Chemical Secrets of Copper water: Immunity, Fertility

Dear members,

In a previous article on Ushapan, the author had indicated that

copper water needs more attention later. Here are the results:


Copper can destroy undesirable Virus and bacteria. It is interesting

that ayurveda new this, when bacteria were unknown to science.

Ayurveda recommends storing water in Copper Vessels. Ancient

Egyptians used Copper Vessels to keep water fresh. Even today,

management of Siva temple at Rameswaram uses large sized Copper

vessels to store water brought from river Ganges to offer to lord

Siva. Water, stored thus, stays fresh for years together. Copper

vessel can be the answer to kill the `E-Coly' bacteria which causes

food poisoning, according to Scientists. British scientists are

carrying out research on copper and concluded that copper ions kill

these harmful bacteria, a capability not found in any other metals

including gold. It is interesting to see that a research group from

Southampton university found that Coly 157 bacterias can live happily

in stainless steel vessels for months together, while copper vessel

at room temperature can kill them in just four hours. At 4 deg

centigrade, it takes 14 hours. At 20 deg centigrade, in the stainless

steel vessel , those bacterials live for 34 days, while in brass

vessel they live for 4 days.


Thus if one uses copper vessels for storing water in factories,

shops, hospitals, restaurants, we can get rid of the risk of these

food poisoning bacterias. Though stainless steel is much used due to

its shine, apparent hygenic cleanliness, copper is more useful

material for vessels. In Scotland alone, in 1997, 500 were sick by

water poisoning by E-Coil bacteria, out of which 20 died.


Copper water can be prepared in two ways. Fill a clean copper vessel

with water and boil on low heat till water quantity reaches to 50%.

Alternatively you can use a glass vessel and add copper scrap, copper

wire bundle etc so that water absorbs more copper due to increased

exposure area. When copper dissolves in water, water becomes ionic

(electrolytre) as can be ascertained by its pH measurement. That is

the reason the micro-organisms get killed in such water. Those who do

not have time to look after water boiling, can keep water stored in a

clean copper vessel and drink after 8-12 hours. Storing for more

period causes no harm, but concentration of ions gets saturated. Care

must be taken to keep the inside of the vessel shining by using

special cleaning powders. One such powder is available in

Maharashtra, India under the brand name "Pitambari". However, hands

must be protected by a scrub if one uses this powder. Alternatively,

tamarind can be used safely. Due to copper water mania, nowadays

special copper flasks which can be stored in fridge are available in

Indian Market. However, copper pots should not be stored in fridge,

drink at room temperatutre. "Sharp" quality of copper water gets

destroyed by fridge.


Copper and Fertility

Drinking copper water has another advantage. This was pointed out by

Andrew Saul, Contributing Editor for the Journal of Orthomolecular

Medicine, while speaking on fertility, conception and family

planning. In his own words,


" If you want to conceive, try having the man take megadoses of

vitamin C for a few weeks prior. At least 6,000 milligrams a day,

and as much as 20,000 mg/day guarantees very high sperm production.

Divide the dose throughout the day for maximum effect. And that

effect is what, exactly? More sperm, stronger sperm, and better

swimming sperm all occurred, at even lower daily C doses, in a

University of Texas study. Take more C and you'll make vast

quantities of super sperm. You think this won't work? Have I shown

you my baby pictures?


Here's more: zinc and plenty of it helps the prostate and increases

seminal fluid production. There is a scientific literature a mile

long about zinc and male fertility. About five to ten times the RDA

will do it. That is approximately 50 to 100 mg of zinc daily. For

best absorption and best results, divide the dose into two, or better

yet, four doses. Zinc gluconate is well absorbed, and zinc

monomethionine better still. These are available at any health food

store without a prescription.


A lot of wussy nutritionists will tell you that such levels of zinc

are harmful. Truth is, most men don't even get the puny RDA (Recommended Daily

Average) of zinc, set laughingly at 10 or 12 milligrams. Zinc lozenges for the

common cold are many times higher than this. Up to 550 mg of zinc has been

safely given daily for a few weeks.


Continued high doses of zinc can produce a copper deficiency, and

sometimes a copper deficiency anemia. This is very easy to

compensate for. To begin with, most Americans have copper water

pipes in their homes. Drink a glass or two of cold water first out

of the tap every morning and you'll get copper. Secondly, eat more

raisins and other copper-high foods. Third, take a multiple vitamin

(as you should be doing anyway) with copper in it. Finally, do what

those sexpots in India have been doing for thousands of years. Buy a

copper metal cup, fill it with cold water at bedtime, and drink it

first thing the next morning. Make this Ayurvedic routine your

routine, and start knitting booties.


I have worked with supposedly "infertile" people who have

tried "everything" to conceive a child. Nutrition, especially the

vitamin C part, is not even mentioned in any fertility textbook I've

ever seen. I've received some nice postcards from couples who have

taken an odd idea or two of mine and gotten pregnant within a month

or two. It is a wonderful feeling, by the way, to have helped them

bring a soul to the Earth."




The author of this post recommends eating raisins or dates to his diabetes

patients also. The words of Andrew Saul clearly point how copper

water can minimise copper deficiency anemia. It is also seen that

copper water becomes "sharp" and gets readily absorbed by our body,

reaches cells in about 45 minutes. Hence, it is generally recommended

that after Ushapan, one should give a gap of 45 minutes before taking

tea or coffee. Copper water is also recommended to people suffering

from vitiligo, where it helps formation of melanin.


After starting on copper water, many do not need cold water to satisfy the

thirst. With yoga, pranayama and other breathing techniques, senses become so

sharp that taste and sharpness of each water can be sensed adequately. Though

copper water is slightly ionic, it does not cause gastric acidity to increase.

On the other hand, due to increased Agni and digestion, it helps in such cases.

I have found these articles quite interesting. I was searching for

vitamin c and zinc products online, and came across a site that offers

Copper Chelated Tablets. Each tablet contains (20 mg.) of Copper Amino

Acid Chelate equivalent to (2 mg.) of elemental Copper. Is this amount

sifficient for problems with hypertension or mental stress? thank you.

Ayurveda is an ancient science, and strictly speaking, modern

medicines, suppliments will be difficult to study for an ayurvedist,

unless their herbal contents are known. Since this tablet contains calcium,

potassium, copper, chromium etc it may cure a disease x, is the

thinking of modern medicine. Ayurvedists and herbalists look at herbs in a different

way; they will see overall effect of a herb rather than the effect of

its chemical ingredient, they will never separate active ingredient. It

is symphony of all ingredients acting together which gives the final cure without

side effects.


If your question is rephrased as "what herb, yoga, lifestyle change

ayurveda recommends for a patient of -- age, man/woman,

active/sedentary lifestyle suffering from hypertension/anxiety etc.

Describing your environment, food etc may also help an ayurvedist to

understand your situation better. Then only you may get some

suggestions for evaluation by you and your health care professional.

Even if you are in USA, the group has people from there who may give

suggestions on herbs available in USA.


Another faster approach would be searching archives using keywords "hypertension", "anxiety" etc. YOu will come across many recommendations on herbs, yoga, lifestyle etc. OUr archives have gathered a rich storehouse of practical ayurvedic tips, if not detailed theories.
