“The optimal process for producing healthy drinking water is to use a R/O unit that has a proper filter for removing Fl. The filtered water coming out of the R/O unit should then be made alkaline and micro-clustered. These tasks can be accomplished using a unit developed by Leo Szymborski founder of pH Prescription. His unit can be fitted to your present R/O unit. He also sells R/O alkaline units. If you cannot afford a R/O unit, Leo has developed an inexpensive non-electric sink-top unit that will filter, alkalize, micro-cluster, and also remove fluoride from your water. I feel that his sink-top unit is superior to an ionizer because it alkalizes the water in a more natural way, using minerals. It also removes 90-92% of the fluoride. It does all this for hundreds of dollars, not thousands! It took Leo a few frustrating years to develop this unit, and I congratulate him.”

Three Essential Requirements for Healthy Drinking Water

There are 3 essential requirements for drinking water to be healthy. It should be 1) free of contaminants, 2) alkaline, and 3) micro-clustered. I will briefly discuss each of these.

Free of contaminants
Today water may be contaminated with dirt, rust, pesticides, petrochemicals, heavy metals, chemicals such as chlorine and fluoride, pharmaceuticals, and bacteria such as e-coli. It is important to filter these out. Reverse osmosis (R/O) filters will do this very well. Water ionizers that use electrolysis will take out some of these, but they, unfortunately, do not remove Fluoride. R/O units, however, remove the minerals in water; thus rendering the water acidic.

Our cells are designed to run at a slightly alkaline pH . When we become acidic, diseases takes hold. Remember a low pH also means lower oxygen. Cancer is a disease characterized by low pH and low oxygen. Natural water coming off glaciers has an alkaline pH. A company in Alaska sells Alaskan glacier water that has a pH of 8. Another company in Iceland, states that their glacial water has a pH of 8.8.
What makes the water alkaline? It is the natural occurring minerals. Ionizers work by using an electric charge to split water into alkaline or acidic water. The alkaline water will have more OH- than the acidic water, which will have more H+.
You may remember that, pH is really a measurement of voltage. A solution that has electrons to donate will have a (-) minus sign in front of the voltage. A solution that is an electron stealer will have a (+) plus sign in front of it. A pH of zero= +400 millivolts and a pH of 14=-400mv. Cells are designed to run on -20 to -25 mv which equals a pH of 7.35 to 7.45. Herein lies the advantage of alkaline water. Alkaline water has electrons to donate to keep our cells happy. What about water that is naturally alkaline, as opposed to artificially-induced alkaline? Naturally occurring alkaline water is alkaline due to the minerals in the water; whereas the artificially induced alkaline water has been broken down by electrolysis. It would seem that alkaline water would be beneficial regardless of the method getting there; however, my preference is usually that it is best to go with what is most natural. The body uses minerals to buffer acids, and when you are not getting enough minerals from food or water, the body will rob calcium from your bones to neutralize the acid. For this reason it is important reason not to drink distilled water.

The water molecule, H-O-H (or H2O), does not exist as a single molecule. It actually occurs in clusters. Tap water contains 11-20 molecules per cluster. Glacier water has clusters of 4-6 water molecules. Ionizers produce micro-clustered water. The smaller water clusters lead to better water absorption by the cells. These clusters have different shapes. Glacier water, for example, has a hexagonal shape. Research has shown that water immediately surrounding normal cells has a greater percentage of hexagonal-shaped water clusters, while water surrounding cancer cells has a greater percentage of pentagonal shaped clusters. Chloride, fluoride and pollutants decrease the number of hexagonal clusters. So where does all this information lead us?
