How Do You Keep Your pH Balance?

Aug 17, 2007
PH balance, simply put, is the balance of acid and alkaline in all fluids and cells in the body. Blood pH balance is recognized as one of the most important biochemical balances in human chemistry.

Body balance is critical to maintaining wellness and preventing illness. According to many practitioners of alternative medicine, if body pH balance is not in equilibrium it will create an environment where disease can thrive. Yet, as crucial as it is to optimum health, few medical practitioners in Western medicine are even aware of how it plays a major role in causing almost all disease.

The foundation of keeping a healthy balance is in drinking plenty of alkaline water. Seaweed is a great supplement for restoring your pH balance as it contains a mixture of red, brown and green marine algae.

If you suspect your body is out of order, and most of the Western world falls in that category, it is important to consider a change in lifestyle and nutrition. It cannot be stressed enough that eating highly nutritious foods and ensuring that your body absorbs all the appropriate minerals is vital to your well-being.

Realizing the importance of pH balance to good health and an overall disease free body is the first step to good health. Then, discovering how relatively easy it is to achieve it with proper nutrition, it will give you a whole new perspective on life. No more fear of sickness or pain. That's what will be in your future! You will know when your pH balance is corrected as you will have more energy and vitality.

Consider this: would you rather be like an ostrich and think that sickness will not happen to you, until the day that you get a grave medical diagnosis? It is easy to check your alkalinity with a saliva litmus test. You can get the tester at your local pharmacy. The human body's ideal pH balance is around 7.

Medicine does not cure; it simply treats symptoms. In the case of cancer, it will attempt to kill malignant cells. Proper nutrition, on the other hand, may not only keep you from those dreaded diseases but fortify cells that are out of kilter.

Although the concept of pH balance may be novel to you and somewhat confusing, it is actually fairly simple. Let's take skin for example. After every washing, your skin is completely distorted and starts working overtime to restore pH levels; a process which may take up to half an hour.

In conclusion, since your ideal alkalinity is maintained through the proper nutrition the body needs, it is most crucial to consider taking the steps you can to help avoid cancer and disease. pH balance is indeed foundational to experiencing a higher quality of health, and thus a higher quality of life.
