Keep Drinking When It’s Works

I could have given this article the title “do as I say, not as I do”. It could also be called “how could I be so stupid?”.

Prior to drinking alkaline water, I was taking a medication for arthritis, another for acid reflux, and had received a prescription to start taking a third drug to control the level of cholesterol in my blood. Withing a week of drinking the water, my acid reflux disappeared. My arthritis disappeared within a month. I never did start taking the drug for cholestol and it has not been a problem.

All is good….right? Yup. For four years I faithfully drank the water and the physical problems that I had previously suffered from were no longer an issue.

Along comes the summer of 2012. Maybe I was trying to create my own personal armegeddon, or maybe I secretly wanted to see if I was “cured” of my previous health issues, or maybe life just got in the way.

With 4 of the 5 kids now living on their own, we decided that it was “our time”. We down-sized and moved closer to our cottage. A series of events beyond our control took place in the last four months that left us without a water ionizer. I could have retrieved a unit from storage, but life was busy and I didn’t really experience any significant degree of acid reflux or arthritis…until about three weeks ago.

At some point in October, my acid reflux started to act up and has been getting progressively worse. In the past two weeks or so, I have been experiencing more and more aches and pains. It suddenly occured to me that it was time to get back on the water. Unfortunately, our kitchen was being renovated until this past week. When the granite counter was finally installed, I added an under the counter natural water ionizer.

The change in my health within a couple of days of starting to drink the water again has been remarkable. The acid reflux has almost disappeared (the exception being when I had pizza with the kids late Friday night). The aches and pains from arthritis have been getting better every day.


Drinking ionized/energized water changed my life more than four years ago. It might change yours.

Don’t stop drinking ionized water after it stops working unless you have a well entrenched alkaline diet and you exercise and make a conscious effort to reduce stress in your life. Even if you do all of those things, I would still recommend drinking the water based upon many discussions I have had with vegetarians who found the water made a positive difference in their lives. Regardless of whether you drink the water or not, I still recommend that everyone eat the right foods, exercise, and reduce stress…..but I know from personal experience that it is easier said than done.

  1. You said it well….and all in a nutshell all wrapped up. Glad you are feeling better and know you are glad to get your kitchen back. We just went through a kitchen renovation. May I ask which ionizer you added underneath your sink? I got the hybrid you suggested so our son could take one like it to college, but now we are thinking about one for under the sink so when I travel I don’t leave my husband without one…haha

    • Hi Cely:

      How is the Hybrid working out for you? My two sons have been using their Hybrids at college for the past couple of years. They love them. They say that their Hybrids come in really handy at bedtime after a night of partying, which seems to be a pretty regular occurence. It’s always good to know how their college money is being spent :(

      I installed an under the counter Vitev Flo ($399) in our kitchen. The flow rate is about 1 gallon per minute which is really fast. I have never tested a water ionizer that produces so many hydrogen bubbles. At first I was concerned because I don’t like the hydrogen being wasted as the bubbles rise to the surface and dissipate into the air. However, it turned out I didn’t need to be concerned as the test results are awesome. I have come to the conclusion that electric water ionizers are obsolete now that the low cost non-electric machines perform so well. I’m sure some people will think they are getting the “best” when they pay $4,000 for a machine, but they are deluding themselves.

      I was predisposed to use the Ultra($995) because I believe it provides the best man made drinking water in the world. However, we are incredibly fortunate to live in a place where they have a brand new state of the art water processing facility. They don’t use use fluoride or chloramines and they use minimal chlorine because they have a sophisticated ozonation system. Since our source water is so good, I was able to install the lower cost Flo unit.

  2. If you have serious health problems, this is totally worth the investment. I’ve seen many friends overcome their problems with their body because of this water. Disease will not thrive in an alkaline environment.
