Snowed again last night and we won’t be above freezing for at least the next several days. Makes everything pretty and white.
So I’ve done a bit of reading today,
Boy is alkaline water and health a charged subject, You have people on one side saying it’s good for you and of course on the other side people saying it is not and comparing alkaline antioxidant water to snake oil. Interesting that most of the people against it, have never tried it. Like I told one magazine writer, It would be like me writing a book about being blind, oh sure I could close my eyes, does that qualify me ? Maybe I should write a book about being blind, what do you think. She even had some science people ‘water experts’ that she had talked to. Basically they said they could not find a reason for it to do anything, I don’t think they tried it either. Probably got their liquid from a Bar. That may be a bit harsh, sorry Jane. She and the experts did go on to say that getting your body a little on the alkaline side was good for you, What ? But not alkaline water ?
Than on the other side are the people that have tried the water and as you can well imagine all the glowing reports. We know too many people that have had great results and can do things now they could not before. So I went and found a couple experts of my own. Here is what they had to say,
Theodore Baroody D.C., N.D., Ph.D., Dipl. Acu. Author of the book Alkalize or Die “I have administered over 5000 gallons of this water for about every health situation imaginable. I feel that restructured alkaline water can benefit everyone. The countless names attached to illness do not really matter. What does matter is that they all come from the same root cause: too much tissue acid waste in the body.”
David S. Dyer N.M.D., Ph.D. “Even with good health, I don’t want to challenge my immune system every time I go to the tap for a drink of water. A recent research project using specially bred mice that have a weakened immune system had some astonishing results. One group of mice was given plain tap water resulting in an average life span of 235 days. A second group given restructured alkaline water had an average life span of 346 days. The restructured alkaline water significantly increased the second group’s life span and strengthened their immune system”.
Now everybody’s body is different, That is the neat thing about being able to let people try the water for awhile to make sure it works for them. What other product can you do that with ? I even made my wife get water from our neighbor for 3 months just to make sure there was no ‘faith healing’ at work here. I was not a water drinker at the time, just an arthritis sufferer.
Than I made the mistake of getting a cheap machine (no one told me Enagic had a very good $1480 machine) and all of her good results turned bad, fortunately when we got the machine we have now all her good results came back. And that may have a lot to do with some of the negative, is the leaching of the metals in the cheaper machine. But being everybody is different once in awhile we run across someone that it does not seem to do anything for, about 1 in 20.
