Why You Should Maintain Your Body pH (Evidences From Photographs)
Why over-acidity (acidosis) is bad for your health? The acidity condition interferes mineral absorption, weakens immune system and circulation system, and thus leading to all sickness and disease including premature aging, obesity, heart attack, and cancer.
To maintain optimum health, your blood pH should ideally by 7.365 (= 7.4). This slightly alkaline pH level ensures microorganisms remain in harmony with the body while enhancing your body to function optimally. When healthy, the pH of spinal fluid and saliva is at 7.4. Half of the adults are found to have a pH of 6.5 or lower which indicates the calcium deficiency of aging and lifestyle defects. Cancer patients normally have their pH measured at 4.5, reflecting acidified body.
Why over-acidity (acidosis) is bad for your health? Cancer, heart disease, arthritis, osteoporosis, gall and kidney stones and other degenerative diseases are an obvious indication of excess acidity in your body. The acidity condition interferes mineral absorption (calcium and iodine for example, are hardly being absorbed under a relatively acidic body), weakens immune system and circulation system, and thus leading to all sickness and disease including premature aging, obesity, heart attack, and cancer. When your body is over acidic, it becomes an ideal place for cancerous cells to grow (cancer cannot exist in an alkaline environment), your teeth and bones will be corroded or dissolved by the acidic substances in your body. The acidic body also becomes a bleeding ground for fungus, viruses and germs; these “aliens” will soon consume what you eat or drink and finally leaving you more acid waste excrements! In the worst cases, they will coagulate blood and finally get your capillaries clogged up.
Acidosis is a condition that will lead you to illness and it’s a result expressed via changes in your blood cells and plasma. Let’s have a look at healthy blood cells (left photo) and unhealthy blood cells (right photo). As you can see, the red blood cells in healthy blood are perfectly separated, repelling each other due to being negatively charged. Now, let me show you how acidosis has altered the individual’s healthy blood into a state of unhealthy, toxins, and damaged cells. Take a closer look on each of them.
The left photo shows you a dried layer of blood of a healthy individual while the right photo shows you a dried layer of blood of an unhealthy individual who has cancer. The healthy blood portrays a clear fabrin network (or the black interconnecting lines), which is fibrinogen that describes one of the protein constituents of the blood. As you can see from the left photo, red blood cells are shown in the red-in between the black lines, but the right photo shows you that the blood cells fails to coagulate completely but has many white areas (polymerized protein puddles) due to the oxidative stress. The unhealthy blood cells here explain to you its degradation of the body’s extra cellular matrix from free radical activity which might contribute to the progress of other chronic diseases.
These unhealthy blood cells are thought to be due to liver disease, bile insufficiency, increased cholesterol, lipids and lecithin content. The left photo clearly shows its 3 dimensional profile.
Photos show you platelets. The healthy platelets are neither square nor quite circular, appear in their typical color of very dark to black which can range in size from 2 to 4 microns. However, these descriptions are not the cases that you see in the photos. The increase of platelet count called thrombocytosis is dangerous to your health as it causes increased blood clot incidences, capillary blockage and poor circulation. The platelet excess is also a description of diseases such as chronic infection, cancer and certain blood toxicity or/ and diseases. It might be an indication of platelet deficit, in which a condition called thrombocytopenia occurs, or more exactly platelet count deceases in your blood. Typically, it appears more common in people either with excessive platelet destruction due to immune response or transfusion reaction, or a result of decreased platelet production due to chemotherapy and bone tumor. Excessive red meat, stress, chocolate, caffeine and stress, as well as extremely high triglycerides are some of its contributing causes.
This photo indicates an excess dietary protein, poor assimilation, and often a case of poor protein digestion or might be due to an excess intake of animal protein. It might be an indication of the damage of pancreas, blood too toxic due to dehydration, cigarettes, excess intake of coffee, stress, anger, not drinking enough water and etc. These unhealthy blood conditions are particularly detrimental to patients suffering from occlusive vascular diseases since they can impair the blood flow in the small vessels (in which the red blood cells undergo gaseous exchange between carbon dioxide and oxygen). These unhealthy bloods can also be observed in some diseases states including diabetes, myocardial infarction, multiple myeloma, arthritis, and those who have an excess intake of alcohol.
This photo shows you unhealthy blood cells that appear in hair-like, straight, and toothpick-like formations in its middle. They might be caused by toxicity (antibiotic, tobacco, cigarette, meat, drug and etc.), congestion, liver stress, bacterial overgrown particularly caused by bowel toxicity along with old, decaying and impacted feces. People with these blood states are always experiencing fatigue, headache, heartburn, bloating, autoimmune disease, indigestion, constipation, and backache.
Excess acidity forces your body to withdraw minerals from the bones, soft tissues, body fluids and saliva via a process called homeostatic mechanism to buffer/ neutralize the acid in order to remove it from your body. Your body then creates fatty deposits or cholesterol to store deadly crystallised acid substances away from vital organs such as heart, liver and kidney. Over time, the pH of these tissues or organs will fluctuate greatly, in which your body is more likely to become more acidic than alkaline. Therefore, replenish your body with an adequate amount of alkaline water is a must.
As your pH of saliva tells you the overall pH balance in your body, you can monitor your health progress in terms of acid/alkaline balance by testing your saliva pH. Don’t worry if your saliva is too acid. Just follow my recommendations here:
Increase the intake of alkaline foods, with 80% alkaline foods and the rest for acidic foods. Minimise the “strongly acidic foods” (such as meat, eggs, fish, sea foods, hard cheese) and “mild acidic foods” (such as milk, yogurt, legumes, nuts, grains, soft curds), but increase “strongly alkaline foods” that are rich in potassium, magnesium, and “mild alkaline foods” such as leafy vegetables, berries and fruits.
The meat based foods and soft drinks should be reduced in your diet as they are regarded as acidic foods. Its acidity is due to the sulphur found in the concentrated protein of hard cheese, fish, meat, and the phosphorous in soft drinks and meat. Plant-based foods and drinks (such as coffee, juices of fruits and vegetables, herbal teas, tea, cocoa and etc.) are regarded as mild alkaline foods, and thus they should be included in your diet.
If your body is too acidic, then you should think of ideal ways to neutralize it by adopting alkaline diet for at least 3 consecutive months to eliminate or neutralize toxins and acids in your blood, tissues, muscles, organs, and lymph, while enhancing your blood circulation, and immune system. Try considering some of the recommended food choices here:
