Why drinking Alkaline Water is great for you.
Here at Total Health we understand that to be healthy we have to keep things in balance. One of THE MOST IMPORTANT ASPECTS is our pH, or our acid/alkaline balance.
The purchase of a good water ionizer is one of the first things that you should do to prevent illness and help reverse the health challenges that many of you are already facing.
Drinking alkaline water helps to wash away acids and wastes that build up in your body and helps your whole body stay alkaline. By providing alkaline water to neutralize and remove acid from the tissues, you’ll help prevent the body from stripping alkaline substances from other parts to do the job, like leeching calcium from your bones.
To maintain or restore your body’s natural pH balance for optimal health, a great way is to drink restructured, ionized water, which is rich in anti-oxidants and alkaline minerals. Ionized water helps reverse the effects of acid accumulation in the body, the root cause of degenerative diseases and aging.
If you are eating a lot of acid causing foods then it becomes even more important. Eating animal products and processed foods, ingesting chemicals (including prescription and over the counter medications), overeating and excess stress of all types disrupt and weaken the alkaline state of the digestive tract. The most important thing is to start putting in the electron-rich, alkaline fluids so you can neutralize those acids from the foods you are eating and help to maintain that alkaline design your body requires.
Centuries ago, the drinking water around the planet was alkaline. However, because of industrialization and over-population in general, this is no longer the case.
On Disease & pH Balance
“Disease is a state when there is a loss of balance to an extent that the body cannot regain that balance.” – Dr Tim
- The pH level (the acid-alkaline measurement) of our internal fluids affects every cell in our bodies. Extended acid imbalances of any kind are not well tolerated by the body. Indeed, the entire metabolic process depends on a balanced internal alkaline environment. A chronically over-acidic pH corrodes body tissue, slowly eating into the 60,000 miles of veins and arteries like acid eating into marble. If left unchecked, it will interrupt all cellular activities and functions, from the beating of your heart to the neural firing of your brain.
- An acidic body pulls water into the tissues to try to neutralize the acids there. Without enough water, your body becomes too acidic and goes into preservation–fat-storing mode.”
- The body retains fat as a protection against the overproduction of acids produced by the typical American diet. Your fat is actually saving your life.
- Researchers believe that disease is caused by excess acidity in our body that weakens all body systems. Caused by our high stress lifestyles, what we eat and pollutants, it affects virtually everyone.
- People with cancer are almost always very acidic and toxic. One of the first tasks when looking to rid a body of cancer should be to get their tissues alkalinized with alkaline water.
- Acidity forces the body to rob minerals calcium and magnesium from vital organs and bones. Our reserves are depleted, leaving the body vulnerable to bone density loss, heartburn, indigestion, blood sugar issues, weight gain – 68 conditions in all.
- Diabetic symptoms which can include frequent urination, extreme thirst, ravenous hunger, weight loss, extreme fatigue, muscle wasting and life threatening ketoacidosis–are all a result of the body attempting to regain the delicate pH balance of the blood and tissues.
- Sexual function and desire are products of the autonomic nervous system, which can be paralyzed by overacidity.
The Good News
The truth is, that many people that come into our clinic are clearly acidic; they are suffering from all manner of modern day conditions. However, there are so many things we can do to help yourselves. Start drinking alkaline water on a daily basis. In addition, a healthy, alkaline, electron-rich, plant-based diet and low-stress lifestyle with appropriate daily exercise will also help restore your acid-base balance.
Your body thrives in an alkaline environment since it is able to detoxify more efficiently than in an acidic environment. In an alkaline environment your tissues get rid of impurities more efficiently.
When your body has sufficient alkaline reserves to balance itself, it will naturally recover and resist disease. The easiest way to help your body to be more alkaline is to drink alkaline water.
We continually see patients with painful osteoarthritis, who are on many different medications. Very often, within a couple of months, after balancing their pH through nutrition and alkaline water, and adding natural anti-inflammatories (Turmeric and Udos Oil), many are able to reduce or even get off of their medications entirely.
Allergies are nearly always improved with an alkaline diet and lifestyle.
To help keep your exercise pain-free, hydrate with good alkaline water to flush away the metaboic acid build-up, restore alkalinity, and to increase your reserves of free radical neutralizing antioxidants.
Your body can, and will, let go of the excess fat if your food and drink are alkaline. All that acid-binding fat will just melt right off. There will be no need for the body to hold on to it anymore.
Over-acidification interferes with life itself leading to all manner of sickness and disease!

Additional note from Dr Tim
“There are several manufacturers out there selling alkalizing water filters and there are also several ‘experts’ suggesting that continually ingesting this type of water is dangerous and should be avoided.
Well here’s my take and I’ve done a lot of reading and research on the subject. I agree that if you had too much alkaline water, enough to really shift the balance too much, it could have detrimental effects. For example if your body thinks it is already too alkaline it may reduce the absorption of health giving, alkaline forming, minerals. However, what we are talking about here is balance and the lifestyles that most of us have are SO acid forming that anything that move us back to a health pH is advantageous.”
