A Letter to Network Marketers

Dear Network Marketer,

Take your business opportunity elsewhere. We don’t need it.

Most of us have been approached by one of you at some point or another. You were a friend. A relative. You were passionate about a company you had joined and wanted to share the business opportunity with us. But why? It’s as though you think we’re somehow unsatisfied with our current situation or job. As though we want something “more.” But what’s wrong with the 9-5? It is only 8 hours after all. And even when it’s more, the time usually goes by quickly. Besides, the work we’re doing in those 40 hour weeks are fulfilling. It’s not like we’ve given you any reason to believe we’re living for the weekends and hate Mondays.

And then it’s like you think we could possibly use more money than what our job pays us. I don’t hear anyone complaining about their wage or that there’s too much month left over at the end of their money. Most people are financially stable. Most people are not in debt with credit cards & loans, etc. We don’t need the extra money. But thanks!

too much month left

And another thing! You’re always talking about “time freedom.” Why is “time” so important to you anyway? Last time we checked, we spend plenty of time with our families on evenings and weekends. Not to mention we get 2 weeks of holidays every year!

time freedom2.jpg

And don’t get me started on retiring early! Who would want to retire before age 65 anyway? What would we do with all that time? Travel the world? Most people don’t want to do that after they’ve just finished working 50+ years. They want to relax!

time freedom.jpg

So thanks Network Marketers, but we’re not interested! Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure there’s a small percentage of the population who actually desire these things. Go out and look for them! Look for the folks who are sick of their 9-5 jobs; who want more money; who want to spend more time with their families and doing the things they enjoy. Offer your opportunity to the people who like the idea of residual income and making money in their sleep; to the people who want to retire early and dream of traveling the world. Look for these types of people. But good luck! They’re not going to be easy to find.

Healing Waters? – The History of Electrolyzed Reduced Water

glacial water

Water is the basis of ALL life. Essentially, we are water. It makes up to 80% of the human body. Without it, life does not exist. However, not all water is the same. Certain waters nourish the body perfectly, promoting continuous cell rejuvenation and optimum health.

Around the world, “healing waters” exist in unique locations. In these places, people live longer, healthier lives. In the 1930’s, Nobel Prize winner, Dr. Henri Coanda studied the Hunza people of the Himalayans who have the longest lifespan in the world and live exceptionally healthy lives, free from disease. Hunza people routinely live to 120-140 years in good health with virtually no cancer, degenerative disease, dental caries or bone decay. Hunza people remain robust and strong and are able to bear children into old age. Research proves conclusively that the local water supply is the primary causal factor of the healthy, long-living Hunza people. Special properties in the Hunza waters contribute to the population’s longevity. The high alkaline pH, active hydrogen and negative oxygen-reduction potential (anti-oxidant) create the perfect natural water. Healing waters flowing in other locations such as Lordes, France; Nordenau, Germany; Tlacote, Mexico; and Delhi, India share the same properties.

Since it’s not possible for the entire world to drink from these glacial conditions, scientists researched other methods to produce this quality of water. Researchers found through the process of electrolysis, ordinary tap water can be restructured to mimic nature’s healing waters. Japan created the first commercial ionizer in 1958. At first, only hospitals utilized these units and in 1966, the Health and Rehabilitation Ministry of the Japanese Government acknowledged the water ionizer as a legitimate medical device for improving human health. Today, Japan’s hospitals and doctors use ionizers as a primary source of preventative medicine. The demand for this water inspired the creation of
Enagic’s Kangen Water in-home units, which utilize the same technology as the large hospitals ionizers. Today, people around the world can benefit from having a Kangen Water Ionizer in their home and drink alkaline, hydrogen rich water every day.

What Kind Of Water Are You Drinking? And Why It Matters.

woman drinking water 2

I remember when I first visited Chile as a child with my family, my dad made it very clear not to drink water from the tap. My sweet abuela nearly smacked a glass out of my brother’s hands after leaping across the kitchen heroically (okay, I’m exaggerating, but you get the picture). Then when I visited Cuba with friends, we were strongly advised to always order bottled water. Never drink from the restaurant water pitcher. Don’t even so much as ask for ice. We were committed to not getting sick during our lengthy 5 day stay so we followed that advice.

We’re not quite so paranoid about drinking tap water here in Canada. It is known to be much safer than other parts of the world. When developed countries like the US, Japan and England installed water and sanitation systems, they eradicated many diseases, thus saving millions of lives. I’m very thankful for that. But just because our water is considered “safer” doesn’t mean it’s completely “safe”.

Tap Water, as most of us are aware, is contaminated with pollutants, chemicals, heavy metals, pharmaceutical drugs, etc. and additives such as chlorine and fluoride. The Environmental Working Group stated that in between 2004 and 2009, water suppliers across the U.S detected 316 contaminants in water supplied to the public.  For most, the government has set no safety-based legal limits. Many other contaminants were found in drinking water at concentrations above government-issued advisory health guidelines. Well that’s alarming! It’s no wonder we invest in home water filtration systems and stock up on bottled water! Speaking of home water filtration systems and bottled water… let’s talk.

Reverse Osmosis is a water purification system where the water is demineralized by pushing it under pressure through a semi-permeable Reverse Osmosis Membrane.  Although it effectively removes many impurities in the water, it also removes all naturally occurring minerals. This method of filtration poses some serious health risks and concerns. Demineralised water is highly aggressive and leaches metals and other materials from the pipes and associated plumbing materials. As well, it leaches minerals, such as calcium and magnesium in prepared foods and increases the elimination of sodium, potassium, chloride, calcium and magnesium ions from the body. Furthermore, water low in minerals, specifically calcium and magnesium, may be associated with sudden death, higher risk of fracture in children, certain neurodegenerative diseases, pre-term birth and low weight at birth, pregnancy disorders, and some cancers.

Bottled Water is demineralised, or distilled water and is usually filtered through Reverse Osmosis, however some bottled water companies add in minerals after the fact. In many cases, it is simply municipal water bottled up and sold for often a thousand fold increase in price. While tap water costs about $.004 a gallon, bottled water costs $1.22 and upwards to over $8 a gallon. It has one of the biggest markups. Even gasoline costs less than bottled water. And I hear people complain about gas prices all the time.

Not only is bottled water expensive and lacking all naturally occurring minerals, but chemicals from the plastic leach into the water.

3 hazards commonly found in plastic water bottles are:

Bisphenol A (BPA) – has been found to adversely affect the endocrine and reproductive systems and to increase the risk of breast, prostate, ovarian, and brain cancer. It also increases the occurrence of hyperactivity, attention deficit disorder, aggressive behavior, and asthma.
Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) – contains contaminants of fecal matter, saliva, and
food residues in the plastic.
Phthalates – causes liver cancer, testicular atrophy, and sterility in males.

Bottled water is also terribly environmentally unfriendly. Over 60 million water bottles are thrown away each day in the United States alone and only a small percentage can be recycled.

But wait…there’s more. And this is the part you don’t often hear.

Bottled water is acidic and has a positive Oxidation Reduction Potential, which means it’s oxidizing to our bodies. On the pH scale bottled water typically ranges from about a 4.5-6.0. If you’re not familiar with the pH scale, it is short for “Potential Hydrogen.” 7.0 is considered neutral, anything below is acidic and anything above is alkaline. Tap water is kept at a neutral pH because if it were acidic it would rust the pipes. So what does that say about our bodies?

Too much acidity in the body can lead to a state of acidosis where all kinds of sickness and disease occur. And oxidative stress is widely accepted as one of the causes of most life-style related diseases, cancer and the aging process. So why again are we drinking bottled water?
(FYI: this includes vitamin water as well)

I know what you’re thinking. Okay Natalia, after sharing all this terrifying information on tap and bottled water, I bet you’re going to give us the perfect solution now.

Well since you want to know, I can tell you what I did. I invested in a Kangen Water System. This system produces Electrolyzed Reduced Water (ERW) through electrolysis. Let me tell you what properties Electrolyzed Reduced Water has and we can compare it to purified bottled water.

1.) ERW is rich in naturally occurring minerals. In fact, this system NEEDS minerals to effectively ionize the water.
2.) ERW exhibits an alkaline pH naturally, without additives, unlike most alkaline bottled water.
3.) ERW is rich in molecular hydrogen. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s only the most powerful antioxidant known to mankind (this time I’m not exaggerating). Not only does it have effects against oxidative stress, but also anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic and anti-obesity benefits and with no side effects! You drink one glass of this water and it would be like drinking the antioxidants of more than 2 lbs of blueberries, except better! Why is it better? Because unlike most antioxidants, molecular hydrogen has the capability to act at the cellular level and can even pass through the blood brain barrier.

If you want to learn more about Molecular Hydrogen, here’s a great place to start: http://www.molecularhydrogenfoundation.org/

The properties of Electrolyzed Reduced Water are the complete opposite of bottled water, which is why I love it! We’ve always been told to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. Imagine if this water was the 8 glasses you and your loved ones were consuming every day.  Along with eating wholesome foods, in my opinion, this is about the best preventative measure we can take for our family’s health.

Although this is a water ionizer and not a filtration system, it does filter out chlorine. For a pre-filtration system, Enagic has you covered, or you could go with the home filtration system of your choosing. As long as it doesn’t remove the naturally occurring minerals from the water, the Kangen Water System will partner greatly with it.

Baby Having Bath At Home

If you haven’t yet considered a chlorine filter for your shower, now might be a good time. Since purchasing the Anespa Mineral Ion Water Spa, I no longer have to be concerned about bathing my baby in chlorine.


If you have any questions or would like to purchase a Kangen Water System, I am here to help.

Beauty Water Uses

kangen uses photo

Beauty Water is another type of water that can be produced by the Kangen Ionizer. With a slightly acidic pH of 4.0-6.0, this water is recognized for its astringent effects. It is terrific for gentle cleaning and of course, beauty care.

The skin is one of our body’s first lines of defense. It is slightly acidic with a pH of around 5.5, which is necessary to protect us against pathogens that contribute to aging and irritation. Unfortunately, majority of soaps are alkaline with a pH within the range of 9-10 (majority of shampoos are in the range of 6-7) and directly affect the pH of the skin. The increase of the skin pH irritates the skin’s protective layer, also referred to as the “acid mantle.” This results in the pathogenesis of skin diseases like irritant contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, ichthyosis, acne vulgaris, and candida albicans infections.

It’s for this reason that applying toner has been recommended as a part of the skin care routine. The role of toner is to balance out the skin’s pH level. Although there are some wonderful natural alternatives to toner, the majority of commercial toners are jam packed with harmful chemicals, just like the rest of beauty products.

Beauty water has the perfect pH range to care for skin. It can be used as a facial cleanser as well as a toner. Simply fill a spray bottle and spray a mist onto your skin after showering and leave it to dry. The astringent properties are effective in toning and firming your skin.

Not only is beauty water great for skin but for hair as well. Spray your hair after showering in replace of conditioner to reduce tangles and bring out a radiant shine.

Here are some other uses for Beauty Water:

Boiling pasta – Boils pasta to an “al dente” consistency. *Use Kangen Water for boiling thicker types of pasta.

Cooking beans – Various types of beans such as kidney beans and green peas, will cook to perfection. Since using acidic water will speed up cooking time, take care not to overcook.

In batter for fried foods – Fried foods will turn out nice and crispy, not oily, even when left to sit for an extended period of time.

Boiling eggs – Even if the egg cracks during cooking, the egg yolk will not leak out of the shell into the water. You will also find the eggshells peel off very easily.

Frozen foods – Spray foods with acidic water when freezing so that the food, including fish and shrimp, do not lose their flavor when thawed.

Removing tannin from tea cups and cleaning burnt pots and pans – To remove stains, grime and grease, leave to soak in water for 24 hours.

Washing dishes – Dishes and glasses will come out sparkling clean.

Polishing – Polish mirrors, eyeglasses, glass objects and windows, as well as knife sharpeners, to a high sheen.

Housecleaning – Remove dirt from hardwood floors, ceramic tiles, etc., without having a sticky residue.

Add to bath water – Add acidic water to your bath water to keep your tub free of bathtub rings. Bathing in this water warms the body and keeps skin beautiful.

Use in the rinse cycle of your washing machine – Soaking in acidic water before the spin cycle will soften your clothes.

Pet care – Great for grooming your pet. Brush with acidic water to obtain soft and shiny fur.

Diaper Rash – Spray affected area after each diaper change to prevent and treat diaper rash.

Strong Alkaline Water Uses

I’ve talked about the many uses for Kangen’s Strong Acidic water and its powerful disinfecting properties. But that’s only one of the five different water types the Kangen ionizer can produce. Another powerful cleansing agent is the 11.5 pH Strong Alkaline water (also known as Strong Kangen water).

Here is a list of uses for Strong Kangen Water:

Put 1-2 quarts in washing machine instead of detergent. This is a great alternative for those who are sensitive to detergents. Still want the pretty scent? Just drop several drops of your favorite essential oil onto a wool dryer ball and toss it in the dryer with your clothes on a low heat setting.

If you prefer using detergent, then use a little bit with the Strong Alkaline Water. Your detergent will last longer and your clothes will be clean and bright!

Food Preparation
Strong alkaline water has the ability to emulsify oils, which makes it great for cleaning oil-based pesticides off your fruits and vegetables. Simply soak them in the 11.5 pH water for a minimum of 5 minutes (the longer the better).

*Not only is tap water ineffective in properly cleaning fruits and vegetables, but it is contaminated with chlorine which gets absorbed into our food (and skin). By cleaning your produce and meats with Kangen Water, they will be free of chlorine.

Strong Kangen water is tough on grease and grime, making it an effective degreaser for your countertops, stove tops, oven, and cutting boards, as well as for general cleaning in the kitchen.

Stain Removal
The extra strength and absorption power will remove coffee, soy sauce and oil stains. This water can also be used to remove stubborn toilet bowl stains.
*For more stubborn stains, soak overnight.

Use less dish soap when washing dishes with Strong Alkaline Water.


I will certainly be adding to this list as I learn more uses for the 11.5 pH Strong Alkaline Water. What else do you use Strong Kangen Water for?

The Kangen Water Ionizer is not only amazing for our health but can eliminate the need for household cleaners, keeping those dangerous chemicals out of our homes while saving us money.

Strong acidic water has a pH of 2.5. This water is not for drinking but has disinfecting properties. It is a proven anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-microbial for use on skin, food, plants, countertops, etc. It has been used as a disinfectant in hospitals and restaurants in Japan for many years and has been approved for disinfecting food products in the United States since 2002.

Below is a list of uses for Kangen’s strong acidic water.

-Wash produce and meats to kill bacteria
-Sanitize knives, cutting boards, dish towels, kitchen cloths, kitchen countertops, etc.
-Sanitize bathroom surfaces, door knobs, light switches, baby toys, and anywhere else where germs and bacteria are easily spread.
*For a more powerful disinfecting effect, clean with 11.5 pH strong Kangen water before using strong acidic water. Please note: after the use of Strong Acidic Water, metal that rusts easily should be wiped with a dry cloth because of the strong acidity.
-Wash hands (no need for soap)
-Disinfect toothbrushes (soak toothbrushes in a cup of water to clean them)
-Mouth wash (brush teeth and swish water around for 1 minute to kill the bacteria that causes gingivitis).
-Treat canker sores, cold sores and eye sties.
-Treat a sore throat by gargling the strong acidic water
-Treat eczema and psoriasis (spray strong acidic water on eczema periodically throughout the day)
-Treat acne (use a cotton pad to dab breakouts)
-Treat athlete’s foot (soak feet)
-Hand sanitizer (bring a travel size bottle of strong acidic with you wherever you go and spray the water on your hands to sanitize)
-Clean cuts and scrapes to prevent infection and to stop bleeding
-Remove hard water deposits on glass and ceramic surfaces
-Prevent mold from growing and eliminate some molds by spraying it a few times
-Safely bleach white clothing
-Eliminates odours

 By no means is this even the full list! What else do you use Kangen’s Strong Acidic water for?


My Personal Testimonial Using Strong Acidic Water

For several months I had a bad case of eczema spreading throughout my right hand (at least I thought it was eczema). It started with my pinky and spread to the next finger and suddenly it was all throughout my hand. My infected fingers were swollen, terribly itchy and cracking and bleeding.
I tried natural remedies first, such as coconut oil and essential oils, as these are naturally antibacterial and many people have been able to successfully treat their eczema this way. Unfortunately this didn’t work for me. I was hopeful at times, thinking that it was starting to look better, only for it to come back with a vengeance the next day.
Eventually, I decided to try “dermatologist recommended” creams, which I generally try to avoid. They wouldn’t do the trick either. So my last resort was steroid cream.
Fortunately, that tardy light bulb of mine went off and I decided to stop using soap and start washing my hands with strong acidic water instead. To partner with that, I filled a spray bottle with the 2.5 pH water and sprayed my hand periodically throughout the day. I was pleasantly surprised how quickly that stubborn rash cleared up. And without any chemicals! The 2.5 nipped it in the bud and it hasn’t come back since.

Thanks Kangen Water!

Why Did We Choose Kangen Water?


As of today, we have enjoyed our Kangen Water Ionizer for over a year and the question, “why did we buy a water ionizer” has arisen. “Why did we choose Kangen water”? While our first blog “What is Kangen Water” could sum up the reasons quite well, I’d like to answer on a more personal level.

If I could be honest for a moment, “we” didn’t choose Kangen water. Kangen water chose us. Kidding! My husband chose Kangen water. I, on the other hand was reluctant.  Upon seeing the price, I said things like, “Do we really need this? Can’t we just drink lemon water?” But my husband was adamant that this would be beneficial to his family’s health. And today, I am so thankful that he made this decision for us.

Now, I wouldn’t say that I’m “cheap.” I firmly believe in the importance of investing in my health and being preventative. However, the thing is (and here is where I think many people can relate) I grew up in a single parent home where money was tight, each purchase was made with caution, and getting a “good deal” was of upmost importance. So naturally, as I grew older, high price tags made me nervous. But I’m beginning to learn that you get what you pay for and there are some things that I’m not willing to gamble with, such as my health and the health of my family.

After much research, we came to the conclusion that Enagic’s Kangen Water Ionizer is the most well-made and recommended ionizer on the market. It is extremely versatile, producing 5 different water types that can be used for our homes and our bodies, creating an all-around healthy and chemical free home! We absolutely love it.

I want to end this off by letting you know we’re here to help! Whatever questions or hesitations you may have, the odds are I have had them too, so please don’t hesitate to contact us directly. We want to help you on your journey so that you can buy with absolute confidence!
