What acid does inside you!
1. When you eat food, it is digested in the stomach and in the gut, where
both nutrients and acid are absorbed into the blood. If the meal is primarily alkaline, your kidneys have capacity to excrete the acid. Acid will
therefore not be distributed into the lymphatic system.
2. If however your meal is very acid forming, the acid content in the blood gets
too high. The kidneys can only excrete 2-3 percent pure acid at a time, and
so the excess amount of acid is sent into the lymphatic system. The lymph
attempts to send the acid back into the blood stream, but that’s not possible as long as the blood still struggles with too much acid, because you
continue to eat food that’s acidic, and so the lymph must turn to plan B:
trying to burn away the acid through inflammation, night sweats or fever.
3. If this fails due to excessive amounts of acid, the lymph only has one final
option: Storing the acid in connective tissue, muscles and joints. Here
the acid will irritate the nerves and damage the cells, and while the body
turns increasingly acidic, you will sense the result as bodily pain and
unease. A foundation has now been created for increased risk of fungal
infection, disease, degenerated cells and way too early signs of aging.
4. The good news! When you start on alkaline eating and living, the process will automatically revert itself in the opposite direction. Blood will
become able to receive and excrete the accumulated acid. Gently and
quietly, the acid gets transported from the tissues back to the lymph,
further on to the blood stream, exiting though gut and kidneys, so called
detox. You will again feel light in body and clear of mind.
Do you get headaches and nausea:
... when you embark on Alkaline Living? That’s merely a sign that your body is
busy detoxing. Other nuisances may pop up for a short period. If for instance
you suffer from psoriasis, that’ll increase briefly – before entirely disappearing for as long as your alkaline lifestyle continues. So congratulate yourself,
for the headaches and nausea are caused by your inner spring cleaning, as
you head towards a healthier environment in your body. Diarrhoea is another
natural sign of cleansing.
