerful symptoms arise after a glass of water. In such cases, one should increase the daily water intake slowly and take suitable medical advice.
Some doctors have successfully produced amalgams of structured water with homeopathic medications. A daily water intake of about three litres is recommended in such cases. Many observations of regular consumption of Structured Water can be explained in terms of detoxification the body, such as normalisation of the liver and blood fat levels.
The detoxification of the body through drinking Structured Water is accompanied by the dissolution of mineral deposits. In a way, many testimonials are known of the dissolution of kidney and gallstones following regular consumption of Structured Water. For diseases manifesting themselves predominantly on the skin, the internal and external (in poultices, compresses, irrigation and moistening of the affected parts) use of Structured Water has been found to be beneficial.
Positive results have been reported in cases of neurodermatitis, psoriasis, and acne, mostly in the context of alternative medicine. The sensitivity of the skin to sunlight also decreases, so that the effects of sunburn are checked spontaneously by the application of a poultice. With neurodermatitis, the ability to absorb food is improved. Reports have reached us to the effect that the alleviation of asthma symptoms have resulted in form inhalation of structured water. Structured water has an amelioration effect of inflammation, including those of the mouth. Bleeding of the gums is also reduced by regular rinsing with structured water along with the growth of tarter.”
Masaru Emoto was born in Yokohama, Japan, in July 1943. He is a graduate of the Yokohama Municipal University’s department of humanities and sciences with a focus on International Relations. In 1986 he established the IHM Corporation in Tokyo. In October of 1992, he received certification from the Open International University as a doctor of alternative medicine. Subsequently, he was introduced to the concept of micro cluster water in the U.S, and Magnetic Resonance Analysis technology. The quest thus began to discover the mystery of water.

He undertook extensive research of water around the planet, not so much as a scientific researcher, but more from the perspective of an original thinker. At length, he realized that it was in the frozen crystal form that water showed us its true nature. He continued with this experimentation and had written a variety of well-received books in Japanese as well as the seminal Message from Water, published bilingually. He also wrote The Hidden Messages in Water and The True Power of Water.
Question: Once a certain vibration is introduced to the water, how long does the water “remember” that crystalline structure?
Answer: “This will be different depending on the original structure of the water itself. Tap water will lose its memory quickly. We refer to the crystalline structure of water as “clusters.” The smaller the clusters, the longer the water will retain its memory. If there is too much space between the clusters, other information could easily infiltrate this space, making it hard for the clusters to hold the integrity of the information. Other micro-organisms could also enter this space. A tight bonding structure is best for maintaining the integrity of information.”
Dr. Emoto and Clayton M. Nolte inventor of Natural Action Technologies structured water devices were friends.
About 30 years ago, Masaru Emoto discovered a world of Hado and he published more than 10 titles about Hado in Japan. He treated more than 10,000 clients with a Hado measuring device and water and he helped to heal a lot of people who had a different kind of problems mentally and physically. He knew that water can memorize information then he came up with the water crystal photography to prove his theory and he succeeded. Water crystal photography tells that water reacts to any information (vibration) given by showing the different design.
He has gained worldwide acclaim through his groundbreaking research and discovery which were published in his books, “Messages from Water” and “The Hidden Messages in Water” and a lot of people resonated with his claim which is “water is deeply connected to our individual and collective consciousness.” then, he went out to the world to tell people the importance of human consciousness, truth of water, and principal of Hado. At some time, his mission was turned out to be “world peace” especially after his grandchildren were born. He believed that we will be able to achieve the world peace by understanding the truth of water because water is telling a lot of meaningful things.
Inventor of the Natural Action Technology (NAT) structured water devices. Clayton Nolte’ has spent his entire life engineering and reverse-engineering technologies that are truly “out of this world.” Clayton Nolte is a researcher and inspired inventor of life-transforming water structuring technologies (NAT Structured Water Conditioners). He spent the last forty years exploring physics, math and the properties of water, and the effects it has on life. He says: “Water in nature is the machine itself when it dances, spirals, tumbles knowing as vortexing creating structured water”.

Clayton has always been consumed with the infinite possibilities. As a young teen growing up on a farm in the Midwest, Clayton soloed his first airplane at 14, fuelled with a passion to get a higher perspective of how things work. Academically, he has 14 years of higher education specifically in math, physics, and chemistry. All of Clayton’s intellectual studies centered on asking questions and looking to the Universe for the answers.
Mr. Nolte spent the next 40 years in Research and Development, working as a consultant to various agencies. His assignments included traveling the world discovering new technologies and reverse engineering that would emulate nature and expose mysterious knowledge, thought of as unworldly.
During his research, a unique recurring phenomenon in water was discovered. Water was the only constant in almost every study and present in many places considered “impossible.” After years of studying this marvel, nature finally unveiled the true properties of Structured Water™. This understanding became the catalyst for Clayton to turn all his focus toward this fascinating phenomenon in nature.
Structured Water brings our complete physiology, brain, and body, into a grounding state connected to the Earth. There is a simple Applied Kinesiology test showing brain regulation. For the heavy metals, we have to go back to the realization that the Cells of one’s body cannot receive anything physical or electrical. So what does feed the Cells of one’s body is energy in the form of ions. So that being said, remember, Structuring energetically neutralises toxins, hydrocarbons, bacteria, viruses, moulds, etc. heavy metals being toxins or hydrocarbons.
It is Clayton’s vision and that of my own to make Structured Water™ available to every man, woman, and child in his lifetime. Clayton continues to share its discoveries, fuelling the possibilities of what you can do with the Natural Action Technology structured water devices.
When Edwin flew up to the USA to meet Clayton in person to fully comprehend how these ingenious structured water devices worked and why people, animals, and plants were doing better after being hydrated with structured water.
Clayton further explained that in his working days as a consultant for the United States Government. Clayton worked on top secret projects for the USA Army and had a lab at his disposal with a team of scientist and physicist worth over a billion dollars with unlimited research funds. It was Clayton’s job to study natural occurring phenomenon from all over the world, which included water, it was then he got intrigued and hooked to this incredible natural phenomenon called water.
Edwin spends a week at Clayton’s house in Arizona learning about Structured Water. He experienced Clayton to be a man of great insights, valuable knowledge and committed to helping people feel better and be healthier.
Dr. Gerald Pollack, University of Washington professor of bioengineering, has developed a theory of water that has been called revolutionary. He has spent the past decade convincing worldwide audiences that water is not actually a liquid. Dr. Pollack received his Ph.D. in biomedical engineering from the University of Pennsylvania in 1968. He then joined the University of Washington faculty and is now a professor of bioengineering.For years, Dr. Pollack had researched muscles and how they contract.
Please read on...
It struck him as odd that the most common ideas about muscle contraction did not involve water, despite the fact muscle tissue consists of 99 percent water molecules.
Water Research happens at Pollack Laboratories, which states, “Our orientation is rather fundamental — we are oriented toward uncovering some of nature’s most deeply held secrets, although applications interest us as well.” Uncovering nature’s secrets involving water is what Dr. Pollack, his staff, and students do best.
In his 2001 book, “Cells, Gels and the Engines of Life,” Dr. Pollack explains how the cell functions. Research suggests that much of the cell biology may be governed by a single unifying mechanism – the phase transition. Water is absolutely central to every function of the cell – whether it’s muscle contraction, cells dividing, or nerves conducting, etc.
This extraordinary book challenges many of the concepts that have been accepted in contemporary cell biology. The underlying premise of this book is that a cell’s cytoplasm is gel-like rather than an ordinary aqueous solution.
The key to Dr. Pollack’s entire hypothesis lies in the properties of water. The water molecules become structured in arrays or strata when they interact with charged surfaces such as those presented by proteins. The cell’s water is potentially structured. Water stays put in the cells because it’s absorbed into the protein surfaces. Structured water adheres to the proteins of the cells.
Structured water does not have the same properties as bulk water. Water is the carrier of the most important molecules of life, like proteins and DNA. In the book, “Cells, Gels and the Engines of Life,” evidence is presented that shows the water is absolutely essential to everything the cell does. The water in our cells is not like water in a glass. It’s actually ordered pretty much like a crystal. Like ice, it excludes particles and solutes as it forms. The space formed is called an exclusion zone (EZ).
Physicist and Professor Fritz-Albert Popp Professor Dr. Popp. Dr. Popp is a German physicist, who holds a degree in experimental physics from the University of Wurzburg, a Ph.D. in theoretical physics at the University of Mainz and a Professorship at Marburg University. He has conducted research that confirms the existence of biophotons in structured water. These particles of light, with no mass, transmit information within and between cells. His work shows that DNA in a living cell store and releases photons creating “biophotonic emissions” that may hold the key to illness and health.

Popp’s eight books and more than 150 scientific journal articles and studies address basic questions of theoretical physics, biology, complementary medicine and biophotons.
In 1996, Dr. Popp founded the International Institute of Biophysics in Neuss, Germany. This institute is a worldwide network of biologist, chemists, medical researchers, physicists and other scientists at 14 universities and governmental research institutes. In addition to his association with IIB, Dr. Popp is an invited member of the New York Academy of Sciences and an Invited Foreign Member of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences. He has also worked at Princeton University and served as an executive board member for the Center for Frontier Sciences at Temple University in Philadelphia.
Clayton Nolte received an email from Fritz Albert Popp’s office that they had done tests on the water that flowed through the structuring unit. He said that a device they use to measure bio-photons had confirmed said emissions in water that passed through the garden unit.
The study was titled, ‘Elektrolumineszenz vonWasser” which I take to mean “electro-luminescence on water.”
Dr. Popp became an Invited Member of the New York Academy of Sciences and an Invited Foreign Member of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences (RANS). Popp is the founder of the International Institute of Biophysics in Neuss (1996), Germany, an international network of 19 research groups from 13 countries involved in biophoton research and coherence systems in biology.
Viktor Schauberger (30 June 1885 Holzschlag (Austria) – 25 September 1958 Linz, (Austria)) was a forester, naturalist, and inventor. Founder of implosion technology. Schauberger studied the phenomena of the fluidic vortices. He insisted that nature uses the Falling Thermal Gradient for building and the Rising Thermal Gradient for deconstructing. He noted that our modern technology only uses the Rising Thermal Gradient for movement, and therefore meets immense resistance, friction.These observations eventually earned him the name of “The Water Wizard”.

He proved with his suction-turbines and other inventions, that by utilizing the Falling Thermal Gradient, it is possible to create 9x more energy than with a rising thermal gradient, and that the falling thermal gradient in the form of a motion to be used to enable suction, instead of facing friction.
Schauberger sought to develop energy-generating machines which, by the power of shape, form, and motion alone, were able to mimic nature’s processes. Whereas today’s main energy technologies use outward-moving explosions, such as fuel-burning and atom-splitting, his machines operated on the basis of inward-spiraling movements, or implosion
Schauberger pointed out that 20th-century technology moves everything the wrong way – exploding, heating, pressuring. His own inventions used nature’s quiet cooling, inward-spiraling suction motions instead, and the result rejuvenated instead of destroying.
“The true foundation of all culture is the knowledge and understanding of water.” — Viktor Schauberger
“Implosion is no invention in the conventional sense, but rather the renaissance of ancient knowledge lost over the course of time.” — Viktor Schauberger, Implosion Magazine, No.36, p.3
Dr. Wolfgang Ludwig, a biophysicist respected throughout the world, conducted numerous spectroscopic measurements to determine water quality. On the basis of a quantum theory he reached the conclusion: “Water has a memory like an elephant.” The results of his research and testing demonstrated unequivocally: “Water is an information carrier”; “Water is capable of storing information”; “Water stores information, once it has committed it to its memory, at the level of certain frequencies and can transfer this information to other systems/ organisms”.

In the book “Environmental Medicine” by Dr. Michael Treven and Peter P. Talkenberger, is an interview with the renowned German physicist Dr. Wolfgang Ludwig. Dr. Ludwig talks about water’s memory and water as an information carrier. Below are some informative and thought to provoke excerpts from the interview:
Question: “Dr. Ludwig, you have formulated the thesis stating that water has a memory like an elephant. What exactly does this statement refer to?”
Dr. Ludwig: “This statement refers to the following: water has the ability to transfer information, once it has obtained it, to other systems such as living organisms.”
Question: “Let us be very specific here. Water as an information carrier! What does that mean? To what degree of realization of this has the modern science of physics arrived to at this date?”
Dr. Ludwig: “What few humans know is the following fact: detrimental/poisonously charged/burdened water, as we have today in our wells and municipal water supplies, rivers, lakes, underground water, etc., is often polluted with substances such as lead, cadmium, nitrate and an impressive variety of other detrimental substances from households, agriculture and industry. All of this water can be chemically treated with the purpose of purifying the water and eliminating bacteria etc., but after the water treatment has “purified” the water as far as the “science of yesterday” is concerned, the water still carries certain electrical frequencies, oscillations in specific frequency bands (wavelengths). By further analyses, these can be tracked precisely to those detrimental substances which were detected in the water before treatment. Even after treatment and purification of water, it still contains certain unwanted signals from these poisonous substances which depending upon their wavelength can be destructive and/or injurious to our health.”
Question: “Well, does this mean that heavy-metal polluted water, after a thorough water treatment, will still transfer the heavy metal’s poisonous information to the human organism?”
Dr. Ludwig: “This is exactly what it means. Certain electromagnetic frequencies of heavy-metal polluted water have been found in cancer tissue as well. Let us take the frequency 1.8 hertz, which is a very low frequency. We have been able to confirm that fresh water in a certain major German city carries this 1.8 hertz frequency. Mind you, that water was distilled twice before this measurement! From this we can draw the following conclusion: After any cleansing, purification, chemical treatment, filtration or even after distillation, the pollutants’ harmful information – the electromagnetic frequencies/oscillations can be transferred to the human organism. They are there, measurably present in the water molecules both before and after any of the conventional treatments. So even when our fresh water is chemically purified it is still physically pollutant-information-charged both before and after any conventional treatment. It is not the chemical substance which affects the human organism when you drink this water, it is the undesirable frequencies.”
Dr. Ludwig continues: “Water which has once been exposed to pollutants is dead. Even the most intensive and modern sewage treatment facilities cannot revive it. It is energetically dead and it contains no useful information. Biologically valuable water must contain certain useful frequencies in order for the human organism to benefit from it. In spite of these facts, scientific research institutes are not even remotely aware of these phenomena and are not taking them into consideration. Not yet anyway! We must remember that the materialistic view of the world only deals with, let us assume, one billionth of reality. In the area of energetic reciprocal action or interaction between material and biological systems, there has until this day only been very limited research. The few results this avant-garde scientific research has found have, as strange as it sounds, been known by humans for thousands of years, especially by indigenous nations like Native Americans. In accordance with this, we know from geo-biology about places with a special force or power, where special plants grow, which do not grow in other places. Physical measurements have shown the existence of a lower level than normal of gamma radiation in these power-spots. But this is the only known parameter out of a wide spectrum of factors, of which we do not have any inkling yet. It would be an extreme violation of the truth if we were to claim, as a civilization, that our scientists have researched and explained all of Nature’s phenomena and wonders.”
Luc Antoine Montagnier is a French virologist and joint recipient of the 2008 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for his discovery of the human immunodeficiency virus. In 2009, Montagnier published a study entitled “Electromagnetic Signals Are Produced by Aqueous Nanostructures Derived from Bacterial DNA Sequences.” If its conclusions are true, it “would be the most significant experiments performed in the past 90 years, demanding a re-evaluation of the whole conceptual framework of modern chemistry.

A long-time researcher at the Pasteur Institute in Paris, France, he currently works as a full-time professor at Shanghai Jiaotong University in China. In 2009, Montagnier published two controversial research studies that some homeopaths claimed as support for homeopathy. Although Montagnier disputed any such support, many scientists greeted his claims with scorn and harsh criticism.
The 2008 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine was awarded to Montagnier and Francoise Barru-Sinoussi for the discovery of HIV. They shared the Prize with Harald zur Hausen, who discovered that human papilloma viruses can cause cervical cancer. Montagnier said he was “surprised” that Robert Gallo was not also recognized by the Nobel Committee: “It was important to prove that HIV was the cause of AIDS, and Gallo had a very important role in that. I’m very sorry for Robert Gallo.” According to Maria Masucci, a member of the Nobel Assembly, “there was no doubt as to who made the fundamental discoveries.”
Montagnier is the co-founder of the World Foundation for AIDS Research and Prevention and co-directs the Program for International Viral Collaboration. He is the founder and a former president of the Houston-based World Foundation for Medical Research and Prevention. He has received more than 20 major awards, including the Legion d’honneur (Commandeur in 1994; Grand Officier in 2009), the Lasker Award (1986), the Gairdner Award (1987), King Faisal Foundation International Prize (1993) (known as the Arab Nobel Prize), and the Prince of Asturias Award (2000). He is also a member of the Academie Nationale de Medicine

On June 20, 1988, his work made the headlines in the French daily Le Monde: “A French discovery shakes our concept of Physics”, which itself was taken from an article yet to appear in the very highly regarded British Scientific Magazine, “Nature”. Research led by the distinguished Dr. Benveniste had uncovered one of the main molecules responsible for asthma. Close consultant to Jean-Pierre Chevènement, French Minister for Research between 1981 and 1983, he worked on the discovery with 13 other biologists, both French and foreign. These 13 colleagues confirmed and co-signed the incredible experiment that he published under the title: “The degranulation of human basophils induced by high dilutions of an anti-IGE-antiserum.”
In other words, the researcher affirmed having been able to make a blood cell react with a totally diluted solution of water having contained an antibody. The biological information was transmitted despite the molecule’s absence. Hence Dr. Benveniste concluded, “Water has a memory”.
At this point, although his findings deeply shook the scientific world, instead of returning to a more orthodox path, he forged ahead. Changing his experimental protocol several times in order to give a better basis for his results, he was able to gradually propose an explanation for this phenomenon, which up until then had been elusive. He concluded that for each active molecule, there is a corresponding electromagnetic signal. Even when successive dilutions showed no presence of the molecule, the signal remained active. Thus he was able, year after year, against all odds, to reveal this “unexplainable” phenomenon – an even greater feat due to his modest means.
The effects of high dilutions have reproduced a total of 7 times in 6 international laboratories, completely independent of his own, as well as more than a thousand times in his own laboratory, which he even equipped with a robot to carry out the experiments without the need for human intervention. How many times must an experiment be carried out before a scientific fact is considered to be “reproducible”?
Controversies on the subject have always detected errors, artefacts, or untruths, but all of which were set straight within months. For the past 15 years, nothing has disproven Dr. Benveniste’s findings.
On the contrary, research was able to continue and benefit numerous scientific partnerships. Both the support from INSERM – which kept him in his position, then named him emeritus when he was to retire – and the support he received from the last two French Presidential teams, enabled him to continue his research.
Moreover, his entourage set up a company, DigiBio, founded in 1997, with powerful partners, which enabled him to continue to finance his research. A North-American firm has bought the non-exclusive rights to the company’s seven patents. One of these — dealing with wireless digital biology, i.e. recording and transmitting biological activity as “.wav” sound files — has been validated by the US Patents Office.
This became possible, after a series of blind experiments. An anticoagulant remedy was digitalized in San Diego by this process. The file/signal received at INSERM by electronic mail was transmitted to water, which in turn inhibited the coagulation in the same way the original molecule had. See www.digibio.com/video.
The purchase of these rights is a sign that a new approach, with a wide range of possible applications, is emerging in biology, for example, detectors of toxic or microbe pollutants, whether accidental or criminal, electro-magnetic virus antibodies, etc.
Those close to Jacques Benveniste are determined to support the research, which is being deployed throughout the world in digitalized biology.
Promoting his work will contribute to sustaining freedom in research, putting emphasis on fact as opposed to received ideas, which, while drawing human communities together, can also hold back major innovations.
