Obesity and Weight Gain is a pH Issue
WEIGHT GAIN IS AN ACIDOSIS PROBLEM
Strange as it may seem, many experts in this field believe that obesity is the body’s way of protecting itself from disease!
This makes a lot of sense to me. Think about it. Our bodies constantly need energy from food, and there is waste product from energy production, this waste product is acidic.
If our bodies don’t eliminate these acids through defecation, urination, perspiration, or respiration, this acid waste gets stored on our thighs, buttocks, breasts, and waistline, hence the weight gains.
It may be a good time to remind you of the danger of drinking any carbonated drinks, especially DIET drinks which may have the additional danger of containing Aspartame. They will in essence make you sick and fat!
The human body is very intelligent. As we become more and more acidic the body starts to set up defence mechanisms to keep the damaging acid from entering our vital organs.
It is known that acid gets stored in fat cells. After all, if the acid does come into contact with an organ, the acid has a chance to eat holes in the tissue. This may cause the cells to mutate.
The oxygen level drops in this acidic environment and calcium begins to be depleted. So, to prevent this your body may make fat to protect you from your overly acidic self.
Those fat cells and cellulite deposits may be packing up the acid and trying to keep it a safe distance from your organs. The fat may be saving your vital organs from damage.
Many people have found that a return to a healthy inner biological terrain helps them to lose excess weight.
ASSIMILATING NUTRIENTS AND MINERALS
It is not so much what we eat but what we assimilate, your body is able to assimilate minerals and nutrients properly only when its pH is balanced. It is therefore possible for you to be taking healthy nutrients and yet be unable to absorb or use them.
If you are not getting the results you expected from your nutritional programme, look for an acid/alkaline imbalance. Even the right program with vitamin supplementation etc may not work if your body is struggling with acidosis.
LIFESTYLE EATING AND ACIDOSIS
The reason acidosis is more common in our society is mostly due to the typical Western diet. It is far too low in alkaline-producing foods like fresh fruit and vegetables, and too high in acid-producing processed foods like bread, white flour, fast or junk food and acid-producing beverages like soft-drinks, which are being consumed by most of the population.
We use too many pharmaceutical drugs, which are acid-forming. The use of artificial chemical sweeteners in diet drinks is extremely acid forming.
The best things we can do to correct an overly-acid body is to clean up the diet and lifestyle.
Acidosis forces the body to borrow minerals, including calcium, sodium, potassium, and magnesium, from vital organs and bones to buffer (neutralise) the acid and safely remove it from the body.
