Back To The Basics – Yin And Yang Groceries

It is very important to listen to your body’s needs.  So, for example, if you need some water u will take it or if you feel exhausted u will take some vitamins. But what I suggest to you is that you need to take enough water,  more fruits and vegetables as well as natural juices, because it is primarily basic food!

It is necessary to harmonize the balance in the body and it is recommended that the daily intake is at least 60% of the basic foods in order to neutralize the acidity in the organism.

Rights basic nutrition means nutrition of fruitage as they are in the nature.

All the groceries that we take to ourselves changing the pH value of our blood. Our body tends to be in equilibrium and for this it is necessary that the blood is slightly basic.Different groceries have a different pH values and affect the level of alkalinity or acidity in the body.If we introduced too many acidic foods the body is unable to neutralize them, and they are deposited as a hazardous waste and pollute the body.

There are tables where you can exactly determine which food is acidic and which are base, and that on the basis of them you can establish a balance. What is important is that if you eat acidic foodstuffs, you must ensure that in nutrition you introduce groceries that your body will lead to the necessary balance.
