Regulate Your Body pH To Restore & Maintain Prime Health
A healthy person’s blood pH level should be slightly alkaline (in the range of pH 7.35 – pH 7.45). However, most people today have an acidic blood level due to pollution, poor eating habits, stress and lack of exercise. This acidity adds to the stress of the organs involved in blood circulation and cleansing, such as the liver, heart, kidneys, spleen, pancreas, etc. As a result of this stress, many organs start to deteriorate, which may lead to health conditions, diseases and ailments such as fatigue, body aches and cardiovascular diseases that could develop into chronic diseases or even cancer.
An acidic body is primarily caused by a diet high in meat or refined carbohydrates. The lack of dietary fibre leads to the accumulation of animal fats, resulting in hardening of the blood vessels and stress on the organs. Once weakened, the body is susceptible to disease.
The Crucial Influence of pH Level on Health
The advantages of blood alkalinity
Blood that is slightly alkaline flows much smoother in the body. This efficient circulation allows greater amount of oxygen and nutrients to be transported and absorbed by the body. This helps to raise the metabolic rate, increase cell vitality, and improve overall energy. Slightly alkaline blood not only prevents arteries from hardening, but also reduces the amount of deposited fat on the arterial walls. This free blood flow helps reduce the potential for and symptoms of many cardiovascular diseases.
Slight alkalinity is a sign of good health; it indicates that the body’s immune system i.e. natural resistance and healing capacity, is in good condition, and able to resist the onset of many diseases.
The disadvantages of body acidity
Acidic blood has a higher viscosity. This prevents smooth blood flow, leading to poor oxygen transfer. The poor flow rate also leads to the hardening of blood vessels.
Are you plagued by an acidic body?
Answer the following questions to find out for yourself!
If you have 5 or more of the listed symptoms, then there is a high chance that your body is acidic.
|•||Move or perform tasks at a very slow pace. (You have the will but not the strength to perform tasks.)|
|•||Feel sleepy when you ride in a car or drive|
|•||Feel tired after mild exercise. Short of breath (panting) when walking up or down the stairs|
|•||Suffer from poor memory and concentration|
|•||Experience coldness in the limbs|
|•||Bruise easily, experience frequent skin breakouts, or bleeding gums|
|•||Prone to eczema|
|•||Have dull complexion or acne|
|•||Suffer from athlete’s foot|
|•||Tend to suffer infections (pus) on wounds|
|•||Suffer a protruding abdomen even though overall average in size.|
|•||Easily put on weight / Difficulty controlling body weight|
|•||Suffer from constipation or frequent diarrhoea|
|•||Have bad breath|
|•||Frequently suffer from tinnitus|
|•||Frequently feel dizzy, feeling very tired especially in the afternoons|
|•||Have weak immune system; prone to flu and fever|
|•||Frequently bitten by mosquitoes / insects|
Lifestyle and diet
If you check 5 or more boxes, your lifestyle and diet could be contributing to an acidic body.
|•||Frequent all-nighters or late nights (sleep after 1am)|
|•||Frequently eat supper, or have dinner after 8pm|
|•||Frequently skip breakfast|
|•||Drink alcoholic beverages (beer, wine, whisky, etc.)|
|•||Drink more than 3 cups of coffee daily|
|•||Drink carbonated beverages daily|
|•||Frequently consume meat|
|•||Eat very little fruits and vegetables|
|•||Drink less than 2000ml of water each day, or drink water that is acidic (distilled water, RO water)|
|•||Like to eat processed food, fried food or sweet snacks|
|•||Lack physical exercise|
|•||Live or work under constant pressure , and usually find it difficult to de-stress|
|•||Constantly in a polluted environment (surrounded by second hand cigarette smoke, waste gas from factories, etc.)|
Do not be “ambushed” by acid
Humans are born with a body that is slightly alkaline, but on average, our bodies tend to become acidic after the age of 25. This is due to ageing, environmental and food pollution, poor diet, stress, unhealthy, sedentary lifestyle, overworking, etc. Acidity can be the cause of many diseases because it impedes normal enzyme functions. In a study carried out by the University of Tokyo, up to 90% out of the 600 cancer patients surveyed have an acidic body, of which, 85% have pH levels of 5.8 and below. “Immune cells” are adversely affected by acidity and may succumb to cellular poisoning or death if exposed to it for prolonged periods. With the immune cells severely depleted or damaged, virus and other disease-causing agents can wreak havoc in the body. Approximately 40 million members of Japan’s various “golden years” clubs are actively promoting vinegar as one of the best products for reducing fatigue, and returning the body to its normal alkaline pH level. These Japanese in their golden years drink large amounts of “vinegar” during meals to improve overall bodily functions and revitalise the organs. It is no coincidence that the Japanese have the highest human life expectancy in the world!
The best way to overcome an acidic body is to consume more alkaline food and beverages.
|•||Most vegetables, garlic, mushrooms, onion, wheatgrass, etc.|
|•||Algae: chlorophyta, spirulina, seaweed, etc.|
|•||Most fruits: apple, banana, lemon, grape, orange, watermelon, pineapple, Japanese plum, strawberry, etc.|
|•||Sprouts like alfalfa…|
|•||Almost all meat products: beef, chicken, pork, duck|
|•||Almost all seafood: fish, oyster, prawns, etc.|
|•||Most grains & beans: flour, bread, corn, plain rice, noodles, pasta, biscuit, wheat, barley, etc.|
|•||Dairy products: butter, milk, cheese, cake, etc.|
|•||Almost all oil and fats, including corn oil and olive oil|
|•||Others: coffee, carbonated drinks, refined sugar, alcoholic drinks, medicine, food tainted with pesticides and insecticides, canned or pickled foods|
If you regularly consume food that is high in calories and mainly consists of fat and protein, have inadequate physical exercise and high stress levels at work, you are likely to have a sluggish citric acid cycle and a huge accumulation of lactic acid in the blood stream.
You are also highly susceptible to obesity, muscle aches, high blood pressure, diabetes, and other chronic diseases. You might have to rely on medication if you do not start adjusting your diet, exercise, and lifestyle soon. However, you can easily bring your health back on the right track by improving your citric acid cycle with the introduction of natural acetic acid (vinegar) into your diet.
Vinegar – Your Personal Firewall Against Diseases
1. Eliminates fatigue & reduces muscle aches
Lactic acid tends to accumulate in the body after strenuous exercises or from consuming too much meat. This build up of lactic acid causes tiredness, fatigue, stiff shoulders, natalgia / sore lower back, inflammation of the joints and shoulders, sciatic nerve pain / pelvic pain, neuralgia / aching nerves, knee neuralgia / sore knees, shoulder neuralgia / spinal aches, etc. Lactic acid also causes poor blood circulation, resulting in blood acidity, which is one of the main causes of neuralgia. Lactic acid combines with protein to form lactic protein, which causes shoulder soreness and neuralgia / lower back pain, as well as arterial hardening if it is allowed to accumulate in the blood.
2. Transforms an acidic body
All patients suffering from chronic diseases and cancer have an acidic body, which is also the case for those who consume a large amount of meat in their diet. This is probably why people who consume large amounts of meat are more prone to cancer. The risk of disease is reduced when we reduce acidity in the body. Vinegar might taste sour (acidic) but it becomes alkaline once it enters the body, and taking it frequently will make the blood slightly alkaline which is the body’s healthy and natural state.
3. Revitalises cells, supports blood flow
The poly amino acids in vinegar cause red blood cells to be more flexible and able to pass smoothly through narrow capillaries to transport oxygen to all parts of the body, aiding cell revitalization. Smooth blood flow can help prevent high blood pressure, heart diseases and stroke. It also alleviates edema and varicose veins that are caused by poor blood circulation.
4. Cleanses blood, prevents arthritic pain
Clean blood is slightly alkaline and lower in viscosity. When we consume a lot of meat, our blood and body fluids become acidic and more waste products are produced during metabolism and energy output. This increase in waste matter puts additional stress on the kidneys and can lead to uremia in serious cases. Arthritic pains happen when there is too much uric acid in the blood stream; the waste increase in the blood also leads to higher blood viscosity which can result in hardened arteries. V inegar helps maintain a healthy alkaline level by preventing uric acid build up and body fluid acidification. It also promotes the excretion of deposited uric acid, reduces the burden on kidneys, prevents gout and solves each kind of fearful cardiovascular disease.
5. Relieves gastrointestinal discomforts
Nowadays, people often suffer from autonomic nerve abnormalities due to extreme pressure. Autonomic nerve abnormality results in an over production of gastric acid which lead to intestinal mucosal membrane injury, stomach wall hemorrhage, and gastric and duodenal ulcers. Acetic acid (also found in vinegar) is mildly alkaline so taking acetic acid can neutralize strong acids and alleviate ulcers caused by excessive gastric juice.
In times of low gastric acid production, the acetic acid in vinegar can play the role of gastric acid and help in the digestion and absorption of food. At the same time, its antibacterial properties promote the healing of the affected areas.
6. Facilitates calcium absorption
The smell, taste and composition of vinegar can stimulate alimentary organs / digestive system and enhance digestion and absorption of nutrients in food. Vinegar also improves the breakdown of food into its nutritious components for easy absorption by the body. For example, calcium and vinegar can combine into calcium acetate that is easily absorbed by the body. In this way, vinegar helps the body absorb more calcium. The citric acid in vinegar enters the body and promotes the full utilisation of calcium by the body; the results are stronger bones, less mood swings, and a better night’s sleep.
7. Fights obesity
8. Eases constipation
Vinegar improves metabolism and promotes the excretion of waste from the body. It also supports intestinal elasticity and the production of carbonic acid that facilitates bowel movement. Some people who consume highly concentrated vinegar are even known to excrete oil from their body during bowel movement, and this phenomenon can be attributed to the ability of vinegar to break down fats.
9. Beautifies the skin and improves complexion
Lipid peroxidation refers to the oxidative degradation of lipids. It is the process whereby free radicals “steal” electrons from the lipids in cell membranes, resulting in cell damage and causing signs of ageing . Vinegar helps prevent lipid peroxidation, promote skin metabolism and prevent the production of brown spots, keeping skin fair, young, and healthy.
In short, vinegar can alleviate a host of skin conditions including dermatitis, brown spots, acne , eczema, etc . by improving metabolism, blood circulation, and fat metabolism in the skin.
10. Prevents diabetes
The number of diabetic patients is rising in many countries all over the world. The major reasons for this are an imbalanced diet, insufficient exercise as well as poor lifestyle habits and increasing stress at work.
Sugar, protein and fat that our body absorbs are burned to produce energy. Insulin is needed for the absorption of glucose (converted from sugar) into cells. However, when there is insufficient insulin, this glucose remains in the blood stream instead of being absorbed into cells and is then excreted from the body via urine, causing excessive sweet urine (glycosuria) or diabetes mellitus.
Consuming large amounts of vinegar (acetic acid) on a regular basis can increase the activity of acetic acid in the body. This enhances the citric acid cycle and converts glucose into energy for full utilisation by cells. In this way, vinegar helps solve diabetic problems caused by incomplete glucose metabolism in the body.
11. Prevents cold & flu
The best way to prevent a cold or flu is by strengthening the body’s immune system. The abundance of vitamins found in vinegar can help prevent cold and flu and reduce fatigue. Vitamin A is closely related to the formation of glycoprotein which helps moisten the mucous membrane and prevent the invasion of filterable viruses. Vinegar’s preventive powers are enhanced when taken in conjunction with a diet high in yellow-green vegetables. Vinegar is also rich in Vitamin C that is good for suppressing the flu virus and the spread of infection. The Vitamin B1 in vinegar reduces fatigue, fights cold and flu and maintains optimal bodily functions.
12. Reduces hangovers
As vinegar can accelerate the citric acid cycle, taking concentrated vinegar before and after drinking alcohol helps prevent drunkenness and cure hangovers. The consumed alcohol is rapidly broken down in the citric acid cycle, relieving your liver from the stress of breaking down alcohol.
“Vinegar” – the master of pH balancing – Sir Hans Adolf Krebs (Dr. Krebs), awarded the Nobel Prize in 1953 and 1964, proved that the modern man’s diet contains too much animal fat, protein, and high calorie foods that can lead to an acidic body.
To combat the problem, “pH balancing” has become one of the most important daily tasks for healthy living. The basic principle of good health is to keep the pH level of the body slightly alkaline (between pH 7.35 and pH 7.45), so the body is best able to fend off disease.
Vinegar is one of the food products that can rapidly improve the blood acid level. In just 2 hours, it can bring your body back to a healthy alkaline level, possibly saving your life!

Please take a few minutes to check out the above links. If there is one thing you can “take away” from this series that should be how much we are affected by toxins.
Remember that Natural Superfoods are your friends. They have the ability to help you detoxify your body and improve your quality of life.
Next time I’ll take a closer look at damaging free radicals and how anti-oxidants can help us.
The Acid /Alkaline Imbalance
We are alkaline creatures who require slightly alkaline blood pH of 7.35 to 7.45 to allow correct oxygenation of our blood so the body’s vital processes can function properly. A reading above or below this range means our body is under stress, leading to illness, disease or worse.
Normal blood pH has a very small window of acid/alkaline pH balance.
How does an acidic pH occur? From the foods we eat, (poor diet and acidic food), water, stress, intake of toxins, poor immune system. An acidic balance decreases the body’s ability to absorb nutrients and decreases the body’s ability to detoxify, leading to an impaired immune system. Plus your reserves of minerals will be depleted as your body tries to compensate for an acidic pH by using up your reserves of alkaline minerals.
It is important to understand that the pH thing is not just a piece of fancy chemistry we don’t need to worry too much about. Here are just three simple reasons why:
- If our body pH sinks below 4.0. we die.
- Bacteria, viruses, fungi and all disease-producing organisms flourish in an acidic medium and die in alkaline conditions. The same is true of Cancer cells. So once our body pH starts to drop below neutral, we are opening the door for disease right there.
- All the many Enzymes required for every function in our bodies will not work under acid conditions.
So if we keep our body fluids alkaline, we are setting up the first line of defence against disease and aging.
