Your body is Acidic. If it were Alkaline, Cancer and microbes couldn’t live in.

Our body is a microbe. That is how we evolved.

SIMPLE WAYS TO enhance an Alkaline environment while we live

Many people who are reading this have a high acidity level in his or her body. This is due to the typical first world diet of processed foods, refined sugars, and GMOs.

However, many people do not know that an acidic body is a breeding ground for cancer, excess weight, pain and many health issues.

Making your organism more alkaline is very simple and easy.

Making alkaline environment is in fact the opposite of acidic environment.

Here are 10 simple natural ways that you can practice every day and they will alkalize your organism.

At same time you will gain more everyday energy and vitality:

1. Most important is to start your day with smile and with a large glass of water with the juice of a freshly-squeezed lemon. Lemons actually have the opposite effect on your body even they may seem acidic. Drink first thing in the morning to flush the system.

Another option is to drink one or two glasses of organic apple cider vinegar and water daily. You should only mix one to two tablespoons of vinegar in eight ounces of water.

2. Eat large portion of green salad tossed in lemon juice and quality olive oil. Greens (vegetable or fruit) are among the best sources of alkaline minerals, like calcium. Eat alkaline foods during the day like most fruits and vegetables. They sustain the body’s pH on a daily basis and keep balance in your organism.
3. Your snack should consist on raw, unsalted almonds. Almonds are full with minerals that are natural alkaline like magnesium and calcium, which actually help to balance out acidity and in the same time to balance blood sugar.
4. Drink almond milk and make yourself nice berry smoothie with added green powder like spirulina, or other greens. If you have choice between almond milk and cow’s milk, almond milk is better option.
5. Go for a nice walk or some other exercise. It’s very important to be active. Exercise actually helps move acidic products so your body can better eliminate them.
6. Breathe deeply. Ideally, choose a spot that has fresh, oxygen-rich air and go there whenever you can. While you are there, drink lots of water (and on daily basis as well) to flush the system of waste.
7. Do not eat meat every day. If you can skip few days without meat it will be great because eating meat every day leaves an acid residue behind. We have a lot of vegan or vegetarian recipes for you. Alkalize your body!
8. Skip dessert loaded with sugar and skip drinking sodaSugar is one of the worst acidic foods we consume and our enemy. If you drink just ONE can of soda, you will actually need more than thirty glasses of neutral water to neutralize the acidity in your body!
9. Add more vegetables to your diet. Be careful, potatoes don’t count. However, sweet potatoes are good choice but don’t make them with butter, use olive oil and Himalayan salt for baking. Peppers, Asparagus, squash, Aubergines, and other vegetables are also great choices.
10. And last but not least: Add more sprouts to your daily diet. They are extremely alkalizing and rich in nutrients and energy-boosting enzymes.

What’s the bottom line on coconut oil?

The Internet was taken by storm a week ago when a new study by the American Heart Association announced that coconut oil might be bad for you.

The author of the study said he had no idea why people ever thought coconut oil was healthy, condemning the high amount of saturated fat in the product.

The mainstream media broadcasted the news as is and the wellness community stood in defence of their favourite oil.

This is not the first time we witness similar controversies.

Let’s have a look at this debate!

If you have read one or more articles about coconut oil, you know that it has been linked to a number of health benefits related to skin, weight loss and even vaginal health.

Between the new AHA study and the many others highlighting the benefits of coconut oil, it is really hard to make one’s own conclusion.

What is The Full Story?

1- Yes, coconut oil contains higher amount of saturated fat. But…

If we look deeper than just a headline, we realize that the “studies the American Heart Association sites in the recent study, do not link eating coconut oil to heart disease, they link it to increasing cholesterol numbers.” And according to Dr. Will Cole, a functional medicine practitioner, “studies have found that there might be no association between high total cholesterol and heart attack and stroke risk.”

2- Eating fat doesn’t make you fat

If it is the fat content you are worried about, then you have it all wrong. Dr Mark Hyman is a big fan of eating fat as a way to reach optimal wellbeing, and coconut oil is one of his favourites.

What makes coconut oil so valuable is that it contains MCT oil (medium-chain triglyceride oil). Your cells burn these MCTs for energy while storing very little of them as fat, boosting metabolism and supporting your immune system in the bargain.

3-  Low fat diets have not stopped or slowed down the epidemic of obesity and diabetes

Quite the opposite, it has probably accelerated it.

After years and so many national campaigns to encourage people to go on low-fat diets to decrease their weight and reduce the occurrence of diabetes, governments are finally catching up to the misleading studies and the resulting misconceptions.

In 2016, the British National Obesity Forum (NOF) and Public Health Collaboration (PHC) released a report based on the analysis of 43 studies that warns that the policy to encourage people to eat a low-fat diet is having a disastrous impact on public health.

Key findings of the report state that: high-fat diets are superior for weight-loss, calorie counting doesn’t work, exercise alone cannot combat obesity, saturated fat does not cause heart disease and meal frequency influences weight.

Finally, the report asks for a complete review of dietary guidelines because these have caused increased consumption of net carbs and junk foods and notes that eating healthy fat does not make you fat.

So, What is The Bottom Line? 

Every expert confirms that we can still consider coconut oil as a health food because it is rich in MCTs, and because of a general misunderstanding of fats and specifically saturated fats.

“The problem with saturated fats like coconut oil occurs when people eat them with refined grains (which turn into sugar) such as breads and pasta or sugary foods,” explains Dr. Cole. “This ‘mixed meal’ combination amplifies the inflammatory effects of sugar.”

We can’t look at one ingredient and pretend we hold the answer to its impact on our health. It fits within a complete picture of a lifestyle.

One last thing, quantity matters. Even if it is considered healthy, the quantity of coconut oil consumed makes a difference, especially that each body is different.

Experts suggest 1 or 2 tablespoons per day but we suggest you start there and adjust according to how your body reacts. It is about what works for you!

Note: Sugar is addictive. Any food with sugar is addictive and bad for diet and healthy state.
