What Is Alkaline Water?

Friday, December 30, 2011

If you happen to follow me on Twitter @DjInfernoLV, then you have heard me mention alkaline water more than once or twice. Let me first explain how I came to find out about alkaline water and its amazing healing properties.

For the longest time our family paid the outrageous fees that bottled water companies charge to have water home delivered to our door. After a year or so we tried to save a few dollars by filling up a half dozen 3 gallon containers once a week at the local filtered water station. It became quite a chore and to be honest it was a real pain in the butt.

So we tried out a Zero water pitcher. (Same as a Britta) You fill it with tap water and it filters out all the bad stuff and you're left with sparkling clean water. That much is true. What they dont tell you is that its only good for 20 gallons, then you need a new filter! What?? That's like a dollar per gallon!


Zero water gives you a little meter that tells you how many dissolved solids are in your water on a scale of 0 ppm to 500 ppm (Parts Per Million). 500 ppm is deemed by the EPA as not safe to drink.

Las Vegas tap water scored a 487 ppm!

The Zero water system worked perfectly. It took the Las Vegas tap water that was 487 ppm and made the first pitcher of water at .000 ppm. But after 20 pitchers the filter was only able to maintain .07 ppm and then .10 ppm. So you'd have to keep buying filters if you want clean water. Not cool and very expensive!

Next came the possibility of us buying an RO (Reverse Osmosis) system for our entire house. It was close to $5,000 and we just didn't have the money to do it. Damn! It seemed like anything we looked at was going to be a long term investment. After buying a RO system you still have to replace the filters every certain amount of gallons and depending how bad your city water is, that amount almost doubles!

We were stuck. We continued buying filtered water from what I called "The Well". Making trips back and forth with our water jugs every week. Booo! Now I know how Jack & Jill felt going up the hill....


My wife Diana continued researching about all the different types of complete home water filters, systems etc and in doing so learned a little about alkaline or "ionized" water. She read many claims that by drinking alkaline water a persons immune system could benefit greatly.

Crazy as it may sound and like most random things in life, Diana was out walking our dogs sometime in March and happened to run into a nice Asian man who went out of his way to introduce himself and offer our dogs some of his water... alkaline water! (Don't worry, he wasn't a creeper or anything)

He asked her if she had ever heard of alkaline water. She replied, "Yes actually..." and he continued to explain that he sold alkaline water machines to Veterinarian clinics all over Vegas. He explained that alkaline water is considered "healing" water and most that most vets use it to help speed the healing process after surgeries to many of the animals.

He also told her that most hospitals in Japan have been using alkaline water machines for their patients for many years. She was intrigued and wanted to know more so she contacted him and he even came to our home to give us a demonstration. We were both very impressed with his demonstration.


Scientific Stuff:
 

What makes alkaline water different from regular water is the process in which it's made.  Regular tap water flows over surgical grade platinum plates and when electricity is applied the H2o separates into two separate new ions,  hydronium, H3O+ (which is acidic) and the other, hydroxide, OH (alkaline).
 

In other words:
The water separates into two different streams. One is acidic and the other is alkaline.

Why is this important and how does it help your body?

The PH scale goes from 1 to 14.     7 is neutral.

Water produced above neutral is negatively charged Hydroxyl. These negatively charged ions travel thoughout your body and attract free radicals or toxins. These free radicals are then removed from your body through your urine.

The more alkaline water you drink, the more free radicals get removed and the better you feel. By removing more toxins and flushing your system out regularly you tend to feel more energetic and able to sleep better. That's why hospitals use this water because it speeds healing and helps immune systems tremendously.

Alkaline water created by water ionizers is not a new technology. Using electrolysis to create negative and positively charged ions was originally invented by Russian scientists over 50 years ago. It was the Japanese however who became the first to perfect this process by producing the first water ionizer machines in the 1980′s to be used in hospitals.

The food we eat and the drinks we drink all have a value on the PH scale. The blood in our bodies is said to be slightly alkaline at 7.365 which is just above neutral. Being slightly alkaline our bodies are able to fight off sickness and disease.

When we consume food and beverages like soda, coffee, chocolate, cheese and other things that are low on the PH scale our bodies become very acidic. This usually results in sickness and disease. Our immune system is weakened and we tend to get sick very easily.

I know this first hand because looking back to when I was drinking at least 2 liters or more of Diet Coke everyday and eating just about everything that is on the acidic side of the chart below.... I was sick all the time.

My conclusion is that this is not a theory but a fact. If you eat and drink the things low on this list and subject your body to acidic foods and drinks everyday you most likely will not be feeling well or sick all the time.

Quitting soda was the best thing I ever did. Trying to eat more organic foods like fruits and vegetables seemed to help a lot. Changing my water was next. Baby steps...





We ended up buying a Kangen water machine in May of 2011. It was expensive but worth every penny. At the time we were sold on buying it but had no idea how we were going to pay for it.

If it hadn't been for the financing that Enagic (Kangen) offers to practically everybody, regardless of their credit,  we never would have been able to get it. I'm so glad we did. Seriously though, they WILL finance anyone!

Our entire family has been drinking this water daily since the day we got it and no one has been sick since. No one has been to the doctor either. We are all very healthy and I believe that the alkaline water has a lot to do with it. I'm glad we bought it. You couldn't steal it from me if you tried.

Apparently the water must be doing something because several of our friends come over every few days to fill up their water jugs and have been for the past few months.  I don't think they would bother making the trip if they didn't notice a difference. Now they're the ones that are "going to the well" hahaha

There are quite a few more details about the science of what alkaline water does to your body, how it helps remove toxins and hydrates you better than regular water can, but it's just too much information to put in one blog entry.

If you are suffering with health issues like acid reflux, diabetes or a list of other ailments and think that this machine could benefit you and you want to know more, I would be more than happy to give you more information about it and help you figure out how to get a machine for yourself or your family.

Hopefully this blog has at least answered a few questions as to what alkaline water is and what it can do to help your body fight sickness and disease. It has definitely proved itself to me and my family.

  1. This blog post came at the perfect time. I was writing my BG menu up for the week and was trying to decide which fruits and vegetables to add for her daily servings. Can't believe pintos are so acidic! We are mostly raw vegetarians and depend on beans but based on your chart we will stick with kidney beans…I don't see tofu on there wonder where it lands on the ph scale.

    Thanks for the post!

  2. Very interesting. I have really been wondering what alkaline water was. It actually makes a lot of sense. It is defiantly something I will have to further look into. Thank you for the blog!

  3. I've been thinking about getting one of these for almost 2 years now...I think 2012 will be the year I make it a reality because 2012 is going to be my healthiest year yet & I know this will help tremendously. I've used IsaWater, but it gets a little expensive so this will be the best bet & it is the most logical.

  7. Today alkaline Water Ionizer Machines are so much in demand that hundreds of companies have sprung up around this product. However, not all of them are good enough to purify water that is highly acidic and contains Sulfur which cannot be removed from water using normal filtering methods.
