Acidic versus Alkaline: Need to Maintain pH Balance


Oxygen deficiency results in an ACIDIC state in the body, which is an open invitation to cancerous growth, as cancer cells are anaerobic and can survive without oxygen. A pH balance is a must to ensure that the body remains free from cancerous growth. 


The body must balance the pH level at a slightly higher ALKALINE level. Acid-forming foods, including PROCESSED foods and sugars, cause an imbalance in the body's pH level, making it more acidic than alkaline, which is harmful and can cause serious diseases, such as CANCER, diabetes, osteoporosis, and accelerate the process of degeneration and aging. A body with high acidic levels is a breeding ground for candida overgrowth and yeast, bad bacteria problems

It is therefore important that your everyday diet contains alkaline foods that will keep the alkaline level slightly higher than the body's acidic level.  Most health problems start in a body, which is acidic. 

While most people with acidity problems have become habitual to use antacids, which have too many side effects, there are alternative remedies that might help in such acidic conditions.

Apple cider vinegar/ fresh lemon juice (2tbsp) and baking soda (1/3 tbsp) are known to be effective in treating acidity. Mix both and fizzing will start, continue to stir until fizz stops and then fill the glass with water. Drink it immediately to get instant relief from acidity.

Here's an alkaline drink recipe shared by a fried Robb S. Smith, who is an alternative healer himself:

Alkaline water – RECIPE
Ingredients:
1 tbs. of Himalayan salt
1 organic lemon
2 liters of purified water (it’s recommended to have an osmosis filter)
1 big glass jar (plastic jar has chemicals and impurities that are acidic to the human body)
Directions:

First, you need to pour the water in the glass jar. Then, cut the lemon I slices and add it inside the water. At last, add the Himalayan salt. Now, close the glass jar and leave it on room temperature for 12 – 24 hours.


Alkaline foods:

Vegetables: Cucumber, peas, spinach, pepper, lettuce, kale, garlic, onions, beets, broccoli, celery, cauliflower
Fruits: Citrus fruits, orange, berries, grapes, apple, melon, banana, lemon, pear, peach, watermelon
Protein: Tofu, almonds, Chestnut

Spices: Curry, cinnamon, sea salt, mustard, ginger

Remember, most of us are under the notion that citrus fruits have an acidifying effect on the body, but the reality is opposite. The citric acid content in such foods actually has an alkalinizing effect in the body.

Eggless Cake Without Raising Agents: A No Baking Powder, No Baking Soda Sponge Cake Recipe

When you are able to bake an eggless cake without raising agents, your happiness knows no bounds, right? This is exactly what I am in for today. What started as an experiment has worked out wonders for me.


I was trying to hone my cake baking skills while learning a few baking basics. Then struck this idea of baking a cake without baking powder or baking soda. A loved one is suffering from histamine sensitivity, and these chemical agents trigger urticaria, which gives me goosebumps. So I decided to go the other way round - baking an eggless cake without raising agents.

You need a light flour here - something that would effectively replace maida/all-purpose flour/refined flour/white flour. I remember one dhaba wala telling me once about how they replace maida sometimes - using a mix of jau and rice flour.

So this is exactly what I needed. This has given me one of the simplest yet tastiest cakes. Please do not change the flours, as I am unsure how any other flour would work here. I will…
