HOW TO LOSE WEIGHT WITH WATER

Image
Just water before meals to fill the stomach is not the idea.
Timing and right water are key.Why? Kangenwater increase the metabolism Naturally, weight loss occurs when you are burning more energy than you are taking in. Most weight loss plans involve reduced caloric intake and enough exercise to help boost your metabolism.

What many plans fail to emphasize is the importance of high quality water in this process. Water is at the very base of all electrochemical reactions that can lead to weight loss.

For example, with the assistance of water, your body’s liver can utilize and metabolize your body’s stored fat into energy. Because water helps move nutrients across the body from food and nutritional supplements, it contributes to building muscle mass as you exercise and weight train. Increased muscle mass therefore leads to an increase in metabolic rate.

Dr. Hiromi Shinya, in his book, “The Enzyme Factor” addresses this issue of weight and kangenwater:

“The idea of drinking water to lose weight may sound bogus, but the idea holds some truth.

“When you drink water, the sympathetic nerves get stimulated. activating energy metabolism and increasing caloric consumption, which results in weight loss. When you stimulate the sympathetic nerves, adreneline is secreted. Adreneline activates the hormone-sensitive lipase found in fat tissue, which then breaks down triglycerides into fatty acid and glycerol, making it easier for your body to burn stored fat.

Timing is important. Water before meals at least 30, 40 minutes, no water during meals.

THE PROCESS:

Step 1

Read the manufacturer’s instructions for installing the Enagic water system to your kitchen water source. Install as directed to your cold water supply. Push the “Kangen™” button to prepare drinking water at the optimal Ph. level of 8.5 or above, as recommended by Japanese scientists at Shiga University.

Step 2

Weigh yourself and record the number in the journal for a starting point reference. Drink one glass upon rising the first day you begin with the Kangen™ water. Hydrate your digestive system by drinking one glass 30 to 40 minutes before your midday meal. Consume one glass between lunch and one between lunch and dinner.

Step 3

Drink one glass 30 to 40 minutes before your evening meal. Write down your meal and water times for the day, as well as record how you feel physically.

Step 4

Read your journal entries the following day and try to stick to this schedule for the duration of your weight loss program. Keep your consumption of all food drinks consistent, especially your servings of Kangen™ water.

Tips and Warnings

“Consume half of your body weight in ounces of Kangen™ water daily,” suggests Molecular Hydration Specialist, Janet Keller. If you feel bloated or sluggish, cut down your intake by one to two glasses. Drink all water on an empty stomach for best results. Adhering to a low fat diet and doable fitness plan will increase your chances to lose weight with Kangen™ water. Do not use Kangen™ water to take medication, as it may cause some pill types to enter the bloodstream too quickly. Always consult your health care provider before changing your diet, fitness routine or supplement consumption.

Early Death Comes From Drinking Distilled Water

Image
by Dr Zoltan P. Rona, MD MSc

During nearly 19 years of clinical practice I have had the opportunity to observe the health effects of drinking different types of water. Most of you would agree that drinking unfiltered tap water could be hazardous to your health because of things like

  • parasites
  • chlorine
  • fluoride
  • dioxins

Many health fanatics, however, are often surprised to hear me say that drinking distilled water on a regular, daily basis is potentially dangerous.

Paavo Airola wrote about the dangers of distilled water in the 1970’s when it first became a fad with the health food crowd.

Distillation is the process in which water is boiled, evaporated and the vapour condensed. Distilled water is free of dissolved minerals and, because of this, has the special property of being able to actively absorb toxic substances from the body and eliminate them. Studies validate the benefits of drinking distilled water when one is seeking to cleanse or detoxify the system for short periods of time (a few weeks at a time).

Fasting using distilled water can be dangerous because of the rapid loss of electrolytes (sodium, potassium, chloride) and trace minerals like magnesium, deficiencies of which can cause heart beat irregularities and high blood pressure. Cooking foods in distilled water pulls the minerals out of them and lowers their nutrient value.

Distilled water is an active absorber and oxidant when it comes into contact with air, it absorbs carbon dioxide, making it acidic. The more distilled water a person drinks, the higher the body acidity becomes.

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, “Distilled water, being essentially mineral-free, is very aggressive, in that it tends to dissolve substances with which it is in contact. Notably, carbon dioxide from the air is rapidly absorbed, making the water acidic and even more aggressive. Many metals are dissolved by distilled water.”

The most toxic commercial beverages that people consume (i.e. cola beverages and other soft drinks) are made from distilled water. Studies have consistently shown that heavy consumers of soft drinks (with or without sugar) spill huge amounts of calcium, magnesium and other trace minerals into the urine.

The more mineral loss, the greater the risk for osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, hypothyroidism, coronary artery disease, high blood pressure and a long list of degenerative diseases generally associated with premature aging.

A growing number of health care practitioners and scientists from around the world have been advocating the theory that aging and disease is the direct result of the accumulation of acid waste products in the body.

There is a great deal of scientific documentation that supports such a theory. A poor diet may be partially to blame for the waste accumulation.

These and other junk foods can cause the body to become more acidic:

  • meats
  • sugar
  • alcohol
  • fried foods
  • soft drinks
  • processed foods
  • white flour products
  • dairy products

Stress, whether mental or physical can lead to acid deposits in the body.

There is a correlation between the consumption of soft water (distilled water is extremely soft) and the incidence of cardiovascular disease. Cells, tissues and organs do not like to be dipped in acid and will do anything to buffer this acidity including the removal of minerals from the skeleton and the manufacture of bicarbonate in the blood.

“The longer one drinks distilled water, the more likely the development of mineral deficiencies and an ACID state”.

I have done well over 3000 mineral evaluations using a combination of blood, urine and hair tests in my practice. Almost without exception, people who consume distilled water exclusively, eventually develop multiple mineral deficiencies.

Those who supplement their distilled water intake with trace minerals are not as deficient but still not as adequately nourished in minerals as their non-distilled water drinking counterparts even after several years of mineral supplementation.

The ideal water for the human body should be slightly alkaline and this requires the presence of minerals like

  • calcium
  • magnesium

Distilled water tends to be acidic and can only be recommended as a way of drawing poisons out of the body in a very short period of time.Once this is accomplished, the continued drinking of distilled water is a bad idea.

Water filtered through reverse osmosis tends to be  less acidic and is acceptable for regular use, but mineral water is better

Water filtered through a solid charcoal filter or ionizer is slightly alkaline. Longevity is associated with the regular consumption of hard water (high in minerals). Disease and early death is more likely to be seen with the long term drinking of distilled water.

Avoid it except in special circumstances.

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.

Pregnancy

Pregnancy is a time of joy and anticipation. It’s also a time of toxicity.

Baby is constantly fed and nourished with alkaline minerals from Mommy. And Baby’s needs for the alkaline minerals overrides Mommy’s needs for the same minerals. When so much of the alkaline minerals are taken from Mom, it puts her on a path to high-level acidity at a critical time when the baby’s cells begin to divide, multiply and form this new human being. It is a metabolic process where its by-product of waste is dumped back into the placenta where Baby is forming and growing cell by cell by cell.

When left alone or the alkalinity of the mother is ignored, there is a danger to both mother and baby. It is a lot like a goldfish left in a dirty bowl. If it isn’t kept clean, the fish can eventually die because the acid waste sucks the oxygen out of the fluids that are meant to contribute to the growth and health of the fish…or baby.

Today the statistics are staggering when it comes to autism, cancer and diabetes among children.!! They are increasing at warp speed. Autism is at an all time rate of 1 case in 150 with boys having autism four times more frequently than that of girls. Cancer is the number one health condition of children under 14. And diabetes is showing up in children in larger and larger numbers of cases. The commonality of all of these diseases is they all thrive in an acidic environment. This is why it is crucial for a mom-to-be to run, not walk, to the nearest water source and demand, Kangen Water before she decides to become pregnant. It is the single best thing she can do for her body when it is preparing to ‘house’ a tiny little being.— LouAnn Savage

Pregnant mother and healthiest preparation:Kangen Water(TM)

As human beings, our natural state is one of alkalinity. When a woman gets pregnant she starts giving up alkaline minerals to her fetus. In that process, toxicity becomes part of pregnancy.

Drinking Kangen Water(TM) is one of the best preparations for pregnancy and one of the best elements for nutritional maintenance before and during gestation. When combined with recommended vitamins and a healthier diet before becoming pregnant, a woman’s biological system is likely to be at its healthiest for conception.

We know Baby is drawing all of its nutrition from Mother. God made sure that between the two this new life gets the alkaline mineral priority. The very nature of pregnancy makes it easy to understand why the mother can become acidic. As Baby is being fed through the umbilical cord, its cells are being formed and waste results. Pregnant Mom’s biological job is to contribute alkaline minerals into the placenta so the fluid stays free of toxins that are acidic. Reserves of alkaline minerals are critical to both mother and baby’s health and wellbeing. Waste becomes the by-product of the metabolic process between mother and baby. It is important that the embryonic fluid stays as clean and as alkaline as possible–like an insurance policy for baby’s health. If Mom’s reserves are insufficient, a challenge occurs with a struggle to maintain whatever alkaline minerals are being depleted. If these vital minerals can’t be found in the reserves, the body looks elsewhere throughout Mom’s body like bones and teeth.

Among all of the changes going on throughout Mom’s body,keeping under control toxicity and acidity for two people at the same time may be the most challenging. Baby gets the alkaline minerals first over mother which gives an advantage to baby’s cellular development. Baby’s cells divide and grow best when the embryonic fluid is at an optimum level. If it is not that is when we hear of women’s teeth becoming weak or falling out or their bones getting brittle from depletion of calcium .

Tony Robbins, in his Edge of Alkaline seminar, illustrates acid this way; sugar = acid and acid = glue. Excess acid creates solid waste and thickens the blood. Bad blood circulation is an invitation to all kinds of acid related conditions and problems. At some level, these results stem from a polluted internal terrain. Drinking the best alkaline water available is one of the best defenses for both mother and baby. Kangen Water(TM) is the best place to start. Like sports, the best defense is a strong offense.

UCLA Study Finds Teens Think Sports Drinks Are Healthy

A new study about those energy drinks that help some of you get through the day is out, and the buzz throughout the country about it is not so good.

The recent study shows that energy drinks might actually be doing more harm than good.

It finds a link between the drinks and seizures, diabetes, and behavior disorders, especially in young adults and children.

“”i can never think of any situation where an energy drink is needed,” says Tara Harwood, R.N., Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital.  “A lot of energy drinks promote weight loss, increased stamina, increased athletic performance, and increased concentration. You know, really, if you eat a balanced diet, you stay well hydrated, and you exercise, those things can do the same without those consequences.”

Acid pH in Tumors and Its Potential for Therapeutic Exploitation

By Ian F. Tannock2 and Daniela Rotin3

Departments of Medicine and Medical Biophysics, Ontario Cancer Institute and University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada M4X 1K9

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.

A Natural Approach

Did you know the human body is capable of staying well and fighting off illness naturally? When faced with germs, bacteria and harmful exposure to chemicals in the environment, a body at optimal health has all the natural defenses it needs.

Unfortunately, many people are living with a body that is not performing at its peak. This can be due to a wide range of contributing factors, such as lack of hydration, poor diet, lack of sleep, environmental exposure to chemicals, and chronic stress, which can damage a body’s carefully balanced natural defense system. All of these factors can lead to an overload of the immune system, which places more stress on the body.More stress, more FREE RADICALS PRODUCTION. More ACIDIC forming foods, less ALKALINE our fluids will be as they should.  Proper PH is key in our immune system performance.

The esteemed Mayo Clinic reports the following:
The long-term activation of the stress-response system and the subsequent overexposure to cortisol and other stress hormones can disrupt almost all your body’s processes.”1 That’s serious business for those of us who are trying to stay healthy. And it explains why countless consumers feel fatigued on a daily basis and battle sickness all too often.

The good news is that the symptoms of stress and poor health can be dealt with naturally! A stressed out body very often lacks proper nutrition, practices poor sleeping habits, and neglects proper hydration. This cycle of stress and poor hydration can be broken by drinking enough healthy water daily. In general, you should try to drink between 8 to 10 glasses of water every day.2
