Tennis star Novak Djokovic is in hot water.
During the quarantine, Djokovic hosted an Instagram Live series called "The Self Mastery Project", in which several guests came to talk about changing their lives for the better. Many of the guests offer tips on things like visualization and other self-help techniques. But Djokovic has had some guests who are a little out of the ordinary realm of well-being.
This week, Djokovic spoke with Chervin Jafarieh, who founded a company called CYMBIOTIKA. The company sells herbal supplements that should help achieve "homocysteine balance" and "improve symptoms of depression," according to its website.
In the program, Djokovic raised the theory that people's energy can change the state of the world around them and suggested that humans can change the chemical composition of food and water with their thoughts and emotions.
Undaunted, ATP # 1 Novak Djokovic continues to give his great platform a truly pseudo-scientific chatter.
It's not as potentially dangerous as being anti-vaccine, but NO, you can't change the molecular structure of water with your emotions, ffs.pic.twitter.com/BHzjOLe4r9Advertisement

"It is the connection you are talking about, the innate and really present connection and aware of the moment and aware of the fact that you are drinking water," said Djokovic.
"I saw people and I know some people who, through this energy transformation, the power of prayer, the power of gratitude, are able to transform the most toxic food or the most polluted water into the most healing water. Because the water reacts and scientists have proved that , these molecules in the water react to our emotions, to what is being said. ”
Jafarieh agreed with Djokovic and even cited a study that human emotions can change the molecular state of water.
"They say that if you had specific thoughts, specific emotions in the water, if they were happy thoughts, if they were good thoughts, they created a molecular structure that had a geoprism based on sacred geometry, which means that there was symmetry and balance, Jafarieh said . "At the opposite extreme, when you give pain, fear, frustration, anger to the water, that water breaks."
O study Jafarieh is quoting was done by Masuro Emoto. His work was never able to be replicated in any laboratory and he refused to reproduce his results to the public.
The tennis star has also recently been criticized for saying that if an anti-coronavirus vaccination is mandatory for players to return to tennis, they will not do it.
