balance in the body.
does ph mean in the body?
is the potential of ?hydrogen? but in lay terms we are referring to
the acid/alkaline balance in the body.
PH is calibrated on a scale from 1 (very acidic) to 14 (very
alkaline) with 7 being ph neutral. Most
of our body fluids run at a slightly alkaline state with the exception
of stomach fluids. Our blood has a ph of 7.35
to 7.45. Outside of this range death usually follows, so the body
has many ways to counter any imbalances and create ?homeostasis or
inner balance, for its main aim is survival.
things that go between our lips these days are acidic.
Our lifestyles are generally considered acid producing and almost
all forms of toxicity we expose our bodies to, are acidic.
Our body has to work hard to give us alkaline blood. As a
naturopath I see this daily in practice when performing live blood
analysis; acid crystals or all colours ? some from drugs, pesticide
residue, alcohol, uric acid and assorted others from the body?s effort
to dispose of these dangerous substances.
blood passes thru our heart at the rate of aprox 130 litrs/hour. The
kidneys filter one litre of blood per min and if clogged with acid
wastes may cause kidney stones and inflammatory conditions of the
liver is then forced to unburden itself of these acid wastes and deposit
them in joints ? causing arthritis, fibromyalgia and other problems.
Another way the body alkalises the blood is through the respiration
(lungs); ever noticed how when you?re sick (and usually more toxic)
you seem to increase your respiratory rate, noticed more in children as
supports an alkaline environment in the blood and tissues of the body.
This is WHY breathing
exercises yoga etc., are valued as good health practices.
Oxygen not only gives more energy but helps to detoxify and
alkaline the body.
way the body deals with acidity is to ?buffer? with an alkaline
body?s most abundant alkaline mineral is calcium found in bones and
teeth. In my opinion,
osteoporosis is not caused by lack of calcium or of dairy products, but
rather by the body having to beg
borrow and steal calcium from the bones etc for alkalising the body.
comes into the equation here too, as stress uses up alot of magnesium
(another alkaline mineral), stress is also an acid producing lifestyle
factor, robbing the body of both alkalising minerals. Both magnesium and
calcium help to support each other.
foods, except fruits and vegetables are acid producing: poor digestion
from not chewing etc, causes excess acid wastes; alcohol, drugs, junk
food, smoking, toxic debris, shallow breathing, - sedentary Lifestyle,
all add to acidic load.
can I do?
assist the body in being more alkaline we can choose to do any or all
combinations of the following:
an 80% alkaline (fruit and vegetables)
20% acid diet (grains etc).
Supplement with alkaline
substances such as vegie juices, especially beetroot and carrot and
virtually any greens.
Liquid chlorophyll, powdered or
fresh barley, wheat grasses, spriulina and chlorella.
Calcium magnesium supplements
Deep diaphragmatic breathing, yoga
and detoxification processes to dredge the acid wastes.
FIR Saunas are an excellent and
thorough way to dredge the skin and clean the bodily organs ....?skin
our largest eliminatory organ?
Along with body scrubs, Dead Sea salt scrub and mud wrap massage.
Breathing deeply but also by the
use of essential herbal oils in a deeply radiant light heated room
emitting negative ions.
Kidneys and bladder can be drained
with the use of Herbal Teas and
drinking Alkaline water
And last but not least Colon
Massage and bodywork to Detoxify and maintenance measures in place.
