Restoring the body's acid-alkaline balance leads to better health and wellbeing.
Maintaining an optimum acid-alkaline balance is integral to enjoying optimal health, yet our modern-day habits and preferences often wreak havoc with this delicate balance. Highly processed foods acidify the body as does a diet high in meat, dairy and sugar. The body becomes overwhelmed with this acid imbalance and this, in turn, causes acidosis, which can lead to a host of problems. Weight gain, gastrointestinal conditions, skin conditions, chronic fatigue and respiratory ailments are just some of the complications.
The ideal diet that supports pH balance is rich in fresh fruits, roots, vegetables, legumes and nuts and avoids excess fats, sugars, refined foods, salt, alcohol, tobacco, coffee and tea.
