Being in an alkaline-state keeps the cells, its chemical reactions within them and so that healthy bacteria can function efficiently. An acidic body can not function properly. Your pH balance is an important part of your body health. It’s a matter of life or death, not meant to be overlooked.
So, when your pH levels are acidic, you will become vulnerable, and more susceptible to various diseases:
– Slow metabolism, obesity and inability to lose weight
– Chronic inflammation
– Kidney and bladder conditions such as kidney stones
– Weight gain and diabetes
– Premature aging
– Weak bones, osteoporosis, bone spurs and fractures
– Aching muscles, joint pain and lactic-acid buildup
– Mood swings
– Low energy
– Chronic fatigue
– Slow digestion and elimination
– Fungal/yeast overgrowth
Many toxic chemicals, drugs, and medications contribute to lower pH levels and when they fall below 6.4, the enzymes deactivate, and the food supplements, minerals, and vitamins cannot be properly assimilated. In this way the process of digestion cannot function properly. The acid reduces our body’s ability to produce energy in the cells, repair those which have been damaged, and detoxify the heavy metals. This leads to illness and fatigue.
- Diseases are not able to survive in alkaline environment. Only in acidic environment will yeast, mold, candid, viruses, bacteria, fungus, and cancer, low pH, and low oxygen environment can they thrive. This may be a result of an acid forming diet, overload of toxins, emotional stress, or even an immune reaction which disposes the cells of oxygen and some significant nutrients.
In order to function properly, the body is trying to use its alkaline mineral reserves like calcium from the bones and sodium from the stomach. This condition brings osteoporosis and other diseases. If there is not sufficient amount of minerals, the acid will accumulate and there will appear symptoms like lupus, fibromyalgia, MS, pain, and arthritis. Cancer and a healthy pH environment are not able to exist together.
For this reason the cancer cells cannot affect the heart, for there is a constant blood flow from the lungs into the heart, and there is the highest pH scale within the whole body. The lungs are filled with oxygen supplied by blood, and he high pH levels remove the acidic toxins from there. If there is no oxygen, then the glucose ferments itself into lactic acid, leading to lower pH levels in the cells.
The cancer patients have urine and saliva pH ranging between 4.0 and 5.5, and when it metastasizes, the levels drop lower. In 1964 there was only one person in 214 that got cancer, while today, there are 1 in 2 males and 1 in 3 females that have it. The main reason is the pH.
How to Check Your pH Balance
Fortunately, you can easily check your pH level at home. You just have to take some pH test strips.
You can check the pH levels throughout the day, but it is recommended to do so in the morning, because the body is more acids at this point of time. The morning urine results should be between 6.5 and 7.5 as well as the saliva pH results. Make sure you check your saliva pH, at least 2 hours after some meal. You just have to fill your mouth with saliva and then swallow it. Do this again, to provide a clean spit and then place some saliva on the pH strip.
Try adding in more healthier habits into your lifestyle, and cutting out stress because it will alter your pH level. Be sure to consume plenty amounts of water, healthy food and practice deep-breathing to help in lowering the acidic environment within your body.
