One of the body’s main ways of discarding minerals that it doesn’t need is through urination. It’s a common process, most people do it at least once a day. But it’s also so common that we don’t think about it until we’re having issues actually doing so.
You can tell a lot by your urine- the color, the smell, the thickness- all of these factors change by what your body is going through. Urine can also be more acidic than basic. When this happens, your body is telling you that it is dehydrated.
One main bladder issue that people face due to acidic urine is a syndrome called interstitial cystitis. This condition causes irritation and inflammation in the bladder, which can be quite uncomfortable. However, there are ways to alleviate this syndrome and its effects on the body. If you eat a diet with plentiful green vegetables, stay away from spicy foods, don’t drink alcohol or smoke, and stay away from artificial sweeteners, it will help raise the pH in your body.
Another great way to help with this syndrome is to drink more water so that the acids in your body become diluted. However, drinking regular tap water or bottled water is not likely to help because of the contamination that occurs during water treatment processes. Chlorine, fluoride, arsenals, prescriptions, and other bad chemicals seep into city and bottled water, raising the pH to a very acidic level.
Acidic water can actually cause some very dangerous health issues. The acids can take away healthy minerals from your organs and bones over time, leaving your body without the ones it needs to thrive.
This is where alkaline water comes in. Alkaline is a pH-raising benefit to water that adds healthy minerals. The effects of drinking alkaline water are that acids in your bloodstream are reduced, your metabolism increases, and your body can absorb nutrients a lot easier. Alkaline can not only help alleviate bladder issues, it can help with overall health. Most doctors recommend alkaline water to patients with bladder issues and other health issues like asthma. Dr. Jamie Koufman and Dr. Nikki Johnston found that alkaline water can reduce the symptoms of acid reflux. Some studies even suggest that alkaline water can help cancer.
How do you get alkaline water? From an alkalizer machine. An alkalizer is attached to a water source like an under-the-sink filtration system or whole-house filtration system and reduces acidity of the water that flows through it. Some alkalizers cost thousands of dollars, but there are more affordable systems in the market today.

Research from the University of Georgia has shown that diseased cells are surrounded by unstructured water and healthy cells are surrounded by structured water. Alkaline water only has 5-6 clusters and is the best structured, hydrating, most readily absorbed water on earth. “Structured water” is highly soluble and can easily absorb the body’s minerals. For this reason, minerals, trace minerals, and vitamins combine with structured water to enable the journey of these minerals from the digestive tract to the bloodstream and into the tissues. Alkaline water helps neutralize the acidity of the body caused by stress, the modern diet, and pollutants. If you want pure quality alkaline water, buying a system is the best option. Filtercon Technologies has created an alkaline system that lasts 2-3 years with no maintenance. The system raises your pH to a level anywhere between 8.5 and 10.5, which is recommended by doctors and physicians for a healthy body. You’ll feel safe that you’re not drinking BPA chemicals leaching from plastic bottles and helping the environment. Below is a video explaining more about our alkaline system.

One of Filtercon’s biggest customers was Dr.Batmanghelidj. He was the author of Your Body’s Many Cries for Water. He understood how important it is to have good, clean, pure water for your body. Here are some wonderful tips on keeping you hydrated throughout the day.
- By the time you are thirsty, your body has lost more than 1 percent of its total water.
- Up to 60% of the human adult body is water.
- Drinking water helps flushes out bacteria and keeps the mouth moist.
- Drink water instead of drinking high calorie beverages to help control calories.
- Cold water can reduce inflammation
- Water helps your kidneys by transporting waste products in and out of cells.
- Maintaining good hydration can help maintain normal bowel function.
- Drinking water instead of three sugary drinks a week for a year could save 6,084 grams of sugar, which is 24,336 calories.
- Alkaline water provides superior hydration and nutrition at the cellular level.
- Alkaline also detoxifies cells more efficiently than standard drinking water.

Alkaline water is water with a potential hydrogen (pH) value of greater than 7, which is neutral. Water ionizers use a process called electro dialysis, which separates the water into alkaline and acidic streams. The alkaline side contains healthy ionized minerals like calcium, magnesium and potassium. Studies have shown that minerals in alkaline water are 30% easier to absorb than food-based minerals.
Properties of Alkaline Water:
• Higher pH fights metabolic acidosis
• Contains anti-aging antioxidants
• Hydrates better than plain water
• Tastes better than regular water
Home tap water contains a mixture of minerals, salts, and other substances, some of which are good for you, and some of which are not.
After many of the harmful elements are filtered out, a home water ionizer uses the electrodialysis process to separate the remaining minerals in the water into healthy alkaline minerals, and acidic minerals. During the process, some water molecules are split, releasing hydrogen and hydroxyl ions – charged particles.
The charged water ions – called hydroxyl ions – are short lived, but they combine with the minerals in the water to produce mineral ions, referred to in chemistry as hydroxides. Medical research suggests that alkaline water may get its antioxidant properties from these
Benefits of Alkaline Water
Chances are, even with a proper diet you are still not getting enough of essential dietary minerals in your diet to maintain good health. Studies indicate that alkaline water may be the best way to get your minerals and have associated it with these health benefits:
• Reduced rates of heart disease
• Healthy weight loss
• Improved digestive health
• Maintenance of bone density
• Improved athletic performance
Alkaline water has been used in Asia as a health supplement for years, and Asian countries rank highest in world health surveys. Used properly, alkaline water should be combined with a proper diet, exercise and healthy lifestyle to produce optimum results.
