Hello winter! Tis the season filled with chilly temperatures, cold winds, wet weather, and millions of snowflakes. During this time, it is vital that we keep our immune system strong and healthy. Maintaining a healthy immune system is multi-faceted and includes many tools such as sleep, nutrition, supplementation, exercise, hydration, meditation and holistic and western based professional assistance when necessary.

Like a snowflake, we each have our own unique thoughts, beliefs, physical bodies, lifestyles, stresses, demands and responsibilities. We are a beautiful combination of cells that merge, grow and change together. Like snowflakes, our bodies are made up of at least 70 percent water. Every cell comes together to create intricate connections and pathways providing nourishment, protection, detoxification, communication and thought. Scientists report that 60 percent of the water in our bodies are in the cells and roughly 1/3 of the rest of the water surrounds the cells. The top four organs containing 80 percent or more water are the brain, kidneys, heart and lungs.

The immune system requires an adequate amount of water to effectively and efficiently complete all body functions. Let’s take a moment to consider not only the quantity but quality of water we consume. Clear, clean and unblocked water cells have the most success traveling within our bodies while providing our tissues with the maximum benefits of hydration. This emphasizes the importance of drinking clean water, but is there another way to provide ourselves with clean water?

The late Dr. Masaru Emoto, renowned best-selling book author and water scientist, believed there is. He began studying and photographing the changes of water when exposed to different emotional stimuli. His work demonstrated significant changes to the structure of water crystals. Emoto’s water samples were exposed to different vibration stimuli such as music, words and thought, and then frozen and photographed. Repetition of his work revealed that responses to variations of vibration produced clearly defined patterns ranging from clear and bright to broken and cloudy. Emoto concluded the patterns demonstrated that water had a “memory” – the ability to carry molecules of information from its physical experiences.

Dr. Darren Weissman, well-known holistic physician and author further demonstrated this work by photographing blood cells before and after addressing emotional beliefs when treating medical conditions. Prior to the healing process, the photographs depicted clumped and tangled groups of blood cells, resulting in limited flow. Weissman pioneered a treatment using specific thought processes to influence the impact of vibration exposed to the cells to facilitate healing. Following the healing process, pictures revealed individualized and open patterns of cells together.

Understanding the impact we have on our bodies with our thoughts, actions and words can create a powerful tool for achieving optimal strength within our immune system. If we are exposing the water in our bodies to repetitive stressors or negative responses, (low vibration stimuli such as fear and anger), then we are potentially creating blockages within our systems. On the flip side, exposure to high vibrations impacts our cells to be more open and fluid allowing for cellular function to succeed. When we can remove or reduce the stressors on our system—whether physical or mental—our bodies are able to increase strength, efficiency and balance for a healthier life.

So, the next time you stop and give yourself the gift of self-care, remember your superpower—positivity. Visualize the clear flowing pattern of water—your personal “snowflake” —and know that you are supporting your immune system.
