It is important to alkalize your body on a daily basis. The alkalization process cleanses your blood and helps to keep your blood pH regulated in a slightly more alkaline state.
The inflammation process occurs in the body from the extra acid present in the blood pH. When the body gets too acidic, sickness and disease can develop. Over time, chronic cases such as arthritis, diabetes, mental illness, cancer and heart disease can develop because each of these diseases thrives in an acidic environment.
When you consume an acidic diet it creates stress and havoc within your internal environment, as well as your skin. Your disrupted ecosystem can manifest as aches and pains, mood swings, candida, acne, and being chronically tired, among other symptoms. Additionally, your vitamin and nutrient absorption is affected! The ideal balance in a diet is 80% alkaline to 20% acidic. Most leafy greens and organic produce tend to have a more alkaline pH, as well as the juice from fresh lemons and limes. While on the other hand, a diet rich in animal protein and dairy without the complement of leafy greens, vegetables and fruit, is more acidic. You are what you eat! Alkaway.com.au has a well-informed chart on alkaline and acidic foods.
Besides eating mostly alkalizing foods to help balance your blood pH, water is essential. Consider investing in an alkalizing water system (Alkaway.com.au offers alkalizing water systems that are easy-to-use and affordable), or seek out a fresh spring source to supply some of your weekly water intakes. Testing out the water you drink is also important to verify its acidity or alkalinity. You would be surprised to see that a lot of the drinking water you buy in plastic bottles is more acidic than your tap water! Water with a pH of 7.5 to 9.5 is the ideal pH range for helping to alkalize your body and mind and for your thirst. An alkaline body in the long term helps you to heal faster by decreasing inflammation, sickness, achy joints, and aids in better sleep and giving you more energy.
Over-exercising and training can create inflammation and high levels of acid in the blood. And so can stress. Stress leads directly to high acidic levels in the blood and developing an immuno-compromised system, including cancer. Meditation is beneficial to keeping your body pH more alkaline, as it helps to reduce stress levels.
Balancing alkalinity is crucial to keep the mind, body and spirit in a state of wellness.
