This article is devoted to the how to's to balance pH and achieving maximum health for your body. The various products and systems work as I have tested them myself and have had others use them as well to balance their pH. Don't over look this if you are trying to build a strong immune system, have any systemic yeast infection diseases, or any degenerative disease.
Acidosis occurs due to common toxic chemicals found in soaps, laundry detergents, deodorants, skin products, pesticides, chemical preservatives in processed foods, and acidic foods such as soda, to name a few.
We now know that all these causes contribute to metabolic acidosis and the body then uses calcium, potassium, magnesium, and other minerals to balance pH and remove this acidity.
We also know that the foods we eat today, besides lacking greatly in minerals and vitamins, are also enzymatically dead and almost completely worthless from a nutritional stand point. So, practically saying, there is no way to consume enough foods to get the required amounts of these minerals into our bodies to balance pH.
If you are already taking a calcium mineral supplement and your pH is still too low, then switch brands since that one is not being absorbed by your body and is for all purposes worthless.
A proper balanced pH is also critical for the rebuilding of cells within your body. Every 7 years the body will completely replace every single cell in your body at least once. Without the correct minerals at the right amounts in your system, this is not possible and results in degenerative diseases. The pH test is a good indicator for monitoring your mineral content for your overall health and for the strength of your immune system, which is critical to beating yeast infections.
I recommend a Calcium and Magnesium supplement to help raise pH levels. Make sure you take a Vitamin D supplement with a dash of Vitamin K2 as well so that you don't calcify your arteries. If you eat plenty of fresh green leafy vegetables every day, and get 20 minutes of sun, without sun screen, you really don't need these supplements.
Another good way to balance pH is to drink alkaline water having a pH between 9 and 11. You will read more about how to make alkaline water in the following paragraphs. Alkaline water will first neutralize harmful acid waste deposits, and if you consume it every day, these will gently be removed them from your body. Yet, since the water is ionized, it will not leach out valuable alkaline minerals like calcium, magnesium, potassium, or sodium.
In Japan, doctors have been balancing pH in their patients’ bodies for over four decades with alkaline water. They believe that the immune system loses its power to throw off disease when the body becomes too acidic. They advocate drinking alkaline water and eating alkaline foods.
Asian medicine assigns two categories to human diseases: communicable and adult. Contagious or communicable diseases are caused by viruses and bacteria. Influenza, the common cold, AIDS, plagues, all fall into this category, and medical doctors are quite proficient at treating them. Adult diseases include heart disease, cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, gout, arthritis, kidney diseases, hemorrhoids, asthma, hay fever, allergies, obesity, tooth and gum disease, skin disorders, and many others.
They are caused by poor circulation, by deficient cellular activity, and by the accumulation of acid wastes in the body. Asian medicine says that many adult diseases can be treated by alkalizing the bloodstream to balance pH.
Medicine in America does not attempt to remove acid wastes from the physiological system or balance pH; no wonder that today's modern allopathic medicine is rather deficient in treating adult diseases. Even if the medicine cures the disease, the treatment's effectiveness will at best only be temporary as the acids continue to stay in the body.
A water distiller can be a great cost effective way to balance pH because of its low cost and great water purifying abilities. Water distillers purify water by heating it so it steams. The steam is then collected in a steam collector and condensed back into water and deposited into a container completely free of all contaminants. All the contaminants are collected in the heating side of the distiller for easy clean up after you have processed a gallon of water.
This can really be quite sickening when used with tap water or many so called spring waters; you will probably never drink this water again once you see what is left behind. Most water distillers do have pre-filters to reduce the amount of contaminants that have to be cleaned out of the unit. They also make a gallon of water in about 4 hours using very little power and have very little noise.
A water distiller can be extremely cost effective; they remove everything from the water including all minerals, and reduce the water to 1 part hydrogen and 2 parts oxygen which is true water. This water has an alkaline rating of 7.0 which is neutral. By removing these minerals from the water the kidneys no longer have to filter these minerals from the body. An argument can be that these minerals are good for you, when in all actuality these minerals come from rocks and not plants. They are not bio-available to the body i.e. we need to get these minerals from plants in an ionic form. Distilled water also removes toxins from the body, not ionic minerals, and takes the strain off the kidneys.
At this point I would now add Liquid Minerals to the water. Liquid Minerals are a concentrated Ionic Trace Mineral formula from the ocean. Roughly 4 or 5 drops per quart is all you need and you will notice a difference. To me the water tastes better and is more wet, it feels like it is really hydrating you.
Another very simple way is to mix a half glass of water with a half glass of lemon juice and drink it. Follow this glass with another glass that is half water and half grapefruit juice. This not only makes you more alkaline but also helps clear out the mucous accumulations from the previous night.
Another solution is to add a pinch of bicarbonate soda or baking soda, to every glass of water you drink. That should boost the pH level to 8 or 9 if the water was neutral to start with.
The information mentioned in this article regarding the uses and benefits of alkaline water is medically correct.
Though debate continues on which is better-plain water or alkaline water, there is ample of evidence to show that ionized alkaline water is in general good for preventing complex diseases like cancer, heart diseases, and retardation of bone loss. (1) An article published in 2009 from Mansoura, Egypt writes that metabolic acidosis is usually caused by accumulation of acidic wastes or loss of bicarbonates from the gut or kidney. This study, conducted in dog and rat acidosis models treated the animals with ionized alkaline water and reported significant improvements in renal failure conditions. (2)
It is an interesting fact that the consumption of alkaline reduced water that was prepared by domestic electrolysis devices was approved in Japan in 1965 by the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare in order to find cure of gastro-intestinal disorders, diabetes, and cancers (as long as its electrodes do not degrade due to overuse). (3) Not only this, Koufman, MD and Johnston, PhD, reported that use of pH 8.8 artesian well water irreversibly inactivated the enzyme pepsin, which plays the most important role in bringing about reflux disease. Therefore, denaturation of pepsin and the hydrochloric acid buffering capacity of alkaline water proves its beneficial effects in reflux disease. (4)
Therefore, I agree with Dan when he says that alkaline water should be a part of your routine to drive away complex diseases!
