This is a Great article by Drew Canole on an alkaline lifestyle
Believe it or not but our bodies are packed with harmful toxins, like
heavy metals, pollutants in the air, and pesticides and chemicals.
According to many researchers the incidence of various cancers and
diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s are linked to these harmful
But don’t worry, there’s things that you can do to limit your risk.
Here are some tips on how to detox your body from these toxins.
1. Alkaline Lifestyle
For your body to function properly or in homeostasis, systems in your
body need to be functioning at a steady state – this is usually at an
The alkaline lifestyle consists of eating clean and keeping your
body’s pH level where it needs to be (neutral pH). Drinking fresh
vegetable juice, eating dark green leafy greens and keeping hydrated are
some of things that you can do to keep your body at an alkaline state.
When your body is at an alkalizing state and you’re nourishing it
with foods that are healthy, your body’s pH is neutral. It’s not acidic
and it’s not basic, it’s the right pH (around 7 in a 0 -14 scale). And
when the pH of your body is aligned with the foods you eat then you feel
and look healthy.
Processed foods are usually more acidic than naturally produced
foods. The pH of blood is around 7.30 – 7.45. When you eat more
naturally produced foods and avoid acidic foods your blood is more
likely to stay in the right pH zone which is beneficial for your overall

2. Go Organic
When you’re trying to prevent disease and eliminate toxins from your body, you shouldn’t be eating foods that are covered with chemicals
and pesticides. Juicing inorganic fruits and vegetables is not good as
well. The juice is instantly absorbed and when you juice non-organic
fruits and vegetables, the pesticides and chemicals gets quickly
absorbed by your body.

3. Add Chlorophyll
Chlorophyll is amazing. Chlorophyll is more than just a phytonutrient
that’s responsible for the dark green pigment in green foods.
Chlorophyll is one of the best things for the body and you can get it in
many ways. Juicing dark green leafy vegetables is a great way to get chlorophyll into your body. When you juice fresh vegetables, your body quickly absorbs the nutrients and you get amazing results. Another way you can get your dose of chlorophyll is through liquid chlorophyll.
Chlorophyll is packed with antioxidants. Antioxidants protect our
cells from oxidative damage and free radicals. Chlorophyll also
increases red blood cell formation and improves the body’s overall
circulation. When you consume dark leafy vegetables you decrease your
risk of cancer. Besides all these benefits chlorophyll helps with bad

Vegetables with highest chlorophyll are those that are dark green.
4. Juice Cilantro
Cilantro is one of my favorite herbs. Cilantro is great for
detoxifying the body because it removes heavy metals (mercury, aluminum,
and lead) from the body and the best part is that organic cilantro is inexpensive. So you have no excuse as to why you shouldn’t juice cilantro.
The compounds that are found in cilantro bind to toxic metals and loosen them from tissues.
Researcher and Doctor Yoshiaki Omura found that individuals who
consumed a Vietnamese soup with large amounts of cilantro had a higher
levels of mercury in their urine. He followed by giving cilantro to
patients with high mercury levels and found that cilantro actually
eliminated mercury from the body.

Juicing itself is a detox process.
1. Many people ask me why they should juice when they could eat the
vegetables or fruits. When you extract the juice from the vegetable all
you are left with are beneficial micronutrients. Since your body doesn’t
have to break down any components like insoluble fiber, your body is
quickly absorbing micronutrients, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and
much more from the juice. That’s why often you get instant energy after
having a juice!
2. Juicing also allows you to consume the needed vegetables and
fruits that your body craves and needs for optimal health. If you find
it difficult eating raw vegetables and fruit, then juicing is perfect
for you. With juicing you are also getting a wide variety of different
vegetables into your daily intake.
3. Juicing is a way to change the way you eat and will change the way
you live. After you juice for a week, you will see and feel instant
results. Often after the first week of the Alpha Reset,
my clients tell me how much more energy they have, how their skin has
improved and how much overall mental clarity they have. Also, a juice
detox program like the Alpha Reset, can help you change your taste buds and quit bad habits like smoking.
