PLEASE NOTE: Acid Alkaline Breakthrough course has ended and will be available to you as a downloadable product from 28th September 2012. Check out the insane 28 DAYS OF ALKALISING GIVE-AWAYS kicking off 10th September>>
As you know we are gearing up to start our 28 Days towards Acid-Alkaline Breakthrough shortly, many of you have already registered to be on the program and many of you are so keen to get going already (“Right Now!!”), that I wanted to share a few small and MAJOR tips on how you can start de-acidifying and creating a more alkaline environment within your body right away.
If this is still sounding like alien language to you, I suggest you start by reading the introduction to what PH Balance is all about and what the consequences of being too acidic are, here>>
1. Go Green
The number one, biggest, most major, huge, massive, undeniably important thing to do is start consuming loads of greens. By greens, I of course mean the usual spinach, kale, rocket, wheatgrass, watercress, arugula, and lettuce varieties. But don’t forget the herbs- parsley, dill, coriander, milk thistle, nettle, and fennel. And especially superfoods, like barley grass, blue-green algae, spirulina, and chlorella. The power of greens is very well researched and proven to effectively detoxify the body, immunise your system, provide you with energy (saved on breaking down the food and digesting it), heal, build blood and increase oxygen carrying ability as well and iron content, in other words- Alkalise.
2. Follow the 20/40 rule
That is- no liquids for at least 20 minutes before meals and no liquids for at least 40 minutes after meals. Do not ever mix food with even water, as your body has all the relevant acids (in saliva, stomach and gut) to break down all the food you have. By flushing it down with a drink (yes, even water), you are diluting the delicate digestive juices and making them ineffective. This may explain bloating, as the food sits there soaking in with the drink, not stirring or budging and confusing the body on what to even do with it.
3. Eat highly alkalising foods
Greens(!!), fruits, vegetables and some nuts are the answer to the most alkalising foods. But it is also useful to know what foods are at the top of the scale and equally important- what foods are at the bottom of the scale. In the Acid-Alkaline Breakthrough program, I will send you a fully comprehensive chart, that you can print and pin up in your kitchen to use as a truly useful guide, but for now know that cucumber, avocado and radish are amongst the most alkalising foods, while pork, tuna and alcohol are amongst the most acid foods.
4. Remember to breathe
Acidic environment is all about the lack of oxygen (i.e. disease) and alkaline environment is all about oxidisation (i.e. health). According to Master Herbalist Kai Seller’ intensive research into human physiology, there is absolutely no mechanism that can turn the blood as acidic or alkaline as the way you breathe. Shallow breaths do not let in much oxygen and therefore make you very acid and sick quickly, while the act of taking in long deep breaths and slowly breathing out carbon dioxide, alkalises the blood. I’ve been doing this on a regular basis all the while checking my PH levels and I can tell you, I have not seen anything else yet that has as much effect to my results as breathing this way.
The Acid-Alkaline Breakthrough program launches 28th September 2012….
I will take you through all the necessary steps to determine your acidity levels and start [by gently] de-acidifying your system with certain simple pointers, going onto incorporating more and more alkalising recipes into your lifestyle, to step-by-step way you can cleanse your system (you’ll determine the length of your cleanse with a quiz I’ll have for you).

Get going right away with a special recipe:
For the essentials
For the rolls
1 large cucumber
1 cup almonds, soaked overnight
1 avocado, meat only
juice of 1 lemon
bunch of parsley
pinch Himalayan salt
Slice the cucumber into thin long strips with a mandolin, by laying it on its side
Transfer all the ingredients, apart from cucumber, into a food processor and process until combined to a desired consistency [Note for me this was slightly chunky almonds and smooth avocado; you may prefer the entire mixture to be more of a paste, so process for longer]Lay cucumber strips down, one at a time, spoon the guacamole mixture onto the strip about an inch from an edge, making sure it doesn’t fall out of the sides, lift off the short edge, bending it over the guacamole mixture and start rolling
Use a toothpick as a pin to hold each roll together
Serve chilled or right away- either way it’s so yummy!
