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.

Beauty Water Uses

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.

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!

What is Kangen Water?

Kangen, which means “return to origin” is delicious water created from Enagic’s innovative water technology. Not only do these devices filter your tap water, but they also produce alkaline and acidic waters through electrolysis. These waters can be used for various purposes, including drinking, cooking, cleaning, and beauty.

Enagic’s water-filtration system removes harmful chemicals from tap water, while keeping the helpful minerals, such as calcium, sodium, potassium, and magnesium intact. The ionization process electrolyzes the water which allows the water to be absorbed quickly while supersaturating every cell with alkalinity and high anti-oxidation.

Each Kangen machine consists of thick medical grade titanium electrode plates that are dipped in pure platinum. These plates are located in the electrolysis chamber and run the water through a process called electrolysis, which breaks the water up into ionized alkaline water and acidic water.electrolysis-of-kangen-water

The Kangen water machine produces 5 different types of water:

Strong Alkaline (11.5pH) for cleaning, washing clothing, stain removal, degreasing, removing chemicals from produce, and more.

Kangen Drinking Water (8.5pH, 9.0pH, 9.5pH) for drinking, food preparation and more.

Clean/Neutral Water (7.0pH) for taking medication and making baby formula.

Beauty Water (6.0pH) for skin, hair and more.

Strong Acidic (2.5pH) for sanitizing, killing bacteria and germs off produce, mouthwash, and more.
