Do you understand the importance of alkaline and acid in the body?
One of the most important things to know is that illness is caused by acid. Acid and alkaline balance is important to your health. I knew little about my body’s pH balance before my journey into health.
THIS IS THE FACT: Illness is caused by Acidification
Alkaline-acid balance is one of the big keys to health. Once you master this in your diet, you will thrive. You will be surprised by all the diseases and ailments that are caused by acidity in the diet…and then in the body. Acidity causes disturbance in your enzymes, demineralization and seriously harmful acid activity.
If you are too acidic you may suffer from the following:
- No energy
- Nervousness and agitation
- Low stress threshold
- Tooth and gum disease
- Cracking at the corners of your lips
- Acidic diarrhea
- Mineral and calcium depletion of bones
- Inflamed intestines
- Burning in the bladder
- Runny nose and chills
- Dry skin
- Thin nails
- Dull, dry hair
- Leg cramping
- Migrant joint pains
UNDERSTAND pH BALANCE:
The pH scale goes from 0 to 14
The numbers below 7 are acidic (low on oxygen)
The numbers above 7 are alkaline
THIS IS IMPORTANT…
Blood, lymph and cerebral spinal fluid in the human body are designed to be slightly alkaline at a pH of 7.4.
At a pH slightly above 7.4 cancer cells become dormant
At pH 8.5 cancer cells will die while healthy cells will live.
THIS IS WHAT YOU MUST DO:
60-80% of the diet should be alkaline
20-40% should be acidic for an optimum result.
ACIDIC DIETS EAT UP YOUR MINERALS WHILE ALKALIZING DIETS REPLENISH YOUR MINERALS
So, what is acidic? Fried foods, animal products… Alkaline is the good green stuff. When you eat acidic food, your body works like crazy to bring it back to an alkaline state. That is how you get sick. It robs your mineral stores to overcompensate and this is where the trouble comes in.
The Standard American Diet (SAD) is acidic: burgers, cheese, coffee – all the stuff that gets eaten every day is eating up all the good things in your body. You need your minerals. Your body does not replenish its minerals. Once you use them, they are gone. If you want more you need to eat them. Minerals help your body to build essentials to its health; proteins, enzymes, hormones, etc. Foods that are high in minerals are alkaline.
You can exercise to improve your pH balance! Exercise helps the body to balance its pH.
