It was not only designed for transport, food resources, surfing or summer holidays. The mysteries about the properties of this life- given substance called seawater are unknown to the majority of people and well respected by those who have reaped the benefits of its many health properties.
Once you familiarizing yourself with the benefits of sea water, you will be astounded by the many benefits thereof, and be disappointed by the ignorance of society towards the use of it.
HERE IS JUST A FEW APPLICATIONS OF SEAWATER YOU MAY CONSIDER;
IN THIS ARTICAL YOU WILL FIND TOPICS LIKE;
The salt found in seawater is essential for maintaining good health and you cannot live healthy without it. There is no comparison between the standard refined table salt we used daily and the sea-salt intake by cooking with seawater. Its mineral content gives it a different taste from table salt.
Using seawater instead of table salt for cooking, along with the many other applications of seawater, it can have a major impact on your health.
Seawater assists the human body to maintain its own perfect pH level in the blood for all systems to function properly, keeping rogue cells from becoming metastatic disease, translating into cancerous tumours in multiple organs.
Intensive research has shown that an acidic blood causes bacteria, yeast, pleomorphic virus, and fungus to flourish and spark degenerative diseases like, diabetes, cancer, aids, arteriosclerosis, chronic fatigue, and pancreatic cells become more cancerous and tumorigenic.
Few of us ever consider the acid/alkaline (pH) balance of our blood, but a proper pH is a crucial aspect to health. Many doctors stress the importance of pH because a balanced pH protects us from the inside out. Disease and disorders cannot take root when the bodies pH is in balance.
Taking medicine or supplements for cancer while your pH is highly acidic is a bit like washing dishes in a sink of dirty water, even when you put in plenty of soap, your dishes remain dirty.
Salt found in seawater is NOT the same thing as table salt which has been stripped of its companion elements and contains additive elements such as aluminium silicate to keep it powdery and porous. Aluminium is a very toxic element in our nervous system. It is one of the primary causes of Alzheimer’s disease. Salt found in sea water has many other functions other than just regulating the water content of the body.
Here are some of the more vital functions of the salt found in seawater for the body:
1. Heart: Sea water is most effective in stabilizing irregular heartbeats and – contrary to the misconception that it causes high blood pressure – it is actually essential for the regulation of blood pressure.
2. Brain: Seawater is vital to the extraction of excess acidity from the cells in the body, particularly the brain cells.
3. Blood: Seawater is vital for balancing the acidic sugar levels in the blood; a needed element in diabetics.
4. Cells: Seawater is vital for the generation of hydroelectric energy in cells in the body. It is used for local power generation at the sites of energy needed by the cells.
5. Nerves: Seawater is vital to the nerve cells’ communication and information processing all the time that the brain cells work, from the moment of conception to death.
6. Intestines: Seawater is vital for absorption of food particles through the intestinal tract.
7. Lungs: Seawater is vital for the clearance of the lungs of mucous plugs and sticky phlegm, particularly in asthma and cystic fibrosis.
9. Sinuses: Seawater is vital for clearing up catarrh and congestion of the sinuses.
10. Antihistamine: Seawater is a strong natural antihistamine and won't leave you feeling drowsy as most antihistamines do.
11. Muscles: Seawater is essential for the prevention of muscle cramps.
12. Mouth: Seawater is vital to prevent excess saliva production to the point that it flows out of the mouth during sleep. Needing to constantly mop up excess saliva indicates salt shortage and over-acidity.
13. Bones: Seawater is absolutely vital to making the structure of bones firm. Osteoporosis, in a major way, is a result of salt and water shortage in the body.
14. Sleep: Seawater is vital for sleep regulation. It is a natural hypnotic.
15. Diabetics: Seawater is a vitally needed element in the treatment of diabetics.
16. Dry coughs: Small sips of seawater will stop persistent dry coughs.
17. Gouty arthritis: Seawater is vital for the prevention of gout and gouty arthritis.
18. Sexuality: Seawater is vital for maintaining sexuality and libido.
19. Varicose veins: Seawater is vital for preventing varicose veins and spider veins on the legs.
20. Double chin: Seawater is vital for reducing a double chin. When the body is short of salt, it means the body is short of alkaline energized water. The salivary glands sense the salt shortage and are obliged to produce more saliva to lubricate the act of chewing and swallowing and also to supply the stomach with water that it needs for alkalizing foods. Circulation to the salivary glands increases and the blood vessels become “leaky” in order to supply the glands with water to manufacture saliva. That leakiness spills beyond the area of the glands themselves, causing increased bulk under the skin of the chin, the cheeks and into the neck.
21. Bones: 27% of the body’s salt is in the bones. Osteoporosis results when the body needs more salt and takes it from the body. Bones are 22% water. Is it not obvious what happens to the bones when we’re deficient in salt or water or both.
22. Hormones: Seawater will help balance the pH and symptoms associated with hormone imbalance.
23. Sugar cravings: Seawater will reverse sugar cravings.
24. Muscle cramps: Seawater will neutralize acids associated with muscle cramps or restless legs.
25. Adrenal stress: Seawater will help reduce adrenal stress.
26. Cellular communication: Seawater will provide a matrix for cellular communication.
27. Energy levels: Seawater will help energize the body.
28. Hot flashes: Seawater will help reduce hot flashes.
Seawater will provide the primary elements for producing sodium bicarbonate to alkalize the fluids of the extracellular and intracellular fluids. Hence, with all these facts we cannot overlook the importance of seawater in our diet.
Our bottled seawater goes through a specially designed filtration system which kills harmful bacteria, killing off any parasites or disease-causing micro-organisms and keeps the seawater as pure and natural as possible without removing the natural essential elements from the water.

Seawater has been used by humans and animals since the beginning of time and is nothing new.
Many myths about the intake of seawater have been introduced by ignorance, yet research proves undoubtedly the beneficial necessity thereof for a healthy living.
In Spain, seawater is being marketed as la sal perfecta – the perfect salt. But does it really improve the flavour of food? And is it any healthier than regular sodium chloride?
At the Baeza-Rufete restaurant, 30 miles south of Benidorm on the east coast of Spain, the rice is served smokingly hot, lightly caramelised on the bottom and with a white, fleshy prawn displayed in the centre. Unlike many of the tourist-orientated paellas along the coast this is a proper rice dish, rather than just the base for a pile of seafood. It’s also well-seasoned, without actually tasting salty.
The secret, says, Joaquín Baeza, who won Spain’s “Chef of the Year” contest in 2014, is that there’s no table salt added at all. Instead, he cooked the rice in a diluted seawater solution. It’s a tradition that has been practised in coastal villages for centuries, and espoused, particularly for seafood, by big-name Spanish chefs such as Ferran Adrià and Quique Dacosta.
Baeza, however, goes further, describing it as “the future of cuisine” for its ability to improve the flavour of food and its alleged health benefits. According to the six Spanish companies now selling filtered seawater to chefs and consumers, it’s a way to season food while using less sodium chloride and boosting our consumption of trace minerals. His supplier, Alicante based Mediterranea, source their water, currently around 60,000 litres a month, from a pipeline off the relatively unspoiled coastline on the northern Costa Brava. Mediterranea claims that its product is better for you and better tasting than, not just table salt, but also granular sea salts.
“Sea salt is a salt that’s been through a process of purification and lost a large part of its minerals,” says marketing director Albert Fernández. “Some 98% of sea salt is sodium chloride. In seawater, 86% of the minerals are sodium chloride. The other 14% are minerals such as potassium, magnesium and calcium. Order now;
Remember when you were little and you used to collect sand and shells from the beach? Ok, we actually still do that but now we’re adding one more thing to our beach comber list: Seawater! Why you ask … because the newest culinary trend is cooking with salt water.
This salty H2O is used both as an ingredient and as a way of cooking. Many chefs are boiling shellfish like mussels, clams, lobsters, crabs, and shrimp in it to preserve its natural taste. Even everyday items like pasta, potatoes, veggies, and chicken are getting boiled in seawater and some chefs use it as an ingredient in soups, sauces, and dressings for that fresh-from-the-ocean taste.
The American Fish Restaurant in Las Vegas poaches diver scallops, Day-boat cod, and Loch Duart salmon in ocean water, and the bare bones Trenton Bridge Lobster Pound in Trenton, Maine serves up boiled lobster, steamed clams, lobster stew, clam chowder, and lobster and crab sandwiches – all cooked in water fresh from the ocean.
Not only does the special ingredient add amazing flavor, but seawater and sea salt have many health benefits. Since your food will be seasoned naturally with salt water, there is no need for additional salt and little need for extra spices which will cut back on your salt intake. Sea salt is also processed naturally through the evaporation of seawater which leaves behind minerals that are often removed during the lengthy production used to make table salt.
FRIDAY, April 25 (HealthDay News) -- You can grow a healthier tomato by watering it with diluted seawater, a new study shows.
In an experiment in which researchers grew cherry tomatoes in either freshwater or a diluted solution of 12 percent seawater, the salt-water tomatoes developed higher levels of vitamin C, vitamin E, dihydrolipoic acid and chlorogenic acid. Each substance is an antioxidant that may help fight heart disease, cancer, aging and other conditions.
The findings, expected to be published in the May 14 issue of the American Chemical Society's Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, hold promise not only for health reasons, but also because using salt water to irrigate tomato crops could ease potable-water shortages in some parts of the world, the researchers noted.
In recent years, tomatoes have been linked to several possible health benefits, including protection against prostate cancer and heart disease.
Is there anything better than a ripe tomato, fresh off the vine?
Maybe there is. How about a fresh, ripe tomato grown with seawater?
Italian researchers report that the nutritional content of tomatoes — cherry tomatoes, in this case — improves when the plants are irrigated with diluted seawater.
Cristina Sgherri and colleagues at the University of Pisa grew cherry tomatoes with normal irrigation water and with water diluted with 12 percent seawater. They found that the seawater tomatoes were about 60 percent smaller by weight, on average, than those grown with regular water. But the seawater tomatoes were tastier, with higher acidity and a higher concentration of sugars.
Where the seawater tomatoes really stood out, though, was in concentrations of antioxidants, including vitamins C and E and chlorogenic acid. The findings were reported in The Journal of Agricultural Chemistry.
The researchers say that using seawater would be useful in areas like Sicily where freshwater supplies are limited. And as to the smaller size of the tomatoes, they suggest that because of the greater nutritional value, farmers might be able to charge more.
Salt, is in small amounts a necessary component of all life. Salt has been produced from the evaporation of seawater since prehistoric times. Seawater also contains most of the essential macro- and microminerals essential for healthy plant growth (Turekian 1968, DOE 1997, Motavalli and Marler 1998). There are essential plant nutrients found in seawater and their functions within plants. Investigation into the use of seawater for irrigation in agriculture has been ongoing for decades. Diluted seawater is a simple yet vital input used in Natural Farming as a source of mineral nutri-tion for the production of a variety of fruit and vegetable crops, as well as for lawns, pastures, and flowers (Mount et al. 1978, Sgherri et al. 2008). Seawater combined with other inputs stimulates the growth of beneficial microorganisms that can help to sup-press disease.
Actually, it is! It's even been used in transfusions in emergency situations when blood or plasma wasn't available and the patient needed to have his blood volume maintained.
Sea water is remarkably similar to blood in many ways. When comparing the concentrations of various elements in seawater and blood, we find that the two most common elements in each are Chlorine (Cl) and then Sodium (Na). Together they make Sodium Chloride (NaCl), or common table salt. The concentrations are higher in seawater than in blood, though. When it's been used for transfusions seawater needs to be diluted in fresh water first.
After Na and Cl, as you go to the lower-concentration elements the two liquids start to differ in their elemental concentrations as far as which is where on the list, but the next-most common elements or compounds in both are Sulfate, Magnesium, Calcium, and Potassium. So they actually are very similar.
The pH range (a measure of acidity or alkalinity) of seawater is normally 7.4 - 8.2, while in blood it's 7.38 - 7.44 (the body keeps this in a very tight range).
It's thought that seawater and blood used to be much closer in composition when organisms that eventually became land mammals developed in the oceans eons ago. Over time the oceans are believed to have risen in elemental concentrations (become more salty) as more elements dissolved and washed off of the land from the action of rainwater and into the sea.
When you look at the rarer elements in blood, you begin to find wider variations from what's in seawater. So it's certainly not identical to blood.
But it has been used in transfusions, both in emergencies and in medical experiments.
Experiments were run on dogs in the early 1900s to test diluted, filtered ocean water as a substitute transfusion liquid. An early experimenter named René Quinton and his team drained all of a dog's blood and replaced it with the seawater solution. The dog lived, and on the second day after the transfusion, half of its normal blood components had returned, regenerated by its body. By the fourth day its blood was back to virtually normal and the dog was active and full of energy and happy. The dog went on to live for many years afterward, with no visible problems as a result of the experiment.
[Website author's note: I'm not a doctor, but I would have thought that totally replacing an animal's blood with seawater wouldn't have worked at the start, because real blood uses hemoglobin to carry lots of oxygen to the tissues. Perhaps the seawater was highly oxygenated at the start, and the dog was breathing pure oxygen at the start also. I haven't read the details of the experiment so I really don't know.]
Not long after this surprising result was found the research was dropped, as World War I began and the researcher Quinton was drafted into the military. He later died in 1925. Similar tests were run by others who had read of his experiments, as late as 1969, with similar results.
Sea Water and the Immune System:-
An Australian study published at the National Institutes of Health website suggests that salt water swimming pools can have a positive effect on pyoderma (skin sores) and “perforations of the tympanic membrane” (ear infection) in children under the age of 17. The study concluded that the incidences of these two medical issues decreased by 50 percent in Aboriginal children after regular exposure to the sea water in newly constructed salt water swimming pools. The study goes on to say that “swimming in a salt water pool provides the equivalent of a nasal and ear washout and cleans the skin.”
Atopic dermatitis is a type of chronic skin disease characterized by inflamed, itchy skin; it’s also a type of eczema. A Japanese report published by the National Oceanographic Data Center, suggests that sea water is an effective treatment for atopic dermatitis. The sea water provides itching and burning relief to those with this type of eczema. The study goes on to say that the treatment is more effective when sea salt water is used rather than surface sea water because of the various bacteria found near the surface.
Inhaling sodium chloride, or salt from sea water, in aerosol form is called halotherapy. Traditionally, this type of therapy was accomplished through prolonged exposure to salt mines and other high salt concentrated areas, but today the same effect can be reproduced via aerosol forms of salt. This type of therapy was used in a 1995 study for treating patients suffering from acute bronchitis. The results showed favorable changes in metabolic activity, normalization of serotonin levels, and a decrease in the unbalance of the lipid peroxidation-antioxidant system.
Sea water treatment has been shown to improve the effects of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis in patients suffering from the diseases. A study published at PubMed.gov was conducted on location at the Dead Sea, which is the most salt-concentrated body of water in the world, and the study consisted of a steady regimen of bathing in sea water along with exposure to solar UV rays. The results showed substantial improvements in joint pain and skin irritation by the participating patients, especially when mud packs and sulfur baths were added to the sea water bathing regimen.
Thalassotherapy is a rediscovered spa treatment based on an ancient belief in the natural healing properties of seawater. The word itself was coined in 19th Century France from the Greek "thalassa" meaning sea and "therapeia" meaning healing. Today, thalassotherapy is used as an alternative treatment for medical conditions and has become a popular tourist attraction for relaxation and stress reduction as well as a favorite method of anti-aging healing by maintaining healthy circulation in the body.
Thalassotherapy's main objective is to increase blood circulation that is reduced by the depletion of vital minerals caused by stress, poor diet, and pollution. Since the chemical make-up of seawater is so similar to that of human blood, immersions in water when heated to body temperature results in trace minerals and ions such as magnesium, potassium, and calcium sulphates to be absorbed directly by the skin. This not only increases blood circulation but has beneficial effects upon the pores of the skin such as toning and moisturizing.
Thalassotherapy (sometimes referred to as thalasso) also helps to detoxify and nourish skin, as well as to relax the body.
Increasingly, people are turning to thalassotherapy for its anti-aging treatments. It has become a favorite treatment for cellulite reduction both for its effectiveness as well as its calming approach. The causes of cellulite are generally attributed to poor blood circulation and a build-up of toxins, so an overall thalassotherapy treatment can release these agents while providing other benefits.
Some of these benefits of thalassotherapy are:
Thalasso therapy has also been used as an anti-smoking treatment
Different forms of thalasso therapy have different effects and the treatment options vary so choosing the one that is right for you can be a fun experience. The most common approach is the seaweed wrap that involves wrapping the body in a combination of seaweed and herb-soaked cloths while resting on top of a thermal blanket. After approximately one hour, the therapist unravels the seaweed and massages the body to increase circulation.
Another option is the thalassotherapy pool in which you wade against a gentle current of seawater. Jet pools are another option along with showers of warmed seawater, application of marine mud or algae paste, and sea fog inhalation.
Because thalassotherapy first became popular in France, some of the best spas in the world can be found along its shores by the seawater; thalassotherapy hotels in France are also becoming increasingly popular. Other thalassotherapy locales can be found in Portugal, Belgium, Greece, Italy, Cyprus, Morocco, and Tunisia.
It may be difficult at this point to locate a credible spa in the United States, but thalassotherapy products are always available for do-it-yourself home use.
Spa treatments usually range from $100 to $200 per session.
A new Japanese study reveals that drinking seawater may help relieve those with stomach troubles from pain, indigestion, and even decrease the risk of developing stomach cancer and ulcers, the Daily Mail reports.
Researchers at the Kochi Medical School in Japan asked 23 patients to drink seawater, thinking that it might help kill the bacteria Helicobacter pylori, which infects up to four in ten people at some stage during their lives. The bacteria are the main cause of stomach ulcers, triggering an ulcer in about 15 percent of
If Helicobacter pylori, as scientists hypothesize, damages the lining of the stomach, acid from the stomach can irritate tissue underneath, triggering indgestion, ulcers and increasing the risk of developing stomach cancer. If someone is found to be carrying the bacteria, they are typically prescribed antibiotics to reduce the amount of acid in their stomach, though scientists are concerned about drug-resistant strains of the bug appearing, as well as potential side effects from the antibiotics, including vertigo, diarrhea, headache and nausea. Thus, studies are now being conducted about the possible benefits of seawater, a drug-alternative.
A new two-week trial at the National Taiwan University Hospital involving 60 infected patients is now underway. Half of the patients will drink 200ml of seawater four times a day, one hour before meals and at bedtime, while half will be given conventional water as a control.
Of the 23 people who drank the seawater as prescribed at the Kochi Medical School, bacteria numbers in their bodies were reduced by 60 percent. Researchers believe that the high levels of calcium, potassium and magnesium found in seawater is toxic to the Helicobacter pylori bacteria, perhaps damaging the outer walls of its cells.
"This looks like fascinating work, and it is interesting that it reduces numbers of the bacteria," John Mason, gastroenterologist from Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, said to the Daily Mail on the new trial. "However, we don't know yet if the bacteria numbers increase when people stop drinking the water. At this stage, we simply do not know how useful it will be. And one of the problems is that this water won't be regulated as a medicine so people will need to be wary of claims made for it."
A recent study at the College of Medicine and Intractable Disease Research Center at Dongguk University in South Korea analyzed the affects of seawater on breast cancer cells, as "recently, the scientific community has begun to establish the health benefits of sea water due to its enrichment in nutrients and minerals."
So even though you were likely warned not to drink seawater as a child, scientists believe it may have great medicinal benefits.
Recently, the scientific community has begun to establish the health benefits of deep-sea water (DSW) due to its enrichment in nutrients and minerals. In this study, we investigated the effects of deep-sea water (DSW) on the metastatic potential of two human breast cancer cell lines exhibiting highly different phenotypes. MDA-MB-231 cells exhibit invasive/metastatic tumor features with rapid migration ability and high endogenous expression of TGF-β and Wnt5a. DSW treatment significantly inhibits their migratory ability in a wound-healing assay. This inhibitory effect of DSW appears to be mediated through TGF-β and Wnt5a signaling, resulting in attenuated expression of CD44. We further investigated the preventive effect of DSW on 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA)-induced invasive/metastatic tumor features in non-invasive MCF-7 cells. Similar to the inhibitory effects shown in MDA-MB-231 cells, we observed that DSW treatment resulted in the inhibition of TPA-induced migration and MMP-9 activity with a concomitant decrease in mRNA levels of MMP-9, TGF-β, Wnt5a and Wnt3a. Taken together, our data show that DSW has inhibitory effects on breast cancer invasion/metastasis, suggesting that DSW has some promise in improving cancer survival by preventing tumor metastasis.
Drinking seawater with high levels of magnesium (Mg) decreased serum lipids in animal studies. Therefore the effects of drinking DSW on blood lipids and its antioxidant capacity in hypercholesterolemic subjects were investigated. DSW was first prepared by a process of filtration and reverse osmosis, and then the concentrated DSW with high levels of Mg was diluted as drinking DSW. Forty-two hypercholesterolemic volunteers were randomly divided into three groups: reverse osmotic (RO) water, DSW (Mg: 395 mg/L, hardness 1410 ppm), and magnesium-chloride fortified (MCF) water (Mg: 386 mg/L, hardness 1430 ppm). The subjects drank 1050 mL of water daily for 6 weeks, and blood samples were collected and analyzed on weeks 0, 3, and 6. Drinking DSW caused a decrease in blood total cholesterol levels and this effect was progressively enhanced with time. Serum low-density lipoprotein–cholesterol (LDL-C) was also decreased by DSW. Further, total cholesterol levels of subjects in the DSW group were significantly lower than those in the MCF water or RO water groups. Compared with week 0, the DSW group had higher blood Mg level on weeks 3 and 6, but the Mg levels were within the normal range in all three groups. DSW consumption also lowered thiobarbituric acid-reactive substances (TBARS) values in serum. In conclusion, DSW was apparently effective in reducing blood total cholesterol and LDL-C, and also in decreasing lipid peroxidation in hypercholesterolemic subjects.
Historically, Ocean water (plasma) has had, and can have, numerous possible applications. All of these therapeutic uses are based on the same concept of renewing, purifying and regenerating the internal fluid environment, as well as maintaining vital equilibrium.
Historically, OCEAN WATER is the best support and regenerator for all cell mechanisms.
The director of the evaluation: Dr. Marc François PAYA Director of studies at the Faculty of medicine
Paris XIII and Member of the NEW YORK ACADEMY 0F SCIENCE
Resume of the evaluation:
The evaluation was done with a team of non professional cyclists who took HYPERTONIC SEAWATER solution orally. The evaluation demonstrated that the natural sea water, physiologically compatible with the human organism containing the full spectrum of minerals in their natural ionic form, improves the subjective and objective parameters of a cyclist's performance.
The use of the rule of analogy as a method is a new strategy for this evaluation.
Objective of the evaluation:
To determine the effect of the oral use (drinkable) of HYPERTONIC SEAWATER SOLUTION on the performance of cyclists of different ages during one month. The average dosage of the HYPERTONIC SEAWATER consumed daily by each cyclist was four (4) ampoules, a total of 40 ml. The cyclists covered a distance of 150 km each week.
During cycling: 2 ampoules before cycling
2 ampoules after cycling
In addition: 2 ampoules in the morning
2 ampoules in the afternoon
Methodology of assessing the experience of cyclists:
The evaluation was made for a group of different cyclists of the same club, mostly experienced cyclists, as well as an older professional cyclist, who all had won prizes in past competitions.
At the start of the evaluation, the aims were discussed by the director with the cyclists. Two questionnaires were used, one for day 0 and one for day 30. The evaluation was on scale of 1-10.
Number 1 was equivalent to a very weak physical condition, and 10 for an excellent physical condition.
Each cyclist determined his own physical condition, based on the rule of analogy. This involved a subjective assessment the way pain is evaluated in hospital pain clinics. This subjective evaluation was objectively followed during the 30 day period by observing the subject's physical performance from day 0 to day 30.
The first questionnaire defined the physical condition of each cyclist at day zero; and the second on day thirty (30), after he had finished a course of HYPERTONIC SEAWATER. All the cyclists agreed to complete the questionnaire and a parallel medical evaluation of each cyclist was done during the same period. After the first questionnaire, at day zero was completed, it was given to the doctor, and the cyclist was no longer able to review it until he had completed the second questionnaire at day thirty.
The second questionnaire at day thirty, was based on answers in real time. To the surprise of most of the cyclists, they saw an evident improvement of the measured parameters.
Several of the cyclists helped to review the observations, which underlined the importance of assessing certain parameters related to the analysis of behaviour of the cyclists during and after the races. This analysis was relevant to the individual cyclist as well as to the entire group.
Results of the evaluation:
Based on the answers of each questionnaire, all the parameters improved, except for two cyclists who experienced an increase in nervous tension. Only one cyclist withdrew from the study, due to severe high blood pressure, which he omitted to report prior to commencing the study.
The remarkable evidence of the evaluation:
1. There was an improvement in endurance, reduction in fatigue and recovery of energy after the race, for all the cyclists. All cyclists improved their overall potential.
2. The increased capacity to perform in pursuits and accelerate on hills, showed that the body was mobilizing a greater energy level.
The conclusions of the evaluation:
The consumption of the HYPERTONIC SEAWATER, based on the prescribed dosages, produced an objective improvement in the physical performance of the athletes as shown by the statistics. The results are particularly significant for the improved level of performance. The capacity to sustain the physical effort on the cycling course and climbing hills as well as a speed in energy recovery after the cycling events improved substantially.
One hundred years ago, seawater was used traditionally by many medical doctors for a large variety of afflictions, often with remarkable success.
From 1905 until the beginning of the first world war in 1914, the biologist René Quinton carried out a tremendous amount of research to prove that diluted seawater (isotonic) is identical to the internal body environment, and he determined that seawater is a direct blood replacement. From these experiments he developed special harvesting methods for seawater and established a viable protocol for administering his increasingly popular therapy that he simply named "The Marine Method". Many case histories attest to the effectiveness of the seawater treatments. The protocol for oral use of Marine Plasma (Ocean Plasma) is exceedingly simple.
The medical doctor Jean Jarricot (pediatrician) worked for many years in his Dispensary where he treated literally thousands of children with seawater, his Marine Plasma, and he collaborated with Quinton to document detailed therapies and treatment protocols for nurslings. He had particularly good success with children afflicted with athrepsia and cholera. Even back in 1924, he already practiced oral use of seawater.
Doctor P. Barrière - retired Externist -
Laureate of the hospitals - Bordeau 1907.
Doctor Barrière has published a book entitled "L'EAU DE MER en ingestion dans les dyspepsies" (Ocean Water used orally in dispepsia cases) - its effects regarding gastric secretions and urinary excretion." This is a 22-page excerpt of the book referenced above.
In three chapter he explains:
1.) The oral use of Ocean Water - oral use of seawater from the time of Hipporates to 1904. There are also details of lab work by Professor Arnozan.
2.) Ocean Water when used by injection according to the work by Quinton (1897-1907)L'eau de mer en injection - its special influence with digestive problems.
3.) Ocean Water - its physical and chemical characteristics. Therapeutic definitions and intruction how to use it.
Although Dr. Olivier Macé does not mention oral use, he had tremendous success in 1924 using isotonic seawater injections with difficult pregnancies and pre-natal applications. His detailed case histories are interesting to peruse.
In Senegal, Doctors H. Lauture and G. Mbakob (1978) successfully treated one hundred children suffering from profound dehydration caused by diarrheas, vomiting and malnutrition using subcutaneous injections and oral administration of the Marine Plasma. It was made quite clear that otherwise between 40-70% of these children would have died.
Drs. André Passebecq and Jean-Marc Soulier (year unknown) documented some very detailed scientific observations regarding the effectiveness of seawater in various applications and advocated oral use of seawater. Oral dosage as a mineral supplement does not seem to be very important - but regularity is. For a normalization of body fluid pH, a short- to medium term therapy of drinkable hypertonic seawater solution invariably brings quick results.
Dr. F. Paya (1997) reported using the Quinton plasma to regulate the endocrine system in cases of secondary hyper aldosteronism. He also reported excellent success with oral use of seawater in treating fatigue and maintaining the physical performance of athletes. Dr. Paya used either the isotonic or hypertonic seawater formulas, with both children and adults, in cases of dehydration, asthenia, loss of appetite and convalescence.
In Canada, seawater is used primarily as a FOOD, a nutritional supplement. Also, the isotonic plasma is increasingly being used in conjunction with colonic therapy.
The Germans have shown that drinking the marine plasma was as effective as subcutaneous injections. Dr. R. Basser (1953) reported that 70% of his cases suffering from psoriasis, prurigo and neurodermatitis showed considerable improvement when treated with the marine plasma.
In 1954 Dr. R. Bench reported good improvement among one hundred allergic patients. In all his cases, he reported the profound effect of the marine plasma on the total organism.
Dr. H. Hansche (1957) observed that oral administration of marine plasma had powerful regulating action on the intestines. As well, he obtained remarkable improvements in many patients suffering from asthma and eczema.
