The majority of people in our modern society suffer from acidification, without being aware of it; caused by increasing intake of toxic and acid-forming foods, such as processed sugars, artificial sweeteners, refined grains, conventionally produced meat and dairy, and not to forget hidden genetically modified organisms. These foods overburden our immune system, which becomes disordered.
When the acidity in the body is too high, it has an adverse impact on the joints. To correct the acidity, the body uses minerals such as calcium, potassium and magnesium from the bones. The body can not miss these substances and causes joint problems, such as arthritis and rheumatism, muscle loss, but also receding gums and weak or broken teeth.
A high acidified body is an ideal habitat for pathogens, such as constipation, upset stomach, infection, skin problems, muscle cramp, headaches, allergies, sensitive joints, heart rhythm disorders, fungal infections such as candida, and many more.
In a more advanced stage, symptoms can aggravate in diabetes, gout, stroke, extreme fatigue, depression and overloading the immune system, which causes more serious and chronicle ailments such as heart disease and cancer.
We can re-balance our acid-base by changing our lifestyle; by following an Alkaline based diet, supported by light exercise, optimal breathing, fresh air, a positive attitude, sufficient sleep during the night and the illumination of stress and radiation. The improvement of our lifestyle will help to restore the immune system and re-balance the pH level.
There are numerous tests on the market to measure your acid-alkaline state, with only a few drop of morning urine. When out of balance, I highly recommend the use of Alkaline products, such as Sodium bicarbonate, to support the re-balance of your pH level.
An alkaline diet helps to restore the acid balance. This diet is mainly vegetarian, with lots of fresh vegetables, fruits, herbal tea’s, dairy with galactose bacteria, sourdough bread and cold pressed oil. Drink sufficient clean and filtered water, preferably with a 1/4 tsp of Sodium bicarbonate, at the beginning and the end of your day.
It is wise to avoid processed and prepared foods, such as sugar, alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, light products, dairy foods and meet. After a strict diet for perhaps two months, it is advisable to maintain an acid-base diet, to stay healthy. However, this does not mean to avoid acid forming foods altogether, as the body does need some, as incineration of acid produces energy.
In previous blogs, I have written about the alkaline workings of Apple Cider Vinegar and Sodium bicarbonate. In addition, I like to emphasise the use of fresh Lemon juice. Lemon is extremely acid, just as Apple Cider Vinegar, but the kind that alkaline’s when processed in the body. They have the quality to bring a perfect pH balance, with incredible detoxification qualities. When making a habit to start your day with the intake of a cup of hot water with a big squeeze of lemon juice, you’ll make your blood more alkaline and boost your digestion, decreasing inflammation and pain. For sure a powerful kickstart of your day!
BATHING TO ALKALINE THE BODY
To Alkaline the body you can bathe with Apple Cider Vinegar, Sodium Bicarbonate, or Alkaline Mineral Salt. My favourite Mineral Salt is MeineBase from Jentschura, with a pH value of 8.5. It’s a mixture of 8 finely grounded gemstones; agate, carnelian, chalcedony, chrysoprase, citrine, sapphire, rock crystal, and onyx. These gems are fitted to the chakras of the body and help to open them and keep a continuous flow of energy.
Next to detoxification and balancing the pH level, it energises the entire energy system. After a bath your skin feels silky and soft, making a body lotion unnecessary. Health problems that may result from acidification in the body, such as fungi, psoriasis, acne and even rheumatism ailment may decrease when taking a regular alkaline bath
YOUNGER BY DEACIDIFICATION
The accumulation of acid waste in our body promotes the ageing process. Removing the stored acid waste, by deacidification, is equivalent to reversing ageing. Meaning, younger by deacidification! There is no reason to accept ageing with additional ailments, as a part of life.
“Younger by Deacidification” is a classic book on pH balance and living a healthy life, written by Sang Whang. The book is composed in a popular scientific way, making it accessible to a broad public.

Finally, an acid-base balance is the foundation for good health, a proper metabolism and an optimal digestion, preventing disease.
