What Is Your Body’s Acid Status?

cold beverage

A lot of people don’t realize the impact that drinking carbonated drinks (such as sodas) has on their health. In addition to their other dietary drawbacks, carbonated drinks—even diet ones—are are highly acidic and lead to increased acidity in the body. Acidity is measured by the pH scale, which is technically a measure of the concentration of hydrogen ions in a solution. A lower number on the pH scale means higher acidity. A higher pH reading means higher alkalinity. Any pH lower than 7 is considered acidic, and any pH above 7 is considered alkaline. The body does best in a slightly alkaline state. The foods we eat and the things we drink can affect our acid/alkaline…

Is Your Diet Alkaline Or Acidic?

doctor-sm

Q. Is it better for your health to be more alkaline than acidic? A. The short answer is “yes”. Over-acidity and the problems associated with it plague our nation’s health. You’re better off if you can tip the scale towards alkalinity. Q. Doesn’t the body balance pH on its own? A. The body has several systems in place designed to balance the acidity/alkalinity of the body’s systems. Proper pH is extremely important for your health. If it is just a little off, you’ll die.

The Top 6 Alkaline Foods for Your Everyday Meals

brocolli_small_wbg

Most Americans have terrible diets. Not just terrible, but deadly. Just think of all the chemical-laden, fatty, fried, acid-forming foods that are commonly eaten in the United States. We live in a “fast food” society and to eat healthy is most certainly not the “norm”, and it’s not popular with the big food corporations either. Everything around us pushes boxed foods, processed carbs, fast fixes, and all kinds of “foods” that might taste good, but offer very little in true nutritional quality… and are far more likely to hurt us over the long run. It’s difficult, because many people get caught up in this mess—eating a lot of “so-called” food instead of real food—and they do so…

Exploring the Alkaline Diet

compass-2-649877-m

The first thing to understand about the alkaline diet is that the reference to “acidic” versus “alkaline” is not necessarily tied to the acidity or alkalinity of the food itself. The primary focus is what the food does in terms of alkalinity or acidity once it is processed by the body. Some foods that are considered acidic (for example, lemons) actually become alkaline once processed in the body. And this is where the focus of the alkaline diet sits: on the results that foods produce in the body. The alkaline diet is a diet high in healthy vegetables and fruits, and low in fats, meats, sugars, and processed foods. It is a naturally healthy diet with high…

What is the Alkaline Diet?

alkaline diet

An alkaline diet is a diet that focuses on alkaline-promoting foods, while reducing or avoiding acid-promoting foods. It is believed that following the alkaline diet will improve your overall health by balancing your pH and making the body’s job of regulating pH easier. The key to the alkaline diet is focusing on the best foods, and replacing or reducing the “acidic offenders” wherever possible. Some examples of “high” alkaline-forming foods that are included in a healthy alkaline diet include: alfalfa sprouts apples apricots avocados bananas beets bell peppers broccoli cabbage cantaloupe cauliflower celery corn dates figs garlic ginger grapefruit grapes green beans kelp kiwi leafy greens lemons limes mango nectarines onions oranges papaya parsley passion fruit peaches…

If there is one thing reality TV star Millie Mackintosh is known for, it is her amazingly fit body.

The Amazing Health Benefits of Sea Salt

the sea

Sea salt is a natural form of salt that is believed to have a number of health benefits. Typical table salt has iodine added (starting in the 1920s to prevent iodine deficiency), and has been “processed” to remove non-salt substances. It also has a few added chemicals… usually anti-caking agents at the very least. Sea salt, on the other hand, is minimally processed. It contains minerals not found in table salt due to its the lack of processing. Sea salt is believed to have numerous health benefits, including: alkalizing the body increasing immunity improving electrolyte balance promoting good sleep and good moods preventing muscle cramps regulating of the cardiovascular system and more… The minerals found in sea…
