3. Drink a glass or two of 1-2 tablespoons of organic apple cider vinegar into filtered, distilled or purified alkalized water.
4. Drink plenty of water every day (preferably alkalized water) to flush your system of waste, and keep organs functioning properly.
Experts recommend consuming 50 percent of your weight in water (in ounces) daily. For example, if you weigh 120 pounds, you should drink 60 ounces of water – if you’re at 200 pounds, your body needs 100 ounces of water every day.
5. Consume more vegetables.
All vegetables are alkalizing, so one of the best ways to achieve a more alkalized body is to eat more vegetables (only organic, of course). Your goal should be to consume them in the least processed form, such as raw or steamed. Deep-fried veggies, or things like carrot cake, don’t count. Fresh vegetable juice, on the other hand, is excellent, which means, if you don’t have one already, you may want to invest in a juicer – it’s a great way to get more veggies into your diet.
While all vegetables are alkalizing, some are particularly highly rated, including all types of seaweed, greens like kale, spinach, and watercress. Greens are among the best sources of alkaline minerals, like calcium. Cucumber and celery also help to quickly neutralize acid and aid in digestion.
6. Add as many meat-and poultry-free days to your week as possible, or even better, cut out meat altogether.
The food groups shown to have the most acidifying effect on the body are primarily animal-based, with meat the most acid forming of all. Fish and other seafood are slightly better, though still quite acidifying.
