In case you weren’t aware of this, our bodies live, but also die at a cellular level. Our bodies contain numerous different cells that have to work well so that they can keep the state of the body alkaline. That keeps us alive. We’ll be able to fight any illness or disease if we have a healthy pH balance. Diseases and illnesses are known to live in an acidic environment that can also create the best conditions for yeast, viruses, bacteria, fungus and mold to live in.
When at the cellular level we lack oxygenation, the state of our body becomes acidic. The normal pH for our body is 7.4. Anything below that means that we have less oxygen which causes the appearance of mold, viruses and different bacteria.
An acidic state of our body causes it to store acid in our fat cells so that it can protect itself from the damaging acid. In case of too high levels of acid, we start to lose calcium. Then, some of the most vital organs suffer. If we manage to balance our levels of pH, we can prevent that damage and lose the dangerous fat cells.
When our body is in an acidic state, it starts to borrow calcium and other important minerals from its vital organs. This is what causes the appearance of osteoporosis as well as arthritis.
A study performed for 7 years on the University of California which included almost 9,000 participants with developed chronic acidosis, it was confirmed that the people with healthy levels of pH didn’t have such an increased risk for bone loss when they were compared with these people.
It was also discovered that hip fractures which appear in middle-aged women often appear because of the diet they had which was low in vegetables and high in animal products. That was the main reason for increased acidity.
Dr. William Lee Cowden claims that immune cells which are too acidic or too alkaline don’t produce that are too acid or too alkaline do not produce cytokines or antibodies. Their phagocytosis which helps them destroy microbes is disturbed. That’s why you become susceptible to fungal, viral, bacterial and other types of infection and unfortunately, cancer.
This shows us that it’s very important to alkalize our body. We’ll also manage to regenerate our bone health and boost our immunity. You can even test your pH levels by yourself. Put a piece of pH paper in your mouth and wet it with your saliva. Compare the color you’ll get with the chart you’re given.
In today’s article, we’re also going to present you a very delicious recipe that will help you alkalize your body and protect you from various illnesses and diseases.

Many fruits are considered to be alkaline-forming especially the citrus fruits. You can keep your body alkaline with about 8 portions of fresh vegetables and fruits. Be careful with meat, dairy and grains as they can make your body acidic. Experts are the ones to claim that your intake of foods should be composed of 75% of alkaline foods.
