Alkaline vs. Acid Forming Foods Raw Fruits and Vegetables or French Fries and Burgers

What Would You Choose an Acid or Alkaline?

Alkaline vs. Acid? Your body should consist of 80% Alkaline and 20% Acid. Too much acid causes major disorders. For one, it stresses your kidneys and bladder and wipes out your reserve of alkaline that is needed to bind acids.

Alkaline, fats and calcium binds acids away from organs.If you suffer with low energy, poor digestion, excess weight, unclear thinking and/or unexplained aches and pains, it could very well be because your body is favoring the acid side

I cleaned out my refrigerator today. Have you ever left something in your frig too long? Gross. bacteria, yeast, fungus, molds and decay, exactly what your body does if you don’t eat a proper balance of 80% alkaline and 20% acid forming foods..
An Alkaline Diet Speaks for Itself
Your Body Has Been Delegated a Job to Do in a Precise Way

Keeping your body more alkaline can be quite simple. Don’t overindulge when eating. Eat small meals more often. Incorporate foods in your diet that are less likely to ferment. Remember the rule 80/20.

Your kidneys separate the alkalinity, you pee some acidity. The alkalinity is bound by calcium, potassium and magnesium and taken back into the blood to neutralize acidity in the blood and tissues. If your system is living in an acid environment with no alkaline to proceed with this chore it gets confused.

Essential fatty acids in your diet are like the word says essential. They bind the acidity away from your organs. You see, some fats are good for you. This is why you do not want to take Cholesterol medication. It stops all fats and when there is no fat the body turns to calcium to do what fats did. A deficiency of calcium occurs.

If you use calcium blockers you stop the fatty acids from binding the acidity away from your organs. In other words it blocks this process and your body has no other source of defense.

If there is nothing to bind the toxins you most likely will end up with a heart attack or some other illness that could have been prevented. It has been read that disease cannot form in an alkaline environment. Now I see why. Do you?

It’s been proven, illness cannot live in an alkaline state

A Very Cheap Healthy Alkaline Forming Drink

Distilled water combined with lemons, limes and/or grapefruits make a great drink. To save money, I break out my juicer once a month and juice a whole bag of limes. The process is messy and somewhat time consuming, but so much worth the pennies it cost for each 64 ounce pitcher. The citrus can sting your hands though so I wear gloves to avoid direct contact on my skin.

I put the concentrate into ice trays and freeze. When done I pop the cubes out and transfer to a zip lock bag. For a week or two, it’s a no brainier, even my husband and son do it. How cool is that. They love it. Just take one cube out of the freezer bag, put it into a glass pitcher and fill it up with water; preferably filtered water. Before the pitcher is completely empty we add more water and another lime cube so we can continue drinking it while the lime cube is melting. I use Brita water myself. Save money, stay alkaline and drink healthy. That’s what I’m talking about.
Disease Will Have a Very Hard Time Living in an Alkaline Environment

Let’s see if I can make this more understandable for you. If you have low oil in your car it will cause more friction and wear down other michanical components that keep it running. This is why you check your oil. If you don’t, eventually your car will start giving you problems and slow down. It will start sounding bad and stalling and sooner or later it will stop running all together. No car, no way to get around, no body no way to live your life.

Just like you have to check your oil in your car so do you check your pH level. An accurate reading should be 6.8 to 7.4 for good health. Test morning and night, saliva and urine. A 14′ roll of pH paper will cost anywhere from $10 – $13. Testing can stop when you are in balance and when you know what to do to stay that way. Keeping yourself favoring alkaline will ward you away from the diseases plaguing society today, including cancer which grows in an acidic pH body.

One is not better than the other, although remember the rule 80/20.
