When we think of pure water we tend to think of bottled water, filtered water, or even reverse osmosis water, and place emphasis only on the removal of bacteria, chlorine, viruses etc.
But we have all been missing several equally important elements of water that can drastically affect our health:
What is in ionized water? When water has been ionized, it contains a negative charge (ORP), is oxygen rich, alkaline and contains millions of natural antioxidant bubbles called hydroxyl ions. Ionized Water has two antioxidant qualities; its negative charge and the presence of hydroxyl ions, which are free radical scavengers.
Ionized Water is very detoxifying, which is why people who are very toxic must start drinking Ionized Water very slowly so they do not detoxify too quickly. Ionized Water is sometimes called Re-Structured Water, Reduced Water or Micro Clustered Water because of its small molecular grouping, which allows it to easily enter and cleanse at a cellular level. As it hydrates body tissue, it pushes out all toxins that don’t belong in the body.
What is ORP? ORP stands for Oxidation Reduction Potential. Water either has a "positive" or "negative" ORP, measured in millivolts (mV).
It is the negative ORP that is beneficial to our body in that it reduces oxidation (anti-oxidants). Negative ORP is in ionized water and fresh, uncooked foods.
Positive ORP increases oxidation (aging) and is found in tap water, bottled waters, distilled and reverse osmosis waters as well as cooked foods, processed foods and beverages.
ORP, the most powerful function of ionized water, is fragile and lasts only 18-24 hours.
What are the benefits of alkaline water? Water ionizers produce antioxidant, high pH alkaline water to detoxify your entire body and wash acidic waste from your tissues and cells.
• Ionized water increases the effectiveness of your digestive enzymes, which helps eliminate body fat, and aids in weight loss and increases the acidophilus in your body, which reduce harmful bacteria and parasites.
• Ionized water rejuvenates your skin, gives you more energy and alertness due to its high oxygen content and hydrates your body up to six times more effectively than conventional water.
• Ionized water improves the taste, digestibility and nutrient absorption of foods while decreasing its acidity.
• Ionized water supports overall health and healing by bringing the body into pH balance!
Why is pH important? With a water ionizer, the pH level can be adjusted between 4.0 (very acidic) to pH 10+ (alkaline). Because of the predominance of hydroxyl ions in ionized water, the water is alkaline, meaning it has a high pH.
All disease thrives in an acid environment in the body and will not flourish in an alkaline environment.
If we acidify our bodies through poor diet we become vulnerable to any disease that invades it. The more acidic we are, the more susceptible we become to disease. As disease flourishes in the body, it begins to create an even more acidic environment; spreading further until it consumes us. These acids, if not neutralized cause inflammation, free radicals, and kill healthy cells by stealing oxygen.
Alkaline water and food will not only dissolve these harmful acids but will help remove them from the body by allowing them to pass safely through the kidneys and not be stored in our joints, glands and organs.
Why is oxygen important? Oxygen is a nutrient the body desperately needs. It makes us alert and invigorated. It carries vital nutrients around the body. For someone with cancer, the high oxygen level provided by ionized water is particularly helpful since oxygen destroys cancer cells. Drinking ionized water gives you energy. The body is starved for electrons and alkaline ionized water contains an abundance of them, which nullify free radicals in the body.
Why should we actually avoid drinking non-ionized water? Purified water, reverse osmosis or distilled water should be completely avoided. It is water that has had all the minerals removed from so it is literally pure H2O. Because of its extreme purity, purified water absorbs carbon dioxide out of the air, which makes it acidic and even more aggressive at dissolving alkaline substances it comes in contact with. It turns the body acidic, leaches vital minerals from teeth and bones and does not hydrate the body well at all.
What is acidic or low pH water good for? Oxidized water with its ORP of +700 to +800 mV is an oxidizing agent that can withdraw electrons from bacteria and kill them. While the following positive results are obtained from using acidic water externally, DO NOT DRINK IT.
Acidic water can be gathered from a water ionizer for the following purposes:
• Kills bacteria on contact - great for kitchen counters, cutting boards, etc!
• Helps heal cuts, blisters, scrapes, or rashes!
• Provides excellent relief from mosquito bites and bee stings!
• Provides excellent relief from poison ivy & poison oak!
• Used as a hair rinse, it conditions the hair, leaving it soft and smooth!
• Conditions skin, which should be slightly acidic!
• Relieves chapped hands, dry, itchy skin, and reduces age spots!
• Effectively removes plaque from teeth. Use it instead of toothpaste!
• Wash vegetables, fruits, meats and fish with it to kill bacteria!
• Gargle with it to relieve sore throats or other mouth sores!
• Works as an astringent to pull skin tighter, decreasing wrinkles!
• Helps clear acne, eczema and fungus, such as athlete's foot!
• Promotes plant growth and general plant health including herbs and wheat grass!
• Extends the life of cut flowers!
There is nothing more important for the body than water and there is no better water than ionized water. Water is our best defense against disease of every kind. Sixty percent or more of all chronic disease would be significantly reduced if people would simply keep themselves properly hydrated with ionized water.
“Japanese and some American hospital research has found ionized water useful for the treatment of cancer, diabetes, intestinal problems, liver problems and other chronic diseases. Alkalinized ionized water can play a powerful role in reversing the degenerative results of an acid system. This is a revolutionary health breakthrough. The ionized water replicates the ‘living qualities’ of high-altitude mountain spring water.” Gabriel Cousens, M.D. Conscious Eating
