Definition. Open water is water that has a larger bond angle than other types of water.  The bond angle is the angle between the two hydrogen atoms in the H2O.  This gives it special properties.




1. A wetting agent.  This means it makes water more able to carry nutrients, oxygen and everything else into the cells of the body.  This property also assists the removal of all waste products out of the cells.  This is a great benefit.

It works by an osmotic mechanism.  This means that it exerts an osmotic pressure that tends to move substances in and out of the cells better.

2. Disinfectant.  This water does not support pathogenic organisms well at all.  The main reason is that it vibrates at a very high rate, too high for most bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites and other harmful micro-organisms to survive within.

Also, the water is low in minerals, and this discourages microbial growth.

3. An amplifier. Open water appears to be able to amplify the effects of many nutrients, hormones, minerals, and even drugs.  This also has to do with its property of making water wetter and to be a penetrating agent.  Other mechanisms may also cause this.

4. De-densification or etherealization of the body.  Open water can help move the body to a less dense state.  This is somewhat different from just removing toxic metals and toxic chemicals from the body, with which this water helps, as well.


Should you drink it?  We only recommend drinking open water by itself if you have been on a development program for about 40 years.  For details, read The Stages Of Development.  The reason is it is too low in minerals. 

However, everyone can benefit their health by adding about 10-12 drops to every liter or quart of your regular drinking water.






Open water has a peculiar property that will assist development.  It pulls subtle energy toward itself.  Placing one or more bottles at your feet will cause energy to move from the head to the feet, and this speeds up development.




The best source we know of is to buy some Ice Age Glacial spring water.  This is an open water.  It is available from and perhaps other websites.




1. At your feet while sleeping:  Place one to three bottles about six inches away from where your feet are when you sleep. 


- If you are over about 5’10”, put the bottle(s) on a chair or small table placed at the foot of the bed.

- If you are less than about 5’10”, put the bottle(s) under the covers at the foot of the bed.

- The bottle(s) must be at or near the height of your feet.

- Ideally, do not place the bottle on the floor, unless your mattress is very thin and you sleep very close to the floor, as on a thin pad.

- If you use more than one bottle, put the other one or two directly behind the first one.  There is little or no benefit to using more than 3 bottles.


2. At your feet during the day: If you sit in one place for hours during the day, place one, two or three bottles of open water about six inches away from your big toes while you sit at your work desk, or while sitting anywhere.  The bottles can sit on the floor.  If you use more than one, put the second and/or third one directly behind the first one for a slightly more powerful effect.


What you will feel.  A few people do not feel anything.  Many, however, will soon feel a slight tingling sensation in their toes or feet when they put the bottles near their feet.  This is a movement of subtle energy downward from the head to the feet that helps speed up development.

Stopping and starting: If you remain with the bottle or bottles close to your feet for a few hours, the tingling sensation will continue for a few hours and then suddenly it will stop for an hour or so.  Then it will resume again.  It will stop again after a few hours for an hour or so and then resume.

This is normal and is how the water functions in this application.  The action of the water stops after a time in order to allow the body to “catch up” with some of the effects of the water.




            1. For Drinking.  Put 10-12 drops in a liter of spring or tap water.  You may also add it to all other beverages, as well.

Do not drink open water as your main water source.  The reason is that it is very low in minerals, with only 4 PPM of total dissolved solids.

In other words, it is almost a distilled water.  The lack of minerals will cause demineralization of the body and perhaps leaching of minerals from the body, as well.


2. As a carrier agent: Open water will carry other substances into your body very efficiently.  In this regard, it is like DMSO (dimethylsulfoxide), a more toxic chemical that has this property as well. 

Therefore, if you take liquid remedies of any kind, you may add a drop of open water to the product, and it will be carried into the body faster and more efficiently.


3. As a carrier agent topically:  Open water will also move creams, lotions, and salves into the body through the skin faster.  You may add a drop or two of open water to the cream or product you wish to apply to your skin before putting the product on the skin.


4. As a carrier agent for vaginal implants, coffee enemas, eye drops or nose drops:  Adding a few drops of open water to an enema or VCI will make the procedure more effective.


5. For plants: Open water is fabulous for all plants.  It will not hurt any of them.  Just add a few drops of it to your bucket or watering can before you water your plants.  This will help the plants absorb more nutrients from the water and from the soil in which the plant lives.


6. For animals: Open water is excellent as a carrier agent for all animal food, and medications.  Just add a few drops of it to all pet food and liquid medications for animals.  You may also add about five drops to a dog or cat’s water bowl.  This will help the health of the animal.




1. Do not use open water as your daily drinking water.  It is too low in minerals and will eventually demineralize the body.

2. Store open water in a glass, plastic or ceramic container.  Metal containers are not as good.

3. Do not sleep with a jar of open water near the upper part of your body, such as the shoulders or head.  This will move subtle energy upward from your feet to your head, which is the opposite of the proper flow of subtle energy.

4. Ideally, do not store open water in containers with rubber or silicone seals.  The water will pick up odors from the seal and will not taste as good.  However, the water is still perfectly good.

5. For babies and children.  Open water is not for children and babies to drink because it is too low in minerals.






Bond angle. Water is a triangular molecule made of two atoms of hydrogen and one atom of oxygen.  This is a very unique arrangement in which the hydrogen atoms repel each other, creating a peculiar phenomenon called the bond angle or hydrogen bond angle.  Most water has a bond angle between the two hydrogen atoms of about 94-100°.

Open water has a bond angle between the hydrogen atoms of about 110-114°.  Thus the water molecule itself, or H2O, is more open, for which reason it is called open water.  This is the secret to many, though not all of its properties.


            A reduced boiling point and easier to dissociate into hydrogen and oxygen.  This interesting property has many possible industrial uses, and is used in the body as well to hydrate and oxygenate it better.  In other words, it is possible that the body can dissociate the water molecule to free an atom of oxygen much easier with this water.




            Ice Age water will keep well in the plastic bottle in which it comes for about three years.  After that, it may not work and is best thrown away and replaced with a fresh bottle.

If you store open water for more than about two months, it may lose a little of its ability to pull energy downward.  In this case, exposing the bottle to direct sunlight by putting it outside for about one minute can make the water work better for pulling energy downward.  However, it will work even without exposure to sunlight.

You could also place a bottle of it inside your house in a window with sun exposure.  In that case, leave it in the sun for 5 minutes.




What to drink.  Most all adults need to drink at least three quarts of water daily.  Sparkling or carbonated water is okay.  Other beverages do not count.  Children need proportionately less depending on their weight and size. 

The best types of water are either spring water or carbon-only or sand-only filtered tap water.  The best type of water to drink is quality spring water.  Either buy it at the grocery store or health food store, or visit  There you may find a spring near you where you can get spring water free of charge.

The next best type of water is usually carbon-filtered tap water, even if filtered with an inexpensive filter such as a Britta pitcher filter, sold in the supermarkets.  The trouble is that tap water is loaded with toxic metals and chemicals in some areas, so it is not quite as good as a quality spring water.  Also, in some nations, tap water is not safe to drink at all.

Do not worry about the plastic jugs in which spring and distilled water are sold.  I am familiar with the problem, but it is not a major issue, in my experience.  Plastic poisoning from reverse osmosis water is far worse.


Drinking water to avoid.  Avoid all reverse osmosis water, “drinking water”, “purified water”, Aqua Fina, Dasani and others made with reverse osmosis water.  This type of water does not seem to hydrate the body as well.  It appears that the plastic RO membrane damages the water in some way.  Also, one gets plastic toxicity from the RO membrane – much worse than any residue from drinking spring water from plastic bottles.  Also, RO water is demineralized and will remove minerals from the body and not provide any.

Avoid distilled water.  The reason is that it is lacking minerals, which everyone needs today. 

Avoid artificially alkalinized water from alkaline water machines and other sources.  The water is usually passed over platinum plates, and platinum is one of the most toxic metals in existence.  Alkaline water is also too yin in macrobiotic terminology.  This is okay for a short time, but not for more than a month or two.

Many people are slightly dehydrated today.  Either:

1. They do not drink enough spring water or carbon-filtered tap water.

2. They drink RO or other water that unbalances them or does not hydrate them well.

3. They consume substances that cause dehydration.  These include any alcohol, sugars (including fruit or juices) and/or caffeine.
