The “Oil Change” for your body -Alkaline Foods Cleanse your Body

The “Oil Change” for your body

by Dr. h.c. Peter Jentschura


Just as every car needs oil change, our body also requires purification. Especially for high-stamina sportsmen, it is important to get “the sand” out of the system and to refuel after tough conditions. For athletes there is often an over-accumulation of carbonic acids, lactic acids, acetic acids, and uric acids; coupled with an acidic diet consisting of much sugar, sweets, white flour products, soft drinks, coffee, fast foods and animal products. This results in hyperacidity, which decreases overall health and well-being.

Acids slow down our power and our capacity to regenerate, as they consume vital substances like minerals, which are essential in the regeneration process. Our metabolism has to neutralize the excess acids and waste products with our own vital alkaline substances. If these vital alkaline substances are not abundant in our diet, our body’s’ own reserves– such as skin, hair, teeth, bones, joints, and tendons– will be “targeted”. This quickens the wear out process. Additionally formed neutral salts will be deposited as waste products, which create a bottleneck in our excretory organs. Performance declines and increased risks of injuries are inevitable.


Oil Change

The key to maximum regeneration and permanent productivity is through internal cleansing and purification. For the body, detoxification always occurs in 3 steps, which we will refer to as a “triple jump of purification”:

  1. Removing  waste products

Herbal teas, especially those designed specifically for removing waste products, reactivate deposited acids. Start with a small amount of tea in the beginning, and then increase step by step. Everything that is soluble by tea has to be metabolized in the end.

  1. Neutralization and Removal of Acidity

Our body needs the whole spectrum of vital nutrients derived from plant foods like vegetables, salads, sprouts, and seeds in order to remove the freed acids. These plant foods optimize the natural systems and enzymes for de-acidification and are essential for energy production, regeneration, and increased efficiency. They take care of strong muscles, stable tendons and joints as well as strong bones.


  1. Elimination of acidity

Finally the soluble acids have to be eliminated. In this process the skin plays a central role with its countless sweat glands and sebaceous glands. The substances that our kidneys, intestines, and lungs are not able to eliminate can be eliminated through the skin with alkaline body care. Alkaline baths and foot baths, peelings, and massages have all proven to be extremely effective in the purification process. They also have the added benefit of making the skin velvety soft and smooth, and able to eliminate effectively.

The result of the “oil change” is a revitalized, taut and beautiful body—both internally and externally.

German Dr. h.c. P. Jenschura’s book and complete alkalizing program is a bestseller in Europe.

Book and products are now available in Canada and the USA. Please visit for more info www.YouInFocusProducts.com

YouInFocusProducts is a Canadian distribution company based in Edmonton, AB. The company is owned by Stephan Wilmes, the AlkalineDietGuy.  Stephan created the AlkalineLifeStyle and holds his alkaline lectures all over Canada.

Lecture All about the alkaline life style…


Everybody speaks about the miracles that happen when you alkalize your body. What the truth of this? What is the difference between an alkaline or acidic life style and how does it affect our health?

We will speak about the different aspects and consequences of living the alkaline life style and discuss the following topics:

What deteriorates our health and wellbeing?

How to stay healthy, energetic and beautiful?

Organic vs. inorganic dietary supplements

Responsible pregnancy

Toxins and weight loss




This lecture is crucial: People don’t realize what they do to their bodies in eating processed food and spending their lives being continuously stressed. Both create acidity. To deal with the large amounts of acidity we rob our bodies’ mineral deposits. This starts the process of deterioration. 

Instead of dying at the age of 100-120 in a healthy body after a fulfilled life most of us die at 70-80 years old after 10-20 years of suffering from diseases and longing for deep fulfillment.



The lecture will be held by Stephan Wilmes aka AlkalineDietGuy. Stephan is an Ayurvedic therapist.



As a young man I loved sports: in team sports I played soccer and basketball. In martial arts, I became German Heavyweight Boxing Champion and Second World Military Boxing Champion. After my professional sports career I finished my Business Degree at the University in Munich, Germany and received the Wacker Chemistry Price for the Best Diploma Thesis.

I am also a Ayurvedic Therapist and used to own the Ayurveda Wellness Center Munich. Knowing the powerful cleansing and healing effects of Ayurvedic Sciences, I really acknowledge the same beneficial value of applying the Dr. P. Jentschura Cure from Germany. The Dr. Jentschura cure seems to me more appropriate for our western civilization. That’s why we promote the cure in North America.

Questions concerning Alkaline Foods, Gum Care and the Function of Water/Alkaline Drinks

Posted on : 17-02-2010 | By : Stephan, The Alkaline Diet Guy | In : Uncategorized


1.  Why does the book say to drink low mineral water?   I like to drink water on the alkaline side (Fiji, Evian, Essential) or artesian well water and I sometimes add an alkaline ph booster to water which is purified such as Danani or Aquafina.  Alkaline water has more minerals which should be good, should it not?  Do we have to get our minerals from food and not water?


You are on the right track….  Dr. h.c. Jentschura recommends to drink low mineralized water (which usually is slightly alkaline) because of the 2 functions of the water: to hydrate our body and to help the body to eliminate toxins and acids.


Usually the ph booster just adds mineral salts to the water – which is just positive on a short term. If I have a heart attack or feel strong pain or suffer from a serious disease I would drink the |Alkaline Drink at 10.00 am, 4.00 pm and 10.00 pm (made with AlkaBath, Baking Soda or any ph booster and water) to boost my bloods ph-level. Then my bloods starts to transport oxygen and nutrition much better again, so my life sustaining functions work again!


The recommended times are the times of alkaline floods in the body – just like the tides of the ocean.


But: the Alkaline Drink is just a fire made with straw. Since mineral salts just boost the ph-level of the blood and the urine they are not able to help us long term.


Because only plant-derived organic minerals are able to chemically bind a toxin/acid and then a mineral salt is created. The body easily is able to eliminate mineral salts if all organs are working fine.


We have to realize that the overflow of acids (due to a stressful lifestyle and acidic generating diet) is creating all body degeneration.


In order to reverse this process we created the Alkaline Life Style:

Offer the body an abundance of organic minerals (with WurzelKraft, MorgenStund, Spirulina and lots of fresh, green foods), 

Help the body cleanse (e.g. with AlkaHerb but also Colon/Kidney Cleansing so all nutrition can be easily absorbed).

Good fresh air and refreshing body movement is very important too.

Also we recommend Cranio-Sacral Healing Sessions to heal old childhood wounds. 

But a deep and nourishing body-mind-soul connection is crucial: Creating love is crucial. Believing in healing and goodness is the base for change.


2.  I have been having trouble loosing metal fillings and crowns in the last couple years.  I use a toothpaste called Claybrite which has clay it in (a detoxer) and of course I have recently been drinking the 7×7 tea. 

Do you think there is any chance that these products are trying to eliminate non-natural elements from my mouth, i.e. metal fillings?


Well, what you mean with metal fillings. I hope not Amalgam. Because that is very toxic and even for bitten in some countries e.g. like Sweden.


Gold or ceramic crones are much better and more natural….


I highly doubt that you loose the fillings because of Claybrite or AlkaHerb!


I found some good tips for gum problems: Clean your gums and teeth with AlkaBath very carefully and let is work for some time in your mouth. The high alkalinity of the bath salt kills all germs. 

Also tea tree oil is very good for gums and tooth care.

Colloidal silver is a medieval antibiotic remedy.

Alkaline Foods and the Alkaline Diet

Posted on : 12-01-2010 | By : Stephan, The Alkaline Diet Guy | In : alkaline diet, Alkaline Diet Health Tips, Alkaline Foods: Alkalizing Your Body, Alkaline Life Style, Featured


The alkaline lifestyle diet is one of the most revolutionary diets to grow in popularity in the past few years!

The eating principles of the diet (vegetarian, organic foods) are not new, but the addition of the “alkaline vs. acid balance factor” is definitely something that has not been readily seen in the world of nutrition.

The acid/alkaline balance of our bodies is something that many people have never heard of, although the concepts have been part of Chinese medicine for thousands of years. The alkaline lifestyle diet may seem strange upon your first encounter, but once you find out more about the concepts and benefits you’ll be  motivated to try this way of eating.

The alkaline lifestyle diet is a definite transition from the standard Western diet. If you are embarking on a journey to health and plan to switch to the alkaline lifestyle diet you will definitely experience a transition in your life. This diet requires you to think about food and eating in an entirely new way. You’ll be challenging old ways of thinking about nutrition, such as meat is an important part of every meal and milk is beneficial to your health. It can be difficult to make a completely 180-degree turn in your way of eating and cooking.

However, in order to have success on the alkaline lifestyle diet, you don’t have to make that 180-degree turn in just one week.

Decide to make small steps to change. They do not all have to be done at once. If you radically change your diet and are eating unfamiliar foods, cooking unfamiliar recipes and missing out on your favorite meals, you will not stay on the diet for very long, no matter how healthy it is.

The best approach to adapting the alkaline lifestyle diet is to do it slowly and at your own pace!

Taking a slower approach is also helpful because it will help you understand how the diet is affecting your body. Even if you learn all of the science behind the acid/alkaline balance, you won’t really know it well until you’ve done it yourself. Incorporating this new way of eating into your body step by step will allow you to feel the effects of the acid/alkaline process. You can measure the science against your personal opinion and how your body responds.

Everybody is different and you may find as you start living the alkaline diet lifestyle that certain aspects of don’t work for you. Maybe you cannot go vegetarian completely, or you find it difficult to go without certain acid-forming fruits.

Testing out the principles of the alkaline lifestyle diet on your own body will allow you to decide what works and what doesn’t. The goal of the diet is find a balance of 70% alkaline and 30% acid foods. This means that you can still enjoy the foods that you love as long as they are balanced by alkalizing foods.

The transition to an ideal alkaline-acid balance is something you should take at your own pace.

This is particularly true if you have had a diet full of acid-forming foods or if you have any major health problems. Your body will need time to respond to this new way of eating and adjust to operating on natural foods.

The transition into balanced eating is a journey that should be traveled in small, incremental step.

Getting More Alkaline Foods into your Diet

Posted on : 11-01-2010 | By : Stephan, The Alkaline Diet Guy | In : alkaline diet, Alkaline Diet Health Tips, Alkaline Foods and Alkaline Body Care, Alkaline Foods: Alkalizing Your Body


Getting More Alkaline Food into Your Diet!

The alkaline diet is a very new way to look at how you eat. The essentials of the diet are to keep the ph balance of food intake at 80% alkaline with 20% acidity. The goal with this diet is to match the ph level of the bloodstream, which runs on the alkaline side. This task can be daunting for many because foods that most people love to indulge themselves on are considered high in acidity. The goal in adding more alkaline into your diet is to identify good sources of alkaline. Creating a comprehensive list of alkaline producing foods will help you make the most of the alkaline diet.

Alkalizing foods have a tonic effect on the body. By neutralizing the acidity in the bloodstream, alkaline foods act as a “breath of fresh air” to the system regenerating and restoring damaged cells. Diets high in acidic foods cause the body to break down prematurely, the bloodstream carries these “acid bombs” throughout the system wreaking havoc in their wake. By determining what foods have an alkalizing effect on the body, we can incorporate them into our diet in larger amounts, setting the pH levels in the bloodstream to the optimum level. On average, the pH level of human blood is between 7.35 and 7.45; levels 7 and above are considered alkaline.

Vegetables and fruits are the easiest ways to get more alkaline into your diet. Vegetables that are alkalizing are:

Interview with Dr. Jentschura -Alkaline Food & Alkaline Diet Expert

Posted on : 13-11-2009 | By : Stephan, The Alkaline Diet Guy | In : alkaline diet, Alkaline Expert Interview, Alkaline Foods and Alkaline Body Care, Featured, Healing Cancer with Alkaline Foods


Since we had technical problems in the first 10 min of our radio interview, here we go….

Welcome to BlogTalkRadio, Welcome to the AlkalineDietGuy aka StephanWilmes. Our mission is to raise your body’s alkaline level to avoid painful diseases and to boost your vitality.

Our guest today is Dr. Peter Jentschura!

He is a international best-selling author (“Health by Purification) and founder of Jentschura International GmbH. He has dedicated his life to research the effect of acids and alkalines in the human body on a biochemical level.

The Jentschura International GmbH is the global leading company in alkaline foods and body care products and is successfully helping people in 25 different countries worldwide.

Dr. Jentschura, besides to your activity as industrial business manager you are also a successful editor.

Indeed. My two books “Health by Purification” and “zivilisatoselos leben” are international bestsellers, translated into several worldwide spoken languages. The topics I wrote about are health, aging and the modern civilisation diseases.

Together with my co-author Josef Lohkämper, we demonstrate how the present living and nutrition habits negatively influence the acid-alkaline balance in the human biochemistry. We also point out that long-lasting health and beauty are definitely based on an alkaline-generating nutrition and alkaline body care.

Dr. Jentschura, the Moscow University of Natural Science honoured your lifelong research and granted you the title of Doctor honoris causa in biomedicine on 1st June 2007. What significance does this title have for you personally?

It was a very special moment indeed. It was the appreciation and valuing of my comprehensive and permanent research work and an acknowledgment of my theories and discoveries. It was a marvellous and divine moment which encouraged me to go on. ******

Jentschura International GmbH is an international developer and manufacturer of alkaline body care products and alkaline-generating food products. The Executive Board and Management team are based in Münster, Germany. The family business, founded in 1993, employs a staff of about 100 people working in administration and production. The company not only supplies its products to the German domestic market but also primarily to its European neighbours as well as to Russia, Canada, the US, Korea and Taiwan. The international market leader with own branches in Switzerland and Mexico exports its health, beauty, performance and regeneration products and concepts to a total of 26 countries.

Dr. Jentschura, your company Jentschura International GmbH has its roots in the old German drugstore business. Can you give us some more details about this?

In 1935 my parents Margarete and Helmut Jentschura were already running a drugstore in Breslau. They were researching the composition, application and effects of natural body care products and healthy food stuff, especially that of their own tea selections.

How did you continue this research work?

First I was trained as industrial manager. Then I continued with promoting as a druggist. In 1966 I thus followed up the family tradition. Whilst running a regular drugstore business I started with naturopathic research on the human biochemistry with focus on toxin built-up, purification and regeneration processes. This research work set the basis for the present core products of the P. Jentschura product range.

ALKALINEDIETGUY An old German proverb says „In the morning eat like an emperor, at midday like a nobleman and in the evening like a beggar”. Dr. Jentschura, you are considered to be an expert to all issues related to the human metabolism. Therefore you can certainly answer the question why one should eat this way.

This question could already have been answered decades ago by the famous Professor Friedrich Sander of the University of Braunschweig. He postulated that between 5am and 7am a big acid flood runs through our body. He noticed this with his urine measurements.
The acid floods during the day are generated by the parietal cells of the stomach – one in the morning at 7am and one at 1pm, at 7pm and again at 1am at night. The morning acid flood is the strongest.

My colleague Josef Lohkämper and I have done further research. A strong acid flood of the stomach means that precisely at that time the largest plenitude of digestive juices is available. At that time the stomach is able to digest at a high rate. The digestive ability decreases from acid flood to acid flood. This is why you should eat less at lunchtime and even lesser in the evening.

How do you start your day in an “imperial way”?

For me “morning” has a lot of different meanings. On the one hand there is the big acid flood Professor Friedrich Sander spoke about, which invites you to have an ample breakfast. On the other hand there is the red sky in the morning when nature switches on the light of the day and encourages the plant realm to release oxygen so that all human beings firstly awake and start living.

For me one perception bears a meaning which I think I have taken from the Book Daniel. In my understanding it says that the hour of the red sky in the morning is the time when gold arises in our bodies by means of cold and warm nuclear fusion from the elements of the air we breathe. It might be the origin of the old German proverb “MorgenStund’ hat Gold im Mund”.

That sounds very esoteric, even if you refer to the Book Daniel from the Old Testament.

Well you know, terms and claims are esoteric for us only as long as we do not understand their meaning or as long as we have not gained enough information about. Once the degree of knowledge is sufficiently high the previously “esoteric” things become quite clear.
I have for example created a breakfast porridge and sincerely tried to select as many ingredients as possible containing the element gold, according to the research of the German naturopaths family Leisen and my friend Josef Lohkämper. Some of the ingredients are millet, apple, pineapple, amaranth, sunflower seed and sweet almonds.

In your opinion, what is the mission of the element gold in our human metabolism?

Healing Skin Diseases with Alkaline Food + Life Style…

Posted on : 10-10-2009 | By : Stephan, The Alkaline Diet Guy | In : Skin Diseases, Uncategorized Alkaline Foods


I received this question concerning skin diseases:
“Dear Stephan,
I have been using your products (Dr. Jentschura Alkaline Cure) for a few months and have recommended it to many people. A friend of mine who has psoriasis on her hands and feet is trying the salts and the tea.
When she soaked her feet in the Alkabath her feet felt great. This was on Friday evening.
She decided to soak her hands in the salts and her hands began to crack and bleed. She of course will continue to soak her feet and drink the tea, but what about the effect on her hands.
Could you comment on this for me.

Thank you for making such a product available in Canada.”

Thank you very much for your email!!!!

Your dear friend suffers from dry and damaged skin due to over-acidification and poisoning.

Since the skin on her hands is already quite damaged
actually the body tried to get rid of toxins and acids via bleeding in contact with the high alkalinity of Dr Jentschuras AlkaBath. (A side info: as babies we swim in amniotic fluid with the ph-level of 8.5 for 10 month and have super soft healthy skin. The same ph-level is created by Dr. Jentschura’s bath salts to pull out toxins and acids via the principle of Osmosis.)

The bleeding is painful and scary.

We recommend continuing purifying the body using the skin in daily long, long full and foot bath using Dr. Jentschura’s AlkaBath (also Dr. Jentschura’s Alkaline Stockings for overnight purification help very much).

But either avoid direct contact with the hands and the alkaline solution or treat the hands with organic olive oil before bringing them in contact with alkaline solutions. The saturated fat of the oil helps binding toxins and acids on the infected skin. After using olive oil she can wear our alkaline cuffs or thin cotton gloves soaked in alkaline solution and bigger gloves on top to keep her hands warm.

Absolute important is the change of diet: no more milk products, white flour products, coffee, sugar, red meet, etc. for a couple of month. Because her body is very clearly inviting a change!
Instead regenerate the body with greens: veggies and salats.
Of course we highly recommend MorgenStund, our highly alkaline morning porridge and Dr Jentschuras WurzelKraft, the best whole food dietary supplement made out of 100 herbs to flood the body with all vital substances. Or course any other top quality dietary supplement helps us getting vital substances. These are desperately needed to refill our mineral deposits and to boost our life forces again. WurzelKraft with its multitude of herbs also helps to realign the body and to get rid of cravings.

Generally speaking it is also very important to cleanse the colon because only a healthy, clean colon is able to absorb great food. (In Edmonton we recommend Solis Wellness)

We do not recommend the complete triple jump to health by Dr Jentschura for your friend. If your friend is already suffering from a skin disease she should wait with the cleansing jump for about 8 to 10 weeks. Dr Jentschuras AlkaHerb with 49 herbs is a fantastic cleansing tea which will help to release toxins and acids.
But since her organism is already suffering from large amounts of free floating, unbound toxins and acids, these have to be first bound and eliminated with lots of organic natural minerals.

My last invitation is also the saying: Love heals all!
This is the most important knowledge to share.
A deep commitment to move into love is crucial! Because this commitment will open up lots of good little steps into a good, healthy direction.

One of these steps could be to heal old childhood wounds which often subconsciously determine our life and eating choices. One healing path can be Cranio-Sacral Therapy. For Edmonton adresses please contact us…

Are You Open to Healing Cancer with an Alkaline Foods

Posted on : 24-08-2009 | By : Stephan, The Alkaline Diet Guy | In : alkaline diet, Healing Cancer with Alkaline Foods


I personally meet some people who healed their cancer with the alkaline diet!!

Similar to the Ayurvedic Treatment you have to complete change your life style and eating habbits to cure such life treatening disease!

Green vegetarian alkaline diet, colon cleansing, daily hours of alkaline full bath with Dr. Jentschura AlkaBath, moderate excercise in mother nature, releasing deep emotional pain from the past through a cranio-sacral therapy are some of the pillars for the alternative treatment.

Alkaline Drinks also may help a lot to lift the bloods Ph-level. A Alkaline Drink is a glass of water with about 1 tea spoon of Baking Soda and some maple syrup. As a result to the Alkaline Drink the blood is able to transport oxygen and nutrition much better. The drink should be taken at 10.00 am, at 4.00 pm and at 10.00 pm but you should not eat about 1 hour before and after the drink.

This drink is also very good against any pain and headache.

But also notice that the Alkaline Drink is not forever. Crucial is that you fill up your mineral deposits in your body with all organic minerals generated by plants!!! The abundance of minerals, vitamins and all vital substances to your body is essential. But also a colon cleansing (eg. colon-hydro therapy) is very important!

Please consult your ND or MD.

Alkaline Foods Helps With Constipation

Posted on : 17-08-2009 | By : Stephan, The Alkaline Diet Guy | In : How Alkaline Foods can help with constipation, Uncategorized Alkaline Foods


Many people suffer now and again, or even for many years, from chronic constipation. More women than men are affected by this ailment. This problem often starts gradually and leads to a feeling of fullness, a distended stomach and a general feeling of being unwell, right through to cramp-like pains when passing a stool and the development of hemorrhoids, especially with hard stools. People who are affected usually go to the toilet less than three times a week.

If serious organic reasons for constipation have been ruled out, then not drinking enough, a lack of minerals such as magnesium, lack of exercise, mental problems and also some drugs could play a role in the causes. Insufficient time or going to the toilet in the wrong place can also often prevent the bowels being emptied healthily.

A major cause of constipation is a diet which is heavy in acids, due to excessive consumption of coffee, alcohol, candy, crisps, fast food, meat, fish, cooked meats etc. This can result in a lack of the important fiber we obtain from vegetables, raw foods, fruit and wholegrain products such as amaranth, quinoa, millet etc. which on the one hand increases our feeling of fullness and on the other hand retains water in the intestines, increases the volume of the stools and through the increased pressure stimulates digestive activity.

Alongside the kidneys, the lungs and the skin, the intestine is a primary elimination organ. With lasting constipation, the elimination function of this major organ more or less ceases. The resultant back pressure of acids and toxins also leads to decomposition and fermentation in the intestine, with negative consequences on our health. Inflammation of the intestines, overweight, cellulite, fungal infestations, back pain, menstruation problems etc. can develop as a result.

What can be done against constipation?

Acid generating substances should be reduced or avoided. You should also stop smoking and reduce your stress level.

An adequate and alkaline-generating diet including plenty of vegetables, salad, raw foods, fruit and seeds encourages our digestive processes in a natural way due to the fiber content. When eating you should ensure you chew thoroughly, because as the saying goes, “chewing well is half way to digesting”.

Taking four tablespoons of WurzelKraft (AlkaLife) during the day has proved to be helpful. The powder from the one hundred plants it contains encourages digestive activity in a fully natural way. Taking at least two teaspoons of flax seeds in a glass of water in the evening has also been shown to help the digestion by the next morning. The mixture should be drunk down as quickly as possible.

To help the digestion first thing in the morning, we highly recommend MorgenStund´ millet and buckwheat porridge, with the addition of several teaspoons of WurzelKraft (AlkaLife), fruit, nuts and perhaps a dash of cream, soya milk or rice milk.

At midday raw foods and salad can best be digested, and in the evening you are recommended to eat steamed vegetables with potatoes, millet etc., a hotpot or vegetable soup. The evening meal should not be too generous and should not be eaten later than 19.00 so that the intestine is not unnecessarily overloaded and intestinal fermentation overnight is avoided.

Flax seeds, semen plantaginis, can also be used for constipation, but are only effective when taken with plenty of non-carbonated water. Ribwort seeds can also be taken – mix one heaped teaspoon of these seeds in a glass of water, stir well and drink it down immediately.

Dried prunes which have been soaked in water are also a proven domestic remedy for constipation.

In general it is important to drink 1.5-2 litres of non-carbonated water during the day, and in addition 0.5-1.5 litres of 7×7 KräuterTee (7×7 AlkaHerb) is recommended to loosen any intestinal waste. If necessary an occasional alkaline drink can also be helpful.

Alkaline foot baths and full baths support the elimination of acids and harmful substances via the skin. Two to three foot baths a week are recommended, or the alkaline stockings and 1 full bath a week. Brushing the body in the elimination direction during the alkaline baths has also proved to be useful. The abdomen should be brushed downwards.

Alkaline enemas are a gentle and natural way of cleansing the large intestine. 7×7 KräuterTee (7×7 AlkaHerb) with a pinch of MeineBase (AlkaBath) is recommended as an enema fluid.

Regular exercise in the fresh air also encourages digestion and counteracts constipation. A very helpful form of exercise is regular jumping on the trampoline. Have a jump before breakfast, before lunch and before your evening meal for two to three minutes as far as possible. This works wonders, either for constipation or for shifting flatulence.

On a deeper level constipation could also be a sign for a deep holding, a deep fear of letting go of control over ones life. If we are constantly trying to forcefully control every aspect of our life we soon loose deep joy and love. Instead of spontanious we become controlling and fearful.
Since we believe that body, mind and soul are very connected only we as honesty and love can heal us completely…

Toxins, Weight Loss and Alkaline Foods

Posted on : 07-08-2009 | By : Stephan, The Alkaline Diet Guy | In : Uncategorized Alkaline Foods


Toxins and Our Weight

In today’s world, we’re exposed to a myriad of toxins and pollution.

These come from things as diverse as the off-gassing of new carpet, the exhaust of automobiles, and residues of herbicides and pesticides in our food and water. (The list goes on.)

Internally, our bodies are very sensitive and easily recognize the difference between the beneficial nutrients we get in our food and the toxic chemicals we’re exposed to that get into our bodies. The difficult part is getting the toxins out of our system once they’re in.

If our physiology isn’t strong, there may not be the energy and resource to remove the toxins.

Having toxins in our bodies can be like coming home to a dirty house after a long day at work and having guests due to arrive in just a few minutes. In an attempt to tidy things up with the time and energy we have, we may just toss a lot of the mess into a nearby closet, leaving the proper sorting and cleaning for later when we have more time and energy.

When our bodies are faced with more to clean up than there seems time and energy for, the nearby closets they use to “tidy things up” are fatty tissues. Our bodies toss the toxins into our fat to keep them “out of harms way.” Our bodies know there’s much less danger with the toxins stored in the fat than floating through our bloodstream and vital organs.

In this way, fat is our friend. By holding onto our fat stores, even in the midst of dieting, our vital organs and tissues are protected from the damaging effects of the toxins and pollutants.

To ensure our organs are safe from these toxins, our bodies (intelligently) raise the fat thermostat. This means that when we want to lose weight by starting a diet, our bodies fight to keep the fat in place in order to protect us from the toxins. This is the struggle many dieters experience in trying to get that extra weight off.

Cleansing is great but it has to be correct!

So, how can we lower the fat thermostat to drop the extra pounds and do it in a way that’s healthy? It’s a simple matter of cleansing out those toxins at the cellular level.

It is important ot eat a lot of cleansing alkaline whole foods.

These whole foods are highly alkaline and our bodies need to be alkaline to be healthy. By eating more alkaline foods, our tissues are

gradually and gently cleansed of acidic by-products and waste (toxins).

All love and health to you,
