As the body temperature of 98.6 degrees is a perfect environment for the body, so is an Alkaline/Acid Balance level in your body.
Blood has to be 7.36 on the pH scale, if your blood does not remain at the precise pH level you will die. You can measure the blood for the Alkaline/Acid environment but an easier way is to measure the pH of the saliva or urine. Measuring the saliva or the urine is not as accurate as the blood, saliva is the least accurate. The body will struggle for as long as it can to keep your blood at the perfect 7.36 before it will begin to become diseased and break down.
When the body is Acidic, the cells are saturated wit protons that cause the red blood cells to clump together, when the body is Alkaline the cells are saturated with electrons that create an oxygen rich environment. The electrons cause the red blood cells to have a negative charge and cause the blood cells to bounce off of each other so they do not stick together and flow through the body to create the oxygen we need.
In a high Alkaline environment it is very difficult for microorganisms to grow, they stay in check, in balance. When body becomes Acid its like putting out garbage and waiting for the rats to show up. The body becomes diseased and begins to break down, causing cancer and other serious illnesses.
So Alkalinity has got to be a major focus, how do you do that? Eat vegetables and fruits, raw when possible and Organic if possible, because pesticides and herbicides also contribute to an Acidic environment in your body. Consume less meat, dairy products and anything that is canned, boxed or prepared by man. Eat what was prepared for you in the raw by mother nature.
If you are over weight and can’t lose the weight, you can probably contribute it to an Acidic Body. When your body is Acidic you do not get as much oxygen and every thing slows down including your metabolism, even if you are working out. In addition if you are working out hard in an anerobic way you are building even more Acid, the body says we have to retain more water and get these acids away from the critical organs in the body so the body stores the acid in the fat until the body has more energy again and it can push through the blood stream again and excrete these wastes, so fat protects you. Skinny people that are toxic (Acidic) are in worse shape then people who are over weight, because they have nothing to protect them.
In summary, an Acidic body is corroding from the inside out!
