Are You Acid or Alkaline?

It's quite easy to know whether you need to alkalize before making your decision to invest in alkaline balancing systems.

Although the vast majority of Westerners are overloaded with acid waste, there are a very few who are not.

In her excellent book The Chemistry of Success Dr Susan M. Lark MD says that understanding the importance of your pH balance will lead you to the realization that peak performance and general health are intimately related, and that robust health is essential if you want to meet your goals in life.

Dr Lark lists the benefits of maintaining a healthful state of slight alkalinity:

According to Dr Lark, the results you get show tendencies, not necessarily actualities.

Look at them in relation to how you feel and make your own decision.

There are ample markers here for your to self-assess with reasonable accuracy, but without expert medical advice you cannot rule our a pre-existing health condition that may be causing the trend you see in this test.

Between the ages of thirty and fifty
at least several of your vital chemical/metabolic functions cease operating at peak efficiency due to accumulative effects of the wear and tear of daily life. It is rare to have only one symptom; you will almost always identify a number of markers in the above test, if not a breakdown in several areas.

Symptom variations are limitless.
A fifty year old man may have a high frequency of allergy symptoms, low libido and high blood pressure. His female partner on the same diet may have digestion problems, an overly acid stomach, increasing fatigue, hot flushes and other transitional menopausal symptoms.

It's important to understand that change has to occur holistically rather than symptom-by-symptom. We need to change the way our body functions at its most basic level rather than find yet another antidote for the latest symptom, which may just be another manifestation of pH imbalance.

This is why alkaline water is so effective; with water comprising 60-70% of a middle aged body, changing water pH has the ability to reduce acidity almost immediately. The advantage of using one of our advanced alkaline water ionizers is that you always have the choice of alkalinity level, so you can use the alkalizer as a complete balancing tool. An extended acid-producing activity (excess work or physical activity, stress etc) can be responded to immediately.
