India possesses centuries of medical knowledge and natural remedies passed down from generation to generation. Today, most traditional practices and nature-based healing have been found to have scientific bases. Modern medicine has come to realise the importance and validity of Ayurveda as a way of life.
The question is how does one incorporate Ayurvedic practices
into every day life to boost health. One of the practices gaining popularity is
the use of copper utensils. Not just Indians, but ancient Egyptians too used
copper vessels to keep water fresh. They observed that drinking copper-infused
water had multiple health benefits.
In modern times, biotron technology can boost copper in our
tissues and cells .The micro clustered water molecules from biotron carry more
copper ions to the cell faster than regular purified water. Scientists
studied and evaluated this process with calcium ions in human cells. A
35%+ more calcium level is reported in cells of people consuming water passed
through the biotron process compared to normal purified water.
Copper-infused water wages
war on bacteria that cause infections. This is because copper has an oligodynamiceffect or, in
layman’s terms, this miracle metal has a sterilising effect that destroys
bacteria very efficiently, to the point that it is able to achieve results even
when antibiotics cannot. It is effective against antibiotic-resistant bacteria
or ‘supergerms’ such as Meticillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus. This anti-bacterial
property helps prevent infections from wounds and helps ensure speedy tissue
The same property makes the metal toxic to harmful bacteria
but it makes the body conducive for beneficial bacteria by helping maintain a
good pH level in the body. Copper strengthens the immune system by optimising
the number of white blood cells that fight off infections.
Another essential mineral for the human body is iron. It improves
the level of haemoglobin in the blood and regulates its flow. However, even the
proper utilisation of iron is dependent on copper.
Copper helps regulate blood pressure, the heart rate and triglyceride
levels. It also minimises oxidation of LDL cholesterol and reduces plaque
build-up in the arteries. In other words, copper improves the quality and flow
of blood in the human body.
Copper deficiencies are often seen in individuals with
thyroid diseases. The thyroid gland requires a certain amount of copper to
function optimally. Consuming copper-rich water can improve thyroid function.
Perhaps the most important function of copper in the body is
to synthesise phospholipids that help in the formation of the myelin sheath.
This sheath is a covering for nerve cells that helps faster and more effective
transmission of signals from neurotransmitters.
This trace mineral not only improves brain function but also
enhances your looks. It is also essential for melanin production, thelack of which can cause irregular
pigmentation of the skin. The antioxidants
in copper can help slow down aging and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The same
property helps neutralise free radicals and toxins, making it an anti-carcinogenic.
Bones, too, require copper. The anti-inflammatory property
of the mineral helps relieve joint pain and inflammation of bones that can
From the brain to leg joints, copper plays a vital role. India consumed adequate quantities of the mineral through water stored in copper vessels. It’s time to return to that.
