Did you know that there is a link between body pH and many diseases? Our body requires a slightly alkaline condition to function well. Unfortunately, mostly due to the typical American diet, our bodies are predominantly acidic. The truth is, in our society, it is always much easier to become acidic than to become alkaline. Acidity forces the body to borrow minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, and sodium from vital organs and bones to neutralize the acid and get rid of it from the body. This is the beginning of osteoporosis and arthritis. A seven-year study, performed on 9,000 women at the University of California, found that those who have chronic acidosis are at greater risk for bone loss than those who have normal pH levels. Many of the hip fractures among middle-aged women are connected to high acidity, caused by a diet rich in animal foods and low in vegetables. – American Journal of Clinical Nutrition
Additionally, 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.”
The restoration of the health-promoting alkaline state is vital to the regeneration of bone health, immune health, and overall well-being.
