Our pH is extremely important and determines our health. What exactly is pH? pH is the measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a substance. The pH scale runs from 0-14, a lower number means a high level of acidity and high level indicates a higher level of alkalinity is present (You can test your pH levels by using a piece of litmus paper in your saliva or urine first thing in the morning before eating or drinking anything). The more acidity your body has the more likely you are to get sick!
What causes pH imbalance? Eating fast food, refined sugars, red meats, and processed foods. It is amazing the impact that nutrition has in our lives. Throughout our lives we eat unhealthy not realizing we are damaging our health! It can take years for a disease to appear in your body! The great news is that you can change your pH balance by eating healthy, exercising, replacing white sugars with more alkaline sweeteners, such as stevia or agave (stevia is great because it helps lower blood sugar levels). Drink water with lemon in the mornings, lemon is the most alkaline fruit out there! By drinking a glass of water first thing in the morning you provide a much more alkaline environment in your body. Start detoxifying your body, it is NEVER too late to start!
