Now that you’ve dealt with that obligatory mince pie and festive punch, your thoughts are probably turning to what the heck to do to, when the time comes to clean up.
When your body’s pH levels are unbalanced, in other words, your body is too acidic, you are more likely to suffer from health problems and diseases.
Why? Acidic blood can be toxic to your cells, which could struggle to fight bacteria if they are damaged.
These damaged cells also carry less life-giving oxygen through the body, meaning you have less energy, and are again, at risk of disease.
However, you can help restore this balance and manage health issues efficiently and quickly. The first thing you need to do is identify elements in your life that are making you acidic. These acid-makers may be emotional stress or exhaustion, which can be fixed by daily rest, mindfulness, meditation, and gentle exercise.
Next on the agenda is to make some changes to your diet, that could help your body fight inflamed cells, by becoming alkaline. Acid-alkaline levels aside, doing this might make the world of different to your energy levels and general well-being.
Here are some things you can do to change up your diet and possibly help regulate your pH:
1. Drink this magical elixir
AKA lemon water. (Sorry it’s not more exciting). Once in the body, lemon becomes alkaline, so drop a slice of lemon into your water to help hydrate you and detoxify your liver.
2. Dine on alkaline
Try to eat foods on the “alkaline” list every day and make sure your meals include something green.
3. Blend it like Beckham
Having the right equipment makes eating healthy, wholesome meals a lot easier. Simply fill your mixer with superfoods and blend away baby.
