Correct Your Acid Alkaline Balance By The Water You Drink

have become acidic due to diet, drinks and stress -- both psychological and from
pollution. Acids can build up in the body's system causing the body's pH to be out of

The effects

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, from organs and bones. In addition, your
immune system may become fatigued from dealing with an excess of acid. Your body
then stores acidic wastes in 'hiding places' such as muscles etc. rather than releasing
the acids into the bloodstream.

As Dr. Robert Atkins, the noted author, health and diet expert, notes: "Just about
every condition I can think of, from arthritis to diabetes to cancer, is associated with

"The countless names of illnesses do not really matter. What does matter is that they
all come from the same root cause...too much tissue acid waste in the body!"
Theodore A. Baroody, ND, Ph.D.

What can be done?

A vast body of research reveals you can help the body neutralize acids in the blood
and maintain a balanced pH, by taking some simple steps, such as:

· Exercise
· Avoiding highly acid-forming food and drink.
· Drinking the right water

What is the "right" water?

"International studies show that populations with little or no history of illness, such as
cancer, drink higher pH (alkaline) waters. After all potential risk factors were
considered and factored out, it became evident that they had been drinking waters
with a pH of 9.0 to 10.0." Dr. Leonard Horowitz in "Aids and Ebola"

Alkaline ionized water "first came to notice in Japan, where researchers noted that
people drinking water that came from certain fast-moving rocky mountain streams
enjoyed extraordinarily good health. It turned out that this naturally occurring water
was alkaline and had a different structure and electrical properties." Larry Clapp, PhD.
in "Prostate Health in 90 days"

Alkaline water is produced at home with a small kitchen appliance called a water
ionizer (long in use in Japan and Korea). As water ionizers have become more
popular in North America, more health professionals have had the opportunity to
evaluate their effects on their clients:

Sue Pollock, N.D. writes, we can "assist the body in being more alkaline with …drinking
alkaline water."

"I believe that the best water is water that is alkaline (reduced) and purified using a
small device known as a water ionizer." (Dr. Stefan Kuprowsky)

"It is my opinion that ionized water will change the way in which all health
practitioners and the public approach their health in the coming years." Dr. T. Baroody
in "Alkalize or Die."

Why not just rely on a change of diet?

According to Sang Whang, researcher and author of "Reverse Aging", the danger is
that we might omit important foods:

"Since the waste products that we are trying to discharge are acidic, the right kind of
water is alkaline water...My personal recommendation is to enjoy the foods that we
like, but do not over-eat or exclude any food. Eat in moderation following the
professional dietitians' "balanced diet" concept, and let alkaline water do the job of
cleansing acidic wastes."
