"Water is not just some colorless and tasteless one-dimensional liquid; on the contrary, life on earth originated from water, and all life forms depend on water to sustain them. ...Without water neither humans nor any other life forms can exist."
Author, Reverse Aging
"Since the accumulation of acid wastes is aging, the reduction of acid wastes is reverse aging. Alkaline water is not a medicine to cure any disease. However, if consumed regularly, alkaline water helps to gradually reduce the accumulated acid wastes."
Sang Whang's book, Reverse Aging, greatly influenced me to spend the money [$1,100.00, which was a huge investment for me at the time] and purchase my first water ionizer back in the mid-90's. I bought a water ionizer to "reverse aging" for myself. I wanted to avoid all of the body conditions associated with aging (that Sang Whang mentions he had before buying his first water ionizer) and also look good all the way through my middle and senior years. I'm happy to say that I've accomplished all of that and obviously Sang Whang did as well. He explains his story, briefly, in this video. I think Sang Whang's book is as relevant today as it was when I bought it, and everybody wanting to understand the simple science of aging should buy this book. You can see his video interview here.
Dr. Howard Hay (1930)
"...people with more acidic blood were more likely to be ill. He defined a pH range of 7.4 to 7.5 to be associated with good health. When foods are metabolized, acids are produced which are neutralized by the alkaline salts (carbonates) of calcium, magnesium, potassium and sodium. Foods containing chlorine, phosphorous, sulfur and nitrogen, animal products and refined carbohydrates tend to be acid forming." Dr. Howard Hay (1930)
Here are some examples of Acid Forming, but Healthy Foods...
- Foods high in chlorine: cabbage,cauliflower, broccoli and Brussels sprouts.
- Foods high in phosphorous: meats, poultry, fish, nuts, beans and dairy.
- Foods high in sulfur: broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower and eggs.

"I have administered over 5000 gallons of this water for about every health situation imaginable. I feel that restructured alkaline water can benefit everyone."
Dr. Don Colbert
Author, 7 Pillars of Health
"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."
Dr. Mu Shik Jhon
[Hexagonal Water Research]
"Hexagonal (alkaline ionized water) water moves easily within the cellular matrix of the body, helping with nutrient absorption and waste removal."
Dr. Leonard Horowitz
"International studies show that populations with little or no history of illness, such as cancer…, drink higher (pH) alkaline waters. After all potential risk factors were considered and factored out, it became evident that they had been drinking waters with a pH of 9.0 to 10.0."
Dr. William Kelly
"Alkaline water, produced by a water ionizer, has become the most important advancement in health care since Sir Alexander Fleming’s discovery of penicillin."
Dr. Ingfried Hobert
"I say you do not need expensive medicine with all the negative side effects to regain health. Alkaline water has profound long term effects because it alkalizes your body and provides an effective antioxidant."
"...by drinking alkaline water, the aging process can be reversed and the wastes can be reduced in the long term to a level of a much younger person. The functions of the organs can be revived."

"Increasing your consumption of good quality tap water or filtered water can transform your health and play a central role in the healing of virtually all degenerative diseases. However, alkaline water has profound long-term effects because it alkalizes your body and provides an effective anti-oxidant."
Dr. Robert Atkins
Author, The Atkins' Diet
"The cells and fluids in most people’s bodies…are overly acidic. This can cause a lot of health problems. It prevents your body from neutralizing and disposing of harmful, poisonous toxins and leaves you more susceptible to the cell-damaging free radical oxidation that leads to cancer and other diseases."
Dr. Peggy Parker
Dr. Parker discovered that by correcting oxidation of the cell membrane with high-quality ionized water; the healing power of the cell becomes activated.
"This profound discovery will change the face of medicine."
Dr. Parker is a traditionally trained Naturopathic Physician who resides in Spokane, Washington. She is an internationally renowned teacher and lecturer. After receiving her Naturopathic degree, Dr. Parker continued her education with a post doctoral degree in Biological Medicine from the PBMN in Lustmühle, Switzerland. This intensive, two year program was designed and led by the famous Swiss physician, Dr. Thomas Rau. The basic focus of this course revolved around adjusting the pH (acid/alkaline ration within body fluids), ORP (rate of oxidation in body tissues), and the conductivity of minerals across the cell membrane, and just how these factors affect health. In addition to a successful private practice, Dr. Parker consulted with holistic Medical Doctors around the country, served as the Medical Director of Fusion MediSpa in Northern Idaho for several years. As a physician Dr. Parker has been trained to both administer and evaluate tests including Darkfield Microscopy, Biological Terrain Assessment (QFA), EAV, Electro-Dermal Screening, Computer Regulation Thermography, Tongue and Pulse Diagnosis, Sclerology, Heart Rate Variability, Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis, Applied Kinesiology and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy to name a few. In addition to her medical training, Dr. Parker is a gifted medical intuitive and has been trained as a Reiki Master, a Yuen practitioner, a Neuro-Modulation Technique therapist, a Lymphatic Drainage Therapist, a Herbalist, an Nutritionist and holds undergraduate training as a counselor.
Dr. Parker became involved with water ionizers in January of 2005. Her primary interest was in the efficacy of this water as a form of treatment. This led her to do extensive testing and research on the topic of ionized water and its impact on health. Dr Parker states:
“As a Biological Medicine Physician, I have been measuring the levels of oxidation in the bodily fluids for about a decade using a very sophisticated piece of lab equipment called the QFA (Quantitative Fluid Analysis). Based on the rate of oxidation in these fluids this measurement device calculates a person’s biological age."
"For most people this biological age is generally 20-50 years older than their actual chronological age. Since it is our biological age that determines the length of our life, that number is quite significant. More than three years of testing and research have led me to the discovery that drinking reduced alkaline water is the most effective tool for quickly, easily and economically changing the rate of oxidation on cells that I have ever encountered.”
As the cell membranes within our body become oxidized they become damaged. This prevents nutrient absorption into cells and also prevents wastes to be removed from cells. The abundant antioxidants in ionized water reverses oxidation of tissues and membranes and allows for better hydration, cell metabolism and overall cell health.
Prof. Watanabe Ifao
Watanabe Hospital [Head of Gynecology]
"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.

Dr. Ben Johnson, MD, DO, ND
"We talk a lot about Oxidation Reduction Potential and it's huge, but lets not forget that we're talking about alkaline water and if your asking which is more important, it is the ORP, but alkalinity is very important too. Everything in the body works better when the body is alkaline, enzymes work better and enzymes are necessary for most functions in the body even creating energy, even electricity. The electricity that all cells work on in the body, it's essential that you have a alkaline environment. It limits how much energy or how fast the reactions can occur. If you don't have the proper enzyme functions, and is to some degree the measure of alkalinity everything in the body works off of hormones too. You've got thyroid hormones, testoterone, estrogen, all the different hormones in the body. Alkalininty makes those work better." You can see his video at the bottom of this page.

"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.
"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.
"Drinking alkaline water helps reduce the burden on the limited alkaline buffers which are needed for the body’s natural detoxification”
Dr. Susan Lark, M.D.
Author, The Chemistry of Success
"Peak performance and optimal health depend on the body’s ability to maintain a slightly alkaline state in virtually all our cells and tissues…Drinking four to six glasses of alkaline water a day will help to neutralize over-acidity and over time will help to restore your buffering ability. Alkaline water should be used when conditions of over-acidity develop, such as colds, flu or bronchitis. Like vitamins C, E and Beta Carotene, alkaline water acts as an antioxidant because of its excess supply of free electrons. This can help the body against the development of heart disease, strokes, immune dysfunctions, and other common ailments."
Dr. Sherry Rogers, M.D.

"Alkaline water rids the body of acid waste…After carefully evaluating the results of my advice to hundreds of individuals, I’m convinced that toxicity in the form of acidic waste is the primary cause of degenerative diseases."
Dr. Hidemitsu Hayashi, Ph.D
Director Water Institute, Tokyo
"Chlorinated tap water is polluted with non-biological chemicals and negative energy imprints. It is also devoid of bio-energy and so may be regarded as being badly polluted as well as ‘dead’. Alkaline living water is regarded by a growing number of health care professionals as the best water to drink and is listed as a medical device in Japan for the treatment of degenerative diseases."
Felicia Drury Climent
Author The Acid Alkaline Balance Diet
"After years of very positive continuous clinical experiments that I am conducting with hundreds of clients using electronically restructured alkaline water, it is my opinion that this technology will change the way in which all health providers and the public will approach their health in coming years….My suggestion is to drink restructured alkaline water whenever possible."

CELLS NEED STRUCTURED, IONIZED WATER: DR. MERCOLLA AND DR GERALD POLLACK EXPLAIN
According to Dr. Mercolla (an osteopathic physician and web entrepeneur) and Dr. Pollack (a bi-engineer at the University of Washington), cells need structured water. Structured water is the result of water ionization either in nature, a filtration process or in a machine. It has been observed that in nature certain "healing waters" have been discovered and found to be alkaline, ionized and structured. Dr. Pollack's extensive research shows that living cells need structured water [also known as ionized water]. Water becomes poluted and loses its healthy structure, But then filtration and bottling companies process water in a way that either loses more of its structure or at least doesn't help it regain a healthy structure. Yet, the body's blood, cells and tissues do, in fact, need structured water [ionized water]. The potential energy in ionized water is important for health. [Read more about Structured Water.]
Dr. Steven Barrett of Quackwatch.com Exposed!
Watch out for the Quack Watchers Reviews!
The drug companies have a great deal of money and power and are obviously threatened by natural remedies and preventions, so watch out for people who claim to be neutral product reviewers! Google’s favorite Quackwatch site is exposed for never even seeing, touching or trying the things he’s quacking about. He’s really a spokesperson for the drug companies and other power-hungry individuals who don’t want to see natural remedies considered by people. If you hear, “Quack!”, look behind the scenes to see who is funding the quack-watcher! Here is the article about Dr. Stephen Barrett (of Quackwatch.com) who has admitted ties to the powers-that-be and keeping status quo, and who is also exposed in this article to be a very unethical individual: ”During the course of his examination, Barrett also had to concede his ties to the AMA, Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and Food & Drug Administration (FDA).”
