Eating a diet high in Alkaline foods is an effective form of Healthcare insurance! You can control the odds of developing disease by greatly increasing your consumption of veggies and fruits. Modern medicine undervalues the importance of a pH balanced diet. The real path to controlling Type 2 Diabetes and Obesity lies in eating a high alkaline foods diet of low omega 6 fat foods. The human body does not function well at all when eating a high fat, high acid-forming food diet every day. Eating lots of alkaline-forming foods that are abundant with phytonutrients and much needed minerals will usually keep your body in an alkaline, healthier state without over-taxing your body and its need to rob from other mineral deposits in the body in order to maintain proper pH balance. 

 Parents pass down their eating habits to their children who eventually become adults and teach the next generation of children the same disease-causing eating habits. We must teach our children to eat less refined fats. less processed sugars and starches. Those foods should be replaced by more alkaline-forming foods to promote health and to reverse disease. The Type 2 diabetes and obesity problem has gotten way out of control and it is time that the people start to take personal responsibility in choosing the correct style of foods to eat to beat disease. 

What are Acid and Alkaline-forming foods? 

READ CAREFULLY: A food is determined to be alkaline-forming after it is digested, not before. So a lemon is acid prior to digestion but becomes alkaline in the human body during the digestion process. The pH scale goes from 0 to 14. 0-7 is acid and 7.1 to 14 is alkaline. The human body attempts to maintain a PH balance of around 7.4 by withdrawing alkaline minerals from other locations including the bones, soft tissues, body fluids and saliva.

Too Much Acid-Forming Food Causes Poor Health!

 A diet that is too acid-forming is an indicator of poor health. Science has discovered that the diet of a healthy person is usually alkaline-forming or high pH. The diet of an unhealthy person is more likely to be acid-forming or low pH. Alkaline veggies and fruits have the ability to lower the risk of heart disease and stroke by 20 percent as found in research and long-term studies from Harvard. A study of 1,100 women published in the British Journal of Nutrition in 2008 found a strong link between a high acid-forming diet and increased risk of being overweight, having
High Blood pressure and having raised cholesterol.

 Other studies have found an acid-forming diet increases the stress hormone cortisol. Scientists have linked many degenerative diseases to a deficiency of alkaline food in the diet. These foods are extremely loaded with minerals and phytonutrients. The creative force of nature designed these disease-fighting foods to help keep us healthy. Try improving your diet's PH levels with a diet of 60-80% alkaline foods every day.

 Eating a low omega 6 fat, high alkaline food diet has been associated with reducing heart disease. Doctor's strongly encourage people to eat a diet high in veggies, fruits and Omega-3 fats. All forms of arthritis may be associated with excess acid-forming foods in the diet. Your body attempts to balance its pH by pulling calcium from both teeth and bones. Potassium and magnesium are also leached from the body to reduce acidity. This stresses the body and contributes to the aging process. Whatever health situation you are faced with, you can improve your progress toward a proper acid/alkaline balance by eating a diet high in alkaline foods daily.

 There has been research published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism stating that a high acid diet contributes very heavily to bone loss while a high alkaline diet prevents bone loss. This information could be very valuable to older people who may be fighting osteoporosis. Bone loss is a real problem among older people in the modern world and maybe we could minimize the problem by endorsing a high alkaline food diet among our senior citizens and those that are soon to be.

 The real reason you may have poor health is because of what you put in your mouth at every meal. And it isn't how "acid" something may taste when you eat or drink it. It has to do with what is left over after you digest it. Eating alkaline forming foods and eating them in large amounts can possibly help relieve or cure many people who need to fight disease or even possibly slow aging. The big medicine companies do not want you to know that you can ward off disease with natural, non-acidic foods. They would lose millions of dollars in revenue if everyone started to use the natural medicines that are growing abundantly around us and sell for practically pennies compared to prescription medicines. A high acid diet usually breeds disease and sickness. Eating a wide variety of veggies and fruits daily is the key to good health. The best way to keep your body disease-resistant without taking lots of drugs is to eat a diet high in alkaline foods every single day. 

The key to maintaining a healthy, disease-resistant body is to develop the habit of satisfying your hunger with foods that are nutrient rich and low in calories. This may be accomplished by eating an abundant amount of non-starchy vegetables, legumes (beans) and fruits; by eating a low amount of starchy vegetables and grains; and by eating only sparing amounts of nuts and seeds. These low fat vegan foods will give your body the nutrition it needs to fight invading bacteria and viruses. Most medical professionals insist that we eat a diet high in alkaline foods such as most veggies and fruits to keep diseases such as obesity and diabetes from developing. 


A vegan diet can be very effective against developing heart disease, obesity and diabetes. Doctors have been encouraging us to eat a diet high in veggies and fruit for many, many years and yet we still insist on consuming acidic foods by the truckload. These foods are a burden on our immune system and digestive system. They must be replaced by the foods that nature produces for us naturally from the earth. You must eat a wide variety of phytonutrients to best optimize your health.
