You must have heard of the alkaline diet. This means foods that are alkaline or less acidic for the body after metabolizing. Also, acidosis is when acidic foods are eaten daily and this means more toxins inside.
If the body is acidic you have more risks of weight gain, fatigue, and such issues.
This means if you live in polluted environment, normal cells can get cancer.
Alkalinity is vital for health
pH scales run from 0 to 14 so 14 is alkalinity and 0 is acidity, but 7 is neutral.
We need alkalinity of 7.4 for the best health.
Different systems and organs have various pH values. When the skin is pH 5, then the saliva is a bit more like 6.5-7.0.
The digestive tract has pH of 1.5 to 7.0 this depends on many factors and mostly on food.
The Nobel prize for physiology in medicine 1931 was to Otto Warburg for discovering that 90-95% of cancers are from acidity. He said cancer cannot live in alkaline body.
Due to this, experts have tested foods and drinks for this effect.
Acidosis was linked to osteoporosis, cancer, heart disease, and such.
How to see if you have acidic body?
you can use pH paper for saliva test but also notice if you have these signs:
- Not getting air
- Short breaths
- Muscle cramps and fatigue after short distance
If the pH drops, then we get in homeostasis and keep optimal pH from the acidic items in lungs, kidneys, liver. This keeps pH of 7.35 to 7.45.
Such acid items attack normal cells. So healthy cells get toxins, and get sick.
If uncured, this can make metastasis and grow faster to other organs.
How to fight acidosis and be healthy:
The diet is major factor here since it has processed food, sugars, caffeine, alcohol…these make acidosis. Also additives, hormones and pesticides make problems too.
You need diet changes and also alkaline water too.
This water can make homeostasis and health.
Water recipe :
- A glass jar (never use plastic since this can make chemicals)
- 1 spoon Himalayan salt
- 2 l pure water
- 1 lemon
Put the water in the jar, then add the sliced washed lemon.
Keep the peel and add the salt too.
Keep this at room heat and check after 24 h.
Then have 3 glasses before breakfast daily.
Also have this all day long too. You will feel better and have more energy. Also the brain will be more focused and skin cleansed.
As we said, you need to change the diet and avoid junk food, sugars and alcohol. Also have this water all the time for optimal health.
