Russian Scientific Studies on the Property Change of Water on Epiphany Day

Russian Study: Physical Property of Water Changed on Epiphany Day

February 5, 2007

All water, including that in the water supply system, changed its physical properties on the Epiphany Day and the day before it, the Sysin’s Research Institute of Human Ecology and Environmental Hygiene of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences physicists found some days ago.

The institute’s scientists daily researched properties and quality of regular water from the pipe measuring quantity of ion radicals in it. From 17 January(1) the ion radical level started rising, and the water started smoothening. The water’s pH level was rising too making it less acidic, the Moskovsky Komsomolets daily said on Monday.

As they had expected, the activity maximum was reached in the evening of 18 January (2). The high amount of ion radicals made the water’s electroconductivity equivalent to that of an artificial catalyst (electron saturated water).

The electromagnetic activity started coming down in the morning of 19 January(3) and reached its normal level by 20 January(4).

The reason for that rapid raise of water electromagnetic activity on Epiphany Day was a great ion radical accumulation in the Earth lithosphere, which is ‘a real reservoir of electrons transferring most of them to water,’ Dr. Anatoly Stekhin, an experiment researcher, said.

The researchers also measured the Epiphany Day water’s level of structuring, freezing for that purpose some water from the pipe, some from the Moskva-River, and some from a church well.

‘Even the water supply system tap water, which is usually far from ideal, looked harmonic in the microscope when we iced it,’ Stekhin said.


1. In Russia, where this study was done, Epiphany is celebrated on January 19th. January 17th is the eve of the Epiphany celebrations.

2. There is a Great Blessing of the Waters service the day before Epiphany, January 18th.

3. The Divine Liturgy for the feast is completed on the morning of the 19th of January.

4. The day after the Epiphany celebrations.

ISS Crew to Study Epiphany Water

January 18, 2008

Russian scientists intend to set up an experiment on testing qualities of Epiphany water on board of the International Space Station, a staff-member of the Institute for Biomedical problems of the Russian Academy of Sciences Ph.D. Vladimir Tsetlin said.

Dr. Tsetlin is involved in research of exterior factors that influence drinking water for cosmonauts.

‘I was examining drinking water for cosmonauts, when I suddenly detected that its electro-chemical qualities had changed anomalously on the eve of the Epiphany‘, Tsetlin said in his interview to the Moskovsky Komsomolets daily.

According to him, present-day scientific researches confirm that water gains unusual qualities in the night of January 19.

The scientist told that water usually has maximum conductivity on 10:00 a.m. and on 06:00 p.m. when its molecules get active, and it start ‘calming down’ from 04:00 a.m.

‘One of the tests was made on the Epiphany eve’, Tsetlin tells. ‘I was impressed when I detected that molecules had calmed down much earlier in the evening of January 18. Water’s conductivity was reduced to minimum from 06:00 p.m. And it had remained in this condition till midnight’, he told.

Thus he recorded ‘the fact of disturbance in diurnal variation of water conductivity’ on the Epiphany.

Members of the international space expedition are to study this interesting fact.
