The Relationship of Acidosis to Unwellness

Author Jennifer    Category Fitness     Tags , , , ,

When illness enters our lives it is often because of acidosis. A healthy body is a bit alkaline.  When we become ill our entire body becomes toxic.


Most ailments are caused by too much of an intake of refined flour products, animal proteins and dairy products. Taking in too much of these things can cause a condition called acidosis.  Smoking and drinking too much alcohol can als0 cause our bodies to become too acidic and less alkaline?


If you are in a state of acidosis it means that the body’s pH balance has been thrown out of balance and needs correcting (to become more alkaline) by eliminating poisons and taking in healthy things.  Acidic people do not want to exercise. They feel tired and achy all of the time.


A state of acidosis leads to problems such as congestion, inflammation, and eventually degenerative changes that can lead to fatal illnesses. Correcting this acidic condition halts the progress of disease and aging.

In order to correct this condition you need to eat foods that are less acidic. These are called alkaline foods. Many people who incorporate them into the diet will experience some sort of detoxification process. Usually these symptoms are mild and do not cause much discomfort. Diarrhea and cold like symptoms might be present for a day or two while the body discharges toxins.



Detoxification starts with depriving our bodies of their usual intake of poisons from water, air and food and replacing those toxins with fresh juices and foods.  Switching over from an unhealthy diet full of acidic is not easy for some people however it is necessary if you want to feel better


People recovering from long illnesses are often very acidic because the drugs they take to treat it make them so. It can take a while for somebody to restore the pH balance of the body.


When you eat a healthier diet, quit smoking, exercise, meditate, and drink less than your brain receives more blood and oxygen.

You also think more clearly, have more energy, need less sleep. Your brain may actually grow more brain cells. In fact if you eat a diet that supports your blood’s pH balance your brain can actually get bigger in only three months.


Your face will glow and your circulation will improve so that you show less wrinkles. This can make you look younger and feel younger so you feel more like exercising!


Watch for Cheap Green Tea Supplements

If you are going to buy a green tea weight loss supplement make sure that you are willing to invest in buying a quality product. The bottom line is that the cheap green tea weight loss supplements simply do not work.

If you buy a cheap green tea supplement it might be cut with all kinds of binders, fillers and even supplemental weight loss ingredients that are supposed to “burn fat.” A common addition to these supplements is extra caffeine which gives you the jitters and causes you to lose all of your water weight.  You know you are looking at a green tea supplement that may not be so good for you if it includes gluten, corn protein, wheat proton, yeast, soy or soy protein, dairy products, artificial colors, preservatives or sweeteners. Green tea supplements cut with turmeric or hoodoo may also be of a very low quality.

Many green tea supplements are also made with lower quality tea leaves. This is because the better quality ones are sold to tea companies. In fact, rather than buy a cheap green tea supplement you might be better off to just drink green tea because the leaves might be stronger.

To make sure you are purchasing green tea weight loss supplements that are going to be effective you need to purchase ones that are made with the green tea extract. Supplements both in liquid and pill form that contain green tea extract ten to contain more EBCG which is the active component in the tea that actually triggers fat loss.  The cheap pills are just ground up green tea leaves.

Yet another problem with the cheap green tea pills is that the dosage is usually off what it says it is on the bottle. If it is not regulated then you cannot regulate or count on your weight loss. The extract is simply much easier to regulate and more potent.

Furthermore there are a lot of benefits to taking the extract. It improves insulin sensitive and prevents you from craving sugars and sweets. It can also help improve the function of your thyroid and metabolism. Green tea diet pills made from extract can also help suppress your appetite which of course prevents you from eating too much junk food. The fact that it is also can prevent breast cancer, colon cancer and prostrate cancer only adds to the attractiveness of consuming this tea leaf.

Finally, you are living in a fantasy world if you think you can buy cheap green tea supplements and not exercise or eat right to get the weight off.  Taking a pill is not going to cure a lifetime of eating junk food or lying on the couch watching television. There is no green tea supplement, low or high quality, that substitutes for eating right and expending calories every day. However the health benefits of green tea are well documented and your weight loss will be accelerated if you take a high quality pill or liquid made from the extract.
