Just how alkaline do you need this water to be? What's the application or recipe? You would probably need to add lime (weak), quicklime (stronger), or lye (strongest), depending on the application. More details please...

I was told to drink alkaline water but , for health troubles

The person who told you to drink it, should tell you how to make it. Chlorinated water is alkaline, so is baking soda water, What kind of health problem does changing the ph of your drinking water remedy?

I have not heard the phrase before. I assume that just enjoying the recommended amount would lower the acidic content in ones body.

The only "alkaline waters" I would drink for health reasons would be 1 Tbs baking soda in a glass of water for indigestion, or limewater (1 Tbs quicklime in 1 quart of water) for mineral acid poisoning (battery acid, muriatic acid, etc). I think you should get a better health advisor.

I've dealt with an additive to drinking water - something whose name I can't quite remember, but something along the lines of "Ural" or "uralyzer" or some such. One of my sons needed it to "alkalise" his urine - he had kidney infections. Basically a powder in a foil sachet, white outside, with green printing (but that's in Australia). I'm sure a pharmacist would recognise what I'm talking about - try asking them.

Check out the following link: Alkaline Water Sounds like the typical "voodoo health science" hogwash that would appeal to the millions of hypochondriacs in this country. If I wanted to drink alkaline water, I'd just keep a few good size chunks of dolomitic limestone in my water pitcher. --Happy trails, CF

Just put an 1/8 of a tsp of baking soda in a big glass of water -- a Tbsp is overkill. Even to get rid of heartburn or acid stomach a tsp is plenty. Some European mineral waters seem high in bicarbonate (which is baking soda), and it seems to help some people. Some people respond to acid things, some to alkaline. For instance, one the the most common home remedies for yeast infections is cranberry juice or other such acidulating things as vinegar, etc. But I find that that only makes it worse for me, that in fact alkalinating things tune my system better. If 1/8 tsp is too much for you, just put a pinch in -- a general ph shift could be more gently beneficial than bombing your digestive system with a really strong solution.
