In the video below you`ll get an idea of how having an acidic body can have a negative impact on are lives.
Body pH: The Dangers of an Acidic Body
When you hear the term pH, you probably think about a chemistry lab rather than your body. But pH doesn’t just pertain to people in lab coats with test tubes: it actually has a direct effect on your health as well.
What is Body pH?
pH, in general, is the measurement of acid and base, which is measured on a scale of 1 (acid) to 14 (base). Almost every physical thing has a pH, from oranges (3.3) to soap (9). Neutral pH is 7. Body pH refers to the pH of a person’s blood. Averages typically range from 7.35-7.45.
Acidic Body Symptoms
Unfortunately, many people today suffer from acidic body, meaning their blood measures too low on the pH scale. This can cause a myriad of different problems, the worst of which is death. However, more common symptoms include:
- Weight Gain: Since acid is stored in fat cells, some believe that the body attempts to control excess acid content by creating more fat cells to absorb the acid.
- Acid reflux
“Naturally, the acidity of one’s body is determined by what you put in it ,mainly your diet.”
A surprising number and variety of physical problems and diseases can be caused by acidity. Today, the vast majority of the populatation in industrialized nations suffer from problems caused by acidification, because both modern lifestyle and diet promote acidification
Below are a list of systems caused by an Acidic Body:
- Symptom Allergies
The toxins produced within an acidic, oxygen deprived environment as well as the absorption of undigested proteins is major cause of allergy conditions. When the digestive system is weakened, a wide range of allergic reactions can occur, e.g. food allergies, and the overall susceptibility to allergens is increased.
- Symptom Joint Pain and Arthritis
All substances left by the metabolizing process are acidic and toxic; therefore these have to be neutralized by alkalizing elements, e.g. calcium ions, sodium ions, and lithium ions, among which calcium is the most important. Calcium ions are positively charged ions which are constantly looking for acid, to form calcium carbonate in our body. Calcium carbonate is harmless and will be moved out of the body, providing our body fluid pH is alkaline. Otherwise, it is being deposited around body joints. If the calcium ion level is low in the blood and body, excess acid will remain in our body and will lead to numerous health problems, like Join Pain or Arthritis.
- Symptom Osteoporosis
Many people think they can eliminate osteoporosis by increasing their consumption of milk and dairy products. But in fact the instances of osteoporosis are rare in countries where the consumption of dairy products is very low. So osteoporosis is an acidosis problem. As the body becomes more acidic, our body tries to remain healthy to protect us against heart attacks, illness, strokes or even cancer. In doing so, it takes calcium from the teeth, bones and tissues, making them weak and brittle.
- Symptom Low Energy and Chronic Fatigue
When having our cells constantly exposed to an overly acidic environment our biological terrain’s oxygen level drops, leaving us tired and fatigued. This will allow parasites, fungus, bacteria, mold and viral infections to flourish and gain a hold throughout the body.

- Symptom Heart attack
If our internal biological terrain is exposed to excessive acidity, bacteria and/or fungi and/or viruses can attach themselves to the inner walls of arteries. This can attract white blood cells, causing proteins and cells to clot. In this way a plaque forms in the artery, thus narrowing the artery and restricting the flow of blood, nutrients and oxygen to the tissues supplied by that artery. Should that happen to the coronary artery, a heart attack can occur.
- Symptom Acne
There are many different forms of acne, and not few are linked to an unhealthy diet. Especially foods that are highly acidic tend to cause acne.
- Symptom Frequent Colds, Bronchitis, Infections, Headaches
Only when our pH level is fairly balanced, the binding of oxygen to the hemoglobin protein of our red blood cells in the lungs operates. If the pH is too acidic, microbes in our respiratory systems can grow much more easily, and in that way cause bronchitis, pneumonia and sinusitis, and invade our cell system. This can result in cough, bronchial spasms (asthma), colds, infections and headaches.
