Good evening everyone, and welcome back hopefully you have read Alkaline Diet; What you need to know first hand? By now. If you haven’t, I suggest you start there and circle back. For a quick recap, if you forgot, an Alkaline diet is based on a theory that some foods cause your body to promote acid, which is harmful. They say if you eat certain foods or drink only certain things when you change the acid level in your body, your PH level will change as well. Now, of course, with many diets and whatnot, there will be claims. One popular claim associated with the Alkaline diet is that a low-acid, high alkaline diet can help fight and prevent cancer. Cancer cells thrive in acidity from foods like sugar, fish, processed foods, soda, and high protein food. Now, of course, all of those things are super yummy. But are you here for a good time or a long time? To backtrack again, remember that the average blood pH range is between 7.35 and 7.45 for most people, and given the tight regulation of blood pH level by the lungs and kidneys, what you eat or don’t eat has little effect on it. PH levels in urine can be affected by dietary factors, but the two systems are entirely separate. The theory of the low-acid, high-alkaline diet as a cancer preventer or fighter persists because the diet is something we can control. But then again, with so little testing, it is always essential to consult with your doctor. Also, remember that I am not a doctor, and everything I and my families own opinion, research, and training.
It’s important to know what foods are right to eat and not eat if you want to try this diet out. On our, IG will be charts posted later tonight on Alkaline and Acid Forming Foods from low to high. Don’t forget to follow, like, and comment. Below are a few recipes that I LOVE are alkaline friendly. A funny thing to know is alkaline is pretty much vegan but the clean eating of it.
A yummy start to your breakfast would be a Cinnamon Quinoa (http://www.alkalinesisters.com/cinnamon-quinoa-breakfast-how-i-start-my-alkaline-day/1215/). All recipes are from the AMAZING http://www.alkalinesisters.com.
I’m excited for you all to try these, and now when filming begins, these recipes will be featured. Now to jump into the water and all the different kinds. But what is Alkaline water? The “alkaline” in alkaline water refers to its pH level. Normal drinking water generally has a neutral pH of 7. The liquid typically has a pH of 8 or 9. However, pH alone isn’t enough to impart substantial alkalinity to water. Alkaline water must also contain alkaline minerals and negative oxidation-reduction potential (ORP). ORP is the ability of water to act as a pro- or antioxidant. The more negative the ORP value, the more anti-oxidizing it is. Is it better to drink some fancy water? If you are me then yes. In my experience, I feel better after drinking advanced water. It’s especially useful if you are dehydrated. BUT, none of you should because most of us are stuck in the house. A tale sign you are dehydrated is if you are craving salt. An excellent liquid second best to water is coconut water. Despite the lack of proven scientific research, proponents of alkaline water still believe in its proposed health benefits. These include:
- anti-aging properties (via liquid antioxidants that absorb more quickly into the human body)
- colon-cleansing properties
- immune system support
- hydration, skin health, and other detoxifying properties
- weight loss
- cancer resistance
Alkaline Water can be bought from most stores. You can even do it at home. Also though lemons and limes are high in acid, they contain minerals that can create like products. In my own experience, key limes are best every morning all day. Amazon also sells PH drops, or you can use baking soda. I would advise you to be careful with baking soda and always ask questions.
Check back tomorrow as continue our journey and talk about products I recommend, mucus, and the teachings of the late Dr.Sebi. Until the next time, I hope you heal.
