Fiji Water: Artesian Water or Environmental Nightmare?

Fiji bayImage by jdlasica via Flickr

Today, I am going to share with you some information that was recently brought to my attention. The environmental disaster that is occurring with bottled water is alarming. In the US we are consuming bottled water at an incredible rate. Many of the brands are bottled here in the US, however, we also import bottled water. There are many health issues that are associated with drinking bottled water where ever it comes from. But it seems completely excessive to import bottled water given the environmental impact.

Fiji’s Environmental Contribution

Fiji Water has been criticized for the environmental costs embedded in each bottle. The production plant runs on diesel fuel, 24 hours a day. The high-grade plastic used to make the bottles is transported from China to Fiji, and then (full of water) to the United States. A 1 liter bottle of FIJI Water contaminates 6.74 liters of water to stretch-blow mold the plastic, burns fossil fuel to transport plastics from China and full bottles to the U.S., and produces 0.25 kg of greenhouse emissions.

250g of CO2 are released for each bottle of FIJI Water imported to the United States.  This includes 93g for manufacturing a bottle in China, 4g for transporting an empty bottle to Fiji, and 153g for shipping a full bottle to the United States. Fiji Water’s total carbon footprint, a measure of the exclusive global amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases emitted over the full life cycle of a product or service, was 85,396 tonnes CO2eq in the base year 2006 – 2007 for all bottles produced. Seventy-two percent of those emissions came from manufacturing raw materials, bottling and ocean freight. Overall, the average energy cost to make the plastic, fill the bottle, transport it to market and then deal with the waste would be "like filling up a quarter of every bottle with oil.“

Additional Environmental Impact Created By Fiji Water

Bringing these bottles of water here from the other side of the earth involves packing them into cardboard boxes. In the South Pacific, this often means rain forest cardboard, produced from rain forest destruction. The boxes of bottles are then trucked from the bottling plant to a sea cargo terminal in Fiji, then shipped across the ocean on fossil-fuel-powered freighters to the US Pacific coast. The fuel these ships use produces exhaust gases – Nitrogen Oxides (NOx), Sulfur Oxides (SOx), Carbon Monoxide (CO), Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and Particulate Matter (PM) which contribute to global warming and other air quality issues.

Unregulated oil and bilge water discharges affect the sea and marine life as does the leakage and waste fluids from ship machinery. Noise and vibration from vessels impact marine mammals. Grease on wires washed off during mooring operations gets into the sea. Chemicals used for deck cleaning or surface preparation prior to painting can be washed overboard. Aquatic marine organisms and pathogens attached to hulls are spread around the world, threatening indigenous species.

Once they arrive in the United States, they’re loaded onto trains and trucks, all powered by fossil fuels, and eventually warehoused, prodded with forklifts, loaded onto other trucks, shipped to other warehouses and eventually delivered to your local convenience store or drink machine.

It is already clear that the manufacturing process and product distribution is energy-intensive and produces toxic byproducts, but there is another major environmental impact. When we’re done drinking our water, over 85 percent of these bottles wind up in landfills (where they take up to 1,000 years to degrade) and incinerators—the latter of which can release a potpourri of deadly toxins into the environment. Recycling plastic bottles is still often cost-prohibitive.
From the environmental impact, you might as well be swigging down a pint of oil! All of a sudden that bottle of refreshing Fiji Water doesn’t sound so refreshing!

I feel so passionate about this issue that I spent a couple of months putting together a DVD about the impacts of bottled water on the environment, global communities and your health and you can purchase it here. Below is a trailer for the movie. JOIN us now to raise people's awareness of the harmful impacts of drinking bottled water.

Impacts of Chlorine on the Body

Environmental Protection Agency logoImage via Wikipedia

What Experts Say About Chlorine In Tap Water

“Known carcinogens are found in drinking water as a direct consequence of the practice of chlorination”

“Cancer risk among people drinking chlorinated water is 93% higher than among those whose water does not contain chlorine.”

“Chlorine is the greatest crippler and killer of modern times. While it prevented epidemics of one disease, it was creating another. Two decades ago, after the start of chlorinating our drinking water in 1904, the present epidemic of heart trouble, cancer and senility began.”

“The National Academy of Sciences estimate that 200-1000 people die in the United States each year from cancers caused by ingesting the contaminants in water.”

“Drinking tap water that is chlorinated is hazardous if not deadly to your health.”

“The cause of arteriosclerosis and resulting heart attacks and strokes is none other than the ubiquitous chlorine in our drinking water.”

“Chlorine gas was used despicably during WWI. When the war was over, the use of chlorine was diverted to poisoning the germs in our drinking water. All water supplies throughout the country were chlorinated. The combination of chlorine and animal fats results in arteriosclerosis, heart attacks and death.”

“48-49 states are filing to adequately enforce existing drinking water regulations.”

Extend your life by 20 years or more.... (part 1)

WARNING: Tap Water is dangerous, do NOT consume!

Is Bottled Water an option?
Lab tests on 10 brands of bottled water detected 38 chemicals including bacteria, caffeine, the pain reliever acetaminophen, fertilizer, solvents, plastic-making chemicals and the radioactive element strontium. Though some probably came from tap water that some companies use for their bottled water, other contaminants probably leached from plastic bottles, the researchers said.

WARNING: Bottled Water is dangerous, do NOT consume.

BPA in Baby Food, or STOP the Poison

PolycarbonateImage via Wikipedia

Bisphenol A traces found in baby food: Health Canada
Last Updated: Friday, July 10, 2009 11:04 AM ET Com
CBC News
Health Canada says it has found bisphenol A in baby foods sold in glass jars with metal lids but says the level is "extremely low and poses no health or safety concerns."
The department found that among the products it tested where bisphenol A could be quantified, about 70 per cent had levels of less than one part per billion. That's well below the limit of 600 parts per billion set by a directive for bisphenol A (BPA) in food.
In a survey posted on its website Thursday, Health Canada also said its testing found low levels in some 18.5-litre polycarbonate bottles of drinking water.

BPA is used to make epoxy resins in the protective linings on the inside of metal lids and containers. The linings prevent corrosion of the metal and contamination.
The chemical also makes plastic hard and shatterproof and is found in water bottles, as well as consumer products like CDs. Studies have shown the chemical can imitate the female hormone estrogen, and it has been linked to cancer and infertility in animals.
Health Canada's findings covered 122 baby foods prepackaged in glass jars with metal lids, representing seven brands by six different companies. The baby food was bought in Ottawa last August.

The bottled water testing included samples of 54 different products representing 21 brands by 16 companies. They were bought in Ottawa stores in April 2008. The containers were made of metal, glass, high-density polyethylene, polyethylene terephthalate and polycarbonate.

Levels of BPA from the non-polycarbonate water products were below the "method detection limit" of 0.5 parts per billion. But bisphenol A was detected in 13 of 17 samples from four of the five polycarbonate bottled water products. Concentrations ranged from 0.5 to a high of 8.82 parts per billion, with an average of 1.5 parts per billion.

"Since migration of BPA from [polycarbonate] containers into water at room temperature is very slow, it is likely that the products with higher BPA were exposed to heat (e.g., under the sun) during storage and/or transportation," the report said.

In a release issued by the Canadian Bottled Water Association on Thursday, executive director Elizabeth Griswold said the Health Canada study is "both validation and vindication."
"It clearly demonstrates that bottled water is a safe, healthy and portable alternative to other beverages," Griswold said.

Yeah right.

In October 2008, Canada became the first country in the world to ban the import and sale of polycarbonate baby bottles containing BPA, saying infants were more vulnerable than adults to such chemicals. The federal government also announced it would devote $1.7 million over three years to study the chemical. Health Canada's ongoing evaluation of bisphenol A has included a review of human and animal studies around the world, in addition to research into how much of the chemical is leaching from consumer products. The findings released Thursday are part of that research.

In March, Health Canada released a study of canned pop that found the vast majority of the drinks contain BPA...

"Clean Water" and "It Cleans It"

My MedicationImage by spike55151 via Flickr

There is a difference in "clean water" and "clean" when using the Kangen Water machine.

The green button that says "clean water" and has 7.0 pH written on it is 7.0 pH water. The "clean water" is dispensed through the top flexible hose. This water has been through the cleaning filter portion of the system but it has not gone through the electrolysis process. This water is used when you are taking medications, for watering small animals, and mixing baby formula. The Kangen water (8.5-9.5 pH) is hexagonal and because of that structure, it absorbs into your cells much quicker than other types of water. Medications are not created for this absorption rate. They are created for normal tap water. Most vitamins are fine with the higher pH waters since you want them to absorb quickly. That way you are receiving the maximum benefit before you urinate them out. However, if you were to use it with Niacin, it is going to hit your system much quicker and could be quite uncomfortable creating an intense flush. Same would be the case for blood pressure medicine, etc. So you can see why you would want to use "Clean water 7.0" for taking medications. Be on the safe side.

When taking prescription medications: discontinue drinking the Kangen Water (8.5-9.5 pH) 10-15 minutes prior to taking medication, use the Clean water (7.0 pH) to take your prescriptions, then give yourself at least 30 minutes before resuming drinking the Kangen Water (8.5 pH to 9.5 pH).

It is also suggested that if you feel the need to drink water with a meal and the meal contains a concentrated protein, like animal products, that you consume Clean water (7.0 pH) rather than Kangen water (8.5-9.5 pH) with that meal. However, Dr. Shinya's book the Enzyme Factor suggests that you refrain from drinking water at all during meals and 1 hour prior to meals. He says that it helps with enzymes and digestion.

Then you asked about when the machine says "it cleans it". This is actually a cleaning cycle for the machine. After a certain amount of water has run through the machine, it automatically cleans the system. Just turn the water on and allow it to run until the machine says the water type that the button is on. For example, let's say you have the button on 9.5pH, turn the water on and you reach out to put some water into a container, the machine says "it cleans it". You should allow the machine to run water into the sink until it says "Kangen Water 9.5", then you can put your container under the facet and fill it.

After making Strong Acidic Water (2.5 pH), your machine will run a clean cycle also. Just set the button on the type of drinking water you want, turn on the faucet and let it run through the cycle. It will let you know when the type of water you selected is flowing through the nozzle.

Hope this clears up some questions about features on the SD501 Water System.

The environmental toll of plastics

Bridges of New WestminsterImage by janusz l via Flickr

The environmental toll of plastics

From cell phones and computers to bicycle helmets and hospital IV bags, plastic has molded society in many ways that make life both easier and safer. But the synthetic material also has left harmful imprints on the environment and perhaps human health, according to a new compilation of articles authored by more than 60 scientists from around the world.

Evidence is mounting that the chemical building blocks that make plastics so versatile are the same components that might harm people and the environment. And its production and disposal contribute to an array of environmental problems, too. Green solutions, however, are becoming available, the scientists say.

Staying hydrated

Patience Is The Best Remedy For Every TroubleImage by stage88 via Flickr

Staying hydrated

One should not rely on being thirsty to indicate when we should drink water. It just is not a good idea to use thirst alone as a guide for when to drink Kangen water. Once the body becomes dehydrated , that is the signal for your body to be thirsty. By the time you become thirsty, it's true and clear that you are already slightly dehydrated. Also, be alert that as you are more often dehydrated the sensation of thirst is also diminished, and as we get older the body is less able to sense dehydration, and then send your brain signals of thirst . .

To prevent dehydration and be healthy make sure your body has the fluids it needs, make water your beverage of choice. Nearly every healthy adult can consider the following:

§ Drink a liter of Kangen water about 45 minutes before each meal. And if you can hold off on drinking more water afterwards until the food has passed from the stomach, this is to allow digestion to occur completely. I know when this happens you might not be aware so 20 minutes is usually good.

§ Drink Kangen water before, during and after exercise. You can check your total body weight loss if you want to be technical about the re hydration you need after exercise. If you are this accurate we can suggest some sports trainers and nutritionist to work with you.

§ Substitute Kangen water for alcoholic drinks at social gatherings. Or at least drink one glass of Kangen water in between any alcoholic beverages. Also a small dash of Kangen water in wine will make it more smooth and decrease the acidity. Ask us about Kangen Ice wow! This is great! I can make a whole bunch of Kangen ice for this 4th of July weekend, drinks and everything is better!

If you drink water from a glass bottle, thoroughly clean the bottle often at least every other day, rinse with 2.5 pH water. If you want my bottle suggestions please send an e-mail...

If you're concerned about your fluid intake, check with your doctor or a registered dietitian. Caution however that if you are excessively thirsty and experience dramatically increased urination, these might be signs of a more serious medical condition.

Water Can Make A Huge Difference.

Here is a miraculous story of a young teenager from Chelsea, Alabama that suffered from psoriasis.

This is a photo taken on February 5. He applied pH 2.5 water to the area and on March 16th, he saw significant reduction in the irritation as you will seen in this next photo.

After only a few short months on using the 2.5pH water on the area, it is almost gone. Here is a photo taken on May 1st.

Some people with psoriasis will find that the 2.5 pH water will DRY out their skin and make it very sore. Using Beauty Water with a pH of 5.5 may prove to be the better option for those folks. And of course, drinking plenty of the Kangen Water is the long term key to health and healing as we all know!

Ways to Use Kangen Water

Recently we attended an event and heard several different ways to potentially use Kangen water from Dr. Dave Carpenter. He did not suggest that it is a cure or a remedy; however, it is an action that could be taken as an experiment to see what happens. After all, it is just water and what could it hurt to try a natural approach.

Burns, rug burns, and sunburns - Spritz some 11.5 pH water on it to deal with pain and then some beauty water 5.5 pH to heal it up. Soak the area and then allow to dry before putting on clothing.

For swollen gums, swish around some 11.5 pH and then spit it out. To kill the infection, rinse mouth with 2.5 pH water and then spit it out.

Mouthwash - The 2.5 pH Strong Acidic water can be used as a mouthwash. The high ORP of this water has been shown to destroy bacteria and other micro-organisms with exposure times of less than a minute. It's the bacteria breaking down the foods in your mouth that produce the acids that cause tooth decay.

Strep Throat - Gargle with 2.5 pH 3-4 times per day. For children that cannot gargle, you can spray (10 pumps) from a spray bottle into their throat 3 or 4 times per day. It will not hurt them if they swallow this water. It is just water.

Psoriasis & Eczema - Dr. Dave Carpenter has seen a lot of success with using the 5.5 pH Beauty water sprayed on the areas 3-6 times per day and then allowing it to air dry. If it is irritated and inflamed, try the ll.5 pH water. You wouldn't want to use the pH 2.5 too much as it would tend to dry it out. However in extreme cases, you may want to try the 2.5 pH first, let it air dry. Then when it is completely dry, soak a cloth in 11.5 pH water and apply to the area for at least 5 minutes. Let it dry again and then apply the 5.5 pH Beauty water and allow to air dry. Repeat this process at least twice per day. It is highly recommended to spray 5.5 pH Beauty water on the area at least every 2 waking hours. This condition is a symptom of an over acidic body and therefore it is important to drink the recommended amounts of Kangen Water to help neutralize the acidity in the body.

Acne - There are a few different ways suggested for using the water with acne depending on the type and severity. None of them will hurt you, since it is just water, so you can experiment to determine the one that works for you. If you have a big, inflamed and infected spot, spray some 2.5pH Strong Acidic water on it and then let it air dry. This will kill any bacteria. Then when it is completely dry, soak a cloth with the pH 11.5 water and put it straight on the pimple for 5 minutes. This helps the body neutralize the acids that are causing the acne. After this process, dry the area again and now spray some Beauty water 5.5pH and allow that to air dry. Repeat twice per day. If the acne doesn't look infected, spray some Beauty water 5.5pH on it. If you drink the recommended amount of fresh Kangen water, it will also help the body to be health and acne will not be a problem.

Cuts and Scrapes - Anytime the skin has been torn, Dr. Dave Carpenter recommends spraying with the 2.5 pH Strong Acidic water at least once per day. This will help the immune system to get rid of any bacteria, viruses, etc. which cause infection. Then soak the area for at least 3 minutes in Beauty water and allow it to air dry. This helps tighten the pores in the tissue and takes away the pain.

Moles, warts, age spots, etc. - If you have something abnormal on your skin you may want to try using the 2.5 pH Strong Acidic Water on this to see what it will do. In most cases, the easiest way is to soak a gauze pad on a band aide with the water and then apply to the area. Change the bandage at least once a day. Most people have reported that they've had to continue the process for 30-60 days before seeing results.

Kangen Water for Health

I am heading up stairs from the office now to get some more water. How are you doing on drinking your water today?

Summer is upon us!

Here in Austin Texas it is now well into the 90s every day. That hot sun and outdoor activities result in dehydration. Once dehydrated the body can no longer regulate temperature, and this is dangerous. Many people become ill from Heat Stroke and heat exhaustion. I have experienced these symptoms as a kid a summer camp, wow not good.

So be sure to drink plenty of fluids. We of course as always suggest Kangen water. Keep hydrated and stay out of the direct sun if possible.

We can always tell a neighbor who moved here from up north, they will be out at noon working hard to keep the yard pretty and by 1:30 they are sitting on porch, puffing and weasing. Yes the heat here in Texas is more than most people can take... ...complete outdoor activities early in the day and then it is siesta time!

If you would like more information on Kangen water we have a demo every Tuesday evening, drop me a line and let me know.

Would you like to see a specific article covered here? Next time athletic performance, see you then!

Nutrition Facts it is all about the water

Nutrition Facts it is all about the water
Water it is all about the Kangen water!

For More Information

Physiological Functions: Water is widely known as an essential nutrient because it must be consumed from external sources to meet our body’s metabolic demand, and requirements. Water constitutes approximately 60%to 75% of adult total body weight.

Water is a catalyst for or involved in most all of the body’s enzymatic reactions including all of those involved in nutrient digestion, absorption, transport, and metabolism.

It is also required for facilitating removal of metabolic waste by the kidneys. Inadequate intake of water compromises, and then damages cell functions by contributing electrolyte imbalances, contraction of plasma volume (reduction of blood), and finally and sometimes fatally the bodies inability to regulate body temperature.
Factors Affecting Availability Water is not consumed in sufficient amounts by most individuals since thirst does not develop until body fluids are depleted well below levels required for optimal functioning.

Many people wait till thirst to drink Kangen water...

This thirst signal is suppressed with prolonged dehydration. It is known that persons who are more hydrated sense thirst more readily. These processes and mechanisms that cause the thirst sensations are stimulated by increased transfer or decreased extracellular volume which is not detected until significant contraction of plasma volume has occurred. A person experiencing blood volume contraction maybe at risk for additional damage and illness.

Groups most vulnerable to dehydration, infants, elderly adults, and athletes, are either not able to adequately express thirst sensations or to detect them, or have expended large volumes of liquids through exertion.

With extreme heat, advanced exercise exertion or competitive engagement resulting in excessive perspiration, thirst may lag behind actual water requirements, to the detriment of performance or health. To prevent dehydration, a minimum of eight cups of Kangen Water is suggested daily. Additional water from beverages and foods may also increase the body’s total volume.
* Citation: Mahan, L.K. and Escott-Stump, S. Krause's Food, Nutrition & Diet Therapy, 10th ed.,

Modified by Steve Barcik for MSI World Team.
Deficiency Loss of body water amounting to 10% of the body weight impairs work, athletic, and mental performance and is associated with nausea, weakness, delirium, and hyperthermia.

Signs of dehydration include poor skin turgor, skin tenting on the forehead, decreased urine output, concentrated urine, sunken eyes, dry mucous membranes in the mouth and nose, orthostatic blood pressure changes and tachycardia. Water losses exceeding 20% of body weight are extremely life-threatening.
Kangen Requirements Consumption of approximately 2.5 to 3 liters (10.4-12.5 cups daily) of Kangen water is recommended to maintain optimal hydration. Some foods and beverages can also add to the total volume of water in the body and aid to satisfy this requirement. The equivalent of 8 cups of water (64 fluid ounces or 2 liters) is the MINIMUM amount of fluid recommended daily to replace water losses under conditions of low activity, low ambient temperature, and low altitude.

Trends and how to be a part; Health, Holistic, Hydrate

How trends come and with them bring opportunity;

Marian Salzman a top trend spotter has recently been quoted as saying "watch for "H" themes; Health, Holistic, Hydrate. She asks if water should be free to all. She predicts that Hydation will be a theme of the near furture. We also agree hyrdation and being hydrated will be clear paths to health and wellenss in the near term.

Be sure you drink plenlty of pure clean hexagonal water.

Drinking Kangen water is definitely a way that you can impact your health. Purchasing a unit for your home is also a great way to impact the environment.  Eliminating bottled water, recycling and conserving water are also ways that you can impact the environment and global communities. In my search for even more ways to make a difference with clean water issues, I ran across a very profound video that I would like to share with you.  It is a documentary on Water issues called, FLOW.

Please share this blog with as many people as you can. The more people that are aware of the issues we face, the more of a difference we can ultimately make. The time is now to act.

All The Creatures of the World

I think that you would be amazed to know how plastics are impacting our oceans and animal life that lives within it.  Humans are currently a species that as a whole are unaware of the circumstances that our consumer based behavior is having on the rest of the parts of the world.

Education to raise the awareness of the global crisis is the start. 

Most of the products that we purchase today are made or packaged in plastic.  Where does this plastic go once we are done with it?  Some of it makes it to the landfills where it pile up for the next billion years (it doesn't disintegrate), while other pieces end up finding their way down sewers, to streams and river and then end up in the ocean.  Since these plastic bottles and plastic bits float, and do not sink to the bottom of the ocean, they remain in the water indefinitely.  they float and  slowly break down into very small pieces. These pieces concentrate in the oceans, through the action of the normal currents. 

In the North Pacific Guyer, an area in the ocean near the USA and Canada now covers an area 4 times the size of Texas.  Not that is huge.  It is a huge swirling trash soup with plastic bits.

And why does this matter? Some plastic floating in the ocean, what harm can that cause?

Well, what it is doing is displacing the plankton in the water.  Plankton are tiny plants and animals that form the basis of the food chain in our oceans.  There are six times more plastic in these areas than the plankton.  These little pieces of plastic are being eaten by the next little creatures, which then become starved for food and expire. 

Sea birds are picking up plastic as it mimics their food and gets stuck in their digestive tract and they die.  Larger animals are finding it harder and harder to get nourishment.  Studies on plankton eating sea mammals are now just coming out and massive impacts to plankton eating whales have just been reported.  We expect a crash in the fisheries from not just over-fishing, but from the replacement of the food chain with bits of plastic.

The oceans and its sea life are critical to the whole picture of our existence.  We all need each other for earth to be in harmony.  Here are some amazing shots of other forms of life that we share the planet with taken by Sandra Critelli while on vacation near the Yucatan Peninsula. 

"Mass Migration of Stingrays:  Looking like giant leaves floating in the sea, thousands of Golden Rays are seen here gathering off the coast of Mexico.  The spectacular scene was captured as the 
magnificent creatures made one of their biannual mass migrations to more agreeable waters. Gliding silently beneath the waves, they turned vast areas of blue water to gold off the norther 
tip of the Yucatan Peninsula.  Sandra Critelli describes the experience, "It was an unreal image, very difficult to describe.  The surface of the water was covered by warm and different shades of gold and looked like a bed of autumn leaves gently moved by the wind. 

It's hard to say how many there were, but in the range of a few thousand. We were surrounded by them without seeing the edge of the school and we could see many under the water surface too.
I feel very fortunate I was there in the right place at the right time to experience nature at its best.  Measuring up to 7ft from wing-tip, Golden rays are also more prosaically known as cow nose rays.                                                                      
They have long, pointed pectoral fins that separate into two lobes in from of their high-dommed heads and give them a cow-like appearance.  Despite having poisonous stingers, they are known to be shy and non-threatening when in large schools.  The population in the Gulf of Mexico migrates, in shcools of as many as 10,000, clockwise from western 
Florida to the Yucatan."  

I am pretty sure that you will agree that these creatures are spectacular as are many of the species in the ocean.  The time to act is NOW.  

You can make a difference by:

-Limiting the plastics that you purchase. 
-Recycling all plastics possible. 
-Eliminating the #1 contaminant - bottled water - by purchasing a Kangen Water Unit

Why Kangen Water is better!

1. Medical grade piece of equipment, not a kitchen appliance. It is
built to last with a 5 year warranty.

2. The SD501 has 17 certifications. That really speaks to the quality
of the water and of the machine. The other machines do not have these certifications.

3. The SD501 is the only machine on the market that is UL listed,
meaning that is has passed all of the government regulations and inspections.

4. Many of the competitior's machines do not cover hard water or have
use disclaimers that are in the very fine print.

5. The competitor machines do not make 2.5 pH or the 11.5, which is
used for killing E. Coli and Salmonella and used to remove herbicides and pesticides. The pH must go as low as 2.5 in order to actually kill these bacteria. Many of the competitor brands make false claims that they make the same kind of water as the Enagic machines and they do not actually make low enough acidic water to kill the bacteria. 3.0 doesn't do it.

6. Another thing that the competitors fail to mention is that some of
the machines cost $1000/plate to repair. When they are sprayed they are NOT durable and will bend and break.

7. The amount of water that the machines can produce is another huge
difference. Many of the other machines on the market, cannot produce more than 2 gallons per day.

8. The number and size of the plates matters because of surface area and the amount of anti-oxidants that are produced.

How Prescriptions are over taking Health

Our Daily Meds: How the Pharmaceutical Companies Transformed Themselves into Slick Marketing Machines and Hooked the Nation on Prescription Drugs

This is an amazing book!

"America has truly become the world’s greatest medicine show."

The book talks about how a drug effective for stopping the parasitic infection from the tsetse fly, which women and children in Africa get from fly bites while collecting water. The book mentions that the drug was not profitable for that purpose, but is very profitable removing unwanted hair from the upper lip of American women. So the drug company repurposed the drug and no it is on drug store shelves. There needs to be anew model for taking care of the world, help us find and implement that model.

The drug companies take these drugs and spin them into the best profit centers possible. Some doctors fly around the world on vacations paid for by the drug company’s money. It really is the case of the hammer being used as a screw driver. So if you are not familiar with that saying, people tend to use the tools at hand, for example using a hammer to drive a screw into to wood instead of using a screw driver. It means that if a doctor has a drug that is reported to cure facial hair, here you go. Maybe facial hair is not needing drug treatment?

How many people take drugs for simple things that can be relieved by drinking enough clean powerful water? How many people take insulin instead of losing 45 pounds of weight?

The list goes on and on. We as Americans would rather take a pill than take care of our own health. The drug companies and doctors prescribe hundreds of millions of dollars of drugs every week and never considering the true issues behind the illnesses. And us as patients tend to eat those pills right up. It is easier to take a pill than to look out for one’s self.

I say lets end this dependence on drugs, take back our health and our health care. Eat right, drink pure clean powerful water. Make healthy choices and get some good rest. Laugh, play, and smile.

Take care of yourself and always ask yourself do I really need to take this prescription or is there a healthy lifestyle alternative, then ask your doctor the same thing.

Helping the Thirsty of the World

MSI World Team is committed to getting Kangen Water into people's homes as well as healthy drinking water to the world.  

We have a huge and wonderful mission to get clean drinking water to the world which requires not only a powerful and focused intention, but also MONEY.  

It is our intention to raise over $10,000,000 for a fund over the next 3 years that provides clean water to as many people on the planet as possible.  It is happening NOW.  So far our MSI World Team leaders have been pledging a donation of $10 for every Kangen Water machine we sell and it has been awesome seeing us get closer and closer to our target goal amount. We are currently collecting funds ($5390) to implement the first well. We are accepting checks or you can now contribute using PayPal.  You can join us to make a difference.

Likewise, it has been really exciting to see just how many people are starting to open their eyes at the powerful impacts healthy water has on our health, the environment and the rest of the world.  We are quickly moving into a new paradigm shift where we are more aware of everything, from the micro (what we are putting into our bodies) to the macro (how we are affecting change in the environment and the world).

With that said, just imagine living in a village where you have to walk miles and miles a day just to get clean drinking water.  Your day starts before daylight and often women are raped, beaten, or bitten by snakes on the path just to provide water for their families.

It blows my mind to even contemplate it for a second. Now imagine having a well built in your village and having access to water any time you'd like. Wow! 

This is what MSI World Team is passionate about and this is just the beginning.  We have a vision of building not just one but many wells to provide clean water to as many people on the planet as possible and the fund that we are developing will keep this vision alive ongoingly.   

President Obama delivered a powerful and moving speech during the inauguration.  He sent a clear message: clean water for those who do not have it is a priority for him and his team. He declared "...and for the people of poor nations, we pledge to work alongside of you to make your farms flourish and let clean waters flow... ...we can no longer be indifferent to the suffering of others."

Please join our mission and help bring clean water to the thirst of the world.

Weight loss is one amazing aspect of being properly hydrated. I lost over 12 pounds the first month drinking Kangen water.

Did you know you can gain athletic performance advantages by being hydrated with Kangen water? Yes you can see a performance enhancement of 4% for every one percent increase in hydration. Imagine cutting your racing times by 4% how many more races would you win? What do spend on training, or bikes or racing fees and travel? Kangen water for pennies a day can enhance your performance. It has enhanced my athletic performance as well, it recently took second place in a competition against 17 and 18 year olds, and I am 46 years old, talk about anti-aging.

“for the people of poor nations we pledge to work alongside of you to make your farms flourish and let clean waters flow…

What an amazing day. We started it with a great team call. Then topped it off with the Inauguration of our new President. And will cap it off with a World Wealth Society call with James Ray.

What a powerful and moving speech. For everyone on MSI World Team and the WWS, he sent a clear message; clean water for those who do not have it is a priority for him and his team. President Obama said that “for the people of poor nations we pledge to work alongside of you to make your farms flourish and let clean waters flow… …we can no longer be indifferent to the suffering of others.”

This is also the priority for MSI World Team we have generated money to help with our first well, and soon we will have more information on that project, and following wells. Already people are benfiting from having clean water in thier villages.

There are 1.5 billion people worldwide who do not have direct access to clean drinking water. I am proud to be part of a team and a nation who is making a difference in this simple life giving project, clean water for those who do not have it.

Clean water for those here at home is also important. Take time to find out more how you can help and make a difference worldwide and in your own home. Call me, write me, take action now. The above quote is at 15:56 in the video.

What Doctors Are Saying About Water.

There is significant evidence to indicate that western societies are chronically dehydrated from drinking teas, soda, coffee, and sports drinks as water replacements.  I know several people that say they just don't like the taste of water and therefore they won't drink it.  They prefer the afore mentioned substitutes for water. 

With a diet full of diuretics and little or no fresh clean water intake, people do show evidence of disease and illness.  This is an area that is being studied and will become more well documented over the next year. 

Our group the MSI World Teamtm is performing a cohort study on hundreds of people to find a relationship between the intake of clean fresh water to reduction in illness.  Please also reference F. Batmanghelidj, M.D.'s books on the topic.  Your Not Sick You're Thirsty! and Your Bodies Many Cries For Water.  

Further please read Dr. Hiromi Shinya's book the Enzyme Factor, in which he recommends that his patients drink at least 1 liter of Kangen Water 30 minutes before meals, and the amazing results his diet has had for many sick patients. He explains why none of the thousands of his cancer patients following his advice over the years has had a relapse of cancer.  He shows how you can help your body cure disease that doctors have puzzled over for decades such as cancer, heart disease, obesity, fibroids, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn's disease, sleep apnea, and autoimmune disease.  

It amazes me that when the body is 75% water, the majority of doctors and scientists are still saying water intake is unimportant.  The first thing that they do with a patient when they are rushed to the emergency room is put the person on an IV to hydrate them. Why wouldn't this logic translate into the other benefits that hydration has in the body?

We need to get clear that many idiopathic disease are related to acidity and dehydration.  Idiopathic is doctor terminology for they have no idea why someone is sick. 

One doctor quotes, "In my experience, Kangentm water supercharges your nutritional program better than anything.  Water is the key and this [Enagic Kangentm Water] is the best water I know of.  Anyone who gives it an honest try will experience it in their own health, without question!" Dr. Dave Carpenter - Naturopathic Physician and Acupuncturist. Past President, Naturopathic Physicians Association - Idaho Falls, Idaho.

I hope that this will at least have you start to think about the importance that Water has to our health, longevity and well-being.  If you are interested in finding out more, check out MSI World Team and we can show you how to get the best water on the planet.

The Water Puzzle

I just finished reading one of the books off of MSI World Team's suggested reading list.

I was first introduced to the term Hexagonal Water in mid 2008.  The way it was described to me was like throwing baseballs at a chain-link fence. What happens?  Well, they bounce back. What happens if you take a handful of marbles and throw them at a chain-link fence? Obviously, they go right through. Hexagonal Water is similar in that it is a shape and size that actually penetrates the cells and hydrates.  Many other waters of different make-up just never make it into the cell and they end up going right through us, if you know what I mean. They leave us dehydrated.

I was also extremely shocked when after months of being diagnosed as "dehydrated", after one month of being on the Kangen Water, I had increased my hydration by 2%.  I never would have guessed by changing my water that I would increase the absorption of water and therefore hydration. I was thrilled to realize that some of the wrinkles around my eyes had actually disappeared.  It never really occurred to me that my dehydration was the cause of my wrinkles. It got me to thinking more about the affect that dehydration has on the body. 

Here are a few excerpts from chapters in : The Water Puzzle

"...At the cellular level, aging causes a shift in the ratio of water inside vs. outside the cell.  The volume of water inside the cell is reduced and cells "wither" just like the skin on the outside of the body."

"...the metabolic rate has been correlated with the amount of cell water turnover in the body and both have been linked with health and aging.  When seen from this perspective, cell water turnover becomes an important marker for overall health and longevity."

"Aging is a loss of Hexagonal Water from organs, tissues and cells, and an overall decrease in total body water.  Since aging is associated with the loss of Hexagonal Water from the body, it has been suggested that consuming Hexagonal Water results in a general slowing of the aging process. Several studies support this premise."

"In our experience, we have found that when individuals consume Hexagonal Water, the cellular water environment improves, contributing to increased health."

"Even though the source of the water we drink is important, the structure of that water is the key.  the best water for human consumption is Hexagonal Water.  this water is characterized by a small cluster size (verified using NMR technology) which penetrates the cells much faster (verified with Bio Impedance testing), supplying nutrients and oxygen more efficiently that unstructured water."

"Even our scientists, biologist and doctors have studied everything in water, without considering that the water itself and the structure of the water may be playing an equally, important role.  going forward, we have the opportunity to look at the whole picture and come to a more complete understanding of the relationship between water and life."

This is an excellent book for understanding more about Hexagonal Water and the important role that it plays in hydration and slowing the aging process. 


Hello and Welcome to our Kangen Water Blog.

For me Kangen water has been a great find, I have lost weight, increased stamina, and athletic ability, and improved my health. All this was accomplished while reducing the over the counter medications I had been taking on a regular basis. Health is truly related to hydration and drinking Kangen water has made great improvements for me in hydration. I hope you are having an amazing New Year. I will be back again soon.
