An interesting revolution has silently been taking place in the fields of health and preventive medicine, through the consumption of alkaline water and an alkaline diet to detox. If you don’t do anything else for your body, do this: drink plenty of pure ionized alkaline water or micro water daily.
“People with more acidic blood are more likely to be ill.” Dr. Hay 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 Hay ascribes most ills to the presence of excess acidity in the body. “Now we depart from health in just the proportion to which we have allowed our alkalis to be dissipated by introduction of acid-forming food in too great amount…It may seem strange to say that all disease is the same thing, no matter what its myriad modes of expression, but it is verily so.” William Howard Hay, M.D
In his book, ‘The pH Miracle’ Dr. Robert Young has this to say about acidity in the body: “Those willing to look again, and with clear eyes, will be rewarded with the secrets to permanent health. We can heal ourselves by changing the environment inside our bodies. Potentially harmful invaders, then, will have nowhere to grow and will become harmless.”
“Here is the simple process of aging. Every living cell within our body creates waste products. The nutrients from our food are delivered to each cell and they burn with oxygen to provide energy for us to live. The burned nutrients are the waste products. The food that is either good or bad for you is determined by the amount and quality of the wastes produced: toxic, acid, alkaline, etc. Most of our cells go through metabolism and old dead cells become waste products. These waste products must be discharged from our body. In fact, our body tries its best to dispose of them through urine and perspiration. That is why urine is acidic and the skin surface is also acidic. The problem is that, due to several reasons, our body cannot get rid of 100% of the waste products it produces.”
The solution to this problem is to drink alkaline water, as this will help flush out the toxins and wastes most effectively.
“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”
“If the blood develops a more acidic condition, then these excess acidic wastes have to be deposited somewhere in the body. If this unhealthy process continues year after year, these areas steadily increase in acidity and their cells begin to die. Other cells in the affected area may survive by becoming abnormal, these are called malignant. Malignant cells cannot respond to brain commands. They undergo a cellular division that is out of control. This is the beginning of cancer.” “Modern medicine treats these malignant cells as if they were bacteria and viruses, it uses chemotherapy, radiation and surgery to treat cancer. Yet none of these treatments will help very much if the environment of the body continues to remain acidic.”
Ed McCabe, who has done so much to promote oxygen therapies, says: “Deprive a cell 60% of its oxygen and it will turn cancerous.” Acidic wastes can be flushed out with drinking adequate quantities of alkaline water, enabling the body cells to remain healthy.
Longevity writer and researcher David Niven Miller unites traditional wisdom, common sense and accurate scientific research. “Increasing your consumption of good quality tap water or filtered water can transform your health and play a central role in the healing. However, alkaline water has profound long-term effects because it alkalizes your body and provides an effective antioxidant.”
The very clean waters produced by reverse osmosis, (which also is used by most bottled companies) is called “hungry” or “death” water. It is so clean that nothing is left in it. The water is charged with positive ions instead of negative ions and is also acidic instead of alkaline. The water you drink is supposed to bring all nutrients to the destination and to flush out any free radicals. So the solution is to drink water, which has a range of minus 250 to minus 800 mV with a PH in the range of 8.5 to 9.5. Probably the best chance of fighting off just about any viruses, bacterial infection, and illnesses- in short be bullet proof to any illness including Cancer, AIDS, Flu, Heart Disease etc is: Keep your body alkaline – not acidic. (Or be prepared for any and all health problems.) The only acidic areas in your body should be the stomach and the urine! The blood and the saliva must be alkaline. Keep your body alkaline, not acidic, is the answer. Having an alkaline body is the ultimate, most underlying answer according to some of the most respected brains on this planet. All ways of living should be geared towards achieving to have an alkaline body!
“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 cold, 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 is a medical doctor in private practice for over a quarter of a century. Her specialty is finding the cause of illness and getting rid of symptoms that are un-diagnosable. Sherry’s written books, scientific papers, and taught advanced courses to physicians learning these techniques. She’s lectured in 6 countries and over 50 US cities; she has been interviewed on dozens of television shows, and radio programs as well as having written numerous magazine articles. “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 disease.”
“After years of very positive continuous clinical experiment 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 the coming years….My suggestion is to drink restructured alkaline water whenever possible.”
The Hunza Valley located in northern Pakistan is the home of the longest lived people on the planet. The high mountain valley is surrounded by the Himalayan Mountains, and the people of Hunza are uniquely healthy and free of disease. Many studies have been done and it is believed that their simple healthy diet and the glacial, living water is their secret to health and long life. Hunza drink directly from glacial streams in the high Himalayas. It is fresh, invigorating, life enhancing, free radical scavenging and delicious. Hunza water is an example of perfect natural water.
Dr. Henri Coanda, the Romanian father of fluid dynamics and a Nobel Prize winner at 78 yrs old, spent six decades studying the Hunza water trying to determine what it was in this water that caused such beneficial effects for the body. He discovered that it had a different viscosity and surface tension. Dr. Patrick Flanagan and others continued the research. They found Hunza water had a high alkaline pH and an extraordinary amount of active hydrogen (hydrogen with an extra electron), with a negative Redox Potential and a high colloidal mineral content.
Many years were spent in trying to replicate this water, and for the last forty years, alkaline water is being used extensively in Japan and Korea.
“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 so that the blood will not be able to maintain an alkaline condition. This causes the cells in the body to become acidic and have lowered oxygen.”
Dr. Kurzweil talks about alkaline and ionized water. “There are more benefits to alkaline water than simply the alkalinity or pH. The most important feature of alkaline water produced by a water Alkalizer is its negative oxidation reduction potential (-ORP). Water with a high negative ORP is of particular value in its ability to neutralize oxygen free radicals ORP can also be directly tested using an ORP sensor and meter. We have conducted these experiments as well. We found that water coming directly from the tap had an ORP of +290mV, while the water coming out of the water Alkalizer had a negative ORP. The more negative the ORP of a substance (that is, the higher it’s negative ORP), the more likely it is to engage in chemical reactions that donate electrons. These electrons are immediately available to engage in reactions that neutralize positively charged free radicals. Consuming the right type of water is vital to detoxifying the body’s acidic waste products and is one of the most powerful health treatments available. We recommended that you drink 8-10 glasses per day of this alkaline water. It is one of the simplest and most powerful things that you can do to combat a wide range of disease processes. It is interesting to note that in Japan, professional sports teams drink alkaline water to improve their performance.”
“Any time you begin to adjust your water and salt intake, asthma will go away”
“…water is the better pain medication, asthma medication and the best anti-histamine medication there is…” .
“Chronic, unintentional dehydration is the origin of most pain and degenerative diseases in the human body. The body manifests dehydration in as many ways as we, in medicine, have invented diseases. Dry mouth is not a sign of dehydration and waiting to get thirsty is wrong. Thirst should be prevented. When the body doesn’t receive water and you have pain that is a sign of dehydration. The mouth is not dry. Pain in the body is a crisis call of the body for water. If you have heartburn, your body is telling you it’s short of water in your gastrointestinal track. You’ve had a heavy meal, there wasn’t enough water to liquefy and break down the food and get it absorbed and it gives you pain. You didn’t have a dry mouth because you swallowed all the food, but nonetheless, since you didn’t have enough water in the body, it manifested dehydration by producing heartburn. Heartburn can be cured with water. I use the word “cured” because it is a sign of dehydration. When you cure dehydration, the disease will go.”
“The best thing is to drink water before food. Drink water half an hour before food if you’re a heartburn sufferer. That is the best time because that water will go into the stomach and then into the intestines and get absorbed. Then that water is re-secreted entirely in the stomach, simultaneously priming the mucus membrane to receive food. And, water is in the stomach to be used for liquefaction of food – to break it, to prepare the food into smaller particles so they can be absorbed. That is what water does. If you don’t drink water beforehand, the body doesn’t have enough water that it can liberate for other activity. Any water that is in your body is already engaged in an activity. You need fresh water for fresh activity. If you’re introducing solid food, this is a fresh activity. You need fresh water to dissolve it and break it down.”
“Basically, the major pains of the body, such as, heartburn, rheumatoid joint pain, back pain, colitis pain, migraine headaches, fibromyalgia pain, even angina pain are signs of dehydration in the human body. Where you have pain, it’s showing that that area is dehydrated. The mechanism is very simple. Toxic chemical waste builds up when you don’t drink enough water. If there is not enough water to wash away the chemical toxic waste from an area that is still active metabolizing, then toxic waste builds up. It is just like the garbage collector not collecting the garbage that you are still creating and putting it in front of the house to be cleared away. When that garbage doesn’t get cleared away, in time it will become stagnant and it will produce stench in your environment. It is exactly the same in the environment of the cells in the body. When there is activity, there is a build-up of toxic waste. If that waste is not cleared up, the environment becomes pungent. It will become acidic and this acidic toxic environment is sensed by the nerve endings in the area. The signal is sent to the brain and the brain registers it with our conscious mind in the form of pain. Pain means build up of toxic waste where you have the pain. All you need to do is to wash that toxic waste by drinking more water, letting it circulate to the area, clean the area, wash the toxic waste, bring it out into the circulation and then pass it out through the kidneys or neutralize it in the liver or some of the gases could be passed through the lungs. That’s what pain means. There are a 110 million Americans who have pain, not knowing that they didn’t drink enough water to wash the toxic waste out of their body.”
“In allergies, because the body is short of water and histamine is acting in drought management, the immune system is shut down and antibodies are not produced. Antibodies are soldiers that defend the frontiers of the body. Lung tissue is a frontier with an external environment – the nose and the eyes. If offending pollen, which is a protein, hits these tissues, it must enter into the system. It could cause damage. Normally, antibody soldiers would be there to neutralize these offending pollens, but in dehydration antibody soldiers are not active. They are not there. The only alternative is to wash these particles away. That’s why when you get an allergic reaction, your eyes begin to water and it washes the pollen out of your eyes. Your nose will begin to water, it washes the pollen out of your nose and will not allow it to go to the lung tissue. If you hydrate the body well, antibody soldiers will be made and you will not be allergic.”
“The brain is 85 percent water and it lives in a salty lake. It is encased in a salty lake. Cerebral spinal fluid is a very salty environment and in order to make it salty, salt is pumped into this environment constantly. Salt is responsible for taking acid out of the brain cells. There are nine trillion brain and nerve cells that constantly chatter to one another. They use up energy and there is toxic waste. There is acidity involved in the toxic waste. Salt goes into the cell and pushes the acid out. And then this acid is taken out of the system by a mechanism of pumping systems and taken to the kidneys and flushed out. If we are short of salt and the toxic waste builds up in the cell environment of the brain, then hydrogen iron acidity, which lowers the pH making it more acidic, will eat away into the brain cell mechanism.”
“Diabetes is another sign of dehydration. The brain needs water, 85 percent water and it needs salt. If your body is short of water and is low in salt, the body has to resort to make the blood a little more sweet or sugar it for asthmatic purposes and also to shut down secretion of insulin. Once insulin is secreted, it opens up the gates into all the cells and sugar will rush in, other elements will rush in and water will rush in. Insulin is the key to the gates for intake of elements into the cells of the body.”
“Osteoporosis is another complication of dehydration. Now let me explain. Water is the main source of energy for all physiological functions. As we grow older, we lose our perception of thirst and we under-hydrate our body and we constantly are waiting for our mouth to tell us that we are thirsty, which is wrong. If you don’t want osteoporosis, drink water, take salt, take some minerals. The body will retain calcium from the food you are taking. But without water, no supplement will work. If you are taking calcium, make sure that you drink water because when you drink water you will create energy, high heat of activation at the cell membrane. And calcium has got the property of bonding to another calcium when there is heat. Calcium is a means of converting heat into usable energy.”
