You have heard about alkaline diet because the foods that you consume can have acidic or alkaline effect on the body. The acidosis is formed when you eat acid forming food, stress you get and some toxins come from the environment. When you consume acidic food then you are at the risk of digestive issues, fatigue, weight gain etc.
In case if you are in the environment where your body gets too acidic then your cells can behave in a toxic manner.
ALKALINITY HELPS TO MAINTAIN GOOD OVERALL HEALTH
The pH scale starts from 0. The whole scale works in such way that 14 are the most alkaline, 0 is the most acidic while 7 is considered to be the neutral. The human body needs the environment of 7.4 for optimal health. The different organs have different pH Levels such as pH of 5 is for skin, 6.5-7.0 is the pH of saliva. The digestive tract has pH of 1.5-7.0 that also depends upon the food that we consume.
In 1931 Dr. Otto Warburg was give The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine after discovering that 90-95% of cancer is triggered by an acidic environment. He also found that it cannot grow in alkaline environment if the pH is 7.36.
After this discovery many researchers have tested various pH levels of foods and their impact on the human body. The over acidity is associated with the development of osteoporosis, heart diseases and cancer etc.
HERE IS HOW TO DETECT IF YOUR BODY IS TOO ACIDIC:
A pH paper can be used to detect the pH level of the saliva. It helps to know that whether the body is getting too acidic or not. You can also know the acidity in your body if you experience these symptoms
- Chronic fatigue
- Inability to get enough air
- Easily running out of breath
- Muscle cramps and pain after walking short distances
When pH levels drops then body creates homeostasis or keeps the balance by accumulating acidic substances from the body organs such a liver, lungs etc. This helps your body to maintain the pH of 7.35-7.45. These acidic substances attack your healthy cells and turn them into toxins one. If this problem is not addressed on time then these cells spread all across the body.
