The Importance of Alkalinity to Health
The unfriendly bacteria
and fungi that populate our intestinal tracts thrive in an acid environment
and are responsible for secreting mycotoxins, which are the root cause of
many debilitating human conditions. In fact, many researchers believe that
most diseases can be linked to blood and intestinal acidity, which
contributes to an acid-based yeast and fungus dominance.
The symptoms of excess
internal acidity include:
aches and pains
resistance to illness
Irritability / mood swings
/ vaginal itch
pH for human blood is between 7.4 and 7.6. Preserving this alkalinity (pH
balance) is the bedrock on which sound health and strong bodies are built.
When the blood loses its alkalinity and starts to become more acidic, the
foundation of health is undermined. This creates an environment where we
become vulnerable to disease. When our bodies are overwhelmed by large
quantities of toxins, our health becomes impaired and we become susceptible
to disease and illness.
balancing the body’s pH and creating a more alkaline environment, you can
rein in the microbial overgrowth and choke off the production of
disease-producing mycotoxins. With pH balance restored, the body can regain
newfound vigor and health.
How to Restore Alkalinity - Read about
The Essential Oil Desk Reference and:
Carefully monitor your diet.
Avoid the use of antibiotics.
Use essential oils.
Use alkaline salts.
Boost friendly flora.
Using an acidophilus or
bifidus supplement, such as
Royaldophilus, may be especially
valuable in boosting levels of naturally occurring beneficial bacteria in
the body. They also help the body maintain proper pH balance for nutrient
digestion and absorption. Ideally, the lactobacillus acidophilus and
bifidobacterium bifidus cultures must be combined with plantain to promote
implantation on the intestinal wall.
Testing Your Own pH
easily test your pH at home by purchasing small litmus-paper strips at your
drug store or pharmacy. To get the most accurate reading, expose the strip
to a sample of your saliva immediately after awakening in the morning and
before eating breakfast. Color changes on the litmus paper will determine
pH; check the instructions of your kit for specific details on how to read
the litmus paper.
