Your Body’s PH and YOU

Craving more meat and animal protein in the colder weather? You’re not alone. Many people do this time of year. And yet venturing too far down that path may not be the best for your health for many reasons. Excessive meat consumption has been linked to higher cancer rates, heart disease, and digestive disorders. Meat takes longer than most foods to digest, and has a longer transit time in your digestive system than plant-based foods, like vegetables, fruits or seeds. And then there’s the pH theory of nutrition. Animal proteins create an acidic environment in your body as they are digested, and your body neutralizes in order to maintain the slightly alkaline environment it prefers. Because your body likes to be slightly alkaline, if you eat too many foods that are acidic, it will scramble to return itself to the right pH balance. Your pH is the number that measures how acidic or alkaline something is (A pH of 7 is neutral). Maintaining a proper pH is important for digestion, energy, clear skin, and your overall well being. It’s surprisingly easy to re-balance, however, so don’t despair. If you’ve been splurging this season, try to incorporate the following alkaline foods…

what you can learn from cancer patients

  One of my good friends asked the other day, over tea, why my new website doesn’t talk more about Cancer? How can nutrition and food be stylish and fun, when I work with so many critical patients? She glanced up at me, over her berry breakfast, and wondered why I don’t talk more about illness and sickness, and the sadness that I must meet each day? And she inquired gently, what about your Cancer patients? I partner with one of the top Breast Cancer centers in the Washington, DC area. They refer their patients to me, women who have just been diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Women who are often reeling, still, from their news. My friend was curious. I understood why. If you haven’t dealt with Cancer, or a serious illness, you might wonder too. Maybe you assume that nutrition coaching or analyzing one’s diet and food is for vain women who want to look good. It’s all about being skinny, after all. Isn’t it? Not in my world. It’s about feeling great. It’s about reducing inflammation; aches, pains, sinus, infertility, migraines, auto-immune issues, and even the big C. Cancer. It’s about the energy and awesomeness that you feel…
