When you’ve watched this, you’ll probably be eager to get more ‘HOW TO’ facts about the best way to use molecular hydrogen from Cassie and Ian here.
I just read an article in Time by Dr Makary of Johns Hopkins Hospital. He is commenting (after many, many years of cancer work) – on what it costing us to chase cancer. He cited a man who came to see him.
“The patient’s story began with a full-body CT scan – a screening used to detect tumors – that revealed a cyst on his pancreas. Some 3% of people have these cysts and they are rarely problematic. Based on the cyst’s size and features there was no clear answer as to what to do about it, but he was given options. [sociallocker id=”16735″] The patient tossed and turned at night, agonising over stories of pancreatic cancer tragedies, consumed by the dilemma of whether to risk surgery to remove the cyst or leave it alone. The conundrum strained his marriage and distracted him from his work. Months before I met him, the patient underwent the surgery, which revealed that the cyst was no threat to his health. The operation was supposed to cost $25,00 and require 8 weeks ff his work. But the toll was much greater, with a debilitating surgical complication.” I thought, This is why he shouldn’t have had a CT scan in the first place. Screening made him sick.” Now we’re beginning to see research pinpointing the fact that screening has over-reached itself. One such study showed annual mammograms did not prolong the lives of low risk women aged 40-59. The study followed 89,000 people over 25 years so it was in study terms, solid gold. Here’s another example of excessive health protection. We’ve all heard of the idea of a daily aspirin as some sort of overall heart health support. Well, think again. Another study found that it can cause significant gastro-intestinal or cerebral bleeding. Sure, your heart is still beating but either your stomach or your brain is in a bad way.
Prostate tests are another case of alleged over servicing. I submitted to two colposcopies because I was told I was ‘at risk’. Questioning my surgeon, I was having a real problem seeing exactly why i had the procedure.
How big is the problem of overservicing? Well, The Dept of Health and Human Resources in the US attributes 180,000 deaths a year to Medicare patients alone. If we look at it as unintentional harm, it’s the #3 cause of death in the US! Dr Makery was prompted to write his article for another reason. he was deeply disturbed by the emotional trauma he saw this particular patent suffer. The patient didn’t just suffer from ‘normal’ fear of cancer. he also suffered from fear of a technology that could not deliver a succinct diagnosis without invasive surgery. For me, I heartily concur with the good doctor, but I prefer to look at what I can do for myself and my loved ones in my hopefully ‘pre-cancer’ state. I would naturally prefer to not be another number in the mass statistic of people being ‘processed’ through a huge medical system that seems hypnotised by the promise of a technological answer rather than a preventative approach.
A doctor once told me that we all have cancer. it’s just that it hasn’t received the requisite signals to rampantly develop within our bodies. If that is so then avoiding the idea of cancer seems to me to be a form of selective blindness. If I do have cancer somewhere in my body in a latent form, then I can, especially now with the vast support of the internet, educate myself with everything I need to keep my cancer happily slumbering within.
What do I do? I eat good organic food. I eat greens as much as possible. I drink hydrogen rich alkaline water. I exercise to keep my life systems active. I meditate. How about you? What’s your ‘cancer support’ strategy?[/sociallocker]
Bottled Water versus owning your own UltraStream Alkaline Water Ioniser
Author Diana Michaels is one of our many Alkaway distributors, way down in Busselton, Western Australia .
Ian: Diana, thank you so much for this!
The cost of 15 litres of bottled water delivered to your home is about $19.95. A commercial price could be as low as $13.00 per 15 litres. Note that the costs used in this comparison for the bottled water were actual costs quoted by one of the largest distributors in Australia for the supply of water to a medium size corporate business earlier this year, 2014.
The cost to a business who used 1 x 15 litre of spring water weekly at a cost of $13.00 per 15 litre with a fortnightly delivery would be:
At $13.00 per week for only one 15 litre bottle the annual cost would be $676.00 – (780 litres of water per annum) . The cost of the UltraStream replacement filter cartridge is $199.00 and it produces 3000 litres of alkaline and ionised water.
Both the chilled water dispenser and the UltraStream unit cost to initially purchase – the water dispenser is approximately $200 the UltraStream is $499 (and for a commercial application an undersink kit is recommended which is $175). If no power source is available that would need to be installed for the water dispenser but not required for the UltraStream. The UltraStream does not require a plumber to install the Unit it can he installed by anyone who is handy;
The cost in the first year of the chilled water dispenser (buying only 1 x 15 litre bottle delivered fortnightly) is $676 for the water; approximately $200 for the dispenser; an additional cost of $1.25 fuel levy per delivery ($1.25 x 26 fortnights) adds 32.50; and in some cases the cost of installing a powerpoin and some power consumption – amounts to an estimated $908.50;
The cost in the first year of the UltraStream plus the undersink kit and a replacement filter is $499 for the UltraStream; $175 for the undersink kit; and $199 for the replacement filter (this is for next years 3000 litres of water); – this amounts to $873.00;
The cost in the second year of the chilled water dispenser with exactly the same usage (assuming that there has not been a price rise) is $676 for (780 litres of water) plus $32.50 for the fuel levy and some power consumption – amounting to around $708.50;
The cost of the second year of the UltraStream is $199.00 for the replacement filter (which you already purchased in your UltraStream Startup Kit). If you buy a replacement filter in the second year you will always have one on hand;
Subsequent years (assuming no increase in price) the bottled water will cost at least $708.50 plus power and the UltraStream will cost $199.00 for the replacement filter, plus a small amount for shipping;
UltraSteam wins hands down!

Just letting my friends know.. Cassie and I are off to Japan on Thursday talking to people interested in selling our UltraStream over there. It’s exciting because Japan is the home of the modern electric water ionizer, so I have a sort of ‘ice to the Eskimos’ feeling about it. We are also looking at new technologies in Japan and expect to be bringing back at least one new product for you. Japan was the home of the electric water ionizer, but that’s old news. Now it’s the home of molecular hydrogen delivery systems in all sorts of ways, so given that the UltraStream has been tested and shown that at normal flow, it’s ‘world champion’ molecular hydrogen producer. We were offered an upgrade on our Tokyo hotel today and we took it. It was for a longer bed. I didn’t realise that many hotels in Japan have beds made for the average Japanese size person. I’ll be posting from Tokyo so stay tuned. Looking forward to: 1. Food. 2. Food. 3. Ginza 4. Big bed.
Wonderful. For years I’ve been thinking ‘dogs alkaline, cats acid’ meaning that although dogs like our water, cat5s don’t. Well, Dave Bryant, our happy UltraStream customer, sent this pic to prove me wrong. Dave wrote: “Our cat (see pic attached) is quite old and isn’t well. Though she would appear quite old and weak, she insists on jumping from the floor to the couch, to the bench, over the gas cook top, across the table, to the overflow water tub situated under our Alkalizer. She (Bazz) will not drink from the dogs bowl or her own water bowl, instead she will go to great lengths to drink Alkalized Water. Maybe there is more to this Water than has been tested, and maybe Bazz can sense there is goodness, even for a Cat! Thought you would like the good news!” Ian: Thank you Dave! You’re a belief buster!
John was quite tardy with sending us this message because he wanted to be sure of what he was saying. He’s 80 years old and ‘on the ball’.
“I have been suffering from high sugar levels for several years.
Since installing my new advanced Alkaway UltraStream filter my sugar levels have dropped by 30% together with my medication.What I have noticed is my desire for ‘sugar’ laced products,such as chocolates,cakes,biscuits etc; has ceased absolutely which ,obviously has been instrumental in the reduced sugar levels in my system.I am now enjoying better health overall thanks to Ultra Stream.A very grateful customer.” John, Gold Coast.
Has anyone else noticed how the price of humble kale is going up? Bad, perhaps for you and I – the alkalizing consumer – but good for the population in general because it tells us more people are eating it and prepared to pay for the privilege. There are so many ways to eat kale, most of them bad, but I think it is best in a juice. Deep green.
“I can spot an acid body across a room,” says Lindsey Duncan, a naturopathic doctor who has helped remold the bodies of Marc Jacobs, Demi Moore, and Miami Dolphin Reggie Bush. “The hair and the skin are dried out, the skin pores are too large, and everything is starting to age prematurely.” Read More
For as long as I have been working with alkaline water there has been a debate over its effect on stomach acid. Sang Whang’s theory seems to be the strongest unproven theory; that high pH water actually stimulates the stomach to produce more acid, thus keeping the vascular supply system in good working order. This from biochemist and alkaline water researcher Tyler Lebaron adds more fuel to the fire, as well as answering a common question: “Why can i drink this water and not experience bloating like I do with tap water?’ “Gastric emptying (water going from stomach to intestines) is partly a function of pH. Because the water has a high pH it speeds up gastric emptying and thus many people do not experience bloating or sloshing of water and are able to drink a significant amount at one time”. Tyler’s Facebook page is called Hydrogen Water and is an essential read for poeple seriously researching alkaline philosophy.
New research from the Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia has defined the best cure for a hangover. It’s not surprising; coffee and aspirin. The caffeine in the coffee and the anti-inflammatory effects of aspirin react against ethanol, the demon drink’s actual demon. The study found that it’s the ethanol that brings on the headache because it produces acetate (yes, that clear plastic sheeting stuff!). When researchers induced headaches in rats using ethanol, then fed the lil’ critters caffeine and anti-inflammatories, they found it blocked the acetate production and relieved the headaches. So we can relieve the effects of a drug – liquor – with a couple of ‘lesser’ drugs. When we discovered alkaline antioxidant water, one of the things that attracted us was the claim that it was an excellent hangover cure. Twelve years later we still don’t know if it’s true – probably because we haven’t gotten drunk enough. My last hangover at age something less than 30 lated 3 days and I never got drunk since. Do we have any volunteers out there? Perhaps your Christmas dinner?
That glass of water treated by reverse osmosis (RO) water purifier in your home is certainly keeping you healthy. But it may also be responsible for filtering out minerals that help assimilate vital nutrients and produce vitamin B-12.
No, it’s not proven. Scientific studies and researches are yet to establish this, but conjectures by physicians point a finger at the consumption ofRO water for increasingly large-scale vitamin B-12 deficiency. Vitamin B-12 deficiency can cause various health problems. Constant back pain, knee pain, fatigue, lack of concentration, loss of appetite, shortness of breath, bleeding gums and even nerve damage (in extreme cases) can be caused by deficiency of vitamin B-12. Vegetarian diet is considered as primarily responsible for the deficiency and RO water further worsens it. Apart from helping in the prevention of megaloblastic anemia, which makes people tired and weak, vitamin B-12 is also helpful to the body to keep its nerves and blood cells healthy and make DNA. It is a water-soluble vitamin. Vitamin B-12 contains the mineral cobalt. Dr Bharat Dave, honorary spine surgeon at VS Hospital and NHL Medical College, explains the reasons for blaming RO water for vitamin B-12 deficiency. “There is significant rise in vitamin B-12 deficiency. Many things can be blamed for this including, environment, increased consumption of RO water and food habits. RO water purifiers wash away minerals including iodine and vitamin B-12. This is the belief of doctors as no proper scientific study has been done to establish this. There is a three to four fold increase in the number of patients with B-12 deficiency,” he said. Dr Sanjiv Shah, director of pathology department of Sterling Hospital says, “It is my observation that number of cases of blood test for checking vitamin B-12 deficiency has increased.” Ian: My local Doc confirms the B12 deficency in his many local vegetarian clients, but few of them have a Reverse Osmosis system. I’m guessing that this is another ‘iceberg’ issue where it will become clear as more focus is given to the possible correlation. We have an excellent remineraliser and alkaliser cartridge for Reverse Osmosis users that put back the vital magnesium, calcium and potassium. Check it here.
A good video has been uploaded to Natural news by Dr Len Saputo on the hazards of water disinfection byproducts. Worth a look. And yes, in case you are wondering, he does recommend our products.. but his insight into disinfection byproducts we are all exposed to is worth a check.
When I take a moment to look at what magnesium does, it reminds me once again of the complexity and brilliance of the human body. And like all great and complex machines, it reminds me of the importance of ‘tuning’ it and giving it what it needs to carry out all those mindboggling daily tasks that support another day in our life. Magnesium is the central element in chlorophyll and the basis of early life on the planet. It’s been around for ages and I think we can safely say that it’s here to stay. Which is a good thing when you consider all of the amazing things it does for us every day: Magnesium ions manage more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body through their role as enzyme co-factors
- It’s essential in the replication and repair of DNA for new cell growth
- It’s vital in the generation and use of the energy that makes our cells function
- It’s also vital to relaxation – without it, our muscles would be in a constant state of contraction (no rest time!)
- About 2/3 is stored in our bones, where it plays two different roles – giving the bone physical strength and structure, and sticking around on the surface of the bone so it can be tapped into when things get lean.
So how do you know if you’re deficient?
It’s tricky to test for magnesium because only 1% of your body’s stores are found in the blood, and even less in blood serum, so blood testing may not detect a deficiency. If that’s the case, the following questions might help you work out if you’re at risk: 1. Do you drink lots of fizzy drinks? The average consumption of sweet fizzy drinks is more than 10 times what it was sixty years ago , and most dark-coloured carbonated drinks contain phosphates which bind with magnesium inside the digestive tract, making it unavailable to the body. 2. Do you eat a lot of sweets, pastries, cakes or desserts? Refined sugar is all take no give – not only does it take up vital energy just to be ‘managed’, it also causes the body to excrete magnesium through the kidneys. Are you stressed a lot of the time? Do you get anxious or hyperactive? Have trouble falling asleep or staying there? All of these things can be signs of low magnesium, and low magnesium can make them worse. Studies have investigated the adrenaline and cortisol hormones, which are associated with stress and anxiety, and found a link with decreased magnesium . Do you drink a lot of coffee, tea, alcohol or caffeinated ‘energy’ drinks? The kidneys play an important role in controlling magnesium levels in the body, but things like caffeine cause them to release extra magnesium regardless of whatever else is happening. Over time, this can result in magnesium deficiency. Medications for asthma and estrogen replacements, as well as diuretics and birth control pills, can also create this problem. Do you get painful muscle spasms, cramps, facial tics or eye twitches? These are well-known signs of magnesium deficiency. Remember that magnesium is required for muscle relaxation, and calcium is needed for muscle contraction. The two need to be in a state of balance to function effectively. Are you over 55? 🙄 As we age, we need more magnesium – but our diets don’t always take this into account. There are lots of delicious magnesium-rich foods you can get into including apples, apricots, avocadoes, artichokes, almonds, brazil nuts, cashews, pine nuts, pumpkin seeds, spinach, buckwheat flour, barley, green leafy vegetables, garlic, peas and beans. Bear in mind that if you take calcium supplements, it’s important to balance them with the same dose of magnesium because calcium supplementation can reduce magnesium absorption and retention if magnesium intake is low . Plus, magnesium supplementation improves the body’s use of calcium anyway. From our point of view we are very happy to be handling the new magnesium-based AlkaStream water system. It’s fundamentally different to our electronic systems that only concentrate the alkaline minerals that happen to be in the input water. If your water is low in calcium or magnesium you’ll only get what is there, concentrated in the alkaline stream. The AlkaStream, however, takes different approach. It first removes as many minerals as it can from the tap water entering it, then releases magnesium and calcium ions into the output water. In this way it’s supplying a constant level of ionized magnesium to you in every glass. For me, my self-diagnosis for possible magnesium deficiency (I’m 65 in about 2 weeks) is watching for muscle spasms andcramps. It’s been an easy method that responds quickly to a few more glasses of water. That’s my ‘manifestation of magnesium defieciency but yours may be different. take another look at the symptom list above. Magnesium, to me, is the easy life mineral, It just makes everything work better!
