HEALTH BENEFITS OF ALKALINE WATER
Research has shown that our bodies are 65-70% water. Blood is 83% water, muscles 75%, the brain 74% and bone is 22% water. The average 70 kg adult body contains 35 to 45 litres of water. Therefore drinking 1.5 ??? 2 litres of water a day is vital to keep our bodies hydrated. If our level of hydration falls below 50% we ascend to heaven, i.e., die. (Dr Emoto).
It is not only important how much water we are drinking but also the quality of the water we are drinking. With increasing pollutants in our environment, the standard of our drinking water is deteriorating. Many health experts are now recommending that our drinking water be pure.
Increasing the alkalinity of our water has been shown to provide numerous health benefits (our bodies have become too ???acidic???). Disease can only survive in an acidic state. High acidity in the body can contribute to a range of symptoms and degenerative diseases such as arthritis, heart disease, headaches, fatigue, and skin conditions just to name a few. If our body is more in an alkaline state disease cannot survive. The normal PH of the human body is 7.35 ??? 7.45. Dr Robert Young (a leading microbiologist and nutritionist from USA) quotes that ???if your PH goes to 6.9 you would go into cardiac arrest.
Understanding pH Level and Why Many People Have Disease, Including Cancer; pH is the abbreviation for potential hydrogen. The pH of any solution is the measure of its hydrogen-ion concentration. The higher the pH reading, the more alkaline and oxygen rich the fluid is. The lower the pH reading, the more acidic and oxygen deprived the fluid is. The pH range is from 0 to 14, with 7.0 being neutral. Anything above 7.0 is alkaline, anything below 7.0 is considered acidic. Human blood stays in a very narrow pH range right around (7.35 – 7.45). Below or above this range means symptoms and disease. If blood pH moves too much below 6.8 or above 7.8, cells stop functioning and the patient dies. The ideal pH for blood is 7.4.
If you have a health problem, you are most likely acidic; Research shows that unless the body???s pH level is slightly alkaline, the body cannot heal itself. So, no matter what type of modality you choose to use to take care of your health problem, it won???t be effective until the pH level is up. If your body???s pH is not balanced, you cannot effectively assimilate vitamins, minerals and food supplements. Also, mucus on the small intestine can block your body from vitamin and mineral absorption. Your body pH affects everything. Disease cannot survive in an alkaline state and yet they thrive in an acidic environment. An acidic pH can occur from, an acid forming diet, emotional stress, toxic overload, and/or immune reactions or any process that deprives the cells of oxygen and other nutrients.
An acidic balance in your body will;
??? Decrease the body???s ability to absorb minerals and other nutrients
??? Decrease the energy production in the cells
??? Decrease its ability to repair damaged cells
??? Decrease its ability to detoxify heavy metals
??? Make tumour cells thrive
??? Make you more susceptible to fatigue and illness
Salivary pH Test: Optimal pH for saliva is 7.0 to 7.5. Salivary pH is a fair indicator of the health of the extracellular fluids and their alkaline mineral reserves. It tells us what the body retains. Use test strips 2 hours after a meal. A reading lower than 6.4 is indicative of insufficient alkaline reserves. Straight after eating, the saliva pH should rise to 7.8 or higher. Unless this occurs, the body has alkaline mineral deficiencies and will not assimilate food very well. Alkaline water has a PH of 7.8. where tap water generally is lower than spring water, which has an average PH of 6-7.
Benefits of drinking alkaline water;
??? Create an alkaline environment full of oxygen in the cells and tissues so that disease cannot survive.
??? Slow down the ageing process by removing toxins and acidic waste from the cells.
??? Enhance physical energy and gain greater mental clarity by hydrating your cells.
??? If you maintain the body???s pH, ideally at 7.2 or above, you will never get sick. AQUA essence has a pH of 7.8.
??? Empower cells and tissues to repair themselves creating optimal health and longevity.
