A lot of people are unaware of the fact that their body has a high level of acidity. Maybe you are one of those people too. Acidic body is a result of our everyday diet of refined sugars, processed foods and GMOs.
Bad news is that such acidic body is a perfect ground for developing cancer, becoming overweight, feeling chronic pain and other health problems.
Good news, on the other hand, is that making your body more alkaline is something you can achieve easily.
Practice these 10 natural ways daily and have an alkaline body. As a plus you’ll be more vital and have more energy as well.
1.Wake up happy and energized each morning and be prepared to go through the day.
Start your day by drinking a big glass of water mixed with freshly-squeezed lemon juice. Although acidic, the lemons have just the opposite effect to your body. They make it more alkaline. Drink this mixture every morning on an empty stomach in order to flush acids from your system.
Or you can also add one or two tablespoons of vinegar into eight ounces of water and drink that. You’ll have the same effect.
2. Include a portion of green salad seasoned with some olive oil and lemon juice in your everyday menu.
Fruits and vegetables are rich in alkaline minerals, like calcium. So you should try and eat as much fruit and vegetables as you can because they help maintain the pH level of your body and maintain balance in the organism.
3. Eat raw, unsalted almonds for your snack.
Almonds are rich in minerals, like magnesium and calcium. These minerals alkalize your organism and balance the blood sugar.
4. Drinking cow’s milk is fine but drinking almond milk is a better option.
You can also prepare yourself a delicious berry smoothie spiced with some green powder like spirulina or similar green powder.
If you are not a very sporty person, a walk to the park or shopping will be enough too. Exercising helps your body digest acidic products more quickly so your body could eliminate them faster.
6. You need more clean air.
Find a place which has clean and oxygen-rich air and spend a lot of time there whenever you can. And don’t forget to drink plenty of water, while spending time there and during the whole day too. That way your body will flush out waste and become alkaline.
7. In order to alkalize your body you shouldn’t eat meat every day because meat leaves acidic residue in the organism. Opt for more fruit and vegetables as we have said before.
8.Start avoiding sweets and soda because they are rich in sugar and there’s no worse acidic food than sugar.
You need to be aware of the fact that if you drink only a can of soda, you’ll have to drink more than thirty glasses of neutral water to balance the level of acidity in your organism.
9. While adding more vegetables in your everyday diet in order to alkalize your organism is necessary, you should avoid eating potatoes. Sweet potatoes are fine but only if you bake them with olive oil and Himalayan salt not butter.
However, aubergines, asparagus, peppers, squash, and other vegetables are great choices which you should consume on a daily basis.
10. Sprouts should be your daily choice too because they are very alkalizing and packed with nutrients and enzymes which will boost your energy.
