|n alkaline body is a healthy body. Unfortunately, North Americans seem to love to eat more of the foods that cause our bodies to become acidic. This results in the body having to work overtime to correct this un-natural state, thus leaving the body much more prone to allergies, sensitivities, viruses, infections, and diseases. A major break-through occurred when it was discovered that cancer cells, exposed to an alkaline environment died within a few hours! However, it is very tragic that our mainstream medical community is either, not aware of this information, or else chooses not to recognize it. In any case, tens of thousands of needless deaths happen every year because of lack of knowledge, in general, or perhaps, as a result of deliberate coverups. (Definitely, food for thought.) For those who are interested in preventing, and possibly even reversing, the ravages of disease, follow the "Recipe For Good Health" (click on "Optimum Health"). Make sure you consult a naturopathic or holistic doctor to identify any current or potential health problems, medical conditions, or reactions with medications.|
|Alkaline Versus Acid|
|Alkaline ~ Forming Foods|
|Acid ~ Forming Foods|
|Most fresh fruits and vegetables are alkaline-forming in the body, with a few exceptions. All the foods listed below can, and should, be eaten freely, barring allergies. The list shows foods in order of the highest alkaline-forming, starting at the top:
Sea Plants (dulse, nori, kombu, wakame) Raw Vegetables, except tomatoes, green and wax beans, spinach, carrots, corn, green peas, snow peas, chard Raw Fruits & Berries, except cranberries, pomegranate, plums, persimmons, guava, rhubarb, dried and pickled fruit Herbs, Spices & Seasonings, except nutmeg, vanilla, curry Sea Salt Lentils Baking Soda Grain Beverages Mineral Water Blackstrap Molasses Tofu Poppy Seeds Sprouts Almonds Apple Cider Cod Liver Oil Evening Primrose Oil Sesame Seed Oil Brown Rice Syrup Green, Ginger & Mu Teas Flax Oil Fungi Avocado Oil Coconut Oil Olive Oil Oats Quinoa Unsulphured Currents & Raisins Wild Rice Umeboshi Vinegar Human Milk
|Although the acid-forming foods are less desirable than the alkaline-forming foods, some are still very healthy. The lowest acid-forming foods could be eaten more freely, but the higher ones should be eaten only occasionally, or not at all. Anyone battling cancer should most definitely refrain from eating all acid-forming foods as much as possible. We should all try to eliminate those in the top two thirds of the following list:
Medications, Drugs, & Chemical Additives, especially antibiotics, steroids, antihistamines, & psychotrophic drugs Red Meats (beef, pork, lamb) Sugar Milk & Dairy Products Fried Foods Hydrogenated Oils Alcohol Malt Vinegars Cocoa Cottonseed Products Artificial Sweeteners Poultry Shellfish Yeast Peanuts Caffeine (regular tea & coffee) Eggs Fish Carob Gelatin Wild Duck Venison Honey Maple Syrup Most Dried Fruits Most Legumes Most Grains Most Nuts & Seeds, including oils Natural Yogurt
