Why Should You Drink Water?
You have probably heard that water makes up over 70% of the body, right? Water is part of all body fluids and is vital to the proper function of the body's organ systems. It should be obvious then that the quality of the water you drink is extremely important.
Water is an essential tool in your chiropractic treatment because deterioration to disk in your spine can be caused by dehydration. Keeping your body properly hydrated is optimal for a keeping your spine healthy.
Consider these interesting facts about water:
- Two-thirds of Americans do not drink the recommended 8-10 glasses of water daily.
- Continual loss of water from the body can slow down the metabolic rate by as much as 3%.
- Over one-third of North Americans have suppressed their thirst mechanism to the point where it is often misinterpreted as hunger.
- The number one reason for daytime sleepiness and low energy is water loss.
- By the time a person feels thirsty, his or her body has lost 1-3% of its total water amount, which can affect memory and the ability to concentrate.
- Water naturally moisturizes skin from the inside out, giving you a fresh looking complexion and a beautiful glow.
- Water naturally carries more substances than any other liquid found on Earth, including vitamins, minerals, and nutrients.

What is IONIZED WATER?
Ionized water is the product of mild electrolysis which takes place in the ionized water unit. The production of ionized water, its properties, and how it works in the human body are described in the next section. Ionized water is treated tap water that has not only been filtered but has also been reformed in that it provides reduced water with a large mass of electrons that can be donated to active oxygen in the body to block the oxidation of normal cells.
What is KANGEN WATER?
Kangen Water® is seeing a great surge of popularity among the health-conscious. As we learn more and more about the health benefits of water for our bodies, we’re also learning that certain types of water are better for us than others. Kangen Water is the official name of water created by Enagic’s innovative water ionization technology. The Kangen Water filtration system removes many harmful chemicals from tap water and produces a more healthy water through the process of electrolysis. Many people use Kangen Water for drinking, cooking, cleaning, and personal hygiene. Kangen means “return to origin” in Japanese, so this means we’re taking water back to its purest origins.
Kangen Water machines work by applying an electrical charge to your tap water, and then sending that charged water through an ion exchange membrane. This will mix positive and negative ions within the water, which can help break molecular bonds on dirt, which is why it is ideal for cleaning and personal hygiene.The Kangen Water will break the molecular bonds on dirt and oil on your face, keeping it clean, smooth, and moist. Rather than using harsh astringents that dry out your skin, or leaving a soapy film on your skin because your water can’t clean it all off, Kangen Water can help clean your face better than regular tap water.
It can also help you clean your home by loosening the molecular bonds between dirt and the surfaces you’re washing, attracting it like a magnet. This way, Kangen Water can actually lift grime and dirt off surfaces, which makes it easy to wipe away. No need for dangerous, toxic cleaners, no need for abrasive sponges and frantic scrubbing.
Kangen Water is also better for personal health. While drinking tap water is better than buying soft drinks, it’s still not the safest it could be. Recent investigations revealed that tap water in 42 states has been found to be contaminated with more than 140 unregulated chemicals. Local governments do their best to make the water safe, but the water ends up tasting chlorinated and unpleasant to drink. Even well water isn’t always safe, especially homes that are close to farms and animal production facilities with chemical and animal waste runoff.
A Kangen Water system, with appropriate filters, can clean up contaminated and polluted water, removing the chemicals, bacteria, and other unpleasant little nasties that can cause ill health.
Even bottled water isn’t always a viable solution. It costs more, creates further environmental damage through creating and disposing of the bottles, and believe it or not, is not always free of contaminants. Studies have shown that one-third of bottled water contains levels of contamination that exceed allowable limits. And if you buy bottled water from the store, you can pay as much as $1 – $2 per bottle, just for a false sense of safety.
Another common water filtration system we see is reverse osmosis water. Reverse osmosis water is effective in rural and suburban areas that don’t have municipally treated water, like you have in the cities and towns. However, reverse osmosis can’t remove pesticides, herbicides, and chlorine, which are molecularly smaller than water, and can pass through the reverse osmosis filter. Another problem is that reverse osmosis will also remove healthy water minerals, which provide a health benefit for our bodies. If you strip these minerals from the water, it can actually be unhealthy for us. When you consider that 2 – 3 gallons of water is wasted for every gallon of water purified through a reverse osmosis system, you start to see why Kangen Water® is a better alternative.
