Obesity Linked to pH

Obesity and the body’s pH are linked.  When a person becomes acidic, a lack of oxygen occurs causing cellular metabolism to slow down, leading to obesity.  Other cellular conditions linked to acidity include toxicity, dehydration, osteoporosis, malnutrition and decreased circulation.

Excessive calories without enough exercise to burn them, is one factor that causes an acid pH. Unburned food is stored as fatty acids (fat).  When fatty acids are broken down, their by-products, acetic acid, lactic acid, and LDL cholesterol, drastically cause the body fluids to become acidic. These toxic residues in and around the cells result in a reduction of ATP production (energy) and lowered metabolism. A reduced metabolic rate makes it even harder for the body to dispose of unburned food, which is then stored as additional fat.

Another factor that contributes to an acid pH is eating too many acid-forming foods. The acid by-products of these foods are very toxic and need to be neutralized by alkaline minerals.  This causes a depletion of the minerals stored in the muscles, organs and bones.  Over a period of time, it also causes obesity, accelerated aging, osteoporosis, and many other degenerative diseases common today.  To change an acid pH and replace lost minerals, we need to eat more alkaline foods and take more whole food mineral supplements.

When we are born, our pH is slightly alkaline.  Do you know what yours is now? Come in for a free pH evaluation.  It only takes a few minutes.  If you’re out of balance, we can set up a consultation to teach you how to correct it. If you want to have more energy, lose weight, increase your metabolism and slow down the aging process, you need to learn what you can do to maintain a proper pH.
