Alkaline Body Vs The Toxic

pH (potential of hydrogen) is the measure the of balance between positively and negatively charged ions in the body fluids, blood, urine and saliva. A low pH number below 7 indicates that your body fluid is on the acidic side, above 7 indicates it on the alkaline side, 7 is neutral. You should test your pH levels every 2 days. You can use pH test strips to determine your pH factor quickly and easily. If your urinary pH fluctuates between 6.0 to 6.5 in the morning and between 6.5 and 7.0 in the evening, your body is functioning within a healthy range. If your saliva pH stays between 6.5 and 7.5 all day, your body is functioning in a healthy range. The best time to test pH is one hour before and two hours after a meal. Additionally, you can have a lab test your blood pH. The blood pH is a more accurate indication of your overall system pH and a true indicator of your overall balance. Ideally, your blood pH should be 7.36.

Note that a food's acid or alkaline-forming tendency in the body has nothing to do with the actual pH of the food itself. For example, lemons are very acidic, however the end-products they produce after digestion and assimilation are very alkaline so lemons are alkaline-forming in the body. Likewise, meat will test alkaline before digestion but it leaves very acidic residue in the body so, like nearly all animal products, meat is very acid-forming.

An acidic pH can occur from, an acid forming diet, emotional stress, toxic overload, and/or immune reactions or any process that deprives the cells of oxygen and other nutrients. The body will try to compensate for acidic pH by using alkaline minerals. If the diet does not contain enough minerals to compensate, a build up of acids in the cells will occur.

An acidic balance will: decrease the body's ability to absorb minerals and other nutrients, decrease the energy production in the cells, decrease it's ability to repair damaged cells, decrease it's ability to detoxify heavy metals, make tumor cells thrive, and make it more susceptible to fatigue and illness. A blood pH of 6.9, which is only slightly acidic, can induce coma and death.

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 animal products like meat, eggs and dairy, and far too low in alkaline producing foods like fresh vegetables. Additionally, we eat acid producing processed foods like white flour and sugar and drink acid producing beverages like coffee and soft drinks. We use too many drugs, which are acid forming; and we use artificial chemical sweetners like NutraSweet, Spoonful, Sweet 'N Low, Equal, or Aspartame, which are poison and extremely acid forming. One of the best things we can do to correct an overly acid body is to clean up the diet and lifestyle.

To maintain health, the diet should consist 80% alkaline forming foods and 20% acid forming foods. Strong resistence against disease.

Amaranth
Black Rice
Kamut
Quinoa
Rye
Spelt
Tef
Wild Rice
