Balancing your pH for Healthy Living
Just as your body regulates its temperature, it will also regulate your body’s internal pH with exact precision.
As a matter of fact your body will go to great lengths to keep the pH of your blood in a range from 7.3 -7.4.
“Chronic acidity” in your body will interrupt all cellular activates and functions – “It interferes with life itself.”
When the pH of our bodies gets out of balance and we become too acidic, we have low energy, fatigue, excess weight, irregularity, heart burn, acne and aches & pains. Acidosis of the blood is the prime reason most of our health suffers and always will.
Maintaining your pH facilitating your blood/body with more alkaline supplements and or foods (such as pHresh greens) helps provide support for your body.
What is Acid?
Like the exhaust from your vehicle, it’s the residue that is left over after your body breaks down process foods, meats, sugar, alcohol and other acidic foods.
What is Alkalinity?
Alkalinity is the byproduct of digesting organic dark green vegetables, sea algae, and grasses. Not only are they filled with micro-nutrients but, they are high in pH. Since your body recognizes that they are organic, your body is able to assimilate them with ease.
High Acid Diets Side Effects:
Your body only knows how to survive and will go to great lengths to keep your blood, organs, fluids and tissues functioning properly. In order for that you body must operate in a balance and harmonist state.
When your body is stressed or over taxed trying to compensate for the pH imbalances it suffers immensely. This excess stress leads to toxicity and fatigue.
Acidosis of the blood may contribute to and lead to arthritis, high blood pressure, blood sugar inconsistencies (diabetes), irregularity, fungal problems, (yeast & candida), heart burn and acid re-flux, inflammation of the joints, stress, excess weight and other disorders.
Acidity or acidosis leads to toxicity which leads to micro-form over growth (bacteria, pathogens, fungi, yeast and parasites) which can eventually lead to illness.
When you become too acidic your body can not detoxify at optimal efficiency, because your body is always trying to buffer/neutralize the acid. As a result, toxins build up causing stress as well the activation of emergency buffers to help neutralize the acid, stressing the entire system again to compensate for toxicity.
A good example of acidosis is weight gain; fat is an excellent binding agent. Your body will use fat when necessary to bind and store toxins. Simply stated your weight problems is more than a “Fat or Metabolic problems” It’s really means you are “over acid” and your body is only protecting itself.
Cell Science: Your blood cells are one of the smallest organisms in your body. Would you think that if your bloods cells where disturbed that maybe the rest of your body would be disturbed as well? Your body creates acidity at the cellular level. Blood cells have a positive electrical charge in the inner core (acid) and a negative electrical charge (alkaline). When you are over acidic you strip the outer layer of the blood cell away. Once the blood cells are stripped of their charge your blood starts to flow like slug. When your blood is balanced the blood starts to flow and operate sufficiently and efficiently.
The extracellular fluids must be alkaline in order to maintain the negative electrical charge (just like the ocean) on the outside of your blood cells.
Three causes of acidosis or acidity:
Your body becomes imbalanced and over acidic primarily as a result of three factors.
1: Ingestion of acids:
Acidic diet – Processed Sugars, Processed Foods, Meats, Soft Drinks, Coffee, Alcohol and Smoking. All of these create imbalance blood. An over abundance of these acids can overwhelm your body’s ability to neutralize them.
2: Creation of acids:
When you become too acidic micro-forms of bacteria create their own acid environment creating even more acidity (like when food spoils). These bacteria steal your nutrients by feeding on them and creating a host of toxins that are acidifying and are potentially very dangerous.
3: Improper neutralization of acids:
Not all acids are the same. Some are weak and some are strong. Weak acids like citric and acetic are much easier to neutralize and buffer. Uric acid (meats) is much harder to neutralize.
When your body’s buffering system become depleted or compromised, acids begin to build up. As acids start to build they damage and compromise all systems within your body (just imagine if you never took the garbage).
The pHresh Solution:
When you become more aware of the all of the “acids” that we ingest every day. You would naturally want to integrate more alkaline foods and supplements into your daily diet. In order to have our bodies work at optimal levels “all day every day” give the gift of pHresh greens 3x a day for the first 7 days and you will start to begin to feel pHresh (balanced)!
In order for your body to maintain its optimal pH you must try to maintain a 80% alkaline diet and 20% acidic diet intake. Most of us today are eating the inverse of that! When you become aware of how the breakdown of acidity works you become pHresh!
1: Breakfast – prior to your first meal have 1 teaspoon of pHresh greens (3-4 serving of vegetables).
2: Lunch – prior to your meal have 1 teaspoon of pHresh greens
3: Dinner – Either have a large salad or vegetables or 1 teaspoon of pHresh greens
