How pH Balances Your Stool

( — May 14, 2018) Cheyenne, Wyoming — Acid and base are terms most people reserve for chemistry class but it’s a very practical and important matter when it comes to the human body. While waste isn’t something particularly flowery to discuss, it is a natural byproduct of consuming and living so might as well understand how it works for and against the body under different conditions. 

The body uses excretion, sweating and various discharges to name a few functions but they all depend heavily on the body’s pH balance because for the most part, all metabolic waste is acidic. 

“If our internal environment is not maintained in a state of pH balance, our body’s ability to eliminate the waste products slows down,” explains Aqua Health. “To protect itself, the body converts acidic waste into solid waste and stores it in less critical areas of the body. The accumulation of solid waste contributes to many health problems including excess weight, clogged arteries, arthritis, kidney stones, and various other chronic illnesses.” 

There are a number of things that can be done to help regulate and maintain pH balance and the easiest one to start with is a change of diet. Closely monitoring how much acid rich food is ingested is an important start and loading up on more of the foods that encourages an alkaline state is most effective. 

“It might take even as little as two weeks to bring stool pH down on a plant-based diet,” explains “In a study published in the British Journal of Cancer, a dozen volunteers carefully selected for their trustworthiness and randomized to sequentially go on regular, vegetarian, or vegan diets and two weeks in, a significant drop in fecal pH was achieved eating completely plant-based. But there are differing qualities of plant-based diets.” 

Alkaline water is a quicker way of influencing pH changes as liquids are absorbed in the blood stream pretty fast. But the whole process of becoming more alkaline is one to be monitored carefully because the body should only be slightly alkaline, overdoing it can cause another set of problems.

The best way to go about supporting a healthy internal state is to test the body’s pH balance on a regular basis to establish its average pattern and access what lifestyle changes may be necessary.
