Testing The Water
My grandmother used to talk about ‘feeling something in her waters.’ I don’t think anyone probed the subject too thoroughly, but I don’t recall it being taken seriously as a means of measuring her health.
Day to day, we don’t talk about it much, but urine is a fantastic barometer of your overall health. A simple urine test can detect problems with your liver, urinary diseases, and can be an indicator of diabetes. And urine can be either acidic or alkaline, in the same way as other bodily fluids. Urination is how your body tries to rid itself of excess acids from the food you eat, and the liquids you drink.
Call The Doc?
Even without a testing kit or a medical professional to hand, a quick glance at your own urine can tell you if you’re dehydrated or that your kidneys might not be functioning properly (small amounts of dark yellow urine). If your urine looks cloudy, then you might be suffering from a urinary tract infection. If you see traces of red, then blood might be present. In all of these cases, you should make an appointment to seek medical advice.
When Pale Means Healthy!
Healthy urine is usually a pale yellow colour, and should not have an unpleasant smell. It should also have a pH of around 4 – 8 pH, although levels will rise and fall during the course of the day (urine tested in the morning tends to be more acidic). Low urine pH can indicate Metabolic Syndrome, which manifests as various symptoms, including;
- Kidney stones
- High Cholesterol
- Unstable and high blood sugar
- Unstable and high blood pressure
- Weight problems
Drinking alkaline water will help to increase the pH of your urine. Eating more vegetables will also increase it’s alkalinity. Alkaline water will hydrate you better and more efficiently than ordinary water. Drinking freshly ionized water is the fastest and easiest way of rebalancing your body and restoring a sense of health and well being.
Maybe my grandmother knew something about ‘her waters’ after all!
