Your body tries to naturally maintain the acid-alkaline balance of your blood. But when your body is overly acidic, your system has to work even harder to keep that balance. That can in turn cause stress in other areas. When your body becomes too acidic, it can interfere with the activity of all the cells in your body.
The average modern diet consisting of fatty meats, cheeses and butter contribute to an overly acidic condition. Smoking, coffee, soft drinks, processed sugar, and alcohol also play key roles. Have you heard the expression, “Too much of a good thing can kill you?” Enjoying too much of these foods will deposit acid waste into our bodies. Diseases thrive where acid levels are high.
Alkaline water helps by neutralizing the acid levels of the body. Although it works best as a preventive measure, those who already have an illness or disease can still drink alkaline water to help speed up their recovery process.
