Signs that your Body is too Acidic
Acidic body means good environment for bacteria. That can cause illness. Acidic body also causes mineral deficiency and your body starts to use minerals that are stored in the bones and vital organs and use them to neutralize the acids.
The mineral levels becomes very low, then this condition causes acidosis.It is important to know that all diseases are developed from one reason – very big amount of waste acid occurring in the tissues!
Body is too Acidic
Pasteurized, homogenized and canned products such as milk, dairy products, meat, refined oil, baked goods, refined sugar, coffee, soft drinks, drugs, etc., as well as stress can provide creation of acids in the body.
The balance of the pH of the human body has a tremendous importance for health, but just a few people know about it and take care of this balance. pH(potential of hydrogen) values show does our body is alkaline environment (oxygen-rich) or acid (lacking oxygen).
These values range from 1 to 14, where the value 7 is neutral. As the pH is greater than 7, the body is more alkaline. Conversely, as the pH is less than 7, the body is more acidic.
The most common cause of disruption in the pH balance in the body is improper diet, containing too large quantities of meat, milk and dairy products, sugars, refined products full of additives and preservatives, white flour, coffee, alcohol and the like.
External harmful effects, allergies, emotional stress, colds and viruses, and drugs also affect the increase of acidity in our bodies. This is evidenced by various medical conditions, such as various inflammations, dry and irritated skin, chronic headaches, acne, chronic nausea and nausea, insomnia, depression, anxiety, irritability, allergies, feeling of starvation and excessive weight.
This situation contributes with many serious diseases, such as reduced immunity, heart problems, liver disease, arthritis and cancer. Food that creates acidity in our body depletes bone mineral (releasing calcium and magnesium to restore alkalinity) and depletes muscle proteins (which are beginning to decompose to produce ammonia which is highly alkaline).
What does the long acidity of the body leads to weaker bones (osteoporosis) and decreased muscular mass.Eating more alkaline foods (green plants, vegetables, seeds and pulses, juices, vegetable soup) instead of acidic foods (meat and other animal products, processed carbohydrates, refined sugar, alcohol), the overflow body with chlorophyll, enzymes, vitamins , minerals and oxygen, is healthy for you.
Healthy food creates healthy cells and healthy thoughts. In order to maintain optimum pH value of our body, we should consume at least 60% alkaline and 40% acidic maximum food.
If you suffer from something, we should strive our diets consist of a minimum of 80% alkaline and 20% or acidic foods. It’s very important to eat more alkaline food to maintain the real acidity in your body.
Acidic Ph level can cause a lot of health problems. Some of them are this:
- Immune deficiency
- Lumbago, stiff neck
- Heart problems;
- Respiratory problems
- Cardiovascular damage along with blood vessel
- Osteoporosis, weakening of bones
- Sleepiness, headaches
- Muscle aches, joint pain
- Diarrhea, nausea
- Weight gain
- Premature aging
These are some tips how to alkalize your body:
- First you must check your pH levels;
- Eliminate acidic food;
- Eat more collard green and lettuce, more green salads;
- Drink lot of water;
- Avoid processed food;
- Drink green juices every day;
- Try to replace dairy milk with coconut or almond milk;
