Water is important for all people, but there is no time when a woman needs water, in particular alkaline water, more than during pregnancy.
Drinking Ionized Water During Pregnancy
Almost everyone has a hard time staying pH-balanced these days, but especially gestating mothers. Here are two good reasons for that: 1) The baby needs alkalinity in order to stay healthy and grow properly. He is taking a whole lot of the mother's alkaline buffers while in the womb. 2) The pregnant mother-to-be has not only her own bodily acids that need to be neutralized but also the baby’s. (Note: Almost all bodily wastes are acidic wastes.These acid wastes are expelled, by way of the placenta, back into the mother’s body, but if they build up too much it can be at the root of swelling and many of the other conditions that often arise during pregnancy. The only way the blood can remove acidic wastes is if alkaline buffers are available to bond with them and neutralize them.)
The Need for Water Multiplies While the Pregnant Mother’s Ability to Keep it Down Reduces
The growing baby needs lots of water, not only because it’s body is 75% water, but also the growing amniotic sac is full of almost 100% water. The mother, herself, needs more water. During pregnancy the woman’s blood-volume increases by about 50%. With all this extra need for water, during pregnancy, many women have a hard time keeping water down, because of morning sickness. Alkaline ionized water has two benefits which help with this: 1) it’s micro-clustered [so more water absorbs into cells], and 2) ionized water tends to have a settling effect on a nauseous stomach.
Extensive Studies Showing the Many Benefits of Drinking Ionized Water During Pregnancy
Benefits of drinking ionized water have been demonstrated by tens of thousands of patients of leading Japanese gynecologist, Prof. Watanabe Ifao of Watanabe Hospital, Japan [Head of Gynecology]. His extensive studies have shown that drinking alkaline ionized water can lower the risk of pre-eclampsia, a dangerous condition that develops because of the over-acidity of the mother’s body for an extended time. Dr Wantanabe worked with gynecological patients exclusively. Many of these patients had pre-eclamptic toxemia and made a special trip to see him at his hospital, where he was well-known to have the best results. Dr. Wantanabe used alkaline ionized water to help heal all of these patients.
“Ionized alklaine 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.”
Also, these same studies have demonstrated that drinking ionized water helps stabilize blood pressure, reduce water retention and reduce the swelling in hands, ankles and feet. Interestingly, the follow-up reporting on patients treated in Dr. Wantanabe’s hospital showed the babies intelligence to be above average as well. There are many benefits of drinking ionized water during pregnancy. this subject has been thoroughly researched.
Drinking Ionized Water Before Pregnancy
Don’t wait until you’re pregnant to get your body into good shape. There are many benefits of drinking ionized water to be had by anyone. Here is some suggested reading:
Drinking Ionized Water After the Baby is Born
Hopefully by the time your baby is born you will see all of the benefits of drinking ionized water. The baby will be alkaline enough for at least the first few years of life, so it’s not suggested to give the infant ionized water. Neutral, filtered water is great for infants. You will have a lot of recovering to do, probably some weight to lose, and you’ll want to have lots of energy.
I have discovered in the past few years that the antioxidants in ionized water come from both H2 (molecular hydrogen) and OH-. H2 antioxidants are measured with a Hydrogen Meter and an ORP meter measures both OH- antioxidants and molecular hydrogen (combined). The difference didn't seem too significant to me at first, but researchers have focused [...]
What are electric water ionizers and hydrogen makers, and how are they different? This post will give you practical answers to these questions. My main intention is to give you information you need to make an informed decision in a way that it's easy to assimilate. Each category, below, compares these water ionizing devices in its [...]
Actually everyone can exercise. So can you! And, here’s 1) why you should exercise, and 2) how drinking electrolyzed, hydrogen-rich, ionized water can help your exercise and fitness.1. Exercise Helps to Alkalize Your Body When you exercise you increase your breathing rate and circulation, and this helps to alkalize your body. Deep breathing alkalizes your body [...]
What is Structured Water? Structured water is the kind of water found in living plants and animals. It is water molecules lined-up in an orderly fashion. This type of orderly water can enter cells easier and better hydrate them. It can reject toxins and disease, and it has a much higher potential energy than regular water. Structured [...]
What Causes Memory Loss or Dementia? According to medical research sites, dementia [or memory loss] has many potential causes.Here are some of the more common reasons theorized: * Oxidative Stress: The brain uses more oxygen [per unit of weight] than any other body part. Because of this it is subject to what’s called free-radical damage, or oxidative stress. In November, [...]
You will hear from many big-name health professionals that you need to alkalize your body for health. Why?PH balance is crucial to the good health of our cells, tissues, organs, skin, and whole body. Each organ has a “preferred” pH-level, but most organs love a slightly alkaline pH. This is true even of the bowels, liver [...]
Alkaline Water: How It Can Help Acid Re-flux DiseaseAcid Re-flux is preventable. If you get a little education on the way a body works, you begin to realize that many of today’s chronic illnesses are preventable. Unfortunately, doctors are not trained to think that way. It’s rather hard to grasp, most often, that doctors are [...]
A History of Alkaline Ionized WaterAs part of understanding water ionizers it's helpful to know a little of its history. Many accounts of alkaline water benefits start in Japan in the Twentieth Century. There is some evidence, however, that an understanding and use of alkaline ionized water started much earlier than this.It is said that religious [...]
Baking soda [sodium bi-carbonate] is alkaline. Should people consume baking soda as an alternative to alkaline ionized water to buffer the pH balance in their cells? In one word “NO”, baking soda is NOT even remotely acceptable for human consumption, let alone using it as an alternative to alkaline ionized water. It is true, it [...]
