Recently I experienced the 5 Day @home online juice cleansing program and just look at the goodies that arrived on my kitchen bench! Oh, there was also a bag of coffee and a DIY enema kit. I wasn’t up for that hit as I was feeling very wiped out by day 4, and I don’t even drink coffee – well randomly – let alone have the desire to insert it elsewhere. Give me a colonic any day! You can do both on this super cleanse and I highly recommend you do. Be warned though, fasting is not for the faint-hearted in my clinical opinion, yet I sure did have a lot more energy and felt squeaky clean after the 5 days. The ultimate surprise was how beneficial I found the Hawaiian Pacifica Spirulina supplied – a natural appetite suppressant which actually works a treat.

One of the most interesting inclusions on the program is the intake of aluminium free bicarb soda on rising. Sarah tells me that the bicarb acts as a buffer to alkalise the systemic pH so that the liver can offload its toxins effectively in the detoxification process. When the system is acidic the liver holds on to toxins within the body.  Allergies generally start with the body’s inability to produce a certain enzyme, or to produce enough enzymes for the digestive process to work effectively.

In conjunction with this is an inability to produce enough bicarbonate essential for the pancreatic enzymes to function properly. When this happens undigested proteins penetrate the bloodstream inducing more allergic reactions. Inflammation in such a scenario is systemic but can focus on the pancreas forcing decreases in the production of bicarbonate, insulin and necessary enzymes. 

The bicarbonate ion acts as a buffer to maintain the normal levels of acidity (pH) in blood and other fluids in the body. Bicarbonate levels are measured to monitor the acidity of the blood and body fluids. The acidity is affected by foods or medications that we ingest and the function of the kidneys and lungs.
