A good acid-base balance
With chronic inflammation, acidity is the other big enemy of the joints.
It causes oxidation in the body, a phenomenon that “rust” our organs.
And the joints are a privileged target.
To find out if your body is too acidic, buy drug test strips that change color depending on the pH of the urine.
If it is less than 6.5, acidity alert!
All the foods we consume on a daily basis are acidic, except for fruits and vegetables, which are “basifying” thanks to potassium.
Ideal for achieving a good acid-base balance: 70% of fruits and vegetables, 30% being reserved for everything else.
One piece of advice to reach this goal: share your plate in two, one half for vegetables, raw vegetables, the other half for meat, starchy foods and cheese.
