Drink pure water and avoid fluorides at all costs – here’s how and why.
Ever since the 1960s, Japanese scientists have been redefining what good water means. Today, if you ask any of an estimated 300,000 Japanese how they spell good water, they’ll tell you it’s Microwater because they use it in their homes every day. Microwater is a new technology for filtering and enhancing the quality of water by making the size of water molecules smaller. It’s already a $700 million a year industry in Japan and it is now being introduced to the U.S. under the “Ange” label with an impressive roster of health claims.
Here’s how it works. The Microwater unit, hooked up to a faucet, uses a carbon-activated filter to remove impurities from the water (including chlorine, fluoride, and trihalomethanines). Then it injects a small electrical charge into the water which separates the water into two kinds. Flowing out of one tube there is an acidic water (with positive ions) useful for topical, external uses; out of another tube comes alkaline water (with negative ions) perfect for drinking. The unit makes this separation at the rate of one gallon per minute.
The applications of the acidic portion of Microwater are numerous and quite surprising. According to the research and based on early reports from African and South American users, acidic Microwater acts as a “super-oxidant” to disinfect and sterilize surfaces, skin, wounds, even surgical instruments. It can kill bacteria and viruses; it can promote the healing of acne, eczema, wounds, sore throats, and blisters and it can improve skin quality. When used on foods, it can retard spoilage or act as a bacterial cleanser for meats; it can be used by dentists to sterilize the mouth during dental procedures. You can even use it as a mouthwash when you brush your teeth.
Regarding the alkaline Microwater, here the smaller size of the water molecules shows its advantage. According to Hidemistu Hayashi, M.D., one of Japan’s foremost Microwater researchers, alkaline Microwater can act as a powerful antioxidant in the body, destroying harmful free radicals, just as do vitamins A, C, and E, which are also antioxidants.
Although the reports are still, strictly speaking, anecdotal, Dr. Hayashi reports that he and his colleagues have seen improvements in diabetes, constipation, ulcers, blood pressure, allergies, circulation, migraines, obesity, osteoporosis, and menstrual irregularities after drinking Microwater every day for several months. The use of Microwater as a preventive medicine technology is reportedly expanding in Japanese clinics and hospitals.
Once Microwater gets absorbed by the body’s cells, says Dr. Hayashi, it helps to dissolve acidic wastes that have accumulated there over many years and reduces the chronic dehydration common in many people. In effect, thanks to the smaller molecular size, more water is absorbed by the body and more water actually penetrates all the cells and tissues. When the body has more water to work with (and, in this case, a more refined form of it), it is able to better deliver nutrients to all the cells, tissues, and organs.
The water tastes unusually smooth and soft, and due to its high concentration of negative ions (typical of pure mountain springs), it can be refreshing. “We are advancing the theory that the most effective and economical source for an antioxidant is ordinary tap water after it is filtered and treated with a Microwater unit,” says Dr. Hayashi. If Microwater’s claims are true, one key to rejuvenation may be as simple as drinking a glass of good water every day.
