Baking soda for health

Mix 1 teaspoon of baking soda with 8 ounces of water. Drink this mixture once per week if you're healthy and increase your intake if you're fighting an illness. Cancer patients may want to take 1 teaspoon twice a day for a week or until they see an improvement in their outcome. Baking soda makes the body more alkaline which inhibits the multiplication of bacteria and other microbes like cancer cells. 

Be sure to get aluminum free baking soda and to use filtered chlorine free water. Drinking chlorinated water defeats the purpose of the regime due to is acidic and toxic make up. It is extremely important to avoid toxins as you attempt to balance your PH.

The sugar found in fruit is much different than processed sugar. Fruit sugars are not the enemy.
Fruit sugars do not cause spikes in blood sugar because they are released slowly into the bloodstream. Eating fruit for breakfast is best because it will give you energy and as you are active during the day you will burn the sugars off. Our bodies need fruit in order to improve our overall health. 
Pulverizing helps you to maintain and keep the fiber. 

Fiber is an essential part of your diet. Without fiber you will become unhealthy and sick. 
Juicing removes the fiber, pulverizing does not. 

  • There are two types of fiber: soluble fiber, which dissolves in water, and insoluble fiber, which does not dissolve in water. Both types are important in maintaining optimal health. They occur naturally in foods such as beans, seeds, nuts, vegetables, fruits, and whole grains.

3 foods that lower cholesterol

3 foods that lower cholesterol

If your diet gave you high cholesterol, it can lower it, too

foods that lower cholesterolIt's easy to eat your way to an alarmingly high cholesterol level. The reverse is true, too — changing what you eat can lower your cholesterol and improve the armada of fats floating through your bloodstream.

1. Oats. An easy first step to improving your cholesterol is having a bowl of oatmeal or cold oat-based cereal like Cheerios for breakfast. It gives you 1 to 2 grams of soluble fiber. Add a banana or some strawberries for another half-gram. Current nutrition guidelines recommend getting 20 to 35 grams of fiber a day, with at least 5 to 10 grams coming from soluble fiber. (The average American gets about half that amount.)

2. Barley and other whole grains. Like oats and oat bran, barley and other whole grains can help lower the risk of heart disease, mainly via the soluble fiber they deliver.

3. Beans. Beans are especially rich in soluble fiber. They also take awhile for the body to digest, meaning you feel full for longer after a meal. That's one reason beans are a useful food for folks trying to lose weight. With so many choices — from navy and kidney beans to lentils, garbanzos, black-eyed peas, and beyond — and so many ways to prepare them, beans are a very versatile food.
