What makes the body high alkaline? Could this be the lack of bicaronate to balance things out?
Cindy: It is either too much or too little of certain minerals. Ascorbic acid, phosphates, iodine, for example will help. Taking some baking soda will help buffer things out, but it is necessary that the dose for this issue be 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda plus 1/4 teaspoon of citric acid. It will at least remove certain offending metals. It is the lack of stomach acids, lack of chlorides, lack of iodine, phosphates, and sulfates. It is too much of certain alkaline forming heavy metals such as rubidium, cesium, calcium, magnesium, barium, beryllium, strontium, potassium, sodium, lithium, for example.
The easiest way is to get some hair mineral analysis and find the offending metals, or get urine mineral analysis to see what the body is dumping. In certain instance heavy metal toxicity can bought about very high alkaline conditions or very high acid conditions. In which case if that is true, oral disodium EDTA, where 1/8 teaspoon is mixed in 1 liter of water should help remove whatever free radical metals that are present in some instances.
Usually eating bread and meats will often quickly raise the pH. However, I cannot answer more than this since I have no idea at all what is your dietary habits, which I cannot conclude much. It must be noted that taking certain doctors meds can also cause very high alkaline or even acid conditions too.
