Please tell Mr. Thompson I say thank you very much from the bottom of my heart…………….and thanks to you as well" Cancer Sponsorship, Debbie Keyser 

“About a year ago I started drinking your Alkaline Water and it really worked wonders for me. I tried “Alkaline Water” from another water company, they use Reverse Osmosis and re-mineralise the water. My back became stiff and more painful than usual. I developed wrist pain and it made me constipated even though I was drinking more of it than usual. I decided to go back onto your water to see what would happen. Within a week my back pain was virtually gone, my wrist was better and my tummy was working normally. Even though I was drinking less.” Teresa Welthagen, Centurion

“My name is Modipa. I just want to share my experience with designer alkaline water. Ever since using this water my tummy has flattened, it clears heart burn right away I give it to my five-year-old daughter when she complains about stomach-ache and it helps her. I feel energized.” Modipa Tsiu, Kosmosdal

“I have not been using the water for too long and I don’t drink the daily amount that I should.  But since I have been drinking the water my heartburn is less, It’s not completely gone but I am confident that if I increase my daily intake the heartburn will be completely gone.  There is a Definite improvement, I also have a deep pain in my bones and I don’t know how to explain this but it feels like my bones are physically in pain, Since I have been drinking the water there is no pain at all.   The Designer Water team have a very informative website.” Anneline Pieters  - Braamfontein,

“I am very fit so I cannot say that I feel a difference in my body but I have lost 2kg’s from 76 – 74. I drive all the way from Roodepoort to Pretoria to buy Designer Water, I have been doing it for months and will continue doing so.” Bob Walker Campbell – Gauteng

“I started working for designer water in June 2016, I never understood the power of water until I joined the designer water team. After doing a live blood analyses and actually seeing what is happening in my body I quickly realised that water is just not water.  I have seen how designer water can improve what is happening in my blood within 1 hour of taking Designer Water (alkaline water) the results has blown me away!    Even if you don’t physically feel immediate changes or results -  your blood does!  It is a pretty good feeling to also hear the positive stories as customers comes in to refill their water. It’s great to be part of a company that helps thousands of customers daily.” Juanita Van Staden, Branch Manager Designer Water

“I am Anaemic and the water balanced my body.  I suffer from eczema, when I was introduced to Designer Water and started using it on a daily basis I noticed that my skin was clearing up and my skin was not so dry anymore. The benefit is that not only did my skin clear but I have more energy. I wake up every morning energized, it feels like my brain and body is breathing.   I also drink a lot of water before I start menstruating and I don’t have as much pain like I did before.   Designer Water is the purest form of water closest to heaven.” Nonku – Gauteng

It was removed but after the operation he had a burning sensation when he urinated – since drinking Designer water there is no burning sensation when he urinates and he has been drinking our water for only 3 weeks” Anneline Pieters - Braamfontein,

Why Does Alkaline Water Benefit Your Health?

The three main reasons that make it different are:

  1. Alkaline water helps to reduce inflammation
  2. Alkaline water helps to reduce acidity in your body
  3. Alkaline water has been clinically proven to hydrate better


Alkaline Water produced by a Chanson Water Ionizer offers anti-oxidant protection which makes it anti-inflammatory


Alkaline water contains more bio-available alkaline minerals than regular water. It has the ability to help the body buffer excess acidity.

Micro-Clustered Water

Water from our Chanson Water Ionizers have the smallest water molecule size possible, this gives it superior hydration to regular water.

Drinking the right kind of water could have a significant benefit for your health.  There are  over 40 studies on the benefits of alkaline water that show there are benefits that you don’t get with plain water. Alkaline water has been shown to positively affect many different parts of your body at the same time. For example: When you drink alkaline water for weight loss, you’re also detoxing. While both of those things are happening, your rate of bone loss decreases, as does your blood pressure. All this happens as beneficial probiotics flourish in your gut, which is why in clinical testing, 88% of people with mild digestive upset found gradual relief from just drinking alkaline water!

Weight lost: 12 pounds in two months

A study called The effect of daily consumption of 2 liters of electrolyzed water for 2 months on body composition and several physiological parameters in four obese subjects on obese, middle aged people showed the benefits of alkaline water for weight loss. Patients in the study lost 12 pound in two months, just by drinking alkaline water! There was no will power or diet changes involved, they just lost the weight. There’s several reasons alkaline water could spur weight loss: Better hydration may increase your metabolic rate, so you burn calories faster. Alkaline water supports beneficial probiotic microflora in the gut, and those beneficial bacteria break food down into the form needed by your body to produce energy. If you have weak probiotic microflora, then harmful anaerobes will turn your digested food into the form that your body stores as fat.

Hydration: 17% Better than regular water

Multiple studies done at Montana State University have shown that one of the benefits of alkaline water for both athletes and everyone else is that it hydrates faster and more thoroughly than plain water. The studies found that alkaline water re-hydrated athletes faster than regular water, and that it hydrated them more thoroughly than plain water. The Centers for Disease Control have found that about 3 out of 4 Americans suffer from chronic dehydration. Chronic dehydration can lead to many health problems such as constipation and migraine headaches. So chances are, getting hydrated with alkaline water will make a difference in your health that you can feel.

Liver health: Hangover help and protection from oxidative damage

Alkaline water has been shown to have the potential to help you detox from a hangover. It works by breaking down hydrogen peroxide, a harmful oxidant, into water and oxygen. Hydrogen peroxide is a metabolic byproduct of alcohol metabolism that kills liver cells. By breaking it down, alkaline water helps protect the liver. At the same time, it helps rehydrate the body, and dehydration is a major part of what causes the morning after headache that comes with a hangover

Digestive health: 88% of people with mild digestive upset found relief

Clinical trials from Japan showed that 88% of people with chronic mild digestive upset found gradual relief from their symptoms just by drinking alkaline water. There’s a couple of reasons for this, alkaline water:

  1. Neutralizes pepsin – The enzyme that triggers GERD
  2. Contains magnesium hydroxide, the active ingredient in Milk of Magnesia.
  3. Supports healthy probiotic microbes in the gut

The painful burning of gastroesophageal reflux is triggered by an enzyme called pepsin. Alkaline water permanently neutralizes pepsin, so the harmful burning sensation of GERD is never triggered. Alkaline water is actually the only known safe method for controlling GERD. Long term use of the medications commonly taken for it called proton pump inhibitors, have been linked to dementia and alzheimer’s.

Magnesium hydroxide works to counteract acidity to stop the painful burning of acid indigestion. Alkaline water acts to both counter some acidity, and dilutes acidity at the same time.

The beneficial probiotic microbes in your gut are called anaerobes, and they hate oxygen-rich environments. Alkaline water supplies antioxidant hydroxyl ions, which act to displace oxygen in the gut. This helps tilt the balance in your gut away from the harmful anaerobes, and towards the beneficial probiotic microbes. The researchers in Japan that conducted clinical trials on alkaline water observed several different changes that showed this change in gut microflora was happening, including

  • Reduced flatulence
  • Healthier stools
  • Reduced constipation

Detoxification from 10 heavy metals

Two Swedish studies showed that the pH of the water you drink can protect you from heavy metals, specifically mercury. They showed that Swedish women who drank water from wells that was alkaline absorbed calcium, magnesium, and other beneficial nutrients from the alkaline water they drank. Women who drank water from wells that had acidic water absorbed higher amounts of acidic elements like mercury and boron. The results were definitive, which lead the researchers to suggest that one of the important benefits of alkaline water is that it may protect against the harmful effects of mercury.

Clinical research in the US showed that people who were new to alkaline water discharged 10 different heavy metals in their urine after starting to drink alkaline water. The reason it works is that raising the pH level of your urine increases renal clearance of toxic metals such as fluoride and mercury.

Benefits of Alkaline water: It may protect against Alzheimer's and dementia

Oxidative stress, which is caused by free radicals and Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) is a major contributing factor to Alzheimer's disease and dementia. Your brain cells are especially sensitive to oxidative damage, and as you age, your body’s defenses against oxidative damage decline.

Antioxidant supplements can’t protect your brain from oxidation, because they are blocked by the blood/brain barrier – a membrane that all blood entering the brain must pass through. Alkaline water isn’t blocked, so it passes right through the blood/brain barrier and into the brain where it can break down harmful oxidants before they have a chance to destroy brain cells.

Alkaline water safer than drugs for bone health

The strongest clinical proof of the benefits of alkaline water is for bone health. Multiple studies have shown that drinking alkaline water lowers enzyme markers in the blood that doctors use to measure bone loss. This bone-saving effect has been shown in both young and older people. Drinking alkaline water is quite literally one of the best things you can do for better bone health.

There are side effects to the bisphosphonate bone drugs like Boniva, which are commonly prescribed for bone health. These drugs help for a short term, less than five years. But after five years, they can have serious side effects such as jaw necrosis: Rotting away of the jaw bone. Alkaline water is the only thing that is beneficial for bone health that has no side effects.

Even milk has problems, milk acidifies your body when you drink it, which interferes with your ability to absorb calcium. This has lead some researchers to speculate that middle-aged people who drink milk for bone health may actually be doing more harm than good.

What’s wrong with milk? Middle-aged and older people’s bodies’ ability to neutralize acidity declines with age. A younger person’s body buffers the acidity in milk so they can absorb the calcium in it. An older person’s  may not be able to buffer that acidity well enough for that person to benefit from the calcium in milk. If your digestive tract is too acidic, your body doesn’t absorb calcium very well.

The calcium you need for better bone health is easier for your body to absorb from water than it is from food. According to The World Health Organization, calcium is 30% easier for your body to absorb from water than it is from food. Because of this, the WHO recommends that you get 10 – 20% of your daily needs for calcium from the water you drink. Alkaline water for a water ionizer is an excellent source of highly bioavailable calcium.

Half of a pH could save your life!

What harm could half of a pH cause? It could be a sign that you have Metabolic Syndrome: A “constellation of physiological problems happen when your body is in a constant state of low-grade metabolic acidosis. People who have metabolic syndrome are slowly dying, their organs are shutting down as they are destroyed by acidity. The five symptoms of metabolic syndrome are:

  1. High Blood Pressure
  2. Obesity
  3. Blood Sugar Problems
  4. Bone Loss
  5. Kidney Stones

The common factor in all these symptoms is low urine pH balance. The difference between having all of the symptoms of metabolic syndrome, and having none? It’s just a half of a pH!

Benefits of Alkaline Water for Cholesterol reduction

Another one of the benefits of alkaline water which has been documented in studies is cholesterol reduction. Alkaline water has been shown to be especially effective at reducing the levels of the two most harmful forms of cholesterol: Triglycerides and Very Low-Density Lipoprotein (V-LDL) cholesterol. Some health experts who have studied alkaline water’s effect on cholesterol believe that alkaline water helps by improving the body’s uptake of magnesium.  Just like calcium, your body absorbs magnesium from water 30% faster and easier than it does from food or supplements

Benefits of Alkaline water and Gatorade: Supercharged workouts

This really works! Drinking alkaline water mixed with an electrolyte drink mix such as Gatorade, will supercharge your workout. A study done on athletes who drink alkaline water mixed with Gatorade were able to work out significantly harder and longer. The study showed that It lowered the perceived effort that the athletes felt they needed to accomplish a workout. As a result, the athletes in the study simply had more energy and could go harder before hitting their max.

It works because drinking alkaline water speeds absorption of electrolytes into your system. It’s higher pH balance also boosts the muscles ability to neutralize and  flush out oxidative wastes. This means that you can go harder before your muscles start to feel that performance-robbing burn.

Could our water help you?

Everybody’s body is different, but one thing is for sure: Alkaline water is good for your health, you get many different benefits of alkaline water just by drinking it. And here’s the good news: You can finance a water ionizer for less than you may be paying for bottled water right now! Imagine drinking the healthiest water on earth and saving money.

“We have a Chanson counter-top unit and are on City water (Toledo, OH) and use the three city prefilters. Recently, the city was unable to treat our lake Erie water and the EPA urged everyone to not drink the water. Our Chanson unit pulled us through with no sickness.

I’m 78 years old and have no pains anywhere…My wife and I have been on [ionized alkaline water] about 15 months and have not even had a cold.”

James Marsh, Toledo, OH

I would like to start to tell you that my husband & I purchased the Chanson water machine due to him being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 12-2010. We were told by Dr. after Dr. that it would only be 3 or 4 months that he had to live. Well, we bought the Chanson, both of us have only drank this water. No soda, junk drinks etc. My husband lived for 3 years of fighting pancreatic cancer. I also need to say that I haven’t had a cold since we bought the machine.
After he passed away I moved into our daughters home with 5 children. In March 2013, 1 child came home with pink eye, everyone one in the house got pink eye except for “ME”. I called Chanson water & asked for what I could do to “NOT” get this.. I sprites my eyes & face every hour. “I NEVER GOT PINK EYE”. I so believe that since I was drinking Chanson ionized alkaline water that “MY” body could fight off the “PINK EYE”. I am so THANKFUL for “CHANSON”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
To all concerned,
This is our one year anniversary owning a Chanson VS-70 Water Ionizer and I have to say that I am very pleased with the performance of this machine. It is very easy to operate and is very consistent on water quality. The instillation of the Ionizer was simple and straight forward. We watched the installation video first, then read over the manual before installing the machine and both were very easy to follow. Everything that we needed was included in the package and we did not encounter any problems installing the machine. 
After a few days of using the ionizer, I called costumer service with a few question about the Ionizer.  They answered immediately and had a technician call me back to answer my questions. He was very professional and helpful and was able to successfully walk me through the setup of the computer and make sure that it was programmed correctly. I was very impressed with the service and pleased with the outcome!! 
Now that a year has passed, I can see a profound difference in my family’s health and well being. The water Ionizer is the only change that we made in our household so I give it credit for all the health benefit that we has noticed. We noticed immediately that the water not only tasted better, it was more hydrating. Instead of forcing my kids to drink water they seemed to crave it. We  never leave the house without filling a water bottle first. After a few months, I noticed that my husbands fingernails started to straighten out; they used to have deep indents and grooves in them. My daughters complexion has cleared, my son lost twenty pounds and I haven’t been sick in over a year. That’s just the most profound, the list goes on! 
The one thing that surprised me the most was how often I use the acid water. There are so many more uses for it then there is for the alkaline water. I use it everyday throughout the house and garden. I use it for hygiene, first aide and for making tinctures with herbs. Again, the list goes on!!
So, thanks for a great year, I am so glad that I made that purchase!

We researched ionizers for 6 mos prior to purchasing your Miracle unit 3 years ago. We bought the H3 filter and accessories with it. We were very pleased with Ronny’s videos as they gave the best information available about all the different ionizers on the market . We have used the Miracle daily except when we sent it in to be cleaned. It has worked very well with no trouble. We now do not buy toxic house cleaning products as we use the acid water on everything from the counters and our skin to the dog.

They have all benefited. Susan’s fungus under her toe nail is gone. Our general health was good before but we believe we are even better now. I travel a great deal and I am not affected by the airport “bug” at all. We feel our immune system is stronger now. I would also like to say the customer service has been very good. Our questions have always been answered by friendly and polite staff. Thank you for your water products and tell Ronny to keep up the good work.

Wanted to let you know that I have been using 2.5 pH water for wound care, and 9.0 – 9.5 for drinking and cooking. I have an autoimmune disorder that has created an ulcer on my calf and it won’t heal. I’ve seen wonderful results in just a few weeks using 2.5 water. Giving the 9.0 water to our dog. He seems to drink more water and has more energy. Both myself and my husband drink it and have notices more urination, feeling more energetic and just feeling better overall.

The acid water is used for wound care, my husband gargles with it and we use it to clean around the house. I also use the acid water in conjunction with the cleaning and skin care products. I feel that the money spent on our Chanson Miracle Ionizer was a good investment. On a scale from 1-10, I rate the taste a 10+ which has led me to drink more water since getting my ionizer. I drink around 64oz of 9.0 pH water on a daily basis.

“For the past few years, our Eclectus Parrot looks like he was run over by a lawn mower. We tried changing his food, having the pest company spray outside only, remove all candles, having a pet sitter when we are gone, all with no success.

Then, I thought I would give him ‘standard alkaline’ (the 3rd level) Chanson water, and in about a week he was improving, his feathers are about 95% perfect now!”

Also, with the purchase cost of my parrot to have been about $2,000 and having tried everything I could find to clear up his feather problem, where I to have known that Chanson water could solve this problem, I would have purchased a Chanson system just to solve this problem alone!

- Rick, Las Vegas NV

“I am 50 years old and recently had a quadruple bypass. I started drinking the high alkaline water 6 months after my operation and noticed the anti-oxidizing qualities quite quickly. I sleep better, have more energy and my body craves this amazing water. I am more regular and feel great.

I also use the Chanson ionized acid water to control foot odor. I spray my boots and shoes on a regular basis and spray my feet morning and night. I find it amazing that the simplicity of Chanson ionized acid water has made such an amazing difference. I no longer suffer with bad foot odor.”

-- W. Pidborochynski

“Within just a few days of installing the water ionizer on my rainwater tank outlet I could feel a huge difference to my health. Perhaps this was partly because I was enjoying drinking the water so much that I was easily drinking the number of glasses of it that I had tried for so long – before the ionizer – to consume.
But it was always a bit of a chore. Now the water tasted so ‘sweet’ that I just drank it like a fish!
The next thing that happened was actually that I got a big pimple on my chin, something I’ve only ever had as an adult when I’ve done longish juice fasts … but on this point I was still eating pretty much the same food as before I got the ionizer.

The article that Chanson Alkaline Water sent on about detoxing really helped me to get through this little phase, and to understand why this had happened. Next though, my appetite started changing. I’d never had much of a sweet tooth, but now I found that I didn’t even want savory snacks between meals. That’s a dramatic change for someone who’d always relished cheesy crackers and salty nuts and chips!

And what’s more my coffee consumption dropped from one or two a day to one or two a week – and even then I find I’m finding I’m only really having coffee to be polite when someone offers me it. The craving just went away. My beverage of choice is now definitely alkaline water. Indeed, when I go to the coast these days I unplug the ionizer and take it with me in the back of the car, and on day trips I always fill up a bottle or two from my machine so I don’t have to be without alkaline water any longer than I need to.

My energy levels have definitely gone up – way beyond what I would have thought possible – with the result that I’m able to do the regular exercise that I’d wanted to do for years. Basically, I think the alkaline water kick-started a ‘virtuous cycle’ of health changes that are still working their way through my system, three months after getting the ionizer.

Finally, I’ll say that before and after my purchase I got terrifically useful advice on water ionization. They provide a genuinely excellent quality of service.”

“In December 1986 I was introduced to a water ionizer by a friend of mine in Virginia. She told me that the alkaline water from this ionizer would lower my blood pressure if I drank 5 cups of it daily. In those days I was taking 20mg of Vasotec a day to maintain my blood pressure at around 140/90. Vasotec was my third kind of blood pressure pill. The doctor had to change my blood pressure pills twice because of different kinds of side effects. I never liked the idea of having to take any pills “for the rest of my life”.

That’s what the doctor told me when he initially prescribed the blood pressure pills for me. My friend didn’t know exactly why the blood pressure would come down except for the fact that she knew it worked for many people. Trusting her sincerity and knowing she was a registered nurse, I bought the ionizer and started to drink high pH alkaline water. As I was drinking the alkaline water I monitored my blood pressure. I reduced the amount of Vasotec gradually as the blood pressure started to come down. After six weeks, I stopped taking Vasotec altogether.
My blood pressure came down to 130/85 without my pills. In the meantime, over a period of two years, I lost about 20 pounds without any special diets or exercises. Lately I am noticing that my eyesight is improving.”

1. I Lost 15lbs. within 5 weeks of drinking alkaline water, with no cardio involved; although drinking the water motivated me to start eating right again. Before my knee surgery I tried to eat right and stay motivated, but I was never able to keep the weight off even when I did eat right.

On the 3 incisions from my surgery I sprayed the strong Chanson ionized acid water to keep it sterile because I had an infection, and the Chanson ionized acid water cleared the infection rapidly and also healed the incisions quickly. For the swelling I used a cold water machine. It felt good and the swelling was slightly reduced. Ronnie suggested that I soak a towel with strong alkaline water, and to leave the towl dripping wet and place it on my knee for 15 minutes. When I did this I felt a tingling sensation on my knee (kind of cool feeling), after the 15 minutes I removed the towel; the swelling went down drastically and my knee moved without stiffness or pain.

Migraine Headaches:
I have a chronic ear condition from multiple ear ruptures from my Military service, and also from training and competing in Jiu jitsu, wrestling, and Muay Thai. My ear does not drain properly and the fluids build up a great deal of pressure. Since drinking Chanson Alkaline Water I have had no migraine headaches, and also the build up has been reduced drastically.
