A Major Gauge

Like the speedometer, hot/cold, gas level, battery level, and other gauges in your car, the body has it’s own set of “gauges”.

Blood pressure, pulse, temperature, cholesterol. But there’s one more, one that is not talked about much.

Your pH.

You may have heard about it. You may know something about it.

Well, it goes from 0 to 14, with 7 in the middle.

Below 7 is acidic, above is alkaline.

Now, your blood must be between 7.35 and 7.45. Slightly alkaline.

Most quick foods are acidic, and can make it harder for your body to be healthy.

 

What’s alkaline? Raw and cooked fruits and veggies, deep breathing, and more.

What’s acidic? Meats, nuts, processed/canned foods.

 

Try getting some more alkaline food in your body. See how you feel, I bet you’ll feel better.
