body’s regulatory mechanisms work to maintain the internal acid/alkaline
balance. We do not tolerate acid over load, the first signs of which are; head
aches, acid reflux, allergies, IBS, indigestion and sinus problems. If the
imbalances get greater then more serious conditions start effecting our organs,
thyroid gland, adrenals, liver and so on. Eventually cancer, heart disease and
diabetes take hold. These 3 western killers develop from an acidic state.
declining pH just can’t be allowed. To stop this the blood begins to take alkaline
minerals from the body tissues. There is a family of minerals particularly
suited to neutralising strong acids these include sodium, potassium, and
magnesium. When these minerals react with acids they create a much less harmful
substance, which the body can eliminate.
healthy body maintains a reserve supply of these alkaline mineral to meet
emergency demands. However if there are insufficient amounts in the diet they
are recruited elsewhere. For instance calcium will be drawn from the bones to
neutralize too much acid.
you ever wondered why there is such a huge increase in osteoporosis? People
that eat a typical western diet tend to become acidic and lack alkaline
how can you help boost your reserves of alkaline minerals so that your body
doesn’t leech them from within?
The easy way is by eating them.
