Balance pH with Alkaline Foods

Various health concerns can be addressed through a shift to eating more alkaline, rather than acidic, foods.

Your body is intended to function with an internal alkaline environment. Many body processes only function at peak performance with a proper body pH. Poor eating and health practices turn the body’s internal environment into an acidic one. Ailments such as weight gain, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, eczema, ulcers, chronic fatigue, arthritis, osteoporosis, and depression are only a partial list of results from an acidic body. Unless your eating practices are extremely tragic in nature, it is easy to move to an intake of a majority of alkaline foods, rather than acidic, without making the harsh changes normally associated with the word “diet.”

Here is a quote to help you understand the pH’s effect in the body from the Price-Pottenger Foundation for Nutrition:

First, let us define the terms acidity and alkalinity and get familiar with some basic chemistry. In terms of chemistry, when one talks about acidity or alkalinity, one is talking about hydrogen. An acid is a substance that releases hydrogen into a solution and an alkali or base is one that removes hydrogen from a solution. Inside the human body, the acid-alkaline balance is important since many functions in the body occur only at a certain level of acidity or alkalinity. Many enzymes and chemical reactions in the body work best at a particular pH. A small change in pH can have a profound effect on body function. For example, muscle contractibility declines and hormones like adrenaline and aldosterone increase as the body becomes slightly more acid. In addition, different parts of the body have different levels of acidity and alkalinity.

You can easily and inexpensively test your body’s pH level on a daily basis. Immerse Yourself in the Full Healing Contemplation Here »
