The pH level of any environment will tell whether it is acidic or alkaline. Any pH level of less than 7 indicates acidity and a value higher than 7 means alkalinity. Rainwater has the perfect 7 because it is neutral.
When it comes to our body, the pH value will vary from one organ (and body part) to another. A few examples are as follows:
- Our saliva’s pH value is in the range of 6.5 and 7.0
- The skin can have around 5.5 pH (acidic)
- Our digestive tract has a pH ranging between 1.5 and 7.0
A blood pH level between 7.35 and 7.45 is considered healthy (our blood pH is light alkaline). The pH of our blood is maintained by our kidneys and lungs, and if the value changes it indicates there is some underlying health issue.

Whenever our body’s pH balance is affected (it turns excessively acidic or alkaline), our cells become toxic. Our cells can start dying in such a situation.
When there is a high level of cell acidity, our body will counter the situation by trying to store the additional acid in our organs and other parts. This further increases acidity.
So when there is chronic Natural News, it causes damage to our tissues. It could also turn into malignancy, causing cellular mutation and cellular death.
In its worst form, this situation can lead to metastasis. The dead and acidic cells are held within our body and the malignant/mutated cells will keep growing without any control and expand to other organs/body parts.
At the same time, modern diets contribute to the acidic environment. Our foods contain sugars, processed foods, alcohol, and caffeine that further increase acidity. This affects our immune system, causes tiredness, severe headaches, and many digestive problems.
