Alkaline Ionized Water and High Blood Pressure
If you’re one of the millions who suffers with high blood pressure, then continue reading. We are going to go over how numerous people have lowered their blood pressure on their own and how you can, too.
What is high blood pressure?
High blood pressure is a condition where the pressure of the blood against the artery walls is greater than normal, or greater than what is considered healthy and safe.
Your blood pressure reading is given as a ratio, e.g. 120/80 (said “one twenty over eighty”.) The top number is the pressure the blood is exerting against your artery walls when the heart is contracting and pumping the blood through your body. The bottom number is the pressure exerted when the heart is resting and filling with blood. The ideal blood pressure is below 120 for the top number and below 80 for the bottom number.
120-139 and/or 80-89 is considered pre-hypertension (another word for high blood pressure).
140-159 and/or 90-99 is considered stage 1 high blood pressure.
160 and higher and/or 100 and higher is considered stage 2 high blood pressure.
181 and higher and/or 111 and higher is considered an emergency and you should seek immediate medical attention at the closest emergency room.
What is the Big Deal with High Blood Pressure?
I mean, I feel fine. I don’t feel sick or unhealthy.
Well, sure. But high blood pressure is no laughing matter. While you mostly can’t feel when you
have HBP, there are still risks involved in letting it go untreated. And it can still wreak havoc on your cardiovascular system without you realizing it.
When high blood pressure is left untreated, the artery walls become thickened, narrow and hardened with a substance called plaque. This makes it harder for the blood to pump blood throughout the body, which cuts down on the amount of oxygen-rich blood being delivered to the brain and other organs.
This increase of the plaque can lead to a stroke or heart attack.
High blood pressure also affects that heart by causing it to pump harder, making the walls thicker and unable to work efficiently. Over time this can cause the heart to be unable to pump blood well enough and causes congestive heart failure. Not good!
So, What Can be Done About it?
Blood delivers oxygen and other nutrients to the tissue in your body and transports waste products away from the tissue. The blood is roughly 95% water, so when you are dehydrated your blood thickens up, even if ever so slightly. This makes it harder for the heart to pump the blood throughout your body. If the blood isn’t getting to the tissues well enough to supply the with oxygen and carry off the waste, your body becomes acidic.
Acidity of the body starts in the blood stream.
Dr. Kancho Kuninaka, a renowned doctor in Japan who was one of the first to research and test ionized water treatment for medical conditions, found that practically all who had high blood pressure had a rather acidic body. He found that by consuming plenty of alkaline ionized water, the patients’ blood pressure lowered without fail.
There are several contributing factors to the lowering of the blood pressure. When you are drinking the alkaline ionized water your body is more able to absorb it, and therefore become hydrated, due to the fact that the micro-clustered molecules are easier for the body’s cells to absorb. And when you are hydrated fully the blood is thinner making the heart’s job easier to pump all the blood throughout the body. Another factor is the calcium ions in the alkaline ionized water. These help remove the built up plaque in your blood vessels. This makes it easier for the blood to flow, as well, lowering your blood pressure.
You cannot get these same results by simply drinking tap water or even bottled water, no matter how fancy the bottle or exotic sounding the name. That’s because no other water has the micro-clustered water molecules which absorb into all the cells in your body! Actual hydration like you have never experienced!
That’s why I am so passionate about water ionizers and helping educate as many as I can, as quickly as I can.
