Acidosis is mostly due to our modern acidic diet and is a very dangerous condition that weakens all our body systems. It is very common today. Over-acidity creates a body environment conducive to disease as opposed to an acid-alkaline balanced environment that keeps large alkaline reserves (calcium, magnesium, potassium and sodium) and which allows normal body function to develop and maintain a vibrant health, as well as to resist diseases. Those alkaline minerals function as buffers. Buffers are chemical substances that help maintain and balance the body pH against the introduction of too much acidity or too much alkalinity. Healthy body strives to maintain alkaline reserves. In the case of over-acidity, excess acids must be neutralized by taking calcium and other alkaline minerals away from our bones, teeth and tissues, leaving therefore our alkaline reserves depleted, the microstructure of our bones damaged and our entire body weakened.
Maintaining a balanced alkaline body pH is definitely our first line of defense against aging and disease. As do many biochemists and physiologists, Dr William Howard Hay of New York (in his book (A New Health Era, 1933) and Dr Theodore A Baroody (in his book Alkalize or Die, 2006) maintain that by creating conditions for body autotoxication acidosis is nowadays the leading cause of degenerative chronic diseases. All the billions of cells that make up our human body are slightly alkaline and must maintain alkalinity in order to function and remain healthy and alive. But as each cell performs its task of respiration, which gives cell the necessary energy to function, it secretes acidic metabolic wastes. These wastes which are normal metabolic end products should not however be allowed to build up.
The pH range of a healthy blood is 7.35-7.45. In that condition the blood cells are far apart from each other and the blood as a whole is very fluid. As a result, your blood can move easily throughout your entire body, and get into all your small capillaries, bringing oxygen (energy) and all nutrients your body needs to sustain life, and transporting wastes to the organs where they are going to be either destroyed or eliminated. In addition the very mechanism for the transport of oxygen and CO2 through the body, as well as metabolic, physiological and immune system processes can take place in an optimal way only in that very limited zone of pH. So keeping our body slightly alkaline is what we need to assure an optimal metabolism, physiology and immune system and to maintain vibrant health and youthfulness.
In Case of Acidosis the accumulation of acidic wastes in and around the cell constitutes a toxic condition for the cell and for the whole body (over-acidity/acidosis). In that case the body strives to restore the acid-alkaline balance by using the body regulatory systems.
Normally when the pH turns to be unbalanced, the body uses at first its primary regulatory systems (breathing, circulation and eliminations) to repeatedly bring the blood pH back into the physiologic range. But as the acid excess starts building up the body will fight to restore the acid-alkaline balance also by using and depleting our mineral alkaline reserves: calcium specifically is leached first from blood and tissues, and after then from bones, teeth, cartilage (hypocalcaemia, osteoporosis). As an another mechanism of defense to protect our vital organs against damaging acids, our body will start producing fat cells and packing acid wastes in those cells (cellulite/obesity build up). So a return to a healthy acid-alkaline balanced body will help fight obesity and lose excess fat.
Moreover the more the body becomes acidic, the more the blood cell will agglomerate and the less the blood will be fluid. Your blood will no longer be able to get to all the little capillaries throughout your body. Poor blood circulation causes through the body a lack of oxygen (energy) and nutrients, and an insufficiency in the elimination of wastes. This situation impairs your overall metabolism and physiology, as well as your immune system and leads to most degenerative chronic diseases (Candida infections, obesity, osteoporosis, premature aging, acid reflux, arthritis, autoimmune diseases and so on).
It is recommended that you test your body pH to determine if it needs immediate attention. Get Urine-Saliva pH Test Strips of high quality and easy to read: pH range 4.5-9.0, precision 0.25 pH Unit. Urine or saliva test should be taken when you awake in the morning, before you put anything in your mouth.
Saliva pH mirrors your blood pH and tells us what your body retains. It is a good indicator of the health of extracellular fluids and their alkaline mineral reserves. The optimal saliva pH range is 7.0 to 7.5.
The pH of urine indicates how the body is working to maintain a proper pH for the blood. It is an indicator of the body efforts via the kidneys and the lungs to regulate the body pH. Urine can provide a fairly accurate picture of the body chemistry, because the kidneys filter out the buffered salts of pH regulation and because urine provides values based on what the body is eliminating. The urine is the method the body uses to remove the excess of acids or of alkaline substances. Considering urine pH values we can define four health condition zones:
|Urine pH Zones||Health Condition Zones||Comments|
|4.5-6.0||severe acidosis zone||You should have degenerative chronic diseases|
|6.0-6.5||moderate acidosis zone||You have risk of contracting degenerative chronic diseases|
|6.5-7.5||Optimal healthy zone||Your health should be at an optimal level|
|7.5-9.0||Unhealthy alkalosis zone||You should have degenerative chronic diseases|
Environmental pollutions such as Cell Phone Radiation are other causes of chronic or incurable diseases.
High blood pressure is one of the many chronic diseases caused mostly by acidosis. If not well treated, it may lead to heart attack or to stroke
