Eating ACIDIC Foods
Drinking Carbonated Beverages
Drinking Low PH Liquids
Being in a Toxic Environment
If our diet consists of mostly meat, bread, fried foods, coffee, sweets and carbonated beverages which all have a PH below 5 or 6, (Carbonated beverages are around a PH of 2) this will lower our Salvia and Urine PH to under 6 or even under 5. This can make us a breeding ground for detrimental conditions such as: Heart Disease, Arteriosclerosis, High Blood Pressure, Diabetes, Arthritis, Gout, Kidney Disease, Chronic Diarrhea and Constipation, Hemorrhoids, Asthma, Hay Fever, Allergies, Headaches, Psoriasis, Eczema, Gas, Osteoporosis, etc.
Besides these obvious conditions it has come to the attention to many researchers that an overly Acidic (low PH) environment opens us up to the possibility of Cancer along with many other non-communicable diseases. As Sang Whang writes: “The growth of Cancer cells is a fermentation process which can be initiated only in the relative absence of oxygen”, or in other words an acid environment.
Obesity is one of the most common results ofAcidosis or low PH, why? As Robert Young writes, “The body retains fat as a protection against the overproduction of acids produced by the typical American Diet. Fat is used by the body to store the excess fat. Ask any Plastic Surgeon: The fat the liposuction from their patients is brown and black because of all the Acids it contains”. So that persistent and annoying fat on our hips, thighs and around our bellies is actually part of a larger survival mechanism. Quite simply, the more Acidicyour lifestyle becomes, more fat must be utilized to keep you alive. Your fat is actually saving your life. But who wants all that fat hanging around, lets change things so you body has no need for it!
