Ok, I am on a mission to figure out what the heck is “pH”, what is so important about pH, and what do I need to do to “balance my pH”  (whatever that means)

Let’s start with a definition:
pH- Potential for freeing Hydrogen ions. If my body is too acid it will not carry enough oxygen. If it is too alkaline, the complete opposite will happen and I will be carrying too much oxygen.  A body’s pH should be 7, neutral or 7.35, slightly alkaline.

Having our cells constantly exposed to an acidic environment leads to Acidosis.

Symptom Overweight
It is known that acid gets stored in fat cells. As a defense mechanism, your body may actually produce fat cells to protect you from your overly acidic condition. To protect itself from potentially serious damage, the body creates these fat cells to store the acids and carry them away from vital organs. Those fat cells and cellulite deposits may actually keep acid wastes at a safe distance from your vital organs. Many people have found that a return to a healthy alkaline inner biological terrain helps them losing excess fat.
Symptom Low Energy and Chronic Fatigue:
When having our cells constantly exposed to an overly acidic environment our biological terrain’s oxygen level drops, leaving us tired and fatigued. This will allow parasites, fungus, bacteria, mold and viral infections to flourish and gain a hold throughout the body.

So, what can we do to balance our pH? -Resource

First, find out what is the pH in your body.  Purchase pH test strips.  You can hold these strips in your urine to measure the PH of your urine.  Check your urine every time you go to the bathroom, for at least two weeks.

Add alkaline foods into your diet and eat less acid food. Eat more raw green leafy vegetables and less food high in animal protein, sugar and grains.
