The most important thing you must learn is to hydrate the body with alkalizing water. Like the earth on which we live, our bodies are 70% water. Food cravings are often the body’s cry for water. A thirst for water will begin as one begins to hydrate with water.

A diet high in acid foods such as meat, dairy, grains, high sugar fruits and bread, causes acid wastes to build up in the body. When acid wastes eneter our blood streams, the blood system will attempt to dispose of these wastes in liquid form through the lungs or the kidneys. If there are too many wastes to handle, they are deposited in various organ systems like the heart, pancreas, liver, colon, and other locations. This can cause cancer or any kind of disease.

The breakdown of this disposal process of acid waste could also be called “the aging process”. To slow down and reverse this process, one must begin by removing this over-acidification of the blood and tissues by including liberal amounts of alkaline water in the diet. Alkaline water has a pH between 8 and 11, and will neutralize harmful stored acid wastes and gently remove them from the tissues.

Think of your body as a fish tank. Think of the importance of maintaining the integrity of the internal fluids of the body that we “swim” in daily.

Imagine the fish in this tank are your cells and organ systems bathed in fluids, which transport food and remove wastes. Now imagine we back up a car and put the tailpipe up against the air intake filter that supplies the oxygen for the water in the tank. The water becomes filled with carbon dioxide, lowering the alkaline pH, creating an acidic pH environment, and threatening the health of the “fish”, your cells and organs. This in turn chokes off the oxygen and you are then more susceptible to cancer.

Fruits and vegetables will alkalize the body and tissues. If they are in liquid form, they will do directly into the blood stream and alkalize the tissues. That’s why we drink vegetable juice or green drinks. All of the green grasses such as alfalfa grass, wheat grass and barley grass will alkalize effectively in liquid form. The algaes will do the same such as blue-green algae, spirulina, chlorella, etc. Coral calcium in liquid form will alkalize too. However, the most ideal way is to drink purified, alkalized, mineralized water. Reverse osmosis and distilled water that is purified is acidic. Tap water could be alkaline because of some mineral content, but then there are many undesirable toxic chemicals. But now there are water purification systems that make water at a pH of over 8. They remove the chemicals and minerals but add minerals back in again. These systems are ideal and the best way to drink water that is beneficial to the body.
