Continuing Positive Results at Home . . .
From my own research, as well as from everything I’ve read, structured water is healthy to drink, and brings many benefits to those who do so.
I am personally noticing better sleep, better focus, and I am definitely getting more done than I was before I started drinking it, which is a huge bonus. My eyes have continued improving, and I no longer feel like they have a coating of gritty gel at the end of the day. Obviously, this is a godsend.
Is Structured Water a Chelating Agent?
According to some sources, structured water seems able to help the body in ridding itself of toxins, and many therefore advise starting slowly, drinking two to four ounces at a time to start, until your body adapts, thus avoiding a “healing crisis” that comes from removing toxins too quickly.
This suggests that structured water may act as a chelating agent, similarly to chlorella or kombucha, which makes sense when taking into account further advice to store it only in glass, stainless steel or lead-free ceramic containers, and never to allow it to sit in plastic.
One source goes so far as to say that because structured water pulls toxins out of your body, it will do the same thing with plastic, and thus becomes filled with toxic petrochemicals the longer it sits in plastic. I have not confirmed this, but plastic does contain numerous toxic chemicals, so I am erring on the side of caution, and either using structured water immediately, or storing it in glass.
Structured Water Acts a Lot Like Soft Water Without the Added Salt
There are also reports from many sources that structured water will remove buildup in your pipes and appliances over time, as well as leaving dishes and laundry cleaner, which improves with time. When installing a whole house unit, it is advisable to empty the water heater tank of any sand, gravel or other calcified build-up, in order to avoid off tastes and off smells in the water, which the structured water will otherwise dissolve over the course of the first month or so.
This is similar to advice given when installing a water softener, and as noted before, structured water does share a number of characteristics with softened water, even though no salt has been added. As I previously mentioned, structured water feels “wetter” than water from the tap, and seems to behave more like naturally soft water than like hard water.
