Are hydration and sleep connected? Spoiler: yes!

The effects of dehydration are similar to the effects of lack of sleep. If you don’t get enough water, you may feel sluggish, experience mood swings and in general, just feel off. But, did you know that not getting enough water can also impact your quality of sleep?

What are the negative effects of dehydration?

We’ve all experienced it—you get to the end of your day and realize you’ve only had a few sips of water. Not good! When you’re dehydrated, you may experience:

  • Increased thirst and a dry mouth
  • Fatigue and confusion
  • Headaches and dizziness
  • Dry skin
  • A rapid heart rate
  • Fever
  • Cramping

It’s happens to all of us. You’re busy and sometimes the day gets away from you. However, if you’re not careful, constant dehydration can cause severe problems. Make sure you talk with your doctor if your symptoms are severe or you’re having a hard time maintaining healthy hydration levels.

Dehydration and sleep

Not only will dehydration effect your everyday life and health, it will impact your quality of sleep, too. Even though your body is mostly still while you sleep, it’s actually an active period where your body restores chemical balances, heals and recovers. In fact, one of sleep’s most important benefits is forming short- and long-term memories. When you sleep, your brain processes, transfers and stores all of the information you took in that day. If you’re not getting good, quality sleep, you may experience memory loss, trouble concentrating while awake, mood swings, a weakened immune system, poor balance, weight gain and risk of disease. Being dehydrated when you go to sleep will affect the way your body restores itself.

Let’s talk about a few ways your body may be effected by going to sleep dehydrated.

Dehydrated sleep = dry mouth and nose

When you go to bed dehydrated, you risk not getting a good night’s rest. You may experience a dry mouth and dry nasal passages, which can cause snoring, even if you’re not a regular snorer. This can keep you up, wake you up an not to mention, keep your partner up, too. The dryness can also cause a sore throat and hoarse voice when you wake up.

Going to sleep dehydrated can cause cramping

Have you ever woken up in the middle of night with an excrusiating leg cramp? Some people call them Charlie horses. If you haven’t had enough water during the day or before bed, you may experience cramping like this while you sleep, especially in your legs. This can be very painful, waking you up and keeping you from getting a good night’s sleep.

A night of dehydrated sleep impacts your whole day

Other than the obvious fact that waking up multiple times in the middle of the night means you’re not getting enough uninteruped RIM Sleep, going to bed dehydrated can have negative implications for the following day. You may feel less alert and experience a lack of energy. You may also notice that if you went to bed dehydrated, your cognitive performance suffers. That is your thinking, reasoning and remembering skills! Kind of important.

Important note: Even if you think you’re well-hydrated when you go to bed, you may be surprised to learn that you actually lose fluid while you sleep. Yep—even just breathing while you sleep, you lose fluid, especially if you snore or breathe through your mouth. You lose more fluid if you get sweaty while you sleep (hey, it happens to all of us), have worked out closer to bedtime without re-hydrating or had a lot of alcohol before going to bed. (Side Note: Drinking just one 16 oz. Glass of Kangen water before bed and the next morning will eliminate hangovers!)

Water x sleep: best practices

Unfortunately, you can’t fix your dehydration problems by chugging water before bed. That can actually have a negative impact on your sleep. If you wait until the end of the day to drink all your fluids, you’ll probably have to get up multiple times in the night to use the bathroom.

To be hydrated and therefore, get your best rest, you want to stay hydrated throughout the day. People used to say a good rule of thumb for water intake was 8 glasses a day, but now the National Academy of Medicine recommends drinking about 11 cups for the average female and about 15 cups for the average male. That may seem like a lot, but this also includes any water from foods you consume. And don’t forget, the amount of water you need varies from person to person and depends on your weight and height, level of exercise and diet, so chat with your doctor to figure out the right amount of water for you.  

Pro tip: Don’t feel like measuring every ounce of water you drink? (We don’t blame you!) A good way to determine if you’re getting enough water is simple—drink water when you’re thirsty. Your body is smart. It will tell you when you need more water.

Another good practice to stay hydrated is to keep a BPA Free Reusable Bottle on hand. If you always have water available, you’ll be able to quench your thirst whenever you need to. Plus, a reusable water bottle helps you keep track of how much water you’ve had. If you have a 20 ounce water bottle, you can do the math to keep up with how much water you’ve had and how much you still need to drink in a day. Not to mention, a reusable bottle reduces waste and is better for the planet. Slide your reusable bottle in your purse or backpack, keep it on your desk at work or on your nightstand so that you can stay hydrated and healthy.

Drinking the right water, that will hydrate you correctly, will allow you to sleep even better, resulting in better clarity, among other benefits.

Why Animals Love Kangen Water

How Can Kangen Water® Help Animals?

If Kangen Water® is a healthy antioxidant, which hydrates, provides a pH balance, detoxifies and much more, then can we share this water with our pets?  The answer is a resounding YES!

Water from Enagic’s Kangen Water Machine can improve the quality of life for our favorite pets.  Consider the fact that these animals spend all their time on the floor, the ground and even on chairs where we have used chemicals for cleaning and where they are prone to bacteria, insects and parasites.  Our pets can benefit from drinking Kangen Water, which can increase their immunity to these challenges, and help to detoxify their systems.

As the word travels and more people own Kangen Water machines, then naturally, more household pets will share in the benefits. Now, there are more farmers, veterinarians, horse trainers and breeders who are realizing the benefit of using Kangen Water in the care of animals. Kangen 2.5 Sanitary Water has already been approved in Canada for the treatment and prevention of infection making it perfect for commercial animal use to clean machinery, feed troughs and utensils to reduce the incidence of herd infection.

Cows on a dairy farm in Japan were given alkaline water for a few weeks in the summer months.  As a result, not only did their coats improve dramatically, but milk production increased by 20% when normally cows production decreases in the summer months.

Kangen Water® as Healthy Drinking Water for Pets

When you give your pets some water, do you provide water from a bottle
or do you fill up their bowl straight from the tap?  Either one of these could be harming your beloved furry friends.  The bottled water is most likely very acidic, which creates a breeding ground for disease and discomfort, and the tap water is most likely loaded with chlorine, lye and other potentially harmful chemicals. So the same problems which can affect us from poor water sources can also affect our pets.

Therefore, when our pets are introduced to healthier, alkalized, ionized water, just like with people, pets have had amazing results.  Pets who have been drinking Kangen Water® have enjoyed more energy, brighter eyes, shinier coat, and healthier joints. Kangen Water® can be made in a variety of pH levels.  It is recommended that most pets drink the lowest alkaline pH level of 8.5.  Many pets are finding relief to their problems by drinking Kangen Water®.

With Enagic’s SD501 home machine you can make a variety of different waters straight from the top which can be used for all sorts of different pet needs. Some for drinking, some for cleaning, some for disinfecting, so there are many ways that pets will benefit through the use of the waters with different pH levels.

Other Uses: Benefits of the Clean Water and Acid Water

By spraying your pet before they go outside with 2.5 sanitary water you can help to reduce the amount of fleas and ticks that your pet will bring home.  Once home, you can brush their coat with a brush with Clean Water, which is a pH of 7.0.  This will drag out dirt and bacteria, while really moisturizing your pet’s skin.  You can even use 2.5 to spray on furniture and pet bedding to kill fleas and other pathogens.

Kangen’s Clean (Neutral) Water is the perfect choice for your pet because it is right in the range of a pet’s skin pH, which is generally 6.2 to 7.4.  Beauty Water (Acidic Water) is much too acidic for a pet’s skin, and can create more dryness.  But by spraying and shampooing your pet with Clean Neutral Water at 7.0, your pet’s coat can really benefit.  By keeping your pet’s coat clean and clear from chemicals typical in pet shampoos, skin dryness can be eliminated completely.

Also be sure not to use your shampoo on your pet because it will be much too acidic for your pet’s skin.  Choose a shampoo that is slightly alkaline which when combined with the Clean Water, will provide intensive moisture for your pet’s skin and coat.

By adding Kangen Water to your pet’s life, you can minimize trips to the vet’s office and give your pet a long and healthy life.  In fact, many holistic vet offices are installing a Kangen Water machine to provide the perfect water for pets staying over as well as grooming and even for antibacterial application instead of antibiotic ointment.

Not only is Kangen Water® important for us humans, but it is equally important to our animals. In many cases, our pets are exposed to the same type of toxins, poor diet and other factors that contribute to their overall bad health.

Just like people, our animal companions need fresh, clean, healthy water in order to stay at the top of their game.  Did you know that pets are developing debilitating and even fatal diseases and issues at an alarming rate?  These include diabetes, arthritis and weight problems, just to name a few.  Feel free to visit our business site to purchase your own machine, so not only you can take care of your animals, but take care of you as well.

Changing lives one drop at a time!

Rick and Laura’s Story

It was a phone call from the doctor that led Rick and Laura Fleming to open H2O 4 Life Wellness Center in West Reading. In 2015, Laura was told she had four pre-cancerous polyps, and Rick immediately began researching all-natural alternatives for Laura’s treatment. What he discovered was amazing – water that enables people’s bodies to cure themselves. The unique water was created using a machine that is hooked up to the kitchen faucet. The machine transforms ordinary tap water into electrolyzed-reduced water that is high in antioxidants and has the ability to raise a person’s pH level.“ Moving the pH level up even half a point will change your life!” Rick says. “Drinking one 16-oz glass of this water is equivalent to eating five pounds of blueberries.” Rick was sold, but Laura still wasn’t convinced. Rick was so confident that this water could help Laura that – without telling her – he purchased the machine.

Once it arrived, it took a few weeks to convince Laura to try the water. After drinking it for just a week, she felt relief from her varicose veins. Laura says, “I grudgingly had to admit that Rick was right about the water, and I continued to be surprised by the health benefits I saw as I continued drinking it.” By Laura’s next scan, the polyps had disappeared and her IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), which she had suffered from since she was a teenager, was gone. The couple began sharing the water with their friends and neighbors. Rick says, “They began experiencing benefits you wouldn’t imagine.” For example, after just six weeks of drinking the water, Rick’s step-father’s psoriasis disappeared. The Flemings knew they had to make the water available to more people in Berks County. As an entrepreneur with a passion for helping others, Laura convinced Rick that they should open a store. In February 2018, Rick and Laura opened H2O 4 Life Wellness Center in West Reading for people who want to drink the healthiest water in Berks County.

The H2O 4 Life Wellness Center offers affordable monthly memberships for individuals and families, which provide electrolyzed-reduced water that’s high in antioxidants. The couple also offers educational demonstrations, email support, and pH testing of current drinking water. Today, they have over 2000 members visiting monthly and 4 new locations offering memberships from Pennsylvania to Delaware. Their goal is to bring health and wellness through this unique water to more people throughout Berks County and beyond. “We enjoy educating our members on hydration and our water. It is amazing to hear our members tell us how much this water has changed their lives,” Rick says. “They tell us that their skin looks better, they’re sleeping better, their blood pressure is dropping, and so much more. It is so inspirational to us and supports our fundamental desire to bring health and wellness to this area.” The couple shares their lives with a blended family of six children, a dog, and a cat. “They bring joy to our lives beyond imagination,” Laura says.

Rick and Laura invite you to stop by their Wellness Center at 402 Penn Ave. in West Reading to taste the water, see the benefits, and learn how it could change your life. The water we drink in Berks County comes from the Reading Area Water Authority and goes thru a 3-stage filter before getting to the Wellness Center’s machines. It then goes thru the machine and runs over at least seven titanium plates, dipped in platinum. The machine separates the alkaline (good water) from the acidic (bad water). The water is then shocked by 235 watts of electricity, making the water molecules smaller. This water has a shelf life of 72 hours before it goes back to normal. The magic happens in the first 24 – 72 hours and then goes back to very good filtered water.

The Power of Enagic (E.O.W) Strong Acidic Water Hypochlorous Acid Water

Water and The Brain

Water is essential for concentration and mental alertness

Dr. Corinne Allen

Why is Water So Important for the Brain?

The Brain is 85% water. Optimal brain function depends on water and lots of it. Water is what keeps the brain signals going. When the quality of water is compromised the signals are short circuited. Water supports DNA and is the largest single source of energy. The brain has no way to store water and dehydration comes if all the water lost in a day is not replaced and this deficiency is accumulated. Brain cells need 2x more energy than other cells in the body. Water supplies energy. Nerve transmission consumes one-half of all the brain’s energy (nearly 10% of the whole body’s energy). When hydrated, you have more energy. When the brain is functioning on a full reserve of water, it will function at full capacity and you’ll think better and faster. Creativity is boosted.

Brain Injury Causes Inflammation.

Brain inflammation can occur from many causes including: head injuries, premature birth, lack of oxygen, vaccinations, pesticides, accidents, and various infections. The resulting inflammation can provide dysfunction in the body’s ability to detoxify harmful substances. The brain can also exhibit mitochondria that have low energy output and high free radical generation. Often those with brain challenges like Autism and Asperger’s, ADD, depression, panic attacks, head injuries drink almost no water each day, only accentuating the problem in brain functioning.

Dr Corinne Allen says “in Autistics and others where brain inflammation is high, toxins can more easily cross the blood brain, flooding the brain with free radicals.  Kangen Water has been providing participants in her Advanced Learning & Development Institute with a strong source of antioxidants and improved hydration. In her ALDI brain programs, they observed that their expectations have been significantly exceeded by adding Kangen Water to the protocol program, even as much as 35% improvement in the results.”

Why is Water Important in Advanced Learning & Development Institute’s Brain Programs?

Dr Allen adds that “It is most common that those with brain issues exhibited in Autism, Asperger’s, ADD, Dyslexia, Learning Disabilities, Traumatic Brain Injuries, Post Traumatic Stress, and Accidents do not drink enough water. Often those with brain challenges will drink almost no water each day, only accentuating the problems in their brain functioning.”

Instead, those with brain challenges will favor drinking the very beverages that cause more brain dehydration such as beverages containing caffeine, alcohol, or sugar. Dehydration affects all functions in the brain. Mayo clinic says that the average adult loses more than 10 cups of water every day through breathing, perspiring, and eliminating wastes.

Why Does Kangen Water Work So Well in ALDI’s Brain Program?

Dr. Corinne Allen says that her clients have every brain difficulty imaginable. They see clients with many different signs of brain dehydration including: brain fog, afternoon fatigue, focus problems, depression, anger, emotional instability, grouchiness, over sensitive (including auditory, tactile, taste, smell, visual), exhaustion, headaches, sleep issues, stress, picky eaters, or cravings. Among other signs of dehydration that we see are lack of mental clarity and acuity, ability to get along with other people, pessimism and lack of vision, weakened immune system, and mental fatigue.

Even if a person is 1% dehydrated, there is a 5% decrease in cognitive function. A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy, short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing. Studies show that prolonged dehydration of the brain causes cells to begin to shrink.

Water is an important factor in brain food and productivity. Many think that they can drink soda, coffee, milk, or juice and stay hydrated. This is not true. Especially the brain needs water to send signals from the brain to the rest of the body.

Dr. Allen went on to say that “water eliminates toxins from the brain as well as delivering nutrients to the brain. When the brain is fully hydrated, the circuitry works well and functions at optimum levels. Water is essential for concentration and mental alertness. ALDI’s brain program is rigorous. The participants need energy. Most brain injured don’t have much energy.  Kangen water absorbs into the cells and especially the brain so quickly and efficiently that energy is available instantly to keep clients able to take advantage of maximum therapy in a day.”

She added that studies have shown that most people are permanently partially dehydrated. This means that their brain is working considerably below its capacity and potential. When there is brain injury on top of dehydration, the problems associated with dehydration cause more evident and profound symptoms.

Why does Kangen water work so well for the brain?

Since water comprises 85% of the brain and 70% of the body, when the body is hydrated with alkaline, highly ionized and micro clustered water, the ability to reduce acidity and dehydration becomes almost immediate. Water becomes a tool to balance the brain and the body. The brain is only 1/50th of the total body weight and it uses 1/20th of the blood supply. Yet, for optimal brain function, it needs a lot of water since the brain is mostly water. If there is a lack of water, it can cause mild to severe problems in the brain. Dehydration causes the level of energy generated by the brain to be decreased.

Dr Allen says that people who have brain injuries and resulting inflammation in the brain, have dysfunction in their ability to detoxify harmful substances like radiation, toxic metals, chemicals, pesticides, pollution, infections, and other free radicals. They also have mitochondria that have low energy output and high free radical generation.

She added that brain inflammation comes from head injuries, prematurity in infants, lack of oxygen, military receiving trauma from blasts, and infections in the brain. In autistics and other with brain injury where brain inflammation is high, toxins can cross the blood brain barrier easier allowing pollutants, radiation, chemical, pesticides, and toxic metals to flood the brain with their resultant free radicals. To stop the many sources of free radicals attacking the brain and causing brain inflammation, a strong antioxidant and powerful, supportive anti-inflammatory agent like the free radical scavenging, ionized, micro-clustered, alkaline water is needed. In the ALDI brain program, we observed that all our therapies were enhanced significantly by Kangen Water. Kangen Water and its ability to support the body’s ability to deal with brain inflammation is exceptional. The results that we are now able to achieve with Kangen Water is beyond any normal therapeutic expectations.

Dr. Allen is convince that her Advanced Learning & Development Learning Institute uses high alkaline Kangen Water to accentuate all therapies and is producing results in our clients that were never before possible so quickly.

Dr Allen’s results of some of her clients who came to the Advanced Learning and Development Learning Institute

Johnnie Wilkins, severely Autistic 6-year-old

Johnnie came to the brain camp with severe autistic behaviors. He could never be left alone. He didn’t sleep well. He had many seizures in a day. He yelled and screamed a lot. He never minded anyone. He wouldn’t eat healthy food and had to have the refrigerator and cupboards locked at home because his eating was uncontrollable. He wouldn’t drink water.

After introducing Johnnie to Kangen Water, he began to crave water and drank many glasses each day. Kangen Water accelerated all the therapies that Johnnie did each day in the brain camp. Johnnie, even before the first 12 days of the program, was holding someone’s hand every time he went outside. He began to obey and respond to verbal commands. He stopped screaming and fussing all the time. His social skills improved. His seizures stopped. He made eye contact and smiled a lot. His behavior and progress has continued as he does his home therapy and daily drinks a lot of Kangen Water.

His mother said that she was in awe of the final product. She didn’t believe at first that the program would work until she saw how greatly he changed in just the first 12 days.” We accomplished more in 6 days than we had accomplished in 6 years with John’s doctors. Now my prayers are being answered,” said Johnnie’s mother.

Johnnie’s grandma said, “Each day brought a new miracle. Our autistic boy, who was out of control was obedient, demonstrated social skills and began to play like a normal 6 year old. In 12 marvelous days, we saw more progress than the medical community offered in 4 years.”

Yuan Meng, severe brain injury from brain tumor surgery

Yuan has been unable to walk, balance, or care for herself for 9 years, since she had surgery for a cerebellar tumor.

Within the first days of intensive therapy at the ALDI brain camp and drinking Kangen Water, she is able to stand freely on her own, even in front of the bathroom sink to wash her hands without single support. She has visible improvement in her coordination, vision, and clear reduction of her facial paralysis with more steadiness, better coordination, and clearer vision. Starting on day 9, she was also able to stand up on her own without any support. She is now able to make 4-8 small steps on her own on a repeated basis.

Change Your Water, Change Your Life

Why Athletes Love our water!

Athletes Who Drink Kangen Water®

Amazing improvements in performance have taken place for athletes who have introduced Kangen Water® into their lifestyle and training regimen.

Kangen Water® has changed the possibilities for countless athletes.  Marathoners are running better times; hockey players are leaving the ice without body aches;  gymnasts are more flexible.  Even weekend warriors are getting better muscle definition with less strain.

Effects Of Kangen Water®

There are numerous effects that Kangen Water® can provide for muscular movement, performance and flexibility.  Every breath you take, every time a muscle contracts, there are metabolic acids that are produced, such as lactic and pyruvic acid.  The presence of these acids creates a burning sensation in the muscle, muscle fatigue and muscle weakness.  This prevents further exertion of the muscle until recovery takes place.

The more water that you have available in the tissues, the easier it is for these acids to be removed from the muscle tissue.  This can hasten recovery time and lessen micro scar tissue and weakness from the metabolic acids.  When this water is Kangen Water®, then the higher alkalinity will reduce acidic residue even further and faster, with less possibility of injury.  Athletes and trainers know that even small changes in pH can really affect performance, because muscles do their best work in a very narrow pH range.  This is why when metabolites lower pH muscle function is reduced and the production of ATP energy is also reduced.  So the more acidity that is present, the less muscles can contract.  Even the electrical stimulus necessary for peak performance drops significantly.

Fitness and Health

The important thing to know is that just because an athlete is fit, doesn’t mean he’s healthy.  In fact, many athletes suffer from chronic injury, inflammatory disorders, even early cancer.  The high level of metabolic acids chronically present in muscle tissue could be a strong factor.  Combining Kangen alkaline water with an alkaline-dense diet is the answer.  By increasing alkalinity and reducing acidic byproducts, the body’s buffering systems can work more efficiently and effectively.

Getting away from the high-protein, high carb, energy bar, sports drinks pattern and turning to more fruits, vegetables, whole grains and nuts can be more than supplying food; this new pattern can be therapy.

Super Hydration and Athletic Performance

The super hydration that is the hallmark of restructured Kangen Water makes performance amazing.  Electrical signaling is lightening fast, more oxygen gets to the cell increasing VO2 max and acidic waste that is often stored in fat cells is easily removed.  And this type of hydration is unique because it reaches every cell.  Hydration drinks used by athletes have high levels of acidity, which rob the body of alkalinizing minerals and steal vital calcium from bones, cartilage and tissues.

The restructuring of the water also means it is absorbed into tissues faster than any other type of water.  And all the minerals are already present in the water and in a form that every cell has access to.

Wade Lightheart,  3 -Time Canadian Natural Bodybuilding Champion

Wade came back after several years of retirement from body-building to win the Canadian Natural Bodybuilding Championship.

He has written a book about his experience with Kangen Water® and has said that within days of drinking the water, he lost a significant amount of body fat and was able to train more than double his peak volume levels with no pain, no fatigue and no inflammation.

Wade shares his personal success story using Kangen Water® as well as the science behind HOW this remarkable water works. He also presents critical information about hydration, dehydration, acid-alkaline balance, and the role of free radical damage in relation to sports injury.   He shows how others can use Kangen Water® to dramatically speed up recovery times, improve VO2 MAX (oxygen carrying capacity), and decrease the chance of injury.

Susan Lark, MD, The Chemistry of Success: Secrets of Peak Performance

In her book, The Chemistry of Success: Secrets of Peak Performance, Susan Lark, MD, talks about the role of acid/alkaline balance in peak performance and health.  The following is her assessment of  alkaline water.

“The benefits of the alkaline water created through electrolysis far exceed just its ability to gently raise the pH of the cells and tissues of the body and to neutralize acids.  Because the alkaline water has gained a significant number of free electrons through the electrolysis process, it is able to donate these electrons to active oxygen free radicals in the body, thereby becoming a super antioxidant.  By donating its excess free electrons, alkaline water is able to block the oxidation of normal tissue by free oxygen radicals.”

She continues by noting that another significant benefit of the electrolysis process is that the cluster size of the alkaline water is reduced by about 50 percent from the cluster size of tap water.  “This allows ionized alkaline water to be much more readily absorbed by the body, thereby increasing the water’s hydrating ability and its ability to carry its negative ions and alkalizing effect to all the cells and tissues of the body.

“If you are overly acidic, an alkaline water device can provide a safe, gentle, and effective way of restoring the pH balance of all the cells in your body as well as providing excess free electrons to act as super antioxidants,” Lark recommends.

Most people, including most athletes, do not consume enough alkaline mineral-rich foods, such as nuts, fruits, and vegetables.  Instead their diets contain high amounts of acid-forming foods, such as meat, fish, poultry, eggs, and dairy.  Because of this dietary imbalance, they may be at risk for increased acidosis that affects overall health and sports performance.

Since proper hydration is also a key factor in preventing exercise fatigue, consuming ionized Kangen Water® before, during and after exercise can help.

In addition to a compromised performance, not consuming enough water can lead to muscle cramps, general tiredness, and a lack of coordination.

In short, an athlete who is adequately hydrated will almost always perform better than one who is not.
