PH, Minerals & Toxins
I found it very helpful to take pictures of my weight, close-ups of my eyes, whites of my eyes, sagging of my face, moles, freckles, wrinkles, stretch marks, and close-ups of my scalp to show hair thickness.
All these will improve and be more beautiful as I made changes in my lifestyle. It made me understand more and more how a healthy, alkaline, oxygenated body and face are so gorgeous.
And this gorgeousness belongs to everyone!
We just get back to the way animals have been living all along.
Very quickly on my road to regain my health, I discovered PH strips. You can get PH strips at health food stores or aquarium supply stores.
First thing in the morning before you brush your teeth, just spit on a little piece, and watch it change colour. Healthy saliva is 7.2 PH, full of alkalinity (calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium) to build wonderful teeth.
Likely though, like most adults, especially women, who have been on the pill, or people who are taking medication, they are likely acidic, below 7.2, more like 5.0-6.5.
Women also tend to get bladder and yeast infections which they take many courses of antibiotics for. This adds to their acidity.
Antibiotics also kill off good bacteria, allowing harmful yeast to grow, and this harmful yeast increases acidity.
Remember, the goal is to become alkaline. Children are often a healthy 7.2, with alkaline, oxygenated bodies. That's one of the reasons they have oodles of energy.
Adults become more acidic as they use up alkaline resources to neutralize toxins taken in.
Your PH will go down when you fall off the health wagon. But as it climbs to healthy numbers, it will give you more incentive to stay on the straight and narrow.
First, I bought a juicer. Every day, I would juice green veggies, with some purple, and other colours.
The green I usually get is kale, spinach, Swiss chard, and some Chinese vegetables. I also add a purple, like beets and purple cabbage. And then I rotate the other colours like red- tomatoes, orange- carrots ect.
Not too many carrots, or you'll turn orange After a couple of months juicing
too many carrots, I turned orange!
I juice for supper, around 4 or 5pm.
You would think that's not enough food. But I noticed that as my minerals went up, the less hungry I was. I used to be hungry an hour after a regular supper because it didn't have the minerals that I needed.
Now I drink 20 oz, about 3 cups of veggie juice. That's equal to possibly 10 servings of veggies. (One serving is one stick of celery.) Sometimes I put in 3 or more, so it's easily 10 servings!
I also juice extra, and put it in used pasta jars and freeze them. Every morning, I take one out, and as it thaws, I drink some.
Freezing does damage some of the nutrition in the juice, but I am more interested in the minerals. And they are not damaged by freezing.
I often get green juice twice a day. If you drink your juice before supper, you will probably eat much less.
The huge difference in drinking a lot of green juice will be your poo. I'll talk about poo a lot because it's key to getting healthy. Your poo will be green or purple based on the colour the juice was.
You should poo double or triple what you normally would.
This is my first step because this will clean out your colon, so you will absorb more nutrition. As your colon cleans up, then you can look into supplementing with minerals your food is lacking.
There are 60 minerals we need.
You know you're low of various minerals when you have these symptoms:
grey hair and wrinkles is copper
thinning hair is tin
muscle cramps, receding gums, and PMS is calcium
liver spots is selenium
low blood Sugar
and diabetes is chromium and vanadium
osteoporosis and menopause symptoms is boron
poor sense of smell and taste is zinc
...and there's many, many more.
Veterinarians have known about this for years, but the general public doesn't understand this.
Our small intestine and colon are positively charged, so these negatively charged minerals are attracted to them.
That's why plants are so important to our health.
They take minerals in the ground, which are teeny, tiny little rocks, and convert them into colloidal form, 7000x smaller than a red blood cell.
So we can divide food into two groups:
-those with negative charges that will neutralize free radicals in the body. The source is raw fruits, veggies, and soaked nuts and seeds.
By the way, we have 50% the same DNA as a banana.
We don't completely understand the process, but we can imagine our body breaking apart a banana's DNA, and easily turning it's parts into human DNA.
On the other hand, cooked food loses it's antioxidants or it's negative charge. So you're adding positively charged burden to your body.
-the other group is positive charged foods (anything cooked)
Also, the DNA disappears.
In a fire, when they try to identify DNA, they usually have to use the bones, because all burned flesh loses it's DNA and is not identifiable.
So eating cooked animal products is more difficult for the body to turn into human DNA.
My first steps: I concentrated on drinking green juice, getting minerals and using the washroom-lots!
