Find chemical-free ways to better your health and relieve pain the natural way. Are there foods for health that can cure or prevent disease?

Great Things to Look Forward to

What normalized alkaline does:

- Prevents and even reverses certain illnesses and diseases

- Aches and pains gone

- Improves digestion

- Raised energy levels within days

- Renewed vigor

- Mental clarity

- Improved health

- Leaner body

Being too acidic causes low energy, fatigue, a tendency to be overweight, bad digestion, aches and pains, with even more serious ailments.

Too Much Acid

Having too much acid in your system can be very unhealthy. Do you have too much acid? Have you ever checked to see?

Chances are you are acidic.

If you are forcing your body to work without its best inner condition you are making a breeding ground for so many chronic illnesses that come upon more than half the population. Meaning you have better than a 50% chance to be affected!

It is really astounding to think about. Will the lack of knowledge be our downfall?

Could one change in our life make that world of difference we thought could never be?

Basically the normal western diet is acid-producing and when acidic wastes build up it can cause organs to malfunction and break down!

Being Alkaline is Critical

A marginally alkaline body is critical for good well being. No matter how much you exercise and try to eat right, if you cannot balance the acids in your body, you are never going to feel as good as you would like to without the right alkaline balance. You are what you eat could never be better used than here. (I touched on this in another article for further information find link below.)

Often feeling tired is a sign you are overly acidic; and it is a fact that most people are. There is a solution and that is following an alkaline diet and having an alkaline body. Drinking alkaline water is an easy fast way to jump start a new healthy life!

Lemon Water

Alkaline water has a higher pH level than regular drinking water, therefore some advocates of alkaline water believe it can neutralize the acid in your body. Normal drinking water basically has a neutral pH of 7, with Alkaline water a pH of 8 or 9.

Water Ionizer

A water ionizer (or an alkaline ionizer) is a home appliance that raises the pH of drinking water by using electrolysis to separate the incoming water stream into acidic and alkaline components.

It is recommended to not buy an alkaline water ionizer from China, Taiwan or Malaysia. The bulk of alkaline water ionizers are not legally supposed to sell in some states for lacking proper "Lead-Free Certification." These can be quite pricey or you can buy pitchers from around $50 dollars to counter-top faucets at around $200 that claim to ionize with filters; without electricity. There are larger ones that go up near $1000; probably even higher if that is what you are looking for!.

Some water ionizers attach to your faucet and easy to use. The water becomes electrically ionized because the ionizer runs it over positive and negative electrodes. This separates the water into alkalized water and acidic water.

The alkalized water creates up about 70% of the produced water and is to be used for drinking.

Alkaline Benefits

Antioxidant
Detoxification
Hydration
Helps your body fight the aging process.
Flushes out toxins from your body.
Ionized water is more easily adsorb into your body
Helps mental clarity
Digestion Improvement
Increased energy
 
 
 

Test Stripes

Purchase an ionizer or a smaller version. Less expensive and does the same job no doubt for a shorter time, but still just as effective, providing you with the same quality.

Ionize Drops

Alkaline water can easily be made with the ionize drops that usually are one drop to an ounce of water. I found about an ounce and one half of these for about $5; so doing the math it is not as good a deal than another way to alkaline, or two!

Alkipure is a Portable Alkaline Water Ionizer and is about $30 and makes about 200 gallons of water estimated to last six months. Sounds really good to me, of all I looked into. That is $5 a month. Any of the drops I checked out seem quite expensive. Now I use lemon in distilled water and I see no reason that could not be used along with the ionizer or completely alone according to all the information out there I have seen so far.

Baking soda is another home way of ionizing your water but the salt content would be so high I could never recommend it. Although I have met many online who swear by it! I cannot imagine a very large percent out there who do not have some risk with salt intake. Especially the older and heavier we get.

I did find information that although it is bitter and one might think acid and that is vinegar! Vinegar is a good way to get alkaline also and I love that because I have apple cider every day with vinegar for my health. You cannot taste the vinegar in the cider so it is a great way to get it if you like to have vinegar without the sour face! Easier on your stomach and tooth enamel also, being mixed!

Alkaline water

Do you plan to make your own alkaline water?

See results

A Lemon Anyone?

If all of the above seems too complicated then simply peel a lemon a day and slice it up! It is that easy.

When I first started on the lemon a day I followed directions to slice the whole lemon with peeling and let it stay overnight in a jug or jar of water at room temperature. You are tougher than me if you can take that! It was awful and all I could taste were the peels.

So using logic I peel my lemons and sliced to add to water or simply squeezed fresh lemon in my water. Possibly the lemon penetrating the water for a time period better ionizes it so I do that as a rule, although I have not read that to be a fact. As of now though I really love my lemon water; much easier to drink than plain.

I do know the peels are nutritious, beneficial to our health and I will use those in blender made drinks with added ingredients.

I do believe an alkaline body is better than acid and I do believe I am seeing a difference in the little time I have used lemon and vinegar. Digestion and energy for certain and quite possibly a decrease in nerve pain in my hands and arms. I did have surgery for that and it did help but was still quite a bit of bother off and on until I started the alkaline regimen. So I do attribute it to that especially now I have read that is one of the added benefits!

Glass mason jar. I prefer using glass over plastic; don't you? So if I didn't have a glass container available I would simply use a glass jar. Oh; and it doesn't have to be mason!

Lemon peels, frozen or boiled are a great way to add to our diets and super nutritious.

Alkaline Teas

Alkaline Tea

What a quick and enjoyable way to get an alkaline body. I add other teas in my alkaline tea that I enjoy and make me look forward to the drink. I usually have two cups from this since there are two bags of tea making it stronger. I seep a couple of minutes then lift the bags to a clean cup to use later.

In Conclusion

Buy some strips to test your pH; they are really inexpensive! You won't know how much you improve if you don't have the beginning numbers. (Less than 7 is acid.) All my studies claimed it is absolutely mandatory to have a proper pH balance in order to maintain optimal health. Nearly all claim an alkaline body will not produce cancer. That alone is reason enough to try this.

I have written about and recommend an alkaline diet but how easy it is to become alkaline through water (or teas) and could it be our fountain of youth? Some make that claim. It is worth trying, I think!

Next there are the drops that I consider pretty expensive in the search I did at all the least expensive places. If this is something you are more apt to do to receive an alkaline body then that is what you should do. Giving up one or two unhealthy treats a weeks would probably cover the cost and be an added benefit to boot.

The teas are very affordable and although you may have to order online it is an easy thing to do and convenient.

Finally there is lemon, which nearly anyone can afford and remember to do daily. Add it to water the night before or just squeeze fresh lemon in your bottles or glasses of water as you use them. So when life gives you lemons, make sugar-free lemonade (or just lemon water) and live a longer, healthier life!

    I think it is very much worth considering Mary and I use both lemons and limes and I have lately read a lot about limes possibly being the better of the two, but all we can do is just keep researching and doing what we can while we do.

    colorfulone-I would love well water! If you get some alkaline strips and check it you may have plenty of alkaline in it; who knows? At one time my daughter had well water she hated so she would go out and buy jug water and I would take jugs to her house to bring home well water! Crazy; huh?

    We have reverse osmosis water at work, and I normally have lemon or lime in it. Plus, OK has very high mineral content in the water naturally. I have not been aging for years, so I think I am on the right track. I also eat probiotic yogurt, which doesn't hurt, either, and am pretty much a vegetarian.

    That is great John; now get those strips to check your pH if you haven't and see how far that one glass has gotten you. You never know, you might be high enough! 7 to 9 I think it is suppose to be.

    No problem Theresa; I figured as much and it is all I can do to get time here too.

    I loved doing this one and just one day wondered why I hadn't already; I guess because I did the alkaline food one but this one is so much easier to stick to; isn't it? I keep meaning to also order that $5 a month ionizer to use too; will try to do that tonight!

    Thanks for stopping by.

    This is so well presented, Jackie. Any good things we can do for ourselves is always of interest to me. I drink lots of water and am concerned that it is truly healthful. I have an ionizer but will research some of your suggestions as well....

    Lemons are a favorite of mine in water too. The tips about using them rather than tossing them are goodies....who cannot keep them around to enjoy their aroma ???

    Hi Jackie,

    I'm sorry I have been away for so long since before the weekend. As you know, we had the grandchildren up and then back to a grueling work week.

    However, I am thrilled to be here now and read this most informative hub! You've done a great job here in all of the information and wonderful presentation, plus your own keen insight adds much. I believe my body is too acidic and never realized about checking the Ph levels.

    I believe this is right up my alley, in that it is so easy that one does not have any reason to give this try, especially with all the great health benefits and who doesn't love lemons.

    Hugs and blessings

    Cool stuff Jackie. So the bottom line is clear. Probably all of us have a body that is too acidic. Probably caused by our modern diet. So anyone with half a brain would at the very least get some PH strips and test. Very easy, inexpensive and non-invasive. Pick up some lemons and get them in your water. Tasty and just the Vitamin C is good for you and it just can't hurt you anyway.

    Thank you it shall be done in my home today.

    5 years ago from the beautiful south

    You would think so wouldn't you Eric but the fact is that although lemon is acid on the outside of the body, when lemon juice has been fully metabolized and minerals of it are dissociated in the bloodstream, its effect is alkalizing; therefore raising the pH of body tissue!

    Vinegar would seem acid too wouldn't it and it isn't either. I did not hear of vinegar particularly being recommended, maybe because lemon is easier to drink, but I use both!

    Jackie,

    Help me out here because this seems counter-intuitive. Last I checked lemons contain ascorbic acid. However you cut the lemon it contains acid. So we are to put acid in our water in order to balance out the acid in our body?

    Great useful hub.

    I always believed in the power and benefits of lemon. In fact, my usual routine in the morning is to drink water (no lemon), take a shower and then have my green tea (with lemon) right after shower. I'd wait for at least one hour before I could have my breakfast. And, for the rest of the day, I make sure to drink 1 ltr of water with lemon specially when I'm flying.

    Yes, we consumed a lot of lemons in the house. We love it and so this hub.

    Passing this along for a happier and healthier life!

    Love from the sky~
