So.. when you think of detoxification.. do you thin of its as a one-time event that you do by drinking the right water or eating the right supplements?
Simple fact #1. Your own body is capable of detoxification SEVENTY times a day.
You are detoxifying RIGHT NOW. You have a super detoxifier in your body which was designed to keep you clean over thousands of years. it’s call the liver. (And if you are into word association, think about it as a verb. It ‘lives’ you. Kool.
We know about filtration. We know good filtration and we have designed good filtration systems. But no filtration on earth is as sophisticated as the liver. All it asks is optimal hydration, good nutrition and enough exercise.
We can’t help you with food and exercise. If you choose to eat processed food and your only exercise is moving the mouse about, then that’s up to you. What we CAN assist with is clean water at the right pH and loaded with molecular hydrogen. We can therefore keep your urine pH up in the ‘blue zone’ of alkaline – where a healthy body wants it to be.
A working partnership: your liver and kidneys.
Your body knows what it doesn’t like – what might kill you. Drinking alcohol, for instance, is regarded by our body system as akin to a death threat. That’s why you pee after drinking. It’s the body saying “get thee behind me, Satan!” And of course we don’t pee immediately, do we? We’re chatting up that beautiful co-worker, so our body begins to break down the alcohol into substances that are less lethal. So the liver is the entry point of the body’s detox system, breaking down harmful food and drink so it can then be filtered by your ‘second-stage’ filter, your kidneys. And what makes a healthy kidney? Good hydration and good nutrition.
The kidneys: what they do.
From a design perspective, if you know the task a machine is doing is so important that it must not fail – ever – what do you do? You add a backup unit to the machine, and that’s exactly what has been done in our bodies. We have two kidneys because we will die very quickly if we had only one that failed. The kidney quietly awaits the output from the liver or your bloodstream or even direct from your cells, and then perform their own form of filtration. Like our ‘Ultra’ filter, the kidney has millions of nephrons, long porous tubes. The nephrons draw water plus toxins out of the input steam. That’s urine. They also return cleansed water to our bloodstream.
A nephron is composed of renal corpuscles that filter out toxins and renal tubules that return non toxic substances to the bloodstream.
The renal corpuscles filter by blocking out red blood cells, platelets and almost all proteins. It allows the goodies by excluding them from the filtration process. These goodies go straight back into the bloodstream. Small proteins, (albumin, minerals, urea, glucose, water and almost every toxin pass through into the renal tubules. I am gobsmacked at its selectivity: so much better than any man made filter, given that many toxins are smaller thyan the good things it lets through. Nothing useful is lost. All nasties go. So.. does alkaline hydrogen water help when compared to ordinary H2O?
How purified alkaline hydrogen water assists
If your blood is healthy, it is capable of supporting the liver and kidneys. After all, it transports the ‘fuel’ that make these organs work. Our measurement of healthy blood is when it is at a level pH 7.35. There’s a great deal of argument about how the blood automatically (or Not) maintains this pH, but suffice to say that if you eat a huge steak and flood your body with excess acid, or have a big night on the town, it’s your blood that needs rebalancing immediately because it’s your blood that feeds all of your organs. Your sore kidneys after that big night are indicative of them working overtime to restore homoeostasis so the blood can get things back to normal. So when threatened with chloramines, chlorine, fluoride and heavy metals or simply a truckload of acids, the kidneys have to do the purification as fast as possible so they can get the blood back to normal which in turn supports the kidney’s return to homoeostatis. Yes, this is an ongoing process. Blood never sleeps, but as Neil Young says, rust also never sleeps and rust or oxidation is the result of the intake of toxins and acids. How can we quickly and effectively assist the blood to gain the balancing minerals and leave our poor old bones alone? Give it alkaline minerals in water – proven as the best way to get them – 60% better than via supplements or food.
The pH of the bloodstream has an effect on the ability of the kidneys filter certain toxins from the bloodstream. The kidneys are more effective at filtering toxic metals like fluoride and mercury when blood pH in maintained at the alkaline end of it’s normal pH range of 7.35 – 7.45. Drinking alkaline water can raise blood pH by 40 – 70% if it’s too acidic.
Detox every day: Alkaline water has been shown to help the body detox from 10 toxic heavy metals in clinical testing.
Can raised blood pH assist in expelling fluoride?
When a seriously case of self toxification (Binge drinkers for instance) is admitted to hospital, medicos use a process called forced diuresis. While drinking alklaine water isn’t as immediate or powerful as this emerency procedure, it’s way above drinking acidic liquids of any variety!
If your urine pH is 5.5, your clearance rate of fluoride, for instance, is only 5%. Raise your urine to a pH of pH7.6, and the and the clearance rate will rocket to 65%.
What is ‘good’ hydration for our kidneys?
Good hydration may be measured by kidney health, which may be measured by their ability to remove toxins. Good hydration should have pale yellow to clear urine. Bad hydration will eventually precipitate kidney failure. Dehydration forces the body to retain fluid, so you don’t pee. In extreme cases your kidneys may just stop working. And in both cases their utterly essential multiple detoxes per day slow down or stop, forcing the body to retain the toxins it would ordinarily excel naturally. take alook next time you pee. If it’s dark in colour and smells you may be dehydrated.
Finally I have to mention hydrogen. You seem for over 14 years we believed it was just the alkalinity of the water that helped the kidneys, but now we understand that our water is supplying something far wider ranging in health outcomes – molecular hydrogen in gaseous form infused in our UltraStream/” title=”UltraStream”>UltraStream/” title=”UltraStream”>UltraStream/” title=”UltraStream”>UltraStream/” title=”UltraStream”>UltraStream/” title=”UltraStream”>UltraStream/” title=”UltraStream”>UltraStream/” title=”UltraStream”>UltraStream/” title=”UltraStream”>UltraStream/” title=”UltraStream”>UltraStream/” title=”UltraStream”>UltraStream water. And amazingly, the H2 concentration is as little as one part per million in a glass of water to have health effects.
