Less Stress for Better Internal Health

(Newswire.net — May 7, 2018) Cheyenne, Wyoming — Mental health is just as important as working on one’s physique. A slightly alkaline internal state is the perfect pH balance for humans and there are a number of factors affecting this chemical balance, some more obvious than others. 

“You probably know all too well how stress, worry, and anxiety can trigger acid reflux and other gut miseries,” explains JJ Virgin, celebrity nutrition and fitness expert. “In fact, scientists found that people who experienced major stress had significantly increased blood pressure, pulse rates, and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) symptoms. Deep breathing, meditation, yoga, or just a long walk around the block with your dog can relieve anxiety and stress. Additionally, research shows that people who plow through their meals suffer more GERD. Slowing down is easier said than done, but try to be mindful when you’re eating. Remember, it takes 20 minutes for your brain to get the message you’re full.” 

Diet is one of the main players in the body’s pH levels. As the body metabolizes the food eaten a ton of chemical reactions takes place from the moment the meal enters the mouth. Chewing introduces enzymes while mechanically breaking down food as the initial stage of pH changes. Surprisingly, acidic things like an orange or lemon actually have an alkaline effect on the body when ingested. 

“Most fruits and vegetables, including citrus, make your body alkaline,” says Sonja Benjamin, Therapist at Atlanta Classical Homeopathy.”You need 8 servings of fresh fruit and vegetables to keep your body alkaline. Meat, dairy, and grains make your body acidic. I recommend that your food intake should be 75% alkaline foods.” 

The way one selects foods how the body processes and balances its internal conditions however even if the ideal diet is achieved mental and emotional health can throw things out of whack. Feelings of constant pressure, hopelessness and other self-eroding thoughts are more far reaching than most would imagine. A host of chemicals are triggered under distress such as the typically produced cortisol and ketones, making the body more acidic than it really needs to be. 

“An over active adrenal gland caused by high levels of stress can release a hormone called aldosterone into the blood stream causing large quantities of potassium to be excreted into the urine,” explains the Psychological Harassment Information Association. “Aldosterone also causes the excretion of magnesium into the urine. Stress and anxiety are the principal acid generators aside from the diet.” 

People can even think themselves into an acidic state by just worrying, not properly dealing with stressful issues, ignoring anxiety attacks and other counter intuitive thoughts.

Then there is the matter of pollution and toxins all about. In this highly modernized world, there is a constant stream of smog, exhausts from vehicles and chemical waste from factories that pollute the air and make breathing quite a task on the body. The multitude of personal care products have chemical properties that often do the body more harm than good in the long run if they’re they aren’t produced from natural or organic materials.

What might be a shocker to some is that exercising too much can actually make the body too acidic and even gain weight. Indeed, there is a point where exercising can be just too much but it’s not something most people consider because frankly most people don’t actually exercise enough, many don’t exercise at all. But pushing the body too hard at the gym can result is the excessive production of lactic acid in the muscles.

Lastly, staying hydrated is a big part of staying balanced. If not enough water is consumed then the kidneys simple can’t filter the blood efficiently which leaves the blood stuck with the excess acid that ought to be quickly passed through the urinary tract. Speaking of which, a urine or saliva test is the easiest and best way of monitoring pH levels for oneself.
