What is Ionization?
...and why is it so important?
Every breath we take, every move we make...so goes the song.
Yet every move we make does depend on every breath we take and every drink (or meal) we take, because our movement is fueled by energy that we store in the body. Energy doesn't just 'drop' out of the air, food or water that we ingest. In its usual form it is not chemically available. It can't always be called upon to support every move we make because it is not always ready for chemical reaction.
For any chemical reaction to occur there needs to be two molecules involved, and each of these molecules must have something to 'trade', in the form of compatible atoms that are either positively or negatively charged. Positively charged molecules (and the atoms within them) will easily and naturally unite with negatively charged molecules of equivalent and compatible charge.
So what is an ion?
An ion is any atom that has a positive or a negative charge. A positively charged ion will seek a negatively charged one to unite with.
So why do we rave on so much about negative ions? Because the result of every move you make (a net spending of energy) is a positively charged body. The molecules in your body are left holding a positive charge. They are unavailable for future 'couplings' unless we get a new batch of attractive and giving negative ions in quickly.
As we hear so often these days, things aren't what they used to be. The air is different. Putting it very frankly and unscientifically, it's full of crud. Positively charged crud.
We have managed to take our beautiful planet from garden paradise to techno trash in less than a century, and we have done one helluva 'good' job. Where once clear air and spring or glacial water gave us all the negative ions we needed, today the same basics actually rob our bodies of energy.
In March 1968, 36 years ago, Le Monde reported that the presence of negative ions or ionization facilitates oxygen absorption, aids elimination of CO2 in the alveoli of the lungs, yet positive ions have precisely the opposite effect. Gases, dust, chemical fumes, all enter the body as positive ions, trapping the tiny negative ions in their large absorbent form, rendering your air technically 'dead'.
When we read the work of Dr Otto Warburg, Nobel Scientist, we begin to understand the absolute importance not only of oxygen, hydrogen and nitrogen, but the utter importance for our longevity of their entry into the body in negatively charged form. We also begin to see the extent of the effect of common-use substances. A plastic seat (I am sitting on one now!) will accelerate mental fatigue, as will plastic wall coverings. Objects covered in polyethylene produce fields of between 5 and 10,000 volts/meter. In a space enclosed by polyethylene the rate can skyrocket to 100,000 volts/meter. Certain synthetic clothes are strong enough to set up a field that repels all negative ions in your immediate vicinity! Go stand on a mountain; it won't help much if you're wearing your favorite synthetic ski jacket!
Without adequate negative ions, we are literally working ourselves to death and we don't even realize it. Yet the technology now exists to replace the body's load, to support the immune system, and to promote not just a long life, but a strong, vital life.
With ionization (ionized water), you are now able to derive huge quantities of negatively charged ions as Hydroxyl ions in a microclustered form that will flow between cell walls and react with acid wastes that are causing energy loss, lethargy and a predisposition to almost every major illness; all in water direct from your tap.
