Stevia is the best sweetener for someone who is watching his weight or has diabetes or hypoglycemia. Stevia is a sweet, noncaloric herb native to Paraguay that has been used to sweeten foods and beverages for centuries. It is two to three hundred times sweeter than sugar but has very little effect on blood glucose and does not cause cavities.
Most Americans are overacidic because their diet includes processed foods and too much meat, sugar, salt, caffeine, and alcohol. An overacid environment can lead to serious health conditions. Some of these include kidney stones, plaque in the arteries, osteoporosis, arthritis, fatigue, weight gain, water retention, dry hard stools, burning tongue, and bad breath. We must have sufficient alkaline reserves to buffer the acids in our body. Calcium cannot stay in our bones if the body is overacidic. In Chapter 1, learn about what to eat and drink to bring the pH into balance if your body is overacidic.
Soft drinks are addictive and very harmful to the body. One canned soft drink contains thirteen teaspoons of sugar. Some diet drinks are even more toxic because they contain aspartame - a serious poison! Beware of those sweetened with Splenda as well. Most soft drinks are high in caffeine and can cause heart palpitations. Many of our youth in high school and on college campuses are seriously addicted to soft drinks, and they are beginning to rot their teeth and destroy their pancreases at a young age! Learn to prepare some delightful, healthy drinks to replace soft drinks in Chapter 2.
