The Hydration Foundation is deeply involved in…..hydration. But, surprise, let’s think big on hydration issues, and hydrating plant crops and even more, soil microbes turns out to be where we can have the biggest impact for planet restoration, more so than even human hydration.
Plant and Crop Hydration
More than 70% of water use on this planet goes to agriculture. Stunning findings are emerging around the use of structured water instead of regular water. By using simple funnels that spin the water on irrigation systems already in place, we now know how to reduce water need by 20 to 30%, retain moisture in the soil longer, use less chemicals, produce better plant health and better crop production. But that isn’t even the Big News.
Soil Microbes Hydration and Soil Carbon Storage
The Big News is that structured water produces better hydrated microbes in the soils than regular water. Structured water delivers electrical charge into the soil, unlike neutralized regular water. This electrical charge improves microbial health and diversity. At least that is what preliminary case studies are indicating, and believe us, we are creating initiatives to get testing done by credible science sources. Imagine, by just a simple shift in the kind of water we irrigate with, we can regenerate soil the world over. And soil carbon storage is one of nature’s best strategies for ecological balance.
Our biggest impact then at the Hydration Foundation? Spreading this information . . .
Structured water not only moistens, but restores efficient, coherent cell-to-cell signalling, not only within a plant, but within a microbial soil community, igniting whole biological ecologies. Tweet that, please, and see our latest Appendix below:

Introduction to the Use of Structured Water in Agricultural Practices
Gina Bria Hydration Foundation, 2019
The use of specialized water in agriculture has long standing traditions in every culture, information passed on generation to generation These traditions persist through something as simple as grandma saying, “Water your garden with rain water.” Savvy science from tropical cultures provided admonitions as complex as the urging to collect mushrooms hit by lightning to add to irrigation water for enhanced crops. Long treks to spring sources or extensive projects to bring irrigation across clay and ceramic-tiled channels, such as those used by Inca and Mayan, all speak to techniques involving specialized water for growth promotion.
Why are we not using these known beneficial strategies in our modern agricultural practices, just as we face formidable water scarcity and contamination issues? Prestigious labs and field studies have confirmed that there are indeed specialized phases of water molecules based on dipole charge position (Pollack, 2014), and more information appears everyday from field studies. Indeed Russian and Israeli work seems to be way ahead of western academic interest.
We hope to change that by providing a brief but compelling overview of research references and case studies below. Information remains scattered across many disciplines and even comes as unpublished or anecdotal evidence. Further confusion abounds because these studies call specialized phases of water by many names, depending on what disciplines or analytical tests are applied.
Tracing these threads through the literature and across fields links structured water, liquid crystalline water, EZ water, ordered water, magnetic water, and energized or living water as fundamentally phase related.
But why isn’t water just water? Wet is wet, isn’t it? How did water ever get so out of alignment? Pressuring water through straighten pipes and chemically “washing” water are two widespread practices that cause water to lose electromagnetic coherence and change water phases from charged to uncharged. According to Dr. Yuri Tkachenko, of the Russian Academy of Sciences and author of over 500 studies including ecology, agriculture, food biotechnology, and wastewater, 60% of the charges of tap or regular “bulk” water molecules are in a chaotic state, manifesting “plus-plus” or “minus-minus.” charges. But in nature, as water freely spins, the water molecule charge is in a “plus-minus” position, literally creating electricity.* Structuring water significantly increases the interaction of dipoles, making available again water’s driving biological dynamism, just as did those ancient techniques.
Structured water restores efficient, coherent cell-to-cell signalling, not only within a plant, but within a microbial soil community, reconnecting inter-dependent biological ecologies.
