Kangen Water for Crohns Disease
(West Virginia, U.S.)
Hello, Nancy, I came across your site while attempting to research options for my chronic and sometimes dangerous dehydration requiring IV fluid replacement.
I have Crohn's Disease, a permanent ileostomy and dumping syndrome. I cannot seem to stay hydrated in spite of drinking 10 or more glasses of water per day, including Pedialyte to help offset the cramping from loss of electrolytes.
My skin looks dreadful and the fatigue is crushing, not to mention cramps on my feet and legs, dizziness, etc.
Do you have success stories related to people like me switching to the Kangen Water system? Any information is greatly appreciated.
Nancy’s response:I am sorry to hear about your challenge with Crohn’s disease. I know several people who have it and how difficult it is to live with.
I have been drinking kangen water® (which is ionized water or hydrogen water)) and I have also been sharing this water with my friends and clients for nearly 6 years.
I have seen many people with various G.I. tract disorders significantly improve while drinking this water. Unfortunately, the FDA does not allow us to share testimonies from people who have benefited.
It is not that the water itself “cures” anything, I believe it is effective because drinking this type of water provides the optimum environment in the body to heal itself.
The ionization changes the structure of the water (micro-clustering of the water molecules) which makes it six times more hydrating than regular water because it is so much more absorptive at the cellular level.
In addition, the antioxidant potency of the water may help reduce inflammation, and the natural alkalinity of the water helps with pH and mineral balance in the body.
As I am sure you know, all three of these properties would be beneficial for anyone with Crohn’s.
Most of the clinical studies with ionized water have been done in Japanese medical hospitals and clinics over the past 35 years. Many of the clinical studies involved gastrointestinal disorders.
It is also essential for anyone with an irritable bowel disorder to take a quality multi-mineral supplement, such as Vital Earth Fulvic Minerals to replenish the minerals lost with frequent watery stools.
Proper food combining is absolutely essential for helping to heal the intestinal lining and reduce inflammation.
