Detailed Listing of Acid / Alkaline Forming Foods

Detailed Listing of Acid / Alkaline Forming Foods
The pH scale is from 0 - 14 Human blood pH should be slightly alkaline ( 7.35 - 7.45 ). Below or above this range means symptoms and disease. A pH of 7.0 is neutral. An acidic pH can occur from, an acid forming diet, emotional stress, toxic overload, and/or immune reactions or any process that deprives the cells of oxygen and other nutrients. An acidic balance will: decrease the body's ability to absorb minerals and other nutrients, decrease the energy production in the cells, decrease it's ability to repair damaged cells, decrease it's ability to detoxify heavy metals, make tumor cells thrive, and make it more susceptible to fatigue and illness. The reason acidosis is more common in our society is mostly due to the typical American diet, which is far too high in acid producing animal products like meat, eggs and dairy, and far too low in alkaline producing foods like fresh vegetables. To maintain health, the diet should consist of 60% alkaline forming foods and 40% acid forming foods.

7 Top Health Benefits of Maca Maca, a root that belongs to the radish family, is most commonly available in powder form. Grown in the mountains of Peru, it has been called “Peruvian ginseng.” Maca’s benefits have been long valued, and has recently been popularized as a supplement and food ingredient. There are no serious known side effects of maca, but like any other supplement it should not be taken in large amounts. When you first start using maca, it’s best to begin by taking smaller amounts and building up; even 1/2 teaspoon is a good place to start. Maca is good in smoothies, salads, drinks, cooked foods, and juices. Please be aware that other than the nutritional benefits provided by the vitamins and minerals, the other benefits are anecdotal, as maca has not been formally studied. A great resource that includes a lot of information on maca, as well as how to incorporate it into recipes, is Superfood Kitchen by Julie Morris. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.

Using LM Potencies | Bill Gray Homeopathy LM (also called “Q”) potencies are a delivery system invented by Samuel Hahnemann toward the end of his illustrious life. “LM” represents the Roman numeral for “50,000.” They are called LM potencies because the dilution factor is 1/50,000 — instead of the other customary method of 1/100 dilution (called “c” potencies). LM potencies were developed based on clinical experience that the body responds gently and effectively to repeated potencies. LMs are a liquid prepared by the pharmacy, then shaken and diluted at least daily by the patient. After that, single isolated doses are taken as boosters only when needed. LM potencies require a little more work — usually ten seconds or so for each dose. When everything is going well, doses can be stopped altogether. This cannot be said for the “c” potencies (given only once in the office and only very cautiously thereafter). The Protocol For the vast majority of cases, a simple protocol suffices. The Technique How you prepare each dose follows:

Heart Surgeon Makes Shocking Confession On The Real Cause Of Heart Disease I stumbled upon an article yesterday that I want to share with everyone. It was written by Dr. Dwight Lundell, a heart surgeon with 25 years of experience performing over 5,000 open-heart surgeries. What he revealed is sure to generate negative feedback to say the least from the mainstream medical community. But I’ve got to commend the man for speaking out on what he believes to be a major mistake. Think about it, what has the public been advised to do to offset the risk of heart disease? Everything has been focused on reducing fat in the diet, especially “bad” saturated fat, along with consuming more whole grains and “healthy” carbohydrates. Dietary fat has been tagged as the evil culprit behind the ills of high cholesterol and arteriosclerosis. Chances are if you’ve been identified to be at risk for or having heart disease, the recommendation has been to follow a low-fat diet, eat more whole grains, and take cholesterol lowering medications. There’s just one problem…it’s NOT working!

Sankaran's Miasms wellnessmama I’ve been meaning to write this post for a long time and finally had the time while the kids are napping and I am (ironically) sipping a Chia Seed Energy Drink (recipe below). If you don’t already use chia seeds, you are missing out! Not only are they gluten/grain free naturally, but one tablespoon of Chia Seeds has more calcium than a glass of milk, more Omega-3s than Salmon, and more antioxidants than blueberries. Perfect? Almost… they do get stuck in your teeth if you chew them plain (ask me how I know that!). They also give you tons of energy but also won’t keep you awake at night and are supposed to be great for weight loss. Supposedly, the Aztecs, Mayans, and Incans used chia as a staple of their diet and as an energy food. Additionally, “They are currently being used for their nutritional and medicinal properties, endurance for athletes, for suppressing the appetite, weight loss, leveling blood sugar, and for aiding intestinal regularity. Convinced? 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.

Birth and the carbon series The Carbon series is the second row of the periodic system of Elements. It consists of the elements Lithium, Beryllium, Boron, Carbon, Nitrogenium, Oxygenium, Fluor and Neon. These elements have as basic theme the development of the “I”, the ego or individual. These elements represent a process going from left to right in the periodic table. The birth process turns out to be a reflection of this whole process of development. One can also look at Hydrogen and Helium in this connection. Literature: Scholten J., Homeopathy and the Elements, Utrecht, 1996, ISBN 9074817033. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.

How Homeopathic Remedies Are Made Homeopathic medicines, which are called remedies by those practicing the stream of medicine, are made using several substances. The primary processing required by all such substances to organize them for the energizing procedures of dilution as succession differs depending on each substance. Either the original materials from which homeopathic remedies are prepared need to be collected or they may also be made in the manner which is as close as possible to the method it was done while organizing the material for the purpose of proving. It is important that extreme caution is exercised to the minutest detail of the procedure to ensure that the remedial homeopathic attributes are reproduced most precisely. In case you do not do this, it is necessary to perform another proving or test with a view to bring to light any variation in the consequences of preparing the remedy in a different way. Sources Homeopathic remedies are prepared using plants, minerals as well as animal sources. Tinctures
