|A huge thank you to everyone who filled out our survey, your feedback is very important to us! It would mean so much to us if you left a review on google or facebook!
|1 John 4:16 So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.
Alkaline refers to the pH level of the water. The pH level measures how acidic or alkaline a substance is on a scale of 0-14. For example, lemon juice (pH 2) and vinegar (pH 3) are both very acidic, while baking soda (8-9 pH) and milk of magnesia (10-11 pH) are both very alkaline. At pH 8-9, alkaline water has a higher pH than regular drinking water, which is around 7. Alkaline water can have benefits such as:
- Weight Loss
- Better Hydration
- Increased Athletic Performance
- Increased Energy
- Improved Clarity
- Boosted Immune System
- Promoted Healing and Longevity
There have been many studies that have found that alkaline water can be extremely effective in decreasing acid reflux by inactivating the enzyme pepsin. Alkaline water can also reduce the blood viscosity, allowing the blood to flow through the body with more ease after an intense workout.
Drinking more water, especially alkaline water, can help people who struggle with urinary incontinence. One source states,
“Drinking more water may actually help and does not exasperate the problem. Your body must have water to function properly and drinking less of it can irritate the bladder and increase urination frequency. Water is pure and your body uses it to flush out excess amounts of acid and bacteria. Sipping water all day long is a good habit that you can try to help your incontinence to improve.”– https://freedrinkingwater.com/water_health/incontinence-treatment-drinking-filtered-water.htm
Alkaline water can also accelerate the excretion of melamine, preventing the accumulation in the bladder that can cause stones. Low urine pH can indicate metabolic syndrome, manifesting in symptoms such as kidney stones, high cholesterol, unstable and high blood sugar, unstable and high blood pressure, weight problems, and more. Drinking alkaline water can keep you hydrated, increase the pH of your urine, and keep infection-causing bacteria low.
According to the National Association for Continence:
- An estimated 12.2 million adults have urge incontinence
- An estimated 17 million adults in the US have daily Urinary Incontinence, and a further 33 million also have the overlapping condition, Overactive Bladder
- Approximately 1 out of 3 women over the age of 45, and 1 out of every 2 women over 65, have stress urinary incontinence, affecting 15 million women
- OAB and UI are about twice as frequently occurring in women as in men.
At His Therapy Wellness Center, we want to help anyone suffering from urinary and bowel urgency and incontinence, and any other pelvic health issues. Please let us know how we can help improve your health concerns by giving us a call at 864-534-1780, emailing us at email@example.com , or visiting resources on our website www.histherapy.net. We hope you have a blessed day!
The question is not ‘Will my insurance cover this?’ but ‘Whom can I trust to give me the best care for my money?’ This is the pressing question many are asking themselves more and more as healthcare becomes difficult to afford. Insurance may pay only after deductibles have been met and even then may only pay a percentage of your bill.
At His Therapy, we are a cash based practice. We believe we can give you more care for less. To understand our value we have put together a chart to demonstrate the affordability of a cash based practice.
Imagine a practice that doesn’t demand your insurance card and ID before they say hello. Imagine a practice where money doesn’t get in the way of patients getting to know their therapist.
