If your body is acidic, probably the reason for that are the high levels of acid in your body fluids.
In order to prevent harming the body you need to keep the levels of acids at a specific range.
These are the optimal pH levels of the body fluids:
Saliva pH = 7.0 – 7.5
Blood pH = 7.35 – 7.45
Urine pH = 4.6 – 8.0
If some of these levels is lower, it is indication that your body is acidic.
Doctors say that a lot of people don’t check their pH levels because they are not even informed about that.
Below you can read about several ways to regulate the alkaline balance at your body.
If your body is not alkalized, the waste product gets trapped inside your organism and that furthermore will lead to forming excess waste. This also will cause body acidity, and the organs which are responsible for flushing toxins, your kidneys, colon, skin and lymph system will become overworked and will not be able to remove the built up acid from the organism. Namely, the acidity gets attached to your fat cells and actually sticks in your body, making you gain even more weight.
If there is too much acidity, although your body puts an effort to remain alkalized, all of the important minerals are wasted from the organs and tissues in order to keep the organism active. This eventually will lead to brittle bone structure. Calcium is one of those minerals that is withdrawn from the bones. Moreover, this condition may lead to osteopenia or osteoporosis.
Human teeth actually are bone structure, same as other bones in the body. If your body is acidic, the calcium gets withdrawn from your teeth which suffer from this mineral’s deficiency.
Body acidity makes your body significantly more prone to viruses, fungi and bacteria. Namely, these microorganisms develop in acidic conditions. Most commonly they build up inside the digestive tract, gums and other tissues and organs.
These microorganisms will weaken your immunity and thus exhaust the body. Your body will try to make up for lost energy and will lose important nutrients. Furthermore this will harm the enzymes and hormones and will cause body irregularities, most often fatigue.
If there is acidity in the organism, it will result in toxins build up, which immensely will harm the skin.
In addition to that, this will impair the blood flow and the skin will not be able to get rid of toxins through sweating, as it normally does. Rashes, acne, eczema and allergies are skin diseases that occur as result of this condition.
When it comes to eliminating toxins through the nose, mucus inside the body has this task. If your organism is acidic, the nasal passage it will not be able to throw out the mucus, that remained trapped inside the body.
In such situation, medical assistance is necessary; otherwise, the lungs will become overflown with mucus and the breathing process will be interrupted. The results of this condition are coughing, chest pain, sinus issues, wheezing and respiratory problems.
Constricted muscles are caused by high levels of body acidity, or in other words, the oxygen cannot be transferred through the blood vessels properly. As a result of that, the muscles lack oxygen and furthermore this leads to pain and soreness. This also may cause fatigue, which is clear sign of elevated body acidity.
If you are dealing with tiredness, exhaustion and insomnia, there are high chances that your pH levels are low. Calcium deficiency causes feeling of constant exhaustion, which leads to tiredness.
