Why Maintain An Acid/Alkaline Balance? Why is It So Important?
The key factor to promote healing and improve health is maintaining a balanced Acid/Alkaline state in the body. When this balance is maintained, the body is a well-oxygenated environment. An acid is a caustic erosive sour substance that has an electropositive charge. An acidic body often referred to as metabolic acidosis, has thick blood that over coagulates and does not oxygenate properly. The cells cannot dispose of their wastes; therefore, the body’s ability to heal acute or chronic injuries or health challenges in general is impaired. This impairment is characterized by sick blood, diseased cells, inflammation, excess body fat and suppressed immune functions. Acidic blood blocks vitamin absorption and starves your body of essential micronutrients, creates toxic buildup in clogged cells, slows down organ function and makes you feel sluggish and weak, prevents proper digestion and creates excess gas and bloating, causes unhealthy weight gain, speeds the aging process and makes you look older!
These conditions are ideal for contracting and breeding various microorganisms, including viruses, bacteria, fungi, yeasts and parasites. Any kind of infection can thrive in an acid body. A lowered immune system results in low resistance to infections, colds, flu, low energy, and allergies. Other common acidic disorders are characterized by tightness, tension and stiffness that can include back, neck, leg and arm pain.
