Regaining Your pH Balance

The problems caused by acidification should not be treated individually, but as a whole. Because acidification of the internal environment is responsible for so many different symptoms and illnesses, the most effective treatment for these conditions is to reduce or eliminate acidification. This is the surest way to regain ph balance and make all the problems that imbalance has caused disappear.

The treatment plan to counter acidification aims first to reduce the amount of acids the body takes in. This is an indispensable step; as long as large quantities of acids are entering the body, all other measures have only a temporary palliative effect. Diet is adjusted so that alkaline foods and drinks predominate over acid foods. Dietary reform is a simple step, but its effect is considerable. Improved oxidation of acids is obtained by introducing or increasing physical activity (exercise). Eliminating the acids already present in the tissues is accelerated by consuming medicinal plants that increase the flow of urine (diuretics) and those that enhance the production of sweat.

An additional measure, which has proven to be indispensable in the majority of cases, is to take alkaline mineral supplements, not only to help the body eliminate the acids ingested during the day but also, and more importantly, to facilitate elimination of the acids lodged in the deep tissues of the body. This is a fundamental step, because the body is extremely reluctant to take acids embedded in the tissues back into the bloodstream where they can be transported to the lungs, kidneys, and skin for elimination. The return of acids to the blood carries a serious risk of dangerously altering its pH. To protect the blood, the body tends to let these acids remain in the tissues. However, a significant introduction of alkaline elements into the body allows the acids to be eliminated, for these alkaline substances act as a buffer and let the acids make their way back to the surface in the form of neutral salts. In this form they can cause no harm to the blood pH.

The various measures that can be taken to deacidify the body's internal environment cause all the acids embedded in the deep tissue to gradually resurface and be eliminated. Over time this cleansing leads to a profound deacidification of the body, which not only treats the sufferer but protects him or her from any reoccurrence of the problems.
