Pizza. Steak. Ice cream. Think of the foods we crave often. Do you have a diet that is high in acid? If you’ve never thought about it before, now is a good time to start. These foods might be putting you at risk for chronic pain and disease.

A diet that promotes acidification of the blood and tissues can compromise the health of your body. The reason for this likely comes down to pH imbalance. In order to survive, your blood needs to maintain a delicate pH balance range of 7.35 to 7.45 . Any time a pH imbalance occurs, your body becomes open to disease. pH imbalances also make it easier for viruses, bacteria, and fungi to take root. This, in tur, is how infectious diseases begin.Your body is a machine. And like any machine, it becomes less efficient when you fill it with the wrong type of fuel. In this case, the fuel is food. Every single food has its own effect on the pH of your body.

Acidic foods trigger an inflammation response, which then damages cells and tissues. They also cause the body to form more mucus, which can be irritating to your lungs and air passages. Finally, acidic foods can raise the acidity of bile and pancreatic juices. This, in turn, makes it more difficult for the body to detoxify.

Acidifying foods don’t fit into a healthy, sustainable diet. These foods place a heavy burden on our bodies. Unfortunately, foods that cause acidification of the body also tend to be very addictive. For example: foods that contain sugar, caffeine, alcohol, or vinegar, all raise your body’s activity.Some foods can also alkalise your body. Great examples of these include: lemon, avocado, celery, and most fruits and vegetables in general.

Alkaline foods can help you detoxify your body. They have been shown to raise the level of beneficial human growth hormones, improve bone health and promote muscle growth. There is even evidence that they can prevent weight-related diseases such as diabetes.

These foods can also reduce the excess acid in your body. This is because they contain bases and alkaline salts. As a result, they can combat many of the negative effects of acidic foods.

In short, alkaline foods are the best nutrition you can give your body.An alkalised body can restore your health, as well as your sense of well-being. Thankfully, there are many ways you can alkalise your body. Here are just a few:Stress has a huge impact on your body. So if you worry too much, then you might be literally worrying yourself sick. In fact, in just one minute of dealing with a stressful situation, you can put your whole body into an acidic state. This is because physical and emotional stress produces acidic waste.

If stress makes the body too acidic, then it makes sense that rest and stress reduction are some of the best ways to alkalise the body.

You can also reduce your body’s acid burden by meditating, since this can also reduce stress. You should also make sure that you are breathing properly. The Wim Hof Method is a great way to saturate your body with available oxygen. This, in turn, will put your body into an alkaline state.

Start by taking 10 Power Breaths 3 times a day.

This is how to take 1 Power Breath:

  • INHALE for 7 counts (inhale while counting silently from 1-7)
  • HOLD for 28 counts (hold your breath while counting silently from 1-28)
  • EXHALE for 14 counts (exhale while counting silently from 1-14)
That completes 1 Power Breath.

When you’re sick, your bodily fluids become heavy, thick, and toxic. This is a symptom of over-acidic imbalance. If this sounds like you, then consider drinking what Dr. Robert Young refers to as “structured water”. This is simply pH alkaline water. When you drink “structured water”, you begin a process of super hydration and de-acidification. It is great for flushing out the excess acids from your fluids and tissues.Many acidic foods can be temping. But before you indulge your temptations, think about how you will be harming your body. Take a break from things like caffeine, alcohol, and sugar. These foods are addictive. They can also cause catastrophic issues for your body like obesity, heart disease, brain damage, and diabetes.

Nourish your body with a diet that is rich in alkaline foods. As much as possible, try to have a diet that is high in dark green and yellow vegetables, soy beans, sprouted nuts, seeds grains, and essential fatty acids. It is also a good idea to follow a low-carbohydrate diet. This is because carbs are closely related to sugar – a very acidic food. Finally, juicing is a great way to incorporate more alkalising foods into your diet.

It might be unrealistic for you to get rid of acidic foods altogether, at least at first.

If you can’t abandon acidic foods completely, then aim for a diet comprising of 75% alkaline foods, and no more than 25% acidic foods.
