Occasionally we come across a medical practitioner who makes the blanket statement that the body is infinitely capable of maintaining its own pH balance. In one sense this is true; we do indeed have amazing pH rebalancing ability, but nothing comes without a price in energy. These medicos seem to base their theory on an ideal body. Unfortunately there seems to be as close to no such thing anymore. It makes sense to me that if I load myself up with acidic foods, my body inherits the cleanup and rebalancing job, and expends valuable resources in doing so. Unfortunately again, the same professionals often have the opinion that because I’m not of the same qualification, my opinion doesn’t count. Fortunately things are changing. A doctor friend of mine tells me there’s a general and pervasive trend towards patients arriving very informed for their co-consultation. But just to reassure readers who still think their doctor is superhuman, here is a study showing the reality of acidosis, and results in using alkaline ionized water. here’s another study discussing acidosis induced by diet. Again, we have some medicos saying diet can’t create systemic acidosis, so this is another important study. It’s a .pdf and so you need to click on the link to download it. Here’s the link. Diet-induced acidosis: is it real and clinically relevant?
