According to Dr Robert O. Young, author of “The ph Miracle”,:
“The pH level (the acid-alkaline measurement) of our internal fluids affects every cell in our bodies. Extended acid imbalances of any kind are not well tolerated by the body. Indeed, the entire metabolic process depends on a balanced internal alkaline environment. A chronically over-acidic pH corrodes body tissue, slowly eating into the 60,000 miles of veins and arteries like acid eating into marble. If left unchecked, it will interrupt all cellular activities and functions, from the beating of your heart to the neural firing of your brain. In summary, over-acidification interferes with life itself leading to all sickness and disease!”
Most foods can be divided into alkaline and acidic. Meat, liquor, coffee, processed foods and preservatives are acidic, and much of today’s foods fall into this category. If we consume too much acidic food our bodies become acidic, which leads to many problems, including low natural resistance to sickness, low metabolism, constipation, tenseness, stress, fatigue and may more ailments. In addition, many middle-aged and older people suffer from physical disorders such as high blood pressure, diabetes, arthritis, kidney and liver disorders to name a few!
This is a direct result of accumulated harmful drinking and eating habits which gradually change the body condition to acidic! Many people have discovered that drinking plenty of ionised water daily can and does flush out the toxins stored in the body to promote a healthier lifestyle. This has led to the belief that you are not only what you eat, but also what you drink – especially since our bodies are made up of over 70% water!
Ten Good Reasons to drink Ionized Drinking Water:
- Ionised water hydrates up to 6 times more effectively than tap water.
- Ionised water is a powerful antioxidant and free radical scavenger.
- Ionisation raises the pH of tap water from around 6 to 9.5. Drinking ionised alkaline water is the most effective way of correcting an acidic pH, because the ionized water acts as a solvent on acidic waste stored in the body and dissolves it to be removed by the blood.
- Ionisation cuts the size of the water molecular cluster in half. This smaller cluster can penetrate the cellular membranes of the body easier, thus speeding new tissue building and waste removal.
- Ionisation splits the water molecule into H+ and OH- ions. By drinking the water with the alkaline, oxygen rich OH- ions, more oxygen is made available to enrich the blood which can increase one’s level of energy and promote quicker healing.
- The ionised OH- molecules have extra electrons that neutralize destructive free radicals circulating throughout the body and thus allow the natural healing process of the body to predominate and promote health.
- Ionised water improves nutrient uptake.
- Ionised water promotes bowel regularity.
- Ionised water acts as a detox by washing acidic waste from the body.
- Ionised water prevents the onset of chronic, lifestyle related disease by correcting latent tissue acidosis.
Ionised Water – superior to antioxidant diet:
Today we read much about correct dieting principles and paying attention to what we eat in order to stay healthy. This is a sensible practice, but it is surprising that many of us don’t realize that the bulk of what we eat is composed of water. Vegetables and fruits are 90% water; fish and meat are about 70% water as well. Even advocates of the importance of vitamin C in diet staples have to admit that its potency, namely, the redox potential of this important vitamin, rapidly diminishes with age and preparation for the dining table. Carbohydrate, the main constituent of vegetables and fruit, has a molecular weight of 180 whereas water has a much lower molecular weight of 18. Water, with its low molecular weight and high reduction potential, makes it a superior scavenging agent of active oxygen (a.k.a. reactive oxygen species, a dangerous oxidizing agent). But electrolysis inside the Ionised Water unit not only charges the reduced water with electrons, it also reduces the size of reduced water molecule clusters. NMR (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance) analysis reveals that tap water and well water consists of clusters of 15 to 13 H20 molecules. Electrolysis of water in the Ionised Water unit reduces these clusters to about half their normal size – 5 to 6 water molecules per cluster, which obviously vastly improves antioxidant and electrolytic properties.
Western medicine does not attempt to remove acid wastes from the physiological system; so today’s modern medicine is deficient in treating adult diseases. Even if medicines do cure the disease, if the acids are not removed from the body, the treatment’s effectiveness will only be temporary. Bad diets, including meat and potatoes, fried foods, refined bread, soft drink colas and sugars, build up acid salts in the body. Often these deposits, by having to be stored away from the blood flow, can remain in the body for decades. Stress, both mental and physical, can create acid deposits in the body. Mental stress can also make you feel depressed. Doctors in Japan, following more than forty years of research and testing, believe that daily drinking of alkaline water can lift depression.
Alkaline electrolytic water is also an excellent long term treatment for many chronic diseases. It has been shown to have a positive effect in cancer treatment. It is probably the best anti-aging substance as it is antioxidant and much more available to the body cells due to the low molecular structure, than vegetables, fruit, or herbs. It removes plaque, cholesterol, fat etc. from the arterial tubes, reducing high blood pressure, angina and heart attacks related to artherosclerosis.
Arthritis and Alkaline Water:
Uric acid is nearly insoluble in water, alcohol, and ether, but soluble in solutions of alkaline salts. In other words, it becomes soluble in alkaline water. Arthritis and gout are caused by uric acid deposited between the joints, non-dissolved due to the low alkalinity of an older person’s blood. Drinking acid free alkaline water will gradually elevate one’s blood pH and the gout will disappear naturally.
As we live with poor waste disposal systems for a long period of time, some parts of our body build up more acids than others, and they can clog up capillary vessels around those acidic areas. This causes some body organs to function in a sluggish manner. We feel tired and run down sometimes for no reason whatsoever and adult diseases such as high blood pressure, arthritis, diabetes, asthma, allergies, etc. start to set in.
WE SIMPLY ACCEPT THESE PHENOMENA AS “GETTING OLD.”
Kidney and Bladder Problems:
As the body consumes toxins, the kidneys become over burdened with acid wastes. Nephritis, uremia poisoning and bladder problems are all acid related conditions which can be treated by the consumption of alkaline water. Kidney stones begin as tiny specks and they gradually build into solid stones, composed of phosphates, urates and others. Drinking plenty of alkaline water prevents kidney stones from forming and even dissolves them after their formation. Japanese doctors have used alkaline water for years to treat the kidneys.
