The Alchemy Of Water
Metals have long been a big component in treatment and healing therapies in the field of Ayurveda. From fine powdered substances (Bhasmas) to simple water, metals have been added to ayurvedic formulations in order to alleviate certain conditions and disorders. The most commonly used metals are iron, copper, gold and silver. These metals are processed and undergo rigorous and thorough purification to avoid any negative effects on the body. However, using water charged with the qualities and energetics of the metals can be safe for consumption as they do not involve ingestion of the actual metals.
Disclaimer – Important:
This is strictly for educational use. Not medical advice. Toxic metals, including “heavy metals,” are individual metals and metal compounds that can negatively affect people’s health. In very small amounts, many metals are necessary to support life. However, in larger amounts, they become toxic. The most popular metal waters include: Gold water, Silver water and Copper water. They each have tremendous health benefits and can be quite simple to make. Below are some of the health benefits of each type of metal water.

Gold is not only beautiful but has divine properties that can assist in maintaining balanced health. It is also heating and so should be used in caution in conditions with excess heat.

Health Benefits Of Silver Water

Preparations for Metal Water
1. Collect the metal pieces that you need. When using Gold, Silver or Copper, it is best to use pure and unadulterated pieces. If using Gold, it is best to use pure 24ct Gold. This can be either in the form of coins or a gold band – Make sure that other ornaments and gems are not used. If using silver, ensure again that it is pure silver without gems and ornaments. Pure Copper utensils such as a cup or vessel are best for use.
2. Place the metal in a steel pot. 20grams of Gold and 30 grams of Silver is a sufficient quantity for usage. Copper pieces can weigh a little more; up to 50 grams can be used.
3. Add 5 cups of fresh water into the pot and boil steadily until half the water remains.
Roughly about 2 – 2.5 cups.
4. Strain through a muslin or cheesecloth and remove the metal pieces.
5. Take 2 teaspoons of this water three times a day for maximum benefits.
