Do your suffer from Acidosis?
According to Acidalkalinediet.net “Acidosis is an increased acidity in the blood and other body tissue. Acidosis is said to occur when arterial pH falls below 7.35. The pH level of our blood affects every cell in our body. Chronic acidosis corrodes body tissue, and if left unchecked, will interrupt all cellular activities and functions”.
If you are lethargic, feeling irritable or anxious, or suffer from frequent colds, low energy, digestion issues, muscle pain, mild headaches, joint pain or bad breath, you may want to consider a more alkaline diet, because these symptoms are signs of mild acidosis.
Eating sugar, processed foods and meat are highly acidic and take a toll on the body.
Greenopedia.com says that “If we are not eating enough alkaline-forming foods, then our body has to pull these minerals from our bones, teeth and organs. This can compromise our immune system, cause fatigue and make us vulnerable to viruses and disease“.
Wow, that’s pretty scary isn’t it?
Yes, diet affects the PH balance, but other things can affect it as well such as:
- Taking drugs
- Smoking Cigarettes
These things can create inflammation in your body. Stress releases cortisol, which is an acid forming hormone.
There are many ways to reduce stress through seeing a therapist, exercising, or even practicing meditation and yoga.
It’s important to consume some acidic foods.
The best way to have a healthy acid alkaline balance is to consume 50 – 80% alkaline foods.
