Our body relies on an alkaline environment in order to work efficiently and remain healthy.
When in an alkaline state, the immune system, healthy bacteria, chemical reactions, and cells within the gut work properly.
If your body becomes too acidic, many body systems will fail to perform normally.
Prescription and over the counter drugs, alongside toxic chemicals can lower our pH level. That is what causes all these side effects and explains their inefficiency. When the body’s pH level is below 6.4, it messes up assimilation of minerals, vitamins, food supplements as well as digestion.
It makes the body more vulnerable to harmful bacteria, as acid reduces the ability to detox the body from heavy metals, ability to fix broken cells, reduces the production of energy, making the body vulnerable to illnesses and lethargy.
Scientific research has found that, disease isn’t able to survive in an alkaline environment. However, it was discovered that candida, mold, fungus, yeast, bacteria and cancer cells rely heavily on an acidic and low pH environment.
An acidic environment is primarily caused by an acid-forming diet, toxic overload, emotional stress, nutritional and oxygen deficiencies. Then, our bodies work to make up for the loss by using alkaline stored up in our body, leading to chronic illnesses.
When there is no oxygen, glucose goes through a process of fermentation producing lactic acid. As a result, the pH levels in cells drops.
The determining factor between health and disease is pH. It is not uncommon for the average American to test between 4 pH and 5 pH.”
How To Check Your pH Balance
Saliva pH should be in the same pH level as urine. Best testing time for saliva is two hours after eating.
