Signs Your pH Balance is Off
What are the signs your pH balance is off? Your family suggests that you star in a deodorantcommercial, and you've never considered acting before. You think that if your pH is off, you smellbad. It is responsible for vaginal odor, thoughironically, the douching a lot of women do throws off the pH balance, causing the odor. But you want to kill the germs there thatcause odor. The douching kills yeast that maintain a properbalance and protection against some infections.
Though if you have an STD, douching reducessome of the irritation and flushes out mucus, though doing nothing to cure the infection. I've heard of people eating weird stuffto get back in balance. In the case of a vaginal yeast infection,eating yogurt is a good treatment. For bad smelling body odor, you could help it justby laying off the pickles. That'll help your stomach, too. If you're eating a lot of acidic foods,a spoonful of baking soda is a natural way to restore pH.
And brushing your teeth with it removes alot of bacteria while improving your breath. What causes bad pH levels in people? Infections,diet, environment? We aren't all water, so our normal pH isbetween 6.0 and 6.8. It shifts a little acidic because things like stomach acid have a pHof 2.0. I've heard that you can have too high anacidity. Stomach acid reducers are an option to helpwith that. But holistic stuff like dieting and colon cleansing are a bad idea. What does help?
Dietary changes can help, like drinking lessalcohol or coffee or meat or sauerkraut if your body is too acidic. If you manage tohave too little acid, food like honey, raisins, molasses and avocados help. I don't want to have to worry about managingbody pH in addition to proper nutrition. Your body does a good job of that on its ownunless you're really sick, like with a thyroid condition. But too much of a particular substancelike alcohol can throw it off.
