What do the Experts have to say about Alkaline Water?
Dr. Ingfreid Hobert MD
“Saya katakan anda tidak memerlukan obat-obatan yang mahal dengan segala efek sampingnya yang negatif untuk mengalami kesembuhan… Air alkali memiliki efek jangka panjang karena ia menjadikan tubuh anda alkali dan menyediakan antioksidan yang efektif.”
“…dengan minum air alkali, proses penuaan dapat dihambat dan limbah asam dapat dikurangi dalam jangka panjang ke level orang yang berusia lebih muda. Fungsi organ-organ dapat dibangkitkan kembali.”
David Niven Miller
Dr. Mu Shik Jhon
“Air Heksagonal / hexagonal water mengalir dengan mudah di dalam matriks sel di dalam tubuh, membantu penyerapan nutrisi dan proses pembuangan.
Dr. Robert Atkins
“sel-sel dan cairan tubuh pada kebanyakan orang … bersifat sangat asam. Hal ini dapat menyebabkan berbagai masalah penyakit. Sifat asam ini dapat mencegah tubuh anda menetralisir dan membuang toksin berbahaya dan beracun dan menjadikan anda lebih rentan terhadap oksidasi radikal bebas yang merusak sel yang membawa kepada penyakit kanker dan penyakit lainnya.”
Dr. Keiichi Morishita
Pengarang buku The Hidden Truth of Cancer (Kenyataan di Balik Kanker), Direktur Ochanomizu Clinic di Jepang dan kepala dari The International Natural Medicine Association
“Jika darah berkembang menjadi kondisi asam, kelebihan limbah asam tersebut harus disimpan di suatu tempat di dalam tubuh. Jika proses tak sehat ini terus berlanjut tahun demi tahun, area ini menjadi stabil bersifat asam dan sel-sel di sekitarnya perlahan-lahan mati. Sel sekitarnya yang terkena dampak bisa tetap bertahan hidup namun berubah menjadi abnormal, kondisi ini disebut malignant. Sel malignant tidak merespon perintah dari otak. Mereka mengalami pembagian tingkat sel yang diluar kontrol. Inilah yang disebut kanker. Pengobatan modern Amerika mengobati sel malignant ini seolah-olah mereka adalah bakteri atau virus. Mereka menggunakan kemoterapi (chemotheraphy), radiasi dan operasi untuk mengobati kanker, namun terapi tersebut tak dapat banyak membantu jika lingkungan asam tersebut masih ada. Minum air yang mengadung pH alkali yang tinggi dapat membantu mencegah kanker karena efeknya yang berlawanan dengan sifat asam. Di Asia, air alkali secara rutin diberikan kepada pasein dan dijadikan sebagai salah satu bagian dalam pengobatan.”
Dr. Nicholas Perricone
Pengarang buku The Perricone Prescription
Pandangan Dr. Nicholas Perricone terhadap air
“Banyak perempuan menghindari minum air karena takut menjadi kembung, hal ini merupakan satu pandangan yang salah. Sebagian besar dari kita ada dalam kondisi konstan terkena dehidrasi, kita hanya minum air di kala kita merasa haus, yang sebenarnya merupakan hal yang sedikit terlambat.”
“Semua reaksi biokimia terjadi di dalam air. Jika kita merasa sedikit dehidrasi, metabolisme turun sebanyak 3 persen, menyebabkan kenaikan berat sebanyak 1 pound (0.45 kg) setiap enam bulan. sangat penting untuk minum air sebanyak 8-10 gelas perhari. Jika anda meragukan efek pentingnya air bagi kulit kita, ambillah sebuah anggur dan sebuah kismis (kismis adalah anggur yang dikeringkan), lalu bandingkan sendiri perbedaannya.”
“Fountain of Youth (air mancur awet muda) tidak menumpahkan air yang mengadung soda, melainkan air yang benar-benar air murni. Seandainya saya dapat mengajarkan pasien dan murid-murid saya tentang 3 hal yang dapat membuat mereka awet muda selamanya, hal tersebut adalah 1. minum air, 2. minum air, 3. minum lebih banyak air. Jika anda tidak minum air, organ tubuh dan sel anda tidak dapat berfungsi. Bagaimana mungkin anda menginginkan kulit yang halus dan kencang jika anda menghindari minum banyak air?”
Dr. Fereydoon Batmanghelidj
Pengarang buku Your Body’s Many Cries for Water (Tubuh anda menjerit meminta air)
Pandangan Dr. Fereydoon Batmanghelidj terhadap dehidrasi
“Saya adalah seorang penelti. Saya telah meneliti tentang dehidrasi selama 20 tahun terakhir. Saat saya menemukan bahwa tujuan saya memberikan solusi atas kebanyakan kondisi penyakit di masyarakat kita bukanlah demi memperoleh keuntungan uang bagi saya, maka saya membagikan informasi ini ke masyarakat. Penelitian saya mengungkapakn bahwa dehidrasi yang tidak disengaja menimbulkan stress, penyakit kronis, dan banyak penyakit degeneratif lainnya (penyakit degeneratif adalah penyakit yang timbul akibat kemunduran fungsi organ tubuh). Mulut yang kering bukan hanya pertanda dehidrasi dan menunggu untuk merasa haus sebenarnya adalah hal yang salah. Ilmu medis berdasarkan pada pemahaman bahwa organ-organ dalam tubuh yang mengatur semua fungsi di dalam tubuh. Saya telah menjelaskan secara ilmiah dalam level molekular bahwa air yang mengatur semua fungsi di dalam tubuh termasuk juga fungsi organ-organ tubuh. 75% tubuh kita terdiri atas air. Otak kita terdiri atas 85% air. Airlah yang mengaktifkan dan memberikan energi pada semua organ tubuh. Jika anda tidak minum cukup air, beberapa fungsi tubuh akan menderita. Dehidrasi menyebabkan kekacauan sistem. Saat saya menggunakan kata “pengobatan air” hal itu mengacu pada mengobati dehidrasi dengan air.”
Dr. Howard Hay (1930)
“… orang yang memiliki kandungan darah yang bersifat asam besar kemungkinan akan terkena penyakit. Orang yang memiliki kadar tubuh yang alkali adalah orang yang sehat. Saat makanan dimetabolismekan, asam diproduksi di dalam tubuh yang kemudian dinetralisirkan oleh garam alkaline (karbonat) yang terdiri dari kalsium, magnesium, potasium dan sodium. Makanan yang yang mengandung klorin, phosporus, sulfur dan nitrogen, daging hewani dan karbohidrat olahan cenderung bersifat asam.”
Larry Clapp, PhD, JD, Author, Prostate Health in 90 Days without drugs or surgery
“Microwater: Microwater has been developed in Japan, when researchers studying people who drank water from certain fast-moving, rocky mountain streams noticed that they enjoyed extraordinarily good health. Microwater emulates this naturally occurring water with a higher pH level, a different structure, and different electrical properties than regular water. Drinking Microwater raises your cellular pH and fights off the free radicals which would otherwise damage the prostate as well as general health. (As you’ll learn in Chapter 6, free radicals are like cellular “buzz saws” that rip through healthy tissue, destroying everything in their wake. Keeping free radicals under control is vital.) Using a small device attached to your faucet, you can make Microwater at home.” page 76
Water is made up of H2O molecules, which are in turn composed of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom bonded together. But the H2O molecules are not completely stable; they will break up into smaller H and OH molecules. The positively charged H’s and the negatively charges OH’s can combine with calcium, potassium, or other substances in the water, creating various chemical reactions. If water has more of the positively charged H’s it will become acidic, but if the scales tilt in favor of the negatively charged OH’s it will be alkaline (basic). Many of the wastes that clog the body are acidic, especially those that come from our foods and soft drinks. The body’s internal cleansing mechanisms depend on an abundance of water around the clock.
Unable to process and eliminate the acidic wastes, the body often stores them in the heart, liver, colon, pancreas, or other parts of the body. As the acidic wastes accumulate, the body and bloodstream become overly acidic, and the delicate pH balance in body fluids, tissues, and cells is upset, leading to heart disease, cancer, elevated blood pressure, obesity, arthritis, diabetes, and many other ailments. Drinking the alkaline Microwater helps the body clear out the acidic wastes and restore the cellular pH balance to normal. Microwater also fights off the free radicals that would otherwise damage the prostate and general health. You can make Microwater at home, using a small device attached to your faucet…..Remember: cancer cannot live in a pH-balanced cellular environment. pages 122-123
Dr Theodore Baroody Author, Alkalize or Die
“I have administered over 5000 gallons of this water for about every health situation imaginable. I feel that restructured alkaline water can benefit everyone.”
Sang Whang, Author, Reverse Aging
“Here is the simple process of aging. Every living cell within our body creates waste products. The nutrients from our food are delivered to each cell and they burn with oxygen to provide energy for us to live. The burned nutrients are the waste products. The food that is either good or bad for you is determined by the amount and quality of the wastes produced: toxic, acid, alkaline, etc. Most of our cells go through metabolism and old dead cells become waste products.”
“These waste products must be discharged from our body. In fact, our body tries its best to dispose of them through urine and perspiration. Virtually all waste products are acidic; that is why urine is acidic and the skin surface is also acidic. The problem is that, due to several reasons, our body cannot get rid of 100% of the waste products it produces.”
“The main reason for this is our lifestyle. We, therefore, spend more time producing waste products than processing them.”
Dr. Robert O. Young, PhD
In his book, The pH Miracle says it this way:
“The pH level of our internal fluids affects every cell in our bodies. Extended acid imbalances of any kind are not well tolerated…Indeed, the entire metabolic process depends on a balanced internal alkaline environment. A chronically over-acid pH corrodes body tissue, slowly eating into the 60,000 miles of veins and arteries like acid eating into marble. If left unchecked, it will interrupt all cellular activities and functions, from the beating of your heart to the neural firing of your brain. ()… Over-acidification interferes with life itself leading to all sickness and disease!”
“Those willing to look again, and with clear eyes, will be rewarded with the secrets to permanent health. We can heal ourselves by changing the environment inside our bodies. Potentially harmful invaders, then, will have nowhere to grow and will become harmless.”
“After years of very positive continuous clinical experiment that I am conducting with hundreds of clients using electronically restructured alkaline water, it is my opinion that this technology will change the way in which all health providers and the public will approach their health in the coming years.
…My suggestion is to drink restructured alkaline water whenever possible.”
Felicia Drury Climent
Author, The Acid Alkaline balance Diet, Adjunct Professor, City College, New York
Dr Sherry Rogers, M.D.
“Alkaline water rids the body of acid waste… After carefully evaluating the results of my advice to hundreds of individuals, I’m convinced that toxicity in the form of acidic waste is the primary cause of degenerative disease.” Dr. Sherry Rogers is the author of You Are What You Ate, Tired or Toxic?, The Cure Is In The Kitchen, Macro Mellow, and Wellness Against The Odds.
Dr. Susan Lark
University lecturer and author of The Chemistry Of Success, says: “Drinking four to six glasses of alkaline water a day will help to neutralize over acidity and over time will help to restore your buffering ability. Alkaline water should be used when conditions of over acidity develop, such as cold, flu or bronchitis. Like vitamins C, E and Beta Carotene, alkaline water acts as an antioxidant because of its excess supply of free electrons. This can help the body against the development of heart disease, strokes, immune dysfunctions, and other common ailments.”
Daniel Reid, Author of The Tao of Detox says:
“Drinking alkaline water is a great way to neutralize and flush out all of the toxins and acids that drain from the tissues and bodily fluids, and to quickly rehydrate the body and keep the blood alkaline.”
David Niven Miller, Anti-aging expert and author of ‘Grow Youthful’,
“Increasing your consumption of good quality tap water or filtered water can transform your health and play a central role in the healing of virtually all degenerative diseases. However, alkaline water has profound long-term effects because it alkalizes your body and provides an effective antioxidant.”
Author of “Youthing” says that “by drinking alkaline water, the aging process can be reversed and the wastes can be reduced in the long-term to a level of a much younger person. The functions of the organs can be revived.”
Dr. Ingfreid Hobert MD
“You do not need expensive medicine with all the negative side effects to regain health… Alkaline water has profound long term effects because it alkalizes your body and provides an effective antioxidant”.
Dr Hidemitsu Hayashi, Director of the Water Institute, Tokyo,
He says that bad diets such as meat and potatoes, fried foods, soft drink colas, and sugars build up acid salts in the body. Often these deposits, by having to be stored away from the blood flow, can remain in the body for decades. He recommends the consumption of ionized alkaline water, which will slowly and gently wash these salts away.
Dr Howard Hay(1930)
“…people with more acidic blood were more likely to be ill. He defined a pH range of 7.4 to 7.5 to be associated with good health. When foods are metabolized, acids are produced which are neutralized by the alkaline salts (carbonates) of calcium, magnesium, potassium and sodium. Foods containing chlorine, phosphorous, sulfur and nitrogen, animal products and refined carbohydrates tend to be acid forming.”
Celia Wright, The Wright Diet,
“…the over-acid person as being grouchy, sensitive, exhausted, inclined to aches and pains, headaches, and problems with sleeping and acidity of the stomach. Smokers have been found to have a high acid content in their urine. Cravings appear to be reduced on a more alkaline diet.”
Dr Arthur M. Ecano, MD
Says that.. “if the world has accepted antioxidants to slow down the aging process, it should readily agree to the uses of ionized alkaline water as an antiaging agent. Their roles are closely linked and intertwined such that a lasting antiaging program is incomplete without addressing both free radicals and organic acid wastes.”
Are You Acid or Alkaline?
What do the experts say?
It’s quite easy to know whether you need to alkalize before making your decision to invest in alkaline balancing systems.
Although the vast majority of Westerners are overloaded with acid waste, there are a very few who are not.
In her excellent book The Chemistry of Success Dr Susan M. Lark MD says that understanding the importance of your pH balance will lead you to the realization that peak performance and general health are intimately related, and that robust health is essential if you want to meet your goals in life.
Dr Lark lists the benefits of maintaining a healthful state of slight alkalinity:
(Please note this is for education purposes only and is not intended to diagnose or treat. Consult a qualified medical practitioner when considering any health regimen modification.)

According to Dr Lark, the results you get show tendencies, not necessarily actualities.
Look at them in relation to how you feel and make your own decision.
There are ample markers here for your to self-assess with reasonable accuracy, but without expert medical advice you cannot rule our a pre-existing health condition that may be causing the trend you see in this test.
Between the ages of thirty and fifty
at least several of your vital chemical/metabolic functions cease operating at peak efficiency due to accumulative effects of the wear and tear of daily life. It is rare to have only one symptom; you will almost always identify a number of markers in the above test, if not a breakdown in several areas.
Symptom variations are limitless.
A fifty year old man may have a high frequency of allergy symptoms, low libido and high blood pressure. His female partner on the same diet may have digestion problems, an overly acid stomach, increasing fatigue, hot flushes and other transitional menopausal symptoms.
It’s important to understand that change has to occur holistically rather than symptom-by-symptom. We need to change the way our body functions at its most basic level rather than find yet another antidote for the latest symptom, which may just be another manifestation of pH imbalance.
This is why alkaline water is so effective; with water comprising 60-70% of a middle aged body, changing water pH has the ability to reduce acidity almost immediately. The advantage of using one of our advanced alkaline water ionizers is that you always have the choice of alkalinity level, so you can use the alkalizer as a complete balancing tool. An extended acid-producing activity (excess work or physical activity, stress etc) can be responded to immediately
