Every living creature has a pH balance, which is a delicate balance of acid and alkaline chemicals. In chemistry, pH (or potential of hydrogen) is a relative measure of how acidic or alkaline a substance is on a scale of 0 to 14, with 0 being the more acidic end of the scale, 14 being more alkaline, and 7 being neutral, or neither acidic nor alkaline.
To get technical, the pH scale is logarithmic, so a pH value of 4 is 10 times more acidic than a pH of 5, a pH of 5 is 10 times more acidic than a pH of 6, and so on. The pH of pure water is normally 7. The pH of the body will vary greatly depending on which part of the body is being referenced. A healthy body will naturally regulate the pH of its various systems so that each one stays at the optimum level for that particular bodily environment. This is crucial, because a large fluctuation in pH would make your body stop working.
Table 1. pH of selected fluids, organs, and membranes
The blood maintains a specific pH range and that range isn’t directly affected by the foods we eat because it’s mostly self-regulating. The pH of urine, however, will vary depending on what we consume, our age, health, and nutrient absorption capabilities. The lungs, kidneys and skin work together to maintain tight pH control, counteracting the acid load you get from food and from the waste products of normal metabolic processes. Within seconds of an imbalance, the body compensates. Together, the kidneys, the lungs, and the skin work to reduce toxins and maintain the body’s pH balance.
By eating a balanced diet, you take the extra work from your body so it can get back to its primary purpose — keeping you alive and well. Most people who suffer from unbalanced pH are acidic. This means that the pH of the urine is below 6 or above 7. This condition forces the body to borrow minerals—including calcium, sodium, potassium and magnesium—from vital organs and bones to buffer (neutralize) the acid and safely remove it from the body. Because of this strain, the body can suf
fer severe and prolonged damage due to high acidity—a condition that may go undetected for years.
