So how do we get our "acidity" back to normal at a "neutral 7"???
Well . . . first we need to know what our "acidity" level is . . .
And to do that . . . we'd need to test ourselves first thing every morning.
Now . . . you can purchase "urine/saliva" test strips at your locate health food store or pharmacy.
And all you have to do is this . . . put a test strip end in your urine stream of the first pee of the day . . . get the end wet, remove and wait for it to change color. It only takes a few seconds. Then check it against the pH scale that came with the strips.
If the strip is "yellow". . . you're too "acidic" . . . if the strip is "bluish" . . . you're too "alkaline"
And if the strip is "green" . . . you are a "healthy" neutral. Good for you and be proud!
So what foods will help to "alkalize" the body's pH level so we are a "neutral 7" or close to it on the "pH scale"???
Well . . . that would be . . .
Swiss chard, dandelion greens, spinach, kale, almonds, avocados, cucumbers, beets, kiwi, pineapple, persimmons, watermelon, grapefruit and apples.
Now . . . a key element to staying "neutral 7" is focusing on consuming enough "potassium" in the diet with fruits like bananas . . .
But the key to this is . . . eat a banana a little on the "unripe" side. It have less starch and sugar.
And foods to "avoid" would be . . .
Dairy, eggs, meat, most grains, processed foods like canned and packaged snacks and convenience foods, beans, oilseeds, salt, cheese, sugar, coffee and alcohol. These are all foods and drink that make us "ACIDIC".
Now . . . one of "my" favorite ways to keep me neutral . . . is the little spice with a kick . . . "ginger"
"Ginger" is "alkaline and can help relieve the symptoms of a body too high in "acid". It also reduces and treats "inflammation", chronic pain, acid reflux and nausea . . . due to providing an "alkalizing" effect.
NOTE: As always, please check with your own healthcare provider before trying anything new. And tomorrow, we'll talk about one of our favorite "acidic" foods that we need to eliminate . . . can you guess what it is??? As always, feel free to DM or contact me at: miraclemeadows.net/contact/
