Cancer & Disease
Keeping Cells, Tissues and Organs Slightly Alkaline Helps Prevent Cancer & Disease
Diseases are Preventable! By drinking alkaline ionized water, you can help counteract the acids in the foods and drinks you consume. Having both pH buffers and antioxidants within your body, you naturally improve your chances for maintaining optimal health.
What I did was to start drinking alkaline ionized water all day, every day, over 20 years ago. Just doing that, without even improving my diet and lifestyle, helped me to become free of allergies, infections and colds that I used to have (but no longer do).
Every day, hundreds of thousands of people are drinking alkaline ionized water and are changing their overall health as well. It seems that alkaline ionized water has the ability to slow down aging, promote healthy weight loss, detoxify bodies, and boost immunity. The amount of energy and healthiness that I feel every day [without fail] is telling me something! Since I've been drinking ionized water, I am healthier now, at 66, than I was at 45!

The Importance of Water to Disease Prevention
Dehydration is a factor in many major health problems. Common health risks caused by dehydration are: low energy, migraines, type II diabetes, hypertension, weight gain, low back pain and colon problems. I'll bet the last thing 99% of the population thinks when they get a headache, back pain or heartburn is that they should go drink water. We are often trained to not like water, take it for granted or completely disregard it.
Ionized water is clearly a superior water. It is alkalizing, has powerful antioxidants, and provides superior hydration to your cells. Alkaline ionized water can reach and actually be used by your cells better than tap or bottled water.
Ionized Water and Disease
Some diseases are caused by excess acidity in our cells which weakens all body systems. Here are two examples:
- Cancer: Dr. Otto Warburgh proved eighty years ago that cancer cells “live in hypoxic, very low oxygen, and acidic conditions and derive energy from sugars by fermenting them the way yeast does”. He found that at the most fundamental stage, cancer couldn't thrive in an alkaline environment. Using that data, we can deduce that if we keep bathing our cells and tissues in alkaline ionized water, it logically helps to keep them healthy and free of cancer growth.
- Osteoporosis: Caused by our high stress lifestyles, diets, and pollutants, body-acidification affects virtually everyone. Excess body acidity forces the body to rob minerals [calcium and magnesium] from the body's reserves in the bones and joints.
Ionized Water, Alkaline Reserves & Fighting Cancer
A healthy body has sufficient alkaline reserves to balance itself. Children have an abundance of alkaline reserves, but those reserves become depleted over time, in particular if your diet isn't rich enough in alkaline minerals. If you don't do something to reverse the body's tendency toward acidification, then a deadly disease, such as cancer, could set in. I have personally known 2 people who beat their stage IV cancers, and they each said they were making NO progress until they each bought a water ionizer and started drinking ionized water. It was drinking alkaline ionized water that was at least a major factor in fighting their cancers. I have heard of dozens more who have had similar stories, but these are the two I actually know.
How to Alkalize the Body (and Why this is Urgent in Beating Cancer)
Cancer treatment is not a subject that anyone is claiming to be the absolute master over. But most natural healing schools forward the concept of alkalizing the area of the cancer as a first step in beating it. It only makes sense that the first step in beating cancer is to alkalize the body. Getting the area of the cancer alkalized, in order suppress cancer growth FIRST, before anything else, is simply a cautious thing to do. It applies the data that Dr. Warburgh taught us 80 years ago. Cutting into a cancerous area without such precautions would be risky. Dr. Warburgh won a Nobel Prize for his discoveries about how pH influences the ability for cancer to thrive or be killed, and these discoveries have helped many people around the world beat their cancer. Once the pH of the bodily fluids is alkaline it would stand to reason that you could then more safely remove the cancerous tumor without risk of it spreading.
Once someone is diagnosed with cancer, it is obvious that SPEED is of the essence to alkalize the body. However, you should be aware that if you dive into trying to alkalize the body too fast you may cause yourself problems. There are safe and unsafe ways to alkalize one's body, so please avoid the unsafe and focus on the safe.
Completely Safe Way to Alkalize One's Body
- It is always safe to eat lots of greens, raw foods, and alkaline drinks, including ionized water between meals.
- Alkaline ionized water is lightly alkaline, which means a glass of ionized water can be neutralized with a simple drop or two of lemon juice. Alkaline ionized water is perfect for between-meals drinking, just by itself, without the lemon juice, and assisting the bodily fluids to be a slightly alkaline pH.
Aggressive Alkalizing [Use a Gradient Approach):
To reverse an acidic, cancerous body pH, one will need to also employ some intense body-alkalizing methods, such as consuming bicarbonate regularly. You might want to work with a local nutritionist or naturopath for consultation in maintaining the body's overall nutritional balance during this period. Here is a safe way to consume bicarbonate:
- I suggest to check your saliva pH regularly. Saliva is a bodily fluid and when you test it you can get a good idea of the progress you are making in bringing your bodily fluids up to more alkaline levels. Test it regularly (first thing in the morning, or any time on an empty stomach). If you have cancer, you will want to try to bring the bodily-fluids pH (saliva pH) up to 8 and keep it there until you are cancer free for some time. If you are doing this for cancer prevention, you should bring the saliva pH up above 7 (but not as high as 8) and keep it there as a life-long healthy habit.
- On an empty stomach, drink a glass (6-8 oz) of ionized water in which is stirred a small amount of sodium bicarbonate (baking soda). (Start with only 1/4 teaspoon per glass and work up to 1 full teaspoon over time as your body demonstrates tolerance for it. Only do more than this if after 2 weeks you continue to get acidic results on the pH strips saliva test.)
- Do this once or twice per day, and work up to 3 or 4 times per day only if needed (by saliva test) and if your body allows. Note: It is essential to do this on an empty stomach, so that the bicarbonate can enter and leave your stomach quickly and not upset the regular pH of the stomach too much or for too long.
- Make sure to at least wait 20 minutes after consuming bicarbonate to consume anything else. If you're planning to eat relatively soon, after taking bicarbonate, I suggest you do the apple cider vinegar routine (next section) first. It is best not to mix vinegar with bicarbonate, but you can safely do it if you wait a good 20 minutes after taking the bicarbonate.
Apple Cider Vinegar (A Perfect Balance for Aggressive Alkalizing):
Apple cider vinegar is acidic, but has an overall alkalizing effect on the body. Before meals put 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass (6-8 oz) of ionized water and drink it up quickly. It won't taste bad. I prefer the apple cider vinegar "with mother", because that is the type that is best for promoting a healthy gut. You can eat right away after drinking this if you want, but you don't have to.
Things to Watch Out For:
- Watch your body for signs of over-alkalizing.
- If you feel ill, dizzy, pressure on your chest, pressure on your neck, or your blood pressure spikes, use more apple cider vinegar and/or lay off the bicarbonate for a while (at least a few hours).
- If swelling occurs, do the same, but also it helps to take a little magnesium*, which will pull the fluids out of your cells and into your gut.
- [*Note: From my observation and experimentation with this, I can tell that sodium and calcium force fluids away from the gut and into cells and tissues, while magnesium forces it out of cells and tissues and back into the gut.]
- Don't introduce too many new things at once. If you do have an adverse reaction, you want to be able to identify what you did that was different. This way it reduce confusion and puts better control in your hands of your orderly progress toward natural healing.
- Don't try to get a saliva test result higher than 8 pH. Just patiently keep your body pH at 8 for weeks and months (until you can get confirmation from your doctor that the cancer is in remission).
Ionized Water and Anti-Oxidants
Over and above the pH [alkalizing] benefits of alkaline ionized water, a water ionizer produces powerful hydrogen antioxidants.
When anyone is diagnosed with cancer or a major disease, it's obviously going to be stressful. Not only can you expect your body to react to the mental stresses (with more acidity) but also most medical treatment is physically stressful to the body. For instance radiation is physically stressful and damaging to the healthy cells, and alkaline ionized water is great to drink 24/7 during such treatment. (I would suggest you check with your doctors though. It's likely that alkaline ionized water is not going to adversely effect any particular treatment, but I can't say for sure.)
Why are hydrogen antioxidants so important? Researchers believe free radical damage plays a major role in heart disease, premature aging, radiation poisoning, Alzheimer's disease, rheumatoid arthritis and many of the adverse effects of cancer treatment. Hydrogen antioxidants are able to bond with and neutralize free radicals more effectively and safely than any other antioxidant. As a matter of fact, experts in this subject claim there is no such thing as an overdose of molecular hydrogen. It is completely safe and is inert (does nothing whatsoever) unless there is a stress to the body, at which time it would step in to alleviate the toxic free-radical stresses on the body. (Note: Molecular hydrogen doesn't neutralize all free-radicals; it is selective and only neutralizes the toxic ones.) Some recent studies have shown molecular hydrogen to even help to counter-act the onset of degenerative diseases. We can't claim that water ionizers cure anything, but medical research points to a great correlation between the molecular hydrogen and cure-rates for over 138 diseases.
