Not only want to know the nutrients in a food, but also the acidity or alkalinity they contain, and cone this feature directly influences on weight and health. Therefore, to clarify this issue better than Gabriel Gavina, alternative therapist, to answer in an interview why we alkalizing diet.
In recent times, much is said about the acidity and alkalinity and its influence on the internal environment, health and the scourge of overweight. Who better to talk about these issues that Gabriel Gavina, alternative therapist student of the alkaline diet, which has agreed to an extensive interview that allowed us to explore all its properties and its impact on weight and health.
Acidity, alkalinity and its relation to obesity
What are the acidity and alkalinity?
-The Acidity and alkalinity speak of the concentration of hydronium ions [H3O +] present in certain substances or solutions. It is measured by the pH which is recognized by all physiological medical texts in the world scale.
Since our body is basically water, about 70% of body weight depending on the age, we can then measure the pH of our inner terrain.
The pH should have a balance (about 7.3 on a scale of 1 to 14 where 1 is the most acidic and 14 the most alkaline) and if you leave him, too acidic or too alkaline, creates a suitable ground for disease occurs.
Given the environmental conditions in which we move and lifestyle habits that we have acquired, especially in our food, there is a clear trend towards acidification in modern man.
What relationship exists in acidification and obesity?
-The Acidification of the inner field causes a major toxic load is stored in places away from vital organs. But it could be said that most of it is “saved” on the safest place, which is our fat, our fat tissue. It is therefore very difficult to lose weight without balance our pH. To lose weight we must alkalizing, and then the extraordinary wisdom of our “body system” will lead to ideal weight easily.
What are acidic foods that are part of the western diet?
As usually I tell my patients: “there are no good or bad foods, are all useful and nutritious (in its natural form and in moderate amount) depending on our needs at a given time.” Typically, we need to alkalize and for it is a good rule to avoid meat, eggs, fish, refined cereals, coffee, alcohol, sugar, sweeteners, fried foods, sweets, prepared, packaged …

Baking soda, a powerful alkalizing
What properties have the bicarbonate in the body?
-The Bicarbonate has a pH of 14 is therefore a powerful alkalizing and should be used with caution. It is advisable to talk to your therapist before use. To give us an idea of the potential of bicarbonate should know that Matt Otto Warbourg taught us that the primary cause of cancer is lack of oxygen at the cellular level and an interior terrain acid. There is today an Italian oncologist named Tulio Simonccini treating cancer with sodium bicarbonate exclusively for their alkalizing capacity with extraordinary results.
Benefits of alkaline diet for other problems unrelated to weight
What other diseases can try the alkaline diet?
-A Alkaline diet is capable of treating any pathology caused by excessive interior acidosis ground. That is, almost any disease called “civilization”. For example: fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, urinary tract infections, candidiasis, arthritis, rheumatism, osteoporosis, etc. Which they are nothing more than that allopathic medicine symptoms label names. These symptoms do not make it “scream” … I’m acid, help me!
For the results to be significant and rapid alkaline diet it should be supported by other holistic techniques to clean the vital organs such as the liver, lymph etc., clean digestion with empowerment strategies immune system, stress reduction, “working” emotions and improved overall hydration.

How should be the alkaline diet to lose weight?
An alkaline diet to lose weight does not differ actually an alkaline diet to regain health, because it is based on a drastic increase in the proportion of the most alkalizing foods such as green leafy vegetables. These have a lot of chlorophyll, enzymes, phytonutrients and a big load of minerals that are the real source of long-term alkalinization.
What are alkaline foods that should not be missed in the alkaline diet?
We should emphasize spinach, cabbage, lamb’s lettuce, arugula, lettuce, celery, endive, broccoli, cabbage, alfalfa sprouts, bean sprouts, kelp, wakame and try to eat them without “breaking”. For example, when you cook spinach, which only reaches the point where he takes the hardness without losing virtually nutrients. That happens a few seconds of “bathe” with hot water. I said “bathe” and not “cooking”. If you cook broccoli, you should stop cooking at the time has softened and has rekindled the green; and not to the point of turning it into a puree of an “old green” color. You must find that point where you can eat half cooked without losing nutrition (micronutrients such as enzymes, vitamins and phytonutrients).
-The Dairy foods are controversial. For some scientists are foods that promote weight loss, while others are foods that not only thin, but that harm health. Do you, do you think of them?
As I said, there is no good or bad foods in their natural form and in adequate amounts. That said, the dairy that come to our homes have several problems that make it an inadvisable food.
It is pasteurized, ie they have washed their enzyme potential, have become a dead food.
It contains a protein called Casein very difficult to process for human digestion. It is designed to grow an animal hundred kilos in a few months.
Ralgro contains anabolics like the animal to grow faster than nature has predisposed. And that product reaches the consumer through milk.
It contains antibiotics which are administered to cows to prevent infectious diseases. We also comes through milk.
If consumed unpasteurized milk without pollution of allopathic medicines, still it should be consumed in small quantities and not more than 1 or 2 times a week. It should be a complement to the usual diet, as well as other animal products.
What properties have sea salt? Does it provoke fluid retention as table salt?
-The Sea salt “unrefined” contains electric charge and a lot of other much needed minerals for all our physiological processes. The refined sea salt is a lower quality, and table salt is sodium chloride alone. Fluid retention occurs because the body is acid. The retained water “dissolves” the problem temporarily. Until you understand the problem and balance your pH alkalizing. Unrefined sea salt will help alkalize.
What is alkaline water?
-the Water is alkaline water charged with negative ions more than usual for it has a pH greater than 7 and thereby creates a “cluster” of molecules called smaller clusters. What it gives an alkalizing and moisturizing much higher than ordinary bottled water.
Detox diets: Are they healthy?
What is the importance of detoxify the body to lose weight?
-Desintoxicar The body is an essential step to balance the pH. Detoxify waste removed from its body that cause acid remains, ie its pH out of balance. As I said, balance the pH will naturally and almost inadvertently reach your ideal weight healthily. In addition, if you keep the pH balanced maintain your ideal weight long term. That is what we really want.
What is your opinion about fast and restrictive fad diets?
-Some Of fast diets are often effective because there is a change in how often food is eaten and the type of food you eat. This creates a sequence of stimuli, say those who sell magic diet, “accelerate” your metabolism. The truth is that only the “wave”.
The problem is that they do it for a short period of time and insufficiently. the root problem is not addressed holistically, alkalizing pH balance. We must help the diet with the techniques mentioned above as detoxification cleansing our internal organs such as the liver, lymph, colon etc. which in turn help balance the pH, the real objective to recover their ideal weight.
Where were you can find on the internet?
‘You can find my work on my blog Muybio.com. In addition, online courses give any doubts that may arise from the alkaline diet.
As you can see food influence our body in different ways, not only in calories, fat or sugar affects weight gain; but also its alkalinity or acidity. Interesting to think, right ?.
