Follow my 80%/60% guideline for alkalizing: Achieving a favorable, slightly alkaline balance does not mean acid-forming foods are completely off limits. I suggest you use the following guidelines: If you want to reverse your current acid-forming diet or have an especially challenging health condition, increase your intake of alkaline-forming foods to 80% of your diet. If you are in good health and want to maintain your alkaline diet, aim for 60% of your nutrition from alkalizing foods.
When it comes to improving bone health, very little you do matters more than improving your acid-alkaline balance with an alkaline eating plan. Even if you exercise and limit toxins, if your acid-alkaline balance is off-kilter, you’ll still have unnecessary bone loss in the long run. An alkaline diet is an essential part of natural bone health.
1) TREAT YOURSELF. All work and no play is a surefire way to throw off a balanced life. Wherever you’re logging your hours—at home, the office, the gym, or anywhere else—be sure to treat yourself when the work is done! Making time for yourself ensures that you feel cared for, so you can keep sharing your time, energy, and talents with others. Pursue a new hobby just for fun, spend a night binge-watching a show, or take an extra-long, steamy shower! It can be anything, big or small, that helps you refocus and recharge.
