For many including myself this has become our cure. What does it mean to be alkaline? How can it help your symptoms? Alkalinity is referred to as the pH, it is determined by the concentration of Hydrogen ions in a substance such as water, blood or food. On a scale from 1 - 14, a pH level of 7.0 is considered neutral, 7.0 downwards is increasingly acidic and upwards of 7.0 is increasingly alkaline. Our bodies are alkaline by design and acidic by function and we need both. The human body has adapted to two types of digestion, alkaline for starches and acid for proteins, but true health lives in an alkaline state.
The best way to help your balance is to eat a variety of foods and rotate your selections so that you can stop any reactions that may happen from specific foods. Water is very important to help flush wastes and toxins out of our body. You should drink at least 8 -10 oz glasses of distilled water each day, make sure to add 'Concentrace' by Trace Minerals to help replace essential minerals that can assist your body with alkalinity. If you don't feel that you can drink that much plain water everyday, green tea, herbal teas or squeeze a lemon into your water and this will give you variety plus an excellent source of even more antioxidants.
To stay alkaline avoid... Carbonated drinks, sugar, processed foods, over eating acidic foods
