(N.Morgan) Recently it has come to light that our bodies may be too acidic and this can lead to major health issues. It can create the perfect environment for illness, bacteria, and yeast to thrive. When the body is overly acidic, the body will extract minerals from vital organs and bones to neutralize the acid and remove it from the body. Because of this, the body’s mineral reserves such as calcium, sodium, potassium and magnesium can be depleted and cause damage that can go undetected for years, until it becomes a the medical crisis and can lead to complications such as acidosis .

Many people are consuming enough acid forming foods in their diets, such as dairy, grains, meats and sugar.

Since the body is constantly generating acidic waste products from the metabolism, those waste products need to be neutralized or excreted in some way. In order to neutralize the constant acid generation, we need to supply the body with more alkaline foods.

Health problems caused by mild acidosis (poor pH balance):

Inflamed sensitive gums, cavities
•Immune deficiency
•Sciatica, lumbago, stiff neck
•Respiratory problems, shortness of breath, coughing
•Yeast fungal overgrowth
•Low energy and chronic fatigue
•Cardiovascular damage, including the constriction of blood vessels and reduction in oxygen
•Heart problems, arrhythmias, increased heart rate
•Weight gain, obesity and diabetes
•Bladder and kidney infections
•Accelerated free radical damage
•Premature aging
•Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea
•Osteoporosis, weak brittle bones, hip fractures, bone spurs
•Headaches, confusion, sleepiness
•Joint pain, aching muscles and lactic acid buildup
•Allergies, acne

Doesn’t the body adjust pH on its own?

Answer according to The Hearty SoulYes it can, but it does so at a price. The normal pH for all tissues and fluids in the body, except the stomach is alkaline. With the exception of blood, all of the body systems have a wide pH range, in part so they can shift to maintain the blood pH, which must be maintained at the very narrow margin of 7.35 to 7.45.  For example, if the system becomes too acidic, the blood will take alkaline forming elements from the digestive enzyme system of the small intestine. This now creates a less than optimal environment for proper digestion. So while the body can adjust pH on its own, it does so at a price to other systems in the body, which can lead to additional health problems.

    Soooo all that acidic fruit is really alkaline????

    •' Fauren Lecke says:

      It has alkaline effects in the body from my understanding. Certain fruits and vegetables can be acidic and alkaline depending on ripeness too 🙂

    •' David Copping says:

      In really plain terms both acidic and alkaline materials are first digested in a highly acidic environment – the stomach. Then any excess alkalinity is neutralised in the the intestines. Overall acidic / alkaline balances are kept in check through up to 22 different chemical pathways. So unless your diet consisted of entirely acidic or alkaline foodstuffs your pretty much ok. We have been aware of this for over 70 years. But still the quasi scientists like to push their imaginary agendas on a generally scientific illiterate society.

    Bicarb and honey.Cancer only lives in an acidic environment. Lower your Ph and live longer 🙂

  16.' David Copping says:

    You are kidding. This is a simplistic representation of a highly complex series of reaction pathways – 22 in all. There is no quick fix. However a regular reasonably balance diet will result in the body just doing its thing and you’ll be just fine. There are no secrets to this.
    Once again, untested, non experimental quasi science comes up to the plate with nothing new to say.

    Your kidneys….lungs…in constantly seeking homeostasis, buffer your blood pH to 7.35-7.45 – to think you can change this with diet and/or receive health benefits if you could is IDIOTIC
