9 Common Pregnancy Side Effects Ionized Alkaline Water Can Alleviate

Pregnancy tends to come with a host of uncomfortable and annoying side effects, however many of them are related to dehydration and can be easily alleviated by drinking enough filtered water.

Ionized alkaline water is particularly effective because it is supercharged with antioxidants and bioavailable alkaline minerals. It is also believed to be up to six times more hydrating than tap or bottled water, and has an alkaline pH which is beneficial to overall health.

Here are 9 common pregnancy side effects that can be remedied with ionized alkaline water:

1. Constipation

Up to 50% of women suffer from constipation at some point during their pregnancy. Reasons include increased progesterone, added pressure of the uterus on the rectum in late pregnancy, and increased iron supplementation. Drinking plenty of water can easily help alleviate constipation by lubricating the intestines and flushing waste out more effectively.

2. Swollen hands and feet

Ironically, water retention is a sign of dehydration. Your body holds onto excess water out of desperation and fear of not having enough water based on your water intake habits. This is common in the last trimester of pregnancy, when you should be drinking more water to compensate for the extra weight gain. By drinking a minimum of half your body weight in ounces daily, you allow your body to relax and let go of the excess water, only keeping what it really needs.

3. Lower back pain

Increased weight and pressure of the uterus commonly result in lower back pain in pregnant women, particularly in the second and third trimesters. Lower back pain is often a symptom of dehydration, because when the discs that cushion the gaps in between vertebrae are not well lubricated they create friction and inflammation which causes pain. Drinking water can help lubricate the discs in the spinal cord and alleviate the pain. Soaking a rag in strong ionized alkaline water and applying topically to the pain site is also very effective at temporarily relieving pain.

4. Heartburn/indigestion

Heartburn and indigestion are other side effects of increased progesterone and a growing uterus during pregnancy. Aiming to drink your water between meals instead of during meals can help prevent heartburn and indigestion, and drinking a cool glass of water while experiencing this pain can help alleviate it.

5. Morning sickness

The true cause of morning sickness is a lack of alkaline minerals because our bodies require increased levels of alkaline minerals during pregnancy to help develop the fetus. When we don’t have an ample supply of alkaline minerals we force our bodies to steal from our bones, muscles and teeth whenever we eat and drink acidic foods like hamburgers and soda. A sudden shift in our pH balance during pregnancy can result in morning sickness, so the key is to drink plenty of ionized alkaline water and eat an abundance of alkaline foods.

According to author Sang Whang, “Before a woman becomes pregnant, she should drink ample amount of alkaline water to avoid morning sickness and have a healthy baby. Without enough alkaline minerals, the woman ages considerably during pregnancy and may experience all kinds of post-delivery problems.”

6. Dry itchy skin

A growing pregnant belly stretches the skin and often results in dry, itchy skin. Staying properly hydrated can help skin stay smooth and supple and prevent itching.

7. Poor sleep

Poor sleep is common throughout pregnancy due to increased hormones, frequent urination, anxiety, discomfort, and other annoying side effects. Ionized alkaline water from an electric water ionizer has been found to promote better sleep overall. Pregnant women should attempt to fulfill their daily water quota by early evening to help prevent additional late night treks to the bathroom.

8. Low energy/fatigue

Low energy and fatigue are common in early and late pregnancy due to increased hormones and added weight, often compounded by a lack of quality sleep. Ionized alkaline water has been found to increase energy, because being properly hydrated helps the body function better on all levels. Pregnant women should attempt to meet their daily water quota by early evening to prevent additional late night trips to the restroom.

9. Brain Fog

They say that a woman’s brain shrinks 4% during pregnancy, which often   results in temporary forgetfulness. Ionized alkaline water has been shown to   improve memory and reduce brain fog by keeping the brain fully hydrated and   thus better able to function on all levels.

Remember the quality of the water you drink is just as important as the quantity. Most bottled waters are acidic and actually rob the body of alkaline minerals, while unfiltered tap water carries many chemicals and contaminants. Invest in a Chanson water ionizer today and enjoy fresh filtered ionized alkaline water for pennies on the gallon!

16 Ways to Kick Breast Cancer to the Curb–Naturally!

With breast cancer darkening the doorsteps of 1 in 8 U.S. women, it’s likely that you or a loved one has been or will be affected by this disease during your lifetime. But it doesn’t have to be that way, and chemo, radiation and surgery are not the only answers.

Here are 16 alternative therapies or things you can avoid:

1. Let Food Be Thy Medicine

It’s well documented that vegans and vegetarians have lower instances of cancer, and many have found solace in a raw, alkaline diet rich in green smoothies including Kris Carr, star of Crazy Sexy Cancer. According to Dr. Robert O. Young, author of The pH Miracle, you can create a disease-resistant body by alkalizing your body, because sickness and disease cannot thrive unless it has an acidic environment to live and grow in.

Nourish your body by eating more alkaline fruits and vegetables, testing out our alkaline recipes, buying at least certain foods organic, and soaking your produce in ionized alkaline water to revive them to their natural state.

2. Drink Up!

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.”

Chanson ionized alkaline water has antioxidant-like effects and is full of bioavailable minerals. It super hydrates and detoxifies, boosting your immune system. We recommend drinking a minimum of half your body weight in ounces daily.

3. Say Goodbye to Your Sweet Tooth

Sugar has been found to feed cancer cells and is highly acidic and more addictive than cocaine. With the average can of soda containing more teaspoons of sugar than the American Heart Association recommends women get in an entire day (among other health risks) soda has got to go from your diet. Artificial sweeteners are an even worse alternative with carcinogenic properties, so try all-natural stevia or xylitol instead.

4. Switch to Natural Beauty Products

Do you know which toxic chemicals are lurking in your beauty products? Here’s how to alkalize your beauty routine in order to reduce your exposure to cancer-causing toxins.

5. Ditch the Drain-O

Just like with commercial beauty products, traditional cleaning solutions and air fresheners are brimming with unhealthy chemicals. Fortunately there are natural alternatives.

6. Filter It!

Prevention Magazine cited filtering your tap water as the #1 way you can prevent cancer. Even if you have a Chanson Water ionizer, a drinking water pre-filter is essential to protecting you from all of the pollutants found in tap water. Additionally, a whole-house filter and shower filter can protect you and your family from inhaling, ingesting and absorbing harmful chlorine and chlorine byproducts.

7. Stress Less

Stress and other negative emotions have an extremely powerful acidic effect on our internal environments, even more so that diet! There have actually been people who healed their cancer through the power of positive thinking and watching funny movies to keep their spirits up. Try controlling negative emotions through meditation, positive thinking, letting go of the things which are beyond your control, and laughing whenever possible.

8. Say No to Mammograms

According to Russell L. Blaylock, MD, annual radiological breast exams are estimated to increase the risk of breast cancer by 20% over a 10 year period (most tumors actually take 10 years to detect). In addition to harmful radiation, mammography may also help spread existing cancer cells. Mammography results are sketchy at best: 70-80% of all positive mammograms do not, upon biopsy, show any presence of cancer, while false negatives clock in at 40% among women ages 40-49. Also, the NCI released evidence that mammography could cause 75 cases of breast cancer for every 15 it identifies in women under age 35. Therefore, a monthly self-check for lumps is a safer alternative to mammography.

9. Flush it Out

A routine detox program can benefit anyone looking to flush their body of toxins and get a fresh start. The world-famous Gerson cancer institute reportedly also uses coffee enemas as part of their holistic approach to cancer.

10. Go Bra-less

Studies show that the more hours a day a woman wears a bra, the higher her risk for breast cancer. So whenever possible, hang loose.

11. Give BPA the Boot!

BPA has been linked to increased occurrences of breast cancer. Limit your exposure by purchasing BPA-free plastic containers and water bottles, and reducing the amount of canned foods you consume.

12. Re-evaluate Your Work Habits

Studies show that women who work the night shift as well as women who work from home increase their risk of developing breast cancer. Presumably this is due to the fact that daytime sleep is not as effective as nighttime slumber, and because the average household is actually more toxic than a polluted city street! If you work the night shift try adjusting your work schedule if possible and making every Z count by darkening your bedroom. Those who work from home can try opening windows and investing in an air purifier in addition to suggestions #4 and #5 above.

13. Skip the Flu Shot

All immunizations are acidifying to the body and contain toxic and in many cases carcinogenic chemicals like formaldehyde. Boost your immune system naturally by following steps #1-#3 above instead of flooding your bloodstream with nasty cancer-causing toxins.

14. Work it Out

As you know, exercise essential to health. But strenuous exercise like running or spinning can actually negatively impact your health by flooding your body with acidic chemicals. Try engaging in regular alkaline exercise like walking, jogging, yoga, jumping on a mini-trampoline, and weight-bearing exercises.

15. Sleep it Off

Don’t negate the power of sleep to recharge your batteries. It’s impossible to properly function without enough sleep, and getting in bed before 11 pm has been proven to provide the best results. Aim to get 7-8 hours of sleep each night.

16. Breast is Best

If you have the option to breastfeed or bottle feed a child, studies show that breastfeeding can actually reduce your risk for breast cancer.

The majority of the above tips can be applied to all types of cancer, not just breast. For more information on natural cancer remedies and the truth behind the cancer industry, we highly recommend the eye-opening films Healing Cancer from Inside Out and Cancer is Curable NOW.

Say ‘No’ to the Flu Shot & Boost Your Immune System Naturally

Think you need an annual flu shot to protect yourself from getting sick this winter?

Think again.

According to Dr. J. Anthony Morris, the former Chief Vaccine Control Officer at the FDA, “There is no evidence that any influenza vaccine, thus far developed, is effective in preventing or mitigating any attack of influenza.”

In fact, studies show that flu vaccines only have a 1.5% effective rate. There are over 300 strains of the flu virus and the flu shot only addresses three of them, while actually increasing your risk for paralysis and brain damage in the form of Alzheimer’s and dementia.

Why the risk?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and  Prevention, “The following substances are found in flu vaccines: aluminum,  antibiotics, egg protein, formaldehyde, human aborted fetal apparatus (dead human tissue), monosodium glutamate (MSG), and thimerosol (mercury).”

I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to pay to have myself and my loved ones injected with toxins and dead human tissue for a 1.5% chance of avoiding the flu (which we only have a 20% chance of getting in the first place).

“The winter flu shot myth is based entirely on junk science designed to serve the interests of pharmaceutical companies who sell the vaccines,” explains Natural News founder Mike Adams. “An honest look at the science reveals the unavoidable truth about flu shots  — they’re virtually worthless at preventing the flu. People would  be much better off to skip the shots and engage in healthier exercise and  dietary habits.”

A Natural Approach

Flu shots are said to boost the body’s own immune system in order to make it more resistant to disease. But all vaccines contain chemical toxins which are acidifying to the body and actually weaken our immune system.

According to Dr. Robert O. Young, sickness and disease cannot thrive unless it has an acidic environment to live and grow in, and by alkalizing our bodies, we create a more disease-resistant body.

Alkalizing the body can be achieved by switching to ionized alkaline water, eating more alkaline fruits and vegetables, reducing stress, getting adequate sleep and soft exercise, and reducing exposure to acidic substances like drugs, alcohol, chemical cleaners and commercial beauty products.

Taking vitamin D supplements and drinking herbal tea have also been found to bolster the immune system naturally. By nourishing your body from the inside out you will be able to protect yourself from flus and colds this winter, rendering flu shots completely unnecessary.

Check Yourself Before You Wreck Yourself

Are you feeling sluggish? Not sleeping well? Have a case of the sniffles that’s been going on a little too long?

It’s time to check yourself before you wreck yourself.

Often we get so caught up with our day-to-day stresses and responsibilities that we tend to ignore the little signs our bodies are sending us that things are not quite right. We pop a pain pill to relieve that headache or back ache, chew an antacid when heartburn flares up, and chug coffee or energy drinks when the afternoon slump settles in.

But the problem with all of those short-term solutions is that they are all acidifying to the body, which only exacerbates the problem. In fact, when left untended too long, those little aches and pains can result into major medical bills and prescriptions.

Better to do a periodic self-evaluation to see if your diet or lifestyle is lacking and how you can improve it.

Perhaps you got totally on board with the alkaline diet and lifestyle weeks, months or years ago and have since backslidden, or maybe you have never even heard of the alkaline diet and lifestyle before today. Either way, we invite you to take our Overacidity Test to see just how healthy or at risk you may be.

According to Dr. Robert O. Young, all disease is a result of an overacidic body, and disease cannot thrive in an alkaline environment. Also, many conditions are a result of dehydration and inflammation.

Here are our solutions on how to reduce acidity and contribute to an alkaline internal environment:

The time to get healthy and prevent disease is now, not after your doctor has delivered a diagnosis. Don’t let those little seemingly insignificant irritants go unnoticed–stop and listen to what your body is trying to tell you.

Just How Much is Your Health Worth?

The United States spends an estimated $2 trillion annually on healthcare expenses (more than any other industrialized country and 2.5 times more than average), yet only ranks #37 on the World Health Organization’s best care list. Drug costs alone represent $98 billion, and health care costs are rising at five times the rate of inflation.

The author of this article sold health insurance in California for the past three years and heard many a (completely justified) gripe about the cost of care vs. the shrinking number of benefits offered by the insurance carriers.

Most Americans get their health coverage through their employers, however many employers have been recently forced to reduce coverage and shift the cost of higher copays and deductibles to their employees. Since 1999, family premiums for employer-sponsored health coverage have increased by 131%. Thus, currently more than 45 million Americans are uninsured.

While we believe everyone should seek a minimum of catastrophic health insurance coverage since no one is exempt from accidents, wouldn’t it be wonderful to have health insurance from your tap? As more and more American doctors begin to recognize the benefits of alkaline ionized water, it is our hope that one day our health care system will cover or share the cost of a water ionizer for every household.

Unfortunately, the FDA currently prevents anything other than a drug from being advertised as able to “treat, cure or prevent a disease” so most doctors don’t yet prescribe one despite the growing list of positive scientific studies.

Water ionizers have been classified as a medical device in Japan for decades and have a proven safety record. Not only do Chanson water ionizers produce alkaline water for drinking, but the acidic water byproduct has over 500 uses including eco-friendly household cleaning and skin care. One out of every five homes in Japan contains a water ionizer, and many Asian hospitals use ionized acidic water for disinfecting and patient skin conditions like pressure ulcers (bedsores).

Occasionally we at Chanson headquarters are hit with the objection: “But a water ionizer is so expensive!”

We understand that at first glance, a $1,295-$2,195 price tag seems steep. But like any major appliance or sophisticated electronic device, the cost should be averaged over a long period of time. We’re guessing that you didn’t balk quite so much at the cost of your computer, stainless steel fridge or washer and dryer. Chances are you researched them when needed, purchased the model that best suited your needs, and won’t give it a second thought until the appliance breaks down and needs to be replaced.

The average family of three spends $400 a year or more on bottled water. They also spend another $400 a year on cleaning supplies and skin care products that can be replaced with Chanson acidic water which has been 3rd party lab tested to disinfect on contact.

So on average, the purchase of a Chanson water ionizer will save at least $800/year, not including the potential health savings as ionized water tends to address may types of health issues stemming from inflammation due to the apparent antioxidant power. Thus the cost of our Chanson Violet water ionizer and C3 Prefiltration System will pay for itself in less than two years and is less than half of the price of one competing model. And the cost of our top-performing Chanson M.A.X. ionizer paired with our deluxe Nano-Filtration System will pay for itself in about three and a half years!

We recently had a customer use pre-tax dollars from his Flexible Spending Account to purchase his Chanson water ionizer, so we recommend that you look into that option if your employer offers a FSA. We also offer financing with zero down and payments as low as $25/month on approved credit.

So rather than asking, “how can I afford a water ionizer?” a better question may be “how can I NOT afford a water ionizer?” Remember, alkaline ionized water from a Chanson ionizer is like Health Insurance from your Tap!™. Visit www.chansonwater.com for more information.
