Health And pH Levels
Have you ever considered what personal health and pH levels may have in common?
If you’re feeling off your game, that’s not great.
If your experiencing constipation beyond a few days, also not great.
Add eating poorly (fast food, packaged food, processes meats) and not exercising, and your pH level could be wack.
And this may explain a lot about the way you feel.
An over the counter pH test can make it easy to find out how bad or good your levels are.
That in turn can let you know if you need to improve, or if you’re doing things right.
How to reverse a toxic body
If however you’re already toxic, full of old waste, never going to the bathroom, for days, not exercising, you’re probably bad off.
Therefore, you could consider a colonic, rinsing older waste out, and then begin eating better and restoring you gut health.
If you’re totally full of crap it might be best to just get it out.
Clearing out old waste and improving your diet with alkaline foods may be a great first step.
But of coarse for any serious issues one should speak with their doctor.
What is the right pH level
According to doctors, the right pH levels are needed for good health.
The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14.
The readings are based around a pH of 7, which is neutral, like pure water.
For most people the ideal diet is 75 percent alkalizing and 25 percent acidifying.
Scientists have discovered that the body fluids of healthy people are alkaline (high pH) whereas the body fluids of sick people are acidic (low pH).
Balancing the pH is a major step towards well-being and greater health.
A constant state of acidity can lead to heart disease, a stroke, cancer, skin disorders, auto-immune conditions, allergies and the list goes on.
What are alkaline foods
Alkaline foods are greens, like kale, swiss chard, spinach, mint, parsley and arugula, and acidic foods are over-processed and packaged foods.
When the body is overburdened with acidic foods, the colon can become toxic.
Suddenly you may not be sleeping well, your skin may appear dull, your gut bloated, and your brain foggy.
These are signs that things are not quite right, and it could be helpful to test your pH.
PH markers can let you know a lot about the condition of your body.
That said, food can affect ph balance, and a simple, inexpensive, over-the-counter test can reveal your state.
Or you can ask your doctor to test your pH with blood on your next yearly physical.
