Softball / Dimona draws first blood in semis

Dimona Mean Judeans took a 1-0 lead in the their semifinal series
By Micha Winston

Ben Kai Ben Yisrael went 4-4 with three runs scored and threw a runner out at third to end the game as the Dimona Mean Judeans took a 1-0 lead in the their semifinal series on Monday with a 7-5 victory over the Tel Aviv Tigers.

Dimona scored one in the first off of starter Goose Gillett when Ben Kai doubled and came around to score on Elyaheed Ben Israel's single and tacked on two more in the second on Elinatan Ben Israel's long two-run sacrifice fly scoring Akhaziyah Ben Israel and Ovade Ben Israel.

The Tigers battled back, closing the gap to 3-2 when two runs scored off of Yarone Ben Israel on passed balls, one after a triple by Alberto Scioscia.

In the fourth inning, the Tigers tag-team pitching strategy backfired as the Southerners tallied two more off of relief pitcher Mike Williams - Ben Kai again scoring, and single runs in the fifth and sixth off of Ilan Spira.

Down 7-2 in the seventh inning, the Tigers rallied against new pitcher Elyaheed. Two runs scored on a fielding error and then, with runners on first and third, Mendie Pinchovski laced an RBI single to centerfield. Ben Kai came up throwing and fired a perfect strike to third baseman Amikhi Ben Israel who applied the tag to runner Eran Kedar for the final out.


When our pH level is unbalanced, almost any area of our bodies can be negatively affected

Each and every person living in the U.S. is facing a myriad of health and lifestyle challenges every day.

We are constantly being fed new information about what is healthy and what is unhealthy while thousands of us try to deal with problems ranging from obesity to fatigue to life threatening diseases.

The alkalarian approach to diet offers a simple, basic understanding of what causes the body to become ‘out of balance’. Through what has become the typical Western diet largely based around meat, dairy, sugars, alcohol, saturated fats and caffeine, millions of us have created a hostile, acidic environment within our bodies.

The pH level of our internal fluids affects every living cell in our bodies and the effect that over-acidification can have upon the health of our bodies is immense, with a chronically over acidic pH creating an extremely negative environment which affects all cellular functions from the beatings of the heart to the neural workings of the brain.

When our pH level is unbalanced, almost any area of our bodies can be negatively affected creating results such as cancer, heart disease, obesity, weight problems, allergies, fatigue and premature aging as well as problems with our nervous system, cardiovascular system and muscles.


Where to Start

To begin to alkalize it is important to start consuming alkalizing foods, higher alkaline water and drinks while eliminating acidifying foods and drinks from your diet. As a rough guide you should try to include some of the following:
Foods that Alkalize:

Vegetables: Spinach, asparagus, broccoli, carrots, celery, cucumber, lettuce, courgette, cabbage, greens, swede, squash (summer, butternut, yellow etc), peppers, chili, tomato, onion, garlic, chickpeas, pinto beans, kidney beans, spring onion, root ginger
Salads: Lettuce, spinach, celery, cucumber, nuts (aside from peanuts and cashews), seeds, avocado, carrots etc.

Herbs & Spices: Basil, parsley, mint, coriander, ginger, cumin etc.
Essential Fats: Flax/Linseed, Evening Primrose, Olive Oil, Avocado Oil or an oil blend such as Udo' Choice

Fruits: ONLY - Lemons, Lime, Grapefruit, Watermelon, Tomato, Avocado - all other fruits to be used quite sparingly

Grasses: Wheat, barley, kamut, lemon, shave etc.

Sprouts: Alfalfa, mung bean, broccoli, radish, wheat, lentil, fenugreek etc.

Dips and Sauces: Pesto, hummus, tahini, guacamole etc.

Foods that Acidify:
Sugar, Dairy Products, Meat (aside from occasional coldwater fish), Caffeine, Tobacco, Wheat (aside from sprouts or wheatgrass), Fruit (apart from those mentioned above), Bad fats (saturated, transfatty acids, hydrogenated), Junk/ Processed foods, Fizzy drinks, Peanuts and Cashews, Pasta and White Rice, Condiments.

The most effective way to reverse the trend of over-acidification is to ‘cleanse’ the body of toxins and rapidly create an alkaline environment in which the body can heal itself. Cleansing is a natural, holistic method of healing in which the body detoxifies itself and regenerates healthy vibrant cells, effectively becoming more alkalized.

For some people, cleansing can put an individual one year ahead in the healing process!

This is a very brief outline of the most important principles of an alkaline diet. I highly recommend you read Alkalize or Die, by Dr. Theodore A. Baroody to gain a full understanding of an alkaline lifestyle.
