What Do Doctors Say About Ionized Alkaline Water?

Dr. Otto Warburg

All normal cells have an absolute requirement for oxygen, but cancer cells can live without oxygen – a rule without exception.
Cancerous tissues are acidic, whereas healthy tissues are alkaline.

Acid wastes build up in the body in the form of cholesterol, gallstones, kidney stones, arterial plaque, urates, phosphates and sulfates. These acidic waste products are the direct cause of premature aging and the onset of chronic disease.
I believe that the best water is water that is alkaline (reduced) and purified using a small device known as a water ionizer.

If the world has accepted antioxidants to slow down the aging process, it should readily agree to the uses of ionized alkaline water as an anti-aging agent. Their roles are closely linked and intertwined such that a lasting anti-aging program is incomplete without addressing both free radicals and organic acid wastes.

Alkaline balance is very important for bone health. We evolved in an alkaline ocean environment, and even today our body’s internal environment remains alkaline, with a pH just above 7.0. Our enzymatic, immunologic, and repair mechanisms all function their best in an alkaline environment. Despite this, our biochemical functioning, the metabolism of food, and many other fundamental life processes, all produce a great deal of acid.

On Overacidity
Many people in North America live with mildly acidic internal pH, known as chronic mild acidosis. When the body is chronically over-acidic, the balancing mechanisms force the body to borrow minerals – calcium, sodium, potassium and magnesium – from the internal organs and bones so acids can be buffered or neutralized and removed from the body. Over time this process contributes to chronic disease. Chronic over-acidity has been called “the silent killer.

On Oxidation
More than three years of testing and research have led me to the discovery that drinking reduced alkaline water is the most effective tool for quickly, easily and economically changing the rate of oxidation on cells that I have ever encountered. As the cell walls of our body become oxidized, they become sticky and this prevents hydration of the body as well as nutrient absorption and cell waste to be expelled. The -ORP (Ed: Reduction Potential of the water) removes oxidation from the cell wall and allows for better hydration, and cell metabolism and overall cell health.

Dr. Hayashi states that bad diets such as meat and potatoes, fried foods, soft drinks colas, and sugars build up acidic salts in the body. Often these deposits, by having to be stored away from the blood flow, can remain in the body for decades. He recommends the consumption of ionized alkaline water, which will slowly and gently wash these salts away.
Chlorinated tap water is polluted with non-biological chemicals and negative energy imprints. It is also devoid of bio-energy and so may be regarded as being badly polluted as well as ‘dead’. Alkaline living water is regarded by a growing number of health care professionals as the best water to drink and is listed as a medical device in Japan for the treatment of degenerative diseases.

Water Ionization could be one of the most important health breakthroughs in our era.
Japanese and some American hospital research have 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.

“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.
The benefits of the alkaline water created through electrolysis far exceed just its ability to gently raise the pH of the cells and tissues of the body and to neutralize acids. Because the alkaline water has gained a significant number of free electrons through the electrolysis process, it is able to donate these electrons to active oxygen free radicals in the body, thereby becoming a super antioxidant. By donating its excess free electrons, alkaline water is able to block the oxidation of normal tissue by free oxygen radicals.

Dr. Arthur Guyton

The cells of a healthy body are alkaline while the cells of a diseased body are below a pH of 7.0. The more acidic the cell, the sicker we become. If the body cannot alkalize the cells they will become acidic and thus, disease sets in. Most cells will die in the 3.5 pH range. Our bodies produce acid as a by-product of normal metabolism. Since our bodies do not manufacture alkalinity, we must supply the alkalinity from an outside source to keep us from becoming acidic and dying.

If the blood develops a more acidic condition, then the 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 do not respond to brain commands. They undergo a cellular division that is out of control. This is called cancer. Modern medicine in America treats these malignant cells as if they were bacteria or viruses. It uses chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery to treat cancer. Yet none of these treatments will help very much, if after all of that, the acidic environment remains. Drinking water that has a high alkaline pH, because of its de-acidifying effect, will help in preventing cancer. In Asia, alkaline water is regularly served to patients, and is considered a regular part of treatment.

In my opinion, redox potential is more important than pH. For example, the average pH of blood is 7.4 and acidosis or alkalosis are defined according to deviation within the range of 7.4 + -0.05. But nothing has been discussed about ORP, or oxidation-reduction potential.
It has long been established that reactive oxygen species (ROS) [free radicals that contain the oxygen atom] cause many types of damage to biomolecules and cellular structures, that, in turn result in the development of a variety of pathologic states such as diabetes, cancer and aging. Reduced water is defined as anti-oxidative water produced by reduction of water. Electrolyzed reduced water (ERW) has been demonstrated to be hydrogen-rich water and can scavenge ROS in vitro (Shirahata et al., 1997).

The fluids in the cells of most people’s bodies are overly acidic. This can cause a lot of problems. It prevents your body from neutralizing toxins, and leaves you more susceptible to the cell-damaging free radical oxidation that leads to cancer and other diseases.
Just about every condition I can think of, from arthritis to diabetes to cancer, is associated with acidity. It is no coincidence that many of our modern habits such as alcohol consumption, smoking, eating sugar, and stress, all tend to increase acidity. The only parts of our body that are supposed to be acidic are the contents of the stomach, the skin, and perspiration. Virtually everything else is supposed to be at least slightly alkaline.

You can use electrical means to create water with strong reduction capability. Purification devices exist that ionize and create this type of water through electrolysis … when electrolysis occurs, active hydrogen is also produced, serving to remove excess free radicals from the body. The result is what I call “good water,” pure, clean alkaline water with plenty of minerals. Good water means water with strong reduction power that has not been polluted with chemical substances. In order to drink plenty of good water every day, even using it for cooking, I believe it is necessary to buy and use a purifier that has strong reduction power.
It is widely recognized in the medical profession that a healthy and clean colon is one of the most important precursors to good health and that the great majority of body ailments and diseases originate in an acidic and dirty colon. Water is essential for your health. Drinking “good water;” especially hard water which has much calcium and magnesium keeps your body at an optimal alkaline pH.

On water
Many women avoid drinking water for fear of bloating, a complete misconception.The great majority of us are in a constant state of dehydration–drinking water only when we experience thirst, which is too little too late.
All biochemical reactions take place in the presence of water. If we are even just mildly dehydrated, metabolism drops by three percent, resulting in a one pound weight gain every six months. It is essential to drink 8-10 glasses of water a day. If you have any doubts about the effect of water intake on our skin, just put a grape and a raisin side by side.
The fountain of youth did not spew forth diet soda and OJ–it’s always been good old H2O.

On Dehydration
I am a researcher. I have researched dehydration for the past 20 years. When I discovered that the solution to most of the disease conditions of our society is not a moneymaker, I decided to take my information to the public. My research revealed that unintentional dehydration produces stress, chronic pains and many degenerative diseases. Dry mouth is not the only sign of dehydration and waiting to get thirsty is wrong. Medicine has based its understanding that it is solid matter in the body that regulates all functions of the body. I have explained scientifically at the molecular level that it is water that regulates all functions of the body including functions of solid matter. 75% of our bodies are composed of water. The brain is 85% water. It is water that energizes and activates the solid matter. If you don’t take enough water, some functions of the body will suffer. Dehydration produces system disturbances. When I use the word water cure, I am referring to curing dehydration with water.

On Ionized Alkaline Water
When alkaline ionized water was used with Alzheimer’s patients, just by drinking a gallon a day, their senility problem subsided.
Ionized water is great for Attention Deficit Disorder as this condition is [caused by] too much rhodium and iridium in the brain. Ionized water calms these types of children.
Alkaline ionized water is the frequency of the pineal gland and thus affects all other glands below the pineal gland. That is why the water can lower blood pressure and blood sugar, shrink an enlarged prostrate, stimulate sex drive, improve vision, improve MS and Parkinson’s Disease, just to name a few. Alkaline ionized water electrolysis converts the inorganic minerals present in the water to organic minerals, just like plant juice.
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 hydrogen ion is positively charged, [An ionizer], changes the hydrogen ion into a negative charge. The liver loves negative hydrogen ions. That is why kidney and liver problems can be helped with alkaline ionized water. Alkaline ionized water ties up free radicals from attacking healthy cells. Alkaline ionized water is the most powerful liquid antioxidant that can rebuild the immune system and is revolutionizing the health industry. Most of our health problems today are caused by an over-acid condition of the body.

I have had countless numbers of patients with painful osteoarthritis on many different medications for arthritis. Many have been pain free within a couple of months after adjusting their urine pH to 7.0 to 7.5. Which is accomplished by consuming adequate amounts of alkaline water and alkaline foods. As a result, many are able to go off of their medications.
Hexagonal, alkaline water is especially effective in treating those with chronic disease.
Your body thrives in an alkaline environment since it is able to detoxify more efficiently than in an acidic environment. In an alkaline environment your tissues get rid of impurities more efficiently. When cancer patients come into my office to begin nutritional treatment, their bodies are almost always very acidic and toxic. My first task is to get their tissues alkalinized with alkaline water.
I have recommended alkaline hexagonal water to even my youngest patients. In 2005 a ten-year old girl and her parents came to my office in South Carolina. The girl had crippling juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and weighed only fifty-two pounds. Her hands were swollen like mitts, and her knees were swollen as large as softballs. I put her on hexagonal, alkaline water, one to two quarts a day. A week and a half later she was pain free, and her swelling was significantly diminished. When she arrived she was wheelchair bound, but she was actually able to walk without pain after only a week and a half of drinking hexagonal, alkaline water. Her parents were ecstatic. We raised the pH of her tissues. After a month, her hands were almost normal size.

Dr. Howard Hay (1930)

People with more acidic blood were more likely to be ill. A pH range of 7.4 to 7.5 is 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.
All disease is caused by auto-toxification (self-poisoning) due to acid accumulation in the body.
Now we depart from health in just the proportion to which we have allowed our alkalies 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.
It was said earlier that all we can do for disease is to stop creating this background of acid end-products of digestion and metabolism, and this is true, for if disease comes always and only from this acid collection, then it must be evident to anyone that the cure lies in the discontinuance of this accumulation.
Pneumonia, erysipelas, typhoid fever, influenza, acute arthritis, colitis, hay fever, all subside when the body is fairly detoxicated and the diet so corrected as to stop this excessive formation of the acid end-products, simply because each was expressing the end-point of tolerance of toxins, and each was the means by which the body sought to unload this unwanted mass.
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.

I have administered over 5000 gallons of this water for about every health situation imaginable. I feel that restructured alkaline water can benefit everyone.
Acid wastes literally attack the joints, tissues, muscles, organs and glands causing minor to major dysfunction.
The newest technology in drinking water today is electronically restructured alkaline water. A special unit yields alkaline water and lowers the millivoltage. The water is reconfigured into a lighter, simpler form that is definitely more absorbable in the body.
After years of very positive continuous clinical experiments 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.
Too much acidity in the body is like having too little oil in the car. It just grinds to a halt one lazy Sunday afternoon. There you are – stuck. The body does the same thing.
Restructured water alkalizes by displacing acids and replacing alkalines. The other health benefit of restructured water is the imparted frequencies, which are not present in distilled water. These frequencies assist in acid displacement toward the elimination channels.
Any stressor that the mind or body interprets and internalizes as too much to deal with, leaves an acid residue. Even a mild stressor can cause a partial or total acid-forming reaction. The countless names attached to illness do not really mater. What does matter is that they all come from the same root cause: too much tissue acid waste in the body.

I think drinking alkaline water is the most important thing a person can do for their health.
This [alkalizing] program contains a whole new way of looking at diet and nutrition. When followed, it leads to a healthy, lean, trim body and an enhanced level of wellness, energy and mental clarity most people have not experienced previously.
Based on years of research and observation, we have concluded that over acidification of the body is the underlying cause of all disease. Because many people consume a diet primarily comprised of acid forming foods, (i.e. sugars, meat, dairy, yeast breads, coffee, alcohol, starches, etc.) rather than whole plant foods, they are frequently sick and tired.

On toxins
All the detoxification pathways in the body (liver-colon, kidney-bladder, skin-sweat, lung-breath, and lymphatic system) require water. When water is not supplied in abundance, wastes build up in the fluid that surrounds each cell and all the detoxification pathways become sluggish. However, the body is ingenious. It always adapts. Under the stress of dehydration your body will find places to store toxins where they will not immediately interfere with critical life processes. Toxins and wastes can end up in fatty tissue, in joints, and as deposits in arteries. In the short term, life is preserved, but the long term consequences are obvious.

As far as my practice goes, I recommend Ionized Water to everyone.
The first thing that I noticed was how pure and satisfying the water was and how quickly it absorbed into the system. I noticed that my cravings went down and I’ve lost 20 lbs. and kept it off.
I’ve been drinking ionized water about a year now and I want to share the changes I noticed in my own household. I have lost 20 lbs. and kept it off and the only thing that I did different was drink the water. For many years I have suffered from allergies both in spring and fall and this past year I didn’t have a single flair-up. Again, the only thing that I have been doing different is drink the water.

On Alkaline Ionized Water
Drinking alkaline water helps reduce the burden on the limited alkaline buffers which are needed for the body’s natural detoxification.
Most people are already too acidic from eating excess meat, simple carbohydrates, and sugar. Alkalinizing water is a very effective step to bring this into balance.
Another benefit of drinking alkaline water is that it assists in the absorption of minerals. We know that if the body is not absorbing enough minerals, it will rob minerals from the body’s mineral reserves, chiefly calcium from the bones.

Dr. Nancy McClellan

Alkaline Water, along with all of its other benefits, neutralizes free radicals in a very effective manner.
An important features of alkaline water is the ORP, that is the oxidation reduction potential and the power the way in which the water is absorbed into your body and how it neutralizes free radicals.
If most people realized that free radicals attack: Nerve tissue, Brain tissue 
and Cell walls, they might take ORP a little more seriously. Alkaline water, along with all of its other benefits, neutralizes free radicals in a very effective manner.
The most important things we can do is to drink alkaline due to its ability to flush out the part of your body called the ground substance, or the matrix, which all of your cells sit in. It’s where everything happens in your body. The only thing that I have found that cleanses the ground substance is alkaline water, so I consider alkaline ionized water one of the most important things a person can do for themselves and their family’s health.
