Even fad diets are partly to blame, for introducing a whole new eating habit, such as high-protein diets. In the recent years, consumption of animal products and refined food items has increased, as more and more people leave out the daily supply of fruits and vegetables in their diet. Alkaline Diet Meal Plan - It comes as no surprise why, these days, many are suffering from different types of allergies, bone diseases, heart problems and many others. Some health experts link these diseases to the type of foods we eat. There are certain types of food that disrupts a certain balance in our body that, during such instance, health problems arise. If only we could modify our eating habits, its not unlikely that prevention of diseases and restoration of health is achieved. The Importance of Alkaline Our bodies need to maintain a healthy and steady alkaline to acid ratio, which is signified by the pH level of our body. The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14, and anything lower than 7 is considered acidic. Processed food items, meat and meat products, sweets, and some beverages and condiments generally produce excessive amounts of acidity in the body. Alkaline Diet Meal Plan - Acidosis, abnormally high acidity level in the blood and other tissues of the body, is the one thing that several different diseases have one thing in common. And many health experts believe that acidosis is responsible for a lot of fatal diseases that many people are afflicted with these days.

What Is Acidosis? Acidosis Causes & Treatment | High Alkaline Diet

DEFINITION: Acidosis is an increased acidity in the blood and other body tissue. Acidosis is said to occur when arterial pH falls below 7.35. The pH level of our blood affects every cell in our body. Chronic acidosis corrodes body tissue, and if left unchecked, will interrupt all cellular activities and functions. HIGH ACID-FORMING FOODS and DIETS all lead to ACIDOSIS. Living a fast-paced daily lifestyle, such as eating on the run, will lead people to face constant symptoms of indigestion and growing endangerment of over-acidification (Acidosis) of the body cells, which will interrupt cellular activities and functions. It is a major root of sickness and disease. Having our cells constantly exposed to an acidic environment leads to acidosis and then chronic acidosis and, finally, various forms of disease such as cancer and many more! Studies have shown that an acidic, anaerobic (which is also the lack of oxygen) body environment encourages the breeding of fungus, mold, bacteria, and viruses. As a result, our inner biological terrain shifts from a healthy oxygenated, alkaline environment to an unhealthy acidic one (acidic pH scale). This forces the body to constantly deplete its cel Continue reading >>

    > Bladder Pain and Ketosis

    I dont know if I am imagining this or not but, but everytime I go into Ketosis, my bladder seems to hurt. Does anyone know if bladder pain can be a symptom of ketosis?? I have bladder pain and some burning sensations when I pee (I know this is a symptom of bladder infection too, but it seems to come and go with ketosis)

    Is it possible that you're reading a strong positive for ketosis partially because you're not drinking enough?

    Well, I googled 'bladder pain and ketosis' and came across this blurb..
    Ketosis is a metabolic state in which the body produces ketones to be used as fuel by some organs so that glycogen can be reserved for organs that depend on it. It is important when looking for information on ketosis that it is not confused for ketoacidosis - a very unhealthy state of being. It is unfortunately all too common for information sources to conflate these two and thus pronounce ketosis as bad.
    Because glucose is commonly accepted as the body's primary fuel source, putting the body into a state where burning something other than glucose for fuel is subsequently regarded as a form of starvation. Yet, the human body has a well-defined mechanism for literally burning fat for fuel (I think it's important to realize that even in the presence of glucose, some tissues in the human body still prefer to use fat for fuel. Ironically, the heart is one of those, despite the fact that the intended purpose of low-fat diets is to save your heart). When the body uses fat as energy, it's in a state of ketosis.
    When you stop eating glucose (ie: carbohydrates), your body begins the process of ketosis. In ketosis, the liver starts unpacking fat cells so that your body can use the fatty acids for fuel. It also produces ketone bodies, which the body also uses for fuel - especially the brain. The benefits of ketosis are numerous - lowered blood pressure, lower cholesterol, low triglycerides, improved insulin sensitivity, and weight loss without regard to calorie count. Other reported benefits are common - lack of hunger, lack of cravings, improved mood, lessened anxiety, and greater mental concentration. Variations on ketogenic diets are used to control various medical conditions including acne, heartburn and acid reflux, thyroid problems, epilepsy, and type 2 diabetes.
    Negative side effects of a ketogenic diet include light-headedness, headache, lethargy, weakness, feeling cold, diarrhea, and nausea. These side effects are only temporary and go away once the body has fully made the switch from burning glucose to burning fat (within the first week). They are almost universally acknowleged as symptoms of withdrawal from sugar.
    The body is very capable of regulating ketone bodies, so unless there is a major problem (Alcoholics and type 1 diabetics often have problems with ketone regulation), you should be just fine. For those people who do have a major problem, however, they can develop ketoacidosis. Essentially, their bodies no longer regulate the ketones in their blood, and they start building up. The more they build up, the more they change the acidity of the blood in your body, and that's very dangerous. The complications of ketoacidosis include halitosis, extreme thirst, frequent urination, contant fatigue, dry skin, abdominal pain, difficulty breathing, and mental confusion.
    If you're looking to lose weight without eating less, improve your mood and mental acuity, or even to solve some common health issues like acne or acid reflux, a ketogenic diet (also called a homeostatic diet) may be exactly the right tool for you. Just keep an eye out for the symptoms of ketoacidosis, and you should have no problems at all once you get past those nasty withdrawal symptoms.

Metabolic Acidosis

Practice Essentials Metabolic acidosis is a clinical disturbance characterized by an increase in plasma acidity. Metabolic acidosis should be considered a sign of an underlying disease process. Identification of this underlying condition is essential to initiate appropriate therapy. (See Etiology, DDx, Workup, and Treatment.) Understanding the regulation of acid-base balance requires appreciation of the fundamental definitions and principles underlying this complex physiologic process. Go to Pediatric Metabolic Acidosis and Emergent Management of Metabolic Acidosis for complete information on those topics. Continue reading >>

    I have a friend. I noticed while kissing him last night that, a few different times, I noticed a very distinctive acetone smell/taste on his breath.
    While most assuredly an alcoholic, he's never been one in a point of desperation to the point of, say, drinking IPA or something. He drinks beer, and only the same kind of beer (no mixing brands or anything).
    My (limited) research shows that acetone is a metabolic byproduct of drinking IPA (uh, meaning isopropyl alcohol, you know, rubbing alcohol - not a nice IPA beer, hahaha), but haven't really noticed anything about ethyl alcohol/ethanol & acetone production.
    Does anyone know anything about why this might be? He's not a huge guy, so it's good he sticks to beer, but can easily (& somewhat often does) get fucked up to the point of being incomprehensible.
    A potentially important point to note is that he is on some *serious* antibiotics. Like, some hardcore, there aren't things much stronger, antibiotics. He has some kind of bone infection or something that they're trying to keep under control with the meds for as long as they can. I don't know if something like that could be affecting the way he processes the alcohol?? Maybe?
    No known immune system issues (barring any that could come from the bone thingy & antibiotics). No other illicit drugs other than cannabis is being consumed, the only other drugs are the aforementioned ABs.
    I really like this guy, and it's worrisome to me to notice this (not to mention it kinda tastes weird, hahaha). I know alcohol isn't good for you, and as an alcoholic he probably has all kinds of liver damage (or will soon), but I'm just worried that there is *extra* damage being done, since he is burning off acetone when he's drinking.
    Thanks in advance for ANY help anyone can provide, even if it's just better search terms to try or other websites to read...ANYTHING would be helpful, please!!

    Interesting question, the thing that instantly sprung to mind when you mentioned the Acetone smell is Ketosis, which in case you didn't know is a process of the body when you starve it of carbs (like when you're on the atkins diet). It creates a sickly sweet solvent taste very similar to Acetone in my opinion.
    Alcohol contains sugar, and so carbs, but maybe if he has a low carb diet, combined with tolerance to huge amounts of sugar from daily binge drinking, that would possibly allow his body to be in a state of ketosis.
    It's a long shot but it's the only explanation I can think of other than it just being a direct effect of the antibiotics, many can do odd things like change the colour of your pee or sweat etc... so why not breath?
    I can't remember the name, but there's one antibiotic that makes your TEARS turn red lol. So I'd guess it's highly possible that one could alter a persons breath!
    Edit: I need to learn to read things twice when I'm spun. The part about Acetone being a bi-product of IPA totally went in and out lol. I'll have a look, see if I find anything.

    Ketone bodies
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Ketone bodies are three water-soluble compounds that are produced as by-products when fatty acids are broken down for energy in the liver and kidney. They are used as a source of energy in the heart and brain. In the brain, they are a vital source of energy during fasting. Although termed "bodies", they are dissolved substances, not particles.
    The three endogenous ketone bodies are acetone, acetoacetic acid, and beta-hydroxybutyric acid, although beta-hydroxybutyric acid is not technically a ketone but a carboxylic acid. Other ketone bodies such as beta-ketopentanoate and beta-hydroxypentanoate may be created as a result of the metabolism of synthetic triglycerides such as triheptanoin.
    Uses in the heart and brain
    Ketone bodies can be used for energy. Ketone bodies are transported from the liver to other tissues, where acetoacetate and beta-hydroxybutyrate can be reconverted to acetyl-CoA to produce energy, via the citric acid cycle.
    The heart gets little energy from ketone bodies except under special circumstances; it uses mainly fatty acids.
    The brain gets its energy from ketone bodies when glucose is less available (e.g., during fasting, strenuous exercise, low carbohydrate, ketogenic diet and in neonates). In the event of low blood glucose, most other tissues have additional energy sources besides ketone bodies (such as fatty acids), but the brain does not. After the diet has been changed to lower blood glucose for 3 days, the brain gets 25% of its energy from ketone bodies. After about 4 days, this goes up to 70% (during the initial stages the brain does not burn ketones, since they are an important substrate for lipid synthesis in the brain).
    Ketone bodies are produced from acetyl-CoA (see ketogenesis) mainly in the mitochondrial matrix of hepatocytes when carbohydrates are so scarce that energy must be obtained from breaking down fatty acids. Because of the high level of acetyl CoA present in the cell, the pyruvate dehydrogenase complex is inhibited, whereas pyruvate carboxylase becomes activated. Thus, the oxaloacetate produced will enter gluconeogenesis rather than the citric acid cycle, as the latter is also inhibited by the elevated level of NADH resulting from ß-oxidation of fatty acids. The excess acetyl-CoA is therefore rerouted to ketogenesis. Such a state in humans is referred to as the fasted state.
    Acetone is produced by spontaneous decarboxylation of acetoacetate, yielding levels of acetone much lower than those of other ketone bodies. Acetone cannot be converted back to acetyl-CoA, so it is excreted in the urine, or (as a consequence of its high vapor pressure) exhaled. Acetone is responsible for the characteristic "fruity" odor of the breath of persons in ketoacidosis.

    I guess you don't have too much to worry about (other than the obvious issues of alcoholism), as it's a naturally occurring thing.

Acidosis Symptoms | Symptoms of Acidosis Contact Info: Rich Adams Direct Phone: 262-353-5665 Website: www.2berich.enagicweb.net Email: [email protected] To share this video, click here: http://youtu.be/A37e9tPv1kA Are you concerned about Symptoms of Acidosis? Do you want to know what the Acidosis Symptoms are? There are seven prevalent Acidosis Symptoms. You may display or experience some or all of these Acidosis Symptoms. Before we can understand Acidosis Symptoms, we must first know what acidosis is and second, we must know what causes acidosis! So what is acidosis? Acidosis is an increased acidity in the blood and other body tissue (i.e. an increased hydrogen ion concentration). If not further qualified, it usually refers to acidity of the blood plasma or metabolic acidosis. Acidosis is said to occur when arterial pH (potential hydrogen) falls below 7.35 (except in the fetus). Normal pH range is 7.35 to 7.45 for humans. The term acidemia describes the state of low blood pH, while acidosis is used to describe the processes leading to these states, i.e. the seven acidosis symptoms or stages. The kidneys and lungs maintain the balance (proper pH level) of chemicals called acids and bases in the body. Acidosis occurs when acid builds up or when bicarbonate (a base) is lost. What causes acidosis? The causes for acidosis can be many. Acidosis can be caused by physiological problems like asthma, deformed chest cavity, obesity, problems with the nervous system, kidney failure, and other such physical conditions. Typically however, acidosis is most commonly caused by drinking alcohol, drinking wine, beer or soda, having a high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet, dehydration, or not drinking enough of the right water, prescription drugs and OTC drugs like aspirin, Aleave, etc. All of these are highly acidic and create and acidic environment in your body in which disease, illness, and cancer can thrive! Acidosis Symptoms. Acidosis Symptoms typically manifest themselves in 7 stages and are listed below: Acidosis Symptoms 1. Tired or lethargic Acidosis Symptoms 2. Irritation of the skin, allergies, acne, psoriasis, rashes, etc. Acidosis Symptoms 3. The formation of mucus in your throat. Acidosis Symptoms 4. Inflammation, arthritis, rheumatism, bursitis, gout, etc. Acidosis Symptoms 5. Solidification - Acid waste buildup in your arteries which results in high cholesterol. Acidosis Symptoms 6. Ulceration Acidosis Symptoms 7. Degenerative diseases, cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, kidney stones. So what can you do about acidosis and the Symptoms of Acidosis? First of all, you can change your diet to include more alkaline food. You can eliminate soda from your diet as soda is extremely acidic! It takes 32 cups of alkaline water to neutralize the acid in 1 cup of soda!!! You can also try to eliminate many OTC medications as they create an acidic environment in your body. Once you start the conversion from acidic to alkaline in your body, your body will be better able to fight illness and disease on its own! 00:02 Acidosis Symptoms Introduction 00:11 Acidosis Symptoms Stage One 00:39 Acidosis Symptoms Stage Two 01:06 Acidosis Symptoms Stage Three 01:20 Acidosis Symptoms Stage Four 01:36 Acidosis Symptoms Stage Five 01:53 Acidosis Symptoms Stage Six 02:12 Acidosis Symptoms Stage Seven Reference: The pH Miracle by Dr. Robert Young M.D.

Symptoms Of Acidosis And Their Affect On The Human Body

Symptoms of acidosis can be alarming for any person who is unaware of its existence in their body or do not understand the disorder. The symptoms of acidosis can be different depend on its cause. Acidosis disrupts proper cellular function and activity, leading to various disease and sickness. Common causes of acidosis include an existence of an underlying illness, diabetes, smoking, poor diet, kidney disorders, genetic factors or excessive use of alcohol. Technically, acidosis is defined as an increase of hydrogen ion concentration at the cellular level. This in due course leads to acidity of blood plasma. Acidosis is usually diagnosed when the blood pH of an individual falls below 7.35. To determine the cause of acidosis, an arterial blood gas analysis is required. There are two types of acidosis- metabolic and respiratory. Respiratory acidosis is caused when the lungs become incapable of getting rid of carbon dioxide by themselves. Metabolic acidosis occurs due to the failure of the kidneys to eliminate enough acid from the body. Primary Symptoms of Acidosis Regardless of whether you are suffering from metabolic or respiratory acidosis, symptoms of acidosis are usually similar. T Continue reading >>
