Imbalanced pH by Dr. William Cowden – Cardiologist


WEIGHT-LOSS:
When the pH is either too acidic or too alkaline, the metabolic enzymes inside the cell do not work efficiently, which prevents the proper breakdown of fats, etc. For iodine absorption, the pH has to be almost perfect-between 6.3-6.6 so the thyroid can produce hormones.

CARDIOVASCULAR:

During conditions of excessive acidity or alkalinity, bacteria and/or fungi and/or viruses can attach themselves to the inner wall of arteries, which then attracts white blood cells, clotting proteins, etc. This can cause plaque to form in the arteries, causing narrowing and ultimately resulting in a heart attack. If excess acidity is present, calcium, which was mobilized out of the bone to buffer the acid, can deposit in the arterial plaque, thus converting the plaque from soft to hard. The plaque makes the arteries stiff, which can raise blood pressure. Read more….

The Nervous System
When brain cells are too acidic or too alkaline, they dysfunction, resulting in inability to produce the appropriate chemicals. This can result in insomnia, anxiety, depression, neuroses, psychoses and impairment of memory. Since the brain is supposed to communicate through the spinal cord and other nerves to every cell in the body (heart cells, intestinal cells, muscle cells, glandular cells, etc.), every body system can dysfunction if the nervous system does due to acid/alkaline imbalance.
