How Alkaline Water Helps with Allergies and Asthma


Autumn is quickly approaching. Lower temperatures and pumpkin patches. However, if you suffer from allergies or asthma-like thousands of others here on the Gulf Coast, you understand how these conditions can significantly impact the quality of life. No doubt like many other sufferers your medicine cabinet is stocked with both over-the-counter remedies as well as some prescription medications. But did you know simply changing your water can have a drastic impact on allergies and asthma? Today, Peak Alkalinity provides you with knowledge on how alkaline water helps with allergies and asthma.

A Word on Histamine
if you have allergies or asthma you have likely read about an important body compound called histamine. In fact, there could be “antihistamines” in your allergy staple supply. Histamine is a neurotransmitter with two main purposes. The first purpose is to regulate the body’s hydration. And, when your body is dehydrated it will release more histamine. This includes water you supplement your body by drinking but it also includes internal hydration conservation. Remember, histamine’s job is to keep you hydrated. When your body’s internal water is scarce, histamine is released. This causes contraction of smooth muscle such as that in the lungs, which is your body’s effort to conserve water. This, in turn, becomes the wheezing common in asthma. The second job of histamine is to fight off body invaders, such as allergens. Your body sees these as harmful intruders and triggers more histamine to be released, causing the runny nose and eyes you’ve come to dread during allergy season. This is histamine doing its job by giving your body a way of ridding the body of these harmful invaders.

The more dehydrated you are, the more histamine your body will release.

The Water/Allergy Connection
Many people choose to make one simple change before allergy season is in full swing. This change is switching to alkaline water. Replacing your normal drinking water with Peak Alkalinity high-quality alkaline water now, before the height of allergy season, can help your body prepare in advance. Because more histamine is released when your body is dehydrated, giving the body the utmost hydration in the form of alkaline water-ahead of time-will produce the highest level of hydration and build up your body’s defenses.

The Water/Asthma Connection
As mentioned above dehydration leads to more histamine release. For asthma sufferers, the hallmark of an attack is often wheezing as the lungs work overtime to supply air. Staying fully hydrated through drinking alkaline water naturally gives your body what it needs in the form of hydration. In turn, less histamine will need to be produced as your body recognizes this full hydration.

One simple change makes such an impact on allergies and asthma. Switching from regular tap or staple bottled water to Peak Alkalinity gives your body what it needs naturally.
