New Year's Resolutions

It's the third week of January and I wanted to check in on everyone's New Year's Resolutions. I know most of us made a resolute decision to lose weight, eat healthier, get healthier, get fit or exercise more. A lot of us bought gym memberships or a new piece of exercise equipment. But most people fall back into their same ol' habits by February. But we are going to talk about how something as simple as changing your water can help you keep all those resolutions.

2016, resolutions, working out

Alkaline Ionized Water and Weight Loss

So many, if not all, body diseases and disorders are caused by a pH that is too low. The body is acidic. It has built up acidic waste that the body hasn't been able to get rid of. One of these malfunctions of the body that more than 1/2 of Americans suffer from is excess body fat. Did you know that the body stores the acidic waste inside the fat cells to protect the body from them. It's a defense mechanism that works, but when you have too much waste built up in your body, it affects the proper functioning of your body and all biochemical processes.

By drinking plenty, and I do mean plenty, of alkaline water, you can help turn the tides in your body. This water helps flush out the acidic waste and make your body more alkaline. By getting these wastes out out of your cells it's easier for you to shed those extra pounds.

See my article here which goes into more detail on this one specific topic. It'll help explain a lot, especially if you've counted calories, cut portions, cut out your fat intake, etc with little luck in losing weight.

Alkaline Ionized Water and your Workouts

Alkaline water helps tremendously with sustaining you during workouts. So many customers of mine have been thrilled with the extra energy they feel while working out and drinking alkaline ionized water. It helps with both ridding the body of the acid wastes produced while exercising, but also neutralizing free radicals floating around.

If you have the resolution of exercising more or working out at the gym regularly, I can't recommend strongly enough how much a water ionizer will help in your goal.

Read this article here for more information

Alkaline Ionized Water and Your Health

Drinking plenty of water is essential to your health. Alkaline ionized water is far better than any other water you can drink - tap, bottled, distilled, filtered or reverse osmosis.

The health benefits of water are abundant, but here are some, to name a few:

Water helps keep lungs clear and free of mucous
Water helps reduce the risk of cancer
Water keeps the kidneys functioning properly
Water helps regulate blood pressure
Water helps transport nutrients throughout your body

You can click here and read more about the health benefits of water, and especially alkaline water.

As you can see, alkaline water will help you greatly in achieving your New Year's Resolutions and sticking to them throughout the year and for years to come.

Visit our store now and take a look at the broad selection of ionizers we offer. We have one for every budget and also offer affordable payment plans.

Reach out if you need help selecting the best one for your needs.

Water Ionizers Make Great Christmas Gifts

So you're wondering what to buy a loved one for Christmas. Maybe they have everything they need, or you want to help in improving their health. Whatever the reason, a water ionizer is a great gift that won't be outdone by anyone else's present.

water ionizer, alkaline water, ionized water, gift

The Amazing Power of Antioxidants

Antioxidants are so important for everyone's health that investing in a water ionizer for a loved one will show how much you care. The current diet of American's and a lot of other citizens in different countries is NOT what it used to be. Processed foods, preservatives, GMOs, MSG, hydrogenated oils, fast food, soft drinks and the list goes on, has wreaked havoc on our bodies. This has led to most people's bodies being very acidic. The water provided by a water ionizer is rich in antioxidants and is the best, most healthful source of them. These antioxidants help rid the body of free radicals, which if left unchecked put lots of stress on your cells.

Helping a loved one, such as your parents, children, grandparents, grandchildren, etc, with their health, would be the best, most thoughtful gift you could possibly give.

Do Any of Your Family Suffer From Any Disease or Ailment?

Do any of your loved ones suffer from cancer, heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes (Type 1 and 2), arthritis, dementia, to name a few? They can literally all benefit by alkalizing their bodies and improve their conditions by neutralizing free radicals in their bodies. There is no promise that ionized water will completely handle their conditions but it will certainly help. I have written many articles on how a water ionizer helps give us the balance that our bodies need, such as on these topics: Diabetes and Dementia and Acid Reflux. There are a tremendous number of benefits of alkaline ionized water.

Water Ionizers as Gifts

We offer such a wide variety of the highest quality water ionizers ranging from less than $1000 to well over $3000. We offer affordable payment plans along with refurbished water ionizers, too, that make giving this gift possible. We also are currently offering reduced prices on some of our ionizers through the end of the year. 

Please don't hesitate to call if you have any questions with giving the gift of alkaline ionized water. I would be more than happy to help.

5 Crazy Facts About Water That are Actually True

Water is an amazing substance on Earth. Did you know that water should be a gas at room temperature, but, as you will find out later in this post, it's a liquid. And, you'll be surprised to find out just how little water is available for drinking.

Read on for 5 amazing facts about water that really are true!

1. Ice actually weighs less than water. 

I know, I know. That's kind of weird. You would think it would be heavier, but ice floats on water, meaning it's lighter than water, otherwise it would sink. 

The molecules in liquid water are more densely packed than when frozen. When the water freezes, they freeze in a hexagonal crystal form and even though they are bonded together, they are actually spread farther apart and so aren't packed as densely as when they are in a liquid state. 

ice, water, molecule

2. Our drinking water comes from 1/10,000 of a percent of all Earth's water. 

I can barely fathom this! So, in other words, only a millionth of the world's water is used for drinking water. 

Most of the fresh water we drink comes from rivers, which accounts for the 1/10,000 of a percent. 96% of the water on Earth is saltwater, which we don't drink. And most of the freshwater is frozen in glaciers and ice caps. In fact, there is more fresh water under the Earth's surface than there is on the surface of our great planet. 

And, in addition to that, most of the 1/1,000,000 of water we are able to use for drinking water is polluted with man-made chemicals. All the more reason to invest in a water ionizer. 

3. Water should be a gas at room temperature.

Water molecules are sticky, they stick to everything, including themselves. Other molecules that are similar to water, such as hydrogen sulfide and ammonia, are gasses. But water’s unique stickiness holds water molecules together enough for water to remain a liquid at room temperature. Water’s stickiness can cause problems: It can make it hard to do your laundry, and it can make it hard for your body to absorb.

The stickiness of water molecules is affected by substances dissolved in it. Some substances. such as the mineral bicarbonates in tap water, make water act stickier. That’s why you have to use more soap when doing laundry with hard water. Water ionizers convert those hard-to-absorb mineral carbonates into mineral hydroxides. Those mineral hydroxides actually reduce water’s stickiness, which makes it easier to absorb. That’s why alkaline water hydrates you better and faster than plain water.

4. There are only 7 springs in the world where you can find naturally occurring alkaline ionized water.

You read that right - there are only seven (7) springs on Earth where you can find natural ionized alkaline water! They are highly cherished for the health restoring properties they possess. People spend large amounts of money on the water from these springs that you can have right in your own home! 

Three of these renowned springs are in Nordenau, Germany; Zam Zam Saudi Arabia and Hita Tenryosui in Japan.

5. There is a reason why your fingers and toes get wrinkly when they're in water for any extended period of time.

After you’ve soaked in the tub for a while, your fingers and toes get wrinkly, but the rest of your skin remains smooth. The reason? The epidermis – outermost layer of skin – is thickest on the bottom of your feet and hands. As you soak, the epidermis absorbs water, which causes it to expand. The skin underneath is already wet, so it doesn’t absorb much, if any water, so it doesn’t expand with the epidermis. To compensate for its expanded surface area, the epidermis wrinkles. The epidermis on other parts of your body is simply too thin to get that wrinkling effect.

You also absorb any chemicals that happen to be present in that water into your skin, especially chlorine. This is why at a minimum, you should install a shower filter on your shower. Even better is whole home filtration, because that keeps the chemicals out of your home’s water supply.

And there you have it - 5 crazy, amazing facts you may or may not have known about water. Which ones did you know? Which ones did you learn something from? Share below in the comments!

7 Awesome Facts About Hydrogen Water

Hydrogen is where it all begins. It's the first element on the Periodic Table. Understanding the importance of hydrogen is essential to fully understanding why it's essential for all life.

As I covered quite thoroughly in another blog wrote on hydrogen gas and alkaline water, there is a myriad of benefits to be had from consuming alkaline ionized water, which is rich in this element.

Hydrogen, hydrogen gas, h2, alkaline water, alkaline ionized water

7 Awesome Benefits of Hydrogen Water

1.  Drinking HydrogenAlkaline water contains hydrogen. Drinking alkaline water is one of the very best ways of getting the benefits of hydrogen working for you.

2. Help Prevent the Loss of Cognitive AbilityA recent study using mice as test subjects, showed that mice that drank hydrogen water experienced less neuro-degeneration than the mice that drank regular water.

3. Help with Metabolic SyndromeIn another study, subjects at risk of developing metabolic syndrome were studied for the effects of treating them with hydrogen water. The results of the study concluded that, “The [hydrogen-rich water generated via a magnesium stick] represents a potentially novel therapeutic and preventive strategy for metabolic syndrome.”

4. The Power of a Relaxing BathThe mythical idea of your health improving by ‘taking the waters’ has been proven to have its roots firmly rooted in fact. The ‘healing springs’ of Japan, Mexico, India and Lourdes contain dissolved hydrogen gas, and we now understand that they really are as beneficial as they are therapeutic.

5. Hydrogen Water Boosts Your EnergyMaking sure you’re always adequately hydrated is key to feeling energetic, but knowing that the hydrogen in alkaline water is boosting your energy at a cellular level will give you an even better incentive to drink up!

6. Improve Oral HygieneThere’s mounting evidence that hydrogen water can improve gum health, and also help neutralize acids in your mouth following a meal or snack

7. Fight Those Free Radicals!Drinking hydrogen-rich alkaline water is the perfect way to provide a defense against free radicals, which are responsible for oxidization – or decay – within our bodies.

Alkaline Ionized Water Recognized in Other Countries
Scientists in Japan and other countries recognize the value and importance of alkaline ionized water. Japan has gone from one of the unhealthiest countries to one of the healthiest by implementing this one item into their routine treatment of patients. It is only a matter of time before it becomes more widely-known and sought out in America. 

I urge you to improve your life and the lives of your family and friends by incorporating this one small, but huge, change into your routine. You will reap the benefits and you'll notice a change right away. Please feel free to comment with any questions and I will respond right away.

Alkaline Recipes for Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is right around the corner! But like so many of us who are trying to maintain a healthy, alkaline diet, that turkey, those mashed potatoes and that pumpkin pie can wreak havoc on our efforts. Today I'm going to share some Thanksgiving-appropriate alkaline recipes that you don't have to feel too bad indulging in next Thursday.


I highly recommend starting with a big salad and an alkaline soup, filling your body with nutrient-dense foods before heading to the main course. This will fill you up and you can eat small portions of the rest of the acidic foods. Here is a great salad and soup that will bring a touch of sophistication to any Thanksgiving table:

Thanksgiving Turkey

Ok, so while meat is acid-producing in the body, I suggest going easy on your turkey helpings. I would strive to maintain a 60/40 ratio of alkaline to acidic foods during big holiday feast.

However, soaking your bird in alkaline water for 30 minutes prior to roasting will help in getting a perfectly tender turkey and I'm sure it can't hurt your alkalinity.

Here is a good recipe you can follow:
