For many the New Year is a time of rebirth, a time of letting go of the old and of embracing the future with renewed energy, a time of clarity and focus. Our health is one of the first things we take into consideration every January. We make determinations, set goals, and try to lose a few pounds, all in an effort to get a head start on the New Year.
Today, more than ever before, we have available the knowledge and understanding of how we can achieve optimum health and of the tools we need to get there. We know that the human cell is quite capable of repairing itself; however, this requires us to provide the living system with raw materials. We are required to seek not the minimum for survival, but the maximum for human health.
How does one start to build optimum health and vitality? What are the raw materials and where do we source them? From nutrition—nutrient-dense food that is chemical free and fresh clean water are the raw materials that build optimum health.
Water is the first-line tool in achieving optimum health. As simple as it sounds, water can increase vitality, slow the aging process, and prevent disease. Water is the source of all living things and it is directly connected to our health. Within living systems, everything happens in water. Our planet is 70 percent water and the human body on average is 70 percent water. It is vital to the living system of the human body that it be sufficiently hydrated. The structural, circulatory, digestive, intestinal, glandular, respiratory, and immune systems need fresh clean water to function properly. Without fresh clean water, the human body starts to show symptoms of dehydration and if left unchecked, disease.
Common Symptoms of Dehydration
- Digestive disorders
- High blood pressure
- Cholesterol issues
- Respiratory ailments
- Toxic buildup
- Skin disorders
- Joint pain
- Liver, kidney, bladder issues
- Premature aging
Vitality is the state of being strong and active, with exuberant physical strength and mental vigor. Taking charge of our lives means also taking charge of our health. When we have vitality, life is full of endless opportunities that bring us joy and satisfaction. Premature aging is a degenerative process that affects the entire body needlessly early. Although aging is inevitable, we can dramatically reduce the effects and slow the process by the lifestyle choices we make. There are many keys to optimum health and longer life, and water is just one of them. Fresh clean drinking water that is healthy and hydrating is available in the form of alkaline ionized water.
Alkaline water has a pH of 7.0, which is between 10 and 1,000 times more alkaline than tap water. Alkaline water neutralizes acidic wastes. Alkaline water has more oxygen. At a pH of 7.0, water has an equal concentration of hydrogen (H+) and (H-) ions. As pH increases, so does the percentage of OH- ions. What this means is that your drinking water has more oxygen, not in the form of O2 but in the form of OH-, which is stabilized because of its combination with an alkaline mineral.
Ionized water is the product of mild electrolysis, which takes place in the ionized water unit. Ionized water is treated tap water that has not only been filtered but that has also been restructured. When tap water has been restructured through electrolysis, the effect is to supply an abundant number of electrons, resulting in smaller water molecule clusters. These clusters are shaped hexagonally; microclustered hexagonal water efficiently hydrates your 75 trillion cells through faster absorption. Alkaline ionized water is clean and refreshing, and it tastes great.
The best antioxidant is the one that is most bio-available with the greatest electron-donating capacity. Alkaline ionized water offers you the easiest antioxidant ever in the form of pure drinking water.
We are offering a series of four workshops on “Building Optimum Health and Vitality through Alkaline Water.” The first workshop will be held at 6:30pm February 4, 2014, at the Epic Water Source store.
We have a 21-day free trial for all Lotus Guide readers, so come on in and get started on the water. We are open 9am- 5:30pm Monday-Friday and 10am-2pm Saturday.
