New for 2017: acid-base balance programme
Doctor Philippe Guérin explains the importance of maintaining your body’s aci-base balance.

ACID-BASE BALANCE

Our ancestors had a much healthier diet. Unfortunately our modern lifestyle encourages us to eat fatty foods and foods rich in animal proteins, with more salt and sugar, which acidify our organism. Our body is constantly looking for a balance, whether physical balance, psychological balance, or metabolic balance. 

  • walking is the balance between the top and bottom of our body, between the movement of the upper and lower members, right and left ;
  • the psyche is the balance of our moods between the everyday ups and downs, the balance between more and less, between the yin and the yang ;
  • metabolic balance is, among others, the search for stability between our body's acidity and alkalinity. It is measured in terms of pH, potential of hydrogen, a figure expressing the acidity or alkalinity of a solution. Normal blood pH is tightly regulated between 7.35 and 7.45, and healthy urine pH levels, which are easy to measure, must remain between 6.5 and 7.5.

THE ACIDIFCATION OF THE HUMAN ORGANISM IS A MAJOR HEALTH PROBLEM

The human organism has a tendency towards acidity, a fact which is regularly aggravated by our diet. Re-establishing the body's acid-base balance also means increasing energy and vitality and helps prevent a large number of illnesses.

Fortunately the human organism has developed efficient systems to regulate this balance: 

  • a buffer system which absorbs and neutralises acidity then sends it to the organs responsible for elimination: this is carried out using bicarbonates, haemoglobin and calcium salts ;
  • an elimination system represented by the lungs for 75% and the kidneys for 25%.

Our diet must actively participate to relieve the efforts made by our organism by reducing acidifying foods such as fatty foods, sugar and meat, and increasing intake of more alkaline foods such as cereals, fruit and vegetables.  We all know that it is recommended that we eat at least 5 fruit and vegetables every day and that we should eat less salty foods, sugary foods and fatty foods, and drink a one and a half litres of water each day.

The bicarbonated waters in Vichy, including Vichy Célestins mineral water, are all alkaline waters. They make a major contribution to the fight against acidity and prevent any ensuing metabolic disorders and illnesses. In fact a bad diet is an open invitation to what are called civilisation disorders, such as obesity, diabetes, cardio vascular disease, certain cancers, arthritis, and osteoporosis etc.

Food accompanied by Vichy mineral water, therefore, becomes a therapeutic tool in its own right. A good diet must not only cover nutritional needs but also guarantee the stability of the major metabolic balances which are the basis of good health, like acid-base balance.
