How does Cera Shower Heads encourage hair growth and prevent hair loss?
Sufficient moisture is necessary for healthy hair. Water activated by Saiseiko Ceramic Balls (SCB) helps make hair stronger, smoother, healthier and prevent hair loss. Smaller water clusters helps increase the cleansing power to deeply cleanse the scalp. Your hair and body are bathed in a natural waterfall of Far Infrared Rays (FIR) which turn into heat energy from light energy thereby directly improving circulation and metabolism and alleviating skin complaints such as eczema as the water travels over the skin.
Can Cera Shower Heads repair skin problems?
Our range of shower heads can promote beautiful skin with youthful vitality and radiance and also help to rebuild your skin’s natural elasticity. In addition, our products have shown to help restore the natural balance in your skin, reducing the affects of many skin conditions. Clear skin can improve confidence and remove the discomfort that many conditions cause.
By neutralising toxins and chlorine from the water, it is possible to see noticeable improvements in skin conditions and increased immunity.
Can Cera Shower Heads remove residual chlorine?
No, but it can help to relieve the irritation that comes from residual chlorine, but does not remove residual chlorine itself. The water passing through the Saiseiko Ceramic Balls (SCB) is ionized. The ionized water clusters wrap around the residual chlorine molecules and renders them harmless.
Does water have memory?
According to Japanese scientist, Dr. Masaru Emoto, “Water has a memory and is influenced by its environment”. In his work entitled ‘Hidden Messages From Water’, it has been shown that water taken from pristine sources which has been frozen to -30ºC, then thawed back out to -5ºC and then viewed through a microscope, can form into beautiful hexagonal structures similar to how a snowflake looks like.
What is more surprising and interesting is that the same effect will be produced by speaking, thinking or writing kind and loving words that are focused towards the water. The water seems to understand the resonant frequencies of love and kindness as well as those of hatred and ill will and reacts accordingly. It very well may be that water not only has memory and intelligence, but quite possibly consciousness as well. Water also appeared to be receptive to meditation, prayer and healing energy transmitted from a great distance through the power of thought.
Dr Emoto’s work shows that water that has been or is polluted with man-made contaminants will not develop hexagonal structures. Water that has been exposed to these pollutants (even though it has been filtered) has shown to still possess the same frequencies or signatures of the original chemicals. This is basically due to the memory of the water or the water molecules retaining the signature frequencies from the toxins the water has been exposed to.
What are the benefits of Negative Ions?
The astounding degree to which negative ions can contribute to good health is becoming increasingly apparent. Many scientific studies have been conducted over the years (mainly in Europe and Russia as ionization of the air is mandatory in some of these workplaces) showing how exposure to high levels of negative ions drastically or significantly reduced asthma and allergy symptoms, as well as other respiratory -related illness.
- Studies have also shown a link between negative ion treatment and benefits for the following:-
- Migraine Headaches
- Mental Performance and Concentration
- Physical Performance
- Cancer Treatment
What are Negative Ions?
Negative ions are created in nature and they use nature’s power sources, such as waterfalls, lightning and sunlight to build an electrical charge. The human body consists of both negative and positive ions. Positive ions can be mainly found in urban places such as cities and industrial areas where air pollution is high.
Negative ions can filter dust, smoke and other pollutants from the air, creating cleaner air. For the human body to function at its optimal level, it needs to inhale fresh air and higher levels of negative ions have been shown to have a number of health benefits.
Metabolism, which is the process of acquiring nutrients from the blood and excreting waste out of the body, is extremely important to the human cells. The more negative ions there are in the blood, the more efficient the cell’s metabolism process. On the contrary, the more positive ions there are in the blood, the slower and less efficient the cell’s metabolism. This causes the body’s cells to become weak and the body will tend to get sick more easily and faster.
Thus, negative ions can have a positive effect on people, but positive ions can have a negative effect on people.
Our CeraElite shower head produces 160,000 negative ions per cubic centimeter; when tests were carried out at Niagara falls, 100,000 negative ions per cubic centimetre was measured.

How does Far Infrared Rays benefit me?
FIR has the ability to penetrate, refract, radiate and reflect. The human body can absorb FIR because of its deep penetrating ability. When FIR penetrates through the hypodermic level of a person’s skin, it transforms from light energy into heat energy. The thermal effect within the deep layers of tissues cause blood vessels in capillaries to dilate, promoting better blood circulation, and the heat produced helps to get rid of body toxins and metabolic wastes through sweating.
Other benefits include:
- Strengthens the cardiovascular system
- Eases joint pain and stiffness (without toxic side-effects)
- Relaxes muscles and increases flexibility
- Relieves pain in back, shoulder and neck
- Deep cleanses skin
- Helps burn calories and controls weight
- Improves the immune system
- Alleviates stress and fatigue and increases vitality
- Relieves respiratory ailments – chest colds, asthma, bronchitis
- Helps with the excretion of harmful substances such as heavy metals and lactic acid through sweat and oil glands
- Activation of cells and tissues, improving the body’s metabolism
- Enhances the repair of the body’s cells
- Improves oxygen levels in the body
- Eliminates fats, chemicals and toxins from the blood thus improving circulation
- Prevents the growth of bacteria
- Balances the acidity in the body
- Normalizes cholesterol levels
- Helps to overcome insomnia
- Helps to eliminate of disease causing bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites
What are Far Infrared Rays?
The complete spectrum of sunlight consists of visible and invisible rays. The visible rays are Red; Orange; Yellow; Green; Indigo; Blue and Violet. The invisible rays are Ultra Violet (UV); X-Rays; Gamma; Cosmic; Microwave; Long Wave (LW); Electric Wave and Infrared Rays.
There are three groups of Infrared Rays – Near, Medium and Far.
Numerous substances in the earth generate Far Infrared Rays (FIR), including the human body. Of all substances, ceramics are known to generate highest levels of FIR.
The wavelengths of the FIR emitted by ceramics are between 4 to 14 microns, and provide the best effects on people. Saiseiko Ceramic Ball (SCB) technology generates the same range of wavelengths. Approximately 80% of solar energy is made up of FIR and 60% is between the range of 10-20 microns. The human body generates FIR between 8-14 microns.
FIR are also known to reduce water cluster size. Water cluster size reduced by SCB greatly increases the power of the water. Also, smaller water clusters penetrate easier into the pores, which helps moisturise the skin and maintain body heat.
Is De-mineralized Water safe to drink?
Since the creation of this planet, rainwater has been washing down minerals from the mountains into the ocean. Ocean water has been saturated for a long time with specific minerals, yet rivers continue to carry down the minerals. The result is that at the bottom of the ocean there are tons of mineral deposits precipitated. If we knew how to recover the minerals from the bottom of the ocean, we would be very rich.
Awareness of the importance of minerals and other beneficial constituents in drinking water has existed for thousands years, being mentioned in the Vedas of ancient India. A study by World Health Organization in 2004 concluded that our water must contain some trace minerals in order to promote good health.
Demineralized water; reverse osmosis water; deionized water; desalinated water; distilled water – whichever way you want to call it, they are ALL water stripped of its essential minerals.
Long term use of drinking demineralized water can be dangerous because of the rapid loss of electrolytes (sodium, potassium, chloride) and trace minerals like magnesium, deficiencies of which can cause heart beat irregularities and high blood pressure. Cooking foods in distilled water pulls the minerals out of them and lowers their nutrient value.
According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, “Demineralized water, being essentially mineral-free, is very aggressive, in that it tends to dissolve substances with which it is in contact.”
Are Reverse Osmosis systems safe to use?
After analyzing hundreds of scientific studies concerning demineralized or RO water, the World Health Organization (WHO) released a report stating that such water “has a definite adverse influence on the animal and human organism.”
What is alarming is that consuming RO water for even just a few months can create serious side effects. Illustrative of such short-term exposures are cases in the Czech and Slovak populations who began using RO-based systems for final treatment of drinking water at their home taps between 2000-2002. Within several weeks or months, various health complaints suggestive of acute magnesium (and possibly calcium) deficiency were reported. Among these complaints were cardiovascular disorders; tiredness; weakness or muscular cramps.
The use of RO water gets worse. Much worse. Because RO water doesn’t have enough minerals, when it is consumed, it also leaches minerals from the body. This means that the minerals being consumed in food and vitamins are being urinated away. Less minerals consumed plus more minerals being excreted equals serious negative side effects and big health problems. In a scientific study performed to see if minerals consumed in food can make up for the lack of minerals in RO water, scientists concluded that “reduced mineral intake from water was not compensated by their diets…low-mineral water was responsible for an increased elimination of minerals from the body.”

What is Reverse Osmosis?
Reverse Osmosis, commonly referred to as RO, is a process that is used to remove a large majority of contaminants from water by pushing the water under pressure through a semi-permeable membrane. A semi-permeable membrane is a membrane that will allow some atoms or molecules to pass but not others. That is, it allows the passage of water molecules but not the majority of dissolved salts, organics, bacteria and pyrogens through. A simple example is a screen door – it allows air molecules to pass through but not flies, insects or anything larger than the holes in the screen door.
Mainly used for industrial, technical and laboratory purposes, RO became more extensively applied in drinking water treatment in the 1960’s. RO systems can excel at removing water impurities, but not many are aware that they also remove the beneficial minerals from water. In fact, the process removes 92-99% of beneficial calcium and magnesium, which are both essential elements to our bodies.
Since the early 1960’s, epidemiological studies in many countries all over the world have reported that water low in calcium and magnesium is associated with increased morbidity and mortality from cardiovascular disease.
Is it safe for me to drink bottled water?
Most bottled water is made from a plastic called Bisphenol-A (BPA) that is damaging to your health due to its toxic chemicals that leaches into the water. As of 2014, France will ban BPA in ALL food packaging.
Not many people are aware of the following but keeping bottled water in the car can also be harmful to your health! The heat in the car and the plastic of the bottle can leach out chemicals that could lead to breast cancer and other types of cancer.
Is drinking tap water safe?
The composition of water varies widely with local geological conditions. Standard tap water will have undergone a process of chemical treatment, chemical filtration and chemical disinfection before reaching our homes. The essential minerals collected when rain water flows down the mountains will have been completely destroyed by this process. Combined with the water flowing through pipes and collecting heavy metals, such as lead and cadmium, the resulting glass of tap water from our homes is full of contaminants and harmful to us in the long run, especially affecting those who live in third world countries.
Is Re-activated Water beneficial for me?
In short, yes it is. Through the activation process, the water that is delivered through the tap is fundamentally restored to its natural state; the way it was always intended to be – not with all the nasty extras that make their way in along the way.
The neutralizing of harmful chemicals and toxins from your water can help to build your immunity and reduce the risk of serious health conditions. Our Saiseiko Ceramic Balls (SCB) produce vast amounts of Far Infrared Rays (FIR) which have been proven to improve circulation, helping to energize the body and reduce problems associated with poor circulation.
What is Re-activated Water?
Standard tap water will have undergone a process of chemical treatment, chemical filtration and chemical disinfection before reaching our homes. The essential minerals collected when rain water flows down the mountains will have been completely destroyed by this process, leaving us with contaminated drinking water.
The process of re-activated water mimics how water should be just as nature intended by restoring and rejuvenating it to its natural state. Our patented Saiseiko Ball contains water-activation Super Energy (SE) Saiseiko Ceramic Balls (SCB) which are made from all natural minerals.
Combined with our patented Triple Spiral Chamber water pipe, AVS (Aqua Vortex System), water molecules passing through this special triple vortex chamber becomes smaller and more active which changes the surface tension of the water to make it more hydrating. The vortex then pushes lighter substances like bacteria outward.
This breakdown allows the separation of the water elements, and the ridding of the impurities that normally harbor the build up of lime-scale, red rust, and corrosion of the water pipes. What this means for you and your family is far fresher, cleaner, and safer water, regardless of whether you live in a soft or hard water area.
