Water is essential to every bodily function, but not all water is equal. Given all the hype, it’s hard to choose from among the staggering array of bottled beverages, yet beyond all the advertising is a clear liquid that can restore your health. In Healing Waters, Dr. Ben Johnson guides you to oxygen-rich ionized water--a substance that has been proven to maximize well-being.

Healing Waters begins by explaining why water is crucial to good health. It then explores the importance of the body’s acid-alkaline balance and examines why problems with this balance are responsible for many chronic diseases. Finally, the author presents everything you need to know about ionized water, including what it is, why it is necessary to wellness, and how you can produce it. While the Fountain of Youth may be just another legend, with Healing Waters, you will understand that a good source of health and longevity may be no farther than your own home.

Introduction or preface

Imagine if one of nature’s most powerful healers was available to you twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Imagine if the answer to many of your most pressing health problems could be found in your own home. Though it may sound too good to be true, this is not a farfetched fantasy--it’s a reality, and it’s in your kitchen.

Water is the most abundant substance on earth, the primary source of life, and a liquid you consume in some form every day. It’s in most of the foods you eat, it’s the base for nearly every beverage you drink, and it’s contained in every breath of air you inhale. So it’s astonishing that so many medical conditions on the rise today stem from chronic dehydration--insufficient water intake over an extended period of time. From fatigue to premature aging, from asthma to inflammation, and from dry skin to diabetes, the body’s need for more water often lies at the root of the problem. And although health professionals have touted the importance of proper hydration for several years, urging us to fit in our eight glasses daily, these problems remain. Why? Because when it comes to water’s impact on your body, quality is just as important as quantity, especially for the prevention and treatment of disease. Meeting your daily water requirement is part of the battle, but the environmental toxins in tap water and our modern, highly acidic diet can counteract the numerous benefits offered by a glass of pure H-2-O.

There’s a way out of this dilemma. The solution is ionized water, which, for decades, has been used in other countries as a means of improving health. Superior to both distilled and filtered water, ionized water is H-2-O that has undergone a mild--and safe--electrolyzing process that boosts its vitality, rids it of harmful, acidifying chemicals, and makes it capable of transporting nutrients and oxygen all over your body quickly and effectively. Moreover, technological advances have made it possible for this scientific process to take place in your own home, which means that it can easily become part of your lifestyle and daily routine.

As a physician for more than thirty years, it has been my mission to spread the word about medical innovations that I have employed in my practice and found to work with my patients. Ionized water is one such innovation, and this book sets out to demystify the ionized water phenomenon, explaining the science behind the process of ionization as well as how it works to enhance practically every function your body carries out. Chapters 1 and 2 lay the groundwork for this investigation, beginning with a discussion of the health benefits of water in general and why the vast majority of Americans are suffering from the damaging effects of chronic dehydration. Chapter 2 is an informative guide to acid-alkaline balance, a major factor in maintaining good health. Acid-alkaline imbalance is connected to a wide variety of serious medical problems, and understanding this connection is one key to understanding the special power of ionized water.

Chapter 3 takes a closer look at ionized water and its distinctive characteristics. You’ll learn about its chemical makeup and how it came to be used for medicinal purposes. In this chapter you will also discover how electrolysis improves the quality of drinking water more than distillation or filtration. Chapters 4, 5, and 6 cover the wide expanse of health benefits offered by both alkaline and acidic ionized water, from enhanced oxygenation of the body to radiant skin. You will find how ionized water can be used to prevent premature aging, alleviate allergies, and treat diabetes, among other health conditions.

The final two chapters of this book are geared towards you, the reader, and give some guidelines for not only making ionized water a part of your everyday life, but also maximizing its benefits. Chapter 7 provides some dietary recommendations and food-combining tips for achieving acid-alkaline balance. Foods and beverages have been categorized according to their acidifying or alkalizing effects, which will help you make dietary choices that will reinforce ionized water’s healing function. Chapter 8 is a helpful guide to buying and using a water ionizer, an investment that will surely change the way you live for the better. You can also consult the “Resources” section at the end of the book to find ionizer manufacturers and distributors located in the United States.

Simply put, ionized water is nature’s water. Reading this book is the first step towards total rejuvenation of your body and overall health. If you want to enrich the quality of your health and life naturally, safely, easily, and in the comforts of your own home, then read on.
