Is Alkalinity Important to Your Health?
If you have looked at the various pages on my website you’ll see I’ve referred to the term alkaline – or pH. If this is a new term for you, you are not alone! Perhaps you or someone you know has a swimming pool. That was my first exposure to this term, although I didn’t understand as a young girl how profound the testing of the water would be later in my life as I’ve educated others on this subject. All I knew was I needed reach down into to the pool and get some water, then the fun step was to put the drops in the tester to see the magic occur!
Now if you were a swimming pool you would want to have a certain alkaline level to be at your best….but you aren’t a pool– you are a human being….so what do you need???
I recently found this picture – It’s an easier way to remember what is good:
The face says it all! The more alkaline you are, the healthier you are….Each day we make choices which directly or indirectly affect our health – the food we eat, the environment we live in, the stress of our day, the air we breath, the quality of sleep we get — either move us to the left or the right. If you are dealing with a lot of stress or a health issue, you can now see the pH you are experiencing in your body. So what can you do to move you to a more healthy pH?
First, let me set the record straight! I am not suggesting you overhaul everything you eat or drink to make a change. Simple solutions to support you are available. What I’ve found is the more we are eating, drinking, sleeping in and surrounding ourselves and our families (furry children included) with alkaline “tools” the better!!!
Here are some books I’ve read that have helped me learn about the importance of alkalinity:
- Alkazine or Die – by Theodore Baroody
- Your Body’s Many Cries for Water – by Dr. F. Batmanghelidj
- Reverse Aging – by Sang Whang
Here is a short video of Dr. Batmanghelidj:
