Why is pH important?
Acidosis is the perfect terrain for chronic, degenerative and auto-immune symptoms. In a healthy body the pH of the interior of the cells and of the interstitial fluids should be slightly alkaline. In alkalinity there is no dis-ease. When the pH of the bloodstream drops there is an immediate self-regulating mechanism that comes into play within your body. The body will go into the bones and teeth to leech alkalizing minerals like calcium and magnesium to buffer the blood and bring back the balance. The very large incidence of osteoporosis in this country is a direct result – in many of the cases – of acidosis in the body.
