pH Test Strips
Water makes up a large part of the fluid that lubricates and cushions your joints and muscles.
Make sure that you're drinking at least half your body weight in ounces per day of ionized alkaline water. Be careful of bottled waters, which are typically acidic. Plastic bottles also leach harmful petrochemicals into the water. Use BPA free water bottles.

The pH Miracle
Balance Your Diet, Reclaim Your Health
Authors: Robert O. Young, D.Sc., Ph.D.
Shelley Redford Young, L.M.T.
The pH Miracle is reminiscent of an earlier generation of diet books. Much of the focus is on an intestinal cleansing program, followed by a diet of vegetables, coupled with a selection of supplements that authors Robert and Shelley Young recommend to everyone, no matter what their age, gender or state of health. Dr. Young recommends ionized alkalized water for better health. He states that electron-rich alkaline fluids neutralize the acids from the food that you're eating. Doctor Young says the one thing you can do to have better health, is to start drinking alkalized ionized water.

Author: Robert T. Kiyosaki
Robert Kiyosaki has received all sorts of awards and honors over the years, based upon his global message of financial literacy. Most people struggle financially because although they've spent years in school, they learned nothing about money. The result is that people learn to "work for money"... but never learn to have "money work for them."
PPI Pharmaceutical Drug Warnings
Acid reflux medications
Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), often used to treat health conditions such as heartburn, stomach acid reflux, ulcers and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), are among the most commonly prescribed and over the counter pharmaceutical drugs in the U.S. with over $14 billion in annual sales for the pharmaceutical companies.
More than 100 million prescriptions are written each year in the United States alone for PPI heartburn medications. However, research about proton pump inhibitors contributing to serious health issues has been studied and reported by various institutions.*
According to a study by Johns Hopkins University researchers, heartburn medication has been linked to Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). The research raises serious questions about commonly used acid reflux drugs such as Nexium, Prevacid, Prilosec and other proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). Stanford University researchers also revealed evidence linking acid reflux medications to a greater risk of heart attacks.
Prior studies have linked acid reflux medications to bone fractures, gut infections such as c.difficile, dementia, pneumonia, magnesium loss, heart problems and various health conditions. The fact is that you need gastric acid in your stomach to kill bacteria so shutting down the body's proton pumps may not be the best method of treatment. The hydrochloric acid in your stomach kills bacteria, thereby protecting your body from harmful microbes that can enter your body in the food you eat. These microbes can travel to your lungs where they multiply and possibly cause pneumonia. A study published in The Journal of the American Medical Association found that patients taking PPI medications had a 30% greater the risk of developing hospital-acquired pneumonias (HAPs).
In light of these important clinical studies, many doctors are taking patients off these PPI medications and recommending alkaline water as a safer alternative for patients; however, bottled alkaline water has other health concerns.
Plastic bottles used for bottled water contain harmful petrochemicals that leach into the water (plastics are made from oil). Plastic water bottles may also contain BPA (Bisphenol A), which is an endocrine disruptor that mimics the hormone estrogen. Styrene or Polystyrene (PS), which is also widely used in water bottles (#6), is classified as an anticipated carcinogen by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and also by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Heat and storage increase the leaching of these dangerous chemicals into the bottled water.
Many bottled waters are also typically acidic (low pH) and have a positive electrical charge (free radicals), despite what the labels state. When a bottle of alkaline water is labeled as alkaline or antioxidant, it may not be naturally alkaline or contain antioxidants. We've tested dozens of bottled waters and found the labels to be misleading at the least. Bottled water companies typically add chemicals to boost the alkalinity of the water and bottle labels often depict pictures of mountains or rivers to make consumers think their water is from pristine sources. For instance, Aquafina bottled water made by Pepsi-Cola & Dasani bottled water made by Coca-Cola are both sourced from municipal Public Water Sources (PWS) - read the labels carefully. They use reverse osmosis filtration, which strips the minerals out of the water thereby resulting in acidic water (RO water). Basically, Aquafina, Dasani and many other brands of bottled water are simply expensive filtered tap water with an unhealthy twist, they're acidic waters. You want some minerals in your water, that's what makes the water alkaline. Your body also needs minerals or it will pull minerals from your bones, teeth and soft tissues when your natural alkaline buffers are depleted or if you drink distilled water, reverse osmosis water (RO water), sports drinks, sodas or soft drinks on a regular basis. If the label says sparkling water, it's also acidic water.

Here are some important properties of water that you should be aware of:
Alkalinity / Acidity
Is your water alkaline or acidic?
This can be measured with pH strips, pH drops or a pH meter.
* Kangen Water® is alkaline with selectable ranges from pH 8.5 - pH 9.5.
ORP (Oxidation Reduction Potential)
Does your water have a positive charge (oxidizing)
or a negative charge (anti-oxidizing or antioxidant)?
This can be measured with an ORP meter.
* Kangen Water® has a healthy negative ORP.
Does your water contain chlorine (disinfectant)?
This can be measured with chlorine strips, chlorine drops or a chlorine tester.
If your tap water smells like a swimming pool, the chlorine content is high.
* Kangen Water® appliances remove chlorine.
TDS (Total Dissolved Solids)
Do you have hard water or soft water (indicating mineral content)
This can be measured with an TDS tester.
* Kangen Water® appliances use the minerals in your water for electrolysis.
Is your water filtered?
* Kangen Water® filters are NSF Certified and tested by the Water Quality Association (WQA) to remove chlorine, lead, sediment and particulates.
Is your water easy to swallow, or does it bloat you and taste bulky?
* Kangen Water® is delicious, easy to drink & goes down smooth.
Due to the special properties of the water, Kangen Water® will not bloat you
like bottled water and tap water does. You'll feel the benefits with your first glass.
Remember that water is simply composed of hydrogen and oxygen (H2O). Two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. The Enagic® Kangen Water® ionizer appliance separates the hydrogen from the oxygen by splitting the water molecules apart through electrolysis. The resulting drinking water contains natural molecular hydrogen (H2), which is a very powerful and natural antioxidant that acts as an effective free radical scavenger for reactive oxygen species (ROS), which are harmful free radicals in the body. According to the free radical theory, oxidative damage by reactive oxygen species is a major contributor to aging and many other health issues.
A clinical study from Haradoi Hospital, Department of Rheumatology and Orthopaedic Surgery, titled Molecular hydrogen: new antioxidant and anti-inflammatory therapy for rheumatoid arthritis and related diseases states the following: "among the ROS, the hydroxyl radical is the most harmful and molecular hydrogen (H2) is a selective scavenger for this species."
Unlike vitamins, which can become free radicals after they donate their electrons, dissolved molecular hydrogen (H2) simply converts the hydroxyl radical (OH) reactive oxygen species into water. In addition, molecular hydrogen upregulates the body's own antioxidants such as glutathione peroxidase and superoxide dismutase (SOD). It also helps with cell signaling in the body.
Our own bodies produce hydrogen in our stomach. The hydrogen atom is the smallest element that exists (one proton and one electron) and the simplest. Hydrogen is one of the most abundant elements in the universe and so is water, which is what our bodies are mostly made of.
