Did you know that a normal body is alkaline? Yes, a normal body state is alkaline. It only became acidic thru the food we eat (junk foods, fast foods, softdrinks, etc.) especially nowadays that we are living in a fast phase modern life. Having an acidic body will makes us prone to illnesses including cancer.
According to Dr. Otto Warberg (1931 Nobel Prize winner for cancer discovery):“Disease cannot live in an alkaline body. No disease, including cancer, can exist in an alkaline environment.”
Why?Here are some of the typical answers:
Alkaline body actually contains lots of antioxidants that blocks free radicals. When free radicals out-numbered the antioxidants, they can cause cell mutation and can lead to cancer.
Alkaline body contains saturated amount of oxygen. Since alkaline substances can easily give up electrons, it will react to free radicals resulting to production of oxygen. Most illnesses including cancer cannot live in an oxygen-saturated environment.
With lots of antioxidants in our body, our immune system will become stronger and can fght diseases. Just what I mentioned above, normal body state is alkaline.
Having an alkaline body system can actually detoxify itself. It can remove acidic wastes and prevents accumulation of toxins in our body.
How do can we make our body alkaline?
One of the easiest ways to make your body alkaline is to eat lots of raw fruits (except mangoes and pineapples) and vegetables especially the green-leafy ones. Raw fruits and vegetables contains natural nutriets, amino acids, enzymes vitamins and minerals. This is one of the reason why Healing Galing’s detox protocol includes lots of raw green-leafy vegetables.
Of course, avoid acidic foods. Mangoes and pineapples are actually acidic in nature even when ripe. Sinigang and other foods containing vinegar must be avoided. I am not saying you should totally avoid such food but you must take them in moderation.
But the easiest and considered to be cheapest is to drink lots of alkaline water. The next question is where to find alkaline water? Some water-refilling stations offer this but with a higher price compared to regular distilled or purified water. If you cannot find a water-refilling station, you can actually do it at your home. I will make a separate post on this.
Now, at home, we are actually doing some steps to alkalize our body by eating more fruits and vegetables, less meat, and take alkaline water.Good day and stay healthy!
