Youíve probably heard of people, friends, family and even nutritionists and doctors talk about healthy. Eating healthy foods, exercising to be healthyÖ but do you actually know what this vague definition of healthy is?
If you eat vegetables, does that make you healthy?
How about if you deep fry these vegetables is it still healthy?
The acid and alkaline principles are the difference of thinking your healthy or knowing whatís healthy and actually feeling heathy. It has a definite result and frankly this feeling is one of the biggest reasons why itís so easy to gain momentum and stick toit. You just feel so good, so energized that itís almost like a drug.
Your body likes to maintain a high ph which is slightly alkaline.
Your body actually fights pretty hard to do this because it works best when itís at this level. It struggles to keep alkaline because 99% of people live an acidic lifestyle.
What happen is that when your body is acidic, it affects everything down to our blood. The acidity of your blood actually strips the electrons around the surface of each blood cell making them polarized. This makes them clump together and slow down in your body.
This slows down the blood flow which in turn slows down how much oxygen gets transported through your body. Not enough oxygen means your body canít perform the basic tasks it has to and needs to work overtime, reaching into your alkaline reserves just to bring your body back to balance.
So the acid and alkaline principles are all to do with getting oxygen absorbed in your body. Your bodyís ph level does fluctuate during the day, but to detoxify and get oxygen absorbed, it needs to be higher than 7.3, which is slightly alkaline.
So what makes our body acidic?
Quite a few things actually. Our emotions, what we eat, our activity levelsÖ Itís more like a way of living than any diet or exercise program.
Have you ever felt really sad, stressed or angry and it actually made you feel sick? This is why. There is referred as acid emotions and all they do is make you sick, throw out your hormone levels and let you feel in the dumps.
Try it for three days with 100% commitment and I donít think youíll ever turn back.
