Reverse Aging by Sang Whang
Mr. Sang Whang, author of Reverse Aging shows how the accumulation of acid waste leads to complications including osteoporosis. Understanding this biological function is vital to understanding why drinking purified alkaline water is important. We encourage you to read each and everyone of the quotes from Reverse Aging on this site. It will give you a clear understanding of the importance of alkalizing our body tissues can boost overall health and the health of specific areas of our body. Sang Whang did a great job of simplifying the technical and scientific language so that everyone can understand why alkaline water is the ultimate type of drinking water. Drinking the alkaline water produced by any of our quality Microwater water ionizers is a simple and effective way of flushing out acid waste from our body. Combine your eating of organic alkaline forming foods with the drinking of negatively charged alkaline water for the very best health results.
"Many different forms of arthritis and gout are the result of acid accumulation in the joints. Heavy people add more pressure on their joints, thus speeding up wear and tear; however, a young person seems
to do fine even if he is heavy. It is the accumulated acid that damages cartilages and irritates the joints. Unfortunately, the joints are where the blood cannot carry out wastes easily.
Gout is the accumulation of uric acid in the joints. According to Webster, gout is a disease resulting from a disturbance of metabolism, characterized by an excess of uric acid in the blood and deposits of uric acid salts in the tissues around the joints, especially of the feet and hands: it causes swelling and severe pain, especially in the big toe.
In today's medicine, there is no effective treatment for these types of degenerative diseases. Because it is painful, one instinctively takes pain killers; however, aspirin types are acidic and they can further irritate the joints. The sooner we accept the fact that these diseases are the result of too much acidic waste, the sooner we will find the cure for these problems."
The true cause of cancer
This quote, while from Sang Whang's book Reverse Aging, was actually from another source. This is the best explanation of the formation of cancer I have ever read.
Herman Aihara, in his book entitled "Acid & Alkaline", states that :
"If the condition of our extracellular fluids, especially the blood, becomes acidic, our physical condition will first manifest tiredness, proneness to catching colds, etc. When these fluids become more acidic, our condition then manifests pains and suffering such as headaches, chest pains, stomach aches, etc. According to Keiichi Morishita in his Hidden Truth of Cancer, if the blood develops a more acidic condition, then our body inevitably deposits these excess acidic substances in some area of the body such so that the blood will be able to maintain an alkaline condition.
As this tendency continues, such areas increase in acidity and some cells die; then these dead cells themselves turn into acids. However, some other cells may adapt in that environment. In other words, instead of dying - as normal cells do in an acid environment - some cells survive by becoming malignant cells. Malignant cells do not correspond with brain function nor with our own DNA memory code. Therefore, malignant cells grow indefinitely and without order. This is cancer."
Sang Whang went on to state that "dinking alkaline water will not harm healthy cells while it may destroy malignant cells."
Best cancer prevention means
Drinking high pH alkaline water will definitely help in preventing cancer. Research should be done by the National Cancer Institute to see how alkaline water may help in curing early stages of cancer, depending upon how far the cancer has progressed. I am sure that there is a point of no return. However since the healthy cells are alkaline and the malignant cells are acidic, drinking alkaline water will not harm healthy cells while it may destroy malignant cells. It is worth trying.
In general, degenerative disease are the results of acid waste buildups within us. When we are born, we have the highest alkaline mineral concentration and also the highest body pH. From that point on, the normal process of life is to gradually acidify. That is why these degenerative disease do not occur when you are young. They occur usually after 40. The difference between the 20 year old you and the 40 year old you physically is that you have accumulated more acidic wastes at 40 than at 20.
Alkaline water therapies
Dr. Keijiro Kuwabara of Japan has been clinically treating diabetes quite successfully by use of alkaline water. He reports that a 49 year old insurance company employee was diagnosed by the company physician as having a case of insulin-independent diabetes mellitus. With only one month’s use of alkaline water, the sugar count came down to virtually an undetectable level, from 300mg/dl one month previously.
The pancreas produces one of the highest pH body fluids, pancreatic juice, with its pH value 8.8. A shortage of calcium ions in the body impairs the production and the release of the insulin hormone. This eventually leads to an acidic blood condition. Clogged blood vessels caused by excess protein buildup also impairs pancreatic function. Alkaline water, by supplying calcium in an ionized form and by helping prevent excess protein buildup, can help prevent and heal this condition.
As we age (by now we know this statement to mean “as we accumulate acidic waste products”), they say, that the efficiency of our pancreas decreases. Apparently we accumulate acidic waste products around the pancreas, men more so than women. Men initially begin to build up fatty acids around the waist.
Your blood is your body’s transport system. It carries both nutrients and oxygen
to the tissues of your body. It also carries waste products away from the
Acidification of the body starts in the blood. As mentioned before, the blood performs a balancing acts in order to maintain the blood pH within the safe range of 7.3 to 7.45. The blood has a buffer pool of sodium bicarbonate made to neutralize strong acid compounds coming out of the cells as waste products of metabolism. When this buffer level is too low, acidosis is developed.
Acidosis and high blood pressure
Dr. Kancho Kuninaka, one of the pioneers of the alkaline water treatment in Japan, states that virtually without exception, the patients with high blood pressure have an acidosis condition. He has many successful clinical cases where the acid free high pH alkaline water lowered blood pressure
There are several plausible explanations for this phenomenon. Since the higher pH blood contains excess oxygen, the heart doesn’t have to work as hard. Another factor may be that the viscosity of higher pH blood is low so that the heart does not need to pump as hard. A further reason may be that the calcium ions in alkaline water may be dissolving plaque and cholesterol build-up in the artery walls, thus opening up the passage.
Doctors know that if you take several deep breaths right before the blood pressure measurement, you can get a lower reading. You have temporarily elevated the pH of the blood by breathing out more CO2 and by breathing in more O2. If you can lower your blood pressure by using this trick, your blood pressure is caused by the first two reasons in the above paragraph and you should be able to lower your blood pressure within a few months of drinking the alkaline water.
The skeletal structure of the body is a “calcium bank”. When the body’s condition becomes too acidic, it frequently makes compensating withdrawal of calcium from the bones, leaving them brittle and subject to breakage. A bone is made out of proper combinations of calcium and phosphorus. When just the calcium is removed, the remaining bone becomes highly phosphorous and it becomes weak
The postures of many old people change and they seem to get shorter as they age. These are the results of losing calcium from the skeletal structure. Prolonged usage of alkaline water can help prevent this disaster of the modern diet. Ionized calcium can help to repair the damages.
The opinion expressed in this book was fully confirmed in a study conducted at in the General Clinical Research Center of Moffitt-Long Hospitals, San Francisco. This study was documented in the New England Journal of Medicine. We have included an excerpt of this study below, but To read the full article click on The New England Journal of Medicine

Improved Mineral Balance and Skeletal Metabolism in Postmenopausal Women Treated with Potassium Bicarbonate
The following are some excerpts from a study which appeared in the Volume 330, Article # 1776 June 23, 1994 issue of The New England Journal of Medicine in which researchers proved that prolonged acidosis causes calcium depletion from the skeleton which is used to buffer excess acid leading to osteoporosis. The study showed that supplementation of potassium bicarbonate as found in Alkalife stops this leaching of calcium from the bones.

Background. In normal subjects, a low level of metabolic acidosis and positive acid balance (the production of more acid than is excreted) are typically present and correlate in degree with the amount of endogenous acid produced by metabolism of foods in ordinary diets abundant in protein. Over a life time, the counteraction of retained endogenous acid by base mobilized from the skeleton may contribute to the decrease in bone mass that occurs normally with age.
To test that possibility, we administered potassium bicarbonate to 18 postmenopausal women who were given a constant diet of (652 mg of calcium and 96 g of protein per 60 kg of body weight). The potassium bicarbonate was given orally for 18 days ...that nearly completely neutralized the endogenous acid.
