Alkaline Ionized Water

Alkaline/ Ionized Water is "Nature's Antioxidant"

These startling statistics make perfect sense since over two thirds of our body is water:

Alkaline, ionized water acts as a natural, powerful antioxidant. Because approximately 70% of your bodyweight consists of water, it is important to look at what type of water will benefit you the most.

Some researchers and practitioners believe that ACIDOSIS is the basic foundation of all disease. We need to understand the simple process of alkalizing our body and the important role a properly alkalized body can help play in restoring and maintaining our overall health. Our glands and organs function properly in exact proportion to the amount of alkaline and acid levels in our system.

1. Can ionized water assist me to alkalize my body?

We are not in a position to make therapeutic claims. We can only refer you to the list of people who have reported health changes to us, or to medical professionals who recommend our produces. For example, Dr Theodore Baroody, author of Alkalize or Die, states that he has recommended thousands of people over a long period of time and continues to do so. So do countless more clinics and medical practices in Japan where Water Alkalizers are sold over the counter in local electrical stores.

In the USA, Alkaline Water is recommended by such well known Health Professionals as Dr. Robert Young, author of The pH Miracle and Sang Whang, author of Reverse Aging.

2. Why can't I just drink water?

You certainly can, but if you're like us, you have never really got into the water habit because the water felt too much like a lead balloon. Ionized water from water ionizers is light water. It has a smaller molecular cluster and you can drink it throughout the day.

You CAN just drink water and you will harvest some of the benefits we speak of, but it still can't penetrate your cells like alkaline, ionized water can. This is why ionized water with its bounty of negative oxygen ions is able to help rid you of acid wastes in your cells. It can go where ordinary water cannot, and it has the ammunition to help neutralize free radicals, the cause of many problems. This is also the fundamental difference between water ionizers and so called bottled anti-aging water. This water is 'live'.

3. Why are some waters healthier than others?

People located in the Hunza Districts of Pakistan, Shin-Chan areas of China, the Caucasus in Azerbaijan, and in the Andes Mountains live longer with less health problems. Researchers believe that these waters are very pure and have a negative redox potential caused by either intimate contact with certain native volcanic materials/minerals or by cascading over certain igneous rocks. It is believed that Ionways water ionizers are able to produce a very similar effect using advanced technology.

4. Can't our bodies heal itself naturally?

We still come across a few practitioners who believe in the old paradigm that somehow the body has a miraculous ability to balance its own pH and heal itself. Certainly, in times when we ate more alkaline food and didn't stress the way we do today, this might have been so.

However a study of almost 1,000 Americans by Dr Linda Frassetto of the University of California in 1999 has turned this old idea on its head. She found the opposite; that we are now storing acid in our body fat because we have become incapable of eliminating the increased tide of acid wastes that we are now assailed with. This is a change never before seen in our evolutionary history, and must be seen in the context of an unmanageable acid tide within.

5. What is acidosis?

Every living cell within our body creates acidic 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. Whether you eat the best of foods or the worst, all foods generate acidic waste products. Foods, when classified as good or bad, are based on the amount and quality of the waste products they produce. Most of our cells go through metabolism and these old dead cells become waste products.

Our body will discharge this waste through urine, feces and perspiration. Basically, all waste products are acidic and that is the reason our skin and urine often has a low pH level. The real problem is that our body does not get rid of 100% of the waste it produces. Our life style, such as lack of rest, types of foods we eat and our environment helps produce these waste products, but does not help us eliminate them. In the vast majority of Westerners, diets heavy in meat, fried foods, carbohydrates, soft drinks, and sweets build up acid salts in the body, as does stress and exposure to environmental pollutants.

What happens to those non-disposed acid wastes? As they build up within our body, these waste products become solid wastes, such as cholesterol, fatty acid, kidney stones, etc. This accumulation of non-disposed acidic wastes is called acidosis. This condition accelerates the degeneration of cells, tissues, and the body as a whole. It accelerates the aging process. Drinking alkaline water makes it easier for the body to dispose of acid wastes. Just as the accumulation of wastes accelerates the aging process, the reduction of acid wastes retards the aging process and perhaps - according to Sang Whang -- even reverses it. Alkaline water is not a medicine to treat or cure any diseases but if consumed regularly, alkaline water can reduces acid waste, allowing for a natural health improvement.

6. How do I know if I have acidosis or an acid-overloaded system?

Most Westerners do. The pace of life, and the concentration of acid-producing items in our diet means that the vast majority of people are overloaded.

You can use litmus (or pH) paper to test your urine or saliva and to give you some idea of your acidity. This is not foolproof, however, because your body is always attempting to balance your acid and alkaline levels and could well be getting rid of a load of acid at the time of the test. For more accurate results it is recommended to test at different times of the day over time.

Eating processed foods, chemicals, lack of gentle exercise and stress all create an acid buildup. There are a number of good books on how to become healthy on an alkaline diet. They also come with lists of acid and alkaline-producing foods.

7. Is it OK for children to drink ionized water?

Absolutely - even nursing infants. And since children have usually not accumulated toxins in their bodies, they experience no detoxification symptoms. (A few adults might).

Back to FAQs || Back to Top

8. I know what I should eat and drink to be healthy, but I can't seem to keep to a consistent program. How will an ionizing filter help me?

Ionized, microclustered alkaline water is perfect for people like you. You only need to drink it to enjoy its many health benefits. Each Ionizer has a number of graduated settings of ionization to meet anyone's needs.

Back to FAQs || Back to Top

9. Are there any cautions about drinking alkaline ionized water?

You should start slowly. Set the controls to the lowest alkaline level. Assuming the water agrees with you, increase the amount you drink and the level of ionization intensity. High levels of alkalinity -- up to 9.5-10.0 -- are best for drinking water; the highest levels can be used for cooking.

In a few individuals, the detoxification effects from drinking alkaline ionized water can cause headaches and diarrhea for a short time. And for some older people, ionized water can tend, at first, to open the bowels. This is why a slow start is advised. Use the "Purified Water" setting for taking any medications that your doctor advises not to be taken with alkaline water. Do not drink the acid water. Having said all of the above, be aware that millions of Japanese have been drinking alkaline ionized water daily over the last 30 years. The water ionizer has been approved as a Household Medical Instrument by the government of Japan. In addition, test results on safety by the Welfare Ministry in Japan reveal no harmful influences on the body.

10. I am told that you claim a lemon will help to alkalize your body, but other people say the opposite. What's the truth?

This is all about a basic misconception most people have about food and its effect on the body.

It is true that if you plunge a pH meter into a lemon it will read as acid. But once you have consumed (burnt up/converted to energy/metabolized) a lemon, what is left is alkaline. It is what is left of all of our foods that determines our acid/alkaline balance, not the pH of the food we are about to consume. This is known as the 'ash' of a food.

After food has been completely burned up and converted to energy, the leftover minerals are what makes up our mineral content and therefore our pH or acid/alkaline balance. Unfortunately many other factors affect our pH balance, including pollution, stress and our own body's metabolic wastes.

We are not "what we eat". We are what is left over after we eat.

11. Why should I remove chlorine from my drinking and bathing water?

Dr. Zoltan Rona, M.D. M.Sc. answers:

"Most people never give (the dangers of chlorine) a thought. After all, our elected public officials keep assuring us that chlorinated city tap water is completely safe for human consumption. Numerous scientific studies report that chlorinated tap water is a skin irritant and can be associated with rashes like eczema.

"Chlorinated water contains chemical compounds called trihalomethanes which are carcinogens resulting from the combination of chlorine with compounds in water. These chemicals, also known as organochlorides, do not degrade very well and are generally stored in the fatty tissues of the body (breast, other fatty areas, mother's milk, blood and semen). Organochlorides can cause mutations by altering DNA, suppress immune system function and interfere with the natural controls of cell growth.

"Chlorine has been documented to aggravate asthma. Several studies also link chlorine and chlorinated by-products to a greater incidence of bladder, breast and bowel cancer as well as malignant melanoma. One study even links the use of chlorinated tap water to congenital cardiac anomalies.

"Anything you can do to filter tap and shower water that eliminates or minimizes chlorine would certainly be helpful and possibly curative for some immune system problems. The use of at source water filtration devices is increasingly popular and affordable. Discuss their use with your health care practitioner".

(Dr. Zoltan P. Rona is author of The Joy of Health and Return to the Joy of Health and past president of the Canadian Holistic Medical Association.)

12. What is a pH saliva test?

In a healthy state, our saliva should be alkaline. However, a large majority of North Americans and Europeans are in an acid condition, and this can be demonstrated. If you're curious as to whether you're acidic, ask for our free pH saliva test. In this simple test, special pH papers are used to measure the acidity/alkalinity of saliva under carefully controlled conditions. This can give you a relative, general picture.

Back to FAQs || Back to Top

13. I have read elsewhere that I should have slightly acid to neutral body tissue.

It's not so simple.

Different parts of the body need different pH levels. At a cellular level, there are two factors working together to keep our energy up. The interior of each cell is alkaline. The Mitochondria - the power producer of the body, swims in an alkaline sea inside the cell's membrane. Outside, the interstitial (between cells) fluid is saline, alkaline and mineralized. This is the fluid that transports nutrition to the cells. The cell allows it in after checking it with its many receptor antennae that swim in the alkaline fluid. Once inside, the mitochondria consumes it and converts it to energy electrical energy. Here's where the minor miracle of life repeats itself billions of times a day. Through the tiny antennae that protrude into the interstitial fluid, and via the actual cell membrane, electrical energy is transmitted. This process permits the cell to pass the energy as electricity from positive to negative, just like a car or household wire passes power! Consider for a moment the effect of poor conductivity. (acid to alkaline) Energy flow would be greatly reduced.

So it's incredibly important for the interstitial fluid to be correctly alkaline because if it's not, the power can't flow, the tiny antennae that detect germs etc can't work properly, and we lose energy.

It's also important to realize that we are never just acid or alkaline. We change by the hour, even the minute, and our body is a marvel of design and engineering as it shunts around alkaline minerals to neutralize excess acids within minutes of them entering the body.

It's probably also obvious to you now that if we use minerals to maintain our balance, they must come from somewhere. This idea of a body miraculously adjusting its balance really makes no sense at all because without a ready supply of alkaline minerals how could it balance anything? These are the same minerals we spoke about in the "lemon" question, and the great advantage of drinking water loaded with ionized alkaline minerals that they get into the body without metabolism occurring - that is, they just go straight to work!

When we hear someone say "being alkaline is no better than being acid" we really do wonder what comic book they have been reading.

14. Can alkaline water help with calcium deficiency?

We have found numerous papers and articles that claim so including the following:

Boning Up on Osteoporosis

When we eat beef, pork, lamb, chicken, or other foods from animals, our bodies take in proteins that may be rich in sulfur. That's unlike the proteins in plant foods - fruits, veggies, nuts, grains, or legumes like peas or dry beans. As we digest animal proteins, the sulfur in them forms acid. A slight, temporary acid overload - called acidosis - may result.

To regain our natural balance of acidity to alkalinity, or pH, in the bloodstream, our bodies must buffer the influx of acid. One possible buffer is calcium phosphate, which the body can borrow from our bones - the body's main storage depot for this essential mineral.

Though calcium phosphate is an effective buffer and neutralizer, taking it from bones might increase our risk of osteoporosis. This unhealthy increase in the porosity of bones, and resultant thinning, leaves those afflicted with this disease especially vulnerable to fractures of the spine, hips, and wrists.

Estimates from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) indicate that 10 million Americans, mainly women, already suffer from this disease. Another 28 million Americans are at risk. Other NIH analyses suggest that one in every two women and one in every eight men over age 50 in this country will have an osteoporosis related fracture in their lifetime.

17. How does a water ionizer work?

You connect the ionizer directly to the cold water line through your counter top or directly to a diverter valve at the end of your faucet. Connecting directly to your faucet takes about10-15 minutes and enables your water ionizer to use a two step process. The first task is to help filter out harmful components of the water: chlorine, trihalomethanes, phenols, sediment, odor, taste, organic waste, and bacteria of all kinds. The Ionways achieves this by the use of a multistage activated carbon filter containing tourmaline and coral calcium. Next, a small electrical charge is introduced into the water through mesh plate electrodes. The process of electrolysis that follows takes place in a patented chamber designed to separate the water into two streams (acid and alkaline) of ionized water. The acid water makes up about 30% of the water and the alkaline water 70%.

Positively charged ions gather at the negative electrode to create "reduced water", which concentrates available alkaline minerals, such as calcium, magnesium and potassium from the source water. This clean, healthy, microclustered, alkaline ionized water is drawn through the main stainless steel spout. This water is ideal for drinking and cooking.

Negatively charged ions gather at the positive electrode to make oxidized water, which concentrates acid minerals such as nitrates, sulfides, chlorides, and fluorides from the source water. This acid ionized water has a myriad of external uses. It is discharged into the sink when not needed.

A range of pH settings from neutral to very alkaline or very acid is available at the touch of a button. The electrodes are cleaned on a continuous automatic cleaning cycle.

18. Just what is the magic in a Water Ionizer?

The 'magic' is really a simple process called electrolysis, or ionization, something your body has to do everyday to make energy available. It is backed up by the high tech ability of micro-circuitry to maintain quality and regular output, plus the ability, through ionization, to remove harmful chemicals and retain beneficial minerals. This is why Sang Whang, author of Reverse Aging calls it "REVERSE AGING WATER."

A custom designed motherboard controls all aspects of the process of ionization, including flow rate, water temperature, and a range of four separate pH output settings.

19. What type of water can I use to produce ionized water?

Regular tap water is best. Distilled water or water filtered by reverse osmosis does not have any minerals, therefore it cannot be ionized. Water ionizers can be used with most well water. The two most common problems found in well water are hydrogen sulfide (rotten egg, sulfur smell) and high iron or calcium content. Both of these conditions can be remedied with the proper pre-filter. (contact us for recommendations.) The mineral content of your source water directly affects the strength of ionized water you can produce. The more minerals, the stronger the ionization: higher alkalinity and higher antioxidant potential. Very high calcium levels in the water can cause scale build up.

Back to FAQs || Back to Top

20. What advantages does ionized water have over reverse osmosis or distillation?

Unlike Reverse Osmosis (RO) and distillation, which remove all minerals - leaving the water dead and acidic - ionized water concentrates health giving alkaline minerals like magnesium and calcium, after removing harmful contaminants. Water from RO and distillation is very acid (pH 4.5-6.5) and so contributes to the over acidity of our bodies. Alkaline water helps counteract acid/ alkaline imbalance. Because RO and Distilled waters are mineral deficient and strongly acid, there are warnings from a number of physicians not to drink them on a sustained basis. While RO and distilled waters are strongly oxidizing, alkaline ionized water is a proven powerful antioxidant, equivalent to fresh squeezed orange juice (-without the sugar.

Having been completely demineralized, RO and distilled water and most bottled water are understandably flat tasting. The tastiness of water from Ionways' ionizers is one of its most immediate qualities: it brings delighted responses from everyone! Along with this go superior hydrating qualities due to the ionization. This ionization is also what happens in nature when water is allowed to bounce over rocks and waterfalls.

Finally, let's compare the ongoing costs: In home RO water is approximately 20% more expensive than ionized water. In home distillation is 700 - 1000% more expensive than ionized water. Bottled water is more expensive than RO or distilled water.

21. Why does the water ionizer filter leave some minerals in and not others?

The filter (depending on model) is a silver activated antibacterial charcoal filter. It filters up to 0.01 microns, and according to John Archer's book The Water You Drink filters out even all viruses. However it does not filter out the essential alkalizing minerals that are in solution.

It's important to understand, however, that our body's calcium levels are only ever changed to a maximum of 15% by dietary supplement. The real loss is in the body leaching calcium from our bones to balance our excess acidity (70%). As your water ionizer does its job and relieves your body's task of maintaining an alkaline balance, far less calcium would need to be leached from the bones. In other words, ionized water reduces the need for calcium supplements over and above normal dietary intake.

22. Is the Ionizing Water Filter just another new, unproved fad?

The Water Ionizers have been in use worldwide for more than 25 years. The same concept has been used for home and industrial applications. In Korea, it has been approved by the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare. Millions are already in use in Japan. In the USA large companies such as Cosco are now beginning to use commercial alkaline water ionizers for bottling water.

23. So what if water is easier to absorb?

With the increased solubility of the water, it is more readily absorbed into your body. Your skin and hair becomes significantly softer. In addition, it can enhance the absorption of vitamins and minerals into your body. It also may help clear up some digestive problems.

Back to FAQs || Back to Top

24. What are the various levels of alkalinity and acidity (pH) for?

Ionways water ionizers provide, at the push of a button, water that varies from mildly alkaline to highly alkaline. This enables you to accustom yourself gradually to higher levels of alkaline drinking water (e.g. pH9.5 to 10). You should start slowly at the lowest alkaline setting and work your way up to higher levels and amounts. If you experience any discomfort from detoxification, just move back to the previous level or smaller quantities. It also allows different members of the family to dial up their preferred level. The highest levels of alkalinity are also used for cooking.

In addition there is a button for water that is 'purified only' - filtered but not ionized. Its pH level will be close to the level of your regular tap water. This water is for those taking medications which should not be combined with alkaline water.

athenaunit.jpg, 6.1kB

As for the various levels of acid ionized water, you will probably use the most acid level for the long list of uses for acid water.

Remember: the pH level of ionized water will vary with the pH of your source, i.e. your tap water. In addition, if you wish to make the water more alkaline or more acid, simply slow down the flow of water, and the pH level will change by approximately a value of 1.

25. Do I need a plumber to install my water ionizer?

No. They come with a diverter kit that fits all standard kitchen faucets, and installs easily in minutes. However, for the unit that fits under the sink, you may need a plumber, if you don't have simple plumbing skills.

Back to FAQs || Back to Top

26. How do I get my ordinary tap water once it's attached?

The diverter has a lever which swaps your water flow from tap water outlet to alkaline water outlet. It has an incorporated aerator for your tap water.

Back to FAQs || Back to Top

27. How do I know when the filter needs replacing?

An LED or counter indicator on the front panel gives an approximate indication of remaining filter life. Generally the standard Biostone filter lasts about 9 months and the Ultra fine Biostone filter lasts about 8 months. But this depends on the source of water and the amount of use. For example, if your tap water contains between 0.4 and 1.0 ppm (parts per million) of chlorine, a filter can last 12 months for one person's use. If greater than 1.0ppm, the filter may last 9 months. A family of four on a typical North American water supply will use a filter about every 9 months. By changing your filter at regular intervals, you are assured of the inner hygiene of the filter.

Back to FAQs || Back to Top

28. How do I change the filter?

Open the front, grab the filter, press down a little, and pull it out. After installing new filter, run the system for a few minutes to clear away any loose charcoal.

Back to FAQs || Back to Top

29. Can I store the water? For how long?

Yes, alkaline ionized water is best kept in an airtight glass or quality plastic container. It can be refrigerated or kept in a cool place. Avoid storage in metal, especially aluminum containers. The alkaline properties will be retained for 1-2 weeks, but they are strongest when fresh (within the first 3 days). The antioxidant properties start to diminish after 18-24 hours. So for the best benefits, drink it within a day or so. If using plastic please check to see that the plastic container used is good quality. Bottled water is usually stored in cheap plastic that leaches chemicals.

30. Can I cook with alkaline ionized water?

Yes, in fact your food will taste better and your body will assimilate the nutrients more readily. You will notice the difference especially at the most alkaline settings (higher pH): your greens will be greener, rice fluffier, tea and coffee tastier.

31. What can I use the acid water for?

Acid ionized water is destructive to bacteria and is astringent. As a result it has found widespread application commercially in: nurseries, surgeries, food preparation areas, sprout and wheat grass growers, florists, hospitals, etc. In the home it is an excellent cleansing and sterilizing agent, with uses in the kitchen, for hair and skin care, extending the life of flowers, promoting plant growth and many others.

The acid water is a 'free' bonus. It is excellent for all manner of skin complaints. We use it as an astringent face wash last thing at night, we fill the fountain with it and at last the fountain doesn't go green in 3 days, it's excellent for acne, sores, bench top and more. Hardly a week passes without a call from a client who has found a new use for it.

We collect it in the sink and after rinsing our dishes we dip them into the acid water to sterilize them before putting them away. We also put it onto our pot plants because it closely resembles rainwater.

32. Why does the ionizer 'split' the water into acid and alkaline?

The 'splitting' of the inlet H2O is the proof that the Ionizer does what it says it does. The process of splitting causes the following:

Some companies sell units that just use magnets or magnetic rock to affect the water. Products that claim the benefits of water ionizers but do not electronically split the water will not hold the negative charge long enough for it to be of any real value, or will not be able to exert enough magnetic power to cause the water to become negatively charged. The water will reunite very quickly back into ordinary H2O.

Back to FAQs || Back to Top

33. Is it necessary to test my water or body to determine the current PH?

No - we are almost all too acidic due to poor food, environmental pollutants, lack of gentle exercise and stress.

Even if not too acidic, our bodies will continue to benefit from alkaline foods and water. When beginning to use alkaline water start at a low (gentle) alkaline setting. This water really does work and change lives and as a result for first few days there may be symptoms of detox such as mild headache, mental confusion and diarrhea. Once these symptoms past then it is fine to go up to a level that feels comfortable.

Ionizer performance varies with the mineral content of the source water. We include a free pH reagent kit with each unit so you can test the output water at the various settings. Please note that diet, stress and environmental factors all have a significant effect on our body pH.

Back to FAQs || Back to Top

34. Is it necessary to test the water for contaminants are before I buy a machine?

Not necessary unless you have untested well water or water from a private source. The filter in the Ionways ionizer does an excellent job of removing what is not wanted while allowing the essential alkalizing minerals in solution to pass through. You can also look at your water report on line if using city water. If there is an unusually high concentration of any pollutant we carry all types of pre-filters.

Back to FAQs || Back to Top

35. Is there a cost for such tests? Is it necessary to periodically test the water?

To test water there is a cost - for pricing ask your local water authority for a company that tests water and go from there. Ionways offers a free analysis of any test result. If you are using well water that has not been tested it is recommended that tests be done for organisms, nitrates, nitrites, TDS, pH, hardness and any other known local issues.
