My Brethren, I wish that ye may be in health and prosper, even as your soul Prospers (3 Jn 1:2)

Beneficial Antioxidant Properties Alkaline Antioxidants Alkaline water has antioxidant properties that help counteract free radicals. These free radicals can lead to pre-mature aging and other various conditions. The antioxidants being in liquid form allow for a quicker absorption into the system. So the benefits are markedly obvious since ionized water has anti-aging and anti-disease properties. It is also believed that some elements in this water drinking water can help develop cancer resistance. Alkaline Cleansing ionized alkaline water benefits are that it helps to cleanse the organs and is particularly effective in cleansing the colon. As unclean elements cling to and build up within the colon, over time they can become poisonous and even lethal. Using ionized water can safely and easily remove these fecal matters. It can remove build up that is weeks or even years old leading to a more effective and thorough elimination process. This can help decrease the recurrence of unhealthy constipation issues. As you take it regularly, preferably daily, and keep your system cleansed and in well working order you may notice that you become less susceptible to flu's, colds, stomach viruses, and other common illnesses. Improves Physical Appearance AntiAging

Here's Some information I learned about Alkaline Water Machine

Along with cleansing the body's inner systems alkaline water also rejuvenates the skin and keeps it hydrated. It helps the skin replace tissues and contributes its elasticity and overall health. It can also help detoxify the skin causing it to appear smoother and leading to fewer breakouts. When the ph balance is kept in check vital food nutrients can be more readily absorbed by the skin. This helps contribute to a younger more youthful glow. Alkaline water can also aid in your weight loss goals. It aids in the breakdown of fatty elements in food. It can also be viewed as a natural appetite suppressant since it has no calories yet can still leave you refreshed and satisfied. All of these combined physical improvements can make you feel younger and revitalized. A few other features of water are that it lubricates joints and muscles to help prevent injuries. This can benefit those who are susceptible to sprains or may suffer from arthritis. Also dehydration can cause organs such as the heart to work even harder. When this happens it zaps your energy and can leave you feeling exhausted. As it releases harmful substances it can help you feel more energetic. This can be due to the fact that clean organs don't have to work as hard and expend as much energy to carry out their functions. This has lead to studies being done that link sufficient water intake to the prevention of certain diseases such as bladder and colon cancer.

;    Some of us have been looking all our lives for diets, supplements or nutritional therapies that have a major impact that can shift our body from a declining, degenerative state to a Regenerative state where the body starts to rebuild and rebalance. Using these methods, it can be very difficult, depending upon how advanced a condition is, to reverse this process of degeneration.

Here's Some information I learned about Stemfit

is a totally unique product that can help reverse this degenerative decline into a regenerative spiral upwards. It has three foods in it; Marine protein and Plant Protein extracts and an extract from a fertilized egg from an organically raised hen, taken at the exact hour on the ninth day of incubation, when the life creating potential inside the egg is at its maximum; just before the Stem Cells of the egg begin to form beaks, bones and feathers.

Back in 60s and 70s, many prominent scientists believed that saturated fat was the main cause of heart disease, by raising the "bad" cholesterol in the blood. This idea was the cornerstone of the low-fat diet. Because of a few bad studies and misguided political decisions, this diet was recommended to all Americans in the year 1977. However, there wasn't a single study on this diet at the time. The American public became participants in the largest uncontrolled experiment in history. This experiment didn't turn out very well and we are still suffering the consequences..

Here's Some information I learned about 9 Lies About Fat that destroyed the Nation's Health

The "war on saturated fat" has been a miserable failure. It was initially based on flawed studies, but somehow became public policy (with disastrous consequences). The worst part is... the governments and health organizations have yet to change their position despite overwhelming evidence that they've been wrong all along. Actually, saturated fat doesn't really raise LDL that much. The effect is weak and inconsistent and appears to depend on the individual . When saturated fat does affect LDL, it changes the particles from small, dense (very, very bad) to Large LDL, which is mostly benign . Saturated fat also raises HDL cholesterol, which is associated with a reduced risk of heart disease . If anything, saturated fats actually improve the lipid profile, NOT the other way around. In the past few years, many massive studies have examined the link between saturated fat and heart disease risk.

will lower your stress levels while still in the stressful situations. How wonderful is that? Yes we need to slow down. Yes we need to rest more. But what if you can't? What if moving to an island and relaxing for a living just isn't in the cards for us? Stemfit Active, THAT'S WHAT! Stemfit Active!. Lower your Cortisol and you lower yourBlood Sugar. The simple solutions are the best solutions!

Here's Some information I learned about Stemfit

I FEEL like working out. I didn't like the word stamina to describe the product because I felt like it was too much of a male word and had a sexual connotation. However, now that I have taken the product I agree that the word stamina really does describe how it affects me. My 12 hour days are not so unbearable. I still have energy at the end of the day and am not dragging myself home. I don't know if this is a good thing but my skin is oilier. I feel like the pill warms me from the inside out. I would say that I felt a little numb. I didn't have much emotion but I feel like I have become alive again. This is what I have after 1 week. I am still working on this journey. I am excited to see what the next few weeks brings. I am headed to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico on March 14th and I am looking forward to being in a swimsuit again! I am also excited about the way I feel and the emotions I am feeling again. YEAH! I went to the gym today for the first time since I have been feeling better.

Theoretical problems With Alkaline water: The main problem with the concept is that it is impossible to alter the pH of a patient's blood without causing severe health concerns. Mammalian blood contains a vast number of different pH buffers which evolved to automatically raise or lower the blood pH if a deviation occurs. These buffers heep the pH of human blood between 7.35 and 7.45. If the buffers become saturated and the pH of the blood is altered more than +/-0.4 pH, death will result. It is commonly claimed by alkaline diet proponents that cancer cells are killed in an alkaline environment, which is true, but so are almost all other cells in the human body. Proponents will attempt to disregard the above by reminding us that it is possible to alter the pH of urine by eating or drinking particular foods, which is also true, but is completely independent of the blood pH. This is based on the metabolites of certain food chemicals (referred to as "Ash") becoming concentrated in the urine. As a (healthy) bladder is an independent receptacle in the body, the pH of the fluid contained therein also has no effect on the blood pH. A different attempt at disregarding this is the claim that blood pH is balanced not by buffers but by excess acid being dumped from the blood into the cytoplasm of cells, meaning that blood pH won't reveal that your cells are dangerously acidic; needless to say, this is false..

Here's a place to learn about Alkaline Water Machines

Another clue of the ineffectiveness of an alkaline diet is that whatever food you eat will pass through your stomach. The acidity of the stomach is affected by things such as stress, amount of food eaten, or infections. Eating acidic or alkaline foods has no effect on stomach pH, in much the same way as it has no effect on the pH of blood. More recently, proponents claim that the benefits arise from reducing acid load in the body. It is claimed that when acid load is too high, "alkaline minerals" such as calcium are reclaimed by the body from bones leading to conditions such as osteoporosis. Meta-analysis studies have shown this is not the case. Far from being healthy, alkaline diets could actually be harmful, as they recommend removing certain food groups altogether rather than reducing certain types within the groups. Examples would be removing all fats and oils from the diet which provide Essential Fatty Acids, and dairy products, which are excellent sources of vitamins and minerals, especially vitamin D which is difficult to find in foods outside of dairy products. A further theoretical problem comes from the definition of "acid/alkaline food" used by many proponents of the diet, which is based on burning the food in air and testing the pH of the resulting ashes and remains. The results of this uncontrolled oxidation have only the vaguest resemblance to the by-products created by the actual process of human digestion and respiration, which involves breaking down the food into its consistuent molecules and metabolising them separately.

Here's 10 solid tips about Alkaline Water Machines

Some people believe that alkaline water helps our bodies metabolize nutrients and expel toxins more efficiently than regular tap water, leading to better health and performance. Anecdotal evidence supports some of those claims. But so far, we don't have solid data supporting alkaline water's use. Until we learn more, save your money: Stick to tap water and supplement with mineralized water if you like. But what is alkaline water? Alkaline water is water that's less acidic than regular tap water. This means it is rich in alkalizing compounds, including calcium, silica, potassium, magnesium, and bicarbonate. Many people believe that the typical North American diet contributes to chronic low-grade acidosis – a condition that may be associated with poor health outcomes including heart problems, altered hormonal status, and the loss of muscle or bone. Proponents of alkaline water believe that it can neutralize the acid in your bloodstream and help your body metabolize nutrients more effectively, leading to better health and performance. Let's take a closer look at these claims. Most of us know that water is a big deal. In fact, our bodies are largely made of the stuff. No other substance is so important to our physiology or health. No wonder so many of us feel concerned about increased pollutants and contaminants in our tap water. But before we completely dismiss North American tap water, the good news is that it's actually quite safe compared to the water in many other parts of the world. Tap water contains different dissolved elements that influence its pH level. Pure water has a pH level close to 7. Alkaline water has a pH above 7.

The Book of Ezekiel

Chapter 16

1

Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

2

Son of man, cause Jerusalem to know her abominations,

3

And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto Jerusalem; Thy birth and thy nativity is of the land of Canaan; thy father was an Amorite, and thy mother an Hittite.

4

And as for thy nativity, in the day thou wast born thy navel was not cut, neither wast thou washed in water to supple thee; thou wast not salted at all, nor swaddled at all.

5

None eye pitied thee, to do any of these unto thee, to have compassion upon thee; but thou wast cast out in the open field, to the lothing of thy person, in the day that thou wast born.

6

And when I passed by thee, and saw thee polluted in thine own blood, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live; yea, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live.

7

I have caused thee to multiply as the bud of the field, and thou hast increased and waxen great, and thou art come to excellent ornaments: thy breasts are fashioned, and thine hair is grown, whereas thou wast naked and bare.

8

Now when I passed by thee, and looked upon thee, behold, thy time was the time of love; and I spread my skirt over thee, and covered thy nakedness: yea, I sware unto thee, and entered into a covenant with thee, saith the Lord GOD, and thou becamest mine.

9

Then washed I thee with water; yea, I throughly washed away thy blood from thee, and I anointed thee with oil.

10

I clothed thee also with broidered work, and shod thee with badgers' skin, and I girded thee about with fine linen, and I covered thee with silk.

11

I decked thee also with ornaments, and I put bracelets upon thy hands, and a chain on thy neck.

12

And I put a jewel on thy forehead, and earrings in thine ears, and a beautiful crown upon thine head.

13

Thus wast thou decked with gold and silver; and thy raiment was of fine linen, and silk, and broidered work; thou didst eat fine flour, and honey, and oil: and thou wast exceeding beautiful, and thou didst prosper into a kingdom.

14

And thy renown went forth among the heathen for thy beauty: for it was perfect through my comeliness, which I had put upon thee, saith the Lord GOD.

15

But thou didst trust in thine own beauty, and playedst the harlot because of thy renown, and pouredst out thy fornications on every one that passed by; his it was.

16

And of thy garments thou didst take, and deckedst thy high places with divers colours, and playedst the harlot thereupon: the like things shall not come, neither shall it be so.

17

Thou hast also taken thy fair jewels of my gold and of my silver, which I had given thee, and madest to thyself images of men, and didst commit whoredom with them,

18

And tookest thy broidered garments, and coveredst them: and thou hast set mine oil and mine incense before them.

19

My meat also which I gave thee, fine flour, and oil, and honey, wherewith I fed thee, thou hast even set it before them for a sweet savour: and thus it was, saith the Lord GOD.

20

Moreover thou hast taken thy sons and thy daughters, whom thou hast borne unto me, and these hast thou sacrificed unto them to be devoured. Is this of thy whoredoms a small matter,

21

That thou hast slain my children, and delivered them to cause them to pass through the fire for them?

22

And in all thine abominations and thy whoredoms thou hast not remembered the days of thy youth, when thou wast naked and bare, and wast polluted in thy blood.

23

And it came to pass after all thy wickedness, (woe, woe unto thee! saith the LORD GOD;)

24

That thou hast also built unto thee an eminent place, and hast made thee an high place in every street.

25

Thou hast built thy high place at every head of the way, and hast made thy beauty to be abhorred, and hast opened thy feet to every one that passed by, and multiplied thy whoredoms.

26

Thou hast also committed fornication with the Egyptians thy neighbours, great of flesh; and hast increased thy whoredoms, to provoke me to anger.

27

Behold, therefore I have stretched out my hand over thee, and have diminished thine ordinary food, and delivered thee unto the will of them that hate thee, the daughters of the Philistines, which are ashamed of thy lewd way.

28

Thou hast played the whore also with the Assyrians, because thou wast unsatiable; yea, thou hast played the harlot with them, and yet couldest not be satisfied.

29

Thou hast moreover multiplied thy fornication in the land of Canaan unto Chaldea; and yet thou wast not satisfied therewith.

30

How weak is thine heart, saith the LORD GOD, seeing thou doest all these things, the work of an imperious whorish woman;

31

In that thou buildest thine eminent place in the head of every way, and makest thine high place in every street; and hast not been as an harlot, in that thou scornest hire;

32

But as a wife that committeth adultery, which taketh strangers instead of her husband!

33

They give gifts to all whores: but thou givest thy gifts to all thy lovers, and hirest them, that they may come unto thee on every side for thy whoredom.

34

And the contrary is in thee from other women in thy whoredoms, whereas none followeth thee to commit whoredoms: and in that thou givest a reward, and no reward is given unto thee, therefore thou art contrary.

35

Wherefore, O harlot, hear the word of the LORD:

36

Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thy filthiness was poured out, and thy nakedness discovered through thy whoredoms with thy lovers, and with all the idols of thy abominations, and by the blood of thy children, which thou didst give unto them;

37

Behold, therefore I will gather all thy lovers, with whom thou hast taken pleasure, and all them that thou hast loved, with all them that thou hast hated; I will even gather them round about against thee, and will discover thy nakedness unto them, that they may see all thy nakedness.

38

And I will judge thee, as women that break wedlock and shed blood are judged; and I will give thee blood in fury and jealousy.

39

And I will also give thee into their hand, and they shall throw down thine eminent place, and shall break down thy high places: they shall strip thee also of thy clothes, and shall take thy fair jewels, and leave thee naked and bare.

40

They shall also bring up a company against thee, and they shall stone thee with stones, and thrust thee through with their swords.

41

And they shall burn thine houses with fire, and execute judgments upon thee in the sight of many women: and I will cause thee to cease from playing the harlot, and thou also shalt give no hire any more.

42

So will I make my fury toward thee to rest, and my jealousy shall depart from thee, and I will be quiet, and will be no more angry.

43

Because thou hast not remembered the days of thy youth, but hast fretted me in all these things; behold, therefore I also will recompense thy way upon thine head, saith the Lord GOD: and thou shalt not commit this lewdness above all thine abominations.

44

Behold, every one that useth proverbs shall use this proverb against thee, saying, As is the mother, so is her daughter.

45

Thou art thy mother's daughter, that lotheth her husband and her children; and thou art the sister of thy sisters, which lothed their husbands and their children: your mother was an Hittite, and your father an Amorite.

46

And thine elder sister is Samaria, she and her daughters that dwell at thy left hand: and thy younger sister, that dwelleth at thy right hand, is Sodom and her daughters.

47

Yet hast thou not walked after their ways, nor done after their abominations: but, as if that were a very little thing, thou wast corrupted more than they in all thy ways.

48

As I live, saith the Lord GOD, Sodom thy sister hath not done, she nor her daughters, as thou hast done, thou and thy daughters.

49

Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.

50

And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good.

51

Neither hath Samaria committed half of thy sins; but thou hast multiplied thine abominations more than they, and hast justified thy sisters in all thine abominations which thou hast done.

52

Thou also, which hast judged thy sisters, bear thine own shame for thy sins that thou hast committed more abominable than they: they are more righteous than thou: yea, be thou confounded also, and bear thy shame, in that thou hast justified thy sisters.

53

When I shall bring again their captivity, the captivity of Sodom and her daughters, and the captivity of Samaria and her daughters, then will I bring again the captivity of thy captives in the midst of them:

54

That thou mayest bear thine own shame, and mayest be confounded in all that thou hast done, in that thou art a comfort unto them.

55

When thy sisters, Sodom and her daughters, shall return to their former estate, and Samaria and her daughters shall return to their former estate, then thou and thy daughters shall return to your former estate.

56

For thy sister Sodom was not mentioned by thy mouth in the day of thy pride,

57

Before thy wickedness was discovered, as at the time of thy reproach of the daughters of Syria, and all that are round about her, the daughters of the Philistines, which despise thee round about.

58

Thou hast borne thy lewdness and thine abominations, saith the LORD.

59

For thus saith the Lord GOD; I will even deal with thee as thou hast done, which hast despised the oath in breaking the covenant.

60

Nevertheless I will remember my covenant with thee in the days of thy youth, and I will establish unto thee an everlasting covenant.

61

Then thou shalt remember thy ways, and be ashamed, when thou shalt receive thy sisters, thine elder and thy younger: and I will give them unto thee for daughters, but not by thy covenant.

62

And I will establish my covenant with thee; and thou shalt know that I am the LORD:

63

That thou mayest remember, and be confounded, and never open thy mouth any more because of thy shame, when I am pacified toward thee for all that thou hast done, saith the Lord GOD.
