There are many holistic approaches that one can take on the road to drug, nicotine, painkiller or alcohol addiction recovery including aromatherapy, acupuncture, homeopathy, and meditation–treatments that are as old as time and have a proven track record.
But did you know that drinking ionized alkaline water from an electric water ionizer can also help detox, balance, and nourish your cells, while cutting cravings and increasing the effectiveness of vitamins, minerals, and other treatments?
All drugs and alcohol are acidifying to the body. This means that consuming these substances upsets our delicate pH balance. Because our blood needs to remain at about 7.4 pH at all times in order to survive, our bodies rely on an internal alkaline mineral reserve in order to offset the acidity created by our daily diets and lifestyles.
Unfortunately, after years of poor eating habits and/or substance abuse, these reserves get depleted. Our bodies are then forced to borrow alkaline minerals from less crucial body parts like our eyes and bones in order to neutralize the overacidity and prevent death. This explains why the older we get, the more likely we are to need eyeglasses or be diagnosed with osteoporosis.
In addition to being overacidic, most Americans are also chronically dehydrated. Because our bodies rely on water for everything from transmitting messages between brain cells to digesting food and waste, we may be suffering from a number of dehydration-related ailments like memory loss, fatigue, constipation and many more.
One of the first steps to addiction recovery is ridding your body of the traces of the drug through a form of detox. What better way to cleanse your system of all the acidic substances than with water, nature’s cure?
Ionized alkaline water differs from tap and bottled water in many ways, including:
- It is alkaline on the pH scale, which can help with acid-alkaline and chemical imbalance
- It can better penetrate and detoxify your cells due to a smaller water molecule size
- It contains bioavailable ionized alkaline minerals to nourish your cells from the inside out
Ionized alkaline water is found in nature in fresh flowing waters and streams, where the friction of the water hitting the rocks creates an electrical charge that ionizes the water. Electrical water ionizers recreate this natural process so that anyone can drink fresh, ionized alkaline water from the comfort of their own home or treatment facility. All you need is a working outlet and faucet, and the Chanson water ionizer will produce ideal drinking water for years to come!
While everyone can benefit from a water ionizer, recovering addicts may find additional value from the machine in the form of detox and bioavailable minerals. Due to the acidic nature of substance abuse, your body is likely starved for alkaline minerals. Not only do water ionizers ionize the minerals found in the water, but they can also make any vitamins, minerals, or supplements you take with the water more easily absorbed by your body. Users report feeling cleaner, more hydrated, and more energized.
