Personally I’m forever skeptical when it comes to products or devices that promise cures for everything from psoriasis to cancer to toe fungus. So when I was first introduced to ionized alkaline water about a year ago this was the first thing that came into my mind – just another so called “cure all” that probably isn’t bad but certainly isn’t going to make much of a difference either.
When Debbie at Reiki Wellness first purchased her alkaline water system last summer she said I could fill up my water jugs whenever I wanted to take home. I was spending probably 7 or 8 dollars on Reverse Osmosis Water, as it was, at the grocery store every week so I figured, why not? I had the mindset that “water is water”, though, so I certainly wasn’t expecting much, if anything.
For me, it was a gradual change where suddenly I noticed I didn’t have that slump in the afternoon, I was sleeping better and had fewer episodes of my IBS flare ups. Then my blood test came back and I found out I needed to cut back my Thyroid medication – I had been slowly having to INCREASE the past few years; Three months later the same thing – I needed to still go down another level!
It wasn’t until I forgot to fill up my jugs before a long weekend that I realized there was something to the water. After going back to the Reverse Osmosis Water for 1 week I found I was dragging myself through the afternoon, not sleeping well and had horrible intestinal spasms that I had almost all but forgotten about. As soon as I started back to only consuming Alkaline Ionized Water I was happy to return to my state of more energy and better overall well being.
There was no question that I needed my own alkaline water system and wouldn’t think of drinking anything other than a high grade of ionized water ever again.
