Seven or eight years ago I
was introduced to the product that is now called Ion Stabilized Oxygen.
What first attracted me was its claims, backed up by a barrage of laboratory
tests, showing its effectiveness in purifying water.
I was looking for a safe alternative
to using bleach or iodine to treat water. When I learned about Ion I felt
it was a safe solution to my health concerns and began using it to store my own
Several years ago I came down with a
terrible flu, and was bedridden for three days with a headache and lower back
pain. Stan Smith, an international distributor for ION happened to call,
and he suggested that I take 50 drops of ION with a little juice and repeat the
dosage again in about two hours.
Despite my skepticism about
using ION medicinally, at that point I was ready to take any suggestion, but the
results totally astounded me. Within 5 minutes of taking the first dose,
my headache and back pain were gone.
I later learned that results this
dramatic were uncommon, and that ION is generally used at the onset of the flu
to speed recovery, and alleviate the symptoms. Now, ION is the first thing
I reach for when I want to treat an illness. I've seen first hand what it
can do for me.
My staff and I get several calls
a week from customers sharing stories of how ION has worked for them.
I've included some of them below.
Some people have used ION to treat
their pets. One woman in California reported her horse had eaten some
poisonous weeds and was lying down, barely moving, and half dead. she gave
it a half bottle of ION! Within a few hours the horse was up, walking
around, and fully recovered. Another woman reported putting it in her
horse's water, and applying it once to the gash on its leg. The wound
healed so quickly that her veterinarian asked her what she had done.
Two people reported to me that their
dentists, despite prescribing massive doses of antibiotic, had been unable to
solve their problems with gum disease, but when they started brushing their
teeth and rinsing their mouth with ION their problems cleared up in a matter of
One man in my own town was unable to
fight-off a bladder infection, even after several rounds of antibiotics.
His problems cleared up after three days of taking ION drops.
Many of our customers take
ION twice daily in a little juice to boost their immune systems or to increase
their energy. Many tell us they don't get sick since they have started
their daily regimen.
ION has been found to stop wasp and
bee stings within minutes. It detoxifies mosquito and black widow bites,
kills harmful bacteria on open sores, and helps speed up the body's healing
process. If you add it to vegetable or dairy drinks, such as milk, it
helps keep it fresh for days or even weeks. I could go on and on with
accounts of how ION helped fight sore throats, strep, spider bites, food
poisoning, as well as many other ailments including some very life threatening
A word of caution:
Though ION is completely safe, with no harmful side effects, if you are diabetic
or have a lot of toxins in your body you should start out on a very low dose of
ION and increase it gradually.
If you take more ION than your body
can handle you may get a headache or suffer from diarrhea. Lemon juice is
known to counteract the effects of ION drops, and will often resolve these
temporary side effects.
Here is the reason ION works:
Oxygen is a natural component in nature that must be present to kill all harmful
anaerobic bacteria and viruses. It must also be present to carry nutrition
to the cells, act as a catalyst in metabolism, and detoxify and expel toxins
(wastes) from the body.
Over forty years ago several
scientists understood that oxygen was the most important factor for good
health. They patented a stabilized oxygen, and over the next few years
refined the formula so that it contained more oxygen and no
This formula has been subjected to
numerous laboratory and university tests, which
show that it is effective, stable, and non-toxic.
The key factor in using ION
is that the level of oxygen be so high that it can have an effect in raising the
amount of oxygen in the body- so it can be effective killing anaerobic bacteria,
viruses, and in detoxifying the blood.
This improved formula of stabilized
oxygen has been marketed for water purification since 1969, and is used by
thousands for the additional health benefits we've discussed above. The
ION label has been used since 1995.
ION makes only one claim, that all
its benefits are as stated in the laboratory tests
of this formula, and there are no other components in this product other than
For those who have discovered the
wonderful benefits of stabilized oxygen, it is truly one of nature's miracles.
