119 It would be hard to improve the healthfulness or cleaning power of water without adding any chemicals or supplements to it. But companies are claiming to do just that by "ionizing" water. Enagic USA's Kangen Water Companies are selling machines that put drinking water through an "ionization" process. According to the companies, the process, also called "electrolysis," is accomplished using negatively and positively charged electrodes. In the process, water atoms give electrons to the electrodes or receive them, according to a graphic on Chanson Water USA Inc.'s website. The result is a chemical reaction that results in water becoming more acid or alkaline. Tap water typically has a pH of around 7, or neutral; alkaline water has a pH of more than 7; acidic water, less than 7. Companies say alkaline water has a variety of benefits, ranging from giving you energy to counteracting unhealthy effects of acidic foods you eat.
Some scientists, however, say there aren't any good studies supporting the ionized-water companies' marketing claims. Alkaline Water Machines, long sold internationally, have been generating increased interest in the U.S. during the past couple of years, says Pauli Undesser, director of regulatory and technical affairs at the Water Quality Association, a nonprofit trade group for the water-treatment industry. Earth Trade Water Inc., Carlsbad, Calif., posts testimonials from professional athletes who say its ionized alkaline water boosts their performances by providing better hydration and aiding "energy" and "focus." A Laguna Hills, Calif., unit of Chanson Taiwan LLC, says on its website that its ionized water has smaller clusters of water molecules than ordinary water and these "microclusters" are better able to "penetrate into more places in the body." In a marketing brochure, Enagic USA Inc., a Los Angeles unit of Japan's Enagic Co., says its "Healthy Kangen Water"—which has a pH of 8.5 to 9.5—"helps your body balance the acidic effects" of eating foods such as meat and eggs. Enagic's Leveluk SD501 model, which sells for $3,980, uses seven electrodes. Enagic also says Kangen water tastes better with "superior mouth-feel." In an informal blind taste test at a local spa offering Kangen water, I found the Kangen water tasted soft and velvety, but with a mineral aftertaste, compared with ordinary tap water. The machines, which typically range from $1,000 to $6,000, are generally attached to a faucet, but some models go under the sink. The alkaline water, which the companies say is ideal for drinking and cooking, comes out of one of the machines' spigots, while acid water, which can be used for cleaning, comes out of another. The degree of alkalinity is often adjustable. The machines have a built-in filter, which filters impurities just like any other water filter.
On this next Monday 11 I'm going to have a colonoscopy to confirm that I have colon cancer (let's hope not), for all the symtomps that I had, and that I have already told you, in my personal message to you. Either way, I started to juice carrots like almost two weeks, and every time I drink them I feel SO MUCH BETTER, and I don't even have diarrhea, neither my bowel sounds much, like when I wasn't drinking it. The Alkaline Water Machine Helped too. Even my seeing has improve, because I was using a 0.25 glasses for tired eyes, and since I'm drinking carrot juice, I don't feel like I need those anymore. That just make me think along with your testimony, and all the information on this page, that doctors ususally don't recommend or prescibed fruits or vegetables to help people's diseases or little troubles, like the one I had with my tired eyes. My ophthalmologist straightly prescribed me multivitamin drops for my eyes, instead of recommending me to eat or drink carrots, that just have help me a lot more than his drops.
Latest update. So after we had the Pet Scan which showed no signs of cancer and we told the surgeon we would just wiat observe and not proceed with any treatment. He suggested that Nigel undergo a colonoscopy so he can see whats left in the rectum. As I sat with Nigel in the recovery room - he walked in and said - 'this is a miracle' - the photo of the rectum is so clear and in his words he could not find anything. We just stopped by a cafe and had guess what ?? "Carrot Juice " - God is great!! Through Christ all things are possible!. 317
