Natural Healing with Amazing Miracle Waters Found Around the Globe

You’ve heard of the fountain of youth, and the miraculous healing and transformative qualities it can bring.

But did you know that many parts of the world, “healing waters” are still rumored to exist, and regularly attract numerous tourists and health-seekers?

Whether these springs have any scientific merit or are merely faith-based, legend or myths which elicit a placebo response, they have managed to rack up a significant amount of extraordinary health claims.

Here are a few of the more well known miracle water sites:

1. Lourdes, France

In 1858, a poor 14-year-old French girl repeatedly saw a ghostly woman who claimed to be the Virgin Mary that revealed the location of a spring and told her she wanted a chapel built on the site and for people to come in procession.

Now, an average of five million visitors flock to the town to drink or bathe in the spring water each year, and have reported healing of ailments like tumors, tuberculosis, ophthalmitis, impetigo, bronchitis and paralysis.

2. Tlacote, Mexico

Since May 1991, over 8 million people have visited the ranch of Mr. Jesus Chahin, who gives the miracle water on his property away for free. The water is said to have cured everything from cancer to obesity and high cholesterol, allegedly including former NBA star Magic Johnson’s AIDS.

3. Nordenau, Germany

A spring of very pure water was discovered in a cave in a disused slate mine at Nordenau. An old woman reported that after covering her blind eye with the water, she can now see; an ex-miner said his back was healed and he has thrown away his crutch, and another woman said, “I always had problems with high blood pressure and was afraid of collapsing. I went to the grotto with my blood pressure at 160/100. I came out with 130/100. Now the blood pressure is constant, a fact which my doctor cannot explain.”

4. Nadana, India

In Nadana village, water began gushing out of a deserted tube well in September 1992. Locals who bathed in the water reported that the “medicinal” and “magical” qualities of the well cured their skin diseases. Word quickly spread, and now a constant stream of people visit the village daily to gain the benefits of the water. A five-year-old polio victim was reportedly cured to a large extent after bathing there, and most people who go into the water report physical improvements.

How would you like to have your own fountain of youth, right in your own kitchen?

With a Chanson Water ionizer, you can (no travel or waiting in line necessary!)

Water ionizers recreate what happens in nature when fresh water runs over rocks. They take your ordinary tap water and transform it into fresh, filtered ionized alkaline water through the process of electrolysis with the touch of a button.

While the FDA mandates that only drugs can make direct health claims of treating or preventing disease, users report* everything from lower cholesterol to weight loss to improved vision to better sleep after drinking ionized alkaline water from a water ionizer. In addition, the ionized acidic water that the machine also produces has been attributed with improving various skin conditions when applied to the skin. Visit www.chansonwater.com to learn more.

7 Tips to Help You Stay Hydrated

Proper hydration is the key to a healthy body.

Not only does adequate water intake aid in disease prevention, improve appearance, and increase energy levels, but it also benefits things like our mental and physical performance and memory.

Yet studies report that 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated!

Your body loses approximately half its weight in ounces daily through normal everyday functions like perspiration, exhalation, urination and deification. Therefore we recommend that you drink a minimum of half of your body weight in ounces daily in order to replace the lost water and to prevent dehydration.

We realize that this can sound like a daunting amount, and you may need to work your way up, but we guarantee your body will thank you for it!

Here are 7 simple tips for increasing your daily water intake and staying hydrated this summer:

1. Switch to ionized alkaline water

Users report that ionized alkaline water (made with a water ionizer) does not leave a bloated or waterlogged feeling. We attribute this to the microclustering claim made by Japanese scientists that ionized alkaline water is able to deeper hydrate your cells. The electric charge in the water (via electrolysis) has also been said to create a healthy craving for the water.

2. Start your day off right

Try drinking 1-2 glasses of water the first thing in the morning when you wake up in order to replace water lost during slumber and get a head start on your daily water intake.

3. Take water wherever you go

Carry a refillable glass or BPA-free water bottle with you for easy access on-the-go, and make sure to always have a glass at your desk. Just having the water on hand will remind you to drink it and help you meet your quota.

4. Choose water instead of other beverages

Instead of reaching for a soda or sports drink, fill a glass of water instead. Substituting water for one 20-ounce soda will save you about 240 calories!

5. Sip water in between meals

Don’t reserve beverages for mealtime only – make sure to sip throughout the day. Every drop adds up!

6. Flavor it!

Adding flavor to water has been found to help people drink more than when left unflavored. Check out our suggestions for Ways to Jazz up the Flavor of Water.

7. Eat your water

Add more water-dense foods like broccoli, zucchini, watermelon, lettuce, tomatoes to your diet for added hydration.

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.

Why Non-Electric “Ionizers” Don’t Compare to Chanson Water Ionizer Machines

Electric ionizer machines are the original water ionizer products released on the world market that produce both alkaline and acid water through electrolysis, but now more and more non-electric “ionizers” seem to be popping up at a fraction of the price claiming to be just as good if not better than the Real McCoy.

Where did these non-electric “ionizers” come from? Well, it’s really simple. They came from people that want to sell a product and they saw the success of the electric ionizer water machines so they figured “Well, a water ionizer costs between $1,000–$2,000 and if I can make a water ionizer that sells for $300–$400, I’m going to become a multi-millionaire!”

The truth is that when water flows over rocks in nature, it naturally ionizes the water, and  our electric water ionizer machines are designed to re-create this process found in nature since not everyone has a waterfall in their backyard. When nature ionizes that water, it does so through ferocious movement and friction over metals and rocks in the river bed which creates an electrical charge amongst the minerals in the water. So then how can something that has no electricity duplicate the way nature makes ionized water through movement and ferocious friction?

The simplest analogy to understand the differences in the two products would be that an electric ionizer is like a water fall, and the non-electric “ionizer” is like a lake. Now where would you prefer to collect your drinking water from? The lake is a stagnant, dead body of water. It contains minerals; it contains things that might be of benefit to the body, but it’s not the living water that we know provides optimal hydration.

So let’s take a look at what benefits and alterations each product actually make to the water.

Chanson Electric Water Ionizer vs. Competitor Non-Electric Water “Ionizer”

Chanson Electric Water Ionizers Provide:

Alkaline water for drinking

Acidic water for disinfecting and skin care

-Purified water for use with medication

-Adjustable levels of pH to suit the personal needs of you, your family and even pets

-Certified microclustered water molecules which are up to six times more hydrating

-A negative charge (low ORP) which means it has anti-oxidant properties

-Safe delivery of extra oxygen to your cells

-Filtration of harmful chemicals, toxins, and bacteria

-Tracking of when the filter needs to be changed

-NSF certificiation and he history to back them up – we have the testing, the animal studies, the human studies and are the ones that are used in hospitals all over the world

Competitor Non-Electric Ionizers Provide:

-A two point increase in pH level. This means that if your base water is only a 5 pH, you would only be bringing it up to a neutral 7 pH instead of alkaline water (which would still be better than an acidic 5 pH but important to note). Also, if you are using a base water with a pH of 8 or higher–there are actually quite a few areas around the United States where the tap water is a 9 pH–you could potentially be raising the alkalinity above the recommended 9.5 pH level.

-A negative charge (low ORP) that is only about 1/3 of what an electric ionizer can produce

-Mineral-stripping filtration which in most cases is provided by De-Ionization (DI) Resin which is a toxin that’s basically Super Glue and tar mixed together. When the resin has reached capacity (no way of knowing when without testing) it will actually allow the contaminants into your water and if it’s a low-quality resin the resin itself will also leech into your water. We asked eight water experts who have been in the water filtration industry 10-30 years what their opinion on DI Resin for drinking water products was. Every one of them answered by saying, “DI resin is the nastiest stuff out there and I would never drink a glass of water that’s passed through it.”

-Re-mineralization of the water with “secret ingredients” that are impossible to test or verify

-Uncertified claims of microclustering the water

-No testing to back them up or poof that they are safe for long-term human use

Clearly, non-electric water “ionizers” are inferior to our electric Chanson water ionizers and should not be considered comparable. While they do provide some benefits, they should not be considered “ionizers.”

The only non-electric product we offer is our AlkaTraveler Stick (ATS) which is best described as a portable alkalizer, not an “ionizer.” It is the ONLY product in its category to pass the NSF safety tests in the USA and is safe for long-term use. The ATS contains only natural ingredients (calcium, vitamin C, tourmaline and magnesium) and is not a filter so it should not be used with unfiltered tap water. It is priced at $89, which is a far cry from the $300-$400 that competitors charge for their non-electric “ionizers.” Its design is more compact and convenient than competitor models and comes in a carrying case that can easily fit in your pocket.
