Acid Balance


The pH of our tissues and body fluids affects the state of our health.  A chronically over acidic body pH corrodes body tissue.  (Acidosis) Our entire metabolic system depends on a balanced pH.

Foods very high in alkaline reserve minerals, can assist the body to detox, add oxygenation and hydration, improve bowel function and digestion and reduce fermentation and putrefaction in the large intestine, plus improve liver function and bile secretion.

People with diabetes and obesity  tend to have a high acidic pH.


A lifestyle of 70-80%  vegetables will slowly replenish the alkaline reserve minerals and remove some toxic metals and chemicals from the body that cause acidity.

Add home juicing to your routine.  Juicing carrots with some greens in it, or 1-2 ounces of wheat grass juice are excellent and very alkaline-forming.

Eat Fruits but not too much-Organic Berries, Apples, Watermelon.

Avoiding refined sugar is key!

A balanced pH also means balanced cholesterol.

Simple practices to incorporate:

  • Soak mildly acid-forming foods such as legumes before cooking them, starting the sprouting process, which is alkalizing.
  • Increase fermented foods
  • Chew foods thoroughly, one “bite size step” at a time.
  • Avoid  drinking anything while eating, as this stops the digestive process from beginning within the mouth.
  • Avoid mucous causing foods such as GMO dairy and wheat.

New Eating habits:

Become mindful of how, what and how much you eat.  Chew food  with intention one or  two foods only at a meal.  This takes some getting use to, but works admirably as it reduces digestive effort tremendously.

Excellent veggie dish for balance:

2 head of broccoli

1/2 head of cauliflower,

1/ bunch of asparagus.

All organic of course.

Roast or saute with a sprinkle of organic cold pressed olive oil and a small amount of water. Dice some fresh organic garlic and add to a stainless steel roaster pan.  Salt using celtic sea salt.  Top veggie dish with Roasted Garlic. Serves 4-6
