The pH (acid/alkaline balance) of the body is only regulated by minerals. When not enough alkaline minerals are entering into our biology, bones potentially become a source to maintain blood pH. Demineralisation is a common problem in western civilisation particularly since industrialisation. A fully charged “battery” as per illustration is the ideal place to be to maintain normal homeostatic function. This is poorly understood by the lay population and consequently is becoming a major issue with a host of illnesses arising due to this latent acidosis or even compensated acidosis. One sure way to help rectify this issue is re-mineralisation. Check with your naturopathic practitioner to see what is the best approach for you.
