Changing What You Drink Will Make An Impact On Your Health

Anyone who knows me very well at all, knows one thing, I am deeply passionate about drinking water. I have done it for a long, long time now, and I can say with all honesty that it is the one thing I have done religiously to improve my health the most.

Alkaline/ionized water is better than tap water though. It does not fill you up too much. You can drink a lot more of it without the water sloshing around in your stomach. It hydrates you quicker and more efficiently. It's alkaline and will help you digest food easier and neutralize acid, and energize you better than caffeine! Oh, did I mention energize you faster too? That would be from the millions of tiny, negatively charged hydrogen ions you can visually see after you run a glass full of ionized water.

In all the water ionizer marketing talk, you will hear a lot about Dr. Batmanghelidj's book, "Your Body's Many Cries For Water", a ground breaking health recommendation of drinking half your body weight in ounces of water every day. And while you will eventually get the point (that following this doctors water recipe will change your life) water ionizer marketers completely forget to mention HOW IMPORTANT adding sea salt to your diet is. There is a difference in salt, and it is not the rat poison that most American doctors tell you it is. More on that subject here.

Ionized water or tap water, whatever you choose, don't forget about adding the salt along with it! Dr. B never believed in any type of designer water, especially if the purpose was to make money off of it. Consider him old fashioned maybe, but possibly a little biased. He grew up in a generation that did not believe in exploiting something as simple and basic as water is to survival. There certainly has been some exploiting of water in the water ionizer business, though, over the last 10-12 years in the United States. Prices of the electric ionizer machines (although they work really great) have kept many people away from a very good thing for their health!

But, you can say the bottled water industry has, also, exploited a simple and basic substance of life too. Nowhere in either highly profitable business can you be assured of cleaner, healthier water to drink! Dr. B did advise, if you felt your drinking water supply was contaminated, to purchase a decent filter system if you plan on a lifetime commitment of drinking more water.

I don't think very many of us can dispute the need for a cleaner source of drinking water in our homes. Reports are brought to our attention every day, of what is being found in our drinking water supplies. There are so many different choices to pick from in home drinking water filtration systems. Some home water filter systems, can be as expensive as the electric water ionizers (which do not have great filters on them to begin with). Plus you won't be getting the great health benefits of ionized water with just a filter alone.

AlkaStream, finally, has the ability to bridge that gap at long,long last. In fact, the company is so dedicated to reaching their goal of affordability in every home that wants one, they have recently lowered the price of their non-electric ionized water filter by $100.00.

One person at a time, one household at a time the bridge is being built to introduce clean filtered, ionized water to those who have never even heard of ionized water before. And for those who have known about it, they are jumping on this opportunity faster than you can shake a stick at it.

Which is going to leave the electric water ionizer business in a bit of a state of shock on what they are going to do about their prices. Should be interesting...
