Kangen Water Research
Research has shown time and again that, (as in all pharmaceuticals), when creating a product that is contrary to natural processes, the short term benefits will always be accompanied by long term harmful side effects. The short term benefits of artificially created alkaline water are increased tissue hydration and more available antioxidants; while the reported long term side effects are nervous tension, urinary tract and bladder infections and over-alkalization of the digestive tract. Studies on rats conducted by the National Institutes of Health (see links below) also revealed that artificially created alkaline water was injurious to cardiac tissue. Knowing this, why would anyone ever choose to drink artificially ionized water?
Ultimately, alkalinity isn’t the only characteristic to consider when choosing your water source. The water that most closely mimics what nature produces is going to be your best choice. Greenfield Water Solution products use 100% natural energies to create health-enhancing water with no harmful side effects and what our experiences are telling is that energized water trumps synthetic and electrically induced alkaline water every time because naturally energized water has the God-given intelligence to bring healthy balance to the cellular terrain.
WATER IONIZER – continued
Alkaline water can also be created by exposing water to similar minerals in a controlled environment such as a mineral pitcher or cartridge. Both of these methods produce stable, health enhancing, alkaline pH water which is the kind of water our bodies thrive on. A third way of creating alkaline water is accomplished without minerals using electricity to split the water molecules and create an artificially alkaline water. This unnatural method creates an unstable pH that tricks the body into thinking it is receiving minerals when it is not.
While in the throes of fascination reading about the mysteries of water, I was invited to a presentation on alkaline ionised water by a customer I met at the local FedEx store. The talk was showcasing the Kangen Water Ionisation machine which I had never heard of before. I must say that the presentation was most impressive and as the salesman wooed us with the amazing qualities of his $4,000 water ioniser, I found myself thinking, “Nature can do what this electric machine does and it can do it for less money with better results.”
As it turned out, my hunch was right. After a few months of research and a trip to Asia to prove it out, I returned to this group of Kangen Water devotees to pit my fifty dollar mineral water pitcher acquired in South Korea against their multi-thousand dollar electric water ioniser.
The refreshing, alkaline ionised water created by my inexpensive mineral pitcher not only matched but exceeded the performance of their outrageously over priced Kangen machine… and it was all done naturally, mimicking what happens in nature every day through the hydrological cycle!
This experience was one of many over the years which have shown me the immense value of listening to and following my intuition in my efforts to comprehend the mysterious and inexplicable forces of nature and the power they hold to sustain and enhance life on earth.
The concept behind ionising or electrolysing water machines is good in that it is increasing the availability of hydrogen and oxygen to the body.
The question is, “Can this be done naturally without the aid of electricity which shocks the water into a “healthy water” state?
These machines are no different than pharmaceuticals in that Big Pharma takes a plant, extracts specific components, creating something not naturally occurring and is thus able to patent it and call it, “their invention or creation”.
In the same way, electrolyzing water machines don’t mimic nature but override nature. When nature is mimicked, the process is typically not expensive in that nature is extremely effective, efficient and economical in all its practices and has been for thousands of years and that is why we’re still here living, breathing and enjoying life.
There are natural ways to create, ‘healthy water” which have the benefit of being inexpensive and efficient processes. These natural processes don’t require manmade electricity although nature does use electrical and magnetic processes to create healthy water.
In nature, water is enhanced, energized and structured using electromagnetism. Vortexing has multiple functions to support and enhance the uptake of energy into water.
Elements and minerals also play a crucial role in enhancing energizing and structuring water. Every element and mineral puts off a unique energetic frequency and each of these frequencies have a specific role to play in supporting cell functions.
The best way to improve our water is by copying nature. The key here though is to accurately assess principles at work in nature and to appropriately apply them. This has been my vision and what has driven me to create the Greenfield Water Solutions product line.
Below is a clinical study done on ionized water. (The problem I have with clinical studies is that scientists at large can’t or don’t differentiate between alkaline water as it is available in nature and alkaline water as it is created in the lab.
There is a difference and the problem arises from the science community having no respect for nature or an appreciation for the Creator.
Here’s a study done on the effects of magnesium in water:
The study provides clinical proof that hydrogen ions produced by running water over magnesium are effective and powerful antioxidants….not anecdotal evidence….clinical evidence. The exact wording from the summary of the study is as follows:
“The consumption of hydrogen rich water for 8 weeks resulted in a 39% increase (p<0.05) in antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD) and a 43% decrease (p<0.05) in thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS) in urine. Further, subjects demonstrated an 8% increase in high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol and a 13% decrease in total cholesterol/HDL cholesterol from baseline to 4 weeks.
What does this mean? The study showed that participants who drank hydrogen rich water demonstrated a massive increase in the antioxidant enzyme (SOD) and a massive decrease in acid in the urine (TBARS). In addition, participants showed a significant increase in HDL the “good cholesterol”, and a significant decrease in the “bad cholesterol”.
Here are a few more perspectives to consider which offer different but not all encompassing perspectives.
An op from my blog:
Ionised water was made popular by the Japanese who borrowed the technology from the Russians who invented the process. A water ioniser separates water into alkaline water and acid water using a process known as electrolysis which can also be defined as electrocution. Essentially it forces water into a structured state and tricks the body into believing it’s receiving pH balanced water. In order for this process to take place, minerals must be present in the water. This process is only feasible for creating small batches of water typically promoted as medical alkaline water.
Ionised water has been known to have short term beneficial effects but it is believed that long term use of this water is detrimental to good health. Prices for these counter top units can range from $600 to $4,000 dollars for comparable units with the most popular brands being Kangen an MLM company, Jupiter, Tyent and Enagic.
Greenfield Water Solution products creates safer, healthier, more balanced water through physical and energetic filtration, mineralization, vortexing and energy enhancement which provides the benefits of alkaline water in addition to enhanced hydration and energy rich water.
