I first learned about alkaline water benefits many years ago from a natural health practitioner who had a background in macrobiotics. He taught me that most illnesses arise due to an acidic state in the body. He said that healthy human cells thrive in a slightly alkaline environment. In fact, the "normal" pH range for blood is between 7.30 and 7.45. Blood pH is a good indication of how much oxygen is available to the cells. This fact is really important! According to many doctors and health practitioners, lack of oxygen to the cells is one of the primary causes of most diseases, including cancer. My friend also said that we become more susceptible to getting colds and flus when we are more acidic because many unhealthy bacteria and viruses thrive in a slightly acidic environment. So I took his advice to heart and started studying about the acid-alkaline balance in the body macrobiotic books and lectures. At the time, I learned that the two primary causes of acidity in the body are stress and an animal protein diet.

Here's What I learned about Alkaline Water

Top 3 Alkaline Water Benefits I see as As a health and nutrition consultant today, I frequently experience how difficult it is for many people to change their diets or lifestyles toward a more alkaline way of living. So I am always open to finding solutions that are easier. Drinking alkaline water is certainly easy, but is it beneficial? Three of the most important alkaline water benefits include: Alkaline water can help neutralize acidity in the body. Alkaline water can reduce the amount of free radical damage. Alkaline water helps keep bones and teeth strong and dense. In summary, what I have learned over the years is that alkaline water does afford many health benefits - but it does not override all of our bad habits. My First Alkaline Water Cure was During my early years of researching alkaline water benefits, I discovered what seemed like a simple and quick way to alkalize my body. I don't remember for sure, but I think it was from an Edgar Cayce remedy for colds and flus. At the first sign of symptoms, I simply added 1 tablespoon of baking soda to a glass of water and drank it on an empty stomach every 2 to 3 hours throughout the day. To be honest, I have no idea if it helped or not but I have to admit that I never experienced a prolonged illness. Considering what I know now, I wouldn't recommend this approach to anyone. Drinking too much baking soda with water can be dangerous, especially when there is food in the stomach. In addition, I believe the alkaline water benefits from using baking soda are minimal and temporary at best. I certainly never saw any change in the overall alkalinity of my body fluids over time. Alkaline Water Benefits of pH Drops, Powders, or Tablets Today there are a number of products on the market, such as alkalizing pH drops, powders, or tablets, which are designed to be added to water and are supposed to provide health benefits. In my experience, the problem with these products is that they create what I call an "artificial alkalinity." People can easily become too alkaline with these products, creating other problems such as bladder and kidney infections. I wouldn't say these products have no value, but I believe they should only be used periodically, if at all, and certainly not on a daily basis. In addition, I think baking soda does essentially the same thing - and it's far less expensive. Even after the baking soda phase, increasing body alkalinity by drinking alkaline water made sense to me so I continued to pursue and learn more.

What I learned about Investing in Alkaline Water Machines

True Alkaline Water Choices that I've learned that water that is alkaline in pH (in a healthy range between 7.0 and 9.5 pH) has more alkaline minerals in it than acidic minerals. Tap water that is treated with disinfectants such as chlorine becomes acidic. However, laws require the municipal water to be alkaline in order to preserve the city pipes from acid corrosion. The problem is that the way our treatment centers handle this requirement is by adding lye and/or other unhealthy (i.e., toxic) alkalizing agents to the water. My question to them is, what do you think the chlorine and lye is doing to our body's "pipes" when we drink that water? Alkaline water benefits only come from water that is free of contaminants and contains more naturally occurring alkaline minerals than acidic minerals. Unfortunately, true alkaline water is hard to come by. Most bottled water is acidic. Water that is purified via distillation or reverse osmosis (both of which remove minerals in the water) is also acidic. Well water is a possible choice if the source water is consistently free of contaminants (or if used with an effective filter) and if the water is rich in alkaline minerals, such as calcium and magnesium. Drinking spring water is a good choice. Natural spring water often contains a level of minerals that is beneficial to health. Mineral-rich water will usually have a neutral or slightly alkaline pH. Ionized water is an even better choice because the water contains ionic alkaline minerals. The ionization process makes the alkaline minerals even more bio-available to the body because of their electrical charge. Water ionizers can be expensive. But when it comes to health, I have certainly learned that an ounce of prevention is worth much more than a pound of "cure" (i.e., the cost of medical expenses). In fact, with all due respect to the medical profession, most of the time the treatments don't cure anything; they just temporarily suppress the symptoms with medications. Thus I will continue to pursue natural solutions that support the body to heal itself

118 Glutinous grains cause inflammation. Inflammation promotes cancer progression. This means avoiding high-gluten grains such as wheat, spelt or rye, including the whole grains. Pastas, cereals, bread, muffins, cakes, crackers, cookies and other baked goods are excluded from an alkaline, cancer-suppression diet. Cancer patients should enjoy whole, non-gluten grains such as rice, buckwheat, quinoa, millet and amaranth. However, using "gluten free" prepared products is a mistake, as most of them have added sugar or processed oils and will therefore fall outside of the alkaline diet parameters for cancer. Cow dairy has been identified in a very large study compiled by Prof. (Emeritus) T. Colin Campbell, PhD, Cornell University as one of the most cancer promoting foods.[viii] Strangely enough, it is the protein that is the culprit – casein protein. High protein yogurts made with added powdered milk or whey are even more cancer promoting than plain milk, yogurt or cheese. However, all dairy products should be eliminated from the diet when you are fighting cancer.

Here's Some things I learned about Alkaline Water Machine

Dairy products create inflammation, cause bone deterioration (yes it is true, because of the high acid production during digestion of dairy) and promote cancer progression in a similar fashion to sugar. Use only natural, cold-pressed olive oil, coconut oil or avocado oil – organic where possible. These oils are naturally anti-inflammatory, thus provide a soothing and healing benefit to inflamed and potentially cancerous cells in the body. Coconut oil in particular has also been shown to have a mild antibacterial/antifungal effect, helpful for cancer patients with a lowered immune function, as well as direct anti-cancer properties. Oils that should be eliminated from a cancer-suppression diet include corn, soy, canola, safflower or sunflower oils. Not only are the commercial versions of these oils produced from genetically modified plants – believed to increase cancer risk - most of them are highly processed. Processed oils, including hydrogenated (hard) oils and margarines, have been prepared at high heat to improve shelf life. This changes the oil molecules so that instead of acting as a natural conductor for all the electrical messaging in your body, these molecules create "dead spots" in your cells because they cannot conduct electricity. This interferes with healthy cell function and can promote cancer progression. Essentially cancer cells are cells that no longer respond to intracellular messaging and proliferate without purpose, impacting other cells.
