Is Malabsorption Impeding your Nutrition?
The body is capable of correcting many problems for itself. In order to do that, though, it must be free from toxins disrupting the system, and it must have access to the nutrients it needs for repair.
Toxicity, diet, lifestyle, stress, antibiotics, chronic disease, and even aging by itself can all lead to a state of malabsorption and an increased level of acidity in the body. Malabsorption means that the body is not absorbing the nutrients it needs, even though they are present in your diet. A very small, but chronic shift toward acidity in your blood stream can deplete your body's natural buffering mechanism designed to maintain your blood's pH. Once depleted, your bones provide the body's secondary mechanism for maintaining blood pH - the calcium and magnesium in your bones. These bone minerals are then pulled into the blood stream and eventually excreted -- a loss of minerals that were once successfully absorbed by the body. Most nutritionists believe that osteoporosis is a result of mineral loss from your bones due to a lifetime of acidic stress.
The Ionizer Plus concentrates the minerals already present in your water and enhances their bioavailability (the ease at which the body can absorb them). Drinking water from the Ionizer Plus also helps to bring the body back into pH balance and restore its mineral absorption capabilities. In the situations where the body's acidity stems from exposure to chemicals and heavy metals, the Thermal Life far infrared sauna is used to eliminate toxins from the body.
In this fashion, both products augment each other to bring the body back into balance restoring water and minerals to the body and enabling the body to correct itself of many chronic problems.
Detoxification can be assisted by taking supplements to bolster your body's detoxification system. For substantial details on this, please read Detoxify or Die by Sherry Rogers, M.D., or The High Blood Pressure Hoax, also by Dr. Rogers (both are available in our Online Store).
In our experience, nearly everyone looking for detoxification is in need of supplementing magnesium (Mg), calcium (Ca), and potassium (K). Taking supplements of these should be part of your sauna routine. For specific quantities, ask your doctor or nutritionist. To better learn what other mineral deficiencies you might have, ask your doctor to prescribe the Ion Panel test from Metametrix.

- Given that your brain is about 80 percent water, the first rule of brain nutrition is adequate water to hydrate your brain. Even slight dehydration can raise stress hormones which can damage your brain over time. Drink at least 84 ounces of water a day.
- A number of studies have shown that dietary intake of antioxidants significantly reduces the risk of developing cognitive impairment. When produced in normal amounts, free radicals work to rid the body of harmful toxins, thereby keeping it healthy.
