The correct acid-base balance is indispensable for the normal action of the metabolic processes and maintaining wellbeing of the body. Acid-alkaline balance in the body is not a straightforward value on the pH table, but rather as a continuously moving dynamic equilibrium. Various organs in the body require very different pH levels to work efficiently. Just to give an example:
Blood: slightly alkaline, between 7.35 and 7.45.
Stomach: very acidic, between 2 and 4.
Intestine: slightly acidic, between 5.5 and 7.
The ratio of acids to bases is not only important for a healthy metabolism, it also determines the structure and function of proteins, permeability of cell membranes, distribution of electrolytes, and functioning of connective tissue.*
Although the quantity of acids and bases in our body changes permanently, depending on the nutrition, stress levels, exercise, and the toxic load in the body, the body works very hard to maintain the pH value in the various organs and tissues within a constant narrow range. The body will do this, even if it means sacrificing minerals from the bones or teeth to neutralize excess acid in the blood.
When the alkaline reserves of the body are depleted, the body is left in a weakened state and the body systems start to malfunction, which may lead to chronic illness, such as osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular damage, immune deficiency, among others.***
What can you do at home to balance your body pH and make steps towards radiant health?
Reduce your stress. Chronic stress and negative emotions may cause a pH imbalance in the body and an increase in inflammatory markers, leading, in some cases, to the dysregulation of chronic inflammatory processes. This immune dysregulation favours the development of many diseases including cancer, heart attacks and osteoporosis.** Meditation or yoga are enjoyable practices that can help you deal effectively with your stress levels. Take time to unwind and do the things you truly love and enjoy.
Do exercises. A sedentary lifestyle contributes to latent acidosis of the body. Check with one of our specialists to choose exercises that are most suitable for your body type and health condition.
Ensure you get enough sleep and rest. A well-rested body that receives at least 8 hours of sleep every day produces healthy cells. Please, see our medical team if you have trouble falling asleep so that they could recommend the best solution for your particular case.
Take the right supplements. Neomed Institute chooses only the highest quality products for our guests, and we make this available for you at Neomed. Please, consult with our medical team about the best supplements for your specific health situation, including if alkali powders are the right therapy for you.
Drink enough water. Hydrate yourself to keep all the body systems moving towards detoxification and elimination. The body that keeps the toxin levels low is much less prone to develop a chronic illness. Avoid drinking water with food, as this will dilute the stomach acid, making your stomach more alkaline, hence, reducing the effectiveness of the digestion and allowing the viruses, bacteria and fungi to survive, proceed into the intestines and proliferate.
Eat slowly and chew thoroughly. When you chew your food properly, then enzymes in your saliva start breaking down the food making it easier to digest and ensuring that more nutrients get absorbed. Moreover, the stomach works more efficiently and maintains its acidic environment if the food is liquefied and contains the proper digestive enzymes. Also, unpleasant issues, like gas and bloating, are most likely to be avoided if the food is thoroughly chewed.
Take the best probiotics. The ideal environment for the intestine is slightly acidic, between 5.5 and 7. When the intestinal environment becomes more alkaline (which is one of the factors measured in the stool test that Neomed Institute offers to the guests), then fungi such as Candida overgrow and turn into their pathogenic form and cause the Leaky Gut syndrome. Leaky Gut is one of the causes of auto-immune and chronic illnesses, and must be addressed with an integrative protocol. Probiotics produce small amounts of lactic and acetic acid in the gut, helping to rebalance the pH in the intestine and restore the acidity that is needed to manage the fungal overgrowth.
Baking soda enemas and foot soaks. Baking soda is alkaline, with an average pH level of 8. Adding baking soda to enemas, foot soaks and detoxing baths, will create easy home remedies to increase the body pH levels.
Reduce toxic exposure. An effective way to decrease the acidity of the blood, slow down aging and prevent development of chronic illness is to reduce toxic exposure of the body to man-made chemicals, radio-active elements, electro-magnetic radiation, and toxic foods, among others. However, reducing emotional toxicity is equally important, as chronic diseases may be directly connected to unresolved negative experiences and emotions.
How can our specialists at Neomed Institute help restore right pH balance for a healthier You?
Neomed Institute Medical Team carefully evaluates all factors that contributed to your current health state, including potential pockets of ammonia in your body and brain, and recommends our unique remedies and therapies to balance the body pH.
Receive alkalising infusions. Alkalising infusions (procaine-base or homeopathic procaine-base) have a neutralizing effect so that the body can regain its natural balance. Neomed Institute partnered up with the best chemists in Germany with specialized sterile labs to create alkalizing infusions with homeopathic and isopathic remedies that help the body to balance pH and to nurture body tissues. The use of alkalizing infusions is carefully evaluated by our medical team to ensure its true benefit in conjunction with specific treatments to prepare the body for such therapy.
Receive biomagnetic therapy. Biomagnetic therapy, created by Dr. Isaac Goiz, is a natural and safe way to restore the healthy cellular milieu. A therapist will use pairs of magnets of opposite charges and medium intensity to depolarise areas of body that are out of balance and re-establish the acid-alkaline balance in the body.
Receive microcurrent therapy. Latent acidosis reduces and eventually inhibits oxygen delivery to the tissue and organs. Microcurrent therapy supports maintenance of body pH by stimulating oxygenation and balancing cellular electrical communication. Our visiting consultant Dr. Reinwald is an expert at microcurrent therapy and his unique programs are available only at Neomed.
Choose healthy diet. Our naturopathic team comprised of qualified clinical nutritionists combined with the wisdom of naturopathic medicine specializes in creating unique nutrition protocols for our guests and patients. To do so, we first conduct a highly-specialized bio-compatibility test with an Australian lab that determines which dietary products and cleaning products contribute to the inflammation levels of the body. Then, our team analyses your specific health condition and the precipitating factors that led to it, and creates a nutrition protocol that will be an important step on your wellness path.
Rebalance your digestive system. Our digestive system is the first line of defense against the pathogenic bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. If the stomach and the intestinal tract are too alkaline, for example, because
not enough stomach acid is produced,
an incorrect diet is followed,
the pH increased after courses of antibiotics,
then there is a much higher chance of fungal overgrowth, development of the Leaky Gut syndrome, nutrient malabsorption, inflammation, constipation, and poor elimination, which in turn, will lead to development of chronic and auto-immune diseases.
At Neomed Institute, our Digestive Health programs, headed by highly trained medical and naturopathic team, will target all aspects of the digestive tract including restoration of the mucosal lining, enhancing digestive secretions, regulating motility and restoring the gut microbiome.
Drainage and detox.
We believe that accumulated toxins are one of the major reasons why the body develops chronic illness. Supporting the body to open the elimination pathways (drainage) and subsequently, to start excreting undesired substances through:
lungs (correct breathing),
and your mind (emotional release),
is one of the goals of Neomed Institute therapies.
