So I have a challenge for everyone this week. I want you to give a random person a fist bump or high five for no reason. Pay attention to how it made you feel or how you think it made the other person feel. You might be surprised at how it could change the entire day for one or both of you!
Lifestyle Hacks and Improvements
Balancing the Ph of your Body!
Acidic bodies are unhealthy bodies. When the body is overly acidic, it creates an unwanted environment where illness, bacteria, and yeast thrive. It also takes minerals from vital organs and bones to neutralize the acid and remove it from the body. Because of this, the body’s mineral reserves such as calcium, sodium, potassium, and magnesium can run dangerously low, causing damage that can go undetected for years until it reaches unhealthy levels and leads to acidosis.
Many people are already consuming enough acid forming foods, such as dairy, grains, meats, and sugar. Since the body is constantly generating acidic waste products from the metabolism, those waste products need to be neutralized or excreted in some way. In order to neutralize the constant acid generation, we need to supply the body with more alkaline foods and or supplements. If you would like to know more about how to alkalize your body with supplementation let me know. I have a super simple product that can be used.
