The foods that we consume can have acidic or alkaline effect on the body. The acidosis is caused by the toxins we are dealing every day, stress and the food we consume. If the body is too acidic, we are at higher risk of weight gain, fatigue and digestive problems. If the acidic environmental is present for a long time, the normal cells can become toxic and cancerous.
The pH levels are from 0 to 14. (7 is neutral, 0 is the most acidic and 14 is the most alkaline). Our bodies need a slightly alkaline environment and that is 7.4. The digestive tract has 1.5-7.0 pH which depends in many factors including the food we consume. It was found that the cancer cannot grow or survive in alkaline environment (7.36). The researchers tested pH levels of food and drinks and their impact on the metabolism. Over acidity or acidosis has been linked to cancer, heart disease, diabetes and osteoporosis.
Symptoms that show you that the body is too acidic are muscle cramps, pain water walking short distance, easily running out of breath, inability to get enough air and chronic fatigue. If the pH levels drop, the body tries to keep optimal pH balance by accumulating the acidic substances in the lungs, kidneys and liver which maintains pH of 7.35 to 7.45.
These substances can attack the normal cells which can become sick, toxic and damaged. One of the major culprits of chronic acidosis is the diet because it probably includes caffeine, alcohol, sugar and processed foods. The pesticides, additives and hormones in foods can be too acidic to the body. You should make big changes in the diet and consume alkaline water to fight acidosis. The alkaline water can help you prevent disease and create homeostasis.
-One lemon (organic);
-Two liters of water (purified);
-One tbs. of Himalayan salt;
-One glass jar (large);
Slice the lemons and add them into the water in the jar. Do not remove the peel of the lemon. Then, add the salt and cover the jar. Leave it to stay for 24 hours at room temperature. Consume three glasses of this drink before the breakfast, but you can drink it also during the day. You should also avoid sugar, alcohol and processed foods in order to fight acidosis and increase the health.
