Narelle Blakeman Positive HealthMy name is Narelle Blakeman and I have completed studies to qualify as a Kinesiologist.  I own and operate Positive Health Australia, and have a passion for achieving optimum health through focussing on balancing pH and re-mineralising/nourishing bodies to heal, maintain and enhance health.

pH is the way fluids are measured for acidity or alkalinity.  On the pH scale of one to fourteen, one being most acidic and 14 being most alkaline; water is neutral at 7.0.and our blood is 7.4, in other words, slightly alkaline.  The body’s effort to maintain a blood pH of 7.4 overrides just about every other function.

“The kidneys are responsible for fluid balance and maintaining a relatively neutral pH in the body …

When acid-yielding foods lower the body’s pH, the kidneys co-ordinate efforts to buffer that acidity.  Bones release calcium and magnesium to re-establish alkalinity, and muscles are broken down to produce ammonia, which is strongly alkaline. By the time that the body’s response to acidity in the blood is finished, and the pH of 7.4 (very slightly alkaline) has been restored, some bone and some muscle has been used, so you have a little less of each. The kidneys excrete the debris in your urine.

You now have less bone, and less muscle; but the body has been saved/protected from various bad effects caused by acidity in the blood.  Medical textbooks will give you details on these effects, and it isn’t pleasant reading.

We can control the acid/alkaline balance in our bodies by what we eat and drink;  ideally we are aiming to balance between alkaline-yielding foods and acid-yielding foods

The practices and products I suggest are ones of which I have researched, have personal experience of and know to work.

My aim is to promote true health and well-being which enables you to lead a more fulfilling and better quality of life on every level – physically, mentally, and spiritually.

I look forward to being of assistance in your progress towards better eating and optimum health.
