Are you fit, healthy, and full of energy all the time? Or, do you feel heavy, tired, in pain, sluggish, and struggle to fall asleep at night? If you belong to the second group, you should know that you are experiencing some of the most common signs of excess acidity of the body.
Excessive acidity is often the reason behind fatigue, joint and muscle pain, obesity, stress, skin issues, poor digestion, and acid reflux.
The Noble prize winner, Dr. Otto H Warburg, found that acidity in the body is the reason behind oxygen deficiency. He also discovered that cancer cells are anaerobic (do not breathe oxygen), meaning that they cannot thrive in an alkaline environment and the presence of high oxygen levels.
Cancer cells are able to live without oxygen, and if a normal cell lacks 35% of its oxygen for 48 hours, it might become cancerous.
Our diet plays the most important role in the regulation of the pH levels in the body. The pH balance is the balance of the alkaline and acid fluids and cells. In order to survive, our system should balance the blood’s pH levels at a slightly alkaline level of 7.365.
However, the Standard American Diet is filling our bodies with numerous acids, like processed foods, coffee, sugar, GMOs, soda, refined grains, meat, gluten, dairy, artificial sweeteners, etc.
These disrupt the normal pH balance in the body, leading to interrupted cellular activities and functions, and heartburn, diabetes, cancer, heart diseases, and osteoporosis. The acidic state of the body for longer also accelerates aging.
The acidic body is prone to numerous health issues, since viruses, parasites, bad bacteria, and Candida overgrowth thrive in acidic environments.
Moreover, such a diet, in a combination with regular stress will lead to massive amounts of inflammation in the body and joints, and the body will find it extremely difficult to function normally.
Therefore, alkalizing the body is a must in order to optimize health and prevent severe health issues and diseases. One of the most successful ways to alkalize the following is to drink the following homemade drink:
- 1/3 tsp. baking soda
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice or organic apple cider vinegar
- 8 oz.Water
Mix the two ingredients, and the combination will immediately start fizzing. Yet, you should continue adding baking soda until the reaction stops. Next, add the water, and drink all at once.
This will help you neutralize the acidity and alkalize the body, supporting overall health.
Moreover, to maintain the optimal environment in the body, make sure you increase the intake of alkaline foods, drink plenty of water, eat lots of green veggies, exercise regularly, and reduce stress.
