Every organ inside is affected by acidity. Lungs, heart, bones, brain, belly, kidneys, skin, intestines…
If we are too acidic, we feel not so good.
When we reach acidosis, this is the best place for diseases. Alkaline bodies have less inflammation, the main cause of every illness.
After a life of the Basic American diet SAD the body will stay all the time acidic. If this is it, minerals are removed from organs and bones and the acid damages us.
This is why we see more osteoporosis, bones are leached from minerals like Mg, salt, calcium, potassium and when this happens, we have no reserves and become even more acidic. We get sick.
Grains, dairy, meat, soy are all acidic. Alcohol, coffee, processed food, sugar, additives, GMO oils are too. This way acidic waste items are made and alkaline food here would come in handy.
Here are the 20 signs of acidic body:
- Excess phlegm and mucus
- Chest pain
- Sinus issues
- Neurological problems – dementia, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer
- Less mental focus
- Heart damage from plaque and risk of cardiac arrest or stroke
- Kidney and bladder infections
- Bad immunity
- Skin issues- eczema, acne, rash, dermatitis
- Belly problems – bloating, acid reflux, indigestion, gasses
- Yeasts infections
- Obesity and weight gain
- Sciatica and stiff neck too
- Cavity and gum issues
- Pain in joints and muscle pain
Why can’t our body adjust pH by itself?
It does actually. But not all the way. All fluids and tissues are alkaline except the belly. If we are acidic, tissues will get alkaline items from other areas like GI enzymes of bones or small intestines. We change pH but at the cost of another organ or tissue.
How to exactly alkalize?
Change the diet and life habits too.
Decrease acidity this way:
Lots of clean drinking water, spring water is best. This flushes toxins out.
Remove acidic foods or at least reduce them to just once or twice per week. Avoid sodas, dairy, popcorn, pastry, alcohol, coffee, sweeteners, white vinegar, wheat, eggs, meat, fish, soy and seafood.
More greens- shakes, juices, salads…
Emotions affect pH too. Fear, anger, sadness all make us acidic. Practice yoga and destress.
More alkaline foods, seeds, nuts, legumes, beans
Lemon water for balanced acids
