What to REALLY Look for in an Ionizer Company

ionizer options

With bottled water out-selling carbonated drinks for the first time, there is no limit to the options being made available to consumers by money-hungry providers and most of it is NOT what it claims to be! Bottled water dominates more square footage in the grocery story than any other product!  More and more “alkaline” waters and more and more”hydrogen infused” options are hitting the shelves and the $30.00 per gallon price tag doesn’t seem to be slowing anybody down!  Wise consumers are looking at affordable, long-term options so that they can have an endless supply of alkalized water in their own home and these wise consumers are looking to consumer ionization appliances as a result.  These wise consumers also understand that by purchasing a long-term solution; they save thousands and thousands of dollars over the long run.

If you’re a wise consumer and you’re considering the purchase of an ionization appliance, it is SO IMPORTANT that you complete the process by making a wise decision about what you invest in!  Not all ionizer providers are created equal and not every “ionizer” will provide the results you’re hoping for.  Here are a few things to consider when you’re looking to invest in a long-term water solution for health and finances:

Longevity.  Because consumers are rapidly catching on to the benefits of drinking cleaner, healthier water and more alkaline water and the ionizer industry is beginning to boom as a result.  Unfortunately, there are many start-up and 3rd party ionizer companies chasing the market, promising the moon and selling the truth short online.  Look for a company that has been in the market long enough to be established AND long enough to have proven to stand behind their product and their warranties, one that offers reliable and reasonable service inside of the U.S. and one that can speak with experience about the life-cycle expectations of your unit.  a quality ionizer SHOULD last for 20+ years with simple, routine maintenance. Look for a company that has the stay-power to be there for you long after your investment and one that already has a track record to “prove” how long your investment should last!

Reputable.  There are good things and not-so-good things about the Internet.  One of the not-so-good things is that it’s easy to “look good on paper”.  Dealing with strangers on the Internet over  ANY investment but particularly a sizable investment is never a good idea.  Many of the 3rd party ionizer companies that you see online have already undergone name changes a few times and some have the worst Better Business Bureau ratings possible; that’s saying a whole lot when so many of them have been in business for just a few years.  It’s not a good sign OR a good investment to put your money with a company that has already proven to be a problem for other consumers.  Look for a company that has been around the block a few times and one that you can go directly to for any concerns or problems that you have.

USA Focused.  Most (if not all) ionizers are manufactured outside of the US.  The majority of the units that you see on the market today are manufactured by the same Korean manufacturer under different labels.  The company that you may buy from is likely a 3rd party representative and not the manufacturer at all and in that case, they don’t manufacture, service or warranty the units at a;;.  When services is needed, your unit must be shipped back to the original manufacturer in Korea, and at your expense.  Look for a USA focused ionizer company that will actually stand behind and service your investment here in the United States.   In other words, look for a direct manufacturer and NOT a 3rd party sales entity.

Sight Unseen.   If you’re going to make the investment in ionization technology for you and your family, it’s not a good idea purchase sight unseen.  You should have the chance to see it (and try it) for yourself before you buy.  Although one company may give you the opportunity to see and try for yourself most of them don’t.  Each ionizer on the market is vastly different from another and it’s not reasonable for you to expect that what you find online is like what you’ve already seen and tried for yourself!  Consumers don’t buy vehicles that way…”test driving” one brand and then buying a completely different vehicle without ever seeing or driving it first.  That is a risky approach no matter how large or how small the price tag is and it makes no financial sense whatsoever.   Look for a company that will allow you to see (and try) the product for yourself before you buy!

Warranty:  There are warranties and then there are warranties, and it’s important to select a company that will not only stand behind the warranty, but also one that will be able to honor it within the U.S.  Wise consumers recognize that there is no such thing as a lifetime, unlimited warranty without a “catch” of some kind.  Late-night infomercials often use this strategy to entice sales, but they generally have low-cost items and studies have proven that 98.9% of consumers will not bother to ship back a low-ticket item even with that “money back guarantee”.  If necessary, ask to see the full warranty before you purchase (versus a warranty certificate) and don’t just “buy in” to a company that says they’ll stand behind the product “forever”and ever no matter what.  Every “lifetime” warranty on the planet has exclusions of some sort and “lifetime” warranty ionizer companies are no different.  If they go out of business; you have no warranty and if you’re required to ship your product back to Korea to the manufacturer (avg shipping $600 each way), it makes no financial sense whatsoever.  Look for a company that has a solid (and realistic) warranty along with U.S. service centers prepared to offer timely and efficient serving whenever it’s needed.

Investing in ionization water technology is (by far) the single most significant investment that you can make for your health and well-being and it makes perfect financial sense for the long run…if you buy the right one, that is!  When it comes to anything consumable, it pays to do your homework AND it never pays to skimp.

Stop Playing Russian Roulette With Our Children!


Toxicity is the root cause of most of the health challenges that we’re having today and yet we continue to turn a blind eye to the problem.  From autism to Parkinson’s, toxins can be blamed for your neurological nightmare.  If you doubt that, then you need to take the time to see what NIH has to say about the dangers of your environmental exposure in Reducing Environmental Cancer Risk…a report spearheaded by the President’s Cancer Panel and provided to the White House in 2009.

There are lots of things to blame for your toxic overload.  From pesticides on your food to the mercury in your dryer sheets to the water you drink.   Too much toxicity and you’ll eventually pay the ultimate price for your ignorance.

Avoiding toxicity is a big  job but you can do it.  Here are a few basic steps that you can start taking right away:

1.  Focus on your food.   Where does it come from and how is it grown?  Read labels and begin to build your knowledge base.  Most of what we’re eating today resembles a science project gone wrong.   In an attempt to increase the size and the amount of the food that is grown in the U.S. we use every chemical (and hormone) option known to science.   Your food may look good,  but what you can’t see you will hurt you!   “Don’t judge the book by its cover”.  The way your food LOOKS has nothing to do with how safe and healthy it is to consume.

2.  Focus on your water.  If you ask people OUTSIDE of the U.S. about water, they have a whole different perspective than most Americans.  Water isn’t “just water” any more than air is “just air” or food is “just food”.  If you are on a public water system then you  must know by now that your water is recycled sewage.  It takes a whole lot of chemicals (up to 300) to make sewage potable and most of them wreak havoc on your health.  If you turn your nose up to tap water and exchange it for bottled water instead,  then you’re making a huge mistake.  In addition to spending $10.00 a gallon (on the average), you’re also exposing yourself and your family to harmful toxins PROVEN to cause cancer and disrupt hormones.  If this is all new to you then you’ve flunked the test on  improving health and avoiding disease!

If you decide to get proactive and start fighting for your own health then you can take one HUGE step that will kill a lot of birds with one stone…purchase a quality water ionizer.  Here we go again.  An ionizer is not “just an ionizer” any more than a car is “just a car” or a house is “just a house”.  You get what you pay for and you can’t afford to cut corners when it comes to your health.

There is only one ionizer on the market today that has been used in hospitals and prescribed by physicians for the past 40 years and only one that receives the Gold Seal from the water quality association year-after-year.  The Enagic SD501 is the Cadillac of the line and is recommended by more physicians than any other ionizer on the planet.  You shouldn’t cut corners on your ionizer purchase any more than you should look for a discount surgeon.  Then again, to some people money is more important than health…sad but true.

With the right ionizer, you can benefit from an endless supply of  healthy drinking water, you can easily remove harmful pesticides from your foods, you can never worry about things like eColi, Salmonella, MRSA (or Ebola) again AND you can self- treat many things like strep throat and psoriasis.  The list of benefits is endless.

Stop playing Russian Roulette and get serious about health and prevention. If you don’t care enough about yourself to make healthy changes, do it for the next generation.  It’s never too late to turn things around.

 Urgent message from Environmental Working Group:

Last week the Environmental Protection Agency gave Dow Chemical Company the green light to a toxic combination of the herbicide 2, 4-D and glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup, on millions of acres of genetically engineered crops across the United States.

This is a huge step backward that could have perilous consequences for public health; 2, 4-D has been linked to an increased risk of Parkinson’s disease, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, suppressed immune function and other serious health problems.

Blood Thinners? How About a Good DIY Approach?

blood clotThe U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently approved what they consider to be  a “very promising” anti-clotting drug for high-risk heart patients in spite of severe opposition over potential side affects.

The Whole Truth and Nothing But The Truth

Sold as Zontivity (vorapaxar), the medication is said to be designed to lower the chances of heart attack, stroke and cardiovascular death. It also claims to lower the need for procedures to restore blood flow to the heart or to blocked arteries in the legs.  The study that supported the drug’s approval reports that Zontivity lowered these risks from 9.5 percent to 7.9 percent over a three-year period.  That doesn’t seem like much of a drop over a 3-year period to me but what do I know?

What is the cost of Zontivity?  Drum roll please…the average wholesale price is $320.76 for a 30 tablet bottle, $962.28 for the 90 tablet bottle, and $1069.20 for a 100 tablet bottle.  The average unit price is $10.69 per tablet.  That sure is a high price to pay for not-so-promising results!

The bigger “price” to pay comes with the known side effects of taking any blood thinner:

  • Bleeding that is severe or that you cannot control (assuming it’s not too late)
  • Pink, red, or brown urine (signs of internal bleeding)
  • Vomiting blood or your vomit looks like “coffee grounds” (sign of internal bleeding)
  • Red or black stools that looks like tar  (sign of internal bleeding)
  • Coughing up blood or blood clots (time to call 9-1-1)

The Wiser Alternatives

Before you stand in line to get this “very promising” anti-clotting drug (or any of the others by a different name) at the modest price of $10.69 per tablet, I suggest that you spend a little time educating yourself on ways to get your arteries to cooperate without the need for dangerous drugs.

The first order of business for sustaining healthy arteries is to  properly hydrate.  Your blood is 90% water and as you continue in a dehydrated state, the blood will begin to thicken and plaque will begin to build up. It really isn’t rocket-science…doctors just make it seem like it is.  Stay hydrated!

Since water is a very important part of the equation the amount of water you drink and the kind of water you drink should be a priority for you.  You may be assuming that you’re not dehydrated because you drink some sort of fluids throughout the day but it is reported that most American’s are chronically dehydrated which can easily explain so many of our health problems.  Never, EVER merely count on feeling thirsty.  Thirst is the warning signal on your “dashboard” that comes on when you’re already seriously dehydrated.  Since we lose our sense of thirst as we age, it’s not a good idea to count on feeling thirsty as a signal to drink water.

You’re probably already spending a small fortune on other beverages or, worse yet, bottled water (at the rate of $5.00+ a gallon).  It’s time to bite-the-bullet and purchase a quality water ionizer that will produce (what some countries consider to be) “medical grade water“.  Why medical grade? Because restructured water has amazing benefits for the human body.  Buy it once…drink for years…feed your arteries!  If you buy the best ionizer on the market to produce the best water results for the next 20 years or so, you’ll be paying a good price for this investment in your health.  Then again, not nearly as much as you’ll be paying for Zontivity AND you’ll have NO SIDE EFFECTS!

The Next Order of Business

The next recommended order of business is to take a quality supplement that has been proven to reduce plaque in the arteries.    There are hundreds of studies confirming the countless benefits of turmeric.  In fact, the  turmeric studies are so compelling that pharmaceutical firms are working hard to come up with a synthetic alternative that they can charge an arm and a leg for.   The finest turmeric on the market today will cost about $5.00 a day.   A small price to pay for healthy arteries AND NO DANGEROUS SIDE EFFECTS!

I guess if you want to sit back in your recliner and wait for the next “very promising” pharmaceutical to hit the market then that’s your prerogative.  You may experience less out-of-pocket expenses by sticking with whatever potion your physician tells you to take but you’ll sure pay a bigger price for it in the long run.  Don’t forget, there is no cure for whatever ails you…your doctor is merely treating symptoms.  Your best defense is natural prevention.  You’ll be amazed to see what the body can do with a little help!

The human body is a miraculous creation and it is designed to “mend” itself IF we give it what it needs.  Don’t you think it’s time to be more in-tune with what your body NEEDS instead of relying on high-priced, “highly recommended” pharmaceuticals that come with a whole lot of serious risks?

Bottoms-up, Boomers!

Dr. Mercola Helps Add Insight to Differences in Water

disossiationDr. Gerald Pollack, author of The Fourth Phase of Water…Beyond Solid, Liquid and Vapor was interviewed by Mercola in a segment  that was entitled “What You Don’t Know About Water and Really Should”.  Here is Dr. Pollack’s bio along with highlights of the interview pertaining to “living water” (e.g., Kangen Water).

Dr. Gerald Pollack

Professor Gerald Pollack is Founding Editor-in-Chief of the scientific journal, WATER and is recognized as an international leader in science and engineering.

The University of Washington Faculty chose Pollack, in 2008, to receive their highest annual distinction: the Faculty Lecturer Award. He was the 2012 recipient of the coveted Prigogine Medal for thermodynamics of dissipative systems. He has received an honorary doctorate from Ural State University in Ekaterinburg, Russia, and was more recently named an Honorary Professor of the Russian Academy of Sciences, and Foreign Member of the Srpska Academy. Pollack is a Founding Fellow of the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering and a Fellow of both the American Heart Association and the Biomedical Engineering Society. He recently received an NIH Director’s Transformative R01 Award for his work on water, and maintains an active laboratory in Seattle.

Pollack’s interests have ranged broadly, from biological motion and cell biology to the interaction of biological surfaces with aqueous solutions. His 1990 book, Muscles and Molecules: Uncovering the Principles of Biological Motion, won an “Excellence Award” from the Society for Technical Communication; two subsequent books: Cells, Gels and the Engines of Life, and The Fourth Phase of Water, both won that Society’s “Distinguished Award.”

Pollack is recognized worldwide as a dynamic speaker and a scientist willing to challenge any long-held dogma that does not fit the facts.

“Your body consists of over 99 percent water molecules, but the water in your cells is not regular water, but highly structured water with special properties

There is a fourth phase of water, not H2O but H3O2, and can be called living water. It’s more viscous, dense, and alkaline than regular water; has a negative charge, and can hold energy, much like a battery, and deliver energy too”. 

It’s about time that proper scientific attention (in the U.S.) be given to the properties of “living water!    Those of you who believe that those of us  promoting “living water” are delusional…it’s YOU who are missing the boat.   No matter how much juicing you do…no matter how many alkaline foods you eat…no matter what supplement-of-the-month you’re taking…no matter how long you earth or how much you exercise,  nothing, absolutely nothing,  replaces the body’s need for LOTS of water…LIVING WATER.   

Water is no more “just water” than air is “just air” or food is “just food”. Wake up skeptics!  I hate to see you out there on that island by yourself!

In a Multitasking World Convenience is KING!

multitaskAmericans love convenience.  They want quick ready-made meals, smart phones that monitor their every move, applications that prompt everything from coupons to exercise programs and gyms that are open 24/7 just in case they’re up for a 3:00 AM workout.   Americans flock to convenience stores and pay as much as 30% more for items just for the ease of the trip to the store.   Yep..Americans LOVE convenience and they’ll pay just about any price for it.

More and more Americans are embracing the convenience of owning their own ionizer and not just for the health benefits, although there are hundreds of research articles on PubMed that validate the health benefits of restructured, ionized water.  Instead many are drawn to the convenience that the right ionizer can bring to the table.

No more schlepping cases of bottled water that they already know is not healthy for them.  No more worries about running out of laundry detergent (or other cleaning products), no more inconvenient visits to the doctor’s office for “simple” things like conjunctivitis, no more costly dermatology visits for skin care treatments, etc.  What do these things have to do with an ionizer?  That’s easy.  Just by changing the pH of your water, you can accomplish this much and MORE.  It’s not “magic”…it’s just science.  You might need to review basic chemistry to “get it”.

If you want to ride the wave with others who have embraced this technology, be sure to do your research.  You get what you pay for when it comes to a long-term ionizer.   Getting consistent levels is key to the results and the longevity of your investment.  If you have a “knock-off” mentality it’s probably best to opt-out of this purchase all together as you’d likely be disappointed with the (lack of) results and you may end up spending a whole lot more in the long run.

I bought the top-of-the-line ionizer and I don’t regret it.  In reality I saved a whole lot more in the first year than the price I paid for the unit.  My ionizer is categorized as a medical device (outside of the US) so it has all medical grade (safe and durable) components that are required for this classification.  I’m no groupie BUT it is reassuring to me that the ionizer I use is used by those on the Who’s-Who list.  Nothing but THE BEST for the A-Listers!  Lastly, my ionizer is produced by the leader in the industry…a company that has four decades of track record and they can validate the longevity  of a well-cared-for unit as being in the 20-25 year range.  It will probably outlive me!   How convenient…
