The scale of pH, or potential hydrogen, ranges from zero to fourteen, so 7 is the neutral middle. Therefore, if the substance’s pH is less than 7, it is acid. On the other hand, if the pH is higher than 7, the substance is alkaline.
Yet, tap water that we drink contains hormones, chlorine, antibiotics, and other metals that directly enter our body system. This leads to numerous illnesses and weak immune system.
It is a fact that we were told that our general pH levels are affected by the food we consume. Namely, the Nobel prize winner, Dr. Otto Warburg found that 95% of all kinds of cancers are acidic, as they are a result of an acidic state of the body. In contrast, cancerous cells cannot survive in an alkaline environment.
Hence, he suggested that acidosis (excess acidity) is linked to not only cancer development, but to numerous other health issues, like various chronic diseases, osteoporosis, heart disease and diabetes.
Today, we will reveal the recipe of a detoxifying alkaline water with lemon, which can be prepared in 5 minutes.
Lemon hs powerful pH- balancing properties. Even though it is acidic in taste, it is inherently alkaline and regulates the pH of the body. Also, lemon acts as an incredible disinfectant and antibacterial, so it has 22 cancer- fighting properties, and can help in the treatments of numerous various conditions, from bad breath to cholera.
