Hello friends, this is Karen. I wanted to share some information about the acid alkaline diet. Our bodies naturally strive to keep us in a state of slightly alkaline.
When this environment is not provided our bodies draw upon nutrient reserves mainly in the bones. The average diet is overly acidic.
This is not a happy situation for the body, but a happy situation for illness. When the body is overly acidic it turns into an environment that encourages the breeding of fungus, mold, bacteria, and viruses."This forces the body to constantly deplete its cellular energy to neutralize and detoxify these acids before they can act as poisons in and around the cells, ultimately changing the environment of each cell and finally compromising its immune system leaving it vulnerable to the ravages of disease to take a foothold in the body.
When our body pH becomes overly acidic, it starts to set up defense mechanisms to keep the damaging acids from entering the vital organs." Acidalkalinediet.net Every step a person can take towards eating more fresh natural alkaline food is a step towards greater health in the now and in the long term. This doesn't mean you have to go extreme!!!
Take a look at your plate and see what adjustments you can make one at a time or more if you are inspired. In my opinion there is no absolute one size fits all diet, but there are certain laws all our bodies abide. Have fun experiment see what feels good and what feels not so good. Clean purified water, with lemon, a splash of raw apple cider vinegar, and a pinch of sea salt is a beautifully alkaline way to start the day. Mega high fives to you all on your journeys towards greater balance!
