Most of us are aware that disease can be dehydrating and that ingesting water can speed recovery. Recent research by Gerald Pollack, PhD, at the University of Washington, suggests that the effect of disease on the water in our bodies actually goes far beyond dehydration. According to Pollack, the presence of disease can alter the fundamental molecular structure of the water contained within each of the body’s estimated 50 trillion cells. This discovery has profound implications for our understanding of illness.
Pollack made his comments during a guest appearance on the Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water syndicated radio show on Voice America, while being interviewed by Sharon Kleyne on the live show of May 5, 2014.
Gerald Pollack, PhD, is a Professor of Bioengineering at the University of Washington. Dr. Pollack’s research focus is the physical make-up of water, and water’s utilization by the human body. His latest book is The Fourth Phase of Water (Ebner & Sons, 2013).
The globally syndicated Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water® radio show, with host Sharon Kleyne, is heard on VoiceAmerica and Apple iTunes. Kleyne is also Founder of Bio Logic Aqua Research, a research, technology and product development center and the only company in the world specializing in fresh water, atmosphere and health. Natures Tears® EyeMist®, a 100% pure water mist, is the Research Center’s global signature product for dry eyes.
Dr. Pollack is best known as the discoverer of “Fourth Phase Water” or “structured water,” in addition to water’s solid, liquid and vapor phases. The Fourth Phase is midway between ice and liquid. There is organized molecular structure as in ice but the water remains warm and liquid. The very thin layer of water that clings to the surfaces of solid substances is Fourth Phase Water. Dr. Pollack believes that the water inside our body cells is also mostly Fourth Phase Water.
Medical literature estimates the water volume of the human body at 60% to 70%. According to Pollack, this estimate includes only free and semi-bound water. When calculated in terms of the total number of water molecules within the body, the percentage grown to 99%.
Dr. Pollack hypothesizes that most of the water inside human body cells is Fourth Phase Water, which he believes has a molecular structure of H3O2 rather than H2O. He also theorizes that water has the ability to move back and forth from one phase to the other depending on outside influences. Water is integral to nearly every function of the body, says Pollack, from cell division to muscle contraction to nerve conductivity.
The presence of disease causes some of the water our body cells to change from Fourth Phase Water back to regular liquid water, Dr. Pollack has concluded. Since cells appear to depend on Fourth Phase Water for optimal functioning, this change can present a serious health threat.
Pollack bases this conclusion on the discovery that while most liquid water is neutrally charged, Fourth Phase Water is negatively charged. Pollack has evidence indicating that healthy human tend to have a stronger negative charge than unhealthy humans. This could be the result of a greater percentage of negatively charged Fourth Phase Water in healthy humans.
While Fourth Phase Water is beginning to become available as a nutritional supplement, Kleyne and Pollack agree that water is the single most important element for health and that the basic building block of Fourth Phase Water is regular liquid water. Kleyne and Pollack recommend drinking at least eight glasses of water each day in addition to all other fluid intake – more if you are in poor health, over 50, have a fever, recently engaged in heavy exercise, live in a particularly dry area or are frequently exposed to solar radiation or indoor air.
