The ratio of acid and alkali in the body is called pH or potential of hydrogen. With proper proportions of acids and alkalis the pH of the blood should be slightly alkaline — 7,365. Any deviation from this range causes the appearance of adverse symptoms and diseases. In a big way —a symptom of the alkaline environment that is less acidic. The acid content in the blood affect a variety of factors, including food and a healthy ability of our bodies to remove carbon dioxide from the body. Achieving pH balance is quite a complex process, but a healthy habits help to regulate it.
When "acidification" of the body cells are deprived of oxygen and other nutrients. The body tries to compensate for acidic pH by using alkaline minerals. When the diet does not contain enough minerals to such compensation, the accumulation of acids in the adipose and other tissues of the body. If they accumulate, for example, in the knees, it causes arthritis, but if in the liver, can cause fatty liver.
Acidic imbalance reduces the production of energy in cells and prevents the recovery of damaged cells. Increased acidity interferes with the detoxification of heavy metals, stimulates the growth of tumors. In addition, the imbalance of acids and alkalis makes the body more susceptible to fatigue and illness can cause various ailments and health problems, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes and bone fragility.
Symptoms of acid-base imbalance can manifest as problems with excess weight and diseases such as allergies, arthritis, acne, fungal infections.
Cause of acid base balance in the body — acidosis — can be stress, toxic load, immune reaction, but often the wrong food. Also of great importance is the amount of daily fluid intake and physical activity: too intense workout, as lack of movement, leads to the oxidation, since the lymphatic system does not work in full force, and it is responsible for excretion of acids and toxins from the body.
Unfortunately, most of the products that comprise the typical diet of Western man, acidification body: bakery products, sugar and sugar substitutes, coffee, alcohol, dairy products, meat, sodas, processed foods, even medications.
Many believe that the best way to restore the acid balance is to follow a proper diet combined with a healthy lifestyle. However, according to some specialists, this may not be enough. Michael Dudenhefer, founder of G-Care GmbH, says: "Since the organisms of most people are too oxidized, transition to a more alkaline diet in fact, because acid deposition is thus not eliminated. The best version is the cleansing and regeneration of the whole organism, only then will you be able to come into balance. Being in balance involves the accumulation in the body alkaline reserves in the form of minerals, etc. They only work if first of all to eliminate high acidity".

However alkalizing diet that includes plenty of vegetables and greens, in some cases, it may help to gradually balance the pH level in the body. This diet will allow you to boost your energy, improve skin, reduce allergies and enhance mental clarity. When it reaches the correct acid-alkaline balance, the body instinctively strives for an ideal healthy weight. The thing is that as soon as the acidic environment is eliminated, there is no need in the formation of new fat cells and the remaining in the body fat no longer needed to store acidic wastes, and so he just burned.
Diet healthy person should contain 80% of salaciously foods and 20% acid foods. To restore the broken health, the proportion in the diet needs to change, bringing the amount of "alkaline" foods to 100% for a period of two to three weeks.
To "alkaline" foods include most vegetables, greens, peas, beans, lentils, spices, herbs and seasonings.
Please note that oxidizing and alkalizing effects of foods on the body has nothing to do with the actual pH of the food. For example, lemons are very acidic, however the end products they produce after digestion and assimilation, rich with alkali. Thus, although it might seem that citrus fruits have an acidifying effect on the body, the citric acid they contain actually has an alkalinizing effect.
Meat, on the contrary, contains a lot of alkali, however, after the process of digestion in the body is very acidic residue. That is why almost all of the products of animal origin oxidize the body.
One of the simplest, in my opinion, ways to reduce acidity is to drink water with lemon or lime. Every day I start with one to two cups of water. Several times I heard about the ability of baking soda to oxalacetate the body. She really can do it, but it has few side effects. First, as a rule, the baking soda contains aluminum. The amount is very small, however, it can accumulate in the body. Some studies have demonstrated a high likelihood of developing Alzheimer's and Parkinson's due to the use of aluminium for many years. When aluminum enters the human body, to get rid of him is almost impossible. Secondly, an overdose of baking soda can cause problems with acidity in the body. So I'd think twice before using soda in this format.
