One’s body needs to have slightly alkaline pH levels in order to function at its finest. This includes many things, such as one’s cells and the chemical reactions happening inside them.
But also, your immune system and your gut’s beneficial bacteria work much better when your body is slightly alkalized.
On the other hand, if your body is constantly in an acidic environment, it will not only have problems properly functioning but this constant acidic state may lead to a vast number of diseases, with cancer being no exception.
Indeed, even science has proven time and time again that when one’s body is in a constant state of acidosis, it leads to many illnesses and health-related complications.
And Such Diseases Are…
- An inability to lose weight, slow metabolism and obesity
- Constant inflammation
- High blood pressure
- Problems with one’s kidneys and bladder (not excluding the formation of kidney stones)
- A weakened immune system
- Aging prematurely
- Brittle bones, bone fractures, bone spurs and osteoporosis
- Buildup of lactic acid, sore muscles, and pain in one’s joints
- Chronically feeling fatigued and low on energy
- Mood swings
- A slow digestion process
- Fungal and yeast overgrowth
A Bit More Information
Toxic chemicals, medications, and drugs can all contribute to your body’s acidity. This is why all drugs have side effects. They lower one’s pH levels, which is never any good news.
You see, when your body’s pH levels drop beneath 6.4, a ton of problems follow. For example, your digestive system fails to work properly, your enzymes are deactivated, and you have a hard time assimilating any minerals, vitamins, and supplements you consume.
The more acid your body holds, the less your cells can provide you with energy, and your system has a much harder time repairing damaged cells or detoxifying you from any heavy metals which have accumulated.
All this make your body far more susceptible to illness and fatigue.In other words, it is plain to see that your pH levels play a crucial part in practically everything.
Moreover, research has discovered that diseases find it impossible to thrive in an alkalized environment. Which means the opposite, as any bacteria, fungi, viruses and cancer cells thrive in a low oxygen, acidic environment.
An acidic pH can form from a number of factors, such as emotional stress, an acidic diet, and toxic overload. But like we said, the good news is that cancer cannot thrive in an alkaline body, which is why it is so very crucial for everyone to get properly alkalized.
For instance, why do you think there is no cancer in one’s heart? It is because this organ has the highest oxygen and pH levels in your entire body. And, alternatively, when your body is low on oxygen, glucose starts a fermentation process towards lactic acid.
Which, of course, causes your cells’ pH levels to drop even further. Terminal cancer patients gave a sample of their urine and saliva pH, and in every case, it was always somewhere between 4.0 and 5.5.
And once the cancer goes into metastases, your pH levels drop lower than they already were.
How to Check Your Own pH Balance?
Luckily for you, you don’t have to schedule any doctor’s appointments for this task. You can do it at home by purchasing pH test strips.
There is no limit to how many times a day you can test yourself, but it’s always a good idea to do so at roughly the same time each morning, as one’s body is most acidic during this period.
The ideal goal for your morning urine pH should be somewhere between 6.5 and 7.5. As for your saliva pH, it should ideally be similar to that of your urine. But you need to wait for at least 2 hours after your meal before measuring your saliva pH.
The proper way to do this is to fill your mouth with your saliva and swallow, then repeat once more. This is for making sure your spit is clean. Once you’ve done that, simply place some saliva to the pH test strip.
If you feel unready to change your diet 180 degrees, that’s fine. You’d best aim for a 70-30 ratio of alkaline-acidic foods. But keep in mind that your diet is not the only thing affecting your pH levels. You should also keep your daily stress levels in check.
The best way to lighten one’s acidic load is through a healthy lifestyle. That means drinking sufficient amounts of water, eating vegetables on a daily basis and keep control of one’s breathing, among many other things.
Stay healthy out there, dear readers.
