America: Home of the Drugged & Deceived? Part 2: Cancer

Did you know that one in two men and one in three women are now predicted to contract cancer during their lifetime?

It’s a growing epidemic that interestingly enough did not begin to boom until after World War II when processed foods, additives, and pharmaceutical drugs became mainstream.

The Truth About Cancer

We all know that after decades of research, chemotherapy, radiation, and invasive surgery are still the go-to treatments recommended by conventional doctors. Yet, chemotherapy is only effective in 2% of cases, and both chemo and radiation actually poison and weaken the body, contributing to the disease!

Most of the time, even when doctors claim that they have removed all of the cancer cells via surgery, the cancer will appear in another area of the body, because surgery does not remove the root cause of the disease: over acidity in the body.

So why do doctors continue to poison, maim, and kill their patients year after year, when the odds of curing them are so severely stacked against them?

Money.

For every one person who has cancer, there are eight people making money off of them.

A natural cure for cancer exists, and has been known for decades. But there’s no real profit in it, so the cancer industry–yes it is an industry, led by the American Cancer Society–has done everything in their power to conceal this information so that they can continue to benefit on the conventional cancer “treatment” methods.

They have gone so far as to smear the allopaths as snake oil salesmen, prevent American doctors from recommending natural treatments, cause nothing but a drug to be legally allowed to claim to “treat, prevent or cure” a disease, tamper with studies to show false hope for conventional cancer treatments, and even assassinate people who have tried to expose the truth.

But I’m here to tell you the truth, and to arm you with the information that can prevent you from losing yet another friend or family member to cancer.

The Real Cause of Cancer

Cancer is not something that happens to you at random, nor is it truly inherited through genetics. Cancer is a lifestyle disease and a mutation of cells caused by toxicity and deficiency.

We live in an over toxic world and are exposed to more toxins in one day than our ancestors were in a lifetime. Because of this our bodies are constantly struggling to stay in pH balance. In fact, if our blood becomes too acidic we die, and our bodies will actually rob alkaline minerals from our bones, muscles and teeth just to regulate our pH.

The problem is that the Standard American Diet (SAD) is extremely acidic. When we aren’t consuming enough alkaline minerals to offset the acidity in our diet and lifestyles, we become both mineral deficient and over-toxic (over-acid).

This sets us up for all forms of disease including cancer.

Natural Cures for Cancer

Disease cannot thrive in an alkaline environment, so the key to preventing and even reversing cancer naturally is to detoxify and replenish your alkaline mineral supply daily. There are many ways to do this, and here are some suggestions to get started:

#1. Eat more alkaline foods

Alkaline foods tend to be the natural plant-based foods that you inherently know are good for you, while processed, pre-packaged, fast foods and junk foods are acidifying to the body. Start introducing more organic fruits and veggies, nuts and seeds into your diet and try to crowd out the bad with the good. Daily juicing and green smoothies are a great way to increase the amount of fruit and vegetable servings you consume, however stay away from the really sweet fruits. Ideally you will want to be eating 80% alkaline foods and only 20% acidic foods.

#2. Switch to alkaline ionized water

Dr. Keiichi Morishita M.D., author of The Hidden Truth of Cancer says, “Drinking water that has a high alkaline pH, because of its de-acidifying effect, will help in preventing cancer. In Asia, alkaline water is regularly served to patients, and is considered a regular part of treatment.” Proper hydration is extremely important in the body and a great way to flush out toxins. Aim to drink at least half your body weight in ounces of ionized alkaline water from an electric water ionizer daily.

#3. Reduce your exposure to household toxins

Living a green lifestyle is a great way to reduce the amount of toxins in your home. This includes switching your cleaning products and beauty and skin care products, most of which are loaded with toxic chemicals. Ionized acidic water from an electric water ionizer is an all-natural and antibacterial fluid that can replace many of these products including glass cleaner, floor cleaner, all-purpose spray, hand sanitizer, facial toner, mouthwash and much more.

#4. Filter your tap water

Tap water is loaded with cancer-causing chemicals like chlorine, chloramines and fluoride. Even if you aren’t drinking your tap water, a drinking water filter is necessary if you use tap water when cooking. Many of the chemicals in tap water are actually inhaled when you take a shower, flush the toilet, and use the dishwasher or washing machine, so a shower filter and/or whole house filter can also reduce the amount of toxins in your home.

#5. Try natural detoxification methods

There are many detoxification methods that have been proven to be effective against cancer including infra red saunas, coffee enemas, hydrotherapy, colon cleanses, natural clay baths, and fasting, so implementing one or several of these methods can clean out your system and speed your recovery process.

Top 3 Pieces of Beauty Advice You Should Rethink

Beauty magazines always seem to spout the same general pieces of advice over and over again. What they almost always fail to do is expand on their advice in a way that makes their little glimmers of wisdom truly helpful.

We’ve taken the top three pieces of advice we’ve seen recycled over and over again and expanded on them in a way that can help you take their basic, generic, age-old tip to new heights.

1. Their advice: Drink 8-10 glasses of water a day

Our advice: Drink ionized alkaline water from a water ionizer (a minimum of half your body weight in ounces daily).

Not just any water will do. Granted, the magazines don’t want to tell you that bottled water is bad for you when SmartWater paid an astronomical amount of money to have a sexy Jennifer Aniston ad on the next page. And with all of the horrors of unfiltered tap water out there, they certainly can’t recommend basic old tap water either. Since no one is paying for water ionizer ads to grace their glossy pages, they’re certainly not going to sing the praises of ionized alkaline water just yet.

Regardless of the politics behind the mags non-disclosure, alkaline ionized water is the healthiest water on the planet. It contains more antioxidants than a glass of OJ, and is microclustered to hydrate and detoxify in a way that bottled and tap waters couldn’t dream of. It is full of bioavailable minerals, and has a pH level that promotes overall health and wellness.

2. Their advice: Wear sunblock to prevent wrinkles and skin cancer

Our advice: Wear natural mineral sunscreen

Commercial sunscreens are loaded with acidic chemicals and artifical ingredients which are known to generate free radicals, mimic estrogen, accumulate in fat body stores, and are now being linked to cancer.

All-natural mineral sunscreens are a pricey alternative to drugstore brands, but are not nearly as expensive as conventional skin cancer treatment!

3. Their advice: Wash your face in the morning and before bed

Our advice: Wash your face with ionized acidic water in the morning and before bed

Unless you are using a whole house filtration system which strips your water of chemicals like chlorine and reduces the pH of your water by also removing the alkaline minerals, the water that comes out of your bathroom faucet is federally regulated to be at least mildly alkaline and in most cases chlorinated.

The problem with this is that our skin thrives in an acidic environment of 5.5-6.0 pH in order to fight off bacteria, and our skin absorbs 60% of the chemicals and contaminants that are applied. So not only are we using the wrong pH water on our skin but we’re adding chemicals and contaminants to it when we are supposed to be cleansing and washing away impurities!

Ionized acidic water from a water ionizer is the perfect water for washing your hands and face with because it is the right pH, and–when paired with a prefilter or whole house filtration system–is virtually chemical-free. It can leave skin smoother, softer and even reduce lines and wrinkles and act as an all-natural toner, which is why the Japanese refer to it as “beauty water.”

Don’t Let Your Ionized Acidic Water Go Down the Drain!

Most people purchase a water ionizer for the vast health benefits of drinking alkaline ionized water. However, alkaline water is only half of the benefit of owing an ionizer. The by-product that water ionizers produce–ionized acidic water–has a myriad of benefits from body, skin and hair care to household and industrial cleaning.

Ionized acidic water is water rich in H+ ions, which occurs when water ionizers electrolyze ordinary tap water and separate them into two streams–alkaline and acidic. The water is divided at a 70:30 ratio, and oftentimes, users allow the acid water to travel from its rubber drainage spout right down the drain, literally wasting one of the most versatile, eco-friendly products on the planet!

Fortunately, it is possible to collect and store ionized acidic water effectively. It should keep its strength for 90 days provided that you minimize its exposure to light and oxygen by storing it in a closed, opaque container.

Chanson water has been 3rd party lab tested and verified to make strong acid water which disinfects on contact when made at 2.7 pH. Many brands of ionizers can’t make strong acid water, or can’t make it without using chemical solutions. Chanson is very proud that our machines can make strong acid water in 70% of all water sources without alteration, and for the remaining 30% we are the first company to use natural mineral-rich Himalayan salt instead of chemicals to create strong acidic water with the Chanson Miracle M.A.X. water ionizer.

Here are a few ways to collect and put your ionized acidic water to work for you:

  • Collect it in cups or a watering can and use it to water plants daily. Most potted plants and plants in your landscape crave acid water, and will thrive and grow faster when watered with it.
  • Purchase some small cobalt or amber glass spray bottles to fill with 2.7-5.5 pH water and store in the medicine cabinet, and your purse or gym bag. Use as an all-natural facial toner, hand sanitizer, aftershave, deodorant and on rashes and bug bites.
  • Collect it in a bucket and use to wash your car, bike, motorcycle or boat with.
  • Fill opaque plastic spray bottles with 2.7-5.5 pH water, and store them under the kitchen and bathroom sink. Use for household cleaning and disinfecting purposes like glass, tile, floors, stain removal, sinks, toilets, doorknobs, and cutting boards. Must be 2.7 pH to disinfect, and not all brands of ionizers can produce water this low without chemical alteration.
  • Recycle an empty opaque shampoo or conditioner bottle and use 5.5-6.0 pH ionized acid water as a final hair rinse.
  • Collect in cups and use to pre-rinse dishes before loading into the dishwasher.
  • Recycle an empty mouthwash bottle, fill it with 2.7-3.5 pH ionized acid water and add some peppermint or spearmint essential oil for minty freshness at a fraction of the cost of commercial, alcohol-based mouthwashes.
  • Collect it in a bucket and use to wash Fido to keep his coat shiny.

Still have more acid water than you know what to do with?

Consider bottling and giving some away to family, friends and neighbors with some suggestions on how to use it, and offer to let them refill their own bottles. Or you can even try selling it. Our SkinBalance product retails for $19.95 and is still only a fraction of the cost of the high-end skin care products it replaces.

After introducing acidic water to your friends and family, people are bound to want to know how they can get their own ionizer. You can become a Chanson Water dealer or affiliate and make money off of each sale!

9 Ways to Alkalize Your Beauty Routine

The average women applies a whopping 535 acidic chemicals to her skin daily, 60% of which are absorbed into her bloodstream. Clearly, what we put on our body is almost as important to health as what we put in it.

Here are 9 ways to reduce your exposure to toxins by alkalizing your beauty routine:

1. Install a Shower Filter

Municipalities use chlorine and chloramines to sanitize our water supply, but those chemicals can wreak havoc on your health when consumed, absorbed, or inhaled as a steam. Even just a 10-minute shower can cause you to absorb more chlorine than if you drank 64 ounces of the same water. Installing a Chanson Spa Shower Filter is a quick and easy way to reduce your exposure to chlorine, and will soften and energize your water in the process, creating softer, shinier hair and smoother skin.

2. Natural Soap/Shower Gel, Shampoo/Conditioner

Most body washes and shampoos contain sulfites and other chemicals. Liquid castile soap is a safe, paraben and sulfite-free gentle cleanser that can be used on the body and hair. You can also try forgoing conditioner and just rinsing hair with ionized acidic water from a Chanson ionizer for an all-natural shine.

3. Fluoride-Free Toothpaste and Alcohol-Free Mouthwash

Fluoride is slightly more toxic than lead, and if ingested, a tube of fluoridated toothpaste could kill a small child. Try a fluoride-free toothpaste or make your own by mixing a blend of baking soda, peroxide and peppermint or spearmint essential oil (optional). Most mouthwashes are filled with alcohol but you can look for alcohol-free versions or make your own by adding a couple drops of peppermint or spearmint essential oil to a bottle of Chanson ionized acidic water.

4. Paraben-Free Moisturizer, Body Lotion

Parabens are common preservatives that have been linked to cancer and can cause allergies. Fortunately, many popular brands of moisturizers now offer paraben-free versions of their lotion formulas.

5. All-Natural Facial Toner, Aftershave

Most facial toners are also full of alcohol which is very drying to the skin. Chanson ionized acidic water is a wonderful all-natural facial toner, aftershave, and hand sanitizer, and you can even spray it on rashes, scrapes and bug bites to help the healing process. Make your own for pennies on the gallon with a Chanson water ionizer (prices start at $1,295) or try a 4 oz. bottle of our SkinBalance product for $19.95.

6. Natural Deodorant

Most deodorants on the market contain aluminum, which is easily absorbed into the bloodstream and considered to be a possible cause of Alzheimers disease. Look for aluminum-free varieties or try making your own.

7. Mineral Makeup

The average woman will eat nearly four pounds of lipstick in her lifetime, and an FDA study found lead in 100% of the lipsticks they tested. Consider mineral makeup for everything from eyeshadow to lipstick to reduce your exposure to these harmful toxins.

8. Natural Sunscreen/Sunblock

Commercial sunblocks and sunscreens contain a host of toxic ingredients that can lead to cancer and other health issues! Natural, mineral-based sunscreens that you can buy or make yourself are an alkaline alternative.

9. Natural Perfumes

Most perfumes on the market are synthetic and put in a base of alcohol. Seek out all-natural scents or try making your own by blending essential oils in a base of jojoba oil.

Testimonial: Ionized Acidic Water for Sore Throats

 

Not only is Chanson acidic water effective against bacterial issues but it is also safe for both adults and children!

Here’s a recent testimonial we received from one of our youngest customers:

“I woke up with a sore throat this morning and tried a honey lemon cough drop but that only took the pain away for about ten minutes. Then my mom remembered that acid water is supposed to help with sore throats. I got some from our water ionizer and gargled with it, and the pain immediately went away and has not come back! I thought I might have to gargle again after eating but the pain is totally gone. I was so excited, I told my mom we should put that on their web site!”

–Hannah M., age 11, Lake Elsinore, CA

3 Natural Remedies for Pain Relief

There are a number of painkillers on the market. Unfortunately, all medication (with the exception of some natural and homeopathic remedies) have an acidifying effect on the body. This means that they contribute to an acidic environment which is the opposite of the alkaline environment our body thrives in.

Continuous use of over the counter medications for pain relief can actually prolong the problem–by constantly flooding your body with dehydrating and acidifying substances, you are creating an environment where pain and discomfort is likely to occur, as well as other side effects requiring more medication! Fortunately, natural pain remedies are available.

Alkaline Ionized Water For All-Natural Pain Relief

Staying hydrated can help relieve pain and prevent injuries or discomfort from occurring the first place. Studies have shown that if you have a headache and opt to drink a full glass of water instead of taking a painkiller, the water alone may get rid of the headache. Other studies have shown that arthritic and back pains have a root in inflammation, which may be alleviated and prevented by staying properly hydrated. But it’s important to hydrate not only with the right amount of water, but with the right kind of water.

Alkaline ionized water hydrates up to six times better than conventional water due to its microclustered size which is more easily absorbed by the body. It also nourishes the body by providing bioavailable alkaline minerals, contains more antioxidants than orange juice,  and has the ability to soothe inflammation of many kinds from the inside out.

Alkaline ionized water can be produced in your home by hooking a Chanson water ionizer up to your faucet. We recommend that you drink a minimum of half your body weight in ounces daily.

All-Natural Topical Pain Relief

In addition to hydrating the body with alkaline ionized water, a topical application of high alkaline water often provides temporary pain relief. Strong alkaline ionized water neutralizes inflammation in the muscle and reduces oxidation which is a byproduct of inflammation.

Just soak a rag in 10+ pH alkaline ionized water and apply to the sore area for a non-addictive, all natural remedy.

DJ Carrasco, pitcher for the New York Mets says, “I have used the water not to just drink but, for the healing effects of it too when just soaking a towel and putting it on the hurt area for few minutes it truly works.”

With this remedy, you may no longer have to worry about the possibility of chemical dependency on over-the-counter and prescription painkillers or the effects those chemicals may have on your body!

External Healing of Cuts and Scrapes

Water ionizers also produce a low pH water that is great for external uses like cuts, scrapes, and rashes because it is the same pH of our skin. UFC fighter Jose Veira, along with several MMA fighters at Jackson’s Gym in Albuquerque, New Mexico use Chanson ionized acidic water externally for faster healing, in addition to drinking Chanson ionized alkaline water for better recovery times and optimal hydration.
