Adjusting the Monkey Diet for Hot Weather
One of the main concepts of the Hauser Diet is a balanced blood pH, the other is to maintain balanced blood sugars. Blood pH is affected by a number of different factors, a common one is the food that a person chooses to eat, and the other is the temperature in which a person is living. Temperature and blood pH tend to follow the same patterns â€“ a consistently high temperature (like the summer months) can cause high blood pH while consistently low temperatures (like the winter months) can cause low blood pH.
As the summer temperatures heat up this season some people may need a change in their diet. Read on to see how the upcoming summer temperatures may affect your Diet Type:
Monkeys tend to have alkaline blood pH, meaning their blood pH runs high. The high vegetation diet is designed to lower the blood pH into the normal range.
So what may happen when a Monkey enters into the summer?
While the diet is helping to keep the blood pH low, the elevated temperatures may cause the blood pH to swing back to the alkaline range. It is important that Monkeys stay true to their diets for these hot months. How can you tell if your blood pH is rising too high? You will start to feel warm compared to most people and may even notice some heat intolerance â€“ these are common feelings for Monkeys that are often resolved by following the diet.
A hot feeling that returns is a good way of figuring out if your blood pH is too high.
