Alkalizing the body is simply balancing the ph level. A balanced level of potential hydrogen or ph refers to the high amount of alkalinity in the body.

The best way to alkaline a body is to follow the alkaline diet. This diet plan has nothing to give but to help a person balance his or her intake of acid and alkaline foods. Well, foods are grouped into two classifications which are alkaline foods and acidic foods. The diet is about consuming at least 60 to 80% alkaline foods. Thus, the remaining 40 to 20% must be acidic foods.

Alkaline foods produce alkaline ash that turn into strong acids and nutrients that are needed by the body. Most of these nutrients help develop the growth of cells, repair damaged cells, and boost energy. In other words, alkaline producing foods can help a person fight possible diseases and illnesses which include life-threatening cancers. Other than that, this also helps prevent premature aging and obesity. Alkaline has antioxidant and anti-aging properties that can keep your skin look younger for ages. It is also a good method for individuals who like to reduce weight because alkaline does not produce fat or calories that can add up pounds to the body.

In contrast, overly acidic can be dangerous to the health. There is a slow repair or development of cells. It is easier for a person to inherit sickness because of the presence of toxins and other damaging chemicals to the body. This can lead to several diseases and ailments. Most of the acidic foods are those that people like to buy in grocery stores and fast food restaurants. To name some, there are the processed foods, junk foods, sweets and other foods that contain high fat.

The secret to alkalize your body is to basically eat more fruits and vegetables. Raw foods are high in alkalinity so try to serve fruit and vegetable salad more often to ensure you maintain your pH level or acid and alkaline intake.
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 Asparagus .


 PH factors what is it?

PH levels are Acid or Alkaline the PH scale is from 0-14
0-1-2-3-4-5-6-7-healthy-8-9-10-11-12-13-14
Human blood-ph=7.35-7.45

An acid ph can occur from acid forming foods/diet/drinks, emotional stress factors, allopathic medicines, birth control pills.(sweeteners like Aspartame, nutria - sweet, sweet n Low-All toxic)drinking soda’s, coffee, sugar, alcohol

Use a PH test strip to test your own PH levels everyday.
A high PH (over 7.0) will cause - inflammation, pain, uric acid, disease, immune breakdown.


Two emergency PH helpers are:


Bentonite Clay in water (drink a full glass with a tablespoon of clay) Or Baking Soda in a glass of water. These will reduce a high PH to a balanced 7.0 very Quickly! The problems are with these quick fix solutions are imminent results. But not long - term.


For long - term results one needs to change the dietary protocol,

  • No sugars,
  • No Dairy,
  • No salt,
  • No red meats,
  • No Alcohols

Extreme stress factors, like Divorce, loss of loved one, abuse, abandonment, homeless, war victims, rape, assaults, job loss, finance problems, marital imbalances - will all cause this PH level to go beyond 7.0 into dangerous stages and this is the manifestation of disease.


Here is a PH food chart.

Have a look at the table below to identify various foods’ pH-level. Each one is assigned a number which mirrors its approximate relative potential of alkalinity (+) or acidity (-) existent in one ounce (28.35g) of food. The higher the number, the better it is for you to eat.

PH Centric Foods ALKALINE

The charts below are provided for those trying to “adjust” their body pH through their diet. The pH scale is from 0 to 14, with numbers below 7 acidic (low on oxygen) and numbers above 7 alkaline.

These charts are intended only as a general guide to alkalizing and acidifying foods. Note that there may be some discrepancies between foods included on these charts.
