PH - The measure of hydrogen ions (H+)
I learnt something about this in class, right?
Yes, but not a lot.... Not enough.
If there is a conspiracy here, it is that PH and its significance are not bought enough to our attention as trusting souls. You may not even recall a
mention of PH in your education.
The body, your body, is around 70% water. Your body has a PH level. For us as Humans, maintaining an alkaline fluid system might not be as critical as
other matters eg looking before you cross the road, but it can mean the difference between a healthy system and one which is riddled with disease.
Things from bellyache and eczema, to cancer.
Unlike a plant, a human won't be so critically affected by adverse PH levels in its system; instead, we will survive, but with a susceptibility to
diseases and poor wellbeing...or 'poorbeing' - Some live with horrendous disabilities and disease for decades.
Nurturing plants, although having its own reward, taught me something for my efforts - Give a plant alkaline water and no matter how ideal the other
conditions, no matter how much nutrients are fed, it won't work out. We need the opposite with regards to PH...just as we have the opposite regarding
gasses, but we share the need for a healthy PH level within our system.
Green Tea, lemon & lime juice (squeezed fresh), or a bottle of organic apple cider vinegar - Have one of these in your house and diet everyday and it
will be an easy first step. Ultimately, you can adjust your entire diet around this principle. A bad PH is really easy, and perhaps even quite
enjoyable to achieve, but all I ask is that you bear in mind how acidic pleasures can affect your short, mid and long term health; as well as
adversely affecting your every function, organ and cell.
Look after yourself....and each other.
