Can Water Cure Disease?

Can Water Cure Disease? | Pedagogy and Human Sciences | Scoop.it

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.

 

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 are seeing some mainstream scientific research here that has the potential of reducing our dependency on pharmaceutical (chemical) medicine.

 

Something that's well worth supporting, I would say.

Have been hearing on and off about other states of water. One doesn't even freeze during/after magnetization. I think Professor Gerald Pollack's findings and invention are worth supporting on IndieGoGo.

Arun Shrivastava's curator insight, November 28, 2013 12:46 AM

Fourth state of water, and a few months ago I posted a scientific demonstration on water having memory. In Ayurved, there is a line of treatment called 'hydro-therapy." In Sanskrit it is called "USHA PAANA CHIKITSA" and is known as powerful remedy for restoring health.

A higher education avalanche is coming, says new report - University World News

A higher education avalanche is coming, says new report - University World News | Pedagogy and Human Sciences | Scoop.it

Higher education requires “deep, radical and urgent transformation”, says a just-published report from the UK’s Institute for Public Policy Research. A new phase of competitive intensity is emerging, technology is changing and the traditional university is under pressure from, among others, private providers and MOOCs.

In the report, An Avalanche is Coming: Higher education and the revolution ahead, authors* Sir Michael Barber, Katelyn Donnelly and Saad Rizvi write that last century’s models of higher education are broken.

“The next 50 years could see a golden age for higher education, but only if all the players in the system, from students to governments, seize the initiative and act ambitiously. If not, an avalanche of change will sweep the system away.”

Nice visual shared by Susan Bainbridge illustrating different aspects a teacher should be building to represent themselves as learners.  I would go one step further and say students should be following the same structure.
