MAKING THE CHOICE BETWEEN ALKALINE VS. ACIDIC
A properly alkalized body may not only restore your health; it may also restore your entire sense of well-being. It’s true that acidic foods can be tempting, but think of the disservice you’re doing to your body by loading it up with junk. Taking the time to nurture your body with alkaline foods is one of the most compassionate things you can do for yourself. In today’s world, we often forsake our health for convenience, and in turn, we suffer. But the wonderful thing is that all of that can change in an instant. It is up to you whether your body is alkaline vs. acidic and to give positive change the green light.
from Tony Robbins
Many health professionals, including Dr. Mark Hyman, recommend following a diet rich in alkaline foods for ultimate health and wellness. One way to supplement your diet and work on correcting an acidic pH is to drink alkaline water. Water typically has a neutral pH of 7, but when you make the water more alkaline, it can help to counter acidity in the body. In order to become alkaline, water must have alkaline minerals added to it, such as calcium, potassium, and magnesium. In addition to reducing the amount of acid present, some experts believe that alkaline water can also support the immune system and help with weight loss.
