The acid/alkaline balance of our blood & tissues greatly influences how efficiently we function & the aging process. When our body is acidic and inflamed the pathways to making & metabolizing hormones is significantly affected. It’s very difficult to have hormone balance in an acidic body.
Under the same umbrella of acidity we see oxidative stress (cellular rusting), free radical production and inflammation. We negate this by alkalizing with greens, superfoods, herbs & antioxidants such as in Fem21. Effective detoxification at a cellular level and in the gut is extremely important. Thankfully Fem21 is supportive of many systems to improve overall health & happiness.
The acid / alkaline balance in our body contributes greatly to how efficiently we function. When we are more acidic it leads to chronic, degenerative conditions and symptoms. Think along the lines of oxidative stress, rusting, free radicals and inflammation.
Having elevated systemic acidity can lead to more physical stress, increased weight and a vast range of other symptoms. Also high acidity in our blood (not our gut we want it there), can decrease our body’s ability to absorb minerals, nutrients, damage cells, decrease the ability of our cells to detoxify. It also makes you more susceptible to fatigue and illness.
As a Naturopath I strongly believe in the body’s ability to heal itself, given the right environment & conditions to do so. Thereby restoring the acid / alkaline balance can certainly help to restore health. By including alkalising greens, alkalising herbs and antioxidants we can address this issue. Allowing us to detoxify and cleanse naturally without creating more stress or inflammation.
