Water has a lot to do with the acid alkaline balance. Just as with different foods, different types of water can have a positive or negative effect on the body's pH level.

If you have been visiting this blog for a while then you have most likely know my story of how I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis, and then a whole host of other diseases in the months that followed. What I would like to mention is that Distilled Water had been my choice of water for almost 2 years prior to my getting sick. My diet was certainly not mostly alkaline (which would have helped) and I have since learned from the research found through AID (Ask Insider Doctors & Scientists) that distilled water leaches minerals from your body. I even put minerals in the distilled water as I knew that it did not have minerals in it. This did not over-ride the fact that it was drawing much needed elemental minerals from my body. Also, distilled water has a LOW pH.

This subject of water is near and dear to my heart as I have suffered long and hard with Chronic Pain -- from which there is no vacation from, day or night. I have learned how important water is and you will see articles pop up from time to time on this weblog pertaining to water -- it is just too important to pass by. Water can help heal anything from arthritis to vision problems.

How much water should we be drinking? Here is a formula from F. Batmanghelidj, M.D. the Author of 'Your Body's Many Cries for Water':

Take your body weight and divide it in half. That is how many ounces of water you should be drinking a day. If you weigh 160 lbs. then you should be drinking 80 ounces of water a day (that is about 2 1/2 quarts).

The best types of water to drink are:

  1. The Best: Pure Filtered Water
  2. Second Best: Bottled Water
  3. Use Sparingly: Distilled Water (one month max.)
  4. Avoid: Tap Water

An excellent site that is very easy to read and explains the different types of waters is . Please read Dr. Lam's site carefully...water is such an essential part of raising our alkalinity. He also warns about drinking distilled water long term.

By Emjae Johnson - Water Raises pH: Which Type of Water is Best?


Pretty interesting. Take a look at my site and then get in touch with me. I would like to know more info on your experiences getting rid of your pain.

Would like to know what brand of bottled water has better pH level . Thank you

This is a great question and with the many bottled waters that are on the market, it may change quite often.

As far as I know, other than mineral waters, which usually have a higher pH, the highest pH of a bottled water that I know of is Trinity. This is sold at most stores and I believe is from Idaho. The pH is quite high...somewhere around 9.4 or so, maybe even slightly higher. Other than this there is Aqua Pacific, Fiji and Evian which are all in the mid 7 range. I have been told that Walmart sells a water, by the gallon jug, that states on the bottle that it is in the mid 7's as well. You would have to read the labels as I was told it is under the Walmart brand label and they sell a few different kinds.

Adding high mineral sea salt will help to raise the pH of water because of the over 20 esssential minerals and over 50 trace minerals that is in the salt. This is a very health way to add minerals to your body and get the high pH water you need as well. Please refer to the article on this site about High Mineral Sea Salt.

Sea salts are not the same...many of the bleached sea salts are not as beneficial as you may think.

I hope this helps.

What about reverse osmosis filtered water?

1:44 PM  

Well, reverse osmosis, as I understand it is designed to remove heavy metals, toxins and will as well remove minerals in the water. This would include calcium and magnesium, etc. These minerals actually help to raise the pH of water so it seems that if they are being filtered out then the pH might not be as high...but then again, it would be better than NOT filtering it.

The pH would of course vary, depending on which filtering system you are using as well as what type of water you are starting with. There are a lot of sytems out there, I am sure some are better than others, but I have no clue as to which is better. I have used a few, but I personally use the BRITA...which is a portable system. I make sure not to use out dated filters, as any filter can be come contaminated after time.

After the water is filtered, I add 1 teaspoon per gallon of CELTIC SALT to replace the minerals and to raise the pH. It actualy improves the taste! Water is one of the best ways to absorb minerals because in order for our body's to assimilate minerals it must be in a liquid form and water is one of the most basic sources of minerals that God has provided for us.

Please read this article also found on this site for more information about CELTIC SALT and minerals:

Thanks Kelly for the interesting comment.

Iceland Spring, natural spring water from Iceland, has a natural pH level of between 8.45 and 8.7. It is also very low in minerals with only 48 mg/L. It has not been processed in anyway and nothing is added or taken out. Do you think this would be a healthy water to dirnk?

Iceland Spring sounds like a great product. I have never tried it, but it seems to be getting great feedback from users, and the pH level is right up there.

Water, as important as it is to our health, should not be our only focus...but this one sounds like a winner David.

Thanks for sharing this information with all of us.

One thing that can really help raise the pH is putting lemon juice in our water. It can kick up the taste, especially in hot weather, improve digestion, and of course raise our pH level...sometimes dramatically within a few weeks.

Fresh lemon juice, or even lime juice will do the trick. Lemons and limes can be squeezed in advance and then the juice can be frozen. There is a bottled lemon juice that has very few perservatives that is sold at Trader Joe's under their name label which may also be used, but only when fresh or fresh frozen is just too much for your schedule.

I purchased a water filter from a japanese company called enagic.. the water produced is as high as 9.5 ph. I feel better, my cholestrol is down, I have lost 40 lbs. my diabetes is gone.

8:12 PM  


I purchase some celtic sea salt from france but will only raise the ph of my water to 7.9 no matter how much salt is added to my drinking water. Does anyone know of a better salt that could raise the ph to 9 or 9.5?

3:56 PM  

Hello George~

Celtic Salt will not raise the pH up that high. I have never heard of salt that would raise water pH that high. If you find one that does let us know.

I have well water with many minerals. Is that healthy? I've been suffering a bad bout of hives for a couple of months.

10:26 PM  

This post has good info but is not 100% true.. The most healthy water to drink is Pure spring water from your local area! I am not talking bottled spring water but go out and FIND A SPRING! This water is the most pure you can drink.

Make sure it has a low TDS reading.

You can find a local spring in your area by going to

Bottle water is not always good there is some harmful chemicals in the plastic not to mention fluride and other chemicals. There are some good options though if you search around the internet.

Please do not take my post the wrong way but we need to get facts straight.

The best Alkaline Mineral Water is 'PH10' which i get from Auckland, NEW ZEALAND contact them for some 0064 9 8383236. It is excactly what the name suggests and is smooth and tasty unlike tap water or even some rain water.
