Renegade Water Secrets with David Wolfe, author of the new book Amazing Grace and Eating for Beauty and many others.
Kevin: Now, you have a spring where you spend a lot of your time. Tell me a little bit about what you’ve done to get that water to you and to provide you with the best water that you can get.
David: Okay, well my assumption is that water is a living thing. It likes certain things and it doesn’t like certain things. It likes to move in certain ways and it doesn’t like to move in other ways. One of the things we know about is that when we run the water through too many straight pipes, the water becomes agitated and you hear this when you turn on a faucet and it goes [making noise of a faucet messed up]. You know, where the whole pipes shake in the wall, that’s because water’s agitated because it’s being forced into an unnatural form. Water likes to meander, it likes to go back and forth like a snake and what we’ve done, we’ve taken that understanding and incorporated it into a way that we pull the water our of our spring and bring it to the house. I’m on a spring; I’m not on a well. I’m not on an artesian well. It’s just a spring. We have a building on top of that pool but that pool is the spring.
It was literally opened up or pushed back with wood about 40 years ago and then a building was put on top of it and then a whole pump system was put in that building to draw the water out. We pull that water out, it goes through spiral pipes as water likes to spiral, it goes in a line, meanders through the ground, underneath the ground instead of being a straight tube, it’s a meandering tube that’s about two feet buried under ground that brings it all the way up to the house, comes into the house, goes through another spiral pipe, goes into a cartridge filled with local crystals because water likes silica. Crystals and silica are connected. That’s what crystals are made out of. Then it comes through all the different outlets. Let’s say it’s in the shower or its on the sink in the kitchen and when it comes out we have special faucet heads that have the spiral pattern on them so that when you turn the water on, there’s never any [making noises of pipes] or the high pressure problems because the water is very calm. It’s been spiralized, it’s happy, been treated with crystals and it kind of comes out in almost like a spiral pattern. It’s absolutely gorgeous. That to me is absolutely one of my favorite things about being at home is just drinking that water.
Kevin: Does spiralizing do anything to it molecularly or at a structural level?
David: Yes it does and the evidence is indicating that, for example, if you take a piece of wood and you throw it on a fire, at a molecular level you are changing that wood — you’re turning it into ash. Well, on the other side of the spectrum, the exact opposite type of phenomenon is when we spiral air, water or any medium and what happens is that through spiral action, let’s say it’s a tornado. Let’s say it’s a waterfall. Let’s say it’s water going down the drain. When you have that spiral motion, certain elements in the water become active and certain elements in the water become passive. For example, if we burn something, oxygen becomes reactive. If you burn a piece of metal, you know if you burn a bunch of wood, the pieces of metal in there, the oxygen will oxidize that metal and turn it into a rusty piece of metal. On the opposite end, hydrogen becomes activated when we’re dealing with spiralizing water and silica becomes activated and the ormus elements or the high energy particle elements become activated but oxygen becomes passive and therefore less aggressive so therefore, when we spiralize water we increase it’s antioxidant potential and decrease the free radical potential because we want oxygen to be passive, not reactive.
Kevin: And by increasing the hydrogen, then you increase the antioxidant properties.
David: Right, because hydrogen is the main antioxidant. I mean the word hydrogen. Look at that word, the word hydro, which is water and gen which is generator or water generator. Once we have hydrogen, if we have high hydrogen content, automatically the oxygen is attracted to it and we have water droplets. So the idea in our drinking water is we want to have as much hydrogen as we can find naturally. For example, spring water has a huge amount of hydrogen in it and then that hydrogen, especially if it’s been vortexed, becomes a super powerful antioxidant. In fact, it’s the best antioxidant, because it knocks out free radical oxygen by turning it back into water.
Kevin: What are some of the tools that you’re using to spiralize the water?
David: Great question. I use several different tools. One of them is I have pipes in my line. The pipes that bring the water in the house have a spiral inside them so the water is forced into a spiral action which it actually likes. So that’s one way. Another way is we have two different devices that will just spin the water in a vortex. So we’ll put the water into a pitcher, we’ll put the top on it, the top has a little paddle that spins around and it just spins the water just like if you were spinning the water in the pitcher with a spoon. You just spin it and then that will go for three minutes or so and then that vortex is the water.
I’ve also got the Vitalizer Plus, which does a similar type of thing. The vitalizer plus has magnets in it. That’s something I don’t really like, because I think it changes the water significantly but probably not for the worse, it’s probably for the better but you know, I like my water exactly as it is. But anyway, that device is also a spiralizer. It vitalizes things up by spinning them into a big giant vortex and that’s really cool.
What else do I use? Another thing I do is when I’m making a big pot of something –- you know, we do a lot of the medicinal mushrooms that grow on the trees up here at my house. We make a big pot of tea of that. I will spin it one way for a minute and then spin it the other way for a minute and then spin it one way for a minute and this is an old trick from European folk herbalism that improves the quality of your tea or water for the reasons we’ve just discussed.
Kevin: I never knew that. That’s pretty interesting. A lot of people don’t have spring water, but I don’t want to move away from that right away. The people who haven’t experienced true spring water, how can someone go out and find true natural springs? What are you looking for? How do you know it’s natural and not just a cesspool? What are you looking for?
David: For everybody listening right now, one of my goals for even speaking is that you do that. That you go out. That’s one of my goals for you, that you go out and you find springs. What you’re going to do is you’re going to talk to locals. You’re just going to find out where the springs are. Now, they’re always up in the mountains usually and therefore, you’re going to see if you can find a place where you can kind of drive up there and fill up your bottles right there at the spring.
Spring water is located up at the top of the mountains for reasons that are probably too complex for me to get into right now but they do come up in the tops of mountains and thus violate everything in physics that we’ve been taught which is how come the water doesn’t come at the bottom of the mountain, how come it’s coming up at the top of the mountain.
How can the water actually be levitating up to the top of the hill and coming out there? That doesn’t make sense. Doesn’t gravity push everything down and how can water be coming up at the higher elevations rather than at the lower elevation? This is one of the great mysteries of water and its one of the reasons why you do want to have spring water because spring water is literally, not just imaginatively, but literally levitated and therefore, adds buoyancy and it brings that juice back into your joints which is a really critical part of nutrition and silica in the high energy particles are the reasons why that happens.
Kevin: When you’re looking for springs, I know plenty of people who are hiking and they bring their iodine tablets and they drop it into the water, what’s the difference between water from a spring or water from a stream if you’re hiking like that? Do you need iodine or anything like that?
David: That’s a great question. First of all, spring water, the type that you’re looking for is the spring water that’s very cold. That would be, for example, colder than 50 degrees. It’s actually colder than the ground which is completely impossible according to normal physics because the water is coming out of the ground, the temperature coming out of the ground is usually around 58 degrees but the spring water is 45 degrees. That’s a real strong indicator. If you have real cold water coming out of the ground somewhere then that’s the water you want to drink. You’ll notice if you test it that that water is bacteria free. Stream water may have bacteria in it because there might be goats pooping in it. You just never know. You’ve got to be a little bit careful of that especially if you’re immune system is not acclimated to drinking wild creek and stream water, probably it’s a good idea to put a little oxygen in the water or put a little bit of iodine in the water or something. Cayenne pepper is what I’ve used before and cinnamon. It’s very good at killing most all organisms that contaminate water and that’s what I use when I hike. From there you can drink the water.
Kevin: I imagine you use that when you travel as well?
David: Yeah, I travel with those things. They’re exceptionally important for water purification and also just keeping the system clean.
