According to the words of Latin writer Publilius Syrus, good health and good sense are two of life’s greatest blessings. Our common sense typically dictates that we wholly rely on medical professionals to treat health issues, such as acid reflux disease. But what if we told you that you can take matters into your own hands when it comes to reducing or preventing acid reflux? At Peak Alkalinity, we’re committed to helping you discover optimal health from the inside out.
What is Acid Reflux?
Acid Reflux Disease, also known as GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease), is a digestive disease in which food and digestive acid from the stomach irritate the esophagus. This happens AFTER the food has been ingested and comes back up into the food pipe. Symptoms include chest pain, heartburn, acidic taste in the mouth, bad breath, nausea, breathing problems, and more.
Problems with Popular Treatments
In less severe, isolated cases – having a few sips of water or taking an over-the-counter antacid tablet can do the trick. When it comes to chronic acid reflux, long-term exposure to acidic substances can lead to more complications such as complete deterioration of the esophageal lining or esophageal cancer. The most common treatments for chronic acid reflux are prescription antacids, H2 blockers, proton pump inhibitors, and prokinetics. The problem with these treatments is that they can either disrupt or unnaturally alter the physiological processes and substances in our bodies. It’s the classic case of treating the symptoms as opposed to the root cause of the disease.
How Alkaline Water Can Help
Alkaline water is a powerhouse in preventing diseases since such pathogens cannot thrive in an alkaline environment. Alkaline water has a pH level ranging between 8.0 and 14. Much of the tap or bottled water we drink is actually on the mildly acidic side, ranging between 6.0 and 7.5. According to studies published in medical journals, alkaline water at an 8.8 pH level inactivates human pepsin, a digestive enzyme that wreaks havoc on your esophageal lining. In addition, alkaline water acts as a good acid-buffer that can decrease the acidity levels in your stomach and throughout your body.
Our line of products and services provide health benefits and a new outlook for our customers. It’s more important than ever to keep our bodies as pure as possible, and there’s no better way to do this than by drinking water that gives us exactly what we need and keeps the pH levels in our bloodstream at the optimum level for great health. Aside from reducing acid reflux, you might also enjoy improved energy, boosted metabolism, rejuvenated skin, a strengthened immune system, and more just by drinking alkaline water. Now that makes a lot of sense.
