Alcaline Health Week | April 20-26

Food is metabolised differently in our bodies, some foods are acid-forming and others are alkalising. In general, we eat too much acid forming food - such as meat, dairy products, cereals, coffee, sugar, alcohol and processed foods. This leads to acid being stored in the joints, body and tissues, and when the body tries to neutralise these, alkaline substances are pulled out of the organism - mainly calcium stored in bones, joints and blood vessels. A constant excess of acid can eventually lead to a thinning of the bones and calcium being stored in the tissue instead, causing various problems.

Symptoms of an acidified body can be:
Indigestion, joint pain, intestinal disorders, liver disease, gallstones, fatigue, anger, irritability, high blood pressure, muscle stiffness, candida, depression, poor eyesight, brittle bones, obesity, asthma, colds, etc. ..

Scientific research has been made regarding how cells and bodies behave in acidic environments, where it has been seen how people with diabetes have improved or even completely recovered, cancer patients have made ​​tremendous progress, and obese individuals have plummeted in weight by changing to an alkaline diet.

During "Alcaline Health Week" we will eat and drink alkalising foods, based on raw vegetables and fruit. This is an opportunity for the body to eliminate acids and toxins, and regain vitality and health. Relaxation, hikes through the beautiful Bergslagen nature, exercises and lectures on nutrition and health are included in the program.
