Keep your body fluids alkaline
Our ancestors lived on a diet that represented 80% alkaline foods and 20% acidic. These days we are, on average, consuming the opposite ie an 80% acidic and 20% alkaline.
The consequence is that our organic fluids ie the fluid in and around our cells and our lymph is acidic and this is one of the major causes of inflammation and disease.
An environment that is too acidic is a breeding ground for disease.
Heavy metals and viruses for example are more likely to flourish in an acidic environment. Acidosis is attributable directly to diseases like arthritis and osteoporosis but a major contributor to many others.
When this happens your cells do not communicate so well. Cancer represents a communication break-down so this is why looking after your internal acidity and toxins levels is so important.
Schizophrenia and auto immune diseases also relate to a communication breakdown, as do conditions where a person is in a chronic state of inflammation.
Cancer and chronic disease in general thrive in an acidic environment but struggle in an alkaline environment.
