Finding your balance with Tea Bird Tea Alkalising & Turmeric 10 day plan

Alkalising Food Chart Tea Bird Tea

Understanding how your body works and reacts to different foods or teas is a great help when optimising your health and managing stress, anxiety, weight and energy.

The Tea Bird Tea healthy 10 Day Alkalising with turmeric plan focuses on the popular theory that by maintaining an alkaline state in your body you can minimise inflammation in your joints, reduce acid in the tummy and therefore prevent the onset of diseases which are prevalent in our society today.

Some studies* believe that a high acidity in the body can promote the development of some cancers, arthritis, stress and anxiety. So by actively managing this with a low acidic diet and aiding with an Alkalising tea you can find that you are not just detoxing but actually enabling your body to operate more effectively and reduce many of these symptoms day to day.

I suffer from asthma and hay fever allergies and have a family history of arthritis as well as having been extremely sports active throughout my life as I approach 40, the last few years I have noticed a particular decline in the health of my joints and of course weight gathering around my middle. Although I lead an active lifestyle I also have a very social orientated background, travel a lot and run a business along with 2 kids and supporting my husband in his career.

Try the alkalising diet for 10 days and see the difference – the feedback we have received has been a feeling of lightness, clearer thinking and higher energy levels. I personally have noticed a reduction in the inflammation in my joints, which means in the mornings I am much less stiff making me feel more energetic and ready for the day.

Which foods are alkalizing and which are alkaline?

Most high protein foods such as meat, fish, poultry and eggs, nearly all carbohydrates including grains, breads, pastas and fats are acid forming. Most fruits and vegetables are alkaline forming. Although citrus fruits, such as oranges and grapefruits contain organic acids, they are not acid forming when metabolised. Free form amino acids are not acid forming, but instead offer unique buffering capabilities to the body to help offset acid wastes.

PH Levels

Interestingly there is a way to offset alkalising foods which you may love to eat as well as have to eat when you are in a social situation. The chart states that it takes 20 parts alkaline ingredients to offset 1 part alkalising acid building foods or drinks. This seems like a very high ratio but is manageable.

So for instance when you are cooking you would use a 90% ratio of vegetables against a 10% ratio of meats or fish. If you consider the hunter, gatherer theory of portion control, taken directly from cavemen this makes complete sense. Their diet would consist of mainly vegetables, fruits and berries and they would hunt and eat meant once every 2 weeks.

Alternatively you can use fresh fruit or vegetables juices and teas to add to your overall alkaline diet to promote flushing any acidity through. Makes sense right!

Top 10 alkalizing foods and drinks

10 alkalising foods to eat by Tea Bird Tea

Avocado – full of good fats which aid lower cholesterol

Cucumber – has a cooling effect on the body and great for tired eyes!

Cayenne Pepper – increases metabolic rate & cleanses body through warming.

Chia Seeds – personally I don’t like these as they get stuck in teeth and if you get over excited and add too many they feel like you are eating frog spun. So I recommend throwing into soups as the least offensive option. However they are the SUPERFOOD darling of the world and are high in fiber, impressively high in antioxidants and aid weight loss so worth a shot!*

Lemon – acts as a natural antibacterial agent & promotes immune boost VC

Spinach – boosts iron levels which reduce tiredness

Kale – best in soups for me but boosts iron and promotes good digestion

Watermelon – best for hydrating and is easily digested therefore a great cleanse

Garlic – Amazing for heart health and managing high blood pressure – personal favorite I add it to everything.

Top 10 recipes to aid your 10 day Alkalizing plan

Homemade Chicken soup/ broth

Intermittent Fasting

As part of all of our Tea Bird Tea healthy plans we recommend using intermittent fasting to aid digestion, improve health and allow your body to start operating better. The theory is that by giving your body a break each day from snacking on additional foods you allow it time to rest and process. This does not mean starving yourself or going without it is merely a timing consideration for when you are eating.

Short-Term Fasting Understand that our bodies are either in a fed state or a fasted state. As long as your body is in a fed state, it simply cannot mobilise your stored body fat for fuel. Once your body has entered a fasted state, however, things really get going... and the fat will literally melt off of your body.

The problem is that many of us spend as many as 20 hours a day in a fed state. Because of this, we can never really get into a serious fat-burning mode. As you know, when we eat more calories than our bodies need each day, the extra calories are stored in the form of fat deposits. These fat deposits act as our energy reserves. If these energy reserves are not used, they simply accumulate, resulting in more and more weight gain.

The problem is that most of us never use our energy reserves and therefore, we do not lose weight. You see, the body uses the food you eat as its primary source of fuel and it only uses your energy reserves when energy from the last meal is no longer available. But in a world where food is cheap, easy to get, and very plentiful, most of us spend our days in a constantly fed state where we never have to tap into our energy reserves.

Short term fasting reverses this trend. When set up properly, you will be spending more time in a fasted state than a fed one, resulting in significant amounts of fat being burned from your body. Here is a shortlist of related health benefits associated with intermittent fasting:

  • Appetite control
  • Reduced body fat levels
  • Healthier cholesterol levels
  • Creating a calorie deficit that leads to permanent fat loss
  • Reduced inflammation
  • Reduced risk of disease (cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease)
  • A cleaner, well-rested and recharged digestive system
  • Autophagy - your body will “eat” its broken and ineffective cells. These old cells       then get replaced with new cells, making your body stronger, healthier and more efficient.
  • Increased blood flow to fat cells (this gets the stubborn fat out)
  • Lowered insulin levels
