Willard Water is a surfactant.
As a kid, there was a show on Saturday mornings called, Mr Wizard. I
loved this show, so much so, that I even remember episodes. I
remember one in particular in which he floated something on a small
amount of water to show "surface tension." He then added a drop of
dish-soap, and whatever it was that floated, suddenly sunk. Mr
Wizard was teaching us about surfactants. The term surfactant comes
from three words: Surface Active Agent.
The science of surfactants is fascinating (if you enjoy things like
this), in that they have a head and a tail. The tails rejects water
(is hydrophobic) and the head attracts water (is hydrophilic). A
surfactant also exhibits two contrasting phenomenon: part is water
insoluble/oil soluble and another part is water soluble/oil
When you float some oil on top of water and add a surfactant, you
can see all of these things we've mentioned. The oil will disperse.
As I said, surfactant science is fascination stuff. And so is the
story of Willard Water.
Here is the full story on Willard Water:
While working in his laboratory, Doctor John Willard burned his
hand, and looking for something to cool the burn, he placed his hand
into a solution he had originally developed to clean Pullman cars.
The pain stopped immediately. Years later, the same scenario was
played out on ď60 MinutesĒ when an individual who had suffered
second and third degree burns in a welding accident had his burns
sprayed with this same solution. A few weeks later, with Harry
Reasoner, health officials, and a biochemist looking on, the welder
showed off his healthy, pink, unscarred skin.
The solution is water-Willard Water, though it goes by many
different names: Catalyst Altered Water, Lignite Activated Water,
Carbonaceous Activated Water, CAW Water, and LA Water. It is a
solution with active ingredients that alter the molecular structure
of water. It is not harmful, carcinogenic, or mutagenic in any
manner, and Dr Willard has over 29 US patents and a few foreign
Originally designed as a cleaner, Dr Willardís water has been used
at burn units, in veterinarian offices, on farms to water both
plants and animals, and in homes throughout America. The
testimonials on Willard Water could fill volumes, but letís get on
to its actual properties, which come to us from
Roy M Jacobsenís book, Aqua Vitae.
- It is a powerful antioxidant and free radical scavenger.
- It increases the absorption of anything mixed, or taken,
- It coats nerves to cancel pain.
- It aids in healing injuries.
- It is a powerful cleaning solution.
These are just a few of its properties, and another form, called
Willard Water XXX, has more of the lignite in it (which has been
changed so as not to contain any harmful compounds) and is charged
It has often been said that if you get sick, go see a veterinarian.
Vets can use things to heal their animal patients that physicians
may not use on you. Many veterinarians are using Willard Water to
scrub up for surgery, water their patients, and as an aid to any
medication delivered orally.
At one time, Dr Willard was willing to, with the support of the
University of Minnesota, put up all his patents to get enough
funding to go through the rigors of FDA testing, but as the good
doctor testified before a House Subcommittee, a representative from
the FDA had told him, off the record, that even if Willard Water
passed all the tests, it would not be passed. The representative
said his job was on the line because the FDA is controlled by the
large drug companies, and passing a product from a small nobody
would bring down the pressure.
Willard Water works. It just plain works. People use it for their
pets, in cleaning clothing, brushing their teeth, washing their
hair, and drinking daily one ounce per ten pounds of body weight. It
is cheap (you mix one ounce of Willard Water to a gallon of purified
or distilled water), it has an indefinite shelf life, heated or
chilled makes it work even better, and it has proven itself to be
perfectly harmless and non toxic. People claim it has healed
everything from arthritis to feline leukemia.
There are many copy-cats on the market, but with over 20 patents, it
is doubtful that Willard Water can be copied with any success.
Just one warning: if you are taking medication with Willard Water,
talk to your physician. Everything responds better, faster, and
stronger with Willard Water.
