Alkalizing Your Body With Juice

by Michael Griffin

Alkalizing your body is all the buzz these days, you can buy water alkzlizers and all sorts of things to help you to this goal. Alkalization seems to be a good thing and so I looked into it.

It has been said that the Gerson cancer diet is based on alkalizing and detoxing the blood.  Most people have heard of the benefits of an alkaline diet but few know how to go about starting one and that is the point of this article, to provide you basic information on the subject and how to do it with juice. 

Alkalinity And Your Blood

Most people eat too many processed foods, sugar, and white flour.  This tends to cause acidity in your system.  There are buffering systems in your body that keeps the blood at a constant ph (or acidity level) but a bad diet over many years can overwhelm these systems and lead to serious illness or death.  Your body being too acid for too long will also decay your teeth and bones as your body robs important elements from them to maintain your blood ph.

If you look at foods that have an alkalizing effect on your body you will find a list of fruits and vegetables, for example:

Apples
Watermelon
Bananas
Lemons
Rasins
Cantaloupe
Celery
Alfalfa Sprouts
Limes
Mango

Likewise these kinds of foods cause acidity:

Alcohol
Salt
Soft Drinks
Tobacco
Sugar
Meats
Most Breads

If you replace some of that with items from the first list you will begin to alkalize your body and avoid problems.  An easy way to do that is to add juices to your diet.  The problem of eating foods from the first list is most people don't usually like the flavor or the bulk of items required.  If you put them in juice it is easy and tasty to alkalize.

Here is a sample juice recipe to get you started, you can find many others by using Google.

1 cup of spinach
1/2 cup of cucumber
2 stalks of celery including the leaves
3 carrots
1/2 apple (juice it all)

The skin of the dark green cucumber is magic, not only for feeding alkalinity but it is an excellent source of chlorophyll that will help build up your red blood cells, it also adds silica which is good for your skin.

Start by adding a glass of juice to your diet every day, you will feel the difference within 7 days as an energy boost as you begin to alkalize.  After the week you'll want to investigate a Green Juice Fast.  There is nothing like a healthy juice cleanse to reset your life.
