How You Can Start Alkalizing Your Body Today

It has been great to see in some of the comments for our blog that readers are very aware pH balance.  A few even commented on how they only drink HIGH pH water.  I think this is great.  In the last few years there has been a noticeable change in the bottled water market.  The next time you are at your grocery store take a very close look at the bottled water section.  You will notice a that a fair number of companies now advertise on their labels the pH level of their water.  Some companies take great pride in their high level of pH.  These are the waters that you want to purchase (if you drink and purchase bottled water).  Look for labels that have a pH of 7.5 or higher. 

If you don’t like bottled water or if you just want to save money you can make your own Alkalizing water at home.  It is extremely simple.  First make sure that your water is filtered as much as possible (if you are getting your water straight from the tap).  A very simple and inexpensive way to filter your water is by using a Brita Pitcher Filter System.  Brita makes one of the quickest and easiest products to filter your water.  You can find out more about Brita and their products at  I would also encourage you to use Google or Ebay and search for coupons to save even more on purchasing a new Brita system or on buying additional filters.

After you have filtered your water simply add a dash of baking soda to your water.  Again, this is an extremely simple and affordable way to alkalize your water at home.  This is a simple step that you can easily incorporate into your daily routine to move your health towards alkalinity and away from acidity.

    Is that a dash of baking soda to the whole Brita pitcher or to each glass?

    • Sonya,

      Hello. Great question. For a glass (12 oz) I would recommend a small dash. For the Brita pitcher definitely a bigger dash…it should be an amountwhere you can tell there is a very slight taste difference to the water…but not so that it is overwhelming. You can also squeeze a couple slices of lemon into your Brita pitcher to add a little bit of pep and flavor.

      Yours In Health!

    Hi Gary!
    Thanks for sharing how to make water alkaline!

  6. Kevin Hogan says:

    are there companies that have a good or bad record of reporting pH accurately or not?
    do you trust certain companies more than others?

  7. Naomi Bettencourt says:

    I saw your comment about adding lemon to the water, and I got confused because I always thought lemons were acidic. But I found out that even though the lemons are acidic, once they are metabolized, they have an alkalizing effect on the body. How interesting is that?

    I love my Brita water pitcher! It is important to look for coupons b/c the filters are rather spendy. Luckily coupons are usually easy to find.

    Gary, it just occurred to me who you are! I bought your wife’s book about healthy living! Cool.


  9. Once again I have learned something new. I’m curious to find out what the dash of baking soda tastes like, if anything. Will definitely try it as well as check out bottled water. Do you physically feel the benefits of this process or is it something that is a healthy practice but you may not “feel” on a daily basis…

  15. Very useful info! Are there any standards bottled water companies have to meet to prove their water is the pH level it says on the label?


  16. John Moulder says:

    Have for many years used a filter jug in the refrigerator for drinking water . Works a treat .

  17. Hi Abundant Health,

    We LOVE Brita in my family! My NY based actress sister does QVC and store demos for Brita. And thank you for the Baking Soda dash tip for increasing the alkaline level of my basic drinking water. I’ll give it a taste and a try. I’m wondering how it will taste.

    When I’m really good, I take a dried Greens supplement which is the dried equivalent of Wheat Grass or Barley Grass juice. Perhaps in a future post you could address using those? Or Wheat Grass versus Barley Grass juices? Your thoughts? I look forward to reading about them in the future.

    Happy Dating and Relationships,
