CON­SUMER INFOR­MA­TION Shinji Makino (1942 — 2021)

Prof. Shinji Makino

Founder of IBE© and developer of the PI®-Technology

  • Shin­ji Maki­no was born 1942 in the Aichi (Japan) pre­fec­ture.
  • He stud­ied at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Tohoku and Nagoya.
  • 1975 he found­ed the IBE© com­pa­ny: Devel­ope­ment and appli­ca­tion of the PI®-Water sys­tem in health and fit­ness sec­tor, biotech­nol­o­gy, agri­cul­ture and fish­ing indus­try.
  • Since 1995 he was the chair of the Asso­ci­a­tion for Research and Prop­a­ga­tion of Bio Ener­gy Sys­tems.
    At that time he pub­lished his two books: “PI-WATER : THE WATER OF LIFE” and “THE MIR­A­CLE OF PI-WATER — The rev­o­lu­tion­ary tech­nol­o­gy of water that will save our plan­et and its peo­ple”.

The name PI®

Sumerer Keilschrift Zeichen PI
A sym­bol for PI® already appeared over 5000 years ago among the Sume­ri­ans, who are the most ancient his­tor­i­cal civil­i­sa­tion known of to date. In the mid­dle of the 4th Cen­tu­ry BC, they wan­dered from the east or south­east to south­ern Mesopotamia. In their cuneiform (wedge-shaped) writ­ing, a sym­bol pro­nounced ‘pi’, meant vital ener­gy.

The discovery

Japan­ese sci­en­tists Prof. Shoi Yamashita and his for­mer assis­tent Dr. Shin­ji Maki­no did an ini­tial research of plant cell- and water-phys­i­ol­o­gy.

In 1964 they dis­cov­ered that the “liv­ing water” in plants is con­sid­er­ably dif­fer­ent from com­mon drink­ing and spring water in respect to its bio­log­i­cal and phys­i­cal prop­er­ties and it is very sim­i­lar to endoge­nous cell water.

As the inter­na­tion­al research gained more and more insight into the func­tion­al cor­re­la­tions and impor­tance of water in health and vigour, it was pos­si­ble to for­mu­late the much accu­rate cri­te­ria for healthy water.

Due the increas­ing con­t­a­m­i­na­tion of the nat­ur­al water cir­cle Prof. Shoi Yamashita and Dr. Shin­ji Maki­no pushed their research a step fur­ther. Their goal was to process a reg­u­lar tap water the way it becomes a liv­ing and cell-con­form water again — a PI®-Water of the same qual­i­ty as pro­duced by nature itself.

Holis­tic obser­va­tion with empa­thy towards nature was always dis­tinc­tive for Japan­ese cul­ture. This fact was very impor­tant for the of PI®-Water tech­nol­o­gy devel­op­ment.

After years of exper­i­ments, tests and improve­ments they devel­oped a process using select­ed nat­ur­al mate­ri­als. The PI®-Water Tech­nol­o­gy repli­cates the opti­mal purifi­ca­tion and ener­gi­sa­tion of water which cor­re­sponds in minia­ture to the orig­i­nal process in the untouched nature.

Prof. Shoi YAMASHITA called the new­ly dis­cov­ered liv­ing water “PI®-Water”; in 1985 this name was pro­tect­ed
world­wide by a trade­mark.
