How Do You Know if Your Body is Too Acidic?

Basically, there are two very simple ways to determine if your body is acidic: you can use regular pH paper to do a saliva test, or, if you are suffering from the following chronic symptoms:

  • Muscle pain or cramping after walking short distances
  • Constant fatigue
  • Easily running out of breath
  • Often feeling like you can’t get enough air

When your pH level falls, your body naturally attempts to regulate itself (to create homeostasis) by capturing and storing excessively acidic substances in your organs such as your kidneys, liver and lungs, thereby maintaining an optimal pH of between 7.35-7.45.

These acidic substances, however, ultimately begin to attack your healthy cells, causing them to become toxic, damaged and sick.

Over time, if the issue is not addressed, these cells can metastasize—grow uncontrollably and spread to other parts or organs in your body.

Your Diet Is Too Acidic

One of the biggest reasons for chronic acidosis is our 21st-century diet consisting of sugar, caffeine, highly processed foods and alcohol. The additives, pesticides and growth hormones used to make and grow our food are also highly acidic to our bodies.

One of the best ways to counter this, however, (apart from changing your diet) is to flush your body with alkaline water.

Since your body is around 70% water, when you ensure that this water is alkaline, you are helping your body create homeostasis.

How to Make Alkaline Water

Ingredients:

  • 1 organic lemon (it is important to use only organic lemons as they are pesticide-free)
  • 2 L of purified water (an osmosis filter is good if you have one, but water that is free of all chemicals and additives is the goal)
  • 1 tablespoon Himalayan salt (which you can find at most health food stores)
  • 1 large glass jar (it must be glass as plastic contains chemicals and impurities that are acidic to your body)

Directions:

  • Fill the glass jar with the water
  • Slice the lemon and add it to the water. (do not squeeze out the juice)
  • Add the Himalayan salt.
  • Cover the jar and leave it at room temperature for 12-24 hours.

After the water has had time to sit, drink 3 glasses of this alkaline water on an empty stomach. It is always best to do this first thing in the morning before you start your day or put anything else in to your body.

You can also drink alkaline water throughout the day. Over time, you will begin to see a difference in how you feel (more energy), your skin will become clearer, and your brain more alert—you will generally feel more alive.

If you couple this with a healthier diet, one in which you avoid processed foods, sugar and additives, it won’t be long before you begin to see a healthier (more alkaline) you.
