Maintaining Proper Acid / Alkaline Balance
The Dangers of Body Acidosis

Acidosis is a condition in which the normal acid-alkaline balance of the body has shifted towards acidic. The human body has a complex regulation mechanism designed to maintain proper acid alkaline balance.

Acid / alkaline levels are in balance when the concentration of acidic ions (H+) equals the concentration of negatively charged alkaline ions (OH-) . The more hydrogen ions present, the higher the tissue acidity levels. Neutrality is measured as 7 on the acid-alkaline scale. The pH scale ranges from 0 (highest acidity) to 14 (highest alkalinity.) Many illnesses and disease conditions are related to a slow shift of the body balance to the acidic side.

HOW THE BODY MAINTAINS PROPER pH

The body has several complex mechanisms to maintain the acid/alkaline balance. the lungs expel carbon dioxide which, when excessive, forms carbonic acid. Kidneys eliminate acids in the urine. Even the skin tissues are involved in secreting excess acids.

Blood plasma should be maintained in the range of 7.4, slightly alkaline, for optimal health. When the body is unable to control the levels of acids, these acids are deposited elsewhere in the body causing illness.

CAUSES OF ACIDOSIS

Metabolic acidosis can be caused by a number of factors including: inadequate water intake, stress, consumption of acid-forming foods, too little physical activity, and age-related decline in kidney function.

Foods that contribute to acidosis include fats, dairy products, alcoholic beverages, processed foods, and coffee.

SYMPTOMS OF ACIDOSIS

Some of the symptoms associated with acidosis include: fatigue, frequent sighing, insomnia, water retention, gastrointestinal problems, and reduced immune function.

CONDITIONS ASSOCIATED WITH CHRONIC ACIDOSIS

Disease conditions that are associated with chronic body acidosis include gout, heartburn, gastritis, sore muscles, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, skin disease, obesity, frequent colds, and more serious conditions such as heart disease and cancer.

REVERSING CHRONIC METABOLIC ACIDOSIS

Daily consumption of alkaline water produced by a quality water ionizer is one of the most effective ways to maintain proper body acid/alkaline levels. In addition, reducing consumption of acid-forming foods, proper rest and exercise, and lowering stress levels can help you eliminate acidosis.
