"5 Ways To Control Acidosis & To Alkalize Your Body!"

Today my friends I would like to discuss another health issue that is very common today, but yet many people are not aware of, which is called Acidosis. This can become a dangerous condition that weakens all the body systems and its ability to resist disease. Acidosis, a medical condition that appears when your body pH is too acidic, falling below 7.35. It is measured on a scale of 0 to 14 the lower the pH the more acidic the solution, the higher the pH the more alkaline (or base) the solution. When a solution is neither acid nor alkaline it has a pH of 7 which is neutral. When acidosis occurs it gives rise to an internal environment allowing disease to invade our bodies, as opposed to a pH-balanced environment which allows normal body function necessary for the body to resist disease. It is important to understand that we are not talking about stomach acid or the pH of the stomach. We are talking about the pH of the bodys fluids and tissues which is an entirely different matter. This imbalance reduces our bodys ability to absorb minerals and nutrients, reduces the cells capacity to repair itself, and prevents the body from detoxing naturally. This affects every function of the bo Continue reading >>

    Keto while nursing?

    Hey fitnessman, is it a good idea to try a keto diet while nursing?, I have a friend that just had a baby and she would like to try keto to lose the "baby" fat. thanks for your help

  2. fitforlife

    I am not fitnessman, and probably will get jumped on for this, but I would say DEFINETLY NOT!!!!! Keto is a GREAT fat loss program, but it does deny you of some vitamins and minerals, even if you do take multi-vitamins and eat vegis, that your baby MUST have. I would tell her just to eat healthy and reasonable proportions and to exercise. That baby is taking a LOT out of her that she doesnt realize. Shoot, nursing a baby burns about 500 calories extra a day for women. I learned a lot about breast feeding because my wife just had a baby and we went to all these pre-baby classes.

    That I'd jump you on this one
    A quick story. Well over 5 years ago the first I even heard of a high fat diet was from my wife. Being a nutritionist, I thought the diet was just plain silly. Also being a diet researcher at jeart, I set out to prove that the crap she trying was wrong.
    Well guess who was wrong?....ME! 5 years later the rest is hisorty. I have become a ketogenic diet guru to many. Just a story for ya all.
    Now on with the meat. All of my children have been breast fed. So Survivn, kudos to your friend for breasting! That is how babies were designed to eat. There still are 100's of componetes in breast milk that researchers cant even identify.
    My wife loves the Ketogenic lifestlye. While pregnant she does not do the diet due to such really odd cravings(nor would I stand in her way). Our last two children had been fed from her while being on the diet. She has found that the milk production is greater and has less trouble expressing milk than with the older ones, when she was on a carb based diet.
    The big key here while breast feeding(with any diet) is to take into account that more calories are needed for the milk production. How many really depends on metabolism. For my wife it works out to 13 or so per pound of TOTAL bodyweight.
    She will get plently of nutrients from the green veggies and low GI fruits in the diet.
    So yes, it is fine to breast feed on a ketogenic diet. You MUST eat greens and some low GI fruits.
    Also keep in mind that the female body will not release fat very well while breast feeding. HOWEVER the over all health and well being of the mother and baby will be much better. Not to fret the slow fat loss, because after the baby is weened(about 18 months) her metabolism will be already amped and ready to go!
    I have #6 coming in Dec. I can guarantee you my wife will be on a ketogenic diet. She is already looking forward to it!
    Have her pick up Protein Powers Lifesplan by the Eades doctors, this is a perfect diet for a lactating female.

Metabolic Acidosis Treatment & Management: Approach Considerations, Type 1 Renal Tubular Acidosis, Type 2 Renal Tubular Acidosis

Metabolic AcidosisTreatment & Management Author: Christie P Thomas, MBBS, FRCP, FASN, FAHA; Chief Editor: Vecihi Batuman, MD, FASN more... Treatment of acute metabolic acidosis by alkali therapy is usually indicated to raise and maintain the plasma pH to greater than 7.20. In the following two circumstances this is particularly important. When the serum pH is below 7.20, a continued fall in the serum HCO3- level may result in a significant drop in pH. This is especially true when the PCO2 is close to the lower limit of compensation, which in an otherwise healthy young individual is approximately 15 mm Hg. With increasing age and other complicating illnesses, the limit of compensation is likely to be less. A further small drop in HCO3- at this point thus is not matched by a corresponding fall in PaCO2, and rapid decompensation can occur. For example, in a patient with metabolic acidosis with a serum HCO3- level of 9 mEq/L and a maximally compensated PCO2 of 20 mm Hg, a drop in the serum HCO3- level to 7 mEq/L results in a change in pH from 7.28 to 7.16. A second situation in which HCO3- correction should be considered is in well-compensated metabolic acidosis with impending respira Continue reading >>

    Can someone very generally describe how the brain consumes ketoacids/ketone bodies when blood glucose has been completely depleted?

  2. Jayachandran

    Human body is a glucose driven machine which intake carbohydrates and converts to glucose. Energy is yielded from the glucose and glucose is stored as glycogen. When the carbohydrate intake is somehow reduced then body will shift its mechanism and uses the fatty acids to produce energy. Liver synthesis ketones from fatty acids in our diet or from body fat. Ketones(acetoacetate and acetone) are released into the blood, which is absorbed by the brain and synthesis energy from it through their mitochondria.
    The brain gets a portion of 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 has an obligatory requirement for some glucose. 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). Furthermore, ketones produced from omega-3 fatty acids may reduce cognitive deterioration in old age. Reference
    When the body starts using the fatty acids for energy production, one problem arises in the brain and that is the blood-brain barrier( barrier that separates the circulating blood from the brain extracellular fluid in the central nervous system )Brain cannot use long chain fatty acids because they cannot cross the blood-brain barrier due to their bondage with albumin. As ketones are medium chain fatty acids which can effectively cross the barrier. So brain uses the ketones for energy production by a process called as ketosis. The ketone bodies are then incorporated into acetyl-CoA and used in the citric acid cycle.
    The citric acid cycle – also known as the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle or the Krebs cycle – is a series of chemical reactions used by all aerobic organisms to generate energy through the oxidation of acetate derived from carbohydrates, fats and proteins into carbon dioxide and chemical energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP).

    Actually there is fatty acid transport through the BBB. Maybe the rate of this transport is not enough, I don't know, I think it does not really matter.
    What really happens here, that the liver prepares the fatty acids, so the brain can use them more easily in the form of ketoacids to produce energy.

Lactic Acidosis Treatment & Management: Approach Considerations, Sodium Bicarbonate, Tromethamine

Author: Kyle J Gunnerson, MD; Chief Editor: Michael R Pinsky, MD, CM, Dr(HC), FCCP, MCCM more... Treatment is directed towards correcting the underlying cause of lactic acidosis and optimizing tissue oxygen delivery. The former is addressed by various therapies, including administration of appropriate antibiotics, surgical drainage and debridement of a septic focus, chemotherapy of malignant disorders, discontinuation of causative drugs, and dietary modification in certain types of congenital lactate acidosis. Cardiovascular collapse secondary to hypovolemia or sepsis should be treated with fluid replacement. Both crystalloids and colloids can restore intravascular volume, but hydroxyethyl starch solutions should be avoided owing to increased mortality. [ 21 ] Excessive normal saline administration can cause a nongap metabolic acidosis due to hyperchloremia, which has been associated with increased acute kidney injury. [ 32 ] Balanced salt solutions such as Ringer lactate and Plasma-Lyte will not cause a nongap metabolic acidosis and may reduce the need for renal replacement therapy; however, these can cause a metabolic alkalosis.

    From askscience:
    Is the science behind the keto diet real?
    Here's a lit review (a study that summarizes multiple other studies) from the Journal of Nutrition and Clinical Practice.
    Low-Carbohydrate Diet Review : Shifting the Paradigm.
    The science is "real" if by real you mean valid. Without carbs you switch into ketosis and while in ketosis you burn fat. There are drawbacks though and these keep a lot of people from doing it long term. Also if you frequent r/keto (or many of the other keto sites) you should be extremely wary as lots of pseudoscience and anecdotes get perpetuated as facts. Long-term it isn't any worse than whats typically referred to as the "standard american diet" and, according to the review, does better than fat-restricted diets on many measures.
    The degree to which its better depends a lot on what metrics you're using to measure it. There probably isn't one "healthiest" diet so just because it works at burning fats and has some benefits - don't take "carbs are inherently evil" as a dogmatic stance.
    That said, most aspects of the diet are pretty well-characterized scientifically.

    I think the effectiveness of the diet seems fairly sound, but there are a lot of health risks associated with the diet that one should really keep an eye on with their physician. The problem really comes from most people doing the diet without being in contact with their physician to monitor those risks.
