Balance Body Chemistry for Fat Loss & Health

Balance Body Chemistry for Fat Loss & Health

We’ve all heard about the ravages of acid rain.  Resulting from toxic emissions in the environment, acid rain damages the leaves and needles on trees, reduces a tree’s ability to withstand cold, drought, disease, and pests, and even inhibits or prevents plant reproduction.  To combat the acidity, tree roots pull important alkalizing nutrients like calcium and magnesium from the soil.

An acid-forming diet and lifestyle is like acid rain in our bodies.  We are essentially microcosms of the same problems our planet faces.  The difference is that most of us are aware that we are polluting the planet, yet few of us realize that we are subjecting our bodies to similar acid waste.

But by making a few simple changes to your diet and lifestyle to balance your body’s pH you’ll experience incredible healing results like increased energy, resistance to colds and flu, the reduction or elimination of pain, and powerful potential to restore the health of your body.  Many people who balance their body chemistry ward off heart disease, arthritis, osteoporosis, diabetes, kidney disease, and cancer.

Imagine that acid and alkaline are two teams in a tug-of-war contest, each one holding the end of a long rope and trying to shift the balance to its side, and you’ll have a good sense of what happens every single second in your body.  The pH spectrum ranges from 0 to 14, with 7 being neutral in the middle.  Zero to 6.9 is acidic, while 7.1 to 14 is alkaline.  When your pH balance tips toward either the acidic or the alkaline side of the spectrum, you are vulnerable to a variety of health problems.

As for lemons, I've read that they acidify the body to such an extent that women who eat lemons later give birth to weak and sickly babies.
