Cleansing the Body
-Thursday, February 10, 2011
Perhaps the greatest threat to our health during the festive period is the excessive amount of acid that we consume. As a general rule, food (and drinks) which have an acid PH value are harmful to the health, and alkaline PH foods are healthy. There are of course exceptions because most fruit is acidic, but also contain vital nutrients. However, most other acidic foods should be restricted especially during a detox period, and they include dairy, meat, alcohol, processed food, fried food, sugar (in it’s many forms) and carbonated drinks (especially diet drinks).
