Our body relies on an alkaline environment in order to work efficiently and remain healthy.
When in an alkaline state, the immune system, healthy bacteria, chemical reactions, and cells within the gut work properly.
If your body becomes too acidic, many body systems will fail to perform normally.
In recent scientific findings, when someone has an acidic gut, or acidosis, they are increasingly susceptible to the diseases below:
▪ Weakened immunity
▪ Premature aging
▪ Osteoporosis, weak or brittle bones, fractures and bone spurs.
▪ Joint pain, aching muscles and lactic acid buildup
▪ Low energy and chronic fatigue
▪ Mood swings
▪ Obesity, slow metabolism and inability to lose weight
▪ Chronic inflammation
▪ High blood pressure
▪ Weight gain, obesity and diabetes
▪ Bladder and kidney conditions, including kidney stones
▪ Slow digestion and elimination
▪ Yeast/fungal overgrowth
Prescription and over the counter drugs, alongside toxic chemicals can lower our pH level. That is what causes all these side effects and explains their inefficiency. When the body’s pH level is below 6.4, it messes up assimilation of minerals, vitamins, food supplements as well as digestion.
It makes the body more vulnerable to harmful bacteria, as acid reduces the ability to detox the body from heavy metals, ability to fix broken cells, reduces the production of energy, making the body vulnerable to illnesses and lethargy.
Scientific research has found that, disease isn’t able to survive in an alkaline environment. However, it was discovered that candida, mold, fungus, yeast, bacteria and cancer cells rely heavily on an acidic and low pH environment.
An acidic environment is primarily caused by an acid-forming diet, toxic overload, emotional stress, nutritional and oxygen deficiencies. Then, our bodies work to make up for the loss by using alkaline stored up in our body, leading to chronic illnesses.
Having little to no minerals in your diet can lead to build up of acid in cells. When this happens, your body is vulnerable to pain, fibromyalgia, lupus, arthritis, lupus and MS. Interestingly, cancer isn’t able to last in an alkaline environment, meaning the heart will never have cancer due to its high oxygen and pH levels.
When there is no oxygen, glucose goes through a process of fermentation producing lactic acid. As a result, the pH levels in cells drops.
An example, urine and saliva of patients with terminal cancer can over between 4.0 and 5.5. From Keiichi Morishita, Hidden Truth of Cancer, “In 1964, only 1 person in 214 contracted cancer. Today it is 1 in 3 females and 1 in 2 males.
The determining factor between health and disease is pH. It is not uncommon for the average American to test between 4 pH and 5 pH.”
How To Check Your pH Balance
You can test your levels at home, as it is simple and quick to do. Your pH levels can be tested during any part of the day. The best time though, is right when you wake up in the morning. Aim for a pH level between 6.5 and 7.5 for your urine.
Saliva pH should be in the same pH level as urine. Best testing time for saliva is two hours after eating.
Before spitting on the strip, fill your mouth up with spit and swallow a couple times to clean your spit. In your dietary routine, be sure to strive for a 70:30 ratio of alkaline-rich foods. Also, manage your stress levels by practicing meditation and deep breathing exercises, even yoga will help. Drink lots of water and eat your vegetables to eliminate acid.
