Alkaline Water – what is all the fuss about?

Updated: Aug 16, 2023

Why drinking Alkaline Water is great for you. Here at Total Health Chiropractic, 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.


Why drinking Alkaline Water is excellent for you!

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.

Maintains or restores 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 critical. 

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.


Over Acidity

  1. The pH level (the acid-alkaline measurement) of our internal fluids affects every cell in our bodies. The body does not well tolerate extended acid imbalances of any kind. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. The body retains fat as a protection against the overproduction of acids produced by the typical American diet. Your fat is saving your life.

  4. Researchers believe that disease is caused by excess acidity in our body that weakens all body systems. Created by our high-stress lifestyles, what we eat and pollutants, it affects virtually everyone.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Sexual function and desire are products of the autonomic nervous system, which can be paralyzed by over-acidity.

The Good News

The truth is that many people that come into our clinic are 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 daily. Also, a healthy, alkaline, electron-rich, plant-based diet and low-stress lifestyle with appropriate daily exercise will help restore your acid-base balance.

Your body thrives in an alkaline environment since it can 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.

Alkaline water helps with arthritis

We continually see patients with painful osteoarthritis, who are on many different medications. Often, within a couple of months, after balancing their pH through nutrition and alkaline water, and adding natural anti-inflammatories (Turmeric), many can reduce or even get off of their medications entirely.

Your body can, and will, let go of the excess fat if your food and drink are alkaline. All that acid-binding fat will melt right off. There will be no need for the body to hold on to it anymore.
