In this section I will cover the most important aspects regarding the diet, the reasons for adopting it the ways of making the transition to being alkaline. Most people assume that a diet should help solve a present problem like an overweight issue or an illness. In these circumstances, a diet is like a treatment – not necessarily a substitute for medication but a welcome addition.
While this is somehow correct, a diet should also be perceived as a “maintenance” tool for the body. In today’s world, the living conditions are worse than ever. Air, water and food are all polluted and contaminated. Modern life is stressful and wears out the body much faster than thirty years ago. As a result, diseases and various other health problems start to appear much sooner than before.
In a Swedish study from 2012, the scientists discovered that most 30 year-old men had aged bodies, like those of 45 year-old men twenty to thirty years before. The main culprits were the modern, stressful lifestyle and diet.
Therefore, a diet can have then multiple roles. It can be used to maintain the body in a good working order, it can help with various health problems or it can be used in specific situations.
