The Importance of Proper pH Balance
All Diseases Thrive in an ACIDIC Environment. ACIDOSIS is the basic foundation of all disease. We need to understand the simple process of alkalizing our body and the important role a properly alkalized body plays in restoring and maintaining our overall health.
Our glands and organs function properly in exact proportion to the amount of alkaline and acid levels in our system. Most degenerative disease attributed to aging, such as cancer, osteoporosis and heart disease, and other diseases such as allergy, kidney stones and gallstones have all been scientifically linked to mineral deficiencies that result in your body fluids becoming more acidic. Scientists report that over 150 or more degenerative diseases are caused by high acid levels!! Parasites, viruses, bad bacteria, and disease cannot live in an alkaline body. By far the most common imbalance seen in our society is over acidity.
pH (potential of hydrogen) is a measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a solution. It is measured on a scale of 0 to 14—the lower the pH the more acidic the solution, the higher the pH the more alkaline (or base) the solution. When a solution is neither acid nor alkaline it has a pH of 7 which is neutral.
Water is the most abundant compound in the human body, comprising 70% of the body. The body has an acid-alkaline (or acid-base) ratio called the pH which is a balance between positively charges ions (acid-forming) and negatively charged ions (alkaline-forming.) The body continually strives to balance pH. When this balance is compromised many problems can occur.
It is important to understand that we are not talking about stomach acid or the pH of the stomach. We are talking about the pH of the body's fluids and tissues which is an entirely different matter. The Key to Open the Door to Controlling One’s Health.
The key to the door that opens up to full control of one's health is called pH testing. There are two body fluids that can be fairly conveniently tested to give an accurate indication of the pH of your intestinal environment. One is saliva and the other is urine.
Test Your Body's Acidity or Alkalinity with pH Strips.
It is recommended that you test your pH levels to determine if your body's pH needs immediate attention. By using pH test strips, you can determine your pH factor quickly and easily in the privacy of your own home. If your urinary pH fluctuates between 6.0 to 6.5 in the morning and between 6.5 and 7.0 in the evening, your body is functioning within a healthy range. If your saliva stays between 6.5 and 7.5 all day, your body is functioning within a healthy range. The best time to test your pH is about one hour before a meal and two hours after a meal. Test your pH two days a week.
Note: This test is for educational purposes only. You should always consult with your physician prior to starting any health-related program.
It takes 32 glasses of ALKALINE WATER to neutralize the acid from one 12 oz. COLA!!
All cells, organs and fluids in the body have their own preferred pH values in order to operate at peak performance. These ranges are usually found in the slightly alkaline level. When the pH is pushed higher or lower than the level preferred, the ability of the fluid or cell to do its job is "stressed." It cannot utilize the nutrients it needs, eliminate the wastes collected, etc., until the proper pH is restored.
The Impact of Acidosis on Your Organs.
The heart is one of the most alkaline-dependent organs in the body. It is partly innervated by the vagus nerve which functions best in an alkaline environment. Correct heartbeat is altered by acid wastes. These wastes rob the blood of proper oxygenation and degeneration of the heart follows. An alkaline system creates an ideal heart function.
