These days, many people have acidic bodies due to their diet, the environmental factors, and stress, which can lead to fatigue, digestive issues, and even cancer. Therefore, if you want to have a healthy body which can fight against and prevent diseases, make sure that your body is slightly alkaline.
Why is Alkaline State so Important?
The value of the pH runs from 0 to 14, in which 0 stands for the most acidic and 14 for the most alkaline. Therefore, 7 is considered to be pH neutral. However, the body needs to be only a little bit alkaline, so 7.4 is the perfect value. Surprisingly, this value doesn’t apply to all of the body’s organs and systems since they require different pH levels, for instance:
- Skin needs pH 5 level
- Digestive tract needs pH level that is between 1.5 and 7
- Saliva needs pH level that ranges between 6.5 and 7
Alkaline state of the body is of crucial importance because the majority of cancer types cannot develop and withstand when the body’s pH level is 7.36.
How to Know if Your Body is Too Acidic?
You can find out if your body is too acidic in two ways. The first is to do a saliva test using a regular pH paper. The second is to check if you have the following symptoms:
- Muscle cramps or pain, even after a short distance walking
- Run out of breath without too much effort
- Chronic fatigue
- Frequent difficulties in breathing
What Happens to Your Body if it’s Too Acidic?
The body tends to store excessively acidic substances in the lungs, kidneys, and liver so that it can keep the pH level between 7.35 and 7.45. By doing so, the body tries to regulate itself in the case of pH level declining.
However, these stored acidic substances may attack the healthy body cells and make them atypical, damaged and toxic, and eventually, these cells will metastasize, if not treated on time.
Diet rich in processed foods, sugars, alcohol, and caffeine, is the main reason for persistent acidic levels. In order to fight against this condition try to make changes in your daily diet and use the following alkaline water:
Alkaline Water Recipe:
- 1 sliced organic lemon
- 1 tablespoon of Himalayan salt
- 2 liters of water
First, take a glass jar, fill it with water and add the slices of lemon and the Himalayan salt. Then, secure the jar and let it sit at room temperature for the next 12 to 24 hours.
Drink three glasses of alkaline water in the morning on an empty stomach and continue drinking throughout the day. The results will be improved energy levels, clearer and healthier skin, and more alert brain.
Also, note that for getting the best results you should avoid consumption of food that is processed and rich in sugars and additives. Therefore, you’ll make sure that you have a completely healthy body.
