Turning an acidic body into an alkaline body
Here is a question I get often – so often I thought I would share it here…
“ I’m hearing about all these health benefits of consuming apple cider vinegar each morning. I read that it converts to acetic acid. If drinking acetic acid is good for us, doesn’t that make our blood more acidic? What about the alkaline Kangen water, making our blood less acidic? How do I turn an acidic body into an alkaline body? I’m confused.”
Sure, drinking apple cider vinegar helps your body get more alkaline because your body is a system of checks and balances. It actually causes your body to create more acid which helps you digest foods (namely proteins) better. It may not make sense to get an alkaline body by drinking acidic apple cider vinegar, but hear me out. Undigested proteins are poisonous to the body and putrify the system, so by creating more stomach acid, it actually helps digestion and even alleviate the heartburn people often associate with having too MUCH acid – although it is quite the opposite..Which begs the question, “doesn’t drinking alkaline water force my body to make LESS stomach acid?” – or, conversely,
“Won’t my stomach acid just neutralize the alkalinity of the water?”
It’s important to understand that when you drink Kangen Water – because it’s WATER, it does not need to be digested. Therefore, it simply passes through the stomach wall.
The real question is, (the one you didn’t ask, but I’m going to tell you anyway ) “With this fact in mind, how does Kangen Water help the body become more alkaline? ” Kangen water does not help the body to get alkaline because the water is alkaline, surprisingly enough. It creates an alkaline body becauseit is actually alkaLIZED, as opposed to alkaline – a process done via electrolysis. AlkaLINE water can be done with chemicals (such as baking soda). When you buy bottled alkaline water, it will NOT help you towards that alkaline body, because you will not be able to absorb the chemicals. Frighteningly enough,
you can make radiated water alkaline – it’ll still kill you but…it IS alkaline.
So… Alkalinity alone will not solve the problem. As Albert Einstein said, “You cannot solve a problem using the same methods that created the problem”. In other words, you cannot get that elusive alkaline body by ADDING something to an acidic body. Doing that would have a short term effect or a “Band aide”. The real reason Kangen Water gets you into an alkaline body state is because of how the three properties work together, and unless those three properties are all present and working together, the result will be minimal, at best.
So the three properties are; alkalized, antioxidant, and microclustered.
So let’s break it down…
Each cell is surrounded by an outer membrane. (Think of it like a skin) everyday, each one of your hundred trillion cells gets bombarded about 10,000 times per day by free radicals. Those free radicals steal your life force. (Technically, they are missing an electron and are stealing them from your cells) In order to protect itself, the outer cell wall thickens (think of that skin getting a callous) when this happens, water, which carries oxygen and nutrients, cannot get into the cell to deliver it’s gifts and the waste can’t get out. The cell then becomes acidic due to all that trapped waste and lack of oxygen. When a cell reproduces, it splits in two. So a dehydrated, acidic cell will reproduce a dehydrated acidic cell, and now we have the beginnings of degeneration. So, antioxidants are the first line of defense, and the first order towards an alkaline body, since they neutralize all those free radicals. Each glass of Kangen Water, carries something like 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (10 to the 21st power) of antioxidants which are there as an electrical charge and are ready to donate their electrons to the free radicals. Now the cell can soften and relax.
Second, is the restructuring of the water. Kangen Water has smaller water clusters, (6 sided molecules, or hexagonal. Compared that to the 15 to 100 of regular water, you can see why it works 6 times more efficiently in your body, in carrying things in and out of your cells and throughout your body. Now that the cell has relaxed, and can more easily accept the oxygen and nutrients carried by the water – and, now that the water has this combination of being energized and microclustered, the nutrients get in, the waste gets out and the cell itself can get more alkaline.
This is the only way to truly get a truly alkaline body.
Here would also be a good place to note that your body is only as healthy as each cell. So by getting the CELLS healthy, eventually you will get the whole body healthy.
Now that the cell is hydrated and clean (gotten the garbage out, so to speak) when it then reproduces, it gets a little more alkaline. With Kangen Water, this happens very quickly, because there is no limit to the amount you drink, or how many antioxidants you can use, so, you keep drinking the water, flooding your body with antioxidants, getting the nutrients in and the waste out and keep repeating that process until all that degeneration is reversed. Please read my article, “Can I get too alkaline?” for more information about that.
So the “magic” is really simple science, but doesn’t happen over night.

Now, LASTLY, I get to the pH, or alkalinity.
