THE IMPORTANCE
OF YOUR BODY'S pH BALANCE


Our bodies live and die at the cellular level. The billions of cells in our bodies must maintain alkalinity, in order to function and stay alive. The first line of defense against disease is a proper pH balance. Disease can only grow in an acidic body, which makes a condition favorable for the growth of bacteria, yeast, fungus, mold, viruses, and any other unwanted organisms. Cancer always strikes those with an over-acidic body.

An acidic state causes a lack of oxygenation at the cellular level. When the pH level falls below 7.4, there is less than the maximum oxygen in the blood. Blood carries the maximum oxygen at pH 7.4 (alkaline). Without proper oxygenation, unfriendly bacteria, mold, and viruses will prosper.

When the human body is in an acidic state, it will try to shield itself from the damaging acid by storing the acid in fat cells. The body tries to prevent the acid from eating holes in tissues. When the acid level is high in the body, calcium is also depleted. Your body may make fat cells in order to store unwanted acid for its own protection. This process may save your vital organs from severe damage. By returning to a balanced pH level, you may lose unwanted fat cells.

Osteoporosis is an acidic problem. As the body becomes more acidic, calcium is depleted. The body will then leach calcium from bones, teeth, and tissue to make up for this loss. One of the first warning signs is calcium deposits in the body, which come from the calcium in our teeth and bones and not from nutritional calcium.

Most fruits and vegetables, including citrus, make your body alkaline. You need 8 servings of fresh fruit and vegetables to keep your body alkaline. Meat, dairy, and grains make your body acidic. I recommend that your food intake should be 75% alkaline foods.

Not only do foods make your body alkaline or acidic. Emotions such as anger, hate, sadness, despair, and loneliness also change your body chemistry to acidic. Happy emotions, such as love, make your body pH alkaline.

You can test your ph level by putting pH paper, which you buy at your local health food store, in your mouth and wetting it with your saliva. Then compare the color the paper turns with the given chart. The optimal pH level is between 7.2-7.4.

Homeopathy has changed my life! Thank you so much Sonja! When I first came to you, I had limiting behavior that would not even allow me to be in a committed relationship. Now, just 8 months later….I can happily say that I am in a wonderful, healthy relationship and headed down the aisle! I am amazed at how Homeopathy has healed me on a physical, emotional and spiritual level. I used to take at least 12 herbs a day. I felt as if they were "holding me together." Now, I take NOTHING and I feel better than ever! I will refer people to Homeopathy for everything! It is INDEED a cure all! Sonja, you are the best. You are so easy to talk to and made me feel so comfortable. I am eternally grateful! : )
