Maintaining a proper pH balance in your body can be crucial to preventing disease and maintaining good health in Woodlawn.  The body\'s pH balance refers to the acidity or alkalinity in your body.  The normal pH in your blood should be slightly alkaline in order for you to stay healthy.  The lifestyles many of us lead tend to increase the acidity the body and therefore make way for disease and less than terrific health.  Stress and poor diet or an acidic diet can tip the pH balance of the body from alkaline, past neutral into the acidic zone.  Here at Barrett Family Chiropractic in Woodlawn, Maryland we strive to help our patients not only achieve good musculoskeletal and neurological health but we help them reach overall optimal health.  Here are a few foods that may help tip your pH balance into the proper range.

  • Spinach-Spinach is a dark green leafy vegetable that helps eliminate free radicals and it is rich in antioxidants.  This means that it helps to get rid of some cancer causing molecules in the body and bring out the damaging molecules.  Spinach is very high in vitamins C, A, K and B6 as well as magnesium, potassium, calcium, zinc, iron and niacin.  These can help stimulate brain function, improve memory, support the heart muscle and it helps lower cholesterol levels.  That\'s a pretty good bang for your buck!
  • Lemons-Lemons can be added to many dishes, used as salad dressing (try some on your spinach salad) and is a great additive to your water or tea.  Lemons are packed with vitamins and they are a simple way to improve your pH balance.  Lemons help reduce the risk of stroke and they help to treat kidney stones.  Using them in your diet helps to fight cancer cells, prevents constipation and helps to maintain a healthy blood pressure.  Next time you think about putting sugar in your iced tea try some lemon instead.
  • Quinoa-Quinoa is a grain which offers so much more to our bodies then the wheat grain that most of us consume on a daily basis.  Quinoa contains a large amount of protein compared to any other grain and it contains twice the amount of fiber.  It is rich in manganese, magnesium, riboflavin, lysine and iron.  What does all of this mean?  IT\'S GOOD FOR YOU!!  Among other benefits it helps maintain proper blood sugar levels and it helps to reduce high cholesterol.  Not sure you\'ll like it?  Try it in soups.  I bet you\'ll end up using it as a regular side dish in no time.
