pH gut Balance
… As Nature Intended….
pH gut Balance-As strange as it may sound perfect balance in the body begins in the bloodstream. Furthermore, the repair of injuries, reduction of inflammation, building of strong bones, and increase of energy and vitality begin there as well. In order to function properly the blood and other body fluids must maintain a very narrow Acid/Alkaline balance.
This program is based on guidelines of Integrated Naturotherapy intending to correct body’s Acid-Alkaline imbalance (curb excess body acidity).This balance is major regulator throughout nature, just as pollution, acid rain, chemicals effect globally; in the same way too much acid food rots our insides.Virtually all degenerative diseases including heart disease, arthritis, osteoporosis, kidney/gallstones & tooth decay are associated with excess acidity in the body. Acids dissolves both teeth & bones.You can monitor the health progress towards a proper acid-alkaline balance. Remember diseases cannot exist in pH balanced environment.
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.
Optimally we want the fluids in our bodies to have a pH level, which is 7.35 to 7.45, while stomach alone is at a low pH around 2, to aid in digestion and create an inhospitable environment for bacteria and parasites.
Injuries repair faster and health challenges improve quicker when the pH is maintained in this zone. At this level of pH, the body is highly oxygenated, it detoxifies and heals itself, its cells are reenergized, and it has a strong immunity to diseases.
Unfortunately, the vast majority of us have an acidic pH level below 7.0
Originally, alkaline is the body’s natural and pure state. However, many factors in today’s society contribute to an over acidic environment. Our epidemic of acid accumulation is a direct consequence of our current lifestyle habits. Foods that have been metabolized by the body leave behind a chemical residue called “ash”. When combined with body fluids this ash can be either acid forming or alkali forming. Foods that leave acid ash lower the pH level of blood, causing an accumulation of acid. High acidity enters our bodies by eating processed foods, pre-packaged foods, sugary foods, white flour products, dairy products, including milk, cheese, ice cream, alcoholic beverages, drugs, processed table salt, foods grown and processed with pesticides, preservatives, antibiotics, or hormones. Meats, including beef, chicken and turkey, also promote acidity.
Because of the acid overload in our environment, most of our drinking water, RO water pH is also acidic.
Even stress creates excess acid. If you’re not getting enough sleep or alkaline exercise (over training your workouts lead to excess lactic acid accumulation leading to Lactic Acidosis) you probably have more acid than your body can handle. Your cells are absorbing acidic toxins much faster than you can get rid of them through your colon, lungs, skin and kidneys.
How to know if your food is acid forming or alkaline forming?
Check the PRAL (Potential Renal Acid Load) value of the food. Instead of simply categorizing a food as acidic or alkaline, PRAL measures the exact amount of acidity or alkalinity of a food based on the amount of minerals (protein, phosphorus) that’s left behind the body once it’s been metabolized.
Since protein and phosphorus breakdown into sulfuric acid and phosphoric acid, they are considered acidifying to the body. When the alkaline food is metabolized, it will leave behind alkaline trace minerals, such as calcium, magnesium and potassium.
What happens when our blood turns too acidic?
Blood acidosis can impact how every organ in your body functions.
Though the body has a natural mechanism to stay alkaline, long term acid buildup will exhaust the buffer alkaline ions from the body, leading to “chronic low grade metabolic acidosis”. Unless we take steps to neutralise these acids, they pose serious threat to our health. Prolong acidosis eventually forces our body to deplete calcium and other minerals (magnesium, potassium) from the soft tissues to make body alkaline, which leads to muscle, joint and calf pains, heart ailments and various metabolic disorders. Further more bacteria/viruses thrive in acidic environment (they live, eat and procreate in acidic environments) resulting in the creation of more toxins and increasing the risk of infections.
The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition stated: “Today, with our high sodium, high protein, high processed food diets, we are even more in need of the alkaline ash minerals. These minerals act as buffers to neutralize excess acid. If not present in sufficient quantities, the body “steals” these much mineral needed buffers from our bones and thus such deficiencies are thought to be a leading cause of osteoporosis.
Flush out Acids:
The first and foremost strategy in our cleanse program is to flush toxic residues out of the blood, lymph, tissues and organs. Almost all forms of internal toxicity cause a state of acidosis in the body which:
. Suppresses our immune response
. Interferes with our normal metabolism
. Inhibits digestion and assimilation
. Promotes fungal and bacterial infections and;
. Causes all sorts of other biological malfunctions and ill health
Different bodies need different solutions. The outside of the body gives clues as to what’s going on inside.
The key to gain health is achieving full rejuvenation of your glands.
In this program awaken to the knowledge of eating, thinking right and to focus on the real problem (the root cause of illness)! alongside attaining the benefits of balancing your body’s pH!
