PH is a measurement of the Potential of Hydrogen in a solution. The scale runs from 0 – 14. From 0 – 6.99 indicates the solution is acidic. 7.01 – 14 says the solution is alkaline or base, with 7 being neutral. For maximum health our body PH should be 7 or above.
Human blood has to stay at 7.365 for optimal health. If something occurs that causes the blood’s PH to go down, the body will take calcium from the bones or teeth to buffer the acid thereby keeping it in its optimal range.
THINGS THAT CAUSE US TO BE ACIDIC
Coffee, tea, alcohol, soft drinks, energy drinks are all acid producing in the body. All meats are acid producing as well. Some fruits are acid producing while others are alkaline producers.
THINGS THAT CAUSE US TO BE ALKALINE
Water, some herb teas, fresh squeezed lime or lemon juice when sweetened with a natural sugar (honey, maple syrup or stevia), sodium bicarbonate (1 teaspoon of baking soda stirred into 4 ounces of water) sea salt, and all vegetables cause us to be more alkaline.
Being too acidic is the cause of many diseases today, such as osteoporosis and fibromyalgia. When one is too acidic the flow of electrical energy in the body speeds us, thereby causing tissues in various organs to weaken, wear out and die. To be alkaline on the other hand, causes one’s body to be strengthened, more energetic and live in optimal health.
Worry, being emotionally upset, and stress are also factors in being acidic.
WHAT YOU CAN DO TO BECOME MORE ALKALINE
Eat less acid foods and eat more vegetables! Drink lots of water – take your weight and divide it by two and drink that many ounces per day. Learn to deal with your stressors will help too. Forgive those who have hurt or offended you. Make sure you are right with God also makes one more positive and more alkaline.
