Barley Gold Alkalizing Flush21.08.2012
by Life Enthusiast Staff
Why being Alkaline is so important…
In North America, the elevated consumption acidic foods and negative lifestyles (also very acidic) are very common. These various components will result in an unbalanced pH, creating an acidic environment. When the body is acidic, it can suffer severe and prolonged damage which may go undetected for years and can ultimately lead to disease.
Since our bodies are only able to assimilate minerals and nutrients properly when the pH is balanced, the 2 week Barley Gold Alkalizing Flush is a great way to ensure you are flooding your body with highly digestible, alkalizing nutrients and minerals. In doing so, it has shown to help with the healing of your organs, targeting the cleansing and healing of the intestine. Along with feeling energized, more aware, there is shedding several pounds of toxic, fecal matter, and inches of fat.
This Flush is best done with the help of your Herbalist, Natural Path, or in the care of your Medical Doctor. If you are going to get the help of a professional, start off with getting your meridians, blood work, blood pressure or any other measures, all tested before you start. You then have a starting point, and it is very exciting to see what your body can do in an alkalized balanced state! Your health specialist will also be able to assist you in customizing your Barley Gold Alkalizing Flush to your body’s needs. Your customized Flush may need to consist of certain Oils, drinking Chlorophyll water or even taking a liver cleanse vitamin to help with the elimination of the toxins.
This Flush should only be started after being on the Barley Gold for at least 3 months, or if you are at the 2 tablespoon servings.
In trying to maintain an alkaline state, try having one Barley Gold Alkalizing Flush day per week, or per month. Try this with no other fruits or vegetables just the Barley Gold. Also try including a tablespoon 5 minutes before each meal. Proper food combining will also help maintain a more alkalized state. This is keeping proteins and carbohydrates apart when you eat.
The length of the Barley Gold Alkalizing Flush should be at least 2 weeks,
and may need to be longer depending on the pH state of your body, and the need
to be changed. This should be discussed with your health specialist.
While you are doing the Barley Gold Alkalizing Flush, you can help your lymphatic system drain the toxins by walking 1 hour each day, practicing yoga, soaking in Epson Salt bath, dry brushing your skin, rebounding, or even using an Infared Sauna.
Please remember that stress, anxiety, unforgiveness or any negative emotions are acidic and harmful for your body. So don’t forget to be at peace, be joyful, forgive and love!
Barley Gold Alkalizing Flush
Increase the Barley Gold intake to 2-4 heaping tablespoons three times per day or more if hungry.
- Only consume (if hungry) raw vegetables, fruit, and raw proteins.
- Drink at least 8 glasses of Distilled or RO water, with lemon.
- Try to stay on this for about 2 weeks.
For aid with Liver and Kidney support, look below for Liver Cleanse Smoothie.
After the 2 weeks if weight and health has not been stabilized, add Barley Gold into a smoothie drink 3 times per day.
- Tablespoon of organic raw flax seed (ground before mixing)
- 8 Ounces of organic nut milk
- 1/2 a Cup of organic fresh berries or fruit
- 1 Tablespoon of raw unpasteurized honey
- 2 organic, free range raw eggs
- 3-4 Tablespoons of Barley Gold
The ingredients should be mixed in a blender with the eggs being added last and only for about 10 seconds. This smoothie can then be added to the daily routine and be taken 3 times per day until your weight and health seems to stabilize (about another 3-4 weeks).
After stabilized weight and health, only eat if you are feeling hungry. The addition of other food can be incorporated into the diet and reduce the smoothie down to once or twice a day. You should notice mild allergic reactions happening when you start to consume other foods that your body does not want. Runny noses, watering eyes, and itching may occur. You may also feel nauseous or an immediate bowel movement with this consumption of other food. If this occurs, learn what your body is saying to you. Either eat less of these foods or avoid them for the time being. Of course, some food that you have liked previously, you will have no more desire for. Again that is O.K.; your body will tell you what it needs.
