Tonight I am under the weather (forgive me, for I have sinned), and it happens to be on the same evening that I decide to start a "liquid fast" to rid my body (mind, and soul included) of harmful toxins to help restore my immunity!
Advocates of alkaline water say that drinking it can optimize health, prevent numerous diseases, and slow the aging process. Alkaline water will flush toxins from the cells, remove and prevent toxins from accumulating, and make hydration more effective because it penetrates cells better than other types of water.
You can make your own alkaline drinking water at home using these two different methods that raise the pH of water over the neutral level of 7.
1. Use Himalayan Sea Salt Crystals to add to Spring Water. These natural and pure products are available for purchase online or locally. The Trader Joe's brand, for example, works by adding 1-2 crystals in a 1 GAL (3.78L) bottle of water.
2. Add Baking Soda to Spring Water or Distilled Water. Begin with 1/2 teaspoon baking soda to 1 gallon of water. Shake the jug to mix the baking soda and water thoroughly (check the pH of the water with a pH test strip if you think its a joke!)
Distilled water has a pH of about 7 or a bit lower, but you want this mix to measure somewhere between 8.5 and 9. Add more baking soda if the pH level is lower and test it again so the next time, you'll know exactly how much baking soda to add.
Live FAST; Get WELL!
