The Basics Of pH water

 If you think back to high school chemistry class, you may recall that term pH stands for “potential” of “Hydrogen”. It is the amount of hydrogen ions in a particular solution. The more ions, the more acidic the solution.  The fewer ions the more alkaline (base) the solution. The pH level is a measure of acidity or alkalinity, on a scale of 0 to 14, with 0 being most acid, fourteen being most alkaline and seven being mid-range. The pH level is one of the most important balance systems of the body, and the most critical pH balance is in the blood.

What is the pH Balance of the Body?

The first step to optimal health is to understanding how certain foods can upset your body’s natural pH balance. Your blood should have a neutral pH of 7.365. Having a pH higher or lower than this can cause a variety of unpleasant physical symptoms. Most individuals do not know that their body needs to have a certain pH balance. One reason for this is that the pharmaceutical industry wants to sell you expensive and dangerous pills to fix your problems. They do not want you to know that there is a safe, inexpensive solution to many of your physical ailments.

The body has a hierarchy of priorities for survival. Second only to breathing and sustaining our heartbeat, the most important metabolic function that our bodies perform is maintaining a specific pH. The most important pH level that the body must regulate is the blood’s pH level. The body’s blood pH level must be maintained at 7.365 (slightly alkaline).

Your body’s pH balance is determined by the foods you eat. If you eat too many acidic foods, you can experience acidosis. Raw foods are generally more alkaline than cooked foods, although there are some exceptions to this rule.

Many people feel tired and sick all the time without having any idea why they feel so badly. They do not think that the foods that they eat could possibly be a problem because they mainly eat healthy foods. However, many healthy foods can upset your body’s delicate pH balance if eaten in excess.

Most foods are alkaline by nature, but manufactured processed foods are acidic. It is important to balance each meal with 80% alkaline to 20% acidic to maintain health. It is important that your daily dietary intake of food naturally balances your body pH.

The correct ratio of acid and alkaline forming foods is difficult to know since the balance is altered by chewing, food preparation, individual lifestyle, genetics, exercise, and mental outlook. However, those prone to infections, viruses, excess mucus problems and other toxic acidic conditions need to increase their alkaline diet.

How Does Eating Affect Our pH Level?

Diet is probably the most important change we can make to balance our natural pH.  We need to eat and drink at least 80% alkaline. The average all-American diet consists of about 80% acid-forming foods and drinks!  Because processed and refined foods are extremely acidic to our systems, the body creates a buffering system (a chemical process to protect the body from being harmed by the acids). This buffering process requires the use of many nutrients from the body, including electrolyte minerals (organic potassium, magnesium, sodium, calcium, to name a few).  Electrolyte minerals are not minerals from the ground. They're minerals from plant sources that have gone through the process of photosynthesis.

Why are Electrolyte Minerals Important for our Bodies?

Electrolyte minerals are vital to the metabolic functions of our body systems. When we have a sufficient reserve of electrolyte minerals, the buffering process (the cushioning and removing of unwanted acids from our systems), is not a problem. When we are young, we usually have sufficient reserves. Over time, the electrolyte mineral reserves can become depleted by ingesting too many processed and refined acid-forming foods, or from excessive mental or emotional stress. When we run short of electrolyte minerals, our body is no longer able to maintain an efficient homeostasis (a state of equilibrium).

When the body is too acidic as a result of acid forming foods, high fat, mucus forming foods, and toxic food residues, disease and infections proliferate. This is especially true in cases of arthritis and rheumatic situations.

Water Filters

There are two basic types of water filter. Those that are installed inside a water ionizer and those that are installed outside a water ionizer or as a standalone filter. External filter systems can be configured in any number of stages with each stage removing a particular type or group of contaminants. Removing one type or group of contaminants is often considered a 1-Stage filter (i.e. removing either chlorine, fluoride-lead-arsenic, or nitrates). Filters can be combined to form any number of stages to form: 2-Stage, 3-Stage, and even 7-Stage (i.e. reverse osmosis) filter systems. How many stages you need to filter your water depends on the possible contaminants in your water. The most common water contaminants include:


By combining different filters into a 2-Stage or 3-Stage system, you can remove multiple contaminants to produce a higher quality drinking water than with just a 1-Stage filter. Reverse osmosis filtration systems are more expensive, however, they are recommended for removing the highest percent (up to 99%) of contaminants from your water.
