Test Your Acidity
Life is so strange, we service our cars, change the oil, flush the engine and generally ensure that everything is maintained nicely so that it works. Why don't we do the same with our body? It is so simple to take care of the body so that it works nicely for us.
Unbeknown to most of us, our lifestyle, environment and diet take its toll on us. The price we pay is often unseen and invisible until the machinery of the body begins to show signs of dysfunction.
Interestingly, so often in the news, we read about the environment and so many different green initiatives. The purpose being to clean up the environment so that we can continue to live on this planet. Why is it that we rarely consider being pro-active with regards to maintaining the internal environment, within our very own body.
A simple tell-tale sign that our internal environment is polluted is by checking the levels of acidity or alkalinity within the body. Why not stop for a moment test the pH of the body using pH tape or strips. You can use these to test your urine and determine whether the body is acidic or alkaline.
The healthy pH of the body is between 7.3 and 7.4 - which is slightly alkaline. For most people, our body system has become polluted and will normally tend to acidity, indicated by an acidic pH such as pH 5.5 or even lower say pH 5.0.When the body is slightly alkaline this helps to keep all the functions of the body running smoothly. Any imbalance can cause rapid degeneration of the blood cells, which causes the body to become susceptible to many kinds of diseases.
Would you believe, that by maintaining an ideal pH balance in the body, one can slow the ageing process, boost energy, vitality and confidence? To do this it helps to consume fresh vegetables (preferably organic), and a good quantity of green leaves. Unfortunately, conventional produce is laced with chemicals and pesticides which really do affect the natural alkaline balance of the body.
The reason being that these substances are being introduced to your body on a daily basis. This results in an accumulation of toxins within the body, triggering a tendency towards overall, acidity. Your body will need to neutralise this acidity in an attempt to maintain the balance of natural alkalinity.
Ironically, most of us are deficient in minerals and often the only available supply of minerals is contained within our bones. Hence minerals tend to be leached from the bones in an effort to neutralise the prevailing acidity within the body. The result is what is commonly known as osteoporosis.
Fresh green salads and green juices all help to neutralise excess acidity within the body. A simple formula that all of you can use to maintain that healthy pH balance that will rejuvenate the body, give you bags of energy, and ultimately stimulate the body's natural healing and repairing processes.
