5 Reasons Why You Need to Drink Alkaline Water

I bet you have already come across the alkaline diet plan to stop your body being too acidic.

There has been numerous articles, books and cook books writen on this subject.

If this concept is new to you, in short:

it’s about the foods you eat which have an alkaline or acidic impact on the body after they’ve been metabolized.

What’s more, acidosis is caused by the acid-forming foods you take in on a daily basis, adding stress, tension,

anxiety you experience triggered by your work, relationships, pollution as well as other environmental toxins

and contaminants we are literally bombarded daily with.

 

Why am I writing about the alkaline water,

you may be asking?

Last weekend I was invited to support Sophie Trew.

She organized the Trew Fields Festival near Guilford to raise awareness about cancer and holistic approach to health.

It was my duty and pleasure to be there.

Duty – because I lost my friend to breast cancer some time ago and pleasure because I love supporting great causes

and meeting fab people who are interested actively looking after their health .

It shocked me how many people (various ages, both genders) I spoke with who either have recovered from cancer

or know someone who is going through treatments…

 

Why keeping body in {alkaline} balance is crucial?

Here is the 5 reasons:

If your body is too acidic, you are more likely to suffer with

Digestive issues,

Fatigue and tiredness,

Muscle cramps,

Weight gain,

Even cancer.

 

Let’s look into it in more details:

This indicates that if the environment in your body is too acidic for an extended period of time, your cells could end up being harmful or even cancerous.

Alkalinity Plays a Crucial Function in Keeping your health in excellent condition.

The pH scale ranges from 0-14 – 14 is the most alkaline, 0 is the most acidic, 7 is neutral.

Our human body needs a slightly alkaline environment of 7.4 for optimum health and vitality.

Yet various body systems and organs flourish in various pH levels.

 

Let’s take a look at an example so you get an idea.

The skin has a pH of 5, the saliva has a pH of 6.5-7.0.

Furthermore, the digestive system has a pH that differs from 1.5 to 7.0. It generally depends on different aspects, specifically the food you eat.

 

In addition, The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 1931 was granted to Dr. Otto Warburg for his discovery that about| 90-95% of all type of cancer

are caused by an acidic environment. He also discovered that cancer cells cannot survive or expand in a body that is alkaline (if the pH {is about 7.36).

As an outcome of this, scientists have examined pH levels of various drinks as well as foods and their effect on the human body.

Acidosis or in other words over-acidity has actually been connected with the advancement of osteoporosis (poor bone density),

diabetes, heart problems, cancer and many other chronic conditions. Most of them connected to our lifestyle.

 

How can I find out whether my body is too acidic?

You could really make use of normal pH paper strips to do a simple saliva test in order to find out if your body is OK or too acidic.

Your body could also be too acidic if you experience the following signs and symptoms:

Chronic tiredness (nearly everyone we spoke to at the Festival has this issue. Surprisingly, the age, gender nor cultural background didn’t matter).

Lack of getting enough air

Easily running out of breath

Muscle aches and pains after walking short distances

 

In situation like this your pH level decreases, after that your body aims to develop homeostasis

– in other words maintain optimum pH level by collecting the very acidic compounds in specific body organs like your liver, kidneys, and lungs.

This assists your body to keep an ideal pH of 7.35-7.45.

Eventually, these very acidic compounds could begin attacking your healthy cells.

Moreover, your healthy and balanced cells become damaged, toxic and eventually ill.

If you do not resolve this issue, gradually with time these cells might metastasize

– spread frantically and infect various other organs or parts in the body.

 

How to Deal with Acidosis and Enhance Your Overall Health and wellbeing?

Your diet plan might be among the significant perpetrators of chronic acidosis if it includes processed, refined foods, sugar, alcohol and also high levels of caffeine.

On top of that, the growth hormones, additives and pesticides and E numbers – varied chemicals included in the food that can cause too much acidity in the body.

Not only you must make some adjustments in your diet, but you also need to include alkaline water to combat acidosis.

 

Alkaline water can offer your body exactly what it needs to maintain homeostasis and protect your body against disease.

What I introduced people to at the Festival was the PiMag Waterfall by a Japanese company called Nikken.

It is a table top unit which not only produces alkaline water (between 8.5 -9.5 on the pH scale),

it also re-mineralises the water, magnetises it (as if the water was in the grounds), ionizes it – overall, the water leaves you refreshed and hydrated.

People kept coming back for more and couldn’t get enough of it.

One lady shared with me that she drunk 4 probably 150 ml glasses of the water and didn’t go to the toilet.

The water gets actually absorbed in the body.

Rather than going to the toilet every so often after drinking a different type of water – it usually happens with tap water.

 

My personal tip:

First thing in the morning, I drink a cup of warm water with lemon.

It helps the body to detoxify after a long night sleep,

it helps you maintain regularity in the morning, it replenishes lost fluids – we all sweat at night.

 

Proper hydration helps you to be more alert but also your skin will be clearer and glowing.

You can sip lemon water during the day too.

In fact, it’s been very popular these days to add all kinds of fruit in your drinking bottle

e.g. apples, pears, berries, oranges… as your taste buds desire.

 

Choose organic lemons and fruits – you don’t want pesticides or other toxins adding into your body.

 

As I pointed out above, you need to make some dietary adjustments!

Stay clear of sugar, processed foods, alcohol, etc.

Instead drink pure, clean alkaline water throughout the day in order to fight acidosis and you’ll boost your general health and wellbeing.

 

Super excited to announce that there is a special offer!
