5 Colon Hydrotherapy
This generally meets a bit of resistance, but there is no need for this. Gravity centered colon hydrotherapy (also known as ‘colon lavage’) is one of the best practices one can take when healing an ailment. By cleansing the colon tract of substances lodged inside for many years at 98.6 degrees, you free the body of many incredibly acidic substances that keep it from cleansing daily at an optimal level. Many people have seen things exit their colon that they haven’t eaten for years, indicating that things do get stuck and stagnate the tract, causing many other issues. If you have a problem regarding your ‘personal space,’ you may also choose to start with an enema kit – just make sure you use plain filtered water, not saline solutions or coffee. Be gentle with your body, not aggressive.
4 Infrared Sauna
Toxins are particularly acidic, and we all harbor them in our bodies. By ridding our body of these acidic substances, naturally we will become more alkaline. Infrared Sauna is a gentle way to bring the body’s temperature up to increase sweating, and uses the same energy as the sun to do so, unlike dry or steam room saunas. Ladies may also notice a reduction in cellulite as a bonus. You can generally find infrared saunas at detox centers or wellness spas, so take a look around, or buy one yourself (they run about $2,000).
3 Do yoga
Yoga is an excellent addition to an alkaline diet to increase flexibility and relieve pain from arthritis. Make sure your instructor knows you are arthritic so as to give you modifications for more demanding poses. You can also buy yoga DVDs specific to arthritis and find information and poses online
2 Eat Vegetable Crudités Instead of Refined Snacks
Chopping up vegetables to dip in a healthy sauce. The more vegetables the better, so just make sure the dip or sauce is one you enjoy, but not high in saturated fats or refined sugar. Experiment – carrots, baby carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, celery, bell peppers, lettuce leaves and mushrooms are all excellent for dipping. Vegetables are alkalizing and snacking on them prevents hunger for acidic refined foods.
1 Drink Green Juice
Green juice is definitely the secret to many things – a healthy pregnancy, health breastmilk, morning energy, organ cleansing, constipation relief, glowing skin, and gentle nutrification. It is also very alkaline and easy to digest, meaning that within 15 minutes the juice has already gone through the stomach, utilized immediately for alkalizing and nutrifying the body. Have a green juice (juice a head of romaine, half a cucumber, a few stalks of celery, 1 whole lemon, a small knob of ginger and an apple for sweetness if you like, stevia if lowering sugar intake) first thing in the morning when you feel hungry. Wait 15 minutes before eating or consuming anything else.
