Enagic E-Cleaner Simplified Directions


If you haven't purchased your SD-501 unit yet, then you need to add this to your goals for 2010.  The gift of health is truly a blessing for all of us, and to those that already know about Kangen Water, we appreciate knowing this water is a tool that is helping our bodies to correct issues as they occur.

If you have an SD-501 you know the importance of keeping this unit up of minerals on the plates can cause the unit to not be as effective.  Plus, by cleaning it regularly it'll last much longer with higher quality water!

The e-Cleaner that comes with the unit has directions that make the cleaning of this unit look painstakingly difficult.  However, it is really very easy.  The directions were re-written so you can clean your unit easily every 2 weeks!  It is not complicated and I guarantee that if you follow these directions a couple of times you won't even need them after that...because they are so easy!

Here are the directions!

Now go clean your unit and have a healthier day!

What is in Your Tap Water?

What is in that tap water you are drinking?  And if you don't think you are drinking it, then are you washing your foods with it?  Are you cooking with it?  If so, then you are ingesting it.
I was surprised to see that the tap water in my town has twice the number of chemicals than the average tap water.  Hmm....
Maybe you should check out your tap water and see what's in it---
A wonderful resource is: . This group has investigated tap water all over the country. You can put in your zip code and find out exactly what contaminants are in your water and what are over not only legal limit, but over health guidelines as well.

If you want to make healthy alkaline water out of your existing tap water then choose the highest quality unit on the market...the Enagic unit that creates Kangen Water.

What Types of Water are There?

What Types of Water are There?

Types of Water

We often call the earth "The Planet of Water".

Roughly 70% of its surface is covered with water. All living things

on the planet rely on water for survival. We need to drink lots of

water, but unfortunately most of the drinking water available to

us is simply not healthy anymore. In some cases, our drinking

water is dangerous to our health.

Tap Water

How do you feel about drinking 8 glasses of tap water each day?

Chlorination makes tap water safe to drink but it can also react

with organic compounds inside your body to produce toxic

substances, especially in your colon. Small amounts of chlorine

are added to our public drinking water supply to kill bacteria and

other microorganisms. This amount of chlorine is small enough

for us to drink but it can still kill bacteria and enzymes in our

body essential to digestion.

During a shower, our bodies absorb roughly 2 glasses of this

chlorinated water through our skin. We also inhale the mist and

steam of this water while we shower. Nearly all tap water supplies

contain large amounts of active oxygen (oxidants) and high

positive ORP (Oxidation Reduction Potential) values. Having a

high POSITIVE ORP means that tap water can be very oxidizing,

or destructive to your body.

Purified Water Distilled Water and Reverse


Distilled water and water purified by reverse osmosis may not

have most pollutants and additives found in tap water, but it also

lacks any minerals naturally found earth's water that are

essential to our well being. These processes remove

EVERYTHING from the water, including helpful minerals.

Since this water contains no minerals or life whatsoever, it

leaches vital minerals and alkaline buffers from our bodies.

Distilled water and reverse osmosis water have no energy or

vitality at all and can contribute to an acidic state in our bodies.

Bottled Water (Including "Mineral Water")

You might think that bottled water is healthier than tap water. But

in a four-year scientific study, The NRDC (Natural Resources

Defense Council) tested more than 1,000 bottles of 103 brands,

a third of them were found to contain contaminants such as

arsenic and carcinogens.

Recently, another shocking study showed that over time cancer-

causing toxins such as dioxin leach into the water from the

plastic bottle. Actually, a lot of the bottled "spring" waters are just

filtered tap water put in a plastic bottle. These bottles often

remain on store and factory shelves, unopened for months or

even years.

Bottled water is essentially dead water. If you choose your water

based on the package or the brand, you should know that some

95% of the price you are paying for that bottled water is covering

other costs, such as packaging, advertising, distribution costs,

rather than the water itself.

Yet, bottled water is so popular and available almost

everywhere. As a result, the bottled water industry enjoys annual

sales of more than $3.5 billion worldwide. 15 years ago people

wouldn't spend $3-$5 per day on bottled water; these days they


Alkaline Ionized Water

Alkaline ionized water is by far the healthiest water available

today. Decades of scientific and medical research have gone

into its developement. It is produced by an in-home machine that

first filters and then ionizes tap water. This process splits the

water into its alkaline and acidic parts. The alkaline water is used

for drinking. It has tremendous hydrating and antioxidant

qualities, due in part to its smaller water clusters and abundance

of extra electrons created by the ionization process.

Kangen™ Water - The Highest Grade of Alkaline

Ionized Water

Kangen™ water has the strongest antioxidant power of any

alkaline ionized water. The Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP)

of Kangen™ water can reach up to -500mV, where most

average ionized water reaches only around -150mV.

The difference is significant. As a matter of fact, regular Alkaline

Ionized Water units are classified as "home health appliance,"

while Kangen™ Water units are in the "medical device"

classification by the Ministry of Health and Welfare in Japan,

which is equivalent to the FDA in the U.S. Currently, out of 44

companies manufacturing ionized water generators, Only 6 of

them make units certified as Kangen™ Water grade.

Enagic ONLY manufactures certified Kangen™ Water units. And

its quality is considered by many as the best of the best in the


The word "Kangen™" "return to origin" in Japanese. A more

general meanings would be "renewing" or "restoring". Drinking

Kangen™ Water can help "renew" and "restore" a healthy

balance in your life.

Thriving Through the Holidays

I have copied this article by Jim Rohn, one of my favorite motivational speakers, who passed away last week.  He was wonderful and I totally encourage you to read his books and listen to his CD's.  He was one of the most grounded and thoughtful thinking men of our times.

The holidays can be stressful and they really don't have to be.  Here are Jim's words on keeping the holiday a time of celebration.

Thriving Through the Holidays by Jim Rohn

The holidays are upon us; a time of celebration and joy. I love the last days of November through the beginning of the New Year. The pure magic of the holidays is something that I anticipate and enjoy each and every year.

For some though, the holidays have lost the joy and excitement they at other times have had. The pace of life has grown so fast—much faster than those first holidays I remember in my life—that some people don’t enjoy the times they get to spend with their family and friends during what is supposed to be days filled with joy and peace.

Why is that? Probably a lot can be laid at the feet of how fast-paced our times are, but that isn’t all.

I believe our holiday times should be wonderful and filled with lasting and enjoyable moments and memories. So how can we ensure that we come out of the holidays in January with great memories of the past month? Here are six thoughts that will help you experience the holidays the way they were intended to be experienced:

Be Temperate

Holidays can be days of excess for many—too much food, too many cookies and treats. Too much chocolate, schedules that are too busy. One thing that will help you enjoy the holidays is to be temperate. Enjoy the food. Enjoy the treats. Enjoy the busy schedule of activities and parties. But also be disciplined enough to know when to hold back, when to say, “No.” When we go overboard we regret it and lose the opportunity to fully experience that moment. But when we enjoy a little and refrain from going too far, then we can enjoy all that little piece of time has to offer.

Lower Your Expectations

Much of the frustration people experience from the holidays is from setting their expectations too high. They expect too much from friends or family, and when they don’t get what they want, they get frustrated. They expect presents to be perfect and when they aren’t, they get frustrated or disappointed. Instead of having huge expectations this holiday season, just take it as it comes and enjoy what you can. And this brings me to my next point.

Enjoy What You Can and Ignore the Rest

This holiday season, go with an attitude of knowing that things will be what they will be. You can’t control other people or their actions. If a family member pushes the limits of your patience, ignore that and instead focus on how much you can enjoy the time you have with other family members. If things don’t go perfectly—which they won’t—then enjoy what you can and let the rest slide. You will feel a lot better about life if you can take all things a little easier.

Stay Out of Debt

Debt is a killer. It will steal your enjoyment of life. Be sure to stay within your financial boundaries this holiday season. The last thing you want is to start the New Year with a deeper burden financially. Know where you are financially and stay within those limits. You don’t have to impress anyone, just buy gifts that you can afford and express your feelings in the giving of the gift.

Take Time for Yourself

Be sure that, no matter how busy you get, you take time for yourself. Take time to read. Take a long bath if that relaxes you. Take a walk. Spend some time of quiet in front of a fire. Don’t rush through the holidays and sap all of your energy. Your mind and body need to be reenergized, so be sure to take time to do so.

Focus on Your Spiritual Life

Ultimately, no matter what tradition you come from, the holidays are historically days in which we focus on the spiritual. Men and women are created with a natural draw toward spiritual life. However, our culture today tends to stay away from a focus on the spiritual, and that has even crept into our holidays. Be sure to place an emphasis on building your spiritual life and growing in that area. This will help keep you grounded and able to deal with anything that may come your way.

Friends, this time of year is another chance to remember the important truths of life and to enjoy time with dear friends and family.

May you experience the very best this holiday season and move into January better than ever!

What Causes Indoor Air Pollution?

Feeling safe and comfortable in your home?

Well, don't! You're living in a toxic wasteland, a poisonous stew of chemicals and air pollution.

OK, OK, let's start over without the drama.

True, people are becoming increasingly concerned with the health and safety of their homes, from the air quality to the water. And some profiteers have turned this trend into scare messages, complete with close-ups of dust mites lurking in your pillow and killer mold poised to attack your family.

What are some of the real causes of Indoor Air Pollutions?  These may surprise you.....

Are there some that I missed?  Let me know....

Otherwise, I hope you are having a Healthy Day...or making changes towards this goal.
