Acid-base Balance - Body pH Balance

Acid-base Balance - Body pH Balance
To study the fluids of the body, there is a unit of measurement. The symbol pH stands for power of hydrogen. It measures the acidity or
alkalinity of a solution.
The normal stability between acids and alkalis is known as acid-base balance.Where 7.0 is considered neutral (neither alkaline nor acid),
the normal acid-base of bodys fluid varies between 7.35 and 7.45.
The blood is slightly alkaline.
The foods we eat are either acidic or alkaline. Unfortunately, most diets consist of foods that tend to be too acidic. Processed food, sugar,
meat, coffee, dairy, and refined grains are acid-forming foods. Eating highly acidic foods on a daily basis will acidify the fluids of the body.
With time, if these acids are not neutralized and eliminated, a medical condition known as acidosis will occur.Degenerative disease such as
cancer, osteoporosis, heart disease, prostatitis, inflammatory bowel disease, and M.S sets in.
To maintain acid-base pH balance, the body uses three mechanisms: the buffer system in the blood, and the regulatory activities of the
respiratory and renal system. The kidneys play an important role in the regulation of the pH level. It is through the urine that the kidneys
excrete excess acid and alkali.
With a simple urine test, we can determine if the pH level of the bodys fluid is too acidic or too alkaline. On a scale of 0 to 14, in which 7.0
is considered neutral, urines pH value can be measured with a pH strip. A pH value below 7.0, where the indicator paper turns yellow, is
considered acidic. A pH value above 7.0, where the indicator paper turns green, indicates that the bodys fluid is alkaline.
If the result shows that the bodys chemistry is too acidic, follow an alkaline regime. Avoid the consumption of acidic foods. Consume plenty
of vegetables, especially salads, whole grains, nuts, and seeds.
