One of the most commonly asked questions I’ve received over the past eight years of selling Water Ionizers is what has Ionized Water done for me. I’ve been drinking Ionized Water since 1997 and the effects on my body have been dramatic.
I was already drinking a gallon of water everyday and did not have a poor diet (I was a vegetarian) so I did not suffer the detoxification effects of Ionized Water, which are extremely powerful, but won’t be noticed by those who are not toxic. I drank it at the highest (strongest) level and I drank at least a gallon everyday. At present, I drink nearly two gallons everyday and, honestly, have never felt better in my life.
Since I was not ill at the time and had no chronic disease, I cannot claim that Ionized Water cured me of anything. Ionized Water is best used as a preventative health measure, a tool that can be utilized to keep you in the best health possible.
Some of the things I have noticed over the last eight years of drinking Ionized Water is an overall increase in stamina and recovery times after exercising. I have noticed this especially during and after running. I run 2-6 miles everyday as I have for years. My stamina has increased 25-30% and my recovery time has decreased a proportional amount. I never get sore joints; in particular my knees have not given me any trouble since I started drinking Ionized Water. I surmise from this that the accumulated acid waste has been washed from my joints for the most part. I am also far more limber than I was before, thus I find it much easier to stretch than I ever have before.
Colds and the flu have completely disappeared from my life since I began drinking Ionized Water. If I do feel a little something coming on, such as a sore throat, I find that drinking a few extra glasses of Ionized Water helps put it at bay quickly. It is my contention that if people were to simply drink enough water and keep their bodies properly hydrated, 60%-80% of the chronic disease in our society would disappear.
Since my brain and cranial fluids are always sufficiently hydrated, I think much clearer now. This is crucial because the brain uses 80% of every sip of water you take! Ionized Water provides the body with lots of oxygen, much of which will be used by the brain to function properly. Thus, the clarity of my thought processes have definitely improved.
- The first thing that Ionized Water does to the body when a person begins drinking it is flush out the digestive track. People often comment how often they have to go to the bathroom when they first start drinking Ionized Water. The smaller water molecule cluster size cleanses the lining of the digestive track and hydrates the body tissue better than any other water. As it does so, it forces out toxins and this can lead to diarrhea, rashes and other detoxification symptoms. The more toxins that are accumulated in the body, the more profound the effects of Ionized Water. Water ionizers have several levels of strength so one can begin drinking at a weak level and then increase as they get use to it.
- I have reduced acid levels in the body and balanced my overall body pH, which is not measured through the blood, but through the urine or saliva. But this did not happen overnight. I did not get into the shape I was in, which was not at all bad, but I was not about to correct it in every way overnight. Years of accumulated acid waste in the joints and throughout the body takes years to completely undue. And a large part will depend on your diet as to how quickly you will rid the body of acid waste.
- I have increased my blood oxygen level and my energy level at the same time. Oxygen is a nutrient that can saturate the blood, but cannot be stored. Thus it is crucial that we constantly provide our bodies with sufficient oxygen. Oxygen carries nutrients around the body, provides us with energy and kills bacteria, viruses, even cancer cells. 100 million years ago the atmosphere of the Earth contained 30% more oxygen than it does today. We evolved in a higher oxygen environment than we find ourselves today, partly due to pollution, partly due to natural changes between the Earth and the Sun. Ionized Water is a great source of oxygen. The oxygen that is derived from Ionized Water arrives in the form of a very potent antioxidant, which has an extra electron. The oxygen from Ionized Water comes from the hydroxyl ions that are produced when the water is run over positive and negative electrodes and there is an exchange of ions. This hydroxyl ion is an oxygen molecule that carries an extra electron which is donated to a free radical (an oxygen molecule that has only one electron). What remains are two stabilized oxygen molecule; a higher blood oxygen level is the result.
- Ionized Water has bathed my body in the negatively charged liquid, which promotes rejuvenation at a cellular level. All RAW fruits and vegetables have a negative charge or ORP (oxidation reduction potential). Anything that is oxidizing, such as metal has a positive charge. Our bodies are constantly being attacked by oxidation; the older we are, the higher the charge (ORP) is. When we drink negatively charged substances such as Ionized Water, this oxidation is retarded and our body’s cells are allowed to rejuvenate. This is known as Reverse Aging because it allows the body to rejuvenate at a cellular level. We do not become young in physical years. If we are 40 years old, we do not become 20, but we have the body of a 20-year-old person at a cellular level. This means that the cells that make up our body are as active, productive, communicative and functional as those of a 20 year old person. However, achieving this would not be possible if you only drank Ionized Water; in conjunction with that did not move toward a more Raw Foods, away from cooked and processed foods and put Spirulina and Chlorella at the center of your diet. The Whole Food Raw Diet is the only way to achieve true health, Great Health!
- I know that overall my body is much better hydrated than it ever has been since Ionized Water is up to six times more hydrating than conventional water. I am much more sensitive to being dehydrated than I use to be. For example, I become aware that my body needs water after only an hour or so of not drinking any. Simply by keeping my body constantly hydrated, I am accomplishing many things I wish to regarding my health. By staying hydrated we help stave off disease better than anything else we do. My blood is never too thin or too thick because of lack of water. My organs function as optimally as can be expected because they are not starved for water. I do not retain salt, nor do I have thin blood and high blood pressure because I drink enough water, especially Ionized Water.
The effects of Ionized Water on the human body are profound, yet subtle. Ionizing Water does not change the taste of the water rather the “feel” of it. By that, I mean that ionizing water makes it smoother by changing the size and shape of the water molecule clusters. Conventional water molecules group together in clusters of 10-12 molecules. Ionizing water breaks the molecule clusters in half so they form a group of 5-6 water molecules, thus they are smaller in size and more penetrating.
What YOU can expect from drinking Ionized Water
Consuming Ionized Water can and will benefit everyone. You will definitely get all the effects discussed above: a negatively charged substance, a free radical scavenger, more oxygen in the body, a balanced body pH, better hydration and detoxification. If you drink Ionized Water the way I drink it, strong and in abundance, you will see the same benefits I do. However, remember that your body is different from mine and everyone else’s, thus the effect of Ionized Water on your body will be different than it was on mine. It will depend on your historical diet and your current diet, how much water your currently drink, how much you exercise, how stressful your life is and how much medicine you both historically and currently take.
There is not a lot of hard scientific evidence concerning Ionized Water for simple reasons. Scientific evidence, real scientific evidence, is expensive and difficult to recoup costs. The Japanese have done many studies on Ionized Water but they are not willing to release them plus the translation would be costly. However, ionization itself is not a great mystery and a great deal is known about what happens when water is ionized. Fundamentally, ionization causes a transfer of electrons between molecules, which is on the surface quite a simple process, however is very complicated upon deeper investigation. The articles below shed light on the ionization process and what makes water so valuable to the human body.
