Alkalize Your Body to Get Healthy and Reach Your Ideal Weight
by David Victor
(NaturalNews) If you are suffering from disease or weight problems, the problem may be an overly acidic body. According to the philosophy called New Biology, all disease is caused by an acidic body. If you alkalize your body through proper eating and healthy living, you can overcome disease and reach your ideal body weight.
Dr. Robert O. Young developed the concept of New Biology. Dr. Young and his wife, Shelly Redford Young, teach people how to alkalize their body for optimal health. According to their teachings, all disease is caused by over-acidification of the body and by reducing the acidity in your body you can achieve optimal health.
One of the most obvious signs of acidity is excess body fat. When your body is acidic, it will do anything it can to neutralize the acid. One of the ways it does this is to store excess acid in fat which can lead to you being overweight. When you alkalize your diet and lifestyle, your body will get rid of the excess fat.
An acidic body can also be too skinny because it allows yeast and fungus to thrive. The yeast and fungus consume the nutrients that you need which can leave you underweight, lethargic, and sick.
High cholesterol is another potential side effect of acidic blood. Your body cannot let acid damage your arteries so it coats them with cholesterol. While this helps protect you in the short term, in the long run this can lead to complete blockage. Fortunately, if you alkalize your body, it will get rid of the cholesterol it no longer needs.
To alkalize an acidic body, you need to eat more alkalizing foods and less acidic foods. Once you know which kinds of foods are alkalizing and which are acidic, you can create a healthy diet that will help you reach your ideal weight without starving yourself.
The first part of alkalizing your body is to eat more alkalizing foods. Most vegetables have an alkalizing effect on your body and green vegetables tend to be the best. Sprouts are also very alkaline and so is wheat grass. You can even take health supplements made from vegetables and healthy grasses. If you focus on making sure you have alkalizing foods with every meal, you will be on your way to an alkaline body.
The second part of alkalizing your body is to reduce the amount of acidic foods you eat. Sugary and processed foods are usually acidic. Saturated fats, meats, and dairy products also have an acidic effect on the body. If you are going to eat these types of foods, do it in moderation and make sure you have an alkalizing food with it.
When you start making changes to alkalize your body, it will release stored toxins. You may feel sick because the toxins are being released back into your system, but this will pass once you eliminate them from your system. Make sure you drink lots of water so your body can flush them out of your system.
Stay tuned for more articles that will give you more specifics about alkalizing your body.
