Did you know that studies have shown that baking soda alkalizes the body and can help you live longer and healthier? This is because sodium bicarbonate lowers your pH level and, therefore, prevents diseases. But this doesn’t mean you have to use the stuff in the little yellow boxes. You actually could by stirring it into liquids like water or coffee, but how else do you get sodium bicarbonate? You guessed it . . . lots of fruits and vegetables (the same way you get a lot of other healthy nutrients).
Particularly high in sodium bicarbonate are broccoli, spinach, carrots, apples (“an apple a day”), bananas, raisins, lemons, and even coffee. These are full of potassium as well.
And guess what happens when you alkalize your body? Pain tends to dissipate. Muscles get more flexible and you have more energy. Your blood is cleaner and you feel clean inside.
Do you think you are getting your share of these life giving foods daily? Give them a try! If you need a little coaching to help get you on the right track, come see Celia Naples at our Pain Recovery Clinic and get started!
