The human body requires adequate oxygenation for cellular health. Even though there are many ways to improve cellular oxygenation, four ways are especially effective. In part 1 of this article, we discussed how to improve oxygenation through deep breathing and drinking alkaline, ionized water. The other two powerful ways to oxygenate and improve your body’s terrain are by eating an alkaline diet and exercising moderately.
3. Alkaline diet. One of the best ways to increase the alkalinity of the body is to eat a vegetarian diet with a high concentration of raw foods. If you’re not ready to eat mostly raw, organic food or to give up meat, I encourage you to educate yourself about which foods are more alkaline forming. There are many acid-alkaline diet books and food charts available online that you can study.
One of the most alkalizing foods that everyone will want to incorporate in their diets is chlorophyll. Remember: chlorophyll is the substance in plants that allows them to absorb light from the sun and convert that light into usable energy.
By eating a diet high in chlorophyll (dark green veggies and super greens), we drink in liquid oxygen. Super greens come in different formulas and may include wheatgrass, alfalfa grass, barley grass, chlorella, spirulina, blue-green algae, or Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (AFA), the most nutrient-dense food known to mankind. Many of these formulas come in powdered form and are easily mixed in water or juice.
4. Moderate exercise. Aerobic exercise floods the body with oxygen and rids it of waste via the lymphatic system. Just as blood is circulated through the body by the heart, exercise is what circulates the lymph. If the lymph doesn’t circulate, then the tissues become oxygen-depleted because they become clogged with metabolic waste.
One of the best ways to exercise is to jump on a rebounder, or mini-trampoline. As you bounce, your cells get gently massaged and the lymph is completely flushed within a few minutes. I highly recommend the Needak rebounder, which is also gentle on your joints.
Walking, Yoga, Qigong, and swimming are other moderate forms of exercise that alkalize and oxygenate the body. The key for your optimum health is simply to find some type of exercise that you enjoy and will practice daily!
