Everybody agrees that the pH balance in our bodies is extremely important. What is more, there are people who clearly state that the pH balance is a matter of life or death.
pH means power of hydrogen, and it is the measurement of the hydrogen ion concentration in the body. The pH scale ranges from 1 to 14, and 7 is considered as neutral. If the pH is less than 7 is acidic, and if we are talking about pH greater than 7, it is basic or alkaline. The ideal pH is slightly alkaline, ranging from 7.30 to 7.45.
You can easily test your pH level regularly, just put a piece of litmus paper in your saliva or urine in the morning, before you eat or drink anything.
Taking care of your health does not only mean taking care of physical activity and diet, but it also includes pH balance in your healing process.
Knowing more about pH balance can help you rebuild both mind and body from a number of degenerative conditions that could not be cured in any other way. Take care of your acidic system and bring your body back to vitality, because this is the key to balancing every system in your body.
1. Digestive System
Excess acid in the digestive tract and lack of alkaline minerals in the intestines cause digestive disorders, such as indigestion, nausea, bloating, gastric reflux and many others.
Insufficient intake of alkaline minerals contained in enzyme rich foods exhaust the pancreas. It loses the ability to decode foods and inform the body what should it do. This leads to a degenerative spiral of entropy, and the organs become confused and inflamed.
2. Circulatory System
Acidity is the main cause of heart diseases. Many studies have proven that fats are extremely essential for the cardiovascular health. Good fats heal the inflammation associated with arteriosclerosis. The good fats do not cause the thickening of the arteries with plague, but the acidic environment that creates the inflammation is responsible for this health condition.
As a response to acidity the body lines the vessels with fatty plague. This is due to preventing life-threatening leaks which cause imminent death and strain the heart muscle, because the blood flows through narrower vessels. Heart attacks occur when the heart is completely exhausted.
3. Immune System
Acidic environment provides the perfect conditions for pathogens. What is more, high hydrogen levels of rich body fluids stop the bacteria from being active. Antoine Béchamp, a great scientist, once said ‘The germ is nothing, the terrain is everything.’ The ratio of the cellular pH is crucial when it comes to whether bad bacteria and pathogens incubate or stay inactive.
4. Respiratory System
When acidity starts to affect the organs and bodily tissues, the transport of oxygen in the body is strangled. This means that the cells are unable to breathe properly. For a proper function, every single cell in the body needs to clear acidic carbon dioxide and breath new oxygen. In cases of high acidity ratio, waste materia, such as mucus, infections and bacteria build up in the lungs, causing cold, bronchitis, asthma, etc.
