Water is a big part of our body – water and electricity. Our body is made up of cells that communicate and ‘live’ through electrical and chemical charges (synapses.)* Dr Robert Becker of The Body Electric* wrote ‘Electricity is vital to life.’ And of course, we all know that electricity needs water to exist. So if our body, and our planet, are intrinsically dependent on water, we should value this resource as it affects our body, health and existence.
So let’s talk about the water you put in your body
We are still purchasing bottled water to drink both at home and away from home. Although the plastic bottles of water with BPA in them are known to be hazardous to your health, (FDA declared BPA safe in 2008, but in 2010 modified their position, then 2012 banned the chemical in baby bottles) it turns out the BPA-free plastics are just as bad or worse than the BPA bottles.* Currently, the ‘safest bottle’ is a glass bottle wrapped in a silicone sleeve for protection.* The water that we purchase in bottled waters claim to be ‘filtered’ or ‘natural’ but when tested for their affects on your body in relation to ph* levels and orp*, they fall below tap water.
Tap water, as we know, is not perfect, and contains chlorine as well as other contaminants. Many people purchase and install water filters in their kitchens in an attempt to better the water that they consume. My latest research has shown that Ionized water machines are providing health benefits that other types of water do not. The theory (behind the testimonials) is that through the process of electrolysis, water is ionized to produce ionized alkaline water. Ionization breaks up the molecule clusters, making it easier for the water to penetrate your cells. ‘The other way an ionizer alters water is to TURN REGULAR WATER INTO A POWERFUL ANTIOXIDANT, measured as ORP* (Oxidation Reduction Potential.)’ This is turning your water into a source of healing. The better ionizer machines will also have two carbon filters that remove the chlorine but retain the minerals.
The other crazy information that I witnessed about ionized water is the cleaning aspect. The dramatic demonstration shows two glasses of cherry tomatoes, one being ‘washed’ in tap water and the second being ‘washed’ in 11.5 ph ionized alkaline water. Apparently oil based pesticides replaced water based pesticides which were too easily removed with rainwater. SO, when you ‘wash’ your fruits and vegetables in tap water, the pesticides are not removed. When soaked in 11.5 ph ionized alkaline water the water turns a sickly yellow color. This is what we are putting in our body! I spoke to a researcher at the University of Washington who is studying the effects of pesticides in people and besides the commonly known facts of cancer, reproductive problems, and developmental disorders, there is a proven decrease in cognitive abilities. OUCH! Fruits and vegetables that have pesticides on them are HARMFUL to your HEALTH.
The apparent benefit of ionized water machines are twofold, one creating healing/healthy/antioxidant water for you to drink and the second to successfully remove the poisons that are in our ‘fresh’ vegetables and fruits. I cannot think of a more important investment in your health than the investment of an ionized water machine. There are many testimonials about the healing aspects of certain waters, some throughout the centuries. Scientists are now discovering that the difference in the waters are in the ORP levels. People are being healed with ionized water, this is something you need to look at.
