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...and that means preventing disease.
Watch this short video to see a few examples of how powerful alkaline ionized water can be.
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! 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). See Success Stories & Testimonial
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 they observed was to be 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.
Why 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 I'm sharing the safe ways with you.
How to Alkalize One's Body
Dr. Shinya, the Japanese surgeon, who invented the colonoscopy, gives all of his patients the following diet to alkalize their intestines, colon and rectum. These protocols would also help to alkalize the rest of the body as well. This is the diet plan he developed through experience with his patients and seeing what helped them [see the first video, above].
- It is always safe to eat lots of greens, raw foods, and alkaline drinks, including alkaline ionized water between meals.
- Don't worry about the digestibility of alkaline ionized water. It is lightly alkaline, by a weak bond, 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 colon and remaining bodily fluids to be a slightly alkaline pH.
- In addition to the alkalizing benefits of ionized water, the antioxidant benefits of free-hydrogen, see benefits of hydrogen water , are equally as great. If you discover your body has a disease or illness drinking ionized water can help. It's a logical choice to prevent disease, but if you failed to do that, the good eating protocols for disease prevention should still be used. They are very likely to help your recover your health, especially if you have caught it early enough. Certainly, if you don't change what you did to get a disease, you could cure it with medical methods only to have it come back again.
- Check your saliva pH regularly.
Apple Cider Vinegar and Sodium Bicarbonate (for Aggressive Alkalizing):
The average person does not need "aggressive alkalizing". It's probably a good idea to test your saliva pH (see link, above) on a regular basis if you are going to engage in aggressive alkalizing. If you have a doctor or nutritional expert who can advise you, I suggest you ask that person before doing more than what is listed here.
Apple cider vinegar is acidic, but has an overall alkalizing effect on the body. 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.
Sodium bicarbonate is another name for baking soda. It's very alkalizing. Use caution though, because it could be over-alkalizing.
You can mix these two ingredients together in a cup of alkaline ionized water to get a highly alkalizing drink.
I would suggest to only use small amounts, such as a tbsp. of apple cider vinegar and 1/2 tsp. baking soda into an 8 oz. glass of alkaline ionized water three times per day. This is not something I would try without constant monitoring.
Things to Watch Out For:
- While you're alkalizing your body, watch for signs of over-alkalizing.
- If you feel ill, dizzy, pressure on your chest, pressure on your neck, intense headache, 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.
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.
