In order to have a healthy body it needs to be alkaline, and by no means acidic. This is highly needed so that everything functions properly within the body system.
Yet, the human body at certain periods of life can become acidic which is a clear signal that something is wrong in the organism.
The body needs to keep its alkalinity, and because of that we always have to check our pH balance. The pH balance can be quite easily disturbed which will eventually lead to many diseases, like the following ones:
- Hypertension (High Blood Pressure)
- Continuous inflammation
- Bad digestion and waste elimination
- Fungal/yeast overgrowth
- Kidney and bladder issues like kidney stones
- Premature aging
- Osteoporosis, brittle bones, bone spurs and fractures
- Sore muscles, joints and lactic-acid buildup
- Mood swings
- Reduced energy
- Constant fatigue
- Weight issues like obesity
- Weak metabolism
The most common reason for lowering pH levels can be high consumption of medications, drugs, toxins, and harmful chemicals. If you have pH levels below 6.4, then the body system will close down and no vitamins, minerals or enzymes can enter in it.
With these pH levels the body becomes acidic, the body cells do not produce any energy, and no detoxification is happening. This offers an ideal survival environment for developing and multiplying bacteria, mold, yeast, viruses, candida, fungus and cancer cells. However, if the body is alkaline, then there wouldn’t be any diseases and illness.
How the body gets acidic?
It becomes acidic due to improper diet, influence of toxins, stress or immunity concerns.
Yet, the body has its own defense system, so when it is attacked it will take the remaining calcium from the bones, sodium from the stomach and force itself to function properly. But, there is always a drawback as when this happens, usually osteoporosis occurs.
The acidic organism lacks minerals, and because of that health issues like arthritis, pain, MS, fibromyalgia and lupus can appear. This condition can also incite growth of cancer cells.
Cancer cells optimally live in an acidic body and convert the glucose ferments into lactic acid. The lowest pH levels are in terminal cancer patients in the range of 4.0 to 5.5.
Cancerous cells can not affect the heart since there is a continuous blood flow from the lungs into the heart and there is the highest pH scale within the whole body. The blood flow supplies the lungs with oxygen and due to high blood pH the acidic toxins are removed.
Cancer statistics have gone wild, namely in 1964, one in 214 people was diagnosed with cancer and today this number is approximately1 in 2 males and 1 in 3 females, and low pH levels have substantially contributed to this condition.
Check Your pH Balance
In order to do this you will need pH test strips. The optimal time for checking pH levels is in the morning because at that time the body has more acids than from the rest of the day. However, you need to be cautious when you get the results as the urine results should range between 6.5 and 7.5, and this also applies for the saliva pH results. Best results for saliva pH levels would be 2 hours after consumed meal.
Nevertheless, it is always important to lead a healthy life, try to avoid stressful situations, hydrate often and exercise breathing techniques to minimize the acidity inside your body.
