AvaTalks About This Article and how The Alkaline Diet Can Heal The Body
PH Balance is the goal of an Alkaline Diet . When we say pH we are referring to the measure of how acidic or alkaline something is and specifically this diet is designed to maintain our blood pH at a slightly alkaline level which keeps our body in optimum health. We help our bodies to maintain this pH balance by eating more alkaline-forming foods and fewer acid-forming foods.
Alkaline-forming foods include most fruits, vegetables, herbs, nuts, seeds and herbal teas.
Acid-forming foods include most grains, beans, meats, dairy products, fish, fast foods and processed foods.
Eating more alkaline foods brings our blood pH back into balance by releasing alkaline-rich minerals such as calcium, phosphorus and magnesium into our bloodstream. These minerals are what our body uses to maintain and repair our body and to produce the energy necessary for fighting off disease and bring us to higher levels of health and vitality .
If we are not eating enough alkaline-forming foods, then our body has to pull these important minerals from our bones, teeth and organs. This can compromise our immune system, cause fatigue and make us vulnerable to viruses and disease.
An Alkaline diet help us to return to a balanced Ph level after the our acidic levels return to normal we can
eat a diet of 60-80% alkaline-forming foods and 20-40% acid-forming foods.
When your body rebalances its Ph levels then the 20%-40% can acid-forming foods include healthier options like beans, grains and vegetables such as carrots cauliflower and broccoli. Avoid pesticides which tend to be acid-forming, so choose organic fruits and vegetables whenever possible.

The basics of the alkaline diet are all about working in harmony with your body’s ‘acid-alkaline’ balance and about keeping your blood maintained at a slightly alkaline pH of 7.365.
Some Negative Effects Of An Over Acidic Diet
A highly acidic diet creates a favorable environment for yeast and fungus. When switching to a more alkaline diet, you may notice that you have more energy and that chronic yeast infections begin to disappear.
Lesser important functions in the body will be compromised, for example, alkaline minerals such as calcium will be leeched from the bones to alkalize the blood. Over the long term, this can cause osteoporosis.
You Can Heal Yourself By Changing Your Lifestyle
The alkaline diet is a healthy eating lifestyle based on eating foods that metabolize to leave an alkaline ‘ash’ of minerals such as calcium, iron, zinc, magnesium and copper. Foods are therefore classified as alkaline, acidic or neutral according to the pH of the solution created with their ash in water.
Oh and it has nothing to do with stomach acid or even the pH of foods in their physical form. For example, lemons are alkaline forming but acidic in their physical form.
