Alkaline water from a a water ionizer, however is much easier to adapt to your eating lifestyle.  Not only does it help you achieve that 80/20 alkaline to acidic balance, it also hydrates your body as much as three times more effectively than regular water because the water molecule has been reduced.  The minerals in the water are negatively charged making them much easier for your body to absorb.  Also alkaline ionize water is full of bound oxygen plus negative hydrogen ions that are nature's original antioxidant.  Just carry a water bottle around full of ionized, alkaline water while you are at work of school and drink a glass in the morning and before bed.

If you can drink alkaline ionized water while also eating a sensible diet and incorporating alkalizing activities into your lifestyle such as meditation or prayer, your body will balance

Sang Wang, scientist, inventer and drinker of alkaline water for seventeen years says the problem with trying to alkalize with food is that unless you can afford organic, you will metabolize a large amount of pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and other chemical residue. If drink too much alkaline water, it will simply pass through the kidneys and flush away any germs that might be there.

Acid comes from three sources - food, pollution and stress, of these three stress is the greatest problem.  One shot of adrenaline can neutralize and acidify an alkaline diet.  So stress management as well as diet management is essential in maintaining an alkaline body
