Before we explain how to repair broken immunity, we must know about hidden inflammation and acidosis.
Inflammation cause 99% of diseases. Inflammation is your body's first line of defense against infections as long as it ends once its work is accomplished. And that's the catch: Chronic, whole - body inflammation is an all - too-common condition that damages cells and tissue. this type of inflammation is invisible. You aren't aware of the damage until you're diagnosed with heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer's, diabetes, arthritis, hearth, depression, fatigue, digestive problems, kidney stones, gout and other.
Acidosis prepares environment for inflammation. Acidosis is caused by an acid - alkaline imbalance in your body's pH levels. Excess acid are caused by stress, environmental toxins, insufficient oxygen, or a poor diet. It is a biochemical condition in the body that paralyzes every cell, preventing the absorption of oxygen and essential nutrients. Inflammation and every illness exists in an acidic state. You may measure your pH levels with litmus paper using saliva or urine . Your pH should be slightly alkaline, in the range of 7.25 to 7.45. Inflammation is commonly recognized by doctors, but acidosis is completely ignored.
Eat an anti - inflammatory and alkaline diet.
Cut out the processed foods, most important: cut the sugar. Increase your intake of fruits and vegetables. Most of fruits and vegetables, even citrus are alkalizing. Tomatoes, cranberries, and blueberries are non - alkalizing. Powdered greens supplements are great for alkalizing.
Useful compounds derived from (green food) fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts, legumes, teas, and beans are Lycopene, beta carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin are phytonutrients. They are outstanding antioxidants.
Phytonutrients have subgroups: like polyphenols, flavonoids, carotenoids, and anthocyanins. Each subgroup corresponds to the color of the foods that contain it. Lycopene is abundant in red foods like tomatoes, watermelon, and red peppers. Orange foods like carrots and sweet potatoes have beta carotene.
Geting micronutrients is the best from whole foods, cruciferous vegetables, and fruits, or a vegetable juice.
