Alkaline Water carries a negative electrical charge making it a natural antioxidant and this electrical charge destroys bacteria. It contains mega electrons acting as scavengers to fight the free radicals, which attack the cells. This allows your immune system to become stronger and enables the body to better fight off disease. It actually helps the body to heal itself. Alkaline water neutralises excess acidity in the body. All forms of arthritis, heart disease, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, diabetes, kidney stones, gall stones, tooth decay, and all diseases, are associated with excess acidity.
All Degenerative Diseases are Linked to Acidity
The relationship between Alkalinity and Oxygen
Water ionises into H+ and OH-
When H+ and OH- ions are in equal numbers the PH is neutral
If H ions are greater in number then the water is acidic
If OH negative ions are predominate, the water is alkaline
The H+ ions in acidic water will bind with free oxygen to create H2O molecules of water.
This is why acid rain kills fish. There is less oxygen in the water!
Alkaline Water with its many OH negative ions (OH-) is rich in oxygen because the OH- ions combine with each other to form H2O and release oxygen in the process. The negative ions in alkaline water are stable because they are bound to an alkaline earth mineral. The OH- ion is released and the oxygen produced from the alkaline mineral binds to and neutralises a toxic acid somewhere in the physiology. In this manner the oxygen is delivered to exactly where its needed - an area in the physiology that is acidic and devoid of oxygen.
This area is where we find trapped plasma proteins creating excessive fluid, excessive sodium ion and a lack of oxygen. The areas of all disease, all pain, all swellings and all cancer.
Acidic beverages such as soft drinks rob our bodies of oxygen, while alkaline drinks such as Alkaline Water enrich the body with oxygen and much needed minerals. Alkaline Water is the most alkaline and the healthiest of waters.
Acid and alkaline water is also being used in Japanese hospitals. These waters destroy mould, viruses and bacteria by removing the PH outside the range where pathogens can survive and also by the electrical charge of the water.
This makes alkaline water a stronger disinfectant than chlorine bleach. Japanese hospital patients drink the alkaline water and their wounds are bathed with the acid water.
Liquid Health Water
What makes Alkaline water better than all other water is that it is not just water. It contains 90mg Magnesium and v/v 70ml/L oxygen.
Magnesium is a vital catalyst in enzyme activity, especially the activity of those enzymes involved in energy production.
Magnesuim enters into a special partnership with calcium in the production of the very gem of biologic energy, adenosine triphosphate (ATP).
Magnesium deficiency is the prime factor in cellular energy shortage. Magnesium deficiency is the common link among many different disease affecting the brain, heart, muscles and other organs. If you start restoring magnesium to the body in ample amounts, a host of unrelated problems suddenly begin to clear up.
Researches have found that magnesium deficiencies may be far more common than doctors ever realised. Many doctors are unfamiliar with the effects of magnesium deficiency.
When doctors test for magnesium deficiency they test for it only in the blood and may not reflect the amounts in bone tissues and muscle cells where this mineral plays a major role.
Magnesium specialist Bells T Altura Ph.D. of the State University of New York's State Medical Centre in brooklyn, believes there is a close link between sudden fatal heart attacks, stress and magnesium deficiency. She has found that stress indirectly causes the body to excrete magnesium, resulting in a magnesium deficiency in the heart muscle (medical hypotheses, vol.6. No.1, 1980). In a major report published by the National Research Council of Canada in 1979, for instance, the heart of cardiac victims were found to contain about 22 percent less magnesium than the hearts of those who died accidentally. The magnesium shortage was most acute where the heart muscle infarcted: dead due to ischemia, or choked-off blood circulation.
Burton Altura, Ph.D. a professor of physiology and medicine at the State University of New York Health Science Centre at Brooklyn, was quoted in the July-August 1966 edition of Alternative and Complimentary Therapies (Vol 218) as believing "that 75 percent of people in the western world are magnesium deficient", falling way short of the RDA for men 350mg and RDA for women 280mg.
In the 1990's Dr. Robert Whang of the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Centre studied over 1000 hospitalised patients who had been tested for abnormalities in their blood chemicals. He discovered that 49 percent of them had abnormally low blood levels of magnesium.
General Physical Characteristics of Magnesium Deficiency
Muscle weakness, muscle twitches and tremors, irregular heart beat, insomnia, leg cramps, restless or jumpy legs, slightly shaky hands, eye flutter, arthritis, confusion, irritability and poor digestion. Other magnesium deficiencies can be synonymous with diabetes, asthma, chronic fatigue and depression to name but a few.
Following is list of some of the problems that may be helped with the addition of supplemented magnesium.
Angina, Research by the Swiss showed that 6 months magnesium supplementation decreased attacks of severe chest pain in people diagnosed with coronary heart disease. (National Health vol: 26, Sept-Oct 1995)
Atherosclerosis, Slightly high magnesium intake can prevent cholesterol clogging of heart arteries. (Science News, 137:214 April 7, 1990)
Asthma, Researchers at the university of Nottingham, England, found that high dietary magnesium improved lung function and greatly reduced the risk of wheezing in asthma attacks. (Natural Health, vol: 26 Sept-Oct 1995)
Autism, French psychiatrists noticed definite clinical improvement in autistic children given a nutritional combination of vitamin B6 and magnesium daily. (Biological Psychiatry 20: 467-78, May 1985)
Crohn's Disease, of 25 patients hospitalised with severe inflammatory disease, 84 percent had evidence of magnesium deficiency when measured for content of this particular mineral. Journal of the American college of Nutrition, 4:553-58, Sep-Oct 1985)
Diabetes, Magnesium eases diabetic blood pressure. Administration on magnesium to patients with type 2 diabetes reduced their insulin resistance considerably (Science news, 138:189, Sept 22, 1990 and Therapies, 49:1-7,1994)
Excitability, Those who become emotionally reactive and highly excitable over mundane matters show decreased levels of magnesium in their cerebrospinal fluids. (Pharmacology Biochemistry and Behaviour, 5:529-34, 1976)
Heart Attacks, At the Royal Leicester Infirmary in England, 2316 patients admitted to the coronary care unit were given either intravenous magnesium or a placebo. Heart attacks were ultimately diagnosed in 65 percent of these patients. After a month the death rate was a mere 8 percent among those given magnesium, but much higher in those receiving only the placebo. (Lancet, 2:1553-58, June 17, 1992)
Hypertension, High blood pressure was prevented in rats that had been treated in initiate salt-induced hypertension. All it took was spiking the rats' drinking water with 4 to 8 times their RDA of magnesium.
Premenstrual Syndrome, (PMS) Women afflicted with PMS received measurable relief from their symptoms of anxiety, irritability, mood swings, breast tenderness, fatigue and headache when they increased their dietary and supplemental intakes of both magnesium and zinc, as well as taking a mutipurpose vitamin formula (Sheldon Saul Hendler, M.D., PhD., The Doctors Vitamin and Mineral Encyclopedia, New York, Simon and Schuster, 1990 p 160)
Stress, Daily magnesium intake enables the body to cope better with physiological stress; this is especially true for women. (Science News, 151:279, May 3, 1997).
Suicide, Of 41 unmedicated psychiatric patients, 11 women who attempted suicide had significantly lower cerebrospinal fluid levels of magnesium than non-suicidal patients and controls. Magnesium is essential to maintain normal serotonergic activity in the central nervous system. When supplemented with ample magnesium, these same 11 women reported feeling no further urge to take their lives (Biological Psychiatry, 20:173-71, Feb 1985).
Research has been carried out on Oxygen by the following people.
"All chronic suffering is caused from a lack of oxygen at the cell level." (Dr. Arthur Guyton M.D. Text on medical physiology)
Dr. Otto Warburg, received two Nobel Prizes. One for when he proved that cancer was anaerobic (without oxygen), and two, that all illness was caused by a lack of oxygen at the cell level.
Dr. W. Spencer Way, "The link between insufficient oxygen and disease has now been firmly established." Insufficient oxygen means insufficient biological energy that can result in anything from mild fatigue to life threatening disease. (Journal of the American Associates of Physicians).
Dr. Steven Levine, (Renowned Molecular Biologist and Geneticist). "Hypoxia, or lack of oxygen in the tissues, is indeed, the underlying root cause of not just cancer but, quite possible, all chronic degenerative disease.
Without a consistent supply of oxygen, the human body cannot effectively combat disease or get rid of toxins. Also, environmental and physiological factors such as air and water pollution, highly processed foods, stress and anxiety can rob oxygen from our bodies.
Our sources of oxygen are diminishing! The earth's two main
sources of oxygen are created by oceans and by the growth of rain
forests. Studies show that atmospheric oxygen is declining. Oxygen
levels found in normal drinking water are apporoximately v/v 7ml/L.
Alkaline Water has v/v 70ml/L.
