2 Things You Can Do to Correct a Deadly Unbalanced pH Level
Do you know your pH level? If not, you should! Here’s why…
When acid and alkaline are out of balance within the body, the body is more susceptible to disease. In order to maintain good health, our pH level ought to be a little above 7 on the scale, which runs from 0 to 14.
The letters “pH” stands for Potential of Hydrogen, and refers to the measure of the body’s acid/alkaline balance. On the pH scale, 0 is completely acidic and 14 is completely alkaline.
Our bodies ought to be slightly alkaline, which will allow us to prevent disease and maintain our health. Too much acid in our system can wreck incredible havoc and lead to all types of illness, including cancer!
Here are 7 deadly effects of an unbalanced PH level…
* The immune system declines
* Free radical damage is heightened
* The body’s ability to absorb nutrients declines
* Disrupted sleep patterns become more frequent
* Susceptibility to bacteria and viruses are increased
* Mental clarity decreases
* Physical energy is depleted
Our bodies should be slightly alkaline… right around 7.25 - 7.50 on the pH scale. A reading below 7 is acidic, whereas a reading above 7 is alkaline.
If you find that you’re out of balance, or that you’re more acidic than what you need to be, don’t be alarmed. Here are two things you can do to correct a deadly unbalanced pH level…
1. You can control your pH level by the foods you eat!
All foods have an effect on the human body’s acid/alkaline level. Our diet should consist of about 60% alkaline forming foods and about 40% acid forming foods.
Alkaline forming foods include fruits, vegetables, beans, lentils, spices, herbs, seeds, and nuts. Acid forming foods include red meat, chicken, turkey, fish, eggs, and grains.
2. You can control your pH level by staying in control of stress!
Yes, stress plays has a huge impact on your pH level. In fact, stress has a huge impact on many functions of the body. Any thing you can do to keep stress at bay is critical to your overall health and well-being.
Be sure to engage in activities you enjoy on a regular basis and get adequate exercise.
Everyone should monitor their pH balance regularly. Some professionals recommend doing it once every three months, some recommend every six months.
Checking you pH level is easy. All you need to do is go to your local drug store and buy some pH paper. Place the pH paper in contact with your saliva. The paper will then turn colors.
Immediately compare the paper’s color to the color code provided on the pH dispenser. That’s all there is to it.
To get the best reading of the state your health is in, it’s recommended that you check and record your pH level three times a day… once in the morning, once in the afternoon, and again once in the evening, for 30 days. Also, try to record your level at the same times every day.
Again, when acid and alkaline are out of balance within the body, the body is more susceptible to disease. Keep check on your pH level regularly in order to prevent disease and maintain your health.
