Metabolic Acidosisget-attachment.aspx

The most common disorder in acid-base homeostasis is acidosis, which means an acid overload in the body, or holding to much ash in the tissues, generally defined by pH falling below 7, our blood must maintain higher that 7.24 to 7.45 (balance 7.365) if the blood pH rises above 7.5, alkalosis occurs, if your blood drops below 7.2 or above 7.8 death can occur. PH (potential of freeing Hydrogen Ions) is a measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a solution, or simply put it is the difference of the ability to free hydrogen ions. The PH measures the amount of oxygen in your blood, when the blood is too acid it will not carry enough oxygen and electrical pulses to communicate to other cells to program new cells and tissues to dictate their function through the blood and to alkaline it carries to much oxygen. A healthy body should maintain a metabolic pH of 7 and its blood at 7.35, since virus, bacteria, cancer, germs etc. feed off an acid state (anaerobic state – through beta-oxidation), it is stated no disease can exist in an alkaline (high oxidation) environment so acidosis is the main cause maintaining and starting of a disease. When the body is in a low pH or below 5.5 enzymes and vitamins become inactive and can be denatured. If proteins in a living cell are denatured, this results in disruption of cell activity and possibly cell death, one of the main causes of cancer and tumors etc.. Since Aloe Ferox is a very powerful bitter herb which is very alkaline it rids the body of the acid ash and restores mineral alkalinity.

A rise in lactate out of proportion to the level of pyruvate, e.g., in mixed venous blood, is termed “excess lactate”, and may also be an indicator of fermentation due to anaerobic metabolism occurring in muscle cells, as seen during strenuous exercise (or no exercise, low oxygen flow, clogged capillaries). Once oxygenation is restored, the acidosis clears quickly. Another example of increased production of acids occurs in starvation and diabetic acidosis. It is due to the accumulation of ketoacids (ketosis) and reflects a severe shift from glycolysis to lipolysis (fat or beta-oxidation) for energy needs.
Respiratory Acidosis

Respiratory Acidosis

Respiratory acidosis results from a build-up of carbon dioxide in the blood (hypercapnia) due to hypoventilation (Or Athletic Asthma) during exercise or the lack their of. If mucus is being formed in the lungs the body begins to cough to expel the excess mucus protecting the body from inflammatory condition, the excess fibrin (blood protein release). This is from a severe lack of Potassium (chloride) which keeps fibrin in solution. If compensatory mechanisms will be unable to reverse this acidotic condition as metabolic bicarbonate (potassium) production becomes exhausted, and extraneous bicarbonate infusion can no longer reverse the extreme buildup of carbon dioxide associated with uncompensated respiratory acidosis. Also it is most often caused by pulmonary problems, although head injuries, drugs (especially anesthetics and sedatives), and brain tumors can cause this acidemia. Pneumothorax, emphysema, chronic bronchitis, asthma, severe pneumonia, and aspiration are among the most frequent causes. It can also occur as a compensatory response to chronic metabolic alkalosis.
