Chronic fatigue syndrome, also known as CFS, is a poorly understood medical condition that’s defined by debilitating muscular and psychological symptoms. Anyone suffering from CFS can experience a number of unpleasant side effects, but the condition most commonly manifests as sustained mental and physical exhaustion, crippling headaches and widespread muscle pain that’s unrelated to exertion and unaffected by rest.
For years, modern medicine has been struggling to explain chronic fatigue syndrome by connecting it to the improper expression of the genes that govern our immune systems, or linking it with an unlikely and uncommon reaction to commonplace infectious agents like the Epstein-Barr virus, which is generally known to cause only the mildest of illnesses.
There is, however, a much simpler explanation for the occurrence of CFS: According to Dr Robert Young, a leading nutritionist and author responsible for the critically acclaimed book The pH Miracle, says that ‘Chronic fatigue is probably a major symptom of an overly acidic body or a body overgrown with negative life-forms. Microforms ferment sugar in our bodies that we would otherwise use for energy (then, to add insult to injury, they spew out acid waste as a result). The toxins produced in an acidic body reduce the absorption of protein, minerals and other minerals which in turn weakens the body’s ability to produce enzymes and hormones and the hundreds of other chemical components necessary for cell energy and organ activity. This also interferes with the reconstruction of cells and other necessary components of energy production. The result is fatigue, poor endurance, an inability to add muscle tone and general weakness (as well as unwanted body weight changes and increased susceptibility to a variety of illnesses). The pancreas, liver and adrenal glands which play major roles in controlling energy levels are all susceptible to the negative effects of mycotoxins.’
According to Philip Day, a prominent medical researcher, The acidic compounds that cause our bodies to falter can, for the most part, be attributed to ‘a combination of poor diet and busy 21st Century lifestyles. Fizzy drinks, food saturated in sugar and caffeine-rich beverages in particular are responsible for depressing our immune systems and giving rise to a number of spin off conditions such as hypoglycemia, hypothyroidism food allergies and candida overgrowth, all of which can be connected to the larger, more overarching influence of chronic fatigue syndrome.’
Fighting The Source of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Once we’ve accepted that conditions like chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia are manifestations of excess acidity in our body tissues, we can begin working to balance our body chemistry, and start optimizing our pH balance, which will in turn allow us to begin fighting the debilitating effects of these diseases.
Perhaps the most expedient way of fighting an incorrect pH balance is to provide the body with all the beneficial alkaline minerals it needs to begin the healing process. Drinking alkaline antioxidant water and supplementing your diet with concentrated green superfoods that contain antioxidant compounds and alkaline minerals can play a key role in doing just this, and can also help to flush acidic and toxic waste products from our system.
How Can I make Alkaline Water?
Generally speaking, alkaline water is water with a pH level of 8 or 9 and antioxidant properties. Alkaline water is normally created when rivers or streams flow over rich mineral deposits, but modern technology has allowed us to mimic this natural miracle, and recreate alkaline water in the comfort of our own home.
This technology traditionally revolved around the use of expensive ionizing plates and complicated electrolysis reactions, but recent advances in bioceramic technology have made the production of alkaline water using natural mineral balls an affordable alternative.
Products like the Biocera Alkaline Jug allow you to turn ordinary tap water into beneficial, alkaline water without destroying it’s natural energy, or removing any healthy minerals. They are simple to use, and they can help to hydrate the body, and flush any harmful toxins from your system, as well as restoring order to your body’s biochemistry and helping to support your immune system.
