1. Keep the Fluids Flowing
Research shows that people who are dehydrated often suffer from health issues. Make sure you are taking the time to fill up your water bottle and staying properly hydrated. It seems simple and maybe redundant but an important reminder nonetheless! A good reminder is to drink half your body weight in ounces each day.
2. Eat more More Greens!
This means eating more alkaline greens – fresh vegetables, salads and fruits. Try to focus on eating more alkaline foods and less acidic foods which includes dairy, sugar, caffeine, white bread and pizza.
3. Be Flexible
Make small changes and don’t try to incorporate everything all at once. Try to reach your goals slowly and don’t let yourself get down if you end up eating processed or acidic foods.
4. Try Breathing Differently
Ok, this admittedly sounds crazy but hear us out. Simple breathing exercises once or twice a day will give your body a huge hand in removing excess acids from your bloodstream. Here is a breathing exercise to try. Sit comfortably, close your eyes and breathe in for a count of four, hold for a count of 8, breathe in for a count of four. Repeat that 10 times.
