What Is Acid?

Acid is the toxin waste that you can not metabolize in your body. When your body fluids contain too much acid, it’s known as acidosis.

Acidosis can be the root cause leading to numerous health issues, and it can even be life-threatening.

The body is a complex design of many interactive sets of systems. The digestive, lymphatic and endocrine systems, as well as a complex eco-system of nerves, organs, fluids, fats, bones, and muscle.

Some of these organs, such as the stomach, need to be acidic in order to digest the food. In fact, the stomach is very acidic. The bloodstream, on the other hand, needs to be slightly alkaline. Also because the plasma in the blood is so vital to the optimum functioning of the body’s health systems. Ultimately, those proposing an alkaline diet are right. We need to consume a mostly alkaline-producing diet to stay healthy.

Many of the body’s processes produce acid. Some parts of the body need to be acidic, others, such as the blood, needs to be slightly alkaline. And the foods we eat, the stresses of life, the kinds of beverages we drink, will all affect the outcome.

Examples of stress causing toxic events that can bring about imbalance include abuse, neglect, extreme poverty, violence, household dysfunction, and food scarcity.

Acid And Toxic Events

Acid is the cause of your failure to control weight.

Your lungs and kidneys can usually compensate for slight pH imbalances. But problems with these organs can lead to excess acid accumulating in your body. The acidity of your blood is measured by determining its pH. A lower pH means that your blood is more acidic, while a higher pH means that your blood is more basic.

Metabolic acidosis starts in the kidneys. It occurs when they can’t eliminate enough acid or when they get rid of too much base. There are three major forms of metabolic acidosis: Diabetic, Hyperchloremic, Lactic.
Lactic acidosis occurs when there’s too much lactic acid in your body. Causes can include chronic alcohol use, heart failure, cancer, seizures, liver failure, prolonged lack of oxygen, and low blood sugar. Even prolonged exercise can lead to lactic acid buildup.

Respiratory acidosis starts in the lungs. It occurs when too much CO2 builds up in the body. Normally, the lungs remove CO2 while you breathe. Poor breathing habits made worse through obesity, overuse of alcohol, misuse of sedatives, all lead to acid buildup

These all cause the blood to become acidic.
It is the acid that activates the source of your cancer cells and other dis-eases.
