Since the 1960ʹ′s Japanese hospitals have been using Kangen ionized alkaline and acidic waters for healing and health treatment. In fact, it was the results experienced by these patients that produced the demand for a home unit that would allow them to continue experiencing the amazing health benefits at home. Enagic machines which produce Kangen Water are the only water ionizers used in Japanese hospitals because no other machine on the market has the ability to produce the same incredible health effects.
Kangen Water is produced by the most powerful ionization process available making it not just healthy, but miraculous. This is water that affects every cell of your body, and if it does that, then it can affect our collective consciousness at a level that we may not even yet understand. People have said not only that they experienced health benefits, but changes in their conscious outlook, their emotional lives, even their sense of purpose… all in positive ways. We have a lot to learn about this incredible water, but how it works is something we do understand:
Micro-Clustering for Better Absorption
Water molecules do not remain separate. Instead, they cluster into large groups of molecules, making them somewhat difficult to absorb at a cellular level for some people. This is the leading reason why people are chronically dehydrated, even though they may be drinking sufficient amounts of water. This is a leading cause of toxicity problems in the body and the lack of proper detoxification that many people experience.
The ionization process of Kangen Water uses electrolysis to polarize the water molecules. This breaks the clustering groups into smaller or microclustered groups which allow the water to be more efficiently absorbed at a cellular level.
By fully hydrating the body, often for the first time in years, the body tissues can then be effectively cleansed on a regular basis, preventing the buildup of toxic debris and carcinogens that lead to disease. One of the most noticeable effects of this hydrating effect is on the intestinal tract. The common concept of Leaky Gut Syndrome may actually be most often a case of severe dehydration allowing cracks to form in the lining of the gut due to the drying nature of acidic foods and chemicals. A study conducted by Dr. Hiromi Shinya, the physician who developed the Colonoscopy Test used around the world today, showed that a severely compromised colon could be fully restored to health over the period of a few weeks by drinking Kangen Water .

Strong Antioxidant Properties
Every substance has the ability to affect living tissue at a molecular level. These chemical reactions can break down the integrity of cells and tissues causing them to rapidly age and even die. This process is called oxidation. These oxidative processes are natural to the body, but can also be greatly increased by the effects of stress, pollution, unhealthy foods, heavy metals, toxic exposure and even pharmaceutical drugs.
This accelerated process occurs because of the volume of positive ions or oxidants that are present in the body’s blood, organs and tissues. An antioxidants is any substance that interferes with or prevents this oxidizing process from occurring, slowing the aging process of cells and helping to protect cells from the toxic load the body sustains. For this reason antioxidants are the number one nutritional supplement sold in America today. Everyone wants to be young, and if drinking water would do that, then why wouldn’t you drink it? And just imagine if that powerful antioxidant water came right from your own kitchen tap.
Kangen Water is just that powerful. In 2002 at the meeting of the Japanese Functional Water Association, research was presented that reported that Kangen Water is effective in controlling the oxidation of lipids. Kangen Water has the strongest antioxidant potential of any beverage you can drink. Even orange juice, long revered for its antioxidant properties is far exceeded by the effects of Kangen Water. The ability of any liquid to oxidize or age living tissue can be measured. The scale that is used is called the ORP or Oxidative-Reduction Potential. If the number is positive, then the liquid does oxidize living tissue. The higher the number, the stronger that liquid can degenerate tissue and age the body. If the liquid has a negative ORP, then it is an antioxidant and helps to slow and prevent degeneration and agin. The more negative the number, the stronger its antioxidant capability. Like the water of the Hunza Valley where inhabitants have lived to be 100 to 120 years, Kangen Water has a strong and stable negative ORP, unlike bottled, tap or filtered waters.
So let’s compare Kangen Water to the average ORP of other traditional beverages:
Coke +410 ORP : strongly degenerative
Orange Juice -110 ORP : mildly antioxidant
Pepsi +450 ORP : strongly degenerative
Propel Fitness Water +280 ORP : fairly degenerative
Red Bull +462 ORP : strongly degenerative
Vitamin C -50 : mildly antioxidant
Gatorade +325 ORP : strongly degenerative
Reverse Osmosis Water +586 ORP : very strongly degenerative
Aquafina +542 ORP : very strongly degenerative
Wine +232 ORP : fairly degenerative
Green Tea -80 : mildly antioxidant
Starbucks Coffee +175 ORP : mildly degenerative
Tap Water +370 ORP : strongly degenerative
Kangen Water -250 to -950 : very strongly antioxidant
Alkalinization of the Body
The second quality of Kangen Water is its strongly akaline pH. The human body has many different pH levels throughout its tissues, fluids and systems. For instance the stomach can be as acidic as 1.2 while the blood is ideally 7.3 – 7.45. Our body contains many buffering agents and gateways to maintain proper pH in each area, however that can be very difficult with the exposure we have every day to pollutants, chemicals, toxic waste material, pharmaceutical drugs and the acidic foods that populate our plate at every meal. Our buffering systems can become overwhelmed by the volume of highly acidic substances that we expose ourselves to.
By drinking alkaline Kangen Water we are taking the strain off of these buffering systems by creating a more balanced pH making these buffering systems work much less to maintain proper pH. The truth is that the greatest cause of disease, pain, rapid aging and early death is the failure of these buffering systems to keep up with the onslaught of acidic exposure we have, and so our bodies lose their ability to maintain pH.
Alkalinization also increases fermentation, which is an essential part of our digestive process. The traditional cultures that have relied on fermentation for their livelihood, such as the Hunzas, use glacial water enabling them to have incredible fermentation results in foods, beers and vinegars. In the human body Kangen alkaline water can do the same and in this way help to rebuild the natural gut flora. This can then have a very beneficial effect on constipation issues, digestive problems and Candida.
In 1931, Dr. Otto Warburg won the nobel prize for his discovery that cancer cannot live and thrive in an alkaline environment. The more we allow our body buffering systems to be incapacitated by the volume of acidic foods, beverages, pollutants, chemicals and pharmaceuticals, the more we are paving the way for debilitating disease and rapid aging. Drinking Kangen Water can turn that around, undoing years of damage.
So just look around you at the increasing number of people suffering from acid reflux, Celiac Sprue and Candida. This is the first sign that our body’s buffering systems are compromised and weakened. Gall stones, kidney stones, bone spurs and even breast cysts are signs that dramatic shifts are occurring in our body’s pH balance and the result is precipitation of minerals into hollow organs and ducts because our bodies are not alkaline enough to maintain minerals in solution. Continue drinking acidic beverages, continue smoking cigarettes, continue eating foods with pesticide residue and now you are facing lupus, cancer and Rheumatoid Arthritis. By alkalinizing the body now, through something as simple as changing the water that you drink, you can change your future.
Kangen Water produced with the Enagic machine allows for varying levels of alkaline drinking water which can dramatically reduce over-acidification of the body and rejuvenate the normal buffering systems our body uses to protect delicate tissues and alkaline body fluids such as lymph. Water is the one fluid your cells freely accept through the process of osmosis, which allows water to move through the cell membrane without a carrier, making it the perfect medium to restore the pH balance of every tissue and every cell. By alkalinizing the body’s tissues our internal environment becomes hostile to the
presence of disease-causing bacteria, viruses and funguses. So conditions such as Candida, Lyme, Herpes and even Cancer have a much more difficult time thriving without the acidic environment they gravitate towards. This explains why vegetables, fruits and other antioxidant foods have long been believed to prevent serious illness.
The ionization process kills all pathogens and once water has been ionized with the Kangen unit, it will remain germ free. This was the secret the Roman legions understood by placing coins in their water goatskins. While riding, the coins would rub together creating an ionization process, and the water in the goatskin would remain pathogen free. This was also the idea behind throwing a coin into a well to clear tainted water. In this way, disease was minimized.
The Enagic machine can also produce Kangen Strong Acidic Water at 2.5 pH which can be applied to the surface of the skin, and has been the center of treatment at Japanese hospitals for over 30 years. Documented clinical treatments to save infected limbs from gangrene and amputation showed that the soaking and application of Strong Acidic Kangen Water over a period of days produced a marked improvement in the healing of the limb that could not be achieved with just antibiotics.
Clinical studies have for many years shown the antibacterial properties and effects of Strong Acidic and Ionized Water which has led to its use in hospitals, restaurants and food processing to prevent bacterial contamination and to preserve food safely and naturally without chemical agents. University of California conducted a study that showed that 2.5 acidic water from an Enagic Kangen Water machine killed E-Coli, Strep, MRSA, and Salmonella. At 2.5 pH no pathogen can survive, making 2.5 acidic water the benchmark for antibacterial therapy.
Used by Physicians Around the World
Kangen Water is so amazing that many doctors around the world not only have begun to advocate ionized water for their patients, but use it for themselves and their own families. Dr. Thomas Rau, owner of The Paracelsus Klinik in Switzerland and author of The Swiss Secret to Optimal Health owns an Enagic Kangen Water machine, while Dr. Hiromi Shinya, the developer of the Colonoscopy Test, has stated repeatedly his amazing results using ionized water. Dr. Ed Leshin even had a very personal experience with Kangen Water which he credits with saving his child from a pituitary tumor.
