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.

Alkaline Hydrotherapy – Cultivating Health From the Inside Out!

Posted on : 10-09-2015 | By : Stephan, The Alkaline Diet Guy | In : Alkaline Diet Health Tips, Alkaline Expert Interview, Alkaline Foods and Alkaline Body Care, Alkaline Life Style

by Dr. Jacqueline Cooper, ND Naturopathic Foundations Clinic, Markham, ON
Hydrotherapyor water therapy, has been used for hundreds of years to effectively treat a wide variety of health conditions from the common cold to cancer. Most people’s recognition of hydrotherapy is limited to using ice packs to quell inflammation and hot applications to decrease muscle tension, alleviate cramps and stimulate healing. However, the reality is hydrotherapy is effective at treating a wide range of symptoms and conditions. 

A common misconception is that the more serious or longstanding a health concern is, the more aggressive the treatment must be. This can lead people to pursue dramatic treatments that can actually hinder their health, while overlooking simple yet powerful practices that promote it. Hydrotherapy is an example of a gentle yet powerful tool that is often overlooked. While water itself is deeply healing, adding alkaline salts further increases the therapeutic value of hydrotherapy treatments.


Benefits to Alkaline Hydrotherapy

Alkaline hydrotherapy has profound effects despite its simplicity. One of the main things to consider with alkaline hydrotherapy is that the longer and more frequent the treatments sessions, the faster and more dramatic the results. You cannot overdo it. 

That being said, some individuals may find initially they experience a worsening of skin symptoms – this is rare, but possible. Individuals who experience this tend to have extreme toxicities or deficiencies that need to be corrected. If you experience a worsening of symptom,s it is important that you consult with a naturopathic doctor to address the underlying factors responsible. 

The physiological benefits derived from alkaline hydrotherapy include:

  • Increases the elimination of chemicals via the skin, thereby preventing the accumulation of toxins and alleviating stress on other organs, particularly the kidneys.
  • Effetively eliminating toxins improves the circulation of blood and lymph. This improves organ function, relieves strains on the musculoskeletal system and improves skin conditions such as eczemapsoriasis,acne and cellulite.
  • Facilitates the elimination of lactic acid, thereby improving muscle relaxation and recovery.
  • Provides relief following a sunburn, as well as healing skin that has been chronically over-exposed to the sun
  • Rehydrates the skin by causing the skin to self-oil, therefore moisturizing the skin from within

 

Choosing the Right Salts

  • Epsom salts are great for promoting muscle relaxation. However, they do not alkalinize the water and therefore, do not facilitate detoxification the way alkaline salts do. Epsom salts can also leave the skin feeling dry as opposed to alkaline salts which promote self-oiling.
  • Avoid salts that contain fragrances. Fragrance is one of the most toxic ingredients you can find in a product. One of the reasons being that companies do not need to declare what chemicals they put in their fragrances, as it is considered a trade secret. If you want a fragrance add essential oils to the bath or the salts yourself.
  • Alkaline salts assist in preventing muscles from tightening (similar to epsom salts). However, they also promote muscle recovery by helping the muscles to process lactic acid and detoxify the system as a whole.
Here at Naturopathic Foundations Health Clinic we use AlkaBath alkaline salts. When prepared in the proportions described above, an alkalinity of 8-8.5 pH is achieved (depending on the hardness of the tap water). In addition to making the water alkaline, AlkaBath salts also contain small measures of eight precious stones: agate, carneol, citrine, chrysoprase, onyx, rock crystal, sapphire and chalcedony. The presence of these stones amplifies the therapeutic properties of the bath immensely. Lithotherapy is the use of stones to restore optimal physiological balance and realign the body energetically. Lithotherapy has been used in varying degrees for thousands of years by almost every traditional form of medicine – Chinese, Aryuvedic, Ancient Egyptian & Greek physicians, American Shamans, etc. 

Methods of Utilizing Alkaline Hydrotherapy

Full Baths

Benefits: Provides maximal skin exposure to the alkaline water and therefore is the most effective application.

Preparation

  • Add 3 heaping tablespoons of alkaline salts to your bath tub after filling with water (approximately 36-38 degrees Celsius). The bath does not have to be hot in order to be therapeutic. If the water is too hot, you may have a hard time staying in for long periods, and emerge from the bath feeling weak and exhausted. If this is the case, try starting with the water at a cooler temperature. Because the alkaline salts cause you skin to self-oil, you will discover that you do not feel cold, even as the water cools down. Conversely, if you want the heat you can leave room in the tub to add hot water as time passes.
  • Stay in the bath for at least 30 minutes, 45-60 minutes is ideal. For those with chronic concerns, longer durations are recommended (often 2 hours is the prescribed time allotment).
Acute Uses
  • After exercise to facilitate muscle recovery
  • During a cold or flu, an alkaline bath helps alleviate muscle aches, control fevers and draw out the infection
  • When afflicted with a virus that has skin symptoms such as: chicken pox, shingles, molluscum, measles, etc
  • Following sun exposure to minimize burn & subsequent skin damage and cancer risk
Chronic Uses 
  • Ideally should be incorporated weekly as part of a general wellness regimen
  • Performed regularly by athletes, dancers or those who are generally active (or were heavily active in the past) as a means of preventing arthritis and other inflammatory conditions.
  • For the eradication of ‘liver’ or ‘age’ spots
  • Skin conditions such as acne, eczema, psoriasis and fungal infections.

Foot Baths

Benefits: Good for those who do not have a bath tub or cannot use one due to mobility issues. In Traditional Chines Medicine the kidney channel (which is associated with the excretion of impurities) begins in the foot, so the feet are considered elimination ‘hot spots’ – just like the underarms. Excessive sweating can sometimes be associated with an increased toxic burden.
Preparation
  • Add 1 heaping teaspoon of alkaline salts to a basin of water large enough to submerge both feet. Your feet can tolerate warmer temperatures (38-41 degrees Celsius is typically a soothing temperature for a foot bath).
Acute Uses
  • After a run/long walk or standing on your feet for a long period
  • Following a sprain or strain of a toe or ankle
Chronic Uses 
  • As a general part of an ongoing wellness regimen
  • Arthritis
  • Athletes foot and/or toenail fungus

Wraps

Benefits: They provide a way for localizing treatment when a particular area of the body requires detoxification and healing.
Preparation
  • Specifically designed wraps can be purchased or you can improvise at home. A non-dyed cotton is the best material for a therapeutic wrap. The size and length of the wrap depends on what area of the body it’s being applied to (it should be able to wrap around the body part its being applied to 4-6 times)
    • Ankle/Wrist
    • Knees/Elbow
    • Shoulder
    • Neck
    • Upper Torso – you can improvise with a t-shirt. Wring it out, put it on, and then put a dry t-shirt or sweatshirt on over top. It is important to make sure you stay warm.  You do not want to become chilled. If you are prone to being cold, consider bringing a hot water bottle to bed with you.
  • Add 1 heaping teaspoon into a bowl of water and then soak half of the wrap and wring it out slightly. Wrap the wet half around the affected body part and continue wrapping so that the dry half of the wrap is wrapped over top of the wet half. Use safety pins to fasten it.
  • Wraps are ideal to wear to while puttering at home, watching TV, or for maximal length exposure can be worn to bed.

Acute Uses

Chronic Uses
  • Chronic injuries (i.e. frozen shoulder, knee issues, ankle weakness etc.)
  • Chronic headaches or migraines (use a neck wrap – ideally wear to bed)
  • Thyroid issues (neck wrap)

Cuffs

Benefits: Cuffs are worn around wrists & forearms or ankles & lower legs. Similar to wraps, they can be worn around the house or to bed.
Preparation
  • You can purchase cuffs or improvise at home home by cutting the toe off a sock.
  • Prepare using same salt to water ration as wraps (1 heaping teaspoon of alkaline salts in a small-medium size bowl of water).
  • Dip the cuffs into the water, wring them out to desired level of dampness and then put them on.
  • Like all other forms of alkaline hydrotherapy, ensure at least 30 minutes of length, but aim for longer (overnight even) if possible.
Acute Uses
  • During exercise to assist in processing & eliminating lactic acid, thereby improving muscle endurance & recovery.
Chronic Uses
  • Ankle weakness/instability – this is especially important as we age for preventing falls.
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

Spritzers

Benefits: Provides a quick easy deliver of alkaline hydrotherapy that can be used intermittently between other forms of treatment to expedite and maintain desired outcomes.
Preparation
  • Find a spray/spritz bottle of any size. Place about 1/2 teaspoon of alkaline salts for approximately ever 100 ml of water. If you find that the spray bottle is not spraying you may need to dilute the solution.
Acute Uses
  • Itch relief from bug bites or eczema
  • Promotes healing and assists with disinfection of wounds.
Chronic Uses
  • Skin conditions such as cellulite, acne, eczema & psoriasis – spritz the affected area daily after showering and again before bed.
  • Alternatively to deodorant or anti-perspirant – it prevents body odor while also detoxifying the area. This is important since conventional anti-perspirants not only suppress the body’s natural detoxification mechanisms, but also contain many toxic substances. Aluminum, in many women’s deodorants, has been associated with an increased risk of breast cancer.
  • Homemade facial toner – You should only use a cleanser at night to clean off make-up and dirt that have accumulated through the day. In the morning simply wash with water and/or use a toner followed by your daily moisturizer.
At Naturopathic Foundations, our aim is to provide patients with tools that they can use at home on an ongoing basis to maintain their health. If you have not tried AlkaBath salts before, drop by our clinic to pick up a free sample and speak with myself or one of the other doctors about the health benefits they provide.

How to quickly fill up your blood with lots of vital substances in spring.
Spring is coming and most people think about spring cleanse.
With the warmer temperatures it is good to integrate juicing and smoothies to your diet. Today we want to focus on juicing.

If you do not own a juicer, a “middle class” juicer for $100 will do the trick.

Juicing allows vitamins, minerals, vital substances and nutrients to go straight into the bloodstream, without the body having to expend energy to break down food.

There are many health benefits of drinking freshly juiced fruits and vegetables, and it’s a great way to add nutrients from the fruits or vegetables that you normally wouldn’t eat. Fruit and vegetable juices retain most of of the vitamins, minerals and plant chemicals (phytonutrients) that would be found in the whole versions of those foods. These nutrients can help protect against cardiovascular disease, cancer and various inflammatory diseases, like rheumatoid arthritis. Valuable compounds called flavonoids and anthocyanins are abundant in a variety of fruits and vegetables and protect against cellular oxidation, which comes from everyday cellular maintenance and is exacerbated by exposure to acids and toxins.

Experts say that juicing can lead to clearer skin, better sleep and a stronger immune system

My favorite recipe:
The greener the better: add cucumber, green leaves (chard, kale), beets, carrots, celery, parsley and 2 apples. If you like add to your juice 1-6 table spoons of Dr. Jentschura’s life food WurzelKraft to make it a SUPER-POWER-JUICE

Dr. h.c. P.Jentschura works with many international sport stars and teams e.g. the Austrian Olympic Winter Ski Team. Canadian Olympic athlete Larisa Yurkiw
announced on her Facebook page:

“My coach, Kurt, first introduced the Canadian women’s team to Roland Jentschura last season. I was curious about the information. This summer, I visited Christian Harzenmoser in St. Gallen, Switzerland for a consult and blood test. For most people, this initial test shows quite a bit of fungus, candida, heavy metals, etc. in the blood. Simply said, they’re inhibiting my circulation and ability to fight sickness and stress. The products from P. Jentschura target these abnormalities. So with the help of Roland, Christian and 5 alkaline products, I am proud to say my red blood cells are floating freely and my circulation is kicking ass.

I’m very lucky to have the help of so many from my circles.. but Kurt is also bringing lots of new contacts and opportunities to the table. We are not leaving any stone unturned.

Here’s to having good, basic blood Thank you, P.Jentschura.”Larisa Yurkiw
