8 Reasons to Drink Alkaline Water by Diane Shawe

The effects of drinking Alkaline water on our body

We’ve all heard that drinking water is good for us and we’re often told to drink around 2 litres a day. But all waters are not equal.

I work with a lot of clients who are experiencing hair loss, low energy, joint aches and pains and even weak nails. I had those same issues until I started to explore the benefits of drinking good quality water. What I mean by this is alkaline water? 

I was reading and watching a lot of healthy eating books and videos by Dr Sebi  and he kept mentioning Alkaline foods and drinks. So I set out to find out how I could drink Alkaline water everyday effortlessly and came across pH Replenish which I will introduce you to later.  However what I  really wanted to do is share the benefit of drinking alkaline water.

So does alkaline water have even more health benefits than regular tap or bottled water?

Firstly, why is drinking all that water so good for us? 

Over half of our body is water! Our cells, organs and bones all need water to function properly. In fact, our brains and hearts are made up of about 70% water.

Although drinking water doesn’t seem very glamorous, if we become dehydrated we can quickly begin to lose concentration and focus, become lethargic and have sugar cravings. In the long term, dehydration can result in organ failure and humans can only survive for 3 or 4 days without water.

pH Replenish water Pitcher

Regular tap water usually has a neutral PH of 7 (although it can be lower) whilst alkaline water has a PH over 7. 

OK, So water is good for us. But what’s the difference between regular water from the tap and alkaline water?

7 is neutral and any lower than 7 is acidic. As an example, corrosive liquids like lemon juice have a PH of around 2.5.

Water usually has a natural PH higher than 7 which comes from the minerals and salts found in the earth. But as the water passes through our man-made pipes and water distribution systems it loses a lot of it’s minerals and as a result the PH levels drop.

The blood in our bodies has a PH around 7.4 and the systems in our bodies work hard to maintain that level. Many alkaline water fans believe that drinking filtered water with a higher PH means that we are giving our bodies a helping hand to keep to that healthy PH of 7.4.

Are there any other advantages to drinking alkaline water? 

1. Reducing acid levels within our bodies

It’s widely believed that drinking alkaline water can help to reduce or balance the acid levels within our bodies.

Having too much acid in our body can result in a long list of issues including fatigue, confusion, joint pain and inflammation, headaches, an elevated heart rate and digestion problems. This ‘acidosis’ occurs when our kidneys cannot remove all the excess acid from our body.

Acid in our body can also strip important minerals like calcium and magnesium from our bones which can lead to diseases like osteoporosis.

Cancer is also known to thrive in acidic environments and struggles to survive in alkaline environments. The opportunity to reduce acid in the body could be a significant benefit of drinking alkaline water for many people.

2. Anti-oxidant effects

Alkaline water is high in anti-oxidants. Anti-oxidants are great for our body and our overall health. They help us to keep repairing our cells to keep us looking and feeling fit and healthy.

3. Anti-aging

Another benefit that drinking alkaline water can have for our bodies is an anti-ageing effect. A 2016 study on mice which ran for three years suggested that drinking alkaline water increased their life span significantly.

4. A treatment for acid reflux

A report by Dr. Jamie Koufman concluded that alkaline water with a PH of 8.8 can work as an effective treatment for people who suffer from acid reflux. Alkaline water has the ability to neutralise the stomach acid causing this unpleasant disease.

5. Hydration

The molecules in alkaline water are smaller than in our regular tap water. This means that our bodies can absorb alkaline water more easily without that bloated feeling that regular water can sometimes give you.

6. Reducing high blood pressure

One study carried out in Shanghai discovered that drinking alkaline water for 3 to 6 months brought high blood pressure, high blood sugar and high blood lipid levels back to normal.

7. Decreasing blood thickness

A paper Weidman et al found that drinking alkaline water after exercise helps to thin out the blood faster then normal water. This is useful to aid recovery after exercise and could be potentially life saving for individuals suffering from thickened or hardened arteries who want to improve their fitness with less risk.

8. Preventing obesity

Many alkaline water enthusiasts report that it helps with weight loss. Backing up this claim, a 2013 study found that when obese mice drank alkaline water for 7 weeks they lost weight compared with mice drinking regular water but eating the same diet.

The benefits of drinking alkaline water are very promising and many people who drink alkaline water report considerable health benefits. However, many of these studies and reports have only been carried out in labs or on a small scale so it would be nice to see more research demonstrating the many benefits of alkaline water.

Are there any side effects to drinking Alkaline water?

As with anything, if you consume too much there can be negative effects. Although it is extremely unusual, an over consumption of alkaline products could lead to alkalosis. Having too much alkaline in the body can bring on the symptoms of nausea and vomiting. However, if we drink alkaline water alongside a healthy and varied diet we would be very unlikely to experience this effect.

Slowly increasing the amount of alkaline water that we drink allows our bodies to adapt to the increased mineral content and higher PH and reduces the likelihood of any unwanted side effects.

How can I get alkaline water in my own home? 

Installing a water filter is the easiest way for us to access unlimited alkaline water and Invigorated Water offers a variety of alkaline water filter systems to suit every home.

or you could start off with a pouch  https://amzn.to/3DtG5Aa or water pitcher.

Click to buy one today.

Counter top filters for kitchens with plenty of space hold enough water for the entire family. Smaller pitcher filters will fit easily into the fridge door where you can keep them cool. 

Or, our faucet filters are a great option to easily provide alkaline water in your home and are easy to install.

If you are on the go and want to make sure that you have your alkaline water with you, try one of our bottle filters. Not only do they make your water taste better, they also look great.

You can also benefit from using alkaline water in your shower. 

When you shower, water is vaporized into steam which you inhale as you shower. By installing a shower filter such as the PH Rejuvenate shower head filter,  which increases the PH of your water you’ll know that you are breathing in safe, alkaline steam rather than potentially harmful, acidic water.

Showering with alkaline water can also be good for your skin. One study found that applying alkaline water to the sun damaged skin of mice helped to reduce the damage. Alkaline water has an anti-inflammatory effect that was also seen in people bathing in high PH spring water. Many of our customers report that their hair and skin feels noticeably softer and smoother after showering under our shower head filters.

Another advantage of the Invigorated Water filters is that they can remove any unwanted toxins, chemicals and heavy metals from our drinking water whilst adding in healthy minerals like magnesium and calcium. 

Pollutants often work their way into our water supply and can be missed by our government water treatment stations, particularly if our water is carried through old pipes, across long distances.

Increasing the PH of your drinking water to make it alkaline, removing pollutants and adding in the healthy minerals allows your body to thrive. By choosing to drink filtered, alkaline water you are looking after your health in one simple, easy step.

How to Create Trackable Social Media Links For Your Business by Diane Shawe

We can all agree tht social media plays an important part in sharing your message, services or products. But how do you start tracking what you have posted and how can it help your business, product or brand. I was researching this and have the following this to share with you.

It is important to set up a social media strategy to align with your business goals, and pulled together either paid or free social monitoring services, you’ve got one more habit to get into: tracking. From one fellow community manager to another, you know how important it is to know how one tweet performed versus another, or if one blog post rocked on one social network over another. This can only happen by having the right tracking in place.

Why Use Trackable Sharing Buttons

Not all sharing buttons are created equal, which is why you should pick sharing buttons that will give you a good signal of what’s going on in your site. You may see some insight in your analytics that tell you people visited your site, and some of them were from social. But to really know how and where your community is sharing your content, your sharing buttons should tell you.

How To Create Your Own Share Links

1) Go to http://www.sharelinkgenerator.com/.

2) Choose the social network you want people to share your content on.

3) Fill in the blanks.

4) Download a social button icon.

5) Make the icons clickable using your share link.

By using the right sharing buttons to help you see which social network is most popular among your audience, you’re going to understand your community better. Who knows? There may be a strong niche community reading your content in a social network you’re not actively engaging. These are a community manager’s dream gems to find!

Why Use Trackable Follow Buttons

Do you know, off the top of your head, how many social followers your site got for you this week? If your follow buttons were trackable, you’d be able to get this number without much digging in your analytics. And wouldn’t it rock to be able to tell your teammates you know that most of your Instagram followers came from your site? (This happened to us, actually!) As a community manager, this is the type of understanding that’ll open your eyes into exactly how your audience is engaging with your content. Discover which social networks your audience is most engaged with, and how your site is helping you drive engagement off your domain with trackable follow buttons.

Why Us Trackable Chatbots

Don’t lift a finger and still deal with your enquiries 24/7

The next big thing to hit SME’s is Chatbots Using Artificial Intelegence.
The number 1 complaint about launching and running a online business or attracting responses to a posting is generating enough enquiries to make a sale or even responding to all the enquiries within 24 hours.!

Chatbots can assist you and there is “No Need To Lift a Finger Because some of the Proven System Will Do The Work And Get You More Leads!”
The data coming out now is that more and more people are moving to online communications and shows that you need to start leveraging Chatbots to streamline customer communications, problem solving and sales.
Individuals are using messaging Chatbots for many different reasons. However, the key things your customers want from any communication is quick response, help with there enquiry, ability to make appointments or make a purchase or have a problem attended to quickly.

Why Use Trackable URLs

You can automatically generate unique hashes appended to all of your site’s pages to help you generate unique links that you can then use to push to social. Address bar sharing adds a unique set of characters to the very end of your URL that will make that URL unique. (And don’t worry, this will not negatively affect your SEO.)

The reason you’ll want to do this is if you’re trying to monitor how the same content performs on different social networks, and which messaging performed best on the same topic.

There’s nothing more frustrating than spending so much time creating awesome content, and having tons of Tweets, tiktok and instagram out there to drive traffic to your pages, and then not being able to tell which phrasing or timing actually worked best.

Go beyond the pageviews and visits by making all your site’s URLs generate uniquely. You’ll then even be able to catch where a big segment of your traffic came from.

How to embed a tweet using the Twitter website

Open Twitter in a web browser, log in if necessary, and find the tweet you want to embed.

Click the three dots at the top right of the tweet.

In the dropdown menu, choose “Embed Tweet.”

The Twitter Publish page should appear. …

When you’re done, click “Update.”

Why Use Analytics

Tying all of that data together into an easy-to-read dashboard is usually the hardest part of a community manager’s job, but lucky for you, AddThis’ dashboard pulls all of this information for you in one place.

The dashboard lays out in crisp and clear graphics how all of your audience members engaged with your site, which tools they used to engage, and which content they liked the most.

Know exactly which social network is growing the most from your site, and which is being shared to the most. Know all this by just scanning your dashboard (without drowning in search queries and exported spreadsheets).

10 Health Benefits You Can Gain From Cassava (Jamaican Bammy)

What I did not know about Jamaican Bammy for instance it can help with weightloss and Migraines!

jamaican bammy 10 health benefits
What is Jamaican Bammy?

I have found myself looking back at some of the specially prepared dishes my granma and mum use to prepare to find out if there was any nutritional benefits to them or just trandition.

One of the dishes I remember was fried fish served with Bammy, I found it hard to chew but my grandad and dad seemed to enjoy it immencely.

So what is Bammy?

I found out that it is made from Cassava flour which is made from a root vegitable.

Cassava also call Manihot esculenta

Cassava or scientifically called Manihot esculenta is a type of vegetable root or tubers. Cassava is a food source that is rich in nutrients. Although there are not many devotees.

The carbohydrate content in the tuber is so high that it is third, after rice and corn. Because it has health benefits, cassava is a staple food in various developing countries.

A warning about the process

However, the wrong processing of cassava can reduce its nutritional value because vitamins, minerals, fiber, and starch tend to disappear when cooking.

Cassava in it’s raw state must be cooked properly before consumption, otherwise cassava can cause acute poisoning because of the naturally occurring cyanide content in the raw state.

If not prepared properly, tubers that are rich in carbohydrates can even cause paralysis or death.

With that said, I recommend it is better to buy the flour or flat bread instead of trying to make your own!

Nutrient content in cassava

The most effective way to maintain the health benefits of cassava and the nutritional value of cassava is to boil it.

The nutritional value of cassava for a dose of 100 grams of tuber contains 160 calories of energy, 0.3 g of fat, thiamine 0.087 mg, riboflavin 0.048 ml, niacin 0.854 mg, vitamin B6 0.088 mg, iron 0.27 mg, and zinc 0 , 34 mg

Other nutrients in cassava are as follows: 38.1g carbohydrates, 1.7g sugar, 1.8g food fiber, 1.4g protein, 60g water 27mcg folate 20.6mg vitamin C 16mg calcium 21mg magnesium 27mg phosphorus 271 potassium 14mg sodium.

10 Health Benefits Obtained

The health benefits of cassava are rich in calories, carbohydrates and iron as a good source of energy.

Incorporating cassava into a controlled healthy diet menu has turned out to have many positive effects on health. 

1. Cassava loses Your weight

Cassava which is rich in dietary fiber is the right choice if you can’t wait to lose weight.

Cassava can make you feel full for a longer period of time. Thus reducing the need to constantly snack on food so as to suppress weight gain.

2. Cassava cures migraines

The presence of vitamin B2 and riboflavin in tubers is useful for curing headaches and migraines. Eating cassava can help reduce constant migraine attacks.

The trick is to take 60 grams of roots or cassava leaves and soak them in water for 2 hours then make the juice. This will reduce the severity of your migraine.

3. Cassava improves digestive health

As mentioned above, cassava is rich in dietary fiber which is very beneficial for the body and its function.

Insoluble fiber helps in improving your digestive system by absorbing all the poisons stored in your intestine, and also by reducing inflammation in your digestive tract.

4. Cassava treats diarrhea

The antioxidant properties of the roots can help overcome flaccid stools.

If you suffer from diarrhea, boil the roots in water for one hour and consume them.

This will help to get rid of bacteria that cause stomach problems and reduce the symptoms of diarrhea as well.

5. Cassava improves vision

One of the other main benefits of cassava is that it is beneficial to your eye health.

Consumption of controlled cassava can help your body with the vitamins and minerals needed.

Filled with vitamin A content, cassava can help improve your vision, it can also prevent blindness or poor vision.

6. Cassava heals wounds

The whole cassava plant, namely the stems, leaves and roots are all useful in treating wounds.

Roots can help prevent wounds from becoming infected and speed healing.

7. Cassava cures fever

Cassava can be used to treat mild fever.

When boiled together with cassava leaves, it increases the ability to relieve fever. You can make potions from both of them and drink them to reduce your body temperature.

8. Cassava cleanses worms

Eating cassava can help relieve nematode lice in your stomach and intestines. Cassava roots help remove worms in your intestines and provide assistance.

9. Cassava increases appetite

Carbohydrates and fiber in cassava play an important role in regaining your appetite.

If you feel weak and have no appetite, maybe for emotional or physical reasons, try putting a few pieces of cassava into your menu.

How to Do Butterfly Locs by Diane Shawe

Checkout my 1 minute tutorial on how to do butterfly locs that won’t unravel.

1 minute tutorial on how to install butterfly locs

Butterfly Locs are like the perfect mix of goddess locs and passion twists. The messy, bohemian style is ethereal, low maintenance, and very natural looking. For those of us that want a style that changes over time, doesn’t require much fuss to make it work, and celebrates curls and coils while still protecting our own hair, this style may be for you.

What Type of Hair to Use and How Much

Depending on how long your natural hair is and how long you want your locs to be, you may need two types of hair. If you  want locs that aren’t longer than your own hair, you’ll need need roughly 6-8 packs of some type of water wave or marley hair in 22-28 inches. This hair is curly and bouncy and that’s what will give you the characteristic loops that give Butterfly Locs their name.

Maintenance & refreshing Butterfly Locs

Keeping your style well maintained and your scalp healthy is a very important part to having a protective style. Make sure your hair is washed, deep-conditioned and well moisturised before installing the locs, and you’ll also need to do periodic maintenance with this style.

Keep leavein spray conditioner on hand to keep your scalp  moisturised. Try a non oily brand so you don’t get any flaky buildup in the hair between the fake hair.

Use mousse to keep flyaways at bay and to give your Butterfly Locs a “finished” look.

You may need to re-wrap a few locs here and there, and use some edge control on new growth.

Can you wash Butterfly Locs?

The short answer is yes, you can wash Butterfly Locs, but  most people focus on keeping their scalp clean. There are some really good dry shampoos out in the market place now that are not white powder based.

Try not to keep them in longer than 6 weeks
