The pH level, or potential hydrogen of a substance, ranges between 0 and 14, with 7.0 being neutral. Consequently, anything below 7.0 is considered acid, while anything above 7.0 is considered alkaline. A healthy body is slightly alkaline measuring approximately 7.4, which is why you should attempt to keep your body’s pH level as close to this measure as possible.

Many health issues may arise if your body is too acidic, including weight gain, exhaustion, problems with digestion, and fatigue. Nevertheless, there is a simple solution that will help you avoid any of the above issues and it includes drinking plenty of pure water and eating fresh, organic vegetables. By doing so, you will succeed in restoring the healthy balance in your body.

Even though you might find the first piece of advice, which says you should drink plenty of water, very easy to follow, you must know that by ‘water’ we don’t mean ‘any water”, but pure, natural water, which contains no contaminants or toxic chemicals. Tap water, unfortunately, fails to meet these requirements as it contains chlorine, antibiotics, hormones, and certain types of metals, all of which get directly into your body. Drinking tap water that contains such contaminants may cause a wide range of health issues and diminish the strength of your immune system.

Furthermore, everything that we eat and drink directly affects our general pH levels, and this has been scientifically proven. Moreover, the Nobel Prize winner, Dr. Otto Warburg found that 95% of all cancer types are actually acidic, resulting from an acidic state of the body. In addition, it has also been shown that cancerous cells cannot survive in an alkaline environment

Thus, he proposed that the excessively acid condition of the body fluids or tissues, also known as acidosis, is associated with cancer development, as well as one of the prime causes for many other diseases including heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, and other chronic diseases.

Since higher levels of acidity may lead to various health issues, you must try to eat a more alkaline diet from now on in order to preserve your good health. Also, the regular consumption of the following detoxifying alkaline water will greatly help you maintain optimal health and well-being.

This alkaline water recipe is very simple and can be prepared within just 5 minutes.

One of its main ingredients is the lemon, which has potent pH-balancing properties and despite of its acidic taste, it is inherently alkaline. Lemons help regulate the body’s pH level and they possess excellent antibacterial and disinfectant properties as well. Moreover, these citrus fruits have been shown to contain 22 cancer-fighting properties and to have the ability to aid in the treatment of numerous health conditions, ranging from less serious issues like bad breath to severe diseases like cholera.

Here’s how to prepare you healthy alkaline water:

Alkaline Water Recipe


  • 1 organic lemon
  • ¼ ginger root
  • ½ cucumber
  • ½ cup of mint leaves


First, cut a small piece of ginger root, about ¼ inch, and then peel it and shred it into a clean jug. Next, wash, peel and slice the lemon and cucumber (if they’re organic you can leave their skin on), and mince the mint leaves. Add all the ingredients to the jug and fill it with pure water.

To get the most out of the ingredients, you can use them up to three consecutive days. Simply add some fresh water to the jug.

Consume this beverage in the morning, right before breakfast, to achieve optimal results.
