I feel like a pool being tested for chlorine. My mom left these ph strips for me to test my alkaline levels.
I can’t go crazy with nutritional stuff……if it’s complicated I get too overwhelmed and won’t do anything. I let my mom read all the books and then she filters the important information to me. So, here’s what I know about testing your ph in a nutshell according to my mother:
:: Diseases like cancer, heart disease, arthritis, osteoporosis, etc are associated with excess acidity in the body.
:: Cancer cannot exist in an alkaline environment.
:: Things I eat that causes my body to be too acidic: beef, artificial sweeteners (Splenda ugh), cheese, soft drinks
:: Things I can eat to bring my body the other way to alkaline: olive oil, broccoli, almonds, celery grapes, raw spinach
My takeaway: I ate donuts this morning…..but I also ate a ton of celery, cucumbers and a little cheese for lunch. It all balances out.
