The 5 Types of Kangen Water in Mount Maunganui?

Chiropractic Mount Maunganui Tauranga Family

I’ve been writing Chiropractic blogs for over 15 years now, and have recently branched out into writing about the massive changes myself and my family have noticed by drinking Kangen water. This is important because I truly believe that the more families that live a healthy and holistic lifestyle (be it through Chiropractic or drinking Kangen water, or both!), the bigger the benefit to the community in general.

The 5 Types of Kagen Water in Mount Maunganui

Today I’m going to write how our family got into drinking Kangen water in Mount Maunganui and how we won’t be turning to anything else for our hydration needs moving forward. And I mention that because this water is freely available to you to sample if you are interesting in finding out what it will do for your health. I think a lot of you will experience a huge benefit.

Years ago my family stopped drinking tap water being convinced that it is not a health food. (Water is the second most important nutrient in my opinion, after air and before food.) When you look at how long the water sits in the plastic bottle, and the amount of damage the packaging does to the environment, we decided as a family that it simply wasn’t something we wanted to continue doing. We bought a distilled water machine and used it for years even though it was a bunch of work cleaning it. (But media coverage of how the Government simply lowered the standards on water quality when they had a hard time finding waters that met currant standards helped make us feel good about the decision. More recent coverage of how the medications – and many other things – flushed down toilets ends up in drinking water reinforces our concerns about drinking tap water. Bottle water isn’t much better and as mentioned it’s a disaster for the environment.)

So why would we buy a “Kangen” water machine?

pH is a big deal. The acidity and alkalinity of the water, and what we put into our bodies is extremely important. You can’t help but hear all about it in the media these days and the list of reasons it is important to keep your bodies internal environment alkaline is long and compelling. And… all the water we have been drinking all these years is either acidic (tap, bottled, etc.) or neutral (distilled).

Lots of things shift the bodies pH toward the acidic side. In particular a lot of exercise will do it. So will dietary choices. And dietary choices are supposed to be one of the ways to correct the situation and get the body more alkaline. But guess what? It’s pretty difficult to eat enough ripe but fresh, raw fruits and vegetables to keep the body alkaline. I have kept Litmus paper strips around the bathroom and office for a couple of years tracking mine so I know how hard it is for me.

It was the 9.5 pH “Kangen” drinking water that compelled me to get the machine. It makes keeping the body alkaline extremely easy. But there are other important characteristics of the water that impact health and wellness.

Another important feature of the Kangen water machine relates to the “micro-clusters” and Himalayan glacier water. I never did understand what the importance of this was when it was explained to me…but it turns out that water molecules in “clusters” of 4, 5, or 6 may have some sort of magical quality. It is easy to understand that these smaller clusters of molecules will be able to get into and out of the bodies cells easier than the typical clusters of over 20 molecules. Ultimately this means quicker, better, and higher quality hydration (or acceptance by the body)
This ability to get into and out of cells relates to hydration of cell (a big deal), but it also relates to nutrients getting into cells and waste getting out (think detoxification).

The third characteristic of Kangen water which I may have heard about but didn’t keep uppermost is the ORP or Oxidation Reduction Potential. This simply means that the water is a very powerful anti-oxidant. Anti-oxidants counteract the effects of free radical damage or what is nowadays called Oxidative Stress. Again, exercise produces a lot of Oxidative Stress. So do a lot of other things like stress and the Standard American Diet (S.A.D.). Since the water is an extremely potent anti-oxidant, simply drinking this water regularly will be a massive benefit for the brain, nervous system, and body.

Inflammation in the body is helped both by increasing the pH to a more alkaline state and by having a favorable ORP value (it’s tricky but a negative ORP is good, positive is bad).
As always, there will be opportunities to learn more about the Kangen Water if you are interested. Feel free to ask when you are in the office.

We are starting to see more and more people asking about the water or contacting us to sample it for a few days.
