Intro to Cancer and Disease
by Cathleen LoGrasso [Alkaline Water Plus]
If you already have cancer or another disease you should know that even if you "cure" it, it's likely to return if you don't change what got you into the situation in the first place. Alkaline ionized water is not a cure, it's a way for you to change what you're doing so your cells can be healthier.
This website, Alkaline Water Plus, contains about a hundred pages of very readable information about alkaline ionized water and its benefits. On top of the many years of background and research that I have or have done, I've collected resources and quotes from all over the internet and continually update this information. In other words, a lot has gone into the production of this site, and I hope that you take the time to share in my knowledge.The subject of alkaline ionized water should be known to everyone, especially if they have or want to prevent cancer and disease, and there is no more comprehensive website on the topic than this one. I hope you enjoy it.
Diseases are Preventable!
By drinking alkaline, ionized water, you can help counteract the acids in the foods and drinks you consume. By having more balancing pH buffers [and antioxidants] within your body, you can then increase your chances for maintaining optimal health.
Every day, hundreds of thousands of people are drinking alkaline ionized water and are changing their futures! They're theoretically slowing down the aging process, promoting healthy weight loss, detoxifying their bodies, boosting immunity against disease and increasing the body's ability to absorb nutrients, vitamins and minerals. Who knows how many diseases are being prevented? I actually will never know the answer to that question, but I do know the amount of energy and healthiness that I feel every day [without fail] is telling me something! Since I've been drinking ionized water, I am factually healthier. I am healthier now, at 60, than I was at 40!
The Importance of WATER
Our bodies are 2/3 water. So the kind and quality of water you drink deserves to have a fuss made over it. A bed-salesman once told me that since people spend 1/3 of each day sleeping, the kind of bed they have deserves extra attention. He was right. I bought a better bed than I planned for originally, and never regretted that decision.
Back in 1993, when I bought my first water ionizer, I watched a presentation all about the importance of water in the body, and decided then that water deserves to have more importance placed on it. I have rejoyced over that decision many hundreds [or even thousands] of times since then.
Dehydration is a factor in many major health problems. Common effects of dehydration can include: low energy, migraines, type II diabetes, hypertension, weight gain, low back pain and colon problems. I'll bet the last thing 99% of the population thinks when they get a headache, back pain or heartburn is that they should go drink water. We are often trained to not like water, take it for granted or completely disregard it. Positively charged tap water is not very hydrating, and I believe people intuitively know that. Ionized water is clearly different. This powerful alkalizing, anti-oxidant water provides superior hydration to your cells. Alkaline ionized water filters [water ionizers] reduce the size of the water molecule clusters, resulting in significantly better hydration per glass, which means a lot more oxygen can reach and actually be used by your cells.
Ionized Water and Disease
The benefits of reducing your body's acidity has long been recognized in the medical profession even in the United States. Researchers believe that disease is caused by excess acidity in our cells which weakens all body systems. Caused by our high stress lifestyles, diets, and pollutants, body-acidification affects virtually everyone. Excess body acidity forces the body to rob minerals [calcium and magnesium] from the body's reserves in the bones and joints. Read More: Aging and Degenerative Disease, by Sang Wang
Ionized Water and Alkaline Reserves
A healthy body has sufficient alkaline reserves to balance itself. Children have an abundance of alkaline reserves, but those reserves become depleted over time, in particular if your diet isn't rich enough in alkaline minerals. If you don't do something to reverse the body's tendancy toward acidification, then aging is potentially more rapid and cripling. Once the body's reserves are depleted the body is vulnerable to bone density loss, heartburn, indigestion ...innumerable conditions.
Ionized Water and Anti-Oxidants
Over and above the pH [alkalizing] benefits of alkaline ionized water, a water ionizer produces powerful antioxidants, which supplies huge amounts of extra needed electrons to your body.
Why are antioxidants so important? Positively charged molecules called "free radicals" damage healthy cells, causing the process of oxidation. It's what makes cut apples turn brown and iron rust. Researchers believe free radical damage plays a major role in heart disease, premature aging, cancer, Alzheimer's disease, rheumatoid arthritis and many more. Antioxidants stop oxidation. There is clear evidence that antioxidants help to counter-act the onset of degenerative diseases.
