From the beginning the Scriptures say a lot about water. In Gen. 6:17 Yahweh is washing the evil off the earth with water! Jeremiah 12:13 says Yahweh is the fountain of living waters. And, of course, we must be immersed in the water of baptism in order to be adopted into the Body of Messiah.
It is absolutely crucial to provide all the parts of the body with a lot of this basic component. Chances are that you’re among the 75% of Americans who are chronically dehydrated.
In the beginning all water was alkaline. Pollution from so called civilization is still corrupting Yahweh’s creation. It turns out that the single measurement most important to your health is the pH of your blood and tissues; how acidic or alkaline it is. Just as your body temperature is rigidly regulated, the blood and tissues must be kept in a very narrow pH range. The human body is designed to be alkaline, and will go to great lengths to preserve that. A body insufficient in alkalizing minerals will seek these vital components elsewhere. Sodium or potassium will be leached from the blood, calcium from bone and cartilage, and magnesium from muscles. If the acid overload gets too great for the blood to balance, excess acid is dumped into the tissues for storage. Then the lymphatic (immune) system must neutralize what it can and try to get rid of everything else. Unfortunately, ‘getting rid of’ acid from the tissues means dumping it right back into the blood, creating a vicious cycle of drawing still more basic minerals away from their ordinary functions and stressing the liver and kidneys. The body creates fat cells to try to protect the vital organs. When you eat and drink to make your body alkaline, the body won’t need to keep that fat around anymore.
Chronic over-acidity corrodes body tissue and, if left unchecked, willinterrupt all cellular activities and functions, from the beating of your heart to the neural firing of your brain. An imbalance in the blood and tissue pH leads to irritation and inflammation and sets the stage for sickness and disease. So many of our diseases start with inflammation, that I cannot help but think of the curse in Deuteronomy 28:22,
“Yahweh will smite thee with a consumption, and with a fever, and with an inflammation, and with an extreme burning and with the sword, and with blasting, and with mildew, and they shall pursue thee until thou perish.”
The nastiest consequences of an overly acidic body, however, are the presence of bacteria, yeasts (or fungi), and molds. These microforms take advantage of the body’s weaker areas, poisoning and overworking them. In an acidic environment, they basically get free rein to break down tissues and bodily processes. They live on our body’s energy, or electrons, and use our fats and proteins (even our genetic matter, nucleic acids) for development and growth. Bacteria, yeast, fungus, and mold do not themselves produce symptoms in the body, their toxic wastes do. Nor do they initiate disease. They only show up because of a compromised internal environment that causes body cells to transform into bacteria, then yeast, and finally mold.
It is just as important to maintain an alkaline body as it is to monitor your fish tank water or swimming pool water. And, any gardener knows to adjust the soil pH in order to grow strong healthy veggies.
The small intestine must be alkaline in order for the food to be transformed into red blood cells. So the quality of the food you eat determines the quality of the red blood cells that determine the quality of your bones, muscles, or organs, etc. Hippocrates, known as the father of modern medicine, is noted as saying: “Let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food.” You are, quite literally, what you eat!
The number one over-the-counter remedy sold in the United States is antacids! Recurrent and chronic acid indigestion and heartburn are urgent messages our bodies are sending us.
The chaos of acid imbalance and microform transformation and then overgrowth is an entirely natural and orderly process when life is ending. The body automatically becomes acidic upon death. Once a body stops breathing, microforms thrive in the acid they love. They are the “undertakers” when we die; they decompose our dead bodies. Biologists call it the carbon cycle. It’s the literal meaning of “ashes to ashes and dust to dust.” Acid is what makes our corpses rot and it does the same thing to us when we are living! (A good book to read on this subject is The pH Miracle by Robert O. Young, PhD.)
So drink up! For best results drink two liters of purified alkaline water every day and the water of the Word. HalleluYah!
