“water is H2O, nothing else”
The quality of tap water is always under discussions. There are so many pro et contra regarding necessity of filtering (actually clarifying) tap water that probably you could say more than it is written here:) The most popular comment against filtering is that water contains minerals that we need for our body. Well, as it is written above, “water is H2O, nothing else”, we know that from chemistry course at school, right? If we say “water”, it should be water, isn’t it? Two molecules of hydrogen and one molecule of oxygen. If there is something diluted in it, it means we have an aqueous solution, we can’t call it “water” anymore. In fact, all the essential minerals should be consumed through natural food, … why with water?
Lets l’earn from the filters’ descriptions to see the list of possible pollutants in water, what is written there? Just few sentences here: a) mechanical filter removes small fractions of solid impurities larger than 20 microns that are found in tap water, where they often get in during the transfer; b) carbon filter removes up to 99% free chlorine, organic impurities, phenol, benzene, some pesticides, also improves taste and smell of water; c) activated carbon filter removes up to 99% of chlorine, organic impurities, some pesticides, iron compounds and hydrogen sulfide, heavy metals (arsenic, cadmium, lead, mercury), phenol and benzene, improves taste and smell of water. You see, business is always related and acts according to market demands. Think about it.
How to improve the quality of water without any specific costly tools? Lets turn to Nature: crystal clear water is a result of snow melting process in mountains, we all know it. From a chemical point of view, water freezing and further thawing both change a structure of water, organizing it in a most ordered way. From holistic point of view, water freezing and further thawing provides absolutely clean water without any “information” written in it. I l’earned that from French immunologist Jacques Benveniste, who went deep into topics of water bioactivity and “water memory”.
One my colleague from pharmacy always was freezing and then drinking thawed water. Her eyes were so bright and shiny, her skin was amazing, intellection and mood were always at a high level and she was 60. At that time, approx. 10 years ago I started to experiment with thawed water. However, as s chemist, I was not satisfied with a quality of water I’ve got. The process of making my thawed water had many disadvantages, as water by itself too.
Great news are that now I can share with you the procedure, how to make it correctly and professionally. It took me 3 months to start making it absolutely crystal clear, with good smell and fresh taste. Any time I drink it, I feel like being in mountains. Right now, me and my family use only Crystal clear water for drinking, teas, soups or other kitchen demands.
How to make it:
- Pour tap water in a thick glass vessel, which is suitable for freezing and freeze
- After 24 hours check it in a freezer: a white ice conglomerate should be clearly visible and all water should be turned into ice
- Let ice to thaw on a counter, putting a plate under a vessel
- After water has thawed, filter it through a regular filter like Brita, using an additional paper filter to keep a regular filter from excess of visible sediments
- Keep a day-amount of Ice-ice water in a glass vessel at a counter, and an additional portion at a glass vessel in a refrigerator.
a) I made this experiment with Brita-filtered water too. The same white precipitate appears. It means, my domestic filter does not cope with these precipitates. Lets see later how it works with integrated filters (I still do not have it:))
b) Glass vessel suitable for freezing (step 1) is essential in this procedure. I tried with high quality silicon molds – silicone smell in water appeared, that means silicon fillings interact with water during the process. I haven’t try with plastic bottles, even with high quality plastics, because plastic fillings are ready to solve in water during any environmental changes. No no, we avoid plastic and water contact 99% these days
c) After ice fully thaws (step 3), I filter it immediately. Not more than 1 hour should pass, because at room temperature those precipitates could dissolve in water repeatedly.
