Com-me.com, From the brain to the intestine, the human body is a finely balanced system of chemicals, bacteria and cells.
One of the simplest ways to say that your balance is outside the impact is to look at the pH level of your body. And what exactly is the pH level of your body? What it means? How do you know that it is out of balance?
Simply put, it’s a measure of acidity and alkalinity. They are both important in their own way. Your stomach, for example, requires high acidity to digest food while your immune system rely on alkalinity.
What it means?
The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14. The lower the number, the higher the acidity level. The perfect, neutral balance is at 7 – This is the level your body wants to maintain because it ensures the functioning of different systems with the right environment. But what often happens is that the body is pushed into a state of total acidity, which can have harmful effects.
So your body is too sour.
You need to look closer to the way your body works.
1 – Overweight
Too much acid in your body causes it to produce more insulin and therefore keeps more fat.
Detoxification systems of your body are not able to cope with a huge amount of acid in your body and push it back into your fat tissues, where they hold to the cells.
Furthermore, your metabolism – which relies on appropriate alkaline levels – has a bad functioning properly, which stops your body from burning calories.
So, if you notice that you have a hard time losing weight, it’s a good indicator that your body has much more acid than it can handle.
2 – Bone Weakness
Your body is incredibly clever and efficient.
When faced with too much acid, your body will find alkali from somewhere – your bones.
At first, you may not notice anything. But as your body continues to extract nutrients – such as calcium – from your bones in an attempt to fight high acidity, you will end up with weak bones that are characterized by easy breakage and high risk of osteoporosis.
That’s why doctors are asking patients with osteoporosis to avoid high acid foods such as coffee.
3 – Tooth Sensitivity
In 2015, a study was published in the Journal of International Journal of Chemical Engineering and applications linking the high acidity of the body with a decrease in the strength of the tooth enamel strength.
If you notice that you suffer from caries or you can not eat cold or hot food without your teeth getting out of pain, this could be a sign that you suffer from degradation of the acidic acid.
4 – Sleep problems
This last sign is an indicator of how common is high acidity in the human body.
Polls have consistently shown that Americans are among the most vulnerable people in the world. There is a high likelihood that the body’s acidity is guilty.
Remember how your body carries calcium from your bones in an attempt to fight acidity? When the level of calcium is exhausted, it suffers from insomnia, according to a study by the North Dakota Center for Human Nutrition.
How to fix high acidity
You realized that your body was too sour. What can you do about it?
A few things. Let’s explore!
One very popular way to fight acidity is an alkaline diet. One man claims to have helped him to win cancer.
Here’s what you need to eat a lot to maintain an alkaline diet:
What to eat less than:
- Most grains
- Packaged, processed snacks
- Canned food
Baking soda and apple juice
We’ve already written about a simple home remedy – baking soda and apple vinegar.
All you have to do is take one-third of a spoonful of baking soda and mix it well with 2 tablespoons of organic apple vinegar. You will notice that the mixture is very greasy. Wait until it stops and add 8 ounces of water. Then drink the mixture.
