How to Use Your New Water Ionizer

Published by Alkaline Water Plus

Your Water Ionizer has Useful Water at Every Level!

Alkaline Water is for drinking [It does amazing things to improve the healthiness of your water]. Drinking Water Levels [usually 3 levels] is alkaline water. Depending on your power-settings and flow-rate you may be able to stretch the capability of your water ionizer to produce alkaline ionized water out to 30 or so levels of gradient increases in pH.

There are two other types of water that a water ionizer produces.

  1. Purified water is not ionized but filtered only. This is useful for taking medications or drinking at meal-times.
  2. Acidic water usually comes out of the bottom hose, but you can set your ionizer to the acid setting to have it come out of the top spout.

Alkaline Water  does amazing things to improve the healthiness of your water. It improves taste; filters chemicals & toxins from water far better than ordinary filters; splits large water clusters in half, making them smaller and more easily absorb-able by your body; hydrates your cells far better than any other water can do; boosts the pH of your drinking water to allow it to help your body actually reverse the age-accelerating, disease-generating effects of the acidic condition of your body.

With most people, many wastes sit in the cells for long periods or forever waiting to be eliminated. The longer acid wastes stay in the cells, the greater the chances of diseases or mutations (cancers). Research shows that diseases thrive in an acid environment. The modern fast-food diets we eat, sodas we drink, and stressful lifestyles we live only make that acid environment inside our bodies worse over time. To combat this, drinking alkaline water helps to buffer this acidity and neutralize our bodies, allowing our cells to be cleansed…leading to a longer, healthier life potential and more energy on a daily basis.

Alkaline ionized water helps to detoxify your body at a cellular level (gets toxins out). It  also transforms water’s ORP (oxygen reduction potential), and so it becomes an antioxidant. So instead of damaging your cells in the oxidation process, this water will help your cells fight off free-radicals. The quality of “negative ORP” of the water is variable from ionizer to ionizer. The best water ionizers will provide you with the highest concentration of antioxidants. Antioxidants are important in the prevention of age-related diseases and cancer.

Ionized water has been known to help the body achieve and maintain its optimum weight, by allowing all the fat-cell build-up of waste storage to finally be released. And so allowing you to lose your fat; help the arteries in the same way as the fat cells; and help the bowels and other organs to become cleansed and hydrated, which is the main reason they would become diseased in the first place. So you’re getting at the source of trouble, and eliminating it, before that trouble starts killing you.

Instructions for Drinking Ionized Water:

Start out at the lowest setting for alkalinity. Drink this for at least 3 days. Your body may go into what’s called a detoxification-phase (detox), because it has a lot of acidic wastes (toxic) which are now able to release from your cells. If you take it kind of slow at first, you’ll feel less discomfort due to this detoxification process. Some symptoms of detoxification are: headaches, pimples, aching in the lower back (kidney) area. Some people never feel these detox symptoms. So if you don’t feel any negative effects after 3 days, then move up to the next higher level of alkalinity. Or, if you had symptoms, but they’re now subsided, move up to the next level. There’s no need to rush though. Once you reach about the 3rd level, stop moving up. That’s probably the best level to continue drinking your alkaline ionized water. However, if you want to try a higher level, that’ fine. If you like the taste, and you don’t feel any negative effects from it after about 3 days, then it’s probably the right level for you.

How Much Water Should You Drink Per Day?

If you are starting out healthy, with no known health condition, you should drink at least 1 ounce of ionized water times half your body weight. That would mean, if you weighed 150 lbs, you’d drink 70 ounces per day of ionized water or more.

However, if you have a health concern or condition it is suggested that you drink a minimum of one gallon of ionized water per day. More is fine too. 

Purified Water is for Taking Medication

If you need to take prescription medicine, it is advised to drink only purified water for a 20-minute period just before and after taking your medication. This ensures that the pH level of the water will not interfere with the intended effects of the medication.

Acid Water is for Cleaning, Skin-Care and Beauty

The water that comes out of the bottom hose is acidic. If you save that water, you can use it to do many wonderful things for yourself.

  • Use at a pH of about 2.5 for its antiseptic value (put your ionizer on the strong acid water setting and use this water as an antiseptic, mouth-wash, or cleaner). You can put it in a spray-bottle for convenient use in the kitchen. With this water you can achieve a nice astringent value without using toxic chemicals, so it’s great for the environment and for the safety of your children.
  • Beauty-Water (put your ionizer on the 3rd level of alkalinity and save the water that comes out of the bottom hose to use for rinsing and soaking your hair after washing, rinsing your face and sensitive skin areas regularly without need for added soaps)

Clean (soak for 3-5 min.) vegetables with acid water to kill the germs without harming the healthiness of the vegetables. 

Strong Alkaline Water is Also for Cleaning

In addition to using acidic water to clean vegetables, soak your vegetables in the strongest alkaline water for 5-10 min. to dissolve the pesticides from their surface. Farmers are using pesticides today that are oily, because the oily pesticides don’t wash off easily in the rain. The oiliness makes the pesticides hard to wash off. Now you can counteract that by soaking your non-organic vegetables in the strong alkaline water. The water will turn a brownish color. That’s the dirt and pesticides becoming released. After 10 minutes, Pour that water out and soak once more in some fresh alkaline water for another minute or so, and you’re ready to go.

Strong alkaline water is good for cleaning anything greasy or oily.

Water Ionizer Other Uses

  • Pimples, boils, infections or other skin eruptions use at the medium to strongest acidic setting and soak the infected area for 20-minute periods 2 to 3 times per day or more if desired until healed. If the area gets and stays red, reduce the acidity-level.
  • Sore throats: You probably won’t be getting sore throats now that you’re drinking alkaline ionized water, however if you do, try gargling with strong acidic water several times per day and see if that helps.

My background is in physiology, teaching, nutrition and weight loss. I have raised 5 children who are all grown now. I have a masters degree in education and was a teacher/principal for 24 years. I created Alkaline Water Plus in 2009 to educate people about the benefits of ionized water.

The very best thing I have ever purchased is a WATER IONIZER, and I've been in perfect health ever since I started drinking ionized water 25 years ago! Understanding and knowing how to control and manage my own body's pH and antioxidant levels at the cellular level has made all the difference in the world in my life, my family's lives and in a countless number of my friends and associates over the years.
