We believe in mother nature: our bodies are running great with lots of spring water and of course lots of movement/exercise.

And the main emphasis should be on greens, organic salads, veggies, juices and smoothies. Our body needs the organic, bio available minerals to chemically buffer toxins/acids. That is the real “alkaline” movement. Because of a very acidic life style with poor diet, little exercise and lots of stress people are mineral depleted.

We do not recommend chemically, synthetically generated mineral/vitamins because the body can absorb only little of those. E.g. women who take calcium supplements have a 30% increased risk of heart attack.

Sea water is alkaline and rich in minerals but if you drink only sea water you die in a few days because of kidney failure. Last week a woman contacted me because of her kidney stones. She had been taking lots of a very expensive “alkaline mineral powder” for 1,5 years. Not good.

Again, try to only ingest foods and drinks you fully understand without a chemistry degree 🙂

Here is more info on organic vs inorganic minerals:

Organic and inorganic Minerals – what’s the difference?

by Peita Handel, BSc, Ad. Dip. (Herbal Medicine)

We often think of ‘organic’ in terms of chemical and hormone-free produce. But when we talk about minerals, the term organic relates to the type of molecule it’s bound to.

These ‘extra’ molecules are needed because minerals are not simply absorbed on their own, they need another molecule to help them get into and around the body. The type of molecule bound to your mineral affects how it is absorbed and utilised by your body.

Mineral supplements, why bother in the first place?
Because we often just don’t get enough. For example, many Australian adults consume less than the average recommended dietary intakes (RDIs) for both zinc and magnesium. You are at particular risk of not meeting your mineral needs if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, female over 65, vegetarian, vegan or an athlete.

Key minerals that your body needs:
• Magnesium: nerve and muscle function, bone health, carbohydrate metabolism, energy production, blood glucose regulation, cardiovascular health

• Calcium: bone mineralisation, density and strength, dental health, premenstrual syndrome, nerve and muscle function

• Zinc: healthy immune function, reproductive health, healthy hair, skin and nails, wound healing, digestive function, vision, hearing, sense of taste and smell

• Iron: tissue oxygenation, energy production, immune function, connective tissue health, cardiovascular health

When you consider magnesium is needed for over 500 enzyme reactions in your body, you can see why getting enough of this mineral is so important. Where it gets tricky is knowing what to look for when faced with shelves displaying a range of different compounds for similar sounding products. There might well be a dozen different types of magnesium supplement, but what is the difference?

The main differentiating factor is whether a compound is organic or inorganic. Understanding this is key when choosing a mineral supplement that delivers, because not all are created equal.

So what is an organic mineral?
An organic mineral is a compound containing organic food-based acids, such as amino acids and citric acid. For example, calcium bound to the amino acid glycinate forms the organic compound calcium glycinate.

Mineral supplements often contain inorganic (rock-based) minerals as these are cheaper to produce. Calcium bound to phosphate makes calcium phosphate, which has different properties to its organic counterpart.

Inorganic minerals are difficult to absorb
Put basically, molecules are more stable when holding hands with a buddy. A free unbound mineral will wander looking for something with the opposite charge to grab onto to.

Inorganic compounds are broken down by your body very quickly and dissociate more readily, and this leaves the unbound mineral in a more reactive and less stable state.

It can then interact in your digestive system in the following ways:

• Bind to other compounds – unbound minerals bind with other molecules such as phytates found in nuts, grains and some vegetables. They form a new compound and this traps the mineral from absorption and utilisation by your body.

• Irritate the gut – unbound minerals can also interact and irritate with the lining of your digestive system and this sometimes causes a laxative effect or diarrhoea.

Organic minerals are generally absorbed better
Organic minerals break down more slowly, and this increases their stability. A mineral that remains bound for longer is less reactive and goes where it is meant to, offering two main benefits:

• Higher bioavailability – organic mineral compounds can travel along the gut without getting trapped by other compounds.

• Decreased gut irritation – a bound mineral is less reactive and so less likely to irritate the gut lining like freed minerals can.

The Immune System – Which Guards Our Health

Posted on : 25-10-2017 | By : Stephan, The Alkaline Diet Guy | In : Alkaline Diet Health Tips, Uncategorized

by Dr.h.c. P. Jentschura

 

The term ‘immune system’ refers to the body’s defence system used to protect itself from disease (Latin for “immune” is Immunis = free, unaffected). Most people do not ‘feel’ their immune system, and regard its existence as self evident. For most of our lives, our immune system – whose function is to fight off viruses, bacteria, fungi and other intruders – works smoothly and successfully.

Only when we get sick with an infection or inflammation does it become clear how important the immune system is to our physical health and how important it is to support and maintain this system.

Those who suffer from a weak immune system will benefit from looking at their behavior, diet, stress levels, and even physical activities for the cause. How can the immune system be strengthened and balanced? Taking care of your immune health is a very important cornerstone of maintaining your physical health for as long as possible.

Our physical defence is a very subtle system. It includes cells and proteins that have the function of maintaining the body with its organs and structures. The immune system has various strategies for repelling outside intruders. On the one hand it has mechanical barriers, (the skin or mucous membranes). On the other hand, there are cells (i.e. granulocytes or lymphocytes) which work to render viruses and bacteria harmless. In addition, the body has proteins that act as messengers or as a defence against pathogens.

This sensitive system can be disrupted in its operation by a variety of external influences. These include dietary toxins that enter the body which may include processed foods, sweets, soft drinks, alcohol, and nicotine. Altogether, these items can weaken the organism and result in acidification. This also affects the immune system.

Immune boosting strategies: How can the immune system be boosted? Here are some basic guidelines to consider:

– Sufficient sleep (6 to 8 hours per day);

– Regular exercise (3 to 4 times per week of aerobic exercise, outdoors in nature);

– Stress reduction with yoga, relaxation training, alkaline baths, massages, dry and wet brushing;

– Listen to your heart and soul;

– Good hydration (with 2 to 3 litres per day of water or herbal tea)

– Avoid nicotine, alcohol;

– Alternate hot and cold showers to improve blood circulation on a regular basis;

– Take sauna or steam baths;

– Avoid drugs (especially those that destroy white blood cells such as painkillers, anti-depressants, antibiotics, beta blockers, etc.)

– Avoid fatty or highly processed foods;

– Enjoy an alkalinizing diet, rich in vitamin A, C, and iron. Eat foods that promote the production of white blood cells, including broccoli, kale, carrots, garlic, spinach, wheat germ oil, and ginger.

Recommended immune system supplement: Alkaline foods by Dr. h.c. Peter Jentschura are the perfect support  for the immune system, since many processes in the organism can only function properly when supplied with all nutrients and vital substances. Dr. Jentschura’s organic and gluten free products, including MorgenStund’, TischleinDeckDich, and WurzelKraft are rich in vitamins, minerals, fibre, and plant compounds. These vital substances support the excretory organs, which help the organism to metabolize and excrete harmful acids and pollutants.

WurzelKraft contains omnimolecular plant granules which are the molecules and building blocks of human life. This formula is made of 100 different varieties of fruits, vegetables, spices, seeds, herbs, and pollen. This composition provides all vital substances needed by the human organism. These include, for example, Vitamin C and iron, which are necessary for an efficient immune system. In addition, bee pollen is known as a ‘miracle’ because of its ingredients. Since the individual constituents of the granules are only dried and crushed or ground, they have a very high bioavailability compared to isolated mineral products.

WurzelKraft vegetable granules are a delicious snack between meals or can ‘upgrade’ different dishes such as salads, soups, breads, fruit salads, or vegetable and potato dishes. To ensure that all the important constituents of the product are absorbed by the organism so that the body is properly supplied with all the essentials, WurzelKraft should not be heated above 40°C, and be always properly chewed.

In addition, alkaline body care with Dr. Jentschura’s  alkaline-mineral body care salt, AlkaBath, contributes to the maintenance of the immune system. The alkaline pH of 8.5 stimulates the skin to excrete acids and toxins through the skin. Additional dry and wet brushes towards the excretory openings promote the circulation and cleansing of the lymphatic system, thus improving the excretion function of the skin and ensuring a high amount of relieving excretions.

These tips on sufficient body exercise and a health-conscious lifestyle in combination with a alkaline forming, omnimolecular diet plus alkaline body care, can permanently strengthen the immune system and your well-being!

 

MorgenStund’, TischleinDeckDich, and WurzelKraft are available in health food stores across Canada. For more information visit: www.YouInFocusProducts.com or call 1-866-722-9812 toll free.

NO EXCUSE 3 MIN WORKOUT

We cannot overemphasize the need to work out our bodies: “If you do not use you lose it.” If you get your muscles working, your metabolism get activated and your heart pumps oxygen and nutrition all over your body, while at the same time toxins and acids are released via the respiratory system.  You enjoy these benefits with any kind of workout. If you are walking, jogging, dancing, Yoga, swimming, Feldenkreis… Anything works well at your own speed. If you did not work out for quite a while start slowly but steadily.
Most people find understandable excuses in their busy life styles. But what would you say if I tell you that there are free 3 minutes workouts on YouTube which do the job.
Another really good tip is a free app for your smart phone: The Johnson & Johnson free work out app is a 7 min delight. All you need is a chair and a wall. Once you downloaded the free app you will find longer workouts available in their workout library. Very sweet and FREE.
Another good tip is to set up appointments with workout buddies. It is really fun and much easier to get going together 🙂

Nuclear physicists confirm that the universe is made out of immeasurable small particles which are basically swinging energies and vibrations.

I do not like to sound too spiritual or mystical but there are energies and sounds in this universe which support the healing of emotional and physical stress and imbalances which our bodies have to endure.

I like you try out some free videos on YouTube. Just put your mind aside and see how your body does react to certain frequencies and images. If the reaction is positive just spent some time daily listening and watching these videos. Enjoy 🙂

Causes Of Weight Gain

Unintentional weight gain is one of the fastest growing health problems in North America. The list of diseases caused by obesity is long, and is topped by heart failure and its precursors. But what causes weight gain? There are obvious factors like the food you eat, and some less obvious including stress and lack of sleep. But all these factors are part of a larger picture.

Can I enjoy my coffee and still be alkaline?

Can I enjoy my coffee and still be alkaline?

Isn’t it interesting? Drinking a cup of coffee can make us more feel more awake and aware. These are things that everyone enjoys and appreciates. In a humorous way: All of Northamerica runs on coffee 🙂

And a strong espresso is about 10.000 times more acidic then our blood. So our body needs to work hard to balance/buffer the coffee’s acidity. Lots of minerals from our “beauty pillars” skin, scalp, bones, theeth are used for that chemical reaction.

So it’s not surprising that a question that I get all the time from people is, “Can I still have coffee on the Alkaline Diet?”.

Ok, let’s be very clear on this! Coffee is very acid forming in the body. It does not have an alkalizing effect, and so its not a good idea to drink too much.

As everyone knows, the key to a happy and healthy life is to take “everything in moderation“. The key is the acid-alkaline balance.

“Is It Time For Me To Quit Drinking Coffee?”
Quitting coffee is easy if you’re ripe and ready to do it, and next to impossible if you aren’t! It really comes down to the question that each must answer for themselves… “What are my priorities?”

If you have serious health issues, and you’re committed to recovering your health as soon as possible, then quitting coffee is one of your best moves right now.

If coffee is still a priority for you, and you are not seriously ill, then you are probably not quitting it any time soon.

If that describes you, then here are a couple of tips to help you to keep an alkaline balance in your body while still having your morning coffee.

Tip #1 – Add Whipping Cream
On the alkaline diet, it’s generally accepted that yogurt (esp. goat and/or organic), sour cream made from real cream, cream cheese, butter and unsweetened whipping cream are all ok.

So instead of having your coffee black, or with some homogenized milk or cream, try adding whipping cream.

Dr. Jentschura says that whipping cream has a somewhat alkalizing effect on our bodies. This can partly buffer the acidity of the coffee before you even put it into your body!

Drinking your morning coffee will still contribute acidity to your system, but the net effect will be less damaging with the addition of the whipping cream.

Plus, whipping cream in coffee makes it very rich and deliciously creamy! It might take a bit of getting used to, but many people, myself included, find it really good!

Tip #2 – Take Some Extra of Dr. Jentschura’s WurzelKraft
When we consume acid-forming foods, our body compensates by buffering the acids with alkalizing minerals. These minerals are coming from your body’s mineral stores (your blood, skin, teeth, hair, bones, joints etc).

Before you have your cup of coffee, eat a few teaspoons or tablespoons of WurzelKraft. This provides your body with an abundance of alkalizing minerals and about 50.000 vital substances which it can use to buffer acids and build up its mineral stores.

Aim For A 80/20 Alkaline-Acid Balanced Diet
Its all about balance. Ideally, aim for 80% alkalizing foods and beverages in your daily diet. We are talking about fruits and vegetables (including grains, nuts and seeds). You don’t have to be perfect! Trying to be perfect, and thinking you need to be perfect is just setting yourself up for failure!

We all know when we are eating healthy, or unhealthy things. We all know when we are eating in unhealthy ways. Choose foods, and ways with foods, that you know are nourishing and nurturing to your body. And its ok not to be perfect.

Have a great healthy day!

How to simply alkalize your water and your body?

Main focus of a alkaline generating diet should be enjoying lots of organic vegetables and salads, but also juices and smoothies. Super life foods like Dr. Jentschura’s Wurzelkraft with 100 healing herbs also help you to mineralize and alkalize your body.

 

I like to introduce to you some simple economic changes to upgrade some of your drinking water with a good alkalizing effect. 

 

Himalayan salts do contain at least 84 naturally occurring trace elements in their natural mineral form.

The benefits of natural Himalayan Crystal Salt include:

  1. Regulating the water content throughout your body
  2. Promoting healthy pH balance in your cells, particularly your brain cells
  3. Promoting blood sugar health and helping to reduce the signs of aging
  4. Assisting in the generation of hydroelectric energy in cells in your body
  5. Absorption of food particles through your intestinal tract
  6. Supporting respiratory health
  7. Promoting sinus health
  8. Prevention of muscle cramps
  9. Promoting bone strength
  10. Regulating your sleep
  11. Promoting vascular health
  12. In conjunction with water, it is actually essential for the regulation of your blood pressure

I recommend to upgrade one large glass of filtered alkaline water in the morning with a pinch of Himalayan Crystal Salt. Also please use the salts for preparing your foods.
