My Personal Water Ionizer Testimonial

Published by Alkaline Water Plus

I have been drinking ionized water for almost 20 years and in that time I’ve learned that…

Getting Sick is NOT Normal!

Considering that such a large percent of our body is water, drinking ionized water instead of junk is completely scientific and logical. I used to think allergies were a “normal” condition, explained by things like genetics or environment, and that colds were due to spreading viruses. However, in the past 20+ years, since I’ve been drinking ionized water, I have a complete new understanding of what “normal” is. For me, normal is NEVER being sick…not even a little. NOT EVER having a little symptom. Please believe me… it’s not natural to be sick! Allergies and illness can be looked upon as a sign that change is needed.

More About Me

After being a teacher/principal for almost 25 years, I decided to follow a passion of mine [telling people about water ionizers]. In these past few years of selling water ionizers I’ve done extensive research into how water ionizers work and how to properly test and compare them in an effort to provide accurate and reliable information to my customers. I’ve discovered significant differences among water ionizer quality, and how those differences translate into what one can expect [health-wize] from differing types and models of water ionizers.

My Story in a Nutshell

Sixteen years ago, I, like most people, ate a diet high in fats, meats, dairy, processed & refined food, overcooked food, fast food and soft drinks. I considered myself healthy, based on the fact that I rarely missed a day of work. However I had colds, allergies, and periodic ear or throat infections on a regular basis. I tried to eat fairly healthily [i.e., not too much junk food], especially if I felt an illness coming on and I took vitamins. I considered myself normal, but now I know I know better. I had all the signs of an acidic body, and I was headed for disaster!

What is an Acidic Body?

The fact of acidic wastes getting stuck in our cells is called an acidic body. Most people have one.


PH ranges on a scale of 0-14, with 7 pH being neutral. Blood must maintain a narrow balance of 7.365 pH [which is slightly alkaline] at all times…for survival. The alternative is death. Because of this, the blood will not accept acids from the cells if taking on more acids would jeopardize this life-or-death delicate pH balance. Therefore acids become trapped in fat, cells, organs and joints to protect us from too many acids getting into our blood and killing us. These acids impede the cell functions.

If we can’t clean out the acids from our cells we get sick!

So, what disaster was I headed for back in 1993? Probably cancer, heart disease, or both!

Nobel Prize winner, Dr. Warburg, investigated the metabolism of tumors and the respiration of cells with emphasis on cancer cells. He discovered that cancer is like a fungus, it needs acidity to grow and multiply well, and alkalinity slows it down or stops it. “Cancerous tissues are acidic, whereas healthy tissues are alkaline. Water splits into H+ and OH- ions, if there is an excess of H+, it is acidic; if there is an excess of OH- ions, then it is alkaline.”

Nobel Prize winner, 1998, Louis J. lgnarro found a direct correlation between heart disease and free radical damage inside the blood vessel walls.

The Rest of my Story…What Changed?

Back in 1996 through a series of chance happenings [along with my own curiosity – seeking answers] I stumbled upon a new device, called a water ionizer. A water ionizer is a device which transforms ordinary tap water into two streams of water [acid and alkaline]. For drinking, the alkaline stream of water has been found to be very beneficial to one’s health. It not only helps to alkalize the body [providing a constant supply of pH buffers – so that the cells can give off their wastes], but it also provides the body with a huge amount of natural antioxidants to fight free radicals. After several months of drinking alkaline ionized water my body started to transform. The allergies, post-nasal-drip, congestion, colds, infections….all subsided to a point where I was aware that they were gone after about a year of drinking ionized water. Not only that, but my children and husband, as well, all lost the signs and symptoms of an acidic body to the point where we, as a family, almost never went to the doctor after that.  We went from at least 2 visits each to the doctor [for various ailments] per year to NONE [other than well-person check-ups].

What Does Ionized Water do in the Body?

Ionized water bathes our cells in slightly alkaline pH water which not only helps to hydrated them, but even as importantly it helps to draw the acid wastes out of the cells. In addition, water ionizers are to varying degrees capable of adding natural, simple, yet powerful antioxidants into the water. The significance of this is tremendous! Now that we know heart disease [the number-1 killer in the world] is related to free-radical damage inside the blood-vessel walls, the fact of having readily-available free-radical scavengers [i.e., antioxidants] in every sip of water we drink is significant.

Your Cells are Sensitive to the Water you Drink.

I was completely unaware , years ago, of the necessity of cells to have the right water. Now, after all of these years drinking ionized water, I have total certainty about the cell’s reaction to the wrong water and the RIGHT water. It is amazing, but to me, only common sense, the number of ailments that this one, single machine can help prevent or reverse!

Allergies and illness can be looked upon as a sign that change is needed. To learn more about water ionizers, go to my main website (see top navigation bar) study that, and then continue studying this website! I have used every educational tool at my disposal to help you learn all about the subject of water ionizers.

Here are a few Q & A’s about water ionizers that may help you choose the right model for you.

Water ionizers are expensive. Is there any value to getting a dirt-cheap model? No. The fact is water ionizers must have platinum coated titanium electrode plates [which is expensive – platinum is selling for over $1700.00/oz. right now]. There is no proper way of getting around this, and without platinum [no alloys should ever be used] the ionizer is not worth much.

Do you have to spend over $4000. for a water ionizer that will “do it all”? No. Actually, I’ve discovered a few models close to half that price that do better than the $4000. model.

What is the difference between water ionizers? There are lots of differences that you can explore on my Water Ionizer Comparison Page, but I have found that the biggest difference I personally experienced is in the ORP [antioxidant] per unit of pH of that water ionizer. Lower quality water ionizers have less antioxidants and higher quality water ionizers get a greater level of antioxidants.

Low ORP Water Ionizers: When I used an average quality water ionizer [for about 15 years] I got rid of ALMOST all signs of acidity. If ever I had a symptom appear I would just drink more water and it would readily go away.

Mid-Level Water Ionizers: When I upgraded to a mid-level water ionizer I had fewer symptoms ever even occur [but otherwise the same as above].

Superior Water Ionizers: When I upgraded to what I consider a “best quality water ionizer” I stopped having any symptoms occur whatsoever. In addition, some spider veins that had developed slowly over the years [since I turned about 50] disappeared before my very eyes after starting to drink the ionized water from my newest water ionizer, the Jupiter Athena water ionizer.

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.
