is Alkaline Water ? :
A water ionizer (also known as alkaline ionizer) is a home appliance
which claims to raise the pH of drinking water via ionization; in order
to achieve a variety of health benefits. Such claims contradict laws
of chemistry and physiology and are unfounded.
alkaline water has a higher pH level than does plain tap water, proponents
say that it can neutralize acid in your bloodstream, boost your metabolism
and help your body absorb nutrients more effectively. Some even say
that alkaline water can help prevent disease and slow the aging process.

and pH :
the 1930's, an interesting natural cancer treatment was proposed as
a simple, effective answer to cancer – almost any cancer. This
treatment approach is not well known because it is considered alternative
or experimental - or even dangerous - by the medical and scientific
community and hence has been referenced primarily in obscure publications
outside the mainstream press.
treatment approach is called alkaline therapy or pH therapy, and is
based in part on observations of cultures without significant incidence
of cancer and in part on scientific observations of and experimentation
with cellular metabolism.
principles of pH therapy are very simple. The metabolism of cancer cells
has a very narrow pH tolerance for cellular proliferation (mitosis),
which is between 6.5 and 7.5. As such, if you can interfere with cancer
cell metabolism by either lowering or raising the internal cancer cell
pH, you can theoretically stop cancer progression.
While lowering cancer cell pH (increasing acidity) is effective against
cancer cell mitosis in the lab, increasing acid levels in the live body
of a cancer patient puts stress on normal cells and causes a lot of
pain. So the proposed alkaline therapy for people is a "high pH
therapy" and has been developed to normalize the intracellular
pH of the cancer patient's body through elimination of latent acidosis,
while increasing the pH of cancer cells to a range above 7.5. According
to published research, it is at that pH they revert to a normal cellular
apoptosis cycle (programmed cell death).
this approach begins with an alkaline diet. There is general agreement
amongst natural healers and medical professionals alike, that changing
a cancer patient's diet is extremely helpful when someone is confronted
with a cancer diagnosis.
There is a chance to heal from and prevent future recurrences of cancer
using alkaline diet principles.
alkaline diet, which is primarily plant-based and avoids sugar, dairy,
wheat and other high-gluten grains as well as an excess consumption
of fruits, while emphasizing fresh vegetables and vegetable juices along
with cruciferous vegetables and greens, changes the body's intracellular
pH to come close to the ideal blood pH of 7.3/7.41- a key metabolic
accomplishment on the path to longevity whether you have cancer or not!
An alkaline diet based on vegetables and fruits create a less-than-optimal
environment for cancer proliferation, while at the same time strengthens
the immune function and supports healthy cells in the body through improved
second step is to use some nutritional mechanism to move the internal
cancer cell pH from the optimal mitosis range of pH 6.5 to 7.5, to above
8, which shortens the life of the cancer cell. As described by its proponents,
alkaline therapy neutralizes the acid waste of the cancer which causes
so much pain, interferes with the anaerobic fermentation of glucose
that starts the self-feeding acidic cancer wasting cycle called cachexia
and in time, can induce remission. If this theory of alkaline therapy
holds true, it should be possible to address cancer without chemotherapy,
radiation or surgery and use alkaline therapy as a primary cancer treatment.
bold statement comes from a somewhat abstruse body of research. In the
1880's, Louis Pasteur published his work on cellular aerobic respiration
and glycolysis. In 1931, Otto Warburg won the Nobel Prize for his work
on the metabolism of tumors and the respiration of cells, which was
later summarized in his 1956 paper, On the Origin of Cancer Cells. His
work on cancer expanded upon Pasteur's findings and described respiratory
insufficiency and a cellular metabolism of glucose fermentation as the
primary trigger for cancer progression.
conclusions on cancer were much discussed in scientific circles, as
they are academically elegant, but were not accepted by most members
of the scientific community engaged in cancer research. Most cancer
researchers in the late 1950's believed that the anaerobic metabolism
of cancer cells and their accompanying output of lactic acid was a side
effect or an adjunct effect of cancer, not a cause. Cancer research
since the 1960's has focused primarily on genetic aberrations as causative
for cancer, and has ignored the body of research on cancer pH and its
implications for therapeutic approaches.
work was a catalyst for yet another research effort on the nature of
cancer cells, beginning in the 1930's. A. Keith Brewer, PhD (physicist)
performed experiments on the relationship between energized, oxygenated
cell membrane and elemental uptake, vs. cellular membranes in an un-energized
state such as cancer cells exhibit. He wrote a number of papers discussing
the cellular mechanisms of cancer cells and the changes in metabolism
induced or indicated by the lack of or presence of oxygen in combination
with other elements, particularly potassium and calcium. He noted that
cancer cells share one characteristic no matter what type of cancer:
they have lost their pH control mechanism.
summary conclusion regarding cancer was that by changing the pH of cancer
cells to alkaline (above 7.5), they will cease to function as they need
an acidic, anaerobic environment to thrive. In other words, he proposed
that cancer cells will die if they can be pushed into an alkaline, oxygenated
Brewer's work cites areas in the world where cancer incidents are very
low. These areas contain concentrations of alkalizing minerals in the
soil and water, which are greater than in other parts of the world.
For example, the Hunza of northern Pakistan and the Hopi Indians of
the American West share both similar soil and water conditions and diet.
The alkaline elemental minerals of cesium chloride, germanium and rubidium
are heavily present in the soil and water. Ingestion of these elements
is correspondingly high. These peoples also live in similar high, dry
climates and grow apricot orchards, traditionally eating the fresh or
dried fruit and the seeds each day.
should be noted that apricot seeds are the source of the controversial
cancer treatment Laetrile or B-17/Amygdalin. Apricot seeds contain trace
amounts of cyanide, which has long been identified as a potential chemotherapeutic
agent against cancer proliferation. Other similarities in the diet include
a low consumption of dairy products, meat and wheat, as these foodstuffs
are difficult to farm in high, arid climates and a correspondingly greater
consumption of millet, buckwheat, nuts, dried fruits and berries in
their traditional diets, all of which contain a similar enhanced (though
sill minute) concentration of cyanide.
is all very interesting, but what does it really mean for cancer patients
who wish to avoid the pain of cancer and the typical course of treatment
using surgery, chemotherapy and radiation? What are the conditions that
will force cancer cells to change their pH?
chemotherapeutic agents such as Cytoxan usually cause more damage to
normal cells than to cancer cells, because cancer cells have a very
thick, unenergized cellular membrane that essentially protects them
from absorbing many drugs. Normal cells have no such protection.
cancer cells have no way to normalize their internal pH, where normal
cells are relatively unaffected by high concentrations of alkalizing
minerals. However cancer cells take up primarily two elements: glucose
practical application, then, it is necessary to find a way to guide
alkalizing elements - such as cesium, germanium or rubidium - into cancer
cells, without impacting normal cells. It turns out this can be done
using a transport agent that penetrates the bone/blood barriers, then
relying on the normal uptake of alkalizing elements that follow the
potassium pathway. Cancer cells appear to have preferential uptake of
cesium chloride in particular, but also take up germanium, rubidium,
selenium, etc. all through the potassium pathway.
is a compound that is frequently applied to the skin by arthritis sufferers
for relief of inflammation, used in brain surgery to relieve intracranial
pressure and topically used in sports medicine and veterinary medicine,
also for reducing inflammation. This compound is called DMSO and it
is formed in the slurry created from soaking wood chips in water that
is a bi-product of the paper making industry.
has it that workers in the paper making industry were observed to have
their hands in water continuously, but they never developed arthritis
and had rapidly healing skin and strong nails. Experimentation with
DMSO as a medical treatment began in the 1800's and continues to the
present day. DMSO is medically approved in the United States only for
the treatment of interstitial cystitis, a type of inflammation of the
Ash and Alkaline Water :
In our recearch which we conducted on 19 December 2014 we took
pH strips to measure the pH value in water.
Value of Tap Water
Value of Agnihotra Ash Water
we took the sample of tap water which our government gives us [Note
: The water given by Ahmedabad municipality water services as on 19
December 2014 (State : Gujarat, Country : India)] which came between
7 and 7.5 (We did not purify the water with any water purifier nor did
we boil the water).
After this we took one spoon of Agnihotra Ash and added it in one glass
of water (same tap water). We waited for some time so that the ash in
water can settle down, we took the water carefully to avoid ash as much
as we can and then we again filtered the Agnihotra Ash water and checked
its pH value. To our surprise the pH value came to Approx. 10.5.
Agnihotra Ash water :
candle water filter comes with steel and plastic body but prefer to
use steel body because plastic has many disadvantages.
This sort of candle water filter does not reduce the pH value in water
but some water purifiers reduces the pH value in water.
It is advised to check the pH value of candle filtered water because
the making of candle differs from company to company.
