Body pH

The effect of acid alkaline imbalance


Body PH and acidity

When acids accumulate, the body neutralizes them using buffer systems. But when these systems are overloaded, the body borrows alkaline minerals from vital organs and bones to help dissolve the acidic compounds and eliminate them safely. 
Over time, this process can weaken organs and bones, and in the latter case, cause osteoporosis. Consequently, a high acidity level can have a negative effect on all systems, particularly the digestive, intestinal, circulatory, respiratory and immune systems. 
Though rather uncommon and usually the result of certain medications, high alkalinity can cause the same kind of problems as high acidity. However, rebalancing the pH in an alkaline body is often a much more difficult and lengthier process.

Effect of a high acidity level

Scientific studies have shown that an overly acidic environment can promote demineralization (osteoporosis in particular), as well as muscle atrophy and some types of kidney stones. Often, metabolic acidity coincides with fatigue, bad breath, poor digestion, imbalances of the intestinal flora accompanied by putrefaction, dark urine with a strong odour, muscle pain, joint pain, skin problems (eczema and psoriasis), excessive perspiration, cramps, various fungal infections, migraines and so on.

Many metabolic reactions will not complete properly without a specific pH. Changes in pH, i.e. the acid-base equilibrium, can hinder these reactions, particularly because of the changes’ impact on enzyme activity, which affects all chemical reactions taking place in the body. 

What you can do

To correct a faulty pH and thereby slow the production of acidic toxins, it’s important to manage stress effectively. This can be accomplished by using A.Vogel’s Vital Energy in conjunction with relaxation techniques. Good oxygenation through deep breathing techniques is also a very important means of slowing the production of toxic waste products.

A proper diet that includes whole foods and high-quality, raw fruits and vegetables will provide all the alkalinizing elements needed for good health.

To help the kidneys eliminate toxins effectively, it is also important to drink a lot of water and cleanse the liver properly (A.Vogel’s Boldocynara or Milk Thistle) at least twice a year.

Lastly and most importantly is rebalancing the intestinal pH using A.Vogel’s Molkosan.
