Your guide to alkaline foods

Prevention is the best medicine to diseases. This prevention can be achieved by eating right and living a healthy lifestyle.  There are so many diseases that cannot grow in an alkaline environment. Our body is supposed to be maintained at a slightly alkaline environment. But due to our poor diet and lifestyle, our bodies are sometimes acidic. The foods that make our internal system to be alkaline include fruits and vegetables. Every health care worker will always stress the importance of including fruits and vegetables in our diets.

Alkaline foods
Alkaline foods are able to increase the amount of oxygen that is absorbed by our blood. The amount of oxygen our blood absorbs can be rated on a pH scale from 0 to 14. 0 is acidic while 14 is alkaline.

As a general rule, raw foods (including fruits and green leafy vegetables) are able to increase our alkalinity. However, not all raw foods are alkalizing, and there are some acidic foods that instead increase our pH when digested. Examples of alkaline foods include:

  • Fresh fruits
  • Fresh herbs for example cayenne, ginger
  • Raw green leafy vegetables
  • Sprouts for example broccoli

Acidic foods.
When we consume too much acidic foods, it can lead to acidosis. Majority of the things many people love are acidic. Acidic foods are not harmless unless we leave on it and don’t balance our system by eating alkaline rich foods. Some acidic foods include:

  • Sugar
  • Meat
  • Chicken
  • Egg
  • Bad fats
  • Some fruits
  • Junk and processed foods
  • Alcohol
  • grains
Our body is balanced when we have a pH of about 7.365

Our body is balanced when our pH is about 7.365. When our body becomes too acidic, we develop diseases like candida infections, cancer, diseases of the cardiovascular system, diabetes etc. The things that make us acidic are the food we eat, parasites, stress and toxins.

It is important for everybody to learn how to live right and eat healthy food. Everybody should try to eat at least any vegetable or fruit every day. The trend of diseases like cancer keeps spiking up and a healthy diet and lifestyle may be a cure to so many diseases that plaque us today.
