Alkalinity & Acidity - How they affect our health.
Due to modern life style (stress), eating habits fast foods etc, the kind of food we eat and the things we drink (coffee, alcohol, and so on) most people are highly over acid today.
When we alkalise the body we are bringing back the balance of the body. One way of doing that is by using alkaline forming foods and alkalising beverages. When the balance is out of 'whack' some consistent measures have to be taken, apple cider vineger or lemon water are two of the answers.
The internal environment of our bodies is maintained at a natural homeostasis just above pH 7.0. This means our internal environment is alkaline. In order to maintain this alkaline state, we need oxygen, water and acid-buffering minerals available, as we are eliminating waste products.
Having a Neutral PH close to 7 Should be our Goal for Both Urine and Saliva.
When such an alkaline environment is maintained in the body, our metabolism, enzymes, immune system and repair processes function at their best. Stress and inflammation produce acid waste products for which we need to have mineral buffering reserves to combat these acids. That's why a diet that is predominantly alkaline-forming is essential to the maintenance of good health.
It Is Essential to Understand The Importance of an Alkaline Diet . . .
Most vegetables and fruits contain
higher proportions of alkaline-forming elements. They promote an alkaline
environment in your body. Foods that you think of as "acidic" foods such
as tomatoes, citrus fruit and rhubarb actually form alkaline residues
because the body is able to fully break down those kinds of acids into
bicarbonate and water.
Nearly all disease starts and thrives in an acid evironement
If you currently suffer from ill health, then its probable that your body is over acidic. At Inner Essence Natural Therapies we have specific pH tests that we perform in our Naturopathic consultations. This enables us to determine your current acid levels and provide you with the necessary information to correct your body’s pH and therefore improve your health and allow you to live the life you deserve.
