Reverse the conditions that inhibit the body’s own mechanisms for maintaining good health.
The Ionizer Plus® is a unique combination of an advanced water ionization system AND a state-of-the-art water filtration system. The ionized water restores proper acid / alkaline balance to your system, detoxifies and hydrates the body, improves digestion and elimination, and fights aging. Its superior water filter removes contaminants, chlorine, chemicals, and bacteria including e. coli, giardia, cryptosporidium, SARS, and anthrax and other biological weapons bacteria. Ultraviolet rays remove viruses. The Ionizer Plus® is the most advanced combination water ionizer and water filter available anywhere in the world.
The Ionizer Plus is distributed all over the world by High Tech Health, Inc. The unit is manufactured by Akai Electric Co, in Japan, where much of the population drinks ionized water. In the United States, more than 1,000 health practitioners – mostly MDs – recommend ionized water to their patients for conditions ranging from digestive problems to cancer. There are now more than 28,000 Ionizer Plus users in the United States alone.
The ionizer Plus connects via a diverter valve to your kitchen faucet. With the valve in one position it routes the water through the machine. With the valve in the other position, you may use your sink as you normally would. The water routed through the ionizer first encounters the carbon portion of the filter where chlorine and chemicals are absorbed. Next it goes through a hollow-fiber membrane. This space-age filter filters out everything larger than .1 micron (one tenth of a micron), including all bacteria. This feature – exclusive to the Ionizer Plus – will eliminate such bacteria as e.Coli, giardia, and crypto sporidium.
Then the water is treated with low dose ultra violet, approximately 15,000 microwatts per square centimeter, to eliminate viruses. The bacteria has already been filtered out. Next, the water is treated with direct current creating electrolysis, or the splitting of oxygen and hydrogen. Although microfiltration and ultraviolet will yield safe, clean water, the electrolysis treatment is even more important. After converting household current to direct current, the water enters an electrolysis chamber where there is a series of electrodes separated by a membrane. This membrane allows calcium, potassium, and magnesium, which are cations, to be attracted to the cathode. The minerals at this point become ionized and, therefore, much more bio-available; otherwise, the inorganic minerals found in water are too large to absorb.
Next, the direct current breaks the covalent bond of the water. Water molecules cluster together at 12-14 molecules per cluster. This is sometimes known as surface tension. The ionizer Plus breaks the bond electronically resulting in water that is “wetter,” more permeable, and more soluble. It hydrates the body about six times faster and deeper and acts as a transport mechanism for the minerals. The alkaline water also contains more available stable oxygen because hydrogen is given off at the cathode. Last, the charge of the water is changed. Typically tap water has a small electrical charge of about +400 millivolts. It is oxidative;which means rusts metals by oxidation or taking an electron away. The charge of the alkaline water is usually between -100 and -350 millivolts. In chemistry this is referred to as “reduced” meaning that it has an extra electron and donates it to free radicals in the body. This water has been written up in peer-reviewed journals as a superior antioxidant or free radical scavenger. If that isn’t enough for one small machine, it also produces a water with an acidic pH at the same time. The machine produces about 1.5 gallons of water per minute, a gallon of alkaline and a half gallon of acidic water. The Ionizer Plus has a design life of about twelve years (similar to many appliances) The price, including filter changes, works out to be about 14 cents per gallon.
If you have two or more of these symptoms, you may be suffering from acidic overload. Drinking ionized water can help to restore balance to your body eliminating these chronic side-effects.
This acidic state leads to a condition of malabsorption. Though a person’s diet may include the needed nutrition, the body cannot properly absorb water and minerals. This results in a mild but perpetual dehydration and miner deficiency.
These problems inevitably lead to other, more serious chronic ailments. As the body’s source of immediate buffer becomes stressed, the bones present an emergency source. Calcium is then robbed from the bones, ultimately resulting in decreased bone density and osteoporosis. Besides affecting the bones, the digestive tract is also affected and is usually the first noticeable victim. Often starting with middle age, many people suffer from chronic heartburn, chronic indigestion, constipation, diarrhea, irritable bowel, or leaky gut.
Impaired nutrition also negatively affects the immune system. It is said that approximately 70% of our immune system resides in the gastrointestinal tract. A healthy digestive system is therefore critical to having a healthy immune system.
Some of the features for the Ionizer Plus include:
Electrolysis is the process that concentrates the minerals making the water alkaline. It accomplishes this by passing the water between two electrodes, one with a positive electric charge, the other with a negative electric charge. The minerals in water then become reduced to their ionic form. Minerals such as calcium, magnesium, and potassium have a positive charge and are attached to the negatively charged electrode. This water, alkaline in nature, is then separated from the water attracted to the positively charged electrode.
The Ionizer Plus features Dura-Plat platinum coated titanium electrodes that are the best available anywhere. It is these electrodes that give our product the longest product design life of any water electrolyzer available – 12 to 14 years for an average family of four.
Antioxidants are substances that protect cells and DNA from damage by unstable molecules called free radicals. Free radicals are molecules with incomplete electron shells that are highly reactive. They steal electrons from other molecules causing damage in the process. Free radicals are produced naturally during cellular metabolism and also result from exposure to environmental toxins and heavy metals.
Studies have shown that the alkaline water resulting from electrolysis has the ability to improve the functioning of antioxidants. This means that consuming water from the Ionizer Plus enables antioxidants like vitamin C or even your body’s natural antioxidants such as superoxide dismutase (SOD), to neutralize more free radicals than otherwise would be possible. The negative ORP of the water has shown to enhance the functioning of SOD further by helping to scavenge hydrogen peroxide, an intermediate yet still destructive oxygen species produced during the SOD’s reaction with free radicals.
