Alkalize: This can make a huge difference to your life!

It’s true that when you feel good, you are better to yourself and the people around you. This is why I’ve chosen to also share tips and advice on health here in my relationship blog. So let’s get started!

In order for your body to maintain great health, it has got to have a certain pH - a certain basis of what’s called acid and alkaline in the system. On a scale of 0 to 14 - where 0 is pure acid (that can burn a hole in steel), and 14 is purely alkaline - the balance would be 7.

Our bodies need to be at 7.36, which is slightly more alkaline – that’s the ideal. When your body is not balanced and have too much acid, you create an environment that can yield anything from low energy, aches and pains, skin problem to discomfort and even diseases.
An overly acidic body will also have a tough time losing weight or maintaining a healthy body. Here is why.

Acids tend to settle in the weakest part of your body because that part of your body can’t clean up the mess as quickly. So guess what the body does to survive? It instinctually takes these acids out of the blood stream and into the fats of the body, so to take the acids away from the vital organs.

Your body does this to protect you, and in doing so, it holds on to the fat as a survival mechanism. You will not let go of the fat, no matter how much you exercise or how much you eat right if you do not create an environment that is more alkaline.

You can even use wellness products and have a tough time experiencing positive effects if your body is too acidic. An acidic body cannot absorb nutrients effectively. This is one reason why some people can’t seem to experience positive effects from wellness products where others are getting results.

By the way, don’t just take my word for it. Do your research on acid and alkaline. Look it up. Test it out. Get a pH strip at the store and test your pH level. Look into a way of eating that can help alkalize your system and create an environment in your body where illness or any form of dis-ease cannot reside.

This idea of alkalizing your body is not a new concept, it is however, a concept not often taught to us. So do yourself a favor and take this opportunity to start treating your body better.

There are tons of literature and discoveries on how acid and alkaline work in your body. Many people have already discovered how to alkalize to energize, lose weight, and gain great health. Just look into it and you’ll see for yourself.

Bottom line: It’s all about balance. If you’re going to consume acidic foods, make sure you’re consciously consuming a lot of alkaline foods to neutralize your system. So if you must have your steak (which is very acidic), have it with a green salad, spinach or broccoli.

And throughout the day, squeeze lemon (which is pure alkaline) in your water. Have a green drink in the morning before you consume anything else. This will energize you. Not to mention, it can help neutralize so your body can absorb nutrients throughout the day.

I attached a link here that includes a chart showing you what foods are acidic or alkaline. As you look into alkalizing your body, refer to this chart to plan what and how you eat! Also, below is a video I want to share with you - Live on CNN news.
