Our lifestyles instigate a plethora of ailments and sicknesses in the workings of our bodies.  The Environmental Protection Agency has stipulated that our water, soil, food and atmosphere have become contaminated with toxic chemicals due to the inability to dispose of them safely (EPA, 2008). The human body was created to handle levels of toxicity but not at the rate Americans ingest daily….

Hydration and Benefits of Alkalinity 

The low level toxicity produces acidic effects in cells and as a result; immunity becomes taxed, and possibly intolerant to things that never bothered the metabolism before.


Acid metabolism in turn affects the flora and fauna of our intestines and can “off-set” the microorganisms that are responsible for homeostasis or balance resulting in the proliferation of single cell bacteria, which cause extraneous circumstances and syndromes autoimmune in diagnosis.

 These single cells love sugar (and what these single cells excrete when they eat sugar is toxic) and along with too much protein in ones diet can be the make or break of over acidification. Today in science common knowledge purports that disease, chronic illness and infection cannot survive in an alkaline environment.  If a person can alkaline their bodies he or she would stave off the effects of the likes of acidic anaerobes such as cancer or other “bugs” science refers to, i.e. lupus, MS, CFS, RA (Synderhealth, 2008).


What if the reader learned that no one is hydrated and that most people are in an acidic syndrome?


“So you are asking how does one alkaline their metabolism? Drink more water you say?  You may ask is my metabolism already alkaline?  You may say to yourself, is that not what green food drinks are about?  You might say I am a vegetarian and that is supposed to alkaline me right?” The second part to this article will explain these questions and provide you with a food list of highly alkalizing foods as well as foods that are less alkalizing.
