Q. Is Ocean Plasma free of bacteria?
A. Ocean Plasma products (Isotonic or Hypertonic, i.e. diluted or pure) are completely free of any aerobic or anaerobic bacteria or pathogens. We have batch test results by an independent Laboratory that attest to this fact. This is available upon request.
Q. What is the shelf life of your products?
A. Good question!
Ocean Plasma® in 120ml and 1 L bottles has a shelf life of no less than five (5) years. It is suggested, nonetheless, to keep purchased Ocean products in a refrigerator. When opened, it is recommended to keep this product cool and to consume it within 3 months.
Q. ...if we order by the case to save money, can we use the products for several months or years?
A. Yes, that is entirely feasible. There is an unconditional guarantee on all products.
Q. Is the Ocean Plasma® only taken orally or can it be taken in other ways?
A. First, Ocean Plasma® is bottled in its pure and undiluted concentration.
This is called a 'hypertonic solution' (undiluted) and is usually taken orally. This solution carries a contra-indication note: Use Ocean Plasma diluted with pure spring water 7 to 3 in cases of high blood pressure, kidney disorders or when on a salt-restricted diet. It is meant for short-term use. Nevertheless, a salt-restricted diet does not necessarily mean that Ocean Plasma is contra-indicated, after all, it contains much more than just "salt" in the form of NaCl (Sodium Chloride) - it contains MANY salts, and in a totally assimilable form.
Regarding undiluted seawater, you must keep in mind that the laws of osmosis, diffusion and filtration are all at work here. In all cases, the osmotic forces attract water towards areas of stronger concentration and particles (nutrients etc.) towards the areas of lesser concentration. Therefore, a stronger solution is not necessarily a better one because it encourages a flow of water FROM the cells to the extra-cellular environment.
Therefore, if Ocean Plasma is taken for reasons of nutritional deficiencies, then one should favor an isotonic solution. But if the reason why Ocean Plasma is taken is one of detoxification, then a hypertonic (pure) solution is the better one.
Ocean Plasma can be taken orally, be sprayed into the nostrils (for absorption by the lungs) can be applied to the skin for rapid uptake via the capillaries or can be insufflated rectally, like an enema. Your health practitioner is best qualified to advise you which method is best for you and your situation.
Q. Where can I learn more about the historical use of seawater, are there any case histories and who are the true seawater pioneers?
There is one excellent bilingual (French and English) site on the Internet that discloses a wealth of information about seawater, the illustrious seawater pioneers, their treatment protocols, many case histories, a bibliography and literally dozens and dozens of highly interesting pages. Look it up here: http://oceanplasma.org
Q. Most bottled water offers a detailed chemical analytical report; is one available for your products?
A. Pure ocean water is labeled as 3.5% "saline" but, in the case of ocean water, that is not salt - it is SALTS - plural. "Saline" solution in hospital IV drips are sodium chloride dissolved in water but seawater contains many salts, including magnesium, potassium, calcium etc. As a matter of fact, it contains all the 92 elements in the Periodic Table. The composition of seawater is just about the same worldwide (see World Ocean Salinity picture in the web page shown below) and it has been analyzed to the best ability of science, many times over the past 150 years or so. A detailed chemical composition of seawater is shown here: http://oceanplasma.org/documents/chemistry.html. There you will find a table entitled: "Detailed composition of seawater at 3.5% salinity". It would literally cost tens on thousands of dollars to come up with an identical analysis and it would just be repeating what has been done many times before. Ocean Plasma Inc. does a microbial analysis of the finished product to document a total lack of bacteria and pathogens in each production batch.
Q. Is it true that Ocean Water is a very effective means to remove the effects of exposure to radiation?
A. Yes - we have much empirical information and we are actively researching this topic to provide more comprehensive answers ...
If you have been exposed to any form of radiation, either for medical diagnostic purposes (fluoroscopy/mammography/other medical x-ray exams, in the course of radiotherapy treatment, or if you are otherwise concerned by excessive radiation exposure, overload or poisoning (such as living near a nuclear reactor facility, working with diagnostic radiological equipment/in the nuclear processing industries/uranium mining/uranium or plutonium processing), or if you have been exposed to radioactive particles or higher ionizing radiation doses stemming from other sources such as depleted uranium (DU), testing of atomic weapons, frequent flights in higher altitudes, a nuclear disaster (e.g. radiation fallout from the Japan nuclear power plants) etc. - here in this FAQ are a number of tips and suggested remedies how to naturally help your body excrete damaging radioactive elements (e.g. strontium and radioactive iodine) or to detoxify their noxious by-products such as free radicals as well as to deal with radiation burns.
Q. Is it true that Ocean Plasma (Seawater) is a Safe Blood Plasma Substitute?
A. Yes - we have a ton of information regarding this topic in our oceanplasma.org website - and that very information served as a stimulus for Dianne Thompson to write her article in Nexus Magazine.
Diluted (isotonic) seawater contains almost the same concentration of minerals and trace elements as blood plasma, and its sodium content matches that of blood. It has been used successfully in animal tests as a blood transfusion substitute, but human trials are long overdue.
You would be well advised to read Dianne Thompson's article carefully and then read it again - it might save your life one day! If you have any comments or wish to contribute some thoughts or observations, kindly do so by contacting us
