7 Alkaline Foods

An Alkaline pH for your body helps to fight disease and dis-ease.

Some will argue that it fights/prevents cancer!

Disease thrives in acidic environments….try these foods to fight back

and restore and/or achieve a proper alkaline pH level ( >7.25 )

** pH is a measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a solution.

It is measured on a scale of 0 to 14—the lower the pH the

more acidic the solution, the higher the pH the more

alkaline (or base) the solution. When a solution is neither

acid nor alkaline it has a pH of 7 which is neutral.

It is recommended that you test your pH levels to

determine if your body’s pH needs immediate attention.

By using pH test strips, we can determine your pH factor

quickly and easily.   The more acidic you are, the more

prone you are to diseases such as heart disease, cancer

and diabetes. **

Read up to answer questions about what this miraculous tape can do…..


For more than 25 years,  Kinesio Taping has been breaking new ground in the fields of sports performance, pain management and physical therapy.The Kinesio Taping Method is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while allowing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion. It is used to successfully treat a variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological and medical conditions. Both Kinesio® Tex Tape and the training protocol have shown results that would have been unheard of using older methods and materials.In the mid-1970s, Dr. Kenzo Kase was already a well-known Japanese practitioner licensed in chiropractic and acupuncture. He developed the tape, which has a texture and elasticity very close to living human skin, in response to limitations he encountered working with rigid sports taping methods on his own patients.

Dr. Kase was experienced with both Japanese and US norms for patient treatment. He began to have questions about the limitations of the Western medical mindset. He heard of a cryotherapy treatment for arthritis that utilized tape to adjust joint distortion.  In Western medicine the presumption had been that once a joint is in a certain shape that cannot be changed. He was intrigued by the possibilities that this treatment could remediate the distortion.

He developed the tape, which has a texture and elasticity very close to living human tissue, in response to limitations he encountered working with rigid sports taping methods on his own patients.

To develop such a modality, he ordered supplies of the different athletic tapes that were available at that time. None of them gave him the results he was looking for. By trial and error, he realized that the source of the complaint was actually in the muscle, not in the joint or in the bone. To stabilize the joint he saw that it was more effective to tape around the muscle to achieve joint correction. The tapes that he was able to obtain were rigid, designed to immobilize the joint.

In cases of injury or overuse, the muscle loses its elasticity. Dr. Kase needed to develop a tape that would have the same elasticity as healthy human muscle. He knew from his practice that the tape would also need to stay on the skin where it was applied. He spent two years doing a lot of research relating to elasticity, adhesives and breathability.

Finally, he came up with a tape that possessed the proper degree of elasticity, and that lifts the skin microscopically.  From that beginning, Kinesio® Tex Tape was invented. Its unique properties were based on a study of kinesiology.

Kinesio® Tex Tape is used to

  • Re-educate the neuromuscular system
  • Reduce pain
  • Optimize performance
  • Prevent injury
  • Promote improved circulation and healing

Dr. Kase continues to work closely with Kinesio® distributors throughout the world as well as with Kinesio Taping® Association International (KTAI) and its members. Kinesio® USA and KTAI continue to maintain Dr. Kase’s high standards of care and to track new and increasingly effective uses for the taping method.
