Do you have a good systemic balance?
Your careless lifestyle with a western diet often causes an increased production of acid in our body. You eat less of healthy foods and eat more of junk. Proteins (meats, fish, poultry and eggs), cereals, sugars and the like naturally produce acid after their digestion. Stress, low or extreme level of physical activity, consumption of alcohol, coffee, tea and tobacco make matters worse. You have managed to turn your body into an acidic one and you don’t know about the damage done.
Alkaline foods include fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts like almonds, natural yogurt, cheese, coconut and more. We eat less of these when compared to the others. Alkaline foods should match the protein intake to maintain our blood’s pH level. The level of pH i.e., potential of Hydrogen indicates the measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a solution. The healthy pH level of your blood is around 7.35, slightly alkaline. Also positive emotions enhance your alkaline level while the negative emotions increase the acidic environment. Hence the need to keep a cool head.
When we eat everything mouth-watering and yummy we forget about our body and its internal harmony. A little below or above this definitely brings out ill health and sicknesses. If your pH level is below 6.8 or above 7.8 then you are dead! The blood brings less oxygen to the cells and they die leading to your collapse.
When your body is acidic, your body is in a situation wherein it has to neutralize this acidic environment. Then, it has to take minerals like calcium, sodium, potassium and magnesium from the vital organs and bones to remove acid from the body. This action stresses the vital organs and disrupts the internal harmony. Even mild acidosis can cause constriction of blood vessels, obesity, chronic fatigue, low energy levels, premature aging, digestive problems, immune deficiency, kidney problems and many other diseases. This is a basic idea of how important your pH level is to you! If you’ve gotten so far, then we can proceed.
It is not difficult to hold the reins of your daily diet, is it? The best way to turn your body from acidic to alkaline is to cut short the acidic foods and drinks. At the same time, you may have to include foods which are alkaline in nature. You can test your pH level by testing the samples of your saliva.
