Our body’s internal system needs a PH of just above 7.0; our immunologic, enzymatic and repair mechanisms all function at their best in this alkaline range.
The environment we are in matters not just emotionally but physically too. It’s not just people you surround yourself with it’s food.
If our body becomes over acidic, i.e. under a PH of 7, you may start to experience a combination of these symptoms:
Low energy, fatigue
Infections (bacterial, fungal, viral)
Weak nails, dry skin, dry hair
Frequent colds, flu and infection
If you have these symptoms and eat foods which create acid in the body, I recommend you start with an alkaline diet ASAP. There’s a lot that can be done simply by changing your environment. When you change what you eat, you change the environment your cells are in.
There is a whole list of foods that cause the body to be over-acidic: dairy and dairy substitutes, sugar, oil, salt, animal meat, most grains, chickpeas, condiments, aspartame, prunes, chocolate, peanuts, alcohol and quite a few other types of foods.
Sometimes the answer is changing one thing for another. Simple isn’t always easy, but it is definitely effective. When you are struggling stick with what you know. Routine, Self Care and people that love you. You are not Coffee or Pizza. You are you. Not everyone will like that but it’s ok. You do you.
