Acid Reflux has been a concern of mine. Will eating a vegan diet help with this condition and balance out my bodies pH?    

Yes, acid reflux is a condition of an unbalanced pH inside of your body. The bodies pH balance should be more alkaline, rather than acidic. Eating meat and other animal products, which are acid producing, can help offset the balance especially if you are on a high animal protein diet. A body that is highly acidic  stores more fat and toxins. By eliminating meat (use vegetarian meat –  vegan) and other animal products from your diet, and eating more fruits and vegetables, you can gain control over your bodies pH and stop the heart burn and acid reflux. Avoid carbonated drinks, alcohol, pepper, tomato sauce and orange juice. Infuse your body daily with greens you eat or drink in a shake, like Vega, which actually tastes good.  Comes in vanilla chai, chocolate or berry.

Another ‘green’ shake probiotic option is by Vibrant Health. It is gluten-free and supports nutrition, digestion, circulation and your immune system.

The cells in your body change when they live in an overly acidic environment. High acidity can cause illness and put you at greater risk of developing diseases and conditions, such as cancer, osteoporosis, loss of muscle mass, fatigue, weakened immune system, fat accumulation and inflammation, among others. Consume foods rich in chlorophyll which are alkaline. This will help with cleansing to remove toxins from your blood stream, regenerate cells and improve the flow of oxygen. Try drinking Kombucha, an organic raw living tea that contains active enzymes, probiotics and detoxifiers. Kombucha helps with digestion, immune system and liver functions, helps to control appetite and weight, increases body alkalinity, supports anti-aging and nourishes cells, skin and hair. My favorite flavors are multi-green and maqui berry grapefruit., then ginger and original.

Amazing Meal is a powder that you blend with water (approx 10 oz) and enjoy. It is organic, raw, gluten free, vegan, soy free and dairy free. It is a superfood drink that provides greens, protein, and fruits & vegetables for optimum energy while delivering tremendous health benefits.

I sampled all 3 flavors. Pomegranate Mango Infusion was my favorite. I blended this with 8oz cold water and 2 oz of Naked OJ. It was simply delicious. I would even have this as a dessert it tastes that good! The powder is only 110 calories with 10 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber. Fat is only 1 gram and sugar 6 grams. The blend provides 80% of vitamin A, 40% each of vitamins C & K as well as 20% of B12. There are additional vitamin and mineral benefits, but these are the substantial ones. The powder is a blend of wheat grass, kale, barley grass and alfalfa, with rice and hemp protein and a blend of antioxidant fruits and vegetables, such as acai, carrot, blueberry, goji, rose hips, maca and banana which are all organic. Flax seed powder is also incorporated as well as digestive enzymes and active culture probiotics for an alkaline drink and a pH health benefit!

I am a chocoholic, so I was surprised to find I loved the Chocolate Infusion second. It is also extremely yummy to drink. You don’t feel like you have to suffer drinking a ‘green’ drink. The Original Blend is a vanilla flavor and looks and tastes more green. It is still very delicious. I added in 1 banana to give it more flavor. They are all great tasting and deliver tremendous health benefits. Buy them in individual packets so you can take with you, especially if you travel.
