What's the big deal about pH?

The pH of your tissues and body fluids affects the state of your health or inner cleanliness or filth. The closer the pH is to 7.35 - 7.45, the higher you’re level of health and well being and your ability to resist states of disease and the onset of symptomologies.
The pH scale is like a thermometer showing increases and decreases in the acid and alkaline content of these fluids. Deviations above or below a 7.35 -7.45 pH range in the blood can signal potentially serious and dangerous symptoms or states of disease. When the body can no longer effectively neutralize and eliminate the acids it relocates them within the body’s extra-cellular fluids and connective tissue cells directly compromising cellular integrity.
pH (potential of hydrogen) is a measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a solution. It is measured on a scale of 0 to 14—the lower the pH the more acidic the solution, the higher the pH the more alkaline (or base) the solution. The body continually strives to balance pH. When this balance is compromised many problems can occur.

Most people who suffer from unbalanced pH are acidic. This condition forces the body to borrow minerals—including calcium, sodium, potassium and magnesium—from vital organs and bones to buffer (neutralize) the acid and safely remove it from the body. Because of this strain, the body can suffer severe and prolonged damage due to high acidity—a condition that may go undetected for years.
Mild acidosis can cause such problems as:
                Cardiovascular damage, including the constriction of blood vessels and the          reduction of oxygen.
                Weight gain, obesity and diabetes.
                Bladder and kidney conditions, including kidney stones.
                Immune deficiency.
                Acceleration of free radical damage, possibly contributing to cancerous mutations.
                Premature aging.
                Osteoporosis; weak, brittle bones, hip fractures and bone spurs.
                Joint pain, aching muscles and lactic acid buildup.
                Low energy and chronic fatigue.

 What Causes Me to be Acidic?
The reason acidosis is more common in our society is mostly due to the typical American diet, which is far too high in acid-producing processed foods like white flour and sugar and drink acid-producing beverages like coffee and and far too low in alkaline-producing foods like fresh vegetables. 
We use too many drugs, which are acid-forming.
We use artificial chemical sweetners like NutraSweet, Equal, or aspartame, which are extremely acid-forming. 

When your body pH is balanced the cells in your body will oxygenate and cause you to heal at a phenomenal rate. 

Cancer cells put in a test tube with acidic fluids will multiply. 

Put those same cancer cells in a test tube with alkaline fluids and they die. 


Acidic conditions in the body will cause you to have low energy and to "not feel good" in general. 

Acidic conditions causes a poor immune system, making you less resistant to sickness (colds, flu etc.). 

Acid hinders the bodies ability to absorb oxygen, vitamins and minerals.

Lack of oxygen intake will slow down the metabolism, an acidic body cannot lose weight and keep it off. 

Some of the more common symptoms associated with acid conditions are Chronic Fatigue, allergies, ADD, ADHD, ear problems, and upper respiratory problems.

If the body pH balance gets very far out of balance the body will pull alkalizing minerals from your bones. 

This will help lower the acid in your body but leaves the bones weak leading to osteoporosis and gout.
