Not many people know that there is a link between our body pH and a lot of diseases. We need a slightly alkaline condition to make our body function properly. But because of the typical American diet, we are predominantly acidic.
The reality is that we have more chances to become acidic than to become alkaline. When our body is acidic that it has the need to borrow minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium and sodium from other vital organs and bones in order to neutralize the acid and get rid of it from the body. This process leads to the occurring of osteoporosis and arthritis.
One study was performed for 7 years on 9.000 women at the University of California and showed that those who have chronic acidosis are at greater risk for some bone loss than those who have normal pH levels. We all know that almost every middle-aged women experiences hip fracture and these are connected to high acidity which is caused by a diet rich in animal foods and low in vegetables.
According to Dr. William Lee Cowden:
“Immune cells that are too acid or too alkaline do not produce antibodies or cytokines (chemical messengers to regulate other immune cells), and they have impaired phagocytosis (the ability to engulf and destroy microbes). As a result, the affected individual becomes susceptible to viral, bacterial, fungal and other infectious microbes as well as cancer.”
It is vital to the regeneration of bone health, immune health and overall well-being to promote the best alkaline state to our body.
