If you want to stay healthy and make your body fight against and prevent many different diseases, you should keep your body healthy. However, as most of us know, many factors can impact that and can make it more acidic. Processed foods, artificial sweeteners, all kind of chemicals, stress, environmental factors, and many other factors can cause that.
The problem is pretty serious because it can lead to more health issues like digestive problems, fatigue, weight gain, and even cancer. Therefore, if you don’t balance your acidic levels in the body on time, it could influence the healthy cells and make them “toxic”. With the time, these “toxic” cells can mutate and convert them into cancerous cells. The pH scale goes from 0 (acidic) to 14 (alkaline), so we can say that 7 is neutral. The human body is created to thrive in a slightly alkaline environment of 7,45. But I should mention that this is not the same for all organs and tissues. For example, the pH of the digestive tract can vary from 1 to 4, which can be influenced by various factors, but mostly from the food we eat.
The pH of the saliva is lower, in order to help the digestion of food. The pH ranged from 6,5 to 7. On the other hand, the pH of the skin is around 5, but according to a 2006 study published in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science, scientists have found that the pH value of the skin should be 5 to 4,5. So, these days most of us are aware that the food we consume can significantly determine our overall pH levels and in that way, our health condition.
In 1931, Dr. Otto Warburg found the truth that made him get the Noble Prize in Medicine. He discovered that around 90 to 95 percent of all cancer types develop as the result of an acidic environment in the human body. Also, Dr. Otto Warburg discovered that cancer cells cannot thrive in an alkaline environment.
Almost a century ago, it was found the connection between acidosis and the formation and growth of cancer. But, there is also a connection with almost every chronic disease nowadays like heart disease, osteoporosis, and diabetes.
So, this is why it’s extremely crucial to recognize when your body is acidic. One of the easiest tests to check your pH value is to do a saliva test using a regular pH paper. If, you don’t have pH paper, you can discover it by knowing the following symptoms.
– Chronic fatigue
– Frequent shortness of breath
– Muscle pain or cramps
When your pH levels drop, your body is trying to regulate in naturally to create homeostasis. The body do this by holding and storing some of these acidic substances in the organs like the liver, kidneys, lungs, and is using some of its essential minerals in order, to regulate the pH. This will maintain the pH level at an optimal value between 7,35 to 7,45. If this issue is not solved, these acidic compounds will start to store in the healthy cells and make them toxic, sick, damaged, and, eventually, they will start growing without control and become malignant.
In order, to maintain and keep your health, you can make some changes in your diet.
Also, you can benefit from a detox made by consuming this alkaline water.
Alkaline water recipe
– One tablespoon of Himalayan Pink Salt

First, you need to pour the water in a glass jar, cut the lemons on slices, and add it inside the water. At last, add the Himalayan pink salt. Close the glass jar and leave it on room temperature to sit 12 to 24 hours.
How to use it
For best results, drink this alkaline water first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. You should drink at least 3 glasses daily, on an empty stomach.
