Structuring and Destructuring Water—How is it Done?
Another open question is how you might de-structure water, which is what Dr. Pollack’s team is currently exploring. It’s unclear whether boiling, for example, can de-structure the water, or whether in fact it might help add structure… On the flip side is the question of how to reintroduce structure to water. I’ve often recommended two simple approaches to restructure water:
Cooling it to about 39 degrees Fahrenheit
Stirring the water with a spoon in a circular jar to create a vortex
Dr. Pollack agrees. Water cooled to around 39 degrees Fahrenheit, or about 10 degrees Centigrade, does increase structure.
“We’re studying the effects of temperature on the water structure that we see next to these hydrophilic surfaces,” Dr. Pollack says. “It does look as though when you reduce the temperature, this area of structure increases. In fact, we’re studying the possibility that the structured water is actually an intermediate between water and ice. It’s possible that the real structure of this structured water, if you will, is very much like ice—not quite, but almost.”
As for restructuring water by creating vortices, Viktor Schauberger is recognized as one of the leaders in this area. This technique is also used when making homeopathic remedies.
Dr. Pollack explains why this technique works:
“If you think of a vortex, what happens? Well, the vortex is a kind of mechanical perturbation or agitation. Probably it builds bubbles—little air bubbles that are deeply involved or enveloped into the vortex.
If these bubbles contain an envelope of structured water, then vortexing would be a very powerful way of increasing structure. So I think that is another way of increase. Both of those ideas: reducing the temperature and vortexing, probably do lead to increased water structure.”
Researchers have also investigated what happens to the structure of water when you run an electrical current through it.
“If you put a negative electrode right next to structured water, the structured region grows, but with a positive electrode it diminishes,” Dr. Pollack explains. “So this structured water is just filled with charge. It’s not free charge, its charges that are fixed at points in a very tight matrix–something like a semi-conductor. But it can build, and the source from which it builds is water, ordinary bulk water.
… So yeah, if you put an electrode in, it does work. It has a powerful effect… In the experiments we’ve done, it’s just a matter of 5-10 volts… We haven’t studied it in enough detail how much voltage you really need to put on to be effective. That needs to be done in the future. There are pilot experiments that we’ve done and we haven’t published them yet.”
