What Causes Acidic Body, Faster Aging and Premature Death?

About 30 years ago we learned about how certain foods eaten together in a meal will cause many negative health issues. Overtime, eating certain foods together will eventually kill us way before our time should be up, or at the very least, bring on all kinds of health issues and disease early on in our life. We know with complete surety that eating improperly combined foods causes an acidic and sickly body because we have experienced it in our own bodies.  Plus lack of energy!

But how could a couple of nobodies like Frank and me know anything about health? Because we stopped listening to doctors and started listening to what our bodies were telling us instead! Anyone can become their own doctor but it takes conviction; it takes giving up some of the foods you love to eat together; it takes resolve and it takes the willingness to take control of what you eat rather than it take control of you! And that’s all. No doctors, no surgery, no medical insurance and no high medical bills! Sounds good, uh? 

The best asset we can give ourselves is to learn to listen to our body. Our body tells us that what we are eating is good or bad by certain tell-tell signs. And if you know anything about health then you know that acidic condition accumulating for years is what causes cancer and disease! What we need is an alkaline body but unfortunately that will never happen as long as certain foods are eaten together.

When certain foods are eaten together in a meal sitting they do not digest in the stomach properly.  If food we eat is not digesting properly then what’s happening to it? To put it bluntly, it is rotting in our intestines causing stinky flatulence, bloating, acid reflux, weight gain, cramping, loss of energy and constipation, and if eating like this continues, colon issues and cancer come next. **Our intent is to inform, as usual, not to engage in fear mongering.**

When our organs, namely our digestive system has to work double time just trying to digest certain foods we eat, it ages our bodies at a much faster rate.

Question: Have you ever had acid stomach/reflux after eating a meal? Having acid reflux too often is a dangerous condition that can burn the esophagus because of all the acidic indigestible matter sitting in our intestines for hours that is simply unable to assimilate!

Question: And after eating that meal that gave you acid reflux, the next morning you are constipated, right?  Constipation leads to many negative health ailments and overtime being constipated a lot is why we get toxic, sick and diseased. No one is laughing here; this is serious business.

When the body becomes too toxic we get sick with allergies, glucose issues, arthritis, chronic pain, IBS syndrome, clogged arteries, high blood pressure and cholesterol, food intolerances, organs begin to fail, you name it. Many of us think we have gluten intolerance but what we really have is acidic/toxic body that is having a difficult time assimilating and tolerating a lot of foods...the symptoms are there, we're not denying that...somethings wrong in the digestive tract, that's for sure.

So how can being constipated effect the way our skin looks? When we don’t eliminate properly, our bodies take a beating and we get blotchy, dry or oily, itchy, pimply, rugged looking skin because the pores are not allowed to breathe—instead they are clogged up with toxins that are building up from not having proper bowel movements.

Toxins need to come out and if we are not defecating properly then they remain in our body, caking up our intestines.  Do you know what caked up intestines means? It’s not good. That means we aren’t absorbing the vitamins from the food we are eating, efficiently through our intestines into our blood which means we are depriving our body of vital nutrition our body needs for good health.  Sadly, that’s why many of us our in poor health.

If we’ve eaten an unhealthy diet for most of our life, our digestion system becomes overworked trying to figure out what it is going to do with the putrefied stuff that can’t come out, and then we don’t sleep properly; in the later stages of bowel illness, we might wake up feeling heavy, crampy, and acidic with heart burn or acid reflux and it can be a scary feeling. This happens because we have indigestible matter in our intestines and it’s making us ill.

Our bodies are created VERY intricately, meaning no matter what anyone says, it’s easy to see that we did not evolve from clams; God created us to eat, digest and absorb and defecate, and in that order, all before the cycle begins again.  However, most people eat, and if the food is improperly combined or unhealthy it muddles up the cycle and the digestion and absorption does not work properly, so when it is time to defecate very little comes out. But what about all the food you ate? Where does it go? Good question!  Anyone say t-o-x-i-c buildup?

Constipated folks are almost always overweight, or at the very least they carry a spare tire or two, or three.  A spare tire is an orange flag, letting us know that unless we, 1. Cleanse out the toxins, 2. Change an unhealthy diet to a healthy one, and 3. Properly combine our food groups, the orange flag will eventually turn into a red flag which is the danger zone.

In the early stages we may simply wake up feeling tired, constipated, crampy, lack of energy, and ready to take a nap. The whole day is ruined because we did not wake up feeling refreshed and ready to start the day. This shows in our face because improper eating speeds up the aging process and causes dry, blotchy, pimply skin and not to mention those dreaded premature wrinkles.

What are you going to do?

We know what we have done and those few simple lifestyle changes have given us our energy, contentment, and life back. And now we’re enjoying traveling abroad feeling great. Of course, its not one hundred percent about eating a healthy diet and cleansing; there's a bit more to it than that and that's why we wrote Better Health, Better Life and it's practically a give-a way at $6.99!

Don’t let something as simple as eating improperly combined foods take you down. Take control of your health today and feel one hundred percent better. You will be so glad that you finally humbled yourself to read this important information written by a couple of nobodies that you might even thank us in the end.
