How does body handle access acid
In its infinite wisdom, the body has chosen to save the kidney and liver from degradation by excess acid. Of course, there is a cost. It's called obesity, lowered immunity, lack of energy and the whole host of acid related diseases we are subject to including cancer, diabetes, osteo-arthritis and more - much more.
Certain Foods including colas increase acidic waste. According to Dr. Frasetto, when we are faced with shortage of options due to an acid-besieged inner terrain, we dump toxic waste in fatty deposits as far away from the heart and other organs as possible; on the buttocks, the chest, the thighs and the belly. That fat is what is saving our lives.
Blood ph (7.35) can be affected at any time of the day by a myriad of events; food, drink, stress, pollution, exercise, or beneficially, by meditation, by drinking alkaline water, by deep breathing, even by being happy!
Understanding pH & Health
Over acidification of the body (cells, tissues & fluids) is the greatest contributor to illness.
Acidification leads to the buildup of toxins, as well as the growth of dangerous microforms like yeasts (Candida), fungi, and harmful bacteria.
This toxicity leads to stress, and eventual sickness. Modern daily diets and lifestyles create this morbid, acidic environment in your body.
There is a direct correlation between acidification and a whole host of ailments in the body.
The pH level (acid - alkaline measurement) of your internal fluids affects every cell in your body.
Your body regulates its pH just like it regulates its temperature. In doing so, it will even create stress on other tissues or body systems if it must.
Since your blood MUST maintain a very narrow pH range of 7.365 To 7.40, your body will do all sorts of things in order to deal with excess acidity.
It will flush excess acids into fat cells (which is why you can't seem to lose those extra pounds)....
Or, perhaps, it will leach calcium (an alkaline mineral) from your bones in order to neutralize acids.
Your body will also stress tissues by flushing acids into them (as is the case with gout) because it can't dump these acids into the bloodstream (which must remain alkaline or you'd die).
Simply stated, chronic overacidity will interrupt all cellular activities and functions - it interferes with life itself.
When the pH of your body becomes (too acidic), you may experience low energy, fatigue, excess weight, poor digestion, aches and pains, and even more serious disorders.
The body becomes imbalanced and overly acidic primarily as a result of three things
1. INGESTING ACIDS
Eating too many acidifying foods create an acid ash in the body. These acids can overload your body's ability to neutralize them.
2. CREATION OF ACIDS
An acidic environment is a breeding ground for toxic microforms. Since these organisms are living, they steal your nutrients, and create resulting acidic toxins.
3. IMPROPER ELIMINATION OF ACIDS
The body uses many systems in order to buffer acids including breath, mineral reserves, and fat. When the body's buffering systems become compromised, excess acids build up.
In order to realize proper pH balance, you must deal with every contributing factor to acidity.
The great news is that when you get your pH in balance, you have really set the stage for optimal health.
Vibrant health and energy are the direct result of a body that's pH balanced.
