One of the hottest and most controversial topics today is
It seems that quite a few people and
organizations are talking about it, and there is a lot of confusion
concerning it. Water quality is one of the main concerns, but taste has
a lot to do with it as well. A recent City of Winter Park Water Quality
Report mentioned the possible health risk ďfor people that have undergone organ
transplants, cancer patients on certain drugs, some elderly people, and
infants, and people with HIV Aids or other immune systems disorders from
drinking municipal water.Ē This warning comes from the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency and is effective for all municipal water
systems. Well, if this is the state of our public water systems,
what is a person to do?
Even with good health, I
donít want to challenge my immune system every time I go to the tap for
a drink of water. A recent research project using specially bred mice
that have a weakened immune system had some astonishing results. One
group of mice was given plain tap water resulting in an average life
span of 235 days. A second group given restructured alkaline
water had an average life span of 346 days. The restructured alkaline water
significantly increased the second groupís life span and strengthened
their immune system.
In a previous
article I talked about the importance of water to our body. This article
will deal with restructured alkaline water and its potential benefits to
a personís health. Restructured alkaline water may well be the best element or supplement
you can put in your body!
Did you know the Japanese
have researched this subject for over forty years and have found that
alkaline water can relieve
or reduce the three main causes for sickness, disease and pre-mature
aging? I will reveal
these causes later but first letís talk about pH.
It is difficult
to tell you about all the possible benefits of this water without
explaining pH. The pH (parts of hydrogen) of liquids or other mediums
depends on the amount of hydrogen molecules present in the medium being
measured. The pH is recorded with a number; the scale used is a
logarithmic scale from 1 to 14 with 7 being neutral. A number below 7 is
acid and above 7 is alkaline. A log scale means that every sequential
number change is a change often times the previous reading.
So a change
from a 6pH to a 5pH is 10 times more acid than a 6pH. A 4pH is 100 times
more acid that a 6pH, and so on. Everyone knows that water is H20,
meaning two hydrogen molecules and one oxygen molecule. What everyone
doesnít know is, that by changing the covalent or weak bonds within the
molecular structure of the water you can change the pH of that water.
The best and most cost efficient way to accomplish this is using electrolysis.
research I spoke of earlier list acidosis, chronic cellular dehydration
and free radicals as the leading causes of sickness, disease and
pre-mature aging. Sounds simple doesnít it? Well it can be if you do the
right things, after all the country of Japan is listed
on the World Health Organizationís health scale than the United States.
Letís take one condition at a time and briefly explain it.
health care provider, alternative or mainstream will agree, that most
all health problems, including
cancer, begin in an acid environment inside the body. Many lay people
already know this. What most people donít know is that if your pH
does drop below 5.8 you cannot absorb vitamins A, B, E, F and K. Nor
can you absorb valuable minerals like sulphur, potassium, calcium,
vanadium, chromium, iron or zinc, no matter how much of these minerals
you take. Think about it, you
might be sending huge amounts of money down your toilet, so to speak.
The majority of people we check have a urine pH below 5.8 and
donít realize they are wasting
their money on supplements.
Restructured alkaline water is
the fastest and most efficient way to alkalize your body. We are meant to be alkaline on the inside
of our bodies. If you have any doubts about this I suggest you read
Alkalize or Die
by Dr. Theodore A. Baroody, available in most health
I have seen
estimations as high as 90 percent of our population are dehydrated and
they donít even know it. Research has proven a body needs one-half its
weight in fluid ounces of water per day to remain properly hydrated.
Dehydration has been linked to many of our modern diseases, too numerous
to go into here. If you are in doubt of this you should read
Your Bodyís Many Cries For Water
by F. Batmanghelidj, M.D., his book will
help you understand the vital importance of water. All water does not
help hydrate the body efficiently. Take distilled water for example. This water is dead and
devoid of all minerals. It is
very acidic and will tend to dehydrate you. All
distilled water I have checked is about a 4.5pH, that means this water
is 1000 times more acid than
your blood, which is a 7.3pH.
Distilled water must be neutralized and where do you think your body gets the calcium to
accomplish this? Iíll leave that deduction up to you. Reverse Osmosis
water has many of the same problems. RO water averages around a 5pH,
100 times more acid than your
alkaline water is slightly higher pH than the blood, thereby relieving
the stress on the body to keep your blood pH balanced where it is
supposed to be. Restructured
alkaline water, made using electrolysis, has smaller clusters of
molecules that enable it to hydrate you faster than tap water. It
carries nutrients and oxygen to your cells more efficiently and removes
acidic cellular waste with greater effectiveness.
I donít have to
spend much time talking about the damage that free radicals can do.
Almost everyone is aware of the premature aging and destruction that
these renegade molecules
are doing in our body. They
cause our body to oxidize or
rust on the inside. You can
see some of the damage in the form of excess wrinkles on the outside.
How do we slow down or stop this damage? Antioxidants are the answer.
Every supplement company
markets them. Restructured alkaline water made with electrolysis
functions as an
The water is loaded with
additional negative electrons that can be used by your body to
neutralize free radicals. Imagine yourself going to your tap, filling up a glass of healthy, good
tasting water, that is also one of the best antioxidants you could put
in your body. Think about it, itís so simple, drinking water, hydrating
your body and building a stronger immune system all at the same time!
alkaline water made using electrolysis has been consumed by the Japanese
for over 40 years and has touched and changed every disease and
condition imaginable. I have been using this water for over 6 years and
have seen similar results when it is used persistently and consistently.
The water is smooth, delicious, hydrating, energizing, permeating, pH
balancing and a strong antioxidant. Does this sound like the water you
should be drinking? I wish you all good health...
