Your body’s pH can tell you a lot, it is a indication of your health. Your body’s pH should be 7. The pH of a persons healthy blood is 7.35, it is slightly alkaline. When your blood ph goes below 7 or above 7.45 your body won’t function properly. It functions best at a blood ph of 7.35.
Most people are too acidic, because Americans diet consists of to much processed food, high amounts of refined sugar, animal protein and way to much junk food.
A person that is acidic may tire quickly, be irritable a lot, not be able to sleep, have very low energy and they may have no enthusiasm to do the things they would normally do. They may be sensitive to cold, have dry flaky skin, brittle nails and a weakened immune system. When the immune system is weaken it makes your more prone to getting a cold, the flu, and recurring infections. Such as uti’s and upper respiratory infections like bronchitis. When you’re body stays acidic to long it can cause major health issues. Some women that have sever pms may be very acidic. When your immune system is weakened your body can’t fight off things like cancer, allergies, arthritis, lupus and even diabetes.
pH stands for Potential for freeing Hydrogen ions. So you probably want to know what that means. The difference between acidity and alkalinity will tell you what your ability to free hydrogen ions is.
PH is the measure of the electrical action in your body which regulates many of your body’s functions. The pH scale measures the amount of oxygen in your blood. When your blood is too acid it will not carry enough oxygen.
The ph scale goes from 0 to 14. The pH of 7 is considered to be neutral, the pH of 0 to 7 is acid. The pH of 7 to 14 is alkaline. Each number unit of change represents a tenfold change in acidity or alkalinity. That means the difference between a pH of 4 and 5 is a lot greater than the difference between 6 an 7.
It is very important that your body stays a healthy acidic to alkaline balance. You blood has to correct any changes in your ph immediately.
For your body to eliminate acid from your body it can do it by sweating, through your urine, store them up as fat and by your breath. When you are too acidic then there isn’t enough alkaline minerals in your body to buffer the acids. Then you will store the acids in fat. The only way to get rid of or release the acid is if you have more alkaline buffers that will neutralize the acid. You can neutralize the acids with calcium because it is a alkaline mineral.
Some people can’t lose weight because they eat food that is not healthy like sugar, junk food and animal protein. By eating unhealthy you lose a lot of alkaline minerals. The body cannot release excess fat that have stored acids. That is because the acids have to be neutralized, but your body doesn’t have enough alkaline to neutralize the acid.
Eating a raw diet of fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, herbs and spices is rich in alkaline minerals and helps to balance your ph levels.
Here is a list of some fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, herbs and spices;
Broccoli, leafy greens, squash, cabbage, bok choy, cucumber, kale, endive, asparagus, garlic, sea vegetables, collard greens, wild edibles, grasses, sprouted vegetables, beets, radishes, burdock, carrots, yams, turnips, parsnip, rutabaga, avocados, limes, lemons, dried figs, tomatoes, grapefruit, coconut, ripened bananas, watermelon, seeds, herbs, cayenne pepper, ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, curry, fennel, cumin, and raw nuts. These are just a few of the raw foods you can eat.
This helps your body to have homeostasis. Homeostasis is maintaining and the regulation of the body’s internal environment. All of the levels need to be controlled, this is so that the body can function properly. In order for the body to function properly the internal environments must be controlled. Enzymes work at optimal temperatures and ph levels are optimal around the body.
You can measure your bodies ph level and monitor the health of your body with ph test strips. Ph test strips measure the ph levels in saliva and/or urine.
