Excess Acid Means Sickness And Disease
Most people think that having acid in their system simply means that they have got an upset stomach or at worst acid reflux. Too much acid in the system can be the cause of over 200 diseases. By simply reducing acid levels in the body many health problems improve dramatically and in some cases totally clear up. You’ll be amazed at how simple it is to completely change your health around.
Are You Acidic?
To determine whether you are acidic use a saliva pH test strip (pH test kits can be purchased from this website). You may also like to take a look at the list of symptoms below to see if you may be acidic.
Test yourself first thing in the morning. You get a more accurate reading if you test yourself as soon as you wake up. No eating, drinking or cleaning your teeth.
- Place litmus paper a little way in your mouth on top of your tongue.
- Close your mouth and totally wet the end of the pH strip with your saliva.
- After 2 or 3 seconds place it on the test card to find a matching colour.
- If you are 7.2 or lower you need to become more alkaline for better health.
- A 7.4 saliva pH is the ideal reading
Test your saliva with litmus paper and note the changes in your pH. Keep yourself as close to 7.4 as you can for continued good health. Eko Crystals can assist with lowering acidity levels, consult a health practitioner if you are concerned about using Eko Crystals.
There Are Over 200 Diseases Attributed To Acidosis
Beginning Symptoms of Acidosis
Acne, agitation, anxiety, diarrhoea, dilated pupils, extraverted behavior, fatigue in early morning, headaches, hyperactivity, hyper sexuality, insomnia, nervousness, rapid heartbeat, restless legs, shortness of breath, strong appetite, high blood pressure, warm dry hands and feet, muscular pain, cold hands and feet, dizziness, low energy, joint pains that travel, food allergies, chemical sensitivity to odours, panic attacks, pre-menstrual and menstrual cramping, premenstrual anxiety and depression, lack of sex drive, bloating, heartburn, constipation, hot urine, strong smelling urine, irregular heartbeat, white coated tongue, hard to get up in the morning, excess head mucus (stuffiness) and metallic taste in mouth.
Intermediate Symptoms of Acidosis
(Herpes I & II), depression, loss of memory, loss of consciousness, migraine, headaches, insomnia, (disturbances in smell, taste, vision, & hearing), asthma, hay fever, ear aches, hives, swelling, viral infections (colds & flu), bacterial infections (staph, strep), Fungal infections (candidiasis, athletes foot), impotence, urethritis (inflammation in Urethra – the tubes leading to kidneys), Cystitis (inflammation of the kidney), urinary track infections, gastritis, colitis, excessive hair loss, psoriasis, endometriosis, diarrhea, stuttering, numbness & tingling and sinusitis.
Advanced Stages of Acidosis
Crohn’s disease, schizophrenia, learning disabilities, Hodgkin’s disease, systemic lupus erythematosus, multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis, sarcoidosis, rheumatoid and osteo arthritis, myasthenia gravis, scleroderma, leukaemia, tuberculosis and cancer.
The Importance Of An Alkaline Body
In order to function at optimum capacity, the internal body environment must remain as close to neutral as possible. It likes to measure in on the pH scale at 7.39. When the body takes in an excessive amount of acid, as it does so often as a result of making the wrong food choices, this excess must be brought back into balance.
Each of the elements inside the body, the vitamins, amino acids, fatty acids, minerals, sugars and trace elements, can be categorised as either an acid or an alkaline. One interesting fact about acid and alkaline elements is that when they are mixed together, they are able to cancel each other out. The scientific term for what is created when an alkaline and an acid element are combined is a neutral salt.
Much in the same way as the neutral color gray results when black and white are combined, and when the neutral temperature of warm results when hot water is combined with cold, a neutral salt cancels out the inherent respective properties of the combined acid and alkaline elements. With no acid or alkaline properties, neutral salts have no impact on the cellular serums or blood in which they are present.
When excess acid is present, the body must go out and find alkaline elements to begin the process of neutralising this excess acid. Alkalines are usually present in the blood, but because the blood cannot tolerate much variation in its pH level, this is never a good source from which to borrow. A better source for alkaline elements is the internal organs and tissues. These areas can tolerate a greater degree of pH level fluctuation.
Even though the internal organs and tissue can exist in the short-term without all of the necessary alkaline, it is of critical importance that the borrowed alkaline be replaced. Normally this is not a problem. A healthy diet is generally all it takes to replenish alkaline levels. But most people don’t consume a healthy diet. It is this repeated borrowing of alkaline without replacement that becomes a serious situation.
In fact, given the way many people eat today, it is not uncommon for alkaline to be borrowed and not replenished every single day, and worse, many times in a single day. Taking more alkaline than is being replenished will sooner or later create a deficit. Alkaline has a purpose. It is crucial to the properly functioning of the internal organs and tissue. It is not present in the body so that it can be used to help neutralise excessive acid.
A shortage of alkaline inside the body occurs much more frequently than it should. The end result of this alkaline mineral loss can be any number of different illnesses and diseases and overall feeling of poor health.
Rebalancing The Body’s pH Levels
The negative health conditions associated with acidification are numerous. And while it is possible to treat each illness or symptom individually, such measures will never be anything more than temporary.
To effectively deal with the illnesses and symptoms that are brought about by acidification and to return the body to an overall state of good health, it’s very important to address the root of the problem. You’ve got to find out why the body is not ridding itself of excess acid. Once you understand why this isn’t happening, you can begin a treatment plan that will reduce and preferably eliminate acidification.
First and foremost, you must take steps to stop acidification right where it starts. You’ve got to stop filling your body with high-acid foods and drinks.
Focus on providing your body with more alkaline-rich foods, the fruits and vegetables you pass on more often than you consume. You will be amazed at how this one simple step can drastically impact acidification levels. Exercising will enhance the acid oxidation process, another tremendous benefit. To address the acids that have been embedded within the tissue, consider plant-based medicines. These help increase sweat levels and urine flow, two of the body’s acid elimination channels.
If taken correctly, alkaline mineral supplements help the body two ways. They assist with the elimination of acids that are consumed throughout the day. Plus, they help dislodge the acids that have become embedded deep within the tissue. If given the choice the body will keep those deeply lodged acids in the tissues rather than risk allowing them to enter the bloodstream where they can upset the pH balance and cause serious health problems. Alkaline substances that are introduced into the body works to neutralize these acids so they can be safely transported to the skin surface and eliminated. When acids come into contact with the alkaline, they become neutral salts and as such, can pass safely through the bloodstream without impacting its pH level.
Putting the body through an acid cleansing process isn’t really that difficult, and the payoff is well worth the effort. As those deeply embedded acids are dislodged and taken to the surface to be eliminated, the body immediately starts repairing the conditions that have been brought on by acidification. As long as acid levels remain under control, there’s little chance those conditions will ever return.”
