Miracles are said to spring from waters of the grotto in Lourdes, France. In 1858, a young girl claimed that the Blessed Virgin Mary had visited her several times at the grotto. The girl said she was instructed to drink and bathe in the waters. Since then, more than 7,000 cures have been attributed to Lourdes.
Some say that the high germanium content of the water may have something to do with it. Germanium is a chemical element that can be found in trace amounts in some ores and carbon-based materials.
According to the research by Roberta Thompson who also a beneficiary of Germanium therapy stated Germanium is a rare semiconductor element that has a small band gap that allows it to efficiently respond to infrared light. The two very important characteristics of Germanium, as far as healthy function effects, are its natural ability to emit negative ions and the penetration of Far Infrared Rays into the human body.
Once Germanium is in contact with the human skin, the negatively charged electrons from the millions of Germanium atoms will attract the harmful positively charged electrons from the body.
In this day and age, our lifestyle exposes our bodies to harmful positive ions that are generated from mobile phones, electronic equipment, chemicals, acid rain and ultraviolet rays. The negative-charge ions from Germanium will help in blood purification and balance the positive and negative ions within the body. Other benefits can be muscle relieving effects and reduce fatigue and tiredness.
Some believe that eating more fruits and vegetables is more healthy for the body. However, this results in the body having a more acidic pH balance, which can make it weak and more prone to sickness. This is caused by the loss of electrons. The loss of electrons can be prevented by negative ions because they contain an abundant amount of electrons. This will improve the body’s immunity and give it more resistance to sickness.
The metabolism of the human cell is an extremely important process as it purges waste out of the body while acquiring nutrients from the blood. With more negative ions in the body, the body's metabolism process also increases its efficiency.
If the body has more positive ions in the blood, the body's metabolism becomes less efficient and slower. The human cells become weak and the body is more susceptible to sickness and the aging process becomes accelerated.
Germanium has the ability to emit a high percent of Far Infrared Rays that penetrate deep into the human body. When Far Infrared Rays are absorbed into the various organs of the human body, it activates, revitalizes, develops and strengthens them. It also increases temperature under the skin as well as promotes microcirculatory flow within the human body, thus improving one’s overall health condition.
Why is the Germanium on Titanium Plates?
Titanium has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of all metals. It has a very high tensile strength yet it is more than 42% lighter than steel. It is resistant to corrosive attacks by seawater, chlorine, and certain acids, and is able to withstand extreme temperatures. Titanium is also a good heat insulator as well as an excellent reflector of infrared radiation.
Titanium is an excellent choice for people who don’t usually wear jewelry due to sensitive skin.
What are the Benefits of combining Titanium with Germanium?
The combined use of Titanium with Germanium helps to retain body heat. While scientific research has not been conclusive, some people are said to have experienced the following benefits:
- Strengthens one's immune system,
- Increases blood circulation,
- Raises oxygen levels,
- Speeds up the metabolism of body cells,
- Regulates positive and negative ions within the body,
- Removes harmful toxins,
- Relieves joint and muscle pain,
- Alleviates physical stress, stiffness, cramps or discomfort,
- Controls swelling,
- Reduces water retention,
- Relieves fatigue and tiredness,
- Promotes quality sleep,
- Slows down aging,
- Prevents bacterial growth,
- Increases and maintains body warmth
It should be noted that the benefits experienced may vary from individual to individual. Like most things, you can find not only many articles that tout the benefits of Germanium, but also articles that state that there is no Scientific evidence to support those claims. If you are skeptical, the only thing you can do is try it for yourself.
