Ionized Water, Kangen Water, Alkaline Water and the Best Water Filters: Is Water Ionization the Same for All Alkaline Water Machines?

Not all alkaline water machines are the same. Some ionized water has a higher pH with a lower ORP, which is not good. Some water ionizers can provide lower, drinking levels, of pH with very high [negative] ORP. That is very good. Some alkaline water machines require more watts to get a higher/lower range of pH [for cleaning purposes. It’s debatable whether this is good or not.]

Some water ionizers have a mineral port, and I personally appreciate this option. The Enagic Company, of course, says Kangen Water is singularly the best alkaline water machine ever. But the Enagic Kangen Water ionizer is a water ionizer, just like the other alkaline water machines. The Enagic company attempts to persuade you that Kangen Water is different than other ionized water simply because they use a different name. Kangen water is chemically the same as other alkaline water, and can be tested for pH and ORP like any other. According to my testing, Enagic Kangen Water is better than many water ionizers, but not better than the Vesta water ionizer, the Jupiter water ionizers, or the Chanson Miracle-Max and VS 70 water ionizers for getting a high ORP per unit of pH. The new Vesta water ionizer beats Enagic in every conceivable way.

The Enagic company warns their customers about the potential plate damage that could be caused by utilizing their strong-acidic-water setting too frequently or improperly. However, I don’t know of too many Enagic dealers that make mention of this fact. When the strong-acidicwater setting button is pushed, a saline solution [which also contains bleach] is released into the water. This is a caustic solution. It’s also potentially caustic to the water ionizer to use 235 watts of power. See Enagic’s warning page here.

Fake Water Ionizer Comparisons Come in Many Forms

Beware “water ionizer comparisons” that show only the highest or strongest pH/ORP for that water ionizer and/or doesn’t show you their testing. This practice can be misleading because:

1) You don’t drink at the highest alkaline level, so the ORP for that level is irrelevant. What you should really be interested in is the ORP for the pH level you will be drinking.

2) Unless the water ionizers are being compared side-by-side in the same location, at the same time, using an ORP meter that is cleaned and calibrated prior to each test, the comparisons are potentially false readings.

I am one of the only people who actually shows the extensive testing among water ionizers on YouTube. When I do this it adds to the general knowledge about various water ionizers and also shows that water ionizers perform differently in different water sources.

Another fake water ionizer comparison trick is to make claims based on saying their ionizer is the only medical device available. No water ionizers are considered medical devices in the US. The KFDA [the Korean equivalent of FDA] and the Ministry of Health of Japan both recognize all the water ionizers I sell as medically useful devices.

One, more recent trick is to make claims that ionized water is not natural, because it’s not found in nature. The claims are being made by people who want you to buy their products [usually filtering-only devices] instead. But, the idea that ionized water is somehow not natural is simply misguided. It can be tested and found to be water [two hydrogens to every oxygen]. There are normal, healthy minerals in ionized water, such as calcium. There will also be an abundance of extra electrons, which are nature’s most natural anti-oxidants. If you go and stand next to the ocean, 5 feet away, and breath the air you may feel energized by it. What is different about that air? It has an abundance of extra electrons. Electrons are negatively charged and are able to be donated to active oxygen [also called free-radicals] in the body. This instantly makes the oxygen able to be used properly by the cells of the body and prevents free-radical damage to the cells.

You will find nothing more in this water.

I don’t have anything bad to say about filtering-only alkaline water ionizer devices. I sell a few. The most popular one is my new Alkaline Plus Pitcher which can bring the pH up slightly [about 1 point higher than the source water pH, i.e. from 8.5 to 9.5 or from 7.5 to 8.5] and it delivers about -200 to -400 ORP [antioxidants] on average. I think it’s a great product, and I think everyone should buy one, even if they have a regular water ionizer, because they will be traveling sometimes and will need it. However, I don’t believe anyone can experience the full health benefits of using alkaline water when they only use a filtering-only water ionizer [also called portable water ionizer]. I use them only when I travel. The portable water ionizers work, but the electrical water ionizers work better and faster. I have tested them all and the health benefits are better with a regular [electrical] water ionizer.

I look upon a water ionizer as a tool that can be used to adjust the buffers we all need up or down as desired. After 20 years of using water ionizers for myself and my whole family, I can say that they are the single best thing I’ve ever purchased to improve my health. I am very health conscious about the products I buy, but have never found a better product to recommend to others than an alkaline water ionizer.

Why Prom Dresses are Important

Ask any girl and she will tell you that one of the most memorable day in her life was the day of her prom. Of course, people tend to remember many other days as well such as their wedding days, anniversaries or birthday, but without any doubt the prom is one of the most memorable occasion of all, especially if you just turned 18 and the whole world stands open in front of you.

Why do women want to look so beautiful on this special day? Well, the reason can be rather simple. Most (if not all) 18 year old women are not married yet, so for them their prom day is the first opportunity to look absolutely stunning. Of course, many of them dream already about their wedding day, but for most of them this day might still be many years away. This is why Prom Dresses 2016 offer them everything they have ever wanted from a prom dress. More of them can be found on

Every woman is different when it comes to their body shape and it is very important to choose a prom dress that will best suit your body. When it comes to the way women look, there are a few types here: hourglass-shaped body, apple-shaped body, pear-shaped body, or rectangle-shaped body.  For example, those ladies who have hourglass-shaped bodies will wear such clothes to accentuate their waistline. It can be really easy for a girl with this shape of body to find a dress for her as many prom dresses out there are designed for such body shapes. Those with other body shapes should give up hope yet. Apple-shaped ladies should remember not to accentuate their waistlines. This can be accomplished by not wearing clothing that is too tight for them. The same principle applies to pear-shaped bodies. For them, it is important to draw the attention away from their legs, which might be more muscular than average.

It is still many days away from prom 2016. If you would like to lose some weight to be able to fit in your dream dress, you still have an opportunity to do so. If your body is athletic and you are slim, you are lucky as you should be able to fit into any dress out there and you have nothing to worry about as there are many dresses out there that should fit your body type.



Smart Ideas to Protect Your iPhone from Scratches and Other Damage

When you first purchased your iPhone, you made a smart investment in a high quality, reputable product. So, why compromise your beautiful phone with scratches and physical damage if you can protect it instead? There are many clever ways in which you can protect your phone from all sorts of superficial and structural damage. Not only can you safeguard your phone from damage, but you can choose high quality, beautifully designed accessories to protect it as well.

Screen Protectors

One of the most effective ways to protect your phone from scratches is to use a screen protector. Screen protectors do not safeguard the entire phone, but rather, the screen only. Of course, the screen portion of a phone is very sensitive and susceptible to scratches, which is why these protectors make an excellent investment for iPhone owners. While they can only fortify the surface of your phone screen, they can also decrease the likelihood of cracking your screen as well. If you want a flawless phone screen free of unsightly scratches, then find a quality screen protector.

Phone Covers

Phone covers, especially those made of silicone, are quite effective at preventing phone damage, while allowing you to maintain a sturdy grip on your phone. Even if your phone is hurled on a hard surface, you can reduce the likelihood of damage with a quality phone cover.

iPhones comprise a very slick surface that is often difficult to grasp. Without adequate phone protection, you can risk breaking and replacing a very expensive product. Overall, these phone cases can preclude the possibility of both major phone damage and minor scratches. While they cannot protect the screen completely, these cases can shield the side and back portions of your phone perfectly.

Phone Cases

Phone cases possess many similarities with phone covers. However, they offer much more reliable phone protection than silicone phone covers alone. Cases are generally reinforced with leather or plastic and they can be customised, just like phone covers and other phone accessories. With a phone case, you can provide your phone with a study support system, while preventing scratches to some degree. This is because with a phone cases, your screen is imparted a thick and relentless layer of protection. You can find quality phone cases by visiting this link.

Phone Skins

Phone skins are one of the most popular ways to safeguard your phone from scratches. These vinyl products are removable and they can be applied directly to your phone surface. They are both lightweight and versatile, granting you the freedom to protect and customise your phone.

Shopping for Groceries

Shopping for musical accessories is usually very easy especially when you know where to do it. For a dj mixer pro I can go straight to the Internet and get whatever I want for a reasonable price. This is what I have been doing for many years when it comes to shopping and this is what I am planning to be doing for many years to come.

If there is one word that can put a smile on our faces when looking for something we need or want is the word free.

Free is free. And it saves us money.

Why pay for something when you can get it for free, or almost free.  And there are places to get things for free.

When you think about how much money we spend on things in our lifetimes, it really adds up.  How many times have you moved house and needed a new piece of furniture, or just needed to replace an old dishwasher or washing machine.  You go to price a new one and it can cost hundreds.  However, there are people looking to get rid of their old furniture and stuff, and just want it gone.  And now with the Internet, finding and accessing these people just got easier.

Web sites like Craigslist and Gumtree, have free sections on the various pages for each city or country where you may live, or want to look.

You can find everything from puppies to kittens, TV’s, stereos, magazines, coffee tables, desks, beds, cross trainer, nic nacs, clothing, I even saw one person giving away a pet monkey.

All it costs you is time to research and look on the Internet as to if what you are in need of is being offered by someone for free.  If it is a large item, like a piece of furniture someone is giving away, you may incur some costs if you need to rent a van or truck to pick the item up.  That’s still much cheaper than going out and buying something new.

Even the majority of applications for our mobile phones can be found for free.  There’s no need to buy an application as there are so many free ones available.

And what about travel?  Have you seen the recent increase in train fares.  Even public transport such as taking a bus has gone up.  There are alternatives such as ride shares and car pooling.  Not only can you get around on the cheap, you also have some company to chat with.

Other web sites that offer freebies can be found here and here and here.

Healthier Shopping for Groceries
