Our bodies live and die at a cellular level, with billions of cells in our body working around the clock to maintain essential body functions and alkalinity. Proper pH balance is absolutely key for our health. Numerous diseases including cancer thrive in an acidic body. Once your body turns acidic, bacteria, yeast, viruses and mold can start accumulating and growing within, creating a perfect environment for the development of serious ailments.
The acidity of our body also results in cellular oxygenation which slowly, but surely destroys our cells. Once the pH levels drop below 7.4, the blood and cells get less than the required amount of oxygen, which makes the body a great breeding ground for bacteria and viruses.
In order to prevent the damage, the body starts storing acids in our fat cells. This results in calcium depletion from the tissues and bones and makes them more prone to damage. Luckily, restoring your pH balance is as simple as introducing a simple beverage in your diet.
According to a recent meta-analysis of studies which involved over 9000 participants, people with chronic acidosis are at a significantly higher risk of bone loss. Additionally, one study showed that hip fractures in middle-aged women are usually caused by an acidic body which itself is a result of poor eating habits.
“The immune cells which are highly acidic or highly alkaline don’t produce antibodies and lose the ability to destroy microbes. In this case, the person affected becomes more susceptible to bacterial, viral and fungal infections as well as more serious diseases,” Dr. Willian Lee Cowden says.
Knowing this, it becomes clear that we must strive to alkalize the body and maintain the alkalinity afterwards. You can test your own pH levels by spitting on a pH strip and observing the color, then comparing it with the chart. These strips are available for cheap at any health store.
Additionally, you can also try the following alkaline remedy which can prevent a variety of ailments.
Here’s how to prepare it:
- 2 teaspoons honey
- 2 lemons
- A glass of purified water
Squeeze 2 lemons in a glass of purified water, then add the honey and stir well with a teaspoon. Drink this tasty lemonade during the day to regulate your pH levels and reduce the acidity in your body.
Furthermore, we also suggest including alkaline fruits and veggies in your diet. According to experts, your diet should consist of 75% alkaline foods in order to stay healthy.
