For some time now, rumors regarding the link between our cell phones and the risk of cancer have been abound. With so many articles on the subject, opinion is greatly conflicted. Some say it’s absolutely conclusive while others say it’s inconclusive. So, what are the facts and what can we do about it?
We all tend to sweat more during the summer, especially in Texas. Every time you sweat, you are losing essential minerals. The loss of these minerals, stress and what you put in your body daily can affect your overall pH. When you measure your pH level using urine testing strips, you are checking how acid or alkaline the waste products in your urine are. The lower your pH, the more acidic your urine is, indicating more overall stress in the body. Anything that deprives your body of oxygen can cause your body to shift to a more acidic pH. And the more acidic your system becomes, the less likely it will be able to do things like fight off bacteria and yeast, rebuild bone and help with muscle repair. Each organ system has a different pH in your body, and it requires a wide range of neutral to alkaline foods and liquids to maintain the balance that is necessary to keep everything working optimally.
