Here are the show notes:

SUMMARY

Scientific terms are explained in very straightforward and easy to understand language in this book.

The basic theory that Whang proposes is that aging and death by natural causes are a result of acid buildup in the body and that we can live longer and be healthier by detoxing the body through things like ionized alkaline water and FIR technology.

A FEW OF MY FAVORITE EXCERPTS:

I don’t mean to turn the chronological clock back. I am not talking about the removal of wrinkles to look young while your interior is getting old. What I mean by reverse aging is to reduce the accumulated waste products pf a 50-year old body to be that of a 40-year old body or even younger. If the accumulated waste products have not caused irreversable damage to body tissues and organs by that time, their functions could also be revived.
 (pg 18-20)

When you drink alkaline water, you are drinking water with excess oxygen, not in the form of O2, but in the form of OH- which is very stable because it is mated with positively ionized alkaline minerals. Two of these hydroxyl ions can form a water molecule (H2O) and give out one oxygen atom. The alkaline mineral is used to detoxify poisonous acid compounds and when that happens the hydroxyl ion is freed to sup[ply excess oxygen to the cells to prevent the development of cancer. It is indeed a case of killing two birds with one stone. (pg 69)

What I am telling the world is to drink alkaline water in order to wash out acidic wastes, the universal cause of many adult diseases. I am also telling the world to stay away from soft drinks, especially colas because they are acidic. (pg 154)

What is Acidosis?

Acidosis is probably the most common issue affecting Americans today, yet few truly understand it. Many mislabel it with some of the common symptoms such as “dehydration” and “fatigue.” But once you understand how the body works, the source of the disease becomes clear: over acidification of the body.

In this video, Chanson Water CEO Nedalee Thomas explains what acidosis is, how it happens, and what you can do about it.

The Real Reason We Are Fat, Sick & Tired (And What To Do About It)

Dr. Lynda Frassetto of the University of California believes that humans have undergone an evolutionary change. Formerly, our bodies were able to effectively break down food and dispose of acid wastes with our kidneys and liver by using an ample supply of bicarbonate and hydroxyl buffers. But now–because we encounter more toxins, chemicals and pollutants in one day than our ancestors did in a lifetime–our bodies are struggling to keep up and to protect our kidneys and liver from total degradation and failure.

Dr. Frassetto studied 1,000 people and discovered that as we age, we lose buffering capacity in our blood, which reduces our ability to neutralize and remove acids. Since we cannot neutralize all the acid waste, it accumulates in our fatty deposits instead of being eliminated by our kidneys and liver as it once was.  Basically, our bodies have made the decision to preserve our kidneys and liver instead of processing the acid waste, and these wastes now show up as cholesterol, fatty acid, uric acid, sulfate, phosphate, kidney stones, etc.

But don’t blame your body! According to Dr. Robert O. Young, author of The pH Miracle, “Your fat is actually saving your life!” He believes: “There is only one sickness, one disease, and NOW one treatment. The one sickness and disease is the over-acidification of the blood and tissues due to an inverted way of living, eating, and thinking. The one treatment is to alkalize and energize our body.”

A healthy, pH-balanced body has alkaline reserves to battle diseases, infections, and viruses. But when our bodies are excessively acidic, they borrow essential minerals such as calcium, sodium, potassium, and magnesium from our vital organs and bones to “buffer” (neutralize) the acid. Excess acids in our bodies build up until we begin to show symptoms like digestive problems, headaches, excess weight, bone pains, constipation, muscle tension and pain, heart problems, high blood pressure, etc. When our bodies suffer from prolonged degradation or corrosion, it can manifest into dehabilitating and degenerative diseases like diabetes, hypertension, and osteoarthritis–all which tend to show up around age 45.

Dr. Leigh Erin Connealy, author of Be Perfectly Healthy says, “Acidosis…is especially troubling, because it interferes with optimal functioning in cells throughout the body. Production of white blood cells, which are involved in immunity, suffers most. In an acidic environment, poor quality white blood cells are produced, making it easy for infections to take hold. Restoring a proper pH balance helps boost the immune system and benefits the entire body.”

One easy way to rid your body of excess wastes and restore proper pH balance is to drink Chanson ionized alkaline water, which is able to deeply hydrate and detoxify the tissues and cells, and supply the body with bioavailable minerals and antioxidants.

Not only will Chanson ionized alkaline water help neutralize acidic wastes and build up ionic alkaline reserves, but its smaller molecular cluster size and negative electrical charge make it up to six times more hydrating than conventional water and allows the body to metabolize stored fat.

New Years Detox

Since overeating during the holidays has become commonplace and even “tradition”, most people naturally look to the new year as a fresh start and thus make resolutions to lose weight, quit bad habits like smoking, and start going to the gym.

Goal-setting/planning is the first step towards making positive changes for your health and we recommend that you consider a detox program to kick off the new year. A detox program can aid your body’s natural cleaning process by releasing excess toxins and wastes, improving circulation, and replenishing your supply of alkaline minerals.

There are many different detox methods that you can implement as well as time periods you can choose to do them for. We recommend that you consider the following suggestions and select the methods and time periods you feel are most realistic for you. Obviously the more methods you implement and the longer you do them for, the better your results may be, however taking on too much at once could be counterproductive if you fail to stick with them. We have heard of cleanses lasting anywhere from three days to three months, and people changing their diets for a lifetime or doing one-day-a-week fasts indefinitely.

A detox program can benefit virtually everyone, however if you have a health condition or are pregnant or nursing, you should discuss with your physician before starting any new eating or lifestyle program.

Here are some methods to naturally cleanse and detox your system:

Juice fasts

Fresh juice fasts (especially those high in greens) are a popular way to cleanse and alkalize the body. You can try starting every day with a glass of fresh juice, replace one meal a day with juice, or go all out and drink nothing but juice for weeks or months as Joe Cross did and inspired many others to do in the film “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead.” We recommend cucumber-pear and kale-green apple as easy and cleansing duos, but keep in mind that the act of juicing even the most alkaline of fruits and vegetables creates a mildly acidic juice, therefore we recommed that you offset the acidity by diluting with 9.5 Chanson alkaline ionized water. You can juice your own if you own a juicer, or there are companies on the internet that you can order from which will deliver fresh juice to your door daily for the duration of your cleanse.

Hydrate with alkaline ionized water

Drinking Chanson alkaline ionized water is essential throughout any detox program because it helps to flush out the many toxins that will be stirred up and eliminated from fat stores and organs in your body like your lymphatic system and your kidneys. Ionized water is microclustered which means it penetrates cells deeper than traditional water and can thus flush them out more effectively. A Chanson water ionizer is a wonderful investment for overall day-to-day health, not just during a detox. You can also try one day a week “water fasts” where you drink nothing but Chanson ionized water to cleanse your system.

Liquid feasts

One of the reasons juice and water fasts are so effective is because they give your body a break from having to work so hard to break down your food for digestion. Therefore you can also try a liquid diet of blending or pureeing your food if you wish to consume more than just juice or water. Soups and smoothies are examples of liquid feast “dishes” you can try and are recommended by Dr. Robert O. Young in his book “The pH Miracle for Weight Loss.”

Cut the crap

When we consume unnatural foods, they can leave behind a dense residue in our cells, which can turn into excess weight, body odor, wrinkles, cellulite and premature aging. Therefore, sugar, artificial sweeteners, animal products, processed foods, and fried foods should be eliminated from your diet during a detox and reduced in general for overall health. For example, just because coffee, alcohol, milk and sodas are liquids does not mean that they are acceptable for a liquid feast. Likewise, ordering “fresh juice” off of a Jamba Juice menu is not going to have the desired effect due to the excess sugar their smoothies contain. Dairy products clog your system and are acidifying, so avoid yogurt also.

Eat raw

If you choose to incorporate some solid foods into your diet, then you should rely heavily on raw alkaline fruits and vegetables as snacks, starters and even meals. Raw foods are more nutrient-dense than cooked foods and their negative ionic charge is the opposite of the positive ionic charge of toxins in our cells. The fiber found in fruits and vegetables will also help with elimination as well. Consider munching on carrot, celery and bell pepper sticks dipped in hummus, salads with oil-based dressings, and fruits dipped in almond butter.

Colonics

According to Dr. Norman Walker, author of “Colon Health: The Key to a Vibrant Life”: “The elimination of undigested food and other waste products is equally important as the proper digestion and assimilation of food…the very best diets can be no better than the very worst if the sewage system of the colon is clogged with a collection of waste and corruption.” A colonic is a safe and effective method for cleansing the bowels and can be performed by a professional or done in the comfort of your own home with the use of a colema board as often as once a month. Without them, buildup in the bowels can lead to prevention of the absorption of water and nutrients, constipation, growth of harmful bacteria and yeast and autointoxication (when toxins are absorbed into the bloodstream through the colon wall).

Go green

While you’re working hard to watch what goes into and comes out of your body, don’t forget to keep an eye on the toxins you may be exposing yourself to externally. Virtually all chemical-based household cleaners and many personal beauty products like shampoos, deodorants and toothpastes are acidifying to the body and contain known carcinogens. Chanson ionized acidic water–the byproduct of a water ionizer–is an all-natural alternative to everything from mouthwash and facial toner to Windex and Lysol.

Exercise–the alkaline way

“Instead of hard exercise (which creates lactic acid), one should practice traditional Asian soft-style exercises such as yoga, Tai Chi, and Chi Gung on a daily basis throughout the duration of any detox program” according to Daniel Reid, author of “The Tao of Detox.” Don’t have the time and/or desire to learn traditional Asian exercises? Rebounding on a mini-trampoline can dramatically improve lymph flow while exercising every cell in the body, and walking, stretching and aerobic exercise also works well.

Pledge to be stress-free

When stress hormones are released into the system in large amounts, toxins are created and can slow down the detoxification enzymes in the liver. Negative emotions are also very damaging and should be minimized. Dr. Young has seen negative emotions have a more damaging effect on one’s alkalinity than the worst of foods, and world-renowned photographer Dr. Masaru Emoto has documented the effects of negative words on water crystals with pictures (this is important considering that we are about 70% water!)

Practice hydrotherapy

To increase circulation and help flush out toxins, try alternating a very hot shower for five minutes, with cold water for 30 seconds, for a series of three times in a row before wrapping in a towel and getting into bed for 30 minutes. But don’t try this before installing a Chanson Spa Shower Filter, which filters harmful chlorines and chloramines from the water which would otherwise be absorbed by your skin and lungs.

Sweat it out

One way toxins are released from the body is through perspiration, which is why most spas offer saunas and steam rooms. Infrared saunas are preferred as they can cause you to perspire more than twice as much, and if you are going to be using a steam room or wet sauna make sure it is using filtered water so that you are not inhaling the contaminants found in tap water.

Breathe deeply

“Deep breathing greatly enhances oxygenation of the blood and tissues, which helps neutralize acidosis and maintains a healthy alkaline environment inside the body” according to Reid. One of the main ways to move the lymph system is through breathing deeply, so try focusing on your breathing several times throughout the day.

Dry skin brushing

To increase lymph flow, you can use a natural bristle brush on dry skin by brushing in circular motions towards the heart. This will help your lymph system rid itself of the toxins that collect in the lymph glands and keep  the pores of the skin open.

We hope that you will find these detox suggestions helpful and will try to implement one or more of them this new year for better health.
