Not that long ago, it was rare to see the term “structured water” or hear about the health benefits of structured water. But what is structured water and why do doctors say structured water is best for hydration?
Forward-thinking medical doctors, scientists and thought leaders are actively engaging in conversations about the healthiest water to drink – structured water, also known as H3O2, EZ water, and gel water – an energized water for its optimal intra-cellular hydration properties.
What is Structured Water?
Structured water is a form of water between liquid, vapor, and solid. It is found in Nature in rivers, streams, and springs. The molecules of structured water are organized to form H3O2, an organized molecular structure that creates and holds more charge than H2O molecules, thus, it has more energy available to your cells.
Are you wondering how this works? See what the scientists say about structured water.
When structured water is made with a structuring device, it changes the states of the molecules to form an organized, energized form of water. You can learn more about structured water devices like the AQUA ENERGIZER™ and how they work here.
The Health Benefits of Structured Water
Because of this increased energy, the health benefits of structured water are not as much about the volume of the water that you drink, but the energetic state of the water. And a constantly growing number of research studies have documented the health benefits of structured water. Proper hydration is becoming a common topic as a first intervention against chronic headaches, depression, weight gain, fatigue, insomnia, auto-immune disorders, gut pain, blood pressure and heart disease.
You may wonder why you haven’t heard much about structured water if it’s the solution for a wide variety of health problems. Chronic, low-grade dehydration is a consistently overlooked public health epidemic in the United States. Your doctor or health care practitioner should look at your blood hydration level before they make any judgements about your blood markers. Why? If you’re not properly hydrated when you get a blood test, all of your numbers will be skewed.
Why Your Doctor May Not Know About Structured Water
It might seem like doctors would embrace a simple, hydration solution, like learning about structured water and teaching their patients the benefit of it. However, new scientific knowledge is adopted in incremental paradigm shifts rather than in a linear and continuous way. This was discovered by Thomas Kuhn, a philosopher that studied how scientific knowledge changes over time.
What this means to you, is that your doctor could be presented with information about the benefits of structured water, but he’s unlikely to say “Great, let’s try that!” He’s going to have to hear about structured water at conferences, read about structured water in medical journals and hear about structured water from colleagues and patients. But don’t be discouraged because using and benefitting from structured water doesn’t require your doctor’s permission, it’s just water!
Plus, there are doctors that have seen the benefit of structured water and are getting the word out to the public, medical and scientific communities. So, it is becoming more popular as more doctors say structured water is best for hydration and see for themselves the benefits.
Gina Bria, Founder of the Hydration Foundation
Throughout history, geniuses and forward-thinking professionals have been labeled “crazy” for what they thought or what they did. Until everyone got what Amazon was doing, Jeff Bezos seemed like a mad man. Luckily, there are some prominent doctors and scientists that have seen the benefits of structured water and have been willing to lead the conversation for the public and their peers. You can read about them below, but first, Gina Bria.
Gina Bria is an anthropologist and the founder of the Hydration Foundation and the Hydration Summit. She’s also the author of Quench: Beat Fatigue, Drop Weight and Heal Your Body through the New Science of Optimum Hydration. In her book, Bria debunks popular myths about “getting enough water.” In her book she offers a simple, but revolutionary five-day jump start plan to see results from better hydration almost immediately.
What sets Ms. Bria apart from the doctors listed below is that she is a cultural anthropologist that has been researching food and rituals for more than two decades. She has an impressive list of partnerships with well-respected academic and medical institutions.
Given that anthropology is the study of what makes us human, Ms. Bria’s work is essentially a mission, to educate humanity about what water actually means to life. She could spend her time doing a lot of different things, but she has answered a calling to present a simple solution to complicated medical conditions that not many people are talking about.
