There are two factors which contribute to a pH imbalance.
• The first is the person’s diet (Food) and the second is the person’s emotional well being (Stress and Anxiety).
Balancing your pH is widely considered to be the single most important thing you can do for your health.
Stress and anxiety are the principal acid generators aside from the diet. & Sleep Deprivation
• acid-base disorders can lead to the progression of most degenerative diseases. (degenerative diseases)
• acid-base disorders can lead to heart disease or stroke. (heart disease)
• acid-base disorders can lead to osteoporosis or bone loss. (osteoporosis)
• acid-base disorders results in cells becoming poisoned by their own toxic waste and die. (premature aging)
• acid-base disorders can overwhelm the body and lead to cancer. (cancer)
• acid-base disorders can lead to the progression of excessive systemic weight gain. (weight gain)
• acid-base disorders can affect you neurologically or psychologically. (depression & social withdrawal)
• acid-base disorders can lead to macromineral deficiencies. (macromineral deficiencies)
• macromineral deficiencies can also cause hair loss and brittle nails. (hair loss & nails)
• sleep deprivation increases acid-base disorders. (sleep deprivation)
• high levels of sugar in your diet can lead to acid-base disorders. (sugar)
• the lack of nutritional food can lead to macromineral deficiencies and acid-base disorders. (food & nutrition)
• sleep deprivation prevents the growth hormone, which builds muscle and bone, from being released in the sleep cycle. (sleep deprivation & growth hormone)
• Cushing’s Syndrome, high levels of stress, can lead to muscle loss or muscle wasting and acid-base disorders.
• stress and acid-base disorders can lead to a burn-out. (burn-out)
“"A tactic that is sometimes used, to break a person down psychologically and physically, is to induce as much stress as possible for a long period of time." This tactic is often used to cause macromineral deficiencies and acid-base disorders in the victim.””
“people who are burned out have a two- to-threefold higher risk of heart problems, including recurrent myocardial infarction, stroke, coronary-bypass surgery, increase of coronary atherosclerosis, and cardiac death.”
“when stress is long-lasting, the engine of inflammation can run without end. Over the long term, inflammatory molecules can "spill into the brain, where they may cause apathy, social withdrawal, fatigue, and changes in eating habits.”
• "The fight-or-flight response, stress, especially adrenaline deplete the body of macrominerals which leads to different disorders such as macromineral deficiencies and acid-base disorders."
• "Researchers estimate that stress contributes to as many as 80 percent of all major illnesses, including cardiovascular disease, cancer, endocrine and metabolic disease, skin disorders, and infectious ailments of all kinds."
• Lead accumulates in a person’s bones during their life. When a person suffers from acid-base disorders lead can be released in the body resulting in neurological or psychological disorders. (neurological disorders)
Health Risks of Lead Exposure
Short-term exposure to high levels of lead can cause vomiting, diarrhea, convulsions, coma or even death. Severe cases of lead poisoning are rare in Canada.
However, ongoing exposure to even very small amounts of lead can be harmful, especially to infants and young children. Lead taken in by pregnant women can also pose a danger to the health of unborn children. You may not notice the symptoms of long-term lead exposure but they are still serious. Anaemia is common and lead can also damage the brain and nervous system. Other symptoms are:
• appetite loss
• abdominal pain
• Nervous system toxicity can cause erethism or "mad hatter syndrome" with symptoms of shyness, laughing, crying, and dramatic mood swings for no apparent reason; nervousness; insomnia; memory problems; and the inability to concentrate. Other neurologic symptoms may include encephalopathy (non-specific brain malfunction), nerve damage, Parkinsonian symptoms, tremor, ataxia (loss of balance), impaired hearing, tunnel vision, dysarthria (slurred speech), headache, fatigue, impaired sexual function, and depression.
A vitamin B complex and food such as garlic and onions can help you get heavy metals like mercury and lead out of your brain and body.
