Through my busy schedule of work, making time for my family and bouncing between events, losing focus on myself is way too easy, and I’m sure that many of you can relate. Keeping up with your personal health is so important to be the very best you, but I know that all too often we push ourselves to the backburner. This past year, I made the choice to focus on myself, specifically my health. I had heard about Kangen Water and the many benefits it brings to the body, so I decided to give it a try. In the 10 months I’ve been drinking it, I have felt the best I have ever felt in my life. If you haven’t heard of Kangen Water, you’re going to learn something new today.
Like all magnificent things, the Kangen Water system is very simple. Tap water is filtered first and then transformed through the Kangen system using charged plates that produce ionized alkaline and acidic waters through electrolysis. This water can be used for any and all tasks: drinking, cooking, beauty and cleaning. I use the K8 model that produces all five types of water on demand.
This form of water is one of the purest and can only be found in a dozen places around the world naturally. Ryan Parker is the person to talk to about Kangen Water, as he’s traveled to its source in Osaka, Japan, and studied it extensively and has been using it for over a decade.
“I visited Japan and the site where the manufacturing takes place. Each machine is handcrafted. I was blown away with the technology. [Japan] has considered [the Kangen system] for over 30 years now in hundreds of hospitals. [Japan] has done clinical studies on diabetes and cancer in their hospitals with the water,” Parker says. Parker has his PhD in kinesiology and sports medicine from the University of Nevada at Las Vegas, and he spent time as an assistant strength-and-conditioning coordinator in the NFL with the Cowboys and Chiefs. He has been in the health and wellness world for a long time and was ranked Top 50 Greatest Trainers by editor-in-chief of Shape magazine. Parker has seen the difference in methods and practices as technology advances and we learn new things.
“Western medicine is based on treating a symptom with a pharmaceutical drug. One of the reasons I’ve never pursued an MD is because I don’t believe in the western approach to treating a symptom with a pill. Eastern medicine, such as Japan, is the second-oldest and longest-living culture on the planet. The United States is ranked at 43 in longevity,” Parker says. “Nobel Prize-winning physician Otto Warburg determined that all cancers in his studies begin in the same place: hypoxia, which is a lack of oxygen and over-acidification. So in the east, they’ve learned to balance the body and life, and they created technology that can mimic the water that’s only found in a dozen places around the world. [Researchers] studied the water that people were claiming healed them, and they were able to find what made the water so miraculous.”
This water is honestly life-giving. I have an autoimmune disease that causes me to need procedures every so often. I thought that the autoimmune disease would run my life and I would never have control, but since I’ve been drinking Kangen Water, I haven’t had to have any procedures. Not one. I’ve received so many comments in the past year about how much healthier my skin and my hair looks, and the only major change I’ve made is incorporating Kangen Water into almost every aspect of my life. I drink the water, I use the separate disinfecting water to clean the equipment when I go to the gym and I even take some of the beauty water to the hair salon so they can wash my hair with it.
Our body is so absorbent, and it’s important that we pay attention to what we are putting in and on our bodies. The beauty water has a pH of 4.0 to 6.0 and it can be used as a face wash, hair care, pet care, polishing, cleaning and preserving frozen food. My skin has never looked better, and I really feel like I’m aging backward. I was at the gym the other day and a lady stopped me to tell me how amazing and youthful my skin looked. She asked me how old I was, and it turned out that I was actually older than her!
The beauty water is great for toning and firming the skin, and I’ve also found that it’s handy for those of us with sensitive skin. I like to get lasers and fillers done every so often, and because I’m a natural redhead my skin always turns bright red or bruises where work was done. Even for the kiddos or the clumsy members of the house, a little bit of the 11.5 strong Kangen Water will help speed up the healing process of bruises or cuts. Parker has his own experiences of how the water improves the body’s ability to heal.
“I walked away from an L2 spinal fracture without surgery as my spine regenerated and healed itself, as told by Dr. Victor Vargas, OrthoArkansas. I also had an incident where I got an infection, and the surgeon said, ‘I didn’t think you were going to live, let alone be healed and walking in 45 days. I’ve never seen this before.’ When you have things like that happen to either yourself or to people that you know, it’s almost unheard of and hard to explain,” Parker says. “If you’re drinking a large quantity of Kangen Water daily, then the body is in an optimum environment for healing itself.”
COVID-19 has made everyone more mindful of germs and the surfaces we interact with. The Kangen Water with a pH of 2.7 has cleansing properties that will eliminate germs and get rid of bacteria. I take a bottle of this water with me to the gym now to clean the equipment before and after I use it because I trust how well it will sanitize the handles and buttons everyone and their grandma have been touching. Kitchens, bathrooms, pet messes and anything that you would be a chemical cleaner for can be cleaned with this water. A little hard to wrap your head around, sure, but it can be done.
Switching out the liquids you use every day such as water bottles, cleaners or beverages can make all the difference in the long run when you are working on bettering your holistic health.
“6,600 physicians have said that this is the water everyone should be consuming on a regular basis for overall health efficacy of their life. By not looking at the ingredients of what we’re putting into our bodies, we’re aging ourselves four to five years. Our bodies need balance and consistency,” Parker says.
Everything is regulated with Kangen Water even down to the packaging. The filter systems are made in Osaka, Japan, and the workers make everything down to the styrofoam packaging by hand.
“Quality control is the most important thing to the CEO of the company. He’s in his 70s but looks like his late forties. It’s the wildest thing,” Parker says.
Parker helps people find balance in their body and life by teaching those interested about the process and benefits of Kangen daily and helping them understand how their health can improve.
I feel so much younger and refreshed drinking and using this pure form of water, and I’m learning just how healthy I can be.
