KILLING CANCER - NOT PEOPLE
"Step Three of the Cancer Diet: Restructured, Ionized Water Could
Save Your Life"
"Water treated by electrolysis to increase its reduction potential
is the best solution to the problem of providing a safe source of free electrons to block
oxidation of normal tissue by free oxygen radicals."
Dr. Hidemitsu Hayashi, M.D.
Director, Water Institute of Japan
I undertook a study of water, off and on, for about four months. I
am now slightly less confused than when I started. Wait, that is an overstatement. I know a lot
more than I used to and, more importantly, I am aware of the real importance of this
life-sustaining fluid — especially in its "ionized" form.
Water is an enigma to many — make that most — people. They know
they need it, but they don't seem to know why or in what form. I'd like to have a dime for
every time I've heard that "water is water." Well, I can assure you that while it may all look
the same, it is definitely — and conclusively — not all the same.
And here's what I mean.
Water out of the tap is not the same as bottled water. Water
flowing down a stream from a glacier is different from Mississippi River water. Everglades
swamp water differs greatly from that in the Great Salt Lake. You get the picture. We have
difficulty discerning, however, the quality, structure and properties of
water we drink and pay no mind to its purity, hydrating
effectiveness, mineral content or electrical characteristics (what's that?). Nor do we seem to
know why these elemental attributes are important.
Water has electrical energy that can be
measured in millivolts (no, you won't be electrocuted), and that capacity
for electrical charge
Book after book, study after study, and paper after paper have
been produced about water. The Internet is a virtual library on water. While you can
continuously study this never-ending volume of H2O paraphernalia, you will probably wind up
confused and come to the prevailing (and cop-out) conclusion that "water is water", but you
would be missing one of the simplest and most valuable ingredients to good
Most of us know that the body is about 70% water, we should drink
eight glasses a day, humans can go for weeks without food but only three to four days without
water, etc., etc. What we don't know — or fail to realize — is that most water is acidic, much
of it is "dead" (no minerals), tap water is full of poisons (chlorine and fluoride), it
struggles to hydrate our cells, and contains oxidants rather than
Let's break it down. We've already discussed the importance of the
acid/alkaline problem with cancer patients. Most humans are acid, which promotes disease.
Remember the pH scale. The letters pH stand for "potential of hydrogen" or "per hydrogen" which
just equates to the amount of hydrogen atoms (H+ acidic) and/or hydroxide ions (OH- alkaline)
within a substance. So a pH of 8 would mean many times more hydroxide atoms (alkaline) than a
pH of 6 (actually, 100 times more). This is important for two reasons. First of all, water with
a pH of 8 would have a tendency to alkalinize us while that of 6 would acidify our
Secondly, hydrogen is essential to fuel us and to heal
can be positive or negative and lost or gained over time. What is
imperative to understand here is that positively charged hydrogen atoms or ions (H+) make water
acidic, while a hydrogen atom that bonds with an oxygen atom produces a negatively charged
(OH-) molecule of water that is alkaline. The science goes way beyond what we care to pursue,
but this is what you need to know.
The positive or negative characteristics of water are called the
Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) because of their ability to promote or neutralize free
radicals in the body. Acid and alkaline are always at war within us and, because we constantly
overload our systems with acid food and drinks (the H+ positive hydrogen ions) — acid usually
wins and our bodies become acidic over time (read cancer). Conversely, if we concentrate on
eating foods and drinking water with negative hydroxyl ions (OH-), we increase the negative
charge or negative Oxidation Reduction Potential. These OH- ions then bind to the H+ (acidic)
ions to neutralize the free radicals that cause the "rusting" or "rotting" of the human
Increasing the alkalinity leads to decreasing the oxidation. The
effects of free radicals or oxidation of the cells can be better described as hepatitis,
cirrhosis and cancer in the liver; pancreatitis, diabetes and cancer in the pancreas; and
nephritis, nephrosis and cancer in the kidneys. While all are bad, do you see the common
denominator to all of these? Yes, it's cancer.
So, ionized water increases our alkalinity and uses its negative
oxidation reduction potential (ORP) to neutralize free radicals. There is one more important
aspect that can be attributed to negatively charged, reduced water — low microclustering of the
water molecules. This is a hot topic. There seems to be somewhat of a split school of thought
within the scientific community on this subject. Many researchers believe that water is dynamic
and can have no stable, low microcluster capability. An equal number
believe the opposite and offer proof through studies using nuclear
magnetic resonance testing that show that the electrolysis process reduces clustering of water
molecules from 10-20 (or more) per cluster for regular tap water down to 5-6 for ionized water.
This process reduces the surface tension of the water and allows for solubility and cell
And what did my Great Hekawi Grandmother say about the proof being
in the pudding? So I had to put it to the test. Water has a half-life of 5-10 minutes in the
stomach depending on how much you drink, how fast, and how cold it is. This means that the
water (needing no digestion) has a 50% chance of having left the stomach completely within that
period of time. Believe me, for good quality ionized water this is true and, like Elvis, it has
left the building (stomach) within that time frame. It works for me and with all users with
whom I have spoken. From experience you know that if you guzzle 12-16 ounces of any liquid you
can feel it "sloshing" around down there for quite some time. On the other hand — and because
of its low microclustering character — you can literally jump on a trampoline 5 minutes after
consuming an equal amount of ionized water and feel no discomfort. And that's because it has
already been transported out of the stomach and is working its way into the cells. And I've
heard that exact story from many who have tried it. There's the empirical or "life" (not
Because of its low microclustering capability, its strong
alkalinity and, most importantly, the low negative ORP and free radical scavenging capability,
I believe that ionized water is a mandatory, baseline "treatment" for those with
Many people ask about distilled and reverse osmosis water. I
simply tell them that they are acidic with all (or most of) the nutrients (minerals) removed.
Sure, it's pure. But at what cost? Water without minerals will scavenge them from your bones
everywhere else in your body as it moves through you. Water has an
inherent need for minerals and, if it doesn't have them, it will go find and take them. The
stream running down the mountain picks up minerals from the rocks, earth and sand that it
travels over. Don't let it happen to you. Bag the distilled and RO water, the tap water, and
bottled water, as well. Almost all water that is sold in a plastic container is acid and was
bottled, on average, three years prior to your purchase! Gee, I wonder where
Since your body is over 70% water, doesn't it make sense to put
the best water possible into it? I think so, especially if you have cancer. And you'll feel the
There are many different machines out there that produce ionized
water. I have researched them — and you should too. The technology is pretty much the same
across the board with this equipment, with slight differences, but the quality varies
Operation is generally quite simple and the electrolysis process
is straightforward. With most machines, after installing a provided splitter on the tap, with
the flip of a small lever, water is diverted through a hose and into the machine where it is
filtered. The chlorine and contaminants exit here. The water then enters the electrolysis
chamber where it passes over, around and between titanium plates that are platinum coated or
plated. These serve as the electrodes (electrical conductors). The minerals in the water are
"ionized" which, basically, restructures the liquid into its alkaline (OH-) and acid (H+)
components. The water then flows out of the machine via two different ports; one for the acid
water and one for the alkaline. Fluoride is an acid molecule so it passes out the acid port and
down the drain. Since the water molecule is fundamentally "split" at this point, the chambers
shunt the lower pH fluid through a smaller hose and the high pH liquid through the main, upper
hose. Settings on the equipment (most brands) will
allow the user to produce alkaline water to about 10.0 pH and acid
water to about 4 or 5 pH. A few go as high as 11.5 pH and as low as 2.5
But you wouldn't drink 2.5 pH or 11.5 pH water, would you? The
answer is normally "no" you wouldn't. It appears that Americans have no fear of consuming 2.5
pH soda pop, however. The equipment that produces these pH extremes does so for specific
reasons. Most people don't know that when water gets below about 2.6 pH it kills most bacteria
and pathogens known to man. This makes it ideal for open wounds, burns, and infections. In
addition, 11.5 pH water is an emulsifier and will remove oils and pesticides from fruits and
vegetables. I soak all my produce in 11.5 pH water for 5-10 minutes before storing or eating.
When I take them out of this very high alkaline liquid, the water is actually yellow —
reflecting the chemicals and pesticides that have been removed. It also will extend the "shelf
life" of your produce to at least twice its normal refrigerator existence. And, since its high
alkalinity draws out acids, many with arthritis and gout, muscle soreness or tissue injuries,
utilize the 11.5 pH water to soak in to "pull out" acids associated with inflammation, injury
and pain. Yes, I've seen it work.
Usually, drinkable water falls in the 7.0-9.5 pH range. Most who
set out on the ionized water journey start at 8.5 and work up to 9.5. This allows for a build
up to higher alkalinity in the body that can bring on a "healing process" known as a Herxheimer
reaction. It is actually a good thing and demonstrates that the alkaline water is challenging
the body's disease-causing acidosis. Depending on the severity of one's sickness or degree of
acidity, this "reaction" should be relatively short-lived. Symptoms can be lethargy, tiredness,
headaches, slight nausea, etc. If this reaction gets too severe, one should back off of the pH
(read reduce) but INCREASE the volume of water ingested. As a result, the body will flush the
toxins that have been "stirred up", while reducing
(slightly) the pH will slow the stimulation of these internal
We spoke of the Hunza people in a previous chapter regarding the
nitrilosides in their food, namely apricot kernels. The Hunza have the longest lifespan in the
world, routinely living to over 120 years old. Yes, they have a nutrient-rich diet that is
devoid of all the crap and processed food that we ingest. But they also drink water from
pristine glacial streams. The structure of ionized water is similar to that of "Hunza" water.
Dr. Henri Coanda and Dr. Patrick Flanagan (and others) discovered that this glacial water had a
very high natural mineral content, a high alkaline pH, and a load of active hydrogen with that
very important negative oxidation reduction potential (ORP). Can we make the
The technology that has become alkaline, ionized water was birthed
in Russia back in the 1950's. About 36 years ago the Japanese grabbed hold of the technology
and perfected it. During the past three and a half decades it has gone through many phases,
much research, and endless testing. Restructured ionized water, produced by electrolysis
machines, has become a proven and accepted methodology in that country and drinking this
substance is a way of life for the Japanese. It should also be so in America but,
unfortunately, it's not. As a matter of fact, one Company's line of ionizers is now officially
classified and certified as a medical device in Japan. And this is the company that I endorse
and, as always, I must tell you that I receive nothing for saying so.
I informed you earlier that I spent about four months
investigating both ionized water and the equipment that produces it. Within the past ten
minutes, you should have developed a sufficient, working knowledge about this water, its
efficacy, and importance for cancer patients. During the course of this water quest, I also
reviewed the multitude of companies that produce ionizing equipment and their individual
electrolysis technologies and "water reducing"
machines. What I discovered is that there is a very wide range of
quality and price among the many manufacturers. You can literally buy an ionizer for as little
as $600 or as much as $6,000. You could also purchase a plastic bottle with a mineral filter
that, in my opinion, will not get you anywhere you need to go — as we have previously
In the field of ionization and electrolysis, it became very
evident to me that you really get what you pay for. While there are many machines that will
give you excellent alkaline water and some that will provide a relatively high-negative ORP,
there are many others that won't do so and some for not very long. You must decide what works
for you, what you can afford, and which technology or equipment makes you the most comfortable.
I made my choice based upon quality (actual, not perceived), longevity, and the "studied proof"
of its ionized water and overwhelming support from literally thousands of users via their
life-changing testimonies. And, no, I didn't just read about these — I have actually talked to
the people, heard their stories, and viewed their results first hand. Their experiences were
truly life changing.
Do your own homework — get what you feel is best for you. In a
moment, I will tell you what I chose. Prior to that, though, let's listen to what some of the
experts say about alkaline, ionized water, and their reasons for why you should drink
Dr. Ray Kurzweil and Dr. Terry Grossman, authors of "Fantastic Voyage: Live Long Enough to Live Forever" state
the following: "Consuming the right type of water is vital to detoxifying the body's acidic
waste products and is one of the most powerful health treatments available. We recommend that
you drink 8-10 glasses per day of this alkaline water. It is one of the simplest and most
powerful things that you can do to combat a wide range of disease
The author of "The pH
Miracle", Dr. Robert Young, says that "to maintain or restore your body's natural pH
balance for optimal health, drink restructured, ionized water which is rich in antioxidants
and alkaline minerals. Ionized water helps reverse the effects of acid accumulation in the
body, the root cause of degenerative diseases and aging."
Dr. Gabriel Cousins, author of "Conscious Eating" says it simply: "Water ionization could be
one of the most important health breakthroughs in our era."
"Alkaline water produced by a water ionizer has become the most
important advancement in health care since Sir Alexander Fleming's discovery of penicillin."
This quote (and a very stunning one at that) was voiced by "Cancer Cure" author, Dr. William
Dr. Theodore Baroody, D.C., N.D., Ph.D. Nutrition, and author of
the classic book "Alkalize or Die", provides his
opinion on this elixir of life:
"After years of very positive continuous clinical experiments that
I am conducting with hundreds of clients using electronically restructured, alkaline water, it
is my opinion that this technology will change the way in which all health providers and the
public will approach their health in the coming years. My suggestion is to drink restructured,
alkaline water whenever possible."
The following statements all came from the
"Ionized water has millions of hydroxyl ions per glass. No other
water has this incredible benefit. Hydroxyl ions 'neutralize' cancer causing and destructive
free radicals in the body."
"Ionized water is thousands of times more healthful to your body
than any other water. And the proof 'is in the pudding' so to speak. Everyone who drinks
ionized water, either in its natural state as glacier milk, or from a properly built and
functioning water ionizer, lives in a state of health light years beyond those that
"One glass of Ionized water can hydrate your body better than
gallons of any other water."
"Ionized water alkalizes your body better than the only other
method (eating a 100% organic and raw vegetarian diet)."
"Cancer, obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, arthritis,
kidney/renal disease, cardio-vascular disease, ad infinitum, are all slowed, stopped, and in
most circumstances reversed when drinking ionized water."
"Ionized water can flush toxins and poisons out of your body
better and with considerably less negative effects than any other detox
This last statement has been verified in spades by Dr. Hiromi
Shinya, the co-developer of the colonoscopy and a life-saving medical tool used for the
endoscopic treatment that removes polyps in the colon. His technique for removing these
growths, called the "Shinya Method", is widely utilized in colonoscopies today. Dr. Shinya has
performed more than 370,000 of these medical tests and over 140,000 polypectomies and is a
staunch supporter of ionized water, mainly because he has seen its results in the descending
colon. The video evidence, both before and after the usage of ionized water, is stunning. You
can view these videos yourself by entering the good Doctor's name into your search engine —
hopefully, after you're done eating. Dr. Shinya puts all of his patients on a high alkaline
diet with a minimum of one gallon
of ionized water (depending on body size) per day. All of the
cancer patients that he and his team have treated have a ZERO recurrence of ANY kind of cancer.
In his book he states flatly that if people would follow his recommended lifestyle — there
would be no cancer at all.
If I were looking for an electrolysis unit today, I would choose
the SD501 made by the Enagic Company. I have explained most of my reasoning for this decision
in earlier comments. The versatile, multi-function SD501 is simply the "Rolls Royce" of water
ionizers. The water that they produce is referred to as "Kangen Water"TM, which is a registered
trademark of the Enagic Corporation. No other company's ionized water can legally be called by
this name. They were the first, having been in business for over 30 years, and have been the
unquestioned leader of this industry since their first unit was built. Most of their equipment
will last for yours or my lifetime and, if we outlive it, they will recondition it for a small
The fact is that I only want to buy one ionizer, I want it to be
durable, and to always produce the high alkaline, negative ORP, low microclustered water that
my body really "thirsts" for. For all of my requirements, including the 2.5 acid water feature
and the 11.5 super alkaline water capability, only Enagic fit the bill. Some may disagree with
me — that's O.K. Establish your own criteria and find the one that works best for you. Although
the Enagic unit is a little pricey, it is more than worth it for what you get — and it might
just save your life. Remembering that a single day in the hospital for a cancer patient now far
exceeds $6,000, this could be a real bargain. I don't believe mine will ever expire and I plan
on living a lot more years. It will still probably outlive me — that's how good I believe it
Whatever your choice, fmd a way to get good quality, highly
alkaline, negative ORP, low microclustered, ionized water into your body as rapidly as you
possibly can — especially if you have cancer. Do not drink a lot when you take medications as
it makes them more potent. Take only a small amount with your meds and allow 30 minutes or so
on either side of this for consuming larger quantities. Also, stop drinking about 20 minutes
before you eat and wait for at least an hour after meals to resume.
If you choose to go another route for ionized water, please
research thoroughly and choose wisely. You'll be glad you did.
I have no financial interest in the Enagic Company nor do I
receive any remuneration for my recommendations.
