My Brethren, I wish that ye may be in health and prosper, even as your soul Prospers (3 Jn 1:2)

Is alkaline water good for you? Here is my experience after drinking alkaline water for 10 years. What I have to say here has cost this website many referrals. Alkaline water is a large and organised industry, and my being truthful about the long-term health problems caused by alkaline water has not earned me friends in the industry. For ten years I drank alkaline water almost exclusively. The pH was between 8 and 9, usually closer to 8. The alkaline water tasted sweet and good, but I cannot attribute any health benefits to the alkaline water over this extensive period. When I used to drink alkaline water, I tried not to drink it within an hour before or after a meal. This is important for high protein meals, which need an acid stomach in which to digest. Most people need more acid in their stomachs, and can improve their digestion by supplementing with hydrochloric acid. A glass of alkaline water from an

does not help with the digestion of your protein food! In early 2010 I was diagnosed with severe acid reflux and GERD / GORD. I suffered blockage, heartburn, and infection of the lower oesophagus. Typical symptoms that others suffer include: Diarrhoea, irritable bowel syndrome. Allergies. Poorly digested proteins tend to switch on allergies. Malabsorption, causing micronutrient deficiencies. Poor digestion of foods with recognizable foods appearing in feces. A tendency to get gut infections since acid is required to sterilise the contents of the stomach. Bacterial and yeast overgrowth means that food is fermented instead of being digested, resulting in wind, gas and bloating. It may also be part of the mechanism by which CFS sufferers are susceptible to gut viruses like Epstein-Barr. The pyloric sphincter will not open properly to allow the stomach contents into the duodenum. Food will tend to stay in the stomach for too long. Whilst investigating why my stomach was digesting poorly, and my lower oesophageal sphincter (LES) was not closing efficiently, I discovered that both the LES and the pyloric sphincter are pH sensitive. In simple terms, the valves for entry and exit to your stomach are confused by ongoing alkalinity. One of the keys for efficient digestion is a strongly acid stomach. I stopped drinking alkaline water, and started treatment with apple cider vinegar. There was an immediate improvement in my digestion and the reflux disappeared within days. I believe that long term use if alkaline water causes acid reflux and other health problems.

The Atkins Nutritional Approach or the Atkins Diet is bent on controlling insulin levels by the kinds of foods that our bodies take in. The rapid rise followed by the rapid fall of insulin levels in our body is the result of taking too much refined carbohydrates. A rising insulin level will send a message to our bodies to store as much energy as possible from the foods that we take in. Stored fat used as a source of energy will not happen with rising insulin levels The followers of the Atkins diet usually take in more protein in their diet.

When insulin levels are controlled, it results in more successful weight loss and body weight control. This type of diet encourages the consumption or good quality carbohydrates, unrefined carbohydrates, and fats.

The Advantages of Eating Natural And Healthy Foods are many. Many people from across the globe are seeing the need to change their lifestyle and go into trying out healthy diet to uplift the heath and condition of their body. There is a growing concern that is about the overdependence on eating fast foods as many people are seeing these chains as the best alternative to eat because they can readily get the foods that they want, yet they do not know that these establishments are the major cause of many health problems such as obesity and diabetes. The very main reason as to why the foods in the fast food chains are not healthy because most of these foods are fried with the use of high amounts of cooking oil which drenched the foods with high amount of oils in it, thus predisposing the eater to develop high cholesterol as well as heart problems eventually. In fact,

is one of the many cheap food alternatives that are healthy and natural that are available in so many markets today, and these foods should be eaten and consumed instead of those that are found in the fast food chains. These foods that are being sold in this market, are actually healthy and totally good alternatives. If you really want to be healthy, then you can try out getting some preserves of organic fruits as well as trying the apple chips which will ensure that you will be able to see and reap the benefits of eating healthy treats.. What should be done is that if you are eating and picking salad in the food item that you have chosen in the fast food chain, you must keep it away from the sauces and dressings as it will just make the food unhealthy.

Most illnesses arise due to an acidic state in the body. He said that healthy human cells thrive in a slightly alkaline environment. In fact, the "normal" pH range for blood is between 7.30 and 7.45. Blood pH is a good indication of how much oxygen is available to the cells. This fact is really important! According to many doctors and health practitioners, lack of oxygen to the cells is one of the primary causes of most diseases, including cancer. My friend also said that we become more susceptible to getting colds and flus when we are more acidic because many unhealthy bacteria and viruses thrive in a slightly acidic environment. So I took his advice to heart and started studying about the acid-alkaline balance in the body macrobiotic books and lectures. At the time, I learned that the two primary causes of acidity in the body are stress and an animal protein diet. Top 3 Alkaline Water Benefits As a health and nutrition consultant today, I frequently experience how difficult it is for many people to change their diets or lifestyles toward a more alkaline way of living. So I am always open to finding solutions that are easier. Drinking alkaline water is certainly easy, but is it beneficial? Three of the most important alkaline water benefits include: Alkaline water can help neutralize acidity in the body, Alkaline water from an

can reduce the amount of free radical damage Alkaline water helps keep bones and teeth strong and dense. In summary, what I have learned over the years is that alkaline water does afford many health benefits - but it does not override all of our bad habits. During my early years of researching alkaline water benefits, I discovered what seemed like a simple and quick way to alkalize my body. I don't remember for sure, but I think it was from an Edgar Cayce remedy for colds and flus. At the first sign of symptoms, I simply added 1 tablespoon of baking soda to a glass of water and drank it on an empty stomach every 2 to 3 hours throughout the day. To be honest, I have no idea if it helped or not but I have to admit that I never experienced a prolonged illness. Considering what I know now, I wouldn't recommend this approach to anyone. Drinking too much baking soda with water can be dangerous, especially when there is food in the stomach. In addition, I believe the alkaline water benefits from using baking soda are minimal and temporary at best. I certainly never saw any change in the overall alkalinity of my body fluids over time. Alkaline Water Benefits of pH Drops, Powders, or Tablets Today there are a number of products on the market, such as alkalizing pH drops, powders, or tablets, which are designed to be added to water and are supposed to provide health benefits. In my experience, the problem with these products is that they create what I call an "artificial alkalinity." People can easily become too alkaline with these products, creating other problems such as bladder and kidney infections. I wouldn't say these products have no value, but I believe they should only be used periodically, if at all, and certainly not on a daily basis. In addition, I think baking soda does essentially the same thing - and it's far less expensive.

2nd Kings 17.

The Book of 2nd Kings

Chapter 18

1

Now it came to pass in the third year of Hoshea son of Elah king of Israel, that Hezekiah the son of Ahaz king of Judah began to reign.

2

Twenty and five years old was he when he began to reign; and he reigned twenty and nine years in Jerusalem. His mother's name also was Abi, the daughter of Zachariah.

3

And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, according to all that David his father did.

4

He removed the high places, and brake the images, and cut down the groves, and brake in pieces the brazen serpent that Moses had made: for unto those days the children of Israel did burn incense to it: and he called it Nehushtan.

5

He trusted in the LORD God of Israel; so that after him was none like him among all the kings of Judah, nor any that were before him.

6

For he clave to the LORD, and departed not from following him, but kept his commandments, which the LORD commanded Moses.

7

And the LORD was with him; and he prospered whithersoever he went forth: and he rebelled against the king of Assyria, and served him not.

8

He smote the Philistines, even unto Gaza, and the borders thereof, from the tower of the watchmen to the fenced city.

9

And it came to pass in the fourth year of king Hezekiah, which was the seventh year of Hoshea son of Elah king of Israel, that Shalmaneser king of Assyria came up against Samaria, and besieged it.

10

And at the end of three years they took it: even in the sixth year of Hezekiah, that is in the ninth year of Hoshea king of Israel, Samaria was taken.

11

And the king of Assyria did carry away Israel unto Assyria, and put them in Halah and in Habor by the river of Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes:

12

Because they obeyed not the voice of the LORD their God, but transgressed his covenant, and all that Moses the servant of the LORD commanded, and would not hear them, nor do them.

13

Now in the fourteenth year of king Hezekiah did Sennacherib king of Assyria come up against all the fenced cities of Judah, and took them.

14

And Hezekiah king of Judah sent to the king of Assyria to Lachish, saying, I have offended; return from me: that which thou puttest on me will I bear. And the king of Assyria appointed unto Hezekiah king of Judah three hundred talents of silver and thirty talents of gold.

15

And Hezekiah gave him all the silver that was found in the house of the LORD, and in the treasures of the king's house.

16

At that time did Hezekiah cut off the gold from the doors of the temple of the LORD, and from the pillars which Hezekiah king of Judah had overlaid, and gave it to the king of Assyria.

17

And the king of Assyria sent Tartan and Rabsaris and Rabshakeh from Lachish to king Hezekiah with a great host against Jerusalem. And they went up and came to Jerusalem. And when they were come up, they came and stood by the conduit of the upper pool, which is in the highway of the fuller's field.

18

And when they had called to the king, there came out to them Eliakim the son of Hilkiah, which was over the household, and Shebna the scribe, and Joah the son of Asaph the recorder.

19

And Rabshakeh said unto them, Speak ye now to Hezekiah, Thus saith the great king, the king of Assyria, What confidence is this wherein thou trustest?

20

Thou sayest, (but they are but vain words,) I have counsel and strength for the war. Now on whom dost thou trust, that thou rebellest against me?

21

Now, behold, thou trustest upon the staff of this bruised reed, even upon Egypt, on which if a man lean, it will go into his hand, and pierce it: so is Pharaoh king of Egypt unto all that trust on him.

22

But if ye say unto me, We trust in the LORD our God: is not that he, whose high places and whose altars Hezekiah hath taken away, and hath said to Judah and Jerusalem, Ye shall worship before this altar in Jerusalem?

23

Now therefore, I pray thee, give pledges to my lord the king of Assyria, and I will deliver thee two thousand horses, if thou be able on thy part to set riders upon them.

24

How then wilt thou turn away the face of one captain of the least of my master's servants, and put thy trust on Egypt for chariots and for horsemen?

25

Am I now come up without the LORD against this place to destroy it? The LORD said to me, Go up against this land, and destroy it.

26

Then said Eliakim the son of Hilkiah, and Shebna, and Joah, unto Rabshakeh, Speak, I pray thee, to thy servants in the Syrian language; for we understand it: and talk not with us in the Jews' language in the ears of the people that are on the wall.

27

But Rabshakeh said unto them, Hath my master sent me to thy master, and to thee, to speak these words? hath he not sent me to the men which sit on the wall, that they may eat their own dung, and drink their own piss with you?

28

Then Rabshakeh stood and cried with a loud voice in the Jews' language, and spake, saying, Hear the word of the great king, the king of Assyria:

29

Thus saith the king, Let not Hezekiah deceive you: for he shall not be able to deliver you out of his hand:

30

Neither let Hezekiah make you trust in the LORD, saying, The LORD will surely deliver us, and this city shall not be delivered into the hand of the king of Assyria.

31

Hearken not to Hezekiah: for thus saith the king of Assyria, Make an agreement with me by a present, and come out to me, and then eat ye every man of his own vine, and every one of his fig tree, and drink ye every one the waters of his cistern:

32

Until I come and take you away to a land like your own land, a land of corn and wine, a land of bread and vineyards, a land of oil olive and of honey, that ye may live, and not die: and hearken not unto Hezekiah, when he persuadeth you, saying, The LORD will deliver us.

33

Hath any of the gods of the nations delivered at all his land out of the hand of the king of Assyria?

34

Where are the gods of Hamath, and of Arpad? where are the gods of Sepharvaim, Hena, and Ivah? have they delivered Samaria out of mine hand?

35

Who are they among all the gods of the countries, that have delivered their country out of mine hand, that the LORD should deliver Jerusalem out of mine hand?

36

But the people held their peace, and answered him not a word: for the king's commandment was, saying, Answer him not.

37

Then came Eliakim the son of Hilkiah, which was over the household, and Shebna the scribe, and Joah the son of Asaph the recorder, to Hezekiah with their clothes 1rent, and told him the words of Rabshakeh.
