Water, That we are Drinking is killing us slowly and inevitably?

What’s the Big Deal About Water?

Water is so simple and so basic that it is easy to overlook when you consider the factors that determine health or illness.  Yet it is often the simplest factors that can make the biggest differences.  Water is the very foundation for life.  It makes up about 75% of your body.  Water cannot be overlooked if you intend to experience vibrant health.Water-and-the-human-body
Water is the basis for all your body fluids including blood, lymph, and digestive fluids. It is critical for the transportation and absorption of nutrients as well as for the elimination of waste. Water also regulates body temperature, it lubricates joints, it cushions organs, and it moistens tissues. These are the most obvious functions of water.  But water is critical at many other levels. It is involved in the transmission of signals throughout your body. When the amount or the quality of the water you drink is compromised, signals can become distorted or short circuited. Water also supports the helical spiral of the DNA.
Research indicates that the way water molecules are organized around DNA is an indication of aging and disease. Water is the largest single source of energy in the human body. Its movement, into and out of cells, produces a significant amount of energy that’s why one of the first symptoms of dehydration is often fatigue.

Water is not just H²O.

Isn’t bottled water just purified water? Not all water is the same, and bottled water may not be as healthy as you think it is. The media has been filled with reports about what bottled water contains, but rarely mentions the pH or ORP.

know that the + numbers for ORP mean that the liquid is oxidizing, and negative – numbers means that it is an anti-oxidant. pH is neutral at 7.0, acidic below that, and alkaline above that.

Note: pH and ORP readings vary from sample to sample. Tap water is not always neutral (7.03 and can vary from location to location. Ionized, alkaline water reading is based on water from Southern California, and will vary with the quality of the source water. For instance, it has been measured as high as -700 in Utah, and as low as -250 in Oregon. Prices vary from location to location.

In addition to acidity and alkalinity, pH also refers to voltage, but the scale in this case ranges from -400 to +400 millivolts, with 0 (zero) in the middle. Moving down the scale from 0 into the negative range indicates increasing levels of health, while moving up the scale into the positive range indicates increasing dysfunction. Healthy adults normally measure -20 millivolts (mV) of energy, which trans- lates to a pH of 7.35. Children, young adults, and athletes commonly measure -30 mV of energy. Problems occur when a body’s voltage drops below the necessary operating level of -20 mV. Thus at -15 mV, a person is tired. At -10 mV, he/she is sick.
At -5 mV organs are no longer able to function properly. Problems resulting from continued drops in voltage include chronic pain, a decrease in oxygen levels, and infections. (Note: Infections continue to increase damage by feeding on healthy cells.) Remember, moving up this scale into the positive range increases vulnerability to illness. At +30 mV, the cellular electrical system malfunctions, reversing cellular polarity (the way electricity is conducted through cells). Damage also occurs to DNA, and cancer is able to gain a foothold in the body and grow.

Problems with Commonly Used Waters

Tap water

Tap water is a healthier option than soft drinks. But according to the Environmental Working Group, there have been 315 pollutants found in America’s tap water since 2004, and over half of these pollutants are completely unregulated and can legally exist in any amount.

At the current levels of contamination, the public is starting to question the quality of tap water and wonders if it is safe enough to drink. Based on these facts, it’s no wonder that the demand for Electrolyzed reduced water is constantly increasing.

Bottled water

Bottled water is not necessarily healthier than tap water and yet it costs much more! Although associated with healthy water, bottled water is not guaranteed to be any healthier than tap water. Often the only difference is the added minerals which have no proven health benefits.bottled-water
A four-year study by the Natural Resources Defense Council shows that 1/3 of the bottled water tested contains levels of contamination which exceed allowable limits. Bottled water can also be slightly acidic, which may affect your body’s pH balance. Finally, the environmental impact caused by the production and disposal of plastic bottles is harmful to our ecosystem.

Reverse Osmosis Water (RO water)

Reverse Osmosis, commonly referred to as RO, is a process where you demineralize or deionize water by pushing it under pressure through a semi-permeable Reverse Osmosis Membrane.iso-ro5
Reverse Osmosis is a filtering process which may be effective in areas that do not receive municipally treated water and is commonly used in bottled water facilities. The problem with this process is that dangerous chemicals like pesticides, herbicides, and chlorine are molecularly smaller than water and can pass freely through the filter. Reverse osmosis removes healthy, naturally occurring water minerals.
These minerals not only provide good taste; they also serve a vital function in the body’s system. When stripped of these minerals, water can be unhealthy. Also, 2-3 gallons of water are wasted for every gallon of purified water produced.
ACIDOSIS is the basic foundation of all disease. We need to understand the simple process of alkalizing our body and the important role a properly alkalized body plays in restoring and maintaining our overall health. Our glands and organs function properly in exact proportion to the amount of alkaline and acid levels in our system.

THE IMPACT OF ACIDOSIS ON YOUR ORGANS:

 

HEARTSTOMACHLIVERPANCREASSMALL INTESTINESKIDNEYSCOLONLYMPHATIC SYSTEM
human-circulatory-system-heart-501752The heart is one of the most alkaline-dependent organs in the body. It is partly enervated by the vagus nerve which
functions best in an alkaline environment. Correct heartbeat is altered by acid wastes. These wastes rob the blood
of proper oxygenation and degeneration of the heart follows. An alkaline system creates an ideal heart function.
stomachDigestive difficulties (belching, bloating, sensitivity at the waist, intestinal gas, regurgitation, hiccups, lack or limitation
of appetite, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, colic in children) may indicate vagus nerve problems and possible
hiatus hernia syndrome, which can produce acid residue throughout the system. Hiatus hernia can quickly reduce
necessary hydrochloric acid in the stomach. Without proper hydrochloric acid breakdown of foods,
the foods become too acidic.
asThe liver has over three hundred functions, including processing acid toxins from the blood and producing numerous
alkaline enzymes for the system and is your first line of defense against any poisons. All the nourishment obtained through
the gastrointestinal tract enters the blood by way of the liver. The load on the liver is much heavier when acid waste products
are constantly floating in the blood. If the liver becomes too congested with protein acid wastes, death is imminent.
Pancreas2The pancreas is highly dependent on correct alkaline diet. All aspects of pancreatic function reduce excess acidity and
regulate blood sugar balance. To have proper blood sugar balance, you must maintain a primarily alkaline-forming diet.
7370The Peyer’s Patches, in the upper portion of the small intestines are crucial to life. They are essential for proper
assimilation of food and producing lymphocytes for the lymphatic system’s wide ranging nodal network. They also
produce large amounts of the enzyme “chyle”, which is a major alkalizing substance. The uninterrupted flow of chyle
into the system is crucial. Too much acid waste production from acid-forming foods is a great burden on the Peyer’s
Patches, which lessens the production of chyle.
kidney-health-stones-chronic-renal-disease-detox-cleanseIn an adult, about 1 liter of blood per minute passes through the kidneys. By executing their primary duty, the kidneys keep the blood alkaline and extract acid. Kidneys that are over-stressed with too much acidity create kidney stones,
which are composed of waste acid cells and mineral salts that have become gummed together in a waste acid
substance. Therefore, by
reducing acid-forming products from entering the body, the chances are better
that you can avoid this painful condition.
colon_cancer_stagesThe colon must be kept clean of accumulated acid wastes. Poisons collect on the colon walls and in cases of diarrhea or constipation will harden and reabsorb into the bloodstream. Good bowel action (complete elimination) must be done at least 2 times per day.
lymphatic_system_gloria_gilbereThere are 600-700 lymph glands in the body. Lymph fluid carries nutrition to the cells and removes acid waste products.
Lymph
fluid flows best in an alkaline environment. When the body is overly acidic, it slows, creating one of the most
chronic, long-term,
life-threatening situations. Gradually, the lymph dries and begins to form very tiny to very large
adhesions throughout the tissues. These adhesions can interfere not only with lymph fluid but with blood flow as well.
Hindered lymph flow increases tissue acid storage. Not drinking enough purified water will also slow the lymph. Waste
products fromfoods that are not properly digested are reabsorbed into general circulation via the lymphatic ducts of the
small intestine. In addition, bowel movements that do not completely clear the body of its daily poisons are also
reabsorbed.

 

Here’s What The Experts Have To Say:

“The drinking of chlorinated water has finally been officially linked to an increased incidence of colon cancer. An epidemiologist at Oak Ridge Associated Universities completed a study of colon cancer victims and non-cancer patients and concluded that the drinking of chlorinated water for 15 years or more was conducive to a high rate of colon cancer.”
Health Freedom News, January/February 1987
“Long-term drinking of chlorinated water appears to increase a person’s risk of developing bladder cancer as much as 80%,” according to a study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. Some 45,000 Americans are diagnosed every year with bladder cancer.
St. Paul Dispatch & Pioneer Press, December 17, 1987
“Although concentrations of these carcinogens are low…it is precisely these low levels which cancer scientists believe are responsible for the majority of human cancers in the United States.” Report Issued By The Environmental Defense Fund
St. Paul Dispatch & Pioneer Press, December 17, 1987
