Chanson Water USA CEO Nedalee Thomas is pleased to announce the establishment of her new non-profit organization, The Sparrow Waterhouse Foundation.
The Sparrow Waterhouse Foundation works in the arenas of Health, Water, Housing and Ministry to families, orphans, communities and individuals domestically and internationally. Some of our support is provided directly such as a water ionizer donated to a cancer patient and other support is provided through our financial support to other ministries.
We work with India Christian Ministries who at this writing has over 7,000 churches in India. The growth they are seeing is so exponential that one dollar donated to them literally converts to one soul saved.
They have over 20 programs running and our hearts resonate with several of them. With 1.3 billion people, India is one of the largest, neediest and most unreached countries in the world. Half of the world’s orphans live in India. There are over 30 million child laborers or children sold into slavery. HIV/AIDS, malaria, polio, leprosy and water borne diseases and sex slavery are rampant.
By working with ICM, we are able to assist with their clean water development projects, provide housing, food and education for 100+ abandoned children with special needs. As well as support the 30+ centers for poor and at risk children to divert them from being sold into the sex trade.
10-90% of all Chanson Water USA sales will be donated to The Sparrow Waterhouse Foundation. 100% of Sparrow Waterhouse funds are donated directly to worthy causes unless you donate by credit card and then we must pay a 4.1% credit card processing fee. No one at Sparrow Waterhouse receives any salary. Our banking and web hosting fees are underwritten by the generosity of www.ChansonWater.com

Did you know that the average American child now receives two dozen vaccines by their second birthday?
In recent years, reports of children either dying, suffering permanent side effects, or temporary adverse side effects such as convulsions as a result of vaccines have surfaced with increased frequency, but the dangers of vaccines extend to adults as well.
It’s time we stop blindly following the Center for Disease Control (CDC’s) vaccination schedule and start questioning the ingredients, safety and efficiency of vaccines.
The Dangers of Vaccines
A look at a list of common ingredients in vaccines is astonishing. If you have ever received a vaccine, you’ve likely been shot up with aluminum, formaldehyde, antibiotics, MSG, thimerisol (a mercury-based preservative), and genetically modified organisms like egg protein, bovine (pig) extract and calf serum.
If you don’t want these ingredients in your food and water, why on earth would you elect to voluntarily inject yourself and your loved ones with them?
As with all pharmaceutical drugs, all vaccines are acidifying to the body. This means that they disrupt our natural pH balance and make our bodies steal alkaline minerals from our bones, teeth and muscles in order to self-correct. When we are over-acidic (as the majority of Americans are due to a poor diet and lifestyle), we are more prone to disease.
At this time no “clean” vaccines free of these types of ingredients currently exists. Each injection is a chemical cocktail that can cause temporary or permanent side effects, diseases and disorders like headaches, brain damage, paralysis, cancer, and the very disease you are trying to vaccinate against.
For example, studies have shown that children who have been vaccinated against whooping cough are actually more likely to get whooping cough than those who have not been vaccinated. American schools currently “require” this vaccine for all children entering 7th grade, but parents can and should sign a waiver to opt-out.
The Truth About Vaccines
Our bodies are naturally designed to heal and repair themselves. When you skin your knee, no action is needed, it will scab and heal over a matter of days. The idea of injecting toxic chemicals and artificial ingredients into our bodies to protect them from external diseases is ludacris.
Just like with other pharmaceutical drugs, the goal of pushing vaccines is financially-driven, not health-focused. Our government is using the guise of public health and safety to require these injections among our citizens, but has offered no proof as to the safety or effectiveness of the vaccines. Conventional doctors have been brainwashed. Just as our school teachers have to follow strict curriculum guidelines, our doctors now have to encourage the CDC’s vaccination schedule as though it were gospel.
According to Natural News, an investigative report by Dr. Lucija Tomljenovic, Ph.D., uncovered more than 30 years of hidden government documents exposing vaccines as fraud. While she focused mainly on the British health system’s elaborate cover-up of its own national vaccination program, the study’s findings still apply to vaccines and vaccination schedules in general.
In reality, the odds of you contracting polio, measles, mumps, chicken pox and other diseases that vaccines commonly “prevent” is very low, and not because of the rate of vaccinated persons. Even with something as common as the flu, you only have a 20% chance of getting it in the first place, and thusfar the flu vaccine has only proven to be effective in 1.5% of cases!
A No-Vaccine Natural Health Approach
Rather than continuing to be vaccinated every time flu season rolls around or your doctor alerts you that a vaccine is “needed”, there are many ways you can boost your immune system and safeguard your health naturally.
All disease is caused by toxicity and deficiency, which is why creating a mineral-rich alkaline internal environment in the body is the key to health.
The easiest way to do this is to switch to ionized alkaline drinking water, and to drink half your body weight in ounces of this water daily. Ionized alkaline water is full of bioavailable minerals and antioxidants that nourish the body while simultaneously flushing toxins from the body. It can be made with an electric water ionizer for pennies on the gallon, and is believed by many to be the best drinking water on the planet.
Eating a plant-based diet rich in alkaline fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds is another way to alkalize the body, and taking vitamin D supplements and drinking herbal tea have also been found to bolster the immune system naturally.
Stress, lack of sleep, lack of exercise or vigorous exercise routines are all examples of acidifying lifestyle choices that can be reversed for acid-alkaline balance.
Another way to reduce toxins in the body is to limit exposure of acidic substances like drugs, alcohol, chemical cleaners and commercial beauty products. Ionized acidic water, which is also produced by an electric water ionizer, can replace many household cleaners and skin, beauty and hair care products.
By nourishing your body from the inside out and reducing your toxic load, you can render dangerous vaccines completely unnecessary.

Here is a complete list of all the posts:
It’s no secret that pharmaceutical drugs carry many dangerous side effects, especially now that drug companies are required to list them in their advertising.
In fact the side effects are often more severe than the ailment the drug is intended to treat. And when patients are forced to take multiple medications to treat multiple side effects, expensive and dangerous chemical cocktails can result.
Unfortunately, most people take whatever drugs their doctors prescribe them with little questioning, and doctors are inundated and even bribed to push new drugs all of the time, which is why they have been called “legal drug dealers.” In fact, many medical schools are now sponsored by pharmaceutical drug companies, and feature a mere two hours of nutritional training total.
Pharmaceutical drug statistics
- Prescription drug abuse is the nation’s leading cause of death, contributing to nearly 40,000 deaths annually
- Prescription drug addictions are most common with painkillers, depressants, and stimulants
- Enough painkillers were prescribed in 2010 to medicate each American adult every four hours for one month
- Seven of the top ten drugs used by kids in twelfth grade were prescription drugs
- About 7 million Americans abuse prescription drugs: 2 1/2 times more than all those using cocaine, heroin, hallucinogens and inhalants
- The National Institutes of Health (NIH) estimates that close to 20% of people over the age of 12 in the U.S. have used prescription drugs for non-medical purposes
Pharmaceutical drugs deplete minerals
Many people do not realize that their prescription drugs actually deplete minerals in the body. This is because all prescription drugs have an acidifying effect which your body corrects by pulling alkaline minerals to neutralize the acids.
Here is a list of some of the common drugs and what they deplete, as reported by Natural News:
- Anti-inflammatory drugs: Calcium, potassium, zinc, iron, Vitamins B6, C, D, K, folic acid, chromium, glutathione, Vitamins B6, C, D, and K
- NSAIDs: Folic acid, melatonin
- Aspirin/Salicylates: Vitamins C, K, B5, folic acid, calcium, iron and sodium
- Corticosteroids: Vitamins A, C, D, B6, B12, folic acid, calcium, magnesium, potassium, selenium and zinc
- Cochicine (used for gout): Vitamin B12, calcium, sodium, potassium, phosphorus, Beta-carotene
- Statins (Lipitor, Zocor, Crestor, etc.): Coenzyme Q10
- ACE Inhibitors for hypertension (Lisinopril, etc.): Zinc
Pharmaceutical drugs create toxicity in the body
Pharmaceutical drugs are loaded with chemicals and artificial and toxic ingredients, but considered “safe” in small doses. However, we all know that an overdose can result in death, and that many of them are habit-forming and highly addictive.
If you are taking a prescription or illegal drug, especially over a long period of time, that drug is bound to build up in your system, creating an acidic environment that is prone to disease.
Our bodies are designed to thrive with an alkaline internal environment, and the two causes of disease are toxicity and deficiency. So by taking toxic drugs which deplete the body of its natural alkaline minerals, we are setting ourselves up for disease and other ailments, perhaps even the every issues we are attempting to treat with the drug.
Try homeopathic remedies instead of pharmaceutical drugs
The FDA states that only a DRUG can “treat, prevent, or cure” a disease, despite the fact that homeopathic remedies have existed eons longer than anything the drug companies cooked up in a lab. This illustrates that the pharmaceutical industry has a hold on our government as well. They either have, are currently developing, or plan to develop a “pill for every ill.” Clearly, it is all financially-driven.
Ever notice how the majority of prescriptions don’t actually cure the disease? They are designed to cover up the problem, and only work if you continue taking (and thus paying for) the drug. Conventional doctors don’t recommend natural remedies because the pharmaceutical industry can’t patent or make money off of them, not because they don’t work.
Homeopathic remedies are almost always cheaper, safer, and better for your body than pharmaceutical drugs. You don’t need to be a hippy tree hugger to adopt them, and to turn away from prescription drugs.
The next time you have an ailment, try a quick internet search for a homeopathic solution. You will likely come away with several solutions that may work.
For example, many people don’t realize that dehydration is an underlying cause of many aches and pains, including headaches and backaches. The next time you have a headache, try reaching for a glass of water–preferably ionized alkaline water–instead of an acidifying pain killer.
By addressing the root of the problem instead of consuming drugs which merely cover up the problem, you are arming your body with what it needs to heal itself naturally.

There are many potential contaminants in our drinking water today. One you may not have heard much about are nitrates or nitrites, which are nitrogen-oxygen chemical units that combine with various organic and inorganic compounds and may be carcinogenic.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “The major sources of nitrates in drinking water are runoff from fertilizer use; leaking from septic tanks, sewage; and erosion of natural deposits.” They allow up to 10 mg/L or 10 ppm of nitrates in our drinking water.
The Problem With High Nitrate Levels
High nitrate levels pose the most risk to pregnant women, infants under six months, and adults with reduced stomach acidity.
Nitrate levels have been rising since the 1950s, leveled off in the 80s, and began rising again five years ago. The problem intensified when farmers were forced to plant record-levels of corn, drought-withered corn plants didn’t suck up all the nitrogen from the fertilizer, and then when heavy rains came they washed the fertilizer into rivers with the help of the drainage tiles that have been installed beneath many farms.
Mid-western U.S. states are most at risk for high nitrate levels in their drinking water due to corn farming. These states include Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Wisconsin and the eastern portions of Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota and South Dakota.
To keep the nitrate levels within the legal limit, parts of Iowa and Minnesota have been forced to use expensive nitrate-removal systems, and the cost is passed on to their residents.
How to Reduce Nitrates in Your Drinking Water
Unfortunately, boiling water does not remove nitrates, and nitrate levels could potentially spike before you receive word of it from your state.
The best way to protect you and your family from nitrates is with a quality drinking water filtration system.
Chanson offers the Nano Filtration System and the new non-electric Nano2, both of which are high quality modified reverse osmosis systems that reduce nitrates in drinking water by more than 85%. Unlike traditional reverse osmosis systems, both Nano filters leave beneficial alkaline minerals in your water, making it even healthier. Click here for more information or to order.
Our CEO and water expert Ronnie Ruiz was quoted in a recent Wall Street Journal article titled The Positives and Negatives of Ionized Water as part of their Aches & Claims series. Below is a reprint of the article in its entirety along with Ronnie’s thoughts.
The Positives and Negatives of Ionized Water
April 9, 2012, 6:49 p.m. ET
By LAURA JOHANNES
It would be hard to improve the healthfulness or cleaning power of water without adding any chemicals or supplements to it. But companies are claiming to do just that by “ionizing” water.
Enagic USA’s Kangen Water machine
Companies are selling machines that put drinking water through an “ionization” process. According to the companies, the process, also called “electrolysis,” is accomplished using negatively and positively charged electrodes. In the process, water atoms give electrons to the electrodes or receive them, according to a graphic on Chanson Water USA Inc.’s website. The result is a chemical reaction that results in water becoming more acid or alkaline. Tap water typically has a pH of around 7, or neutral; alkaline water has a pH of more than 7; acidic water, less than 7.
Companies say alkaline water has a variety of benefits, ranging from giving you energy to counteracting unhealthy effects of acidic foods you eat. Some scientists, however, say there aren’t any good studies supporting the ionized-water companies’ marketing claims.
Water ionizers, long sold internationally, have been generating increased interest in the U.S. during the past couple of years, says Pauli Undesser, director of regulatory and technical affairs at the Water Quality Association, a nonprofit trade group for the water-treatment industry.
Earth Trade Water Inc., Carlsbad, Calif., posts testimonials from professional athletes who say its ionized alkaline water boosts their performances by providing better hydration and aiding “energy” and “focus.”
Chanson Water USA, a Laguna Hills, Calif., unit of Chanson Taiwan LLC, says on its website that its ionized water has smaller clusters of water molecules than ordinary water and these “microclusters” are better able to “penetrate into more places in the body.”
In a marketing brochure, Enagic USA Inc., a Los Angeles unit of Japan’s Enagic Co., says its “Healthy Kangen Water”—which has a pH of 8.5 to 9.5—”helps your body balance the acidic effects” of eating foods such as meat and eggs. Enagic’s Leveluk SD501 model, which sells for $3,980, uses seven electrodes.
Enagic also says Kangen water tastes better with “superior mouth-feel.” In an informal blind taste test at a local spa offering Kangen water, I found the Kangen water tasted soft and velvety, but with a mineral aftertaste, compared with ordinary tap water.
The machines, which typically range from $1,000 to $6,000, are generally attached to a faucet, but some models go under the sink. The alkaline water, which the companies say is ideal for drinking and cooking, comes out of one of the machines’ spigots, while acid water, which can be used for cleaning, comes out of another. The degree of alkalinity is often adjustable. The machines have a built-in filter, which filters impurities just like any other water filter.
Besides drinking water, Enagic’s machines produce four other types of water. Enagic recommends using very acidic “sanitary water” for household disinfecting, such as sanitizing cutting boards and knives. “Beauty water” helps close facial pores after washing with it, the company says. Neutral water is intended for taking medications and making baby formula; and “strong” Kangen water, a very alkaline water, is intended for “cleansing power” in such tasks as removing toilet stains or floor stains.
Some doctors and scientists say the companies’ claims aren’t backed by good high-quality studies. “Human evidence is lacking, safety profile is lacking and it’s very expensive,” says Catherine Ulbricht, co-founder of National Standard Research Collaboration, a Cambridge, Mass. scientist-owned group that evaluates natural therapies.
“There is no basis for any health claims at all” for alkaline drinking water, adds Santa Barbara, Calif., gastroenterologist John Petrini, past president of the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy. After it is digested, food and water goes into the stomach and—no matter what pH it was when it entered—ends up leaving the stomach at a pH of about 6.8, Dr. Petrini says. And no matter what you eat, your body has effective mechanisms to keep your blood in a narrow range between 7.35 and 7.45, he adds.
Chemists say it’s logical that acidic or very alkaline water could be useful for cleaning, but there’s no evidence that the pH of water has any specific effect on skin or pores, says Washington, D.C., dermatologist Tina Alster.
Roberto Car, a professor of chemistry and physics at Princeton University, says the alkalization process described by Chanson sounds scientifically plausible, though he hasn’t examined the machine. But Chanson’s claim that alkaline water contains microclusters of molecules more readily absorbable by the body is “nonsense,” according to Dr. Car and others.
“Rubbish,” adds H. Eugene Stanley, a professor of chemistry and physics at Boston University. The structure of water—including how its molecules cluster—isn’t yet fully understood, scientists say.
Chanson Water CEO Ronnie Ruiz says a nuclear magnetic resonance test, the results of which are posted on the company’s website, shows that its water microclusters. He says 70% of customers who provide feedback report benefits, such as improvement in diabetes, improvement in depression, lower cholesterol levels. Mr. Ruiz says customers “love it, use it daily and see the absolute value in owning the machines. Science will at one point absolutely validate the health benefits.” Many of the benefits are due to the fact that the water has a negative charge and is an antioxidant, he adds.
Arizona physician Horst Filtzer—a paid medical adviser to Enagic and former chief of surgery at Cambridge Hospital, a Harvard teaching hospital—says alkaline water passes into the intestines “without much difficulty” since stomach acid isn’t produced in response to water. It doesn’t do much good to drink alkaline water with food—such as a steak—that does trigger an acid response, Dr. Filtzer says. He adds that he finds Kangen’s alkaline water doesn’t make him feel bloated like regular tap water does.
Peter L. Kopko, a chiropractor and chief science adviser to Earth Trade Water, says that alkaline minerals in its water—such as calcium and potassium—improve athletic performance because the help “counteract” acid buildup in the body during exertion. The company hasn’t done clinical studies on its water.
Ronnie’s thoughts on the article:
I am very happy about how the Wall Street Journal reported on ionized water, even if they included opposing views, to me this is fine because the people they interviewed have 0 experience and knowledge of ionized water, they have done no testing of the machines or the finished product the machines make, on the other hand, by the fact that such prestigious news outlets like the WSJ are reporting on ionized water is absolute evidence it is creating a buzz with its users.
I told the reporter “ionized water is growing in popularity because the majority of users have some positive health result and see the value in the machines both for the drinking water and acid water”. Very few people realize that by putting an ionizer and a Chanson pre-filter in their home they are actually saving money big time, there is only an initial expense with these products that repay the owners quickly then provide ongoing savings yearly.
Ronnie is available to speak in public, on TV, radio and in the news on a variety of subjects. For more information about ionized water, water ionizers, and water filtration, visit www.chansonwater.com.
Ronnie Ruiz is a world renowned water expert and innovator who has been has been coaching people on proper nutrition and exercise since 1984. For the last few years, Ronnie has been traveling the world lecturing on water filtration, water ionization and disease prevention methods. Ronnie is the CEO of Chanson Water USA, one of the world’s leading water ionization companies.
Although water ionizers have been improving the health of thousands for decades, they are still virtually unknown in the US. In addition to the many health benefits of drinking filtered alkaline ionized water, water ionizers also produce ionized acidic water which is known for its vast eco-friendly skincare and household cleaning purposes.
