Chanson Spa Shower Filter Testimonial

We are pleased to share the following  Chanson Spa Shower Filter testimonial we recently received from a happy customer:

I recently purchased a home in Riverside county and did not realize that their tap water ranks #4 WORST in the country until it was too late! Fortunately I already have an ionizer but the unfiltered tap water was doing a number on my hair. I was shocked when it literally stripped red permanent dye within three washes (a hairdresser once told me that red is the hardest pigment to extract!) In addition, the water left my hair dull, dry, frizzy and unmanageable and gave me dandruff for the first time in years. I hadn’t changed any of my hair care products so I knew it was the water and that I had to do something about it fast. The Chanson Spa Shower Filter seemed like the perfect solution, so I ordered one and am pleased to share my results.
Installation took less than five minutes and required no tools. I instantly noticed an absence of the harsh chemical smell that had previously plagued the water. I was worried that the addition of the shower filter might negatively effect my water pressure since I already use an eco-friendly showerhead but if anything the water pressure seemed more powerful. The water temperature was also hotter at a lower setting, and I can only imagine it’s due to the FIR energy. When I was done washing, my hairbrush went through easier. And best of all, my hair has now been restored to it’s shiny, smooth, dandruff-free self!
Here’s what my hair looked like after air-drying and running a brush through it BEFORE installing the Chanson Spa Shower Filter:
Scary, right? I couldn’t leave the house without some serious damage-control. But here’s what it looks like after just four washes with the Chanson Spa Shower Filter and the same exact shampoo, conditioner, etc.:

Alkaline Recipe: Iced Coffee

Coffee beans are considered acidic, however preparing them with alkaline ionized water can help offset the acidity. Alkaline ionized water also helps pull out the flavor of coffee more effectively, resulting in a rounder, bolder flavor. You will find that you don’t need to use as many coffee beans or grounds when brewing with alkaline ionized water because of this. Amazingly, you do not even need to heat the water in order to brew it as alkaline ionized water is able to penetrate the beans/grounds deeper than regular water due to its microclustered size.

Iced Coffee Recipe

Serves 1

1 cup coffee made with alkaline ionized water
1/4 cup unsweetened soy or coconut milk
1/2 cup ice cubes (preferably made with alkaline ionized water)
Light agave nectar to taste

Directions: Brew your favorite coffee with alkaline ionized water. Pour coffee over ice, add soy or coconut milk and agave nectar and stir in large glass. This tastes just as good hot if you omit the ice. Enjoy!

2012 is the Year of the Water Dragon

January 23, 2012 marked the beginning of the year of the water dragon according to Chinese astrology, a time which only occurs every 60 years.

Dragons are a symbol of good fortune, and are the most revered of the 12 animals honored in Chinese astrology, and the only mythical animal featured. Throughout history parents in China have actually hoped and aimed to have their children born in dragon years (every 12 years).

As a Christian company, we at Chanson Water are not followers of astrology but thought some of our readers might find this interesting (and let’s face it: we needed an excuse to use this awesome water dragon pic).

We are of course most intrigued by the water part–an element which is featured every five years. Water is the source of life: it covers 70% of our planet and comprises 60%-70% of our bodies. In Chinese element theory, water produces wood, which signifies growth and is the natural element of the dragon.

The last time the Water Dragon made an appearance was in the year 1952. Major world events in 1952 included the beginning of Queen  Elizabeth II’s reign, the introduction of two of the most destructive weapons in history: the hydrogen bomb and the B-52 bomber, the first successful separation of Siamese twins, and a killer fog which descended on London and coined the word “smog.” So it will be interesting to see what 2012 will bring, especially with the US presidential election and of course all of the Mayan calendar end-of-the-world hype.

Chanson Water USA wishes you a safe and prosperous year as we work to bring you the latest in water ionization and water filtration technology. Visit us at for more information on our products.

What is the Difference Between a $4,000, a $2,000 and a $400 Water Ionizer?

If you are in the market for a water ionizer you may have noticed that there is a significant difference in price for certain models and wonder what could possibly justify such a difference. In reality, all electric water ionizers make good alkaline ionized water, regardless of brand, and all non-electric ionizers make alkaline water. Here we will address where the differences really lie in an effort to help you make an informed decision:

The $4,000 electric water ionizer – A MLM Model

You will receive the same health benefits of drinking and cooking with a $4,000 electric water ionizer as you will from an electric water ionizer which costs about half. The real reason that some models carry such a high price tag is because they are from a MLM (multi-level marketing) company which has to pay commission to eight different people with every sale. If you are anything like us, you will see that spending an extra $2,000 for the same product in order to pay bonuses to salespeople is ludicrous and will consider your other options.

The $1,300-2,300 electric water ionizer – All Chanson Water ionizers

All electric water ionizers produce three types of water with various pH levels: alkaline, filtered, and acidic. We drink the alkaline water with a pH of 8.0-9.5 for optimal health, use the filtered water for small children and taking with medication, and apply the acidic water on our skin and hair and can clean and disinfect our homes, cars and offices with it.

Because an electric water ionizer is such a versatile and multipurpose appliance, you could potentially save thousands per year by eliminating the need for bottled water, mouthwash, toner, half of all cleaning supplies, skin creams, etc. by investing in an electric water ionizer. Chanson water ionizers carry a price tag in the $1,300-$2,300 range which means that machine will likely pay for itself in 2-3 years and be one of the best investments you will ever make.

The difference in prices on the Chanson models are largely attributed to water flow rate and various bells and whistles like an undercounter model to save counterspace, ability to use all natural Himalayan rock salt to make strong acid water in areas with source water issues and a special cleaning system.

$400 Water “Ionizers”/Alkalizers – Non-Electric Models

Because people started seeing the success that electric water ionizers were having, they looked for a way to cash in on the success cheaply and quickly. After all, if people were willing to spend up to $4,000 on an ionizer, wouldn’t people be willing to pay only 10% of that?

Because non-electrics leave out the key component of water ionization – electricity – they are not actually ionizers but alkalizers. They produce alkaline water which is only about two points more alkaline on the pH scale than the water that is run through them. Non-electrics do not produce filtered/purified/neutral water or the acidic water which is so valuable for skincare and cleaning purposes. In addition, the negative charge (low ORP) they produce is only about 1/3 of what an electric ionizer can produce which means you are only getting 1/3 of the antioxidants.

Even more disturbing, most non-electrics use mineral-stripping filtration which in most cases is provided by toxic De-Ionization (DI) Resin. When the resin has reached capacity (no way of knowing when without testing) it will actually allow the contaminants into your water and the resin itself may also leech into your water. They then attempt to re-mineralize the water with “secret ingredients” that are impossible to test or verify and have no testing to back them up or poof that they are safe for long-term human use.

A prominent salesman from another ionizer company (who has been in the industry for over nine years and had been drinking water from an electric ionizer) personally told us that he recently tried their new non-electric product exclusively for two months during which time the arthritis he has suffered from before discovering ionized water came back with a vengeance. Within two days of getting back on the electrically ionized water, the arthritis retreated completely. Our own health expert Ronnie Ruiz has used multiple NON electric ionizers exclusively for two week periods and has always noticed the superior health results of the ELECTRICALLY ionized water when returning to it, proving his theory that electricity is the key.

While the cost of these non-electrics may seem appealing, the decreased value they provide and the replacement costs actually add up to be less cost-effective than an a safer, more versatile, longer-lasting $2,000 electric ionizer purchase.

Congratulations to our Contest Winners!

Chanson Water USA would like to congratulate the winners of our Chanson MAX Ionizer Contest. The first-place winner is Jaime P. Jegonia of the Philippines who will receive a Chanson M.A.X ionizer, and the runner up is Andrea Hale of Phoenix, AZ who will receive a Chanson Spa Shower Filter and a two month supply of Power Powder Laundry Detergent!

Both winners submitted testimonials of their experiences with Chanson alkaline ionized water and medical records/doctors reports which show improvements in their health. We’re going to keep the medical records private, but here are the winning testimonials:

“In March 4, 2011 I have undergone Gastroscopy and Colonoscopy for the first time due to persistent stomach pain and found to have acute gastric ulcer and 6.7-cm ileocecal mass. The ileocecal mass was removed through Exploratory Laparotomy, Hemicolectomy End to End Anastomosis and confirmed to be malignant Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma with CD20 positive.

I was recommended to undergo R-CHOP chemotherapy and while I was preparing for it, I was led by the divine spirit to learn that there are more holistic way of destroying the cancer cells by starving and putting them into the alkaline environment while strengthening my immune system.

Making the switch to the healthier and proactive-positive lifestyle was not difficult for me. Aside from increasing my chances to win the battle by eating guyabano fruit and drinking tea made of its leaves and with lemon grass (these plants have been renowned as effective cancer cell killers) – the divine spirit again led me to another effective immune system booster and acid neutralizer: the Microclustered, strong Anti-Oxidant Alkaline water which I bought every other day from a doctor in our community (BCBP).

Then after a month, with the support of a good friend, I was able to purchase my Chanson Miracle MAX Water Ionizer on May 20, 2011, that brought very significant improvements on my wellness level and the highest confidence from God that I will win my major life battle.

Although, I cannot say that my present overall wellness is singly because of Chanson Miracle MAX, I am fully convinced even before I bought it that it will be like my King David in fighting my Lymphoma battle, and it did. Now, even if I miss some of the vegetables or fruits in my diet due to seasonal scarcity, I have no worries – as long as I have a Micro-clustered, Anti-Oxidant, Ionized Alkaline water from my Miracle MAX!

Many might say that this is too early to claim victory. I know this is a lifetime battle. However, with the kind of alkaline diet armory, strong self-commitment and self-determination, peace in my heart and strong faith in God, I am always assured with victory.

From a weakling to a very energetic and cheerful self: I run or bike 30-45 minutes at 4–6 times a week. After being on hiatus for 3 months, I went back to working 6-8 hours a day, including participation / service in all parish and community activities, and I still have much more reserve energy.”

-Jaime P. Jegonia, Philippines

“I have been suffering with hypoglycemia and weak liver and inefficient kidney functions since I was a teenager. I suffered from bulimia and anorexia for several years and I messed up my organs. I had headaches frequently in the last few years.

I purchased my Chanson Miracle ionizer in January of 2010. I had hard time first to drink lots of water, as I was never able to drink that much, but this water tastes and hydrates differently. I never feel full or bloated from it and I drink about 1/2-1 gallon a day!

My tests were repeated in September 2011 and I was very happy to see my results. My PH was steady at 7.0 which I was not able do do for many years, even being on vegetarian, then vegan and also raw foods. My PH never passed 6.0! The glucose serum is normal, so I no longer have issues with passing out when my glucose levels drop. They don’t drop anymore 🙂

The liver function was much improved and the kidney function was perfect! Now I have to mention, I do not take multivitamins and minerals anymore, except a D3 supplement (as that was low in my test- the only thing that was deficient), Vegan Rice Protein, Maca and Greens with probiotics.

I also drink Gynostemma tea (made with ionized water) every day. I know many changes happened also with my nutrition and lifestyle changes, but I have to give credit to Chanson ionizer as I believe that my kidney functions improved tremendously due to proper hydration and elimination. The headaches are completely gone and never returned. I believe it was severe dehydration and also toxicity of the body that manifested as headaches. The alkaline ionized water also cleanses and removes impurities from the body, and hydrates at the same time. What better can I ask for 🙂 Regular water is not able to do what ionized water is capable off. Period!”
