Ph balance and me

Tuesday, August 30, 2011

I have been blessed with a husband that is very intuitive and who likes, and knows how, to pay attention at how his body works and reacts to food, drinks, etc.

We talked some time ago about how important Ph is for the plants in our garden, how an unbalanced Ph is going to make them not be able to produce any (or good) fruits/veggies. So he researched some about it and found some useful solutions and the plants have been giving plenty.

So, he started to figure out that if Ph is important for plants, it should also be important for us.

We have been taking into consideration how to balance our meals to include enough alkaline foods to balance it out.

We notice that eating too many acidic foods (and that does not mean citric fruits or similar foods, but foods that make your stomach acid - which is NOT produce extra acid or reflux, there is a difference-) makes our digestion slower and sluggish, and that eating plenty of fresh greens and other veggies (mostly alkaline foods) makes that feeling go away.

Last week I was complaining that I felt fat, was gaining weight and all those "beautiful" BS that I had. Well, he helped me realize that I might had been unbalanced or eating too many acidic foods.

I changed my diet to include alkaline foods over the weekend and I am happy to write that the four pounds I had extra last week are gone. Mostly water weight, though, but it made think again about this and plan again to keep my body balanced and healthier.

And not just the extra weight; no, the tiredness, the blueness, the soreness... all those things have to do with being unbalanced.

If you read this, I invite you to research about acidic/alkaline foods, how they can affect your body and your efforts to lose weight and what a difference it can make!!!

    Thanks for the tip. Will check it out. I know that it has been like discovering warm water (it is a loose translation of a somewhat sarcastic saying in my country), but it has been wonderful to me.
    Thanks for reading my blog!!!

    Great blog- VERY interesting. I got interested in Ph went I did a Fitness Challenge this past January and tried the Paleo Diet. I believe that a diet that is more alkaline also helps you get rid of the silent inflammation that is the root of many diseases such as diabetes, heart problems etc.. mark Sisson and Robb Wolf both have websites that talk about this issue (books too). Balance is good :-)
