I’m vacationing at an all-inclusive resort in Mexico, so you can’t drink the tap water. The resort is not close to any stores. I find myself a bit stuck with only acidic bottled water that is about a 5 on the pH scale. I’ve never traveled and had only acidic water to drink! Every other place I’ve stayed (all-inclusive resorts) have a brand of bottled water that is usually a 7 or 8 pH.
EEEEKKSS! I never drink acidic water –
I’d rather go thirsty!
We want our drinking water to be a 7-7.5 pH minimum, as our blood is 7.365 pH. Drinking anything less adds to your acidic overload and your body has to work to neutralize the water, leaching alkaline minerals from your bones and body tissue to neutralize the acidic water.
So, as some of you know, I use my Portable Water Ionizer Sticks whenever I travel, and this time is no exception. I always bring lots of extras (6 sticks this time) because of the chance of them getting thrown out or lost. I also bring ConcenTrace Liquid Trace Minerals and Himalayan Crystal Salt that I add to every bottle of water I drink.
Consequently, both the trace minerals and salt also increase the pH of the water a bit, maybe one pH level or so.
By adding an ionizer stick, trace minerals and salt to each bottle, I am able to bring the pH up from about a 5 to a 9, Astounding, being the pH scale is exponential so pH 9 is about 10,000 times more alkaline than the original pH 5!! Make no mistake about it, these ionizer sticks are terrific! I only wish I traveled with my ORP Meter and could also validate the decrease in ORP too!

This is a photo of the before and after pH test. The yellow is the water right from the Cristal bottle. Yellow is about a 5 on the rainbow-colored pH scale and blue is approximately a 9 pH. The pH scale is a standard chemistry colored scale, and the testing liquid used is a standard chemistry testing pH reagent kit.
If the water started at a 7 pH, we would be looking at a green color for the untreated water, and, there would be no doubt of it reaching a purple 10 pH with the addition of the ionizer sticks, trace mineral drops and Himalayan crystal salt. That’s what I usually do, and it works like a charm. So well, that when I return home to my regular electric water ionizer, I never experience a detox reaction when resuming drinking my 4 quarts of high alkaline 10 pH water.

UPDATE: Did some further testing with the
pH Water Test Kit. The results are here:
Cristal Water plain : 5 pH
Plain, with trace minerals + H. salt: 6.5 pH
After 12 hours: 8.5 pH
After 24 hours: 10 pH – ASTOUNDING!
i NEVER WOULD HAVE THOUGHT it possible!
For those of you who either have ionizer sticks or are thinking about trying them, the easiest way to use them is one in each of two 16 oz bottles of good water (at least a 7 pH). Then, while you’re drinking one, the other one is ionizing. In this way you are constantly rotating your bottles throughout the day. In my case, here in Mexico, I’m rotating SIX bottles so they have plenty of time to ionize that acidic water, and work their magic!
