Are you tired of your jewelry turning black, brown and grey after you wear it? This annoying condition is actually quite easy to remedy, it just means your body has too much acidity. Most people are not aware of how incredibly important to our health our body’s pH is.
The acidity of your blood is measured by determining its pH value. According to the American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC) the pH of your blood should be around 7.4, which is slightly alkaline. The condition of Acidosis is characterized by a pH of 7.35 or lower and Alkalosis is characterized by a pH level of 7.45 or higher. While seemingly slight, these numerical differences can be detrimental to ones health.
What is Acidosis?
Acidosis is the over-acidification of the body’s cells, this condition can interrupt cellular activities and functions. It’s the root of many ailments and diseases. The body’s cells constantly being exposed to an acidic environment can lead to chronic acidosis which can then lead to dreadful diseases such as cancer.
Acidosis forces the body to constantly deplete its cellular energy to neutralize and detoxify these acids before they can act as poisons in and around the cells.
Many studies have shown that being acidic can lead to cell starvation which creates an anaerobic (lack of oxygen) body environment which in turn encourages the proliferation of fungus, mold, bacteria, and viruses. As a result, our biological terrain shifts from a perfect healthy oxygenated, slight alkaline environment to an unhealthy acidic one (acidic pH scale).
Symptoms of Acidosis
Symptoms of raised body acidity in the body & brain can include:
– Memory loss
– Sleep disturbance
– Personality change
– Muscle jerking
What Causes Acidosis?
Conditions like diabetes, kidney failure can contribute to body acidosis, but in reality is boils down to diet. The typical western diet of nutritionally deficient processed foods, smoking and alcohol abuse are some of the main causes of excessive acid in the body.
OK so lets talk solutions, there are many simple routes you can take to remedy excess body acidity, and no you don’t need to go vegan or gluten free or follow the nutty torturous alkaline diet. All you need to do is one of these three:
1# daily drink natural alkaline water, not ionized water. See my article on the Benefits of Drinking Alkaline Water
2# take a teaspoon of Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar twice a day. See my article on the Health Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar
3# detox your liver with milk thistle. See my article on Detoxing your Liver
One of my friends skin was so acidic that she would destroy her bracelets and rings within weeks of wearing them. I told her she was to acidic, and suggested that she drink 2 teaspoons of Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar a day. Within a week she stopped tarnishing her jewelry, and now she can freely wear bracelets and rings without destroying them.
Good luck on your journey back to health!
