The Secret of Wellness Shower System is the `enhancement stage', a scientifically crafted process that gently works to produce the world's best water. This enhancement process is specifically designed to:
Retain beneficial minerals
Elute sub-micron traces of trace minerals
Stabilize and balance pH
Enhance water solubility
The Enhancement Stage of the Wellness Shower System
Water is directed through multiple layers of rare Japanese minerals, high gauss magnets and proprietary ceramics before the enhancement process is completed.Wellness Filter has been shown to differ from regular tap or filtered water in four ways:
1. Increased solubility - NEC Corporation independently tested Wellness Filtered water and found it to have an unexpected increase in solubility...over 100%. This means that it is more capable of dissolving compounds whether they are vitamins entering your body or dirt on your clothes.
2. Increased hydration - Wellness Filter water hydrates the body faster and also leaves the body faster. This improves water's critical ability to aid the body in transport of essential nutrients and the elimination of waste byproducts.
3. Addition of trace minerals - The mineral media in each filter is designed to slowly release critical trace minerals such as silica, magnesium, and yttrium. These trace minerals have been found to improve cellular function and now added to many nutritional supplements.
4. Negative ions - Each Wellness Filter® releases naturally-formed, negative ions into each quantity of water produced. These ions act like antioxidants do and neutralize free radicals...a principal cause of aging and certain diseases like cancer...inside and outside your body.
How do you create Nature's spring water process so you can enjoy this quality of water at home?
Magnetite - Nature's Energy
Developed over 20 years ago in Japan by Haru Naito, a famous physiologist who coupled purification and enhancement technologies into this award winning water filter. Designed to produce purified and enriched water, this patented system has received the praise and endorsement of institutions, physicians, universities, researchers and users in Japan, USA, Australia, New Zealand, China, Canada, and Korea. The Wellness Filter offers you a quality and essence of water that only a selected few have previously had...water the way nature intended it. After years of experimenting with various combination Haru finally perfected the art of natural water enhancement. By using an array of carefully positioned ceramic magnets and surrounding them with magnetite, the same iron rich rock found at the world's great springs, the resulting magnetic field was exactly the effect Haru was looking for. As water passes through this field the complex hydrogen bonding network within the H2O matrix is temporarily altered and its hydrogen bonds create a water that is more soluble - 'wetter water'
This is the water your body craves...
Importantly, Haru found that the strength of each magnet had to be perfectly aligned in order to recreate the effect he was looking for. Too much energy or an incorrectly aligned field produced an inferior water. This is the reason why the Wellness process is patent protected. But Haru was still not finished.
Most people would have been satisfied with discovering the secret of creating `wetter' water. Not Haru. He passionately wanted to create the best water for his athletes and the world. So his research continued..
Far-Infrared - Tenko-Seki
Haru discovered something else during his years of investigation. It is called `Tenko-Seki', a rare mineral with some very special properties unknown to most people. Few have even heard of it or know anything about its remarkable qualities....
SGES Tenko-SekiThis mineral emits high frequency far infrared energies in a specific wavelength. Far-infrared energies are known for their very powerful healing and detoxifying effect on living things. Today, thousands of health care professionals use infrared rays to help cleanse and detoxify cells.
But who would have thought it could be applied to WATER?
Dr. Serge Jurasunus, a famous Portuguese cancer specialist, published a paper on Tenko-Seki in the June 2000 issue of The Townsend Letter (one of America's leading alternative medical newsletter) and said this;
"Tenko-Seki far infrared rays shorten the cluster chain of water... increases specific gravity and hence water adherence to cell surfaces... [Tenko-Seki] is active at the cellular level - the body's ultimate defense system."
Townsend Letter (Issue #203 June 2000)
While Dr. Jurasunus was referring to the use of Tenko-Seki in a special ceramic detox bath, Haru had actually discovered the ability of Tenko-Seki to enhance water many years before.
After years of experimentation Haru went on to incorporate Tenko-Seki and other unique volcanic minerals in order to further perfect the Wellness process. When combined into a single system these volcanic minerals produce a water that is independently hailed for its rare qualities.
Bakuhan (pron. Baak-oo-han) is a unique volcanic stone that is the only mineral ever to have been officially certified by the Japanese Ministry of Health as a medicinal mineral1.
Bakuhan, exclusive to Wellness, naturally balances pH and imparts unique structural properties that contributes to the the unique 'Wellness effect'.
Taicho (pron. Tie-Ch-oh) has been used for thousands of years by the Japanese to inhibit bacterial and algal growth in water. Taicho also emits mild far-infrared red rays that help to neutralize any remaining pesticides or chloro-organics.
Quartz CrystalsQuartz Crystals
This special quartz layer is the final step in the Wellness enhancement journey. Specially fashioned crystal micro-balls further improves waters wetting ability whilst imparting a natural sweet taste to the water.
(This certification carries no force outside of Japan. Wellness makes no medical claims for Bakuhan or the water produced.)
Two key reasons why a Wellness Shower exceeds the performance and lifespan of cheaper shower filters
Wellness Shower Filter 1. Advanced Media
We use advanced KDF-55 and 85 filtration media which is highly effective at reducing chlorine and other chemicals and significantly extends carbon life. Most ordinary shower filters can't afford to use KDF.
2. One-touch Backwash
A unique feature of the Wellness Shower is the exclusive 'One-touch Backwash' system. Just once a month for 30-seconds is all takes to regenerate the Wellness Shower, returning it to a 'like new' condition.
This unique feature (the same backwash process that is found in our MG-III whole of home filters) actually regenerates the carbon and KDF media inside the filter whilst at the same time flushing dirt and sediment build-up safely down the drain.
Why choose a Wellness Shower?
If you are serious about good health then removing chlorine from your bathroom is a must and choosing a Wellness Shower Filter to do it is the best decision you can make. With regular backwashing you can expect the Wellness Shower to last up to two-years. See the estimated guidelines right. This not only gives you unbeatable value, if you are considering a premium health product like Wellness our Shower is also the ideal way to experience the benefits of Wellness enhanced water for an easily manageable price.
The first sub-stage utilizes a patented magnetic induction stage that drops the surface tension of the water and increases the solubility. This process is also known as magnetic structuring of water and is well documented. This is the stage that significantly increases the transmissivity and solubility for the water.
Water with an increased level of solubility is able to hold an increased level of dissolved substances in it or prevent existing dissolved solids from plating out (anti-scaling). The combined effect is a super-hydrating water that will accelerate its transport (and whatever is dissolved in it) through membranes into the body as well as out of the body.
The second sub-stage consists of a proprietary ceramic media that induces reduced or negative ions into the water. This material is classified as a Far-Infrared Emitting Ceramic and is made of a proprietary blend of volcanic media. Far-Infrared Ceramics convert thermal or mechanical energy into far-infrared energy. Several manufacturers are now selling specialized therapeutic saunas in which the heat radiators are made of far-infrared ceramics. Wellness, however, uses these proprietary ceramics to ionize water that is placed into contact with the media.
Depending on the formula for the ingredients used to make the ceramic, the concentration of negative ions produced can be controlled within a specific range. This aids in the production of certain water properties for specific applications.

The Wellness Media
A synergistic combination of rare Japanese minerals and far infrared emitting ceramics make the water wetter to the touch than your normal tap water. This enhanced water is absorbed by your skin more readily and produces a softer and smoother skin. The absence of chlorine coupled with the hyper absorption of its water will produce fuller, more manageable hair.
NEW One Touch Backwash
A revolutionary built-in backwashing system allows you to quickly reverse the flow of the water going through your filter and flush out any accumulated solids that would otherwise shorten the effective life of your filter. This simple to use, patented system gives you optimum performance for 18-24 months of continuous use with each cartridge.
New Sleek European Style
The Wellness Shower is sleek in its design and comes with a chrome and gold plated plastic deluxe shower massage head. This head will produce several different types of sprays including one for those tired aching muscles. The head may be removed for any other handheld shower wands.
The Wellness Filter
Offers a patented purification system that is unlike any other on the market today. Using an innovative backwashing and regeneration system, many of the Wellness Filter® models offer users a virtually permanent filter that never needs replacement cartridges or chemicals. The Wellness kitchen unit, for example, has been tested to NSF standards and has been shown to reduce chlorine by 99.9% for over 28,000 gallons -- the equivalent of 28 years usage for an average family of four. Designed to satisfy the rigorous standards of the World Health Organization, the Wellness Filter® removes an extremely broad range of contaminates. Filters are available in whole house, kitchen, shower, carafe, and travel configurations...a model for every conceivable need.
The Wellness Filter
Uniquely enhances certain properties of water that improve its already vital role in our health, fitness and wellness. This enhancement process is available in every model of Wellness Filter we offer. Enhancement takes place in the body of the filter after the purification process is completed.
All shower products are manufactured and distributed in the U.S.
The cartridge media contains:
Taichoseki is a proprietary media used in all Wellness Filters®. On December 15, 1990, the Kitazato Medical School of Public Health in Tokyo, having found that it greatly inhibits the growth of fungus and bacteria, approved Taichoseki mineral stone as a "natural disinfectant". The Medical School's studies found that water treated by Taichoseki mineral stone slows down and even stops the growth of fungus and bacteria, including staphylococcus aureus, bacillus subtilis, aspergillus niger, myrothecium verrucaria, trichophyton interdigitale, and candida albicans. This mineral also removes iron, cadmium, and many harmful substances in tap water.
Bakuhanseki is a proprietary media used in all Wellness Filters®. On October 15, 1995, the Japanese Government's Ministry of Health, Drug Approval Division, gave their approval of the bakuhanseki stone as an approved medicine. The stone is approved for medical purposes in powdered form (oral or skin application), dissolved in water, and for use in water filters for bathing and drinking. The Ministry of Health uses Wellness Filter® water in their hospitals and in many of their approved health bathing spas. (Note: Because the Bakuhanseki mineral stone is designated as a medicine, treatments in health spas are covered by Japanese Government medical plans.) The Bakuhan mineral adjusts the water to a stable alkaline pH, increases dissolved oxygen, removes harmful substances and enhances the taste of the water. It will also remove lead, mercury, and chromium from tap water. It imparts trace Angstrom size minerals (silica, potassium, and magnesium).
