Carbonated water (also known as club soda, soda water, sparkling water, seltzer water, or fizzy water) is water into which carbon dioxide gas under pressure has been dissolved. This process, known as carbonation. This process creates carbonic acid.

It is suspected (not proven conclusively) that carbolic acid helps dissolve calcium from the bones, causes kidney stones, and strips the enamel from our teeth. Drinking a ton of sparkling water could cause some unpleasant stomach symptoms for some people. Not all, but, some soda water contain added sodium and sugar. And if it has any additives (like flavors) they may contain unsavory chemicals and added sugar.

On a positive note however, while artificially carbonated water is slightly more acidic than still water, it’s not as acidic as sugary sodas.


You body works hard to exhale carbon dioxide from the system. If so, why add additional carbon dioxide to your body in the form of Soda?

Something to think before you take the next burp.

By training, I am a American Board Certified Pediatrician. But in my younger years I grew up with natural alternatives. As a mom I have tried to incorporate both for my kids and it has worked wonders. And finally, as I am studying natural & alternative medicines, I realize the beauty and wisdom of living closer to earth. Hence in my practice I integrate both...for acute ailments I follow American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation but for simple and/or chronic conditions I prefer natural alternatives. In western training we were raised to think that "health is the absence of symptoms and problems". But eastern sensibilities has educated me that "Health is state that allows one to use the full capabilities of their body, mind and intellect. Therefore, healthy living is a balanced state of well being: physically, mentally, socially and spiritually." This implies that healing is not a "one-pill-fits-all", but a personalized experience.
