Alkaline water in the Natural Treatment of Blood Pressure and Raised Cholesterol.

Leading scientists say that high blood pressure can be a state of adaptation of the body to generalised long term dehydration . Many people are dehydrated and unaware of it. If you drink less than 8 glasses of water per day in addition to your regular diet you are probably in a state of sub clinical dehydration without knowing it.

In a bid to fill blood vessels with volume and normalise blood pressure due to chronic dehydration, the body through the constriction of the vascular system, forces the water from the vessel into the cell in order to deliver vital nutrients and oxygen. Such effort by the body can lead to high blood pressure which points to dehydration as being the root cause . Additional contributory factors to hypertension and raised cholesterol levels are excess tissue acid waste and the damaging effects of harmful free radicals.

Regularly drinking good health giving alkaline water, which is ionized and has antioxidant properties, is the ideal way to hydrate the body. It is a hugely valuable part of a natural treatment for blood pressure. Alkaline water helps to flush out acidic wastes and counteract damaging free radicals. This will help to lower blood pressure and cholesterol. Ideally combining the drinking of alkaline water with an alkaline diet and supplementing with alkalising superfoods will be very valuable to restore your body to health and restore normal blood pressure.

Alkaline water, the type of water that is best for the body due to its excellent hydrating properties and its ability to counteract excess acidity and free radicals. This can be combined with alkalising green superfoods to help to give the body the foundation for optimum pH balance and normalised blood pressure and cholesterol levels. The following are comments from leading scientists on the benefits of optimum hydration and alkalising for lowering hypertension and raised cholesterol.

Water expert Professor Won H Kim in his book ‘Water of Life: a cure for your body’ makes a number of interesting observations on the role of alkaline water for the improvement of blood circulation and the reduction of cholesterol.

He says as we have seen, irregular blood circulation can be called the beginning of all adult onset ailments. The major cause for this comes from acidic waste materials, which get piled up on vascular walls or clog capillary vessels. Crucial organs need a smooth supply of blood, but piled up waste on walls make vessels narrower. This coupled with clogged capillaries, results in raised blood pressure to supply blood. This is the general principle behind occurrence of hypertension. Alkaline reduced water resolves hypertension originating from residues of waste on vascular walls.

 Alkaline reduced water does more than just decrease the acidic wastes by alkalising blood; it is effective for hypertension because its superior power to conduct surface activity can melt effete matter stuck to vascular walls.

 He also commented on hypotension ‘If hypotension occurred from a lack of calcium ions, drinking alkaline water can cure it. Calcium ions are relatively abundant in alkaline reduced water, so it directly supplies the calcium the human body needs. Not only that, but it also frees the calcium ions trapped within acid salt (solidified by lumping together with acidic waste matter) so it can instantly settle the matter of calcium deficiency within the body even if calcium ions are not especially supplemented. Alkaline reduced water can treat hypotension as well as hypertension’.

 Dr F Batmanghelidj in his book ‘Water and Salt’ says that ” To prevent excess cholesterol deposits by the cells lining the arteries and the liver, you need to drink regularly especially an ample amount of water half an hour before food intake. By this action, the cells of the body will become well hydrated before confronting the concentrated blood after food intake. There will also be enough water for the processes of digestion and respiration without needing to tap into the water held inside the cells lining the blood vessels”

 Dr Theodore Baroody in his book Alkalise or Die states ‘ The heart is one of the most alkaline dependent organs in the body. It is partly innervated by the vagus nerve which functions best in an alkaline environment. The heart pumps about 520 quarts of blood an hour and about 13,000 quarts of blood a day. The blood, if not toxin free, puts a tremendous strain upon the heart. Correct heartbeat is altered by acid wastes. These wastes rob the blood of proper oxygenation, and degeneration of the heart follows. An alkaline system creates an ideal heart function.

 In the very informative book  The Acid Alkaline Food Guide by Dr Susan E Brown and Larry Triveri they say ‘ A number of scientific studies have illuminated the biological costs of our forced adaptation to chronic acidosis. The problems caused by this condition include the following among many others:

  •  The loss of potassium and magnesium stores from the body, with a resulting tendency towards hypertension (high blood pressure) and inflammation, as well as the pain associated with inflammation.
  • Increased fluid retention, resulting in the excesssive accumulation of fluids within body systems.’

Sang Wang, researcher, scientist and author who cured his own high blood pressure problem by drinking alkaline ionized water says the following in his book Reverse Aging. ‘ Dr Kancho Kuninaka, one of the pioneers of the alkaline water treatment in Japan, states that virtually without exception, the patients with high blood pressure have an acidosis condition. He has many successful clinical cases where the acid free high pH alkaline water lowered blood pressure.

 There are several plausible explanations for this phenomenon. Since the higher pH contains excess oxygen, the heart doesn’t have to work so hard. Another factor may be that the viscosity of the higher pH blood is low so the heart does not need to pump as hard. A further reason may be that the calcium ions in alkaline water may be dissolving plaque and cholesterol build up in the artery walls, thus opening up the passage.’

 He further states if your blood pressure is always high, chances are that your arteries are getting narrow (atherosclerosis) and it will take a long time, possibly a year or more, for that blood pressure to come down by means of alkaline water. It takes time to dissolve plaque and cholesterol build up, but eventually it will work. This slow process has no side effects. It lowers the blood pressure by eliminating the very causes of the high blood pressure.’


Drinking mineral alkaline antioxidant water is a very effective and convenient way for people to positively affect their health and give the body the ability to remove acidic wastes from the body including from the vascular system. It should be part of every natural treatment for high blood pressure. Alkaline water also provides antioxidants to neutralise free radicals, which play a leading role in degenerative diseases and the aging process. Giving your body a plentiful regular supply of good quality water will greatly assist to help in the natural restoration of good health and vitality. Combine this with taking an alkalising superfood will give your body the foundation to optimum pH balance. This will help enormously to lower blood pressure and control cholesterol.
