Dr. Gerald Pollack: The Fourth Phase of Water, Mammalian Photosynthesis, and the Seemingly Infinite Power of Earthing

What is EZ water? And why the heck is it important?

Dr. Gerald Pollack joins me on episode #13 of Ancestral Health Radio to discuss the many benefits of water, and, more specifically—it's fourth phase.

We also mention water quality, his newest untitled book, and how to supercharge your body with a seemingly unlimited power source... that's right beneath your feet.

In today's episode, you'll learn...

  • The significance of EZ (Exclusion Zone) water,
  • The benefits of drinking natural spring water,
  • The positive (or shall I say negative?) effects that Earthing has on the body, and...
  • Much, much more.

Episode Breakdown

  • Why Dr. Pollack finds it odd that most people presume that everything there is to know about water must already be known
  • Gerald discusses the four phases of water: solid, liquid, vapor, and "gel-like"
  • Why Dr. Pollack wrote the book Cells, Gels, and the Engines of Life
  • Why Gerald finds it weird that water is seemingly irrelevant to biology and biochemistry
  • Dr. Pollack shares why he says water has taken a back seat to modern medical technology
  • How Gerald found himself involved with water through the study of muscle 
  • Gerald's discovery of EZ (Exclusion Zone) water and its many different properties (H3O2)—specifically its structure and charge
  • How EZ water grows and generates renewable energy using different spectrums of light
  • Hydrophilic versus hydrophobic
  • Gerald breaks down how cells and proteins use EZ water (protein folding, etc.) to help cell and organ function
  • How saunas build EZ water within the body
  • Are gray hairs a sign of dehydration?
  • How drinking water was one doctor's only prescription for wellness
  • Dr. Pollack's speculative thoughts on water quality
  • Why spring water—in theory—should be good for your health
  • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
  • Organic and non-organic agents that build and inhibit EZ water
  • Jerry shares his experience with Earthing and its effects on EZ water
  • The Institute for Venture Science
  • Dr. Pollack discusses his next untitled book and a few of the topics 

Questions I Ask

  1. "What do people think of water now, and what exactly have you discovered about water that makes it different?"
  2. "How come nobody's looking at this? Like you said, there's no mention of water in a biology book as far as looking at the cellular structure, right? [...] What's happening now?"
  3. "Why shouldn't they be ignoring water? What have you found that makes it so important?"
  4. "How does EZ water affect our health?"
  5. "Are we getting enough infrared exposure?"
  6. "What's your experience with Earthing and what can you tell us about it?"

Who is Dr. Gerald Pollack?

Gerald Pollack received his PhD in biomedical engineering from the University of Pennsylvania in 1968. He then joined the University of Washington faculty and is now professor of Bioengineering. He is also Founding Editor-in-Chief of the journal, WATER, convener of the Annual Conference on the Physics, Chemistry and Biology of Water, and Executive Director of the Institute for Venture Science.

His interests have ranged broadly, from biological motion and cell biology to the interaction of biological surfaces with aqueous solutions. His 1990 book, Muscles and Molecules: Uncovering the Principles of Biological Motion, won an “Excellence Award” from the Society for Technical Communication. His 2001 book, Cells, Gels and the Engines of Life, and his newest book, The Fourth Phase of Water: Beyond Solid, Liquid, and Vapor won that Society’s “Distinguished Award,” their highest distinction. The latter book went on to receive the World Summit Excellence Award.

He has presented two TEDx talks on water. In 2015, he won the Brandlaureate Award, previously bestowed on notables such as Nelson Mandela, Hillary Clinton and Steve Jobs. In 2016 he was awarded the 1 st Emoto Peace Prize. And, he appears briefly in the 2016 Travis Rice sports-action film, The Fourth Phase, named after his recent book.
