I have observed two customs in my native (Mangalore, Karnataka,South India).The first one is carried by my mother (Mrs Gowri S Bhat) during my childhood days. This is practiced even today in many households.
1st method: When a child is sick suddenly or feels fatigue, Iron charged water is given to drink as well as to apply over the body. This contributes significant benefits in many health conditions which are named as Drishti doshas or Pakshi doshas by Traditional healers.
My mother used to heat an iron rod and there after it was dipped in water taken in a copper or bronze vessel over a wooden platform. This heating and dipping is done
This water is given to drink as well as to apply over the body.
The second incidence was during my childhood sufferings from allergic rashes.My uncle was taking me to an Unani Hakim cum holistic practitioner at Montugoli, near Mudipu (Mangalore).
He was also giving the so called charged water. A copper rod is heated and dipped in tender coconut water. It was administered orally, and also applied externally. I am highy thankful to those ideologies which have prevented me from taking irrational chemical molecules!
My experiments with charged water:
Based on my knowledge on modern metallurgy, alchemy and Ayurveda, I have started advising the charged water in simple illnesses.
As they are safe, cheap(not at all expensive) and mild to moderate effective (surely, I will not claim that they are highly effective, as specific medicaments will do that job in different contexts and illness conditions) the needy ones can have the benefit out of these.
Gold charged water
Any golden ornament like chain, ring or thin sheet or wire etc can be used.
If pure Gold/Aparanji is available it is well and good.
This is heated red hot and dipped in water for 5-10 times.(in case of chain or ring as making red hot is not possible, the jewel is kept in water and boiled for 5 – 10 minutes.
Such water is administered in a dose of 20 – 30 ml.
I have not observed any benefit of pouring or sprinkling over the body
Immuno-modulator, energizer, blood purifier, complexion enhancer, useful in urogenital disorders.
Chronic disorders, Cancer, Cachexia and associated complaints, food poisoning.
Contra indication: People who are sensitive or allergic to gold or Swarna (gold) Bhasma.
Silver charged water
Method: Similar to the above method.
Action: Neuro muscular stimulant,memory enhancer
Indications: Epilepsy,Memory loss,Alzeimers disease,Mood disorders etc
Contra indication: Silver sensitive individuals
Iron charged water
Method: Pure Iron rod is heated red hot and dipped in water (3-5 times).
Action: Rejuvinator, relieves tiredness.
Indications: Pitta disorders affecting blood, anaemia, fatigue, diabetes, hypertension etc
Contra indication: Iron sensitive individuals,Severe constipation,Burning urination
Copper charged water
Method:As like Iron charged water
Action:Stimulant, Carminative, Digestive etc
Indication: Chronic skin diseases, Malignancy, Obesity etc
Contra indication: Copper sensitive individuals, Mood irritation disorders, Acute GIT disorders, constipation etc
Note:Instead of water, tender coconut water can be used which contributes still better results.
I am very sure that few good critics will come in this regard saying that such practices are baseless and unscientific. Being with good faith with Ayurveda and Traditional practices (because I have carried a critical study on 94 Traditional practices of South Canara district of Karnataka in 1997-1999:’Documentation and Critical analysis of Folk medicinal practices prevalent in South Canara district of Karnataka’ ).

The use of metals in water is very potent and sound. In Europe we have what is called colloidal water. A small electrical current is passed through a small rod of the purest metal dipped in water. After a few minutes very small amounts of the metal’s ions detach from the rod and stay in the water. Dilutions are usually very high 10-15 parts per million. The water is then drank in small quantity, 15 ml once or twice a day. Silver colloidal water is highly potent for all virus and bacterial infection, much more so than antibiotics. As an example I once drank well water in the Indian countryside and ended up with terrible stomach cramps. I drank a full glass of clean water with 30 ml of silver colloids (so even higher dilution) and within 20 minutes the viruses and bacteria in my stomach were neutralized. How does it work? The metal’s electrical charge is either positive or negative. The “illness” a given metal targets has the opposite charge. The metal’s ion is automatically attracted to the “illness”, sticks to it and neutralizes its effect and proliferation. The “illness” is then evacuated through normal process of urine, stools or perspiration.
