Until the 20th Century all living creatures drank life giving water coming from the heavens…… which cycled through the earth’s minerals …… and received energy along the way. Lourdes, France, Shin-Chan areas of China, and glacial streams in the Andes and Himalayas contain elevated alkaline pHlevels naturally and are The Vilcabamba Valley highly ionized with in Ecuador is one of 5 places beneficial electrons. on earth where people live up to 120 years of age.
Ionization is created naturally in nature’swaterfalls and lightning storms.Negative ions abound by the ocean. Home water ionizers recreate the properties of the world’s healthiest waters. Tap water becomes restructured during the ionization process, creating highly oxygen rich, alkaline drinking water. Ionic Alkaline Water increases your oxygen intake on a cellular level.
"Water Ionization could be one of the most important healthbreakthroughs in our era." Dr. Gabriel Cousins, Author "Conscious Eating"“Over-acidification interferes with life itself, leading to all sicknessand disease. Ionized water helps reverse the effects of acidaccumulation in the body, the root cause of degenerative diseasesand aging.“ Dr. Robert O Young, Author “pH Miracle”"Restructured alkaline water may well be the best element orsupplement you can put in your body! ..The Japanese haveresearched this subject for over 40 years and have found thatdrinking restructured alkaline water can relieve or reduce the.. maincauses for sickness, disease and pre-mature aging.” Dr. DavidS Dyer ND, Hippocrates Health Institute
Masaru Emoto, a Japanese researcher and expert in the study of water has foundthat polluted or contaminated water, as well as highly processed and chlorinatedwater, produces clusters and crystals of water that show substantial deformities. Tap water of the World Due to water treatment methods, Water crystals fail to form from tap water almost anywhere in the world.

Water is a key And yet we‟reessential ingredient dehydrated…in our bodies With our current lifestyles, At birth, water accounts for 80% as we age our bodies become acidicof an infant’s body weight and the and we dehydrate; body’s pH is neutral water = only 50% of body weight
FACTS ABOUT DEHYDRATION - 1998 survey by Cornell Medical Center, NYIt is estimated that at least 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated.The main cause of daytime fatigue is simply a lack of water.A mere 2% drop in hydration cantrigger fuzzy short-term memory,trouble with basic math, anddifficulty focusing.In a University of Washingtonstudy, drinking one glass of waterwhen feeling hungry stoppedthe hunger pangs in 98% of thedieters surveyed.

“You are not sick, you are thirsty” - F. Batmanghelidj, MDEvery cell has a specific function it performs through Metabolism • Water is the medium of metabolism • 1% drop in cellular hydration = net 10% loss of metabolic efficiency • The cell’s function is impaired • When dehydrated, the body prioritizes the use of water to vital organs, and the healing of chronic conditions gets ignored • “Digestion disorder” occurs From Your Body’s Many Cries For Water F. Batmanghelidj, MD

Dehydrated Cells Fully Hydrated Blood CellsAlkaline Blood is Hydrated Acidic Blood isAnd carries an abundance Dehydrated andof oxygen does not carry sufficient oxygen
The root cause…•What you eat, drink & breathe will either nourish the 75 trillion cells orcontaminate the cells by the slow poisoning of the bloodstream. The bloodstream isdesigned as a flowing river to all the cells for critical nourishment, and removal ofacidic waste residues.•In cellular tests, when the cell was given what it needed 1.) enough oxygen 2.) thenutrients it needed, and 3.) the ability to efficiently remove it‟s wastes, it thrivedINDEFINITELY (with no atrophy, disease, or “aging”).•So, is your bloodstream a clean river of life or a sludgy pond of aging & disease? Allnew body cells arise from blood cells. As all your cells turn over and you get a newheart, liver, skin, eyes, the new cells continually creating your new body parts allcome from the state of your blood. Physically, you literally are a manifestation ofwhat you eat, drink & breathe…
Dr Otto Warburg won the Nobel Prize in 1931 for his ground-breaking work on cancer.He concluded that cancer cells thrivein an acidic environment withoutoxygen, ANDnormal cells became cancerous whenthey lacked oxygen.
So, do we just drink more water? Is any water the same as another? Dehydration is a Symptom • Of a widespread syndrome: “acidosis” • Our blood cells function best between a pH of 7.3-7.4 (alkaline) – Most foods in our diet produce acidic wastes • Acidifying foods: alcohol, meats, dairy, sugar, processed • Also acidifying: stress, pollution, chemicals • In a healthy body, these wastes are manageable • But with the constant barrage of unhealthy diet, stress & external pollutants, the wastes accumulate • Dehydration occurs as our bodies try to flush the wastes away – Robbing precious water from our cells and body fluids • Drinking water won‟t solve the problem – Bottled and purified waters are acidic (pH 4-6) – Sodas & alcohol are very acidic (pH 3), worsening the problem • So…the acidic wastes accumulate Acidity is the Problem
More and more practitioners and researchers now believe that chronic degenerative disease flourishes in an acidic environment.The body accumulates these dangerous depositswaiting for pH balance to return when it canrehydrate and flush them away.But most of us stay acidic and don‟t even know it.Eventually we get diseased and start taking pills.Meanwhile, cells and organs function poorlyand we prematurely age, as ailments &diseases routinely set in, diminishing thequality of our lives… “…over-acidification interferes with life itself, leading to all sickness and disease!“ Dr. Robert O. Young, PhD Author of The pH Miracle

Dr Ray Kurzweil, Author "Fantastic Voyage:Live Long Enough to Live Forever.”
Acid Waste = DiseaseWe use up precious alkaline mineralreserves trying to neutralize theacidic wastes: From Bones → osteoporosis From Teeth → decay, plaque, periodontal diseaseOur bodies store acidic wastes in: Fat cells → obesity Arteries → cardiovascular diseases: high cholesterol, blood pressure, heart attacks, stroke Joints → arthritis, gout Brain → Alzheimer‟s disease? Kidneys → kidney stones, kidney failure Skin → wrinkles, dryness, aging

How important is the acid / alkaline balance?“Alkaline water rids the body of acid waste. After carefully evaluatingthe results of my advice to hundreds of individuals, I’m convinced thattoxicity in the form of acidic waste is the primary cause ofdegenerative disease.”Dr. Sherry Rogers MD, author of “Detox or Die”"I have administered over 5000 gallons of this water for about everyhealth situation imaginable. I feel that restructured alkaline water canbenefit everyone." "The countless names attached to illness do not reallymater. What does matter is that they all come from the same root cause:too much tissue acid waste in the body."Dr Theodore Baroody DC, ND, Ph.D., Dipl. Acu,author of “Alkalize or Die”
Reverse Osmosis and Distilled Water Distilled and Reverse Osmosis Water are both very pure water, howeverthey are both highly acidic and “dead” water. They are empty, unnatural, feed disease and leach precious minerals from our bodies. Blood has a pH of approximately 7.35 to 7.45.Reverse Osmosis has a pH of 5.0 -- 100 times more acidic than our blood. Distilled Water has a pH of 4.5 -- 1,000 times more acidic than our blood.

“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”
Free Radicals “Scientists now believe that free radicals are causal factors in nearly every known disease and aging ” - Dr. Lester Packer, University of California• Free Radical = an O2 (oxygen) with a missing electron. Unstable oxygen.• Free Radicals cause oxidation & damage,deteriorating the surface of the cells they attack.• Oxidation in our body weakens our tissues andsnowballs the process of “aging”.
– Free Radicals thrive, from external pollutants or metabolic waste– These are dangerous, positively-charged oxygen atoms (“Reactive Oxygen Species”)– They are desperately hungry for negative charges (electrons)– In healthy cells they are neutralized by free electrons before they can accumulate and damage us– In acidic conditions, electrons are scarce, so free radicals accumulate– They damage cells, organs and DNA by „oxidation‟, bring on “aging” & disease– „Oxidative Stress‟ caused by free radical damage accelerates and worsens the diseases triggered by acidosis– Well recognized as an important cause of cancer"It is virtually impossible to get the optimal amount of antioxidants through food alone." Dr. Lester Packer, UC BerkeleyFree Radicals & Inflammation:• Free radicals are vital to the body‟s defenses against infection. When the body‟s balance is disturbed, free radicals become molecules of inflammation and set off a chain reaction that leads to the destruction of healthy tissues. The result is chronic inflammation, pain, and joint stiffness.• Cardiovascular disease, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, asthma, arthritis, gastrointestinal disorders and hypertension are linked to inflammation and a build of up free radicals.

“…there are over 75,000 synthetic chemicals that have been introduced to our environment since 1930.” Dr. Steve Nugent, Author of “How to Survive on a Toxic Planet” “…over 116,000 human-made chemicals are finding their way into public water systems.” William Marks, Author of “Water Voices from Around the World”“…. five hundred thousand to seven million people get sick per year from drinking tap water.” Erik Olson, Deputy Staff Director of Barbara Boxer’s Environmental and Public Works Committee (EPW)
Industrial Waste & More than 2,100Found Contaminants are Polluting Our Tap Water …and so the Purification and Bottled Water Industries were Born
The Perceived Value of Bottled Water • Tap water: chlorine/chloramines, fluoride, pharma, agricultural runoff, arsenic, lead, mercury, cyanide, ETC. 2100+ documented tap water contaminants. • If contaminants are bad wouldn’t “pure” water be good then? •“Purified” water is man-made. (Purified, Reverse Osmosis/RO, Distilled) • Healthy natural minerals are removed. • Very acidic. Reduces stable oxygen delivery to your cells. Leeches minerals from your body to help balance acidic pH & void water. • Large cluster size and (+) electrical charge – oxidizing to your cells. • Hard to absorb. Plastic leeched into water. Environmentally destructive.**(IonWays alkaline water ionizer’s 9-stage Biostone Filter System cleans your water to be virtuallycontaminant free – giving you clean and healthy water.)
Summary• Alkaline Ionized Water helps detox and rid the body of acidic waste.• Provides superior micro-clustered hydration of the cells for optimum function. More energy, more alert, faster healing, weight loss etc.• “Anti-Aging”: Prevents the ravages of free radicals with its powerful antioxidant properties.• Helps reduce the risk of organ damage and associated oxidative diseases.• Supports optimum oxygen delivery to cells.• Ensures filtration of wastes & contaminants from tap water.• Gives your body the natural ingredient it needs (just under air) to heal itself and restore balance & vitality.
