Our bodies are made up of almost 70% water. Healthy blood pH is around 7.35 to 7.45, which is slightly alkaline. However, many of the foods we eat and many of the environmental factors we are exposed to are acidic. Therefore, we need alkaline substances in our diet to help us balance the pH of our bodies.
In the absence of balance, the body draws calcium from our teeth and bones to neutralise the acid in our blood. This is one of the reasons why sugar rots your teeth. It also rots your bones!
Even if your fizzy drinks were put straight into your stomach via a tube, you would still get tooth decay, because in order to neutralise the carbonic acid, your body would draw the calcium from your teeth.
We simply do not have enough calcium reserves to cope with it all, which is why many elderly suffer from osteoporosis.
Prescription drugs, smoking, meat, dairy, some nuts, sugar and wheat all increase the acidity of your body. A significant problem with this is that cancer thrives in an acidic environment.
So not only should we avoid carbonated drinks, we should actively try to repair the pH balance by drinking alkaline water.
You can buy machines that you can hook up to your kitchen tap so that it…
- filters the water, (to remove heavy metals, bacteria, pesticides and various other toxins),
- adds minerals to it,
- processes it to make it a pH of 8 or greater, adding hydrogen (which easily donates its electrons), and
- reduces the molecule cluster size, (making it more easily absorbable for better hydration).
We know that having a negative charge, (from electrons), is important to the membranes of our cells, because they use the variation in charge, (from the positively charged nucleus to the negatively charged exterior of the cell), to move waste out of the cell and to bring nutrition and oxygen in.
Therefore, not only do we make our body more hostile to cancer by consuming more alkaline substances, but the extra electrons available from alkaline water help to restore the charge to our cell membranes. Cancer cells have a negative charge on their cell membranes that is three times lower than healthy cells.
Consuming alkaline water also helps to destroy free radicals in your bloodstream before they have chance to damage your cells. This makes alkaline water somewhat of an antioxidant.
Interestingly, you can see some videos of the before and after effects of alkaline water on YouTube. In particular videos of the insides of people’s colons after using this water. It is amazing what water can do for your health. They even use alkaline water to kill E. coli and salmonella in chicken processing plants.
There are several places in the world that people flock to for miraculous healing water, such as the springs of Lourdes in France, the caves of Nordenau in Germany, the wells of Tlacote in Mexico and more.
Scientific research conducted by Dr Shirahata of Kyushu University in Japan, shows that these “miraculous” sources of water contain as much as 200 to 300 times more hydrogen than normal tap water.
I use a KeoSan Alkaline Hydrogen Water Filtration System because it infuses tap water with abundant hydrogen and it tastes great. I couldn’t be without it.
Further research has also been conducted into the energetic levels of water. It appears that water has some form of energetic memory. Still and dead water has larger clusters of molecules and low energy. But if the water is vortexed, or falls down a waterfall, it ends up with smaller clusters of molecules and greater levels of energy in it.
Interestingly, this makes it a better solvent, so it can remove waste better or transport nutrients more effectively. If you shake a drink that has settled, it mixes up again. This is the same principle.
Not only does the KeoSan machine filter out unwanted impurities, re-mineralise and alkalinise the water, but it also vortexes it to help it to form hexagonal clusters of energised water that are better absorbed.
There are other brands out there, but for less than £200 or $300, this brand seemed excellent value for money, considering its unique features.
