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!
