University lecturer and author of The Chemistry Of
Success, says: "Drinking four to six glasses of
alkaline water a day will help to neutralize over
acidity and over time will help to restore your
buffering ability. Alkaline water should be used when
conditions of over acidity develop, such as cold, flu or
bronchitis. Like vitamins C, E and Beta Carotene,
alkaline water acts as an antioxidant because of its
excess supply of free electrons. This can help the body
against the development of heart disease, strokes,
immune dysfunctions, and other common ailments."
Author of The Tao of Detox says:
"Drinking alkaline water is a great way to neutralize
and flush out all of the toxins and acids that drain
from the tissues and bodily fluids, and to quickly
rehydrate the body and keep the blood alkaline."
Anti-aging expert and author of 'Grow Youthful',
"Increasing your consumption of good quality tap water
or filtered water can transform your health and play a
central role in the healing of virtually all
degenerative diseases. However, alkaline water has
profound long-term effects because it alkalizes your
body and provides an effective antioxidant."
Author of "Youthing" says that "by drinking alkaline
water, the aging process can be reversed and the wastes
can be reduced in the long-term to a level of a much
younger person. The functions of the organs can be

Microwater has been developed in Japan, when researchers studying people
who drank water from certain fast-moving, rocky mountain streams noticed
that they enjoyed extraordinarily good health. Microwater emulates this
naturally occurring water with a higher pH level, a different structure,
and different electrical properties than regular water. Drinking
Microwater raises your cellular pH and fights off the free radicals
which would otherwise damage the prostate as well as general health. (As
you'll learn in Chapter 6, free radicals are like cellular "buzz saws"
that rip through healthy tissue, destroying everything in their wake.
Keeping free radicals under control is vital.) Using a small device
attached to your faucet, you can make Microwater at home."
Water is made up of H2O molecules, which
are in turn composed of two hydrogen
atoms and one oxygen atom bonded together. But the H2O molecules are not
completely stable; they will break up into smaller H and OH molecules.
The positively charged H's and the negatively charges OH's can combine
with calcium, potassium, or other substances in the water, creating
various chemical reactions. If water has more of the positively charged
H's it will become acidic, but if the scales tilt in favor of the
negatively charged OH's it will be alkaline (basic). Many of the wastes
that clog the body are acidic, especially those that come from our foods
and soft drinks. The body's internal cleansing mechanisms depend on an
abundance of water around the clock.
Unable to process and
eliminate the acidic wastes, the body often stores them in the heart,
liver, colon, pancreas, or other parts of the body. As the acidic wastes
accumulate, the body and bloodstream become overly acidic, and the
delicate pH balance in body fluids, tissues, and cells is upset, leading
to heart disease, cancer, elevated blood pressure, obesity, arthritis,
diabetes, and many other ailments. Drinking the alkaline Microwater
helps the body clear out the acidic wastes and restore the cellular pH
balance to normal. Microwater also fights off the free radicals that
would otherwise damage the prostate and general health. You can make
Microwater at home, using a small device attached to your
faucet.....Remember: cancer cannot live in a pH-balanced cellular

Author, Reverse Aging
"Here is the simple process of aging. Every living cell
within our body creates waste products. The nutrients
from our food are delivered to each cell and they burn
with oxygen to provide energy for us to live. The burned
nutrients are the waste products. The food that is
either good or bad for you is determined by the amount
and quality of the wastes produced: toxic, acid,
alkaline, etc. Most of our cells go through metabolism
and old dead cells become waste products."
"These waste products must be discharged from our body.
In fact, our body tries its best to dispose of them
through urine and perspiration. Virtually all waste
products are acidic; that is why urine is acidic and the
skin surface is also acidic. The problem is that, due to
several reasons, our body cannot get rid of 100% of the
waste products it produces."
"The main reason for this is our lifestyle. We,
therefore, spend more time producing waste products than
processing them." For more quotes from Sang Whang click

In his book,
The pH Miracle says it this way:
"The pH level of our internal fluids affects every cell
in our bodies. Extended acid imbalances of any kind are
not well tolerated...Indeed, the entire metabolic
process depends on a balanced internal alkaline
environment. A chronically over-acid pH corrodes body
tissue, slowly eating into the 60,000 miles of veins and
arteries like acid eating into marble. If left
unchecked, it will interrupt all cellular activities and
functions, from the beating of your heart to the neural
firing of your brain. ()... Over-acidification
interferes with life itself leading to all sickness and

be rewarded with the secrets to permanent health. We can

bodies. Potentially harmful invaders, then, will have

He says that bad diets such as meat and potatoes, fried
foods, soft drink colas, and sugars build up acid salts
in the body. Often these deposits, by having to be
stored away from the blood flow, can remain in the body
for decades. He recommends the consumption of ionized
alkaline water, which will slowly and gently wash these
salts away. To read Dr. Hidemitsu Hayashi detailed

"...people with more acidic blood were more likely to be
ill. He defined a pH range of 7.4 to 7.5 to be
associated with good health. When foods are metabolized,
acids are produced which are neutralized by the alkaline
salts (carbonates) of calcium, magnesium, potassium and
sodium. Foods containing chlorine, phosphorous, sulfur
and nitrogen, animal products and refined carbohydrates
tend to be acid forming."

holistically rather than symptom-by-symptom. We need to
change the way our body functions at its most basic

why alkaline water is so effective; with water
comprising 60-70% of a middle aged body, changing water
pH has the ability to reduce acidity almost immediately.
The advantage of using one of our advanced alkaline
water ionizers is that you always have the choice of
alkalinity level, so you can use the alkalizer as a
complete balancing tool. An extended acid-producing
activity (excess work or physical activity, stress etc)
can be responded to immediately.
