The pH scale is from 0 - 14

Human blood pH should be slightly alkaline ( 7.35 - 7.45 ). Below or above this
range means symptoms and disease. 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 occur.
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. A blood pH
of 6.9, which is only slightly acidic, can induce coma and death.
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 sweetners 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 and 40% acid
forming foods. To restore health, the diet should consist of 80% alkaline forming
foods and 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, and
Shifting Your pH Toward Alkaline...
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. What you eat and drink will impact where your body's
pH level falls. Balance is Key !!!

Dr Susan E. Brown's book begins by explaining what the acid/alkaline of your body has to do
with the acid/alkaline influence of foods. It then explains how the pH of foods, once eaten,
may change in your body as citric acid fruits, once digested, become alkaline.
Includes a listing of thousands of foods and their acid/alkaline ranges.
Dr. Ann Wigmore teaches that toxemia and deficiency are the root causes of all disease.
Deficiency that means that our bodies are undernourished, and are not receiving the proper
types and amount of food the body needs
Christopher Vasey, N.D. Explains how acidification of the body contributes to disorders such as chronic fatigue syndrome, eczema, and ulcers.
Categorizes food according to its acidifying or alkalizing effect on the body, rather than by chemical composition.
Contains food tables to help readers design the best diet for their health needs.
Dr. Michelle Schoffro Cook - The Ultimate pH Solution includes real-life success stories of people who have overcome
disease and lost weight by balancing their pH levels. Learn why high-protein diets and dairy products may be harmful.
