pH Levels And Your Health

I invite everyone to discuss this topic since it can save somebody's life. Most people, even physicians aren't familiar with the dangers of acidosis. Acidic conditions in the body often result in health problems as cancer, chronic fatigue, Candida Albicans, depression, IBS, arthritis, osteoporosis, fyromialgya, MS, weight gain and more. I invite you also to read my blog at http://healthy-body4u.blogspot.com for more on the importance of keeping an alkaline body. We had at home a case of swine flu (my grandaughter) and her body fought it amazingly. She was drinking alkaline water (a 20 ounces bottle) 4 or 5 times a day plus an off the counter medication for fever and other symptoms. Her mom (my daughter) started with mild symptoms and she started drinking more of the alkaline water since she was already drinking it regularly. I saw how her symptoms were manifesting for a while and used to go away when she increased the regularity and the amount of the water. Her symptoms were coming and going for around 3 days. I think her situation was like that because she eats a lot of acidic foods. Myself didn't get the flu and I think it was because I was taking the alkaline water 4 times a day since April. Of course I give God all the glory for protecting us and for letting us know what we need to keep our bodies healthy. Please go ahead and read my blog and add me as your friend;-)

What was the PH of the water you were drinking? I've read some testimonials on the net on how drinking alkaline water immediately improved whatever condition they have (like acid reflux). In some cases, I even see the instructions on ionizers that say people have to start from a lower alkalinity level because the detoxifying effect can make you dizzy. I drink Alkaline water too and I'm still waiting for some kind of buzz that will tell me something in my body is going right. Could it be the alkalinity level of my water (not too high)?

Hi cianoy I'm sorry to answer late, I have been busy lately and I haven't checked my emails or visited myLot lately. Today checking my emails I found my myLot email saying I had an answer to my post. Ok, the first thing you will notice when you are becoming alkaline is that your body response to disease is amazing. For example you go outside, it is cold and windy, your nose got a little stuffy, you sneezed few times and you say "oh oh I will get sick". You know what to do, you start drinking your alkaline water for the rest of the day and all the symptoms disappear. See? You will notice a strength in you immune system. Bacteria and germs can't survive an alkaline environment. You need to drink half your weight in water a day. For instance if your weight is 160 pounds you need 80 ounces of alkaline water a day which is four 20 ounces bottles of water a day. Maybe that's why you haven't seen any difference. The water I drink is 9.9 alkaline. I get the sachets that make the water alkaline and I drop one in a bottle of water, shake it for 15 seconds and let it rest for 5 minutes and then drink it. One sachet lasts for 4 bottles of water. It means that you drink your first 20 ounces of water and refill the bottle 3 more times always shaking it 15 seconds and letting it rest 5 minutes before drinking it. Check my profile. Under my picture there is a link that gets you to the site with a lot of information on it.

Wow 9.9 is high. My water's 8.85. So far, no dramatic effects yet. I think I do drink a lot; at least 8 glasses a day. Half the body weight seems high though. I need like 85 pounds of water a day in that case.

You need to take half your body weight in ounces of water. For instance if a person weights 150 pounds she/he needs 75 ounces of water a day. That is at least 4 bottles of water a day where each bottle contains 20 ounces of water. If you weight 160 pounds you need 80 ounces of water a day. Which is 4 bottles of 20 ounces of water each. One sachet will last for the 4 bottles of water a day. You drink one bottle of water and leave the sache inside the bottle and refill it. Do this 4 times. Next day use a new sache and do the same. Check this alkaline vs. acid charts to select alkaline foods. http://www.wiliweld.com/ph/

HI jerimiyah There is a misunderstanding about what an acidic is, What matters is not whether a food tests acidic in a lab -- it's whether or not it's acidic to your body. Lemons, for example test very acidic in a lab but are very alkalizing in the body. People also mis-combine their food creating even more acid in the body. I found this website that has an alkaline vs acidic food chart. It will help you combine your food so your ulcers can heal. Remember our meals should be 80% alkaline and 20% acidic to keep a balance. Also alkaline water will to keep our cells hydrated.

That's because the water clusters for Alkaline Ionized water are smaller. This allows the water to penetrate the cells better allowing for more efficient hydration.

I thought drinking lots of dairy would keep you more alkaline, I think you may get this topic deleted for self promotion of your blog.

I nver heard about anyting like that. I guess something like that would help though. I think that alkaline water would be something I might want to try sometime in the future but as for right now I just us what I use and think that I will defintely try some thing new though and I like to be able to hear about new advents as far as health and welfare go.
