Don’t have a clue why you should Alkalize?
What MOST of us do not know about the foods we consume is, everything we eat and drink leaves a resultant ash of either acid or alkali in our bodies.
Viruses, bacteria, molds, fungi all thrive in an acid environment. When we eat predominantly acid producing foods, we supply a dandy habitat for an excess population of any of the above. Be aware, we have all of the above in our bodies already, but when we don’t supply enough alkali producing foods to keep them in check, that is, eat those foods, we feed and house the enemy; anything from Candida to strep or halitosis to influena. An acid based body also supports disorders such as diabetes & obesity & is suspect in every health malady today.
This is not as difficult or as technical as it sounds. When we talk about eating alkaline foods or starting an alkaline diet we are referring to consuming those foods and drink which have an alkaline effect on the body. This effect is based upon the mineral content of the food and therefore the ash residue that remains after our foods are consumed. Some foods leave an acid ash, whereas others leave an alkaline ash. Conveniently for us, it just so happens that the foods that contain alkaline minerals (and leave an alkaline ash) are all the foods we already know are good for us: low sugar foods, fresh alkaline vegetables etc. And the foods that contain minerals that leave an acid ash? You guessed it, sweets, alcohol, saturated fats, meats, dairy etc.
Of course, everybody is different – but most of us should aim to eat 70-80% alkaline foods and a maximum of 20-30% acid forming foods.
This does not have to be measured in calories, grams or anything technical, just look at your plate! Is 70% of the food on it alkalising? And for the other 30%? You can do with this what you like (how acid is up to you – dependent upon the results you want), but feel free to go for some oily fish, wholemeal pasta or wild rice for example.
“After years of societal changes, millions of dollars worth of marketing spent and technological advances we, as a race, are now facing more dietary based health challenges than ever before. It is no coincidence that the rapidly growing numbers of cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and morbid obesity, correlate almost exactly with the rise in consumption of acid forming foods such as sugars, saturated fats, and white breads. At the same time our consumption of fresh alkaline vegetables and essential fatty acids has decreased dramatically, making way for convenience and a generation hooked on sugary treats.” quote- www. energiseforlife.com
When you become alkalized you will discover a new health confidence you’ve most likely never known. You will be able to be around family and friends knowing you won’t come down with something having just visited your ailing grandchild or been in the company of a crouping bridge partner. Following these good health practices will increase your awareness of the state of your body and give you ongoing health tactics.
