Keeping our bodies alkaline is the best way to combat sickness, inflammation, and creating the easiest way for our energy levels and bodies to THRIVE. I find the more alkaline I am the lower my pain levels and endometriosis flairs ups are. What are alkaline foods?
Alkaline foods are foods that raise the the amount of oxygen that your blood takes in. The most alkalizing foods are RAW green leafy vegetables, non-sweet fruits and (wheat) grasses. The opposite of alkaline foods are acid foods. How much oxygen your blood can absorb is measured on a pH scale that ranges from 0 to 14. A pH of 0 is most acidic while a pH of 14 is most alkaline. Our blood is in balance when we're slightly alkaline: with a pH of 7.365. How do you know your body pH? Buy some pH test strips (also called litmus paper) at a health store and pee on it.
