Find it difficult to concentrate? Suffer from recurrent viral infections, allergies and respiratory problems? Fatigue quickly and recover slowly? Do you feel pessimistic? Notice a loss of enthusiasm, joy and motivation? Experience chronic muscle stiffness, soreness or pain? Have recurring headaches? Notice areas of inflamed and itchy skin? Have you been told you have brittle, or thinning bones? Noticed a change in your perspiration and body odours (towards one that is more rancid)?
We live in a society that is constantly on the go and will unquestioningly pop that prescription “cure-all” magic pill. Imagine for a moment however, if you could roll back the clock prior to your diagnosis of hypertension, diabetes, chronic kidney disease, heart disease, recurrent headaches, premenstrual dysphoria – and you had someone tell you your prescription could be wholesome food and a healthy lifestyle! What would you do with that information?
I present to you the original happy meal –
The primary force creating, or further contributing to many of the above-listed common illnesses is directly linked to your…drum roll please…you guessed it, diet! As a Naturopathic Doctor, the vast majority of patients who walk in through our doors are persons with less-than-optimal health and are those who also have an acidic body terrain.
Fortunately, there is much you can do to turn an unhealthy acidic environment into a health-promoting alkaline environment. In fact, the most important step you can take in creating an ideal acid-alkaline balance in your body is to take control of your diet by making smart food choices.
Hind sight is always 20/20. What happens if you had the key to unlocking health and vitality, without the negative side-effects of pharmaceuticals, which consequently also require additional pharmaceuticals to offset your original prescription’s side effects? Would you unlock the door to your potential health and well-being? Incorporation of an alkaline diet is not just a buzz word used by Naturopathic Doctors. Ask your Naturopathic Doctor how you can achieve more of an alkaline body balance!
