Water Oz Minerals History and more
WaterOz was founded by David Hinkson in 1990. He was motivated to learn about health and proper nutrition after traditional approaches failed to deal with numerous personal health problems. By utilization of a highly technical process, WaterOz turns pure minerals into an ionic, water-soluble solution that the body can completely absorb and use. The product contains no fillers, binders, preservatives, or chemicals - only the purest minerals available on the market and the purest water.
Welcome to WaterOz
Natural healing laws and methods have existed since the beginning of recorded history and probably before. A rapidly growing segment of the population, some 66 percent, has turned to the drugless healing arts and practices and thus spurred renewed interest in nutritional principles, exercise, breathing, iridology, homeopathy, fasting, reflex therapy, polarity work, glandular balancing, herbology, acupuncture, and many other aspects of the holistic approach to health.
Good health entails a high level of physical, mental, and spiritual well being. The key to health and well being is found in maintaining a proper nutritional foundation, as excess or deficiency in any of the primary chemical elements needed in human nutrition could account for most diseases and pathogenetic mental symptoms. Human body tissue can neither be restored nor rejuvenated without proper nutritional support; eating correctly should, therefore, be our number one priority, but the reality of our highly processed fast food society is that today it is very difficult to follow a healthy diet and even more difficult for our body to digest, absorb, and metabolize the foods we eat into useable elements necessary for proper body function. The problem is compounded by the fact that many fruits and vegetables are picked green before they absorb the proper life-giving nutrients (for easier transportation to markets) and that our soil is largely depleted of the essential elements. Nutrient depleted soil = Nutrient depleted food.
Our bodies are not designed to ingest and assimilate foods that have been irradiated, devitalized, are deficient in vitamins, enzymes, fiber, and nutrients, and loaded with additives designed to give them eternal shelf life. Such "food" leads to sickness and disease. Since every disease takes time to develop, eliminating disease takes time, too. Hering’s Law of Cure states: "when we use the drugless healing arts, all illness is reversed and we go through a remission period in which we pick up again our old troubles. Thus gradually, we reverse from the chronic stage of disease toward good health by entering a healing crisis when an acute stage has been reached, often the discharge stage." In the same way our bodies are not designed to ingest and assimilate inferior foods, our bodies do not thrive on pharmaceutical drugs created in a laboratory. Drugs are not structured or evolved for compatibility with the human organism. More often than not, drugs cause side effects that range from uncomfortable to severe to lethal.
In recognition of the fact that we are not getting the mineral nutrition our bodies need from the food we eat, and thus the corresponding need for mineral supplementation, WaterOz was born. Our bodies are made of the same basic chemical elements (minerals) of which the earth is made. Minerals are essential for life and health. Specific minerals facilitate specific functions in the organs and tissues where they are dominantly stored. Each mineral is a conductor or transmitter operating on a specific vibratory frequency. Rarely does any element function alone. Each element achieves its power through bio-chemical combination and relationship with other elements; in other words, our products all work synergistically with our other products and the natural minerals we get from pure food sources.
Remember, as with everything in life, balance is important. Either inadequate or excessive production or supply of the essential nutrients required for proper body function can result in physiological imbalance leading to a wide variety of disease states. The importance of nutritional supplements is widely recognized in the scientific community and among nutritionally oriented physicians, but it is important to remember that nutritional supplementation should be considered part of a long-term health program, not a quick fix. After taking WaterOz products, some people may feel a difference within 48 hours; for others, there is a more subtle change that takes longer to recognize. Ultimately, most people feel increased energy, an improved sense of well being, and get sick less often.
We need to return to a simpler, more natural way of life. Eat plenty of fresh vegetables, fruits, nuts, berries, and herbs. When available, choose organically raised beef and chicken, and fresh fish. Finally, get plenty of fresh air and sunshine, exercise and adequate rest.
Recognition of the importance of the minerals required for perfect health is so new, that few textbooks contain much about it. It is now believed that at least 24 elements are essential to living matter (i.e. deficiency symptoms occur when these elements are lacking which are then resolved when proper balance is achieved). Minerals are essential to physical and mental health. They are a basic part of all cells, particularly blood, nerve, muscle, bones, teeth, and soft tissue. Some are essential for functional support such as the electrolyte minerals (sodium, potassium, and chloride), that help regulate the fluid and acid-base balance of our bodies, while other minerals are part of enzymes that catalyze biochemical reactions, aid energy production, metabolism, nerve transmission, muscle contraction, and cell permeability. Carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins and minerals are the building blocks of our diet and provide the fuel, or source of energy, to maintain life and promote cell and tissue growth and other biochemical support. Minerals contain no calories or energy in themselves, but assist the body in energy production.
Minerals (or elements), come from the earth, and eventually return to the earth, and can most simply be defined as chemical molecules that cannot be reduced to simpler substances. They exist in their inorganic state in the earth, and in their organic state as the basic constituent of all living matter. The main elements essential to health, each of which makes up more than .01 percent of total body weight, are termed macrominerals (calcium, phosphorus, chlorine, potassium, sulfur, sodium, magnesium and silicon). The next group of elements, termed microminerals or trace minerals, each of which constitute less than .01 percent of total body weight, though found only in minute amounts, are also essential to health (iron, copper, zinc, iodine, cobalt, bromide, boron, manganese, selenium, fluorine, molybdenum, vanadium, arsenic and chromium). Other elements contained in the body include some of the toxic metals (lead, aluminum, cadmium, and mercury).
Aluminum - Is it really as bad as we think?
We have heard several times over the past few years that aluminum is toxic to the human body, that it causes Alzheimer’s amongst a variety of other ailments. Is all this hype really true? Much of what we hear today is just a big ball of misinformation that one must filter through to get to the real truth.
Aluminum is actually one of the most abundant elements on the earth. It makes up one seventh of the earth’s crust, and is always combined with some other element. It is a major component of all life, including our food chain. Beans alone have tested an incredibly high 1,640 ppm. It is in everything we eat, but in its natural form. Only when used in excess amounts in this form is it known to be toxic and not for human consumption; the same goes for all trace elements including arsenic, lead, iron, mercury, etc. All are natural minerals that are necessary for human nutrition, but can be toxic in excess amounts.
It is important to get these elements in the proper particle size. The incorrect size can cause serious problems and health issues. A plant will automatically sort and sift through the soil to absorb those minerals and elements that will permeate at the cellular level and "feed" it. When we then eat the plant, those nutrients enter our body and work in much the same way as it did for the plant. Most of the food we partake of today, however, has many of these elements in the improper form and are not the proper size for our own cells to absorb and use.
There have been several studies done on aluminum. Gerhardt Schrauzer, PhD, head of chemistry at UCSD insists that aluminum is essential to human nutrition. The "Harvard University Newsletter" has stated that in all of the scientific research done, none of the reports stated what form of aluminum is poisonous, natural or synthetic.
Any element found to occur naturally in the soil or plants is organic. It was put there long before man ever came along. It is when man refines out these minerals to use in food products, etc., that it changes from an organic and natural form to a synthetic one. All trace elements are needed and even required to sustain human life, but only in trace amounts. Anything in excess is to be avoided whether natural or synthetic.
Metal poisoning, from too much of a mineral, primarily affects the metabolic enzymes, brain and nervous system, but can affect many other bodily functions as well. In addition to the toxic metals, some essential elements, such as copper, iodine, selenium, chromium, iron and calcium, are more likely than other minerals to cause health problems when high levels are present in the body, resulting either from excessive intake or reduced ability to eliminate them. Although your body can manufacture some vitamins, it cannot make minerals. Thus a deficiency of minerals is more common than a deficiency of vitamins. Minerals are harder to extract from food complexes during digestion and there is more "uptake" competition compared to vitamins.
What Makes WaterOz Minerals Unique
WaterOz mineral dietary supplements are the purest minerals available on the market (up to 99.9999% pure) and the purest water (a five step purification process assures absolutely pure water). Nothing more, nothing less. WaterOz, through a complex proprietary process, liquefies minerals to a state where (when dehydrated) they will grow crystals. Each mineral presents unique problems that must be overcome in a different manner than each other mineral. This process duplicates nature’s method of turning minerals from the earth into a form useable by man. When a plant processes minerals from the earth, the minerals end up in the crystalline form necessary in order to be useable and absorbable by the body.
