Balancing Your pH in the Body:

 

The body has an incredible homodynamic control system built around maintaining pH levels.  These innate buffering systems include getting rid of excess acid or base by products through the lungs, skin, saliva, & urine.  The most common problem with pH balancing is keeping up with the excess metabolic acids.

Acids are produced from a lack of oxygen, emotional stress, poor diet, environmental toxins, cellular inflammation and metabolic waste products.  One of the biggest challenges many individuals have is maintaining a healthy pH range all day and night.

We are constantly encountering different stressors that drain our alkaline reserves and leave us in an acidic state.  Here are a few simple strategies that I have found to maintain a healthy pH all day and night.  The benefit of applying these advanced techniques is higher energy, mental clarity, and emotional stability.

Celery:

This water-rich veggie is an excellent acid neutralizer.  You can eat it before, during, or after a meal.  It contains a perfect electrolyte balance that powerfully quenches thirst and re-energizes & alkalizes your body.  This is great for easy snacking during the day between meals to maintain healthy hydration & alkalinity.

Aloe Vera Juice:

This is incredibly alkalizing and loaded with electrolytes, trace minerals, anti-oxidants, and polysaccharides.  Pure aloe juice or gel gives one of the quickest alkaline boosts.  This is an ideal drink before or after a large meal.  Apple cider vinegar is another great booster that can be used with aloe vera or without it.

Fennel Seeds:

This is a concentrated form of minerals like calcium, potassium, manganese, magnesium, selenium, zinc, copper, & iron.  Additionally, it is rich in the powerful flavinoid anti-oxidants kaempferol & quercetin.   Fennel seeds neutralize acids, aid in digestion, and are an incredibly good breath freshener.  

This is perfect when you are in a hurry, on the road, or eating out at restaurants.  Simply put a small container of fennel seeds in your purse or car and pop these seeds throughout the day to keep your breath fresh and your saliva alkaline.
