I am a total believer that you should listen to your body before going straight to medicine. So knowing your pH levels can help you feel better.
Why is your pH balance important?
It is important for the cells in our body to maintain alkalinity ( neutral) to function and stay alive. Consuming an alkaline diet, we allow our bodies the function properly without out having extra work trying to balance out our cellular environment to keep us alive. Disease can only grow in an acidic body, which makes a condition favorable for the growth of bacteria, yeast, fungus, mold, viruses, and any other unwanted organisms.
What is pH?
pH stands for power of hydrogen, which is a measurement of the hydrogen ion concentration in the body. The total pH scale ranges from 1 to 14, with 7 considered to be neutral. A pH less than 7 is said to be acidic and solutions with a pH greater than 7 are basic or alkaline. Our ideal pH is slightly alkaline – 7.30 to 7.45
As you can see what we’ve been hearing all along. Stay away from processed foods, foods high in sugar, simple carbs like white bread, & fatty meat. You should be eating..you guessed it fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, & proteins like beans.
