i-on [ahy-uhn, ahy-on] –noun Physics, Chemistry. 1. An atom or a group of atoms that has acquired an electric charge by gaining or losing one or more electrons.
Ionization is a form of water technology that electrically activates or charges the ions in water through a process called electrolysis.
Electrolysis in a water ionizer alters water in two primary ways:
Raises and lowers the pH
Alters the electrical property
This alteration creates “ functional water ”
IonWays Alkaline Water Ionizers The next generation:
Low pH uses of “Functional” Water EPA approved antimicrobial or sterilizing agent
High pH = surfactant and detergent properties Acts as a strong surfactant and detergent High pH uses of “Functional” Water
High pH uses of “Functional” Water Acts as a strong surfactant and detergent
Medium low pH use of “Functional ” Water Acts as a very effective Astringent
Medium high pH use of “Functional ” Water Agriculture, food and beverage processing, livestock etc…and of course drinking water

Our natural buffers acidic states, but its ability to balance pH has been overwhelmed.
The importance of the acid/alkaline balance
Our body is slightly Alkaline by design. The most important fluid – blood - is slightly alkaline at pH7.36
More and more practitioners and researchers now believe that chronic degenerative disease flourishes in an acidic environment.
Her research showed the sheer volume of acid waste our body has to handle has forced it to take drastic ‘war’ style action to preserve its strategic buffering reserves in the kidney and liver - our major essential detoxifying organs. “ We have turned an evolutionary corner. We simply do not handle acid waste the way we used to.” - Dr. Lynda Frassetto, Researcher, University of California, Berkeley Can our bodies still handle this balance?
Dr. Robert O. Young’s theory on the 7- stages the body goes through in becoming over-acidic 1) Sensitivity 2) Irritation 3) Secretion 4) Inflamation 6) Ulceration 5) Indolation (body protects itself by turning acidic waste into solids) 7) Degeneration The process of over acidification
“ The cells and fluids in most people’s bodies…are overly acidic. This can cause a lot of health problems. It prevents your body from neutralizing and disposing of harmful, poisonous toxins and leaves you more susceptible to the cell-damaging free radical oxidation that leads to cancer and other diseases.” - Dr. Robert Atkins, author of “The Atkins Diet” How important is the acid / alkaline balance? “ There is only one cause of all sickness and disease, the over-acidification of the tissue” - Dr. Robert O. Young, author of “The pH Miracle” series
Research has shown these waters to have common characteristics:
They are high alkalinity (pH) and beneficial minerals
They carry a strong negative electrical charge
An IonWays ionizer recreates these characteristics in the water that comes right from your tap . The worlds’s healthiest water – nature’s answer “ Hunza Water”, Lourdes, Trinity Water
“ International studies show that populations with little or no history of illness, such as cancer, drink higher (pH) alkaline waters. After all potential risk factors were considered and factored out, it became evident that they had been drinking waters with a pH of 9.0 to 10.0.” - Dr. L. Horowitz, author of “Aids and Ebola” How effective is this type of water?
How alkaline or acidic are the beverages you drink?
Highly ionized water has more antioxidants than a glass of fresh squeezed orange juice
Brain 80-85% Kidneys 83-88% Muscles 73-78% Blood 90-93% Bones 13-22% How important is hydration to our health?
The Effects of Dehydration Mild Chronic Dehydration Headache Low Energy Low Mental Acuity Low Back Pain Digestive Disorders Constipation Weight Issues Acute Chronic Dehydration Asthma Allergies Arthritis Type II Diabetes Hypertension Obesity The effects of chronic dehydration are like running a car on too little oil – it will run, but not very well….
1)Sensitivity 2) irritation 3)secretion 4) inflamation 5)indolation 6) ulceration 7)degeneration How Dehydration and acidosis work together 70-80% of America is dehydrated
“ You are not sick, you are thirsty” - F. Batmanghelidj, MD Every cell has a specific function it performs through Metabolism
The “digestion disorder” example
When dehydrated, the body prioritizes the use of water to vital organs
The cell’s function is impaired
1% drop in cellular hydration = net 10% loss of metabolic efficiency
Water is the medium of metabolism

Micro-clustering and Hydration Typical water 11-16 molecules per cluster After ionization 5-8 molecules per cluster The microlclustering effect and the (-) charge make ionized water up to 6x more hydrating than other waters
