You’re probably well aware that most people think of the formula for water as H20, but did you know there is a fourth phase of water beyond liquid, solid and vapor and that is most commonly expressed with the formula H3O2?  This H3O2 or 4th phase of water is known by many names including structured water, EZ water, gel water and vortexed water and it is known for its ability to store and release energy. 

There is still much to explore when understanding the mysteries of structured water, nonetheless, our understanding has expanded substantially thanks to early structured water pioneers. 

Although many science circles do not accept the idea of structured water, Viktor Schauberger has proven the presence of structure and energy in water through his studies of how water interacts with the natural world. Schauberger’s desire to live in harmony with nature and unlock the mystery of the energy of water inspired modern structured water scientists such as Dr. Masaru Emoto, Dr. Jerry Pollack, and Dr. Marcel Vogel.

Viktor Schauberger

"Water is the life-blood of the earth. When water is healthy it has a complex structure that enables it to communicate information, carry energy, nutrients and healing, to self-cleanse and discharge wastes."

Viktor Schauberger

Viktor Schauberger was one of the early visionaries of the science of structured water. He was an Austrian forest warden, naturalist, philosopher, inventor and experimenter, who grew up with a love for the Alps. With his work he made an extraordinary contribution to knowledge of the natural world. His motto was “observe and copy nature.” 

Believing that modern education and the arrogance of the “experts” would hinder his ability to connect with nature and intuition, Schauberger refused to go to college. He instead spent time studying nature and inventing machines that worked with nature instead of against it. He was a gifted engineer and patented many environmentally friendly inventions during the 1930s, 40s and 50s. 

Schauberger found two forms of motion in nature: outward, expanding flow that is used to break down, and inward-spiraling, which nature uses to build up and energize. He ultimately discovered how vortices create energy, a scientific breakthrough that influences modern energy solutions. Structured water devices use this principle to energize and restructure water today. 

Unfortunately, most of Schauberger’s research and inventions were lost during WWII. However, his legacy continues to inspire other scientists to study and pursue the powerful energy of nature, water, and life. 

Dr. Masaru Emoto

“Water is the mirror that has the ability to show us what we cannot see. It is the blueprint for our reality, which can change with a single, positive thought. All it takes is faith, if you're open to it”

Dr. Masuro Emoto was a pioneer in water research. He’s best known for his experiments  using high speed photography to show the molecular structure of water as it freezes under a microscope. He showed how polluted water, or water exposed to a negative environment was distorted and assymmetrical. Water that was exposed to loving words in a positive environment showed beautiful, complex snowflake patterns. Dr. Emoto believed that water could be imprinted by things it was exposed to and that water retained memory from those exposures. Dr. Emoto’s work has often been questioned.

Changing scientific minds about a topic like water isn’t easy. Internet sources such as Wikipedia have created a sense of skepticism about Dr. Emoto’s work. However, since anyone can create a Wikipedia page, you may simply be reading one person’s biased and unscientific interpretation of the information. The Hydration Foundation has worked diligently to bring scientists and doctors together to validate the credibility of structured water. You can read the Hydration Foundation’s response to Wikipedia here.

John Stuart Reid is carrying forward some of Dr. Emoto’s ideas showing how sound can make an imprint on water and how sound waves affect blood. He’s an acoustic engineer studying cymatics. Cymatics is not new. Leonardo Da Vinci and Galileo did some work in cymatics.  However, Mr. Reid is merging and expanding ancient concepts with 21st century concepts from Dr. Emoto, to forge new frontiers in scientific research.     

Dr. Jerry Pollack - H3O2 and The 4th Phase of Water

Dr. Jerry Pollack, a bioengineering research scientist, is the winner of the Emoto Peace Prize for his research on structured water. He discovered H3O2, the 4th Phase of Water beyond liquid, solid and vapor. H3O2 is a state in between a solid and a liquid, slightly thicker than H2O. Dr. Pollack also coined the term EZ Water or exclusion zone water to describe how water in the human body can filter out, exclude, even the tiniest particles. That means, your body has an intuitive filtering system built right into it. 

Scientists choose their areas of research mostly based on curiosity from things they observe and question. In Dr. Pollack’s case, he’s been studying muscle physiology and water for well over 20 years. He discovered that water is a powerful repository of energy in muscle contractions. Water can have a charge like a battery and absorbs energy from light. Consequently, water can get energy the same way a plant does, through a process similar to photosynthesis. This shows that water is much more dynamic and adaptive to its environment than previously thought.

Dr. Pollack’s experiments proving that water has a Fourth Phase are certainly revolutionary, but not necessarily new. Over a century ago, Sir William Hardy believed in a Fourth Phase of Water. Other authors and scientists over the years have referred to an “order, structure” or “crystalline” state of water which answers everyday questions from why gelatin holds water or why teapots whistle. The water changes shape at a molecular level which causes it to change form.

Dr. Marcel Vogel

“When you put a minute trace, parts per million into water, of silica, the silica is…the nucleating site of water to start structuring around…”  Dr. Marcel Vogel

Even with this proof you might still be skeptical about structured water because you can’t see it change, like seeing water change to ice or vapor.  

Dr. Marcel Vogel was a top research scientist for 27 years for IBM. His life’s passion was expressed through the use of scientific instruments. He spent over 1 year of his life focused on experiments to determine or deny the existence of Structured Water. Using Ultra Violet Spectral Photometry he concluded:

  • Evidence of structuring in the form of visual bands in the range of 3000-4000 angstrom units
  • Structured Water is different than bulk water including that it stores energy
  • One drop of Structured Water raises the energy level of a container of liquid instantly
  • When water molecules link up in structure, they form a consciousness which is to say that water molecules organize themselves and store information
  • Water is the future of medicine as it can be programmed to have desired health giving energies.

The Hydration Foundation (HyFo)

The Hydration Foundation (HyFo) is a collective of doctors, scientists and thought leaders that are forging new territories in the area of hydration. Led by Gina Bria, HyFo is the leading authority on education about the benefits of optimal hydration from using structured water.  Restoring energy and cellular functioning through proper hydration is the single biggest factor in creating health and well being. 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. 

The Hydration Foundation has been featured on or in The New York Times, Thrive Global,  NPR, CBS, Oprah Magazine, TedX, Goop and by Dr. Mercola.  Some of the participating doctors are: Dr. Ben Edwards, Dr. Christine Northrup, Dr. Jerry Pollack, Dr. Dana Cohen, Dr. Thomas Cowan, Dr. Zach Bush, and Dr. Linda Lancaster. 

Many of the doctors associated with The Hydration Foundation practice Integrative Medicine, which is a more holistic approach to health than conventional medicine. Rather than simply treating symptoms, Integrative Medicine seeks to find the root cause of illnesses and disease. A growing number of doctors and health care providers are looking at chronic dehydration as the root cause of many health conditions. And they’re being bold enough to say that some solutions to complicated health problems may simply require proper hydration.
