The human body works similar to how an alkaline battery works; thus, when its overall pH level is too acidic, its performance decreases. Acidic blood, also known as acidosis is toxic to your cells and organs because it weakens their physical structures and reduces their abilities to function properly. When your cells are impaired, they have a harder time destroying bacteria and virus.

Acidosis also creates an environment for cancer and disease to thrive in. Furthermore, high levels of acid in your blood can lead to joint pain, weight problem, and other health issues. A healthy blood pH level is slightly above 7.3. Any lower than 7.3 is considered somewhat acidic. The lower the blood pH level, the more acidic the blood becomes.

As described at

An acidic pH can occur from an acid forming diet, emotional stress, toxic overload, and/or immune reactions or any process that deprives the cells of oxygen and other nutrients.  The body will try to compensate for acidic pH by using alkaline minerals.  If the diet does not contain enough minerals to compensate, a build up of acids in the cells will occur.

An acidic balance will: decrease the body’s ability to absorb minerals and other nutrients, decrease the energy production in the cells, decrease it’s ability to repair damaged cells, decrease it’s ability to detoxify heavy metals, make tumor cells thrive, and make it more susceptible to fatigue and illness.  A blood pH of 6.9, which is only slightly acidic, can induce coma and death.

Below are five ways to reduce the acid in your blood:

  1. Avoid eating junk food because most junk food contains unhealthy ingredients that can make your blood acidic.
  2. Stay away from artificial sweeteners, such as aspartame and sucralose. These two artificial sweeteners are considered neurotoxins by independent researchers. Aspartame and sucralose can cause your blood to become acidic because they have acid forming qualities.
  3. Limit your soda (pop) consumption or avoid it completely. Soda is one of the major contributors to acidosis in the U.S. because it is low in pH and Americans drink it in abundance. Soda is also a major contributor to osteoporosis. When the blood becomes too acidic the body neutralizes it with calcium and other nutrients; therefore, causing the bone to become brittle. The pH level of soda can range anywhere from 2.0-4.0 which is very acidic.
  4. Eat more fresh organic fruits and vegetables because most of them are alkaline.
  5. Avoid fast food because it is a major contributor to acidosis. Most fast foods aren’t healthy for you due to the fact that they contain refined sugar, salt and genetically modified ingredients.

    very useful information i must say. I never thought that blood could be acidic and lead to cancers and tumours.

      actually acidic blood causes an inflammation of the wall of the artery. Cholesterol then clinches to the artery wall to protect it. So it is a big mistake to lower cholesterol artificially (and a big ripp-off by the pharma-industry). Watch what you eat and if you drink milk drink only raw milk.
