If you have taken basic biology, you will know that any cell requires certain conditions to function normally. Temperature and pH must be precise in order to support simple life.
Likewise, our body as a whole requires basic conditions in order to have optimal performance.
When functioning at its optimal level, the human body’s fluids and tissues exist in a slightly alkaline state – in other words, not acidic. But since the food we eat becomes the raw material to rebuild tissues, pH balance can be affected by a diet that consists largely of “acidifying” foods.
Watch this free video to learn more about alkaline diet and how it can affect your overall health.
These acidifying foods essentially bathe our body tissues and blood in an acidic solution. Of course it won’t kill you right away – acid does naturally exist in the body – but if left untreated, this acidic environment can lead to conditions such as heart disease, high cholesterol and obesity.
How do you know whether your body is overly acidic? Any of the following symptoms can be indications of this problem:
* Cold hands and feet
* Difficulty in waking up
* Excess sinus congestion (stuffiness)
* Excessive gas
* Exhausted easily and low energy
* Food allergies
* Headaches and migraines
* Heartburn and acid reflux
* Irregular heartbeat
* Joint pains that travel
* Lack of sex drive
* Light headedness and dizziness
* Muscular pain
* Pre-menstrual and menstrual cramping
* Pre-menstrual anxiety and depression
* Rapid heartbeat
* Shallow panting breath
* Strong-smelling urine
* White coated tongue
If you experience more than two of the symptoms listed above, your body pH could be unbalanced. I’m speechless after counting how many of them I have. Consider being proactive and changing your diet before acid accumulates into a serious disease.
Please visit The Alkaline Diet for more information.
There are also ways to confirm your internal pH conditions, for example using an at-home urine test.
