you-are-what-you-drinkIn the August-September issue of Generations Magazine®, I profiled experts in the medical field and reported what they had to say about ionized, restructured alkaline water, and its ability to improve health.

The article generated more comments and requests than any of my previous three articles, so I will share more profiles and comments from experts in the medical field as a incentive to try ionized, restructured alkaline water.

Ionized Water History
Virtually all longevity researchers agree that free radicals are responsible for the aging process.
The fundamentals of ionized water technology were first developed in Japan in the early 1950s. Full-scale development started in 1954. Following the efforts of Japanese medical doctors, the water ionizer was approved for medical therapeutics by the Japanese Ministry of Health and Rehabilitation in January of 1966. Over 30 million people in Japan have used the water ionizer over the last 40 years.

After 60 years studying Hunza water from a mountainous valley in Pakistan, Dr. Henry Coanda discovered that it differs from regular water. As a young man, Dr. Patrick Flanagan was offered the opportunity to join Dr. Coanda and continue his research. Together, they discovered the water’s alkaline properties as well as an extraordinary amount of active oxygen (hydrogen with an extra electron), a negative redox potential and a high colloidal mineral content.

Dr. Coanda, who coined the expression, “You are what you drink,” concluded that the water contains the secret to reversing the aging process, adding that water affects our health more than any other nutrient.

Sources: Dr. Henri Coanda, the Romanian father of fluid dynamics, nobel prize winner, holder of over 600 patents, is considered to be one of the greatest scientist of all time.

Dr. Patrick Flanagan, named 1997 Scientist of the Year by the International Association of New Sciences, holds over 300 patents and has advanced degrees in nanotechnology, chemistry, bio-sciences and medicine.

Free Electrons and Body Acidity
There is no substitute for a healthy, balanced diet, especially one rich in antioxidant materials such a vitamin C, vitamin E and betacarotene.

However, these substances are not the best source of free electrons that can block the oxidation of healthy tissue by active oxygen.

Water treated by electrolysis to increase its reduction potential is the best solution to the problem of providing a safe source of free electrons to block oxidation of normal tissue free oxygen radicals.

Alkaline living water (ionized) is regarded by a growing number of healthcare professionals as the best water to drink; it is listed as a medical devise in Japan for treatment of degenerative diseases.

When the blood continues to develop an acidic condition, cells begin to die. Other cells in this affected area may survive by becoming abnormal and malignant. Malignant cells undergo abnormal cellular division — the beginning of cancer. Modern medicine treats these malignant cells with radiation, chemotherapy and surgery. These treatments are not effective if the body remains acidic.
