Do you have a number of small, inexplicable health issues? Have you tried taking over the counter drugs without any results? One of the possible causes can be explained by the body becoming acidic. Acidity is caused by an unhealthy diet and creates several health issues in the body. Here are 5 signs of acidity and how to quickly fix them.
Insomnia is caused by imbalance and a lack of calcium. The body cannot relax and settle with unbalanced pH levels and high acidity will cause sleeplessness. Drinking lavender tea can help sleeplessness. Drinking a glass of water with a slice of lemon in it can actually help reduce acidity levels. Avoid alcohol and caffeine and consume green, leafy vegetables. Fruits and organic foods can greatly cut down the acidity levels as well.
2. Fatigue and exhaustion
Our body needs fluids for daily and vital tasks, such as digestion, transporting nutrients and oxygen throughout the body, immunity and overall lubrication of the body. If these fluids become too acidic, then the capacity of our fluids to work becomes less. Our body has to work that much harder which causes the body to tire easily. To combat exhaustion, drink plenty of water, cut down on alcohol, have a balanced diet and get more rest.
3. Muscle and joint pain
Excess acid can to constricted blood vessels and muscles. This means that it is harder for oxygenated blood to reach the muscles, especially during physical activity. The body is deprived of oxygen, vitamins, and nutrients. The muscles have to work harder and so we feel muscle or joint pain. If you have fatigue with the muscle pain this is a very clear sign that your body is overloaded with acids. This can be fixed by cutting down on all junk foods, sugary soft drinks, caffeine, and red meat. Eating more fruits, vegetables, organic yoghurt and exercise will also help heal muscle pain.
4. Skin problems/ Acne
When the body pH is not balanced, it can create issues for the kidneys and liver. These are the cleansing organs of the body and when they can’t function properly, the body can’t get rid of the toxins that get built up. This results in a number of skin problems such as acne, psoriasis, and rosacea. Eliminating acidic foods and eating a balanced diet without sugar and additives can resolve these issues, especially when combined with drugs prescribed from a dermatologist.
5. Weak bones
When the body gets too acidic, it tries to neutralise the excess acid by drawing calcium from the bones. When the body uses too much calcium, the bones get soft and weak. This, in turn, leads to osteoporosis or osteopenia. Also, bones are weak and fragile and fracture or break easily. This can be reversed by cutting out red meat, soft drinks and acidic food while consuming dairy products and calcium-rich foods.
