What Water Should I Drink?

Author: Peter Young

Summary: There are many types of water available today. Some are better for your health than others.



Water is the most important substance of life. Quite simply, you can't live without it. Should you ever become lost in the woods, for instance, your survival priorities are in this order: water, shelter, and food. The human body is composed of 80% water, a ratio that must be maintained for good health. Water plays a role in virtually every bodily function, including digestion, circulation, nutrient absorption, body temperature, and the removal of toxins. The primary source of proper hydration is water, and plenty of it.  

There are many different types of water sold in stores today: mineralized, de-mineralized, distilled, ozonated, filtered, and spring water. Throughout the world, though, many people have chosen to drink ionized water all day every day for good health. For over 20 years they've been noticing that installing a water ionizer results in alkaline water that is cleaner, better tasting, and better for them. 


All water ionizers currently manufactured have titanium electrodes that have been dipped in platinum. These electrodes are not stainless steel, and it is important to note that they are coated with platinum, not electroplated. The ionizing process separates the acid from the alkaline minerals in water, with better quality water ionizers offering various levels of alkalinity.


Ionized alkaline water is created by running pre-filtered tap water over the electrodes within the ionizer. About 70% alkaline and 30% acid water is produced.  The alkaline water flows out of the stainless steel nozzle at the top, and the acidic water runs into the sink. Acidic water is also beneficial. It can be stored and used externally on skin irritations, for washing hair or for watering plants that thrive on acidity. Ionizers are very easy to hook up to most conventional faucets.

Through daily use of ionized water, you can detoxify your body and cleanse it of acid waste build-up. An ionizer with several levels of increased alkalinity allows you to build up the amount of alkalinity over time. Since alkaline water has a detoxifying effect, start at lower levels so as not to stress your system as it eliminates toxins, and increase the amount over several months.


Several benefits have been reported for ionized water. Water produced by an ionizer will contain a cloud of tiny bubbles. The hydroxyl ions in ionized water oxygen molecules offer high levels of oxygen, increasing the body's energy and alertness. alkaline water helps balance the body's pH level, which is often acidic due to an unhealthy diet, carbonated beverages, stress, and exposure to environmental toxins. Ionized water will not pull out valuable minerals like calcium, magnesium, and potassium (which carbonated water and water with added chlorine or fluoride may do). 


Ionized water is up to six times more hydrating than conventional water, because the water molecule cluster has been reduced in size and changed in shape to hexagonal, which allows the water cluster to pass through our tissue more easily. Ionized water acts as an antioxidant, effectively neutralizing free radical damage to the body. Unlike regular tap water, ionized water is a natural free radical scavenger, helping to protect cell tissue by converting the free radicals to oxygen.


When used in cooking, ionized water helps bring out the natural taste of foods and juices. Using the alkaline water to reconstitute your juices from concentrates will result in a sweeter taste with less bitterness because the acids will be neutralized. Tea and coffee will taste better, and vegetables will retain a natural texture and colour, with brighter greens and yellows. Rice and rolled oats will be fluffier after being boiled in ionized water.

Many people agree that ionized water is the healthiest water on the planet, the best water they've ever tasted, and up to six times more hydrating than tap water. Investigate the benefits of a water ionizer today.

Weight loss, health & pH Alkaline levels

Why you should be drinking alkaline water!

Why should we be concerned about pH levels? Since most of the body is water-based (50-60%), the pH level has profound effects on all body chemistry, health and disease. All regulatory mechanisms (including breathing, circulation, digestion, hormonal production) serve the purpose of balancing pH, by removing caustic metabolized acid residues from body tissues without damaging living cells.


If the pH deviates too far to the acid side or too far to the alkaline side, cells become poisoned by their own toxic waste and die. Just as acid rain can destroy a forest and alkaline wastes can pollute a lake; an imbalanced pH corrodes all body tissue, slowly eating into the 60,000 miles of veins and arteries like corrosives eating into marble. If left unchecked, an imbalanced pH will interrupt all cellular activities and functions, from the beating of your heart to the neural firing of your brain.

With modern foods, it really is not easy to obtain an alkaline diet, in fact if one followed correct practice; one would be labeled a fanatic or even a nerd! Dr Theodore Baroody ND, Ph.D., who is a foremost authority on acidity of the body, has written a five star book called "Alkalize or Die," which is a must read for those concerned with health and longevity. The newest concept in drinking water today is alkaline water.


Comments & Lecture Notes by Dr. Mona Harrison, MD

Director International Water Council


Cancer tumors cannot live in alkaline water. All cancer patients should be on alkaline water, and you and I should be drinking alkalized water so our bodies won't provide an environment for cancer tumors to live.


Alkaline water is fantastic for insomnia and colic. The brain is 90% water and when it can't maintain that percentage it will pull water from all other parts of the body.


 Salt, caffeine, nicotine, Valium, alcohol and sugar put your body out of balance.


If we don't keep our blood pH at 7.3 or above, death will occur. In fact, death will occur if the blood pH goes below 7.


Urine that has a strong odor indicates an unhealthy body. If the body is balanced there is no ammonia and protein in the urine. An over acidic body causes kidney stones and gall stones.


Cysts are the beginning of tumors, which lead to cancer because minerals are deficient from that part of the body.


Cancer is a long period of mineral deficiency caused by an over acid condition of the body.


Distilled water is neutral, dead water, and has no minerals or charge.


We are aging too fast because we are acidic and dehydrated!



Cause Of Cancer & pH

Herman Aihara, in his book entitled "Acid & Alkaline" states that:

If the condition of our extra cellular fluids, especially the blood, becomes acidic, our physical condition will first manifest tiredness, proneness to catching colds, etc. When these fluids become more acidic, our condition then manifests pains and suffering such as headaches, chest pains, stomach aches, etc. According to Keiichi Morishita in his Hidden Truth of Cancer, If the Blood develops a more acidic condition, then our body inevitably deposits these excess acidic substances in some area of the body such so that the blood will not be able to maintain an alkaline condition which causes these areas such as the cells to become acidic and lowers in oxygen.


As this tendency continues, such areas increase in acidity and some cells die; then these dead cells themselves turn into acids. However, some other cells may adapt in that environment. In other words, instead of dying – as normal cells do in an acid environment – some cells survive by becoming abnormal cells. These abnormal cells are called malignant cells. Malignant cells do not correspond with brain function nor with our own DNS memory code.


Therefore, malignant cells grow indefinitely and without order. This is cancer.

One of the least understood concepts of nutrition is understanding what acid and alkaline balance is. The cells of the human body depend on a balanced acid-alkaline pH. If any fluids are abnormal, digestive enzymes are rendered inactive, food does not digest properly, and allergic reactions can result. Food bound microorganisms such as yeast, bacteria, parasites; molds, viruses, etc. are liberated in the body, which puts stress on the immune system.


The body is largely made up of water, a medium which is biologically useful in allowing nutrients, oxygen and bio-chemicals to be transported from place to place. This water-based medium can have either acid or alkaline properties that are measured by a graduated scale called pH (for potential hydrogen), wherein 1.0 to 6.9 is considered acidic, 7.0 is neutral and 7.1 to 14.0 is alkaline. The lower the pH number, the greater the acidity, and the higher the pH number, the greater the alkalinity. Optimally, we want the fluids in our bodies to have a neutral or 7.0-7.2 pH level. Under 5.3 you can not assimilate vitamins or minerals, it must be above 6.4 for maximum utilization and weight loss. Urine or saliva pH levels should be tested in A.M. prior to eating, drinking, or exercising.
