I use the following in 1 gallon of springwater to make a concentrate:
1 tbsp pickling lime (calcium hydroxide)
1/2 tbsp Epsom Salt (magnesium sulfate)
1/4 tsp no-salt (potassium chloride)
1/4 tst baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) I originally used Sea Salt for the sodium but baking soda provides additional alkalinity..
vigorously shake to dissolve each time that some is used as follows:
I take 1 tbsp of the concentrate and dilute to 1 gallon of water.
I drink 2-4 glasses of this every day depending on my needs. Do not drink too much. Also, take vitamin D to help with calcium absorbtion. Reduce this amount if you experince any abnormal health signs.
My pH was very acid (approx. 5.8) a year and a half ago (2006) and the alkalyzing diet was not working fast enough.
My pH is now within normal range. It is important to use care not to over-alkalyze as this can be as bad as being too acidic. Get close to normal then reduce consumption of alkaline water.
Another important element is Iodine which is best painted on the bottom of the feet (lugol's Iodine).
