The Distilled Truth About Alkaline Water

Let me start by stating that I’m writing this to distill the truth about the coined “alka-lines” and “alka-lies” flowing freely on the internet. There is no doubt in my mind that if I had not spent the past 40 years studying and experiencing the incredible truths about drinking plenty of pure water and fasting regularly, I would be just as confused as most people searching the web today for the truth of which water is the healthiest. Well you need not search any further.

The sad truth is that most “experts” simply have an agenda. They are either plagiarizing or quoting other “experts” in order to sound knowledgeable and important. Or perhaps they actually are important, but needing to stretch the truth about their “special water’s” benefits, while maligning all other types of water (except the “Holy” kind) because they are selling a very, very disgustingly profitable water purifier/ionizer, to the tune of $6,000. Oh my, thank your lucky stars for multi-level marketing, “MLM”! Here is what they teach the new recruits and downline in order to fill water buckets with bucks:

  • simply sign up twelve sick and/or dying unawares
  • sell them an ACME alkaline ionizers, tell them it has healing powers smuggled in from Japan
  • teach them a slew of scientifically, important-sounding meaningless technical words/ phrases
  • tell them that the competing carbon water filters breed bacteria and collect dangerous amounts of chemicals
  • share that DI exchange systems don’t remove 100% of all chemicals
  • let’s see, oh yes, reverse osmosis wastes oceans of water in the filtering process
  • plus, distilled water leaches minerals from your body and nickel from the stainless water distillers
  • here’s our favorite one, “early death comes from drinking extremely clean, pure healthy distilled water”
  • make false statements e.g., distilled H2O is acidic and therefore leaches calcium from the bones.
  • Teach them to spread this great news that “Alkaline Living Waters” is the only true healthy-healing water on earth that will make you very well and stinking rich and grow hair as a bonus!

Tens of thousands of sailors on Navy ships have been drinking pure, clean, healthy, pristine distilled water for decades (still are) with ZERO ill effects. Doctors, including Mercola, quote his asinine statement, “Early Death Comes From Drinking Distilled Water,” are more than likely embarrassed. Especially at how ignorant and unlearned they are about how the bodies metabolism actually works with regard to water and its relationship to all bodily functions. Ask yourself a simple question… would you expect to get your dishes clean by washing them in dirty water? Of course not. Isn’t the cleanliness your bodies more important than your dishes?

Dr. Andrew Weil M.D. (Named one of Newsweek’s “Top 100 Most Influential People in The World”) talks about distilled water being close to a pH of 7 (not acid), free of all contaminants (that is why laboratories and hospitals use distilled water) and it is the healthiest water available and it is the water he himself drinks.

Dr. Charles Mayo, founder of the Mayo Clinic, says that the inorganic, non-chelated organic minerals [hardness] found in water are the biggest cause for diseases related to the colon (1 out of 3 adults over 55 will get colon or rectal cancer). Inorganic minerals build up in our bodies contributing to kidney and gall stones, plaque in the intestines, colon, arteries etc. certain forms of arthritis and more.

We get our needed minerals from our food, not water.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: If any doctor, health care professional or nutritional specialist says anything negative about distilled water (simply the purest, cleanest H2O), it is because they market some type of water filter or purifier (ionizer, alkaline water machine costing $2000-$5000).

With the bottled water industry exceeding the 15 billion dollar mark, making it the fastest growing segment of the beverage industry, it only stands to reason that many would view this as a get rich quick opportunity.

When Amway, a multimillion dollar multilevel marketing (MLM) company discovered the low manufacturing costs and extremely high profit margins in carbon filters, 25 years ago, they rightly chose to include one in their product line.

Now the same thing is happening in the alkaline drinking water craze, or should I say scam?

Is Alkaline Water A Promoter Of Health?

Alkaline water advocates claim it allows for our bodies to better absorb both minerals and antioxidants from water, but Dr. Andrew Weil strongly disagrees with this unsubstantiated theory. He says that ionizers that produce alkaline water are an extremely expensive piece of equipment that produce water with a pH of 8-9.5 that is falsely claimed to protect health. The promoters say that alkaline water can prevent disease by balancing the pH of the body, that it energizes while hydrating the body much more effectively that pure water (distilled) and when used in cooking, even enhances the flavor of food. They claim alkaline water improves the absorption of nutrients, promotes “regularity,” cures overweight and obesity, and even breast cancer and high blood pressure.

Not only are these claims false, our bodies do not need any help whatsoever adjusting or maintaining pH. Most generally the blood and bodily fluid’s pH is near 7 which is neutral on the pH scale. Since all of the chemical reactions that maintain our body are so critical to life, they remain under very precise control. No matter what the pH is of the food and drink you consume, the body will remain in balance provided there are no serious issues with the kidneys or respiratory system.

It is a fact that alkaline water is prevalent throughout the midwest and western states; however, there are no medical statistics that it has prevented anyone from any diseases or disorders occurring elsewhere in the country. “The claims of health benefits associated with drinking alkaline water are not only unsubstantiated, they are “bogus,” save your money,” says Andrew Weil, M.D.

Next time someone tells you alkaline water is the healthiest water to drink, simply ask the what happens to their alkaline water one it hits the stomach? Answer: It instantly turns acidic! So much for alkaline.
