The Miraculous Properties of Ionized Water, by Bob McCauley. Water is our best defense against disease of every kind. Sixty percent or more of all chronic disease would be significantly reduced if people would simply keep themselves properly hydrated.
To ionize means to gain or lose an electron. Essentially, the ionization process robs an electron from one molecule and donates, or transfers, it to another molecule. Both Alkaline and Acid Ionized Water have extraordinary properties and benefits; however, their respective uses could not be more different. We consume Alkaline Ionized Water and use the Acid Ionized Water on the outside of our bodies for acne, cuts, scrapes and rashes of all kinds. It kills bacteria on contact and encourages plant growth.
The centerpiece of Alkaline Ionized Water are its antioxidant properties. It is miraculous that normal tap water can be instantly transformed into a strong antioxidant. Alkaline Ionized Water has two antioxidant qualities; its negative charge and the presence of hydroxyl ions which are free radical scavengers.
The body is starved for electrons and Alkaline Ionized Water contains an abundance of them, which nullify free radicals in the body.
Alkaline Ionized Water is an extremely effective antioxidant because it is a liquid that has a small grouping of water molecule clusters and thus is more easily absorbed into the body where it can be of immediate use. Drinking Alkaline Ionized Water gives you energy through better hydration and alkalization of the body and by providing the body with oxygen.
Because of the predominance of hydroxyl ions in Alkaline Ionized Water, the water becomes alkaline, meaning it has a high pH. The pH level can be adjusted with a water ionizer between 7.5 and 9.9, which is the highest pH that it should be consumed.
All disease thrives in an acid environment in the body and will not flourish or thrive in an alkaline environment. If we acidify our bodies through poor diet we become vulnerable to any disease that invades the body. The more acid our body is, the more susceptible we become to disease.
Ionized Water is sometimes referred to as micro-cluster water because of its small molecular grouping. Water molecules typically group in clusters of 10 or more. Ionized Water molecule clusters group together into six water molecules, thus they have been reduced in size, which is the most natural state for water to exist in. Ionization changes conventional water from an irregular, bulky shape to a hexagonal shape that saturates body tissue much more efficiently. These smaller six-sided clusters are extremely penetrating and hydrating. As it hydrates body tissue, Ionized Water pushes out all the things that don't belong in the body, which are commonly referred to as toxins. Therefore, Ionized Water is extremely detoxifying, which is why people who are quite toxic must start drinking Ionized Water slowly so they do not detoxify too quickly.
Ionized Water is best consumed straight out of the tap because it is most effective when it is fresh. Ionized Water should become a part of everyone's lifestyle if they wish to be healthy. It is the best substance we can possibly consume because there is nothing healthier for the body than water and there is no better water than Ionized Water.
Partnering with Nature is a simple book with a powerful message: our connections to the natural environment— and ultimately, to ourselves—are crucial in today’s fragmented world. As each successive generation moves farther away from nature, the growing disconnect is expressed through physical as well as mental stress, from depression and fatigue in adults to attention disorders and obesity in children. The way we relate to nature helps define our place within it, and by awakening this natural, yet dormant connection to the environment around us, we can move beyond solitary stewardship and into partnership.
In Partnering with Nature, Catriona MacGregor weaves together scientific and historical wisdom, spiritual insights, and inspiring stories that illuminate the energies that link humans, animals, and the natural world. Through observation and conscious practice, we can open up to the power of nature to transform our lives, uplift our spirits, and even to direct our bodies to a healthier potential. For everyone who has a sense of something missing, who wishes to make a difference in their world, who yearns to reclaim their sense of wonder and awe, or who struggles with their health or emotional balance—nature speaks to all who will listen.
