One of the best ways to deal with covid-19 is to keep your body alkaline, as maintaining a high alkaline level in your body makes it difficult for viruses and diseases of all kinds to flourish. Alkalizing your body simply means reducing its acidity, and you can do that by eating the right kind of foods. There are a lot of benefits to alkalizing your body. An alkalized body often results in more nights of peaceful, deep sleep; an increase in energy; and a reduction in weight.
Alkalizing your body also promotes mental alertness, reduces candida growth, improves memory, generates healthier tissues, ensures proper functioning of your cells, supports a healthier heart, and reduces the risk of chronic diseases and muscle degeneration.
Alkalizing your body is a gift that you can give yourself. Here are some simple
Not all acidic foods are bad.
This may seem counter-productive since you are trying to reduce acid levels in your body, but not all acidic foods are bad for you. Case in point: lemon. Lemon may be an acidic food, but it helps to alkalize your body instead of harm it. Add a few drops of lemon water to a glass of water and drink it first thing in the morning. This will increase your body’s metabolism and help detoxify all the acids and toxins in your body.
Another great way to alkalize your body is by adding green vegetables and fruits in your diet. Try a simple green salad with olive oil and sprinkle with some black pepper for seasoning. I always love a good green smoothie, loaded with fresh green spinach (organic if possible), rainbow chard or spring greens, plus bananas or berries blended with fresh spring or distilled water and ice. Nice and simple.
A for alkalizing. A for almonds
Try adding unsalted and raw almonds to your diet as a snack. Almonds contain naturally occurring alkaline, magnesium, and calcium, which help your body to balance your body’s blood sugar and acidity. Ideally, you can soak them overnight to make them more easily digestible, or to blend into almond milk.
Don’t choose the cow
Switch your milk to non-dairy, like almond milk or soy milk, because cow’s milk promotes more acid growth. There are some good brands out there too available in the local markets, like Oatly Oat milk, Rude Health, Alpro, Plenish, Eco mil Provomel. Try to avoid the ingredient carrageenan as it triggers inflammation. Ideally, you can make your own. It’s super simple with just a blender and a straining bag.
Move your Body
Exercise is vital to alkalizing your body. Even just fifteen minutes of exercise moves the acidic foods in your body to a position where it is easier to completely eliminate them from your body.
Meditate and Release Stress
Meditation can give you a sense of calm, peace and balance that can benefit both your emotional well-being and your overall health. And these benefits don’t end when your meditation session ends. Meditation can help carry you more calmly through your day and may help you manage symptoms of certain medical conditions.
When you meditate, you also clear away the information overload that builds up every day and contributes to your stress. Reducing your stress levels lowers cortisol which creates acidity in the body. You don’t have to be a guru, just find a quiet place, sit, or walk, breathe deeply and be still for at least 10 to 30 minutes. You’ll definitely feel the benefits.
Quit the meat
Try to consume as little meat as possible. Better yet, start a completely plant-based diet. Meat has a tendency to leave residual acid in your body even after it has been eliminated. Following a vegan or plant-based lifestyle has been proven time and time again to lower inflammation, reduce acid in the body, improve our mood and overall health. I’ve been fully plant-based for 10 years and love it!
No more sugar. No more soda.
Cut out all soda and sugar from your diet because they are nothing but empty calories. Choose water or green tea instead because they will detoxify your body from acidity.
An alkalized body is a balanced, happy body. Try integrating a few of these into your daily routine, and experience the difference of an alkalized body!
