Drink Your Alkaline Water

Drinking Water
Did you know that to have a healthy body, one needs to drink two to three liters of water every day? Water makes up about 60 percent of the human body — not to mention that 83 percent of one's blood is water, which is used to transport nutrients, as well as expel wastes.

Water is indeed a vital part of one's daily routine. However, very few people know the benefits of water, especially its alkaline and acid properties.

The increasing number of degenerative disease sufferers worldwide, from cancer victims to diabetics, has gotten medical practitioners, the media, and public talking about alkaline water's restorative properties.

Dr. Leonard Horowitz, renowned health advocate and author of AIDS and Ebola, said, "International studies show that population with little or no history of illness, such as cancer, drinks higher (pH) alkaline waters."

Dr. Sherry Rogers, well-known educator and author of Detox or Die, also discussed in her book that alkaline water rids the body of acid waste. After doing her own set of researches and evaluation, she is convinced that toxicity in the form of acidic waste is the primary cause of degenerative diseases such as cancer and diabetes.

Few knew this, but acidic water, which is the reverse of alkaline water, is considered as a perfect cleaning agent for moldy kitchen sinks and bathrooms, since its acidic properties promote the reduction of unhealthy bacteria, and are way too harsh for the human body. Meanwhile, alkaline water was proven to do wonders for the body.

According to Fatima Morales, an alkaline water advocate, "Balanced acid and alkaline levels inside the body is critical to optimal health."

"With poor diet, stress, lack of sleep, and a polluted environment, it is very easy for the body to produce an acidic environment. But with drinking alkaline water, it can help one restore the body's chemical balance and one'’s mental and emotional state," she said.
