Dr. Lindsey Duncan: Great Video on Alkaline Diets
A guest on Dr. Oz and other well known media sites, Dr. Duncan is a fantastic source of nutritional education. Watch the video at the beginning of the article. Amazing stuff. (And where it says “Alkaline Water”, you can just substitute Evamor)
One of the most popular diets in Hollywood right now is the Alkaline Diet. Hollywood is finally getting a diet right! Ever since I opened my first nutrition clinic 28 years ago, I have used the Alkaline Diet as a fundamental element in restoring patients’ health and wellness.
Feeling out of balance is not just in your mind. It is actually deeply rooted in our body chemistry or pH balance, the balance of alkaline and acid chemicals. By eating the right balance of alkaline and acid forming foods, you can significantly improve your overall health and wellbeing, including improving your metabolism, energy levels, digestion, appearance and mental clarity.
To look and feel your best, it is critical that your body is contains more alkaline than acid. Our bodies naturally keep large alkaline reserves to balance a diet containing acid-producing foods. When these reserves are depleted beyond a 3:1 ratio, it creates an environment that allows yeast, viruses and parasites to thrive, which can contribute to conditions such as chronic fatigue, allergies, arthritis and more. If the body becomes too acidic, it will start using its reserves of minerals like sodium, magnesium, potassium and calcium, which can create serious mineral deficiencies. Striking a balance is key.
