What is ionized water?
A water ionizer separates water into alkaline and acid fractions using a process known as electrolysis. It does this by exploiting the electric charge of the calcium and magnesium ions present in nearly all sources of drinking water. When a source of water lacks mineral ions, such as distilled water, or has been filtered by reverse osmosis, electrolysis has no ionizing effect.
Acid / Alkaline Balance
Over acidity, which can become a dangerous condition that weakens all body systems, is very common today.
It gives rise to an internal environment conducive to disease, as opposed to a pH-balanced environment which allows normal body function necessary for the body to resist disease. A healthy body maintains adequate alkaline reserves to meet emergency demands. When excess acids (acidosis) must be neutralized, our alkaline reserves are depleted, leaving the body in a weakened condition.
Are there any cautions about drinking alkaline ionized water?
You should start slowly. Set the controls to the lowest alkaline level. Assuming the water resonates with you, increase the amount you drink and the level of ionization intensity. High levels of alkalinity – up to 9.5 – 10.0 — are best for drinking water; the highest levels can be used for cooking.
In a few individuals, the detoxification effects from drinking alkaline ionized water can cause headaches and diarrhea for a short time. This is a very positive sign, because the body wanna get rid of all the toxins and lose toxic waste material in an “explosive” fashion. It is no real diarrhea; don’t take any diarrhea medication to suppress this effect.
And for some older people, ionized water can tend, at first, to open the bowels. This is why a slow start is advised. Use the “Purified Water” setting for taking any medications that your doctor advises not to be taken with alkaline water if you have to.
Do not drink the acid water! Having said all of the above, be aware that millions of Japanese have been drinking alkaline ionized water daily over the last 30 years. The water ionizer has been approved as a Household Medical Instrument by the government of Japan. In addition, test results on safety by the Welfare Ministry in Japan reveal no harmful influences on the body.
How to test the pH level?
The results of urine testing indicate how well your body is assimilating minerals, especially calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium. These are called the “acid buffers” because they are used by the body to control the acid level. If acid levels are too high, the body will not be able to excrete acid. The Cancer risk is increasing! It must either store the acid in body tissues (auto-toxication) or buffer it – that is, borrow minerals from organs, bones, etc. in order to neutralize acidity.
You may also want to test the pH of your saliva. The results of saliva testing indicate the activity of digestive enzymes in your body, especially the activity of the liver and stomach. This reveals the flow of enzymes running through your body and shows their effect on all the body systems. Some people will have acidic pH readings from both urine and saliva. This is referred to as “double acid.” (most common in Cancer patients)
What is the effect of alkaline ionized water with cancer?
Cancer Cells cannot live in an alkaline, oxygenated environment…
“…the prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen in normal body cells by a fermentation of sugar. All normal body veils meet their energy needs by respiration of oxygen, whereas cancer cells meet their energy needs in great part be fermentation.
All normal body cells are thus obligate aerobes, whereas all cancer cells are partial anaerobes. From the standpoint of the physics and chemistry of life this difference between normal and cancer cells is so great that one can scarcely picture a greater difference. Oxygen gas, the donor of energy in plants and animals is dethroned in the cancer cells and replaced by an energy yielding reaction of the lowest living forms, namely, a fermentation of glucose.”
(Excerpts from The Primary Cause and Prevention of Cancer by Otto Warburg, German biochemist and two times Noble Prize inner.)
The Health Risks of Acidified Body:
1) The nutritionally poor diets and lifestyles result in acidified body found in most Americans;
2) Acidified body means low energy and lacking oxygen
3) Acidified body means accumulation of acidic waste and toxins;
4) Acidified body is prone to breeding of fungus, molds, bacteria and viruses;
5) Some of the long list of acidic diseases:
- Cancer, Diabetes,
- Heart attack, arthritis
- Astma, Allergy
- Acne, cold, flu,
- PMS, cramps, headache
- Impotence, hair loss, low energy
- Cancer forms and thrives in an acidic environment
What is the magic in a Water Ionizer?
The ‘magic’ is really a simple process called electrolysis, or ionization, something your body has to do every day to make energy available. It is backed up by the high-tech ability of micro-circuitry to maintain quality and regular output, plus the ability, through ionization, to remove harmful chemicals and retain beneficial minerals. This is why Sang Whang, author of “Reverse Aging” calls it REVERSE AGING WATER.
A custom designed motherboard controls all aspects of the process of ionization, including flow rate, water temperature, and a range of four separate pH output settings.
Some Common Diseases and their Relationship to Acidity
While the normal cells of the human body degenerate, and acidic wastes accumulate, cancer will make a genetic transformation and keep propagating itself in order to survive in such acidic surroundings. There have been two theories on the basic causes of cancer. One is the oxygen deficiency theory by a German biochemist, Dr. Warburg. The other is the theory of acidic cells, by a Japanese doctor, Dr. Airashi.
Dr. Warburg discovered that if oxygen is removed from a healthy cell, the cell will start to turn cancerous. Dr. Warburg won the Nobel prize by proving this theory through his many experiments. Dr. Airashi showed that cells that survive in acidic environments will eventually develop cancerous characteristics.
Even though cancer cells are eliminated entirely through an operation, they reoccur because the acidic surroundings still remain after the operation. So, to help prevent this, we should stop the development of acidosis by having a healthy diet, avoiding stress, living in a healthy environment and exercising.
The human body is very intelligent. As we become more and more acidic the body starts to set up defense mechanisms to keep the damaging acid from entering our vital organs. It is known that acid gets stored in fat cells. After all, if the acid does come into contact with an organ the acid has a tendency to burn holes in the tissue. This may cause the cells to mutate. The oxygen level drops in this acidic environment and calcium begins to be depleted.
So as a defense mechanism, your body may actually makes fat to protect you from your overly acidic self. Those fat cells and cellulite deposits may actually be packing up the acid and trying to keep it a safe distance from your organs. The fat may be saving your vital organs from damage. Many people have found that a return to a healthy inner biological terrain helps them to lose excess fat.
When acidic wastes accumulate in the pancreas, diabetes can develop due to lack of insulin in the body. Doctors say that symptoms of diabetes appear mainly in people above 40, with no symptoms of diabetes in their 20s. How do they differ from each other?
In general, the quantity of accumulated acidic wastes after the age of 40 is far more than those in their 20s, especially in the pancreas. Nevertheless, we may help avoid the onset of diabetes if we flush out the acidic waste in our bodies by drinking plenty of healthy water.
Hypertension is a common illness that occurs due to three reasons.
- Hypertension caused by clogged capillary vessels due to physical reasons.
- Narrowed blood vessels caused by acidic wastes.
- Thus, blood pressure has to be higher naturally in order to supply sufficient quantities of blood through the narrow vessels.
- Lack of oxygen due to chemical reasons, namely solidified acidic waste in the vessels.
Hypotension can occur as the heart muscles deteriorate due to a lack of calcium ions, caused by acidic waste. A patient with hypotension may regain his health by drinking healthy mineralized water. This is because calcium ions in alkaline water can help to restore the heart’s activities when caused by a lack of calcium ions.
Kidney Ailment and Kidney Stone
One of the major functions of alkaline water is to purify or help remove the wastes in the body. The accumulation of excessive wastes in the kidneys weakens the kidneys. When cells survive in an excessive acidic environment, swelling of the kidneys occurs. In order to remain healthy, cells should expel all the waste produced by them. But if the blood becomes more acidic then the waste will cling to the walls of cells, causing solidification of acidic fluoride in the kidneys and kidney stones.
Osteoporosis and Gout
Human bones function as a calcium bank for the body. A combination of calcium and phosphorus, bones stay healthy as long as there are adequate amounts of these two substances present. To neutralize excessive quantities of waste or acidity, the body starts to deprive the bones of calcium, which may be harmful to the body. Symptoms of calcium deficiency are not evident through X-ray examinations and are only visible when 30-40% of the calcium in the bone has already been depleted.
Gout happens when calcium accumulates in the capillary blood vessels of the hands and legs. Normally, gout occurs in toe joints, knee joints, and finger joints and drinking alkaline water is one of the best treatments.
Dr. Choi, a medical practitioner at the Seoul National Medical University, observed 15 patients (10 men and 5 women) who had suffered from constipation for over a year. Results showed that the symptoms of constipation were alleviated when alkaline water was consumed for a period of 1-2 weeks. Twelve of the fifteen patients recovered remarkably well after this period. This is true because by lubricating the wastes secreted on the walls of the large intestine, excretion become easier. Dr. Choi also observed that there was a remarkable improvement in how alert his patients were after drinking alkaline water.
Stress and Headache
When we suffer from stress, our body produces more acidic waste, leading to acidosis. Physical stress can be relieved by getting a good rest. Nowadays, however, most of us do not find the time to relieve mental stress. Continued long term stress will create harmful problems like headaches, mental disorder, bad temper and unbalanced hormone excretion, etc. There are two kinds of stress. One is physical stress caused by physical activities and the other is mental or emotional stress caused by mental/emotional fatigue.
To conclude it is reasonable to say that there are no specific diseases, only specific disease conditions. That is why Dr Young and others believe there is only one disease. And that one disease is acidosis.
Ionized water is a potent natural antioxidant. Antioxidants are compounds that have powerful anti-cancer, anti-aging and disease fighting properties. They work by neutralizing the harmful effects of free radicals, which not only cause disease but also cause us to age prematurely. Ionizer water contains Hydroxyl Ions, which are oxygen molecules that have an extra electron. Hydroxyl Ions seek out and donate their extra electron to free radicals, which are oxygen molecules that are each missing one electron. Ionized water, being liquid, is even more effective than other antioxidants because it is easily absorbed into the body.
People spend hundreds of dollars a month purchasing antioxidants because they are anti-aging and anti-cancer, which they accomplish through neutralizing free radicals.
Free Radical damage causes us to age and causes diseases. Since Ionized Water is a liquid antioxidant, it is easily absorbed into the body which makes it much more effective and powerful antioxidant. Once the Ionized Antioxidant in the form of Hydroxyl Ions (oxygen molecules with an extra electron) donates its extra electrons to free radicals (oxygen molecule that is missing one electron) you are left with lots of oxygen. Ionized Water gives you ENERGY by providing your body with lots of oxygen! This is one of the most incredible aspects of Ionized Water!
Ionized Water balances body pH because it is very alkaline. Our diet is often extremely acidic. Soft drinks, fast foods & processed foods deposit acid waste in our bodies that builds up over time and creates an ideal environment for diseases of all kinds to thrive. Look at any cancer patient for instance and their bodies are invariably acidic to some degree.
This is, of course, true even with children. Chronic soft drink consumers such as children put themselves in grave danger by allowing their bodies to build up acid waste. Many end up with serious diseases at a very young age. Maintaining an alkaline pH (6.9-7.2) helps us to maintain an environment in our bodies that is NOT conducive to disease.
It may take years depending on how acidic your body is, but Ionized Water, because of its alkaline properties, will flush acid waste from our bodies. Ionized Water is meant to work as a preventative measure, however, if you are ill with any disease it always helps to stay alkaline.
Ionized Water has a different molecular cluster size. It contains only five to six water molecules instead of the ten to thirteen that conventional water molecule clusters have. It has changed from an irregular shape that is 10-13 molecules to a hexagonal regular shape that is half the size. This smaller or “reduced” water is much more hydrating than conventional water. There are two consequences of this: First, Ionized Water is much more hydrating than conventional water. Second, it is extremely detoxifying.
