If you were to do one thing for your health this Ramadan, what should it be?
Let me give you a suggestion.
This Ramadan, why not try to make your body more alkaline?
If you remember acid an alkaline from your old science class, you might also remember that your blood functions at a pH level of 7.4, which makes it slightly alkaline. Therefore, you are at your healthiest when your blood (and therefore your body) is slightly alkaline.
The problem is that so many things make us acidic! Animal products, fried greasy foods, and even sugar all make our blood more acidic. Toxins (like smoking, pollution, and insect sprays) also make you acidic. And so do negative emotions such as hate, resentment, and anger.
What happens when your blood becomes more acidic? Viruses, bacteria, and even cancer cells thrive in acidic blood. You become much more prone to illness, and much more likely to get angry or irritated; and it speeds up the ageing process.
The bigger problem is that it’s very difficult to detox when your blood is acidic. This defeats the whole purpose of fasting, since fasting’s biggest benefits is the removal of toxins from the body.
So the plan for you today is to make your blood more alkaline. How? Drink lots of fresh vegetable juices, especially green ones. These instantly alkalise your blood and give you better immunity, faster healing, and improved mood!
Break your fast today with a green juice made of: cucumber, apple, and lots of green leaves (parsley, coriander, rocket, etc.); and add to that a tablespoon of wheatgrass powder for extra umph.
Try it and see the difference.
