If at least one of our numerous bodily systems goes out of order, the whole body will soon get sick, age quickly, and eventually stop working.
So let’s talk about the life-carrying fluid called blood.
The health of your blood is vital for life and the maintenance of a strong immune system:
¬ blood supplies oxygen to the body’s cells,
¬ blood transports hormones and nutrients,
¬ blood neutralizes toxic waste,
¬ blood and lymph carry toxic substances taken in by food and the natural wastes of the body,
¬ lymphatic vessels drain waste products from tissues.
Blood quality must be healthy for the lymphatic system to filter toxins out adequately. The acid and alkaline quality of the blood should always be balanced. The pH factor ranges from a scale of pH-1 to pH- 12. A pH of less then 7 is acid and more than 7 is alkaline. Healthy blood should be slightly alkaline, between a pH of 7.3 and 7.45.
Many health conditions develop from an over-acid blood pH resulting from accumulated toxins in the blood. Most of these toxins are acids formed by the natural; wastes of the body and the foods we eat, and are normally eliminated when the body’s organs are functioning properly.
However, when a poor diet consisting of excess sugar, white flour, fatty foods, caffeine, alcohol and chemical food additives and preservatives is consumed, the bloodstream can become congested with toxins, fat, cholesterol and mucus that accumulates in the organs. This may lead to further deterioration of the blood quality and negatively affect the lymphatic system. An abnormal level of acidity in the blood causes a condition known as acidosis. Acidosis can create an unhealthy internal environment that leaves the body’s health vulnerable.
There are several ways to cleanse the blood, from simple to quite elaborate and complicated.
Here’s one I personally like (simple):
Prepare 2 liters of fresh carrot, beet, cucumber juice (in 6:1:3 proportion) and drink it throughout the day. This juice removes blood stagnation, improves the quality of the blood, and nourishes all the cells in your body. Have this juice daily for at least a week.
Drinking lots of vegetable juices along with eating a diet high in raw foods is one of the best things you can do to keep you blood and lymph systems working perfectly and to maintain your body in perfect health.
