We discovered that water has four phases, not three. We want to test fourth-phase water’s ability to improve health, scientifically.

Short Summary

Can water cure disease? Throughout history and across all cultures, there are stories of water that can heal. We have identified a possible basis. Through a decade of research at the University of Washington, we have uncovered evidence for a fourth phase of water, beyond the commonly known solid, liquid, and vapor. This fourth phase could be the root of water’s purported healing properties.

To test the health benefits of fourth-phase water, we need to produce that water in some quantity. We have built a microscale device (below) that concentrates fourth-phase of water, while filtering out contaminants. We want to scale up this patented device to produce larger quantities of this water.

Imagine attaching one of those scaled-up devices to your kitchen sink!

This is a "filterless filter” that separates contaminants and produces fourth-phase water. The device has been granted a US Patent 7,819,259. It needs scale-up to produce meaningful quantities of potentially health-giving water.

Many drinking waters contain some fourth-phase water. Those with the most may produce the most health benefits. Testing this hypothesis constitutes a major thrust of this scientific effort. We will evaluate the benefits of pure fourth-phase water (produced by the filterless filter), as well as various other waters deemed likely to have health benefits.

We expect to provide objective scientific data that will let you make an informed choice for optimizing your health.

To learn more about our scientific work on water and health implications, check out the following presentations and interviews:

A TEDx talk describing water’s fourth phase.

Dr. Mercola interviews Professor Pollack on the role of water in health.

A recent talk on fourth phase water, electricity, and health.

What We Need & What You Get

With $100,000 we can build a new prototype filter-less filter device for creating meaningful quantities of fourth-phase water. With $500,000 we can test the health benefits of that water; and with $2 M we can thoroughly evaluate the potential curative benefits of various waters that you might consider drinking.

As a reward for your generosity we offer several tangible perks. However, the main reward is objective and reliable information that can help you make an informed choice about your health.

The Impact

Many claims exist for the health benefits of certain waters. Such claims often engender skepticism because they are made by people with financial interests in those waters.

We have no commercial interest in any of those waters. Our interest is purely science. We will objectively test whether any of these waters can promote health and possibly reverse pathologies. You have the right to know what kind of water is best for your health. We will provide that information.
