An Explanation Of pHood

Hello beloved readers!  Pardon my absence…the springing of spring has had me busy, as I’m sure it has you as well.  Spring food lists coming soon!  It has come to my attention since the beginning of this blog that many people are unaware of the reason for my title: [pH]ood?  Most of you science-minded get it, of course…that I am referring to the body’s internal pH balance as an indication of health, not that I’m cleverly inserting a shout-out to popular music (albeit unfitting).

It is common knowledge that a solution’s acidity or alkalinity is expressed by pH (potential Hydrogen).  Internal fluids operate properly at a very precise pH; healthy digestive abilities rely entirely on balanced pH levels.  Inadequate nutrition accounts largely for imbalance, and weakness in this area is associated with food allergies, chronic fatigue, weight gain, and many more severities. 

A healthy body functions in an alkaline state.  Unfortunately, most Americans, due to a heavy reliance on fast food, processed food, prescription medication, and a sedentary lifestyle, have sent their bodies into horrifically high acidic states by young adulthood.  The most influential effect of acidosis in the body is depression of the central nervous system, which in turn serves as the breeding ground for an astronomical percentage of diseases, illnesses, and conditions.  Roughly 80% of our immune system resides within our digestive tract.

If you have heartburn, acid reflux, irregularity, or stomach ulcers, chances are your system is acidic.  These are some of the most basic and common indications.  The good news is that converting internal systems from an acid to an alkaline state is relatively attainable.  It usually requires making simple and effective changes to dietary and lifestyle habits, and the process is almost instantly gratifying.  A helpful hint: start small by eating only foods that don’t naturally have a shelf life (meaning it will go bad in 1-2 weeks).  Think more green, more fresh, more whole, more primitive in your food selection…you’ll be thanking yourself for it!  Get balanced, life will be more pHun :)


P.S.  I am now accepting clients!  Website under construction/info coming soon; if you are interested in making permanent changes to improve the quality of your own health, I can definitely help you achieve your health goals.  Shoot me an email:
