The majority of metabolic processes in our body tends to produce acidic substances. Precisely for this reason, there are numerous systems able to neutralize acidic materials in order to maintain the homeostasis of pH. Blood has a substantially constant pH of about 7.35-7.45.
At the tissue level, pH tends to vary depending on the metabolic cell. For example, in the case of inflammation, we will find a slightly acidic pH; while in well-oxygenated tissue, we will have a neutral-alkaline pH.
An acid fabric, such as the context of chronic inflammation, has very different characteristics from the mobile phone that characterizes the alkaline environment. It tends to be poor in oxygen and specializes in the production of energy (ATP), mainly from glucose.
However, nutrition plays an important role in the acid-base balance. There are, in fact, foods whose metabolism tend to produce alkaline substances and other foods that tend to be transformed into acidic substances. For example, meat tends to be acidic, while fruits and vegetables tend to be alkaline.
How does it work?
Alkalizing infusion therapy is based on the administration of saline, bicarbonate and procaine. Bicarbonate has the purpose of preserving alkaline stocks (buffer function), recharging the tissue reserves of alkalizing substances, and thus favouring the normal acid-base homeostasis.
Procaine has the aim of improving the circulation and to allow microcirculation (small arteries that carry oxygen to the tissue).
When is this treatment prescribed?
This therapy is used in numerous cases:
How many sessions are needed?
Usually five weekly cycles are needed.
