He is credited with discovering vitamin C and the components and reactions of the citric acid cycle. He was also active in the Hungarian Resistance during World War II and entered Hungarian politics after the war.
His famous quote says: “Water is life’s matter and matrix, mother and medium. There is no life without water.”
Szent-Györgyi was born in Budapest, Kingdom of Hungary, Austro-Hungarian Empire, in 1893. His father, Miklós Szent-Györgyi, was a landowner, born in Marosvásárhely, Transylvania (today Târgu Mure?, Romania), a Calvinist, and could trace his ancestry back to 1608 when Sámuel, a Calvinist predicant, was ennobled. At the time of Szent-Györgyi’s birth, being of the nobility was considered important and created opportunities that otherwise were not available. (Miklós Szent-Györgyi’s parents were Imre Szent-Györgyi and Mária Csiky).His mother, Jozefina, a Roman Catholic, was a daughter of József Lenhossék and Anna Bossányi.Jozefina was a sister of Mihály Lenhossék; both of these men were Professors of Anatomy at the Eötvös Loránd University. His family included three generations of scientists. Music was important in the Lenhossék family. His mother Jozefina prepared to become an opera singer and auditioned for Gustav Mahler, then a conductor at the Budapest Opera. He advised her to marry instead, since her voice was not enough. Albert himself was good at the piano, while his brother Pál became a professional violinist.
Szent-Györgyi in 1917 Italy
Szent-Györgyi began his studies at the Semmelweis University in 1911, then began research in his uncle’s anatomy lab. His studies were interrupted in 1914 to serve as an army medic in World War I. In 1916, disgusted with the war, Szent-Györgyi shot himself in the arm, claimed to be wounded from enemy fire, and was sent home on medical leave. He was then able to finish his medical education and received his MD in 1917.He married Kornélia Demény, the daughter of the Hungarian Postmaster General that same year.
After the war, Szent-Györgyi began his research career in Bratislava. He switched universities several times over the next few years, finally ending up at the University of Groningen, where his work focused on the chemistry of cellular respiration. This work landed him a position as a Rockefeller Foundation fellow at Cambridge University. He received his PhD from Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge in 1927 for work on isolating an organic acid, which he then called “hexuronic acid”, from adrenal gland tissue.
He accepted a position at the University of Szeged in 1930. There, Szent-Györgyi and his research fellow Joseph Svirbely found that “hexuronic acid” was actually the thus far unidentified antiscorbutic factor, known as vitamin C. After Walter Norman Haworth had determined the structure of vitamin C, and in honour of its antiscorbutic properties, it was given the formal chemical name of L-ascorbic acid. In some experiments they used paprika as the source for their vitamin C. Also during this time, Szent-Györgyi continued his work on cellular respiration, identifying fumaric acid and other steps in what would become known as the Krebs cycle. In Szeged he also met Zoltán Bay, physicist, who became his personal friend and partner in research on matters of bio-physics.
In 1937, he received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine “for his discoveries in connection with the biological combustion process with special reference to vitamin C and the catalysis of fumaric acid”. Albert Szent-Györgyi offered all of his Nobel prize money to Finland in 1940. (The Hungarian Volunteers in the Winter War travelled to fight for the Finns after the Soviet invasion of Finland in 1939.)
In 1938, he began work on the biophysics of muscle movement. He found that muscles contain actin, which when combined with the protein myosin and the energy source ATP, contract muscle fibers.
In 1947, Szent-Györgyi established the Institute for Muscle Research at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, Massachusetts with financial support from Hungarian businessman Stephen Rath. However, Szent-Györgyi still faced funding difficulties for several years, due to his foreign status and former association with the government of a Communist nation. In 1948, he received a research position with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Maryland and began dividing his time between there and Woods Hole. In 1950, grants from the Armour Meat Company and the American Heart Association allowed him to establish the Institute for Muscle Research.
During the 1950s, Szent-Györgyi began using electron microscopes to study muscles at the subunit level. He received the Lasker Award in 1954. In 1955, he became a naturalized citizen of the United States. He became a member of the National Academy of Sciences in 1956.
In the late 1950s, Szent-Györgyi developed a research interest in cancer and developed ideas on applying the theories of quantum mechanics to the biochemistry (quantum biology) of cancer. The death of Rath, who had acted as the financial administrator of the Institute for Muscle Research, left Szent-Györgyi in a financial mess. Szent-Györgyi refused to submit government grants which required him to provide minute details on exactly how he intended to spend the research dollars and what he expected to find. After Szent-Györgyi commented on his financial hardships in a 1971 newspaper interview, attorney Franklin Salisbury contacted him and later helped him establish a private nonprofit organization, the National Foundation for Cancer Research. Late in life, Szent-Györgyi began to pursue free radicals as a potential cause of cancer. He came to see cancer as being ultimately an electronic problem at the molecular level. In 1974, reflecting his interests in quantum physics, he proposed the term “syntropy” replace the term “negentropy”. Ralph Moss, a protégé of his in the years he performed his cancer research, wrote a biography entitled: “Free Radical: Albert Szent-Gyorgyi and the Battle over Vitamin C”, ISBN 0-913729-78-7, (1988),
Paragon House Publishers, New York. Aspects of this work are an important precursor to what is now dubbed redox signaling.
Statement on scientific discovery
Albert Szent-Györgyi, who realized that “a discovery must be, by definition, at variance with existing knowledge,”divided scientists into two categories: the Apollonians and the Dionysians. He called scientific dissenters, who explored “the fringes of knowledge,” Dionysians. He wrote, “In science the Apollonian tends to develop established lines to perfection, while the Dionysian rather relies on intuition and is more likely to open new, unexpected alleys for research…The future of mankind depends on the progress of science, and the progress of science depends on the support it can find. Support mostly takes the form of grants, and the present methods of distributing grants unduly favor the Apollonian.”

Emilio was a prolific and original scientist, a giant whose intellectual legacy needs to be fully assessed for decades to come. He is best known for pioneering the quantum field theory of condensed soft matter, especially water. This is described in an article published in Science in Society #51, which is reposted fully referenced Quantum Coherent Water and Life, together with photographs of Emilio, the most recent taken at our Colours of Water art/science/music festival in March 2013 (http://www.i-sis.org.uk/coloursofwater/). Also reposted is a short video in which Emilio offers his insights on science and music.
Emilio Del’Giudice, quantum-field theorist, tells us how the new quantum physics of water raises physical truth to the level of poetic truth
He has done research at MIT (Cambridge, USA) and at Niels-Bohr Institute in Copenhagen. A theoretical physicist whose main interests are quantum field theory and physics of collective and coherent processes, he has also investigated the structure of liquid water, with particular reference to living matter.
During the 1970s, along with Sergio Fubini, Paolo Di Vecchia and Gabriele Veneziano he was at the center of an active school of theoretical physicist with close connections to Italy (with one of the Italian INFN and MIT financed “Bruno Rossi” exchange programs). He and his co-workers did fundamental work in string theory.
For many years he was involved into quantum field theory and its relations with the physics of collective, coherent processes. He pioneered the quantum field theory of soft matter, focusing mainly on the structure of liquid water; in the latter part of his life together wit Luc Montagnier he also investigated the relation between water and living matter.
He worked at Niels Bohr Institute Copenhagen as well; then becoming a member of the International Institute of Biophotonics, Neuss, Germany.
Dr. Gerald Pollack
Dr. Gerald Pollack, UW professor of bioengineering, has developed a theory of water that has been called revolutionary. The researcher has spent the past decade convincing worldwide audiences that water is not actually a liquid.

Prof. Giuliano Preparata
He attended the High School Umberto I of Rome (the same as Enrico Fermi), and graduated in theoretical physics with honors in 1964.
The following year he was in Florence with a CNR grant, later to become appointed as Professor.
- Read more about Prof. Giuliano Preparata
From 1967 to 1972 he taught at several prestigious universities in the United States, including Princeton, Harvard, and NYU. From 1974 to 1980 he was a staff member in the theory division of CERN, in Geneva.
Preparata dedicated a great part of his scientific activity to high energy physics, giving fundamental contributions to the construction of the standard model, the new synthesis of the subnuclear interactions. In particular, he clarified the nature of the Dirac quantum field of quarks, a fundamental premise for the electroweak unification, and he proposed a solution to the crucial problem of colour confinement in quantum chromodynamics (QCD), based on a non-perturbative analysis of the ground state of QCD.
His analysis reveals the existence of a non-trivial ground state of QCD and constitutes an important step forward in our understanding of interacting quantum fields. From 1987 his attention turned to problems in the field of condensed matter and to nuclear physics, that he tackled armed with the picture of Quantum Field Theory. Preparata discovered that condensed matter systems, when both at sufficiently low temperatures and high densities will spontaneously develop new coherent solutions of quantum electrodynamics (QED). This allowed him to face old problems, like liquid water theory, and new ones, like cold fusion, from a completely new point of view. Moreover, along with Cecilia Saccone (Molecular Biology Professor of University of Bari),
Preparata developed a Markov model of molecular evolution. He published approximately 400 papers in such diverse fields as subnuclear physics, nuclear physics, physics of lasers, superconductivity, superfluidity, liquid and solid water, condensed matter (glasses, colloids, electrolytes, etc.), physics of neutron stars, astrophysics of Gamma ray bursts, and cold fusion. A fierce and stubborn character, Preparata often encountered open ostracism from his peers.
He liked to reconnect his ideas in theoretical physics to those of Realism.
In his last years he taught at the Department of Physics, University of Milan, Italy, where he was most influential on a generation of young physicists. He died in Frascati in 2000.
The Giuliano Preparata Award
In 2003, a series of silver medals were minted to commemorate Giuliano Preparata. In June 2004, this stock of Giuliano Preparata Medals was donated to ISCMNS(The International Society for Condensed Matter Nuclear Science) which administers them through The Giuliano Preparata Award Committee. The “Awards” are presented to those individuals who are making or have made an outstanding contribution in the field of Condensed Matter Nuclear Science(CMNS). The “Awards” are also known as The International Society for Condensed Matter Nuclear Science Prizes. In recent years, the “Awards” are typically present to the recipients at International Conference on Condensed Matter Nuclear Science also known as the “ICCF”.
The Preparata Lecture
Giuliano Preparata had also a strong interest in topics related to Biology, and gave important and enlightening contributions to the field of Bioinformatics. The Italian Society of Bioinformatics (BITS) starts each year its Annual Conference with the “Preparata Lecture”, delivered by a distinguished keynote speaker. Over the years, the Society, thanks to the contribution of the Preparata Foundation, also delivered Travel Grants to young researchers for the participation to BITS Annual Conferences.
Prof. Giuseppe Vitiello
The experimental conditions by which electromagnetic signals (EMS) of low frequency can be emitted by diluted aqueous solutions of some bacterial and viral DNAs are described. That the recorded EMS and nanostructures induced in water carry the DNA information (sequence) is shown by retrieval of that same DNA by classical PCR amplification using the TAQ polymerase, including both primers and nucleotides.
- Read more about Prof. Giuseppe Vitiello
Moreover, such a transduction process has also been observed in living human cells exposed to EMS irradiation.
These experiments suggest that coherent long range molecular interaction must be at work in water so to allow the observed features. The quantum field theory analysis of the phenomenon is presented.

Just Ordinary Water – A Necessity for All Forms of Life by Ingrid Fredriksson
In every living being and organism there is an entire world as amazing as the one we see around us. In our body there are 100 trillion cells (1012), and DNA that extends 10,000 kilometers. The base pairs in our DNA are held together by hydrogen. Maybe the hydrogen bonds in DNA´s base pairs that constitutes our immune system and our consciousness.
There is water in the cells, and between them, and while large molecules have to go through membrane proteins to enter the cells, small molecules like H2O and O2 can pass through the cell membrane without difficulty. In the spaces between the brain cells, at the end of every neuron, the basic unit of a brain cell is synapses, where chemical charges build up.
In the same space dendrites – tiny filaments of nerve endings communicate with other neurons, sending out and receiving their own electrical wave impulses. This, together with the quantum hologram and non-local consciousness, provides an explanation and an exciting developmental phase in the illusion in which we live.
Jacques Benveniste was a French immunologist. In 1979 he published a well-known paper on the structure of platelet-activating factor and its relationship with histamine. He was head of INSERM’s Unit 200, directed at immunology, allergy and inflammation.
- Read more about Jacques Benveniste
Benveniste was at the center of a major international controversy in 1988, when he published a paper in the prestigious scientific journal Nature describing the action of very high dilutions of anti-IgE antibody on the degranulation of human basophils, findings which seemed to support the concept of homeopathy.
Biologists were puzzled by Benveniste’s results, as only molecules of water, and no molecules of the original antibody, remained in these high dilutions. Benveniste concluded that the configuration of molecules in water was biologically active; a journalist coined the term water memory for this hypothesis. Much later, in the nineties, Benveniste also asserted that this “memory” could be digitized, transmitted, and reinserted into another sample of water, which would then contain the same active qualities as the first sample.
As a condition for publication, Nature asked for the results to be replicated by independent laboratories. The controversial paper published in Nature was eventually co-authored by four laboratories worldwide, in Canada, Italy, Israel, and in France.After the article was published, a follow-up investigation was set up by a team including physicist and Nature editor John Maddox, illusionist and well-known skeptic James Randi, as well as fraud expert Walter Stewart who had recently raised suspicion on the work of Nobel Laureate David Baltimore.
With the cooperation of Benveniste’s own team, the group failed to replicate the original results, and subsequent investigations did not support Benveniste’s findings either. Benveniste refused to retract his controversial article, and he explained (notably in letters to Nature) that the protocol used in these investigations was not identical to his own. However, his reputation was damaged, so he began to fund his research himself as his external sources of funding were withdrawn. In 1997, he founded the company DigiBio to “develop and commercialise applications of Digital Biology.”
Benveniste died in Paris at the age of 69 after heart surgery. He was married twice and had five children.
The Tyrolean pioneer of water passed away peacefully in his 83rd year, and was able to “go home” after a very moving life with many highs and lows, as he himself described death.
- Read more about Johann Grander
Johann Grander was practically born with a strong interest in researching and experimenting, as his father was a talented technician and expert in engines. The water pioneer was born on April 24th, 1930 in Jochberg and was very inquisitive and a quick learner from a young age.
His working life as a truck driver all the way to running a gas station and cement-mixer master has passed in a very colorful, varied fashion. In 1978 he finally gave up his profession in order to dedicate himself solely to his research. Only very few people are brave enough to follow their inner voice. Johann Grander did, in fact, do just this.
During those long, often difficult periods of time from the first observation in nature to the discovery of water revitalization his religion, his intuition, and his family all provided him with the power to go on.
With his knowledge, he managed to introduce a new understanding of water, which is followed by millions of people nowadays, over 30 years ago. Healthy living begins with lively, energetic water.
Johann Grander christened his new discovery water revitalization without knowing that he would become the creator of a new term used worldwide. Today GRANDER is a term associated with high-quality water. All over the world GRANDER water revitalization has been installed and used in industrial companies, in the hotel and restaurant business, in agriculture and in particular within private homes. The increasing number of users appreciate the numerous benefits that come from revitalized water.
Johann Grander has been awarded numerous prizes and honored for his service and his life-long work. However, the greatest honor for him has always been helping humans, animals, and nature with revitalized water.
As a nature-loving, religious person he remained modest to the end and always held nature and creation in the utmost respect.
The visionary nature researcher from the small village of Jochberg in the Tyrol was far ahead of this time with his ideas. He recognized connections showing a direction, that were often understood and accepted by the public years later.
He realized very early the importance of passing on his work and knowledge to his children. As a result, his son Johann Grander Jr., who actually assembled the first water revitalization device with his father by the hand, has taken on his father’s know-how for many years now, and he continues the life-long work of the pioneer together with his siblings: Heribert, Johanna, and Stephanie.
Water revitalization is constantly being further developed and will live through future generations, and will continue to be of great importance for humans and nature.
Dr. Luc Antoine Montagnier
Dr. Montagnier is a French virologist and joint recipient with Francoise Barru-Sinoussi and Harald zur Hausen of the 2008 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for his discovery of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
- Read more about Dr. Luc Antoine Montagnier
A long-time researcher at the Pasteur Institute in Paris, France, he currently works as a full-time professor at Shanghai Jiaotong University in China.
In 2009, Montagnier published two controversial research studies that some homeopaths claimed as support for homeopathy. Although Montagnier disputed any such support, many scientists greeted his claims with scorn and harsh criticism.
Awards and honors
The 2008 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine was awarded to Montagnier and Francoise Barru-Sinoussi for the discovery of HIV. They shared the Prize with Harald zur Hausen, who discovered that human papilloma viruses can cause cervical cancer. Montagnier said he was “surprised” that Robert Gallo was not also recognized by the Nobel Committee: “It was important to prove that HIV was the cause of AIDS, and Gallo had a very important role in that. I’m very sorry for Robert Gallo.” According to Maria Masucci, a member of the Nobel Assembly, “there was no doubt as to who made the fundamental discoveries.”
Montagnier is the co-founder of the World Foundation for AIDS Research and Prevention and co-directs the Program for International Viral Collaboration. He is the founder and a former president of the Houston-based World Foundation for Medical Research and Prevention. He has received more than 20 major awards, including the Legion d’honneur (Commandeur in 1994; Grand Officier in 2009), the Lasker Award (1986), the Gairdner Award (1987), King Faisal Foundation International Prize (1993) (known as the Arab Nobel Prize), and the Prince of Asturias Award (2000). He is also a member of the Academie Nationale de Medecine.
Research on electromagnetic signals from DNA
In 2009, Montagnier published two controversial research studies which, if true, “would be the most significant experiments performed in the past 90 years, demanding re-evaluation of the whole conceptual framework of modern chemistry.”
They were published in a new journal of which he is chairman of the editorial board, allegedly detecting electromagnetic signals from bacterial DNA (M. pirum and E. coli) in water that had been prepared using agitation and high dilutions, and similar research on electromagnetic detection of HIV DNA in the blood of AIDS patients treated by antiretroviral therapy.
On 28 June 2010, Montagnier spoke at the Lindau Nobel laureate meeting in Germany, “where 60 Nobel prize winners had gathered, along with 700 other scientists, to discuss the latest breakthroughs in medicine, chemistry and physics.” He “stunned his colleagues….when he presented a new method for detecting viral infections that bore close parallels to the basic tenets of homeopathy. Although fellow Nobel prize winners who view homeopathy as quackery were left openly shaking their heads, Montagnier’s comments were rapidly embraced by homeopaths eager for greater credibility….Cristal Sumner, of the British Homeopathic Association, said Montagnier’s work gave homeopathy ‘a true scientific ethos’.”
When asked by Canada’s CBC Marketplace program if his work was indeed a theoretical basis for homeopathy as homeopaths had claimed, Montagnier replied that one “cannot extrapolate it to the products used in homeopathy”.
Responses, criticisms and interview
While homeopaths claim his research as support for homeopathy, many scientists have greeted it with scorn and harsh criticism.
Because the research used high dilutions, homeopaths claimed it supported homeopathy, even though it didn’t mention homeopathy or use ultra-high dilutions:
On 14 September 2009, Louise Mclean posted on the “Homeopathy World Community” website: “Luc Montagnier Foundation Proves Homeopathy Works”, and on 6 October 2009, homeopathic promoter Dana Ullman responded to a criticism of homeopathy by writing: “And I assume that you all have seen the new research by Nobel Prize-winning virologist Luc Montagnier that provides significant support to homeopathy.” (On 30 January 2011, Ullman responded to Montagnier’s comment on “homeopathy” and “high dilutions” in his 24 December 2010 Science interview by writing an article entitled “Luc Montagnier, Nobel Prize Winner, Takes Homeopathy Seriously”. In the article he repeated his claim’s that Montagnier’s studies supported homeopathy.
Criticism of the claims of homeopaths followed:
On 20 October 2010, Harriet A. Hall responded specifically to these claims by homeopaths: “Nope. Sorry, guys. It doesn’t. In fact, its findings are inconsistent with homeopathic theory… Homeopaths who believe Montagnier’s study supports homeopathy are only demonstrating their enormous capacity for self-deception.” She went on to analyze the studies and pointed out a number of flaws, stating: “…even assuming the results are valid, they tend to discredit homeopathy, not support it…Homeopathy is a system of clinical treatment that can only be validated by in vivo clinical trials.”
In a 24 December 2010 Science magazine interview entitled “French Nobelist Escapes â€˜Intellectual Terrorâ€™ to Pursue Radical Ideas in China”, he was questioned about his research and plans. In the interview he stated that Jacques Benveniste, whose controversial homeopathic work had been discredited, was “a modern Galileo”. When asked if he wasn’t “worried that your colleagues will think you have drifted into pseudo-science?”, he replied “No, because it’s not pseudoscience. It’s not quackery. These are real phenomena which deserve further study.” He also mentioned that his applications for funding had been turned down and that he was leaving his home country to set up shop in China so he could escape what he called the “intellectual terror” which he had been told had prevented others from publishing their results. He believes that China’s Jiaotong University is more “open minded” to his research. There he is chairman of the editorial board of a new journal which publishes his research.
He was also questioned on his beliefs about homeopathy, to which he replied: “I canâ€™t say that homeopathy is right in everything. What I can say now is that the high dilutions are right. High dilutions of something are not nothing. They are water structures which mimic the original molecules.” He did admit that he wasn’t working with the very high dilution levels normally used in homeopathy: “We ï¬nd that with DNA, we cannot work at the extremely high dilutions used in homeopathy; we cannot go further than a 10âˆ’18 dilution, or we lose the signal. But even at 10ˆ18, you can calculate that there is not a single molecule of DNA left. And yet we detect a signal.”
A 12 January 2011 New Scientist editorial described the controversial nature of the research, while also noting how many researchers “reacted with disbelief”, with Gary Schuster comparing it to “pathological science.” Biology professor PZ Myers also described it as “pathological science.” He described the paper as “one of the more unprofessional write-ups I’ve ever run across”, and criticized the publication process as having an “unbelievable turnaround” time: “another suspicious sign are the dates. This paper was submitted on 3 January 2009, revised on 5 January 2009, and accepted on 6 January 2009,” leading him to ask: “Who reviewed this, the author’s mother? Maybe someone even closer. Guess who the chairman of the editorial board is: Luc Montagnier.”
On 25 May 2012, he gave the keynote address at the 2012 AutismOne conference in Chicago. Similar to the controversy he aroused by extolling homeopathy, his latest group, Chronimed, claims to have made a discovery for autistic children that was sharply criticized by scientist Dr. Steven Salzberg.
Legal battle over patent
In 2009, Montagnier became involved in a legal battle with inventor Bruno Robert over the intellectual property rights to the techniques used in the aforementioned research. Robert, who had tried to succeed the company Digibio created by the late Jacques Benveniste, approached Montagnier in May 2005 regarding his work on electromagnetic signals. In November 2005, Robert registered a patent for the process of homing in on a “biochemical element presenting a biological activity through the analysis of low-frequency electromagnetic signals.” This patent was in fact written by Montagnier from results obtained between July and November 2005. A month later, INPI, France’s patents body, received a request for the same patent from Montagnier,which was criticized by the patent examiner on multiple points, including this one:
“…the invention is based on phenomena which contradict the fundamental principle of physics and of chemistry, i.e. the existence of biological or effect without an active molecule and no explanation or theoretical basis makes it impossible at the current time to explain the results obtained.”
Montagnier took Robert to court, claiming that he had intellectual property rights over this process. However, Robert’s lawyer alleged that Montagnier had already admitted that he had not come up with the discovery, as he had signed a contract to use Robert’s technique in 2005. In response, Montagnier’s lawyer said the pair had only signed a “protocol agreement” which was not legally binding.
In July 2009, the court ruled that Robert’s 2005 patent application was ‘fraudulent’, because it had subtracted all of Montagnier’s contribution, which the court estimated at 50%.
Dr. Masaru Emoto
Dr. Masaru Emoto is a Japanese author and entrepreneur, best known for his claims that human consciousness has an effect on the molecular structure of water. Initially Emoto claimed that high-quality water forms beautiful and intricate crystals, while low-quality water has difficulty forming crystals.

Initially Emoto claimed that high-quality water forms beautiful and intricate crystals, while low-quality water has difficulty forming crystals. According to Emoto, an ice crystal of distilled water exhibits a basic hexagonal structure with no intricate branching. Emoto claims that positive changes to water crystals can be achieved through prayer, music, or by attaching written words to a container of water.
Since 1999 Emoto has published several volumes of a work titled Messages from Water, which contains photographs of water crystals next to essays and “words of intent.” In addition to his books, Emoto also sells various water products from his websites and catalogs, which are purported to have healing properties derived from his research and experiments.
Emoto’s ideas appeared in the popular documentary “What the Bleep Do We Know!?”. Like the film, Emoto’s work is widely considered pseudoscience by professionals, and he is criticized for going directly to the public with misleading claims that violate basic physics, based on methods that fail to properly investigate the truth of the claims.
Born in Yokohama, Japan, Emoto graduated from Yokohama Municipal University with courses in International Relations. “In 1986, he established the I.H.M. Corporation in Tokyo and is currently the head of the I.H.M. General Research Institute, Inc., the President of I.H.M., Inc., and the chief representative of I.H.M.’s HADO Fellowship”.In 1992 he received certification as a Doctor of Alternative Medicine from the Indian Board of Alternative Medicines in India, an unaccredited institution.”Subsequently, he was introduced to the concept of micro-cluster water and Magnetic Resonance Analysis technology in the United States, which began his quest to discover the mystery of water”.
Emoto is President Emeritus of the International Water For Life Foundation, a 501(c)non-profit organization based in Oklahoma City, founded in 2005. He has three children with his wife Kazuko.
Emoto’s water crystal experiments consist of exposing water in glasses to different words, pictures, or music, and then freezing and examining the aesthetics of the resulting crystals with microscopic photography.Emoto claims that there are “many differences in the crystalline structure of the water” depending on the type of water source, which were taken from all over the world. For example, a water sample from a “pristine mountain” stream would purportedly show a “geometric” design that is “beautifully” shaped when frozen. On the other hand, “polluted water” sources will supposedly show a “definite distortion” and will be “randomly formed”.
Dr. Massimo Citro
Massimo Citro, M.D., is a medical doctor specializing in psychotherapy and the discoverer of pharmacological frequency transfer (TFF).
He is a member of the Club of Budapest, is the founder and director of the Alberto Sorti Research Institute (IDRAS), and also has a degree in literature.

Convinced homeopath, makes research in the field of non-toxic pharmacological methods, free of side effects and health have always been respectful of the. But few know that Dr.. Citro was one of the early pioneers in the study on Italian food intolerance test through resonance, subject that he recently spoke at the conference The medicine that heals.
Medicine for his research on transfer frequential (TFF) are probably the result of favorable experimental findings that led him towards a much discussed and chat by colleagues from traditional medicine, but he tells heavily and outspoken denouncing a total and expanded educational status of ignorance that does not bring some pride to the entire medical profession.
You can evaluate his research means this movie one of the recent report on Rai2 (The verifier for) that you will find (from 30 th minute onwards).
To the question what are the differences between allergies and intolerances, and why there is so much confusion in the medical field, lui need:
Behind every allergy, as the root cause, there is always at least one food intolerance latent. The allergen is only the last link in the chain: the match that lights the purification process by the accumulation of toxic substances.
The allergy is mediated by cells and antibodies that react immediately to the intrusion of an allergen, creating a relationship of cause and effect immediately.
All this is missing intolerance, which instead is the inability to metabolize a given substance, then it accumulates in the body, which, soon as he can, trigger reactions elimination of toxins (in the form of secretions) or combustion (with inflammation) or in combination of the two (in the form of allergic reactions).
The confusion that exists in the medical field derives first of all because you are using incorrect terminology.
In celiac disease, for example, is an allergy, not an intolerance and there is a big difference between a celiac and a gluten-intolerant!
Also, still, some colleagues are bent on denying the existence of intolerance (known to medicine since the time of Hippocrates) and despite the evidence of diagnostic and therapeutic experiences and results achieved in this field in more than half a century of experimentation in many European countries.
Such as methods for diagnosing allergies?
The only truly effective ones are those based on the principle of resonance between the frequencies emitted by the sample of the food and those radiated by the patient. Measurable with electroacupuncture devices or test kinesiological.
Many times, but not always, some cytotoxicity test is reliable blood lymphocytes. Of course you can not test an intolerance with their methods of allergies, would be like trying to measure a distance employing the balance.
What are the most common diseases related to or caused by food intolerances?
- All allergies, a breath of skin, to any allergen.
- Migraines and chronic headaches.
- Gastrointestinal disorders (constipation, colitis, swelling, gastritis, halitosis, maldigestione …) s Rheumatology (arthritis, Osteoarthritis, tendinitis …).
- Most of the skin diseases and autoimmune diseases.
- Epilepsies spontaneous, tics, panic attacks, irritability and insomnia in general.
- Growth slowed, weight variations unjustified (such as increased weight loss and how).
- Recurrent candidiasis.
- Feeling tired, including water retention, tachicardia and extrasistolia …
Most of the diseases is treatable and most of the times resolvable, identifying the specific intolerances and refrain absolutely from those foods.
Massimo Citro, while going against the current and in contrast with most accredited medical theories, decided to prove that, behind the expensive traditional pharmaceutical research, there is a medicine healthier, ethics and less invasive than the whole of humanity deserves to know and be able to choose.
Massimo Citro is also the author of literary essays and scientific, published:
The Gods and the Days (Ecig, 2003),
No study (Macro, 2008),
The Basic Code of the Universe (Inner Traditions, USA, 2011).
The Science of the Invisible (Macro, 2011) Coauthors, with Masaru Emoto.
Dr. Mu Shik Jhon
Dr Jhon is the worlds leading authority on water science. His last book “The Water Puzzle and the Hexagonal Key”, summarizes over 40 years of scientific research, documenting the structural qualities of water.

In this book, now translated in five languages, the author presents scientific evidence showing that the hexagonal structure of water, is preferred by all biological organisms – that it is involved in the healthy function of the DNA, enzyme reactions and numerous metabolic functions.
In 1986 Dr Jhon officially presented his theory “Molecolar Water Environment”.
He found that the reinstatement of hexagonal water in our body can improve vitality, retard aging and prevent disease. The process of aging is also a function of a body’s loss of hexagonal water from it’s cells.

Viktor Schauberger is a well read but formally uneducated man who lived the greater proportion of his life observing and learning from nature. His insights and applications are so beautiful in their simplicity and in their application so harmonious with nature that his work and ideas deserve far greater recognition.
- Read more about Viktor Schauberger
Viktor Schauberger was an Austrian forester/forest warden, naturalist, philosopher, inventor and Biomimicry experimenter. With his work he made an extraordinary contribution to knowledge of the natural world.
He intuited what we now recognise as the quantum or subtle energy effects of water. His understanding was built up from shamanic and experiential observation of Nature in the untamed Alpine wilderness. His motto: “Observe and Copy Nature”.
He was critical of textbook theory and the arrogance and lack of imagination of ‘experts’ and refused to go to college, believing that he would lose his intuitive gifts.
Schauberger was also gifted with engineering skills which are apparent in his environment-friendly technology and implosive energy devices designed to release people from enslavement to destructive sources of energy.
He is celebrated for his discoveries in the water sciences, in agricultural techniques and in the energy domain – which energies enhance and which harm life.
Schauberger provides us with a comprehensive and holistic approach to understanding Nature. His insights form the foundations of what might be called a ‘science of Nature’.
He found two forms of motion in Nature: outward, expanding flow that is used to break down, and inward-spiralling which Nature uses to build up and energise. We use the first to generate energy, which is why it is destructive to the environment.
Minute changes in temperature affect the outcome of an energetic process. The balance between the attraction and repulsion of polarised atoms is the engine of creation.
Viktor Schauberger vividly described how our disdain for Nature’s ways will bring only environmental catastrophe.
His vision – humanity working within Nature’s laws – is the path we must rediscover, if we are to survive.
Viktor Schauberger Bio
1885 Viktor Schauberger born in Holzschlag, Upper Austria, into a family with a long tradition of caring for the unspoilt Alpine forests.
1914-18 Soon after the birth of his son Walter, Viktor was enlisted in the Kaiser’s army.
1919 Appointed forest warden and gamekeeper.
1920 Became head warden (‘forst meister’) in Brunnenthall-Steyerling, the property of Prince Adolph van Schaumburg-Lippe.
1922 Radical designs of new log flume at Steyerling, which greatly reduced cost of bringing trees out of inaccessible mountains, with no damage to the timber.
1924-28 National consultant for timber flotation, building successful flumes in Austria, Bavaria and Yugoslavia.
1929 First patent applications for water engineering and turbines. This was a very creative time, and for the next few years he did a lot of writing.
1930-32 Experiments with producing electrical energy directly from water, converting degraded into pure water and the prototype of the ‘trout turbine’ based on his observations of a trout’s behaviour in a fast flowing stream. Study of comparative agricultural methods in Bulgaria, sanctioned by King Boris.
1933 Publication of his only book, Unsere Sinnlose Arbeit “Our Senseless Toil – The Cause of the World Crisis”; subtitled ‘Growth through Transformation, not Destruction, of the Atom’. Meeting with Hitler to discuss Viktor’s ideas about power generation and agricultural methods.
1936-7 Arnold Hohl made detailed records of his visits to Viktor Schauberger, with contemporary writings, letters, notes and comments which were published in 1993 in a special edition of Mensch und Technik – naturmass (Humanity & Technology – in accordance with Nature).
1938 Constructs with his son Walter a replica of Lord Kelvin’s Falling Water Experiment of capillary research, generating a voltage of 20,000 volts.
1940 The first Repulsine (flying saucer) built first in Berlin and then in Vienna, where the prototype broke from its mooring and smashed through the factory’s ceiling. Heinkel steals Viktor’s copyright and builds his Schriever ‘Flying Top’ in his Rostock factory.
1943 Himmler gives the SS the task of producing secret weapons. Viktor gets sucked into the Nazi machine against his will.
1944 Schauberger drafted into the SS and ordered (on pain of death) to develop an improved Repulsine and a submarine engine for Germany’s war effort, at the Mathausen concentration camp. All prototypes and working models of the Repulsine subsequently ordered by Field Marshall Keitel to be destroyed on the collapse of the German armies.
1945 Invading Russian intelligence team removes Viktor’s research papers and his models from his Vienna flat. Held for a month in ‘protective custody’ by American forces in Austria who decided he was not to be deported to the USA, as were countless other German atomic scientists, engineers and physicists. Viktor starts work on his Klimator, for domestic air conditioning.
1945-50 Focuses on research to increase soil fertility and agricultural production.
