My network of folks interested in alternative health is BUZZING about the amazing stories regarding increases in energy, toxicity cleansing, weight loss, and disappearing symptoms with the use of a water ionizer and alkaline water. So herein is the water ionizer defined.
The human body needs to be slightly alkaline (about 7.4 on the pH scale) but is bombarded with acids from emotional stress…foods like meat, dairy, sugar… soft drinks…medications…toxins in the environment and much more. When we become too acidic, our bodies rob alkaline minerals from our cells, depleting critical stores. As acidosis occurs, the body’s ability to absorb nutrients is damaged, cells cannot repair, rebuild, detoxify, and maintain energy. Tumor cells thrive in an acid climate and, overall, we are prone to fatigue and disease. Acidosis can even stall your weight loss--I've got a free eGuide I'd like to send to you with the latest research on how the pH of your water may affect your weight!
I spent several months researching alkaline water: studying, talking to experts and people who own water ionizers, interviewing company reps, and testing alkaline water from different machines. I wanted to sift through the hype in order to make the best purchase for my family's health. (I had been buying 4-oz. bottles of alkalizing drops for $73, and that had to end!)
A close friend of mine, a breast-cancer survivor, said that one month on alkaline water did as much for her energy and health as five years of eating 100% raw. She had made a list of 27 health benefits she’d noticed in the first month of drinking alkaline from a water ionizer. Borrowing alkaline ionized water from her, I felt an increase in my own energy level as well. But when I tested water from her units and the other machines I researched, the pH from either one goes back to almost as acidic as tap water after 8 hours. So you really need to own your own unit!
It takes 20 parts alkaline to neutralize 1 part acid, and most of us have a lot of acid coming in. It makes sense that alkaline water is the quickest way to balance the pH and neutralize the effects of the acidic conditions of stress, refined foods, etc. You could eat 80% raw and alkaline and not achieve effects as impressive as when you drink 8 daily glasses of ionized alkaline water. (That said, you should eat as much raw and alkaline as possible—and I take my own advice on this.)
My research led me to LIFE Ionizer - the oldest ionizer company in North America. Their units beat the others I tested for value, pH range, warranties, and options, AND they have the only under-sink-installed ionizer on the market. I have loved my LIFE Ionizer M9UC that installed UNDER MY SINK. I simply refused to have the other companies' big, bulky machines on top of my sink, taking up valuable counter space and cluttering up my kitchen, for the rest of my life. Best of all, they negotiated a group buy deal for my readers that is so fabulous, I'm not allowed to publish the prices on the internet!
10 Reasons To Avoid An Acid pH:
- Corrodes arteries, veins, and heart tissue: acid eats away at the inner tissue of arteries, veins, and the heart, making them brittle and weak.
- Accelerates free-radical damage and premature aging: oxidative damage from free radicals is the root cause of aging and degenerative conditions.
- Causes weight gain, diabetes, and obesity: buildup of acid within the body adversely affects the body’s ability to use and produce insulin and leads to an accumulation of acidic wastes which must be stored (as fat) away from vital organs.

- Inhibits metabolism of stored energy reserves: As acid builds up, it must be neutralized with alkaline minerals. If we are prevented from efficiently metabolizing the food we eat because of this acidic buildup, those required minerals must come from the bones and other tissues of our bodies.
- Causes cholesterol plaque to form: cholesterol is used by the body to trap acidic wastes in the blood and to line vital blood vessels to protect them from further damage.
- Disrupts blood pressure: in the presence of acid, blood vessels are forced to redistribute blood towards the center of the body, which compounds the heart’s already heavy work load.
- Disrupts critical lipid and fatty acid metabolism: this is linked to neurological damage and hormonal imbalance.
- Inhibits cellular regeneration and DNA-RNA synthesis: in healthy cells, DNA-RNA production cannot occur below a certain pH. Incidentally, cancerous cells flourish in an acidic pH.
- Inhibits oxygen getting to the tissues. Hemoglobin is the protein in your blood, which transports the oxygen that you breathe in. If the pH of the blood becomes too acidic, hemoglobin loses its ability to carry oxygen effectively.
- Inhibits life-giving electrolyte activity: electrolytes are required for muscle control. The availability of electrolytes is especially important in the regulation of smooth muscles used in metabolism and heart function.
