Regulation and management of local acidity in ZRT®-Matrix-Therapy

In general practice at the moment, only a little attention is paid to the regulation of the acid-base balance (bases can be thought of as the chemical opposite of acids). A reaction between an acid and base is called neutralisation.The organism is dependent in all areas on a balance of acids and bases so that the level of acid does not become too high.

Latent acidosis of the extracellular matrix (ECM) plays a major role in a number of chronic diseases. An acid-heavy diet is not the only cause. Our cells also produce lasting acids, such as carbonic acid, uric acid and lactic acid. An oxygen deficiency can also contribute to latent acidosis.

Local acidosis occurs in the tissue in vasoconstriction, in tense muscles, where there is swelling and inflammation. This is local acidification in it’s simplest form. We feel this acidification via nociceptors as pain (A nociceptor is a sensory receptor found in the ECM that responds to potentially damaging stimuli by sending nerve signals to the spinal cord and brain). This process is called nociception.

Pain occurs as a warning signal of an imbalance in the acid-base ratio in the tissue concerned.

The prevention or limitation of tissue acidosis is a necessary and useful therapeutic measure. Therefore, hydrotherapy treatments that regulate the pH value, such as base wraps, warm baths, and balneological (mineral bath) treatments may be advised.

Other complementary measures such as a specific exercise regime, a basic diet and taking basic minerals as an infusion, are often recommended within the framework of a health consultation.

Self-healing can be effective only where a neutral pH or acid-base balance is achieved.
