Magnetized Water: Universal Source of Health?

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.

Case Study: Growing Potatoes in Idaho … with the help of Magnation Water Treatment

July 23rd, 2015

Potatoes are the leading vegetable crop in the United States.  And although potatoes are commercially grown in 30 states, Idaho leads the U.S. in potato farming, accounting for roughly one-third of the U.S. potato crop. Every spring Idaho farmers plant over 320,000 acres of potatoes that supply a variety of different markets ranging from seed to fresh to processing. About 60 percent of Idaho’s potato crop is processed into French fries, tater tots and other fried products, or dehydrated into chips, flakes and various other forms. Statewide, the crop is valued at between $550 million and $700 million per year. Because Idaho farmers need to spend approximately $2,500 to produce just one acre of potatoes, it’s no wonder that they are continually looking for innovative methods of cultivating their precious commodity so that they can get the most for their money.

Seed Maximizer™ Promotes Better Root Structure, Better Yields

April 21st, 2015
Magnation unit testing by Scott Borman and Green Valley Farms, Harvest Year: 2014
 
Mike,
I am writing this to let you know the testing results of the magnation unit.  I put a 6″ flanged Magnation unit on the bottom of a trash can and ran our corn seed and soybean seed through the unit right before it went into the planter.  Here are the results of my findings.  
 
Corn:  I didn’t see any difference in emergence time, but  I did notice the plants on the 8 treated rows were a little taller.  During the growing season we would scout the field and see if I noticed any difference.  Didn’t notice much difference through the growing season, but when you get 30″ plus of rain it’s pretty hard to see a difference out there.
 
In doing some root digs in various spots on this 80 acre piece of ground I noticed that the root mass was bigger on the seed that was magnetized compared to the one that wasn’t.  Lets fast forward to harvest.  Picked 8 rows of treated seed and weighed it and picked 8 rows of non-treated.  We picked up a little shy of 1/2 a bushel and acre just by running the seed through the Magnation unit.  This was not just in one spot of the field.  We checked multiple times and we were right in that 1/2 bushel an acre increase.  I also noticed the stalk quality was better on the treated plant than the untreated.  
 
So in my conclusion on running corn seed through Magnation’s units is this…  If you have purchased a unit for irrigation, you just as well utilize it on your seed to get more bang for your buck and have healthier plants.
 
Soybeans:  We treated the soybeans the same.  Ran one box through the Magnation unit and just dumped one box into the planter.  Side by side on about 95 acres.  My planter operator didn’t flag where he started at, so test was kind of non-determined.  But, the neighbor who bought a Magnation unit ran his soybeans through the Magnation unit and did a side by side.  Pulled some plants and noticed more root nodules than the untreated seed.  Probably double than the untreated.  This brings us to harvest.  There was a 3.3 bushels to the acre increase just by running the soybean seed through the Magnation unit.
 
Sprayer:  I put a 2″ unit on my John Deere sprayer. Sprayed my 32% on the corn ground, sprayed a pre-emerge on the beans. Sprayed my herbicide and glyphosate on the corn when it was 6″ tall. Then sprayed beans with glyphosate and foliar blend. Results are this: There are a lot of variables in spraying… wind, heat, humidity and water.  I mixed no ams [ammonium sulfate] in my spray and noticed the best weed control I have seen.  I sprayed some Volunteer corn on a Friday at 12 in the afternoon and by 9 am the next day it was turning silver and dying—a positive thing when it happens so quickly.  Also when spraying I noticed the tank mix that I was spraying wasn’t drifting.  I could run faster with more pressure less drift covering more acres.”
 
Thanks for a great product to help increase my bottom line on our farming operation.  Cannot wait to do some more experiments with it this next year.
 
Thanks again,
Scott Borman

Another Nebraska Farmer writes:
 
“Our results have been remarkable. Where we installed the Magnation unit, the corn out-yielded our other irrigated corn but used 30% less irrigation water. The corn was 11% better than that fields previous best yield, there was noticeably better uniformity across the sprinklers on the pivot, and our pumping costs were lower. ”  ~ Lee Fintel, Superior, NE

The map above is a yield map taken from Mr. Fintel’s combine monitor in Superior, Nebraska. The red box indicates where the testing took place, at a diagonal angle to assure the data was specific to this test. Every other row was treated with Magnation’s Seed Maximizer. 6.29 acres was treated, and 6.29 acres was untreated. The green is the higher yield, the yellow the lower yield. Untreated seeds yielded 55.1 bushels an acre. The Magnation-treated seeds yielded 58.58 bushels an acre. Magnation boosted 3.48 extra bushels per acre. Currently soybeans are $9.50 a bushel, earning an extra $33.06 an acre.
 
 
 

Golf Course Superintendent Saves 2.5 Million Gallons Per Month with Magnation

April 13th, 2015
My name is Dean Piller, Member of the GCSAA for 25 years.  I am the Superintendent of the Cordova Bay Golf Course in Victoria, British Columbia and Past Past President of the Canadian Golf Superintendents Association.  I read with interest an article about the water restrictions and serious drought facing California.  Two years ago I began doing research on the Magnation product line that has the ability to reduce irrigation requirements for turf and agriculture crops by up to 25%.  We have installed pump station magnets on both of my golf courses with noticeable results.  Last summer, in one of the hottest and driest summers on record our irrigation daily run times were 80,000 gallons less per night equating to 2.5 million gallons per month.
