1. Powerful Antioxidant – Reverses the aging process.
Alkaline Ionized Water has an abundance of electrons and a negative charge called Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP). Electrons are free radical scavengers and a negative ORP reduces the oxidation of the body, which slows down the aging process. ORP is the most important term we can learn regarding health because everything we put in the body either increases or decreases oxidation in the body. Therefore, everything we consume either reverses or accelerates the aging process.
2. Balances Body pH
Alkaline Ionized Water has a pH of 9.5 – 10 which helps bring the pH of the body up to neutral (7.0) where it should be.
3. Superior Hydrator
Alkaline Ionized Water has very small water molecule clusters that are able to hydrate the body’s tissue and its cells much more effectively than water that has not been ionized.
4. Powerful Detoxifier
As the small water molecule clusters hydrate the tissue and fill them with water they push out all the things that don’t belong in the tissue, which are commonly referred to as toxins.
5. Enhances Mineral Absorption
Minerals that have been ionized have extra electrons that make them better able to be absorbed by the body.
6. Provides the body with oxygen
Once the hydroxyl ions (oxygen molecule with an extra electron) have donated their electrons to free radicals what is left over is a lot of dissolved oxygen that is available for the body to use. Oxygen is one of our most important nutrients.
7. Gives you lots of energy!
The extra oxygen that it provides to the body translates into more mental alertness and more energy.
8. Helps prevent disease
When we Hydrate, Alkalize and Detoxify with Alkaline Ionized Water our body it is in a much better position to heal itself.
I absolutely adore Ionized Water. I wrote the bible of Alkaline Ionized Water. I have since I consumed my first glass of it over 10 years ago. And because I am such a strong proponent of Ionized Water, I’m often asked what it has done for me personally since I began drinking it in 1995. Simply put, the effects on my body have been dramatic and profound, even though these positive changes occurred quite subtly. That is what everyone can expect from drinking Ionized Water: subtle yet profound changes in their health, all of them positive.
I was already drinking a gallon of conventional water (spring and tap water) every day when I began consuming Ionized Water. I also was a cooked-food vegetarian so I did not suffer the detoxification effects of Ionized Water, which are extremely powerful. Only those who are quite toxic will notice these strong effects. That’s not to say I didn’t detoxify because I did and it was a deep detoxification. I was a 95% cooked foodist at the time so I had a lot of cleansing to do. I did not exhibit the more brutal symptoms of detoxification that some do. However, we should all be cautious when we first begin drinking Ionized Water. Many people who believe they are healthy, including vegetarians and fitness gurus, suffer from the intense detoxification properties of Ionized Water, which are like none other known. We must respect the power of tiny water molecule clusters because of their penetrating and cleansing properties.
I did get a few rashes in the early days as toxins came out of my body, but they were minor and I effectively treated them with Acid Ionized Water, which is excellent for treating rashes. I started by drinking Ionized Water at the highest level (pH 9.5 – 9.9) and consumed at least a gallon of it every day. Now I drink 1.5 – 2.0 gallons of Ionized Water each day and I have never felt better in my life. You’ll never have true energy and vitality without properly hydrating your body throughout each day. The subject of water should be the first chapter of every medical text book.
Since I was not ill when I first started consuming Ionized Water, I cannot claim that Ionized Water cured me of anything, although it has helped many others with a plethora of health conditions. Many people have written to me over the years testifying to the innumerable ways that Ionized Water has improved their health (Appendix 7: Testimonials). I have not kept them all, but if I were to have included them in this book, they would have easily doubled its size.
My body pH is balanced around 7.0 where it ought to be. My muscles are more relaxed because much of the lactic acid waste has been washed from my muscle tissue. I am 53 and do not ache in any of my joints. I am undoubtedly more limber, oxygenated, detoxified and better hydrated than any other time in my life.
My body’s cells are bathed in the negative ORP of Ionized Water, which helps extinguish the oxidation of my body. Thus, I am retarding, if not reversing, the aging process at a cellular level.
I was in my late thirties when I started drinking Ionized Water and the many years of accumulated acid waste deposited throughout the human body takes months, even years to remove. It will take a lot of water and lot of time to fully accomplish the goal of complete pH balance and detoxification throughout my body. But I could not have so easily gotten as far as I have without the daily consumption of Ionized Water.
Colds and flus have completely disappeared from my life since I began drinking Ionized Water. If I do feel a cold or sore throat coming on, I find that drinking a few extra glasses of Ionized Water quickly puts it at bay by hydrating and alkalizing my body so it can better fight the invasion.
Ionized Water is best used as a preventative health measure, although its healing properties are to be greatly respected as well. Water alone is the body’s greatest ally for healing, better than anything a physician could possibly do for it. Ionized Water has many times the healing properties of conventional water. However, it is the body and only the body that is capable of healing itself of any disease. All we can do is provide it with the right ammunition so it can provide us with health. Ionized Water should definitely be in the arsenal we provide to the body for its defenses.
