Brief History of Electolyzed Alkaline Water
Water ionization was first developed in Japan in the early 50’s and the experiments were first conducted on plants and animals. Full scale development started in 1954 by several Japanese agricultural universities on the effects of Reduced Alkaline Water, especially acid water, on plants. Today, nursery farmers that supply cut flowers use acid water to keep flowers longer before delivery to the flower shops; Golf courses use acid water on the greens and fairways without the need of chemicals; Hospitals use acidic water as an astringent for killing germs and bacteria.
Experiments on the human body took much longer because of the difficulties in maintaining the constancy of the environments. Nevertheless, through long, patient experiments by the medical doctors in Japan, much valuable data has been collected and it was concluded that Reduced Alkaline Water made by the water ionizer was non-toxic and alleviated many symptoms of adult diseases.
The first commercial Reduced Alkaline Water ionizers were available in Japan in 1958. Until then, the only water ionizers available were large units used in hospitals. In 1960, a group of medical doctors and agricultural doctors in Japan formed a special medical and agricultural research institute, and they have annual meetings to report their findings. Finally, in January 15th, 1966, this type of Reduced Alkaline Water ionizer was approved as a health improvement medical device by the Health and Rehabilitation Ministry of the Japanese Government.
Here’s a brief background of this incredible water and how this electrolyzed Kangen water machine became an incredible tool of preventive medicine at home.
Initially developed for agricultural purposes and adopted by open-minded doctors, it has slowly grown to be a medical device in Japan since 1965. More than three decades of clinical experience has shown that the electrolyzed water enhances healing power of human body and being eco-friendly. In mid-90’s, its benefits were started to be recognized in the public and the technological advance enabled various companies to develop smaller home units.
In 1998, Dr. Shirahata of Kyushu University had discovered the connection between electrolyzed water and Holy water, often called Miracle Water as well, existed around the world such as Tolacote in Mexico, Nordenou in Germany, Hitatenryo in Japan. Holy water is known for its tremendous healing power and has shown that it works against just about any diseases. Now hundreds of people take pilgrimage to these sites everyday.
He had found that all of these waters have a common property; tremendous anti-oxidant power. And soon he came up with the theory that “Active Hydrogen” is the reason behind such an unusual effect.
Although many scientific studies on this water have been resumed, led by Functional Water Foundation in Japan since 1995, the full potential of the electrolyzed water has not been confirmed yet. And recently, also in the US, the water unit is now being experimented at UCLA, Seton Medical center, U.S. Department of Agriculture, Georgia University, University of Texas, among other scientific institutions.
