The Alkaline Lifestyle
The alkaline lifestyle, as some call it, has been adopted by thousands of people, including some famous and influential individuals. If you’ve heard of people “alkalizing” and focusing on “alkaline foods”, and you are wondering what all the fuss is about, I’ll try to explain it for you here.
In short, alkalizing is about bringing the pH of your body into balance. It is about getting the pH of the body into a slightly alkaline state where the body functions best. As you probably know, a lot of foods can increase acid in the gut and other parts of the body. The alkaline lifestyle aims to remedy this by changing the way we eat and drink to make us healthier, and to help us live longer.
So the “alkaline lifestyle” may consist of:
- eating an alkalinity-promoting diet
- drinking alkalized water
- using green drinks and supplements that promote alkalinity
- cutting back on acid-producing foods and drinks
Foods known to be acid promoting include meats and dairy. Because of this, many people who choose to live the alkaline lifestyle either become vegetarian or vegan. Many others simply cut back on the offending foods, and eat diets higher in vegetables, fruits, and other alkaline-producing foods.
What results do people get when living an alkaline lifestyle?
- They often feel healthier overall, having more energy and better moods
- They usually lose weight
- They are often less prone to illnesses
- They experience fewer physical aches and pains
- They have more physical endurance and stamina
These are just a few common benefits of living the alkaline lifestyle. Each individual is different, and many people experience much more in terms of benefits.
That’s the essence of the alkaline lifestyle, and why “alkalizing” is so important and powerful for the people who put it into practice. The only thing left for you to do is to put it into practice for yourself, and let your body and your mind work at their full capacity!
