How are you feeling now that summer is quickly drawing to a close?
Are you staying hydrated, fit, and healthy?
I started a new routine with alkaline water a few months ago. I’ve already noticed that I have brighter eyes, clearer skin, and I enjoy a much deeper and longer sleep. These are benefits I wasn’t even expecting.
Drinking alkaline water between meals has also alleviated my acid reflux, which I had all but given up on curing.
I lost seven pounds without having changed my diet. This is odd because I actually have been exercising less, so I can only figure it’s because I’ve detoxed my body and balanced my pH.
This is my personal experience, and one thing I can tell you–I’m not going back to regular water.

Some acids are essential to your body. Ascorbic acid, better known as vitamin C, helps your immune system fight invading germs. Hydrochloric acid is produced by your stomach to digest your food so that the nutrition can be absorbed. Amino acids are crucial to perform functions in the brain and body. But all acid is not the same and too much of anything is never good. Acidic waste builds up in the body due to poor diet and unhealthy lifestyles. Alkaline water can bring you back into balance.
Here are a few ways to start alkalizing your water and your body right now at home!
Water ionisers are a large purchase decision for your household, but you’ll be surprised to find out how reasonable they are compared with other water alkalising products, such as alkalising filter jugs. Water alkalizers are also the most environmentally friendly way to balance your body pH because they create very little plastic waste.
Being a sufferer of GORD, I was alarmed at this article by The Functional Gut Clinic, which announced a health campaign by Public Health England urging sufferers of chronic heartburn to see their doctor.
England has the “highest rate of oesophageal cancer in the EU,” with as many as 28 deaths from oesophageal cancer or stomach cancer every day.
Many fatal cases can be avoided by early detection, but in PHE’s survey, only 1 out of 2 people said they would seek medical attention if they had heartburn for 3 weeks or more.
The article sites that in the UK, a diet lacking in fruits and vegetables along with drinking and smoking are to blame. Obesity is also a risk factor.

Alkaline foods and pH balance are not a typical daily topic of conversation. However, people who cycle, run, hike, play tennis, or do any physical activity and want to perform at peak levels of fitness, have a choice to make.
It’s a choice many never consider, but one of the most important for overall health and fitness. It stares you right in the face every time you look at a menu or a shelf full of groceries.
The choice to consider is whether or not a food or beverage is going to help you maintain proper pH balance, or is it going to throw that delicate balance off and leave your body’s defenses vulnerable to health problems.
In order to maintain suitable pH balance, nutritionists suggest 80% of dietary intake should be alkaline and 20% acid foods. What exactly does that mean? It is a widely accepted nutrition fact that…
THE FOOD PARADOX Acidic Foods Can Have An Alkalizing Effect
It’s very important to understand that eating an acidic food does not automatically mean it makes your body more acidic. With the same premise, eating an alkaline food does not mean it will have an alkalizing effect on your body. Meat is alkaline. But, when ingested, meat releases acids that results in acidifying your body. The Acidic Lemon
The primary example is the lemon. A lemon contains citric acid. Concentrated citric acid is pH 2, which is a strong acid that can eat through clothing. But, guess what? Lemons, despite being acidic themselves, happen to push our bodies to be a little more alkaline. Here is the paradox. Our bodies react with some acidic foods to produce an alkaline state of health.
Acidic foods such as lemons, limes, grapefruits and apple cider vinegar* will alkalize your body. *Apple cider…
“Splashing Clear Water On White Background Use For Refreshment An” by khunaspix
In health circles there has been much recent talk about acid /alkaline imbalance. Let’s see if we can clarify how experts recommend we correct this imbalance.
Your body functions best when neither too acid nor too alkaline. Unfortunately almost all of us have become acidic due to diet, drinks and stress — both psychological and from pollution. Acids can build up in our body, causing systems to be out of balance.
According to Dr. Stefan Kuprowsky, “Acid wastes build up in the body in the form of cholesterol, gallstones, kidney stones, arterial plaque, urates, phosphates and sulfates. These acidic waste products are the direct cause of premature aging and the onset of chronic disease.”
When this occurs, the body will restore its optimal pH by depleting certain minerals, such as potassium, calcium and magnesium…
