Acid Alkaline Confusion? Stop this!

An acid-alkaline confusion!

Today there are an abundance Information:

• Acid vs alkaline foods
• The acid and alkaline food which is
• acid and alkaline ash

All three have different meanings and create enough confusion to launch a mobile eye competition between naturopathic and allopathic when the subject arises.

Many doctors say there is no such thing as the acid and alkaline forming foods. May inform you that your body keeps a close watch on the pH of the blood with smart systems in place. This is usually in discussion with your doctor is going to end.

Then you go to your naturopathic doctor, who can say something like: "Your diet is very acidic, and is contributing to their condition."
Now you are confused, as the doctor only I said that is a load of nonsense!

Who is right? Both are!

Blood PH

The pH of the Blood keeps a close eye on a range of 7.35 to 7.45, making it slightly alkaline. The body controls the pH of whole blood
3 sets key;

• Respiratory
• Kidney
• intracellular buffer system

When you breathe, you inhale oxygen (O2) and exhale carbon dioxide (CO2). CO2 is used for the production of carbonic acid to regulate pH through the respiratory system.

If your blood becomes too acidic, such as during vigorous exercise due to accumulation of lactic acid in muscles, your body starts to hyperventilate to eliminate as much CO2 from the blood as possible in the shortest space of time. Breathing can change the pH of the blood in minutes!
On the other part of the renal system that filters the extracellular fluid and excrete the excess acids or alkaline minerals in the urine will be a day to adjust the pH. The system kidney can only be corrected excess:

• mineral acids (acidosis) or
• mineral alkaline (alkalosis)

by filtering from outside the body.

intracellular buffer system works well which requires a:

• Protein or
• rock phosphate

With mineral acids to be neutral. The most common protein in question is hemoglobin, the main component of blood.

pH of food

Acid Alkaline confusion begins with the taste of food. The pH scale:

• 0-14
• 0 – More acidic
• 14 – more alkaline
• The middle is neutral at 7

The foods we eat ranges from acidic to neutral or alkaline. Lemons and limes have an acidic pH, the meat has a neutral pH as water, tea and tofu are alkaline. These are the pH readings would be obtained if you were to use the strip pH of the food itself. The readings will also be confirmed by how the food tasted in the mouth, ie, if the taste of a lemon you'll realize that it is acidic.

Acid vs. alkaline forming foods

Food is, consists of organic salts:

• Sodium
• Potassium
• Calcium and
• Magnesium

Which are alkaline, and:

• Chloride
• Phosphorus and
• Sulfur

What are all acid. Some of these salts are used to make acids in the body, such as:

• chloride to produce hydrochloric acid in the stomach
• Phosphorus, sulfur produces phosphoric acid and sulfuric

These acid minerals are what we refer to as the formation of acidic foods, ie:

• Food which are mostly composed of mineral acids.

alkaline forming foods are:

• Food which are mostly made of alkalizing minerals such as potassium, calcium and magnesium.

• Main uses alkaline minerals to the formation of teeth, bones and muscles healthy functioning.


If a food is to burn, and analyzed the content of ash other, whether I would find an abundance of mineral acid or alkaline. So even if a sour lemon flavor and has an acid pH, the ashes would be predominantly alkaline minerals. If we were to burn the flesh to ashes ashes we find that mainly consists of mineral acid, although its pH is neutral!

Digestion can be compared to burning, but no ash remaining. work of digestion is to take a separate food to construction, ie blocks:

• Amino Acids
• Minerals
• Vitamins
• Glucose
• Enzymes
• Fatty acids, etc …

What are then ready for transport around the body cells where it is used to feed both the cell and produce a new substance as a hormone.

80/20 Rule

To keep your body healthy and happy you should aim to eat:

• 80% of the alkaline minerals forming foods and
• 20% of mineral acid forming foods

As a general rule, most fruits and vegetables are alkaline forming while the meats, coffee, alcohol and carbonated beverages are acid forming.
Drink plenty of alkaline water:

• Mineral water with high content of alkaline minerals

Throughout the day not only help eliminate toxins, but also provide an abundance of alkaline minerals to neutralize excess mineral acids.

What is advertising on the acid forming foods anyway?

When systems responsible for maintaining the pH under control are overloaded – We have a problem, literally!

The overload is usually caused by excessive exposure to mineral acid formation:

• Food
• Beverages
• Pharmaceuticals and recreational drugs
• Cigarettes
• Exhaust fumes
• Pesticides
• Herbicides
• No organic cosmetics and personal hygiene products
• Negative feelings and emotions
• Illness and
• Malnutrition alkaline mineral formation by a poor food choices.

The excess acid forming minerals are stored in:

• Joints
• The skin and
• Extracellular fluid

As far as possible of key organs. So we end up with a runny nose, a break in the skin or eczema, signals from the body trying to rid of excessive toxic waste.

acid medium, no life support and leads to cell death. Attract decaying cells:

• Bacteria
• Viruses
• Yeasts and
• Moulds

They feed on the decomposing remains and produce their residues, which are acidic and aggravate the problem.

There is a balance of good and bad bacteria in the digestive tract. When we eat healthy foods and healthy good intestinal flora is happy and helps combat bad gut flora, but when the environment is polluted with evil flourishes intestinal flora and can lead to a disease state.

Chronic degenerative diseases, such as:

• Arthritis
• Diabetes
• Gout
• autoimmune conditions
• Asthma
• Eczema and
• Cancer

Start with excess toxicity. These conditions respond well to predominantly organic vegetarian diet is inherently alkaline.

Mind over matter

Negative emotions are toxic can be demonstrated as follows:

Remember the last time I got scared and went into a state of panic. Maybe it was when they were sitting in the plane and only remembered that he left the stove and forgot to close the garage, or when you realize you lost the keys to his car stopped on a dark street, deserted … .. I'm sure you get the picture. What is the first thing that happens when you get a scare like that? Your heart starts pounding, you can feel in your head and neck. The faster the heart beats faster your breathing becomes. You are hyperventilating to get rid of excess acid accumulate, tight muscles and heart beating super fast!


• Stick to the 80/20 rule
• Eat plenty of organic alkaline forming foods, such as:
Or Fruit
Vegetables or
Nuts or
Seeds or
Legumes or

• Drink plenty of:
or alkaline water
or herbal teas
freshly squeezed vegetable or

• Exercise regularly the clean fresh air and sunshine
• Adopt an organic lifestyle by using organic non-toxic:
Cosmetics or
or hygiene products personal
or cleaning products
Since the recent or clothes!

• Surround yourself with a positive fact of inspiration:
or Music
O Books
O People

Finding a way to serve and give to causes dear to his heart to help you have a sense of purpose and that is the key to keep all the negative self talk away!

Wheatgrass Juicers Review

wheatgrass juicers review

What is the best exhaust for sale?

People are always trying to figure out what is the best juicer. In my eyes, there is no perfect juicer there. However, there is such a thing as the best juicer for you! In my view, the best juicer for you is the juicer that will make you want juice every day. And, of course, that's going to vary from person to person. But do not worry, I have described different aspects you should look for when finding that juicer for you!

Centrifugal Juicers

If you are just entering juice and I do not want to spend much time, probably should look a centrifugal juicer. Was played at very high speeds and parts can easily be thrown in the dishwasher. juice fast, quick cleaning. These are machines large, but have some downfalls. They work very well with hard fruits and vegetables, but do not work very well with leafy greens or wheatgrass. Moreover, high-speed who are less developed may help promote the loss of enzymes and valuable nutrients. However, these juicers still produce healthy juice that can be purchased in a grocery store. Therefore, if you are not interested in green leafy vegetables and is not necessary to have a healthy juice possible, have a centrifugal extractor. You'll love it!

Mastication Juicers

If you are a bit more serious about the nutritional value of juice, or if you want to be able to juice green leafy vegetables, you should look for in a mastication juicer. They are all destined to wheat grass so if you want wheat grass juice often, make sure you have a wheat grass juicer. They come in all varieties of mastication juicer. mastication juicers require a bit more time than centrifugal pumps, but produce healthy juices and can be used as a food processor. They come in a few variations:

Single Gear

squeezers chewing or have a team that bites into the fruit or two. single computer juicers tend to have a lower RPM, but the juice extraction process itself is faster. This is because there is only one place to curb the production passes through the camera what is sent through the machine more quickly. Fall: an extraction rate of a little lower. However, the number of gears does not change the quality of the juice. Therefore, if you are looking for a juicer healthy, but would like a relatively quick process juice, this is a great type of juicer for you!

Twin Arts

twin gear, it simply means that there are two augers chewing on their production to extract the juice. These pumps produce a very high yield of juice what is sent through them. The disadvantage is that the best performance usually somewhat slower process. However, if you are a fan of juice and do not mind spending a little juices extra time, this is the perfect choice for you!


Cold-Press Masticating squeezers have engines operate at a speed of 80 RPM and 200 RPM. This speed range ensures that the nutritional enzymes are not lost unnecessarily oxidation, which is recommended when the juice is heated. In other words, it means the engine is turning slowly enough to ensure that the juice is not heated because when the juice is heated, the enzymes escape. A need defined for all health nuts! Only downside: higher juice extraction process due to low speeds.

Price Range

Blenders all shapes and sizes so you can probably find one that fits your price range. As a general rule, however, the most expensive the juicer, the longer and the more you can handle (and often the longer warranty.) If you would actually like to begin extracting juice, consider it an investment. If you buy a cheap juicer crashes all the time and falls apart, you will feel as though you've wasted your money and you will find the bitter feeling towards the extraction of juice. However, if you really want the juice and do your research and find that the blender, to meet their needs extraction juice, you will be so happy you spent the extra time and money that will never stop juice!
