Mostly in India, you’ll notice that in temples and houses, people keep a copper kalasha or pitcher to store amrita or the holy water. This water is then given to the worshippers to drink and sprinkle over their heads. This Amrita water is said to have spiritual healing properties, and thus, viewed as a symbol of holiness and immortality. Well, if you look at it scientifically too, water stored in a copper vessel is equivalent to holy water or amrita. Here are some of the mind-blowing healing benefits of drinking water from a copper water bottle or storing water in a copper vessel.

Store water in a copper vessel for 12 to 16 hours, and drink it right after you wake up in the morning. As devised by Ayurvedic sciences; this practice helps in regulating the bowel movement and overall digestive system, keeping you lighted and revitalized all day. This copper water, taken in a daily morning routine, also acts as a therapeutic and anti-viral medicine in itself. You can also boil the water in a copper vessel and drink it with lemon and honey. This also aids in the absorption of fiber and loss of excess fat.
Heals the Psychological & Emotional Balance of the body
A human body is composed of an entire stream of emotions and sensations; which affect the overall functioning of the body. These days, long working hours and closed office spaces lead to an imbalance in the elemental structure of the body. Tension, stress, tightness, cramps, and restlessness, are some of the typical after-effects of today’s lifestyle. While we can’t modify the lifestyle entirely; we can surely add a habit that can help us restore the delicate balance creating an alignment of mind and body.
Copper comprises of this neutralizing property, which can balance the emotional pain body by bringing harmony to its three elements, i.e. Vata, pitta and kapha. So, from now on, try switching from that plastic bottle that you carry to the office, to a copper water bottle, and observe its effect!
Heals the Energy Centres and Grounds Energy
As time passes by, a human body gets accumulated with some toxic substances and layers, which clog the chakras or the energetic centres of the body. This disrupts the proper flow of energy throughout the body. Disruptions in the energy flow is a leading cause of not just obsessive thoughts, but also the physical diseases. Major psychotherapists and bodywork healers, therefore, refer to copper water as an essential healing medicine and routine.
Plus, with its high conductivity, copper charges the energy centres for loosening the energy blockages if any.
Prevents symptoms and heals the after-effects of water-borne diseases
Water when kept in copper utensils or drunk from a copper water bottle, receives only a small number of soluble copper ions. Furthermore, these ions with their anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties, help cleanse the water of over 95% of the impurities. Containing antioxidants, copper significantly reduces the after-effects of many water-borne diseases including malaria, diarrhea, dysentery and jaundice.
Heals Infections & Wounds Faster
Around 2500 BC, when wars were going on, ancient Egyptians carried copper vessels with them to sterilize and heal the wounds of soldiers with copper water. In the 18th century, Swedish doctors used copper utensils to store water and cure their patients. Even Ayurveda recommends that all medications be provided along with copper water. In 2012, the Journal of Health, Population & Nutrition also stated that copper holds the ability to kill off harmful microbes from the water making it fit for consumption in case the body is under the grip of infections or injuries.
Today, many hospitals use copper water in ICUs and surgical wards to prevent infections in the body of patients. It is also used to boost the production of platelets in dengue patients.
