The balance of acid and alkaline states in the body is an essential factor in the maintenance of good health. The PH factor indicates the acidity and alkalinity of the body. The acid-alkaline state is crucial to determine disease states and plays a vital role in body chemistry. It is this balance that affects whether or not we are healthy. Distilled water is considered neutral. Normal PH values is 7.0. Any value below this indicates acidity and values above 7.0 indicates alkalinity. Average value for our saliva and urine are 6.0 to 6.8. This shows that our body is slightly acidic. If the PH factor falls below 6.0 it implies that the body has become too acidic and above 6.8 shows it has become too alkaline. Both these states are undesirable in maintenance of good health. One can test the saliva and urine to determine your PH levels. Obvious signs of too much acidity are indigestion, heart-burn, headaches, nervous disorders, and when it gets worse (more acidic)—pain in the pharynx, drowsiness, excessive hunger etc. This stage of acidosis is a breeding ground for most diseases, low immunity, high blood pressure, skin diseases, frequent cough, cold & fever, rheumatism, and premature … Continue reading PH Factor – the key to good health →

Many experts now see inflammation as arising from an immune system response that’s out of control. When you catch a cold or sprain your ankle, your immune system switches into gear. Infection or injury trigger a chain of events called the inflammatory cascade. The familiar signs of normal inflammation — heat, pain, redness, and swelling — are the first signals that your immune system is being called into action. In a delicate balance of give-and-take, inflammation begins when pro-inflammatory hormones in your body call out for your white blood cells to come and clear out infection and damaged tissue. These agents are matched by equally powerful, closely related anti-inflammatory compounds, which move in once the threat is neutralized to begin the healing process. Our bodies weren’t designed for a daily barrage of toxins, infectious agents and stress, seen and unseen. This kind of demand requires a lot of support to maintain your immune’s system resilience. Our go-go lifestyle just doesn’t make room unless we pay attention to everything: what we breathe, eat, drink and absorb and feel.
