Getting Started with Kangen Water

For people just starting out drinking this water, it is recommended to start with the 8.5 setting.  Drink this for a week, and if there is no gastrointestinal upset, then move up to 9.0.  Repeat for another week and if successful, then move up to 9.5 for the full alkaline benefits.  It has been observed that the most magical benefits from the water occur when someone drinks 3/4 of their body weight in ounces per day regularly so don’t be shy.. it’s quite tasty!

** When eating meals, it is best to drink the alkaline water 30 minutes before a meal and 30 minutes after the meal to not interfere with the stomach acid that is necessary for us to break down our food.  If water is desired to drink during the meal, simply drink the clean 7.0 water. 

Cleansing Symptoms

On occasion, symptoms may come up when just starting out drinking the alkaline water. This is your body releasing toxins which is a good thing! Symptoms can include: headaches, body aches, skin eruptions, loose bowels, etc.  If any come up for you, it is recommended to increase the consumption of water to aid in pushing out toxins faster to release them. If symptoms do not go away, then try to dial back on the ph level to a more comfortable setting for now.  For example, if symptoms were noticable on the 9.0 setting and didn’t get better with increased consumption, then simply go back to the 8.5 setting until they pass. 

Skin Condition Remedies

Acne, Psoriasis, Eczema, Rashes, and Burns: 

  1. Wash with high alkaline 11.5 water to get rid of excess oils on skin. 
  2. Cleanse with non soap cleanser and 6.0 mildly acidic ‘Beauty water.’
  3. Use a cotton ball or pad to dab 2.5 strong acidic water on any active blemishes or broken skin.
  4. Tone with mist of 6.0 in small glass spray bottle.
  5. Repeat morning and nighttime.
  6. Use mist throughout the day to keep skin hydrated. 

Diaper Rash:

  1. Cleanse with non soap cleanser and 6.0 mildly acidic ‘Beauty water.’
  2. Use a cotton ball or pad to dab 2.5 strong acidic water on any broken skin and let dry.
  3. Hydrate with mist of 6.0 in small glass spray bottle.
  4. Repeat after each diaper change.

Diaper rash begins with urine and feces that are very acidic. To prevent diaper rash, make sure your baby is properly hydrated with 8.5-9.5 alkaline drinking water. Replace wet wipes with a container filled with soft cloths or unbleached paper towels and 6.0 mild acidic water. Use to cleanse each area every time you do a diaper change. Pat dry and apply a light mist to the skin. This assists in keeping the ph levels balanced in the skin.

A cautionary tale for sweating:

Sweat is important for us to excrete toxins through our skin and stopping the process through the use of  antiperspiranant will cause a backlash on the lymphatic system.  If odor is of concern for you, use acidic 2.5 as a misting spray as needed throughout your day.  Keep a little travel bottle with you on more active days.
