All good health stems from an alkaline body and sufficient oxygen at the cellular level. Anything we put in our body affects our alkalinity. This includes not just the food we eat, but also the water we drink.
Ideally, our pH level, which measures the acidity or alkalinity of our body, or in other words the sickness or health of our body, needs to be 7.364 or a number very close to that. A pH level below 7 tells us we are acidic while a pH level above 7 tells us we are heading towards alkalinity. The same numbers apply to our water too.
Healthy Drinking Water or Acidic Water?
Most of us are unaware we are drinking acidic water. How is this possible? It’s quite easy really. The water that comes out of the tap and most bottled waters we buy are acidic. Tap water usually comes in with a pH level right around 6.75. Bottled water is no better.
We are wasting our hard-earned money buying water, not to mention all the waste involved with manufacturing plastic water bottles. Approximately 28 billion plastic water bottles are purchased every single year; almost 80% are never even recycled!
Why are our main sources of water so acidic?
Tap water is treated through a water system plant which utilizes chlorination and/or fluoridation.
Most bottled water is acidic because the processes of:
Remove alkalizing minerals.
The absence of alkalizing minerals in our water draws the alkalizing minerals out of our bones and teeth. This is necessary to buffer the acidity in our body which comes from drinking acidic water.
What happens then?
Free radical production
Free radicals are produced in an acidic environment. What else is the result of an acidic environment? A higher risk of cancer. Cancer thrives in acidity and drinking acidic water contributes to this risk. My own personal journey with cancer bears this out. I was living an acidic lifestyle with no chance of getting well without switching to an alkaline lifestyle.
Dr. Otto Heinrich Warburg, one of my heroes, a biochemist and 1931 Nobel Prize winner for his work with cancer cells and oxygenation told us us about the connection between acidic water and disease long ago.
“Diseased tissues are acidic, whereas healthy tissues are alkaline. Water contains H+ and OH- ions. If there is an excess of H+, it is acidic. If there is an excess of OH- ions, then it is alkaline.”
To put it a little more simply, the pH scale is a measure of the number of hydrogen ions (H+) and hydroxide ions (OH-) in a solution. If there are a lot of hydrogen ions the pH is very low or acidic. If there are a lot of hydroxide ions that means the number of hydrogen ions are very low, so the pH is high or alkaline. Therefore, acid water leads to acid tissues and alkaline water leads to alkaline tissues. Clearly, our goal to be healthy must include adding alkalizing water to our daily routine.
