It is time to cleanse your body! You might like to check your ph balance to find out how acidic you are. At rest, the normal blood pH of a human being is slightly alkaline, with a pH around 7.4 on the pH scale. Anything above that value is considered alkaline; anything below is considered acidic.
According to Dr. Young, microbiologist and nutritionist, and author of several outstanding books, (e.g. ‘The pH Miracle’ or ‘The pH Miracle for Diabetes’), by consuming too many unhealthy, acid forming or acidic foods, the growth of harmful bacteria, fungus, yeast and other micro organism is promoted within our body, which may result in obesity (we create fat cells to carry acids away from our vital organs), allergies (the absorption of undigested proteins due to an overly acidic body is a major cause of allergy conditions), fatigue (an over-acidified body produces toxins and weakens the body’s ability to produces enzymes and hormones) and many other unhealthy conditions.
Studies have shown that an acidic, anaerobic (which is also the lack of oxygen) body environment encourages the breeding of fungus, mold, bacteria, and viruses. It is a lot of “hard work” for our body to neutralize and detoxify these acids before they can act as poisons in and around the cells, ultimately changing the environment of each cell.
So, what kinds of foods are alkaline? Many green vegetables! This is another reason why you need to eat GREENS. But surprisingly, the most alkalizing foods are Soy Lecithin (Pure) and Summer Black Radish. Wheat and alfalfa grasses areother highalikaline packed foods.
Experts believe that green plant pigment, chlorophyll is very important for our body. Chlorophyll is chemically similar in composition to that of human blood, except that the central atom in chlorophyll is magnesium, while iron is central in human blood. Because chlorophyll transforms sunlight into eatable energy , we “eat sunlight” when we eat salad, greens and vegetables.
I highly recommend that you cleanse your body with healthy alkaline foods this spring. You will become less irritable and moody, positive and energetic! You can start with moderation or really strict menu depending on how acidic you are. You can check your ph balance by using PH strip. Or you can sign up for my 7 day Spring Detox program which will start mid-May and you can check out your ph balance too!
