The body is perfectly capable of maintaining its own pH balance provided it receives the proper nutrients. When the body is not getting enough alkaline minerals from food and water, it must rob calcium from its own bones to neutralize acidity. This is not ideal and once the body's readily available alkaline mineral supplies are depleted, it becomes overly acidic.
It is important to note that water can be either naturally alkaline or artificially alkaline. Why? Naturally alkaline water contains the alkaline minerals the body needs to combat acidity. Artificially alkaline water, such as water from a typical alkaline water ionizer machine, has a pH that is artificially increased and does not have any more alkaline minerals than the original water used to supply the machine. Artificially alkaline water has also been proven to cause side effects, and from a chemical perspective, such a water cannot be found anywhere in nature.
"Eat what Nature provides. Whenever people have attempted to 'improve' on Nature, they go wrong." - Wallace D Wattles
It makes perfect sense. What benefits could artificial alkalinity provide when it passes through the stomach which has a constant acidic pH? Only the alkaline minerals found in naturally alkaline water can create alkalinity past the stomach. Artificially alkaline water is completely neutralized in the stomach and offers the body no additional alkaline minerals to combat acidity. Only naturally alkaline water has the minerals the body needs to combat acidity and build its acid buffering reserves.
When drinking artificially alkaline water continuously, side effects can develop. To read more about the two types of alkaline water and the side effects of consuming artificially alkaline water, please read the article Alkaline Water Exposed - What They Don't Tell You.
It is important to know the symptoms of acidosis because these are what alkaline water neutralizes.

Naturally alkaline, enhanced water helps to neutralize acids and remove toxins from the body. Alkaline water also acts as a conductor of electrochemical activity from cell to cell. Other alkaline water benefits include:
Because of its ability to hydrate the body and flush out toxins, AquaLiv Water (a naturally alkaline water available from the AquaLiv Water System) helps the body first by eliminating the toxins that can cause acidity. Then, it provides the body with alkaline minerals to help buffer acidity and build acid buffering reserves.
Regular surveys of AquaLiv Water drinkers have revealed a number of dramatic benefits. All AquaLiv Water testimonials have been verified as 100% authentic by TestimonialShield.com:
There are many health benefits associated with drinking alkaline water. So many, in fact, that if you are experiencing any health issues, alkaline water should be the first thing on your list to try. Without drinking an adequate amount of alkaline water daily, as nature intended, anything else you are doing to improve your health may be limited in its success.

"Through all my research, there is not a water filtration system on the market that can compare to the AquaLiv Water System. I am so impressed with these filter's superior capacity to not only remove physical contaminants, but go above and beyond standard water purification by erasing the electromagnetic resonance or "memory" of the contaminants as well. AquaLiv has brilliantly infused cutting edge technology into this very affordable system that for the first time allows you to have water in your home as pure and as clean as an artesian spring in nature. I recommend AquaLiv to all my patients so they too can hydrate and cleanse their body with energized living-water."
