"Maintaining this slightly alkaline state is a constant challenge, primarily because of the acid-forming functions that take place within the body, and the overabundance of acid-producing foods we consume.
The idea that various foods influence the pH of the body isn't new. In fact, as far back as the early 1900s, numerous doctors began studying the pH-altering effects of different foods. They found that while a few foods were "neutral" in their effects, most foods were either "alkaline-producing" or "acid-producing." They also found that simply changing the diet could change the pH of the body. Not surprisingly, bringing the body's pH closer to the normal range helped patients get rid of many of their health complaints.
Overacidity has even been linked to the formation of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and osteoporosis."
You read it right, leading cause for any one of those major diseases. I for one am just grateful I have a nutrition system that can help me reset in a hurry even when I've had some not so great food choices!
I've always wondered why after my favorite sushi meal I swell up like a balloon, or why my hip started killing me after 5 days on a cruise, (where I was primarily drinking soda because it flowed from every fountain) it's clear my body was full of acid and my body reacted my filling up with inflammation and kicking my joint pain into high gear. It's a simple explaination. No sure why it never made sense to me in the past!
I have a long way to go with adjusting my families diet, but at least now I have the tools and the energy to do it! 👊🏼
