You may have already heard about how cancer cells cannot survive in alkaline water. But, what is that all about exactly?
WHAT IS ALKALINE WATER?
There is something called pH (potential hydrogen) scale. This scale goes from 0 to 14. A substance (or an organism) with a pH of less than 7 is acidic, while a basic or alkaline substance has a pH of greater than 7.
Many people avoid tap water, and for a very good reason. It contains chlorine, antibiotics, hormones and other metals that will go straight into your system after you drink it.
This will weaken the immune system and make it easily susceptible to diseases.
When our bodies become too acidic, we experience low energy, fatigue, digestive issues, weight gain and other side effects which can be avoided by drinking pure water and eating fresh organic vegetables with a healthy acid/alkaline balance
IMPORTANCE OF ALKALINITY
Dr. Otto Warburg of Germany, who was a Nobel Prize winner in 1931, discovered that that up to 95% of all cancers have the acidic environment as the cause behind them. He also proved that cancers cannot thrive in an alkaline environment where the pH level is 7.36 or more.
According to Dr. Warburg, acidosis (excess of acidity) is not only connected to development of cancer, but it could also cause other diseases like osteoporosis, diabetes, heart disease and almost all other chronic diseases which we suffer from nowadays.
- 1 lemon
- 1/2 a cucumber
- 1/4 of a ginger root
- 1/2 a cup of mint leaves

- By adding new water, they can last up to three days.
- Drink the water first thing in the morning in order to get the optimum results!
How does it work?
Even though lemon has acidic taste, it offers numerous pH balancing properties. It is also very alkaline and is a potent antibacterial compound that can help treating everything from bad breath to cholera, and has even 22 anti-cancer properties!
