Why You Should Lower Carbohydrates Consumption

carbohydratesNature designed three life-systems to prevent any of the so-called “problems” with which the high-carbohydrate promoters continue to scare people: circulatory blood pH buffering system, respiratory system and renal (excretory) system. More often, there is a lack of insight by nutritionists into how the various life-systems work together.

Before ketosis could become a major problem or could lead into an extreme ketosis case (which is ketoacidosis), whereby low-blood pH would cause severe complications. Your respiration would have to increase to almost double your normal rate.

In order for the circulatory buffer system to work properly, sufficient salt is required. Salt is needed for the proper functioning of the circulatory buffer system. Lack of salt to or due to the reduction of dietary salt, the critical life-system is compromised and unable to do its job. Restriction of salt intake results to lack of sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) in the body. Salt doesn’t raise blood pressure, and we have been misled into believing to this! Instead of consuming carbohydrates, proper diet is required in order for our body to function well. Our body needs salt, protein and PEOs or foods that contain enough PEOs in order to produce the needed essential fats or EFAs.

The renal system automatically responds to what you eat and stabilizes your system’s pH (similar to increased breathing when exercising to increase oxygen). Protein does not cause kidney failure, it’s the high carbohydrates consumption is likely the culprit. Unless you are eating too many carbohydrates and have a diabetic glucose level, a normally functioning kidney repels excess protein in the blood.
