Signs Your Body Is Too Acidic And 9 Ways To Quickly Alkalize It

A variety of physical problems and diseases are caused by acidity. The vast majority of the populace in industrialized nations suffers from problems caused by acidification, because both diet and modern lifestyle promote acidification of the body’s internal environment.

Acidic bodies are unhealthy bodies. When the body is acidic, it creates an unwanted environment where illness, bacteria, and yeast thrive. When the body is overly acidic, the body takes minerals from vital organs and bones to neutralize the acid and remove it from the body.


17Signs Your Body is Too Acidic and 9 Ways to Quickly Alkalize It

Because of this, the body’s mineral reserves such as calcium, sodium, potassium and magnesium can run dangerously low and cause damage that can go undetected for years, until it reaches unhealthy levels, causing acidosis.

Most of us are already consuming enough acid forming foods, such as dairy, grains, meats and sugar. Since the body is constantly generating acidic waste products from the metabolism, those waste products need to be neutralized or excreted in some way. In order to neutralize the constant acid generation, we need to supply the body with more alkaline foods.

Consider The Health Problems Caused By Mild Acidosis (Poor pH Balance):

Inflamed sensitive gums, cavities

Immune deficiency

Sciatica, lumbago, stiff neck

Respiratory problems, shortness of breath, coughing

Yeast fungal overgrowth

Low energy and chronic fatigue

Cardiovascular damage, including the constriction of blood vessels and reduction in oxygen

Heart problems, arrhythmias, increased heart rate

Weight gain, obesity and diabetes

ladder and kidney infections

Accelerated free radical damage

Premature aging

Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea

Osteoporosis, weak brittle bones, hip fractures, bone spurs

Headaches, confusion, sleepiness

Joint pain, aching muscles and lactic acid buildup

Allergies, acne

Doesn’t The Body Adjust pH On Its Own?

Yes it can, but it does so at a price. The normal pH for all tissues and fluids in the body, except the stomach is alkaline. With the exception of blood, all of the body systems have a wide pH range, in part so they can shift to maintain the blood pH, which must be maintained at the very narrow margin of 7.35 to 7.45.

For example, if the system becomes too acidic, the blood will take alkaline forming elements from the digestive enzyme system of the small intestine. This now creates a less than optimal environment for proper digestion. So while the body can adjust pH on its own, it does so at a price to other systems in the body, which can lead to additional health problems.

Start By Knowing Your pH

pH testing is important because it allows an individual to get a numeric representation of the current level of acidification in their body. A healthy average pH reading will range anywhere from 6.75 to 7.25. The optimal pH numeric reading is 7.36. To learn more about ph testing check references at end of article.
