Water and optimum pH balance
One of the foundations of Optimal Health is maintaining the correct pH [potential of Hydrogen] balance in the body.
The pH scale is from 0 to 14. 0 is the most Acidic, 7 is Neutral, and 14 is the most Alkaline.
Our bodies are made up of 70% water, and a healthy body is slightly Alkaline, with an optimum pH of 7.5 - when testing saliva. Higher pH values allow the absorption of more oxygen.
A pH-balanced body is Healthy, Energetic and Vibrant. Any slight decrease in pH will result in lower oxygen levels in the blood and, therefore, in the cells. Any drop in pH, is the beginning of a disease state, and affects when and how we age.
Unfortunately most of us are Acidic, due to our Western diet and the quality of water we drink.
But what about the quality of water?
"I was shocked to find out how Acidic I was after putting that little test strip in my mouth - so I started researching; immediately changed my diet, to include lots of vegetables, fruits, fiber etc and eliminated highly processed and refined foods - start with eliminating all white sugar, and foods made with white flour."
At Dunedin Health and Wellness Center we are proud to have a top of the line Kangen Water Machine - which produces highly Alkaline, Ionized, Micro-clustered drinking water - for the health of our staff and patients.
We would love to share with you the benefits of alkaline water, and why it is an essential component to Health and Well being.
We have pH testing kits available so you can see the results for yourself. Saliva or Urine pH testing should be done first thing in the morning for most accurate results. We are positive you will be amazed.
