How Alkalinizing the Body Promotes Detoxification
Dr. Peter L. Kopko, D.C.

Today’s common diet, which is rich in proteins from meat, dairy products and processed grains, has been shown to create what is called metabolic acidosis. The physiological systems of the body are heavily taxed by this acidic load, as evidenced by the fact that most Americans have highly acidic urine. The majority of patients tested in my office who are not vegetarians run a urine pH of 5-6, which in my opinion is overly acidic. What benefits could be achieved by making the urine more alkaline?

Let’s first look at the consequences of what produced the acidic urine. Metabolic acidosis most often results from the over-ingestion of the above mentioned food groups. The breakdown of these proteins create acidic byproducts that must be eliminated by the kidneys, thus producing acidic urine. This problem is further complicated by the ingestion of tap water, which itself has been found to be at best neutral or a pH of 7 and often acidic or below a pH of 7. When the body is in a chronic state of metabolic acidosis, our liver detoxification mechanisms are compromised. The liver enzymes that are involved in detoxification are referred to as phase I and phase II detoxification liver enzymes. These enzymes are highly pH-sensitive and are responsible for the chemical bio-transformation of toxins into water-soluble metabolites for excretion in the urine. These very same enzymes are enhanced by alkalinizing the urine to a pH of 7.1 to as high as 8.3. This very process is performed every day in emergency rooms to accelerate the excretion of ingested poisons.

In the acute medical setting intravenous sodium bicarbonate is used to alkalinize the urine to a pH of 7.5 to 8.3. The method by which urine alkalinization works to enhance toxin elimination is called ion trapping, which is the ability to enhance urinary excretion of weak acids in alkaline urine. Most poisons and toxins are acidic and weak acids. By creating a more alkaline physiological environment we can enhance and accelerate the detoxification process on an ongoing, daily basis. It is this chronic acidification process of metabolic acidosis that is hindering everyone’s ability to detoxify. This brings us to the question: What can we do to alkalize our bodies?

Drinking alkaline water daily would greatly enhance the physiological processes responsible for attaining and maintaining a relative blood and urine alkalinity. Everyone today is aware that we need to drink more and higher quality water. The issue of the water’s pH though has not been emphasized enough. Why not enhance the body’s alkalinity by drinking 6-8 glasses of alkaline water daily? How can this be accomplished?

It can be achieved by utilizing a home water filtration system that not only filters the water but adjusts the pH as well. In addition, the unit micro-clusters the water. This means that the large 15-molecule clusters of water are reduced to 5- to 6-molecule clusters. This process actually makes water “wetter,” allowing better hydration and delivery of nutrients to the cells. There is another positive aspect to the function of these machines: They create negative ions, which are natural anti-oxidants. That’s right. Your water can help neutralize free radicals and slow down the aging process.

I utilize the LIFE Ionizers™ water filtration unit both at home and in my office. My patients and my dog, Roswell, love the water.
