The 17 Signs Your Body is Too Acidic and 9 Ways to Quickly Alkalize It (Video)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

 

(N.Morgan) Bodies that are too acidic are unhealthy bodies. When the body is acidic, it creates an unhealthy environment where illness, bacteria, and yeast thrive. When the body is overly acidic, the body takes minerals from vital organs and bones to neutralize the acid and remove it from the body. Due to this, the body’s mineral reserves such as calcium, sodium, potassium and magnesium can run dangerously low and cause damage that can go undetected for years, until it reaches unhealthy levels, causing acidosis. 

 

Most people are already consuming enough acid forming foods, such as dairy, grains, meats and sugar. Since the body is constantly generating acidic waste products from the metabolism, those waste products need to be neutralized or excreted in some way. In order to neutralize the constant acid generation, we need to supply the body with more alkaline foods. 

Consider the health problems caused by mild acidosis (poor pH balance): 

Inflamed sensitive gums, cavities
Immune deficiency
Sciatica, lumbago, stiff neck
Respiratory problems, shortness of breath, coughing
Yeast fungal overgrowth
Low energy and chronic fatigue
Cardiovascular damage, including the constriction of blood vessels and reduction in oxygen
Heart problems, arrhythmias, increased heart rate
Weight gain, obesity and diabetes
Bladder and kidney infections
Accelerated free radical damage
Premature aging
Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea
Osteoporosis, weak brittle bones, hip fractures, bone spurs
Headaches, confusion, sleepiness
Joint pain, aching muscles and lactic acid buildup
Allergies, acne

Signs Your Body Is Too Acidic and Ways to Quickly Alkalize It

Doesn’t the body adjust pH on its own?

Yes the body can adjust pH, but it does so at a price. The normal pH for all tissues and fluids in the body, except the stomach is alkaline. With the exception of blood, all of the body systems have a wide pH range, in part so they can shift to maintain the blood pH, which must be maintained at the very narrow margin of 7.35 to 7.45. For example, if the system becomes too acidic, the blood will take alkaline forming elements from the digestive enzyme system of the small intestine. This now creates a less than optimal environment for proper digestion.

So while the body can adjust pH on its own, it does so at a price to other systems in the body, which can lead to additional health problems. 

Start by knowing your pH 

pH testing is vital because it allows an individual to get a numeric representation of the current level of acidification in their body. A healthy average pH reading will range anywhere from 6.75 to 7.25. The optimal pH numeric reading is 7.36. 

You can’t tell if food is acidic or alkaline by taste alone 

An example of this is many people think of lemons as acidic, while it is classified as an acidic fruit, it is actually an alkaline forming food. During the process of digestion the acids are oxidized into carbon dioxide and water, therefore they do not create an acid condition in the system. 

Calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium and sodium are the main alkalizing minerals. Foods that are high in this minerals are considered alkaline forming food. Most foods have both acid and alkaline minerals in them. If acidic minerals are greater in concentration than that food is considered acidic and vice versa. 

The body has limits 

None of us are invisible and the body has limits for how much it can compensate for acid imbalance. Therefore food intake plays a critical role in maintaining the acid-alkaline balance. Many diseases and general malaise are the result of the body’s attempt to rebalance the internal environment. 

Generally speaking, if the diet includes too many acid forming foods, such as high amounts of meats, grains, dairy, sugars, the body becomes more acidic. If you eat too many alkaline producing foods such as greens, fruits, sea vegetables the body can become too alkaline. Balance is key. 

How does your body respond to specific foods?

It’s important to understand that the way your body responds to various foods depends on your dominant constitutional type. If your dominant type is oxidative then fruits and vegetables move the body to the more acid side, while proteins make your body more alkaline. If however you are more dominant to the autonomic system (ANS) then proteins cause your body to become more acidic and fruits and vegetables shift the body to a more alkaline environment. 

 

Ways to improve your alkalinity 

1. Check your pH regularly 
2. Drink plenty of water (alkaline water when possible) 
3. Remove acidic foods 
4. Replace a traditional lunch with a large green salad. 
5. Use lettuce leaves and collard greens as wraps. 
6. Try not to consume processed foods 
7. Eliminate soda, sugars and coffee. Replace them with herbal tea, herbal coffee and green drinks 
8. Replace dairy milks with coconut or almond milk 
9. Add green juices or smoothies to your diet 

What you eat matters 

Though improving pH levels may require a little more thought, but you’ll appreciate the rewards of your efforts as you begin to feel more energetic and vibrant and your overall health improves. 

There is no question about it, what you eat has a direct impact on your overall health. It was Ann Wigmore, founder of the renowned Hippocrates Health Institute who said, “The food you eat can be either be the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.”

      Much of the list of pH level of different foods is wrong.

    • Pink Slime

      Hello Angle#3(prelim),

      Charlie here. I notice people that vote Democraps have symptoms of acidosis and people that vote Republicans have symptoms of alkalosis.

      That is why I am an independent Dough-nut! :lol: We suffer NONE of those symptoms!!

      Signed,

      Charlie (come join the party!) :lol: :lol:

      Realise it or not, “The Left Side”, which is expressed as The Left Sympathetic Nervous System, is not only Of The Heart, but one’s “Left Side” is Of The Past/Gross-Femininity. That of Emotionality/”Depression”/”Inactivity”/Covertness/Parallellism/”non-Linearity”/”Flow”.

      OTOH, “The Right Side”, which is expressed as The Right SNS, is not only Of The Liver but EVERY human’s “Right Side” of Of The Future/Gross-Masculinity. That of The-Physical-Intellect/”Aggression”/”Activity”/Overtness/”Linearity”/”The One-Tracked-Mind”/”Accumulation”. This so-called “Right Side” has 2 qualities due to its Valence of 2, The Right Side being of Oxygen with The Left Side being of Hydrogen, every human being mainly comprised of Water and is therefore a Hydrolysis Mechanism.

      For the unwary of Trekking/NASA-ing/Alienology/Hissy-Fitting/etc., where there is [Real] Water [as opposed to “Scientifically Expressed”/made-up water], there will be Humans. As such, there are ZERO humans in Da Whole of Outa Space other than on [Grandmother] Earth, The Outer Space, aka “Ether” in Spiritual Parlance, being one of 2 elements that exist in both The Spiritual and The Material. For those who have had experienced it, be conscious and be aware that The “Dead”/Spiritualised has a material presence which do not occupy material space other than sometimes as “A Dot”, which is “expandable” to becoming “Larger Than Life”. Yes, the condemned are not “hallucinating” other than Dem Quacks being unable to realise Reality. Afterall, relegating the realisable-but-lacking-of-confidence to Relativism is much easier than for The Quacks to realise-Reality/becoming-Real, Quackery & Handler being “A Tentacle of The Bookie”. “The Medical Profession” is par excellence at redressing ailments that has an identifiable source but these professionals suddenly become Quacks par excellence when called upon to explain The UnExplanable. More so when The Spiritual is “infinite” when viewed from The Material. One reason why Projective Thinking aims to made said thinker Infinitely Insane. “Aha, but The Brain is very much under-utilised …” Not when The Brain starts to “squeak” when It is made to “Project Thought”, the source of Projective Thinking being The Liver.

      The Right Side, aka Aggression or Being Oxygenated, is Of Acidity. As such, in order to overcome “Acidity” requires more than limiting acidic intake, it requres The Lacking of Aggression. More so when The Right Side has 2 Inversely Proportional Qualitiies, namely The Physical and The Intellectual/”Mental”. The ability to Project Thought. As such, limiting Acidity requires the Limitation of The Projection of Thought, commonly known as “Thinking”, Thinking being the cause of T2 Diabetes amongst a hosts of ailments.

      Once the “laughing”/trivialisation had stopped, it might be pertinent to ponder [but how?] that “Cancer”, say, is Of Depression/The-Left-Side, Cancer being something “external” running amok within The Host/Victim which is why affected cells become Cancerous/”Questioningly Wild & Wanton”. In fact, EVERY Cancer has its “Introduction” via a “Shock to The System”. Be conscious and be aware that “Life”, aka Materialism, is not as important as Reality/Spirituality which is why “Knowledge” is not as important as Its Kinetic/Empowerment. Afterall, should The Energy Creator exists, everything else, including The Hypocrisy within The Duality of Nature, is moot.

      Complexity is meaningless should It not be Simplicity too. OTOH, Aggression’s duty is to morph Comnplexity into Komplexity/Stupidity such that Simplicity becomes Simplistic/Of-Dumbness. All in aid of Aggresion’s attempt at “Cornering The Market”. You know, Counting de Money, hee-hee, haw-haw. As such, the Hypocrisy within The Dual-Natured/Multi-Faceted aims to maintain The Last by favouring The First. This is is due to Reality/Benevolence/Energy-Creation empowering via Unity/”Sharing” whereas Relativity/Malevolence/Energy-Transformation empowers via Division/”Separation”/”Hierarchy”.

      The sole duty of Science is to prove Divinity/Energy-Creativity, aka “The Vibrations” [which has ZERO association to something vibrating] – and that will happen when the institutions/barriers errected by Quackery & Handler for perpetualising Tributes of Fame, Fortune & Immortality are being dismantled by Professionals of Truth. Afterall, without The Perfection/Premeditation of The Periodic Table, Egotists like “Underly-Conscienced Scientists” would not have existed, regardless of how many times they have had Read the Manual on Moi such that they are then able to poof into The Middle, firing on all cylinders, Expecting & Demanding The Righting of This, That, & the Other. For the unwary, “The Dance of Salome” of the Who*e Propaganda is The Middling Truth, said Middling Truth being The Truth that has zero-need-for/due-reference-to The-Beginning/Legacy/History and Its Ending/Progeny/Consequence. Exactly the kind of Truth that Beggars-Thieves, aka “Politicians”, need for accumulating their Fame, Fortune & Immortality.

      When a person lacks the interest in becoming Of Truth, it is because he is only interested in owning said Truth. That of Ownership Issues like “Cornering The Market”/”Counting de Money”. When Knowledge, which is The Potential, is not empowered/attained/made-Kinetic, said Knowledge will become the driver for owning that Knowledge. That of a Religion sustained by Its Religiosity/Belief-System.

      Remember that unless and until self is able to attest to the veracity of the above, said above Knowledge should not go A-Knowledging. Not that it would, of course. As such, neither Blindly Accept nor Blindly Reject other than Changing from Selfishness/Innately-Taking to Selflessness/Innately-Gifting. That of Unconditionality, which is to gift Without-Thought/In-Innocence, Innocence being a word describing The Lacking of Thought/Questioning. A state which is ONLY possible when Consciousness & Awareness realises Conscience, Thought being The Infinite-but-Futile struggle between Over/The -Past & Under/The-Future in order to ascertain which is The Present, Insanity being when The Insane are “successfully” posing as The Sane.

      And where would you take the Ph? Urine, sweat, saliva, or blood? I am sure they would all be slightly different. If you are really worried about this get a chem 12 blood test. If everything is in the normal range, you have my permission to ignore all this crap.

      • srsly1

        probably took a stomach pH test. Of course it will be acidic

    • srsly1

      It hasn’t even been 24 hours and THIS article is being posted …..again.

      • King Of Jambalamba

        no one made you comment or read this! Go gigity goo your self!

    • MrAnthony

      N. Morgan is a thief.

      Typical N. Morgan: Stolen article from thehealthysoul.com including graphics and references. No reference to the original author. Buries link to real article in a bunch of other links, never indicating that she just copied and pasted.

      She should be ashamed of her theft, and BIN ought to ban her from “writing” articles that are just cut and paste theft jobs.

      • Vein Arde

        Just wondering. Have you been to that site, “thehealthysoul.com”, lately? It’s a site that’s for sale. There’s nothing there! Nothing to copy/paste from!

        • MrAnthony

          should be theheartysoul.com

      • Eggzactly

        All articles are like that on BIN. Guess you havent been here very long have you Billy? :lol:
