Here are the show notes:
THE PROBLEM – Sleep is such a fickle thing, and not getting good sleep is one of the top three issues Americans report having when it comes to their health and wellness (other two are lack of energy and pain) according to my unofficial survey.
You may have trouble falling asleep, staying asleep, having vivid or bad dreams, waking up feeling refreshed, etc.
ACIDIC SLEEP AIDS – Unfortunately all over the counter and prescription sleep aids are acidifying to the body which means they create a body which is less resistant to disease.75% of Americans require drinking half the body weight in ounces of water daily. Click To Tweet
NATURAL REMEDIES – There are some natural remedies and today we’re going to talk about water, particularly Ionized Alkaline Water which can be made with a Chanson water ionizer
DEHYDRATION – 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated. We recommend you drink a minimum of half your body weight in ounces of water daily.
OMG I HAVE TO PEE! Worried about having to get up during the night to urinate frequently after drinking all this water? That issue should go away after about a 2 week adjustment period.
DEHYDRATION DURING SLEEP – Most of us experience dehydration when we sleep, which can cause symptoms in the body such as muscle cramps, and overall restlessness, as the body basically struggles to utilize whatever fluids you have given it throughout the day to do what it needs to do.
So for example, we sweat while we sleep as part of the detoxification process, and if we are already dehydrated the body doesn’t have enough water to sweat out and holds onto the water it does have, creating water weight and a toxic body.
BRAIN – You may be sleeping, but your brain and body still have work to do. One of the first things to become dehydrated is our brain, which then cannot function at optimal level. We believe that when you are hydrated with ionized alkaline water, your brain is able to move you into the stages of sleep with greater ease.
NUTRIENT ASSIMILATION – While we sleep, we are assimilating the nutrients of the day, and ionized alkaline water helps the body to better absorb nutrients, making the body’s process easier as we sleep. Unlike any other water, ionized alkaline water is far more effective at delivering nutrients and oxygen on a cellular level.Ionized alkaline water enables your brain to move you into the stages of sleep with ease.

ACIDITY – We are most acidic at 2 am (and most alkaline at 2 pm). So by drinking ionized alkaline water before bed and upon waking you are helping your body buffer the acidity as well as the dehydration of slumber. We recommend drinking 1-2 glasses immediately upon rising to replace water lost during sleep through breathing and sweating
TESTIMONIALS – Many of our customers report better sleep after switching to Chanson Water, it’s one of the most common things they tell us and we hope it will help you too!
