Posted by: Denise on: August 15, 2015

I’m really big into lists. But sometimes I think it’s best to focus on one good thing at a time. And one good thing you can do for yourself is to alkalize. There is a lot of information out there about what to eat in order to keep your body alkaline and therefore more healthy. […]
