As discussed in the previous blog on January 1, 2019, we should have atleast 80% of Alkaline Foods and 20% Acidic Foods.
The food may be Acidic outside; for example a Lemon or any citric food like Orange or Sweet Lime. However, what matters is the ash that they produce on digestion. The ash that these fruits produce is Alkaline, hence highly beneficial for our Health. So, how to identify which foods are Alkaline in Nature?
Let us remember, most Fruits and Vegetables are alkaline in nature. Grains, Pulses, Nuts and Non - Vegetarian foods are highly acidic in nature.
Therefore, our diet should consist of 80% Fruits and Vegetables (a variety - atleast 40% in raw form and 40% in cooked form) and 20% of the rest.
When we follow this pattern, we would keep our body free of diseases with increased immunity as well. As we belong to Nature, hence if we follow the principle of nature, we would definitely have much better health. We will take this topic soon on March 1, 2019
Till then have a Healthy Time Ahead

Too much protein can raise the risk for osteoporosis and kidney stones . . That's because high-protein diets cause calcium to slip through the kidneys, into the urinary tract. In people with poor kidney function - often the result of urinary infections, diabetes, or high blood pressure - high-protein diets also tend to accelerate the loss of kidney function Kidneys filter and remove the waste product and toxins from our body like Urea and Creatinine. These are waste products produced during Protein Metabolism. If amount of protein is high, these waste products produced will be high in quantity, causing pressure on Kidney to Filter and eventually cause loss in kidney functioning More amount of protein taken, more hydrochloric acid will be released as protein metabolism takes place with the help of enzyme pepsin and hydrochloric acid.

Myth: It's Essential to Drink Eight Glasses of Water a Day Eight glasses a day? It is just modern theory (why 8, why not 7 or 9).
