The pH, or potential hydrogen, scale runs from zero (acidic) to fourteen (alkaline), with seven as the neutral middle. An acid is a substance with a pH of less than 7. A basic or alkaline substance has a pH of greater than 7.
The human body is created to thrive in a slightly alkaline environment of 7,45. But, we should mention that this is not the same for all organs and tissues. For example, the pH of the digestive tract can vary from 1 to 4, which can be influenced by various factors, but mostly from the food we eat.
If you want to stay healthy and make your body fight against and prevent many different diseases, including cancer, you should keep your body healthy.
However, as most of us know, many factors can impact that and can make it more acidic. Processed foods, artificial sweeteners, all kind of chemicals, stress, environmental factors, and many other factors can cause that.
When our bodies are acidic, we experience symptoms like digestive issues, fatigue, weight gain, and even cancer. All these symptoms may be prevented by drinking pure water and consuming fresh, organic vegetables, which will restore the healthy balance in the system.
Yet, tap water that we drink contains chlorine, fluoride, hormones, antibiotics, and other metals that directly enter our body system. These chemicals can cause numerous health complications and weak immune system.
Importance of alkalinity
We have known for years that food can determine our overall pH levels. In 1931, Dr. Otto Warburg found the truth that made him get the Noble Prize in Medicine. He discovered that around 90-95% of all cancers develop as the result of an acidic environment in the human body. Additionally, Dr. Otto Warburg discovered that cancer cells cannot thrive in an alkaline environment.
Almost a century ago, it was found the connection between acidosis and the formation and growth of cancer. But, there is also a connection with almost every chronic disease nowadays like osteoporosis, heart disease, and diabetes.
When your pH levels drop, your body is trying to regulate in naturally to create homeostasis (balance). The body do this by storing some of these acidic substances in the organs like the liver, kidneys, lungs, and is using some of its essential minerals in order, to regulate the pH.
This will maintain the pH level at an optimal value between 7,35 to 7,45. If this issue is not solved, these acidic compounds will start to store in the healthy cells and make them toxic, sick, damaged, and, eventually, they will start growing without control and become malignant.
In this article, we will reveal the recipe of a detoxifying alkaline water, which can be prepared in 5 minutes.
- 1 lemon
- 1 tablespoon Himalayan salt
- 1/4 ginger root
- 1/2 cucumber
- 1/2 cup mint leaves
- 2 liters of purified water
Peel the ginger, and cut all the ingredients into slices. Then, add them to water. At last, add the Himalayan salt. Close the glass jar and leave it on room temperature to sit 12 to 24 hours.
For best results, drink this alkaline water first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. You should drink at least 3 glasses daily, on an empty stomach.
