Acidity vs Alkaline

As technicians at Microcell Sciences, we often see patients/clients that are more acidic rather than alkaline. The goal for a healthy body is to keep your body’s PH level as close to 7.4 as possible.

Our bodies and blood have a PH level of 7.35 to 7.45; slightly alkaline. It is a continuous fight for your body’s organs, tissue and fluids to try to neutralize acids in order to maintain the proper PH level.

Foods and stress play a huge role in altering the body’s PH. People are consuming too many acid forming foods, such as dairy, grains, meats, processed foods, sodas, coffees and sweets.

Having an acidic body over time can cause illnesses, as well as allow both yeast and bacteria to thrive. If the body is very acidic, over time the organs and bones will deplete the body of minerals along with calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium. If these essential nutrients run very low, it can cause damage that can go undetected for many years.

Common Symptoms of Acidity or Poor PH Balance:

  • Low energy, chronic fatigue
  • Weight gain
  • Inflamed sensitive gums, cavities
  • Bladder and kidney infections
  • Joint pain, aching muscles, lactic acid buildup
  • Acne
  • Allergies
  • Headaches, foggy brain
  • Heart arrhythmias
  • Free radical damage
  • We should be eating 75% alkaline foods and 25% acidic foods for every meal, to keep our bodies balanced. An easy way to accomplish this is to ensure you’re eating a high percentage of fruits and vegetables during each meal. Some citrus fruits have an acidic PH while outside the body, but when consumed, they leave an alkaline level in the body, once they have been metabolized. Try to incorporate yoga, meditation and massage into your life as well. Deep breathing can help rid your body of acidic carbon dioxide.
