Occasionally people experience “cleansing” symptoms when drinking Kangen Water®. These are typically caused by the body releasing stored toxins and acidic wastes. If you experience any symptoms such as headaches, skin eruptions, loose bowels, nausea, metallic taste, flu symptoms, fatigue, etc. when you start drinking Kangen Water®, you should increase the amount of water you are drinking to help neutralize and flush the toxins from your system. If you experience these symptoms after increasing the pH of the water you are consuming, you can return to the pH setting where you did not experience the symptoms and increase the amount of water you consume until these symptoms stop. Everybody finds their own drinking preference with this water. There is no prize for getting to the pH 9.5 level faster than someone else!
