how to balance alkaline acidic in body

If you want to dramatically improve your energy, get the body you’ve always wanted, say goodbye to inflammation and bring the aging process to a halt, then choosing alkalizing foods can get you there.

Fact 1: The typical American diet is acidogenic, consisting of foods that have an acidifying effect on the body.

Fact 2: Chronic over-acidity removes oxygen from the blood and can result in lowered immunity and premature aging.

Fact 3: The top 16 alkalizing foods are all green

It happens in some countries where government put efforts to encourage citizens to consume healthy foods with recommended diet plans.

It’s not easy to tell what condition your bones are in at any given time. The only real outward signals that your bones may be weakening are receding gums, weak or broken teeth, and muscle loss—and even those signs don’t necessarily indicate how much bone you’ve lost, if any.

How to Check pH of Your Body?

What is your pH?

The first step in establishing an alkaline diet is to assess your current pH. A good approximation of tissue pH is easily obtained by testing the pH of your saliva or first-morning urine.

These tests are available here or through other online resources. Complete instructions on how to use them come with the test, but these are the simple steps to follow to test your pH at home.
Steps to test your pH

1. Obtain pH test paper. This paper measures the acid-alkaline state of any liquid. Readings at the low end of the scale indicate an acidic state, and those on the higher end a more alkaline state.

2. Test in the morning — two options. First thing in the morning, if possible after 6 hours of sleep without getting up to urinate, get a test strip or tear off a three-inch piece of paper from the roll.

3. Testing with urine: Either urinate directly on the paper or collect urine in a cup and dip the paper into the urine in the cup. Please note that first morning urine is the most valuable pH reading according to our research. If you can’t go 6 hours without getting up to urinate, then just test the first urine in the morning when you get up for the day.
Testing with saliva (this is a second, less-ideal measurement): Rinse your mouth with water, spit it out into the sink, and spit again. Now, collect some saliva in a spoon and moisten the paper in the saliva. Do not eat, drink or brush your teeth before the test.

4. Read the result color. As the test paper is moistened, it will take on a color. The color relates to the acid or alkaline state of your urine or saliva and ranges from yellow to dark blue. Match the color of your test strip with the chart provided on the back of your test kit.

A number below 7 means that your urine is on the acid side. The lower the number, the more acidic the condition.
The ideal urine reading should be between 6.5- 7.5, and saliva readings should be between 7.0- 7.5.

What is pH?

pH is the abbreviation for potential hydrogen.  The pH of any solution is the measure of its hydrogen-ion concentration.  The higher the pH reading, the more alkaline and oxygen rich the fluid is.  The lower the pH reading, the more acidic and oxygen deprived the fluid is.  The pH range from 0 to 14, with 7.0 being neutral.  Anything above 7.0 is alkaline, anything below 7.0 is considered acidic. (blood pH, you get different counts for urine)  Normal pH is between 7.35 to 7.45, anything below or above this range means symptoms and diseases.  If blood pH moves too much below 6.8 or above 7.8, cells stop functioning and the patient dies.  Enough to get you to the doctor immediately, and make a habit of checking your pH level as regular as you go for all these other checks.  If you got a health problem you are most likely acidic, get to your doctor.

pH Readings below 6.5

At first, most people will have low pH readings due to the acid-forming tendency of the standard American diet. In this case, increase your intake of vegetables, fruits, root crops, nuts, seeds and spices, striving to get 80% of your nutrition from these alkalizing foods. You can find more details on the acid or alkaline forming nature of the various foods in The Acid-Alkaline Food Guide.

pH Readings above 7.5

A highly alkaline reading is likely due to catabolism, the process of breakdown of body tissue which triggers excess nitrogen in the urine. If you are consistently getting readings at 8.0, contact your health professional about how to stimulate the repair state to reverse this catabolic cycle.

Be patient and persistent. Remember, your pH indicates your reserve of alkaline minerals. It can take time to build up these reserves. Do not be discouraged with a slow movement towards the ideal alkaline measurement. It may have taken decades to get where you are; a few months to sustained repair and renewal are well worth the effort and attention.

That’s why a pH test is so important for bone health. Testing your body pH will give you a sense of whether your body is tending toward metabolic acidity, or is in the balanced, slightly alkaline state that’s necessary for healthy bones. This test is relatively simple and can be done in your own home.

What amazed me the most about medical aids in South Africa is that they really go out of their way to encourage people to stay healthy.  They offer yearly (some 3 times a year) medical checks for cholesterol, high blood pressure, sugar.  You can also join certain Gym’s that are subsidized by the medical aid you belong to for a quarter of the price.  The most important check they don’t offer is to check your blood for acid.

If your pH is normal you will never get a disease.  Acidosis is the forerunner of most, if not all chronic degenerative diseases including cancer, diabetes, arthritis’s, and heart disease.  According to research, total healing of chronic illness only takes place when and if the blood is restored to a normal slightly alkaline pH.

What is the cause of a high or a low pH level?

It is what we put in our bodies.

Acidosis is caused by the consumption of excess protein and other acid forming foods.  In my book Health dangers you will find an alkaline diet chart to help you eat the right food to avoid acidosis.  Other symptoms is negative thoughts, defensive, argumentative, unpleasant and pessimist who find nothing good about anything.

Acidosis is also the cause of corrodes (eating into cell wall membrane) arteries, veins and heart tissues, premature ageing, weight gain, a condition known as Insulin sensitivity or Syndrome X, cholesterol, blood pressure, disrupts critical lipid and fatty acid metabolism, inhibits metabolism of stored energy reserves, inhibits cellular regeneration & DNA-RNA synthesis, inhibits oxygen to the tissue, inhibits life giving electrolyte activity, all forms of cancer, diabetes, liver and kidney diseases, Parkinson diseases and so the list goes on.  And acid pH is the seed of degenerative diseases.

Symptoms of acidosis

Symptoms of prolonged acidosis can easily be mistaken for individual character traits.  However, definite attitudes and mannerism develop as a result of the super-charged internal activity of the body as it works toward riding itself of the damaging excess acid.   A person with acidosis has first an exaggerated sense of well-being, is high on achieving, believes himself as perfect, is overly ambitious and restless, than change to pessimist, can’t sleep restfully, wake up tired in the morning, find fault with everything and everybody, is tired and experience general aches and pains, become irritable, ill tempered, difficult to please, and show signs of ageing.

Although everyone who suffering from acidosis does not experience all of these symptoms, it is helpful to the practitioner to be able to correlate some “personal traits” with clinical findings and to recognize indications that the patients body is over taxed and headed toward chronic degenerative disease.

Maybe if we all make our medical aids or insurance aware of this very fital test, a lot of disease can be avoid and many people can save their own lives by knowing when their pH level is in a dangerous zone and do something about it.  We will also understand when we experience these symptoms that it is not because we are a horrible person, it is our body’s telling us there is something wrong.
