Why pH Balance is Important
Our society is plagued with so many health concerns. Many believe that the explanation for this may be due to pH Balance: acid and alkaline A pH-balanced environment maintains proper metabolic function and allows the body to function optimally. High acidity can potentially affect all major body systems such as: digestive, intestinal, circulatory, respiratory and immune systems

Understanding pH
pH is a measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a solution. The lower the pH number, the more acidic. The higher a pH number, the more alkaline. There are pH Balance test kits which will help you determine if your pH is Balanced, too acidic or too alkaline. Call to have your pH Balance tested at The Herb House, contact us for an appointment (407) 673-8345.

If Your pH Balance is Too Acidic for Too Long
This condition potentially forces the body to borrow calcium, sodium, potassium and magnesium from vital organs and bones to remove the acidity from the body. Over time, this process can weaken these organs and bones. The potential concerns for too much acidity are:

  • Acidosis
  • Cardiovascular weakness
  • Weight gain
  • Bladder and kidney concerns
  • Immune deficiency
  • Acceleration of free radical damage
  • Structural system weakness, including brittle bones and hip fractures
  • Joint discomfort and other discomfort associated with lactic acid buildup
  • Low energy
If Your pH Balance is Too Alkaline for Too Long
Though relatively uncommon, high alkalinity in the body causes many of the same kinds of mineral problems as acidity. Too much alkalinity may lead to:
  •  Digestive system sluggishness
  •  Intestinal system concerns, including poor elimination
  •  Respiratory system compromise
  •  Immune system concerns
  •  Urinary system weakness
  •  Nervous system exhaustion
The Body’s Way of Managing Acidity
  • Excretion of acids: colon, kidneys, lungs, skin
  • Buffering of acids: calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium
  • Storage of acids: tissue, joints, muscles, arteries
Keeping Your pH Balanced for Optimum Health

Minerals are used to buffer acids. Your body is able to assimilate minerals and nutrients only when it’s pH is properly balance. It is possible for you to take in healthy nutrients and yet be unable to absorb them.
