If you are Sick you are Aicd!!! Acid Alkaline Imbalance

Imagine if physicians and other health-care professionals routinely ignored a fundamental aspect of health. That is just what happens when it comes to recognizing imbalances in the body’s pH (acid-alkaline ratio). Conventional medicine ignores pH balance — while holistic doctors recognize that our bodies are continually striving for this balance, and that chronic imbalance leaves us susceptible to disease. Most important: Acid-alkaline balance is easy to regulate. You can make very simple changes to your diet — and improve your body’s pH balance within hours.

Here’s what you need to know…
pH stands for “potential of hydrogen.” The concentration of hydrogen atoms in a solution determines its pH value, measured on a scale of 0 to 14, with lower numbers indicating higher acidity. Water, which is considered neutral (neither acidic nor alkaline), has a pH of 7. Ionized alkaline water has a pH of 8.5- 9.5, your body needs to be slightly alkaline 7.35 to be healthy.

The body’s pH balance strongly influences the risk for osteoporosis, sarcopenia (muscle loss), fractures and kidney stone formation — and diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, thyroid problems, cancer and other insidious conditions.

When the body’s fluids become too acidic, minerals are pulled out of bones and tissues to compensate — leading, in the long term, to thinner bones and lower muscle mass. Overly acidic tissues also make one susceptible to inflammation (a known risk for many chronic diseases), impair enzymatic reactions in cells and overload the lymphatic system, impeding the body’s natural detoxification process.

I just do not understand why doctors and nutritionist do not cover the lymphatic system with their patients more, this system is vital for flushing out acid waste that if it gets to clogged up, it could cause cancer to develop, but yet very few people understand how it works.


Physicians learn in medical school to recognize the symptoms of renal acidosis (a sign of kidney failure) and ketoacidosis (muscle tissue breakdown in people with type 1 diabetes). They also recognize that when urine is more alkaline, you are better protected from developing a certain type of kidney stone. However, doctors often miss more subtle signs of low-grade metabolic acidosis (roughly translated as a chronically acidic system) that can affect long-term health.

How common is this? My hunch is that low-grade metabolic acidosis affects the majority of people, based on the fact that a healthful diet and the right type of water (Kangen water) makes for a healthful pH — and most Americans consume not enough fruits and vegetables. Most Americans will test acidic readings. With healthful changes, their health problems often improve as their urine readings (which reflect blood pH) become more alkaline.

Unfortunately, the importance of acid-alkaline balance to one’s health is controversial, which helps explain why it is not a more common part of health and wellness discussions.


When it comes to pH, the kidneys rule. They play a central role in maintaining the body’s pH. When acid-yielding foods lower the body’s pH, the kidneys coordinate efforts to buffer that acidity. Bones release calcium and magnesium to reestablish alkalinity, and muscles are broken down to produce ammonia, which is strongly alkaline. By the time the response is complete, your bone minerals and broken-down muscle get excreted in urine. Over a lifetime, this slow breakdown of bone and muscle catches up with people. In fact, acidosis seems to increase with age, which may reflect a lifelong poor diet. Researchers now believe that weak muscles set the stage for falls and fractures in the elderly.

It is ironic. Millions of people eat calcium-rich dairy products — milk, cheese and yogurt — in an effort to maintain their bones. However, most dairy products are acid forming. That might partially explain why the US has high rates of osteoporosis, even though Americans consume huge quantities of dairy. Eating an overabundance of meat, poultry and seafood is also problematic. Reason: The breakdown of protein releases sulfuric acid, further contributing to an acidic pH. Even whole grains are acid forming. Trick: Breathing slowly helps to reduce acidity.

Eating and hydrating your self with the right water (Ionized restructured alkaline water) to maintain a slightly alkaline pH is easier than you might think, as a pH-friendly diet is consistent with other healthy eating habits. When people eat more foods that are healthful (fruits and vegetables) and drink negative charged alkaline water, their main health problems diminish and numerous others unexplained problems (low energy levels, joint and muscle pain, rashes and acne) start to improve.

Here is what I recommend…

First, change the type of water you are drinking it starts here, it has to be ionized restructured alkaline water (kangen water), remember not all alkaline water are the same the best alkaline water out there is Kangen water. You have to have a way to flush out the acid build up at the cellular level daily. This alone will help you change the type of foods you are eating. Go to a whole food plant base diet. You have now given your body the tools it needs to heal it self.
