Many already know that the acidity in the body can contribute to cancer, but not everyone knows how to identify signs of Acidosis and how to remedy them.
More specifically, our body works well at a pH of 7.0-7.4, though there are some variations within this interval.
For example, the pharynx, esophagus, and mouth are slightly acidic with a pH of 6.8; the pH of the stomach is a healthy 1.3-extremely acid; the pH of the small intestine is similar to that of liquids in the body, and the colon has a pH between 5.5 and 7.
This is important, because, as Dr. Otto Warburg discovered for the first time, the acidity contributes to the development of cancer cells.
Also, if the pH is outside the normal limits, digestive problems may occur and the body is unable to absorb nutrients from food, which results in a constant state of fatigue. Insulin and blood pressure, cholesterol, body weight and the functioning of the immune system are all influenced by the pH level.
Here are some signs and symptoms of acidosis:
- A state of confusion
- Large Brain Dysfunction that can lead to the coma if measures are not taken,
- Sensation of fatigue
- Asterixis (flicker, especially extremities of hands)
- A headache
Fortunately, it is easy to test your pH-all you need is just some test strips of pH with litmus paper, that you can buy from a store or pharmacy and a little discipline.
You need to do a test of urine and saliva every morning, then hold a record to compare values. Saliva should lie between 7 and 7.4 during days; morning urine should be between 6 and 6.5.
The simplest method of alkalinization for anyone: eating fruits, vegetables, seeds, and walnuts.
The pH of a food does not necessarily indicate the effect that it has on the body. For example, lemons and lemon-lime have an effect on the body, alkalinization in spite of their initial acidity, so it’s advisable to squeeze a lemon in the water and drink before a meal.
Of course, don’t forget to keep your stress levels under control. Also, sleep quality, sport and relaxation exercises do wonders for the body and mind.
