Ionised acidic water
Ionised acidic water is obtained through the process of electrolysis in a container separated from the alkaline water receptacle. Ionised acidic water has a weak positive electric charge. It can be distinguished by its sour taste and acidic odour with a slight whiff of chlorine.
The unique characteristics of acidic water (otherwise called dead water) are determined by the presence of negative chlorine, sulphur, phosphorus and hydrogen H+ ions in its composition. The greater concentration of hydrogen ions means stronger acidic qualities and lower pH values. Ph is a negative hydrogen ion concentration logarithm and is also known as the hydrogen index. As the concentration of hydrogen H+ ions increases in the fluid, its pH value drops. This means that acidity increases and alkalinity decreases.
The pH value of acidic water ranges from 6.0 to 2.4 (the lower the value, the more acidic the water). Regular consumption of acidic water acidifies the body and boosts oxidation levels, which is why it should only be used externally. However, in certain cases of infectious disease, acidic water can be consumed in small quantities and for a short period of time. Consult with your physician before you begin.
The ORP values of acidic water are positive. This means that the fluid has oxidative qualities due to its electron insufficiency. High positive oxidation potential characterises the ability of the strong oxidisers in acidic water to snatch away electrons from the foreign bodies that find their way into the human body. As they take the missing electrons away from microbes and bacteria, the acidic agents destroy them. As a result, the acidic water acquires bactericidal, fungicidal, antiseptic, anti-allergenic and anti-inflammatory characteristics.
It is interesting to note that the operational mechanism of acidic water is analogous to that of the body’s immune system. In this system, macrophages or white blood cells, or “big eaters” in Greek, swallow and destroy cellular debris, foreign bodies and microbes in the human body.
Research has shown that acidic water destroys bacteria of the staphylococcus, streptococcus, e. coli, shigella and salmonella genera. A number of clinical studies have confirmed the beneficial effect of acidic water in cases of chronic tonsillitis, salmonella poisoning, dysentery, staphylococcal skin infections, eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, trophic ulcers, etc. Another amazing feature of acidic water has also been discovered: acidic water destroys only pathogenic bacteria.
