Can Alkaline Foods Prevent Colds And Diseases?
Do your suffer from Acidosis?
According to Acidalkalinediet.net “Acidosis is an increased acidity in the blood and other body tissue. Acidosis is said to occur when arterial pH falls below 7.35. The pH level of our blood affects every cell in our body. Chronic acidosis corrodes body tissue, and if left unchecked, will interrupt all cellular activities and functions”.
If you are lethargic, feeling irritable or anxious, or suffer from frequent colds, low energy, digestion issues, muscle pain, mild headaches, joint pain or bad breath, you may want to consider a more alkaline diet, because these symptoms are signs of mild acidosis.
Eating sugar, processed foods and meat are highly acidic and take a toll on the body.
Greenopedia.com says that “If we are not eating enough alkaline-forming foods, then our body has to pull these minerals from our bones, teeth and organs. This can compromise our immune system, cause fatigue and make us vulnerable to viruses and disease“.
Pretty scary eh?
Yes, diet affects the PH balance, but other things can affect the PH balance as well such as anger, taking drugs, smoking cigarettes, and stress.
These things can create inflammation in your body.
According to MindBodyGreen.com drinking lemon water in the morning has many benefits including:
- Boosts your immune system
- Balances PH
- Helps with weight loss
- Aids digestion
- Acts as a gentle natural diuretic
- Clears skin
- Hydrates the lymph system
Lemons are an excellent source of vitamin C and a good source of B complex vitamins.
They have powerful antibacterial properties and are alkalizing for the body.
Why Hot Water Instead of Cold?
Drinking it warm helps extract vitamin C and Polyphenols from both the lemon and its peel.
Stress releases cortisol, which is an acid forming hormone.
There are many ways to reduce stress through seeing a therapist, exercising, or even practicing meditation and yoga.

The best way to have a healthy acid alkaline balance is to consume 50 – 80% alkaline foods.
