At the age of 49 he gave up his job to follow his calling and to dedicate himself to his experiments.
The Grander Living Water system, says it energises H2O, making it permanently resonate with the cosmos.
Drinking water treated by the system, it says, will improve your circulation and blood pressure, detoxify your body and reduce allergies.
None of the scientific studies done on the Grander Living Water have revealed any evidence to support their claims.

Although identified by Dr. Williams as Beckmann's scissors, this item bears a closer resemblance to Panza's turbinotomy scissors, advertised in a 1906 catalogue.
On display at Hotel Dieu Hospital circa 1983-1993; the item was mounted on an acidic board with copper-covered wires to secure it.
