I hear a lot of personal stories about how alkaline ionized water helps people in many ways. I also hear a lot of stories about how alkaline ionized water changes lives (I have one myself). But every once in awhile I receive a call that provides incredible inspiration, and it is my privilege to share this one with you.
I have a great deal of respect for the medical profession, because my father was a wonderful physician. However, I have come to learn over the years that western medicine doesn’t begin to have all the answers. In fact, I believe our medical system is failing badly in terms of providing health care through preventative medicine. Instead of launching into negative territory, I want to relate this wonderful story of a family physician that has made a difference.
A couple of months ago, a physician from Quebec ordered a water ionizer for his personal use after reading about the benefits of the water. Shortly thereafter, one of his patients called and purchased the same unit.
Fast forward to this past weekend and the physician contacted me in order to obtain another water ionizer unit for a relative that has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer. I began to explain to the doctor that the unit might offer some real hope based upon the personal stories that I have been involved with. The doctor politely indicated that he understood which I assume was to spare him the pain of listening to me. He then asked me if I remembered the patient that obtained the second unit a couple of months ago. I said I did, and then the doctor told me the following story.
It turns out that his patient had stage four liver cancer and the oncologist working on the case had informed the patient that there was nothing more that could be done. In fact, palliative care service had been applied for to assist the patient. If you have any experience with palliative care, you know exactly where this was heading.
The patient reported the news to his family physician, and inquired if the doctor was aware of anything that might give him hope. The doctor explained to the patient that he had been researching water ionizers on the internet and that the patient might want to do some research on his own. The doctor explained that he had learned from his research that there was reason to believe that the machines might be able to reduce acid levels in the body. He also explained that cancer thrives in an acidic environment, so anything that could help reduce acid levels might help. For professional reasons, the doctor left it at that, but he did tell his patient that he had ordered one of the machines for his own home. The cancer patient contacted me shortly afterward to order a water ionizer without ever mentioning his situation.
It turns out that over the past two months, the patient started feeling better and better. In fact, the patient had returned to working on his hobbies and had just returned from a vacation.
As the cancer had progressed, tests had shown that the patient’s liver enzyme count has increased as time went on. Since the patient started drinking the ionized water, the enzyme count has been dropping. The doctor informed me that both he and the patient are filled with hope, and that they were anxiously awaiting the results of a new MRI test that is scheduled in a couple of weeks.
The doctor also passed on to me that all the members of his family have now obtained water ionizers. That is not an endorsement of course, but it certainly sends a clear unspoken message.
I wish that I could use the physician’s name, as he is a hero in my eyes. Unfortunately, any mention of his personal information could pose a threat to the physician’s career. The College of Physicians would undoubtedly investigate this type of “unprofessional conduct”, despite the fact that the physician’s only involvement was to direct the patient to do his own research.
I have the urge to blast away at the medical profession for their archaic methods of dealing with the new awareness towards health care, but I would rather just end this on a happy note. Bravo doctor!
