Why should we be concerned about pH levels?
Since most of the body is water-based (50-60%), the pH level has profound effects on all body chemistry, health and disease. All regulatory mechanisms (including breathing, circulation, digestion, hormonal production) serve the purpose of balancing pH, by removing caustic metabolized acid residues from body tissues without damaging living cells.

If the pH deviates too far to the acid side or too far to the alkaline side, cells become poisoned by their own toxic waste and die. Just as acid rain can destroy a forest and alkaline wastes can pollute a lake; an imbalanced pH corrodes all body tissue, slowly eating into the 60,000 miles of veins and arteries like corrosives eating into marble. If left unchecked, an imbalanced pH will interrupt all cellular activities and functions, from the beating of your heart to the neural firing of your brain.

With modern foods, it really is not easy to obtain an alkaline diet, in fact if one followed correct practice; one would be labeled a fanatic or even a nerd!.

Some skeptics say alkaline water and diet can’t change the ph of your cells, that your body automatically adjusts the ph balance, but what is not mentioned is it takes a lot of work for the body to maintain an alkaline ph, especially when it is in a diseased, acidic state. The water and alkaline diet takes the stress off those systems, so the body is freed up to heal itself.

Are you overly acidic?
We are forcing our bodies to work with less than optimal inner terrain. This creates a fertile breeding ground for various forms of chronic illness that are now experienced by more than half the population. When the pH of the body gets out of balance (too acidic), we may experience low energy, fatigue, excess weight, poor digestion, aches and pains, and even more serious disorders.

Ideally, what you eat should be 80% alkaline and 20% acidic foods. But in practice the reverse is true. Drinking alkaline water and eating alkaline foods every day helps your body to get rid of acid waste inside your body, returns your body to a healthy pH balance and ultimately helps you to lose weight and ward of disease. Regardless of how much you work out and try to eat right, if you can’t balance the acids in your body, you’ll never feel as good as you’d like to be.

What is Acidosis?
Acidosis is the basic foundation of all disease. We need to understand the simple process of alkalizing our body and the important role a properly alkalized body plays in restoring and maintaining our overall health. Our glands and organs function properly in exact proportion to the amount of alkaline and acid levels in our system. Listed below is the impact of acidosis on your organs:
