Discover 3 Surefire Ways For Restoring PH Balance

Why restore pH balance of the body? Well, think about what acid does to things. Acid rain kills the ecosystem, acid removers strip paint and varnish from wood. Battery acid eats right through anything it leaks on. Doing acid kills your brain.

Same thing goes for the inside of your body. If your body is either too acid or too alkaline, it starts to break down and die. The result is not pretty. Heart disease, asthma, bronchitis, acne, premature aging, liver failure, cancer, and yes, literally every disease people are suffering in our modern times that were unheard of before.

Ever wonder why you are feeling sluggish, why you want to take a nap after you eat, why you're feeling sick and tired and seem to catch every new cold that comes around?

The answer is mostly all about the food we consume. The modern diet, the western diet in particular, is so acidic that it is a wonder we have survived this long on it. You may be thinking, well, do not tell me I have to eat pond sludge and other nasty stuff. You will be happy to note that alkalizing your body is easy, with a few configurations made over time you can affect a pH balance. It's as simple as 1-2-3. Are you ready to get started?

Here are 3 surefire ways to restore pH balance in your body.

Step 1: Drink More Alkaline Water

You may wonder how you can get alkaline water. After all is not water all the same? Not really. The pH balance of water depends on how it is processed and what minerals it contains. First you will notice that alkaline water goes down easily. It's sweet, yet almost non-persistent flavor makes you actually crave more of it. Tap water and most bottled water is a far cry from this water. If you do not want to buy an ionizer then instead, shop at places that sell ionized water with added minerals. Some places even sell it from a dispenser for a small plastic jug refilling fee.

Start slowly alkalizing your body by replacing other beverages with ionized water. You should especially begin to eliminate beverages such as coffee, black tea, prepackaged juices, and anything containing caffeine or any type of sweeteners. If plain water just does not appeal to you, consider purchasing Stevia as a sweetener. This often comes in some all natural flavors like chocolate, raspberry, cream soda, root-beer, vanilla, and even plain. You can usually purchase a bottle at your local health food store or online and they last a very long time. One typical two ounce bottle contains over 500 servings. Stevia is all natural and adds fiber to your diet. It is also alkalizing. So forget using artificial cancer causing chemical sweeteners, this all natural sweet leaf is 100% safe and has been approved by the FDA.

Step 2: Increase Your Consumption of Alkaline Foods, Reduce Acid-Forming Foods

Now that you are fully hydrated, you will probably be feeling a whole lot better. Now you can start switching out the foods you eat. Obtain a list of alkaline, acidic, and neutral foods. Then get to work. Start swapping out your sugar, refined flour, and other refined flour products with healthier, more alkaline versions. Opt for whole grain breads and pastas, sprouted grains, and those containing nuts and seeds. The fresher your bread is the better.

Next, swap out your fruits and veggies. Buy raw or flash frozen whenever possible. Organic is best, but fresh is key. Cooked fruits and vegetables are highly acidic. If you must cook, light blanch, steam, or bake your vegetables. Always eat fruit fresh. Obtain a list of alkaline and acidic fruits and vegetables and post it where you can refer to it easily.

Start swapping out your snack foods next. Anything processed, with any added chemicals, preservatives, sweeteners, or unidentifiable ingredients can be switched easily to foods such nuts, crunchy vegetables, dried fruit, or fresh fruit. Fresh fruit is highly portable and even comes in its own convenient biodegradable wrapper.

Then try to trade the meats you eat for alkaline ones. Trade you red meats, pork, and catfish for chicken, deep water fish, and legumes. If you absolutely must eat meat, at least eat it steamed and eat that which alkalizes your body.

Step 3: Pay Attention to When You Eat What You Eat

How do you prepare your food and when you eat it plays a key role in its effects on the body. For best results avoid pan frying, sautéing, deep frying, barbecuing or any other type of cooking which produces caramelization (browning). Instead boil, steam, poach, or bake lightly in a covered dish. Try not to consume protein and carbohydrates at the same time. So eat your fruits separately from your meats, and your meat separately from your grains and tubers. (Potatoes, and root vegetables.) Eat your vegetables either with your grains or with your meats. Nuts and seeds are free foods, especially when raw. Serve them with anything.

It's best to eat your fruits in the morning, your carbohydrates in the afternoon and meats at night. That is the order in which they are easily digested. Eating a high protein meal in the morning will make you sluggish, and eating fruit at night will leave all that natural simple carbohydrates in your system over night.

And Other Tips

As with all things, moderation is the key. Eat moderately, about 2 / 3rds to 3 / 4ths of your diet should be highly alkalizing foods. Be sure to drink enough water and get moderate amounts of exercise. Exercise is very important to help flush toxins and alkalize the body, but too much can have a toxic effect. Invest in a good recipe book. You will soon find your new way of life is energizing and you will feel at the peak of your health. Following these steps should get you started on restoring your pH balance and experience the life you were truly meant to live.
