Ever wondered what tissue Alkalinity is, and if you are acidic or alkaline? Well, we want you to find out (and share your journey with us).
A high-acid diet can influence the body’s risk for osteoporosis, sarcopenia (muscle loss), fractures and kidney stone formation – and possibly diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease. It’s a by-product of today’s increasingly acidic diet of sugar, alcohol, red meat, dairy products and coffee, teamed with pollution and stress.
According to Dr. Laubscher our bodies were designed to function at an alkaline state. Ideally at a pH range of 7.35-7.45. Dr. Laubscher explains further the dangers of a high-acid diet...
“The theory is that a high-acid diet creates a
breeding ground for disease and leads to poor health.
If you’re getting aching joints, gaining weight, craving carbs or sugar,
or you have brain fog, then you’re running too acidic”
The solution? A majority plant-based diet featuring lots of foods like kale, sprouts, quinoa, almonds, avocado and coconut oil, and less of the toxic, acid forming foods, all supplemented by THE SUPER ELIXIRTM Alkalising Greens.
According to The China Study launched in partnership between Cornell University, Oxford University, and the Chinese Academy of Preventative Medicine (the largest comprehensive study of human nutrition ever conducted) people who ate the most plant-based foods were the healthiest, and people who at the most animal-based foods got the most chronic disease. That’s the snapshot. Read More.
From the Experts
“The theory behind the Alkaline Diet is that eating a diet high in alkaline-producing foods will minimise acid build-up in our bodies (which fuels inflammation, aging and weight gain). When you ingest too many acidic foods, your pH levels get disrupted, causing weight gain and disease.’’
Dr. Stephen Domenig, author of The Alkaline Cure.
