All of us at some of the other time may have experienced the feeling of excessive thirst, heart burn, burping, belching, bloating, unease in the stomach or acid re-flux, when one feels like one may throw up.
All of the above symptoms are indications that the body is in a Highly Acidic State and is experiencing Stress.
A. Our body needs to maintain its Acid Alkaline balance in stay in perfect health.
The human body is designed to maintain a perfect internal balance to stay healthy through the balance of Acid, Base (alkaline) Concentration (ABC) in our internal body fluids like blood, saliva, urine, plasma, tissue fluids, metabolic fluids, and sweat.
This Acid Alkaline balance is measured on a pH scale, which reflects the concentration of positively charged molecules in our internal body fluids. pH levels affect every cell of our body and influences all our bodily functions that include our metabolic processes, the beating of our heart and even the neural message pathways of the brain.
B. pH Scale
The pH scale that ranges from 0 to 14, where 7 is the neutral level; anything below 7 is acidic and above 7 is base/alkaline. Almost all internal fluids maintain their balance in a narrow range from 6.9 to 7.4. Our blood the most important feeder of nutrients needs to stay at a pH level of 7.365 in a perfectly healthy condition.
When our body environment remains in high or chronic over acidic condition, it starts to interfere with our normal bodily functions. An acidic body environment is the root cause of all diseases, making our body vulnerable to germs and viruses and creating a perfect condition for ill health.
C. What we eat, how we eat and when we eat plays a very important role in helping our body maintain its pH balance.
Every food we eat, once it is metabolized that leave behind a residue or ash, based upon the mineral components present in the food.
Fresh natural, nutrient dense, wholesome raw foods like fruits, vegetables, nuts & sprouts leave behind an Alkaline residue; whereas cooked food, heavy fried foods, junk food, processed food, meat, dairy, alcohol etc leave behind an Acidic residue.
Lemon shots have the potential to restore the Acid Alkaline balance instantaneously, without interfering with the metabolic process of your body. Lemon shots help the body release the stress caused by over acidic condition instantaneously.
