Some Background Notes -- My Background With Ormus and Ormus-like
last revision date: 12/31/2023
As you may already know if you are familiar with my work, I am a degreed scientist with a graduate degree in the health-related sciences and additional graduate-level work in clinical psychology and acupuncture; if you wish to see a more extensive biography or take a look at the fields in which I perform scientific R&D and consulting, please see my main website at http://www.vinnypinto.us where a more detailed biography is available. Among my other interests in the sciences, I have for many years worked as a researcher with devices which have employed magnetic, electric or electromagnetic fields to modify the properties of water and other liquids. I have also experimented for years with devices which exposed water and other liquids (and foods as well) not to the more conventional types of fields listed above, but rather to any of several types of "subtle energy" fields produced by various types of beneficial microbes, gemstones, rock, minerals and trace elements, with some particular emphasis upon the use of certain ores containing high levels of rare earth elements and transition elements (as well as ormus forms of elements) for such treatments.
As I have related elsewhere on the web, I have worked with ormus-type forms of elements and ormus-like effects for years, since at least the early 1980s, although descriptive terms such as "ormus" or "ormes" did not emerge until somewhat later. However, my background in ormus research is very atypical, and very different from that of most researchers in the field. While most researchers in the ormus world have focused almost exclusively upon means of isolating or refining ormus using inorganic chemistry (including heating and distillation), I have, since the late 1980s or perhaps earlier, always been strongly guided by inner guidance from Holy Spirit and my angels to entirely ignore the methods of ormus isolation or production which have involved inorganic chemistry (i.e., methods employing fire, distillation, acid/base reactions, strong oxidizers, etc.), and instead, my research has always been focused on ormus or ormus-like effects derived or produced from what I tend to call "non-traditional" phenomena or technologies. And, rather than repeat myself extensively here, if you wish a detailed biography of various ormus-related fields in which I have worked over the years, I encourage you to take a look on the main page of this website at the bulleted list of "non-traditional" ormus and ormus-like technologies listed there. I have also reproduced an abbreviated list below, as follows:

First, Some Notes About So-Called "Ormus" Elements
a big sigh.... I believe that there
is a tremendous amount of myth and folklore and outright hype in the
ormus world, and I would prefer not to even delve into that realm in
Much as I have written in the past, much of what a number of the early
popularizers of "ormus" elements have ever written have simply
given me a headache or made me go cross-eyed, and
I learned quickly to ignore most of the words
many of the promoters in this field. (By the way,
if you wish to read some pretty reasonable and sane reports on ormus
and ormus-like effects, I can recommend the websites of Barry Carter;
his work seems to me to be much more grounded and clear and sane that
the reports of some of the earlier popularizers in this field; one of
his primary ormus sites may be found at http://www.subtleenergies.com/ormus/)
Ormus Water and Magnetic Treatment Devices for Water
Aside from the ever-present and massive levels of hype and malarkey, one of the main challenges of the ormus world, and a primary reason why it "can't get no respect" from most mainstream scientists and healthcare professionals, is that no one in the ormus world can agree on what tests really do detect so-called "ormus" materials. Worse, for the few who do agree on a particular test, their hypotheses, theories and models are often quite contradictory (and often self-contradictory as well) and often make no sense to most observers. A second problem, and one related to the issue of hype and malarkey mentioned earlier, is the truly bizarre and misleading frivolous (and often self-contradictory) "expert" statements made on many of the larger ormus vendor websites, such as:
"...our favorite expert says (but we forget the exact reference / citation...) that low pH will deactivate ormus...". sigh!
A third phenomenon which helps to create a massive credibility problem for the ormus field is that of vendors who publish fraudulent test results (i.e., claiming that their fictitious results for ormus percentage in their product were the result of testing with a non-existent four million dollar high-tech testing machine); I have related elsewhere on the web a tale of such a claim which I debunked in the late 1990s.
Much the same observation that I shared above about the lack of respect for ormus materials and properties in the mainstream scientific and healthcare worlds is also true of most devices which claim to employ magnetic fields to treat water (for any of a variety of intended effects, most of which are not related to induction of ormus-like properties), and for much the same reasons.
Ormus Water and Vortex-type Water Treatment Devices
I have noticed over the past few years that several vendors are now offering "ormus water" devices which use high-speed blenders as "vortex generators" and fixed magnets with alternating poles taped or glued around the perimeter of the blender body; these devices are claimed to produce "magnetic ormus water" offering great benefit to humans. However, while it is my impression (verified by some of my work in the lab) that many of these devices do indeed impart certain changes to the physical properties of water, if only short-term, due to the effect of moving the water through a magnetic field, my intuitive sense has always told me to totally avoid such gizmos, advising me that the water produced by such devices is not particularly useful or beneficial for me nor for most people whom I know (i.e., my friends, colleagues and consulting clients, etc.). In fact, various vendors of such devices have, over the years, offered to send me free samples of such devices for my use in testing, likely hoping to gain an endorsement from me for their products. In each case, these motorized magnetic vortex devices and similar treatment devices have left me cold, meaning that in each case, my intuition (some call it gut sense) told me that the technology was producing little or no beneficial effect in the water or juice (at least for me) which was treated. Thus, I have had little or no interest in these devices.
However, the only "magnetic ormus water" technology which I have ever encountered where my intuition immediately kicked in and told me that the resultant water produced by the device would have powerful and beneficial effects for me (and for many folks with whom I work on a consulting basis) was the "magnetic water" technology using magnetite sand developed by Dr. John V. Milewski. The device to which I am referring is a design for a static (i.e. the water is sitting still, not moving, and the device employs no moving magnets nor any other moving parts nor fields) magnetic-type water treatment device using magnetite sand, where a bottle of water is immersed in a cylinder submerged inside a mass of magnetite sand for several days at a time before being drunk as a nutritional supplement. One of several websites featuring John's research work with these devices may be found at http://www.hbci.com/~wenonah/hudson/ormusgas.htm
