Introduction and Reviews About Alkaline Ionized Water: By Doctors For Doctors
Doctors, who have tried many things to help their patients, are of course going to observe some good things when they integrate alkaline ionized water into their practice.
What are the healthful uses of the different pH levels of alkaline ionized water?
- An 8.5 pH to 9.5 pH alkaline ionized water is the perfect drinking water. It will help to neutralize the acidity of the body and slightly alkalize the body. In addition, the negative ORP [oxidation reduction potential] of these levels of ionized water will provide the body with lots of easily assumable antioxidants.
- Purified water at the 5.5 pH acidic level is perfect for neutralizing the skin and hair. It’s used as a hair rinse and skin toner.
- Purified water at the pH levels of 5 – 7 pH is great for watering plants. Plants love the purified micro clustered water, and they also love the water to be slightly acidic.
- A neutral 7.0 – 8.0 pH purified water is perfect for taking medications.
- Two forms of natural, chemical free, cleaning agents can be created using the strongest level of ionization.
- Acidic Germicidal Water is at the pH level of 2.5 – 4.
- De-greasing and/or stain-removal cleaner is created with the pH levels of 10-11.5
If you are a doctor reading this, I encourage you to get just one water ionizer for yourself to try it.
You owe it to yourself, family and patients to learn about this not-so-new technology of water ionization for yourself. Just the hydrating potential alone is incredible with ionized water! The kind of water varies so greatly around the country, but one thing every municipality has in common is their water is highly treated and the molecules are in large H2O clusters [not as found in nature]. A water ionizer not only offers good filtration of the water but the big thing is it splits open the water cluster, breaking out the antioxidant potential of the micro clustered alkaline ionized water, so you are going to get the most hydrating experience by drinking this water.
I’m writing about several doctors in this article and letting you hear in their own words what they have to say about alkaline ionized water.
Starting with Dr. Ross Anderson, a Naturopathic doctor. Dr. Anderson has created a series of very short videos that he made as an introduction to alkaline ionized water for his patients’ benefit. I think these introductory water ionizer videos might serve other doctors with their patients as well. If you are a doctor reading this post, please consider trying a water ionizer for yourself as Dr. Ross did. Dr. Ross was in a desperate situation when he decided to try a water ionizer. He had cancer. He has beaten his cancer with an alkaline diet, which of course included an alkaline water ionizer.
Another doctor who has made it his business to test and try water ionizers is Prof. Wantanabe Ifao, of Wantanabe Hospital in Japan.
Dr. Wantanabe was working with gynecology patients and had this to say about alkaline ionized water:
“Ionized alkaline antioxidant water improves body constituents and ensures effective healing to many illnesses. The uses of antioxidant water in gynecological patients have proved to be very effective. The main reason for its effectiveness is that this water can neutralize toxins.
When given antioxidant water to pre-eclamptic toxemia cases, the results are most significant. During my long years of servicing the pre-eclamptic toxemia cases, I found that the women with pre-eclamptic toxemia who consumed antioxidant water tend to deliver healthier babies with stronger muscles. A survey report carried out on babies in this group showed intelligence above average.”
Of course Dr. Wantanabe was working in Japan, where the atmosphere for natural healing and treatment of patients is far friendlier than in the US. His findings are impressive to me. I remember having toxemia when I was pregnant. That is a scary thing! Also, the fact that the babies of the mothers who were drinking ionized water were stronger, healthier and smarter is significant to me as a mother. I think lots of mothers would want this information. Who do the new mothers rely on for that information? That’s right…their doctors.
This next set of recommendations for alkaline ionized water is not from a medical or Naturopathic doctor but a VIP nonetheless. His name is Dr. Ray Kurzweil.
Dr. Kruzweil is a contemporary genius who has done so much and invented so much that he’s been awarded 15 honorary doctorates and been personally greeted and congratulated by three US presidents. Why do I bring up a non-health-related doctor? First of all because he’s an obviously smart guy and an opinion leader in many subject areas. He’s the kind of guy who researches, tests, and makes his opinion based on facts, statistics and results. To me this seems natural, but not everyone does this. Most people honestly just turn to experts for advice and go with that. So, here’s what Dr. Kursweil has to say about water ionizers:
There are more benefits to “alkaline water” than simply the alkalinity or pH. The most important feature of alkaline water produced by a water alkalinizer is its oxidation reduction potential (ORP). Water with a high negative ORP is of particular value in its ability to neutralize oxygen free radicals.
Free radicals are among the most damaging molecules in the body and are highly unstable molecules that are oxidizing agents and are electron deficient. They are a principal cause of damage and disease in the body. Oxygen free radicals contribute significantly to a broad variety of harmful conditions in the body ranging from life-threatening conditions such as heart disease, stroke and cancer, to less severe conditions such as sunburns, arthritis, cataracts, and many others. Free radicals MUST get electrons from somewhere and will steal them from whatever molecules are around, including normal, healthy tissues.
Damage to tissues results when free radicals strip these electrons from healthy cells. If the damage goes on unchecked, this will lead to disease. For example, the oxidation of LDL cholesterol particles in arterial walls by free radicals triggers an immune system response that results in atherosclerosis, the principal cause of heart disease. The negative ions in alkaline water from an electrolysis machine are a rich source of electrons that can be donated to these free radicals in the body, neutralizing them and stopping them from damaging healthy tissues. Specifically, these ions have the potential to engage in the chemical reactions necessary to neutralize oxygen free radicals.
Another benefit of drinking alkaline water is that it assists in the absorption of minerals. We know that if the body is not absorbing enough minerals, it will rob minerals from the body’s mineral reserves, chiefly calcium from the bones.
It is well known that many chronic diseases result in excess acidity of the body (metabolic acidosis). We also know that the body tends to become more acidic due to modern dietary habits and lifestyles and the aging process itself. By drinking high negative ORP alkaline water, you combat metabolic acidosis and improve absorption of nutrients.
The blood is carefully buffered to keep it in a narrow range between pH 7.35 to 7.45. The body keeps blood pH stable by utilizing alkaline buffers, chiefly bicarbonate, to neutralize acidic liquids (such as colas, which have a pH as low as 2.5) and other acidic products and byproducts. But as the blood stream receives these acidic substances, the alkaline buffers get used up.
Drinking alkaline water helps reduce the burden on the limited alkaline buffers which are needed for the body’s natural detoxification
Wow, Dr. Kurswall really said a mouthful, but it’s all the basics of what makes ionized water so unique and healthy. It’s not just healthy for you in one way…it’s multiple ways. When you find something this simple that is so effective, it says something. In my eyes the simpler things get the closer to the truth you are.
This next doctor is Dr. Don Colbert, a board certified medical doctor, who has a passion for alternative medicine.
He wrote a book called “The Seven Pillars of Health”, and in it he says:
“I have had countless numbers of patients with painful osteoarthritis on many different medications for arthritis. Many have been pain free within a couple of months after adjusting their urine pH to 7.0 to 7.5 by consuming adequate amounts of alkaline water and alkaline foods. As a result, many are able to go off of their medications.”
Here’s what Prof. Kuwata Keijiroo a Doctor of Medicine in Japan says about his diabetic patients:
“When I was serving in the Fire Insurance Association, I used to examine many diabetic patients. Besides treating them with drugs, I provided them with ionized water. After drinking ionized water for one month, 15 diabetic patients were selected and sent to Tokyo University for further test and observations.
Initially, the more serious patients were a bit apprehensive about the treatment. When the ionized water was consumed for some time, the sugar in the blood and urine ranged from a ratio of 300 mg/l to 2 mg/ dc. There was a time where the patient had undergone 5 to 6 blood tests a day and detected to be within normal range. Results also showed that even 1 1/2 hour after meals, the blood sugar and urine ratio was 100 mg/dc 0 mg/dc. The sugar in the urine has completely disappeared.”
Another doctor, Dr. Emoto, of Japan studied water extensively. Here is what he had to say:
Water that contains a healthy balance of minerals and which is not polluted or contaminated with toxins tends to form a hexagonal shaped crystal when frozen.
Scientist, Dr. Emoto, discovered the relationship between water that forms hexagonal shaped crystals and water which is healthy, natural and unpolluted [as found high up in a mountain spring]. Dr. Emoto studied water from the tap as well as bottled waters, distilled water and other water either polluted or devoid of minerals and found that they didn’t produce beautiful crystals. Instead they produced ugly, disorganized forms when frozen. The picture below is a series of photos Dr. Emoto took of a drop of ionized water from a Jupiter water ionizer as it was being frozen. Why is the crystal shape important? Because this shape is only seen in the healthiest water found at high altitudes in natural springs, such as Hunza water or Lourdes in France. These waters are noted for their healing properties.
We need more US doctors to try and test water ionizers in their own homes and with their patients.
The doctor is one of the best ways to get new health related news out to their patients. Most people do listen to their doctors. I’m afraid that the AMA is not friendly toward natural solutions being used or recommended by board certified doctors, without clear statements made as to the intent, so there may be issues with how this is presented. First of all, a water ionizer is a medical device in Korea and Japan, but is simply not a medical device in the US, and until such time as it is a doctor would need to be careful to state that this water was being recommended as part of a holistic approach to helping the patient regain a healthy state, and it is not intended for curing any particular illness [or something like that]. But if you’re a doctor, chiropractor, Naturopathic doctor, registered nurse, physical therapist, or any other health practitioner and would like to try a water ionizer for yourself, please call me at 1-888-692-5525 and I will make sure you get a good professional discount. [You’ll need to mention this article].
