Don’t assume that bottled water is necessarily a better option than tap water. Most bottled water is of questionable quality and largely made up of tap water plus the off-gassing of chemicals from the plastic in which it is stored.
Would you believe that drinking water is one of the most healing things you can do for your body? It’s true—as long as it is pure, filtered, alkaline water. Yet most water is acidic. Water that measures less than 7 on the pH scale is acidic; water that’s higher than 7 is alkaline. To support life, water needs to be on the alkaline side of the spectrum, much like our bodies.
Drinking pure, alkaline water is critical to great health. I believe that most of the diseases plaguing people in the Western world could not occur in a pH-balanced body. Based on extensive research, here are some of the disorders that may be linked to excess acidity:
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Lou Gehrig’s disease)
Candidiasis (candida albicans infection)
Chronic fatigue syndrome
High blood pressure
Premature hair graying
Tooth decay and loss of teeth
The list is expansive but by no means exhaustive.
Most tap water is highly acidic due to the addition of various chemicals. Don’t assume that bottled water is necessarily a better option than tap water. Most bottled water is of questionable quality and largely made up of tap water plus the off-gassing of chemicals from the plastic in which it is stored. Most bottled water is extremely acidic making it harmful to your health and the health of the planet too.
Water filtration is a necessary part of our modern life. There are many water filtration systems that eliminate some of the harmful toxins or microbes but few systems that also raise the pH of water to increase its healing powers.
Every cell in your body depends on adequate water to ensure proper functioning. Every person has individual water needs but if you are smaller than average and in excellent health your water needs will obviously be lower than someone who is obese and in poor health. So, try your best to consume only pure and alkaline water; remember I said it’s crucial to great health.
