The history of Kangen water is a very rich history that started with very tragic beginnings.
During the 1950’s Japan was struck by severe acid rains that came from China. Determined to bring healthy pure water to their people, scientist began working on a solution. Searching far and wide, they searched from the Himilayans and throughout India in search of a natural healing source.
Miraculously, they found healing waters that were alkaline and hexagonal. Armed with this secret, they returned to Japan and constructed the first commercial water ionizer that would revolutionize our health.
Kangen water is a water that is alkaline, hexagonal, and antioxidant. This means that it contains the same healing properties as the natural healing water sources we often hear about around the world.
In Japanese, Kangen means “return to origin.” This origin refers to the natural origin before the pollution of our waters and bodies. This water is unique in the world and is a registered trademark by Enagic – a company based out of Osaka, Japan.
During the 1800’s a man by the name of Michael Faraday invented a process known as electrolysis. This is what happens when water is separated into oxygen and hydrogen molecules.
Later on during the 1940’s the Russians would further develop this invention and by the 1950’s the Japanese became the first to commercialize what we now know as a water ionizer.
In 1966 the ministry of rehabilitation and health of Japan confirmed that alkaline water was beneficial for one’s health and medical use. Since then over one-hundred Japanese hospitals have administered and used this water to their patients.
In 2001, Mr. Hironari Oshiro emerged with a company in Japan by the name of Toyo Aitex. Up until 2001, Toyo Aitex company was the company producing this amazing medical water in hospitals all over Japan.
They even gained a reputation as the best water ionizer company out of 30 other Japanese water ionizer companies. Mr. Oshiro then became the president of the Enagic company and the company was born.
In 2003, Enagic entered the American market through the city of Los Angeles. The first conference was held in Japanese with English translators and all the documents were in Japanese.
Today, over 4,000 Enagic water systems are sold per month in the USA and the numbers are steadily climbing. Known for the Gold Standard, Enagic are certified by ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. They also hold various environmental awards along with medical certificates from Japan.
Mr. Oshiro’s vision is a phenomenal one to say the least. He calls this vision: True Health. He hopes that one day everyone will benefit from having a Kangen system in their home and that illness will some day be a thing of the past.
