Ready to Detox Your Body
Amongst all the benefits of detoxification such as removing toxins from the body and cleansing the liver, reducing inflammation, promoting healthy skin, boosting energy and mental alertness, is the most wanted weight loss.
We recommend a detox that very much looks to balance your blood ph level through food choices. Changes in your blood Ph Level and having a more alkaline metabolism can stimulate weight loss along with other health benefits.
PH stands for power of hydrogen, which is a measurement of the hydrogen ion concentration in the body. The total pH scale ranges from 1 to 14, with 7 considered to be neutral.
A pH of less than 7 is said to be acidic and solutions with a pH greater than 7 are basic or alkaline. Our ideal pH is slightly alkaline – 7.30 to 7.45. By including pH balance in your detox I have found that addressing an over acidic system is fundamental to bringing the body back to vitality.
Naturopaths believe certain conditions including; arthritis, cancer, osteoporosis, gout and eczema are acidic in nature.
The best way to prevent them is to reduce acid forming foods and increase alkaline forming foods. For instance stomach acid has a low (or acidic) pH of 2-3, whereas bile that helps break down fat has a higher (or more alkaline) pH of 8-9. Blood pH is between 7.35-7.45 or slightly alkaline.
The tiniest upward shift in pH will have a positive impact on your wellbeing.
The other benefits of alkalising your diet include more energy, loss of body fat, greater concentration and clarity and clear glowing skin.
If weight loss is your goal, you don’t have to look far for a plan guaranteed to work. The most successful weight-loss plan incorporates commitment, healthy eating habits and exercise.
It can be helpful in achieving your goals to understand how factors such blood pH affect the weight-loss equation.
Meaningful Detox and Weight Loss
In order to lose 1 pound a week, you must reduce your calorie intake by 3,500 calories, burn the equivalent of 3,500 calories through exercise or use a combination of both methods.
Keeping weight off requires striking a balance between the calories you consume and the calories you burn.
Blood pH, or the acid-base balance in your blood, plays a role in weight loss and determines how you burn fat. If the foods you eat upset this balance, weight loss becomes difficult or impossible.
