Patient discussion about watering

Q. Can you develop and allergy to water? I know it sounds strange, but in the past month every time my 4 y/o nephew takes a bath his hands and feet get itchy. Or at least that’s what he complains about. At first my sister thought he was just making it up – you know how kids don’t like to shower, but now she is going to take him to the doctor.

A. Aquagenic pruritis is a condition that results after exposure to water of any temperature. Symptoms develop within minutes and may include itching, burning or even a prickly sensation. Most times there are no skin changes, although a faint, bumpy, itchy red rash may occur. The symptoms last from 10 minutes to several hours, and usually are experienced on one or more of the following skin surfaces: Chest, back, arms or legs. While the exact cause of this condition is uncertain, some investigators suggest it is a result of extreme skin sensitivity (but not allergy) to an added ingredient (chlorine, fluoride, others) or mineral present in the water.

Q. Is drinking too much water harmful? Is there a condition like “water overdose”?

A. Drinking more water then you are used to is very good for you. But of course if you over do it it’s damaging. Drinking way too much will make you urinate more, this means you will also loose vital minerals in the urine like potassium and sodium. This can even lead to death.


Q. Has anyone used Kangen Water? Its alkaline with high antioxidants and micro clustered oxygen molecules (Japanese Technology) Enagic Manufactures it.

A. on a site (http://kangen-water.ws/) they say to clean up the organic waste which is in your body, but they say nothing about the anorganic stuff. so the question is for what it should be usefull, when it works only partially? if you like to drink a healthy water to keep your body in good shape, buy a still water in glass bottles - not plastic because this is anorganic - write on the bottle a good quality like "love", "harmony", "peace", "purity" and so on it. with this word you will "charge" the water with this quality. wait a day before you drink the water. you will so bring the water in your cells in resonance with this water and so impregnate yourself with the quality you have chosen. for more information about this, consult Dr. Masaru Emoto's website http://www.masaru-emoto.net/english/e_ome_home.html . Water is not just H²O!
