What You Need To Know About These Inflammatory & Autoimmune Issues


Are You Acidic or Alkaline?

Alkalinity and acidity are measured in pH (potential hydrogen). Every food and beverage has an acid or alkaline characteristic and is measured on a pH scale of 0-14. Did you know that your lifestyle and what you eat affects your pH?

Unfortunately, we live in a very acidic environment with high stress, processed foods, too much coffee, and acid forming diets. These lifestyle factors can throw off your pH balance causing your body to leach out valuable buffering minerals such as calcium, magnesium, and iodine as a way to bring it back into balance. Keep in mind that inflammation lives in acidic environments and inflammation is the root cause of every disease.

Wondering how a diet soda can make you fat? Why high protein diets can't be heathy for the body long-term? For starters, the pH of a diet soda is a 3 and it is used to clean rust off bumpers and blood off concrete. Can you imagine what it does to your body? Overtime, when the body is too acidic, it leaches out iodine which regulates the thyroid, and the thyroid controls metabolism hence difficulty losing weight. When it comes to high-protein diets, proteins are also known as amino acids. Too many amino acids makes the body super acidic leading to poor bone health, difficulty sleeping, poor digestion, sluggish metabolism, and inflammation.

Simple Tips for Making The Body Alkaline

1. Eating foods found in the center two circles of the Food Target. These foods are all alkalizing on the body.

2. Choosing only organic animal products and limit your dairy intake such as cow's milk, cheese, and yogurt.

3. Make sure you are getting quality sleep each night (7-9 hours).

4. Incorporate more rest and rejuvenation practices to manage acid- forming stress.

5. Exercise is a great way to burn up stress and make the body balanced.

You can measure your pH with pH strips from the health food store. Simply stick under your tongue for a couple seconds to see where you measure up on the pH scale.
