The highest I got my pH was the other day–to 6.5. I drank a lot of green juice and lemon that day and not much else. I am now back to about 5.25, which is quite terrible and I am a bit down about it. I know it takes time to build up mineral stores and to get back on track, but I am feeling impatient about this and worried I am going to be unwell in the meantime.
I have also noticed cravings for chocolate and fatty things like tiramisu, even though eating those make me feel terrible. I think what I am craving is magnesium and calcium, and I am hoping to get those through juicing rather than from chocolate and tiramisu.
I am trying to figure out how to eat and maintain a good pH. I know that for my body, it is important to have a low glycemic load, which means minimal fruits, grains and beans. I also need to get enough, but not too much protein. My head is spinning a bit. There is a lot to fine-tune.
Juicing and making smoothies is rather fun and an easy way to get more veggies, but I am needing more warmth, though, and the coldness of the juice and smoothies is increasing my Vata and putting me out of balance. I am having trouble falling asleep and am having more anxiety and running thoughts in my head. I am irritable and do not feel grounded.
I will be trying some recipes for warm vegetable-based soups and dishes and seeing how those go.
In the meantime, I am waiting for my Colonix shipment to arrive so I can get started on my colon cleanse! Last time I did Colonix was about 7 years ago, and I lost 6 pounds of old fecal matter from my digestive tract. I am looking forward to losing some fecal matter again.
