Every organ in the body is affected by level of acidity. Our lungs, bones, brain, heart, liver, kidneys, stomach, intestines and skin. Bottom line– if your body is too acidic, then you’re not going to be feeling that fantastic.
When our bodies go into a state of acidosis, it becomes the best breeding place where illness and disease can easily manifest. A body that preserves its alkaline set-point will have less persistent inflammation– one of the top triggers of pretty much any illness.
After a lifetime of consuming a Basic American Diet plan (SAD), the body stays in a constant state of level of acidity. When the body remains in a chronic acidic state, valuable minerals are eliminated from important organs and bones to reduce the effects of the acid and remove it from the body.
This is why we are seeing an up-rise in osteoporosis– your bones are literally being leached of the valuable minerals had to safeguard them (like calcium, salt, magnesium, and potassium). As soon as these mineral reserves are totally diminished, there are no more reserves to bring into play, and the body just continues to run more and more acidic– and this is when major illness (like cancer) begins to show up.
