Youll feel a whole lot better when you go, store owners claim

Lake Oswegos Natural Healthy Us is about healthy water, losing weight


by: REVIEW PHOTO: VERN UYETAKE - Kelly Yoo now offers her clients a FAR infrared sauna at Natural Healthy Us in Lake Oswego. It was about 500 years ago that Ponce de Leon went looking for the fountain of youth in Florida. He didn’t find it.

It would have been better for him if he had been born 500 years later and stopped at Natural Healthy Us in Lake Oswego.

No, there is not a fountain of youth there. Instead, Kelly Yoo and her husband, Jake, sell their alkaline water ionizer, which they promise is an excellent investment in your health. It can produce water that, they claim, makes people feel younger and better.

Kelly Yoo delights in pouring a glass of her water for visitors and telling them how good it is for them.

“A glass of this water is three times stronger than blueberries in antioxidants,” Yoo said. “You don’t need the chemicals tap water has in it. That is why I’m so excited about this.

“When you drink this water you can feel the difference, inside out. It’s so healthy.”

How healthy is it? Let Yoo count the ways.

“It removes toxins,” she said. “Cancer can’t survive with a high level of alkaline in the body, and there are no ill side effects. It can cut down the effects of drinking and smoking. It helps with depression, anxiety and headaches. People won’t get dehydrated as soon. One glass of this water equals five glasses of regular water.”

People are also surprised when they find out how long that Natural Healthy Us has been in Lake Oswego — 12 years. Still, Yoo has a hard time convincing people how great her product is.

“It’s wonderful for everything,” Yoo said. “But if you say that to people on the street they don’t believe it.”

Soon after Yoo made this statement, long-time customer Alison Lewis of Lake Oswego showed up to get some water, and totally without prompting she launched into a rave endorsement of Natural Healthy Us.

“I’m a believer,” Lewis said. “I live so close by and I drove by here a million times. If I had known it was so good I would have come by sooner.”

Lewis is making up for lost time.

“I feel so much better,” she said. “I have fewer headaches, I sleep better, I have no gum or teeth problems. I feel younger. I’ve lost weight. I love the taste, too. If I didn’t, I wouldn’t use it. You can taste all of the minerals in the water, which are so good for you.

“I am never, ever going to stop coming here. I don’t think I could ever go back to regular water. I wish all of Lake Oswego could know about this place. I wish everyone would go drink that water.”

There is a bonus, too, with Yoo’s water machine. As a biproduct it produces acidic water that is even better for killing germs in your mouth than mouthwash.

And there’s more. Natural Healthy Us just added a FAR infrared sauna. All a patron has to do is sit in it to lose weight and get healthier, she claimed.

“It’s the easy way to lose weight,” Yoo said. “If you can’t get to the gym, you can just come here and sit down.”

Lewis said, “It has infrared heat that is so healing and penetrating. Sweating is one of the best ways to eliminate bad things from your body. I feel like I’m glowing when I come out of there.”

Yoo keeps a book of glowing testimonials about Natural Healthy Us. She wants it to get a lot bigger.

“Our goal is to keep families healthy naturally as much as possible,” Yoo said.
