I too used to think that all water was created equal, until I switched to drinking alkaline ionized water for my eczema.
There are many types of water depending on the environment it is in and also what has been added to it to change its composition for various recipe purposes.
- soft water
- fresh well water
- spring water
- ionised water
- grander water
- distilled water
- reverse osmosis water
- mineral water
- sparkling water
- glacial water
- and the list goes on.
Ionised water is one of my favourites from this list and actually tastes sweeter and wetter than ordinary bottled water.
I found out about it while researching how to restore my skin to its former glory.
What Makes Ionized Water Special?
I would like to point out that this section goes into minute detail as to what this water is and why it is important for you… So hang on tight!
Dr Hayasaki, MD of Water Institute, Japan says this – “A high percentage of living things, both plant and animal are found in water. All life on earth is thought to have arisen from water… Also, about 70-90 per cent of all organic matter is water.
The chemical reactions in all plants and animals that support life takes place in a water medium.
Water not only provides the medium to make these life sustaining reactions possible, but water itself is often an important reactant or product of these reactions.
In short, the chemistry of life is Water Chemistry.
So What Has This to Do With Eczema?
In his scientific report, Dr Hayasaki states that “living things are extremely sensitive to pH and function best (with certain exceptions, such as certain portions of the digestive tract) when solutions are nearly neutral”.
Most interior living water in homes has a pH of about 6.8.
“Oxygen is essential to our bodies, but when too much is absorbed into the body, it can become active, unstable and has a tendency to attach itself to any biological molecule, including molecules of healthy cells.
The chemical activity of these free radical is due to one or more pairs of unpaired electrons”.
“Free radicals with unpaired electrons are unstable. They also have a high oxidation potential.
When too many of these free radicals turn loose in the body where they can damage normal tissue.”
“Putrefaction sets in when molecules in the air invade the proteins of eggs, fish and meat. And so you get unpleasant toxic substances like:
- Hydrogen Sulphide
So when you are quite toxic or even moderately, you will smell of the type of toxins in your body due to the oxidation and fermentation of such animal protein as eggs, fish and meat.
To cut a long story short, I will briefly explain that histamines contribute to allergic disorders, such as atopic dermatitis (or eczema!), hives, asthma, etc.
Indoles and phenols are considered carcinogenic, (meaning – able to cause cancer).
In other words, the type of water we drink is very important. One way to protect healthy tissue from oxidation ravaging caused by active oxygen is to provide free electrons to active oxygen radicals. Thus, neutralizing their high oxidation potential and preventing them reacting with health tissue.
So if you have excessively offensive stools caused by the molecular action in your body caused by fermentation of the food and drinks you consume, you are very toxic and need the type of water that has an excess of free electrons to donate to active electrons.
Juices are especially rich in antioxidants such as Vitamins C, E, beta-carotene, etc. However, the best source of free electrons to block oxidation of healthy tissue is;
Water Treated by Electrolysis
That is, reduced or ionized water is the best solution.
Why Is Ionized Water the Best Solution?
The reduction potential of water can be dramatically increased, surpassing the antioxidants in food or vitamin supplements.
As the molecular weight of reduced water is low, it acts faster and is able to reach all tissues of the body in a very short time.
Ionized water is the product of mild electrolysis which takes place in the ionized water unit.
It is treated tap water that is not only filtered, but has also been reformed – providing reduced molecular water.
This has a large mass of electrons that can be donated to active oxygen in the body to block the oxidation of normal body cells.
Tap Water; What it Is and What it Isn’t
Normal tap water has pH of 7 which is neutral on a scale of 0-14.
When measured with an oxidation potential measuring device or meter ORP, it’s redox (reducing potential is approximately +400 to +500mv. Because the tap water has a positive redox potential, it is apt to acquire electrons and oxidize other molecules.
Ionized (Reduced) Water
On the other hand, has a negative redox potential of approximately -250 to -350mvs
Meaning it has a large mass of electrons ready to donate to electron-thieving active oxygen.
News Flash: Here is short video highlighting the importance of choosing a good brand of ionizer.
I am not a dealer and do not receive any commission from this company. This is strictly for information purposes only. Please ignore the part towards the end recommending you buy this brand of ionizer.
…. As I was saying, an ionizer gives you access to both acidic and alkaline water that can permeate your body quickly. You have the best of both worlds and certain conditions you have may ease due to its use.
My ionizer is a Jupiter brand, and it gave our family lovely, sweet water to drink for a number of years. But unfortunately, I did not know what kind of warranty it had and now it is fossilising in my kitchen – well loved, but unused for a couple of years now…
During the time I used my ionizer, I had much better skin. I also did not have a furry tongue anymore. I noticed a big difference to my taste buds when I reverted back to bottled water after the ionizer stopped working properly.
So yes, I would encourage you to research and find an ionizer that suits your budget, kitchen countertop size, and, also has a satisfactory warranty.
- Softer hair when washed with the acidic water from the ionizer
- Less itching when the skin is cleansed
- Cleaner tasting tea or coffee when the alkaline water from ionizer is drunk.
- Overall improved health
TyentUSA have produced ionizers with a lifetime warranty for part, labour and service. For that reason alone, I highly recommend them for your use. Their support is second to none and you will save money in the long run. That is, on washing your vegetables, skin and drinking water. Remember – you drink the alkaline water and switch the ionizer mode to acidic for washing your skin or vegetables.
If you have any questions or comments about this little piece of rocket science, please let me know!
Only after you are making full use of these do I recommend going the extra mile to buy an ionizer which can be as expensive as $4500.
If you need to be on a tighter budget, I recommend starting with a juicer first. Use an Omega Juicer as it is strong and stands the test of time. It also works out cheaper than centrifugal juicers. As they tend to break after less than 3 years of heavy use. Besides that, you will have to buy less produce as the Omega juicer churns out drier pulp from your vegetables and fruit. For you, this mean more juice and less waste.
And we need to go heavy! At least 6 glasses daily when dealing with chronic eczema. And then 3 glasses for breakfast to maintain clear skin. If this is too much to start with – drink 1 glass before or after every meal. Then week by week add an extra glass to the mix until you are drinking 6-8 glasses a day. Halve the amount for children under 12. And halve the amount again for babies and toddlers.
As for ionizers, you will find that the water is wetter than bottled water and so hydrates your body more thoroughly. Even animals love it! You will have less hassle when it comes to cleaning and you will have no parts to separate and clean compared to a juicer.
