How acidic are you?
 
 

Acidity in the body is related to disease

  The human body creates acid, all day, every day, as a byproduct of metabolism. In addition, acid is introduced into the system through eating and digestion. Many secreted and digested acids are swept away by the blood stream, filtered out by the kidneys, and released from the body in the urine. Other acids leave the body through perspiration. Your body can only process a certain amount of acids, however, so it is possible to overload the system and for the body to become acidic.
 

What you must know!

  • Acid reflux is a painful condition that occurs when acidic stomach liquid backs up (refluxes) into the esophagus, causing irritation, inflammation and damage to the lining of the esophagus
  • High cholesterol occurs when the body produces excessive amounts of cholesterol to neutralise large amounts of acids in the blood stream before they damage living cells.
  • Heart disease is the result of a build-up of cholesterol in the coronary arteries that reduces the blood flow to the heart muscle. As stated above, cholesterol forms to product the arterial wall from acidity in the blood.
  • Fat is produced by the body to trap and neutralise acidic waste in the body. As Dr. Robert O. Young, author of The pH Miracle for Weight Loss, puts it, "The body retains fat as a protection against the overproduction of acids produced by the typical American diet....Your fat is actually saving your life."
  • Inflammatory related diseases such as allergies, arthritis, fibromyalgia, psoriasis, and even stroke are related to low-grade metabolic acidosis.
  • Drinking alkaline water can help restore the body's pH balance, reduce acidity and promote detoxification.
