Make Your Body More Alkaline

Your body has the ability to heal itself, if you don’t get in the way. One way that you negatively impact your body’s ability to heal itself is by altering your body’s pH so it’s out of the ideal range.

Acidic versus Alkaline

Your metabolism converts food into energy and the waste (ash) produced during this process can be alkaline, neutral, or acidic. This ash affects the pH of your body. pH value range from 0–14:

  • Acidic: 0.0–6.9
  • Neutral: 7.0
  • Alkaline (or basic): 7.1–14.0

The pH of a healthy human body ranges between 7.35 and 7.45, with the average at 7.40. A pH at this level is ideal for many bodily functions, including blood oxygenation.

Our lungs and kidneys help regulate our blood pH. Our lungs (which are affected by grief) regulate blood pH by exhaling carbon dioxide. As we store grief in our lungs, we often breathe less and become more acidic. Our kidneys (which are affected by fear) regulate blood pH by excreting acids through our urine. As we store fear in our kidneys, we often “hold on” and “freeze” thereby restricting the releasing of acids.

Factors That Affect Body pH

Factors that can affect our body pH include diet and stress.

Diet: If we eat foods that leave acidic ash, it makes our blood more acidic. If we eat foods that leave alkaline ash, it makes our blood more alkaline. Our North American diet tends to make use more acidic.

Stress: As we experience stress, fear and grief affect our lungs and kidneys and our bodies become more acidic. In general, our bodies are more acidic than what is ideal.

  • “Do you tell me to follow along with Monica’s meditation?”
