Doctors, Scientists and Nutritionists on Kangen Water

Dr. Hiromi Shinya, leading endocrinologist, clinical professor of surgery, head of the endoscopic center at Beth Israel Medical Center, Vice-chairman of the Japanese Medical Association in the United States

“It is widely recognized in the medical profession that a healthy and clean colon is one of the most important precursors to good health and that the great majority of body ailments and diseases originate in an acidic and dirty colon. Water is essential for your health.”

“I have examined more than 300,000 people’s stomachs and intestines for 35 years and realize that our health depends largely on our dietary life. And from my experiences I would like to teach you healthy, dietary habits to help you enjoy your life!”

“It is widely recognized in the medical profession that a healthy and clean colon is one of the most important precursors to good health and that the great majority of body ailments and diseases originate in an acidic and dirty colon. Water is essential for your health. Drinking “good water;”
especially hard water which has much calcium and magnesium keeps your body at an optima
alkaline pH.”

“Kangen Water is alkaline rich water (ph 8-9.5), and is considered the very best drinking water because of its incomparable powers of hydration, detoxification, and anti-oxidation.” (Page 159)

Dr. Hiromi Shinya, M.D. was born in 1935 in Fukuoka. After graduating from Juntendo University, School of Medicine, he was internationally active and made a phenomenal impact as a pioneer in the field of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy. Dr. Hiromi Shinya is a clinical professor of surgery at Albert Einstein College of Medicine at Yeshiva University; head of the endoscopic center at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York, New York; and Vice-chairman of the Japanese Medical Association in the United States. He is also affiliated with both the Maeda Hospital and Hanzoo-mon Gastrointestinal Clinic in Japan. Dr. Shinya pioneered modern colonoscopic techniques, and invented the electrosurgical polypectomy snare now common on colonoscopes, allowing for removal of colon polyps without invasive surgery.

He also authored of The Enzyme Factor, the English translation of his book on the relationship between enzymes and health that has sold two million copies in Japan. In his book and even on the cover Dr. Shinya extols the virtues of drinking alkaline ionized water, specifically, Kangen Water® produced only by the Enagic® devices. Dr. Shinya puts all his patients on Kangen Water® as part of his recommended diet.

• One of the Top FIVE Foremost Physicians in the World.
• Chief of Endoscopy Beth Israel Medical Center New York, one of the most prestigious medical centers in U.S.
• Sits on the Board of directors for a half a dozen Japanese Hospitals.
• Inventor of the Colonoscopy (ask a physician, the colonoscopy is actually CALLED “The Shinya Method”).
• Thousands of cancer-free patients who have never had a relapse – no other physician can match his reputation.
• Will only treat a patient if they agree to drink Kangen Water from an Enagic machine because he understands
that the ROOT cause of disease is dehydration and acidosis and if the patient is not willing to address that with super-hydrating alkaline Kangen Water, there is nothing he can do for them.
• Helped develop the water ionization technology and personally ONLY drinks Kangen Water from an Enagic machine.

He is well into his seventies and still has an active practice

Dr. Horst Filtzer, Vascular Surgeon

“When I first drank Kangen water I experienced something I had never had before, I liked it, I liked it very much. … As I investigated the product, as I investigated the concept of ionized water as I investigated the concept of alkalization of the body cells, I became more and more convinced that this is a product that is of absolute value to all mankind. That it is a product that should be used in all households if at all possible, because it clearly is superior to any form of water than I ever encountered.”

“Personally, I can testify that there is no question that my own life has been markedly enriched by the ingestion of Kangen Water. .. I endorse Kangen Water as a physician, as a surgeon, as a human being,
100%. I feel that it is of great benefit to all mankind. … I can only recommend it in the highest way.”

Dr. Horst Filtzer, M.D. a Harvard Medical School graduate cum laude is a Vascular Surgeon. Horst has 35 years of active surgical practice in General and Vascular Surgery at Cambridge City Hospital in capacities as Assistant Director, Department Chairman, and Program Director He is also Director of the Wound Care Center in Western Arizona Regional Medical Center, Bullhead City, AZ.

Dr. Corinne Allen, international researcher and practitioner in natural health and nutrition

“Brain inflammation can occur from many causes including: head injuries, premature birth, lack of oxygen and various infections. The resulting inflammation can provide dysfunction in the body’s ability to detoxify harmful substances. They can also exhibit mitochondria that have low energy output and high free-radical generation. Often those with brain challenges like Autism and Aspergers, drink almost no water each day, only accentuating the problems in brain functioning. In Autistics and others where brain inflammation is high, toxins can more easily cross the blood brain flooding the brain with free radicals.

Kangen Water™ has been providing my clients with a strong source of antioxidants and improved hydration. In our brain programs we observed that our therapeutic expectations
have been significantly exceeded by adding Kangen Water™ to the treatment
plan”.

Dr. Corinne Allen is an international researcher and practitioner in natural health and nutrition and has been in practice for more than 30 years. After receiving her doctorate in nutrition Dr. Allen went on to more training in neurokinesiology and brain-stimulation techniques. She is recognized for her natural and practical approach to health regarding natural and alternative methods of stimulating permanent changes in the brain in dyslexia, ADD, Autism, Asperger’s syndrome, learning disabilities, academic and behavioral issues and brain injuries. She runs the Advanced Learning & Development Institute.

Dr. Robert Young, Cellular Nutritionist, MS, D.Sc., Ph.D., N.D

“The pH level (the acid-alkaline measurement) of our internal fluids affects every cell in our bodies. Extended acid imbalances of any kind are not well tolerated by the body. Indeed, the entire metabolic process depends on a balanced internal alkaline environment. A chronically over-acidic pH corrodes body tissue, slowly eating into the 60,000 miles of veins and arteries like acid eating into marble.

If left unchecked, it will interrupt all cellular activities and functions, from the beating of your heart to the neural firing of your brain. In summary, over-acidification interferes with life itself leading to all sickness and disease!”

“Researchers believe that disease is caused by excess acidity in our body that weakens all body systems. Caused by our high stress lifestyles, what we eat and pollutants, it affects virtually everyone. This forces the body to rob minerals – calcium and magnesium – from vital organs and bones. Our reserves are depleted, leaving the body vulnerable to bone density loss, heartburn, indigestion, blood sugar issues, weight gain – 68 conditions in all. When healthy, your body has sufficient alkaline reserves to balance it self – and naturally resists disease. The easiest way to help your body to be more alkaline is to drink alkaline water”

Dr. Robert O. Young, MS, D.Sc., Ph.D., N.D. has been widely recognized over the past two and a half decades. Throughout his career, his research has been focused at the cellular level. Having a specialty in cellular nutrition, Dr. Young has devoted his life to researching the true causes of “disease” subsequently developing The New Biology™ to help people balance their life.

In 1994, Dr. Young discovered the reality of biological transformation of red blood cells into bacteria and bacteria to red blood cells. He has since documented several such transformations. Dr. Young’s research findings have been published in several noted journals, including The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, (Sympathetic Resonance Technology, Scientific Foundations and Summary of Biologic and Clinical Studies, Dec. 2002, Vol. 8, No. 6: 835-842.) He is the author of numerous articles and author and co-author of many books including “The pH Miracle (2002), The pH Miracle for Diabetes (2003), The pH Miracle for Weight Loss (2004).

Dr. Peggy Parker, Naturopathic Physician, Biological Medicine

“Months of testing and research have led me to the discovery that drinking Kangen Water™ is the most effective tool I have found to quickly, easily, and economically reduce cellular oxidation and achieve a more alkaline pH in the body.”

As a Biological Medicine Physician, I have been measuring the levels of oxidation in bodily fluids for about a decade using a very sophisticated piece of lab equipment called the QFA (Quantitative Fluid Analysis). Based on the rate of oxidation in these fluids this measurement device calculates a person’s biological age. For most people this biological age is generally 20-50 years older than their actual chronological age.

Since it is our biological age that determines the length of our life, that number is quite significant. More than 3 years of testing and research have led me to the discovery that drinking Kangen Reduced Alkaline Water is the most effective tool for quickly, easily and economically changing the rate of oxidation on cells that I have ever encountered.”

“One can therefore say that drinking ionized Kangen water has the potential to slow the aging process. The powerful component of the water that does this is the –ORP (Oxidation Reduction Potential) charge on the water. This negative ORP part of the water is what causes this water to be able to slow down the oxidation of our bodies.

As the cell walls of our body become oxidized, they become sticky and this prevents hydration of the body as well as nutrient absorption and cell waste to be expelled. The -ORP removes oxidation from the cell wall and allows for better hydration, and cell metabolism and overall cell health.”

Dr. Parker, N.D. & Biological Medicine expert is a traditionally trained Naturopathic Physician who resides in Spokane, Washington.

She is an internationally renowned teacher and lecturer. After receiving her Naturopathic degree, Dr. Parker continued her education with a post-doctoral degree in Biological Medicine from the PBMN in Lustmühle, Switzerland. This intensive, two year program was designed and led by the famous Swiss physician, Dr. Thomas Rau. The basic focus of this course revolved around adjusting the pH (acid/alkaline ration within body fluids), ORP (rate of oxidation in body tissues), and the conductivity of minerals across the cell wall membrane, and just how these factors affect health.

As a physician Dr. Parker has been trained to both administer and evaluate tests including Darkfield Microscopy, Biological Terrain Assessment (QFA), EAV, Electro-Dermal Screening, Computer Regulation Thermography, Tongue and Pulse Diagnosis, Sclerology, Heart Rate Variability, Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis, Applied Kinesiology and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy to name a few.

Dr. Dave Carpenter, President of the International Iridology Practitioners Association

“This [alkalizing] program contains a whole new way of looking at diet and nutrition. When followed, it leads to a healthy, lean, trim body and an enhanced level of wellness, energy and mental clarity most people have not experienced previously. ”

“Based on years of research and observation, we have concluded that over acidification of the body is the underlying cause of all disease. Because many people consume a diet primarily comprised of acid forming foods, (i.e. sugars, meat, dairy, yeast breads, coffee, alcohol, starches, etc.) rather than whole plant foods, they are frequently sick and tired”

“In my experience, Kangen Water™ supercharges your nutritional program better than anything. Water is the key and this [Enagic® Kangen™ Water] is the best water I know of. Anyone who gives it an honest try will experience it in their own health without question!”

Dr. Dave Carpenter is a member of the Idaho Association of Naturopathic Physicians. He is currently the President of the International Iridology Practitioners Association (IIPA), has served on the Board of Directors of IIPA since 1996 as Public Relations Director and Vice- President.
Dr. Dave Carpenter is a Licensed Acupuncturist, Fellow of the International Academy of Medical Acupuncturists, and an IIPA Certified Comprehensive Iridologist (CCI). He is also a member of the American Naturopathic Medical Association, the Idaho Acupuncture Association, faculty member of the Intermountain Institute of Natural Health, and a graduate of Central States College of Health Sciences as a Naturopathic Medical Doctor, and the Royal Academy of Naturopathy in Australia as a Naturopathic Doctor, a graduate of the International Academy of Medical Acupuncturists. Dr. Carpenter also holds a BS

Dr Tim McKnight, m.d

Dr. Mcknight shares a great insight into how the medical profession has a natural skepticism on new innovation in disease prevention. He calls Kangen Water an alternative therapy for cellular stress and recommends that everyone should drink it.

Dr McKnight has written his story, his analysis and results about Kangen water in his outstanding book: Confessions of a Skeptical Physician.

Dr McKnight describes the root cause of disease as Stress in living organisms unbalanced unchecked stress is the stimulus for disease. He lists them as:

Oxidative Stress Acidic Stress Hydration Stress

The more accumulative stress we experience in these three categories, the more diseased our cells become and the more effort is needed to balance the body so that real healing can occur.

Dr. Susan Lark, Clinical Nutritionist

“Drinking four to six glasses of alkaline water a day will help to neutralize over acidity and over time will help to restore your buffering ability. Alkaline water should be used when conditions of over acidity develop, such as cold, flu or bronchitis. Like vitamins C, E and Beta Carotene,
alkaline water acts as an antioxidant because of its excess supply of free electrons. This can
help the body against the development of heart disease, strokes, immune dysfunctions, and other common ailments.”

“The benefits of the alkaline water created through electrolysis far exceed just its ability to gently raise the pH of the cells and tissues of the body and to neutralize acids. Because the alkaline
water has gained a significant number of free electrons through the electrolysis process, it is able to donate these electrons to active oxygen free radicals in the body, thereby becoming a super antioxidant. By donating its excess free electrons, alkaline water is able to block the oxidation of normal tissue by free oxygen radicals.”

Dr. Susan Lark is one of the foremost authorities in the fields of clinical nutrition and preventive medicine. A graduate of Northwestern University Medical School, she has served on the clinical faculty of Stanford University Medical School,
and taught in their Division of Family and Community Medicine. Dr. Lark is a distinguished clinician, author, lecturer and innovative product developer. Through her extensive clinical experience, she has been an innovator in the use of self-care treatments such as diet, nutrition, exercise and stress management techniques in the field of women’s health, and has lectured extensively throughout the United States on topics in preventive medicine. She is the author of 13 best-selling books on women’s health including The Chemistry of Success.

Dr. Otto Warburg, Chemist, Nobel Prize Winner

“All normal cells have an absolute requirement for oxygen, but cancer cells can live without oxygen – a rule without exception.” “Cancerous tissues are acidic, whereas healthy tissues are alkaline.

Water splits into H+ and OH- ions, if there is an excess of H+, it is acidic; if there is an excess of OH- ions, then it is alkaline.”

Otto Heinrich Warburg was born on October 8, 1883, in Freiburg, Baden. His father, the physicist Emil Warburg, was President of the Physikalische Reichsanstalt, Wirklicher Geheimer Oberregierungsrat. Otto studied chemistry under the great Emil Fischer, and gained the degree, Doctor of Chemistry (Berlin), in 1906. He then studied under von Krehl and obtained the degree,
Doctor of Medicine (Heidelberg), in 1911. He served in the Prussian Horse Guards during World War I. In 1918 he was appointed
Professor at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Biology, Berlin-Dahlem. Since 1931 he is Director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Cell Physiology, there, a donation of the Rockefeller Foundation to the Kaiser Wilhelm Gesellschaft, founded the previous year.

For his discovery of the nature and mode of action of the respiratory enzyme, the Nobel Prize has been awarded to him in 1931. This discovery has opened up new ways in the fields of cellular metabolism and cellular respiration. He has shown, among other things, that cancerous cells can live and develop, even in the absence of oxygen. Otto Warburg is a Foreign Member of the Royal Society, London (1934) and a member of the Academies of Berlin, Halle, Copenhagen, Rome, and India. He has gained l’Ordre pour le Mérite, the Great Cross, and the Star and Shoulder Ribbon of the Bundesrepublik. In 1965 he was made doctor honoris causa at Oxford University.

Sang Whang, engineer, scientist and inventor

The accumulation of acidic waste products within our body is the process of aging. Therefore, removing old, stored waste is reverse aging. When we think of “health,” we think of diet and exercise. Diet and exercise help our body dispose of waste products. However, they are very difficult to stay with and they are not as effective.

Now science has made it simple and easy to remove acidic waste products that are within our body, and the method is more effective than diet and exercise. The true “Fountain of Youth” was right under our nose all the time. Learn the scientific processes and devices available for “Reverse Aging.” No need to accept “Aging” as a fact of life. Anybody can do it!

Sang Whang is an engineer, scientist, and inventor with many US patents. His fields of expertise span many different areas such as data communication devises (modems), electronic filters, chemistry, water, cornea measuring devises, multi-focal contact lenses, etc. An improvement of his own health without medicine, die or exercise caused him to investigate the phenomenon and led him to the discovery of his theory of “Reverse Aging.”

Dr. Yoshiaki Matsuo PhD., Vice President of the Water Institute of Japan

“In my opinion, redox potential is more important than pH. … For example, the average pH of blood is 7.4 and acidosis or alkalosis are defined according to deviation within the range of 7.4 +
-0.05.

But nothing has been discussed about ORP, or oxidation-reduction potential.”
“It has long been established that reactive oxygen species (ROS) [free radicals that contain the
oxygen atom] cause many types of damage to biomolecules and cellular structures, that, in turn result in the development of a variety of pathologic states such as diabetes, cancer and aging.

Reduced water is defined as anti-oxidative water produced by reduction of water. Electrolyzed reduced water (ERW) has been demonstrated to be hydrogen-rich water and can scavenge
ROS in vitro (Shirahata et al., 1997).”

Dr. Yoshiaki Matsuo PhD is Vice President of the Water Institute of Japan and was contributing inventor to the modern domestic ionizer.

Dr. Mu Shik Jhon, Chemist, Founding president of the Association of Academies of Sciences in Asia

“Hexagonal water comprised of small molecular units or ring-shaped clusters, move easily within the cellular matrix of the body, helping with nutrient absorption and waste removal. It aids metabolic processes, supports the immune system, contributes to lasting vitality and acts as a carrier of dissolved oxygen. It can provide alkaline minerals to the body and it helps in the more efficient removal of acidic wastes. Drinking hexagonal water takes us in the direction of health. It supports long life and freedom from disease. Biological organisms prefer hexagonal water.”

“Ionized water has a hexagonal shape and carries an abundance of hydroxyl ions (OH-). It provides extra electrons that neutralize destructive free radicals circulating throughout the body. Hexagonal ionized water carries a high negative ORP (Oxidation Reduction Potential) when it is first produced, making it a potent anti-oxidant.”

“When taken internally, the reduced ionized water with it redox potential, or ORP of -250 to
-350 readily donates its electrons to oddball oxygen radicals and blocks the interaction of the active oxygen with normal molecules.”

“Water has the ability to attract and accumulate bio-energy. It also stores an energy memory of harmful or helpful vibrations to which it was exposed in the past. Chlorinated tap water is polluted with non-biological chemicals and negative energy imprints. It is also devoid of bio-energy and so may be regarded as being badly polluted as well as ‘dead’.

Alkaline living water is regarded by a growing number of health care professionals as the best water to drink and is listed as a medical device in Japan for the treatment of degenerative diseases.”“My hypothesis was born from the clinical observation study in our clinic. Since May ’85 we have confirmed thousands of clinical improvements, obtained solely by exchanging drinking (as well as cooking water) from tap water to reduced water.”

Honorary and Founding president of the Association of Academies of Sciences in Asia (AASA) and Former President of the Korean Academy of Science and Technology (KAST), was born in 1932 at Taegu, Korea and received BS and MS degrees from Department of Chemistry, Seoul National University in 1954 and 1958, respectively.

Then he moved to U.S.A. to pursue his doctorate study at Department of Chemistry, University of Utah. He
received his Ph.D. degree in 1966 and became an assistant professor at University of Virginia. Three years later, Prof. Jhon came back to his mother country, Korea, to serve as the head of Liquid State Chemistry Research Laboratory at the Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) in 1969.

Then, he joined the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) as a charter member in 1971. Prof. Jhon is a foreign fellow of National Academy of Sciences, India, and Pakistan Academy of Sciences, a foreign academician of Russian Academy of Science and a fellow of the European Academy of Arts, Sciences & Humanities. He published over 280 papers and produced many eminent scholars including about 50 Ph.D.s.

He served as President of KAST, Founding President of AASA, Founding President of the Korean
Association for the Advancement of Sciences and Chairman of the Board of Research Institute of Bioinformatics and
Molecular Design. His main research fields were the theory of liquids and solids, structure and properties of water and aqueous solution, water and biological molecules, theoretical studies of zeolite, hydrogel and polymers.
He was interested in the role of water in biological system, especially human body. To explain the role of water, he proposed a
liquid structure theory, “Significant Structure Theory” and extended it to water. Hexagonal and pentagonal water structures are the water cluster models that he introduced to explain the abnormal behaviors of water. During last two decades before he passed away, he intensively worked on the illumination of the relation between hexagonal water and health, and authored
The Water Puzzle and the Hexagonal Key.

Dr Keiichi Morishita, Director of the Ochanomizu Clinic in Japan and the Head of the International Natural Medicine Association

“Modern medicine treats these malignant cells as if they were bacteria and viruses; it uses chemotherapy, radiation and surgery to treat cancer. Yet none of these treatments will help very much if the environment of the body continues to remain acidic.”

“Drinking water that has a high alkaline pH, because of its de-acidifying effect, will help in preventing cancer. In Asia, alkaline water is regularly served to patients, and is considered a regular part of treatment.”

Dr Keiichi Morishita is Director of the Ochanomizu Clinic in Japan and the Head of the International Natural Medicine Association. He is also an Honorary Professor, Georgia Tbilisi State Medical University, Professor, Choson University & Graduate School, Korea, Visiting Professor, Shenyang Pharmaceutical University, China and Honorary Director, China Health Care Food Association & Senile-Resistant Association, Honorary Director, Non-Pharmacotherapy Treatment & Research Center, Heilongjiang Province China, and Honorary President, Guangxi Pama Institute of Longevity, China, among many others. He is the author of The Hidden Truth of Cancer 1950 Graduated from the Tokyo Medical University where he majored blood physiology. 1955 Received Ph.D. from Chiba University, the school of Medicine. 1960 Presented a basic theory of Natural Medicine for cancer treatment and longevity (Morishita Theory) 1966 Testified as a member of the academic panel at the hearing on cancer by the special Committee for Advancement of Scientific Technologies of the Japanese House of Representatives. 1970 Established the Natural Medicine Society, the Life Science Association and Ochanomizu Clinic 1977. The effectiveness of Natural Medicine was endorsed by the McGovern Report written by Senator George McGovern of the U.S.A. 1982. The validity of the theory, diet of meat produces cancer; diet of grain/vegetables prevents cancer, presented at the hearing was proven by the National Academy of Science (USA) Recommendation.

Dr Hidemitsu Hayashi, Cardiovascular Surgeon, Director of the Water Institute of Japan

“Devices to produce reduced water were introduced into our clinic in May 1985. Based on the clinical experiences obtained in the past 15 years, it can be said that introduction of naturally reduced water (using H-01 Active Hydrogen Generator) or electrolyzed-reduced water for drinking and cooking purpose for in-patients should be the very prerequisite in our daily medical practices. It is because any dietary recipe cannot be a scientific one if property of water taken by the patients is not taken into consideration.” “The Ministry of Health and Welfare in Japan announced in 1965 that the intake of reduced water is effective for restoration of intestinal flora metabolism.”
