131 You can install an alkaline water ionizer / ioniser on your kitchen sink. It takes tap water, filters it and then using electrolysis, splits it into water containing mostly acid minerals and water containing mostly alkaline minerals. The two types of water come out in two separate pipes. Buy a model with titanium electrodes or platinum-coated titanium electrodes - they have an expected life of ten years, much longer than any other type of electrode. What is alkaline water? Several health writers maintain that the key to health and longevity is the management and disposal of acidic waste products. Alkaline ionised water can be rich in alkaline minerals, though of course it depends on what's in your tap water to start with. These alkaline minerals such as calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, iron, zinc, nickel and manganese help make your body more alkaline and remove toxic acid wastes from your body. Some models have a cartridge that lets you add crushed coral or other alkaline minerals. This is a good idea, especially if you live in an area with poor mineral content in the water supply (
). The ionizer removes some but not all of the acid-forming minerals from the alkaline water, depending upon the pH level you select. For example, at a pH of 9.0 about a third of the harmful added fluorides are removed. The same applies to the other acid-forming minerals. The sediment and carbon pre-filters remove the chlorine and particle matter. The alkaline water apparently has another characteristic - the water molecules are reconfigured into a lighter, simpler form that are more easily absorbed by your body and your cells. However, I have found no scientific evidence that this is possible. Another claim is that ionised alkaline water gives you an additional source of oxygen, provided in a body-friendly way. The effect is similar to deep breathing, exercise or sleeping in fresh air. Oxygen is an important degenerative disease treatment and anti-ageing therapy. Insufficient oxygen leads to many degenerative diseases. I heard one scientist say that yes, ionised water provides a raised level of oxygen in your blood, but it would not be much more than you would get from a few deep breaths. In defence of alkaline water, I did feel slightly energised after drinking it, and it did tend to keep me awake if I drank a glass before going to bed. All other people I know who have drank alkaline water did not report this effect. Many plants thrive on alkaline ionised water.
Diet, exercise and a support network are the main focus of those who follow the weight watchers diet. There are support groups that hold regular meetings which supporters can attend physically or online. Online or not, support and education are not lacking for weight watchers dieters.
is different and includes all 43 Essential Nutrients. South Beach Diet helps to control insulin levels by consuming unrefined slow carbohydrates. The proponent of this diet believes that low-fat regimes were not effective in the long run. The Raw Food Diet otherwise known as Raw Foodism follows a diet composed of foods and drinks which are not processed, plant-based foods and whatever is organic. Raw foodists suggest that three fourths of your daily food should be uncooked food. Most raw foodists are also vegans, not eating animal based foods. The Mediterranean Diet is a typical diet of those from southern Europe, which consists mainly of plants foods, fruits, nuts and beans, cheese and dairy products, meat of fish, poultry and red meat, plus moderate amounts of wine.
