/ Alkaline Forming Foods
the pH is a major step toward well-being and greater health.
Human blood pH should be slightly
alkaline (7.35 - 7.45). A pH of 7.0 is neutral. A pH below 7.0 is acidic. A pH
above 7.0 is alkaline. An acidic pH can occur from, an acid forming diet,
emotional stress, toxic overload, and/or immune reactions or any process that
deprives the cells of oxygen and other nutrients. The body will try to
compensate for acidic pH by using alkaline minerals. If the diet does not
contain enough minerals to compensate, a build up of acids in the cells will
An acidic balance will: decrease
the body's ability to absorb minerals and other nutrients, decrease the energy
production in the cells, decrease it's ability to repair damaged cells, decrease
it's ability to detoxify heavy metals, make tumor cells thrive, and make it more
susceptible to fatigue and illness.
The reason acidosis is more
common in our society is mostly due to the typical American diet, which is far
too high in acid producing animal products like meat, eggs and dairy, and far
too low in alkaline producing foods like fresh vegetables. Additionally, we eat
acid producing processed foods like white flour and sugar and drink acid
producing beverages like coffee and soft drinks. We use too many drugs, which
are acid forming; and we use artificial chemical sweeteners like NutraSweet®,
Spoonful®, Sweet 'N Low®, Equal®, or Aspartame, which are poison and
extremely acid-forming. One of the best things we can do to correct an overly
acid body is to clean up the diet and lifestyle.
To maintain health, the diet should
consist of 60% alkaline forming foods & 40% acid forming foods. To restore
health, the diet should consist of 80% alkaline forming foods & 20% acid
forming foods. Generally, alkaline forming foods include: most fruits, green
vegetables, peas, beans, lentils, spices, herbs and seasonings, and seeds and
nuts. Generally, acid forming foods include: meat, fish, poultry, eggs, grains,
This chart is for those trying to
"adjust" their body pH. The pH scale is from 0 to 14, with numbers
below 7 acidic (low on oxygen) and numbers above 7 alkaline. An acidic body is a
sickness magnet. This chart is intended only as a general guide to alkalizing
and acidifying foods.

There are several versions of the Acidic and Alkaline Food chart to be found in different books and on the Internet. The following foods are sometimes attributed to the Acidic side of the chart and sometimes to the Alkaline side. Remember, you don't need to adhere strictly to the Alkaline side of the chart, just make sure a good percentage of the foods you eat come from that side.

2. Good for a yearly fast. For several days eat whole melon, chew pits well & eat also. Super-alkalizing food.
3. Substitute for gelatin, more nourishing.
4. Stimulating, non-irritating body healer. Good for endocrine system.
5. Purifies kidneys.
6. Powerful acid reducer/detoxifier to produce acid urine temporarily, causing alkalinity for the long term.
7. Natural sugars give alkalinity. Added sugar causes juice to become acid forming.
8. Depends on vegetable’s content and sweetness.
9. Enzyme rich, superior digestibility.
10. High calcium content, and a corn flour substitute.
11. Elevates acid food 5.0 in alkaline direction.

16. Raw unpasteurized is a digestive aid to increase HCL in the stomach. 1 tablespoon, plus honey & water before meals.
17. Soak 12 hours, and peel skin to eat.
18. Sun-dried, tree ripened, otherwise 6.0.
19. Using sea-salt and apple cider vinegar.
20. Contains sea minerals. Dried at low temperatures.
21. Range from 7.0 to 8.0 depending on spice.
22. Sprouted grains are more alkaline. Grains chewed well become more alkaline.
23. High sodium to aid digestion.
24. High levels of utilizable calcium. Grind before eating.
25. Alkalinity and digestibility higher.
26. Heating causes fats to harden and become indigestible.
27. High mucous production.
28. Mucous forming and hard to digest.
29. When sprouted dry beans rate 7.0.
30. Contain acid-forming benzoic and quinic acids.
31. Full of iron.
32. Unrefined wheat is more alkaline.
33. High quality red wine, no more than 4 oz. daily to build blood.
34. Good quality, well brewed - up to 5.5. Fast brewed beers drop to 5.0.
35. Most are white sugars with golden syrup added.
36. Organic, fresh ground-up to 5.5.
37. Cheaper brands drop to 5.0, as does over-indulgence.
38. Leaches minerals.
39. Bleached - has no goodness.

nutritional value of the food you eat and the supplements you take; it is highly
recommended to add vegetable enzymes to your diet, especially if you eat cooked
foods. The asterisks indicate that THESE FOOD ITEMS REVERSE WHEN DIGESTION IS
PERFECT (Example: Ripe Oranges become Alkaline). **EAT MELONS ALONE OR LEAVE
THEM ALONE**. Melons, a very rich food in all minerals and trace minerals,
eaten alone as a whole meal, are the easiest food to digest and assimilate of
any. Therefore, do not mix any other food with melons.
