Facts: Humans are made to be gatherers and hunters meaning we were made to MOVE! We do not move anymore. Food, I mean toxic/chemically processed GMO food is everywhere and too available.We sit on the computer at work, school, and home. We watch too much reality television. Our kids are addicted to electronic media components. Our hormones are so unbalanced from the consumption of chemical killing food. We do not sleep well and we end up with all kinds of serious disease and chronic illnesses.
Danger: SUGAR KILLS!
More facts and concerns: 25 million Americans are diabetics. 79 million are pre-diabetic.

Do you feel sluggish and tired often. Check your acidity level. Its easy and very important.I test my clients often and can tell who is blue as the ocean and who is yellow like dry grass. Drinking coffee tea, alcohol, any food that is a high acid (junk foods, processed fast foods, fatty foods, carbs, cheese, tomatoes, including sauces, cottage cheese), can really do the body and teeth bad. Take the strip test.
The acidity level of your mouth is an indicator of the trouble and expense you may have at your dentist's office. Acidity or alkalinity is measured on a scale from 1 to 14 called pH. A pH of 7 is neutral, neither acidic or alkaline. Lower than 7 is more acidic, while higher numbers indicate something more alkaline.
The pH of your mouth can easily be measured by using "litmus" paper. Litmus is a coloring material that turns red in acid solutions and blue in alkaline solutions. Litmus paper can be found in drugstores for under $15.00. You just tear off a little piece of the paper, slip it into your mouth, and use the color code on the container to see what the pH of your mouth is. If you get litmus paper specific for saliva and urine, the colors are easier to differentiate.
At a neutral pH of 7.0, no damage is being done to the teeth. Between a pH of 5.5 and 6.0, acid in the mouth can begin to destroy the roots of the teeth. If the pH drops below 5.5, the acidity starts to dissolve the minerals in the enamel covering the teeth and the tooth structure itself. The longer the pH remains lower than 5.5, the more damage will be done by the acid.
Sugar and a high volume of carbohydrate and factory-processed foods cause a mouth to become acidic. People who sip soft drinks or sweetened coffee throughout the day or who eat many small carbohydrate snacks will have an acidic mouth for most of the day.
Bacteria thrive in an acid mouth and multiply with sugar. The more poor quality food you eat, the more bacteria will grow. Bacteria create plaque and can destroy your gums and teeth.
HEALTH TIP #2:
There are several types of pH balance waters in the health food markets that can help your pH levels. Eating more greens will get your levels in the ocean blue zone and your health should improve.
HEALTH TIP #3:
Want to shred fat off the body? Want to rid the health conditions and diseases, eliminate the toxic medications and renew your body for the better. Want to help save the earth? Want to be a better human being and have mercy on innocent animals? Try and stop eating all animal products. Try to not eat any meat for a month. Most people do not have the will power or strength to say NO!
But if you knew that harm you are causing to yourself, your family, and the earth you live in, I promise, you would think twice. Ask yourself, would you eat something in the dark if were not told what you were putting in your mouth, your body? I think not!
If you cannot live without animal products try to use only grass fed, organic, cage free, and non animal cruelty farm products. Even though organic and cage free are just as abusive toward animals.
Say NO to factory farming and animal cruelty!
Stick to a animal free diet and follow it without cheating. Fat will fall and muscle will start to show in a lean manner . You will feel healthier and your health conditions will improve.
Health Tip 4#
Add a fitness routine by walking, jogging, weights, stretch and abs. Start slow if you never worked out before, add light weights consult your Dr. and if you have health issues, talk to your Dr. about this diet and a fitness workout plan. It will help you with your health conditions especially if you are over weight, diabetic, insulin resistance, hypothyroid condition, high blood pressure, high cholesterol.
Once you start to shed the weight you should have less back and knee pains, sleep better and your confidence will rise. You will feel great. But stick to it do not cheat yourself until Sunday!
Try eating 7 meals a day consisting of: Ban red meat in your diet! No sugars, oils, complex carbs allowed. No pasta, bread, desserts, juices, junk food snacks, cheese, alcohol again until Sunday!
Turkey sausage, spinach, one whole free range/ organic egg with 3 egg whites. Add brown beans or black

Always add protein like fish, lean white natural/organic chicken, turkey, and egg whites.
Add brown or black beans to each meal. Use organic and if in cans use no salt or rinse the beans free of salt. This is only of you are in a hurry otherwise I suggest to make your own beans.

artichokes/ asparagus and spinach.
Can add or mix the carb veggies as above: broccoli, cauliflower, beans.

You can pre-steam veggies, pre-cook sausages, chicken, turkey patties, keep in frig for the next day and pack to go anytime.
If you are a vegetarian this is up your alley with out the meats.
HEALTH TIP #5:
Olive oil is good for the heart:
Extra virgin olive oil that is. Antioxidant protection for our blood vessels, and olive oil has been shown to lower the risk of lipid peroxidation
(oxygen damage to fat) in our bloodstream, Many of the fat- containing molecules in our blood including molecules like LDL- need to be protected form oxygen damage. We do not wan tot see our blood cells with too much clumping together of blood cells called platelets.
HEALTH TIP #6:
Feel lighter and shed pounds by snacking or adding as a meal:
Strawberries when hungry. Organic is clean from harmful pesticides and added chemicals. You will become less hungry fast and get your vitamin C and minerals.
