Did you know that for optimum health your blood pH should be around 7.3 - 7.5?
This puts your body in an alkaline state.
In this alkaline state, your body's metabolism, immune system, enzymes and repair mechanisms work effectively.
When the pH moves out of this ideal range then
As a result; bacteria, parasites and fungi grow really well and reproduce at an alarming rate, like bunnies!!!
Being too acidic contributes to

When we are acidic then our body requires minerals to buffer and rebalance our blood pH.
Our body can draw these minerals from the fluid surrounding our cells.
BUT once that is used up,
our body begins to draw these rebalancing minerals from our bones!
And THEN our illnesses begin!
To find out what your pH is
you can measure your urine.
You can purchase pH testing papers from your health shop. Dip your pH paper into your first week of the day.
A range of between 6.5 - 7.5 is fairly neutral. Below 7, which is the pH of water, shows that you are acidic.
If your reading is below 6.5 it is a good idea to start making dietary changes to bring your urinary pH back t the ideal range of 6.5 - 7.5
Also take a mineral supplement which will help your body in stabilsing your blood pH and a vitamin C supplement.
You could use an alkaline powder which has minerals that are necessary to alkalise your blood pH.
You may think that an acidic tasting food like an orange or pineapple would be acid producing for your body. BUT that assumption is flawed.
When foods are broken down acids are produced that are neutralised by alkaline mineral salts like magnesium, calcium, potassium and sodium.
The types of foods that we eat affect our acid-alkaline balance.
Most vegetables are alkaline forming and contain calcium, potassium, magnesium and sodium.
On the other hand, animal proteins, dairy and grains tend to be acid forming and contain chlorine, phosphorous, sulphur and nitrogen.
What foods will help to alkalise you?
Sweet potatoes Parsnips Mushrooms
Broccoli Cauliflower Cabbage
Kale Parsley Rocket
Bell peppers Pumpkin Aubergine / Egg plant
Watermelon Raspberries Blueberries
Pineapple Peach Melons
Pears Cherry Apples
