Acid vs. Alkaline Balance for Weight Loss by Cynthia Om
Are you sick and tired of feeling sick and tired? Are you frustrated with carrying extra
weight? Well these are sure signs that you have had enough of living with an acidic
condition in the body. Just as our body works to maintain a body temperature of 98.6, it
is also striving to achieve a blood pH balance of 7.365. This can only be achieved
directly by what we eat and what we feel. When we consume foods on the acidic side,
such as, coffee, meat, dairy, processed food, refined sugar, and if we feel stress our
blood becomes acidic and our body naturally adds fat to protect the organs from the
acidic condition. This acidic condition is a breeding ground for a number of diseases
such as cancer, diabetes, arthritis, and many others. They all stem from acidic blood.
When we consume foods of an alkaline nature, such as, green leaves, vegetables, fresh
filtered water, coconut water, almonds, etc. our blood then begins to become alkaline,
ridding the body of excess protective weight. You begin to feel lighter and have more
energy; after, first passing through a stage of detoxification which may involve lethargy,
fatigue, headaches, and flu-like symptoms.
Blood pH is not the only important factor in weight loss, it is also aided by the enzymes
that are found in raw plant foods. Enzymes are responsible for every function of the
body and work hard to keep you healthy and rejuvenating. As you begin to clean your
blood you will begin to notice your appearance becoming more youthful. You body is
like an energy bank. When you are eating or drinking you are either making a deposit
(health, vitality, and energy) or a withdrawal (sickness, tiredness, weight gain). So next
time you go to eat or drink you have the choice to feel better. Don’t you want to choose
alkalinizing and healthy food and feel better today?
