The Water Cure

The Water Cure

Many people find it hard to believe that water actually plays a vital role in the treatment of disease and the maintenance and improvement of our health. After all, water is just water, right?

While drinking more water can reduce headaches, help with weight loss, improve skin tone and texture, all water is NOT created equal.

Bottled water, purified/RO water, tap water, spring water, “sparkling” water, distilled water – the choices seem endless at times.  But there is a water that has proven superior when it comes to hydration, detoxification and improving over-all health.

The type of water you consume is just as (if not more) important than the kind of food that you eat.

  • Do drink water that is free from harmful substances. Chlorine is generally added to water supplies to kill microorganisms. That’s good BUT… the natural flora in the intestinal tract are microorganisms too! Without these microorganisms the body’s ability to properly process food and maintain healthy digestive functions is impaired. Just as important, chlorine is known to be a carcinogenic substance.
  • Do not drink water that has been boiled for a long period of time.
  • Do drink water that contains a good balance of minerals.
  • Do not drink distilled water. It removes harmful substances from the body but it also removes valuable nutrients and minerals that our bodies need.
  • Do drink water with a large amount of dissolved calcium and magnesium.

Distilled water vs. Reverse Osmosis Filters vs. Water Ionizers

Several years ago, experts started advocating drinking pure water with no contaminants or minerals. Many people stopped drinking tap water because it was known to contain chlorine and other chemicals – even lye. To serve the “pure water” movement, distillation and reverse osmosis filters were marketed and bought right up by people interested in getting the purest water possible.

Now, after additional time and research it has been found that “pure water,” while free from harmful chemicals and other undesirable substances, actually has a negative affect on our bodies. We have found that we need minerals in our water. “Pure water” is actually a bit of a misnomer. When you think of pure water you think of things like natural streams or pristine mountain lakes. This type of pure water is full of minerals from the rocks and soil through which it flows. It is “pure” in the sense that it is free from chemicals or other “man made additives” and pollutants but it is full of minerals which the body needs.

In his book “Reverse Aging,” Sang Whang called “defensive overkill”:

“In an attempt to get ‘pure’ water, some people promote distillers and reverse osmosis (R.O.) filters. While these devices work well, they take everything out of the water. Unfortunately, this “pure” water is not healthy. It’s dead water. If ingested for long periods of time, it can leach out valuable body minerals, such as potassium, magnesium, sodium and calcium. One can take mineral supplements to replace them; however, it’s not easy to replace the minerals in our body in the same form that we lost them in.

Are you aware that when most waters go through a distillation or reverse osmosis purification system the “pure water” that has been created through these processes actually tests as “acidic?”

  • According to the molecular water environment theory proposed by Dr. Mu Shik John in his book “The Water Puzzle,” the best water to drink is ionized alkaline water.
  • Alkaline ionized water goes through a filtration process to remove chemicals, VOC’s and other contaminants found in most water today. Alkaline ionized water is clean.
  • Alkaline ionized water has been changed at the molecular level – water clusters are significantly smaller and “organized” in hexagonal rings – meaning the water is more readily absorbed by the body.
  • Alkaline ionized water rehydrates.
  • Alkaline ionized water is alkaline not acidic. From low alkaline levels of 8.0 up to 11.0 or higher (consuming alkaline water above 9.5 PH on a regular basis is not recommended), alkaline ionized water balances body PH rather than contributing to acidity.
  • Alkaline ionized water carries the highest known negative ORP ratings of any other water. An ORP rating is given to determine the water’s ability to “absorb” toxins and reduce free radicals. Alkaline ionized water is an anti-oxidant.
  • Alkaline ionized water remineralizes… the ionization process uses the minerals existing in water, breaking them down to be carried in the smaller water clusters allowing the body to actually absorb more of the minerals readily available in most water.

Alkaline ionized water is healthy water, “pure” water in the truest sense.
