An acidic body is a body that is so weak metabolically that it is no longer able to handle normal daily activities, effectively deal with pathogens and clear it’s naturally accumulated metabolic waste.
“Acidic bodies” start to supplement with vitamins, amino acids and herbs inaccurately, thus disturbing the natural balance. Having success with one symptom, they continue to take the remedy that provides a temporary relief while this leads to a significant negative health impact over time. The real purpose of this attempt should be a carefully planned routine to provide the body with nutrients it needs to restore the impaired functions.
Too little protection from too much acid. A human body is a very sophisticated organism that can adapt and function with a moderately narrow range of ingredients. The fact that more and more people become aware of nutritional deficiencies along side of food intolerances and allergies indicates an underlying pathology where the food intake alone is not responsible for symptoms.
Unlike an acute metabolic acidosis (a.k.a., systemic acidosis), when the body is unable to sustain a proper pH ratio in the blood, an acidic body is a marked condition characterized by an increase of toxic metabolism byproducts. In chronically unwell people it is commonly a result of a hypoalimentation, very gradual mineral depletion that leads to a depletion of intracellular glutathione. This occurs either due to a sustained imbalance in nutritional intake, a chronic metabolic stressor such as a recurring psychological stress or any physiological condition that results in an impaired bio-assimilation. A poor kidney function that deviates from a normal kidney function accompanied by an unhealthy life style might be one of the contributors.
The deficiency of nutrients that is required for hormone and alkalizing buffering agents production affects the digestive and detoxification functions. The net result is a build up of an unneutralized acidifying metabolic waste that requires more bioavailable nutrients than available within the body.
The mineral malnutrition forces the body into the energy crisis and a state of a sustained metabolic stress. It’s facilitated by hormone and neurotransmitter disorders that profoundly affect the functions of the entire human body. As the course of the condition progresses downward, the spectrum of the symptoms gradually increases. The quality of one’s life progressively decreases with the development of adverse health conditions such as persistent fatigue that initially resolves with afternoon naps, indigestion, burping and acid reflux, very light brown or yellow bowel movements, chronic inflammation, weight gain, insomnia, anxiety, neurological and autoimmune disorders such as chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, costochondritis, kidney stones and many others.
Despite the fact that the condition is very easy to prevent, diagnose and treat at the earlier stages, this marker is practically and completely ignored by the medical health care practitioners due to lack of scientific knowledge and other uncertain (?) factors. This results in devastating consequences arising from misdiagnosis followed by development of adverse health conditions and treatments aimed at the symptomathology and not the root of their cause.
The symptoms are treated with drugs that further contribute to deterioration of overall health while masking the body’s functions that are designed to alert of an approaching metabolic disaster. The vicious loop never ends prompting people to sick alternative treatments that often serve as merely a “band aid” to one’s misery as any more substances introduced into the body such as an overload of herbs or proteins place more strain on metabolic cycles creating more acidic waste in the end.
The abundance of drugs, dietary supplements and outlets that sell them creates an overwhelming competitive market. Promotion of these products leads to inappropriate methods of marketing such as blog sites that appear to be personal, forged product reviews and miracle cure campaigns that claim to virtually reverse any health condition. Mislead consumers try these products and perhaps even gain a temporary relief. This adds to more artificially created popularity of one product or another. As time goes by, the symptoms come back and are often accompanied by new conditions that are indicative of a more serious systemic involvement that starts to severely affect organs such as skin, pancreas, liver, kidney, stomach and many others. Misdiagnosed, this complex leaves people with incapacity to function and enjoy the lives they were once given.
