To make the body more alkaline, there are a lot of things to change, especially in the lifestyle. But most people fail to accomplish the dietary plans it is, perhaps, because of too much requirements in lifestyle change.
If you aim to succeed in changing your lifestyle in a long term basis, you should use the simpler and easier techniques as these are most effective most of the time.
One of these simple techniques is to drink lemon water throughout the day. Just by using fresh cut lemons and water as your water therapy will surely make your bloodstream and system alkaline. Since this is quite a simple technique, you can do it every day. But you can also go for a full Master Cleanse Diet if you want to attain maximum benefit from this detoxification and cleansing process.
The main ingredients of the Master Cleanse Diet for your detoxification are lemon juice, raw maple syrup, and cayenne pepper.
The lemon is naturally rich in acid but it is also rich in minerals that are very helpful in alkalizing the body, especially after it has been digested. The juice neutralizes and wards off the free radicals and toxins to clean the blood as the juice contains diuretic and diarrheic effects keeping away all the wastes and toxins from the body.
Drinking lemon water is as easy as cutting a small piece of a lemon and putting it into a glass of water anytime of the day in your home. If you are going out, to the office or somewhere else, you can also bring a lemon anywhere. It does not only taste good, it also helps your body to detoxify, especially after eating heavy meal. Just make sure to add not any sweetener or sugar to avoid making it acidic.
Drinking this lemon water everyday will help improve your metabolism for a healthier and more alkaline body. And with an improved metabolism, losing weight will never be a problem for you anymore.
But although this simple process is very good for the health, this can also harm those people who have an acidic digestion tract problem, such as ulcerative colitis. They should avoid taking lemon and other citrus fruits because of its citric acid content because it stirs up excessive acids in their digestive system. What they should try is the vegetable juice cleansing diet which also helps the body to gently detoxify the excessive acids and toxins. After this, they can drink lemon juice or water.
There is also a simpler and much easier way to achieve detoxification, and that is to have your own alkaline water ionizer at home. You can alter your choice of drinks, from soda, tea, coffee, or any other drinks to alkaline water, starting from the time you wake up to the time you are going to bed. Your body will be hydrated and detoxified.
