Discover Ways to Optimize the Digestive System
The human body has many parts, but the many parts make up one whole body. The building blocks of a healthy body is building up each and every one of our cells.
What are you building your body up with today? A rock solid foundation built with nourishing foods or a weak foundation built with processed junk.
3 ways to Build a Healthy Home and Body
#1: Nourish the cells inside and out.
#2: Support and Balance each system.
#3: Maintain with wellness strategies.
Let’s talk pH
We want the stomach to be acidic, but not the cells. Acidity in the cells- means less oxygen. alkalinity in the cells– means more oxygen. When we nourish our bodies our diet should include 60% alkaline forming foods and 40% acid-forming foods. If your body is already acidic you may need more like 80% alkaline forming foods and 20% acid-forming foods.
Citrus fruits have some of the most alkalizing effects on the digestive system even though they are very acidic before digestion. Whereas meat is very alkalizing before digestion, but very acidic after digestion.
Great resource to learn more about acid and alkaline forming foods is Nutrition 101: Choose Life!

Water: Water is necessary for health. Water helps deliver nutrients to every cell in the body. It is very important in the digestive system for breaking down nutrients into smaller particles. Water in the colon helps move along waste too.
