An Alkaline Body For A Healthy Pregnancy
Paying attention to alkalinity is something that is necessary in today’s world due to the volume of toxins, pesticides and plastic that we are exposed to every day. By restoring our alkaline nature, we can reverse many debilitating conditions and provide a healthy start for the next generation. Alkalinity is quickly becoming the most important consideration for a healthy pregnancy in today’s world. I have treated numerous women trying to conceive as well as having a healthy birth after numerous miscarriages and failed attempts. Most often, the reason turns out to be a body system that is full of acidic waste which is burdening the adrenals, the thyroid, the kidneys and the immune system. This can be due not just to exposure to toxins, heavy metals, pharmaceutical drugs and pesticides, but often to a poor diet, water full of chemicals from plastic bottles and frequent exercise without eliminating the lactic acid that forms as a result.
During pregnancy, women will tend to lose large amounts of alkaline minerals to their growing baby. The baby will absorb these essential minerals in order to balance the acidic waste material that is produced by the baby which is stored in the placenta until birth. These acidic discharges are one of the main reasons for morning sickness, which is why morning sickness has traditionally been associated with a healthy, growing baby.
Drinking alkaline Kangen WaterTM can help to eliminate morning sickness by increasing the alkaline mineral base that is available to both mother and baby. By maintaining a more alkaline reserve, the level of acidic discharge will be reduced and the stress to the liver will also be reduced. This can help to prevent jaundice which is common in many infants born with liver stress. Even the loss of teeth during pregnancy is common when the body is trying to obtain more alkaline minerals such as calcium.
Even more serious pregnancy complications such as eclampsia is due to too much waste material in the blood and an overload of kidney function. By maintaining a more alkaline fluid reserve, the buffering requirements of the kidneys is reduced and the strain on the kidneys is reduced. Pregnancy creates a very high demand for water, and so even things like tea, coffee, alcohol and other dehydrating beverages can really create symptoms of dehydration throughout pregnancy. Higher levels of hydration can also help with the absorption of essential prenatal vitamins and minerals, providing even more nutrients for the growing baby.
Studies over a 15 year time span in Japanese clinics demonstrated some amazing benefits that pregnant women experienced while drinking alkaline Kangen WaterTM: Substantial reduction in emesis, smooth delivery, reduced cases of jaundice, increased lactation, smooth and satisfactory growth of newborns, improvement in hyperbilirubinemia in newborns.
At our clinic in Boston we have a comprehensive prenatal program which includes a diet high in alkaline foods and highly alkaline Kangen Water©. This water is the only ionized water to be used in Japanese hospitals and it has provided these amazing benefits for more than 35 years. Paying attention to alkalinity is something that is necessary in today’s world due to the volume of toxins, pesticides and plastic that we are exposed to every day. By restoring our alkaline nature, we can reverse many debilitating conditions and provide a healthy start for the next generation.
