The Importance of Alkalisation in the Body
This week, let’s talk about a key factor in health and wellbeing – having an alkaline body! Having an alkaline body promotes gut health, cellular regeneration and creates an environment which is very difficult for free radical cells to form. But what does this mean? Alkalising the body means to create an internal ecosystem that greatly reduces inflammation, strengthens bones, fights disease and fatigue, improves weight loss and boosts the good bacteria in the body for improved gut health. We can make the switch to a more alkaline diet by reducing things like red meat, coffee, dairy, sugar, processed foods and fast foods for fruits, vegetables, herbs, nuts, seeds and herbal teas. Some other benefits of improving the body’s pH levels include
- Hormone stabilisation
- Improvement of bone complications like osteoporosis
- Improves cellular regeneration
- Free radical cell prevention
- Kidney health
- Treating or preventing heart disease
- Improved levels of nutrients in the body
- Increase of antioxidants in the body
- Improved blood sugar levels
When we talk about pH levels this means the body’s level of acidity. We scale foods and beverages on a scale of 1 – 7 as acidic and 7 – 14 as being nutrient rich and alkaline. Our bodies naturally function best in a slightly alkaline state – 7.2 on the pH scale.
It’s easy to measure your current pH levels by using a pH Test and Book. At herbsonlineshop.com we stock pH test strips to accurately test your body’s pH level. When you purchase the EASYpH test kit, you receive a booklet which includes valuable information on acid-alkaline balance, weight-loss tips, an alkaline food chart, and much more.
The only way you can find out if you are acid, alkaline or correctly balanced, is by testing your pH. Using the testing strips is an easy process and provides accuracy on your current levels of acidity. The booklet is filled with useful ways to adjust your pH levels to a more balanced level and teaches you how to use food as your remedy.
This is an excellent, inexpensive way of keeping track with how your body is coping with stress, food choices and medications.
If you are wanting to improve your body’s alkalinity, I would also recommend our Alkalising Herbal. This is an extract designed for producing optimal alkalinity in the body by using key ingredients to fight free-radical damage and reduce inflammation. These wonderful herbs are powerful, and a step I like to include for all patients who would like to improve their overall health and wellbeing. Alkalising Herbal contains the liquid herbal extracts of dandelion root, stinging nettle, turmeric, yellow dock and burdock root.
It should also be noted that Liver Tonic is efficient in helping the liver to regenerate healthy liver cells and boosts the organ’s ability to filter toxins from the blood. When improving your pH, the body is removing toxins so supporting the liver in this process is a great idea. Liver Tonic is a herbal combination containing herbal extract of St Marys Thistle, Dandelion root, Globe Artichoke and Burdock Extracts. We use these ingredients because they help improve symptoms of liver disease and fatty liver. You will notice from earlier in the blog that an alkaline body supports hormone levels and stabilises blood sugar, this is greatly to do with the improved function of the liver from an alkaline diet.
