Body Performance and Alkaline Water


Whether playing sports or exercising, you are consuming more oxygen and metabolizing energy through muscle work. This process creates free radicals, lactic acid and a mild metabolic acidosis. Have you ever exercised and felt like you were going to puke?  Your body goes into a process of trying to detox or rid itself of toxins stored in your body. Drinking alkaline, ionized, mineral hydrate water can help ameliorate all three of these byproducts of exercise.

I attend local races and schools, set up a table, and hand out free samples of Kangen water, to help educate others on the benefits.  My goal is to make people aware of what they are drinking when it comes to bottled water.

What is so great about Kangen water when talking about exercising or sports?  For one, trainers love Alkaline water! Alkalizing the body is a well-known method of increasing sports endurance. Studies on the effects of alkaline water on exercise show that alkaline water provides these benefits.

  • Improved Hydration
  • Greater Endurance
  • Faster Recovery
  • More Energy

Improved Hydration – Alkaline water hydrates better than plain water.

Greater endurance – Alkalinity counter- acts lactic-acid induced muscle fatigue

Faster Recovery – Alkaline water helps neutralize and flush lactic acid from the body after exercise.

More Energy – The antioxidant effect of alkaline water has been shown to help muscles use oxygen more efficiently. The improved oxygen uptake allows muscles to use aerobic metabolism more efficiently. Athletes who participated in research studies reported that drinking alkaline water made their workouts feel less strenuous.

HOW You Can Drink SAFE & Healthy Water In Owensboro Ky And Surrounding Counties

According to recent reports please read:

new report says some Kentuckians could be drinking a cancer-causing chemical called chromium-6.

Chromium-3 is an essential human dietary nutrient and can be found in many vegetables, fruits, meats, grains and yeast. It is known to enhance insulin, as well as help metabolize carbohydrates, fats and proteins, according to the National Institutes of Health.

Chromium-6, however, is a toxic form of the mineral. While this form does occur naturally in the environment, from the erosion of chromium deposits, chromium-6 can also be produced by industrial processes. The EPA has reported instances of chromium-6 being released into the environment from industrial pollution — leakage, poor storage or inadequate industrial waste disposal practices.

Studies of chromium-6 have established that breathing the particles can cause lung cancer. The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration sets strict limits for levels of airborne chromium-6 in the workplace. The chemical has also been connected to liver damage, reproductive problems and developmental harm, according to the EWG, and presents greater risks to infants and children, people who take antacids, and people with poorly functioning livers.

drinking-water-is-it-safeThe Environmental Working Group, a public health advocacy group, analyzed data collected from samples of drinking water from all 50 states by the Environmental Protection Agency. Of the 85 Kentucky counties tested, the highest levels of chromium-6 were found in the samples from Daviess County.

The average level of chromium-6 found in Daviess County was 1.12 parts per billion, which according to Bill Walker, EWG managing editor, equates to a drop of water in an Olympic-sized swimming pool.

The EPA has imposed a limit for chromium of 100 parts per billion. But that includes both chromium-6 and chromium-3. The latter is an essential element for human function. However, too much can cause skin rashes.

Walker said the EPA bases its limit on the toxicity of chromium-3, not the more dangerous chromium-6.

“It’s two things mixed together and dumped into drinking water, and EPA says we have a standard to cover the combination of these things,” Walker said. “But don’t have a standard for the individual one, which happens to be more dangerous.

Chromium-6 is the carcinogen that was mentioned in the movie “Erin Brockovich.” It is found in coal-burning power plants, used in leather tanning and in the production of materials like chrome plating. Animal and limited human studies have shown that the chemical causes tumors to grow in the stomach and intestines.

“The population is drinking a lower concentration, so these are affects that might accumulate over a lifetime,” said Walker. “There are elevated levels of stomach cancer in communities that have bigger exposures.”

Chromium-6 when inhaled is also known to cause asthma, pneumonia, decreased respiratory functioning, and long-term exposure can produce effects on the liver, kidneys, gastrointestinal and immune systems.

Lanny Brannock, spokesman for the Kentucky Department for Environmental Protection, said because chromium-6 is an unregulated contaminant, the state does not monitor for it.  “We’re following the guidelines the EPA puts forth and we monitor for total chromium, which is what is required,” Brannock said.


In 2011, the EPA was moving forward to impose restrictions on how much chromium-6 could be present in drinking water. But industry groups like the American Chemistry Council, which represents chemical companies, appealed seeking to delay the rules. Now, the EPA is studying the health effects of chromium-6 in drinking water. The agency cannot take action on imposing restrictions until the studies are finished, sometime this year or in 2017.

Owensboro Municipal Utilities is the main supplier of drinkable water in Daviess County. Other water suppliers, including SE Daviess Co. Water District, West Daviess Co. Water District and East Daviess Co. Water Association, Inc., buy their water from OMU.

Public Relations Manager Sonya Dixon said if acceptable levels of chromium-6 were adjusted by the EPA, the company would work to meet the new requirements.

“When you look at it relative to current acceptable levels — 100 parts per billion compared to 1.2 parts per billion — we have to keep it in perspective,” she said.

The Green River District Health Department covers seven counties including Hancock, Henderson and Daviess counties. Environmental Director Clayton Horton said chromium-6 hasn’t been on their radar. He said they take action when agencies like the EPA or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issue guidance to public health departments on how to educate public.

“We want to make sure our actions are based on stuff that can be backed up,” Horton said.

If the EPA were to eventually impose a legal limit for chromium-6 specifically, changes to levels in drinking water wouldn’t happen overnight. The agency usually gives states and companies time to develop processes to remove a chemical once it’s deemed unsafe at a certain level.


Clay Kelly, an engineer with Strand Associates, a civil engineering firm that works with local governments on waste water, said it would still be up to Kentucky to implement the standard. He said that could go beyond a mandate that water companies filter out the chemical. He said coal burning power plants and other producers of chromium-6 could be directed to pre-treat their water before it’s discharged back into streams and lakes.

“Instead of those facilities being able to discharge whatever out of their process, they have to have a pre-treatment to remove something particularly difficult before it enters the public wastewater system,” Kelly said. “They [the government] could at least monitor it before it’s diluted with everything else.”

Elevated levels of chromium were also found in Jefferson, Shelby, Spencer, Bullitt and Hardin counties. The counties with the lowest levels were Henry, Washington, Jessamine, Carter and Calloway.

Trainers Love Alkaline Water

A very popular show on TV  production is The Biggest Loser. About 20 or so severely overweight people are given a chance to go to a fitness ranch to lose weight and learn healthy habits. They also have two trainers that help them learn to eat right and train them in a fully equipped gym. One of those trainers is Jillian Michaels.Jillian Michaels loves Alkaline Water

Jillian is the drill sergeant of trainers. She’s the in your grill, kick your butt type of trainer. She doesn’t take any nonsense and has no tolerance for whining and excuse making. Sometimes that’s just what people need to jolt them out of the habits that have gotten them there in the first place.  I actually have a workout DVD and she cuts no slack.

She also had her interview posted on the website that endorses Kangen.

TH: What do you do on a daily basis that impacts both your health and the environment?

JM: I have gone off the deep end on this. I find that when one has the knowledge and the means they have a responsibility to make the ethical choice. With regard to my diet, I always go organic. I shop at local farmers’ markets whenever possible. I have given up all animal products except for fish that has been ethically fished like ocean caught salmon, farmed arctic char, farmed trout, pacific cod, tilapia, crab, shrimp, and farmed oysters. I use all natural beauty products like Olive Oil, brown sugar for scrubs, avocado and ethical organic brands. My cleaning products are all green – and got rid of paper towels almost entirely and use rags instead. I use a Kangen water Unit  for drinking water and put in stainless steel canteens, never bottled water.

Take a tip from Jillian. Drink Kangen Water!

The Ugly Truth About Bottled Water

My husband and I would always fight over which bottled water to buy.  His was Aquafina and mine was Deer Park Spring water.  I think most people buy bottled for convenience more than anything.  This is why for 8 years I carried the thought of one day I will have my Kangen water machine.  Getting the Kangen water machine was the best thing I have ever done for not only my family but also the earth in general.  I feel as though not am I only helping my family’s health but also saving the earth for a healthier generation as well as a healthier earth!  

So what did we do with the plastic bottles?  They went in the trash.  We were contributing to the factor below which is sad to think!

Bottled Water Is Bad For The Environment


According to the National Geographic, “Bottled water is a drain on the environment: The U.S. public goes through about 50 billion water bottles a year, and most of those plastic containers are not recycled. Transporting the bottles and keeping them cold also burns fossil fuels, which give off greenhouse gases.” 1500 plastic bottles are consumed every second. Enough plastic is thrown away each year to circle the earth four times. And, it will take 1000 years for the plastic to degrade.

Eco-costs include manufacturing, trucking, shelving, and marketing. And meeting the annual U.S. demand for plastic bottles requires enough oil to keep 100,000 cars on the road for a year, says Janet Larsen of the Earth Policy Institute. Sure, the 70 million empty water bottles the U.S. produces per day can be recycled, but the sad truth is, about 86 percent of them end up in the trash. Hardly worth it, for what flows out of the tap and into a reusable glass for free.

It Can Pose Health Threats

And, by the way, about half of all bottled water is tap water that has been purified. Bottled water companies increasingly use BPA-free plastic, but laced into plastic bottles are other chemicals that can seep out if bottles are exposed to heat or sit around for a long time.

The plastic in bottled water often contains chemicals BPA and phthalates, which are proven to be hazardous to human health.

It’s Not Proven to Taste or Be Better For You Than Tap

truth about water.pngThe non-profit, non-partisan Environmental Working Group (EWG) says, “The government does not mandate that bottled water be any safer than tap water. In fact, the chemical pollution standards are nearly identical.” Historically, bottled waters have even been recalled for contamination with particulate matter, mold and bacteria.

Some bottled water is glorified tap water at 10,000 times the cost.

The label on your bottled water may depict a peaceful mountain stream, but that doesn’t mean the water inside is pure and pristine.

Only some bottled water comes from springs or groundwater sources. It turns out that approximately 25% of bottled water is sourced from … the tap. Sure, some companies filter or radiate the tap water with ultraviolet light before selling it to you at several thousand times the cost of municipal tap water. (Examples include Aquafina, Dasani, and many other brands.)


I recently noticed that marketers are tapping into the health kick of drinking alkaline water.  I bought a 9.5 Alkaline bottle just to test it!  See the results here .

Safe and readily available water is a basic human necessity in order to meet health and sanitation needs. However, tap water around the world has consistently been found to be sub-bar, “first-world” countries not excluded. According to the WHO (World Health Organization) some pretty astonishing facts about drinking global water are

  1.  Around the world, at least 1.8 billion people use a drinking-water source contaminated with feces. Contaminated water can transmit diseases such diarrhoea, cholera, dysentery, typhoid and polio. Contaminated drinking-water is estimated to cause 502,000 diarrheal deaths each year. By 2025, half of the world’s population will be living in water-stressed areas. In low- and middle-income countries, 38% of health care facilities lack any water source, 19% do not have improved sanitation, and 35% lack water and soap for hand washing.
  2.  NY Times: Tainted Tap Water in U.S. 35 years after U.S. Congress passed the Safe Drinking Water Act, some regulators and environmentalists say the law is now so out of date that it fails to protect people from the most obvious threats. In the USA, the NY Times reported on violations of the Clean Water Act, a federal law which governs water pollution, and has shown household water that is contaminated with lead, nickel, and other heavy metals. (Some extreme side-effects of this contamination have resulted in skin burns, rashes, and eroded tooth enamel)  The NY Times has since compiled a database of violations of the Safe Drinking Water act, finding 40% of the nation’s community water systems in violation at least once, exposing millions to potentially harmful chemicals, toxins, and heavy metals.

We’re not telling you that our machine is going to solve all of the world’s water problems. But, we’re definitely suggesting that you have your water analyzed so that you know what you are working with. From there you can be proactive in filtering your source water, then ionize it to get the healthiest water on the planet! Think about what you drink!

Kangen Water is Antioxidant-Rich, Healthy Water for Revitalized Cells and a Healthy Alternative to regular Tap and Bottled Water

Kangen Water (aka electrolyzed reduced water (ERW), or hydrogen water) begins as tap water. The Enagic® machine filters out chlorine and other impurities from the tap water, then separates the hydrogen and oxygen with a process known as electrolysis. This process adds an electron to the hydrogen creating a new molecule called diatomic molecular hydrogen gas. When this is added to your drinking water, it produces antioxidant-rich Kangen Water.
Oxidant, by definition, is an oxidizing agent while antioxidant is any substance that acts to slow or prevent the oxidation of another chemical. In the human body, oxidative damage plays a huge role in many of our modern day diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. Antioxidants, on the other hand, act to tame the free radicals (or highly reactive chemicals) in the body that have potential to harm cells and cause disease.Screen Shot 2020-01-28 at 7.37.09 AM

Why You Need Turmeric


Health Benefits of Turmericukonprogram_ukonbox.jpg

My friend swears by Turmeric.  It helps her get out of the bed each morning.  As I age, I don’t want to be the grandma who has trouble moving in the mornings or when I get up from the chair due to inactivity, or flexibility.  Turning 50 was a lifestyle and eye opener for me to make some changes in supplements as well as eating habits.

Turmeric, the main spice in curry, is arguably the most powerful herb on the planet at fighting and potentially reversing disease. It has so many healing properties that currently there have been 6,235 peer-reviewed articles published proving the benefits of turmeric and one of its renowned healing compounds curcumin.

Of the 6000+ studies referencing curcumin, the most interesting finding is that when turmeric is compared to conventional medicine its benefits equal that of many pharmaceutical medications.  In fact, a number of studies have even reported that using cur cumin is more advantageous than certain prescription drugs.

Below is the research of Turmeric:

When examining the research, turmeric benefits go beyond this list of drugs:

  • Anti-inflammatory drugs
  • Anti-depressants (Prozac)
  • Chemotherapy
  • Anti-coagulants (Aspirin)
  • Pain killers
  • Diabetes drugs (Metformin)
  • Arthritis medications
  • Inflammatory bowel disease drugs
  • Cholesterol drugs (Lipitor)
  • Steroids

Health Benefits of Turmeric

Turmeric has relatively no known side effects unless taken in extremely excessive amounts.

Additionally, ever since several groundbreaking studies in the mid-1980s, the cur cumin in turmeric has been suggested by researchers as actually being a better option for those with vascular thrombosis so instead of taking an aspirin a day, reach for the turmeric.

6R7KCXBEEE.jpgWhen it comes to anti depressants, studies showed cur cumin was as effective as Prozac in managing depression.  According to the authors, “This study provides first clinical evidence that cur cumin may be used as an effective and safe therapy for treatment in patients with Mild Depression.

Arguably, the most powerful aspect of curcumin is its ability to control inflammation.

The journal Oncogene published the results of a study that evaluated several anti-inflammatory compounds and found that aspirin and ibuprofen are least effective, while curcumin, is among the most effective anti-inflammatory compounds in the world.

(Diseases today such as cancer, ulcerative colitis, arthritis, high cholesterol and chronic pain can be the result of inflammation.)anti inflammatory medications tablets

As you will see below in several other articles related to chronic illness, keep this in the back of your mind: Turmeric’s key to disease reversal may be its ability to keep inflammation at bay. 

Because curcumin is known for its powerful anti-inflammatory and pain reducing characteristics, a study was conducted on 45 rheumatoid arthritis patients to compare the benefits of curcumin in turmeric to arthritis drugs (diclofenac sodium), that put people at risk of developing leaky gut and heart disease.

The study split these volunteers into three groups: curcumin treatment alone, diclofenac sodium alone, and a combination of the two. The results of the trial were eye-opening:

 Our study provides the first evidence for the safety and superiority of cur cumin treatment in patients with active RA, and highlights the need for future large-scale trials to validate these findings in patients with RA and other arthritic conditions. 
Of all the various topics scientists have tackled in regards to the curcumin and disease reversal, cancer (of various types) is one of the most thoroughly researched topics. In the words of global authorities like Cancer Research UK,

A number of laboratory studies on cancer cells have shown that curcumin does have anticancer effects. It seems to be able to kill cancer cells and prevent more from growingIt has the best effects on breast cancerbowel cancerstomach cancerand skin cancer cells. 

Turmeric works incredibly well to help naturally treat cancer and is especially effective at treating breast cancer, colon cancer and skin cancer.

A 2007 American study that combined curcumin with chemotherapy to treat bowel cancer cells in a laboratory showed that the combined treatment killed more cancer cells than the chemotherapy alone. 

States-side, the American Cancer Society states:  Laboratory studies have also shown that cur cumin interferes with cancer development, growth, and spread. Researchers have reported that curcumin blocked the formation of cancer-causing enzymes in rodents.

Recently, curcumin has received a great deal of focus because of it’s ability to reduce tumor size and kill cancer cells.

Bottom line: Turmeric works incredibly well to help naturally treat cancer and is especially effective at treating breast cancer, colon cancer and skin cancer.

diabetes Word Cloud It also can help lowering blood sugar and reversing insulin resistance there’s arguably no better natural treatment than adding turmeric into your diet.

In 2009, Biochemistry and Biophysical Research Communications published a study out of Auburn University that explored how supplementing with turmeric can help reverse diabetes.

The study discovered that curcumin in turmeric is literally 400 times more potent than Metformin (a common diabetes drug) in activating AMPK which improves insulin sensitivity which can help reverse Type 2 Diabetes.

In addition to correcting the causes of diabetes, curcumin has also been proven to help reverse many of the issues related to insulin resistance and hyperglycemia.

Oftentimes, people with digestive and stomach complaints become intolerant to medical interventions because the stomach flora is already compromised and drugs can literally tear up the mucosal lining.

An in-depth analysis of all the studies evaluating curcumin’s ability to manage inflammatory bowel disease (IBS, Crohn’s disease, and Ulcerative Colitis) found that many patients were able to stop taking their prescribed corticosteroids because their condition improved so dramatically by taking curcumin! 


Diabetics and non-diabetics alike are suffering from a common complication called oxidative stress, which damages the inside of blood vessels.  Because of this damage to the arteries, cholesterol begins to build up to patch up the damaged areas which leads to high levels of LDL cholesterol.

Traditionally, statin drugs (like Lipitor) are widely known to harm the kidneys and liver and cause a number of deadly side effects.  They do bring cholesterol down but never address that actual cause which is oxidative stress that is caused by high blood sugar levels and inflammation.

Thankfully, medical doctors are becoming more and more aware of the dangerous side effects of statin-drugs and prescribing natural alternatives like curcumin and fish oil instead!

A study done by Drugs in R & D found that curcumin was equal or more effective than diabetes medications at reducing oxidative stress and inflammation in the treatment of high cholesterol.

Studies like these are causing pharmaceutical companies to try and design a synthetic form of curcumin that unfortunately, will not work as well as the real thing.

Natural Remedy instead of drugs.jpg

One of the more widely accepted properties of curcumin in scientific communities is its ability to manage pain.

Just this past year the European Journal of Pharmacology published research that discovered curcumin naturally activates the opioid system in diabetic rats. Typically manipulated by drugs, this natural process serves as the body’s inherent pain-relieving response.

Therapeutic use of turmeric and other curcumin-rich plants are displacing conventional medical treatments and proving it’s a legitimate natural painkiller.

Lastly, we’ll take a look at how turmeric benefits the many conditions normally treated by corticosteroids such as:

  • Psoriasis
  • Lupus
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Scleroderma
  • Chronic pain              

Ultimately it is easy to see how taking therapeutic curcumin is superior to most medicines.

If you have any of the diseases above, you will want to consider this natural approach first. For those of you who aren’t sick, taking turmeric will serve you well as a preventative measure.
