Supplements and pH balance

Posted Aug 27 2009 12:28am

The company that makes the green food that I sell on my site started out with three products; the green food, pH test sticks and drops to put in your water. They have been adding products ever since and now I just got news that they were changing formulations, packaging and names once again to make room for even more products in their arsenal. They want to be the premier company in the growing field of managing your pH balance.

I know that companies in the health field are in business to make money but, the truth is, you affect your pH every time you put something in your mouth. Why take ten different capsules to affect that when your real food is acid-forming?

If you want to eat acid forming foods, or non-foods, all day, then make sure to take the baking soda and lemon juice drink every night before bed so that you will be alkaline while you sleep, the most important time for your bones. That is half or one teaspoon of baking soda, juice of half a lemon and half a glass of water, it will fizz up. That will cost you a few pennies.

When you read some of the supplement companies sites you might wonder how you lived so long without their products. When I was really sick I bought all of that stuff. Anything that promised to make me well, I bought. At one point I was taking handfuls of pills 4 times a day; for detox, for pH, for blood sugar balance, for longevity, etc.etc. Probably half of them worked as promised, the rest were a total waste of money. I was spending between $250-400 a month. Once a weight vest customer asked me to list my supplements and I was too embarassed to do it.

Now I only take B12 once a week, D3, occasional cod liver oil when I remember. I feel healthier than I have in years and I certainly seem to be getting all I need from the raw fruit and greens that I am eating.

I’m not trying to talk anyone into the rawfood diet. I’m just saying that we probably have to take the supplement companies promises with a grain of salt. They are in it for the money. When I talked to the rep about the new green food she urged me to sell ALL their products. Then you could spend $250- a month all in one place  ;-)

I realized that the difference between me and them is that I want to get women OFF the stuff - drugs and supplements- and realizing that they hold their health in their minds and in their nutrition. Of course I’m not going to get rich from that but I really don’t care! Abundance is all in the mind, just like health.

On a personal note; I just finished a new stained glass piece that I’m really pleased with. I’ll put it on the about me page of the site so you can admire it :-)

Enjoy the rest of the Summer,

Pam
