In the fascinating book Reverse Aging by Sang Whang, it is explained that “the Japanese claim that one of the underlying causes of adult diseases is the accumulation of acids in our body. In order for a treatment to be effective it must remove these excess acids from the system, otherwise the treatment will only offer a temporary cure. It is for this reason that medical science is rather poor when it comes to curing adult diseases.”
Dr. Kuwata Kerijiroo explains that for severe kidney failure, water intake has to be restricted. However whereas ordinary tap water “contains phosphate, calcium carbonate and the acidic ions… [that] tend to reduce the efficiency of the calcium ions…” he feels that in controlled amounts, alkaline ionized water will “strengthen the heart and increase urination.” He goes on to claim that over the next six to twelve months, the patient should maintain an alkaline diet (reduced animal protein) and continue drinking alkaline ionized water to reduce the amounts of urea and uric acid in the blood. He also feels that through his clinical experience, patients undergoing kidney dialysis should also drink alkaline ionized water as well as those patients with kidney disease who do not respond to drugs.
