Treat Acidosis Naturally

Acidosis occurs when the kidneys and lungs are unable to keep the body’s pH in balance and too much acid is allowed to form in the body. Metabolic acidosis occurs when the kidneys are unable to get rid of acid and respiratory acidosis occurs when the lungs are unable to effectively rid the body of carbon dioxide. The body’s pH should be around 7.4 and a variation too far from this number can have a negative impact on your internal organs.

  • Rapid, shallow breathing

How can I treat an acidosis?

  • Take kelp supplements. Kelp helps to reduce acid and regain a good pH balance.
  • Increase your potassium. Potassium increases metabolism which helps to rebalance the body’s pH levels.

  • Make a ginger compress and apply it over the kidneys. This will help encourage them to filter out the acids.
