What is alkaline or alkalizing?

Alkaline refers to a state of reduced acidity (in the body) and ‘alkalizing’ refers to where a substance can reduce or eradicate acidity. In scientific terms, it refers to having an alkali of more than 7.

I always recommend eating peeled potatoes – even sweet potatoes.

The skins contain natural chemicals and fertilizer chemical residue that can cause allergic reactions.

I used to love crispy roasted skin on potatoes. Now I keep the risk of inflammation reduced as much as possible. By using recipes like garlic mashdips, and potato cakes instead, peeled potato dishes can be made more tasty and interesting.

Potatoes are high in Vitamin C and contain Alpha-lipoic acid which is said to destroy free radicals and reduce inflammation.

It’s also a good source of Magnesium which is an excellent supplement to help with sleep and reduce anxiety. Rest and a reduction or absence of anxiety are crucial factors in helping to suppress itchiness and as a result the inflammatory effects of a flare-up.
