17 Signs Your Body Is Too Acidic And 9 Ways To Quick­ly Alka­lize It

The more acidic your body, the hard­er it becomes for your immune sys­tem to fight off ill­ness, bac­te­ria and even can­cer.
How Does The Body Become Acidic?

It usu­al­ly starts with unhealthy habits. Smok­ing, lack of sleep, stress and most impor­tant­ly the foods you eat can all affect your body’s pH levels.Whenever you eat acid form­ing foods, such as dairy, grains, meats and sug­ar, your body has to use alka­liz­ing min­er­als such as cal­ci­um, sodi­um, potas­si­um and mag­ne­sium to neu­tral­ize the acid pro­duced from metab­o­liz­ing these foods.
When you don’t eat enough alka­line foods to replen­ish these, your body has to use min­er­als from vital organs and bones to neu­tral­ize the acid in your body.
Because of this, your body’s min­er­al reserves can reach dan­ger­ous­ly low lev­els and cause dam­age that can go unde­tect­ed for years.
You Con­stant­ly Need Alka­liz­ing Min­er­als
The body’s metab­o­lism is con­stant­ly pro­duc­ing acidic waste prod­ucts that needs to be neu­tral­ized or excret­ed in some way. In order to do that, you need to sup­ply your body with foods rich in alka­liz­ing min­er­als.
This is why eat­ing more junk food than veg­gies can cre­ate an extreme­ly acidic envi­ron­ment which is prime breed­ing ground for all sorts of neg­a­tive health issues.
Health Prob­lems Caused by Mild Aci­do­sis
The Ari­zona Res­pi­ra­to­ry Cen­ter at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Ari­zona found strong evi­dence which shows aci­do­sis induced by diet does indeed pro­mote the growth of malig­nant cells and tumors. Here are few oth­er neg­a­tive health con­di­tions asso­ci­at­ed with mild aci­do­sis:

Bal­anc­ing pH Lev­els
The body is an amaz­ing machine and can autonomous­ly bal­ance its own pH lev­el; how­ev­er, it does so at a heavy cost.
For instance, when the body becomes too acidic, the blood will take alka­line-form­ing ele­ments from the diges­tive enzyme sys­tems of the small intes­tine. (source) This now cre­ates a less than opti­mal envi­ron­ment for prop­er diges­tion.
This is why dietary intake that is high­ly acidic can result in many dis­ease and dis­or­ders. The body steals from one area to bal­ance the pH which inhibits that sys­tems prop­er func­tion.
Test Your Body’s Acid­i­ty or Alka­lin­i­ty with pH Strips:
It is rec­om­mend­ed that you test your pH lev­els to deter­mine if your body’s pH needs imme­di­ate atten­tion. By using pH test strips, you can deter­mine your pH fac­tor quick­ly and eas­i­ly in the pri­va­cy of your own home.
If your uri­nary pH fluc­tu­ates between 6.0 to 6.5 in the morn­ing and between 6.5 and 7.0 in the evening, your body is func­tion­ing with­in a healthy range.If your sali­va stays between 6.5 and 7.5 all day, your body is func­tion­ing with­in a healthy range. The best time to test your pH is about one hour before a meal and two hours after a meal. Test your pH two days a week.
Note: The pH read­ing you get when you test your urine or sali­va is NOT the pH of your inter­nal envi­ron­ment, it is the pH of these flu­ids that your body is elim­i­nat­ing. Nev­er­the­less the pH of the liq­uids which your body is elim­i­nat­ing is a use­ful indi­ca­tor of what is going on with­in your inter­nal envi­ron­ment includ­ing the sta­tus of your alka­line reserves.

Which Foods Are Alka­line?
It is impor­tant to under­stand a few things about the dif­fer­ence between acidic and alka­line foods.
It can be a bit con­fus­ing at first. For instance, cit­ric foods such as lemons and oranges are acidic in nature, but they are alka­line form­ing with­in the body.
Here’s a gen­er­al list of foods to eat and avoid:
How To Improve Your Body’s pH Lev­el
Check your pH reg­u­lar­ly­Drink plen­ty of water­Re­move acidic food­sUse let­tuce leaves and col­lard greens as wrap­sAvoid junk food or high­ly processed food­sRe­place dairy milks with coconut or almond milkA­dd green juices or smooth­ies to your dietEx­er­ciseMed­i­tate to low­er stress lev­els.
Your Food Mat­ters
There’s no doubt about it, what you eat has a direct impact on your over­all health.
As Ann Wig­more, founder of the renowned Hip­pocrates Health Insti­tute once said, “The food you eat can be either be the safest and most pow­er­ful form of med­i­cine or the slow­est form of poi­son.”
