How KANGEN WATER can help an expectant mother

When you decide that you want to start trying to have a baby, you need to think about more than the maintaining a proper diet throughout the pregnancy. You also need to get the body ready before it happens. A healthy environment is necessary for your future child to grow in, and many women are looking at different ways to prepare themselves beforehand. Kangen Water is one of the best methods that women are choosing, before and during pregnancy.

Kangen Water is alkaline water; a pure and healthy water is that is good for you while tasting delicious. A water processor  is used to filter out any harmful chemicals that can come from your tap water through a process of ionization. After the filtering is done, what you are left with is alkaline water, which is essential to balance the pH levels in the body for a healthier you.

Making sure your body is prepared for pregnancy inside and out is something that you seriously need to consider. During the fetus’ growth, Your body is going to need an alkaline reserve (a sufficient alkaline mineral supply in the blood). The best way to achieve this is by drinking alkaline water. Kangen Water will ensure that you have a sufficient supply of alkalinity and therefore you will be ready for conception.

The placenta will use the alkaline reserves that are in your body after you fall pregnant. If you have a sufficient reserve, the placenta won’t have to look elsewhere in the body for those vital minerals, like the teeth or the bones. It will continue to use these reserves to neutralize the acidic discharges that will come from the baby over the next nine months.

The importance of water during pregnancy is far-reaching and the alkaline minerals during this time are essential. Women who don’t have enough of those minerals in their body are most likely to experience severe morning sickness. Another issue that can arise is that without the right amount of alkaline minerals present in the body to neutralize those acidic discharges, the risk of jaundice in the baby at birth rises.

During the pregnancy, your baby will get all the minerals it needs before its mother for its cellular development since the embryonic fluid must be at an optimum level. That fluid needs to stay as clean as possible, and be as alkaline as possible for the baby’s development and health. Alkaline water provides the right nutrients and minerals to ensure the health of both baby and mother are protected.

Pregnancy builds a high demand for water within your body and in your developing child. Every new cell that is created must be filled with water and that water comes from what you drink and eat. Give your body and your baby the best healthcare possible by choosing healthy and delicious Kangen Water.

Pregnant women should drink Kangen Water™

An article authored by three professionals came to us, it’s about whether pregnant women should drink Kangen Water™, and whether this water is safe and healthy for both mother and baby.  I’ve summed up the three part article below:

Within the first week of pregnancy, mother’s body goes through several significant changes that affect her until she delivers, and often for the rest of her life.  Mother starts making the placenta, feeding the new baby, and providing all of the nutrients and minerals that baby will need to develop.

This draws heavily on mother’s body to supply the water for baby’s tissue, and calcium for bones and teeth.  As baby develops, his body begins to function on its own and, in the process, it consumes nutrients and makes waste.  Since mother’s blood vessels are not connected to baby’s blood vessels, baby’s waste is discharged into the placenta and mother has to supply neutralizing buffers in some form of alkaline pH.  If mother doesn’t have a sufficient supply of alkaline pH substances in her diet to supply this demand, the body makes the buffer from calcium, which is taken from mother’s bones and teeth.  All of this draw from mother’s body causes her to become acidic (acidosis), and it’s acidosis that causes morning sickness.

The key to a healthy mother and baby is to keep mother’s body alkalized.  If the pregnancy is planned, mother should begin a diet with plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, and drink Kangen Water™.  When mother becomes pregnant, she should drink a minimum of ½ fl oz of Kangen Water™ per pound of body weigh, more if possible.  It is very important that mother drink at least 16 fl oz of Kangen Water™ the first thing in the morning 1/2 hour before breakfast.  If she does this, she will probably not experience morning sickness.

Continuing this regimen through the pregnancy will address a number of issues: Plenty of fluid for baby to form with and in, plenty of fluid to flush wastes from mother’s body, plenty of alkaline pH to supply both mother and baby’s needs, to minimize mother’s calcium loss thus staving off osteoporosis, stronger cells in both mother and baby, and all of the other benefits of being healthy from drinking Kangen Water™.

If you know of anyone who is pregnant or who is planning a family, encourage both mom and dad to start drinking Kangen Water™ (kids too).  A healthy family makes for a better pregnancy.

Acid pH in Tumors and Its Potential for Therapeutic Exploitation

Measurement of pH in tissue has shown that the microenvironment in tumors is generally more acidic than in normal tissues. Major mechanisms which lead to tumor acidity probably include the production of lactic acid and hydrolysis of ATP in hypoxic regions of tumors.

Further reduction in pH may be achieved in some tumors by administration of glucose (±insulin) and by drugs such as hydralazine which modify the relative blood flow to tumors and normal tissues.

Cells have evolved mechanisms for regulating their intracellular pH. The amiloride-sensitive Na+/H+ antiport and the DIDS-sensitiveNa+-dependent HCO3/Cl exchanger appear to be the major mechanisms for regulating pHi under conditions of acid loading, although additional mechanisms may contribute to acid extrusion.

Mitogen-induced initiation of proliferation in some cells is preceded by cytoplasmic alkalinization, usually triggered by stimulation of Na+/H+ exchange; proliferation of other cells can be induced without prior alkalinization. Mutant cells whichlack Na+/H+ exchange activity have reduced or absent ability to generate solid tumors; a plausible explanation is the failure of such mutant cells to withstand acidic conditions that are generated during tumor growth.

Studies in tissue culture have demonstrated that the combinationof hypoxia and acid pHe is toxic to mammalian cells, whereas short exposures to either factor alone are not very toxic. This interaction may contribute to cell death and necrosis in solid tumors. Acidic pH may influence the outcome of tumor therapy.There are rather small effects of pHe on the response of cells to ionizing radiation but acute exposure to acid pHe causes a marked increase in response to hyperthermia; this effect is decreased in cells that are adapted to low pHe. Acidity may have varying effects on the response of cells to conventionalanti cancer drugs. Ionophores such as nigericin or CCCP causea cid loading of cells in culture and are toxic only at low pHe;this toxicity is enhanced by agents such as amiloride or DIDS which impair mechanisms involved in regulation of pHi. It is suggested that acid conditions in tumors might allow the development of new and relatively specific types of therapy which are directed against mechanisms which regulate pHi under acid conditions.
