Discover Ionized Water, How it can Cleanse You and Help You Absorb more Prana

Being the most abundant substance on the surface of our world and in our bodies, water's importance to our health and well-being is overwhelmingly obvious. I find it essential to drink plenty of water between meals and especially during a short fast or when I am too busy to eat (which is quite often!) One can harm oneself if one eats concentrated carbohydrate or high protein food to the exclusion of fruit, vegetables, raw juices and water. One can get quite dehydrated and put a great strain on one's kidneys and delicate acid/alkaline balance without sensing it, especially when older. Negatively ionized water works best to quench thirst and rehydrate the cells with the added benefits of having powerful antioxidant activity and a strong alkaline effect. By drinking large quantities of ionized water (an abundance of alkaline mineral water is beneficial to health and well-being anyway) and by incorporating it into to one's daily diet by blending it with vegetables & fruit or making nut milks with it, the "charge" of the water and pH (power of hydrogen) levels could have a good influence on one's health and quality of life. Whenever it is used as part of a recipe, the food is wonderfully enhanced. Ionization of your water is of vital importance.

I actually bought two of the Mavello ionizers featured through this website at Being a major health breakthrough for me personally, I was so impressed by the benefits, I wondered what would happen if I ran water through one and then through a second ionizer. It turns out to be even more concentrated and even more powerful! There would not be enough water pressure for three ionizers but it is possible to run tap water through two.

I have recently discovered that the awesome benefits of manufacturing my own "micro-water" can be further enhanced yet again by adding Royal Body Care's "Microhydrin" (negatively charged hydrogen) to negatively ionized water, thereby creating an incredibly super-powerful "miracle" water. Being the world's most concentrated and powerful antioxidant you can get in a capsule, Microhydrin must be mixed with and consumed with at least 8 onces of water to be effective. The combination of Microhydrin and negatively ionized alkaline water (a perfect marriage!) seem to result in even greater benefits of awesome energy, inner clarity and well-being. The most remarkable thing of all is that it gives me greater freedom from the need to snack and unnecessary food cravings. I still must eat from time to time, but not as often. Alkalized, negatively charged water (not just alkaline) reduces the need for food yet increases one's energy. This combination could be a good fasting/purification method toward spiritual enlightenment and a possible step toward breatharianism. I must caution one never to get too enthusiastic and run away with this idea before making sure that when the body does feel hungry, it is fed a complete, living, fully supplemented and nutritionally complete, fully balanced superfood diet.

The highest concentrations of ionized water yield a cloudy, oxygen rich substance of the very beneficial and desirable negatively charged hydroxyl ions with the alkaline minerals, calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, and manganese depending on how much was present in the tap water to begin with (can vary from location to location). These negatively charged molecules and minerals are needed by the body to help maintain its healthy, natural alkaline state without sacrificing bone density and dental health which can often happen after consuming acid forming (calcium leaching) food such as meat, bread, and carbonated beverages which contain carbonic acid and often lactic and phosphoric acid as well. Most diseases love acidic food while hating an overall alkaline input into the body as would happen from drinking regularly abundant amounts of alkalized water. Therefore it becomes much easier to remain healthy and free of stress. I have found it a major help in reducing anxiety disorder caused by cerebral lactic acid sensitivity. What could be a better buffer for lactic acid than alkalized water? If you need to improve your athletic ability, ionized water should really help too! Another benefit I noticed after several weeks of nearly living on both Microhydrin and concentrated ionized water, is perfect digestion and perfect microflora. To see the best countertop water ionizers for your money that I know of, you might be very interested in purchasing a Water for Life USA water Ionizer or you can construct your own for very little cost!


"Living on Light" Requires Multiple Advanced Stages of Careful Preparation and Years of Mind/Body/Spirit Purification.

One might first go to the following website for fasting for spiritual awareness: Fasting on Your Spiritual Path to God - Fasting Rules for Beginners which can be a great help in understanding when fasting is right for you. The overwhelming majority of "beginning" breatharians are simply those who are fasting for a long period of time. Most still eat when they have to, but of course they are not always inclined to admit that! My approach would be to first refine and develop one's self spiritually, always with the attainment of wholeness being the first priority. Fasting should only happen naturally as a consequence of having successfully achieved many years of deep states of yoga and suspension of metabolism.

One should avoid overeating anyway - I believe in moderation of all things, especially food! Problems such as gas, bloating, and tiredness can occur if you allow yourself to get too full. Even the smallest amount of undigested superfluous food is an immediate source for "allergic" sensitivity reactions, bacteriological and/or fungal toxins that can cause a variety of mostly unpleasant symptoms. "Systematic under-eating" as it is called, can bring you the best of health, energy, clarity of mind, calmness, and spirituality. Some advanced spiritual beings can almost entirely go without food as other, much subtler energy systems beyond what we term as physical take over, feeding body cells from various pranic energy sources.

IONIZED ALKALINE WATER could be a major and essential help for increasing metabolic efficiency and energy, because of the vitality, hydration, and healing effect it provides by quenching free radicals and increasing the ability of mitochondria in cells to function effectively. The supplementation of CQ 10 could even further enhance this process. Those individuals living a pure lifestyle, along with regular (daily) water fasting on alkaline negatively ionized water
tend to become more appreciative of energy from prana, bioplasma or orgone energy. It becomes surprisingly easy to get by on only one meal a day when regularly consuming large amounts of negatively ionized (alkalized) water. Go here for more info.

Increase your ability to live on prana with "living" water! - Ionized (alkalized) water can, through its ability to flush out and or neutralize acidic toxins, be an excellent source of energy and "pranic nourishment." Systematic under-eating and eventual progression toward a "living on light" diet would be very difficult without first following through an overlapping series of logical steps in combination with advanced spiritual development, meditation and breath control: 1) health food "vegetarian," 2) raw food & antioxidants, 3) high antioxidant raw food liquidarian, 4) negatively ionized water and air, 5) ojas, prana from nature, sunlight and astral substances, 6) mental and causal energies, and 7) celestial being (light).

However I must warn that for nearly everyone, the above listed evolutionary changes as becoming a "Light" eater never occur overnight nor is it for everyone, but only for a select few who have advanced yogic/spiritual tendencies. Even Jasmuheen still has to eat very lightly or drink something from time to time. Her constitution, way of thinking, her highly evolved state of loving spiritual awareness and divinization of her body cells due to her lifetime connection with spirit has allowed her to enjoy and even thrive on long periods of fasting and/or extremely light eating. Jasmuheen is a beautiful example of spirit transforming matter into a finer expression of divine love and of living mainly off pranic forces.


Even If Breatharianism Has Been Attained By Only A Few People
One Should Still Learn All One Can From It And Not Be Closed Minded

Only a few but rapidly growing number of persons so far in recent history actually became breatharians. Such an extraordinary accomplishment as being able to live on prana instead of food is available mainly to those who have gone through all the required stages of this process, fully mastered yoga or at least developed some sort of a spiritual connection and often live in a remote, pristine environment loaded with vital atmospheric or bioplasmic energy.

According to Jericho Sunfire, a genuine breatharian and founder of the Inediate Society, one needs to take at at least fifteen years to make the proper transition. He states one first must eat only vegetarian and vegan for the first five years, then five years 100% raw food, then the last five years fruitarian and liquidarian. The process must be G-R-A-D-U-A-L and that is the key. Far too many get the wrong information and try to be breatharian overnight, or in too short of a time period, making themselves sick, way too skinny and even getting themselves hospitalized or worse, dead. The human body can do almost anything if given enough time to adapt to whatever change forced apon it. It is only when not allowing enough time for the transition to occur naturally that one gets into a mess.

Breatharians have and do exist; they are an important part of our spiritual history, and such abilities of living solely or mainly on prana is often confined to saints and yoga masters who meditate in remotely isolated mountain caves, shelters, etc. Unfortunately most of them are lost to legend and folklore, no longer available for scientific observation and proof.

The Indian spiritual master, Prahlad Jani, for example was proven several times over and beyond a shadow of doubt regarding his ability to live only on prana. Amazingly, and most fortunately there seems to be a recent surge (as of 2010) in the number of breatharians living today from all parts of the globe and all walks of life in both urban and non-urban areas.

I still believe however, that living in a vast area of deep forest bioplasmic (orgone) energies, botanical aromas and pollens is essential for lasting success or at least some deep connection with the Source or God energy. That is how delicate the process of living without food seems to be. It is essential for one's health and well-being anyway to be surrounded by wild, living plants, because the pollens and scents from trees, wild-flowers, herbs, etc. can be essential for preventing depression and even cancer. That is why I am so concerned about the continuing existence of rain forests and other natural places. Nature is infinitely delicate and infinitely subtle!

In Paramhansa Yogananda's Autobiography of a Yogi, he writes about the non-eating saint, Theresa Neumann who lived in a small village surrounded by plants in greenhouse like conditions, the breatharian yogi, Giri Bala who lived in a remote Indian forest, and the etherial Mahavatar Babaji of the Himalayan mountains who not only was above eating, but also physical existence! Because most of humanity has become so isolated from nature's profound subtleties, mainstream science and religion has, very sadly, grown extremely closed minded against and quite cynical regarding any such possiblities today. They will, however be forced someday (hopefully in the near future) to realize how wrong they have been!

Please Don't Die Trying too Hard to be Breatharian!

Many are the stories of those who have died or become very ill trying to be a breatharian too quickly. Whenever one chooses to be a breatharian without first mastering a breathless state, or at least some other form of spiritual connection to Source Energy, becoming properly prepared in certain ways such as a gradual transition lasting at least fifteen years, living a pure lifestyle, getting intimately involved with the love and nourishing energy of God(dess), and without becoming fully connected with a guru, spirit guides, etc., starvation and/or death are usually the end result! Even after achieving all of the above, one may still need to eat occasionally!

The tragedy is when an average person (often living in a polluted urban environment) reads one or two paperback books and/or listens to a few lectures on breatharianism then thinks he or she can simply stop eating without the consequences of starvation and death. Another danger is the one who is convinced nutrition is no longer important, and so becomes careless with one's nutritional needs either by omitting certain essential foods or even worse, replacing healthy food with junk food! This is NOT to say that fasting is always wrong or incorrect, as fasting can be the perfect thing to do (for deepest meditations and spiritual/psychic development) between times of eating complete, fully balanced natural meals while hopefully living in a natural environment where the air is perfectly pure, full of life-tronic energy (orgone or bioplasmic), and filled with a wide variety of highly beneficial botanical pollens and plant aromas.

100% breatharianism, even though it might be possible under the right conditions, would be extremely unlikely for the average person to attain overnight especially if in any way cut off from nature. How would breatharian still be possible? If living in a city, town or any such urban area one would definitely need to first move as far away from civilization as possible and into a pristine mountain or rain forest environment (a dry desert with none or sparse vegetation, even though remote, might not adequately provide the ideal conditions either) and change one's job or lifestyle to something more of a farmer, botanist, writer, psychic, and/or yoga teacher. It would be helpful to also spend many years perfecting and mastering the suspension of breath through highly evolved diets, celibacy, meditation and advanced yoga. Attaining a certain stage of samadhi, may also increase the possiblity of living without food. Having a strong connection with Spirit such as some way of communicating with spiritual guides and/or gurus from the spiritual realms would also be quite helpful, providing the advanced guidance, provision and help often essential for such an extreme endeavor as breatharianism.

Can Quantum Physics and the Bible Help One Understand Where the Energy Comes From To Sustain Anyone Who Practices Inedia?

Those raised on materialistic mainstream education would tend to think that anyone who either believes in breatharianism and especially those who would try to achieve breatharianism to be a real nut case, or worse! This unfortunate fact is because they don't realize that there is a universal force, power or principle (the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle) that maintains the underlying foundation of all energy in the universe. Biology has evolved at least in part to have the ability to take advantage of this energy. The spiritual or most subtle and/or energetic aspects of one's self can convert some of this energy into physical energy especially if living a yogic lifestyle in pristine natural surroundings and especially if given the years required to train one's cells to become even more tuned to this internal zero-point energy. Even then, the extent one can actually fast may dramatically vary from individual to individual depending on one's genes, background, spiritual evolution and level of yogic development.

Whenever a sensitive person sits out in the wilderness in a very quiet space filled with pranic vitality (universal energy reduced to more biologically assimilative forms of prana via plants and trees) one may begin to hear a very soft humming sound deep inside the inner ear and feel immensely blissful, peaceful and energized. The phenomenon of this inner "music" is called the "Om" sound by most yogis. This sound is the interaction of prana and the chakras. It is the resonate "ringing" of the chakras in vibrational harmony with this universal Zero Point Energy or Holy Spirit.

St. Matthew 4:4 claims: "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God." Here, I interpret this scripture as referring to the primary vibrations of creation (again, the universal Zero Point Energy or Holy Spirit) where nourishing, healing energy "bubbles up" from the finer, more conscious levels of reality as sources of energy for the creation and maintenance of causal, astral and physical spheres and all the beings that reside within them. The "Word" of God is a source of inner, healing nourishment, bliss and higher consciousness for all. Jesus found great comfort and nourishment in the way of higher chakras from this subtle Divine Sound current during his long fast in the desert.

In a wilderness area, vast amounts of subtle earth and atmospheric energy currents can flow unheeded by the disturbing forces, counter-currents, and disrupting thought patterns of buildings, worldly people and civilization. Christ was subtle enough to draw upon this pranic energy as a source of cellular electrical energy. But until we can fully benefit from this remarkable yet very natural way to obtain energy, an extremely efficient metabolism has to be established. Learn more about tuning metabolism for pranic nourishment (not starvation!) here.

Appreciate And Value Teachers And Practitioners Of Breatharianism
Yet Please Stay Away from Hunger!

100% satisfaction, divine love and comfort are the road signs to follow. For those who feel called to do so, and only a very few people are (must be highly spiritually evolved), the transition toward "living on light" or "pranic nourishment" is meant to be a lifetime spiritual attunement process that is 100% comfortable leading to greater love, healing, liberating inner strength, magical inspiration and excitement! Conservation of vital energies, yoga, meditation, and deep, breathless samadhi should also be a natural part of this life-long transition.

Having and enjoying the ability to live on pranic bliss is extremely healthy, beautiful and wondrous, however FORCING ONESELF TO UNDERGO RESTRICTED DIETS, EXTREME HUNGER AND CRAVINGS IS NOT ONLY UNNECESSARY, IT COULD CAUSE SERIOUS METABOLIC DAMAGE OR EVEN DEATH. Common sense and a healthy respect for one's body and soul's true needs should be everyone's priority. Some of the warning signs one is going about breatharian the wrong way and/or too fast: rapid heartbeat, rapid shallow breathing (breath should be slow and steady with periods of breath suspension into the bliss of God(dess), loss of strength, wasting away, dehydration, unpleasant moods, depression, anxiety, confusion and extreme tiredness.

On the other hand, when properly developed and prepared, one can use alkalized water fasting, deep meditation on the inner sounds of God (Om), and the absorption of the Zero Point Energy or Holy Spirit as vital tools in discovering the "wholeness" we all long for.

If the truth seeker longs to experience breatharianism it is NEVER to be done overnight nor by simply eliminating vital foods, but through five years 100% vegetarian diet, five years 100% raw food diet, then five years fruitarian and liquidarian diets, deep meditation, pranic breathing and/or breath suspension, and connecting to the Holy Spirit or universal Source of pranic nourishment. I believe it is best to start breatharianism after one is long established in the eternal bliss of God realization and after being strongly guided to do so by Spirit in a very definite way.

The Miraculous Properties of Ionized Water - The Definitive Guide to the World's Healthiest Substance by Bob McCauley and CNC - Editorial Review - This book IS the definitive guide to the world's healthiest substance. Ionized water is one of the great health breakthroughs of all time and yet it has been almost entirely ignored in the West. Here, finally, is a book that says everything you will ever need to know about why you need to drink ionized water. --Ryan McDowell

Product Description - Water is our best defense against disease of every kind. Sixty percent or more of all chronic disease would be significantly reduced if people would simply keep themselves properly hydrated. To ionize means to gain or lose an electron. Essentially, the ionization process robs an electron from one molecule and donates, or transfers, it to another molecule. Both Alkaline and Acid Ionized Water have extraordinary properties and benefits, however, their respective uses could not be more different. We consume Alkaline Ionized Water and use the Acid Ionized Water on the outside of our bodies for acne, cuts, scrapes and rashes of all kinds. It kills bacteria on contact and encourages plant growth. The centerpiece of Alkaline Ionized Water are its antioxidant properties. It is miraculous that normal tap water can be instantly transformed into a strong antioxidant. Alkaline Ionized Water has two antioxidant qualities, its negative charge and the presence of hydroxyl ions which are free radical scavengers. The body is starved for electrons and Alkaline Ionized Water contains an abundance of them, which nullify free radicals in the body. One can thrive on half the normal intake of food as long as we consume high electron-rich nutrients. Alkaline Ionized Water is an extremely effective antioxidant because it is a liquid that has a small grouping of water molecule clusters and thus is more easily absorbed into the body where it can be of immediate use. Drinking Alkaline Ionized Water gives you energy through better hydration and alkalization of the body and by providing the body with oxygen. Because of the predominance of hydroxyl ions in Alkaline Ionized Water, the water becomes alkaline, meaning it has a high pH. The pH level can be adjusted with a water ionizer between 7.5 and 9.9, which is the highest pH that it should be consumed. All disease thrives in an acid environment in the body and will not flourish and thrive in an alkaline environment. If we acidify

Your Body's Many Cries for Water by Fereydoon Batmanghelidj - Editorial Reviews - Review - As a result of extensive research into the role of water in the body, the author, a medical doctor, believes that he has found chronic dehydration to be the cause of many conditions including asthma, allergies, arthritis, angina, migraine headaches, hypertension, raised cholesterol, chronic fatigue syndrome, multiple sclerosis, depression, and diabetes in the elderly.

According to Dr. Batmanghelidj, the body possesses many different thirst signals. A dry mouth is not a reliable indicator of your body's water needs. He describes a variety of more reliable ones, and helps you learn to understand when your body is calling for water. In this way, he claims you can prevent, treat, and cure a variety of conditions of ill health, at no cost, with what he calls nature's miracle medicine: Water. The author explains how much water one needs to drink a day to stay healthy, and why tea, coffee, and sodas are not good substitutes for water.

Having been a clinical nutritionist and raw foodist for 35 years, I recommend this natural health book without any reservations. --Fred Bisci, MD

Product Description - The body can cure itself of any disease. If you are sick it is because you allow yourself to remain sick. Hydration, alkalization and detoxification are the three keys to preventing and curing us of any disease. Nothing is more important to the body than water and there is no better water for the human body than Ionized Water. It is a powerful antioxidant, as well as extremely alkalizing, hydrating and detoxifying. Fasting with water is the healthiest thing we can do for the body. Spirulina and Chlorella are the two most powerful whole foods in the world. They are perfect proteins and have the broadest array of nutrients of any foods. We might be able to replace our traditional animal protein sources, meat, fish, eggs and dairy with these two nutraceuticals, which, like all raw foods, provide the body with the proper nutrition so the body can heal itself. Probiotics (acidophilus and bifidus) are friendly bacteria that help the body assimilate nutrients and keep the digestive tract clean and alkalized. They are crucial to human health and should be consumed with everything we eat. All cooked foods are acidic, poisonous and addictive. We eat them because we like their taste and because we have been conditioned all our lives to believe they are healthy for us. Raw foods are alkaline and rejuvenate the body by providing the body with nutrients that have not been either destroyed or chemically altered by cooking. Cooking is the greatest destroyer of our health. Raw foods contain enzymes which are responsible for every movement, action or thought of the human body and mind. Without enzymes, life would not be possible. Regular vigorous exercise is essential if we wish to achieve robust health. We should work each of our 650 muscles every day. Cultivating a positive mental attitude is also critical to our health. Self-doubt can destroy your efforts with the force of split atoms. Have faith in yourself and what you can achieve and a hero that others will want to follow will appear in your mirror one day. Great Health gives us confidence, vigor, purpose and even more importantly it gives us hope.

Confessions of a Body Builder, Rejuvenating the body with Spirulina, Chlorella, Raw Foods & Ionized Water by Bob McCauley - Product Description - I am not a body builder in the sense one usually thinks of a body builder. I do not sit in a gym with other muscular men and women and pump iron. While I do exercise vigorously everyday, the body building I refer to in the title of this book, and on the following pages, has to do with rejuvenating our bodies at the cellular level through the use of Nutrients and Ionized Water. What is accomplished by this is nothing short of slowing, if not reversing, the aging process. Much to my amazement, it can be done!

From the Author - I researched this book for over a year. I was introduced to these incredible whole foods, Spirulina and Chlorella over 4 years ago. As a vegetarian, I have never found a better source of protein, enzymes and other vital nutrients. I learned of Ionized Water 3 years ago and being in the bottled water business immediately saw its potential. However, I never imagined the powerful health and rejuvenation properties of Ionized Water. I'm living testiment to its great qualities. I've never felt better.

The Drinking Water Book: How to Eliminate the Most Harmful Toxins from Your Water by Colin Ingram - Editorial Reviews - From Library Journal - Should we be concerned about the quality of our drinking water? Absolutely, according to Ingram. In these days of heightened environmental concern, more people will be investigating their water supply. In layperson's terms, Ingram discusses potential pollutants and their sources. He mentions water testing but questions its usefulness as results are often unreliable. He offers ideas for reducing pollutants in the home water supply without spending alot of money and discusses virtually all the possible alternatives, from purchasing bottled water to using a home treatment system. Ingram outlines various water purification systems with details of how each one works and the advantages and disadvantages of each. He quotes prices; these will be outdated quickly but could at least be used for comparative purposes. Less technical than John Stewart's Drinking Water Hazards (LJ 7/90), Ingram's book is addressed to general audiences. Not all readers will share this level of interest in drinking water, but for those who do, this volume is infor mative. - Deborah Emerson , Monroe Community Coll. Lib., Rochester, N.Y. - Copyright 1991 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review - Drinking eight glasses of water a day may take inches off your waistline, but it could also take years off your lifeline. According to Colin Ingram, a scientific researcher/writer of 30 years, chances are you have poor quality drinking water flowing from your faucet. Water treatment today is focused on short-term health risks, instead of long-term health effects; no one knows what is a safe level of water pollution for any individual-not government health officials, not scientists, not doctors. The Drinking Water Book is a complete guide to safe drinking water. Colin's goal is to illuminate the potential problems of water, and to provide working solutions. He identifies the different kinds of pollutants, how to find out what's in your water, how purifiers work or don't work, and compares all types of bottled water. -- From The WomanSource Catalog & Review: Tools for Connecting the Community for Women; review by SH --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Reverse Aging by Sang Y. Whang - Product Description - Not science fiction, but a scientific fact! This book is the first common sense scientific explanation of the aging process and "how to" reverse it. The nutrients that we deliver to our cells burn with oxygen and become acidic wastes after giving energy to our body. The body tries its best to get rid of these acidic wastes through urine and perspiration. Unfortunately, our lifestyle, diet and environment prevent our body to get rid of all the wastes that it generates. Gradually, these leftover acidic wastes accumulate somewhere within our body. Since acid coagulates blood, the blood circulation near the waste areas becomes poor, causing all kinds of degenerative diseases to develop. The author defines the aging process as the accumulation of non-disposed acidic wastes within the body. According to this theory, the reduction of accumulated wastes is reverse aging. This book explains how some of the adult degenerative diseases are caused by too much acidic wastes, and describes the various scientific devices and methods to reduce these wastes without any harmful side effects. These devices and methods are being widely used in Japan. Alkaline water makers (water ionizers) have been in existence in Japan for more than 40 years. Many in the alternative health industry of water ionizers, magnet and far-infrared devices regard this book as the most comprehensive and up-to-date reference book of its kind in the English language. It is a "must read" for all who are health-conscious.

From the Publisher - Since it was first published in 1991, over 30,000 copies are in circulation, strictly by word of mouth. This edition is the latest printing (January 1998) with a new cover that reflects the importance of the balance of acidity and alkalinity. The contents have not been changed

The Acid-Alkaline Food Guide: A Quick Reference to Foods & Their Effect on pH Levels by Susan E. Brown and Larry Trivieri Jr. - Product Description - Over the last five years, there has been an explosion of bestselling acid/alkaline based diets. These have ranged from weight loss to diabetes management. While hundreds of thousands of people have gone on this diet that balances the pH level of your body, they have had to put up with the limited food guides contained in each book. Now, health experts Dr. Susan Brown and Larry Trivieri have created a complete resource for people wanting to widen their food choices. The Acid/Alkaline Food Guide offers dieters an easy-to-follow guide to the most common foods that influence your body's pH levels. The book begins by explaining what the acid/alkaline of your body has to do with the acid/alkaline influence of foods. It then explains how the pH of foods, once eaten, may change in your bodyŃas citric acid fruits, once digested, become alkaline. As complicated as this process is, the authors provide the guidelines for the analysis of the foods covered in the book. This section is then followed by a listing of thousands of foods and their acid/alkaline ranges. Included are insets and groups that can help the reader better direct their food searches. This is the first complete acid/alkaline food guide to include today's modern diet. It will quickly become the first resource to turn to when preparing meals or ordering food.

About the Author - Susan E. Brown, Ph.D., CCN is a medical anthropologist and New York State Certified Nutritionist. Dr. Brown is a clinician, researcher and author. She has over twenty years experience in clinical nutrition, bone health research and lay and health professional education. Susan E.

Water: For Health, for Healing, for Life: You're Not Sick, You're Thirsty! by F. Batmanghelidj - Editorial Reviews - From Publishers Weekly - The author, a physician trained in Iran (Your Body's Many Cries for Water), not only believes that drinking water is healthy, but makes extravagant claims for its curative powers. He recounts here how he first discovered the healing abilities of water, when he was a political prisoner more than 20 years ago. While incarcerated, he successfully treated with plain water the stress-induced peptic ulcers that afflicted some of his fellow prisoners. According to Batmanghelidj, most people rely on dry mouth to signal thirst and as a result are seriously dehydrated. He posits that symptoms like fatigue, anxiety or depression indicate dehydration, which may result in serious conditions such as asthma, hypertension, brain damage, cancer, constipation, allergies and obesity. In order to compensate for fluid lost through urination, respiration, and perspiration, Batmanghelidj suggests drinking a minimum of two quarts of plain water daily (not alcohol, caffeine beverages or juices). In order to maintain good health, he also advises ingesting half a teaspoon of salt to balance water intake. In addition, a diet consisting of 80% fruits and vegetables and 20% protein should be followed along with an exercise program. To back up his theories, the author presents a wealth of somewhat confusing medical data as well as patient anecdotes that testify to water as a cure for various diseases. Batmanghelidj does state, however, that those diagnosed with specific conditions should not stop taking their medications abruptly, nor should they embark on a water regime until they have consulted with their physician. This controversial program will have the greatest appeal for devotees of alternative medicine. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information, Inc.

What Every Athlete Needs to Know About Restructured Ionized Water by Wade T. Lightheart - Product Description - Once in a while a technology is introduced to the world that has dramatic effect on athletic performance. Athletes often challenge conventional methods by experimenting with breakthrough technologies in order to achieve excellence. Discoveries including high-altitude training, hyper-baric chamber sports therapy, arthroscopic surgery, and performance enhancing drug use were pioneered by the athletic community. At first these modalities provide a competitive advantage for athletes bold enough to break with tradition. Eventually the technology is accepted by other athletes, including the old school establishment. Finally even the hard core skeptics, scientists, and doctors come to view these technological advances as training necessities. Adequate hydration is an absolute necessity for optimal athletic performance. One technological breakthrough that is relatively new to athletes in North America is restructured, ionized water. I wrote this report to provide YOU the athlete with clarification about my experience on Kangen Water (the brand of restructured water that I use and recommend) as well as a brief synopsis of how the technology works, how it can affect performance, and why I believe it's worth trying in your own training regimen. I want to be clear that restructured ionized water is not a miracle product, nor am I making any outrageous medical claims. What I AM sharing with you is my experience using restructured ionized water and how it allowed me to train harder, longer, and recover in a fraction of the time it would take using conventional waters from taps, bottled water, or other filtration, ionization or purification machines. This technology turns ordinary tap water into a natural, high-powered performance enhancer that can enable everyone from weekend warriors to World Class athletes to more easily reach their genetic potential. Restructured ionized water improves recovery, helps avoid injury and can potentially extend athletic careers.

Honoring the Temple of God - A Christian Health Perspective - Ionized Water, Spirulina, Chlorella, Raw Foods (Spanish, French, Italian, German, Japanese, ... Gujarati, Bengali and Korean Edition) by Bob McCauley CNC - Product Description - Jesus speaks of the body as being the living temple of God and refers to his own body as a temple. His words are misunderstood, as was much of his message to those who lived in those times. The Bible states that health and wellness is found with God. If your body is full of disease it is because of the choices you have made. All disease comes from our diet. Our genes have nothing to do with whether we get sick or not. Disease does not run in our families due to genetics, but rather dietary habits that tend to lead to
