Magnetic Water Treatment Is A Proposed Method Of Reducing The Effects Of Hard Water

  1. 1. Magnetic water treatment is a proposed method of reducing the effects of hard water, as an alternative to water softening.[1] Vendors of magnetic water treatment devices have claimed that powerful magnetic fields can affect the structure of water molecules or the properties of solutes passing through the magnetic field, thus eliminating the need for chemical softening agents.[2][3] Only the effective hardness is claimed to be altered; no solutes (such as calcium or magnesium) are removed from the water by the process.[1][2] Scientific studies do not support these claims and suggest magnetic water treatment may be ineffective and pseudoscientific<br />No proposed mechanism by which magnetic water treatment could reduce buildup of limescale accounts for all factors or has found wide acceptance in the magnetic water treatment community or elsewhere.[3] Duration of exposure and field strength, gradient, rate of change, and orientation along or perpendicular to flow are variously cited as important to the results.[4] Magnetic water treatment proponent Klaus Kronenberg proposed that the shapes of solute lime molecules are modified by strong magnetic fields, leading them to precipitate as spherical or round crystals rather than deposit as sheets or platelets of hard crystals.[5] John Donaldson, professor of chemistry at Brunel University, proposed that the crucial step is the interruption of agglomeration of particles carrying a surface charge after dissolved contaminants have nucleated as a colloidal suspension.[6] Simon Parsons of the School of Water Sciences at Cranfield University proposed that the magnetic field reduces the surface charge on small particles, increasing the tendency to coagulate as large particles that stay with the flow rather than depositing as scale.[6] Some proponents propose that formation of the softer polymorph aragonite over the more common calcite is favored in the presence of a magnetic field; an internal study in 1996 at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory found no difference in preferred crystal structure of scale deposited in magnetic water treatment systems.[7] More outré claims, including " magnetized" water, breaking of pole symmetry, or vast changes in surface tension or water pH are scientifically naïve and untenable.<br />About 4 months ago I started drinking what I call magnetic water as a means of energizing my body. After a month or so an unusual effect started to show up.It first showed up on a friend of mine called Bob S. I introduced him to the methods of making magnetic water. He took it up and in his experimentation he went a little further than I did. He was processing his water for about 5 days and drinking 3 cups a day, while I was only processing it for 2 to 3 days. He reported to me that his hair was turning dark, especially in the back of his head near the neck line. As time went on, this effect spread upward and more toward the front. Now after about 4 months his hair is about 95% dark in the back and about 80%, and in the sides and front and his beard about 50% dark.At that time, which was about 3 months ago, I started watching my own hair. Before I started drinking what I call " magnetic water" my head hair was about 90% gray, and the hair on my beard and mustache was 100% gray. I did not know about the effect of this energized water hair so I was not watching it for the first few months. So when I first noticed it the hair on the back of my head had already turned about 30% dark; now after about 4 to 5 months my hair on the sides, back and top is about 60% turned. My mustache is about 50% turned dark while the beard is still pure white-gray.<br />As a result of these effects I decided to upgrade my processing facility and make it possible for me to have 5 day water. Five day water is defined as water that remains in the magnetic activation apparatus for a minimum of 5 days. Previous to that I was only using 2 to 3 day water. Now we drink a minimum of 3 cups of this water a day and probably 5 to 6 cups.What is very unusual about these changes is that the whole hair changes at once from gray to black. It does not start at the roots and grow out but the whole length of the hair turns at once. You may have heard of stories about a person who experienced a terrible shock in their life and their hair turned white over night, well I believe that this magnetic water has the reverse effect, but at a much smaller amount and it takes months to see the effect but the positive effect is there and is real.The apparatus for making this water is very simple. It consists of an empty new one gallon, in paint can, in which is placed an empty one liter soda bottle that has the top cut off at the level where it starts to get narrower. In the space between the inner wall of the paint can and the empty one liter container, magnetite is poured. This makes a cylinder of powdered magnetite about one and one half inches thick surrounding the one liter size hole in the center. Into this hole is placed a standard bottle of store bought spring water that is about 710 ml size (that's a 3 cup volume of water). It fits in very nicely.<br />You make up a minimum of five of these units. Take one bottle out every day and drink the water.What I think is happening is that the magnetite which is a strong magnetic suscepter is concentrating the earth's magnetic fields into it's cylindrical shape and the shape effect, in turn, sets up a magnetic spiral vortex in the core of the cylinder in which the water is stored. This in turn activates the water with the magnetic energy.I think this is the activating force for change in our bodies toward regeneration, as we drink it, and the hair color restoration is the first sign of this happening. A second sign is that my fingernails are growing faster and stronger and my skin seems to be getting smother and softer, in spots, with less skin tags.Bob S had to go to the dentist to have two molars crowned. He had been drinking the water for about two months before going to the dentist. The dentist told him that he was going to have to do two root canals at $475.00 each before he could do the crowns. When the dentist removed the old fillings he was surprised because he said that where the root was supposed to be, the molars had calcified! He couldn't believe it! He said he had never seen anything like it. Bob S was really happy because he saved $950.00!<br />What is Bio-Magnetic Water?Water is paramagnetic – meaning that it will hold a magnetic charge.  In nature, the earth’s magnetic field naturally charges water in lakes, wells, and running streams. However, as water passes through treatment plants and is transported through pipes to your home or work place, it loses its magnetic charge.  Treating water with magnetic fields simple restores the natural energy and balance that nature intended. Magnetized water has more hydroxyl (OH-) ions that form alkaline molecules which reduces the acidity.  Normal tap water has a pH of about 7. Magnetized water is more alkaline and can have a pH as high as 9.2.  Magnetizing water reduces the surface tension of the water making it feel softer.  It is thinner, wetter, and more absorbable, so it is better able to penetrate cell walls and deliver the nutrients that it carries.<br />Health BenefitsYour body is over 70% water. All biological functions including circulation, digestion, absorption, and excretion depend on water.  Water is required for blood, the lymphatic system, and healthy skin and muscles.  It is well known among health professionals that when you are sick, the pH of your body is more acidic.  Magnetized water, which is more alkaline, raises the pH of your body, which allows the body to get rid of the toxins.  Bio-magnetized water is believed to be energy-building, activating, cleansing, and detoxifying.  People have reported resolving bladder problems, recovering quickly from a stroke, alleviating arthritis pain, reducing blood pressure, and breaking up kidney and gall stones by drinking magnetic water.  Scientific studies have proven that magnetized water has health benefits for animals.  Therefore it seems reasonable that it should also be beneficial for humans.  Reported health benefits of drinking magnetic water include:•    Magnetic water tastes sweeter and has more clarity.•    Magnetic water reduces acidity in the body and promotes a more alkaline pH.•    Magnetic water promotes healing of wounds and burns.•    Magnetic water has a therapeutic effect of digestive, nervous, and urinary systems.•    Magnetic water can be beneficial for asthma, fevers, colds, coughs, bronchitis, and sore throats.•    Magnetic water can be beneficial for menstrual and menopause discomfort.•    Magnetic water revitalized the body.•    Magnetic water has a positive effect on the autonomic nervous system.•    Magnetic water can help regulate the heart function and clear clogged arteries.•    Magnetic water is beneficial for kidney ailments (removal and prevention of stones), gout, obesity (it improves metabolic activity),         and premature aging.•    Magnetic water helps relieve pain.•    Magnetic water infuses energy into the body, controls bacteria, and stimulates brain function.•    Magnetic water can help dissipate toxic deposits in the body’s connective tissue.•    Magnetic water can regulate blood pressure (high or low).•    Magnetic water can be used to wash and disinfect external cuts and scrapes.•    Magnetic water will remove the plaque on your teeth if you use it to brush your teeth, rinse your mouth, and drink.•    Magnetic water will make your hair softer and more manageable while using less shampoo when used to wash your hair.•    Magnetic water is ionic so it helps reset the charge on cell walls, thus promoteing better circulation.PetsYour pets will enjoy many of the same benefits from bio-magnetic water that you do.  They will drink more water, have more energy, and feel younger and healthier.  A friend was giving her dogs magnetic water.  When she moved, she temporarily had to give them tap water.  After a few days, they began scratching all the time.  When she started them back on bio-magnetic water, the scratching stopped almost completely.PlantsBio-Magnetized water will help your plants grow stronger, greener, and larger.  In one study seedlings’ germination rates were 68 % with bio-magnetized water, while with non-magnetized water only 8% germinated.  In another study, Texas A&M researchers found that squash weighed 24% more when it was grown with magnetized water vs. non-magnetized water.  Bio-magnetic water is more solvent and has a lower surface tension, so nutrients in the water are absorbed more readily.  Thus you get a healthier plant while using less fertilizer.Other Fluids & UsesAlmost any fluid can be magnetized.  Using Bio-Magnetic Water will drastically improve the taste of coffee, tea, and foods.  Foods and beverages made using magnetic water will acquire the same healing powers as bio-magnetic water.  Cosmetics, facial and skin products function a lot better when magnetized.  Magnetized milk will give vigor and vitality to the weak and exhausted person.  Magnetized milk has been proven useful for recuperating and enhancing sexual power.  When fruit juices are treated with bio-magnets, they become more refreshing and give more nourishment.  Beer can be magnetized to give better effect.  Magnetized olive oil can be very rewarding in the treatment of gout and rheumatism.Use bio-magnetic water to make your coffee and after a month or two the inside of your coffee maker will look like new.  The bio-magnetic water will remove the scale build-up in your coffee maker.How to make Bio-Magnetic WaterMaking Bio-magnetic water is quite simple: just place a glass or container filled with water on a magnetic pad.  Never use a metal container.  You want to use a container that has a flat bottom without any raised edges.  You want the bottom of the container touching the magnet pad.  How long you need to leave the water on the magnet will depend on how much water you have. I usually use a gallon milk container and leave it on the pad for 4-6 hours or longer.  It won’t hurt to leave it there longer, you can even just leave the container on the pad and refill it as you use the water.  The water will stay magnetized for several days after you take it off the magnet.<br />Magnetic Magic The EconomicalHard Water Solution<br />Is your home suffering from hard water corrosion? Our Magnetic Magic Water Conditioning System will create an unlimited supply of water that will feel and act like " soft water" and will stop calcium and lime scaling in your pipes and fixtures caused by hard water. You'll actually save money buying our magnetic water conditioning system. <br />What is magnetohydrodynamics and why should I be interested? <br />Basically, water moves through the earth dissolving minerals, holding them in solution as salts, consisting mainly of calcium and magnesium. Most of these salts eventually deposit themselves as scale in your pipes, water heater and other appliances which use water. Scale build-up is the result of a natural crystallization process which is accelerated by heating. The energy loss of trying to heat water through scale is substantial. A one-half inch thick layer of scale in your water heater will retard heat transfer by up to 70 percent! That's costing you money and a good reason why you should be interested. <br />Unless you paid out $1,200 to $1,500 dollars for traditional water softening system or ordered a costly monthly service, those who live in a hard water areas have been forced to wage a constant war against hard water corrosion in their hot water heater, fixtures and showers. Not anymore! <br />Say Good-bye To:<br />High Dental bills! This report proves magnetized water reduces plaque. <br />Water Heaters burning out their elements due to scaling. <br />Decreased water pressure due to mineral deposits clogging water pipes. <br />Scale or spots on glassware, silverware and on your car. <br />Crust rings forming in your toilet tanks, white spotting on bath tubs, tile and chrome. <br />White deposits on shower heads and other faucets. <br />Hard to remove soap scum on shower tiles and doors. <br />Sticky valves and faucets on water heaters and sinks. <br />Appliances failing before their time. <br />Elevated levels of sodium in your diet from " traditional" water softening systems. <br />This revolutionary new product will not only solve those problems, but will actually pay for itself in about 12 months in many ways: <br />Your water heater will become more efficient as the magnetized water cleans out previous scale build-up while preventing new deposits from forming. <br />FYI: The U.S. Bureau of the Interior reports that a 3/8 inch scale build up in your hot water causes you to use 48 percent more fuel to heat the water. There's almost a 50 percent savings right there (year after year after year etc...)! <br />Any appliance that uses water-- icemakers, coffee makers, dishwashers, drinking water filters and any other appliance that uses water will see quality improvement and last longer. <br />And the savings go on and on. Once you install these special space age magnets around your water pipe, there is no more maintenance and they are guaranteed for life. If you ever move, simply remove them and take them with you. <br />Earlier I said " This new, revolutionary product" . Well, that's not entirely correct. They've been using magnetic systems to treat hard water in Europe for almost 40 years. What is new however, is the use of powerful magnets developed for NASA (ultra powerful ceramic magnets that don't wear out or require outside power), computers to calculate the exact strength of the magnetic field necessary and the introduction of this process to the United States. <br />How does MagnetoHydroDynamics work? <br />A study conducted for the U.S. Air Force in 1973 concluded that magnetically conditioned water kept scale from forming on heated surfaces. As your water passes through the Magnetic Magic focused magnetic field, the water molecules are aligned into a uniform directional field. This keeps the minerals in suspension and will not allow them to form any scale. In fact, this magnetic water will dissolve any scale build up you already have and flush it down the drain further saving you money. <br />Some of the benefits of softening your water include: <br />All soaps will be more efficient saving you money in many ways. <br />You'll add luster and beauty to your hair with a fraction of the shampoo normally used. <br />Soft water is gentler on your skin. <br />Dishes and glasses come out sparkling clean without unsightly water spots. <br />Your clothes will last longer and come out looking cleaner using less soap! <br />Mineral deposits on fixtures are easier to remove. <br />You'll swim or relax in crystal clear waters of pools and spas that require less clarifiers, purifiers and chlorine. Reduced chemical usage saves you more money and increases swimmer comfort! <br />Last, but not least, your plants will love your magnetized water. Your yard will be the envy of the neighborhood. <br />And it's good for you too! <br />There is growing concern about salt based water softening systems. In fact, the American Heart Association has issued a health warning on water systems which use salt because an elevated sodium level has been linked to a variety of health problems. Magnetic Magic is the salt free solution. Further... <br />Since the minerals are in suspension, they are in a form most usable by your body. <br />After about a month, you'll notice your teeth feel cleaner. They are! <br />Click Here to read an overview of biomagnetics and what is called " Magnetic Deficiency Syndrome" . Very interesting. <br />And you'll be doing your part for the environment too! <br />Twenty five communities in California have banned or restricted use of water softeners that use salt because of ground water contamination. That's just in California. The trend toward magnetic water softening is sure to grow. <br />So let's review the benefits. <br />First and foremost, this is a one time investment. Your Magnetic Magic water softening system will pay for itself in about 12 months and continue saving you money year after year. <br />Once installed (it's simple, you can do it yourself), the Magnetic Magic system requires no maintenance and lasts a lifetime (Instructions included). <br />Cleaning will be easier. The person who has that chore will appreciate that! <br />You'll enjoy all the benefits listed above without adding salt to your diet. <br />Your Magnetic Magic system requires no energy to run and it's environmentally friendly. <br />It's portable so you only need to buy your system once in your lifetime. <br />Can be used on pools and spas <br />It's Good For You! <br />Magnetic water is a controversial treatment but one of the most powerful in magnetic therapy. One of the biggest controversies is whether water can be magnetized. The theory behind being able to magnetize water is that as the water flows underground, it comes in contact with the earth's electro-magnetic field and the magnetic charge is passed into the water. When the water is treated for drinking, it is put through metal treatment pipes, which de-magnetizes it. Also, water only holds its magnetic properties for three days. Magnetized water has many healing benefits and can be made at home using one of three techniques.<br />Magnetized Water <br />Michael Lam, MD,<br />History left0Some decades ago, Russian scientists faced a major industrial problem. When water flows through pipelines of a boiler or an engine machinery, some deposits from the water cling to the walls of the pipes. Over time, the lumen becomes narrower and the delivery of water to the machinery is reduced. The efficiency, fuel consumption and mechanical strength of the While researching on this problem, scientists noticed that such undesirable deposits did not occur in those pipes with water that was magnetized. This started the magnetization of water for industrial use in countries where water source is less than desirableScientists became highly interested in studying magnetism. Water is a transparent fluid that has no color, odor, shape or taste of its own. It takes the shape of its container and the color, odor and taste of other things mixed with it. It is a near-universal solvent. It has the property of being able to assimilate the properties of other things. Researchers found when a permanent magnet is kept in contact with water for a considerable time; the water gets magnetically charged and acquires magnetic properties. Such magnetized water has its effect even on the human body when taken internally and regularly for a considerable period. <br />Use of magnets in HealingAncient people have used magnetized water also without understanding its mechanism of action. Streams flowing over natural magnets in the shape of stones and boulders became magnetized and their water, when consumed by the people of that age, provided miraculous cures and energy. In India, the use of magnets in healing (called Indian Magnetotherapy) is an ancient therapy. Literature had described the use of magnets to stop bleeding thousands of years ago.In recent decades, there has been a resurgence in the use of magnetic in healing of a variety of ailments, primarily in pain control of chronic degenerative diseases such as arthritis. <br />How Magnets Workright0Magnets have two poles, North and South.  It is based on Nature's law.  Every cell in the human body can be viewed as a small magnetic unit.  This property is present in all organs.  Each cell produces its own magnetic field.  Any disturbance in this magnetic field indicates a disorder.  This equilibrium can be restored with the help of magnets, according to many researchers. Technically, magnetism works because it increases the speed of sedimentation of suspended particles in water (and other liquids) and enhances conductivity as well as the process of ionization or dissociation of atoms and molecules into electrically charged particles. (New Scientist, June 1992.) Physics shows that chemicals change weight under the influence of magnetic fields; so does water. More hydroxyl (OH-) ions are created to form calcium bicarbonate and other alkaline molecules.  It is these molecules that help reduce acidity. Normal tap water has a pH level of about 7, whereas magnetized water can reach 7.8 pH after exposure to a 7000 gauss strength magnet for a long period of time.  Cancer cells do not survive well in an alkaline environment. Magnets also affect the bonding angle between the hydrogen and the oxygen atom in the water molecule.  Magnetized water causes the hydrogen-oxygen bond angle within the water molecule to be reduced from 104 to 103 degrees.  This in turn causes the water molecule to cluster together in groups of 6-7 rather than 10-12.  The smaller cluster leads to better absorption of water across cell walls.  There have been numerous reports, of those drinking magnetized water daily,  of people being cured of many chronic degenerative disease such as renal stones and arthritis. <br />Human ApplicationsExperience has shown that magnetized water contributes and helps in the treatment of many  diseases.  It is especially beneficial in treating digestive, nervous, urinary disorders, and chronic degenerative diseases. . Some researchers pointed out the apparent difference between water exposed to the north versus the south pole.  It is believed that water magnetized by the North Pole stops the growth of bacteria and works as an antibiotic.  Water magnetized by the South Pole takes care of pain, swelling and weakness.  Water magnetized by both North and South Poles enhances overall general health.  Well documented scientific evidence to show the differences between north and south poles and their effects on health is still inconclusive, <br />The degree of magnetization depends on three things: 1. The quantity of liquid put on the magnet. 2. The power of the magnet used for the purpose. 3. The duration of the contact of the liquid container with the magnet. These three factors will naturally determine the degree of magnetization. Although we can measure the power of a magnet, we have no method of measuring the degree of magnetization of water.  In the absence of any definite measure, only experience can guide us. A simple way to magnetize water is to keep two liter jugs of water on the two poles of encased disc magnets of about 3000 gausses, normally for twelve to twenty-four hours. A simpler and more modern way is to have water pass through magnetic discs of up to 10,000 gausses momentarily in order to achieve a similar effect. <br />Health Benefitsright0The reported health benefits of magnetized water are many, including: Acidity and Other Digestive Disorders: Magnetized water reduces excess acidity and bile in the digestive system. It helps to regulate the movement of the bowels expelling all accumulations of poisonous matter. Kidney Stones: The use of magnetic water in urinary and kidney disorders has been documented.  In scientific studies, magnetic water has been prescribed to persons suffering from renal calculus.  An adult suffering from renal stone is advised to drink one-liter of magnetic water per day, while in case of child it is 500ml per day. Results have been very encouraging. Low Blood Pressure and Nervous System: Magnetized water is also very beneficial for nervous disorders and treatment of blood pressure, especially low blood pressure.  It gives a soothing and slightly sedative effect to the nerves, aids in clearing clogged arteries, and normalizes the circulatory system.Asthma/Bronchitis: Magnetized water is effective in the treatment of asthma, bronchitis, colds, coughs and certain types of fevers. Healing of Wounds: Magnetized water has been used as an external aid for washing swollen and sore eyes, wounds, eczema spots, etc. for quicker healing.  In all types of eye infections, north pole magnetized water has healing and anti-biotic type properties.Conclusion: left0The use of magnetized water in the treatment of chronic disease is still in the infancy stage of investigation.  Magnetism is widely used in medical diagnostics, including Magnetic Resonance Scanning devices for detection of a variety of internal organ dysfunction, including cancer. <br />There is very little doubt that our cells react like a tiny magnet throughout the body's universe.  Disturbance of this balance may bring on dysfunction of the body that current tests and investigative tools are simply not sensitive enough to measure. It will be decades before the science of magnetized water is fully understood.  Those in mainstream medicine may discount magnetized water as " quackery" .  Those in the forefront of magnetic research paints a different story.  If one understands and accepts that each of our cells possess a small magnetic field, as many research studies are now supporting, the logical conclusion that magnetic water has the ability to affect our cells must be taken seriously. <br />In the end, the truth probably lies somewhere in between - magnetized water is not a magic panacea or cure-all.  It is also not a total quackery and most likely will turn out to be a health-enhancing medium.  It enhances our health in at least two  ways. First , magnetized water increase the alkalinity of water.  An alkaline pH balances the biological terrain as our body is bathed in a pro-cancer acid environment from a modern day meat heavy diet and pollution.  Magnetized water also leads to a reduction in the cluster size of water molecules, leading to better absorption of water into the cell. <br />  <br />Magnetic Water Conditioning <br />right0Limescale<br />The UK Drinking Water Inspectorate said “Some of these devices have been shown to be effective in reducing the amount of fur or scale that actually sticks to pipes or heating elements. They do not soften water. However, not all products on the market give satisfactory performance. You are advised not to buy one of these devices unless the supplier will agree to a sale or return, subject to satisfactory performance.”<br />Plants and AnimalsProfessor  Israel Lin believes " magnetized water increases the solubility of minerals and therefore improves the transfer of nutrients to all parts of the body, making the organism work more efficiently" .   His findings over a three year trial were:<br />Animals<br />Cows produced more milk; had fewer milkless days; conceived more easily, due to increased health and vitality (better than bovine growth hormone). <br />Calves not only weighed more than the control group, they were leaner! <br />Sheep produced more meat; milk; wool; <br />Geese grew bigger; chickens and turkeys laid more eggs and were prolific for a longer period of time. <br />More dramatically, the mortality rate was reduced with less feed! <br />Plants<br />Larger fruit<br />Increased cumulative yield per unit plot<br />Extended crop season (growth, ripening, fruit-bearing); improved vegetative development<br />improved fruit quality; size, shape, texture, sugar level, Brix; greener leaves<br />Improved growth unifomity; vitality<br />Economy in fertilizer<br />Cleaner piping, dcscaling and reduced scale deposition in piping arid drip heads<br />Professor Klaus Kronenberg says " magnets actually change the nucleus of water and that is the source of its seemingly magical properties. A diet of magnetized water makes cows give more milk, chickens grow fatter and lay more eggs. and cantalupes and other crops grow larger and have better yields with less fertilizer.” <br />Two control groups of 24 piglets, each with normal feeding were compared with two groups of 24 piglets that were getting their water from magnetic treatment.  The latter groups consumed twice as much water and grew an average 12.5 percent faster. <br />Cotton plantings with various irrigation were campared in California.  The cotton plants<br /> irrigated with magnetically treated water grew to larger and denser foliage. <br />A Washington navel orange tree was watered with magnetically treated water.  Each orange became unusually thick and juicy, weighing 20 ounces, on average.  A Eureka lemon tree fed magnetic water carries lemons that grow up to one pound each. <br />
