Millions of people suffer with arthritis, and many billions of dollars are spent each year battling the disease. Given the widespread occurrence of arthritis, and the cost of dealing with it in terms of suffering and money, it boggles my mind that there are so few people who are aware that alkaline ionized water will get rid of arthritis quickly, and naturally without any side effects.
I had been suffering with osteoarthritis for years, and it was getting worse over time. I have been very active with sports all my life with sports, and I have owned a construction company for the last 19 years. By the spring of 2008, and age 51, I was no longer able to participate in sports and was unable to work with my crew of men. The bottom line was that I was becoming another one of the grumpy old men that we all know.
My physician indicated that I would have to deal with the pain for the rest of my life, but that “we” could manage the pain. In 2007, he began prescribing one 200 mg Arthrotec pill twice each day that I was taking in the morning and evening. Arthrotec is a “coated” Voltarin NSAID that is supposedly easier on the stomach. In addition, he also prescribed one 40 mg Pantoloc pill each day to assist with protecting my stomach. NSAIDS are brutal on the gastrointestinal tract, and to his credit, my physician was attempting to be cautious. What the physician didn’t tell me is that Pantoloc is a Calcium blocker and that it reduces the amount of acid in the stomach, which means that you can’t fully digest your food.
The prescriptions were able to dull the pain on a daily basis, but if I ever missed a pill, the pain would return immediately. Over time, the pain became worse, so I visited a chiropractor three times each week to help manage what was becoming a more and more debilitating problem. The chiropractor manipulations helped a bit, but the there was marginal success. I was spending 3 x $45 each week for the chiropractor plus paying for the pills. In total, I was spending about $700 per month for pain management and was not getting worse, instead of getting better.
Last spring, my wife Mary told me that she had found the answer to my arthritis. Sure honey! Sorry about being skeptical, but she has made a lot of those announcements over the years and we have a drawer full of failed attempts. It turns out she had attended a Multi-Level Marketing meeting where she watched a demonstration about alkaline ionized water. She was very excited about the water and told me that “we” were going to do this together. Oh yeah! I had zero interest in this latest attempt at the fountain of youth and good health, but how bad could drinking water be. Compared to all of the weird things she has made me eat over the years, water seemed like a breeze. Mary made me put away my pills and started to fill me up with water. Drinking water is not a lot of fun normally as it seems I get bloated after about one glass. The ionized water seemed to go down a lot easier than regular water and it seemed like I could drink a lot more, but maybe I was just caught up in ”taking one for the team”. The next day I had a big headache which was unusual. The headache continued the second day and I asked my wife if she was trying to kill me with the water. She said she has a headache as well, and suggested we call the water salesman. When we reached him by telephone, he was very happy as he said we were cleansing and detoxing. I could just see the guy dancing a little jig thinking about the commission he was going to make. He’s all happy and I have a head banger headache! I wanted to grab the guy by the throat! The good news is that he said to keep drinking the water and the headaches would go away… and they did.
I would have bet 1,000 to 1 odds that the alkaline ionized water wouldn’t work for me. I knew my wife meant well, but how could something as simple as ionized water be effective when my doctor and his medications, and chiropractor couldn’t help? Fortunately, I would have been wrong as the results were amazing. Not only did my arthritis go away and stay away, but my acid reflux problem that had been bothering me for about 15 years also disappeared.
Once we were through the trial process, my wife said we should purchase the unit that the water ionizer sales guy was selling. I agreed until I asked how much they cost. When I found out the cost was $4,000, I nearly flipped and I started researching on the internet. It turns out that all alkaline water ionizers work through simple electrolysis. There are lots of companies out there selling this type of product and it appears that you can purchase a very effective top of the line unit from one of several leading companies for about $2,000 if you don’t get involved with a Multi-Level Marketing program.
It is now 8 months later and I have not taken a pill since I started drinking the water. I returned to playing and coaching basketball, and now I can golf and play tennis again. The machine paid for itself in three months simply by eliminating prescriptions and chiropractor bills. The savings are good, but the real win is that it works! And the bonus is that my wife thinks I’m doing this all for her… Hehehe!
