Yes, alkaline ionized water is safe to drink. But, you should start slowly rather than making an abrupt change to drinking water with a high pH level.
On your ionizer, set the controls to the lowest level and drink one to three glasses per day.
Assuming the water agrees with you, increase the amount you drink and the level of ionization intensity.
High levels of alkalinity — up to 9.5-10.0 — are best for drinking water; the highest levels can be used for cooking.
In a few individuals, the detoxification effects from drinking alkaline ionized water can cause headaches and diarrhea for a short time. And for some older people, ionized water can tend, at first, to open the bowels.
