  • Alkalizing with Kangan Water?

    Has anyone tried this water? A friend of mine swears by this stuff and says thta it will help me? I have been reading a lot about alkalining our bodies and it will help the IC symptoms. Any suggestions?

    You can read about ionized water at My suggestion is to talk with your doctor about this.

      I have a co-worker who knows about my IC that has a Kangen water machine at her house. She brought me water for two weeks and I didn't feel any change at all so I went back to my Arrowhead bottles. It may work for you though- it's worth a try at least.

        I read somewhere on here that they will bring you samples for a while before you go thru the expense (and it IS expensive) of buying the machine. It can't hurt to try.

          Alkaline Water

          I recently started drinking Essentia water because it has a ph balance of 9.5 and I can feel a huge difference. I also got some test strips and not surprisingly, I was pretty acidic. I also started taking coral calcium.
          But Im really confused about the whole alkaline diet. I've heard that bringing the body back to a balanced ph can help with IC but the alkaline diet and the IC diet don't always coincide.
          For instance, the alkaline diet says that lemons and limes have a very high alkaline level when metabolized by the body, even though they are an acidic food. I have yet to try a lemon out of complete fear of flaring, but by becoming more balanced, I have to say it is helping quite a bit.
          Oh, I did try a few tangerines and had no problems. Yay, small victory!
          If anyone knows more about this, I would love to hear it!

            High PH water has worked for me in the past. I am in the middle of a bad flare right now and frustrated. Started drinking the water again this week!
