More on Baking Soda and Acid Alkaline Balance

Our body pH is very important because pH controls the speed of our body's biochemical reactions.  It does this by controlling the speed of enzyme activity as well as the speed that electricity moves through our body. The higher (more alkaline) the pH of a substance or solution, the more electrical resistance that substance or solution holds.  Therefore, eletricity travels slower with higher pH. If we say something has an acid pH, we are saying it is hot and fast.  Alkaline pH on the other hand, bio-chemically speaking, is slow and cool.

 The closer the pH is to 7.35 - 7.45, the higher our level of health and well being and our ability to resist states of disease.

Body pH level changes have a profound effect on total body physiology.  Oxidative stress, which correlates directly with pH, changes into the acidic, is especially dangerous to the mitochondria, which suffer the greatest under oxidatie duress.  Only by eliminating acid waste, restoring your body's pH balance and preventing further accumulation of acid will we be able to lower our risk of cancer and other serious chronic diseases.
