Magnetized Water: Universal Source of Health?

Monday, August 24th, 2015

hanslarsenResearch carried out by NASA has demonstrated that astronauts who are cut off from the earth’s magnetic field develop significant health problems which can be prevented by providing an artificial magnetic field within the space capsule(1,2).

Do you suffer from a magnetic deficiency? The answer could well be “yes” unless you are already taking special precautions to avoid it. The earth’s magnetic field is declining steadily and has lost over 30 per cent of its strength over the last 2000 years. Some scientists believe the decline is accelerating and that we may be headed for a complete reversal where the magnetic North pole will be situated at the geographic South pole instead of at the geographic North pole as is currently the case. Magnetic field reversals take place only very rarely. The last one happened about 780,000 years ago so we don’t know what the effects of a reversal would be. We do know that once the reversal process starts it can proceed relatively quickly and be completed in as little as 2000 years(3,4). Human beings have no doubt adapted to a certain strength of the earth’s magnetic field. At the moment this strength is declining at a rate which may exceed our capacity to cope. Add to that the fact that we, to an increasing degree, encase ourselves in steel or reinforced concrete buildings, cars, subways and many other “cages” which essentially screen out the already weakened magnetic field and the stage could well be set for a massive dose of magnetic deficiency syndrome(1).

Magnets and Health
The human body is profoundly responsive to electromagnetic fields. MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) is a powerful medical diagnostic technique which uses magnetic fields to distinguish between healthy and diseased tissues. Treatment with pulsed electromagnets (pulsars) has been found highly effective in curing or alleviating conditions such as bone fractures, migraine headaches, insomnia and depression. Pads and mattresses with built-in magnets are used to alleviate insomnia, rheumatic pain, migraines and circulatory problems. Says Dr. Wolfgang Ludwig ScD PhD of the Institute for Biophysics in Horb, Germany “Magnetic field therapy is a method that penetrates the whole human body and can treat every organ without chemical side effects”(1,5-8).

The effects of the North pole (negative) and South pole (positive) magnetism are quite different. North polarity stabilizes, calms and sedates and also reduces pain, infection and inflammation. South polarity, on the other hand, is acid producing, enervating, biologically disorganizing and may accelerate bacteria growth. Magnets with a South polarity should only be used under the care of a trained practitioner if at all(1,6).

The fact that our bodies consist mainly of water and that all our bodily processes are heavily dependent on water has lead to research into the possibility of using magnetized water to promote health and treat disease.

Benefits of Magnetized Water
For those of us who associate magnetism with intricate patterns of iron filings between the poles of a magnet the idea that water can be magnetized sounds pretty far out. However, there is ample evidence that magnetizing water either with permanent magnets or with electromagnets actuallly has a profound effect. The first practical application of water magnetization occurred in the 1950’s when engineers discovered that magnetically treated water had a greatly reduced tendency to form scale when heated. Several explanations for this have been advanced. The most plausible being that magnetization breaks up the “clusters” of water which surround lime and other “foreign” molecules. By doing so these molecules get the opportunity to crystallize and be carried along in the water rather than deposit themselves on the walls of the pipes. Although this explanation has many proponents it does not fully explain why magnetized water also dissolves old scale deposits(9-12).

Magnetized water has also been found useful in the treatment of swimming pool water. Researchers at the University of Cranfield in the UK recently discovered that they could reduce the amount of chlorine needed to kill bacteria in a pool by 30 percent by clamping magnets on the water supply line. Dr. Klaus Kronenberg, a professor at the California State Polytechnic University, has found that the use of magnetized swimming pool water essentially eliminates the deposits formed where the top surface of the water meets the sides of the pool(13-15).

Researchers at the Medical University of South Carolina recently reported that cleaning the teeth with water from a magnetized irrigator can reduce calculus formation by over 60 per cent and improve overall gum health(16).

Israeli agricultural researchers found that the use of magnetized water increased farm yields by anywhere from 5 to 20 per cent. Cows drinking magnetized water produced more milk and were healthier than cows drinking untreated water. Sheep produced more wool and meat, hens laid more eggs and all farm animals survived longer when drinking magnetized water(9,10,17).

Anecdotal evidence of the health benefits of magnetized water abounds. Magnetized water is claimed to be energy-building, activating, cleansing and detoxifying. There are reports of people resolving bladder problems, recovering quickly from a stroke, alleviating arthritis pain and reducing blood pressure by drinking magnetized water. It is perhaps reasonable to assume that if scientific studies on animals have proven that magnetized water has health benefits, then it should also be beneficial to humans. However, so far there have been no systematic, clinical trials done to prove or disprove the healing effects of magnetized water in humans(1,17,18).

Revitalizing Our Water
The vitalizing and healing properties of magnetized water are believed to be intimately tied in with its “memory”. Fresh, “virgin” water from a mountain stream is full of vitality especially if it has flowed over volcanic rock which is highly paramagnetic. During its passage through contaminated soil, miles of iron or plastic pipe, and treatment plants where it is exposed to toxic chemicals it loses its vitality. By the time it comes out of the tap it is essentially lifeless. Some researchers believe that the average city tap water may actually be harmful, not only because of its content of toxins, but also because it has developed a polarity which is harmful to our health. Other researchers suggest that the degradation of our tap water can bring its vitality lower than the vitality of the human body, resulting in feeling drained and tired after a shower or bath(9,17,19).

Fortunately, recent research has shown that it is possible to regenerate water to its original healthy state by magnetizing it. It is now clear that water has a very definite structure. A water molecule consists of two hydrogen atoms and an oxygen atom. Because of the electron configuration of the molecule the hydrogen atoms tend to attract other water molecules resulting in the formation of clusters which can contain anywhere from four to hundreds of water molecules each. Some very exciting research done in Hungary has shown that these clusters actually have a memory and can remember and carry an imprint of the magnetic energy they have been exposed to either simply from the earth’s magnetic field or through flowing over paramagnetic rock. It is the fact that this memory is devastated on the way to the tap which renders our drinking water lifeless(9,19-22).

Water can be re-magnetized by passing it through pipes which have permanent or electromagnets attached to them or by leaving water on top of a magnet overnight. The magnets must be carefully designed to match the water’s flow rate and should always be placed as close as possible to the outlet after other treatment units and filters. In stationary (overnight) magnetization it is important to ensure that only negatively polarized water or mixed negative and positive water is used. Magnetized water is softer than tap water so magnetization can result in significant savings in detergent and soap use. It also helps prevent deposits on cutlery and glasses washed in a dish washer and can even make hair shinier.

Johann Grander and Heinrich Antosch, both disciples of the “father of water magnetization”, Dr. Viktor Schauberger, have developed units which produce “living water”. The units first use violent vortex mixing in a special chamber to eliminate the water’s memory of pollutants, chlorine, etc. and then imprint a beneficial magnetic memory on the water before it exits the tap. The units are installed under the sink or on the main water line and should always be situated after any other filters and treatment devices(9,17,18).

Treatment with Paramagnetic Soil
A very recent development in magnetic water treatment involves the use of paramagnetic soil. Paramagnetic soil comes from volcanic rock which was permanently imprinted with the earth’s magnetic field just before it solidified. Paramagnetic rock and soil are not ferromagnetic (does not attract iron filings) but their magnetic dipoles are aligned in such a way that the soil or rock is strongly attracted to a regular magnet. Due to the age of the rock the “magnetic field” imbedded in it is often quite strong, considerably stronger than the earth’s magnetic field today. It is interesting that many holy sites and healing spas were built near paramagnetic rock formations. Perhaps our ancestors were able to feel directly the benefits of paramagnetism(19,23).

The use of water treated by contact with paramagnetic soil is still in its infancy. However, agricultural experiments have clearly shown that both the paramagnetic soil itself (used as a fertilizer) and irrigation with paramagnetically treated water increase yields and plant vigour significantly(23).

Anecdotal evidence of health benefits are emerging and inexpensive treatment equipment is being developed. A concerted effort is also being undertaken to develop reliable methods of actually measuring the effects of treating water either with magnets or paramagnetic soil. There is some indication that the UV (ultraviolet) spectrum of water is changed by magnetization and Dr. Thomas Narvaez, a researcher in Washington State, has successfully used radionics to measure the vitality of treated water. A clinical trial is in the planning stage to evaluate the benefits of magnetized water in the treatment of chronic fatigue syndrome(19,21,22,24-26).

Magnetized water is truly emerging as one of the most exciting developments in the ongoing battle to protect our health.

How much water is used in the United States each day for irrigation of crops?

Daily irrigation use is much larger than drinking water use (about four times), but the volume depends on the location and the time of year. It takes about 50 glasses of water just to grow enough oranges to produce one glass of orange juice, for example. One estimate puts the total amount used for irrigation at 141 billion gallons a day, 66% from surface water and 34% from groundwater. Of course, most irrigation water is not treated as tap water is. A 20% reduction equals a savings of an average of 28.2 billion gallons daily in US agricultural land alone! 

Total industrial use, by comparison, is about 160 billion gallons per day. A 20% reduction equals a savings of 32 billion gallons in US industrial applications, daily.

Information provided by Agricultural Water Conservation Clearinghouse

An independent controlled study conducted in 2014 by Olds College in Canada; (The Effects of Magnet Treated Irrigation Water on Kentucky Bluegrass in a Greenhouse Environment, MacKenzie, Johb, Plantje, 2014) treated irrigation water with Magnation® Rainbolt™ water systems in a greenhouse environment, with the control group remaining untreated. Results show the same effect is achieved while using 20% less irrigation water when treated, for a total of 80% water application, as compared to the controlled amount of 100% normal water application. 

Approximately 2.08 billion gallons of water are used everyday to irrigate golf courses in the United States. (Lyman, 2012). A 20% reduction equals a significant savings of 416 million gallons daily in US turfgrass for golf courses alone.

In summary, in only Agricultural, Industrial and Golf turgrass applications, Magnation Water Technologies can SAVE 60.5 BILLION GALLONS OF WATER A DAY without any added chemicals, energy, or maintenance to make it work, and zero by-products.

Magnation of Water

Tuesday, August 12th, 2014

Magnation of Water Experiment.  We were sent the results of an experiment examining property differences between Magnation water and regular water.  The attached paper illustrates that while there is some overlap between Magnation Water and regular (control) water, the Magnation Water is clearly different. It is this difference that allows Magnation Water to be so effective and beneficial for the cell structure of plants, animals, and human health as seen across the United States and abroad. Related to our previous post – Biochemical Sequence of Nutrition in Plants – the additional properties of Magnation Water allow nutrients to be more accessible to cells, developing vigorous crops, greener turf, healthier soils, animals, and people.

Make Magnation part of your life and gain great tangible and intangible value for your family, farm, poultry, turf/golf course, fertigation, and more.



Biochemical Sequence of Nutrition in Plants

Monday, August 11th, 2014

Biochemical Sequence of Nutrition in Plants is a great article which bring attention to how agriculture can be oversimplified.  And when it is oversimplified, actions intended to benefit plant growth, like adding NPK fertilizer, can actually hinder the process.   While it can be helpful to simplify complex problems, solutions that only address a portion of the issue or process are not sustainable.  In this article, the author identified at least 8 elements that are important for comprehensive plant health, but many fertilizers only focus on 3: nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium.  The author’s more holistic approach to agriculture is more sustainable and effective in the long run.

Bakersfield Parks & Rec Mesa Marin Sports Park Test

Thursday, July 10th, 2014

On July 2nd, Jerry Todd met Parks & Rec staff led by Supervisor Frank Hinojosa to install a 1” Magnation unit. The site was selected as their “worst case scenario” of very clayey soil.

  1. We attempted to take core samples and found the City’s nor my coring tools could penetrate the clayey soil. We finally got one core in a moist area near a leak.
  2. Root depth – approx. 2”
  3. We were able to turn over sod to check the turf from under the surface.
  4. They selected the landscaped traffic circle for the area to test.
  5. Comparable site is across the driveway, but fed from another line.
  6. The unit was installed in the valve box for visibility and easy access.
  7. I received a signed receipt for the unit and copied Department Head Darin Budak with the quoted price.
We’ll monitor the site weekly through 9/2 and keep you updated as the test progresses!

The 4th Phase of Water

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

We won’t be surprised if Gerald H. Pollack will win the Nobel Peace Prize for his work in the field of water. Quoted as “the most significant scientific discovery of this century”, the concept is is beyond our current understanding of water being either a solid, liquid or vapor. The central message of the book: Water participates in virtually everything. It’s behavior depends on location and microenvironment. Pollack lays a simple foundation for understanding how changes of water structure underlie most energetic transitions of form and motion on Earth.

Here are the Four Foundational Principals, which you can further read about in the book:

Principle 1: Water Has Four Phases

  1. Ice (solid)
  2. EZ /Exclusion Zone (best described as a liquid crystal with physical properties analogous to those of raw egg white)
  3. Water (liquid)
  4. Vapor (gas)

Principle 2: Water Stores Energy
Water stores energy in two modes: order and charge separation.

Principle 3: Water gets Energy from Light
The sun’s electromagnetic energy builds potential energy in water. Water continually absorbs energy from the environment and transduces that energy into work.

Principle 4: Like-Charged Entities Can Attract One Another
Like charges themselves don’t attract; the attraction is mediated by the unlike charges that gather in between. Those unlikes draw the like charges toward one another, until like-like repulsion balances the attraction.


What does this mean for you?

The 4th gel-like phase of water “EZ” as mentioned above, excludes solutes, including contaminants, harvesting the EZ amounts to collecting untainted water. It amounts to a filterless filter that achieves purification courtesy of incident electromagnetic energy. This implies, whether we understand it or not, water technologies based on physics, not chemicals, has a valid and powerful foundation in science. Magnation Water Technologies is here to offer these technologies to you, for your benefit and our planet’s.

Several thousand magnetic water conditioners are now rendering great service in buildings all sizes, from private homes to hospitals, schools, military buildings, etc. These units will protect the whole circuit of cold and hot water as well as sanitary installations against scale formationand corrosion when placed where the water main enters the premises. It is remarkable to note that algae, such as normally grow on coolers in the open air and in swimming pools, die rapidly under the effects of the magnetic treatment.

Vermelren, T., Corrosion Technology (Belgium).


It may sound rather surprising that water can be purified by magnetic treatment but the fact is unquestionable. The answer as to why a magnetic field affects the properties of waste has not yet been found; it can only be expected when further research has elucidated the properties of the water molecule.

Belova, V., Ph.D., Doctor of Chemical Sciences, Institute of General and Inorganic Chemistry, Academy of Sciences, USSR, Soviet Science Review (USSR).


“Based upon analyses of existing technical literature on the magnetic treatment of water and its ability to alter water properties, there are many basic areas where the utilization of this method has great practical merit, such as elimination of scale; control of encrustation; reduction of salt deposits; intensification of coagulation and crystallization; improving bacterial function of disinfectants; acceleration of reagent diffusion; increasing the efficiency of ion-exchange resin; removal of fine particles in the purification or recycling of waste water; extraction of valuablemetals from; acceleration of the solidification of cements, increasing the density and strength of casting molds; etc.”

Stevoich, V.A., Liebhold, K., Hibben, S.G., Air Force Office of Scientific Research, Advanced Research Projects Agency of the United States Department of Defense, Arlington, Virginia, USA.


“It was concluded that the magnetic unit used in these tests was very effective in controlling scale and corrosion in water systems, in such diverse applications as a large air conditioning condenser, syrup evaporators in a sugar mill, cooling exchangers in a large chemical processing plant in a boiler and a steam generator. Significant savings in time, cost and equipment were effected in all cases.”

Agricultural Water Stewardship Definition

The agricultural use of water in a manner that optimizes agricultural water use while addressing the co-benefits of water for food production, the environment, and human health. Agricultural water stewardship is premised on the notion that water management decisions cannot be made in isolation of the ecological, social, and economic context. It emphasizes whole-farm, place-based approaches that recognize the role of agriculture in the local watershed, and of local biogeographical conditions such as soil type, soil ecology, topography, and terrestrial and aquatic ecology in water management decisions.


Nearly a quarter of farmers surveyed by the Agricultural Water Management Council said that lack of technical assistance limited their ability to implement water conservation practices. Magnation offers free information on how the H2O Energizer can be beneficial to your Farm, as well as Home and Garden.
