We all want to be healthy and to have a long life, but if we want to stay healthy and to make our body fight against and prevent many different diseases, we should keep it in alkaline condition.
However, there are many factors that can influence that and can make it more acidic, or even highly acidic, like environmental factors, processed foods, all types of chemicals, stress and other factors.
Well, this is the very serious type of problem, because it can lead to more health complications, including fatigue, digestive issues and weight gain. Moreover, if not balanced on time, this environment in our bodies may influence healthy cells and they will become toxic, and over time, even cancerous.
The value on the pH scale goes from 0 (the most acidic) to 14 (the most alkaline). So, we can say that 7 is neutral, and the human body is built to thrive in a slightly alkaline environment of 7.4.
But, this is not the same for all organs. Some body organs function on different pH levels. For example, the pH of the digestive tract can vary a lot, from 1.5-7.0, and it is influenced by many factors, but mostly from the food we eat.
Also, according to the findings of a 2006 study published in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science, its pH should be 4-4.5 in order it to be more strong in eliminating and preventing infections.
Namely, the science has discovered it long ago, and we are all aware that the food we consume can significantly determine our overall pH levels, and in that way, our health condition.
Since 1931, when Dr. Otto Warburg found the truth that has made him win the Nobel Prize in Psychology or Medicine, researchers constantly struggle to determine the ph value of different foods and their contribution to the environment of the body.
Dr. Otto Warburg’s discovery revealed that 90-95% of all types of cancer occur as a result of an acidic environment. Moreover, he found that cancer cells simply cannot survive in an alkaline environment, when the pH is around 7.36.
As he stated a century ago, there is a relation not only between acidosis (over-acidity) and the formation of cancer but with almost every chronic disease nowadays, such as heart disease, diabetes, and osteoporosis.
Therefore, it is of vital importance to recognize when your body is too acidic. The first you can do is to do a saliva test using a regular pH paper. Nevertheless, you can also determine it by knowing the following symptoms:
– Frequent shortness of breath
– Muscle pain or cramps after walking short distances
– Constant fatigue
So, when your pH level drops, your body’s mechanisms are trying to regulate themselves in a natural way – to create homeostasis. They do this by holding and storing some excessively acidic substances in your organs, including your liver, lungs and kidneys.
In that way, it can keep up an optimal pH of between 7.35-7.45. However, these acidic substances will eventually start to strike the healthy cells, causing them to be toxic, damaged and sick. Over time, if this issue is not solved, these cells can grow without control and spread to other body parts or organs, that is, that is, they will metastasize.
As we previously mentioned, one of the major causes of the chronic acidosis is the modern diet, which is rich in sugar, caffeine, highly- processed food and alcohol. These foods are also grown with the use of numerous additives, pesticides and growth hormones, which are additionally acidic.
Therefore, it is absolutely logical to make numerous changes in the diet in order to preserve the health of your body. Moreover, you can also benefit a lot from a detox made by consuming alkaline water.
Proper alkaline water can lead to homeostasis because the human body is 70% water!
Alkaline water- recipe
