The idea of acid alkaline imbalance as the cause of disease isn’t new. In 1933 a New York doctor named William Howard Hay released a groundbreaking book,”A New Health Era” in which he asserts that all disease results from autointoxication (or “self-poisoning”) due to acid accumulation in the body. “The countless names of illnesses don’t really matter. What does matter is that they all come from the same root cause… too much tissue acid waste in the body”

Such problems as

Cardiovascular damage, including the constriction of blood vessels and the reduction of oxygen; Weight gain, obesity and diabetes; Bladder and kidney conditions, including kidney stones; Immune deficiency; Acceleration of free radical damage, possibly contributing to cancerous mutations; Premature aging; Weak, brittle bones, hip fractures and bone spurs; Joint pain, aching muscles and lactic acid build up; Low energy and chronic fatigue; Slow digestion and elimination; Yeast/fungal overgrowth; Lower body temperature; Tendency to get infections; Loss of drive, joy, and excitement; Depressive tendencies; Easily stressed; Pale complexion; Headaches; Loose and painful teeth; Inflamed, sensitive teeth; Mouth and stomach ulcers; Cracks in the corners of their lips; Excess stomach acid; Gastritis; Nails are lean and divide easily; Hair appears dull, has broken ends, and drops out; Dry skin; Skin easily irritated; Leg cramps and spasms.

So we can see that a balanced pH is vitally important. The slightest variation will lead to significant illness and disease. The body will do whatever necessary to keep this equilibrium, and it always abducts acid minerals (like calcium) in its effort to keep a wholesome balance.

Understanding that makes you understand why most older men and women experience osteoporosis after a lifetime of consuming acid generating nutrients. As far as diet goes, just fresh fruits and vegetables are alkaline producing to help your body maintain a healthy pH balance.


An acid pH, or “acidosis,” is the expression used to refer to the imbalanced acidic condition of our body fluids. Virtually all cellular functions of the body are sensitive to the pH of the fluids. If the pH deviates too far to the acid side, cells become poisoned in their own toxic acidic wastes and perish.

Is Drinking High pH Alkaline Water Good For Me?

A glass of water at pH 9 can have low, moderate or higher alkalinity and everything in between, depending on what’s dissolved in it. It’s what’s in the water which makes all of the difference. We will need to realise that you could have high pH water but very little, if any alkalinity; meaning that the water barely buffers the body’s acid condition in any respect. It’s not large pH alkaline water we need, its own water with high levels of alkalinity.

To state it clearly, it’s not enough to drink high pH alkaline water, in reality pH isn’t a large factor at all when one is attempting to alkalize the body (recall lemon juice, apple cider vinegar and fresh green juices all have an acid pH but alkalise the body. The real key to addressing metabolic acids and constructing alkalising reserves in our body fluids and tissues is the total amount of alkalinity (alkaline mineral chemicals ) which is consumed.

The practice of pH balancing your body begins with appropriate diet and nutrition. This includes eating a greater proportion of alkaline foods (vegetables, low sugar fruits, etc.), properly hydrating your body, (drinking lots of pure spring or structured water), mental attitude and appropriate supplementation. A healthy diet should consist of 80 percent alkaline-forming meals and 20% acid-forming foods.


This information shows just a fraction of the minerals and pH imbalances can affect your health. Much of the information is recorded in professional journals, available if you search. It seems that because of politics and the influence and strength the medical/drug industrial complex has over the suppression of data, these things remain hidden from public view. Unfortunately for the general public, most medical personnel training doesn’t include natural or nutritional medicine remedies.
