What happens if my body is acidic?
Your body can become acidic from stress, toxins as well as the types of food we eat.
It’s called oxidative stress and when really serious it’s called acidosis.
If that sounds a bit too much like high school chemistry then just imagine a game of musical chairs. If there are not enough chairs (Antioxidants) for the number of people (Free Radicals), then people will fight over the chairs and try to steal chairs from each other. If the number of chairs matches the number of people everything remains calm. If there are more chairs than people then all is well. So imagine the people are the free radicals and the chairs are antioxidants. If you don’t eat enough antioxidants then free radicals start stealing electrons from healthy cells. They damage the cell wall and when the cell wall is damaged they start stealing electrons from all the molecules inside your cells including the DNA, which can cause a serious health issues.
How do I know if I’m acid or alkaline?
The balance of minerals in your body can determine how acid or alkaline we are. When we don’t have enough easily accessible alkalising minerals we start to suffer health issues. There’s good science that shows how our acid-alkaline balance and in particular our magnesium deficiency impacts diabetes, heart disease, depression, migraines, cancer and pain. Our acid forming western diet, combined with our exposure to toxic chemicals and our high levels of stress, may actually be the underlying cause of most chronic disease.
When the body is too acidic it can causes inflammation, connective tissue weakness, pain, and potentially adrenal fatigue, Alzheimer’s and osteoporosis. World renowned research scientist and mineral expert, Professor Jurgen Vormann and naturopath, Peter Ochsenham have recently uncovered the most misunderstood and underestimated health issues of our time – latent acidity.
These doctors have discovered that using alkaline mineral electrolytes to correct latent acidity can bring about dramatic changes in metabolic health.
Symptoms of Acid Load may include:
