To detect signs of acidification of the body in time is to protect yourself from diseases.
The concept of "acidification" of the organism appeared only at the beginning of the XXI century. Until now, many doctors and nutritionists do not take into account this factor and are engaged in the "treatment" of a particular disease, and not its cause. In most cases, problems with a lack of calcium and other minerals in the bones and tissues of the body are observed due to elevated pH. Ideally, the organs should have a neutral or slightly alkaline environment, but for most people the pH is represented by an acidic medium ( acidosis ). That acidosis is the true cause of many ailments.
Do you know about the "acidification" of the body? And what exactly because of this phenomenon appear familiar and familiar diseases? Learn what acidification is, its signs and symptoms. Methods of prevention and treatment, also read the article.
Nail brittleness, damage to tooth enamel, rheumatism, joint problems, back and intervertebral disc problems, muscle pain, impaired blood circulation, frequent problems with the digestive tract, post-exercise cramps, constant fatigue, frequent headaches, infectious diseases, infections, dry skin, dull hair, baldness, cellulite, varicose veins, blood pH above 7.45 and even a heart attack, stroke and cancer - these are the consequences and warning signs of acidification of the body.
Ben Mones , hairstyle designer, art director and technologist at NIRVEL professional talks about the important medical aspects of body acidification and their effects on skin and hair.
Signs of acidification of the body - the starting point for serious diseases
Signs of acidification of the body:
- loss of muscle mass;
- fast fatiguability;
- frequent colds;
- skin diseases;
- low hemoglobin level;
If the above symptoms and / or diseases are familiar to you firsthand, but the cause of such problems is unknown to you, think about the acidification of the body. After all, many diseases begin with it.
Food "civilized man" leaves much to be desired. Indeed, finished products are very convenient, carbonated drinks and chocolate are very tasty; it's hard to believe that such goodies cause:
- damage to the tooth enamel;
- high blood pressure;
- varicose veins;
- cancer, etc.
In the meantime, illnesses are getting closer and faster to young people. Diseases are "getting younger", since few people pay attention to the first signs of acidification of the body (acidosis). Over the past 20 years, I have watched health disasters, which were the result of malnutrition. Why expose yourself to illness and premature death, if even at retirement age you can grow old with dignity and lead an active lifestyle?
You will not believe it, but studies show that only 3% of cancer victims die from this disease, the remaining 97%, unfortunately, become victims of ignorance or negligence.
Is it possible to detect signs of body coxileousness?
First, the signs of acidification of the body, described above, it is quite possible to notice on their own. At home, you can also check the level of acidification of the body, namely saliva, urine or feces.
To do this, you need to purchase indicator (litmus) paper (for example, a range from 5 to 9). By the way, the pH value of saliva does not vary as much as the pH of urine. It is better to measure the acidity every day so that you can calculate the average for the week later.
Test results for saliva pH:
Normal pH urine:
- Morning: 6.0–6.4;
- Evening: 6.4–7.0.
If the urine pH is below 5.0, this indicates dangerous acidification. It should be noted that the food consumed affects the pH value of urine - animal proteins increase acidity, plant food lowers it.
Daily urine pH should be slightly above 6.5. It is worth noting that a one-time measurement of urine pH is not indicative, so it is best to carry out such a test periodically for 3 weeks. The average pH of urine per week should be 6.2–6.8. This value should be maintained for 3 weeks.
To more accurately determine the degree of acidification of the body, it is necessary to analyze the blood, urine and saliva to shed light on the immunological (blood), digestive (saliva) processes and the excretion of acids from the body (urine).
Taking into account the results obtained, one can judge the risks of the current acidification of the body to health. The best thing in this matter will consult a doctor.
What is the acidity and alkalinity of liquids?
All liquids are classified according to the value of acid-base balance. It is measured in a pH value from 1 to 14. This value ranges from pH = 1 (acidic medium) to pH = 14 (alkaline medium). Depending on the proportions and the degree of dilution with aqueous neutral solutions (pH = 7), the value of the acid-base balance of the liquid may vary in one direction or another. pH = 1 is a very acidic medium (for example, 0.35% hydrochloric acid), pH = 7 is a neutral value (for example, drinking water), and pH = 14 is a very high alkalinity (for example, a concentrated soda solution).
What foods contribute to acidification?
Acidification of the body, the symptoms of which indicate a malfunction of the systems, appears due to malnutrition throughout life. Sweets and processed meats increase pH, increasing acidity. There is a processing of glucose with the release of nitrous acid residues. When processing fat, acetoacetic acid is formed. In order to neutralize excess acid, trace elements are needed, which are taken from bone and muscle tissue. You can not drink carbonated sugary drinks, they increase the acidity.
What leads to increased acidity and signs of acidification of the body?
"Excess" acids must be removed from the body or neutralized by its forces. Acids are excreted in the urine, feces, through exhalation and / or through the skin. If the body does not cope with their removal, harmful acid residues accumulate in it and lead to signs of acidification of the body.
If, after measuring the acidity level of urine and / or saliva, you notice that there is a threat of acidification of the body, exclude from your diet or limit the consumption of carbohydrates and animal proteins as much as possible. After that, monitor your pH values for another couple of weeks.
If at the same time you had certain health problems, the results of such a change in nutrition will simply amaze you! For an objective assessment of the result, you can start a journal and note weekly improvements in your condition, for example, using a 10-point scale.
Not always acidic foods contribute to acidification of the body. Lemon and tomatoes, despite the sour taste, alkalize the body and eliminate the causes of acidosis. With their help, you can neutralize excess acid.
Limit fat and meat intake. Replace them with fresh vegetables and fruits. Drink plenty of mineral water without gas or green tea. Useful herbal teas to reduce acidity. Eat vegetable and fruit juices, they are an excellent vitamin component of your diet.
Give up eating fast food and fatty foods. Fresh vegetables and fruits should make up 85-90% of your entire diet. At lunch, eat a large portion of cabbage, beet and onion salad. In the daily diet should be present carrots, beets, onions, garlic and greens. They can not be replaced by other vegetables.
Ideally, you need to give up sweet, at least for a month or two, and then use it in very moderate quantities.
