Acids build up in the body. A few contributing sources include processed foods, environmental pollution, chemical cleaners and cosmetics, polluted water, pesticides, and stress.
An overload of acids in the body will act as a poison to it.
Definition: (from Random House Unabridged Dictionary)
“Poison: 1. a substance with an inherent property that tends to destroy life or impair health. 2. something harmful or pernicious, as to happiness or well-being.”
“Pernicious: 1. causing insidious harm or ruin; ruinous; injurious; hurtful: pernicious teachings; a pernicious lie. 2. deadly; fatal: a pernicious disease.”
The body stores acid poisons in fat cells. This is what the body does in order to keep the acid poisons out of vital organs.
The body tends to hang on to the fat to keep the acid poisons from doing more damage in other areas of the body.
When the body can’t store the acid poisons in the fat cells, they are stored in vital organs and/or excreted through the skin causing skin eruptions or rashes.
The body uses a balancing mechanism to ensure high levels of acid poisons do not circulate in the blood stream. You can monitor the acid level by having a pH test done. (pH, meaning potential of hydrogen, refers to a scale showing how acid or alkaline something is, the more acid, the more hydrogen, the more alkaline, more oxygen is present).
The blood of the body needs to be a pH of 7.365 which is slightly alkaline, and the rest of the body works to ensure this happens. A professional healthcare provider can monitor the blood pH to predict and control health issues.
When the blood remains between 7.3 and 7.4 on a consistent basis, the body has the ability to adjust to a normal healthy state which includes ideal weight. The monitoring of pH to predict and control health issues is not widely practiced here in the United States.
You can monitor your blood pH by testing the pH of your urine and saliva. There is a certain protocol to follow and it is a good alternative to testing the blood pH.
When you get the urine and saliva pH to read 7.0 on a consistent basis your body will be able to readjust to it’s appropriate or natural weight. Your cravings will change. Your life will change… for the better.
Your body will be working against any weight loss program which is not geared to move the pH of internal systems into the appropriate balance. Detoxifying your body or ridding your body of these acid poisons is a major factor in weight loss.
