Getting to the Root of Disease: Toxicity & Deficiency

The cause of virtually all disease boils down to two things: toxicity and deficiency.
We live in an over toxic world. We are exposed to more toxins in one day than our ancestors were in a lifetime. And most of the foods lining grocery store shelves and being served at drive-thru’s these days are nutrient deficient.
So it’s no wonder that disease is more prevalent in today’s day and age than ever before.
Our bodies are designed to remain alkaline on the pH scale and unfortunately the American diet and lifestyle encourages an over-acidic state of being which is not conductive to health.
Fortunately there are many natural ways to prevent and even reverse diseases like cancer and diabetes as well as common ailments like allergies and inflammation.

Toxicity

Being over toxic (or over acid) means that your body has accumulated a number of harmful chemical toxins and is overloaded. Common signs of being over-toxic include excess weight, fatigue, and aches and pains.
The key is to detox to get back into pH balance, and there are a number of detox methods you can try, including:

1. Switching to ionized alkaline drinking water

Ionized alkaline water is microclustered and able to detox the body on a cellular level that standard tap and bottled water cannot reach. In fact it is so effective that one Chanson Water USA customer called to say he passed a drug test after ingesting large amounts of prescribed codeine for several years. The water is very cleansing and easier to drink because it does not leave a bloated or waterlogged feeling. You can make your own using an electric water ionizer. Studies show that a hydrated body detoxes more easily than a dehydrated body.

2. Sweating it out

Exercise, preferably soft, aerobic exercise that doesn’t create a lot of lactic acid, is a great way to rid the body of toxins. Some also prefer the use of an infrared sauna to remove excess toxins through the pores.

3. Clay detox

Rare earth mineral clay, along with a handful of other natural clays, can detox the body in a variety of ways. Add some to a glass   to water as a daily dietary supplement, bathe in it, or make a clay facial mask. Whichever way you use it, toxins will be naturally drawn out of the body.

4. Fasting

Fasting is a great way to give your body a break from digestion and allow it to naturally flush toxins from the body. If you have never fasted before it might be best to start with a fresh juice or liquid fast, while others might benefit best from a water only fast.

5. Reducing exposure to household toxins

Try natural alternatives for your cleaning supplies and bath and body products, most of which are chalk full of toxic chemicals. Numerous alternatives exist, but an easy one is ionized acidic water from a water ionizer because it’s antibacterial and leaves no residue or odor unlike things like apple cider vinegar and baking soda. Ionized acidic water can replace over 100 cleaning and beauty products including Lysol, window cleaner, mouthwash, facial toner, and bug spray.
Chanson also offers our new Miracle Sanitizer, which deodorizes and sanitizes air and liquids, making it a great alternative to chemical laden air fresheners.

Deficiency

Mineral deficiency is more common than you may think. Common signs of mineral deficiency include yeast and fungal infections, leg cramps, strong foot odor and white spots on fingernails.
Because the body cannot make it’s own minerals and actually has to steal from minerals reserves like the bones, teeth and muscles when processing acids and toxins in order to survive, getting enough minerals in your diet is essential.
Here are a few ways to combat deficiency:

1. Try the 80% alkaline/20% acidic diet

Alkaline foods like vegetables, non-sweet fruits, nuts and seeds are nutrient rich and promote health. By shifting what’s on your plate to 80% alkaline foods, you will be providing your body with a healthy supply of alkaline minerals. Drinking ionized alkaline water is also extremely effective because it is full of bioavailable alkaline minerals and antioxidants, and soaking your fruits and vegetables in this water increases its nutritional value.

2. Say goodbye to sodas and energy drinks

Soda is quite possibly the worst “edible” thing you could put in your mouth. It robs the body of minerals, is packed with sugar, and has no nutritional value. In fact, one sip of soda is so acidic that it takes 32 glasses of ionized alkaline water just to neutralize it!
Diet sodas are even worse because they use artificial sweeteners which further damage your neurological system. Eliminating or reducing soda and energy drinks from your diet can go a long way in balancing your nutrient levels. Replace with ionized alkaline water and fresh made green juice for best results.

3. Swap unhealthy foods for alkaline alternatives

There are many foods that we have been led to believe are good for us when in reality they are not. For example, contrary to popular belief, cow’s milk actually robs the body of calcium instead of providing it. This is because cow’s milk also contains phosphorus, which blocks the absorption of the calcium in the milk, triggering an automatic response in the body to pull calcium from the bones to process the acidic liquid! Switching to unsweetened almond, coconut or organic soy milk are better alternatives.

4. Take vitamins and supplements

Magnesium is possibly the most vital nutrient that most Americans are lacking. While various supplements exist, one of the best ways to get enough magnesium is by adding an Inline magnesium remineralizer to your Chanson water filter or ionizer. This form of magnesium is powdered for easier absorption, and when used with an electric water ionizer will be made bioavailable.
Take your health into your own hands before it’s too late. By both reducing toxins and increasing your alkaline mineral intake, you can effectively safeguard your health and even heal yourself of many diseases and conditions.

7 Healthy Habits That Can Change Your Life

Leo Babauta of Zen Habits teaches that you can turn anything into a habit, and that it’s important to conquer one habit at a time instead of getting burned out by trying to do a whole lifestyle shift at once. He says that it’s important to start small, and gives the example of flossing saying that instead of committing to flossing daily, commit to flossing ONE tooth. Surely once you’ve started you will find yourself flossing the rest of them, and the key is to set goals so ridiculously small that you can’t imagine not doing them.
With this in mind, we compiled the following list of healthy habits. We recommend that you pick the one that sounds the least challenging to you, start conquering it today, and then move on to the next habit in 3-4 weeks or so.
Here are 7 healthy habits that can change your life:
1. Hydrate properly
Most of us simply do not drink enough water to keep our body adequately hydrated. The new recommendation is to drink half of your body weight in ounces of water daily, and more if you live in a hot climate or are extremely active. Work your way up to this goal one day at a time. For example, if your target is to drink 80 ounces per day and you are currently only drinking 16 ounces, add another glass today, two tomorrow, and so on until you reach your goal. Ionized alkaline water from a water ionizer has been found to hydrate up to six times better than standard water and does not leave a bloated or waterlogged feeling.
2. Get juicing
Green juices and smoothies made with fruits and vegetables like kale, spinach, avocado, cucumber and celery are extremely alkalizing and provide a wonderful boost to your immune system. If you aim to make one or two green juices or smoothies per day, you might start by making one a week, then two, and so on. Or you might try a 30 day challenge where you drink one every single day. By the end of the month you’ll be feeling so great and the habit will be so ingrained that you won’t want to stop!
3. Cut the crap
Do you eat a donut for breakfast every morning or a sugary dessert every night? Identify which items on your shopping list are the least healthy (anything processed and prepackaged is a good place to start) and then slowly stop buying them. So for example you could say goodbye to potato chips this week, cookies next week, and so on. If your pantry isn’t stocked with these unhealthy foods then you will be less likely to eat them!
4. Nourish your body with alkaline foods
If the idea of cutting the crap sounds too daunting, you can do the opposite and crowd out the bad with the good. Try adding one new alkaline food to your shopping cart each week or start eating one salad a day. As you start to eat more alkaline foods your taste buds will change and you will eventually no longer crave the processed crap.
5. Get Moving
Of course exercise is an integral part of health and a surefire way to boost your mood. Aim to do alkaline exercises like walking, yoga, Pilates, jogging, rebounding and stretching at least three times a week.
6. Switch to natural products
Commercial beauty products and cleaners contain toxic ingredients that wreak havoc on your health. But fortunately natural alternatives are available and you can slowly re-stock your medicine cabinet and cleaning supply closet when you develop the habit of reading labels. Try buying a fluoride-free toothpaste this week and an aluminum-free deodorant the next. A water ionizer will produce multipurpose low pH acid water that can replace everything from facial toner and hand sanitizer to Windex and Lysol.
7. Cut back on meat and dairy
Even if you’re not ready or never intend to become vegan or vegetarian, if you are eating large amounts of meat and/or dairy you can see health benefits like fewer allergies and increased energy by cutting back. Try implementing Meatless Mondays or replacing your cow’s milk with organic soy, almond or coconut milk.

9 Ways to Get Fit & Healthy in 2013

Would you like to lose weight or start eating healthier but don’t know where to start?

The following is an outline of habits you can shift in order to achieve best health. Try to choose at least a few of them to start implementing today, and gradually shifting more habits as you master the first changes.

#1. Stop Drinking Soda

Soda is quite frankly the worst “edible” thing we could possibly consume. Not only does it pack on the pounds and contain excessive amounts of sugar, but it contributes to an acidic environment in the body which breeds sickness and disease. Try to scale back slowly until you are consuming no soda at all or one every blue moon. Click here to read what the experts have to say on soda.

#2. Start Drinking Ionized Alkaline Water

75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated, and ionized alkaline water is the best drinking water of all because it contains bioavailable minerals, antioxidants, an alkaline pH, and is super hydrating. Try drinking half your body weight in ounces daily in order to stay fully hydrated (here are 7 Tips on How to Drink More Water). If you can’t afford a water ionizer just yet, start drinking quality filtered tap water by installing a Chanson prefilter.

#3. Try an 80% Alkaline/20% Acidic Diet

The alkaline diet is rich in whole foods like non-sweet fruits and vegetables and severely limits things like meat and dairy. It is not for everyone, but is very successful at weight loss and strengthening the immune system. Here are some acid-alkaline food charts and alkaline recipes as well as an article on 4 Tips to Shift Your Eating Habits to get you started.

#4. Reduce Your Sugar Intake

Sugar has been proven to be more additive than cocaine, and has been linked to cancer and other diseases. We eat way more of the white stuff than is healthy or natural. Here’s how to conquer your sugar cravings and choose some natural alternatives.

#5. Develop a Green Smoothie Habit

Have you heard? There’s a green smoothie revolution going on! Health-conscious people all around the globe are juicing and blending green concoctions like kale, avocado, grasses, cucumber and celery on a daily basis to give them a severe nutrition boost! Start experimenting with your favorite alkaline fruits and vegetables and aim to drink at least one green juice or smoothie a day. Here’s a tip on how to save time and money on your juicing and smoothie-making.

#6. Go on a Detox

You can jumpstart your health by clearing out some of the crud that has been accumulating with a detox. Try it for a day, a week, or even a month and feel the results!

#7. Green Your Home

Our homes are actually more toxic than a polluted city street. Everything from the carpet underneath your feet to the chemicals under your sink contain known carcinogens that wear down our immune systems and add to our bodies’ toxic load. Here are 10 ways to reduce toxins in your home and five all natural cleaners.

#8. Switch to Natural Beauty Products

The average woman wears over 500 chemicals on her face daily, 60% of which is absorbed into her bloodstream. Here’s how to alkalize your beauty routine (bonus: without all those wrinkle-causing chemicals on your face, you’ll look younger longer!)

#9. Alkalize Your Workout

We all know that we should work out more, and the benefits of exercise. But did you know that vigorous exercise can actually create acids which are harmful to the body and weaken joints? Pick some soft alkaline exercises you are comfortable with and start doing them regularly.
