It’s a beautiful day out today. Lots of sunshine, which is always nice. FYI – it’s good to make sure you get some natural vitamin D, even in the winter. A quick walk for 15-20 minutes should do the trick. Just a little tidbit for ya to start this Friday off.
Onto other things. As some may know, I’ve am a big advocate for maintaining a healthy pH level in your body to stay healthy and help fight off illnesses.
I found a site that explains a lot of this at AcidAlkalineDiet.net. Here’s one thing they mention about Cancer and what the major factors are:
Here are two factors that are ALWAYS present with Cancer no matter what else may be present.
Those two factors are:
Acidic pH, and
Lack of Oxygen
I found another chart that lists foods and their pH levels (below). I really like how this chart also lists things like “stress” and “lack of sleep”, so it shows you how harmful these things can be to our health. You want to eat as much alkaline foods as possible (and avoid the stress, etc). I’ve heard 60% to 40% alkaline to acidic is good for healthy people and anyone suffering from decease or illness should try to get theirs to 80% to 20%. Of course it’s hard to be perfect but I find if you can be consistent your levels should stay pretty solid.
I believe (not all do) that the bottom line is keeping your pH level between 7.0 and 7.4 is optimum (you can also have problems if you are to high on the alkaline side).
I usually check my urine first thing in the morning every few days to see where my levels are at. You can purchase strips from this site here. A roll will probably last you 2-3 months so it’s quite affordable. That reminds me, I’m due for another pack of strips.
Does anyone else check their levels? I’d be interested in what you think about it… or if anyone disagrees, please leave a comment and let me know why you feel this way. Of course, it’s different for everyone. I feel this helps me focus on something and feel confident when I’m following it properly. Whatever works best for each individual!
Lots of love,
