. . Could alkaline water actually cause problems with your health? Here's what you need to know. 


0:00 Alkaline water 
0:30 Artificially made alkaline water 
0:45 The problem with alkaline water 

In this video, we're going to talk about alkaline water. Normally, bottled water, artisan water, or well water is alkaline. The reason why it's alkaline is because of the alkaline minerals. These minerals, as well as bicarbonates, make the water alkaline.

But, when a machine makes the water alkaline, it doesn't do it by adding minerals. Instead, it splits the water molecules with electricity to artificially make the water alkaline. 

In my practice, I noticed that many people who used artificial alkaline water had a pH of nine in the urine, which is very alkaline. The problem with having very alkaline urine is that you don't have any protection against harmful microbes. 

When you consume artificial alkaline water, it can neutralize the different acidic fluids in the body, which can create problems with digestion and urine. It can also affect the absorption of electrolytes. If you throw off the electrolytes, this could potentially create a problem with the heart. 

If you drink alkaline water, it may be best to get natural alkaline water and not artificial alkaline water.
