The Interface of Fluid - Structured Water
April 23, 2012
Dr. Gerald Pollack has been doing research regarding water for over a decade. His book, “Cells, Gels, and the Engines of Life” discusses the role of water in cell biology. I’ve seen statistics saying the human body is comprised of 85% fluid components. I loved hearing one of the presenters at the recent Fascia Congress say, “We are 90% fluid, 10% attitude.” Well said! Water, is in my opinion the most essential factor in terms of good health and the sustainability of life. You would die without water in just a few days whereas you can live without food for days and days. Two-thirds of your body is water but your body actually consists of over 99% water molecules. Dr. Pollack has been a pioneer in explaining why the water molecule is so essential in living matter.
In the context and application of muscle strength, endurance, and structural form, it’s odd that the most common ideas of how muscles contract and sustain function never even mention water.
Dr. Pollack’s book had a central message about defining cells and their sustainability, “If you don't understand how water interacts with the components of the cell, you haven't a clue of how the cell works."
When you think about water it seems simple. H2O, is a basic component so you would think researchers and cell biologists would have the water molecule figured out. Think again. According to Dr. Pollack, research doesn’t have water remotely figured out. We are just beginning to understand the foundational basis of water. Dr. Pollack researches how the stuff inside cells interfaces with water. The proteins, nucleic acids, and salts are the elements that interface with water in the human body and in his research they’ve made some important discoveries which for me are powerful and validating to what I do with MELT.
The question Dr. Pollack addresses is, “What happens when water interfaces with these elements? Does it remain the same? Does it adapt or change?” In asking these questions, Dr. Pollack has uncovered some amazing discoveries and surprises.
His research shows if you have a charged, hydrophilic (water-loving) interface, which most protein, salt, and acids are, millions of water molecules actually line up and become ordered. At the Fascia Congress he gave an example of a single cloud in the sky over the ocean. Why does a single cloud form? Because when it comes to water, “like-likes-like” thus water molecules like to come together.
If you think of the cell as a matrix of proteins, like a grid made up of proteins and nucleic acids, the spaces in between those grids are filled with water.
In the connective tissue system, these spaces are called microvacuoles. Sustaining the volume of these vacuoles is essential in the preservation of everything from your skin down to every molecular component in your body. Without the fluid volume in the matrix, the supportive nature of your connective tissue degrades. This is the catalyst of wrinkles, cellulite, bone loss, muscular inhibition, and joint compression. All cells in your body rely on the interfascial continuum to communicate, transport, and proliferate. Bottom line, when your cells lose water… you accelerate the negative effects we associate with aging. Water is in fact a PART of the structure of every cell in your body.
None of this is a new idea by the way. Traditional science just seems to disregard it and many actually poo-poo the idea that structured water even exists. It's silly really. In addition to the fact that water is interfacing and is ordered, it is also charged. And the water just beyond it is oppositely charged. The question is how are water molecules charged?
"In your cells there are multiple batteries with plus and minus charges, separated. The charge comes from incident radiant energy; light, heat, and ultraviolet. All of these absorbed energies separate the charge. The energy that's coming in from outside builds this charge separation and order. This potential energy fills your cells. I think this energy is critical to understanding of how your cells work."
When I heard him talk about this in detail at the congress it suddenly made me realize why my hands-on techniques of improving the cellular vibration I feel could potentially be obtained. I become the external influence creating something to the affect of electromagnetic radiation sort of like sunlight and infrared heat. When you restructure water in your body, your cells create tissue healing. In a sense, I've figured out to to use my energy to restructure the water in the connective tissue matrix. I think I've also figured out a way to teach others how to do it to themselves.
Hey folks – this is what MELT is all about! It’s about restoring the fluid state of the human body on the cellular level. The MELT Foot Treatment helps your grounding. The scientific theory behind the health benefits seen from this simple practice is that your body absorbs negative electrons from the Earth through the soles of your feet. You can be skeptical but more and more there is a compelling amount of research that is backing my hypothesis today.
When I spoke with Dr. Pollack he supported my idea by validating that the Earth is negatively charged, so when you ground the body, you're connecting your body to a negatively charged supply of energy. The Earth has a greater negative charge than your body, so my theory is you end up absorbing electrons from it.
If this is true, then negatively charged electrons created by MELTing could help increase the structure of the water in your cells—just as it does in Dr. Pollacks research where he shows how water increases in structure when a negative charge is introduced with an electrode. Dr. Pollack is a wealth of information so if this builds your curiosity about water, check out some of his videos on Youtube!
Stay tuned, MELT, and drink water. More on this topic soon!
