Most people drag their way through each day, tired, stressed, and without vitality. We researched a simple way to improve mental and physical well-being to help you stay energized daily.
With today’s fast-paced society being as it is, it is a miracle that there is a chance to eat, sleep or even finish all the tasks and goals that make up the list consisting of normal daily life. Pundits agree that time has sped up and the pace of the world has become faster; and with faster cars, faster jobs, faster lives and entertainment, it has become a slow uphill struggle to maintain good health, vivaciousness and body vigor.
Increasing Body Energy on a Daily Basis with a balanced PH
Foodfacts.com notes that, some experts agree that energizing the body is simply a matter of obtaining enough exercise, eating right or managing stress levels; what makes the most difference is the breakdown of their meaning. According to Sam Graci, a Nutritional Researcher and author of The Bone Building Solution, in an article for Vitality Magazine published in Sept 2008 for Health Product News, the level of acidic and alkalinity in foods are indicative of low or high body energy levels.
Alkalinity versus Acidity
Graci reiterates that the secret to vitality can be achieved purely by achieving an alkaline pH level in the body; citing examples of alkaline rich foods as fruits and vegetables and acidic foods as foods which are rich in dairy and protein. He states,’…after food is consumed, digested and absorbed, it leaves an ash residue in our body. Foods that produce an alkaline ash are called alkaline forming foods whereas those that produce acid ash are called acid-forming foods.’
He further states that, ‘…your body’s pH (potential of hydrogen) represents the balance of positively charged (acid-forming) ions to negatively charged (alkalinizing) ions. For optimum health, studies show the ideal blood chemistry is slightly alkaline. When the body is overly acidic, it becomes an opportune environment for disease and chronic illness…’
Graci points out that despite the necessity of both types of food, the challenge comes in when the body ingests more acidic food than alkaline food and vice versa, stating that the ideal diet occurs when the body ingests a ratio of 75% alkalizing foods to 25% acidic foods. An acidic diet could lead to a weak immune system, food not being properly absorbed and loss of mental and physical stamina.
A Healthier Lifestyle
Despite all the methods available for increasing mental and physical health, well-being and vitality, it is important that every individual chooses which methods will best suit their personalities and their lifestyles. It is not easy to eat and live well in this time of fast food, convenient transportation and cable television but if healthier choices such as low acidic food allow for activity to help achieve longevity, and greater freedom from stress on a daily basis, then it is well worth trying.
