The Hydration Situation
October 30, 2018
(0:00) Jeffrey – These are our findings tonight on hydration levels the general public for FLFE, free trial participants and for subscribers, I’m Jeffrey Stegman. And I’m Clayten Stedmann. I hand it off to you Clayten.
Clayten – So we’re going to talk a lot tonight about scales and percentages and that type of language, so we’d better frame the language first for anybody that’s new tonight and a good refresher for those of us have heard it before. We’re going to use several scales primary go to scale is the Hawkins Scale of Consciousness because it’s such a high calibrating scale , it calibrates already at 840, we’re also going to use a percentage scale on a scale of one to 100, where 100 represents a certain value, which we’ll talk about. And the other scale we’re going to use is a parallel scale to the Hawkins Scale of Consciousness. So that is a scale where you choose what you want to have parallel to the Hawkins map, so that you can take advantage of all of the thinking and the research to that’s going into that Scale of Consciousness and corresponding high level of truth associated with it. So, for example, we’re going to talk tonight about on a scale of one to 100, where 100 represents 100% of the population, what percentage are hydrated at a basic level, and then we’ll talk about different levels as we move towards optimal. And then we’ll talk about people on the free trial with FLFE. We’ll talk about people who are subscribers, that’s people who are on the service over 90 days, and then we’ll talk about some other hydration tips that we keep learning about and, and open up for questions. There’s more and more information we have on hydration all the time, and we’re going to have a bigger and better Resource Center even after tonight on our webpage. We’re going to upgrade that, we have some other interesting plans for the future.
So, we were curious as to what percentage of the population would be kind of hydrated. So, the scale we use on a scale of one to 100, 100 represents 100% of the population on the planet Earth on average of the previous 30 days, our calibrations came out that 80% of the general population is chronically dehydrated. So chronically dehydrated, in our definition, would be on a scale parallel to the Hawkins a Scale of Consciousness where 1000 represents the most appropriate level of hydration for the human being, the level of appropriateness of the average person in the general populace on average over the previous we’ll say, 30 days would be above 200? No. So that would be the inquiry and the answer? If we go to the next level up what percentage of the population is between 200 and 500 hundred out of 1000 on a parallel scale on the Hawkins Scale of Consciousness, where 1000 represents the most appropriate hydration level. About 11%, or two to 500 out of 1000 from a 5% or 500 to 750 out of 1000, 3% are 750 to 900 out of 1000, and only one percent, or 900 to 1000 out of 1000. So that’s our research, I have friends and clients with clients in the health field. And we do talk about hydration quite a bit. And we’re always looking for new ways to understand how important water is actually, it’s probably hydrating liquid would be a better way of saying it. So that’s even a big distinction just there. Because water isn’t the only hydrating substance that we have. It’s just the main one that we’re used to talking about.
(5:00) Jeffrey – I think it’s just an amazing statistic, that 80% of the general population is below 200 on this scale as far as hydration goes, I mean, that that means that, you know, things aren’t working very well, they’re probably tired, you know, they may have cardiovascular issues I mean it’s 80% of the population. That’s just that’s an astounding figure to me. There’s lots of data out there about how to be hydrated and we’ll go through some of the recommendations that we see and sort of how we measure the effectiveness of those recommendations. And what we’re recommending. So, when we see people come in for the free trial, during that two weeks of the free trial, about 60% of free trial participants fall into that same range of being chronically dehydrated. So that’s 200 and below. So that’s the good news is, that’s much better than the standard population of 80%, that means people are, you know, more of the people that come in that are interested in the free trial are better hydrated. And what’s interesting is, subscribers are 45% of subscribers are chronically dehydrated. So that’s even better that to look at the positive side of it, that even more people are well hydrated or hydrated. But we can dig into the details a little bit, it’s interesting with subscribers, so all you subscribers out there, you might find this interesting. And this is looking over the past 90 days. So, if you’ve been a subscriber for 90 days, so 30% of subscribers are between 200 and 500 on the Hawkins map in hydration. So that compares to 11% of the general population. And again, we said 45% were 200 or below in hydration. So it’s just recalling the Hopkins map 200 is the level where things become positive above that, and negative below. so, I figure of 200 on the Hawkins map or below means, you know, you’re probably struggling due to your hydration. And what’s amazing is that our bodies get used to that the human system is so adaptable. So, when someone’s 500 to 750 on the Hawkins map, where 15% of subscribers are – they are starting to feel a lot better if you’re getting more optimal amounts of hydration. And then 10% of subscribers are in the 750 to 900 range. And that’s pretty extraordinary range, only 3% of the general population were in that range. And then we have 5% of subscribers that are between 900 and 1000 in their hydration level and that that’s really good. You know, that’s really, really well hydrated.
So, if you’re new if you’re coming in as a free trial experiencer, or if you’re new to your FLFE subscription, just take some patience with yourself as you move into drinking more hydrating liquid because when we’re dehydrated, chronically, the thirst receptors are not working as well. We may not feel thirsty. And then when we start drinking, we may just be flushing it out quickly. So, it takes some time to acclimate. And the minerals, putting minerals into the water really helps us to retain it. And to have the body use it optimally, to be optimally hydrating for us.
Clatyen – I just want to talk just a little bit about how easy it is to be dehydrated, one cup of coffee requires two and a half to three times the amount of water to process that one cup of coffee. So, if you’re not drinking much water and have a cup of coffee, it’s a 12-ounce cup, then you’re 30 to 36 ounces behind if you will. And it’s just it’s very easy to get into the habit of using stimulants to create energy. And so, we have lots of you know, drinks these days, like red bull and different types of energy drinks and coffees to stimulate obviously, some types of teas have a lot of caffeine, caffeine is a stimulant, chocolate, you know, has caffeine in it. (10:00) So, it’s just very common in our society to try to have the energy through a means that is going to cost our body resources, instead of having it be a natural result of a body that’s well hydrated and exercised and taken care of. We just use the stimulants to kind of get us through the day. And, and over time it pays I mean, in looking at hydration research they talk about how the body creates alkalinity if there’s not enough alkaline foods or enough water. And what it does is it takes calcium from the bones. And so that’s part of the contribution to many people having osteoporosis. And I’m not an expert on that. But I’ve seen it enough times. And we’ve tested the level of consciousness of that research. And it integrous. So, there’s a lot more to say about hydration, we just sort of wanted to remind everybody tonight and add a few levels of information that we hadn’t added before. So again, the same with pop, if you drink a can of pop a day it’s three x to recover that in water, just to neutralize the acids in your body.
Jeffrey – We don’t want it to sound like we’re lecturing and shaming anyone. We all need to work at it. It takes a little practice and time. And once you get those habits down, it does seem to go much easier, for me one of the big habits with taking a big bottle of water up to bed at night. So, when I get up in the morning, that’s the first thing I do is drink, you know, almost a litre of water. And that just gets me at least even, you know, starting the day. So, getting that habit and remembering to do that has really helped me with my hydration individually.
Clayten – Yeah, I’ve gotten into the habit of bringing this jug of water to work. And I don’t leave the office 90% of the time until I have drunk it all. I used to get up in the morning and look out into the sky through the living room window and have a liter of warm water and half-liter of room temperature water and drink that first thing in the morning. And I got out of the habit. So yes, we’re creatures of habit. If you can make it easy to have a good habit and more likely to succeed.
Jeffrey – So some of the benefits of optimal hydration are first the clearing a metabolic and healing waste and that’s something we talk a lot about in FLFE because the additional energy in the FLFE field, especially as new people, come in, as free trial or new subscription, the body now has more money in the bank and it goes to work doing healing that additional energy and that additional water helps clear out that waste from those metabolic process in your body. Muscle and joint function is improved with optimal hydration, we’ve more fluid in our joints, people could find that they get a reduction in pain. My father had some joint pain in his ankles and once he got his hydration up, it went away so that it really does make a difference. Brain function is also very dependent on hydration and energy level like Clayten said, we can drink more fluids and be hydrated and have energy level and we don’t need that cup of coffee in the afternoon and then cardiovascular health just having enough fluid to pump around you know, the heart doesn’t have to work harder – that there’s the optimal amount of fluid in the body. So what about the water Clayten? What would you say is optimal water? And what scale would you measure that on?
Clayten – Yeah, so people have asked us in the past well how do I know which water is good for me and how we measure it, and if I was to buy a filter what’s the kind of most reasonably priced filtration system, I can find to give me decent consistent water? So, we’ve got some thoughts about that. So, when we look at a parallel scale to the Hawkins Scale of Consciousness, and we’re looking at any substance that’s a food which water is, we’re always looking for at least 600 out of 1000 as a food. (15:00) Now I’m saying we, and again we are not trying to shame people, we what we eat, and not all of it is optimal food, you know, some of its entertainment food, or I habit food or whatever kind of food it is, but we’re looking to have something be over 600 in terms of water. So, the inquiry would be on a scale parallel to the Hawkins Scale of Consciousness, where 1000 represents the most appropriate water source for the body. We’re looking for 600. So typically, bottled spring waters are over 600 you buy them in five-gallon jugs.
If you’re looking to get a filter, we have one in the office. I have one at home, Jeff has one at home and we have a reverse osmosis and activated carbon charcoal in the office plus a device that removes any negative energy from the water. We don’t really need it around here because we’re in a small town but if you live in a big city if you recall Dr. Emotos work on the energy of a thought on water it changes the structure of the water when you have a lot of negative thoughts so if your water is coming through a big city you may want to get one of those. There are two filters – two companies that have reasonably priced filters that brings the average water to 600 and there’s one called Berkey. And there’s another company called Pro Pur and they are pretty reasonably priced, and they have a high level of standard in terms of the cleanliness of the water. There are better companies that have better filters, we’re not in the water filter comparison, business, it’s not what we do, we just wanted to give you a couple of entry-level reasonably priced systems that you can look at picking up for yourself. And I’ve used I’ve used one of these myself, and I had a friend who used the other and it was good water.
Jeffrey – We will be putting some of these recommendations we’re going to be talking about on the website in the hydration page, which you can find through the search function on the website. So, the other important piece about hydrating liquids is minerals. So, we recommend an eighth of a teaspoon of sea salt per liter of water. And we have some other recommendations as well. But it’s interesting that sea salt is more appropriate than Himalayan salt. Many people like Himalayan salt for its taste. But sea salt actually has more minerals in it of different kinds. So again, that’s the eighth teaspoon per liter. There’s also a company called Ambaya Gold. They have a product essence of life and it’s a fulvic mineral. And I use it my water, it’s a slightly yellow color, works really well for hydration. There’s another company that does a fulvic ionic mineral, which is called fulvic ionic minerals company – optimally organic again, we’ll put these on the website. And then interestingly, Emergen C many of you know that for these vitamin C packets, they have an electro mix, it’s really good. It’s good for 99% of people, it does have stevia in it. So, if you don’t like stevia you could steer clear, but it has magnesium and potassium and other minerals in it. We found that that to be good as well.
Clayten – Yes, we just the reason we mentioned sea salt first is it’s probably the least expensive option. So, when we were looking at water research, even today, we were seeing all this conflicting information. One person saying this one person saying that and we sort of thought to ourselves, well, I wonder what the truth of these perceptions are. So that’s the great thing about kinesiology, you can measure the truth or the lack thereof. So, we looked at one group of research and it said that they recommend eight ounces of water a day 8 times a day, we’ll 8 ounces of a hydrating liquid a day because we’re trying to get out of the thought habit of just thinking of water is the only thing that hydrates. (20:00) So, the 8 x 8 rule – 8 oz. of water 8 times a day. And that was 200 out of 1000. And so, what we determined from that as we went through the rest of this research, which we’ll share is that it didn’t really consider size or weight. And so, it’s going to have a minimal amount of truth to it because you really have to start to consider the size of the person the weight of the person and eventually the activity level. So that’s just kind of something we really were reminded of today.
Another source said that men would drink about 15.5 cups of eight ounces of water of 8-ounce cups a day or 3.7 liters, and women would drink about 11.5 cups or 2.7 liters a day. And that calibrated at 540. So, there was a distinction there between men and women, because men are a little bit larger overall than women. And so, they see a little more truth there. Because there’s a difference considering size, and even gender I assume that is mostly based on the size of the person. And we have a referral partner, a friend of ours, Dr. Rashid Buttar advancedmedicine.com and he suggests that we look at a guideline of about half of our body weight in ounces of water per day, or half of our body weight and hydrating liquid per day. And we calibrated that, and it came out pretty close to 1000 of 1000 as a guideline. And we’ll have to dig into that a little bit more.
And we were looking at for our people on our free trial, especially the first week because you’re getting all of that increased energy in the body and the body’s going to take that increased energy and do and use its own innate intelligence to do the healing and the cleaning out that it’s wanted to do, but maybe didn’t have the resources. So, for our first for our free trial, we suggest about two-thirds of the weight in ounces of water per day. And then back off to about half your weight in ounces of water, once you’re a subscriber and really, you know, try to get those minerals and get that 1//8th teaspoon of sea salt per liter for about 34 ounces of water, just to help the body hold on to the water and be able to use it. Because if we’ve been to hydrated for a while or thirst detectors start to get desensitized. And our body will tend to flush the water the first day or two. So, you’ll be going to the bathroom a lot which is kind of annoying. But then the body starts to acclimatize to have more resources and the thirst detectors turn back on and the body is able to hang on the water and the minerals just really help shorten that process and help the body optimize the water that’s coming in.
Jeffrey – I think when we did those original calibrations on the half the body weight in ounces per day at 1000, the advanced medicine or Dr. Buttars recommendation, I think that was for all people? Wasn’t that for the general population? (Yes) And you know, our recommendation really takes into account the, the extra energy as Clayten is saying on FLFE. So that’s why we start with two thirds, which is what’s on our website. And, you know, we don’t, we’re not doctors, we’re not making medical recommendations or advice. And you should always listen to your body and see how you feel and make sure you feel good with the amount of water you’re drinking. And it will be a little bit uncomfortable at first. But you know, these many of these recommendations are in the same range.
So, we highly recommend that you give it a try, at least for a couple of days and see how you feel. And keeping a log is a great way to do that. Where you just have a pad of paper that you carry with you. And however much you drink, you write it down. And you really see at the end of the day, how much you’ve had. Because many of us are as we said in the beginning of the webinar in our habits. We think we’re drinking plenty of water. We think we’re drinking a lot of water. And then when we really look at it, we see well gee, I only drank four glasses of water all day. So, it’s really important to keep track, you know, for a short amount of time till you really understand what your habits are. And what you what you’re actually drinking every day.
(25:00) Clayten – Yes. So, we’ve got a few questions here. Debbie asks I have someone that I live with who has a heart issue where she’s been told that she cannot exceed 64 ounces a day of liquid and when she does, she starts to gain weight. And if she gains more than three pounds in a day, then she has to take a water pill that has raises some havoc. So, I just wonder, if you’ve had anyone else with this fluid restriction, and what you would advise?
Clayten – We have had other people with the fluid restriction and we advise you to listen to your doctor. There are conditions that we’re not aware of, we’re talking but the general populace someone is reasonably healthy and yeah, absolutely listen to your doctor.
Jeffrey – We don’t have any advice beyond that on that particular subject. But listening to your body and listen to your doctor is definitely the way to go. How about you Debbie? How house how’s it going for you?
Debbie – Oh man. Well I drink I drink quite a bit of fluid and I actually have been losing weight on purpose for the last six months and I’ve been drinking water and a lot of times lemon water before and after I eat. I drew I do drink coffee in the morning, but I’ve been able to cut it in half lately not even really trying hard just kind of saying I think I’ll switch over to some hot tea instead or just have some more lemon water and I’ve lost close to 37 pounds and I feel great. I also have Kangon water and I don’t know if you’ve done any research into that. It apparently helps to make the water more alkaline. And, but yeah, you know, I, I feel good.
Clayten – I have a Kangon machine and it’s excellent water. Different people have different opinions about Kangon is just as good as anything I’ve ever tested, I will put it that way. Yeah, they’re expensive.
Debbie – Yeah, yeah. Well, just so interesting. I mean, I, I probably could deal with even more hydration even though you know, in my skin that I could, even though I know I’m getting quite a bit Gosh, I don’t even know. Oh my gosh. I don’t know, I’m dealing with these like 30-ounce cups. And I probably drink a few of those few of those in a day. And I’m not a huge person. And hot tea as well. But I love FLFE it’s great. I just love it.
Jeffrey – How long have you been a subscriber Debbie?
Debbie – Couple years? Yeah, couple years. Great. Yeah, it’s, it’s wonderful. We have it on a couple of our phones and on the house. And I love the Hawkins material. And the scale and all that. It’s really, really good.
(30:00) Jeffrey – Great, Well, you with us.
Clatyen – The one point you mentioned tonight, Debbie, is that a lot of us, we think we’re hungry. We’re actually thirsty.
Debbie – That is true. And I do find that water before and after I eat has probably been one of the things that has helped to lose the weight. And I know I’ve heard anyway that a lot of things that we eat or drink especially if they have sugar in them. And other some of the things you mentioned help to retain the fluid in the body. And so, you know, I guess the water just adds as an additional diuretic. That’s what we heard. Yeah. Thank you so much. Thank you both so much for what you do. And it’s great to say hello. And I appreciate so much who knows are and what you bring. So, thank you very much.
Clatyen Well, thank you, Debbie, for taking the time to talk to us. I see Serena put her hand up.
Serena – I came in a few minutes late. And I know you’ve said many times, how many and I think he actually talked about liters in that cup. So how many liters a day were you saying that we need to take?
Jeffrey – Are you on the free trial or have you been a subscriber for a little while?
Serena – I’ve been a subscriber for a little while. I always just think I’m drinking enough. But then I went to look because I just think I’m going to the bathroom all the time.
I don’t want to drink anymore. But anyway, I just looked in these cups that I drink, like my tea out of holds 4 actual cups, which is just under a liter, I guess
Jeffrey – Well, you can look at it in ounces. So, one of the recommendations that we follow with Dr. Buttar is half of your body weight in ounces. So, you would just take your weight in pounds, and just convert that into ounces, or just that same number in ounces, half of that per day.
Debbie – You mentioned sea salt. And I usually have the Himalayan salt. So, is there a couple of different kinds of sea salt like iodized or something? And I remember from years ago, is there a particular brand or just regular old salt in any store? Do you have a recommendation there?
Jeffrey – Well, you would want to find some salt that actually does a sea salt on it, you know, dried seawater. So, it just has so many different minerals, where a table salt is just sodium chloride. (35:00) So, you’re better off with sea salt. Mortons would just be your standard table salt. So, yeah, you can find it almost anywhere now, almost every grocery store carries it. So, an eighth of a teaspoon per liter. Whatever you’re most comfortable with. If you go to the website and type in hydration, there’s a page and the recommendations are in there in both ounces and in liters so both metric and American.
Debbie – Yeah, I know in those days where I drink extra the next day, I look so much better when I look in the mirror and so it has that aspect to it to me to drink more.
Jeffrey – Yeah, it’s really helpful for our skin.
Debbie -Yeah it actually, like erases lines and stuff too. So, from the vanity standpoint.
Jeffrey – Well we want to look good, it’s as good a reason as any to drink more water. It just shows the body’s working well, you know when it has what it needs. And it is good to keep track if you can, count the number of glasses. And as I was saying earlier, you may have missed it. One of the things I do is start early in the morning, I just take in a lot of water. You could take like a liter bottle of like Avion or some spring water, and I get water in five-gallon jugs. And I’ll just refill it. But so just first thing in the morning, just put down that liter and it just seems to really catch you up and make the rest of day go more easily.
Debbie – Yeah, I have spring water. I’ve been using that for years, especially when I was in Texas where they put fluoride in the water and I wouldn’t drink it from the tap. Yeah, so I live in Oregon now and I continue that because I know even though the local water department, tells me how clear their water is because of all their filtration, they’re still drugs and all kinds of things in the water that they don’t filter out.
Jeffrey – It’s good to be in a region where you don’t have fluoride, but most of the United States still has it. And it’s hard to get out of drinking water with a filter. And, It’s very persistent.
Debbie – It’s kind of expensive to get those filters that will take just about everything out of it. So, yeah, spring water works.
Jeffrey – How’s it how’s everything else going for you with FLFE?
Debbie – Good, good, life is bringing me challenges all the time that I guess I have to learn from. Over the last year since moving here a lot of things come up. So, I realized because I haven’t had so many things happening all the time. There is something that universe is trying to teach me or tell me and I’m in the process of trying to work that out.
Jeffrey – Yeah, well, that’s a challenge we all have I mean it’s, it’s interesting to listen and flow with what wants to happen,
Debbie – Right. And I my health is good, so I really don’t have anything to complain about. I’m grateful for all those good things. And, you know, I need to let go of the other irritating stuff that happens and move forward.
Jeffrey – Well great to talk to you. Thanks for thanks for joining us tonight. We have a question from Leni – how are you?
(40:00) Leni –Good, I’ve got a few questions. And sort of just a story that I’ve been really focused on water lately. And how important it is not just from the hydration level. But I wanted to ask you guys if you could kind of try to tie this in. Or if you have done any testing how it ties in with the effect it has on your hydration and you mentioned Dr. Emoto and there’s other more, not more advanced, but furthering that research. I don’t know the name of the scientist, but he seemed really cool. I watched the new video that came out through the Resonance Academy and they posted this video the other day, So I’ve been really conscious of water, like, especially the last month, it’s just been like, wow, like, I’m really starting to understand how much we can impact the world through our conscious connection with water. And so, I have a beautiful water. Can I show since I’ve got my camera? We’re here yet in Queensland. So, I’ve got this, now I’m not religious, by the way, but it’s all about the Goddess. And I’ve got like a beautiful little water alter. I pray with the water with my sons morning and night. And we’ve got like that, and the little crystal grid there. We basically like bless our water. And we’ve got a lovely water filter. And we don’t drink from the tap either. But we have friends that live out on a property and we go in the water that they get from the ground is the same water that you buy for like $8 Australian dollars a bottle you know, the 19 liter. I don’t know if you have these. So, I have a bit of water situation, which has been going for a while, so I like to fill them up at her property. And then I put them into that water filter. And so, it’s like, the intention is really, you know, I have to keep filling that water up. If it doesn’t just come from a tap so I’m constantly having this direct communion almost with the water. I get a glass of water I’m grateful for it. Because it’s come like I’ve been step by step with this water. And so how do you think that my question is, how do you think that actually or haven’t done testing on how that will affect the impact that has on your hydration?
Jeffrey – That’s a great question. Do you have some of the water? What was in the container thereby the altar stories that you already prayed? Which one have you prayed on? Can you show us some water that you have prayed on?
Leni – So this is the water and I basically just keep topping that up. And we pray with that all the time. And so, I know that that water is also evaporating into the air in the whole house. So maybe once a week after the top of that, because it’s evaporated. So, I know that it’s all coming into our environment as well as we’re drinking it too. I don’t drink that water. But I do like a little sort of thing where I put droplets around. And, you know, I do my own little intuitive thing. And it’s still evolving. But and I think things like that become more and more and more simplified as you go. Like, through the years, like it’s all fairly fresh form. It’s still like, just go with it.
Jeffrey – Well we have found with food, that praying over the food, and really asking it to come to its highest appropriateness for you that you can get it up to 1000 on the scale. So, I would think the same is for water and yet I remember Clayten, you and I were in a hotel room and all we had was Dasani water, and we’re so thirsty. So, we just prayed on it. And we just watched it, and we kept measuring and watched it going up, and it’s level of appropriateness.
Leni – So we had to fix the actual hydration like the amount your body can absorb that?
(45:00) Clayten – Well, we haven’t we don’t have percentages, you know, if the average level of let’s say you’re 500 and you pray on your water for two minutes, you know, what prayers at us what scale do you use, and you know, the scale of one to 100, where the water is the optimal level, you know what level is your water at? So, we’re pretty conservative when we talk about things, but I know that it changes the surface tension of water when you pray on it. I’ve seen studies on that I don’t have the names in my head. But I certainly recall Dr. Emotos research where they had a monk pray on a body of water, a lake and it starts to change the structure of the whole body of water. So I believe that if we pray on the water that it will hydrate more than if we don’t pray. And we pray on food, which contains a lot of water. Well, some to almost all water, watermelons, probably 98% I would imagine a baked bread would be a lot less maybe five to 10%, I’m not really sure but praying on everything helps to become more absorbable, it raises the vibration. So, one thing about eating or drinking water, you know, you can like the Dasani for example. You can pray on it. And then you have to pray that as it’s going through your GI tract as well. If you really want to, you know, get it to the highest degree you can through prayer. But I just don’t know that we have a number for you, our percentage that we can say that, you know, that’s increasing, but just encourage you to keep going. I think it’s beautiful, what you’re doing.
Leni – I’m a single mom. And I’ve got two babies, one is two and one is nine months. And the two-year-old has just started being really interested it so he wants to hop up here and do it with me. And he knows it’s so beautiful. And the other thing I wanted to just while we’re on the topic of like praying with is the tone Hu is a really lovely one. So sometimes while we pray with food or water or whatever. Instead of saying a prayer. We just keeping it really pure in the sound frequency and singing Hu or whatever you want in that tone. And you can actually feel that it just makes it whole. And also, what I’ve noticed, you can visualize a geometry around your food or water and it will just again make it whole and blessed. And like that’s a nice way to then ingest it.
Jeffrey – Yeah, it’s so beautiful to bring your kids in, you know, early to in this process. And, and the appreciation for the water, to actually go and get it somewhere and bring it home and that that gratitude and appreciation of it. I bet your water’s amazing. Yeah, thanks for sharing all this with us. I just love the altar and the ceremony that you’re creating, just from your intuition, and sharing it with your kids. Yes, lovely. Thank you. Well, and I really appreciate FLFE and it definitely had a big cleansing effect on our family. But now I think we’re cruising now so we’ve Yeah, it’s good. Thanks so much
Jeffrey -Christopher -he’ll probably have a couple upgrades he said he’s a researcher
Christopher – So I have a bit of a predicament I’d like to ask you guys a question about, since I’m a pilots, I’m not able to stay hydrated all the time. Because there’s no toilet in the cockpit. So, is there any workaround or anything you guys might suggest as far as keeping my hydration levels high as possible but yet we know the go to the four hours without using the restroom?
(50:00) Clayten – Well I’m assuming you’re probably managing that pretty well knowing you. The thought that’s coming to my mind it’s an intuitive hit is a gel. Like a hydrating gel with a lot of extra minerals, right? And that will probably give you a little bit of energy and optimize your minerals before you’re say going on a flight. You sort of have to get to know your body how much water can I drink before the flight? And how long do I have to drink it? If I’m going to fly at noon I have to drink a bunch of water at six seven and eight because most of it will go through me by 11 and then I’m good for the four hours that I’m flying I think it’s looking at your water cycle looking at how you intake it Chris and then if you feel like you need something up there I just I’m just visualize these little hydration packs with the gel to kind of give you a little boost just to help your concentration.
Christopher – Yeah, I think that’s what I’m looking for is some kind of way to keep my hydration level up as much as possible. I think the gel would be a good way of doing that.
Clayten – That’s a gift from above, I think .
Christopher – Just quick thing on my son, I think he already left. Prayer I found, depends upon the person. How much does it change the water when my son prays there is a different change than when I pray over water and when my wife prays over water. So, I find it depends on the person, the condition they’re in at the time. And there’s a little thing that effect how powerful the prayer is.
Jeffrey – Yeah, well, the level of consciousness at the time. And certainly, you know, what we’re seeing with the manifesting your people are seeing on the service – their level of consciousness goes up being on the service, that level of conscious really affects what you put out in the universe. And what comes back, you know, sort of your broadcasting power, I guess, you know, including prayer.
Clayten – Some people put rocks are crystals in their bottom of their water containers. And they find that that holds the intention a little bit better than water because the water is moving through all the time. So that’s another possibility that you can do. I agree with you, Chris. It’s one of those things you can’t say how much it’s going to improve it because it depends on the person, their state, the prayer the source of the water. It’s a great question to ask.
Christopher – Cool. Well, thanks. A lot guys I appreciate FLFE . I just bought a condo and put it on that as well. So, I’m using it quite a bit. So, appreciate what you guys are doing and always look to catch up with you guys whenever you have some time.
Clatyen – Anna Marie was asking what minerals do we use and why? I use sea salt because it’s inexpensive and it’s really good. but there is Celtic sea salt. I forgot to mention that earlier. I used to take mineral drops all the time, but I got out of the habit of it – might be worth looking at it. I’m looking at getting a test Jeff on sort of test on looking at bone density and trying to find out where I’m at. I haven’t done a lot of research on it. And if we’re going to do something with kinesiology typically what we’ll do is we’ll do hundreds of examples of people that are in different states. So, we check people at different ages, different sources of water, there’s a lot of work to try to figure out how to do the test with kinesiology and feel really comfortable with the results. So, looking to do a little bone density test, I did one at a Health Food Fair few years ago, but might be worth paying attention to that and really up in my minerals if I need to.
Jeffrey – Well, the fulvic minerals very interesting to look at. On the Ambaya Gold website on essence of life, there’s information about those minerals and why you know why they’re important, what’s the benefit and I find in my own use of those minerals that they do help my energy level and, and my ability to hydrate with the water that I’m drinking. (55:00) So, there’s something about those fluvic minerals that are helpful and, with other minerals, if you’re receiving magnesium, we talked a lot about magnesium, but potassium is another one that’s important for us for our balance of minerals in our body. So those minerals around our nervous system and in muscle system balance, like calcium and magnesium and potassium, so it’s important to get those as well. And you can look at recommendations that are with doctors that you trust on those minerals, but and then there’s the trace minerals would be the coppers and some of the other things that you don’t need as much of but it’s good to get small amounts of minerals.
Clayten – Mario was asking with all the concern about the amount of plastics in our food and beverages, particularly bottled water. What’s the best source of water for us to drink? Well, from a reduction of plastics point of view, I have a glass bottle which I showed you earlier. This is what I do that the office we have a water filter here, I fill it up sometimes I bring it in with my Kangon water or sometimes I’ll just fill it up at the office. We have a system here it’s not quite as good but it’s still quite good. And it probably would be good for me to have a little sea salt container my desk and just put a pinch in. From a from a plastics point of view. If you have a system on your tap that’s going to reduce your plastic consumption, I have a one-liter water that’s a Nalgene bottle. I carry that around a lot. I used to drink a lot of bottled water and I used to reuse the bottles like 5,6 or7 times. But plastic is an estrogen imitating chemical and it really affects our hormones, as Laurence said down below. So just from the place of reducing the amount of plastic, the more you can get it from the tap or have a little acreage, you can get it right from the well. Let’s the best bet.
Jeffrey – Yeah, I buy five-gallon bottles of water, I have it delivered in they are in glass. And the glass gets recycled and reused back and forth. But there’s no plastics there at all. And then usually I carry two leaders in a metal bottle. And that’s, when I move around the world, that’s what I’m drinking out of. So, I tend to not use plastics at all in any of my drinking containers. So that’s a great question.
Clayten – Denny was asking, can you speak to us about fermented cod oil, cod liver oil or other oil and magnesium at night? Yeah, I find magnesium helps me sleep. Sometimes if I’m restless, especially like say depending what time we finished tonight with all the lights that we have shining on so that you can see us the body is thinking it’s the middle of the day because of all the blue lights coming into our retinas. Right so ultimately, we need about three hours of low light or without white light to optimize the melatonin production which helps asleep and it’s also the body’s most powerful antioxidant. Magnesium is one of those things you can do at night to help you sleep obviously we talked about essential fatty acids which cod liver oil is, or there’s a lot of essential fatty acid in it and magnesium within 30 minutes of each other to create the synergy in that food to optimize the myelin sheath and the nervous system. And our research said it’s best not to eat past seven o’clock, but you know, I do it a couple times a week. So, taking supplements after seven is food so depends what you mean by you know, night there’s a few thoughts to share. And you probably have a few more Jeff.
Jeffrey – Yeah, I definitely I take both of those at night I take fermented cod liver oil now that blue ice product I take two of those at night two in the morning and I do my third dose of magnesium at night along with some additional fish oil and it really does seem to help me particularly if I’ve been doing more exercise and my hips gets sore or tighter, that magnesium really helps at night so that’s a great thing to do. (1:00:00) And when I take it, I do seem to get up less to go to the bathroom in the night. So, having this additional minerals at night I think is important that way.
Clayten – Yeah, sometimes hard to keep the EFAs – I’m finding it a little bit difficult lately, probably because I’m exercising more to keep my levels up. So, I might I might look at doing something different maybe at night more.
Jeffrey – Yeah, I do a dose in the morning with breakfast, one at lunchtime and then again at night before bed when I remember I don’t do it every night.
Clayten – It’s the night one that tends to fall off the consistency wagon. So, Lawrence was talking about the bottled water and the plastics and the different problems that are caused, in general. Any ideas about the situation?
Well, recently, I’ve seen as a young man who started a company that’s pulling plastic out of the ocean. So there’s a gross kind of physical way that society is moving towards doing something I don’t know if there’s more plastic going into the ocean, probably still more plastic going in than is coming out. I think typically Lawrence we always look for individual responsibility to just get a water treatment system on your tap and or, and or like Jeff get it delivered and five-gallon bottles so that there’s less waste and less contact with water, I use a bottle plastic bottle that has no BPAs in it. I know Jeff says that he uses metal, so I would say taking personal responsibility is the first thing we can do.
Jeffrey – Brian said I’ve listened to you guys with Ms. Regina. Could you go over what type of emergency stuff that you talked about? Clear the brain fog? Yeah, that was the emergency product that we talked about earlier. That was Emergen C electro mix. That that was a product that most people can take it does have potassium in it which I think was helpful in the conversation that we had with Regina was the potassium balance. So that’s something you could add and during that conversation what also came up or and maybe one another conversation with her was essential fatty acids, was getting those fish oils that really helps its brain fog. The brain runs on fats, if you follow any of any of this body hacking. It’s going on with people putting fats in their coffee and bulletproof where they’re really loading up on fats in the morning. It’s all about your brain. It’s all about feeding your brain fats. So, that’s something if you’re experiencing brain fog, you might up your levels of fats, particularly absorbable by the brain, small chain, coconut oil or fish oil can really help with that.
Clatyen – Yes, Glenn and Pamela said they’ve been a subscriber for about a year and a half, they’ve been taking the EFAs and magnesium since then, is it beneficial to keep taking them? Or is there a time when it’s okay to stop because your myelin sheath has been improved? That’s a great question. We had somebody call the office last week to ask that and so we were talking about it the lunch room and you know, there’s no one answer for that. I’ve done 10s of thousands of calibrations on nervous systems we did so much research, Jeff, we did hundreds of experiments in different dosages. And so, I’ve got enough data on it that I trust my calibrations. So, I just tested it myself. But there’s no way that I know of, to calibrate the level of optimal efficiency of the nervous system in the context of achieving and staying in enlightenment that I know of other than kinesiology. So, I wish I had an answer for you. But I don’t, I haven’t found anything out there that is measuring the strength of the nervous system. (1:05:00) So, when you look at the strength of it, you’re looking at the size and the carrying capacity for energy. And there’s certainly Olympic athletes or the trainers of Olympic athletes. I forget the name of that one trainer back in Toronto. But he’s been training Olympic athletes for decades, he’s got one of the best track records the industry and his recommendations for potassium and magnesium were almost parallel to ours. And so, we’re finding more and more people that are recognizing this is a big deal. I just don’t know how to measure it. How you feel how you feel is one indicator, I know that if I’m exercising more, doing something different, spending a lot of time in a high consciousness field, I feel my body doesn’t feel as good if I if I get off my supplements for a couple days, it really starts to affect me. So, like, it affects my ability to stay in those fields and stay present with the energy and with what’s happening. So those are some guidelines. And if you find some way to measure it I’d love to know.
Jeffrey – Well, it’s an interesting context, the context of achieving enlightenment. So, if you look at the Hawkins map, and we’ve done calibrations on different people around the planet, for example, Amma the Hugging Saint, at 850 or 840 on the Hawkins map. And it’s very few people at those high levels, but the amount of energy, the amount of light that they carry or that they shine is just incredible, you know, logarithmically when you’re talking about every average of 400 and North America up to 850, it’s just an incredible amount of energy. So, if we’re on a path of self -development and growth, and we’re continuing to rise in consciousness, then our nervous system keeps up by increasing in size, it seems to be a natural effect that happens and to do that we need those nutrients. So, I don’t know it all depends on where you are in your life, and what kind of accelerated path you’re on. And as Clayten said, how much time you spend in a high consciousness field like healers, people that create a high consciousness field for a living, need to feed that system just for it to continue to be strong and continue to build its capacity. One of the things we found that many healers, and many people that are channelling and doing other things there at 7, you know, they go to 700 on the Hawkins map during while they do that work, and it seems to just like suck up the magnesium and the essential fatty acids to just disappears from your system. So there are things going on there that we may not completely understand. But it does seem to take a lot of that if you’re spending time in high consciousness fields.
Clayten – We have another person my Monique, she’s been she’s been putting your hand up here.
Monique – Hi. I want to know, what do you recommend for children under five for hydration?
Jeffrey – Good question. Well, I wouldn’t say we have a very well- defined definition there. So, the body weight you know what I would do is take a look at Dr. Buttar’s advanced medicine website but there may be other sites that suggest hydration levels for children. And that’s where I would start. I mean, I think our half the body weight in ounces is geared towards adults. So I think, yeah, you need to do a little bit of research out there and see what you could find, but love to hear back because we could add it to our site once you know if you find some research. (1:10:00)
Monique – Thank you. I appreciate everything that you do go great. I just wondered about things that you knew – I was thinking about the watermelon juice, coconut water, you know, things like that, in addition to good alkaline water, but I was just wondering if you already had some testimony?
Jeffrey – Not as of yet, but we’d love to hear.
Clayten – One of the things I did come up in our research today was that about 20% of the hydration is typically best to come from your foods. So, if there’s a formula for half your body weight in ounces of hydrating liquid, then the balance of the hydration would come from the food. So that’s something to consider as well. Looks like Sandra is also requesting got her hand up.
Sandra – This isn’t a hydration question. I have tried the home and the trial and the phone trial. And in the beginning, I love it. I love love, love it. And then and then energy like, I don’t know how long it is, maybe a week, the energy seems to gather and get stuck in my head. And then I have to turn it off because I can’t I can’t handle it. You’re just increasing and increasing. Have you heard of this? Can you do you have anything to say? Because I love I love it, but I can’t keep it on.
Jeffrey – What kind of experience was it being stuck in your head? Was it headaches or just a feeling of energy? What was happening for you?
Sandra – It feels like, around my third eye, it just starts to get this pressure and more and more and more. This is both on the home and the mobile. The home one started to make me really dizzy as well it’s stronger I think, right?
Clayten – It’s clearing the negative history off the land. So, it’s a little different type of energy, though. And how long have you tried this for?
Sandra – I tried both the 15-day trials.
Clatyen – Well, one of my assumptions right off the bat is that there’s a period of adaptation that some people experience. And I was thinking of Ashley’s brother, down in Sedona, Jeff. And they found that they can have it on for a couple hours of a day. And it was really great for them, then whatever was going on in their life, or whatever is going on the land. And they’re both pretty highly evolved people doing personal work for decades. He’s a he’s a shaman and a tour guide in Sedona and is really quite a lovely person. He found that it was only three or four hours a day that he felt really great with it. And then he said he started having too much energy in his body. So that would be something I would consider for you is to experiment with it. The assumption for me would be that as your body adapts to this energy and it’s doing all these metabolic healings and other things that it does when it has extra energy the body is so intelligent it takes energy is just starts doing things with it. You’ll adapt to the energy over time. That was my assumption with Ashley’s brother, but I haven’t talked to for quite a while. I don’t know if he’s on the service anymore. That’s what I would suggest with you is to try it for a certain number of hours a day and then bump it up. And if it starts to get too much, then just back it off. (1:15:00)
Jeffrey – So, you could do another free trial. Just ask the office and let them know you talked to us. We’re happy to start another free trial for you. And then you can just turn it on and off. Try it for a shorter amount of time and see what happens. You know, we have had people that are very sensitive to energy, and they feel it flowing through their bodies. Getting stuck doesn’t seem to be often that we hear that though people say they get a sensation in their third eye when they’re feeling a lot of energy.
Clayten – Well, I would suggest you look at an energetic medicine process, Sandra, where, if you ask your body to release anything restraining you from integrating the FLFE energy and ask the body where that sensation is in its own innate intelligence for this considering the chakras, the nerves, the aura considering all those things, and if your body is trying to adapt to the energy you can ask it, is the sensation beneficial for you and just try to stay with it. Or is it a little overwhelming? So, you could ask the body that and then you can ask the body to give you the sensation in its system where the energy wants to best be utilized. And so, what you might find is that it might switch from the head to another part of your of your system, maybe to a different chakra, maybe to a different energy center, but our bodies are full of energy centers, it might down to you know, to the shoulder. I’ve had a lot of that I had a shoulder injury a long time ago. So, and but we’re just trying to move the energy through the body, it can tend to find those weak spots and get a little bit stagnant there. So, I would try that as well.
Sandra – Okay, all right. This also happens to me when I’m on my computer. I can only spend a little amount of time on my computer because I get the same sensation in my head. My third eye – that gets painful.
Jeffrey – Interesting. Well, I wonder if you’re EMF sensitive. You might as you go back on the free trial. If you want to do that. You could ask someone in the office, tell them that you’d like to try the EMF mitigation program covering right now we’re just launching a pre-launch. It’s a pre-launch experience. And then in December, it will go on to the services a regular part of the service. So, if that’s happening, that that’s a clue. I had someone who I was talking to it was extremely tired, couldn’t do anything around the house, could even couldn’t even take a shower a day. And when she went on the EMF mitigation, we thought it was Lyme disease. And when she went on the EMF mitigation, she started to get her energy back and she was able to work. Some people are very sensitive to it.
Sandra – I’m very sensitive to that.
Jeffrey – We have this EMF mitigation program, which harmonizes the energy from the EMFs in the location where you are this right now, it’s just for the home and when we launch it in in December to be for the phone as well. But so, it’s either mitigating or it’s neutralizing, or it’s sort of dissipating the energy. So be that may be helpful for you. Because it feels like you’re that’s causing you some discomfort.
All right. Well, are there any final questions?
(1:20:00) Clayten – People are wondering how to measure hydration and the body and there is a skin test. And Joanne is mentioning that. We’re just sort of testing the level of consciousness of the different skin tests. What they do is they suggest is you take a piece of skin and hold it up and see how long it takes to go down and that will tell you how hydrated you are. So, I just haven’t run the numbers on it. So, I think there is some truth to it, but I just don’t know how much. And Allen was asking about four-stage water. We had a friend up this summer and he brought his four-stage water machine. We were using it around the office and we were finding that it had an effect, there’s a positive effect, especially in recuperation. So, I don’t know like during a meeting, you know, when you can get tired near the end. It just felt like when you had that thing, you just bounce back faster than usual. I have a rebounder in my and office I’ll jump and down on the rebounder. Or I’ll go for a walk. That’s one of my ways to recuperate. But this is another way and I don’t know about the particular one that he’s mentioning. But four-stage water is an integrous concept from our research with the Kinesiology. Margaret is asking about mega hydrate. That’s a good very good product. We did mention it it’s from Patrick Flanagan – I’m not sure if he is a doctor or not, but it’s a good product.
Do you measure energy in the water? We typically measure the level of appropriateness of the water Brian as an overall kind of substance. So that is energy to a degree we use the Hawkins Scale of Consciousness or more accurately, of parallel scale to the Hawkins Scale of Consciousness. You could use it for such at scale, and we’re doing muscle testing or kinesiology. That’s how we’re measuring it.
Jeffrey – Yeah, Brad, I think we’re all different. For me, it’s taking that liter of water first thing in the morning. It’s been important, it doesn’t seem to come through me very fast. It’s like I’m in a deficit at the time. He’s asking about, whether it’s more efficient for the body to take small doses over time, rather than a liter at once. And I think you’re right, in general, that it can go through you pretty quickly if you if you kind of overwhelmed the body’s ability to absorb it. And I find when I’m really behind, you know, where I’m really dehydrated, that pounding down a liter really helps me get back. But I think there is some overrun that happens on a quick trip to the bathroom. I think it’s interesting that spacing out the doses, those seem to work for me during the day and drinking liter seems to work for me first thing in the morning.
Clatyen – The other good thing about drinking a liter first thing in the morning Brad or large amount, if you drink it quickly, it kind of flushes your system from the night before, right? So oftentimes, when you go to the bathroom, the urine will be foamy in the toilet, because that’s a sign that it’s cleansing. And so that’s part of the benefit. I didn’t mention that earlier about drinking a liter pretty quickly in the more or a large enough amount that you kind of flush the system out. And when I was doing it right away, and more within a few minutes of getting up. And then half an hour later, I have my breakfast. And that’s what really worked.
Laura’s asking about Gerald Pollacks work and it’s definitely good. (1:25:00) Eating water from vegetables is desirable, especially it it’s organic, it’s more and more important, and the issue of drinking water around meals, I try not to drink right before a meal, I try to do large amounts of water in between meals. So that’s something from Grant and Pamela as well, we hadn’t mentioned yet today. So, let’s, let’s close it up. Jeff, do you have some last thoughts, I’m just gathering mine.
Jeffrey – Well, I’m just very grateful for the community and for these discussions and, and your input, there are many, many useful insights here tonight. And we just couldn’t do it without you. And I’m really grateful to have you with us on this journey. And there’s just more to come and just very excited and to see where we’ll be a year from now. I mean, we know we have the EMF program that’s coming that’s in December and then following that next year we will be introducing the brain optimization which will pull all this together. So, we’re just really excited by all that and just your community Facebook page and all of you that write in and call into the office and join us on these webinars. So, thank you for all you do in the world.
Clayten – I also want to express my gratitude for the questions and you taking the time to watch these and, interact with us. It’s interesting how much research we’ve done on water. And then in the planning of the webinar, we still forget to mention things like try not to drink just before a meal. That stuff is almost obvious, but I forgot that it’s true. But that’s just an example of how the community can help each other because you reminding us helps me remember all the research we’ve done and, and it’s helpful to not drink right before you eat. So, it’s just really nice that we’ve been able to talk to people Jeff, more and more recently, with people putting our hands up. It’s much more interesting and fun than just answering questions in the Q and A. It’s difficult sometimes to put your questions into a sentence or two. It’s a good discipline in some ways, but it’s just delightful to talk to everybody. It’s nice to get to know you personally. And I just look forward to more of these conversations and we are looking at doing a pretty big upgrade on the hydration aspect of our website and our service, so we’ll just let you know when that when that comes out. Thank you.
