As a trained food safety instructor and health coach, I find it important to note that there are multiple ways to kill germs. Some are more safe and efficacious than others depending on the circumstances. Quite often some of the officially “approved” ingredients in popular disinfectants are known to pose health hazards.
Like President Trump, I believe that it is important to think outside the box when it comes to addressing health issues.
We teach in food safety classes that time and temperature can have both beneficial and hazardous implications, when it comes to bacterial growth in food — cooked, or otherwise. In healthcare, there are multiple modes that may be utilized to ensure that a given situation is sterilized or germ-free. Of course, high temperatures kill infectious germs immediately. How many of you remember a few short weeks ago when the mainstream media crucified the president for suggesting that some PPE or personal protective equipment could or should be sanitized for re-use.
It is this type of thinking outside of the box, this president understands, that brought hydroxychloroquine into the crosshairs of the medical community as a treatment option for the KungFlu, AKA Covid-19.
Four Powerful Properties of Ionized Water
There are three properties that make Ionized Kangen Water from Enagic stand out from any other water in the world:
Disinfectant — antibacterial/antiviral
Micro-Clustering — enhanced hydration
Alkalinity — promoting balanced blood chemistry
Anti-oxidation properties — supporting optimal health
Each of these properties on their own offer significant health benefits. However, harnessing all four together produces an incredibly healthy powerhouse.
The process begins with normal, filtered tap water, passes through the pre-filter of the Ionizer, where additional contaminants such as chlorine are removed (we recommend custom pre-filtration based on your home water quality). Next, the water passes through a series of electrically charged plates, where a positive and negative charge, physically transforms the ions of the water into two parts, one is acidic, and the other is alkaline. Depending upon the power settings on your particular Ionizer machine, a variety of different properties of water may be produced. (Not all Ionizers are created equal)
One option that most folks are not aware of is that very low PH water can be used as an effective sanitizer. It is currently approved for use in many healthcare and foodservice environments. As a trained food safety instructor and a health coach, I routinely recommend this for multiple applications.
Strong Acidic Water 2.5 pH works as an anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal agent. This water kills bacteria including viruses on an average of within 30 seconds. Because of this, the water is stronger than many popular disinfectants and its use is multi-purpose. Strong Acidic water was approved for disinfecting food products by the FDA in June 2002, in accordance with the Food Safety Law, under the name of hypochlorous acid water. I like to use large spray bottles for the Strong Acidic water because it makes it easier to use on the skin, countertops, produce, etc. It is best to store this water in dark containers and refrigerate it.
Use 2.5 pH water if you have an open wound such as a cut.
As a result, the disinfecting of the wound is complete, promoting faster healing.
Gargle with 2.5 pH to completely disinfect your mouth.
People with gum infections can effectively fight back by gargling once a day with strong acidic water. You can also disinfect your toothbrush.
You can use a spray bottle with strong acidic water to sanitize your hands so that you can perfectly disinfect your hands
Use 2.5 pH water on your cutting boards, counters, and pans to completely eliminate bacteria.
Disinfect your toilet, shower, and bath with this water so that they are free of bacteria.
Children all to often put toys in their mouths. With strong acidic 2.5 pH water, you can ensure that the toys are perfectly clean and free of bacteria.
Skin disorders such as eczema and psoriasis can be helped by a simple treatment with strong acidic water. Through the complete disinfecting that purges all bacteria, the healing process can begin.
In my last article, I pointed to an article out of Stanford University that showed that water molecules actually clump together, forming large clusters. The shape of the water molecule and its attraction to other water molecules account for many of its distinct properties. When in their liquid state, they are very close together because of their attraction to one another. In essence, the oxygen of one water molecule attracts the hydrogen molecule of another. Although there is no actual molecular bond, these attractions are strong enough to form the semi-cohesive groupings we view as water. Most house tap water and bottled water is comprised of clusters containing between 16-60 molecules, these are known as Macro-Clusters.
During the ionization process, these clusters are actually separated into much smaller, micro-clustered groupings, containing approximately 4-6 water molecules. This smaller grouping of water molecules is able to be absorbed into the cellular structures of our bodies much more effectively, resulting in more rapid and effective hydration.
Alkaline water helps balance the body’s pH, which tends to be acidic because of our high acid food diet, stress, and exposure to environmental toxins such as smog. Alkalize your body pH from acidic to alkaline pH, because cancer and many other illnesses cannot live in alkaline environments. Alkaline is the “normal” state of healthy persons.
Most of us don’t realize the importance of maintaining a balanced pH in their bodies. The pH level of our blood is among the most vital and sensitive in our ecology of health. Optimal blood pH is 7.365, with very slight room for movement in either direction. An imbalance in our blood pH can lead to significant issues and health concerns.
The various systems of our bodies are quite sophisticated. And since the pH levels of our blood are so vitally important, when pH levels are at potentially harmful levels, the body will cannibalize pH rich resources from less vital resources in our bodies, in order to maintain balanced chemistry.
High alkaline, ionized water helps to offset the dangers of pH imbalance caused by other environmental factors,. This helps our bodies to replenish the necessary alkalinity and assist in bring back balance to our internal pH chemistry.
Ionizing water can produce an amazing (measurable) amount of potential health-enhancing antioxidants. This antioxidant nature is because, in the ionization process of disrupting the molecule clusters, it releases active hydrogen molecules, which serve as a natural antioxidant when it interacts with your body.
According to the experts at Harvard University, “Antioxidant” is a general term for any compound that can counteract unstable molecules called free radicals that damage DNA, cell membranes, and other parts of cells. Because free radicals lack a full complement of electrons, they steal electrons from other molecules and damage those molecules in the process.
Antioxidants neutralize free radicals by giving up some of their own electrons. In making this sacrifice, they act as a natural “off” switch for the free radicals. This helps break a chain reaction that can affect other molecules in the cell and other cells in the body. But it is important to recognize that the term “antioxidant” reflects a chemical property rather than a specific nutritional property.
The active hydrogen in electrolyzed water contains an extra electron which is able to donate a free radical, which then neutralizes the free radical, rendering it harmless.
As mentioned above, when tested with specialized equipment, the antioxidant properties of any liquid can be measured. In this testing, we are checking for the “Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP). The lower the ORP reading, the higher the antioxidant potential. High pH Ionized water typically has a range of -300 to -700 or lower.
Most water has a positive ORP reading, so it is oxidizing. Generally, tap water has an ORP from +200 to +600mv. Bottled water tends to have high ORP levels of more than +400mv. High pH/Alkaline ionized water is different because it has a negative ORP reading, making it anti-oxidizing. This enables it to give some bonus electrons, which help counteract free radicals that create aging and disease in the body.
You can gain the benefits of anti-oxidizing water at home by putting your tap water through a water ionizer machine. In addition to changing the pH level of your tap water, these machines change the ORP to offer the benefits of antioxidants.
