glad tidings to the strangers
Having a balanced body PH important. We dont want to be too alkaline or too acidic. We want to be just right. Dr. Robert O. Young of The PH Miracle says our body fluids are alkaline right around 7.4 and when that gets out of balance it creates a perfect environment for disease. Just like a swimming pool that’s PH is off starts growing fungus and bacteria, so will you. Foods are categorized as acidic/alkaline by the “ash” they leave behind or in other words the waste product that’s left as a result of digestion. Acid-alkaline [dot] com gives a good explanation…”
All foods are “burned” in the body–more commonly called “digested”– leaving an ash as the result of the “burning”, or the digestion. This food ash can be neutral, acid or alkaline, depending largely on the mineral composition of the foods.” Lemons and limes, though their juice is acidic, their ash is alkaline. Phbalance.wikispaces [dot] com states “Citric Acid is a “weak” acid, meaning once it’s done it’s job in providing energy in metabolism it’s eliminated easily via sweat and respiration. It is alkaline forming in that it stimulates the formation of calcium carbonate in the body…In fruits such as the Lemons…the mineral content is also taken into consideration, and Lemon’s Alkaline minerals are many, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and selenium so after the citric acid has done its job…one is left with a very Alkaline Ash (end product).” Greens also leave an alkaline ash, so if you feel a little off balance, you can take a few of these shotz a day until you feel like your back on point. These are also great just to take once daily to get your greens and to maintain a balanced PH.
NOTE: If you do not take in a lot of greens regularly or you feel like your system may be WAY off balance. Dilute these shotz with juice or water.
RECIPE: 1 lemon,1 lime, 2 bunches of the greens of your choice ( I used parsley and beet greens). Using a juice extractor, bunch up the greens and put them into the juicer, follow with the lemon and lime to rinse them through.
