3 days ago I fished my pH papers out of my bathroom cabinet and placed them in a handy place. Thought ‘good’ , the stage is now set. All I need to do is remember to hold test paper mid flow when I tinkle and voila! my body pH displayed in colour. Crazy girl, I hear you say, she’s got rats in the attic!
In case you are baffled let me explain. Disease cannot live in a slightly alkaline, oxygenated environment! Free radicals don’t stand a chance to do any damage. A slightly alkaline body (pH 7.36) is crucial for good health. And we all have a tendency to swing over to the acidic side, below 7. Caused by modern living (stress) and processed food and refined carbs and ….no need to go on.
Well I decided it was time to monitor and manage my pH. My last cold took just too long to go, I have some aches and pains that are too boring to describe, “And I am too young and fit from Nia classes, for this” I hear myself say regularly. All these signs of inflammation need addressing. pH papers to the rescue.
yes pee was acidic first thing in the morning, and also in the afternoon. Not good.
But the great news is that my pH levels have already changed within 3 days. Well and truly alkaline. One important thing I added to my diet was a large green alkalising vegetable juice freshly made every morning. This time I decided not to add that ½ apple I used to add to make it more palatable. Instead I added half a lemon (with rind) and a small lump of fresh ginger. Happy body
And the aches are diminishing daily. How to make a green vegetable juice? Coming very soon. Let me know below if you have played with pH papers and green vegetable juices.
