Achieve and Alkaline Body and be Healthyđź’¦

 

To achieve an alkaline body which I may add is essential to good health you must have and alkaline lifestyle.

Green vegetables: kale, chard, beet greens, dandelion, spinach, wheat grass, alfalfa grass.

Non starchy vegetables – mushrooms, tomatoes, avocado, radishes, cucumber,  broccoli, oregano, garlic, ginger, green beans, endive, cabbage, celery, zucchini and asparagus.

Raw Foods – life-giving foods – organic fruit and vegetables

Superfoods – maca root, spirulina, sea veggies, bone broth and green powder mixes that contain chlorophyll.

Healthy fats – coconut oil, MCT oil or virgin olive oil (fats found in wild-caught fish, grass-fed beef, cage-free eggs, nuts, seeds and organic grass-fed butter

Starchy plants – sweet potato, turnips and beets.

Plant proteins – almonds, navy beans, lima beans and most other beans

Most fruits –  Strangely enough, acidic fruits such as grapefruit and tomatoes don’t create acidity in the body. They do just the opposite and contribute to an alkaline environment. Citrus fruits, dates and raisins are all very alkalizing and may help prevent acidosis.

Apple cider Vinegar –  Strangely enough, acidic fruits such as grapefruit and tomatoes don’t create acidity in the body. They do just the opposite and contribute to an alkaline environment. Citrus fruits, dates and raisins are all very alkalizing and may help prevent acidosis.

Drink Alkaline water; – Now you know this is my favorite subject and write about it all the time. Now Dr Axe also is writing about the subject of alkaline water that is so necessary to optimal health like the food we eat :-

“According to the Water Research Center’s website, “The normal range for pH in surface water systems is 6.5 to 8.5 and for groundwater systems is 6 to 8.5.”  This means that there is a lot of variation when it comes to pH levels between different sources of water. When water has a pH level less than 6.5, it is considered “acidic, soft, and corrosive,” which means it may potentially leach metal ions such as iron, manganese, copper, lead, and zinc from aquifers, plumbing fixtures, and piping, plus contain certain toxic metals and have a sour taste. The best way to treat the problem of acidic (low pH) water is to use a neutralizer that raises the pH.

Evidence suggests that the ideal pH level of alkaline ionized water for long-term human consumption is between 8.5 and 9.5.  Alkaline water is just what it sounds like: water that is highly acidic, with a pH of between 9.5 to 11. Adding pH drops, lemon or lime, or baking soda to your water also boosts alkalinity. Distilled water is neutral, with a pH of 7.

Water filtered using a reverse osmosis filter is slightly acidic, with a pH level slightly lower than 7. Distilled water and filtered water may not be too alkaline, but as far as pH balance is concerned they are still a better option than tap water or purified bottled water that are more acidic.”

2. Green tea compound may improve power of Cancer drugs. It has been revealed that a molecule that is a key ingredient in green tea can be used as a carrier for anti-cancer proteins. While this does not mean drinking green tea will cure cancer, scientists have discovered the molecule, which has the catch name of epigallocatechin -3-0gallate – May improve the effectiveness of anti cancer drugs used to treat breast and stomach cancers.

Would You Take This Test

blood_sample

Good Question. Me? No, I have no intention of finding out when I am likely to kick the bucket. I just want to enjoy each day being ignorant of that fact. Not that I am afraid of dying but just don’t want to know when.

This is an article that was on the Fox news which they got from LA Times  Science. I thought was rather interesting reading.

A blood test to predict imminent death?

According to a report in the Los Angeles Times, such an option may one day be available to the public.  In a new study published in PLOS Medicine, researchers revealed that certain levels of four biomarkers circulating in the blood stream may strongly indicate when death is on the horizon.

To identify these “deathly” chemicals, the researchers analyzed blood samples from more than 17,000 people living in Estonia and Finland, screening them for 106 different types of proteins.  After a median follow-up period of five years, the researchers identified which study participants had died and compared their blood samples to those of the living.

They found that four biomarkers – alpha-1-acid glycoprotein, albumin, very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) particle size and citrate – were all unusually high in the deceased patients, five years prior to their deaths.  Additionally, the researchers created an index of the four chemicals, and individuals whose biomarker index was in the top 20 percent were 19 times more likely to die within the five years after the blood samples were taken.

The four proteins were associated with various types of mortality – including death from cardiovascular disease, cancer and other nonvascular diseases – but they were even predictive of death in people considered healthy, as well.

According to the researchers, these four biomarkers may be indicators of deadly underlying conditions that may go unnoticed by many patients.
