Acid-Base Balance and Health

Acid–base homeostasis is concerned with the balance between organic acids and base minerals (e.g. sodium, calcium, magnesium and potassium) to tightly regulate arterial blood pH between 7.38 and 7.42. Pre agricultural diets were mostly alkaline producing, while our modern diet is very acid producing. Consequently the base minerals from our modern diet are used for buffering organic acids, and are less available for biochemistry, leading to increasing the propensity towards a range of modern diseases.

This webinar presents the scientific evidence for the adverse effect of our modern diet on acid-base balance. The processes that lead to Irritable Bowel Syndrome and modern diseases, such as cancer, osteoporosis, arthritis and gout are discussed. Information is presented that will allow health professionals to be effective at addressing some of these dysfunctional processes and promote optimum physical and mental health.
