Still not sure what exactly makes ionized water so special or if maybe it’s just a hoax?
In this Water Wednesday episode we discuss the book Healing Waters: The Powerful Health Benefits of Ionized H2O by Dr. Ben Johnson.
Don’t have time to watch?
Here are the show notes:
Science has duplicated the best drinking water on earth through the power of electrolysis using a device you can install in your home (water ionizer).
A FEW OF MY FAVORITE EXCERPTS:
From fatigue to premature aging, from asthma to inflammation, and from dry skin to diabetes, the body’s need for more water often lie at the root of the problem. And although health professional shave touted the importance of proper hydration for several years, urging us to fit in our eight glasses daily, these problems remain. Why? Because when it comes to water’s impact on your body, quality is just as important as quantity, especially for the prevention and treatment of disease…The solution is ionized water, which, for decades, has been used in our countries as a means of improving heath. Superior to both distilled and filtered water, ionized water is H2O that has undergone a mild–and safe–electrolyzing process that boosts its vitality, rids it of harmful acidifying chemicals, and makes it capable of transporting nutrients and oxygen all over your body quickly and effectively. Moreover, technological advances have made it possible for this scientific process to take place in your own home, which means that it can easily become part of your lifestyle and daily routine.

By studying his fellow prisoners, Dr. Bathmanghelidj concluded not only that many serious health problems are caused by a water deficit, but also that such problems can be remedied simply by drinking more water. In the years that followed his release from prison, Dr. Batmanghelidj went on to discover the potency of water in treating a number of conditions, including:
- Addictive urges related to alcohol, caffeine, and various drugs.
- Anxiety, depression, and stress
- Attention-deficit disorders in both adults and children
- Back, joint, and muscle pain
- Blood clots
- Constipation and diarrhea
- Gastrointestinal problems
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
- Hot flashes
- Impotence and loss of libido
- Insomnia and other sleep disorders
- Kidney stones
- Memory problems
- Morning sickness during pregnancy
- Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
- Respiratory and sinus problems
- Urinary tract infections (pg 8-9)
Although the ionized water advocated in this book is produced with an electrolyzing device, it’s health-enhancing properties are also found in nature. In fact, it was the study of the water of the Hunza–a tiny region tucked away in the Himalayas of northwest Pakistan–that made scientists search for a way to reproduce it for the masses.The Hunza people have been renowned for their excellent health and longevity for nearly a century, as they generally live past the age of 100 free of bone loss, tooth decay, and degenerative diseases such as heart disease and cancer. Indeed, when asked for the secret to his peoples’ vibrant health, a Hunza king replied, “It’s the water.” (pg 26)
Arguably, ionized water is our most overlooked tool in the struggle against the related issues of chronic dehydration and acid-alkaline imbalance. Drinking water that has been electrolyzed and filtered in an ionizer is the equivalent of drinking the fresh, glacier-fed water of the Hunza region, where the vast majority of people enjoy a long life free of chronic disease. Thanks to the innovative work on scientists around the world, it is now possible for anyone to drink water that is highly alkaline, rich in nutrients and minerals, and full of antioxidants-0-without having to leave home. The structural and chemical properties of ionized water, both acidic and alkaline, make it a unique type of H2O that can be a real asset to your health. Consuming alkaline ionized water is effective for preventing and treating disease. (pg 35)
