What is Structured Water?

The only way the unusual properties of water can be explained is by understanding that water has a unique molecular structure. Certain circumstances, discussed in detail in the book, Dancing with Water, encourage water to form a repeating molecular pattern where water becomes a liquid crystal.  The video below is from a lecture given by MJ Pangman on the liquid crystalline state of water.


Each of the Earth’s minerals has a crystalline form with a specific molecular arrangement. For example, diamonds are crystalline carbon (extreme pressure forces  structural changes as molecules adjust to the pressure). Structural organization changes the characteristics of the substance; some of these changes are obvious—like the visible difference between carbon and diamonds.

Water, too, has a crystalline form—ice.  Yet research reveals water has a second crystalline form – a liquid crystal. Although molecules remain mobile in liquid crystalline form, they tend to move together, like a school of fish. This is structured water—also referred to as organized water, hexagonal water, and liquid crystalline water. Liquid crystals are a unique phase of matter. Like solid crystals, the repeating pattern provides an efficient pathway for the smooth flow of energetic information. Liquid crystals store and transmit information just like solid crystals, yet they are flexible and many times more responsive.

Dr. Gerald Pollack, professor of bioengineering at the University of Washington has provided significant evidence for water’s capacity to form large zones of liquid crystalline/structured water. He has shown that this water has measurably different characteristics including: a negative electrical charge, greater viscosity, molecular alignment, and an enhanced ability to absorb certain spectra of light. He and others have provided evidence that the liquid crystalline phase of water is intimately connected with life.

Much of the water in a healthy human body is in a liquid crystalline/structured state. Many components of the body are also considered to be liquid crystals, including collagen and cell membranes. These tissues work cooperatively with structured water to create an informational network that reaches every cell. It is the liquid crystalline organization of the human body that accounts for the instantaneous transfer of signals and other biological information.

Healthy DNA is also surrounded by structured water; as water loses its crystalline structure (with age and disease), the integrity of DNA is often compromised.  It is structured water that is responsible for the DNA’s stability and for the maintenance of a strong electromagnetic field around it. Youthful DNA, surrounded by liquid crystalline/structured water, has a much stronger electromagnetic field than DNA from elderly individuals.

Molecular structure

Water’s crystalline structure is based on tetrahedral geometry where oxygen atoms form the center of each tetrahedron.  Under ideal circumstances, as water tetrahedra join together, a repeating hexagonal pattern emerges with oxygen atoms forming the vertices of each hexagon. This is the reason liquid crystalline water has also been referred to as hexagonal water.

Hydrogen bonding
Water’s liquid crystalline structure is made possible, in part, by electrostatic forces called hydrogen bonds. Hydrogen bonds are formed by the attraction of positive and negative charges. In the water molecule, the oxygen atom maintains a slightly negative charge while the hydrogen atoms maintain a slightly positive charge. These charges attract each other and link water molecules to form an interconnected, crystalline network.

The Hydrogen Bond (right)
The positively-charged hydrogen atom is electrostatically attracted to the negatively-charged oxygen atom to form a hydrogen bond. This is the foundation for the development of the liquid crystalline water matrix.

Hydrogen bonding in most water is random. There is no long-term pattern to the way the water molecules become interconnected. However, many natural forces can influence the degree and the stability of hydrogen bonding. The electromagnetic forces inherent in the Earth play a role. Organization itself provides a degree of stability, similar to the way interlocking bricks create a sturdy framework, so that hydrogen bonds are not as easily broken. A structured water network is said to be coherent when it can maintain a degree of molecular stability while in motion.

Water’s capacity to store and to transmit information is directly proportional to structure and coherence. The greater the structure (characterized by increased hydrogen bonding), and the greater the coherence (characterized by the degree to which the water can maintain its structure), the greater its capacity to store and deliver signals and other information.

Liquid crystalline/structured water is living water—and it is just the beginning.  More…
