There are many acidic foods that may erode your alkaline health one meal at a time. A proven way to counter yourself and your family from the side effects of acidic foods is to follow the 80/20 rule of the alkaline diet. Simply put, for every 20 percent of acid-forming foods you consume you should add 80 percent of alkalizing foods to your diet. That way you’ll keep your Ph levels and body happy.
(Note: Not all acidic foods are acid-forming in your body. The lemon, for example, is an acidic fruit. However, when consumed it is alkaline forming in your body, because it is loaded with calcium, magnesium and potassium.)
Supplement your diet with alkaline minerals.
There are certain alkaline minerals that help restore Ph balance in your body–and they’re easy to get.
The main alkalizing minerals are calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium. These minerals complement each other in your body. For example, calcium is needed to contract a muscle and magnesium is needed to relax it. So, you need both.
Calcium and Magnesium
Without calcium our brain, muscles, and nerves would not work properly.
The best source of calcium in food is green leafy vegetables. Some fresh vegetables, such as broccoli, cabbage, and spinach, contain calcium. So do almonds, sesame seeds, and soft-boned fish, like sardines and salmon.
The body requires magnesium to maintain energy and vitality. When magnesium is deficient in the body, the body forms lactic acid. Low levels of magnesium are associated with migraine headaches, nervousness, insomnia, and heart palpitations. So, make sure you get adequate amounts of magnesium.
Eat Potassium-rich Foods
What about potassium? Potassium is essential for muscular activity, particularly so for that tireless muscle, the heart.
If you do not get enough potassium, you may suffer from weakness of muscles, poor reflexes, back pain, headaches, constipation or sleeplessness. You may also find yourself subject to apathy, listlessness, depression or mental confusion. Extreme lack of potassium can increase the risk of a heart attack.
What’s more, at a cellular level your cells maintain a balance of potassium inside and sodium outside, but this pumping of potassium and sodium requires magnesium.
The calcium concentration in cells is controlled by sodium. You see all four of these minerals work together in the body. Most importantly, these minerals are critical in keeping your body, organs and tissue Ph balanced.
Problems arise in the body when one or more of the minerals are deficient or when the minerals are out of balance with each other.
Things like stress, age, pollution, diet and many other factors deplete your body of these critical minerals and make your body less efficient at removing waste and acid deposits from your blood, tissues and organs. And so your body becomes dangerously acidic!
STEP 1 – you should supplement your diet with these critical minerals to restore Ph balance to your body.
STEP 2 – you must eat more alkalizing foods to help your body eliminate waste effectively and resort its critical Ph balance.
STEP 3 – Drink ionized alkaline water that has these minerals in them.
