The Alkaline Alchemist himself, Mohamed Makanjuola is on hand to talk
diet, plant based and keeping those levels at an optimum.
Imohotep, first quoted let food by thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food, which was then apparently famously quoted by Hippocrates.
How food is prepared, what you eat and how long you chew your food are equally important. For example, not a-lot of people consider that digestion begins in the mouth. This is where food is broken down and made ready for digestion. So, it makes sense that how we chew and how many times we chew matters. (Experts suggest we chew our food at least 26 times before we swallow). Most, if not all of us can remember our parents or grand parents telling us to chew our food well before we swallow. Makes you wonder how much they really knew and forgot at the same time. After all, they must have been told to chew their food well somewhere along the ancestral line.
The body is composed of multiple organs and each organ has its own ph level and ways of maintaining it i.e the ph levels in your mouth being the most alkalised along with your blood are regulated and supported by the kidneys and lungs. The balance of acidic or alkaline in the digestive system can impact how well food etc is processed and in turn affecting other systems for example, brain fog and lack of cognition after a heavy lunch. The blood and liquids that carry oxygen and/or carbon around the body work with the kidneys and lungs to maintain PH balance and optimum function, how we support this system goes back to what we consume.
The gut is known as the second brain. but in fact it is truly the first, until we nourish our first brain our second brain cannot even begin to function properly, which is why when we are hungry, our moods and behaviour change. We've all seen the snickers advertisement, you're not the same when you're hungry or as the younger generation calls it nowadays hangry. Suggesting anger sets in when we are hungry, proving all rational thoughts goes out the window and we grab the first thing that comes with convenience.
