In order to function properly, a healthy living thing needs to be slightly alkaline.

Being in an alkaline-state keeps the cells, its chemical reactions within them and so that healthy bacteria can function efficiently. An acidic body cannot function properly. Your pH balance is an important part of your body health. It’s a matter of life or death, not meant to be overlooked.
Most people who suffer from unbalanced pH are acidic. This condition forces the body to borrow minerals—including calcium, sodium, potassium and magnesium—from vital organs and bones to buffer (neutralize) the acid and safely remove it from the body. Because of this strain, the body can suffer severe and prolonged damage due to high acidity—a condition that may go undetected for years.

Mild acidosis can cause such problems as below.

  • Cardiovascular damage, including the constriction of blood vessels and the reduction of oxygen.
  • Weight gain, obesity and diabetes as well as slow metabolism.
  • Bladder and kidney conditions, including kidney stones.
  • Immune deficiency.
  • Acceleration of free radical damage, possibly contributing to cancerous mutations.
  • Hormone concerns.
  • Premature aging.
  • Osteoporosis; weak, brittle bones, hip fractures and bone spurs.
  • Joint pain, aching muscles and lactic acid buildup.
  • Low energy and chronic fatigue.
  • Slow digestion and elimination.
  • Yeast/fungal overgrowth
  • Mood swings
  • Chronic inflammation

So, when your pH levels are acidic, you will become vulnerable, and more susceptible to various disease as you can see along with other issues.

is your body alkaline or acidic?

 A lower pH level comes from a result of toxic chemicals, drugs and medications. When your pH levels fall below 6.4, the enzymes are shut off, vitamins, minerals and food supplements can’t work to perform their benefits and digestion becomes difficult. This acid lowers your ability to make energy in the cells, to fix damaged ones, detoxify heavy metals, which leads to illness and fatigue.

Diseases aren’t able to survive in an alkaline environment.

The viruses, mold, bacteria, yeast, fungus, candida and cancer cells flourish in acidic, low pH, low oxygen environment.

This can result from an acidic diet, toxic overload, emotional stress or immune response that disposes the cells of some important oxygen and nutrients.

In order to function properly, our bodies use its alkaline mineral reserves like calcium from the bones, and sodium from the stomach. This can be found to aggravate osteoporosis and various other diseases. When there isn’t enough minerals, acid accumulates and symptoms such as arthritis, MS, pain, fibromyalgia and lupus come into play. Cancer and a alkaline-rich environment cannot mix together. This is why cancerous cells are found to not affect the heart, as there is blood always flowing to it from the lungs. The blood from our lungs into our heart has the highest pH scale in the entire body. Blood fills our lungs with oxygen and high blood pH, and removes acidic toxins.

When there’s no oxygen present, glucose will ferment itself into lactic acid. This ends up leading to lowered pH levels in body cells. Patients who have terminal cancer always have urine and saliva ranging from 4.0 to 5.5. When the patient’s cancer metastasize, the pH levels will drop lower than they were before. In 1964, Keiichi Morishita said that one person out of 214, got cancer while in current times, 1 in 2 males and 1 in 3 females. This is in part, due to low pH food chart how to make your body alkaline

How to Check Your pH Balance
You can easily check what your pH level is at home. You will need some pH testing strips. Throughout your day, you can check the levels, but highly recommended you do that in the morning, as the body is more acidic. Your urine is supposed to be at between 6.5 and 7.5, as well as your saliva pH results. After 2 hours of eating a meal, check your saliva pH. All you have to do is fill your mouth with spit and swallow it. Do this a 2nd time, in order to give a cleaner spit and place some saliva on the pH testing strip.

Try adding in healthier habits into your lifestyle, and cutting out stress because it will alter your pH level. Be sure to consume plenty amounts of water (our Kangen water is the best!) , healthy food (we serve the best Alkaline food in our juices and smoothies!)  and practice deep-breathing to help in lowering the acidic environment within your body.
