Ionized Water and pH
Ionized Water helps to balance your body’s pH. In general, our bodies are out of balance and have become too acidic. Feeling over-tired, weak, restless, frustrated, stiff, overwhelmed, unfocused or confused are often early warning signs that our bodies are no longer able to cope with their toxic overload.
A body that is too acidic provides the ideal environment for diseases to manifest and thrive in. Our body tries to buffer (or reduce) the effect of this excess acid by taking calcium from the bones, and magnesium needed for heart health. It turns acidic wastes into solids and stores them in fatty tissues resulting in hardening of the arteries and excess weight. It stores crystalline deposits in joints that creates gout, inflammation and stiffness. As our body’s communication channels break down, cancerous cells may appear and organs will shrink and degenerate.
Because it is very alkaline, ionized water dissolves accumulated acid waste and helps to restore balance. Keeping yourself alkaline is your first line of defense in fighting any disease.
What is pH?
pH stands for “potential hydrogen” and is a measurement that provides an indication of the level of hydrogen in a substance. It is measured by the pH scale. Proper body pH is an important factor in good health. If any substance changes from pH 7 to pH 8, it has become ten times more alkaline. Conversely, if it has changes from neutral pH 7 to pH 6, it is 10 times more acidic.
As an example, a popular Cola, at pH 2.5 is almost 50,000 times more acidic than neutral water, and needs 32 glasses of neutral (pH 7) water to counteract the consumption of one glass of Cola. (Active ingredient: Phosphoric Acid) You can now see that a change from the normal level 7.365 to pH 7 would mean that your blood would suddenly be around 4 times as acid as it should be. You would die from poisoning by your own blood. This is why every body system is used to support the correct blood pH.
You can also understand from this that our blood pH can be affected at any time of the day by a myriad of events; food, drink, stress, pollution, exercise, or beneficially, by meditation, by drinking alkaline water, by deep breathing, even by being happy.
