Quackery Exposed: Koo Energy


Koo Energy is a health tech company located in Yio Chu Kang, Singapore. They attempt to treat physical and mental health in children and adults. They use organic cotton with sleep therapy, distilled water and infrared rays. It claims to treat anxiety, behavior, detoxification, response, sleep, speech, temperament and toileting. They believe the cause of mental and physical issues is the accumulation of heavy mets in the body, especially the head. 

They claim that their treatments promote cell regeneration. 

"The human body’s ability to replace worn out cells with shiny new ones is key to the long lifespans we’re so used to. There are a couple of things we keep all our lives, like the visual cortex, but almost everything else wears out and gets replaced, at least for part of our lives. And some things, like our hair and nails, just grow and grow and grow.

We’ve gathered together scientists’ estimates of how quickly different types of cells grow. Many of these ages have been established using a technique called bomb-pulse dating, which uses the traces of atomic radiation we each carry to determine how old cells are."

They offer autism and adhd seminars as well. 

There is very little information available about the company Koo Energy. 

Koo Energy's Belief About Autism

They believe that autism is an advanced and more complicated form of ADHD. They believe that toxic heavy metals are present at higher levels in the midline cerebral canal and gathered in uneven layers. They believe it all has to do with the amount of heavy metals in the canal and in what positions they are accumulated. 

With Autism, the additional layers of mercury interfere even more greatly with metaphysical and electrical energy communications trying to cross the canal. They say exposure to mercury and other heavy metals cause autism. 

They do not come out and say vaccines cause autism BUT all the details of the anti vaxxer rhetoric is there. 

Koo Energy believes in order to cure ADHD and Autism, they must:
  • provide glucose to the brain
  • flush out heavy metals and other toxins
  • heal brain tissue
  • calm the mind
  • support healthy neuron signal transmission
  • strengthen central nervous system

Types of Reactions They disclose. This means "it's working":

Mild:
  • constant fart
  • constipaton
  • cough
  • dark eye circle
  • ear discharge
  • eye tearing
  • mouth ulcer
  • running nose
  • stomach ache
  • weight gain/loss
Moderate:
  • acne of face or neck
  • bad breath
  • body odor
  • bruises of the back or limbs
  • chest tightness
  • eczema
  • mucus discharge
  • muscle pain
  • night sweat
  • pimples on back or chest
  • wounds on back or limbs
Intense:
  • blood discharge
  • diarrhea
  • fever
  • nose bleeds
  • red bumps
  • vomiting

Types of Treatment

Sleep therapy with organic cotton

Koo energy believes all mental and physical health issues can be healed through sleep. The extra energy with boost the self healing ability. They believe that batches of heavy metals in the head are discharged into the blood, rounds of detoxification symptoms with appear one after another in order to "purge out heavy metals from the body." They say some children take 6-12 months to fully detoxify. Some are longer.  They claim once heavy metals have been cleared from the "midline canal" with koo energy sleep therapy, learning is possible. 

They have the slogan "Health issues? Just sleep." Sleep therapy includes the assessment, koo energy healing mat and the consultation.  They don't sell the healing mat separately because the assessment gives you customer their opinion of their health and "discuss the healing journey ahead." The healing mat is made of organic cotton. 

They say the purpose of the intensive consultation is detoxification. This requires "your management." A team of consultants keep track of the clients progress. The consultations take several months to complete. 

What is Organic Cotton?

Organic cotton is cotton that is grown wihtout using synthetic chemicals as pesticides or as fertilizers. This method promotes biodiversity and biological cycles. In the United States, cotton grown at plantations that meet the requirement of the National Organic Programme (NOP), US Department of Agriculture (USDA) is considered organic. 

Organic Cotton has no genetic difference from inorganic cotton. The only difference is chemicals being used or not being used. That is it. There is no healing benefit. It's a good fiber for textiles. THAT IS IT. 

Koo Energy's proof is growing beans on a regular mat opposed to their healing mat. It is unknown the growing conditions for the beans and how well controlled the environment is. This has no scientific value. 

Far Infrared Ray

The far infrared ray is the same infrared radiation used in infrared saunas. Several studies they link on their website showing it is the same as sauna infrared. Koo energy calls it the ray of light. 

They claim it:
  • oscillates water molecules
  • produces gentle heat
  • increases skin temperature
  • expands micro capillaries
  • promotes blood circulation
  • improves metabolism
  • eliminates body waste, toxins and heavy metals
  • assimilate nutrients
  • activates cell function 
  • regenerates cells. 
What infrared radiation actually does:

Infrared heaters emit light experienced as radiant heat. It is absorbed by the surface of the skin. These saunas heat the body primarily by conduction and convection from the heated air and by radiation of the heated surfaces in the sauna room. Because of this, the infrared sauna isn't an actual sauna by Finnish sauna societies. This is because of the application of the infrared electromagnetic field spectrum to the human body.

According to the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNRP), the risks of Infrared therapy are:

  1. thermal injury, an injury can be present even if pain is not felt
  2. hyperpigmentation
  3. scaling
  4. telangiectasias (widened tiny blood vessels are visible on the skin)
  5. Reduced DNA repair efficiency
  6. Can promote skin cancer initiated by other triggers
  7. Thickening of the skin
  8. Retina damage
  9. Eye lens damage, leading to cataracts
  10. Hyperthermia (core body temperature is too high)

Water Healing

Water healing is the belief that drinking high energy water will promote healing. They assess the energy level with a dowsing rod. A clockwise rotation means a positive reading. A counterclockwise rotation means a negative reading. Each turn of the dowsing rod is an energy level. 

What is Dowsing?

Dowsing is where a person walks over land while holding two L shaped rods in their hands parallel to each other and when they walk over a patch of underground water, the rods magically cross. This technique was invented over 450 years ago. It was probably thought of as witchcraft. Another name for this practice is "water witching." 

In modern day and after the development of the of the scientific method, it is understood that the phenomenon is caused by the ideomotor effect. This is the same effect that makes the pointer on a Ouija board move without anyone touching it. This effect is when just the act of thinking of something causes muscles to move seemingly "on their own" or "reflexively" without consciously deciding to move. 

Energy Water Ball:

This is put in the distilled water to "increase energy." It produces infrared rays that cause resonance vibration. 

"The resonance is transmitted to clusters of water particles.This effect causes the gradual separation of individual molecules of H2O, thus producing de-clustered water, also known as koo energy Water.

​Due to the nano size, koo energy Water penetrates into each cell, providing hydration even to deep layers of skin. This facilitates detoxification of cells, thereby stimulating their regeneration and auto-regulation. This enhances skin renewal and strengthens its natural defence mechanism.

Drinking koo energy Water can instantly hydrate the body, relieving symptoms of dehydration that may include tiredness, headaches, and stiff joints."

The claimed benefits:
  • penetrates into cells due to nano sized cluster
  • facilitates detoxification of cells
  • stimulates cell regeneration and auto regulation
  • enhances skin renewal and strengthens its natural defense mechanism
  • provides hydration even to deep layers of skin
  • relieves symptoms of hydration including sore throat, tiredness, headaches and stiff joints

What is Distilled Water?

The composition of water varies widely with local geological conditions. Groundwater and surface water is never pure water. Water contains small amounts of gases, minerals and organic matter of natural origin. 

Distilled water is water almost or completely free of dissolved minerals as a result from distillation, deionization, membrane filtration, electrodialysis or other technology. 

Distilled water is not appropriate for consumption because:
  • demineralized water is highly aggressive and if untreated, its distribution through pipes and storage tanks would not be possible. The aggressive water attacks the water distribution piping and leaches metals and other materials from the pipes an associated plumbing materials. 
  • Distilled water does not taste good
  • Preliminary evidence showed that some substances in water could have beneficial effects on human health. 
The adverse effects of consuming distilled water are:
  • direct effects on the intestinal mucous membranes, metabolism and mineral homeostasis or other body functions
  • little or no intake of calcium and magnesium from low mineral water
  • low intake of other essential elements and microelements
  • loss of calcium, magnesium and other essential elements in prepared food. 
  • possible increased dietary intake of toxic metals. 

Energy level of each type of water: 

The energy measurement has no scientific basis as explained above. 

The energy of distilled water from a water distiller is +53. 

The energy of distilled water from water distiller with koo energy ball (sitting in the water for 5 minutes) is +93. 

Energy of distilled water from water distiller with koo energy ball (sitting in the water for 1 hour) is +205. 

Energy of bottled distilled water is +35.

Energy of bottled distilled water with koo energy ball for one hour is +108. 

Energy of tap water is -0.4

Energy of tap water with koo energy ball for 10 minutes is +5.1.

Energy of brand k ionized alkaline water is +13. 

Tried to make contact

When I tried to make contact to ask them some questions, this came up:

message that a consult was not available.
