pH is about pHeeling better

Health information is out there but we must crave it.

Anyone can Google "major league baseball" or "american idol" or "senate passes wall street reform." I realize that "alkaline food" is likely not the hottest topic on Twitter. But, I would argue, that it should be. Can we make a pH food revolution?

It is so easy to eat acidic: cheese, beans, meat, coffee, soda, beer, fried food, and most juices.

It is not as easy to eat alkaline: raisins, mixed greens, veggies, pineapple, nuts.

Why should we care about our pH? Too much acid can cause: constant fatigue, lower body temperature, tendency to get infections, loss of enthusiasm, depression, nervousness, pale face, headaches, teary eyes, sensitive gums, leg cramps, dry skin, burning scalp, and hair loss.

Moreover, there are many people who believe that acidic environments permit cancer to grow.

You can check your pH through saliva or urine. Or both. As many times as you want. Invite your friends over and have a pH party. Toast yourself with some black cherry juice, alfalfa green drinks, and raisins. Yum!
